A member of the Akimichi Clan.
Dōtō was an influential person during the war between Konohagakure and Kumogakure and part of a team consisting of him, Minato Namikaze, Gaku Inuzuka alongside his ninken and a fourth shinobi. During one of the battles, his team clashed with the A–B Combo. However, while Minato was fighting their enemies, the Konoha shinobi received a signal to retreat.
Dōtō was an influential shinobi during the previous war and was placed to the battlefields' front-lines for that reason, hinting towards remarkable skills. Although the full extent of his abilities are unknown, as part of the Akimichi clan, in can be assumed Dōtō can convert calories into chakra in order to perform his clan's secret techniques. He is also seemingly proficient with wielding a bō.
- When written as "同等", Dōtō stands for "equality", while "堂塔" is an old way to write "temple" or "temple buildings".
