Shibito Azuma

Shibito Azuma (東シビト, Azuma Shibito) was a jōnin of Iwagakure.


During the Third Shinobi World War he led a battalion of Iwa shinobi against Konoha's. He almost broke through Konoha's defences, but was defeated when Minato Namikaze arrived on the battlefield.


Shibito seemingly had a cruel side as he opted to have his comrades toy with the remaining Konoha-nin on the battlefield instead of killing them directly.


He had short black hair and wore the standard attire of an Iwagakure shinobi inclusive of flak jacketand a forehead protector which he wore like a bandanna.


  • His family name, Azuma (東), means "east", while "Shibito" is alternate reading of 死人, which means "corpse".
  • He is the first, and so far the only Iwagakure ninja to have a known surname.
