Orochimaru appeared in the chibi spin-off of Naruto entitled Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals. Unlike in the original version, he is rather portrayed in the series as a comedic villain similar to Team Rocket and some numerous comedic Japanese villains. He first appeared in episode 7 alongside with Kabuto planning to destroy Konoha while disguised as tourists only to be foiled by Team Guy. He alongside with Kabuto reappeared throughout the series as villains trying to take revenge on Lee for foiling their plan.
