I don't know how, is their anyway this page can be retitled to the Japanese translation Sword of the Thunder God? Rayfire 22:12, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Lightning Release?

More than once now, I've seen people adding and removing Lightning Release from the two wielders of this sword. I'd really like to have this properly discussed, since we have another sword, which we currently list as bestowing Lightning Release. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:11, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

What's done for one reciprocate for the other? They basically do the same thing I think.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 17:50, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

Tobirama as a User

"This sword was owned by Tobirama Senju." This was just a claim Aoi made, where's the evidence Tobirama even had this sword at all ? --Speysider (Talk Page) 22:14, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

As something anime-only, I don't think this is very important. At no moment anyone acted like this piece of information was a lie. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:17, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe it could read something like "According to Aoi Rokusho, this sword was wielded by Tobirama Senju" but it doesn't matter all that much, just as you said. --Speysider (Talk Page) 22:18, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
Well Idate, if I remember correctly, went through a very long story about stealing it from wherever it was in Konoha. Hence why he left the village with Aoi, me thinks.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 22:20, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
That's true, but it probably isn't true due to it being anime only. --Speysider (Talk Page) 22:21, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
It's not untrue, just not manga canon. You have to remember that the wikia is chronicling both. And since we don't isolate information unless it clashes with the manga then we can't exactly go around calling everything a lie.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 22:41, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
True. I just feel it'd be better if the article didn't say as though Tobirama really did wield it as that has never been completely confirmed in the manga, only claimed by some anime only characters. Something like "According to Aoi Rokosho, this sword was created and wielded by Tobirama Senju." Just my opinion though. --Speysider (Talk Page) 22:43, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

I know this topic's been dead for about a year, but recent chapters have proven that Tobirama at least was no stranger to kenjutsu. So slightly more basis if nothing else. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 23:32, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

Most ninja from that era were no strangers to swordsmanship. Only "nowadays" it's used mostly only by ANBU Kumo ninja.--Elveonora (talk) 12:17, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
