Taiki (待機, Taiki, Literally meaning: Alert Squad)
|Appears in||Anime, Manga|
Taiki (たいき) is a elite team of bodyguards that protect the Hyōkage of Suishōgakure. They posses a variety of abilities and are from several different villages, which allows for their abilities to be greatly augmented.
Taiki is the team comprised of the elite bodyguards of the Hyōkage, Kameyō, as well as her daughter, Kei. Team members typically possess different abilities and come from different villages, which allows for their abilities to be greatly augmented, but there are some cases in which some members come from the same village or possess the same abilities, such as in the case of Shizu Ishii and her sister, Mai Ishii. Members of the squad posses high level powers, capable of being of Kage-level and their power is said to rival that of the Kage, which may be a reason they arrive after the Kage have been defeated by the revived Madara Uchiha.
Members of the team are partnered with another member who can augment their abilities, perhaps in terms of releases, intelligence, or even personality.
- Taiki means "alert" or to "stand-by"
(Kameyō about Taiki to Madara Uchiha) "This team I speak of is comprised of the most elite of shinobi, the most deadly of shinobi. They are descendants of some of the greatest shinobi to live! Do not underestimate them, or you will be killed!"
