Sasori from Naruto

Sasori (voiced in Japanese by Takahiro Sakurai and in English by Johnny Yong Bosch) is part of the main group of antagonists in the latter half of the Naruto series.

He is a member of the Akatsuki, and his specialty is puppetry, up to the point where he himself has a puppet body. His partner in the Akatsuki is Deidara, the explosives expert.

Sasori (in this form) has shaggy, short red hair and brown eyes. He wears the same Akatsuki cloak as the others, but instead of wearing the same mesh shirt, because of his puppet body he goes without it. His torso is segmented, with a canister in the right side of his chest, and an open hole in the center where he stores a poisoned corded tail, and he has bladed metal wings seated low on his back. For the rest of his outfit, he wears similar pants to the others but with a white waistband across the midsection, and then the same white spats over his ninja sandals. His nails are painted a dark teal color and he wears a deep blueish purple ring with the Kanji ‘gyoku’ on it.

Deidara from Naruto

Deidara (voiced in Japanese by Katsuhiko Kawamoto and in English by Roger Craig Smith) is part of the main group of antagonists in the latter half of the Naruto franchise.

He is the youngest member of the Akatsuki, and specializes in clay creations and explosives, in combination. Throughout his involvement with the Akatsuki, he was partnered with Sasori, and later on, Tobi.

Deidara has long, golden hair, worn partially up in a very high ponytail, with the bangs parted heavily over one side, draping all the way down to his chin, over his missing-nin designated slashed Iwagakure headband. His visible eye is a light blue, and the other one is often covered by (in addition to his hair) a long-range scope. He wears the standard Akatsuki cloak, as well as a dark tank-top over a mesh one, elastic cuffed capris in the same shade, white spat wrapped ninja sandals, and a blue-ish teal ring with the kanji ‘sho’. Around his waist he wears pouches filled with clay that he uses with the mouths on his hands and chest, and the look is finished off with black nail polish on his fingers and toes.

Itachi has long black hair, worn down in the front in long side-draped bangs, and his eyes, with deep set bags underneath them, are a dark greyish black, though more often he’s shown using the Sharingan, turning his eyes red. He wears a slashed version of the Konoha headband, signifying his status as missing nin, as well as a metal circled necklace, blackish purple nailpolish, and a ring like the rest of the Akatsuki, with his being red with the kanji ‘shu’. His under layer is typical ninja wear like the majority of the rest of the cast, with a slightly meshed dark top with elasticized matching capri pants, as well as typical ninja sandals with white spats on top. He wears an Akatsuki cloak over top of all of this.
