"The Bounty Hunter from the Wilderness" (敵か味方か!?荒野の賞金稼ぎ, Teki ka Mikata ka!? Kōya no Shōkinkasegi) is episode 159 of the original Naruto anime.


Naruto, Hinata and Kiba accept what they believe will be an very easy mission to catch a criminal. Upon arriving at the thief's last known location however, they learn that another bounty hunter, Sazanami, is pursuing the thief and also that he is a skilled swordsman. Sazanami is later wounded in the battle and Naruto's group takes him to safety, but discover that he too is a wanted criminal when a bounty hunter tried to catch him.


  • When Sazanami (Tokichi) is bound with ropes by the villagers, he does not have his sword. However, when he cuts through with a pocket knife and escapes, he has the sword in his hand.
