Kisei Kumo (規正 雲, lit. "Death Cloud") is an S-class missing-nin hailing from Kumogakure. He is a known threat to the stability of the Allied Shinobi Forces, and his crimes include espionage, blackmail, kidnapping, illegal arms dealing and smuggling, illegal human trafficking, and public indecency. Kisei's wanton and repeated violation of national borders and sovereignty has resulted in numerous rebellions, bloody conflicts, and disruptions of peace and security.

His smuggling ring, which goes by many names but is conventionally recognized as Tsukinoiri (月の入り, lit. "Moonset") is wide-reaching and loosely organized, with each cell operating blindly with respect to the others. This lack of a central leadership makes identifying and routing the organization challenging, since any given cell can be easily replaced. The only common thread among Tsukinoiri is the 'Spider' himself; a jutsu or technique of Kisei's own creation has allowed the smugglers to rapidly and safely ferry goods, services and people across the world with ease and without international oversight. Disabling and capturing this dangerous individual may be key to dismantling the influence of Tsukinoiri.


Kisei plainly looks like a badass. At a whopping six foot, five inches in height, his toned, muscular body radiates a deadly ferocity. The bangs of his tangled white hair partially obscure his eyes and a perpetual frown. His toothy mouth is fixed in a grin of proud self-confidence, and his slanted posture speaks of a relaxed and carefree attitude.

The sclera of his left eye is strangley black, and a close examination reveals the glowing red iris is a set of overlapping glass lenses housed within the dark metal orb. The emotionless synthetic eye gives Kisei's already beast-like features an even more predatory appearance. A jaunty black eye-patch normally covers the false eye. Likewise, the reinforced metal prosthetic arm on Kisei's right side bears many scars and dents, evidence of its value to Kisei as a life-saving tool. The missing eye and arm hint at a history of risky combats and near death experiences.

His attire is made of high grade materials such as black silk, and his armor appears to be made from high-grade steel. A strange, segmented sword akin to the teeth of a chainsaw is wrapped around a metal plate that Kisei wears around his waste.


It's hard to summarize Kisei's personality in a single word, but if it was, that word would be "quirky". Kisei is funny and unserious, but has a dry, almost caustically cynical worldview. He's lazy and laid back, but is also a clever and industrious person. Kisei is a wanted criminal with a bounty of hundreds of thousands of ryo to his name, but he refuses to kill. Kisei is a world traveler with experience and wisdom, but he spends most of his free time reading manga and playing with his "dolls". Kisei Kumo is a host of contradictions... but at the same time, he is a very simple person. At his deepest, Kisei really just loves being a ninja. Ninja stars, ninja swords, ninja outfits. Ninja techniques, ninja fighting, ninja stealthiness. He lives and breathes to be a ninja, to play the role of the stealthy hero in black, accomplishing feats of impossible glory.

With that in mind, Kisei doesn't take himself or other people very seriously. He largely sees the roles society places upon people as immaterial. He disregards the notion of pride in a ninja village or loyalty as just another personal indulgence, like his manga. This lack of respect for the rules extends to more than just his relationships however, as he also refuses to acknowledge the laws and restrictions that governments and institutions enforce. Because of his own experiences growing up, being denied his true calling by Kumogakure, Kisei believes that every person should have the freedom to choose his own destiny.

Kisei's habits have rewarded him with a handful of well-earned monikers. His alias among the members of Tsukinoiri is "Spider", since there is a prevailing view that he somehow controls the organization from behind the scenes, like a spider in a web. This isn't strictly true, since the cells of the organization act mostly autonomously, but he hasn't really endeavored to dispel this view. Among his friends, they often refer to him as "parasite" because he has a bad habit of borrowing money without paying it back. Among his enemies, few as there are, he is called "faker", since he has never been trained under a village and has never, apart from the bounties for his crimes, been formally recognized as a shinobi.


