|First Appearance||Tenchu: Fatal Shadows|
Jyuzou (黒塗りの重蔵 Kuronuri no Jūzō?) was the supreme leader of the Kuroya, a group of evil ninja and is responsible for the destruction of his hometown, Hagakure village.
He was actually next in line to become the next leader of the Hagakure, but refused to live by the rules set before him. Jyuzou's weapon is a blade concealed within a parasol. He had been Rin's fiance before he betrayed the Hagakure. Rin ultimately tracked him down and confronted him for his transgressions, about which he showed no remorse. He asked Rin to stand by his side as his mate, but the young kunoichi was thoroughly disgusted by him and refused. The two proceeded to fight a vicious duel. Jyuzou proved to be a formidable opponent, but was ultimately slain by Rin.
Jyuzou was a skilled swordfighter due to his uncommon technique with the parasol.
