I have added the following information under the "abilties" category, as it appears greatly relevant to Kisame's strength.

Kisame himself proved powerful enough to successfully capture the Yonbi Jinchuriki after beating him half to death, despite noting his target's exceptional powers. Though a difficult task by his own admission, Kisame merely complains that he is "a bit tired". This is quite a significant feat, when taken into account how quickly Jiraiya's personal summon, Gamabunta was overpowered by Shukaku, the Ichibi (one tail).

I'm not very confident in how it flows into the next subject, though. Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated. --~Mizukage~ 05:44, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

The last portion of said addition was removed for the following reason: "Not as signifigant as one would think because in many cases summons arent that all powerful."

This may be true in some cases, but should not apply to chief summons. Manda threatened Orochimaru's life on more than one occasion, oblivious to the fact that he had been handicapped at the time. Jiraiya and Gamabunta are called partners, but Jiraiya himself states that even he can't handle him very well. They are at least heavily implied to be peers in strength. --~Mizukage~ 21:35, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

My edit note isn't going to fit, so I'll leave it here.

I've changed this:

Kisame himself proved powerful enough to successfully capture the Four-Tailed Beast's Jinchūriki without much effort or damage on him, despite noting his target's exceptional powers. Though an hard task, Kisame merely complains that he is "a bit tired".

Back to this:

Kisame himself proved powerful enough to successfully capture the Four-Tailed Beast's Jinchūriki, despite noting his target's exceptional powers. Though a difficult task by his own admission, Kisame merely complains that he is "a bit tired".

It flows better - refering to the difficulty of the task twice is redundant. But not only that, it's inaccurate. It refers twice to the level of difficulty, but says something different in each case. "Without much effort" is at odds with "hard task".

The reason I'm bothering to post this here is to urge people not to edit just for the sake of editing - that section of text was fine as it was. It doesn't actually help us, but instead gives us more to fix. So be concious of the material you are editing. --~Mizukage~ 22:05, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Also. Since when is capturing hosts on his own not a major role? He did it once already and was sent (as Nolan said above) to capture the eight tails. That's pretty major in my book.

Dantheman 11.24

Needs citation / sounds biased

"Although Kisame does have his pride, he acknowledged Itachi as the stronger of the duo."

Cite this please.

its not biased, chapter 144(japanese version):

Kisame states "While you(Itachi) may be able to manage against him, I couldn't possibly...He's in a completely different level..."

by his own admission it was revealed that although he[Kisame] couldnt handle Jiraiya, maybe Itachi can...

And it seems logical that Kisame said he couldn't handle Jiraiya... why? Kisame is so strong by being able to suck the opponent's chakra and convert it for stamina, chakra for himself whatever etc. If he were to fight Jiraiya and the latter be forced to use Sage Mode, if Kisame were to suck that chakra... Samehada would have turned into a stone frog sword (get it?:)) like pain's preta path did) or he would have turned into a stone frog if he would have transferred the chakra to himself:D But this may sound like supposition, that is why we would have to see a battle between kisame and naruto to see if that would happen:D - MadaraU (talk) 13:55, November 14, 2009 (UTC)


i personally beleieve that Kisame is the most recurring memeber of akatsuki appearing with itachi mid-way through part 1 and still alive as one of the last three members, if you feel you must change this tidbit in the trivia section, PLEASE discuss it here.-- (talk) 17:48, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

this referance makes no sense

it says that karin never saw so much chakra in one place... and as referance it has the 8th one - naruto manga 260 page 16

but checking that page, it's the one about kakashi vs itachi... karin wasn't even introduced back then... any explination? -- (talk) 10:11, September 5, 2009 (UTC)

Someone must have changed the numbers. Cause it happen. Jacce | Talk 10:15, September 5, 2009 (UTC)