Kisei began his career as a "retriever" in his mid-teens, and worked freelance for various smugglers and criminals in the underworld. Despite some mishaps, he established a reputation for success regardless of the odds, and his ninja skills advanced as he faced greater and greater challenges. In spite of the obstacles, he was able to overcome thanks to his innovation and cunning. On a few occasions, however, he has not come out unscathed. During a high-ranking data recovery mission in Amegakure, Kisei was maimed in an encounter against Shichiro Chiyo, losing both his right arm and left eye in the engagement. He narrowly escaped and survived, but the loss of the limb and eye forced him to replace them with prosthetic parts.

Over the last ten years, Kisei has invented a series of new techniques that allow him to cash in on his ninja training, and directly contributed to the formation and operations of Tsukinoiri. One thing he came to realize, is that regardless of extenuating circumstance- be it war, or genocide, or rebellion, or natural disaster- people want things moved. Information, people, goods... there is always a market for swift and easy transportation.

Thanks to his study and advances in chakra thread creation, remote puppetry and his experimentation with the summoning seal, he has created a vast network of linked summoning seals that spans the entire world. This world-wide chakra web (also known as "the internet") allows for the transference of any good or service at near-instant speeds. He has used his black market connections and reputation to draw in smugglers and illicit traders he can trust, and from them has formed the cells of his smuggling ring. Tsukinoiri has become a reliable resource for missing nin, smugglers, spies and even ninja villages, as it allows for speedy and safe insertion and extraction from hostile zones.


Chakra Vampire

Kisei's body does not produce chakra on its own due to a deficiency in his liver. This complication prevents his other organs from producing chakra naturally (this serves to slow down or even halt his rate of natural healing ordinarily). Unlike Rock Lee, Kisei's chakra circulatory system is intact and he can retain chakra reserves. By coming into contact with another living thing or a focused source of chakra, Kisei can absorb its chakra through his tenketsu and into his own body. By passing the stolen chakra through his circulatory system, he converts elementally-natured chakra into basic Yin-Yang. This increase of the flow of Yin-Yang chakra through his organs causes him to rapidly heal from injuries. If Kisei is not able to acquire other sources of chakra, he'll eventually die as his body cannibalizes its own life-energy. Kisei has figured out how to extend the range of his chakra consumption through the use of chakra threads. Kisei is able to discern the elemental nature of a chakra source based on its "taste". If Kisei's chakra reserves exceed his natural capacity due to chakra absorption, the excess power causes internal injuries (in a similar fashion to a gate release).

  • Kyūketsuki (吸血鬼, lit. "Vampire"): This is an advanced chakra absorption technique developed by Kisei. By expelling a large number of chakra threads from his left hand, Kisei can use them to envelop the effects of a jutsu and rapidly absorb the chakra composing it. By immediately expelling the absorbed chakra from his left hand, he can recompose the elemental-natured chakra into ninjutsu-like effects similar to the absorbed technique. Functionally, this allows him to absorb and reflect elemental-natured attacks and jutsu back at his foes. Kisei does not retain the ability to perform the releases afterwards, and does not memorize jutsu absorbed in this fashion.
  • Execution by Kiss: Kisei possesses a self-developed variation of this technique, whereby he fires a bundle of chakra threads out of his mouth and down the throat of his opponent. Unlike the version used by Fūka, Kisei does not adopt the releases or techniques of his foes, just their chakra. The benefit of this technique is that Kisei can bypass the restrictions of chakra absorption imposed by using tenketsu as a medium; he can draw out the chakra of his opponent all at once. If his chakra reserve is substantially exceeded, Kisei will suffer drawbacks similar to those imposed by a gate release.

Zero-tails Jinchūriki

Over the course of many years, the Reibi grew in power as it fed on the negative emotions of Kisei. After Kisei discovered he could enter and interfere with the dreams of other people using genjutsu, the Zero-tails began consuming his victims' nightmares. It rapidly grew in strength until it managed to overcome Kisei's will and possess him. If not for the interference of Akemi Hyuga, the spirit would have succeeded in its attempt to manifest a living body.

