In conjunction with these themes, Kishimoto also portrays his characters' personal flaws. This technique allows the audience to establish a personal connection to the characters of the story whether they are good or evil. Tsunade is a perfect example ofa character who has plenty of personal flaws and fears but can overcome them for the greater good of the village and her overall growth into a great kunoichi. Tsunade (綱手) is known by many names, most importantly as Fifth Hokage (五代目火影, Godaime Hokage) and Konoha's Slug Princess Tsunade (木ノ葉のナメクジ綱手姫, Konoha no Namekuji Tsunade-hime). While considered the most beautiful kunoichi in the world and a great healer, Tsunade also has plenty of secrets.

Updated on March 21st, 2022 by Amanda Bruce: When it comes to the Hokages of the Naruto franchise, Kakashi might be the fan-favorite, but Tsunade has just as much interesting backstory as he does. From her initial introduction as a gambler who doesn't want to return to her home village, Tsunade intrigued audiences. Even though she's not a huge part of the Boruto series, fans still wonder just what the character gets up to in her retirement from the political position.

Tsunade Graduated The Academy At Age Six

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (1)

In the world of Naruto, young shinobi go through their training at the Ninja Academy before being assigned to teams. Typically, children are enrolled at the Academy around age six or seven, take three or four years to complete their training, and graduate to become a genin, on average, around age 11. Most of Naruto and his friends become genin around that age.

That's not true of Tsunade. Tsunade enters and completes her training very early. Her stats in the manga dictate that she graduated from the Academy at the age of six - before most children would even begin attending. The only other character known for sure to have graduated at a younger age than Tsunade is Kakashi. He finished the Academy at the age of five.

Tsunade Has Type B Blood

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (2)

Blood types are one of the many pieces of information included about Naruto characters in the companion books for the manga. It's a common practice for fictional characters in Japan as there is a personality trait theory built around those blood types. Tsunade is revealed to have Type B blood, which is relatively rare in Japan. (Type A is the most common.)

According to the theory, those with Type B blood tend to be incredibly creative and passionate people. They also, however, are sometimes seen as selfish. Many have begun moving away from the practice of predicting personality based on blood type because of the negative traits associated with the types. For curious fans though, Tsunade shares her blood type with both Orochimaru and Jiraiya.

Tsunade Is A Leo

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (3)

It's unlikely that the fictional world of Naruto's shinobi follows the Western zodiac signs very closely, but if it did, Tsunade's August 10 birthday would make her a Leo. Leo is often seen as the partier of the zodiac, someone who loves to be the center of attention.

While Tsunade might not always present herself as someone who wants all eyes on her, she does maintain her youthful appearance for those eyes, and she also loves to have a good time. Leos can be charming, getting everyone to follow their lead, a good quality for a Hokage to have. They can also hold a grudge, as seen in the way Tsunade wants nothing to do with Konoha, Jiraiya, or Orochimaru when she's introduced to the series.

When the characters from Japanese television are dubbed for English audiences, they don't always keep the same voice actors. For the anime, Tsunade is dubbed into English courtesy of Debi Mae West. The voice actress has done a ton of work in animation and in video games, but her voice isn't leant to every Tsunade appearance.

Some of the video games see Tsunade voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. Sometimes, both voice-over actors even lend their voices to the same game. McGlynn is the actor responsible for dubbing another Naruto character into English, the sensei for Hinata, Kiba, and Shino - Kurenai.

Tsunade Is Mentioned Much Earlier Than She Appears In The Manga

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (5)

It's well known that Tsunade doesn't appear early in the anime series. She doesn't make her appearance until right before the time skip as Konoha needs a new Hokage and Jiraiya takes Naruto on a journey to train him. In the manga, her first appearance isn't until chapter 139. Her character, however, is teased long before that.

During the Chunin Exam arc of the manga, chapter 84 features Lee and Gaara's matchup. It's there that Tenten actually mentions Tsunade for the very first time. Her character is teased 55 chapters before she's ever seen by readers.

