    サソリ, Sasori

    "Fine art is something wonderful that's left long into the future...eternal beauty."

    Listen and Read ♫

    Basic Information.
    Name: Sasori (サソリ, Sasori)
    Nickname: Sasori of the Red Sand (赤砂のサソリ, Akasuna no Sasori)
    Gender: Male
    Age: Thirty-five
    Clan: -

    Without Hiruko, Sasori maintained the appearance of a teenage boy with wide brown eyes which he inherited from his mother, and short, red hair which he inherited from his father. As a child, Sasori wore dark green robes with a pale jacket around them. As an adult, he was mostly seen in his Akatsuki robe. Sasori's puppet form consisted of a pair of spinning claws attached to his lower back, a holder for four scrolls on his back, a stinger in the empty and open stomach cavity, a compartment in his right chest, and a 'core of living flesh' in the left which had the kanji for "Scorpion" (蠍, Sasori) painted on it. In his exposed state, Sasori's eyes would also be wide open in a maniacal way, as opposed to his normal calm looking eyes.

    Sasori wore his Akatsuki ring on his left thumb. The ring bears the kanji for jewel or sphere (玉, gyoku). He also wore teal nail polish. Even though Sasori possessed a headband from Sunagakure that was slashed out in the middle, he never physically wore it, but instead kept it on his person.

    Sasori grew up in a sad and lonely environment due to the absence of parental love. When introduced to the art of puppetry by his grandmother, Chiyo, he grew a little happier. He eventually created puppets in the likeness of his parents, but when he realised that the puppets couldn't give him the actual love that he desired, he became cold and aloof. This led to his maintaining little regard for human life. Sasori even went so far as to state that he would feel nothing if Chiyo died, as he claimed that his heart had become like his puppet body: without any emotions. Despite his cruel and nihilistic nature, Sasori was also known to possess a very down-to-earth outlook on life, rarely getting worked up over obstacles that impeded his way. He rarely gave way to any strong emotions, and such instances that happened were often short-lived.

    Sasori was also known for his impatience, as he repeatedly noted that he did not wish to wait or keep others waiting. Despite this, he took his time in battling Kankurō when they first met due to his interest in fighting his old creations, handed down to a puppet master of the next generation.

    Sasori and his second partner in Akatsuki, Deidara, both had conflicting views on art, and they frequently argued about their differing perspectives. Deidara maintained his belief that art was something transient that departs quickly, where as Sasori believed that fine art was everlasting and remained far into the future. This reflected their individual natures; Deidara made clay sculptures which exploded, while Sasori created long-lasting puppets out of humans that never died. Nevertheless, although Deidara outwardly seemed to respect Sasori's beliefs, Sasori never respected Deidara's.

    Background History.
    When Sasori was young, his father and mother were killed by Sakumo Hatake in battle, leaving him in the care of his grandmother, Chiyo. When Chiyo attempted to cheer him up by teaching him puppetry at age five, Sasori's innate aptitude for the art became apparent, and he even began to devise masterful ways of eliminating a puppet master's weaknesses in battle. His skills even allowed him to create two puppets in the image of his parents in an attempt to discard the terrible loneliness he felt. However, as the puppets were unable to give him the real parental love that he desired, Sasori lost interest in them, and they later fell into Chiyo's possession. Sasori created many other ingenious puppets, including Black Ant, Crow, and Salamander, which were later owned by Kankurō. During the Third Shinobi World War, the effectiveness of his puppets in spilling enemies' blood on the sand gave rise to Sasori's moniker Sasori of the Red Sand. However, motivated by his desire to make works that last forever, Sasori began experimenting to create puppets out of people.

    Twenty years before his introduction in the series, Sasori left Sunagakure at age fifteen after he secretly kidnapped the Third Kazekage and made him into one of his human puppets. Sasori also transferred his heart into a puppet body modelled after himself to increase his own offensive capabilities and prolong his life. Some time after leaving the village, Sasori joined the Akatsuki and utilised his skills to create numerous spies like Yūra and Mukade in many nations as sleeper agents. Prior to being partnered with Deidara, Sasori was paired with Orochimaru, who shared his desire of an everlasting existence. However, when Orochimaru left the Akatsuki after his failed attempt to take Itachi Uchiha's body, Sasori bore a grudge towards his former partner and sent Kabuto Yakushi to be his spy in Otogakure. Nevertheless, Sasori was unaware that Kabuto was working for Orochimaru long before he posed as an Akatsuki spy, with him and the rest of the Akatsuki made to think that Kabuto joined Orochimaru's side after being dispelled of Sasori's brainwashing.