Kisei is gripped by a paranoid fear of sleep as a consequence of his possession by the Reibi. He is terrorized by the monster in his sleep and dreams, and consequently has developed acute hypnophobia. He goes for days without rest, until he eventually collapses from the mental exhaustion. He often drinks energy drinks and takes other stimulants to supplement the perpetual fatigue he feels.

  • Dark Chakra: The dark chakra of the Zero-tails is bound within a seal atop Kisei's liver. This seal serves to collect and contain the dark chakra and negative emotions within Kisei. It correctly functions.. mostly. Whenever Kisei sleeps, he is being hunted by the Reibi in an endless nightmare game of hide and seek. Moreover, every time he uses dream genjutsu, the Reibi consumes a bit of the nightmares and negative feelings of his victims.
As a pseudo-jinchūriki, Kisei does not have a passive form of regeneration. He is conferred a power of the evil spirit, however; he has gained the power to detect negative feelings and emotions in proximity around him.
In times of dire emergency, such as when he is at risk of total chakra starvation, or when the integrity of the seal is compromised, Kisei can draw upon the dark chakra of the Zero-tails. This dark chakra restores his chakra reserves, allows his body to regenerate from lethal injuries, and its insidious nature warps his mind. Any sense of restraint in relation to mercy or self-harm are abandoned as Kisei is possessed by an insatiable desire to inflict suffering and fear upon his enemies. His own negative emotions then serve as a power source for the zero-tails, as it converts these feelings into dark chakra.
Additionally, if the dark chakra of the Zero-tails infests a puppet, it is capable of animating the puppet with malice. These puppets attack any living thing they perceive, and attempt to restrain and capture their enemies in order to supply the Reibi with sources of negative emotion. These dark puppets are more resiliant to damage than ordinary. Chakra threads and webbing infused with dark chakra are also tougher and more difficult to cut or destroy.
The Zero-tails itself is capable of using a small number of genjutsu-related powers when it possesses Kisei, or when it is manifested within a dream. These jutsu include Hell-Viewing Technique, Jibakugan, and Soulbane.


  • Kugutsu no Jutsu (傀儡の術, lit. "Puppet Technnique"): Kisei's specialization in the ninja arts is puppetry. His master, Soga Yotsugi, taught him the basics of puppetry, but in his time since the Chūnin Exams he has studied and learned much more. His mastery of the craft of puppetry is unparalleled, except perhaps by his own master.
Mental Projection Technique: Kisei is able to create a mental projection of his personality within a puppet by concentrating and maintaining a connection to the puppet via a chakra thread or web. This allows him to control the puppet as though it were his own body. Doing so leaves his original body vulnerable to attack, since his consciousness is preoccupied with controlling the puppet.
Childhood Puppets: Kisei Kumo still possesses his original three puppets, keeping them mainly out of a sense of sentimentality. They have been replaced by upgraded variants of his own design.

"Vileness of the Centipede"