About the seven swordsmen

it sais that they were using particulary big weapons...whereas Raiga...a former member...used 2 one-handed short swords...I think you should look to change that passage...--Yumetai (talk) 20:00, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Well, Raiga is from an anime filler arc, which are hardly even canon... Mimixcarr (talk) 08:27, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
The second databook quite clearly stated that all the Swordsmen use large swords. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 09:10, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

the filler arc clearly states that Raiga was a seven swordsmen of the the mist i don look at the data books, and i dont know who makes them, but mashashito kishimoto has complete control over the anime episodes and i trust them more than the data books it is also possible that the data book had a mistake, and we know that us possible because one data book had zetsu as being from the hidden leaf village and we know hes not the data book prob had a mistake, or the person who makes them just assumed that they were all big swords (also, in the picture for the seven swordsmen of the mist, the guys on their knees as if bowing have thin swords like raigas, so that proves my point more) --Sauske-Blaze (talk) 03:08, November 14, 2009 (UTC)Sauske-Blaze

ROFL, Kishimoto is the one who makes the Databooks, so for you to say the databook has a mistake, means that you are saying that Kishimoto made a mistake of his own series. The anime, while approved of Kishimoto, is not under the direct control and directing of him from what I know, and many of the fillers are just fillers for the anime, so they can wait for the manga to get so distance between it's storyline and the anime, as anime episodes can at times cover 2-3 chapters at a time. As for the Zetsu thing, either a) the people who showed the information on the internet mistranslatied from the databook, or b) they got the information from a wrong source. Point is, the anime, while somewhat following the manga (Which IS cannon), is at times wrong, mostly during filler arcs, so Raiga is merely an filler character used to kill time. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 03:33, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

There is no reason to assume that Kishimoto cannot make a mistake in his databook. He has marked the "Rescue Kazekage" mission as A-rank, which is clearly wrong. It has to be a S-Rank mission, because you cannot possibly say that there are too many missions more important or difficult than rescuing the village leader of an ally, and yet a number of experienced characters in the Narutoworld have completed more than a handful S-Rank missions. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 04:18, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Dude... if Kishi says it is A-rank, and he like invented the mission difficulties (along with the rest of the Narutoverse), then it was an A-rank mission LOL. Besides it could have been named A-rank (in the story) because they (Konoha & friends) did not know what they were going up against (DEIDARA AND SASORI WERE THE FIRST AKATSUKI TO BE FOUGHT BY THE GOOD GUYS... in the open at least - trivia much?:D ) Bottom line for all the crazy things I heard in this talk: Databooks must be taken word for word (as long as they are correctly translated) Fillers: meh, the anime guys screw up even some canon stuff (such as when they made Pain's eyes yuch:))) so I am guessing they don't talk to Kishi too often - MadaraU (talk) 13:49, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, sure, if you want to take the easy way out (and let Kishi do the same), that's fine. As far as I am concerned, once the author has made some rules in the story, even he has to follow them consistently. If Kishi says in the next databook that Moegi is stronger than Kakashi and Jiraiya, and you say that it has to be correct because Kishi said so, then that's fine with me. I cannot do anything about it, and it's none of my business anyway. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 15:11, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

By the way, the rank of a mission is not decided after the mission by taking into account what happened during the mission. It is decided when the client comes to the Hokage and gives the details. In case of "Rescue Kazekage" mission, the Sand's messenger bird came with a message of Level 1 emergency alert, and the rank of the mission was to be decided there and then. If a level 1 emergency alert from an allied village does not call for a S-Rank mission, then what does? I was just wondering if Naruto were doing a D-rank dog walking mission, and Kisame appears on the scene to fight with him, then does the dog walking mission suddenly becomes a A-rank mission? LOL. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 15:16, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Random trivia note for you Geijutsu, in the manga it is an A rank, in the anime, S-rank mission. So many differences. Now as to WHY they might have put it as A-rank, I don't know honestly. Also, an A-rank is appropriate for rescuing a leader of a village, as A-rank can concern village or country-level problems. Had they known about Itachi and Kisame, they probably would have raised it to S-rank, for the fact of having to deal with around half of an Organization full of "S-rank" criminals. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 04:59, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

You are still saying the same thing. Let me emphasise it again. The rank of a mission is decided when the Hokage accepts the mission from the client, after going through the requirements mentioned by the client. It is not decided after the mission is completed, by analysing what happened during the mission.

Aside from that, the message from the sand said that "The Kazekage has been kidnapped by the Akatsuki", and that means you can pretty much assume that you have to go against the whole Akatsuki organization.