    Kazekage Rescue Arc:
    At the start of Part II, Sasori, hidden in his puppet, Hiruko, returned to his former village, Sunagakure, with Deidara to capture the One-Tailed Shukaku's jinchūriki, and the Fifth Kazekage, Gaara. Both the Akatsuki members easily penetrated Suna's defences, as the village was betrayed by one of Sasori's own subordinates, Yūra. After Deidara captured Gaara, the Kazekage's elder brother, Kankurō, attempted to stop the Akatsuki duo from fleeing. But Sasori confronted him so that Deidara could go on ahead unopposed and made quick work of Kankurō, poisoning and nearly killing him, and easily destroying his puppets, as he had pre-existing knowledge of their secrets. After the Akatsuki members extracted and sealed the One-Tailed Shukaku from Gaara at the Akatsuki hideout, Sasori and Deidara were left in charge by their leader of defeating the pursuing Team 7 and Sasori's grandmother, Chiyo. As Deidara led Naruto Uzumaki and Kakashi Hatake away using Gaara's dead body as bait, Sasori was left to face Sakura Haruno and his grandmother Chiyo.

    Soon after the battle began, with Chiyo controlling her as a puppet, Sakura was able to destroy Sasori's puppet, Hiruko. As Sasori emerged from Hiruko's remains and revealed his true self, Chiyo and Sakura were shocked to see his youthful face, considering that he had left Sunagakure over twenty years ago. Not wasting any time, however, Sasori brought out his Third Kazekage puppet, who he revealed to be his favourite, as the Third was the hardest to kill and add to his collection. Since the Third Kazekage was a human puppet, Sasori was able use its various Iron Sand abilities to attack and overwhelm Chiyo and Sakura. To try and combat the Kazekage, Chiyo brought out the first puppets Sasori ever created Mother and Father. Although Chiyo had since equipped them with extra weapons and defences, the Kazekage's puppet's Iron Sand quickly disabled the two puppets, and Chiyo's arm as well. Acting on her own, Sakura demolished the Kazekage puppet after picking up on its movements and using herself as bait to lower Sasori's guard.

    With the loss of the Kazekage puppet, Sasori revealed the reason behind his eternal youth: his own human puppet body, which itself was fitted with numerous weapons and traps laced with poison. Sakura eventually managed to break apart his puppet body, but missed his core, allowing him to reassemble himself. Chiyo then brought out her own ten puppets in an attempt to level the playing field. Sasori used his Red Secret Technique: Performance of a Hundred Puppets, allowing him to control ten times as many puppets as Chiyo. Since Chiyo's puppets were designed to work together, a trait lacking with all of Sasori's puppets, her puppets fared far better than his, although they were eventually overwhelmed by Sasori's sheer numbers. During the battle, Chiyo attempted to seal Sasori's chakra with a special orb from one of her puppets, but missed his core — the only living part of his body and the source of his chakra — and only trapped his puppet body. As Chiyo and Sakura were distracted by his summoned puppets, Sasori was revealed to have transferred the cylindrical container housing his core, into another one of his own puppets, possessing his face's likeness, before the seal nailed his original body to a wall.

    Using the seal as a distraction, Sasori, in his new puppet body, attempted a sneak attack on Chiyo. However, Sakura took the sword's attack from Sasori for Chiyo. Sasori's katana pierced Sakura's abdomen, and since the blade itself was coated in poison, Sasori stated that she would either succumb to the poison or bleed to death. As Sasori prepared to attack again, it gave Chiyo a chance to use Mother and Father to stab him through his core in the form of an embrace. As Chiyo ran to Sakura's almost lifeless body, she began to try and heal her, to which Sasori, even in his dying state, laughed in amusement at her seemingly senile attempt to save Sakura, stating that it was far too late for any form of medical ninjutsu. When Chiyo revealed the true nature of her technique, Sasori believed it impossible until Sakura awoke.



