Kankuro (カンクロウ Kankurō) is the middle of the three sand siblings. For the first half of the series, he is frequently at odds with Gaara, though he tends to hold his tongue for fear of being killed.[ch. 36] In Part II, once Gaara begins to reveal his dreams and motivations to Kankuro, Kankuro becomes very protective of Gaara; he lashes out at anyone who speaks poorly of Gaara and when Gaara is kidnapped, he readily risks his life to save him.[ch. 249] Kankuro is a talented puppeteer, normally using his bladed attack puppet Crow (烏 Karasu) and trapping puppet Black Ant (黒蟻 Kuroari) in combination attacks. He also possesses the large puppet Salamander (山椒魚 Sanshōuo) that provides him with combination defense and offense.
