Jūgo (重吾, Jūgo) is a shinobi from an unnamed clan, who was held captive by Orochimaru. He is now a member of Sasuke Uchiha's group Taka.


Jūgo is an individual who has two separate personalities. Jūgo normally appears as a calm, gentle person when around people, however, during random times, he develops an uncontrollable rage and becomes bloodthirsty. He also seems to be very loyal to Sasuke, seeing as how he is the only one capable of suppressing his outbursts using the Sharingan. Jūgo also seems to be a problem solver, as shown when he tried to figure out ways to increase Taka's teamwork and fix Sasuke and Itachi's relationship.


Jūgo is a tall, muscular young man who has spiky orange hair, red-orange eyes and a usually calm face. However, when affected by his murderous side, his skin turns dark, his irides becomes a pale yellow colour while his sclerae turns black, and he grows various weapons and appendages to suit his battle combat situation, as well as having a deranged look.


Jūgo is considered to be a powerful ninja as Sasuke took him to help him get his revenge on Itachi. Jūgo also has the ability to understand and communicate with birds. [1]

However, Sasuke manages to restrain them but accidently drops his pants, resulting in him attacking his team for witnessing his embarrassment.
