He is father of Chji Akimichi and former teammate of Shikaku Nara and Inoichi Yamanaka. Together they were the previous InoShikaCh trio. During the NineTails039 Attack on Konoha Chza and his teammates assisted in the village039s defense. A few years later Chza learned that Chji was treated as an outcast because of his weight and the belief that Akimichi were useless ninja. Chza told him that one day he would have true friends that would realize that wasn039t the true Chji. Chza is the head of the Akimichi clan and was part of the first quotInoShikaCh Trioquot alongside Shikaku Nara and Inoichi Yamanaka his name being the Ch part of the group name. He is a gentle and caring man with seemingly great wisdom and understanding of the world and has deep love for his son Chji. Like the rest of his clan he has a large appetite and is prone to eat everything on an entire page on the menu. Like his son and the rest of his clan Chza uses the special technique that allows him to change calories into chakra. As the leader of his clan it is highly logical that he is skilled in all of his clan039s secret techniques. He has been seen using the MultiSize Technique the Human Bullet Tank2 and the Partial MultiSize Technique which all revolve around the clan039s special ability to increase the size of their various body parts. He is also skilled at using a staff in combat which seems to also grow when he uses the MultiSize Technique.
