Section header added by Konoha's Black Blur no content inside of it so I cleaned it up. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) current discussion Jul 12, 2008 @ 06:33 (UTC)


was deidara in the village at the time when he was forced to join Akatsuki by Itachi, Sasori and (i forgot who else), because that would meen we saw part of it (through the entrance to wherever Deidara was) Vik0z0z (talk) 16:29, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Deidara was already a missing-nin then. I doubt he would even be close to Iwagakure. However, we most likely already got a peak of Iwagakure in the cover of chapter 263. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 21:24, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Well that's not as far fetched as you suggested ShounenSuki. Well we got a glimpse of Iwagakure (despite the text over it) in chapter 454 page 1. I think this is as close as we can get to see how it looks like (we'll just have to wait for the anime version, or one with no text). Cyrus1 17:05, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Shouldnt it be noted that most Iwa-nin have dark rings around their eyes? Deidara has it, Onoki has it, Kurotsuchi has it, Taiseki has it, even Han has it.

Iwagakure notable features to be added to Iwa article?

There are many notable features Iwagakure Ninja have. The most common one is that most of the Iwa-Nin (specifically jonin) only have one sleeve (their left arm). Reference, Taiseki, Kakko, Mahiru, Kurotsuchi, Shibito Azuma. Another feautre is that most Iwa-Nin have dark rings around their eyes (Deidara, Kurotsuchi, Taiseki, Onoki, Han, etc)

They do not have rings around their eyes and i'm pretty sure their attire has been noted already. If not you can add it or it'll be added. Sign your posts next time etc....--Cerez365 (talk) 16:43, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Old topic but... it indeed appears that many Iwa-nin wear some kind of eyeliner. Even a random one in 512 has it. Mohrpheus (Talk) 15:33, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe it's their depiction of ethnicity. Konoha has generic people, Kumo has black people, Suna has their desert gear, Iwa people have distinctive eye lines. Who knows. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 14:57, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

  • I'm not too sure what you mean by 'generic people'
  • There's are white people in Kumo as well
  • your Suna point is ridiculous...they live in a desert
  • Not all Iwa ninja have eye lines

I'm still also not sure how any of this depicts ethnicity....--Cerez☺ (talk) 17:17, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

By generic, I mean the generic manga style person. Looking at most Shonen manga there is a certain standard depiction to a person. Yes there are people fitting this standard in Kumo also, but while it also has these people, no other village has been shown to have notably dark skinned people. My Suna point is exactly the fact that they live in a desert. Culturally speaking their people have adapted to living in the desert, the desert is part of their culture and thus their clothes and such reflect this. Outside of ninja, you can look at anyone from any village and you probably wouldn't be able to place them. However if that person happens to be wearing a long robe and turban like headgear, you can come to the conclusion they're from Suna. I haven't exactly paid attention to the eye liner of every Iwa ninja and finally it was a half-baked, half-joking theory. I wasn't even really taking myself seriously, but if it's gonna become a discussion might as well put it out there. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 19:40, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Kumo is an allusion to the Western world if I may say, specifically America. The rapping, black & white races, professional wrestling and even making the techniques sound like their English counterparts. Konoha is, most likely, Japan. Hawkeye's point about Suna is, I believe, correct. Kiri and Iwa pose problems for me since their cultures have not been expanded enough so far, other than the fact that a few characters from Kiri are homage to the tropics (Kisame/Fuguki = fishmen, Jinchuuriki = 3 tailed Turtle)Darkerratum (talk) 03:47, March 1, 2011 (UTC)
