The Land of Fangs (牙の国, Kiba no Kuni) is a country featured in episode 177 of the original Naruto anime. There was, at one point, tension between this nation and the Land of Claws. The two sides barely averted a war thanks to Jiraiya's Icha Icha novel, which was delivered to the Land of Fangs' daimyō by mistake. The Fang Daimyō, who was an Icha Icha fan, thinking it was a peace offering from the Claw Daimyō and such avoided the war. This land is seemingly marked by numerous steep peaks, probably leading to its name.