    Master Puppeteer
    Sasori was considered to be a master of puppetry, being taught by his grandmother Chiyo. Aside from his great skill in controlling multiple puppets at once, he was brilliant with creating his own. He has created Karasu, Kuroari and Sanshōuo, the three main puppets shown to being used by Kankurō His immense skill and knowledge of puppetry allowed him the edge against other shinobi, especially against other puppeteers if they're using old puppets which he has created. This is evident in the fight with Kankurō where he destroyed Sanshōuo just by locating it's weak spot. His refined puppetry technique was considered to be so powerful he could control living people, even against their own will if they were weak enough. Most of his techniques were seen as artistic performances called "Red Secret Techniques".

    Puppet Variety
    Sasori has a wide variety of puppets as his disposal. The first one we had seen was Hiruko, a personal puppet of Sasori said to be the ultimate defense. This is the puppet Sasori is usually seen concealed in when wandering around, and is covered in his cloak. Hiruko is armed with a strenuous metal tail containing his poison on the tip. The tail could also be spun around him acting as a defense. His left arm has been rigged to be capable of shooting poison senbon at a target, as was it's mouth.

    Rank: A
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra Cost: 30
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: Created by Sasori, Hiruko is the ultimate defensive puppet, hence why Sasori often stays inside of it, being hollow on the inside. From the inside of the puppet, Hiruko can still be freely controlled. Hiruko looks a lot like a normal human when wearing the Akatsuki outfit, his eyes even seeming realistic. Hiruko’s most notable feature is his extremely long iron tail, that Sasori, from inside the puppet, can extend, questionably allowing it to reach an opponent from almost all ranges. The tail extends from the mouth of what seems to be a mask on Hiruko’s back. Hiruko rarely moves in battle, however, during the brief fight with Kankurou, it has been shown that he has decent speed, though it is short-lived, having had sidestepped his attack easily. Hiruko cannot be broken by normal weapons. When he had been impaled by approximately eight of Crow’s knives, they failed to make even a scratch on him. When outside of the Akatsuki uniform, when he seems to take a more spider-like appearance, Hiruko’s speed is greatly increased, allowing him to scurry across the battlefield. Hiruko can only be destroyed by an attack of at least A rank, or by someone with strength such as Sakura’s, Tsunade’s, or Kakuzu’s. Hiruko’s left arm is shaped like a torpedo, and can be shot out towards the opponent, exploding and releasing needles in all directions when it does so.
    Note: Only Usable by a Sasori character.

    His next puppet was the Third Kazekage, said to be the favourite of Sasori. He had kidnapped him and transformed him into a human puppet, with the capability to retain his ability to use Iron Sand techniques. Within the Third Kazekage holds a compartment holding a large supply of Iron Sand, usable for his techniques. The magnetism capabilities held within the puppet gave Sasori an immunity over metallic weapons. Third Kazekage's left arm held several scrolls bearing many more puppet arms, allowing them to crush his target and secrete poison. Should the seals be cut off, the arm also holds a buzzsaw within it.

    Sandaime Kazekage
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra Cost: 40
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: Sandaime Kazekage is Sasori’s favorite human puppet, as well as the most powerful, besides Sasori himself. The Kazekage had been kidnapped by Sasori over ten years ago, killed, and then turned into a puppet. The puppet, however, maintained the ability to manipulate sand and iron sand, just as the Kazekage did, due to it being a human puppet. This puppet, also, has many other abilities, such as the Thousand Hands Manipulation. The puppet also is able to release iron sand from its mouth, allowing it to use iron sand jutsu with that as a source. There is also a magnetic apparatus in its left chest compartment.
    Note: Only usable by a Sasori character.

