Shinki (シンキ, Shinki) is a shinobi of Sunagakure's Kazekage clan and a member of Team Shinki.


Shinki is described as the calm and collected leader-like figure of his team.[1] Shinki is shown to be very prideful and proud of his heritage, telling his father their team won't tarnish his name and will achieve victory. He also is very confident in his teams abilities, not believing the teams from the other villages to be anything to worry about in the upcoming Chūnin Exams.[3]



Shinki's appearance.

Shinki has dark spiky hair, small eyebrows and grey eyes. Just like Kankurō, Shinki sports face paint, which takes the shape of two red "E"-like markings that are similar to designs on Gaara's Sand Gourd.

His outfit consists of a dark cloak made of Iron Sand which he wears over his Suna flak jacket, a brown full-body outfit, which covers his throat, complete with a dark blue Suna forehead protector and black calf-length shinobi sandals. He is also seen carrying his skeleton-like puppet alongside him.

In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, he is seen with bandages around his wrists and ankles.


Shinki is a powerful shinobi who excels in his team due to his observant eye.[1] He can also use the Puppet Technique in unison with his Iron Sand.

Shinki is capable of using the Magnet Release kekkei genkai, allowing him to control Iron Sand, which he conveniently carries around with him, shaped into a cloak. Using such ninjutsu, Shinki can create a single platform, connected to his cloak, which is capable of supporting him and his allies, allowing them to float while on it. He also uses the Iron Sand in conjunction with his puppet, and to immobilise opponents.

Shinki Defeats Chocho

Shinki defeats Chōchō.

While en route to Konohagakure to participate in the Chūnin Exams, Shinki expressed his belief they would achieve victory and would not sully his father Gaara's name. He exclaimed that the other teams would be no problem for them.[4]

Shinki entered the Chūnin Exams with his team-mates. In the first round, he utilised his Iron Sand to support his team-mates and himself to prevent them from falling into the pit. In the second round, Shinki managed to capture Metal Lee's team's flag, causing the latter to pound his fist on the floor in frustration. In the final round, he was matched against Chōchō Akimichi and defeated her using his Iron Sand.
