Ginkaku, like his brother, is relatively burly, albeit smaller than his sibling. He seemingly possesses long and light-colored hair with prominent dark tips, arranged in a style reminiscent of a Native American headdress. These features are accentuated by the presence of two distinctive horns on his head as well as a light colored rectangular marking on his nose.

Ginkaku (銀角, Ginkaku, Literally meaning: Silver Horn) was one of Kumogakure's Gold and Silver Brothers.

Appearance

Ginkaku, like his brother, is relatively burly, albeit smaller than his sibling. He seemingly possesses long and light-colored hair with prominent dark tips, arranged in a style reminiscent of a Native American headdress. These features are accentuated by the presence of two distinctive horns on his head as well as a light colored rectangular marking on his nose. Unusually, he bears the same characteristic whisker-like marks on his face as Naruto Uzumaki, attributed to the traces of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's chakra.

His typical attire is comprised from the standard Kumogakure flak jacket, worn over a high collared sleeveless uniform, and a pair of simple wrist-guards. The kanji for 'silver' (, gin) is tattooed on his right shoulder. He carries a large gourd around his neck attached to a thick rope.

Abilities

He and his brother were well known for their strength during their lifetime, so much so that one Kumogakure shinobi trembled in fear when he saw them and the Fourth Raikage considered disregarding his duties as leader of the Allied Shinobi Forces to personally confront the pair. The brothers both possess enormous chakra reserves, likely due to having been infected with the Fox's chakra (which they received after being trapped inside its belly for two weeks). Furthermore, he and Kinkaku were the only ones who were able to use the four of the five ultimate ninja treasures gathered by the Hidden Cloud Village. [2]

Part II

Shinobi World War Arc

After his resurrection by Kabuto Yakushi, Ginkaku and Kinkaku are part of an Akatsuki coalition sent to the western coast of the Land of Lightning, where they are met by the First Division.[2] As the brothers are confronted by Darui, he remarks about how pathetic it is that they of all people would be used for the technique created by the Second Hokage, considering that they were the ones who killed him.[3]

Trivia

  • Both Ginkaku and his brother are likely based on two characters from the Chinese classic "Journey to the West". In this story, Kinkaku and Ginkaku are two demon king brothers, known as the Great King Kinkaku (金角大王, Kinkaku-daiō) and the Great King Ginkaku (銀角大王, Ginkaku-daiō). The siblings possess five treasured tools; one of which, called the Crimson Gourd (紅葫蘆, Benihisago), had the ability to suck in their opponents, before melting them once they were trapped within. This item presumably served as the inspiration behind the distinctive gourd that Ginkaku is observed with in "Naruto".
