Sasuke Sarutobi (猿飛佐助, Sarutobi Sasuke) is a member of the Koga Ninja, and head of Sanada's ninja squad. His ability to manipulate animals is powerful, and he holds command over horned owls, weasels, and many other creatures of the forest. He is Saizo's most prominent rival.
Sasuke is a very timid ninja, as every time Yukimura praises him for something, he either says he is not worthy of such praise and/or run away. His docile personality leads him to becoming completely submissive towards Yukimura to the point that he is willing to defend Sanada's land to the death under his orders. He's seen to be rather sensitive as he tearfully cried after he learned of the betrayal of a teammate. He also has trouble relating to humans, yet in contrast, he is very close to animals and is usually seen holding one.
His loyalty towards Yukimura is strong and unwavering, and he takes pride in being a warrior and will not forgive anyone who soils Sanada's name. He hates Iga Ninja (as he even refuses to accept help from Ana once), more notably Saizo Kirigakure . But in the same time he acknowledges Saizo as a strong ninja and trusts him.
He also has romantic feelings for Isanami as he would blush around her.
Sasuke is a young man of average height with a boyish face. He has a slender build with soft tan skin lacking scars, body or facial hair and messy short orange hair and yellowish orange eyes.
He wears a long, vest-like in the front, green coat that reaches his knees. The coat has long sleeves that are green for the most of it and black at the end. The sleeves are cut and attached by a zigzag white thread by the shoulder part. The coat has two white threads in the chest part that Sasuke ties into a ribbon. Underneath the coat, he wears a v-neck white shirt. He also wears loose shorts that reach his calves.They are green for the majority while black at the end. He wears a braided white belt. And he also wears black socks and black sandals.
PlotEditSasuke appears before Saizo and Isanami, and Saizo and Sasuke start a battle, clearly expressing their hate for one another. However, Isanami stops them, demanding that she see someone called Yukimura Sanada. Later, he appears with Yukimura when Saizo and Isanami are attacked by a group of ninja, which Yukimura used them both as bait to lure them out. Sasuke is seen looking in amazement at Isanami's power and looks on as Saizo and Isanami argue about him not coming along with her. They force him to stay with her soon after and he brings breakfast for Saizo the next morning. However, a group of Koga ninja attack Saizo, causing his breakfast to spill. Sasuke takes Isanami to have breakfast with him, while Saizo stays by himself in dismay.
- Knives: His main weapon are two knives.
- Ninja Tools: Throwing knives, paralysis herbs.
- Animal manipulation: He is able to command at least some of animals living in the forest: owls, wolves and weasels.
- Paralysis Herbs: He has the ability to summon leaves that can paralyse an opponent upon touch.
While his age is not specified like the other characters he is most likely a teenage boy. It can be deduced that he is at most the same age as his Iga rival Saizo(19), since Anastasia (22) judged him inexperienced enough, to still be an amateur in episode 9 while Okatsu in episode 2 said he was still a young boy. Saizo in comparison is not perceived as a timid youth/lad like Sasuke but as a matured man more experienced in life, who can lead the Braves.
