|Three Brothers (三兄弟, Sankyōdai; Literally meaning "Three Brothers")|
|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #239|
|Appears in||Anime only|
The Three Brothers (三兄弟, Sankyōdai) is a team from Iwagakure that chased down Kosuke Maruboshi in an attempt to retrieve valuable information that he had stolen from them. Their efforts were however thwarted by Team Asuma using their Formation Ino–Shika–Chō.
The Three Brothers showed excellent teamwork, their individual abilities complementing each other, with Kosuke lamenting that they did not have any apparent weaknesses and that he was most certain to be killed by them. The team themselves noted that no one had ever escaped their clutches.
All three brothers seemed to have some level of speed as it often seemed that they were skating on the ground instead of running on it — whether or not this is use of Earth Release is unknown however.
