Name: Kidōmaru Nickname: Kidōmaru of the East Gate Gender: Male Age: 14 Clan: N/A
Looks: Kidōmaru is a dark-skinned shinobi with black hair and eyes, and also has six arms. He wears a black, sleeveless top and shorts under a tunic that bore the symbol of the Sound Four and a rope belt. He also wears the forehead protector of his village along with arm warmers, shinobi sandals and bandages around his legs. He carries a bow on his back, pre-constructed from sticky gold and web threads.
Personality: Kidōmaru generally sees battle as a game, and often plays around with the opponent because he prefers to have fun seeing the opponent struggle. His speech also reflects this when battling Neji Hyūga, he referred to Neji as a "minor character" and analysed his situation using typical gaming language ("level" and "difficulty"). Like the other members of the Sound Four, he is extremely arrogant with his opponents. He is also the only member of the Sound Four not to have a perception of morality.

Kidōmaru made his first appearance with the rest of the Sound Four, erecting a barrier to keep others from interfering in Orochimaru's fight with the Third Hokage. He and the rest of the Sound Four later escorted Orochimaru when he fled. Kidōmaru used his Spider Bind technique to prevent Konoha ANBU from following them.
The Sound Four escorted Sasuke Uchiha when he decided to join sides with Orochimaru. After the Sasuke Retrieval Team found the Sound Four after having left Chōji behind to deal with Jirōbō, Kidōmaru allowed his comrades to go ahead of him while he caught and toyed with their pursuers. Because Naruto could use shadow clones, Kidomaru decided to kill him first. Kidōmaru slowly picked the clones off to try and find the real one. When all turned out to be shadow clones, the real Naruto attacked Kidōmaru from behind. He dodged and caught Naruto and tried to kill him but is stopped by Neji, who freed him having already freed everyone else from Kidōmaru's webbing using his Gentle Fist. Neji engaged Kidōmaru in battle after the others had gone ahead. Kidōmaru was at first confident that he could kill Neji very quickly but he was eventually defeated by him.
Kidōmaru has a unique body structure. He possesses two extra pairs of arms, which essentially give him a total of eight appendages, relating to his spider theme. These allow him to add power or variety into his attacks, hold multiple tools, simultaneously perform multiple tasks, and form several hand seals at once. He can also use the multiple arms to pull his bowstring to incredible tension, drastically increasing the arrows' power.
He also possesses a third eye on his forehead, usually concealed by his forehead protector. In a serious battle, he would reveal the eye. This eye increases his perception and accuracy by a significant amount, allowing him to pinpoint the enemy's vital points with his arrow.
Spider Webs and Sticky Gold
Kidōmaru has the ability to make spider webs by infusing his spit or sweat with chakra. These threads are extremely sticky, yet durable and elastic. This is because his chakra is constantly flowing through the webs, and they cannot be cut with normal tools such as kunai. He could use them to bind, trap, or even be used for just sensing enemies. However, the Gentle Fist can cut them, as the fighting style is based on using the user's chakra to attack precise points.
He can also create a thicker golden liquid that hardened into a chakra-blocking metal on contact with air. By chewing the spider web liquid inside his mouth, he can make it more solid and gum-like, allowing him to form makeshift weapons. However, this hardened material can be instead released through the sweat pores and fabricated into a body-covering armour that could completely defend him from physical attacks, metal throwing weapons, and even chakra-based attacks, such as the Gentle Fist. Finally, he can form his especially deadly bow and arrows which could shatter trees when fired.
