Omoi (オモイ, Omoi) is a shinobi of Kumogakure and a member of Team Samui. The team is sent to Konoha by the Raikage to inform them that they would be taking care of Sasuke Uchiha and Akatsuki. He seems to be Kirābī's student along with the other two members of his team. He also is seen with a lollipop in all his appearances and carries a sword on his back.
Hunt for the Eight-Tails
In his first appearance, he and Karui argued over the possible reasons that they could have been called by the Raikage. He thought he was going to be scolded for putting mayonnaise on his potatoes; the argument started, however, with Omoi suggesting that Samui's back problems stem from her large breasts, something Karui doesn't need to worry about.
Post-Invasion of Pain
Later, after Naruto's victory over Nagato, Omoi and his team are seen traveling to Konoha, when he worries that once they get there, a girl will fall for him and once he has to leave, she'll commit suicide out of loneliness. After a short argument with Karui, she throws a boulder at him. While he worries that she could have buried Konoha had she caused an avalanche, Karui angrily yells that he overreacts too much. After they arrive at Konoha, they are shocked to find a giant crater in its place (caused by Pain's Shinra Tensei shortly before his battle with Naruto). Omoi blames Karui for the crater being there, while Samui says they should ask someone for information on what happened.
- His name is a pun on two words which have the pronunciation "Omoi":
- 重い, which means "heavy", contrasting with Karui, which means "light";
- 思い, which means "thought", alluding to his thoughtful manner.
