Tonbo Tobitake (飛竹トンボ, Tobitake Tonbo) is a chūnin-level shinobi of Konohagakure and a member of the Konoha Torture and Interrogation Force in the Intelligence Division.


Tonbo, at first glance gives off a very collected and cool persona. He is described as being very confident in his abilities although not haughty enough to not acknowledge someone else's talent. He is also somewhat rash and quick-tempered by nature as witnessed when he roughed up Komaza to get his point across.[3]


The upper half of his face is completely wrapped in bandages and his forehead protector is drawn all the way over his eyes. He usually has a cigarette in his mouth and wears the standard uniform of the Intelligence Division which comprises of a grey suit. He also wears bandages around his legs and the standard Konoha shinobi sandals.

Part I

Chūnin Exam Arc

Tobo roughs up Komaza

Tonbo roughs up Komaza.

Tonbo made his first appearance during the written section of the Chūnin Exams as one of the various shinobi looking out for cheaters. When he caught Komaza cheating five times, Komaza protested saying there was no way that they could keep an eye on everyone and accurately keep track of the number of times they were caught. This caused Tonbo to knock him into a wall telling him that the people there were "elite" chūnin chosen for this task specifically and that they wouldn't miss a single thing they did.

Mizuki Strikes Back Arc

In the anime, Tonbo and Iwashi Tatami alerted Tsunade about Mizuki and the Legendary Stupid Brothers having escaped prison together.

Land of Vegetables Arc

Later, he accompanies Iwashi, Mozuku, Shizune, and Shikamaru Nara to take the Land of Vegetables from Renga.

Part II

Invasion of Pain Arc

Torture and Interrogation Unit

Tonbo aiding in the interrogation process.

Tonbo, along with Shimon Hijiri and Mozuku, aided in Inoichi Yamanaka's Mind Reading of Yūdachi. He complimented the speed at which Inoichi could read his memories, although Mozuku harshly scolded him for not concentrating on probing Yūdachi. When the invasion of Pain starts, they help distract the Animal Path to give Inoichi a chance to analyse what he has learned.


Naruto 5: Blood Prison

During Naruto's flashback to the members of the village when he was gathering natural energy to enter Sage Mode, Tonbo can been seen amongst the villagers.


  • "Tonbo" is Japanese for 'dragonfly'. Dragonflies are famous for their 360° vision, which is ironic considering that Tonbo's eyes and upper face are covered with bandages. While "Tobitake" means 'flying [through] the bamboo'. A taketonbo (竹とんぼ) is a small bamboo toy that flies when spun between the palms of your hands. So Tonbo's full name could also mean 'flying taketonbo'.