Mukade Kotsuzui (百足 骨髄, lit. "Bone Centipede"): This puppet is composed of hundreds of articulated, bladed joints made of bone. This is an advanced and far larger version of Hebi Kotsuzui, and sports many times the bladed limbs.
  • Poison Blades: The blades of Mukade Kotsuzui excrete a caustic, flesh-melting acid.
  • Coiled Strike: The coiled body of Mukade Kotsuzui is capable of striking foes up to a distance the full length of its body, an astonishing fifty feet. This strike happens nigh instantaneously.
  • Multi Strike: Mukade Kotsuzui is capable of attacking with every limb on its body and in nearly every direction. This allows it to tear apart large numbers of enemies with ease as it attacks indiscriminately. It is by far the most destructive of Kisei's puppets, being able to rend buildings apart with its huge girth and threshing blades.
  • Coiling Body: If Mukade Kotsuqui manages to enwrap an opponent, its crushing strength and bladed exterior tears him apart as it grinds its blades through the flesh of the enemy. The undulating body cleave through flesh like a saw-toothed blade.
  • Lacerating Blades: The bladed extrusions on the body of Mukade Kutsuzui are razor-sharp. Each one poses a risk to an attacker; an attacking limb risks laceration as Mukade Kotsuzui "blocks" the attack with its blades.
  • Burrow: By rapidly rotating and undulating its body, Mukade Kotsuzui can burrow beneath the surface of the ground in order to attack foes as it bursts out from underneath their feet. Burrowing beneath the surface also provides this puppet with a defense against attacks.
  • Rain of Blades: Mukade Kotsuzui can launch dozens of deadly bladed projectiles from his maw, raining destruction down upon any in its range. These blades are likewise coated in Mukade's acidic venoms.
  • Chakra Thread Weave: Unlike most puppets, Mukade Kotsuqui is entirely hollow, except for a tightly-woven bundle of chakra threads. This weave reinforces Kisei's control over the puppet, enabling him to control each of the pieces independently. The bundle also improves the centipede's resistance to attacks that can sever the threads; the "signal" controlling the puppet can jump from one severed strand to another. Even if the body of Mukade Kotsuzui is shattered into multiple pieces, it is still capable of action.

"Aspect of Death"

Toku no Shinigami (匿 之 好餌, lit. "Death God of Shields"): This twelve-foot tall, lightly armored puppet wields a long straight blade in its right hand. The faceplate of the puppet is reminiscent of the skull of a bird. Arrayed upon its back are eight wing-like shields, each emblazoned with the symbol of a deceased warrior. This puppet boasts high speed, attack power and defense.
  • Poison Gas: A compartment within the chest of Toku no Shinigami contains a pressurized container filled with large quantities of a fast-acting corrosive gas. This gas is released from Toku no Shinigami through its maw, and even momentary contact with this air-borne toxin can cause tissue death. This is an invaluable weapon against dojutsu since it can result in the permanent loss of sight within an affected organ as the acidic toxin necrotizes the soft tissue.
  • Great Offense, Speed and Defense: While the puppet body of the Toku no Shinigami appears dexterous and fragile, the shields upon its back enable it to protect itself from multiple attacks simultaneously. Each shield is installed with a variation of the Mechanical Light Shield Block device, enabling it to generate force shields to block ninjutsu or powerful attacks. Additionally, the "wings" of this puppet can expel explosive fuels, which can double as both a form of thrust for high-speed movement, and as a secondary attack.
  • Recessed Chakra Threads: The chakra threads within Toku no Shinigami are recessed- cutting the threads within is not possible, although severing the control thread that connects it to Kisei is.

"Cunning of the Spider"