TsunadeMight Be Naruto’s Great Aunt

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (6)

Nothing has ever been explained in canon as to how Tsunade and Naruto are related. Yet, even without this being explained, the evidence is overwhelming to the fact that Tsunade is related to Naruto. Tsunade’s grandparents were Hashirama Senju (the first Hokage) and Mito Uzumaki. Naruto’s parents were Minato Namikaze (the fourth Hokage) and Kushina Uzumaki. Minato’s mom is an unnamed character in Naruto, but she is possibly the daughter of Hashirama Senju.

RELATED: 20 Best Episodes Of Naruto Shippuden According To IMDb

While the whole Senju and Uzumaki family tree might be confusing, it leaves open the possibility that Tsunade is related to Narutoand is actually his great aunt. Since the relation between Naruto and Tsunade is never officially discussed or revealed, this scenario stands to be the most likely. Perhaps in Borutothe lineage will eventually be revealed and fans canfinally get an answer.

Her Strength Developed Due To Jiraiya Teasing Her

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (7)

During Tsunade’s time at the academy, she was often the brunt of Jiraiya’s jokes. Her body had yet to develop since they were only children, which led to Jiraiya constantly calling her flat-chested. This teasing would cut Tsunade deeply, leading her to advance quickly in learning how to use her strength. She used this newfound strength to punchthrough walls andhit Jiraiya when she caught him peeping at her while she was bathing.

Would Tsunade have developed the great strength she has today if Jiraiya hadn’t teased her when they were younger? Perhaps, but it’s also possible that his teasing strengthened her to a whole new level. Ironically, the teasing would continue into their adult years. After the defeat of Orochimaru, they are seen hanging out together and reminiscing about the old days, with Jiraiya still making jokes about her physique.

TsunadeInitially Refused The Position Of Hokage

(Video) 20 MUST Known Tsunade FACTS || Naruto Facts Exploration (Part 4)

Prior to the showdown with Orochimaru (when Tsunade refuses to heal his arms in exchange for the resurrection of Dan and Nawaki) Jiraiya asksTusande to become the fifth Hokage. Appalled at the notion, Tsunade states that the past Hokage wasted their lives for the village and goes on to say, “only a fool would ever want the title.”

The battle with Orochimaru, however, would change her perspective, giving her a new purpose and outlook on life. It was during this battle that shewould decide that her loved ones wouldn’t want to be resurrected in exchange for the destruction of the village that they died to protect. Tsunade would then overcome her fear of blood during the battle and finally be moved by Naruto’s “Will of Fire” to never give up. She would leave that battlefield with a clear and determined mindset, which she most likely hadn’t felt since the death of Dan and her younger brother.

TsunadeIs The Last Surviving Member Of The Senju Clan

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (9)

The Senju clan (千手一族, Senju Ichizoku) and the Uchiha clan (うちは一族, Uchiha Ichizoku) were the first two clans to form a shinobi village. The name Senju means “a thousand skills," and its membersare known for being adept and proficient in all the ninja arts. This balance of skill led to the Senjubecomingone of the most powerful clans in the world, next to the Uchiha.

The Senju have commonly been Hokage due to their vast knowledge of the ninja arts, great leadership skills, and their main philosophy known as the “Will of Fire.” Despite Tsunade not wanting to be a Hokage at first, it’s in her blood to be a natural leader, along with the protector of the village and its people.

TsunadeWitnessed Two Generations Become Hokage After Her

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (10)

The transition of Tsunade leaving the Hokage position, along with who took office after her, can be confusing. During her battle with Pain, Tsunade uses up all of her chakra, leaving her in a comatose state in which she was saved by Dan Katō's Spirit Transformation Technique. Danzō Shimura is elected as the sixth Hokage but dies before being officially appointed the position in battle at the Samurai Bridge.

