Sukune (スクネ, Sukune) was a villager of the Genjutsu Tree Village.


Sukune was a brave man who never gave up hope of defending his village against Kandachi. He died trying to defend his village. His son Tanishi at first, detested him, but when he saw the meaning of his death, began to love him. He was buried in the village's graveyard.


He is known to be respected in his village. He was a brave individual who died defending his village. Jiraiya noted that Sukune was a kind man.


Sukune had long black hair and dark-coloured eyes. His bangs hung over his forehead and he wore a blue V-neck type shirt with the V-neck being green-coloured.


Chilli Pepper Pill

Sukune using Chilli Pepper Bombs.

He is shown to be fairly strong from the civilian's standpoint, capable of decent accuracy with the Chilli Pepper Bombs and able to endure several attacks by the Conch King, but his skills were not nearly equal to those of a ninja. Due to his use of a kama in his confrontation with Kandachi it can be assumed he was proficient in its use.

Part II

Past Arc: The Locus of Konoha

Jiraiya mentions that Sukune and his family were very kind to him when he visited the Genjutsu Tree Village the first time, and is sad to hear of his death when he returns with Naruto later.


  • Sukune's attitudes and the way he died are similar to Kaiza's from the Land of Waves. Both of them resisted the invaders of their country, and therefore they were killed.