Kurogokegumo (黒後家蜘蛛, lit. "Black Widow Spider"): A puppet-spider the size of an elephant, Kurogokegumo is a fearsome metal spider with deadly venom and webbing. Its large size makes its speed deceptive- its eight blade-tipped legs allow it to transverse the battlefield rapidly in any direction.
  • Caustic Bite: The bite of Kurogokegumo and its subordinate spider-puppets delivers a fast-acting acidic venom. This venom induces the liquidation of flesh and organs internally as it is spread throughout a body. As the dosage increases from multiple bites, so does the strength of the venom's effects.
  • Blade Legs: Each of the interior edges of the eight limbs of Kurogokegumoare extremely sharp, allowing it to attack many times in rapid succession by stabbing and slashing its legs at an enemy.
  • Steel Body: Kurogokegumo's body is made from a blackened, fire-resistant carbonized steel. It is highly durable and resistant to attacks.
  • Webbing: Kurogokegumo's abdomen can generate vast quantities of sticky, acidic webbing. These spiderwebs are highly resilient to physical assault and can bear extraordinary weight. Contact with organic material causes the webbing to begin to melt or burn through the material like an acid. While these webs are susceptible to destruction through fire, this creates noxious, nauseating fumes which sicken those that inhale it.
  • Internal Compartment: There is a man-sized cavity within Kurogokegumo's main body. This interior compartment provides Kisei with full cover, and enables him to control the body of Kurogokegumo directly.
  • Miniature Spider-puppets: Numerous smaller puppet spiders can be released from Kurogokegumo. So long as these coin-sized spider-puppets are connected to Kisei via a chakra thread, he can see their surroundings by concentrating.
Kugutsu Kouji (傀儡 好餌, lit. "Puppet Decoy"): These primitive mannequins serve many purposes: to distract, confuse, inconvenience and trick Kisei's opponents. Their simple construction and light frames make them easy to destroy, but also easy to replace. Kisei often rigs these with explosive tags for their uses in trap-laying and kawarimi. Kisei sometimes fabricates more elaborate versions of these puppets for espionage.
  • Human Puppet: Unlike the technique employed by Sasori, Kisei does not use human corpses for this technique. After gaining control of a sleeping character's mind through his genjutsu, he can use chakra threads to animate their unconscious bodies like puppets. By supplying their sleeping minds with dreams, he can even trick them into performing their techniques and releases against their allies.
  • Nano-Sized Puppet: This is an experimental form of puppet designed by Kisei Kumo, which employs the use of nano-sized puppets for the creation of new puppet designs.
Morpheus: Morpheus is the name Kisei has granted to the swarm of nano-sized puppets he can control. Even he has not fully tapped the unimaginable potential of this revolutionary puppet design.
  • Kenjutsu (剣術; Literally meaning "Sword Technique"): Kisei's journeys have exposed him to many fighting styles and martial arts, and he's picked up some of the parts that work for him, and abandoned the parts that do not. As such, his fighting style is fairly unpredictable, and emphasizes attacking an enemies' vulnerabilities by exploiting their assumptions and the limitations of their styles. Kisei's segmented blade, Hebi, epitomizes this concept. The bundle of chakra threads within the blade allows it to flex in an unpredictable manner, and it is capable of flowing around an opponent's block or dodge with ease to inflict painful gashes. As a flexible sword, it is able to enwrap an opponent's legs, arms, or weapons in order to immobilize them or set them up for an attack. To his own merit, Kisei is an exceptional fighter that relies on a mixture of cunning and animal reflexes to take down his opponents.
  • Shurikenjutsu (手裏剣術; Literally meaning "sword hidden in the hand techniques"): Kisei has amazing hand-eye coordination, being able to accurately place kunai and shuriken on target from well over a hundred feet away, and his prosthetic arm allows him to throw with great power and precision. Kisei often employs kunai and shuriken in his tactics, by concealing chakra threads upon them, or by other means. He's defeated many enemies thanks to their casual underestimation of the value of the shuriken.


Kisei is no fuinjutsu expert; he doesn't know a very large number of fuinjutsu seals, but by necessity has delved into the art for its practical benefits towards puppetry and trap-laying. As such, he has a well-established foundation of understanding in their creation and functions, and should be

  • Generic Sealing Technique: This most basic of Fuinjutsu allows Kisei to store his puppets and other supplies in scroll-form. He often employs this technique in combination with chakra threads in order to rig traps and activate them from range.
Jutsu Sealing Technique: Kisei has discovered a type of scroll whereby the yin-yang and elemental recombinations (handseals) of a jutsu are written as fuinjutsu script and stored within a scroll. When a quantity of chakra is stored within a seal upon the scroll, this enables the user to simply release the necessary chakras from within the scroll by breaking the seal. The effect of the jutsu then occurs as normal, with the holder of the scroll determining who the jutsu targets. These scrolls can also include a pre-programmed sequence of targetting; this makes them invaluable for trap-laying. Being able to store ready-made jutsu within scrolls has allowed Kisei to circumvent the limitations of his chakra recovery during extended battles and to gain footholds over enemies by attacking them in ways and means they are not expecting. Kisei can use his chakra vampirism to draw on the chakra stored within to recover his chakra reserve, and in the case of a drained scroll, may supply his own chakra to power it.
Kisei lacks the expertise to manufacture these scrolls on his own. It's a rare form of fuinjutsu that originates in an isolated pocket of Mizu no Kuni, near the ruins of Uzushio. The elder masters of fuinjutsu that dwell on those islands have only agreed to supply Kisei with these scrolls on the condition that he does not reveal their location to the outer world, and that Tsukinoiri supplies the islands with food and medical supplies.
  • Summoning Technique: Kisei has no contract with any particular form of summoned animal, but has thoroughly studied this jutsu and its applications for long-distance travel. He has constructed a vast network of chakra threads connecting origin and destination summoning seals, and in this way enables members of Tsukinoiri to pass instantaneously from one point to another all across the world. Because of the time required for the construction and implementation of this network, it is not normally a viable form of high-speed movement in combat. Kisei has developed a means of fabricating talismans that can operate as origin and destination seals, and uses them in conjunction with his chakra webbing to teleport himself around a battlefield.


