Nikkai Ryuuji (竜司 日海, Ryuuji Nikkai) is a jounin-level shinobi of Sunagakure who hails from the Ryuuji Clan. 



Nikkai can best be described as outgoing and impetuous. He has an easy time expressing his opinions, and enjoys flaunting his skills, especially during his days as a genin. Despite being a shinobi, Nikkai starts off as rather unfocused, and enjoys goofing around and messing with his friends, but can also be a bit dense at times.

Later, Nikkai's naive enthusiasm falls away after multiple close encounters with enemies. He never becomes more serious, though to his frustration, he still has some difficulty comprehending new developments as they appear. Nikkai also comes to terms with his own limits, disliking his lack of power, but eager to prove his worth. Through it all, Nikkai remains an optimistic character, consistently caring for the well-being of others, and willing to help in any way he can.

The Last: Naruto the MovieEdit

Main article: The Last: Naruto the Movie Kurei was seen with the Sand Siblings defending their village from the falling meteors. She was last seen at Naruto and Hinata's wedding with Gaara as her date.

Epilogue Edit

After the Kage meeting and returning home, Kurei realized she wasn't feeling quite right. Gaara carefully picked her up and hot footed it to the hospital, both hoping for the best yet fearing for the worst. Family and friends gather in a waiting area and begin to exchange stories. There is a cry from the room Kurei and Gaara are in which startles those gathered. Toge, Kurei's mother, announces that Kurei is, in fact, pregnant. After everyone calms down some Toge then shocks the crowed with the news that Gaara and Kurei are expecting triplets.


  • Nikkai was named after Hon'inbō Sansa,one of the strongest Japanese Goplayers of the Edo period. His  dharma name was Nikkai (日海).


  • (to Gaara about Temari and Kankuro) "They are as much my family as they are yours, now. Is that alright?"
  • (to Kankuro to his inquiery of the Mizugame Ryodan) "As I understand it, you can not stand a day without adventure. I suppose that is why you think it will be fun to come along with us. Heh, we shall see how that pans out for you when it is all said and done."
  • (to Dr. Yamawaki - in hospital) "I hate this place. It is cold and bland and I miss having my own room. I suppose you are okay though, but I hear what the other doctors say. I know I will...a-am I going to die?"
  • (to herself) "Oh? So it is going to be one of those days. Great."
  • (to Hin about Gaara) "Such a beautiful shade of blue, his eyes. Yet, they're so lonely, even surrounded by people as he is..."
  • (to Temari about Gaara) "It is far simpler than even that, Temari. It is easy and comfortable to be with him. He demands little of me and I of him. Yet, we both fulfill a role to the other we did not even realize we so desperately needed. I love him and that is as 'stupid simple' as it gets. Speaking of, how is it going with Shikamaru, hm?"
  • (to Dr. Yamawaki - in hospital) "You gave me the strength to live on. None of that sappy stuff about prevailing love and junk. You were here. You yelled at me, teased me, berated me, but you stayed here. Always at my side. You never left me alone even when I tried to push you away. Dr. Yamawaki, you became my anchor simple because you exist as something I have never had and will never be able to name."
  • (to the vulgar Renmaru) "I will melt that tongue right out of your head if you insist on using it further."
  • (to Gaara) "It really does make you think, hu? How short life truly is, how fragile. Even more, it makes you realize you can not spend all your time being afraid of what might happen and forget to take the chances on what could happen."
  • (To Gaara before his swearing in as Kazekage) "Hm, see, this is where we disagree. To me, Gaara is Gaara. You are who you are right now, right at this second. Not who you were when you were five or twelve. Just right now, the man standing right here, that is who you are to me."
