|Japanese name:||不知火 楓|
Kaede often "breaks the fourth wall" to, represent the viewer as the new person into the world of Shinobu and the ninja. As a consequence she is the most aware that she is in an anime, frequently remarking, "What was that scene about??" and in the first episode saying, "It's only episode 1, I don't want to die yet!" She is often seen making remarks about Onsokumaru and the male ninja, such as "That does not make sense." and "You are talking rubbish again!".
