Team Info

The Kinkaku Force (金角部隊, Kinkaku Butai) was a special team of at least twenty highly skilled shinobi from Kumogakure.


During the First Shinobi World War, the team tracked down Konohagakure's Escort Unit, and surrounded them on the battlefield.[1] The Second Hokage acted as a decoy in order for his comrades to escape, and ultimately was killed by Kinkaku.[2]


  • Kinkaku (金角) means "Golden Horn". It is the name of a character from the famous story Journey to the West.
  • Due to Kinkaku being a criminal by the time the team faced Tobirama, it's likely the group wasn't loyal to Kumo anymore.
