Ibiki Morino (森乃イビキ, Morino Ibiki) is the examiner for the first part of the Chūnin Exams, and head of the Konoha's ANBU Torture and Interrogation Force.


File:Ibiki's head.jpg

Ibiki has a large, imposing figure, which he complements with a rugged head and face covered with old wounds and scars. Ibiki's head is always covered to hide a collection of burn marks, punctures from where screws were used, and long slash marks. The scars are indicative of the physical torture he has endured in the past, and illustrates his capacity to endure pain without giving up the desired information to the enemy.


Ibiki is the commanding officer of the Konoha ANBU Torture and Interrogation Force (木ノ葉暗部拷問・尋問部隊, Konoha Anbu Gomon/Jinmon Butai), and is the designer of the Chūnin Exam's first test. Described as a sadist by some, Ibiki has the ability to subject people to great suffering without ever using physical torture. His interrogation skills rely solely on his ability to torture the mind. He has complete knowledge of human psychology; by attacking a person's mind, he can gain control over their spirit.

Part I

Chūnin Exam arc

Ibiki is the first examiner of the Chūnin Exams, testing his students during the written exam with questions too hard for any Genin to answer. Therefore Ibiki secretly put two Chūnin into the crowd to answer the questions and to make other Genin try to cheat off of their exams. Although the point of the test was to test the participants' information-gathering skills, Naruto Uzumaki did not realize this. Nevertheless, Naruto was able to pass the exam without answering a single question, a fact Ibiki took great interest in.

Invasion of Konoha arc

Ibiki later guarded Konoha's borders during the invasion of the village by Sunagakure and Otogakure. He recounted to his colleagues the dark past of Orochimaru, and greeted Jiraiya when he came to their aid.

Land of Tea arc

He appeared again in the Land of Tea in anime, meeting with his younger brother Idate again for the first time in years.

Part II

Hidan and Kakuzu arc

He interrogated Kakuzu's bounty-hunting contact in order to gain information on Akatsuki.

Invasion of Pain arc

Jiraiya later sent him a prisoner from Amegakure. When his interrogation methods proved ineffective, he called on Inoichi Yamanaka's assistance, and ultimately distracted the Akatsuki leader, Pain, in order to give Inoichi time to complete the job.


  • "Morino Ibiki" means "a snore in the forest", which clearly refers to his resemblance to a big bear.
