(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. 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
. During the Third Shinobi World War
, Danzō agreed to help Hanzō
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
play 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 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.

- 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.
