First Appearance:

Second Chunin Exam Saga

Onoki is the Third Tsuchikage of Iwagakure, the father of Biwa and Katsuku, the step-father of Kyochi Namikaze, and Kitsuchi, the husband of Mirotaki Namikaze, and the grandfather of Kurotsuchi, Uriwami, and Onami.


Ōnoki is an old man with a triangular beard and a moustache with angular corners. He has a big red nose and thick rectangular-shaped eyebrows. The top of his head is completely bald, although, he has some white hair at the back and sides of his head which faintly resemble a chonmage style hair cut, the back of which is tied with a yellow ribbon into a topknot. Ōnoki wears a green and yellow coat with a red collar. Underneath he wears an Iwagakure flak jacket.


As a young man, Onoki was a student to the Second Tsuchikage, Mu who taught him how to use the Particle Style jutsu. In his later teens, Onoki meets his future wife, Mitrotaki, as the first jinchuriki of the Seven-Tailed Dragonfly, and during the near end of the First Great Ninja War, when Onoki protected her from an ambush of ten Hollows, she became angry at the Hollows, and transform into her Five-Tails Chakra Form, killing the Hollows. After the war ended, Onoki ask Mirotaki's hand in marriage, and they got married after he was made the Third Tsuchikage. At the age of 24, when the Second Great Ninja War was in the middle of its end, a nine month pregnant Mirotaki was ready to have their twin baby daughters. And then eight years later, Mirotaki gave birth to a baby boy name Katsuku, which Onoki was proud to have, and accidently fell to the ground, survived it, but broke his back.

Later in life, he himself would become teacher to Deidara. Though he often implied that Deidara's ideologies and fighting style annoyed him, he was still proud of him. At some time in the past, Ōnoki fought with Madara Uchiha, the only living Kage to do so. His knowledge of Madara's power made him wary of him, and was thus surprised that the latter would choose to carry out his designs behind the shadows through the Akatsuki. Probably unaware of Madara's major role as the Akatsuki's founder, he hired the former mercenary group many times for their services in the past, which he rationalised by his concern over Kumogakure's unwavering militarisation. He has also apparently known and dealt with A, the Fourth Raikage, since the latter was young.
