In the vast universe of Naruto, amidst the countless legendary ninjas and their awe-inspiring abilities, two individuals have captivated fans like no others.
With their unbreakable bond and unwavering loyalty, Kotetsu Hagane and Izumo Kamizuki have captured the hearts of every Naruto fan.
Wait, you guys don’t remember these two enigmas from Naruto? They are Those 2 Guys From Naruto.
In this article, we delve deep into the captivating journey of those two guys from Naruto and explore how they have left an indelible mark on the series and its fervent fanbase.
Who are Those Two Guys From Naruto?
First, it’s not very often that random ordinary soldiers with almost no screen time leave such a significant impression on the audience as Kotetsu and Izumo do.
They have become a meme in the Naruto community, where almost nobody knows their name. But they have one of the strongest friendship bonds we have seen in the Naruto series.
These two have become one of the biggest memes in the Naruto community, even when they have such a short screen time and aren’t very strong. Even then, they stand above the rest of the Chunin, who are not part of the main cast.
These two enigmas are:
- Kotetsu Hagane
- Izumo Kamizuki
Let’s take a look at both of these characters.
Kotetsu Hagane is a chunin who first debuted in the manga in chapter 36 and the anime in episode 3.
His appearance is unusual since he has a little bandage-like cloth covering his nose and face. But he is an exceptional chunin who is not from the main cast alongside his partner Izumo Kamizuki.
He is one of the assistants in the Chunin exam alongside Izumi, and not only that, but he was also the assistant of Tsunade Senju after she became the 5th Hokage.
He is an inquisitive person but somewhat carefree of the 2. He completely trusts his partner Izumo, whom he has known for ages, and rushes into battle knowing Izumo has his back.
In the 2nd Naruto popularity poll, he was ranked 27th; in the 7th poll, he was ranked 38th.
He was also a part of the 20 Platoon, which had 20 squads of 4-man platoons, which were ordered by the 5th Hokage Tsunade to hunt down the Akatsuki.
His other team members were Asuma Sarutobi. Shikamaru Nara and Izumo Kamizuki. He was also a part of the First Division under the leadership of Darui during the Fourth Great Ninja War.
Kotetsu Hagane is a close-range fighter who uses a strange mace-like weapon, the Cudgel, that somewhat resembles some part of the 3 Tails but is unrelated.
He also has two blades which he uses to fight alongside Izumo, and they can attach a chain to it as well to restrain opponents.
The biggest fight of Kotetsu from those two guys from Naruto was against Kakuzu from the Akatsuki. Even though he was not a match for him at all, he could still show off his skills in that fight.
Izumo Kamizuki is a chunin who first made his debut in the manga in chapter 36 and the anime in episode 3.
Appearance-wise, he looks more normal and covers his left eye with his hair. He is also an excellent Chunin, just like his partner Kotetsu.
Just like his partner Kotetsu, he is also one of the Chunin exam’s assistants and Tsunade Senju’s assistant after she became the 5th Hokage after the 3rd Hokage’s death.
Unlike Kotetsu, who dives into battle head first, Izumo is way more calculating and relies on data to win fights and cover Kotetsu’s back. He is always looking at data and developing plans to stay one step ahead in battle.
In the 2nd Naruto popularity poll, he was ranked 34th, and in the 7th poll, he was ranked 41st.
He was also part of the 20 Platoon 4-man squad alongside Kotetsu Hagane, Asuma Sarutobi, and Shikamaru Nara, also in the First Division.
He relies more on his brain and is very calculating.
He is proficient at using water release, by which he covers the ground in a highly viscous liquid, allowing him to restrict his enemies from freely moving. Then he tag teams his opponents with Kotetsu.
He also showcased all his skills against Kakuzu.

Both of them share a strong bond of friendship and camaraderie. They’ve been partners since childhood.
Kotetsu is the more carefree one, and Izumo is the more careful and analytical of the 2.
That’s why Kotetsu dives head first into battle because he trusts his back to Izumo, who has got him covered. They have outstanding teamwork, as seen in the fight against Kakuzu. Also, their love for the village is very extreme as well.
Role In The Story
Even though both of them don’t have a lot of screen time, they do play a small role here and there.
- During the chunin exam, both of them disguise themselves as candidates to see the level at which this year’s candidates are.
- They were also the invigilators who were checking for the participants to cheat.
- During the Akatsuki Suppression Mission, they both fight Kakuzu.
- During the Fourth Great Ninja War, they have a rematch against Kakuzu.
In conclusion, those two guys from Naruto are one of the most iconic duos in Naruto, at least looking meme-wise.
No other show’s characters have gained this kind of popularity for this reason; these two guys from Naruto are in a league of their own.
Even after Naruto has ended for over seven years, these two guys from Naruto still live in our hearts.
