Team Info

The Wandering Ninja Clan were mercenaries who appeared in Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom.


While being missing-nin, the forehead protectors they wore bear no markings, thus not signifying which village they originated from (if at all). As a further sign of their lack of allegiance, Ishidate showed no remorse when he accidentally killed his contractor in reckless fury.

All three had low-cut hair but wore what seemed to be wigs and specialised in close-combat, combined with a performance-dulling drug that confounds their opponents.

Plot Overview

Shabadaba hired the three ninja to kill Kakeru Tsuki, the king of the Land of the Moon, and then to kill the king's son Michiru and grandson Hikaru, so Shabadaba can inherit the throne. While successful in killing Kakeru, the three ninja were stopped from killing the other two, and the three were later killed by Naruto Uzumaki, Rock Lee, and Sakura Haruno.

When Team 7, along with the circus, entered the castle to rescue Michiru, Shabadaba ordered the three ninja to counterattack. Later, Shabadaba ordered Ishidate to kill Michiru as well, but Ishidate was too focused on killing Naruto that he accidentally petrified his employer in a reckless rage. Ultimately, the three ninjas were all killed by Team 7.
