Lightning element

She clearly says in chapter 164 she turned her chakra into electricity. That IS lightning element. It should be added to her page for real, instead of saying possibly, because even the technique description says she changed her chakra into electricity... which is what Sasuke and Kakashi do for the Chidori and Raikiri. It is NO different than them (talk) 07:15, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

I noticed that you are referring to Tsunade's lightening release as "presumed" although it was clearly described in the manga that she has a lightening release [[1]]. Also, it is described here in wiki [[2]] and your description of this ninjutsu is easily linked to your own description of the lightening release here in wiki [[3]].

You are taking out an obvious power of Tsunade just because it wasn't confirmed in the databook !?

All the new justsu for all characters aren't included nor described in the databooks yet you are not describing it as "presumed".

The manga should have the priority in describing the powers and jutsu for all characters and you should base the information here on the manga first not the databooks.

Also, don't forget that when Tsunade used the Ranshinsho, it was before Kakashi describes how element types work to Naruto. Therefore, it was acceptable in the beginning to not include it in her data, but not anymore.

Please fix Tsunade's data and remove the "presumed" remark.

If you think I'm wrong then please describe to me how is the Ranshinsho different from the Raikiri or Chidori which led you to the concept of Tsunade not having a lightening release?

Thank you. --Saint Juste (talk) 11:12, June 24, 2013 (UTC)--Saint Juste (talk) 15:33, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

I agree with Saint Juste. When she used the jutsu, elemental releases weren't really a big thing then. That was a time when Chidori/Raikiri was still 'visible chakra on their hand' kind of deal. She does say that she changes her chakra into electricity (at least that is what the translations say), which is exactly what lightning release is. Joshbl56 16:09, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Even if it has a presumed tag, it got listed, which is more than most similar situations get as resolution. Most are either put in the trivia, danced around of stuff, or not mentioned at all. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:14, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Get Seelentau to look at the kanji and etc of everything. It may be that it simply refers to electricity rather than lightning, in terms of Raiton, which would rest the case once and for all. It'd also perhaps moreso refer to the electrical pulses in ones body in regards to nerves and etc than it is a release. So even if in the case she does turn it into electrical signals, that's not the same as Raiton.--Taynio (talk) 00:20, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Sounds great Obnibender lets get read of it and put it in the trivia tell it gets conformedBestKage (talk) 00:24, June 25, 2013 (UTC)BestKage

Except not. At first, I didn't support listing her as a user of Lightning Release because her technique was so completely different from all other lightning techniques. Then the Raikage's armour came along, and it worked on pretty the same principle, so I changed my mind. I find it unlikely that the situation will change. It will not be removed to trivia, nor will the tag be removed, because no new information is, or is likely to be available, and perhaps most important at this point, this topic is a beaten dead horse, and every one who has ever taken part of it before is sick and tired of it. The way things are is the compromise between every one of those people who can't stand the topic any more. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:47, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

While still a considerable distance from the battlefield, Tsunade quickly recognized her grandfather's chakra, before he said anything telepathically. I think this would at least suggest that she is a sensor-type. Steveo920 September 17, 2013, 16:51

Images of Tsunade attacking Madara

Right now, we have this image for her abilities-section and this for her plot-section. I think using it the other way around would be more reasonable as an image of Tsunade actually destroying Madara's Susanoo seems to be more appropriate to show her abilities, rather than just punching against it. Norleon (talk) 10:34, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

Agreed.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 23:50, October 19, 2013 (UTC)

Wood Clone of Madara

Madara only switched with a wood clone to escape sealing. Tsunade hit the real one: this is evidenced by Madara's body regenerating after being hit and paper and ash flying off his body when hit. Wood Clones don't have that effect, they just turn to wood to be used in a counter attack.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 23:50, October 19, 2013 (UTC)

Thats more of an assumption than a fact. They are clones and it has never been stated or proven they can't regenerate. Besides, if Tsunade had hit the real Madara, he would't have had time to switch with a clone as Gaara's sand surrounded him too fast and he would have known right away if Madara switched because he would have had to go through the sand afterwards and Gaara would have felt it. The ground is not applicable as Madara was midair. He switched with the clone before it took the hit and just waited to catch her off-guard. The real one probably would not have been so easy to hit as that. Raikage is faster and he couldn't land a solid hit on Madara and was blocked and Madara was also able to perfectly block Tsunade earlier. The Fox King(The Fox King 20:06, October 20, 2013 (UTC))

Did Hashirama's wood clones regenerate after being struck by Madara and Obito respectively? Did Yamato's regenerate after being struck by Orochimaru? The manga heavily shows Tsunade hit the real Madara when he fought her fight in Taijutsu.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 20:10, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

She couldn't have as their would not have been time to make a wood clone and it seemed way too easy, as though he took the hit purposely, no guarding attempt or anything. He did absolutely nothing to defend himself. That seems more like a clone and he was just waiting to strike her at the right time. Whats said after the revealation more implies, even in mangastream's version that he switched before rather than after being hit. P.S. lets just have this conversation on here rather than our talk pages. The Fox King(The Fox King 20:14, October 20, 2013 (UTC))

New Jutsu

Tsunade was seen blocking/intercepting madara's attack with her chakra covered arms. is this a new jutsu? it has never been seen in this form. if it has ever been seen in the series by someone else who is the user. What is the name of this jutsu?LordofForbiddenJutsu (talk) 22:10, December 1, 2013 (UTC)LordofForbiddenJutsu

Transformation Technique?