  • Dream-Based Genjutsu: Kisei's first forays into genjutsu training occurred while under the oversight of the Mirage Corps. Initially, their training concentrated around teaching Kisei to lucid dream. In his waking dreams, Kisei was then trained to shape and form the dream into illusions of his own creation. In this way, the principles of Genjutsu could be easily taught and understood by a child.
Dream-Invasion Technique: After establishing a connection (chakra thread) between himself and the head of a sleeping or unconscious target, Kisei can expand his consciousness into the dreamer's mind. Because he is still awake, he has a great influence over the direction of the dreaming and its content. By combining this technique with his other genjutsu, he has near-omnipotent power over his victim in his sleep. Kisei often combines this with his chakra vampirism; by continuously draining chakra from his victim's crown, he can prevent them from naturally awakening or using the genjutsu dissipation technique to free themselves.
  • Sly Mind Technique: The ability to interfere with an opponent's sense of direction is useful for laying traps and ambushes. Kisei often combines this with Demonic Illusion:False Surroundings Technique to force his enemies to walk in circles while he peppers them with traps and attacks.
  • Genjutsu Binding: This technique is used by Kisei to disable guardsmen before they can raise an alarm. After disabling their movement, he quietly knocks them out and conceals their bodies.
  • Interrogation Genjutsu: When combined with his Dream Genjutsu, this allows him to use the natural vulnerability of a sleeping foe to his advantage; their unconscious minds offer little resistance to his interrogation.
  • Memory Erasing Technique: Kisei uses this technique to remove his presence from a sleeping target's memories of his dream. This technique is particularly potent on sleeping targets, since most waking people suffer amnesia and entirely forget the substance and details of their dreams.
  • Hypnotic Suggestion: Kisei can hypnotically implant suggestions in a sleeper's unconscious mind. This allows him to influence the victim's actions in their conscious state without their knowledge.
  • Mental Barricades: Kisei uses this technique in conjunction with hypnotic suggestion in order to bury a set of programmed commands within a target. These "sleeper" agents then go about their lives until the trigger conditions specified by the suggestion occur, after which they mindlessly execute the command before they realize what is happening.
  • Time Reversal Technique: This technique allows Kisei to force a victim to recover memories that they have forgotten. This is particularly useful for interrogations, since it allows for the recovery of information that would normally be inaccessible otherwise.
Demonic Illusion: Double False Surroundings Technique: A second layer of illusory surroundings reinforces the realism of Kisei's deceptions.
  • Temple of Nirvana Technique: The hypnotic effects of this technique allow Kisei to put large crowds of people asleep. This is useful infiltrating a guarded location, capturing a target, and escaping pursuit.


