Origin: Leaf Village (presumably)
The most vicious and trecherous of the Three Legendary
Ninja's summoning creatures, Manda's 'master' is Orochimaru, though he is not very loyal, and even threatens to eat him. Even
when baited with the appearence of his enemy GamaBunta, Manda still demands over one hundred sacrifices to be made after the
battle. This giant snake uses several powerful means of killing his enemies: if his huge weight does not overwhelm the enemy,
he can wrap his scaly body around them and constrict them or bite their head off with its deadly fangs. After battling with
Jiraiya's GamaBunta and Tsunade's Katsuyu, he is pinned to the ground when Tsunade thrusts GamaBunta's sword straight through
his head. After this, he threatens to kill Orochimaru if they ever meet again and disappears.

sensei. During that time it seems she had also received the "Jyuin (Curse Seal)", but for an as yet unknown reason Orochimaru's
connection to her was severed and the Seal disappeared. Though when Orochimaru reappeared, he was able to make Anko's Jyuin
return. Thus incapacitating her with pain, as well as ending their fight. In which Anko exhibited forbidden techniques which

A Chuunin level ninja, he is Iruka's assistant
instructor at the ninja academy. Not a very skilled ninja apparently, he devises a plan to steal the Leaf Village forbidden
scroll using Naruto as a fall-guy, intent upon learning the powerful forbidden Jutsus within. Mizuki's scheme goes according
plan until Iruka gets to Naruto before he does. A fight then takes place which ultimately ends with Naruto saving Iruka's
life, and using the forbidden Jutsu Kage Bunshin (Shadow Clone) x1000 to beat Mizuki to a bloody pulp - literally.
|Momochi Zabuza |
Introduced: Chapter ?
Ninja (Jounin), Missing-nin
Affiliates: Haku, Gatou
Origin: Mist Village
Abilities: Water Dragon
Blast, Water Type; Explosion, Water Prison, Water Clone, Hidden Mist
Zabuza is a Missing-nin formerly from the Hidden
Mist Village, and the first major baddie that Naruto and team face after graduating as Genins. He is a close friend of Haku,
and (being a mist nin) most of his Jutsus are water-oriented. He is also known as 'Devil of the Hidden Mist' since in the
Hidden Mist Village, there used to be a final Genin graduation exam - a one-on-one fight to the death. However, one day, without
pause or hesitation, a young man who was not even a ninja killed over a hundred of the students. That young man was Zabuza.
The one-on-one system where best friends are forced to kill each other was abolished after this incident. Zabuza is a very
powerful Jounin, as we see in the fights between him and Kakashi. One of his specialties is 'Water Prison' - a large ball
of water that he uses to imprison his opponents, not so much powerful but very affective.
Introduced: Chapter 40
Ninja (Special Jounin), Torture and Interrogation Squad Captain, Examiner
A Tokubetsu (Special) Jounin level ninja, he is
the examiner for the first part of the Chuunin Selection Exam. As the Konoha Gakure (Leaf Village) Assassination Squad: Torture
and Interrogation Captain, the design of the first test is obviously his. Described as a sadist, while not even exerting physical
torture, Ibiki can easily make people experience mental suffering brought on by his interrogation skills. He knows the human
mind completely, that's what makes him scary. By attacking a person's mind he can gain control over their spirit. Their weaknesses
all float to the surface. It is said you can't escape Ibiki's interrogation. Ibiki bears the physical scars of having been
horrible tortured himself, perhaps illustrating his ability to withstand torture, without giving up valuable information.

Abilities: Mist Clone
One of Oboro's team-mates, he is also
