Teguse (テグセ, Teguse) is a poor man living in the Land of Waves.
Teguse wasn't above stealing from strangers.
Teguse has a bald head and small black eyes. He wears a green-coloured hat and what appears to be a black unzipped trench coat. He also has a black moustache.
Prologue — Land of Waves
He tried to steal Sakura Haruno's purse, but she mistook him for a pervert and kicked him in the face.
- Teguse (手癖, also written as "Tekuse") translates into "having sticky fingers" or "compulsive thievery", alluding to the character's criminal activities.
- In Naruto: Konoha Ninpōchō, Teguse appears again after his failed attempt to steal Sakura. He fights Sakura with a knife, but isn't strong enough to defeat her and flees.
