During the Third Shinobi World War, he led a team with Kakkō and Mahiru, using their superb diversionary tactics to attack the enemy. With his Hiding with Camouflage Technique he was able to approach his enemies from their blind spot, easily killing them with a single strike. They confronted Team Minato, led by Kakashi Hatake, during the Third Shinobi World War, managing to take Rin Nohara hostage.
Using his Hiding With Camouflage Technique, he was able to sneak up on Kakashi, blinding his left eye. Immediately following this, Obito Uchiha awakened his Sharingan and used it to find and kill Taiseki. 
He was quiet, unlike his partner Kakkō. He was also very cautious, as he took his battle with Kakashi and Obito "nice and slow", even if they were kids. Even during their battle, he was careful to immediately discard the kunai with Kakashi's blood on it so that he couldn't be tracked.
He has a wide frame, with neck-length black hair, and a bandanna with his village's forehead protector. He wore the standard Iwagakure shinobi uniform, complete with a flak jacket and a shirt having no right sleeve along with a dark indument hanging from his waist onto his right leg, reaching to his knees.
Reflecting Taiseki's cautious nature, he could perform the Hiding with Camouflage Technique, which allowed him to manipulate the light around himself to become invisible. Taiseki could use this technique to move around and strike his enemies unseen.
