Kusuna (クスナ) was a shinobi who hailed from the Land of Demons. Kusuna is Yomi's second in command of their team for their quest to destroy Shion and release the demon Mōryō. Before the mission began, Kusuna was infused with Yomi's dark medical ninjutsu so he could act as a catalyst for his team. After plowing through the temple's defenses, Kusuna and his team confront Shion, preparing to kill her but are stopped by Naruto. His sudden arrival and mass scale of Shadow Clones drive them back, until Kusuna orders Gitai, Setsuna, and Shizuku to use their multi-element combination to get rid of Naruto. After Neji, Sakura, and Lee show up to save Naruto, Kusuna has his team work up a diversion while he went after the running Shion.
