Kiba is a member of Konoha's Inuzuka clan who are characterized by their highly symbiotic relationships with their dog companions. His name “Kiba” means fang and it reflects his wild appearance. Kiba is always seen with his young dog, Akamaru, who often rides on his head or is carried in the front of his jacket. Kiba is highly devoted to Akamaru and is the only one who can understand his barks. In part II, Akamaru has grown enormously and is large enough for Kiba to ride on.
In combat, Kiba is a close ranged brawler and uses many techniques aimed at inflicting raw physical damage quickly. Akamaru often fights by his side and can even transform into Kiba’s form to confuse the enemy. Outside of combat, Kiba is also a valuable tracking expert. By focusing chakra to his nose, he can magnify his sense of smell a thousand times.Kakashi has stated that Kiba's tracking skills even outrank his own Nin Dogs.
