Name: Third Raikage
Nickname: Sandaime Raikage | Strongest Shield | Strongest Spear
Looks: The Third Raikage is a tall, dark-skinned man with a muscular, body builder like stature, long blond beard and hair. He has unusual eyes which has green-coloured irides, a dark sclerae and no pupils. His top lip also had a darker pigmentation than the bottom. He also has a mole above his right eyebrow. He has the kanji for "lightning" tattooed on his right shoulder. His canine teeth were also slightly elongated. His typical attire consisted of Kumogakure's distinctive single shoulder-strap flak jacket with no other clothing underneath, a forehead protector that he wears like a bandanna and a thick rope belt tied just above his black pants. It was also shown that at some point in the past, he also wore bandages around his forearms.
Personality: The Third Raikage is a calm and seemingly level-headed person. He is also a man of honour as seen when he became outraged when Mū tells Ōnoki to take advantage of the Allied Shinobi Forces after it is disbanded. He is also a very proud and caring individual who will readily use himself as a shield or "go-between" to protect his comrades.
He, like the other Kage, was upset that he has to fight people from his own village but at the same time he had a lot of confidence and believed that the new generation would be able to surpass and defeat them. He is caring for the people of his village, as he made it a personal responsibility to capture the Eight-Tails whenever its host would lose control, as well as fought against ten thousand enemies all by himself in order to allow his comrades to escape safely.
Village of Birth: Kumogakure
Village of Alliance: Kumogakure
Ninja Rank: Kage
Specialty: Lightning, Black Lightning, Taijutsu
History: The Third's rule was punctuated by the berserk attacks of the Eight-Tails but as Kumogakure couldn't afford to dispose of such a valuable war deterrent, he was forced to look for a suitable jinchūriki in quick succession, after the conclusion of each rampage. During one of these attacks, the Third fought the Eight-Tails alone, allowing his comrades to escape. He made it a personal duty to combat the Eight-Tails whenever its jinchūriki lost control, with even his son eventually becoming part of the group that supported him during these occurrences. At one point, he chose to seal the Eight-Tails in the Kohaku no Jōhei, resulting in the host's death, hoping that someone else would have more success in controlling it.
Between these attacks, the Third held try-outs along with Dodai in order to search for a tag-team partner for his son, which is a long-standing tradition for the Raikage. As the exercise was seemingly going to end in failure again, he lamented the fact that this would have been unnecessary if A had an actual brother. After seeing the dummy's head finally fall off, he looks on at B and his son, glad that they had finally found a suitable candidate. Ultimately, when Killer B was made the jinchūriki, the Eight-Tails' rampages were at long last brought to an end.
The Raikage faces off against ten thousand shinobi alone.
At some point he also mentored Darui, passing the secrets of the Black Lightning technique down to just him. In his later years, he once faced an opposing force of ten thousand shinobi by himself for three consecutive days and nights, in order to allow his comrades to escape to safety. He would however become renowned for his extraordinary level of durability and endurance and strength above all else, to the point where his body itself would become reputed as the "strongest shield".
Abilities: The Fact that he became the Third Raikage is testiment enough to his Abilities. He like his son A have a enormous reserve of chakra which goes hand in hand with his immense stamina so much so he was able to halt the advance of an army of 10,000 shinobi for 3 days and 3 nights. To complement this great stamina he also has great physical strength and speed. His is capable of withstanding attacks of B rank and below without damage. This has given him the saying that his body is the strongest shield. The Third was a very powerful Lightning Release user, known for using Black Lightning, which he taught to Darui. Like his son he is also capable of using the Lightning Release Armour. He also possesses a technique that is comparable to the chidori and the Raikiri where he focuses his lightning chakra into his fingers, creating a strong piercing effect and can make the piercing effect even more powerful by focusing the lightning chakra by reducing the number of fingers used. With this power he could cut off all the tails of the Eight-Tails at once. Dodai claims that it is his strongest ninjutsu referring to it as the "strongest spear" when the Raikage used the attack with one finger.
The Third was undoubtedly an immensely powerful shinobi and is recognised as the greatest Raikage. He was also said to be the only ninja capable of going up against a tailed beast. Even the Eight-Tails commented that he was a very tough and resilient man.
Lightning: Lightning being speciality of Raikage, so after mastering lightning, he had perfect understanding of lightning, its jutsus and their working etc. Also he gained the ability to perform lightning techniques very quickly, at very fast rate, faster than any other element.
Taijutsu: The Third was said to possess great strength and speed. His strength was able to launch a man-sized target several metres and through solid rock with a single punch. He was fast enough to dodge Naruto's Wind Release: Rasenshuriken twice, despite the technique's immense speed. Naruto even noted that his speed was on par with that of his son's. Even more impressive, he was renowned for his tremendous level of durability so much so that his body gained the name the "strongest shield" because it could withstand any type of technique. A true testament to his resilience was seen from how he survived a direct impact of the Rasenshuriken with little to no damage despite his Lightning Release Armour being neutralised. With this trait, he was the only person of this time capable of being transported by the Heavenly Transfer Technique without being torn to shreds because of his tough body. He also had equally immense reserves of stamina and endurance, able to fend off ten thousand shinobi by himself for three days and nights.
Tools: Kunai, senbons, shurikens, and other assortments of weapons that he may need
