I jut noticed something. His eyes look the same when was alive and when he was edo tensei'd (color and tsuff). (talk) 00:40, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

He is already mentioned to have dark sclera in the appearance section while alive, and since Edo Tenseied people get those, it seems pointless to note that. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:48, February 16, 2011 (UTC)
It is pretty funny, but 3rd Raikage had more darker eyes than when resurrected :D VolteMetalic (talk) 10:34, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

Raiton and doton

In chapter 548 "He tells them that he is a Lightning Release user and that anyone that didn't use Earth Release should fall back." Could this posible be a mistranslation, has anybody seen raws or something, cause to me this makes absolutly no sense at all. The doton users should to my knowledge be the first to run. --Cosmikaze (talk) 20:12, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

He did say that following Naruto logic they should be but it is possible that he has other weaknesses.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:21, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
I seriously hope this is a mistranslation, and that what he actually said was something along "people move back, specially Earth Release users". Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:11, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
Mangastream has changed it, so its confirmed to be translation error. Someone has already edited it. [1]—This unsigned comment was made by Cosmikaze (talkcontribs) .
on the one i read he said im gonna blast away the doton users in the front —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .
If the spoilers are to be believed, the Third Raikage says:
"I'm a Raiton user! I'll be attacking the Doton users in the front row like no tomorrow!!" (「ワシは雷遁を使う!土遁の忍を前列に置きワシの攻めたてろ!!」, Washi wa Raiton o tsukau! Doton no shinobi o zenretsu ni oki washi no semetatero!!)

Wind release?

Im personly think that the thing about him possesing wind release is a mistranslation. I read the Mangastream translation[2] too, but i also read the mangareader translation[3] and i honestly think that makes a lot more sense. I dont know what everyone else think, but i would say wait with it until ShounenSuki can get his hands on a raw. I might be wrong, but i get the feeling this weeks mangastream is full of errors, and for once i actually prefer mangereaders. --Cosmikaze (talk) 13:41, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

I think you're right, the spoiler translations said something similar. Mangastreams translations seem to be full of mistakes.--Deva 27 13:46, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

I also agree, that translation would make sense, because Wind nature is strong against lighting nature which explains why they need a wind user, not that he is a wind user. Also, temari wonders how he died since she is a powerful wind user and she can't take him down, then dodai explains. It makes more sense the way manga reader translated it. --Sauske-Blaze (talk) 16:27, August 31, 2011 (UTC)Sauske-Blaze

I think our best bet is to wait for Shounensuki who I think might end up translating over the whole chapter this week.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 16:30, August 31, 2011 (UTC)
Despite his tendency to spice things up, HisshouBakuren was a more reliable translator, Mangastream had better scanlations with him. I don't like Naruhodo. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:58, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

How come Shounensuki doesnt translate in to begin with?Vmejia (talk) 23:28, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

I don't know how his schedule is (though I do know he's in college), but being a scanlation translator involves being readily available for the job, I don't think he has such a flexible schedule. He does translate spoilers frequently though. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:04, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

thanks for the answer.I hope we get some clarity on this issue soon, personally I think it would be awesome if he could use fuuton, it would give him an almost celestial feel, if that makes sense it seems to fit in with his character.Vmejia (talk) 04:40, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

It's most possibly a mistake since it wasn't said that he had a 'wind technique' rather than a 'wind element technique' . Dodai couldve just been talking about teh black lightning since it's long range/ wide range, and it could flatten an entire platoon. I don't think we'll see it since naruto will most possibly defeat him wit fuuton rasenshuriken. Otokage (talk) 21:35, September 1, 2011 (UTC)Otokage


Is it known whether the third raikage himself is so durable, or is he durable because of the lightning release armor?—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

