Squad 8 is one of Hikagakure's shinobi squads. The squad was formed under command of Yaso Pon'Biki and was previously lead by the Chūnin Kazuma Shiraishi. The Genin in the squad were Kokoro Resu, Yaku Saru and Hitake Kobayashi. After Hitake's noble sacrifice, his position was filled in by Katsuo Tsubasa. However, this line up was short lived and the various members of the squad were reassigned after the death of the squads leading figure, Kazuma. As of currently, Squad 8 remains inactive and has yet to be re-organized.
