Ebisu (エビス, Ebisu) is one of the supporting characters in Naruto universe. He is a tokubetsu jōnin from Konohagakure who specialises in the private training of elite ninja, as stated by Kakashi Hatake. He is also the leader of Team Ebisu, which consists of Konohamaru Sarutobi, Udon, and Moegi.
Ebisu has been portrayed as having dark hair and brown eyes and is never seen without his trademark sunglasses. Usually he is seen in the standard Konoha shinobi outfit, albeit without the flak jacket. He also wears his forehead protector like a bandanna. When deployed on missions, or if the situation calls for it he will don the flak jacket as part of his outfit.
During his time in the Academy, Ebisu wore his hair swept to the sides of his face and wore a dark suit along with his signature glasses with a thin, brown shawl of sorts around his shoulders with the two ends tied. When he achieved the rank of chūnin, he discarded the shawl, donned the bandanna-like forehead protector as well as a flak jacket.
Ebisu is portrayed as a stern and "by-the-book" type of person. Initially, he expressed hatred for Naruto Uzumaki, and believed he was nothing but a worthless nuisance and mocked his dream of becoming Hokage as he believes that only people of high lineage could amount to anything. Upon seeing what Naruto had done for Konohamaru his perspective changed drastically, and later the village during Pain's assault on it, he chose not to surrender Naruto's location and would rather be killed. He is also rather attached to his pupils, and has shown immense pride in them, such as when Konohamaru performed the Rasengan on Pain while rescuing Ebisu from the dangerous missing-nin.
While being rather uptight, he has shown a true dedication to his village and students. Also, although he tries to be very professional, he has displayed some perverted traits, as shown from how he reacted to Naruto's pervert tactics. He has also been described by Naruto as a "closet pervert". Ebisu has a tendency to look into female bath houses. When perturbed, Ebisu often pushes his sunglasses up his nose.
