Torifu Akimichi (秋道トリフ, Akimichi Torifu) is a Konohagakure shinobi and a member of the Akimichi clan.



During the First Shinobi World War he was part of a team consisting of Tobirama Senju, Hiruzen Sarutobi, Koharu Utatane, Homura Mitokado, Danzō Shimura, and Kagami Uchiha. When they were being chased by Kumogakure's Kinkaku Force and Kagami surmised that someone had to lure them away from the rest of the squad Torifu said whoever that person was would essentially be a sacrifice. Along with the rest of his comrades he witnessed Tobirama declare Hiruzen the Third Hokage.[2]

Decades later he was seen alongside Hiruzen, Homura, and Koharu and other shinobi directly engaging the Nine-Tails after it was set loose on the village.[3] When they were finally able to drive the beast outside the village's limits, Hiruzen called for them to continue to attack the beast.


Torifu has short spiky brown hair and dark markings around his eyes. Like all other member of the Akimichi clan, he has a very robust build and markings on his cheeks - another custom of his clan. In his youth, he wore the standard black suit and armour of the time, hand-guards, forehead protector modelled to resemble a hat and carried a pouch tied to his back. Several years later during the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha, Torifu now noticeably older, wore a more modern style of armour with his clan's obligatory kanji for "food" (食, shoku) on it. He also carried a and a shield that was reminiscent of a sakazuki.[4]


Although the full extent of his abilities are unknown, as an Akimichi, Torifu can convert calories into chakra in order to perform his clan's secret techniques. He was also seemingly proficient with wielding a bō and also used a shield in battle.[4]


  • When Torifu débuted in chapter 481, he had the custom marking on his cheeks that all known Akimichi have. However, when seen during the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha in both the Weekly Shōnen Jump and tankōbon release, these markings were not present.[3]
