Tayuya (多由也) is a kunoichi of Orochimaru's Sound Four. Personality Tayuya is foul-mouthed towards most people, especially Jirobo, calling him "fatty", as he criticized her over it. She didn't think much of Shikamaru Nara as a leader, but as a weak, useless rat, who ran away when she used her Doki to attack him. Of the Sound Four, Tayuya was the only member to show a sense of morality, as she berated Shikamaru for sacrificing his teammates to bring back one person who voluntarily left. Involvement in Plot
