Shōgetsu Hōzuki (鬼灯詛月 Hōzuki Shōgetsu) is the former Head of the Hōzuki clan, the older brother of Mētsuki Hōzuki. A prodigy of his own scale, Shōgetsu is an acclaimed genius of advancing the clan's hiden with an unforeseen style. It led him to reach the covert ranks of Kiri's most brutal under the alias of "Kyūketsuki" (吸血鬼, Vampire), and assured the protection of the village's secrets. His true loyalty, however, lies with his little sister that he would sacrifice his life for. Because when the elders of the clan voted to arrange a political marriage for Mētsuki, refusing to listen to his disapproval, Shōgetsu took faith in his own hands.
It's later revealed that the Sixth Mizukage, Chōjūrō, had sent an unit after him to capture him. He has been imprisoned in the deepest and most secretive underground prison of Kirigakure, later transported back to the Hōzuki Castle. The Mizukage had him tortured and worse to retrieve exclusive information about the Hōzuki clan and other intel that the former clan leader had gathered about others.

- The first part of his name uses the kanji 詛 (cursed), which is taken from norou (のろう) meaning to put a curse on. Following the clan's tradition, his full name would roughly translate to: "a demon lantern cursed by the moon".