    His final personal puppet was himself. He had turned himself into a puppet, being the embodiment of "eternal beauty" and the secret to how he was able to maintain his appearance of a teenage boy despite being in his mid-thirties. The right side of his chest holds his 'core' which is the only living segment of Sasori remaining, and the only thing stopping him from becoming a true puppet. His left side contained a compartment full of chakra, able to wisp up 100 chakra threads for his 'Red Secret Technique: Performance of a Hundred Puppets'. His stomach area is replaced with a long cord of steel, coated in his poison. His back contained several metal blades which could be spread out like wings and could slice up almost anything that tried to approach him from behind by rotating them frivalously.

    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra Cost: 40 (if summoning)
    Damage: N/A
    Description: Sasori, after leaving the village, made himself into a puppet, his most powerful one. Sasori, has many compartments on himself that hold scrolls inside of him that allow him to summon other puppets. In its right arm, there is a large retractable scythe. In place of his stomach, there is a compartment with a long, thick cable wrapped around a pole that can be used as a singer, able to be retracted and lengthened at will. On the back of Sasori’s hips is a pair of poles, which are equipped with five large blades each that can spin like a propeller, allowing a great defense from behind, as well as a deadly maneuver for any opponent trying a surprise attack. There are pipes on the palm of each of Sasori’s hand that can spew out powerful fire like a flamethrower or water jets (both equal to A rank). In the right part of his chest, there is a compartment filled with 100 chakra strings. In the left part of Sasori is his heart container, though this is not there, of course, when used by Kankurou. Sasori is immune from being hurt in anywhere but his heart, which would take a very direct attack. When hit anywhere else, he can simply retract the broken area back together, even able to withstand powerful poison. His entire body, besides his heart, is a puppet, and so he cannot feel anything anywhere other than his heart. Within a split second, the heart container in Sasori is able to be transferred from one puppet to another.
    Note: Only usable by a Sasori or Kankurou character.

    Sasori’s Hundred Puppet Army
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra Cost: 40
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: This is a group of 100 of Sasori’s puppets, out of the 298 total. Every one of these puppets are made from humans he defeated, creating them into puppets. All of them hold some type of weapon, some have katanas, some have chains of kunai, others with large claws, etc. Sasori is said to have destroyed an entire country with these puppets. Sasori opens the compartment in his right chest, revealing a hundred chakra strings that each connect to one of these puppets. Though they lack teamwork, they make up for it by barraging their opponent to wear them down.

    Human Puppet Technique:
    Sasori's puppets were unique in that they were made from the still-living bodies of humans. These human puppets were more versatile than regular puppets, since, in addition to having many dangerous devices installed within them (as is common with regular puppets), they were also able to use chakra and perform any techniques or kekkei genkai abilities that they possessed during their life.

    Red Sand Fist:
    A style created by Sasori himself. The main weakness for a puppeteer was short-range combat. Sasori was an intelligent guy and had realised this weakness, and thus created a fighting style which revolves around using his own puppet body's natural flexibility as well as modifications to fighting in a close range environment.

    - Requires a puppet body.

    Lightning Release:
    Although not physically shown in the manga, Sasori may be able to use Lightning Release to a high extent that he can create the techniques at a faster pace than normal. Techniques which would normally take time to erect themselves such as the Four-Pillar Bind work at a faster rate.

    ✦ (To Kankurō) "Since I don't like to wait or make people wait… I'll end this quickly."
    ♢ (To Deidara) "What? You call those explosions fine art? Fine art is something wonderful that's left long into the future… eternal beauty."
    ✦ (To Sakura) "Want to try to become like this too? If you do then you'll probably get what I'm saying. A body that does not decay… a puppet body can be rebuilt over and over… unfettered by a mortal lifespan."

    Fun Facts:
    ✦ Sasori (蠍) means "scorpion".
    ♢ Sasori had the same birth date as Masashi Kishimoto.
    ✦ Sasori's hobby is remodelling his puppetry collection.
    ♢ Sasori's favourite phrase is "eternal beauty".
    ✦ Sasori had one of the longest battle times in the anime (8 full episodes), giving him roughly about 3 hours of battle screen-time

    Dropping Chiyo, should this be approved. (
    Not sure if I need training in Iron Sand, but it's there anyway.
    It's about time I made a Sasori bio. xD
    There's a spoilered bit in the history section about how he was able to live and go to Kirigakure, just to make a bit more sense. Remove it if it violates any rules.