  • Bunshin no Jutsu (分身の術, lit. "Clone Technique"): Kisei typically employs a variant of this technique on top of pre-existing human-like puppet decoys in order to deceive opponents. The puppet bodies impart physicality and threat to opponents, while the exterior Buunshin shell fools visual senses.
  • Chakura no Ito (チャクラの糸, lit. "Chakra Threads"): This is Kisei's favorite technique. Its utility is limitless in the hands of a creative individual. Kisei typically employs these threads to automate his puppets, to place and trigger traps remotely, and to absorb chakra from multiple sources at a range. He also uses these threads as a form of transportation, by swinging and flinging himself from one location to another like some kind of arachnid-themed super hero. Kisei is capable of firing a chakra thread from each fingertip in order to restrict his opponent's movement and disable their use of jutsu. An entrapped enemy finds it exceedingly difficult to perform jutsu as his chakra is sapped out of him just as fast as he can release it. By deliberately using the bare minimum amount of chakra necessary, Kisei can make his chakra threads practically invisible to the naked eye.
Chakura Sen no Ito (チャクせんラの糸, lit. "Chakra Wire Threads") is an advanced version of the original Chakra Threads ninjutsu. Kisei's experiments into the shape manipulation of chakra threads has born fruit; he has developed a chakra thread that is capable of cutting. Thanks to the fact that the integrity of chakra threads can be enhanced by chakra flow, this allows the cutting power of Chakra Wire Threads to greatly exceed that of conventional Wire Strings. Kisei gained inspiration for this technique after observing a pair of samurai demonstrate the Samurai Sabre Technique.
By combining this technique with Chakra Webbing Kisei is able to create large fields of clinging, cutting threads. This is useful for creating traps and impairing the movement of his enemies.
Chakra Webbing: A fibrous, flexible form of chakra thread developed by Kisei Kumo, chakra webbing is capable of sticking to nearly any surface. Its multiple points of contact allow him to draw chakra from a source more rapidly.
Chakra Threads Dissipation: By building up chakra within tenketsu across his body, Kisei is able to fire chakra threads or webbing from any of them. This technique is useful for immobilizing foes, drawing on chakra from the environment, and for obscuring vision.
Chakra Threads Sensing: Similar to the nairs of a spider, Kisei is able to detect subtle changes in air pressure or ambient chakra due by sensing vibrations in his chakra threads. This allows him to detect unseen foes, feel incoming attacks, and react instinctively to dangers he could not otherwise detect.
Chakra Weave: Chakra weave is a tightly compacted bundle of chakra thread fibers. The durability and strength of the weave can be enhanced by passing chakra through the fibers. Kisei uses this as a defensive technique, or to restrain opponents.
  • Chakra Suppression Technique: Kisei takes some risk when using this technique for extended periods. His body becomes gradually weaker as he slowly starves.
  • Henge no Jutsu (変化の術, lit. "Transformation Technique"): Kisei has mastered this technique, and has discovered he can confer the trasnformative power of Henge to objects he's touching. This allows him to conceal strategies for defeating his opponents, by making objects appear as something they are not.
  • Kawarimi no Jutsu (変わり身の術, lit. "Body Replacement Technique"): Kisei can use this technique easily enough, but repeated applications drain his chakra reserves.
  • Kikō Junbū (機光盾封, lit. "Mechanical Light Shield Block"): This technique is an defensive emergency measure; its steep chakra cost compels Kisei to use it sparingly. For Kisei to power Kiko Junbo for any extended periods requires a network of chakra threads connected Kisei to other sources of chakra (such as trees or other flora).
  • Ki Nobori no Shugyō (木登り修業, lit. "Tree Climbing Practice"): This was the first technique that Kisei mastered, and it was through this technique that he discovered the specifics of his unique condition. He's become skilled enough with this technique to maintain his grip with any part of his body, rather than only his feet.
  • Suimen Hokō no Gyō (水面歩行の業, lit. "Water Surface Water Walking Practice"): Kisei's skill with this technique is sub-standard. Something about his chakra absorption makes it next to impossible for him to remain stationary on the water without falling in. He can only employ this technique when running or moving across the surface of water.


