Don't underestimate my puppets!
~ Kankuro

Kankuro is an antagonist-turned-supporting character in the Naruto anime and manga series and the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime and manga series. He is the second eldest of the three Sand Siblings and a talented puppet user. He is also a guardian with his older sister, Temari, to protect their younger brother Gaara the new Kazekage. He is known as the only ninja who ever used face paint in Naruto.

He is voiced by Yasuyuki Kase in the Japanese version of the anime, who also voiced Vision from Marvel Cinematic Universe. And by the late Michael Lindsay and Doug Erholtz (same voiced Asuma Sarutobi) in the English version of the anime.

Plot

He uses his three puppets in combat that are named Black Ant, Salamander, and Crow. He was responsible for the death of Sakon/Ukon of the Sound Four.  

After Sasori died, Kankuro acquired the deceased Akatsuki's puppet body into his use as his new favorite puppet.
