Today’s article will reveal who Tsunade is and what her role was in the larger Naruto story. Find out what happened to her. Keep reading to find out more.
Who is Tsunade, you ask?
Tsunade (Japanese Gang Shou ), is a fictional character that Masashi Kishimoto created and which first appeared in the Naruto series. She is known as the strongest kunoichi in the world and its greatest medical-nin. Her tragic story has shaped her into the character she sees in the main story. She is definitely one of the most badass characters in Naruto.
Tsunade, like her former teammates Jiraiya or Orochimaru is also a former student at Hiruzen Srutobi. Tsunade, despite looking young in her twenties and using a transformation technique to keep her youthful appearance, is actually an older woman in the fifties. Tsunade is also the grand-daughter of Hashirama Senju (Mito Uzumaki) and many of her friends refer her to her as “hime” (princess).
In her debut, she admits she doesn’t like the position despite her connection to the Hokage. She loses faith in both the title and dreams as a whole after her boyfriend Dan Kato and Nawaki Senju, her brother, die while pursuing their Hokage dreams. After meeting Naruto Uzumaki who overcomes all obstacles to his dreams of becoming Hokage, she regains faith in them both. Tsunade accepts the Fifth Hokage position (Wu Di Mu Huo Yi Godaime Hokage) to help Konohakagure. She also later takes Sakura as her apprentice, much like Orochimaru with Sasuke or Jiraiya and Naruto.
Tsunade, at the end the series, retires at the conclusion of the Fourth Great Ninja War. She bestows Kakashi the title of Hokage. In the epilogue, she was last seen at the wedding of Naruto-Hinata and other retired Kage.
Tsunade, despite the importance of her job, tends to slumber and ignore her daily tasks. She often delegated all responsibility to Shizune. She is a serious person in situations that Konoha is in peril. Throughout Part II, she also leads the village against the Akatsuki. Tsunade is a compulsive gambler who has terrible luck. However, she sees a rare streak of winnings as a bad sign.
Despite her eccentric personality, Tsunade can be a skilled medical ninja and heal wounds most people would consider incurable. She also has superhuman strength which allows her to remove debris from buildings. Her greatest achievements are the Creation Rebirth Jutsu, and the technique derived therefrom, the Strength of a Hundred Technique. Sakura was her disciple. Tsunade as well as Sakura make use of mitotic regeneration to become almost invincible at battle.
Does Tsunade die in Naruto?
People often ask Tsunade if she will die in the Naruto series. We warn those who haven’t read/viewed the material that spoilers are possible so be aware.
We believe it is best to first explain why Tsunade was believed to have died. It’s quite simple. She was close to death on two occasions. The first is when Pain attacked Konoha’s village in Naruto’s absence. Tsunade, who is actually very powerful but chooses to not fight, is the only person, as the Fifth Hokoge, who can defeat Pain.
Pain’s powers at that time were a little crazy, making him difficult to control and defeat. Tsunade managed to overcome Pain’s powers using her strongest technique, Strength of a Hundred. It almost cost her her life. She was unable to stand alone due to her chakra being so depleted, so other ninjas were forced to rescue her and heal her.
The second fight was then when Madara Uchiha, a real and revived Madara, fought the five Kages (Tsunade included). Despite the intensity of the fight Madara was able to easily obliterate all his opponents, almost killing them all. However, Tsunade survived. These were the situations in which Tsunade seemed to have died. However, we can see that she survived both.
Tsunade isn’t involved in major fights until the end, and we can assume she is still alive because she was present at the wedding of Naruto & Hinata. We believe she is retired and enjoying some peace. However, we don’t yet know where she is, but we do know that Kishimoto will tell us something about Tsunade.
Let’s just say that Tsunade is still alive and well in the Naruto franchise.
