    As I was reading a certain fanfic where Kisame and Itachi were hungry and looking for a place they could buy food, a sudden thought appeared in my head.

    Where do Akatsuki take money from? I mean, even badass villains like them need food and lodging and there's no way every time they go to a hotel or a restaurant one of them to place a sharp pointy thing at the throat of the owner and demand food and lodgings...

    Maybe one of them is rich or something. I mean, Sasori, for example, took out a nation. Surely he took all the money from the nation when he defeated it. And its been shown that he has followers. Maybe they fund him.

    They are powerful ninja. Powerful ninja know powerful genjutsu and mind control techniques. They can do anything they want around normal people and get away with it.

    That's Hilary Duff? Change it for that reason alone. I'll even give you a good pic to get an avatar from:



    On topic: They probably get it from the Aburame clan vaults. With Shino's dad being the leader and all I mean.

    Akatsuki Leader: Due to our budget running a tad low this month, I've taken the step of signing contracts for you all.

    Unnamed Akatsuki #1: You don't mean...

    Akatsuki Leader: Yes. Advertising.

    All Akatsuki: (groan)

    (Some time later, in the world of Tsuki-yomi...)

    Itachi: Kakashi-san, for the next 72 hours I will stab you with these katanas.

    Kakashi: Ugh! Aargh! Aaaiie! (repeats for hours)

    Itachi: (grimaces) And now it's time for a little break.

    Kakashi: B-break?

    Itachi: Sorry. Even I find this to be too cruel.

    (The Mentos theme starts playing)

    Singers: Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, the ooone!

    Kakashi: NOOOOOOOOO!!!

    (Meanwhile...)

    Deidara: And now, watch your village destroyed by my ultimate work of art!

    (A horrified Gaara watches as Deidara's doll #18 explodes, leaving behind the following message in the sky...)

    EAT AT JOES!

    Deidara: I feel so dirty.

    (Elsewhere...)

    Sasori: And now I'll show you my true form!

    (Sasori whips off his cloak to reveal his true puppet body... covered head to toe with endorsement stickers.)

    (And in the Grass Country...)

    Tobi: Zetsu-san! Zetsu-san! How many licks DOES it take to get to the center of a Tootsie-Roll Pop?

    Zetsu: (light side) Let's find out. (licks pop) One! Two! Three! (dark side) The heck with this! (crunches down on the whole thing) Looks like three, Tobi.

    Tobi: Awwww.

    Itachi killed his clan so he could afford all of Akatsukis expenses...We all know that Uchihas are filthy Rich.

    We also know that Kisame used his smexyness to marry the Daughter of a Rich wealthy man, like Gatou, and he too helps Akatsuki with the expenses.

    then we ?Have Sasori, where do you think he bought the materials to make all those puppets...Well of course he bought them, and dont think they are cheap...Making just 1 Puppet can cost up to 1200 Dolars, and knowing his Jutsu of 100 Puppets we pretty much kow hes getting money from somewhere.
    Plus, now that hes dead, Deidara probably inheritred his money.

    We know this too, it says so in the Databook.

    Kisame pays for Water service.
    Deidara pays for the Electricity bills.
    Itachi pays for the other expenses, Laser-Eye Surgerys, shoes, Cars, T.V etc.
    Zetzu pays the Dude that cares for the plants.
    Sasori paid the rent for the cave, thats why he was always pissed, the rent for that cave is alot...
    Leader provides the new Jutsus, but do you think the Jutsu come out of his ass? Of course not, he has to pay for EVERY new Jutsu he teaches his underlings...It goes as follows:
    D Class: $34 each.
    C Class: $69 each.
    B Class: $99.99 each.
    A Class: $999.99 each.
    S Rank: $1999.99 each.
    Tax not Included.

    And remember that doesnt get Crap from Akatsuki, and all the Jutsus are given out free, but Leader said...."hmmmm, Ill charge all who have a Bloodline...At least that way I wont declare bankrupcy yet."
    And knowing Itachi had one, he charged extra for Dojutsu...And for every new Jutsu, the one paying would be Itachi for at least 40%.

    Now think about it, Itachi joined an killed his clan 6 months later, because he was out of money. Akatsuki is a priviledge.
    And we know that Akatsuki mostly buys A and S Rank Jutsus, so imagine Itachis bank account...Not so Good being in Akatsuki now huh!!

    But then he found out why it was costing him so much....OROCHIMARU!!!

    Oro bought all type of Jutsus, especially Kinjutsus, who have higher taxes...Plus all his combining and every thing...It was too much for Itachi.

    So Itachi told Oro,
    "Look dude, I know were friends and all but...Your killing my bank account and my credit. Im sorry but I cant pay for all your stuff."

    Oro- "You cant do this to me, you know Sandaime didnt give me shit of money....Ahhh, WTF am I supposed to do now?!?!"

    Itachi- "well, I did give my bro 50% so he could eventually buy MS...Go and talk to him".

    So Oro left Akatsuki and we know the rest.

    They bought shares with their savings from proper shinobi pay days, then secretly attack rival companies so that their share value will rise. Less bothersome would be to spend wisely and frugally:)

    Obvious... duh. Naruto and Kakashi fund them, since Kishimoto is paying for their keep from Naruto sales.

    These people were all S-rank criminals, the genius's of their villages. They must of done thousands upon thousands of missions. They probably have money stored from all those.

    If you remember back to when Jiraiya and Kakashi were first talking about the Akatsuki, Jiraiya made some comment about how they had only taken on a few jobs so far, overthrowing leaders and things like that. Therefore, it seems that they have set themselves up a mercenary-type group of extremely powerful shinobi who will take on any job if the price is right, at least that's how they started...it seems likely that they've moved on to bigger and better things, like world domination and the such.

    Haha, this is the funniest thread I have ever seen. Zetsu eats dead bodies while Sasori doesn't have to eat at all. Kisame probably will jump into the river and catch some little fish? DeiDei eats dirt as we have seen in the self-explosion arc and dirt is everwhere. So Itachi maybe is the only one who has financial and food problem. He probably Tsukiyomis Ayame everyday to get a bowl of ramen.

    They are elite ninja... I'm sure they can scrounge up whatever food they need and simply take any clothing or supplies they need by force from random villages/towns.

    Well Sasori used to do puppet shows, Zetsu has his own flower shop, Deidara does fireworks shows, Itachi sells acid trips and we all know Kisame is a gigalo :p