Then, you say that A-rank mission concerns the village or the country. If that is so, then what, according to you, is the concern of S-Rank missions? Just go through Jiraiya's trivia section. He has completed 138 S-Rank missions. Isn't it a little far-fetched to think that there are that many missions more important or more difficult than the "Rescue Kazekage" mission?

However, we have slightly deviated from the main point here. Someone here said that "Kishi writes the databooks, and there cannot be any mistakes in the databook", whereas my point was that, "Kishi is still a human being, and he can make mistakes." I just brought the "Rescue Kazekage" mission to illustrate my point. If you now say, "Kishi might make mistakes in the databook, but even so, we would accept that as right.", then I would agree with that, but if you keep saying, Kishi can never maki mistakes while writing databooks, then I certainly don't agree. I hope you agree with me on this one. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 05:14, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Alright, alright, while I had never said Kishi couldn’t make mistakes while making the databook, I admit I did imply it, but really, what are the chances of that happening? But I guess it could happen, he can make mistakes too, Killer Bee’s transformations are an example of that. However, when I first replied here, it was not Kishi making a mistake I was talking about, I was meaning to say to Sasuke-Blaze that the fillers are not cannon, or part of the real story, and Raiga is just a kill-time character. As for the S-rank/A-rank..... *Shrugs.* Either Kishi decided not to put it as an A-rank in the manga and later put it in the anime as S-rank, or there is some detail we don’t know about, like him making a mistake. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 00:33, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure if you're all completely aware of this, but Kishimoto-sensei has little to no input in the anime. The anime creators made a mistake with Raiga and with the ranking of the Kazekage rescue mission as well. From our point of view, Kishimoto-sensei is incapable of mistakes, unless he admits to one or contradicts himself. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 02:12, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Who are included in this "our"? You are worshipping him like Mikami of Death Note worshipped Yagami Raito. Kishi is not GOD, he is a human, and he can make mistakes, just like you and me. As I have said before, it is alright if you say that even if he makes a mistake, we would still accept it as right, but certainly not that he cannot make mistakes. There is nothing wrong in making mistakes, so there is nothing wrong in admitting that someone made a mistake. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 12:49, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

"Our" refers to the editors of this encyclopædia and to Naruto fans in general. I never said Kishimoto-sensei is incapable of making mistakes, what I meant was that it is impossible for us to know when he made a mistake, unless Kishimoto-sensei admits it or contradicts himself. So from the point of view of his fans and the editors here, everything Kishimoto-sensei says is correct. There is no point in arguing about whether or not he made a mistake.
So when Kishimoto-sensei says that the Kazekage rescue mission was A-rank, it was A-rank. When he says the Seven Swordsmen wield large swords, they wield large swords. Only if and when Kishimoto-sensei goes against these facts or says they are incorrect, can we assume they were mistakes. Until then, it is the anime that is incorrect. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 13:36, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Killer Bees transformations are a mistake? What a ignorant comment. Where do you go being above the author and telling him what is right?I can't believe what I am reading people so full of themselves they think they are over the author. Link to me where Kishi said you decide how missions are ranked or its bs. Mission ranks are decided after the client gives the details of the mission not after the mission is done. As for Jiraiya I doubt he rescued the hokage 138 times, nowhere did Kishi say that S-rank missions were saving kage level ninja, besides they're kage level ninja if they can't save themselves well thats a problem.Saimaroimaru (talk) 08:06, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

By the Killer Bee transformation mistake, I had meant the art mistake concerning where he is showing with eight-tails chakra cloak, when a character says he only has seven. Talk:Killer Bee's Jinchūriki Forms A few people have been debating over this since it happened, but it's mostly over now. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 03:18, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

um regarding the raiga thing.the swordsmen are an ever changing group of ninja who use swords.and although its apparently tradition to pass them makes since to think that members would use a sword of there own seeing as how members defect and take the swords with them and swords could break like example of this line of thinking is when zetsu tries to collect the rings of fallen akutsuki members but deidras blow up and orochimaru hid raigas swords might be small because these are the ones he has been using perhaps before for thought.-- (talk) 21:52, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

What is this?

