    [Character] Kakuzu



    Kakuzu (角都, Kakuzu) was an S-rank missing-nin from Takigakure and a member of Akatsuki who was partnered with Hidan. Within the organisation itself, Kakuzu acted as the organisation's Treasurer. When he was still a loyal, elite ninja of Takigakure, Kakuzu took on a mission to assassinate Hashirama Senju. This mission, however, ended in failure. What awaited in his return to his village was the stigma and harsh punishment associated with the failure of his objective. In response to this treatment, a wrong levied against a shinobi who had put life and limb on the line for his village, Kakuzu came to hold a violent hatred for his village as he escaped from imprisonment. In his flight from the village, Kakuzu killed the village elders, took their hearts, and fled with knowledge of the village's most prized forbidden techniques. He made a living off bounty hunting on the black market, and tearing out the still-beating hearts of powerful shinobi to extend his own lifespan. Some time after his defection, he joined Akatsuki, and was given a number of partners, most of whom he killed, due to his short temper. This is why he was eventually partnered with Hidan, whom he could not kill because of his immortality. Kakuzu was a greedy, miserly individual, arranging goals in terms of the highest profit he could gain from them, and was often unwilling to involve himself in something if there was nothing to gain from it.


    Kakuzu was a very powerful ninja, strong enough to become a member of Akatsuki and almost every opponent he was shown fighting, he defeated with little effort. His raw strength was great enough to catch one of Choji's enlarged punches with a single hand and punch down an iron gate, as well as lifting and choking two people simultaneously. This was further supplemented by his taijutsu skills, shown when, during his fight with Kakashi (who was quite skilled in taijutsu himself) he mixed his hardening and extending abilities with his taijutsu.

    Kakuzu was shown to be a keen analyst as well, which was somewhat attributable to his age. In the anime, he seemed somewhat more observant, easily noticing that Shikamaru was taking his time to formulate a plan to counter Hidan's technique, after the former caught his partner in his Shadow Imitation Technique. He was able to quickly discern the purpose of Shikamaru's various shadow attacks, and devised ways to counter them almost instantaneously during the battle.

    Earth Grudge Fear:

    All of Kakuzu's abilities revolved around his unique body structure, which was composed of hundreds of thick, grey tendrils woven throughout his flesh called Earth Grudge Fear, holding his body together like the stitches of a rag-doll. This allowed him to separate his body parts at will, to perform long-range physical attacks and sew up almost any injury he suffered. All these abilities made him very difficult to defeat. The threads could also be used to repair the bodies of others, as seen when he reattached Deidara's arms. Because of his unique body structure, Kakuzu is a highly enduring man, able to take a direct strike from Kakashi's Raikiri without it hindering his performance. His threads could even compact together to form a giant octopus-like form around his body, used for long range battle.

    Kakuzu's threads granted him a degree of immortality (though he declined to think of it that way). The threads could pierce the flesh and bodies of others, allowing him to remove their organs and integrate them into his own body, thereby extending his life. He commonly removed hearts in this fashion, keeping a total of five at any time, and requiring that he be killed at least five times in a battle before he truly died. If Kakuzu was killed somehow, then one of his extra hearts could then re-enter his body and bring him back to life at the cost of the heart.

    Elemental Hearts:

    The hearts captured from other ninja granted Kakuzu numerous elemental affinities, along with a vast supply of chakra. By collecting these hearts Kakuzu's own affinity is reinforced and his skill in other elements is increased to the point that he was able to use various different elemental attacks that were noted to be impossible, without having an affinity to that particular element. This is done by connecting his chakra circulatory system to his four extra hearts, granting him the ability to change his chakra nature and affinity to that of the previous owner. The individual hearts could be released from his body and wrapped in a vast blanket of threads, forcing a heart into a limb before being detached or forming a monstrous body with a mask as its face:

    ➔ Earth mask: It is unknown what animal this mask was, as it was destroyed before it could be seen, but the heart had an earth-affinity. It allowed Kakuzu to use Earth Release: Earth Spear.

