Zabuza Momochi (桃地再不斬, Momochi Zabuza), given the moniker Demon of the Hidden Mist (霧隠れの鬼人, Kirigakure no Kijin), was a missing-nin from Kirigakure's Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist.
Why He Rocks
- He has one of the coolest designs in the entire Naruto series. Both of his main outfits make him look tough and badass, and not to mention his huge sword looks really cool.
- His relationship with Haku was heartwarming, even if he was just using him as a tool. He still cared for Haku and took care of him when he was a small child.
- He has some of the coolest fight scenes in the Naruto series. One of which is his first fight against Kakashi, where he almost beat him. That fight also showed that Naruto isn't a loser and helped Naruto's relationship with Sasuke, as Naruto teamed up with the Uchiha kid to defeat him.
- He managed to almost beat Kakashi, who was one of the strongest characters shown at the time.
- He was extremely skilled even at a young age, as he managed to kill over 100 students at his academy when he was just a kid.
- Despite him dying early on in the show, he is one of many people to have a great influence on Naruto's life, and helped him grow up to become a strong ninja.
- After Naruto's speech and him seeing Haku sacrifice himself to save him, Zabuza turned good and teamed up with Naruto, Kakashi, Tazuna, Inari and the land of waves villagers to defeat Gato and save the bridge and the land of waves.
- His death scene is extremely heartbreaking, as he wished to be beside his friend Haku during his last moments.
- Despite him not appearing much in Shippuden, he was revived by Kabuto during the war (with an epic rematch against Kakashi) and he made a small cameo in a filler episode later on.
