Danzō Shimura (志村ダンゾウ, Shimura Danzō) reputed as The Darkness of the Shinobi (忍の闇, Shinobi no Yami) — due to what was often seen as his militant and archaic views on the role of a shinobi — was an elder of Konohagakure and leader of the disbanded ANBU faction: "Root". He was later appointed as the official Sixth Hokage Candidate (六代目火影候補, Rokudaime Hokage Kōho) after Pain's invasion, but died before he officially entered the office of Hokage.
In his youth, Danzō was good friends with Hiruzen Sarutobi, and despite his best efforts, Danzō always felt inferior to Hiruzen and always wanted to surpass him. During the First Shinobi World War, Danzō, along with his team-mates: Kagami Uchiha and Torifu Akimichi, as well as Hiruzen and his team-mates: Koharu Utatane and Homura Mitokado, formed a squad led by the Second Hokage. At some point, the team was pursued by Kumogakure's Kinkaku Squad, realising that one of them would need to sacrifice themselves as a decoy to ensure the others' safety. Hoping to die for his companions, just as his father and grandfather had, Danzō tried to volunteer but was paralysed with fear at the prospect of dying and with Hiruzen volunteered before he could compose himself. Angry that Hiruzen had once again beaten him, Danzō began to protest before the Second Hokage decides to be the decoy instead while appointing Hiruzen as his successor.
With Hiruzen having beaten him to the title of Hokage, Danzō began planning to someday attain the title himself. To that end, he created the ANBU subsidiary named Root. Although the group was later officially disbanded, it remained secretly active. During the Third Shinobi World War, Danzō agreed to help Hanzō of Amegakure in order to receive help in claiming the title of Hokage, sending some of his forces to deal with Akatsuki but they were all wiped out by Nagato. He would later betray Hanzō at some point in history.
At some point in time he also had Orochimaru, who accompanied him with another Root shinobi to Konoha Orphanage where he strong-arms a former agent, Nonō, to infiltrate Iwagakure and find out confirm the intel on what the village was planning and what it is. Soon after, Danzō notices Kabuto Yakushi spying from the window and decides to recruit the boy as well. However, in time, both Kabuto and Nonō become assets too dangerous to be left alive and Danzō tricks a brainwashed Nonō into killing Kabuto. However, though he sent Orochimaru to oversee no survivors, Danzō was unaware that his subordinate did not execute it and instead took Kabuto under his wing. Orochimaru also played a role in implanting Hashirama Senju's DNA into his right arm, modifying his physical energy prior to the addition of Sharingan on the limb.
After Kurama attacked Konoha, Danzō was one of the elders to suspect that the Uchiha clan was involved in this incident and supported relocating the clan to a secluded area of the village where they could easily be monitored. When word reached Konoha's leadership of a planned coup d’état by the Uchiha clan, Danzō took advantage of Itachi Uchiha's pacifist tendencies and convinced him to provide him and the other elders with information of the clan's actions. When Hiruzen decided to end the coup diplomatically, Danzō secretly met with Itachi and inveigled him into choosing to massacre his clan by presenting him with the option of killing them and sparing his younger brother, Sasuke Uchiha or having them all killed. Itachi had no choice but to agree killing the Uchiha clan. Danzō also implanted the right Mangekyō Sharingan of Shisui Uchiha shortly before his death. Soon after performing the deed, Itachi threatens to expose Konoha's secret to the other countries if Danzō ever harmed Sasuke. He met with Tobi around this time for as yet unknown reasons.
During most of the 3rd Kageship, Danzo continued to work in the shadows of the village, using the Root to bid his will, most of the time without Hiruzen or the other elders knowing. When Hiruzen died, Danzo saw in Tsunade the perfect person to manipulate. Taking advantage of her ignorance regarding most of the villages dark past, Danzo ensured a stronger position and voiced his opinions ever more often. At some point, when Nagato attacked the village leaving Tsunade unconscious, Danzo stepped up as Hokage candidate, even going so far as to represent Konohagakure in the Kages Summit of the Land of Iron. It was as a result of that Summit that Danzo came to confront an enraged Sasuke. While Sasuke won, Danzo showcased his immense skill and abilities and managed to leave him almost blinded due to the excessive use of his MS.
