The full Akatsuki squad

Akatsuki (暁; Literally meaning "Dawn" or "Daybreak") is an organisation with a main goal to collect all of the tailed beasts for their plan of world domination.


The organisation is widespread, spanning several countries with agents in various places. When one team finds a tailed beast and has to begin the job of sealing the beast, they have hidden hideouts with many traps ready, to do the three-day long technique. Akatsuki is a criminal organisation comprised of S-rank missing-nin and is the most wanted group in all of the shinobi world. Akatsuki at any given time is composed of no more than ten primary members, all of whom were S-rank criminals of their own respective villages. Team members must function very well, or at least well enough to accomplish their tasks, even though some may have mutual problems with each other.
