Kamatari (カマタリ) is the personal summon of Temari.


Kamatari is a giant, white-furred weasel with a dark green eye-patch covering his left eye. He carries a large sickle that is almost as long as himself.


He was summoned using Temari's Giant Folding Fan as a medium through the Summoning: Quick Beheading Dance, after which he slices down everything in his path with enough force to decimate an entire forest. After he starts moving, he can't be seen by the unaided human eye. He was summoned holding a giant Kama with other smaller sickles around him and something that resembles a Chinese lantern with the kanji for scythe (, kama) on it. In the manga, Kamatari gave a battle cry before attacking.

  • Kamatari is an obvious reference to the Japanese yōkai kamaitachi (鎌鼬, literally meaning: scythe weasel); however, instead of being simply a weasel with razor sharp-claws, it is literally a weasel (, itachi) with a scythe (, kama).
