|(邪忍, Janin, Literally meaning: Evil Ninja)|
|Anime||Naruto Episode #187|
The Janin (邪忍, Literally meaning: Evil Ninja) were a trio of brothers with special ninjutsu.
The Janin took over the Land of Vegetables with the aid of disloyal and greedy courtiers. After their rise to power, they betrayed their allies and mercilessly killed them all. The three brothers were distrusting of each other. Renga states that he would have killed Jiga and Ruiga if the shinobi from Konohagakure hadn't already done so. Ruiga was killed by Jiga, who in turn died due to his weakness being exploited by Hinata Hyūga. Renga was left at the mercy of his enemies, but Haruna seemed to be unable to go through with killing him in revenge, leaving the latter's fate unknown.