What is the source for her younger appearance being a result of (an advanced form of) the Transformation Technique? As far as I can tell, Jiraiya simply said that she makes herself look younger using techniques. Since her younger appearance has now been linked to her forehead seal, it seems unlikely to be a simple Transformation Technique.--BeyondRed (talk) 04:08, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

I agree with you, it can't be a normal Transformation...she is basically using the chakra of her Byakugo to constantly replenish her cells with chakra, so as far as she runs out of her Byakugo and normal chakra, she starts to age, dramatically(she looked in the latest anime episode much older than 55). Gerisama (talk) 20:16, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Databook said so. Her using chakra from a seal designed to store and disperse chakra in the body doesn't make it any more unique. Naturally when she starts running out of chakra, then the technique would become undone since its being diverted to idk - saving her life.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 20:38, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Tsunade's Youth Jutsu

Basically, having seen the latest anime episode I've realized that I always skipped one bit about Tsunade's Youth jutsu, that it is much more than a normal Henge no Jutsu. First, it's a constant technique, once its activated it will be active until Tsunade is completely out of chakra or when she dispels it. Second,not like any other kind of henge, the jutsu won't end after being injured, pierced, sliced in half or during other serious issues. Third, I believe Tsunade is using her Byakugo no In, to rejuvinate herself,and it is using up chakra constantly from her seal(also mentioned when Sakura activated her). And only after she basically used up all her chakra, not just from the seal, the jutsu stops and shortly she is reverting to her real age( or beyond) I suggest that we should create a separate page for her Transformation jutsu. Gerisama (talk) 20:27, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

All of this is not news, it has been known for ages and is mentioned all over the wikia. It's the same Transformation Technique, just used uniquely and on an advanced scale by Tsunade.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 20:35, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Tsunade's inheritance

Is it really safe to assume that Tsunade truly inherited the Uzumaki clan's life forces? Quite frankly, this is a rather wild assumption. There is nothing that truly indicates or proves that she has inherited an ability of the Uzumaki clan, though there are a few indicators that could actually prove the exact opposite. Automatically assuming that she has the Uzumaki clan's life forces only because her grandmother possessed them can not be done. After all, as she admitted herself, she has not inherited the ability to use any kind of Mokuton jutsu despite being Hashirama Senju's granddaughter. In fact, Madara even pointed out that she did not inherit Hashirama's ability to heal oneself without using seals. This healing ability is, if I am not mistaken, the result of the strong life forces of the Senju clan as well as the Uzumaki clan. If she had indeed inherited those life forces, would she not be able to do the same as her grandfather? I mean as of yet, Tsunade was not able to heal her own injuries without using either medical ninjutsu, Katsuyu's healing abilities or the Byakogou. As Sakura is also capable of using the Byakogou, we can automatically assume that the Byakogou is not a technique that Tsunade inherited from the Uzumaki or Senju clan. Self-acting regeneration, as Hashirama and Karin/Kabuto have performed it, is nothing Tsunade seemed to be capable of. It was never stated that she heals her own injuries quickly or anything like that. I really doubt we should publish this kind of information if there is no solid proof of Tsunade's inheritance.--Matako (talk) 13:16, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

I brought this up before. For some reason, specific individuals LOVE to attribute Ashura and Indra's inheritance to every single of their descendants.--Elveonora (talk) 13:22, September 20, 2014 (UTC)
This "my scrotum hangs lower than everyone else's" mentality that you have doesn't get you or the wiki anywhere. It's probably why no one did anything when you allegedly brought it up Elveonora. The article has been adjusted accordingly since we really shouldnt have any of that there apart from Mito, Kushina and the Uzumaki head's articles. Sidenote: it is true that Tsunade did not inherit wood release — no one did. That doesn't mean she got nothing from her lineage. That's not how genetics work.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 13:56, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

I appreciate that very much. Thank you. To clear up a little misunderstanding, though: What I meant to imply when I brought up the example of Tsunade neither inheriting the wood release nor Hashirama's regeneration ability was that it is truly possible not to inherit abilities through one's grandparents in the Naruto world, which is why it can not be automatically assumed that grandchildren possess the same abilities as their grandparents. I should have explained that more accurately. Pardon. Matako (talk) 14:08, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

Cannon or not

I posted a doubt on the q&a, but was told to discuss it here. On an extra where Tsunade is training Sakura, she uses multiple shadow clones and throw volley balls at her. Then, I asked why it wasn't listed in her jutsus, and he said that it wasn't cannon. So what's the criteria here for what is cannon, and what isn't? Fillers and even game jutsus are listed, even though Naruto UNS3 contradicts the anime/manga in the 5 kages vs Madara and Naruto vs Obito fight, but an extra can't?