It was stated that his body could withstand any jutsu and that it was the "strongest shield".--Deva 27 02:25, September 8, 2011 (UTC)
It's probably a mixture of Lighting release armor and natural durability that makes him so tough(throw in edo-tensei regeneration and he's untouchable to almost everything).-- (talk) 08:01, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
Naruto attacked him with a wind release technique. Lightning is weaker than wind so the armour probably has nothing to do with his body being a shield.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 09:54, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, despite the armour's inherent weakness to Wind release, it is almost certainly the armour that gives him the resistance. Case and point: without the armour, Temari's Wind tech was able to cut him up quite easily, yet Naruto's Rasenshuriken did little upon his donning of the armour. Skitts (talk) 16:22, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

There is a limit which the armour can take. He survived due to his body and Edo Tensei regenerationUndominanthybrid (talk) 19:47, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Strongest Kage

Is it possible that he is the strongest raikage i mean look at him i saw in manga omg he can beat the crap outta anyone --Wcrolas990 (talk) 13:58, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Though it was said in the chapter, we should wait until raws came out to confirm that is what was said.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 14:01, September 8, 2011 (UTC)


How about adding his body endurance to "Unique Traits"? Thunder God Cid (talk) 00:13, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Young image

The image where he wounds himself in the chest (after falling down with his jutsu active) shows him in his youth. Anyone think it should be added, or is the pose too awkward for appearance section? SimAnt 01:18, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

I say add it. It's a rather strange angle, but it shows him well enough. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:25, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Endurance & Durability??

I should have posted this before editing probably but endurance is stamina while durability is how physically tough something is. Now he does have endurance (fighting a thousand nin for 3 days or whatever) but having endurance is not going to protect you from a Rasenshuriken or any other technique:

1. According to Dodai, only long-range Wind Release attacks could harm him, but due to his immense endurance 2. he was renowned for his tremendous level of endurance so much so that his body gained the name the "strongest shield" (最強の盾, saikyō no tate) because it could withstand any type of technique. 3. With his immense endurance, Mabui stated that he was the only person capable of being transported by the Heavenly Transfer Technique without being torn to shreds because of his tough body. =]

Shouldn't B be listed as the Third Raikage's adopted son? D!ABLO-32 (talk) 12:42, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

We don't know that he ever adopted B officially. Other than that, they are actually already related.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 12:52, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

They are not related. A is the son of the Third Raikage. B and A have no blood relation.--—This unsigned comment was made by Shinobi Reaper (talkcontribs) .

Friend... Your stupid is showing. We don't know whether or not they're related outside of A adopting B as a brother. All jinchuriki are said to have been related to the Kage in some way as a security measure. For all we know B could be A's cousin in actuality.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 02:40, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

Raikage's Death

Where does it say that the Third Raikage died Thirty Years ago? I don't remember seeing that in the manga (talk) 00:58, April 29, 2012 (UTC)No one

It was calculated based on B's background story I believe.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 01:04, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

That wouldn't make any sense though. B's age is currently 35, and we know that the Third Raikage was alive when A and B briefly fought Minato. So he would have had to die much sooner than 30 years ago (talk) 01:12, April 29, 2012 (UTC)No one

3rd sealed the Eight-Tails when it went berserk. Motoi's dad has died and Motoi was young, about 6 let's say ... now they are 35 or something so sure 30 years.--Elveonora (talk) 01:35, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

You're misreading the article. It says he was the leader of Kumogakure thirty years prior to the Fourth Shinobi World War, not that he died thirty years prior to the Fourth Shinobi World War. We were never told when he died, just how. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 04:21, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Only shinobi capable of going up against a Tailed Beast?

Seriously, whichever guy said this is a nutcase, if he said in their time it would have made some sense, but in all time, never. The Third is undoubtedly an extremely powerful shinobi, but in the case of going up against a tailed beast, Hashirama Senju is on a much much higher league, going up against multiple while the Third went to fight a solo tailed beast, which is definetly admirable, but nothing compared to the Shodai Hokage. I know that whatever I said is rubbish as it has no relation to the article, and would most probably be thrown out, but I had to say this to give my mind a rest. (talk) 18:20, October 14, 2012 (UTC)

Whomever else is able to go up against a tailed beast has no bearing on the Third Raikage and what was said about him. We cannot or at least should not alter one character's info based on what others can do.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 12:47, October 15, 2012 (UTC)
