Tsuchikage hat

The Tsuchikage's hat.

The Tsuchikage (土影, Literally meaning: Earth Shadow) is the Kage of Iwagakure, a title bestowed on the village's leader. The Tsuchikage is generally regarded as the strongest shinobi in the village. Iwa ninja obey the Tsuchikage's every command without hesitation.[1] Over time, Iwagakure gained a poor reputation for the underhanded tactics which their Tsuchikage employed such as taking advantage of alliances even in times of peace.[2][3] The Tsuchikage resides in the tallest building in Iwa: a stone building with a cone-shaped roof that bears the kanji for Tsuchi (, Literally meaning: Earth).
