|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #351|
To prevent Hiruzen from being reinstated as Hokage, Danzō gave Tsuchinoto and nine other Root members a mission to assassinate him. Disguised as a foreign shinobi, he fought the Anbu accompanying his target, who turned out to be a disguised Kakashi, resulting in the mission's failure.
Tsuchinoto would always listen and do what Danzō wanted him to do.
Tsuchinoto has long, greyish-brown hair that he wears in a high ponytail. He wears a standard Anbu attire, and his mask has dark green markings.
- "Tsuchinoto" (己) is the sixth sign of the Chinese calendar.
- Tsuchinoto's name was only divulged in a Studio Pierrot Settei of Root members.