Kakashi Hatake is then made the official sixth Hokage, and Tsunade helps him with the duties during his first year. Following Kakashi’s term, Naruto is elected and becomes the Seventh Hokage. To retire as a Hokage is uncommon, as most end up sacrificing their lives to save the village. Because of her healing abilities and Dan’s soul being released from the Impure World Reincarnation, Tsunade was saved from this fate and lived to witness more than her predecessors.

TsunadeInitially Hated Naruto

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (11)

Tsunade runs into Jiraiya and Naruto during the early stages of Naruto’s training with Jiraiya. It’s during this meeting when Naruto declares to her that he will become Hokage one day. Confronted with her memories of her younger brother (Nawaki) and her lover (Dan Katō) both wanting to become Hokage, but dying before they could fulfill that dream, Tsunade dislikes Naruto immediately for believing in such fantasies.

She grows even more annoyed with Naruto as he continues to speak, eventually telling him that she could beat him with a single finger. Naruto naturally arises to the challenge and is repeatedly beat down by Tsunade. The scuffle would end with a bet. Naruto claims he can master the Rasengan in three days. Tsunade gave him a week, thinking it to be impossible for Naruto to accomplish this.

TsunadeIs Based On An Old Japanese Folktale

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (12)
(Video) 30 Interesting Facts about Orochimaru You Probably Didn't Know

The Japanese folktale of The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya, was a major influence for the creation of the Sannin in Naruto, similar to how Greek mythology played a huge part in the story ofWonder Woman.

Masashi Kishimoto not only borrowed the character names Tsunade, Jiraiya, and Orochimaru from the tale, but he also adapted their storylines and abilities too. Kishimoto wasn’t the only artist to adapt this popular tale, as it has been re-imagined hundreds of times over in various forms, such as video games, films, novels, and manga. In The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya, Tsunade and Jiraiya use toad magic and healing to defeat Orochimaru who uses snake magic. Sound familiar? Ironically in the tale, Tsunade not only had healing powers but is married to Jiraiya.

Tsunade IsKnown As The Legendary Sucker

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (13)

The success of the Naruto franchise was built on characters whowere relatable, due to their flaws and fears. Tsunade became known as the Legendary Sucker (伝説のカモ, Densetsu no Kamo) because of her vice towards gambling, in which she would place poor bets, have horrible luck, and rack up huge losses. Tsunade knows that she stinks at gambling, but continues to do it anyway. She also knows that, if she hits a winning streak, something horrible is about to occur because of her bad luck.

Other vices that make Tsunade more relatable as a character include being a heavy drinker, having a short temper, sleeping on the job, and having others do her work for her. These flaws in her personalityare what make Tsunade more than a fictional character - they make her identifiable. When she overcomes fears and obstacles in life, Tsunade becomes an inspiration despite her flaws and bad luck.

Her Data Stats Are Unusually High

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (14)

Tsunade is a Sannin, making her a formidable and powerful opponent. However, her data stats have her placed at a score of 35 out of a possible 40 points, which is unusually high. To put things in perspective, Jiraiya’s score is 35.5 (he is tied with Itachi Uchiha for having the highest stats total), while Sakura only scores a high of 26.

Granted, her reputation as the world's strongest kunoichi and greatest medical-nin do propel her stat scores.However, for fans who watched the anime and read the manga, these ratings seem high because the audience often witnessed her getting beat in battle. Fans did experience a taste of this strength, however, as she split open the ground with a single finger, broke Jiraiya’s arms and cracked six ribs,and broke through a Susanoo with only a few hits.

Tsunade IsStill Alive

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (15)

Tsunade is alive and well, even in the current Boruto anime series. While the new series doesn't disclose more than the fact that she's retired, she has made a handful of appearances between the anime and the manga.

Fansknow Tsunade attended the wedding of Naruto and Hinata, mostly keeping to herself and occasionally offering advice to Yamato regarding the preparations. The next time she is mentioned is in the New Age of the Naruto franchise. She’s seen attending a Five Kage Summit that takes place in Konoha where, according to her, the others, “get drunk and complain about things.”She only appears briefly in the Boruto series as a result, but there's always room for another return.