    ➔ Tiger-like mask: This heart had a fire-affinity, and it took on the shape of a demonic tiger. It could use Fire Release: Intelligent Hard Work. This mask could also unite with the Eagle-mask to launch a fire-wind dual strike, that was near unstoppable.

    ➔ Bull-like mask: This heart had a lightning-affinity, and it took on the shape of some sort of deformed bipedal. It could use Lightning Release: False Darkness.

    ➔ Eagle-like mask: This heart had a wind-affinity, and it took on a strange, four-legged body, with thin wings. It could use Wind Release: Pressure Damage. It could unite with the Tiger-mask to launch a fire-wind dual strike, that was near unstoppable.

    ➔ Water mask: In the anime, using the fifth heart stored in his body, Kakuzu could use water-based jutsu. Kakuzu used Water Encampment Wall when Shikamaru threw an exploding tag at him.

    Character Restrictions:

    • Kakuzu bio's can be made at all times.
    • The hearts are unlocked based on your rank:
      Genin ➔ 1 heart (body)

      S-Jounin ➔ 2 hearts

      Jounin ➔ 3 hearts

      S-Class ➔ 4 hearts

      Sannin ➔ 5 hearts
    • You still need to learn first the element before you can make a mask out of it. Even if you are a sannin, if you only learned one element, you will only have one heart.
    • Your first heart is logically always the one inside your body.
    • You need to state clearly in your bio which elemental heart is in your body and which are on your back.

    Heart Stealing Restrictions & Guidelines:

    • You can only start stealing hearts of other people when you already have obtained the five basic hearts, meaning you need to be of sannin rank.
    • The total of hearts you can have always remains max 5.
    • You can steal max 2 elemental KG hearts. Also not all elemental KG can be stolen to avoid people bypassing the rules, currently only these ones: Ice, Storm, Steel, Magnetism (normal) and Quicklime.
    • If you steal a heart, whether it be a normal one or a KG, that heart can only use the canon jutsu's that bio knew.
    • When a stolen heart gets destroyed, you lose it. Likewise if you drop your Kakuzu bio, you also lose the stolen hearts.
    • If you steal a heart, you have to sacrifice one of your current hearts, meaning you loose access to one of your basic elements (regardless of which KG you stole).
    • You need to steal the hearts from a living body in an official battle in the Battle Arena or Ninja World. After that you go to NB Hospital to confirm the transaction was successful. When you update your bio, you add the links of the version of the bio you took the heart from and the hospital thread.
    • If you steal an elemental KG heart, your bio will count as having a KG. Likewise the rule of not having twice the same KG also still applies.

    (Jiongu: Saishu Shageki) Earth Grudge Fear: Final Shot

    Type: Offensive
    Rank: S-Rank
    Range: Short-Long
    Chakra: 90
    Damage: 80
    This is one of Kakuzu's ultimate techniques. Once he has gained access to a Lightning, Fire and Wind hearts, he can use this technique. Without having released them from his body, Kakuzu puts forth his hands and produces a mash of Dark Threads from them from which the 3 masks manifest and protrude. As they open their mouths, they each produce an A-Rank elemental stream of their own element (Lightning, Fire and Wind) that combines into a massive attack. However, because of the elemental interactions, although its high chakra cost, the final damage is equivalent to an S-Rank technique. The main difference is that its an S-Rank with 3 simultaneous natures, making countering it quite hard.
    Note: Usable twice per battle.

    (Kongukan) The Elder's Folly

    Type: Offensive
    Rank: S-Rank
    Range: Short-Long
    Chakra: 90
    Damage: 80
    After releasing his masks out of his body, Kakuzu's makes use Fire Release: Intelligent Hard Work, Lightning Release: False Darkness and Wind Release: Pressure Damage all at the same time to create a massive elemental barrage that obliterates everything in front of them. The unique aspect of this technique is its scale and the fact that the 3 techniques actually combine into one gigantic tripe element blast. However, due to the elemental interactions, although its the use of 3 A-Rank techniques, the end result is equivalent to an S-Rank technique, although composed of 3 elemental natures. Off course, to use this technique, the user must have gained access to a Fire, Lightning and Wind hearts.
    Note: Usable twice per battle.
