Character Description: Kisame Hoshigaki

One of the members of the Akatsuki group, Kisame is a deadly terrorist trained for evil purposes. Partners with Uchiha Itachi, he remains loyal as a teammate with him. Known as the Daimyo Killer, he was formerly a hidden mist shinobi. Water tribes were constantly searching for this shinobi after he terrorized them.

Enlisted with Itachi as a S-Class criminal, Kisame is as deadly as any shinobi can get. Armed with a gigantic broadsword covered with tape, Kisame can crush anything. If his "Samehade" (sharkskin blade) is revealed when the tape unfolds, it becomes an ultimate murder weapon.

His blade also sucks up chakra of people inches from it, though only when he swings it.

Kisame is one of the seven shinobi-gatana of the mist. The ring that Hoshigaki Kisame wears means 'south'. And according to Kisame, his blade, the Samehade, "it doesn't slice, it cuts you to ribbons!" (because it's made up of scales). It only lets Kisame hold it; Might Guy tried to hold it to use it against Kisame, and it responded by shooting out spikes and finding its way back to Kisame.

Kisame's name means "demon shark".
