Toroi (トロイ, Toroi) was a famed Kumogakure shinobi.


In the anime, it was stated that Toroi was partnered with Osoi. On one of their missions, Osoi died, but it was reported that he fought to the end. At some point after his death, Orochimaru desired to reincarnate Toroi but ended up reincarnating Osoi instead.[2]


Toroi is described as being cautious, careful and discreet.[1]


Toroi had tan skin, a rather broad face with chiselled features, characterised by a strong cleft chin and a pair of prominent sideburns that descend from his medium-length, dull-purple coloured hair. He wore the standard Kumogakure outfit and forehead protector, as well as a long scarf wrapped around his neck.


He was a renowned shinobi whose skills earned him enough fame during his lifetime that Kabuto Yakushi eventually chose to reincarnate him to fight for Akatsuki, during the Fourth Shinobi World War. During battle, to keep the use of his hands free, Toroi had a tendency to carry his scroll in his mouth. His skills in bukijutsu were held in high regard by his fellow Kumo shinobi, as even his own partner stated he "couldn't hold a candle to Toroi", and while under the impression Musai and Nonota had defeated him themselves several of their allies were amazed.



Toroi's distinctive fighting style.

He possessed several distinctive square-shaped shuriken in various sizes, which were kept sealed within a scroll when not in use. Due to the considerable quantity and/or dimensions of these tools, he often fought with a scroll held between his teeth, so as to retain the use of both hands. Also, to increase the amount of shuriken that could be thrown consecutively, Toroi would thread a substantial number of them along a length of rope, in such a manner that he could launch the entirety with just a single swing.

Nature Transformation

Toroi possessed the Magnet Release kekkei genkai, which he used together with a selection of metallic weapons, in particular, his shuriken. By magnetising these tools, Toroi could produce a powerful magnetic field within any other object that came into contact with them, which would then attract other magnetic objects towards the target, dramatically increasing the chances of a successful follow-up attack. However, the magnetic force that is generated, lessens with each transfer.[3]

Part II

Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation

In the anime, during Kabuto's transformation into his final form seen in the war, Toroi's body was summoned alongside those of the former Five Kage, Akatsuki members and Jinchūriki. In preparation for the Fourth Shinobi World War, Toroi is reincarnated by Kabuto Yakushi to fight against the Allied Shinobi Forces, before being mobilised alongside Gari, Pakura, Haku and Zabuza Momochi. Separating from this group at some point during their relocation, Toroi is later discovered trailing Musai and Nonota, with numerous shuriken in hand and scroll in mouth. Identified by the Kumo-nin, who attempts to alert his ally to the best method to not fall victim to his Magnet Release, Toroi goes on the offensive.

Despite the pre-emptive warning, the unaware Suna-nin still falls foul of the attack and is evidently terrified as the details of the technique are disclosed. Prepared to conclude the battle using even larger shuriken, Toroi is ambushed from behind by Naruto Uzumaki wielding a Rasengan, before being sealed by the previously panic-stricken Suna-nin.

Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax

Later, with the release of the Impure World Reincarnation technique, a light of sorts encased Toroi's sealed body as the technique was dispelled and his soul was returned to the afterlife.
