Lord Orochimaru, or rather Orochimaru, now do you see? I'm more than a mere puppet.
~ Dosu Kinuta

Dosu Kinuta (in Japanese: ドス・キヌタ, Dosu Kinuta) is a minor antagonist in Naruto. He is a skilled ninja from the Hidden Sound Village.

He was voiced by Daisuke Egawa in the Japanese version of the anime, and by John DeMita in the English dubbed version.

History

He, along with Zaku Abumi and Kin Tsuchi were allegedly ordered by Orochimaru to kill Sasuke Uchiha during the Chūnin Exams, but he soon realized that he was just being used to test Sasuke's abilities.

Soon after, Dosu decides that the best way to ruin Orochimaru's plan is to face Sasuke in the Exams and kill him; to ensure Sasuke makes it to the finals, he tries to assassinate his upcoming opponent, Gaara, in the night. However, Dosu is ultimately unsuccessful; Gaara transforms into Shukaku and kills him.

Powers and Abilities

  • Melody Arm - a gauntlet with holes drilled into it that amplifies sound, attacking the inner ear and causing debilitating effects. He easily defeats opponents such as Rock Lee and Choji with it, and can even throw Kabuto, a Jonin-level opponent, off-balance with it.
  • Super Senses (Hearing) - Dosu's hearing is resilient enough to withstand point-blank Melody Arm blasts, but is also sensitive enough to detect the differences between pencil scratches and use that to figure out what someone is writing.
  • Stealth - Though not fully demonstrated in the series, Dosu is able to successfully sneak up on Gaara; note that Gaara is apparently as stealthy as Kakashi Hatake.
  • Perception and Intellect - He was able to instantly spot a disguised trap set by Sakura Haruno, and was the only member of the Sound Genin who was able to fully deduce Orochimaru's plans.