Kisame seems to have a thing for a ninja S-Class title. As he sulked that Jiraiya's "Legendary Sannin" title sounded better than "Itachi of the Uchiha Clan" and "Monster of the Mist" - I don't get it... I was under the impression that what he meant was that if he and Itachi were to challenge Jiraiya, the names Uchiha and Seven Swordsmen would be put to shame. - MadaraU (talk) 12:20, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

I agree, it makes no sense. There isn't even such a thing as an S-class title. I'm removing it. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 15:14, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Kisame's head was removed from his body, but wich was the jutsu he was going to du before they do so? he maybe dead, maybe not.Jazy1993 (talk) 23:19, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

The fun thing is that - Kisame appears to be remarking about how fast he was attacked AFTER he was decapitated (his head flies up and appears to be upside down while he says that, grinning ).. I think he's going to survive this the same way Suigetsu can get cut in half etc - who knows, being ninjas of pretty much the same specialisation - perhaps Kisame can liquify / reform his body as well.. atleast to an extent.

Er... I'm pretty sure Kisame is dead. Think about it, he lost the cloak as well, and every one so far who's done that has died. --Hasofcd (talk) 06:26, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Kisame performed a last technique before his "death". Suiton: Daikoudan may be translated as Water Release: Big Shark Projectile or Water Release: Body Substitution. So, he may be alive. Shadow Abyss (talk) 08:58, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

He's dead,The Jutsu he used(or try to) was "Big Shark Bullet."

User:GohanRULEZ|Sting! TenRyuoh!]] 10:17, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure about his death because he said that he wasn't match for their speed after being decapitated. This is not the first time he survived a fatal blow, some chapters ago his chest was fully opened at point his ribs were exposed and he has not died or fainted. I think it is better to wait for more informations. Shadow Abyss (talk) 18:53, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

I think it's safe for him to be presumably deceased, though. Hasofcd (talk) 20:26, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

He's definitely dead. He did survive a fatal blow but that was cuz he used Samehada to heal he doesnt have Samehada so he cant heal n plus if he did have Samehada there's no way it cood put his head back together. Kisame is dead--Moiz1224 (talk) 20:52, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

I think we ought to put «presumably deceased» instead of «deceased» in the infobox --Sennoman (talk) 18:48, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

I didn't realise that a topic had been opened for this, before I made a similar comment on another topic below. There is not enough reason to convince us that Kisame is dead. I am not saying that he is not dead, just that we do not know yet.

Reason 1: He lost the Akatsuki cloak, and everyone who lost the cloak, has died. - There is no rule that everyone who has lost the cloak should die. It has so happened until now, but there is no reason to assume that the author would not change the pattern this time. Moreover, wouldn't it be easier for Kakashi and Naruto to just hold Madara and take off his cloak? Presto! He is dead. Sorry, that is absurd.

Reason 2: He does not have Samehada anymore. - What makes you think that Kisame has no other powers of his own? Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 14:36, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Well if the manga stays true to the human anatomy for one he wouldnt be able to talk no vocal cords or no muscles to push air through his mouth and weve seen itahci die like 100 times so kisame should have some sort of that technequi

I don't know about Kisame dying by decapitation. As far as I know, sharks are able to bite an hour after their head was severed from their body cause most of their nerves are located in their head. Perhaps not only Kisames appearance but also part of his anatomy is similar to that of a shark.

Fucked Up Imagery

in the last few chapters we have seen inconcistency with dialouge and images (like kirabis nuber of cloaks) but in chapter 473 page 8 it CLEARLY showed his final Words WHILE HIS DECAPITED HEAD WAS LIKE 15 FEET IN THE AIR. not only that rather then getting out of the way and not in the least bit being suprised he just stood there and let the attaack him at least that gets a notable mention.--Nintendo-Fan (talk) 06:53, November 28, 2009 (UTC)Nintendo-Fan

