Kimimaro (君麻呂, Kimimaro) was a shinobi from Otogakure.
Kimimaro was characterised by his pale skin, vivid green eyes, two scarlet dots on his forehead and shoulder-length white hair, which he wore divided down the middle on his head (distinguished by an atypical 'zigzag' hair parting) with two separate partings on either side of his face. Kimimaro wore a specialised version of the traditional Oto-nin ensemble, consisting of a light lavender, loose-fitting, long-sleeved, zip-up shirt, black pants cut off around mid-calf, bandages wrapped around his ankles, traditional shinobi sandals, and a purple, rope-like belt tied in an inverted bow around his waist. He also wore two red, tube-like hair ornaments; one on either side of his head, securing two locks of his silvery-white hair. His Cursed Seal is applied at the base of his throat, where it is a circular pattern of three curved lines.
Kimimaro's skills were great enough that he was accepted by Orochimaru, one of the Sannin. Another testament to his skills was how Orochimaru entrusted him with a cursed seal.
It was shown in a flashback that Kimimaro's abilities came from his kekkei genkai, Shikotsumyaku, which allowed the user to manipulate their own skeletal structure as a means of combat. Kimimaro used this ability to wield his bones as weapons in battle.
Kimimaro was given a cursed seal, which granted him tremendous power. When in his Level 2 form, Kimimaro's appearance was similar to that of a dinosaur, with dark grey skin, and six large bone spines protruding out of his back.
- According to the Naruto series, Kimimaro comes from a clan that allows him to perform Shikotsumyaku.
