Shinzo Hattori (ハットリ シンゾウ or 服部 心蔵 Hattori Shinzou), aka Shin-chan, is Kanzo Hattori's younger brother. A good point to note in the show is that while Kanzo is referred to as simply "Hattori", Shinzo is called by his first name. He uses weapons made out of wood unlike Hattori and Kemumaki, who use weapons out of steel but later in the series he started to use weapons of steel. Shinzo has a habit of crying really loudly; but he has a kind heart and is determined to become a strong ninja like his big bro. He has several powers to immobilise rivals like biting their heads or controlling his crying. He and Shishimaru are inseparable.

Physical appearance Edit

Shinzou is plump, has fair skin and rosy cheeks. He usually wears red robes, a white belt and a red loincloth under his trousers.


Shinzo tricks Hattori into giving him things, annoyingly cries really loudly and disturbs people such as in 'Let's go to the movies', 'Kenichi flies in the sky' and such episodes. However, he's a loyal and devoted brother to Hattori and has a good heart and great compassion. Although he was not too good at the beginning, he has improved and is determined to become a strong ninja.

Relationships Edit

Hattori Edit

Shinzou looks up to his brother Hattori. He is not as serious as his older brother, but mostly obeys him.

Shishimaru Edit

Shinzou and Shishimaru are inseparable. They often play together and seldom fight.

Kenichi and Yumiko Edit

Kenichi does mistreat Shinzou sometimes, but still cares for him. Yumiko is one of his closest friends, and she often makes him cake and other treats.

Kemumaki Edit

Shinzou despises Kemumaki just as much as Hattori does. In "A new ninja technique", he, along with Shishimaru and Kenichi were combatants in the duel between Hattori and Kemumaki. However, Kemumaki did teach Shinzou how to walk on water.

The Mitsubas Edit

Shinzou is very close to Mr. and Mrs. Mitsuba, who care for Shinzou just like the way they care for Kenichi.