He was trying to use a jutsu to counter. In addition, Kisame and Ē were moving so fast that he would have had little, if any, time to dodge.--Enoki911 (talk) 03:27, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Mr. Gayjutsu, stop acting like you know so much hi isnt hidan his head flew of, he might not be dead it could be the jutsu he used before with only more of his chakra , But he is dead untill the autoer says hes alive, but he is dead for now. Kouseki (talk) 19:02, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Hidan had immortality as long as he kept killing people, Kisame didn't. And him being wrong doesn't give you the right to be rude to him, so keep your opinions to yourself. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:35, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Huh! That's a strange rule. A person is considered alive until he is confirmed dead. Here, it looks like things work the opposite way. A person is dead until he is confirmed alive. Great. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 04:26, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah Yeah, let's just forget about the fact that this part of discussion is about Kisame's last word and his head flew clearly from his neck, unless his a worm, I doubt Kisame is walking any minute now, also, with Raikage around I doubt he can be alive much longer even if he were.

No, that was a strange rule of thumb I've been trying very hard to snuff out. It's stupid to assume someone is alive when they were clearly shown to be killed. Someone being beheaded is an obvious death, and the person is then dead until proven otherwise.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 04:49, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, so even Sasuke was "dead" when Deidara used his C0, and then became "alive" after it was revealed that he teleported with Manda's help. Fine, do whatever you want. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 04:56, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Sasuke survived because he summoned Manda and went into Manda's mouth and Deidara went boom. Either way he was considered dead until Suigetsu summoned him and Sasuke came out of is mouth. But either way he was considered dead until he was proven alive.--SixthMizukage (talk) 05:27, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Even if Kisame is capable of surviving with his head cut off, or living as a disembodied head, it doesn't matter, because it was Kakuzu who patched up disembodied Akatsuki members, and Kakuzu is dead now. If Kisame survived, he's as valuable as Hidan now. Remembering that this is a manga and anatomy doesn't actually count for anything, I think he said it with his last breath, before the whole dying thing kicked in.

The man was decapitated. Everyone nearby seemed to think he was dead. With Samehada's defection, Kakuzu's death, and Orochimaru's permanent sealing, he has no clear way to heal himself. Enough said.--Enoki911 (talk) 04:40, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

a speed trivium

I propose we add a trivium saying that Kisame's only weakness seems to be his susceptibility to blitz attacks. He actually died twice while uttering "you're too fast", both times when he was already done for. This could be noted, because it was a repeated occurrence. Xfing (talk) 00:54, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Just to throw this out there: this is yet another reason why we should not be switching to past tense when a character "dies". ~SnapperTo 23:51, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Technically speaking, the most grammatically correct and logically sound way would be to always use the present tense for whatever happens during the actual series. Even if a character dies at some point, we should still keep the present tense, because the character is still alive at another point in the series. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 00:06, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Astrological trivia

On Sasori's page, there's a trivia note that his astrological sign is, appropriately, Scorpio/scorpion. Kisame is Pisces, which is a fish sign: [1]. If Sasori has such trivia note, should Kisame have it too? --Kiadony (talk) 07:29, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

Add it if you want but remember, there is no shark sign. ¥ Super Novice Talk 2 Me ¥ 07:35, April 4, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, but Kishimoto obviously thinks of such things: many characters have Zodiac signs that match their elements (Naruto is Libra - air, and his nature is Wind; Deidara is Taurus - earth, and his nature is Earth as well). So I believe he gave Kisame the Pisces sign on purpose, too. If there was a Shark sign, Kisame would have it. --Kiadony (talk) 07:41, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

After he fused with samehada, can kisame breath without water? 16:59, July 9, 2010, (UTC)

Itachi's Death

How did Kisame react to Itachi's death? ( (talk) 19:31, July 16, 2010 (UTC))

Is it just me, or is it convinient that Kishi brought Kisame back for the first time in months during Shark Week? --Ikkaku Madarame' File:RyumonHozukimaru.gif 02:17, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, Kishimoto-sensei has used his amazing skills to calculate exactly when he had to draw the chapter with Kisame's reappearance so that a few week later it would be published exactly the Monday after a pseudo-randomly planned theme week was aired on a TV channel in the United States. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 08:40, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Escape From Bee and Co.

