|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #184|
Kusune is one to underestimate his opponents based on their appearance.
Kusune has small black eyes and black hair which is presumed because his eyebrows are black. He wears a purple-coloured cloth wrapped around his face and head only showing his eyes. He wears a black-coloured ninja uniform that appears to have had its sleeves torn off up to the shoulder. He wears a black mesh short-sleeved shirt underneath this with black lining around the arm holes. He also wears a small black wrist band around each of his lower arms just below his wrists. He is seen holding the Tsurukame in his right hand.
With his weapon Tsurukame, Kusune could fight several enemies at once using his shield based fighting style. He could use his ninja tool to shoot several senbon as well as other ninja tools. He seemed to have at least basic knowledge about Fuinjutsu, sealing his weapon when not using it.
Past Arc: The Locus of Konoha
Along with his partner Gameru, they asked for ninja tools from Iō, but he refused to give his ninja tools to outsiders. Naruto Uzumaki and Neji Hyūga fought Kusune and Gameru, but were stalemated by Iō's prototype ninja tools. Kusune and Gameru were defeated by Tenten when she used Iō's latest ninja tool, Jidanda.
