C (シー, Shī, Viz: Shee, English TV: Cee) is a jōnin from Kumogakure, and along with his partner Darui, he served as the Fourth Raikage's support.[1]


In the anime, when Konohagakure and Sunagakure sent an invitation for Kumogakure to join in an impromptu Chūnin Exams, the Fourth Raikage scoffed at the idea, believing it to be a joined attempt from the two villages to attack Kumogakure while its defences were lowered. A rejected the offer and sent C and Darui to make sure Killer B would not sneak off to this event.[2]


In contrast to his easy-going partner, C is portrayed as a very serious and mature individual normally seen with a look of self-assured, confident look on his face.[1] He often puts duty above all else, as shown when he told Darui there was no time for rest upon their return from the Kage Summit as they had to begin planning immediately. He also seems to have a slight dislike for Konoha ninja, calling Naruto's group "Konoha dogs".[3]


C's full appearance.

C is a young man with dark eyes and short, blond hair which he wears parted in the front. He wears the standard attire of the Kumo-nin: a sleeveless, black shirt with a one-strap-over-one-shoulder white flak jacket, black forehead protector, characteristic black, elbow-length arm-guards, and the red and white Kumogakure shin-guards along with a pair of sandals.

When he joined the Allied Shinobi Forces, he switched his regular Kumo forehead protector for the one issued by the Alliance.


C is a highly skilled shinobi, being chosen as one of the Fourth Raikage's bodyguards during the Five Kage Summit. He could also pressure the likes of Taka, alongside Darui and the Fourth Raikage.


C simultaneously using Yin and Lightning Release.

C is able to find and track down targets by sensing their chakra, even from extended distances.[4] He can use Medical Ninjutsu to heal injuries.[5] He is also competent in nature transformation, able to use Lightning and Yin Release to blind his opponent while simulataneously inserting false images.[6]


C is also very analytical and knowledgeable on foreign shinobi abilities, recognising the Mangekyō Sharingan[7] and Amaterasu.[8] He even knew of Itachi Uchiha's use of Amaterasu, stating that Sasuke was more skilled at manipulating the black flames than the former.[9] He could also deduce how Sasuke's Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi worked after only seeing it once.[10]

Part II

Five Kage Summit

Main article: Five Kage Summit

C and Darui protecting A.

C and Darui were chosen to escort the Fourth Raikage to the Kage Summit in the Land of Iron. During a brief rendezvous with Team Samui while en route, C sensed that they have been followed by Naruto Uzumaki, Kakashi Hatake, and Yamato and after the Raikage spoke with the Konoha-nin, they continued on their way. Once they arrived and the meeting began, C and Darui came to the Raikage's defence following his outburst, blocking the attacks of the other Kage's bodyguards. After being told to stand down, they returned to their posts after things settled down, only to again come to the Raikage's side when White Zetsu appeared. White Zetsu revealed that Sasuke Uchiha, Killer B's captor, was nearby, so C and Darui accompanied the Raikage in tracking Sasuke down.

C healing A.

C located Sasuke and his team and reported a number of samurai casualties as they got nearer. When they arrived, C launched an attack with his Lightning Release: Lightning Illusion Flash of Lightning Pillar technique to blind Sasuke and his team, creating an opening for the Raikage and Darui to attack. The Raikage then instructed C to find and eliminate Sasuke's sensor. C was not able to defend himself properly during his search, and despite Darui's attempts to keep him safe, he is struck by one of Sasuke's genjutsu and passed out. Darui later revived him and helped him get on his feet, and together they observed the Raikage's fight with Sasuke. The Raikage was eventually struck by Sasuke's Amaterasu and was forced to cut off his arm. When the fight was interrupted by the Three Sand Siblings, C used medical ninjutsu to stop the bleeding and silently worried about how far the Raikage was willing to go.[10]

When Sasuke activated his Susanoo, he launched an attack on the pillars, causing the ceiling to come crashing down on C and the others. In the midst of the chaos, Sasuke escaped to locate Danzō. Having survived the attack, C and the others followed behind only to find Tobi, who then explained his Eye of the Moon Plan to them and revealed that B only pretended to be captured. Relieved, C believed this was a case of B trying to get some vacation time, which did not surprise Darui. After the formation of the Allied Shinobi Forces, C joined the Raikage in searching for B, but before they left, C told the samurai that two members of Sasuke's team were still in the area.

From several miles away, C was able to detect B's chakra contained within a large sphere of water. When they arrived there, they found B fighting Kisame Hoshigaki. C thanked Kisame for producing the water dome and thus, inadvertently helping them find B. After Kisame was "eliminated" they all returned to Kumogakure.

C later attended a war council meeting where he advised the Raikage on how to form a reconnaissance team to find the Akatsuki base.

C amongst the Sensor Division.

When the war began, C was placed in the Sensor Division. C was a bit unsettled since it is the first war he would ever fight in. However, Ao told him that if they did their jobs well, they could have a huge impact on the outcome of the war and not to slack off.[11]

Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax

C and other Kumo shinobi blind the Ten-Tails.

On the second day, mobilising with the remaining members of his division and the Allied Shinobi Forces, C arrived at the battlefield where the jinchūriki were. With this, he and the other members of the Allied Shinobi Forces stood to face their opposition. Following the strategy relayed to them by Shikaku, C and Darui, along with several other Kumo-nin begin the assault. Launching their assault, C and several others blinded the enemy with the Lightning Release: Lightning Illusion Flash of Lightning Pillar technique, allowing Darui and other Storm Release bearers to use the Storm Release: Laser Circus technique to aim for the beast's eye.

Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki

Main article: Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki Following Obito Uchiha's attack of the shinobi on the battlefield, it was revealed that C, while sustaining injuries, was still alive. He later commented on the change that had occurred in Naruto Uzumaki's chakra from a sensory perspective and when he recovered, he fought alongside the other members of the Alliance while shrouded in Kurama's chakra. Later, as the Alliance succeeded in freeing the tailed beasts from Obito, C sensed that the latter was still alive and immediately notified his comrades. As C notices the tailed beasts were about to face Madara, he orders the alliance to move away from the area.

Creation and Conception

Masashi Kishimoto noted that he created C with a cool, good-looking male idol in mind, but also as a serious character. As such, C generally has a look of aplomb on his face and wears the standard attire of Kumogakure without any embellishments.


  • "Shī" is the Japanese pronunciation of the letter "C". This parallels the name of several other shinobi of Kumogakure whose names are letters of the alphabet.
