Known Missions

Eliminate shinobi from Kirigakure

Team Ro was once tasked to kill hostile shinobi from Kirigakure, who were all eliminated during their escape.

Eliminate all hostiles

Team Ro members, Kakashi and Itachi, were sent to watch over the exchange of information between a team from Konohagakure and the Prajñā Group of the Land of Woods. In the likely event of betrayal, they were to eliminate all opposition which actually happened, as the Prajñā Group indeed attempted to betray Konohagakure.

Eliminate the saboteurs from Kusagakure

  • Assigned to: Kakashi Hatake, Itachi Uchiha, Tenzō and two others
  • Outcome: Success

One time, five shinobi from Kusagakure tried to sabotage a street by burying explosive tags. Team Ro was tasked to kill them on the spot without leaving any traces that could burden Konohagakure.

Investigate barrier transgression

  • Assigned to: Kakashi Hatake
  • Outcome: Partial Success

After several instances of an intruder bypassing the Konoha barrier system around the Uchiha clan district, Kakashi was tasked with investigating. Unable to uncover the perpetrator, Kakashi reported his findings to the Third Hokage.

Intercept Coup d'État

  • Assigned to: Presumed all
  • Outcome: Failure

Team Ro accompanied the Third Hokage to the Uchiha clan district in order to pacify the Uchiha and thus averting civil war. Their efforts however turn out to be irrelevant, due to the slaughter of the majority of the clan by Itachi.

Treat Sasuke Uchiha

The sole survivor of the Uchiha Clan Downfall, Sasuke Uchiha, was found by Yūgao Uzuki, a member of Team Ro who was tasked by Hiruzen Sarutobi to ensure Sasuke's survival by bringing him to the Medic Corps.

Dispose of the corpses

  • Assigned to: Presumed all
  • Outcome: Success

Directly after the slaughter of the Uchiha clan, Team Ro and the other present Anbu units were tasked to take away the corpses which was a tremendous mission even for Anbu standards.