TsunadeSecretly Had Deep Feelings For Jiraiya

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (16)

Tsunade loved Dan Katō. There’s no denying this fact. When Dan was killed during the Second Shinobi War, it left a huge hole in Tsunade’s heart and she never got close to anyone like that again.Jiraiya always wanted to be with Tsunade, but as he claims, “to be happy was not his fate.” Despite Tsunade always rejecting Jiraiya, the two became close friends and often had a drink together when their paths crossed.

Before leaving to fight Pain, Jiraiya asks Tsunade if she’ll give him a chance when he comes back. Tsunade agrees to this, but sadly Jiraiya dies on the battlefield. Fans can only wonder how things may have turned out if he had survived. Would Tsunade have held up her end of the agreement? Could they have fallen in love with each other? Alas fans will never know, but they can dream.

TsunadeUses A Customized Version Of The Transformation Technique To Look Younger

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (17)

The Transformation Technique in its normal form is used to turn an individual into something that they are not. Usually, this involves transforming into an animal or a log, or, in Naruto’s case, a sexy woman. This technique is often hard to maintain, as it constantly draws from an individual’s chakra while in use.

RELATED: Naruto Characters And Their Disney Counterparts

Tsunade uses a combination of the Strength of a Hundred Seal and the Transformation Technique to maintain the appearance of looking younger. This more advanced version of the technique is unique since it doesn’t require her to exert herself to maintain it. Sheuses chakra stored in the Strength of a Hundred Seal, which is visible as a diamond on her forehead, providing chakra for her younger appearance. The only time Tsunade's natural appearance is shown is when she drains all the chakra from her hundred seal.

The Two People Tsunade Gave Her Necklace To Died

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (18)

Thenecklace that Tsunade wore around her neck was given to her by her grandfather (the first Hokage) and was made from a special Crystal Gem (結晶石, Kesshōseki). The purpose of the necklace was to capture and control tailed beasts. She first gives the necklace to Nawaki on his twelfth birthday because of his desire to become a Hokage. Nawaki would die the following day in battle.

The second person she gives the necklace tois Dan out of love for him and due to his desire to also be Hokage one day. Like Nawaki, Dan would also be killed in battle. Tsunade believed the necklace to be a curse since the two people she gave it to were killed. The trend was broken when Naruto takes the necklace after winning a bet with Tsunade. However, the necklace eventually breaks whenNarutoloses control advancing to his six-tailed form.

TsunadeSees A lot Of Herself In Sakura

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (19)

The anime never really shows the personal interaction between Sakura and Tsunade, but this was mostly because Naruto already had enough filler episodes that focused on the training and relationshipbetween Naruto and Jiraiya. Just because it wasn’t shown, however, doesn’t mean it didn’t exist.

Sakura is similar to Tsunade in that she excels intraining how to heal, being the only person able to master the 100 healings jutsu besides Tsunade. She also shows incredible strength while battling, and can summon Katsuyu (a giant slug from the Shikkotsu Forest) like Tsunade. The only way Tsunade could have taught Sakura all of these techniques and have her become just as skilled at them would beif Tsunade and Sakura were extremelyclose - not just in skill, but also in personality.

Tsunade'sName Is Often Translated Incorrectly

Naruto: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Tsunade (20)

The name Tsunade (綱手) is often translated to mean “mooring rope." While this may be a version of her translated name, it doesn’t match her name as it is used in the Naruto story. Names are very important in storytelling, often giving purpose and meaning to the character.

The translation gets misinterpreted with one particularsymbol (綱). In the Japanese to English translation this means “mooring rope,” but when translated using simplified Chinese, the name can mean “steel hand.” The latter makes way more sense than the English version. Because all languages contain idioms, the controversy of the true meaning of Tsunade’s name continues to date. However, by factoring in her personality and characteristics, it only seems natural that Tsunade’s name should mean "steel hand."
