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 was similar to Kaiza, and died in the similar manner trying to do the best for his countrymen. 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 the village.
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 scythe in his confrontation with Kandachi it can be assumed he was proficient in its use.