Danzō Shimura is an very powerful character and dangerous enemy. Despite his considerable age, he was shown to be proficient in both all aspects of combat, having both a fair amount of power and great enough speed to catch even Sasuke Uchiha off guard during their battle. However, his true skill lies in his large arsenal of ninjutsu. Danzō was an extremely proficient wind release user; having used several high level wind techniques that were even capable of cutting through the bones of Susanoo. At some point during the Third Shinobi War, Danzō gained the cells of the First Hokage and began stealing the eyes of Uchiha victims and implanting them into his right arm. As a result of both Senju and Uchiha DNA within him, he gained the ability to use Izanagi, and was able to continuously replace any Sharingan that "lost its light." As a result of having Hashirama's cells, he was also capable of using wood release, though using it exhausted him immensely. After stealing Shisui's right eye and putting it into his empty right eye socket, Danzō gained the ability to activate the Mangekyou Sharingan and use Kotoamatsukami, allowing him to manipulate others on an unprecedented scale. Due to his Senju DNA, he was capable of using the powerful genjutsu once a day as opposed to once every ten years. He was also capable of using a very unique summoning: Baku, a large elephant-like chimera.

Note: Can only be used by Danzo biographies.
(Doujutsu: Izanagi) – Eye Technique: Izanagi
Chakra cost: 100
Damage points: N/A (-30 to user and loss of a Sharingan eye)
Description: Izanagi is a Genjutsu that is intended to be cast upon oneself and not the enemy. When activated the user removes the boundaries between reality and illusion within their personal space. In a certain degree this allows the user to control their own state of existence. However, this is only maintained for the briefest of moments. When activated it is capable of turning an injury or even death into an illusion allowing the user to escape harm, but not without a grave cost. The user is capable of seemingless instant movement (similar to S/T techniques) as he disappears and reappears and can negate any harmfull effect cast upon himself in terms of physical damage. The use of this technique results in the loss of a Sharingan eye. Whenever the user receives a fatal injury, he or she automatically fades away as a genjutsu, and then returns back to reality, physically real and unscathed in a place of his choosing. Izanagi can only be used by those with the Genetic imprint of the SO6P, weidling the DNA of the Senju clan and the Uchiha Clans Sharingan. In Danzo’s case, since he had multiple sharingan implanted into his right arm he could activate this technique multiple times, each time losing one of the eyes but had a time limit in activating it again. Obito Uchiha, having a Zetsu clone grafted into his body possessed the ability to use the technique as well albeit at the cost of one of his sharingan eyes. Madara Uchiha, having infused his body with the cells of the First Hokage, could also use this technique.
Note: Can only be used by Danzo Shimura as well as Madara Uchiha and Obito Uchiha bios as long as they have been infused Senju DNA (gained access to wood release).
Note: Danzo can only use the technique 4 times, 3 of which rendered eyes on his arms blind and the last use rendered Shishui's eye, implanted into his right eye socket, blind
Note: Madara and Obito can use the technique a maximum of 2 times, rendering their eyes useless for the rest of the match.
(Doujutsu: Kotoamatsukami) - Eye Technique: Kotoamatsukami
Chakra Cost: 70
Damage: N/A (-30 to the user)
Kotoamatsukami is the ultimate genjutsu granted by Shisui Uchiha's Mangekyō Sharingan. The technique itself allows the user to enter the opponent's mind and manipulate them by giving them false experiences, making it seem as if they were doing things of their own free will. It is regarded as a genjutsu of the highest class, due to the victim being entirely unaware that they are being manipulated. Danzō gained access to this dōjutsu by taking and later implanting Shisui's Sharingan into his own right eye-socket while Shisui was still alive. The technique will imprint an absolute "order" inside the enemies mind, manipulating his thoughts, memories and even his feelings to make him behave or decided something. This type of mind control technique is so perfect that only sensors or Byakugan users will know of it, not for deciphering it, but by noticing their chakra (or that of the one affected by it) flow altered. The control is absolute and can break even the binding done to a revived Edo Tensei summon. However, the user can't control the targets actions to a great detail. He can only imprint a set of simple but absolute "core truths" that the enemy will take as his own "truth" and react upon it.
Note: Can only be used by Danzo Shimura bios or Shishui Uchiha bios with MS
Note: Can only be used once per battle and immediately deactivates the users MS while it renders the user unable to reactivate it for the rest of the match, with a 2 turn coldown to activate the sharingan once again.
Note: The control is only kept as long as the user focuses to keep it, during which he can't perform any techniques. If the target is an already subdued enemy or an Edo Tensei summoned body, then its absolute and can't be broken for the rest of the fight.
Note: Does not require eye contact.
( Futon: Shinkū Ibuki ) - Wind Release: Vacuum Breath
Type: Offensive, Supplementary
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage points: 60
Description: The Baku summon will suck in air causing a powerful vacuum that draws in the opponent and any debree. The summoner can use this Vacuum to increase the potency of their wind techniques by using the vacuum. The downside to this technique is the enemy target can use a Fire Style Technique and increase its power by using the vacuum to attack the Baku directly.
Note: Can only be used by Danzo biographies.