Kisei didn't learn his fighting style in a martial arts school... He's a street-fighter and a mixed martial artist that relies on natural power, durability and instinct to overcome a foe. Though he is mainly self-taught, Kisei does favor one particular martial art above all others. While visiting one of the many labor camps in Kirigakure, Kisei encountered a martial art that would have been rightly called "break-dance fighting". Capoeira, as it was known by the locals, was a martial art that was disguised as a form of dance. The flexible, flowing and cyclical motions of the art was filled with near-kicks and punches. Every successful display of the art expressed a deep level of control, trust and restraint by the participants. The graceful movements disguised a great hidden power; the full-body kicks of these martial artists easily exceeded three thousand pounds of power. Kisei fell in love with the art immediately, and set about learning it as quickly as he could.

The Best Capoeira Video Ever

The Best Capoeira Video Ever

It took him two years to master the art, even with his natural talents as a ninja. It took him yet another year before he was fully able to incorporate the use of his weapons and sleight of hand into the dance of his fighting style. The ceaseless flowing motion of Capoeira has been seemlessly fused with his rough-and-tumble style. If Kisei adequately harnesses the momentum of his rotations, his strongest kicks are capable of delivering thirty thousand pounds of force. To compensate for this extreme power, Kisei has had to construct special reinforced leg plates to prevent the bones in his legs from being pulverized and shattered like glass. Kisei has flawlessly merged the fierce kicks and motion of Capoeira with the subtlety and deception of the shinobi. He has nicknames his variation of the art as "Mongoose and Serpent". For his enemies, they should not fear the attacks they see; they should be wary of the attacks they cannot see.


Kisei invests heavily in various gadgets and tricks to survive. As such, he takes special care to ensure his inventory is fully stocked to handle any contingency.

  • Kisei's Prosthetic Eye: Kisei replaced his left eye with this prosthetic creation after his original eye was badly maimed in a battle against Shichirou Chiyo. This artificial replacement sports some advantages his original did not. As an artificial eye, it grants Kisei a higher resistance to vision-based genjutsu, since most genjutsu do not account for the differentiation of vision between his original eye and the prosthetic. It also enables Kisei to see in the infrared spectrum. With it, he can see a dark night as though it were a sunny day, and he can track heat signatures.
  • Kisei's Prosthetic Arm: Kisei's right arm is made of reinforced galvanized steel and composite synthetic compounds (rubbers). It possesses superior strength, durability, and flexibility than his natural arm did, but lacks much of its sensitivity. As the hand of this robotic arm is likewise unliving, it cannot be used to create chakra threads or to manipulate puppets. A set of porous holes and a hollow cavity in the forearm of this construction allows Kisei to propagate and project damaging sound waves.
  • Kisei's Body Armor: Kisei wears a metal plate across his chest and torso, which serves to protect his internal organs from harm. He also wears reinforced legplates that are able to withstand and absorb the impacts of his fighting style.
  • Kisei's Spider Pack: A set of four articulated metallic spider legs can unfold from a metal pouch on Kisei's back. These five-foot long appendages end in sharp metal tips. They are multi-purpose tools, as they can be used in defense by blocking attacks, offense by attacking in rapid succession, and as a form of movement. Kisei can control these legs by manipulating muscles in his lower back.
  • Hebi: Hebi is Kisei's segmented sword, a full eight feet in length and covered in shark-like articulated blades. A cluster of chakra threads are woven within it, and this allows Kisei to move the blade in an unpredictable fashion. It flows and darts around the defenses of his opponents in a distracting and unpredictable fashion, striking with the tenacity and guile of a serpent.
  • Kisei's Boombox: This electronic device lays out sick beats as Kisei lays out his sweet moves. He usually sets it up to play at the start of a battle or engagement. He's secretly rigged it with explosives that will detonate if someone tries to turn it off.
  • Jutsu Scrolls: Jutsu scrolls are employed by Kisei to supplement his limited range of ninjutsu due his lack of an affinity or elemental release. He usually placed them in conjunction with traps, or as contingencies to allow his escape. This is a comprehensive list of each jutsu scroll Kisei possesses. Upon use, a jutsu scroll is destroyed as the chakra within irreparably damages the fuinjutsu script.