Here, does it look like he is moving fast inside of a water shark (eye to the right?). And what is with that scroll (odd place to hide something even if he could write), so would it be some sort of writing jutsu gor reports? Thomas Finlayson (talk) 02:44, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

It was the same suikodan that Kisame had just used to catch Guy off guard, and i guess it was never meant for full force but as a diversion. As for the scroll, he most likely wrote it while inside Samehada I think, and it coming out of his mouth screams Orochimaru. But it could have been some sort of summoning such as Jiraiya with Gerotora or Gamatora. --SixthMizukage (talk) 03:46, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

So that means that the Suikodan can be used for transport as well (a ways from where it was fired at Guy). I think a summoning is more likely, because I am not exactly sure how he could have written that. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 18:11, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

It may not be logical, seeing as no visible hands were shown while kisame was in samehada, but he apparantly wrote it while in their.--SixthMizukage (talk) 23:23, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

I was talking more about space to move and the fact all he is shown wearing when was skin-tight pants; not even a pouch to carry a pencil and scroll. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 05:29, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Well, obviously he can store stuff inside his mouth and he certainly isn't unique in that respect. It isn't that ridiculous to think he also has a pen in there. You don't need that much space to write, either. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 08:08, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Fair point about storing other things in his mouth, but it had been by assumption (no personal experience) that you needed a bit of room to write on a scroll like that. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 18:13, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Just a little bit, though. You'd be amazed how resourceful people can be when push comes to shove. If Kisame had room to move inside Samehada, he could write. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 23:19, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Remember the sword was flat, and not distorted by Kisames body. I think its safe to say bonding with his sword in this way gives his body a quality not unlike Soft Physique Modification. Having room to write may not have been an issue. Arrancar79 (talk) 23:49, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm...fair enough. And the traveling through the water part? Thomas Finlayson (talk) 02:26, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
I agree, He looks like he's inside his water shark. I think it should be noted in the jutsu. Arrancar79 (talk) 02:34, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Its already been put on the jutsu page.--Deva 27 (talk) 02:36, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Whoops, thanks. I should have checked. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 04:20, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Chakra absorption and vitality

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if there should be something about how Kisame's Chakra levels seem to affect the physical state of his body. For example, during chapter 506, after Samehada stops being fused with Kisame, he looks malnourished. His ribcage can clearly be seen and much of his musculature has apparently atrophied. A few seconds later, after Kisame grabs Samehada and drains some of Killer bee's chakra, his body bulks up again and he regains a more healthy appearance, while the latter begins to collapse. Also, sorry for being anonymous. My browser's cookies are being retarded.

The malnourishment may have been a result of not eating during his stay with Samehada Inn, not necessarily low chakra levels. However, replenishing his chakra does seem to help him bulk up. That or being underwater (notice the bubbles). Or maybe even a combination of the two. ~SnapperTo 00:16, August 23, 2010 (UTC)
It definitely looked like it was in response to the chakra to me... it probably is worth mentioning. ZeroSD (talk) 00:18, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Where exactly should we list that Kisame is capable of some chakra absorption on his own? He wasn't holding Samehada when he drained Aoba's chakra through his technique. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:38, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

His Abilities, in its own section. Thats what we do with special qualities of other characters Fangzntalonz (talk) 00:04, August 26, 2010 (UTC)


this page needs more of them. -WhiteArmor-(Talk)- 13:54, September 2, 2010 (UTC)


i think we should wait and see if kisame is really dead, we dont really know if kisame was the last shark he summonded to get the message

Sign your posts and we saw a final flashback and his last words. He's dead. And he knew we wouldn't escape from Konha nins and Kumo nins so he killed himself. Also... I don't think Kishimoto would do the same thing twice. --KiumaruHamachi (talk) 14:09, September 3, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi


Shouldnt it be mentioned that even after death, Kisame was able to send the info he found on Kumo to Akatsuki? Thus fulfilling his final mission by Madara??--SixthMizukage (talk) 02:38, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

That he sent the message, sure, but we don't know if Madara'll successfully get it. ZeroSD (talk) 04:54, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Oh okay sorry for speculating then.--SixthMizukage (talk) 04:58, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Probable translation error

"Madara has Noted That, out of all of Akatsuki, Kisame Was the Closest to Itachi."

