Not much is known about Kumade's life. The anime revealed that he entered the Academy at the same time as Kakashi Hatake and others. At some point in time, Kumade clashed with Zabuza Momochi of Kirigakure. He was however killed by the latter with a combination of the Hiding in Mist Technique and Silent Killing.
Kumade had a short, spiky grey hair. He wore the standard attire of the Konoha-nin complete with a forehead protector and flak jacket along with black gloves with metal plates on the backhand. He also wore a mask that covered the lower half of his face making him look a lot like Kakashi.
- "Kumade" (熊手) can mean "rake/bamboo rake" and "fork". "Toriichi" is written with the kanji "酉", which can be read as "west", and "市", which means "city".
- In the manga, Zabuza used a tantō to kill Kumade. In the anime, he used a kunai.
