Darui is a Jonin-level ninja of Kumogakure, who currently functions as a bodyguard and escort to the Fourth Raikage at the Kage summit, along with his fellow jonin C. He and C were chosen to escort the Fourth Raikage to the Five Kage Summit in the Land of Iron. Darui is portrayed as easy-going and mellow; when compared to the Fourth Raikage's over-the-top exit through a window, (destroying a wall along with it), he tells C that he'll just use the door. Whilst having a more laid-back demeanor compared to his leader, Darui isn't lazy, leaping to the Raikage's defense when the bodyguards of the other Kage overreact to the Raikage's reactions. Darui has a dark skin tone, a slightly bulbous nose, a lazy look in his eyes and white hair in a shaggy hair style. He also appears to be quite tall in stature. Darui has so far only been seen in the sleeveless uniform and one-strap-over-one-shoulder Flak Jacket of a Kumogakure Jonin. As a sword-user, Darui wields a large, cleaver-like blade, which is seen carried on his back during the Kage summit, although he doesn't seem to carry it around at his home village.

When the Fourth Raikage smashed the table and the bodyguards moved to protect their respective Kage, Darui showed a long and fairly broad sword that seems a little particular from others swords as it folds in two to be sheathed and unfolds when in use. He has shown quite some skills in kenjutsu, as he was able to clash with Suigetsu Hozuki's (albeit broken) Decapitating Carving Knife, and can charge his broad sword with electricity that can stay charged even when he isn't making contact with it.

Elemental Techniques
Darui has also shown to be proficient with Water Release and Lightning Release techniques, possibly being able to use them both simultaneously. Darui is shown using what is presumably a Kekkei Genkai known as Storm Release, which possibly combines both Lightning and Water chakra to create beams of light that can be guided like missiles and cause powerful explosions.
Like Killer Bee, Darui is also proficient with the use of "Chakra Flow" with ballistic weapons; he has been seen using a Lightning-empowered shuriken to slice through a metal blade in-order to save Killer Bee from Kisame Hoshigaki's attempt to cut off Killer Bee's legs.