I know that this is a common error related to an incorrect translation of Chapter 404. In that chapter, page 1, third panel, Madara actually says that Kisame is the person, seen as an ally, closest to him (recently confirmed by the flashbacks of Kisame) and not to Itachi. Could someone confirm it and edit the article if necessary?

Here the "incriminated" panel: thumb --JK88 (talk) 18:30, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

It was already removed. ~SnapperTo 22:58, September 7, 2010 (UTC)


"He was very loyal to Itachi, not only willing to take any commands he was given without question but always asks Itachi for permission to take action proven when he asked Itachi for permission to kill Asuma who was annoying him, and constantly looked out for his well-being for instance, after Itachi used Tsukuyomi on Kakashi, Kisame warned that Itachi risked overusing his eyes which is dangerous"

I have not made a chaneg to this but an editor should. This is subjective stuff, fanon and not canon, and should be removed as motives and actions are being ascribed to the character that are not established in the text or anime by Kishimoto. And I assume they are not in the text because they aren't so.

He does not "always ask Itachi" for permission in CANON, because they do not always operate together. Kisame is more than able to conduct fights on his own and win them without Itachi's input. He asks Itachi if he should kill Asuma in Konoha but whether its humour or a genuine request only Kisame knows.

I am not seeing him being unquestioning in the face of Itachi's orders either. In fact in canon he DOES question Itachi a couple of times over the capturing of the jinchuuriki even if ultimately he goes along with Itachi's plans. he questions him once in the hotel and again in the woods after he has captured his own.

Finally this stuff about how he's so caring and such for Itachi... this is not supported in canon by any explanation as to why Kisame is so keen to remind Itachi that using his eyes is dangerous. It is just as possible that he is concerned about this because it affects his OWN welfare - logically, if his partner is weakened then they are both in danger. There's no grief or even sadness shown after Itachi dies. When Itachi is standing out in the rain and Kisame comments that "it looks like you're crying" he has an ebil smirk on his face, not a sympathetic smile.

There is no supporting evidence to suggest that he is overly caring, and especially given what we have now seen in the flashback before he died - it's pretty damn clear that the mission comes first, to Kisame - regardless of who he is on that mission with. He spells this out to Itachi, even. Their dynamic is clearly shown to be one of respect and tension, of contained violence and the awareness that they could probably kill each other. It's like a cold war relationship. (talk) 14:17, September 13, 2010 (UTC)Mawb

i think he was as caring as a psychopathic Shark-man can be and considering itachi was part of his obligatory end of life flashback we can assume that he thought of him. Also, using logical reasoning we can discern that other than pain and konan the two of them got on the best, if you look at hidan and kakkuzu (i really still cant spell his name, i know thats wrong i just dont know how),they clearly do not like each oter very much, while diedara ad sasori shared a love of art i got the feeling that sasori was annoyed by deidara a lot of the time, further more deidara absolutely could not stand tobi when they were partnered, compared to the aforementioned examples kisame and itachi were amicable to say the least.

Going back to the flashback point, if you look at other characters epilogue flashbacks they often think of the closet people to them, i think you are taking the wiki's rules about not writing anything that isnt explicitly stated in the manga to far, Madara took the eyes right out of his brothers head so does that therefore ean they were hated enemies? There i enough information in the whole manga not just the parts directly involving kisame and itachi to see that within the Akatsuki they were pretty much best freinds. on the subject of kisames evil smile, i dont think he can do a non-evil smile, in fact the only other expressions he has are angry face and 'oh no im about to die' face.

Incorrect information

In Kisame's profile under his abilities it's listed that in his fused form with Samehada that he can siphon your chakra just by touching you, but that is incorrect. During his battle with Killer Bee, when Killer Bee grabbed Kisame with his tentacles, we see Samehada's spikes emerging from Kisame's arm fin and are piercing Killer Bee in the chest.

In addition, it's simple enough for Samehada to siphon off Killer Bee's Bijuu shroud since it's exposed. For Samehada to siphon chakra from within your body, it has to pierce you.—This unsigned comment was made by UltimateDeadpool (talkcontribs) .
