Akimichi Clan
Akimichi
Data
Type: Clan
Affiliation: Konoha
Leader: Chouji Akimichi

One of the four noble clans of Konoha, the Akimichi Clan has a recorded history of sixteen generations of clan heads by the time of the Fourth Great Shinobi War. They have close ties with the Nara and Yamanaka Clans dating back at least all sixteen generations. They can give and take tremendous amounts of damage and utilize unique jutsu making use of the large amounts of food they consume. Because of the role food plays in their abilities, all shinobi members of the clan wear the kanji for "food" on the front of their uniform, be it a shirt or armor plate.

History

The Akimichi Clan vastly predates the Hidden village system, with a known history dating back approximately three hundred to four hundred years or more. During much of that history, they have worked with the Nara and Yamanaka Clans. The Sarutobi Clan aids in that unity with a tradition involving each new generation of clan heads. When the Senju and Uchiha Clans founded Konoha, the Akimichi were among the ninja clans that settled in the village prior to the First Great Shinobi War.

Bloodlines and Jutsu

Distinguishing Features

Members of the Akimichi Clan are almost always larger than their fellow ninja, and are some times insulted as "fat" because of this fact. In addition, members of the clan have tattoos on their cheeks but unlike the Inuzuka Clan, the tattoo design is not a standard design. Many Akimichi tend to have longer hair either left hanging down or in top knots.

Upon becoming Chunin, Akimichi shinobi begin wearing armor. The standard design has an undersuit that a torso armor plate goes over. Some Akimichi add attached armor sections for the upper arms and legs to the undersuit. In addition, all Akimichi shinobi wear the kanji for "food" on their chest, either on a shirt (if they don't have armor) or on their torso armor plate.

Akimichi frequently use Bo staves in combination with their clan style.
