Gantetsu (ガンテツ, Gantetsu) was a chūnin-level shinobi of Iwagakure prior to his defection. He was reputed as the Legendary Dark Shinobi (伝説の暗忍, Densetsu no Annin).


Gantetsu claimed to have been a dangerous chūnin of Iwagakure, known as the Legendary Dark Shinobi (伝説の暗忍, Densetsu no Annin). He and Chōseki eventually defected from their village, and came to Tanzaku Quarters to seek a more luxurious life.


Gantetsu seems to be quite rude and impolite, as well as arrogant in his self-proclaimed status. He is also quite belligerent, readily attacking or intimidating people when they don't do what he wants. He also seems to have a taste for designer clothes, willingly paying a great amount of money for one.


Gantetsu has a head of spiky dull-black hair, thick sideburns and dark-coloured, squinted eyes. He wore a yellow collared shirt with a blue tie underneath a high-collared white jacket suit.

Search for Tsunade

Naruto accidentally spilled some food on his jacket, and then was being forced to pay for a new jacket, which apparently was very expensive. He alongside Chōseki eventually got beaten up by Jiraiya's Rasengan. Jiraiya also took Gantetsu's money to pay for Kazabune's destroyed cart.


  • In manga Jiraiya steals his wallet while in anime he is given it out of respect.
