"Some of that
plating might start to flake off a little when my Storm Element hits you"
Basic Information Name: Darui Nickname: The Black Flash of Kumo Gender: Male Age: N/A Clan: N/A
Looks: Darui is fairly tall in stature and has a dark skin tone, slightly bulbous nose, a lazy look in his eyes and white, shaggy hair which covers the left side of his face. He wears a high collared sleeveless uniform, loose fitting pants, and one-strap-over-one-shoulder Flak Jacket of a Kumogakure Jōnin. Darui also has stylized characters for Water (水) and Lightning (雷) tattooed on his right and left shoulders respectively, denoting his chakra's elemental nature affinities; Water Release and Lightning Release. The tattoo on his left arm also signifies that he has inherited the Third Raikage's technique. As a sword-user, Darui wields a broad, cleaver-like blade, which he carries on his back. He doesn't seem to carry it around with him in his village however.
Personality: Darui is portrayed as being easy-going and mellow; when compared to the Fourth Raikage's over-the-top exit through a window, he tells C that he'll just use the door. Whilst having a laid-back demeanour, Darui isn't lazy, leaping to the Raikage's defence when the bodyguards of the other Kage overreact to the Raikage's actions. He also has a habit of referring to things or events as being "dull" (だるい, darui) a play on his name. Darui is also very apologetic, even apologizing for other people's actions, a trait he'd never noticed himself; this attribute led him to say "sorry" (すみません, sumimasen) just as much as "dull". He is also very loyal to the Raikage who considers Darui his "second right hand".

Background Info. History: History: Darui and C were chosen to escort the Fourth Raikage to the Five Kage Summit in the Land of Iron. When the Raikage jumped through a window, he tells C that he'd rather use the door. During the Kage meeting, he quickly jumped to protect the Raikage after he smashed the table, because the bodyguards of the other Kage entered into defensive position. After the other bodyguards returned to their respective place, Darui and C did the same. hen White Zetsu appears during the Five Kage Summit, Darui, along with C, guards the Raikage and follow him to the meeting with Sasuke Uchiha. Suigetsu charged at C only to be stopped by Darui and they started battling. Darui and Suigetsu continue their sword fight while the Raikage deals with Jūgo and Sasuke. Darui then incapacitates Suigetsu by lodging his blade into Suigetsu's body and imbuing it with lightning chakra. He then goes to assist C who had been knocked unconscious by Sasuke's genjutsu. He and C watched as the Raikage seemingly sacrificed his left arm and prepares to deal a final blow to Sasuke.
Sasuke counters, and both are saved from further injury by the Fifth Kazekage. As the Raikage is being healed by C, Darui decides to help Gaara, Temari and Kankurō in defeating Sasuke. As they all attack together, Sasuke once again counters with a new form of Susanoo. After Sasuke uses Susanoo to collapse the ceiling onto his enemies, Darui is protected by a sand shield conjured by Gaara. Afterward, he follows the Raikage to chase down Sasuke. Darui, along with C and the Fourth Raikage are later seen on route back to the Land of Lightning to make arrangements for the Shinobi Alliance.
Later, a timely-thrown lightning-empowered Shuriken from Darui saves a weakened Killer Bee from Kisame Hoshigaki's attempt to slice off Killer Bee's legs. The Raikage's entourage were drawn to the area by the sight of Kisame's massive deluge from a mile away, as well as C sensing all of the heightened activity from the Eight-Tailed Giant Ox's chakra. Darui comments upon how foolish and careless it was of Kisame to have absorbed the chakra of both Killer Bee and the Eight-Tail's and then use it all so recklessly out in the open.
After the shinobi army is split up into several divisions, he was made the commander of the First Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces. After Gaara's speech, the entire Shinobi army was deployed. Darui and his division eventually split up from the main force on the Kazekage's orders. They head to the west coast of the Land of Lightning, to defend against an assault from the sea.
While the battle raged, he confronts Kinkaku and Ginkaku. They recognize him as the one who inherited the Third Raikage's lightning techniques. Darui apologizes to them as they had been shamed by being revived but tells them that he will have to shame them more, boasting that their gold and silver plating might start to flake off when they are hit by Darui's Storm Release, even though the whole situation is tiresome
As Kinkaku attacks, Darui severs his left arm and uses his Storm Release: Laser Circus technique to attack Kinkaku and Ginkaku and free Samui simultaneously. Kinkaku kicks his arm with the Kōkinjō wrapped around it into Darui side, drawing out his word soul while Ginkaku absorbs Samui into the gourd which shocked Darui, as she had not even uttered a word. After regenerating his arm, Kinkaku curses Darui's word soul with Shichiseiken. Darui then thinks about the word that would cause him to be sealed away if said and realises it is dull (だるい, darui). Darui is then tricked into saying the word, but while he is getting sucked into the gourd he says sorry (すみません, sumimasen) three times, and therefore changing his most used word from dull to sorry and escapes. Then he forced Ginkaku to touch the Kōkinjō. While doing this he stole the Shichiseiken and the Benihisago. As a distraction he throws his sword at Kinkaku who blocks the attack, Darui then uses his Storm Release: Laser Circus once again to attack Kinkaku. He then uses the opportunity to curse Ginkaku's word soul with the Shichiseiken and then record it with the Benihisago. Ginkaku then says his most used word, Kinkaku (キンカク), and gets sealed inside the gourd. Darui then promises to find a way to free Samui and Atsui. After taking care of Ginkaku, he feels the massive chakra drain from the Treasured Tools, however, he quickly recovers
This Cleaver Sword is a giant cleaver-like blade that is wielded by Darui.
It is broad and has three hinges that allows him to fold the blade itself when not in use and unfold it in battle. Darui can also imbue it with lightning chakra. This proved most useful in his battle against Suigetsu who is particularly weak to this chakra nature. The blade was also shown to be able to maintain the charge even if he is no longer holding the blade.