I'm gonna assume (Note: assuming here) we'll do the same thing we did with Asura and Indra: wait until the last name is stated, no matter how obvious it is. She can be added as a member of the Senju clan if she hasn't already.
It's similar to Sakura's situation. Married Sasuke, wears the Uchiha robes, is part of the Uchiha clan, but "Sakura Uchiha" isn't stated in the article because it was never stated officially.
But hey, that consistency we've had for years when it pertains to names can be changed up anytime. Not sure we should rename the entire article when she's been referred to as "Tsunade" for 700+ chapters... WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 16:37, May 8, 2015 (UTC)

Hell no. Just like with the Kurenai article, the article will not be changed considering that she is called Tsunade for the near majority of the series.

Calm down, Sajuuk, Rage gtx was just asking a question. Maybe "Tsunade Senju" can be a redirect (like Sakura Uchiha and Hinata Uzumaki)? Though still not mentioned in the article nor a rename because it was never stated. WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 17:03, May 8, 2015 (UTC)

My edits are rudely undone (Nawaki/Uzumaki Siblings). I don't know what the male chauvinism will done next. If they know Tsunade/Nawaki were the children of Hashirama & Mito's DAUGHTER (very likely) later, they will remove this as well. Clan can represent the powerful potential of a character. They even don't bother to label Minato/Sai as a member of their representative wives... Kishimoto only let Sakura use the Uchiha cresent now, and Hinata use Uzumaki's in her items. He never stated the rule of being/not being a clan member.

Maybe they will also think that, Mito & Hashirama's marriage was a political exchange. So Hashirama just give her the wife status and rarely have sex with her, he have the parent of Tsunade with a mistress or concubine? Interesting.

Also, another funny thing. In Chinese (not Japanese though) paternal and maternal grandparents are used in different words. Guess what they would do if english is like that! In China uneducated readers think that it's a shame for Minato to "tied to his wife's apron strings" only because Naruto take the Uzumaki surname.Amy Xu (talk) 00:30, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

The only way I can respond to your statements is this: Read this conversaton, please. In its entirety. Basically, people only belong to one clan at a time, not multiple. If we classified characters as clan members based on the blood they carry, Naruto, Nagato, Karin, and other Uzumaki would all be part of the Senju clan, and anyone who is a Senju, Uchiha or Hyūga would be part of the Ōtsutsuki clan, based on them all being descendants of Hagoromo or Hamura. That is the reason why your edits are being undone. Tsunade was stated to be only part of the Senju clan in the Michi guidebook, not the Uzumaki clan, regardless of her being the granddaughter of Mito. WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 00:43, May 22, 2015 (UTC)
In fact I've read that before putting this. I think a policy/Theory can not contradicts everywhere. What I doubt is, Why Karui and Hinata are automatically put in their spouse's clan, while Sai and Minato not? There is something that makes double standard and violate the equality. You said "The only way" because you can't explain other things to me. In I've talked about the Ōtsutsuki issue here. Also, not everyone in Uzumaki is a Senju, but there's a proof that Tsunade is a Uzumaki as a Senju, in Asians. Before I saw the Naruto series, she was labeled as Senju Tsunade in the Uneducated people's BAIKE (WIKI in china to replace wikipedia).

(But I won't insist something about her from now. Apart from not liking this character, also, because I know, every wikia is dominated by a few particular ones)

Also, there might be people not the descendant of Kaguya but managed to get chakra.Amy Xu (talk) 01:04, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

Why Karui and Hinata are automatically put in their spouse's clan, while Sai and Minato not?
For. The. Last. Time. In the real world, women marry into the man's clan, not the other way around. Likewise, in the Naruto universe, Mito is part of the Senju clan, but Hashirama is not part of the Uzumaki clan. It's exactly like how a woman takes the man's last name after they marry.
Also, not everyone in Uzumaki is a Senju,
No, they are not, but every Uzumaki carries Senju blood. In chapter 500, Kushina confirmed that the Uzumaki and Senju are blood relatives. Nagato is also an Uzumaki, and chapter 606 confirmed him to carry the Senju bloodline. The Senju came first through Asura, and the Uzumaki followed after. The manga stated this. And the only reason why I am linking you to other discussions is because it gets tiring to constantly repeat what we've said many times.

We don't know if all of that happened in her dream, though. Jiraiya's novel isn't non-fiction to that dream, is it? I was thinking something like this:
"In the anime where her dream was expounded on, Jiraiya gives Tsunade one of his novels to read titled "Jiraiya Ninja Scrolls", despite her telling him she had no interest in it earlier. In the novel, Konoha went through much less upheaval; the Fourth Hokage and his wife survived the Nine-Tails' Attack on Konoha, and the Uchiha Clan Downfall never happened."

That is accurate. Hashirama is a broken Man-God who auto-healed himself. Tsunade is an actual ninja trained to do medication. I may be wrong but when Madara brought up Hashirama, he was talking about Tsunade's ability to heal herself and noted Hashirama's ability to do so without any effort on his part. Then Tsunade turned on Strength of a Hundred and started doing it herself.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 10:45, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

Because being able to heal oneself does not a medical ninja make. Naruto for example would auto-heal most wounds fairly quickly and when he had the Yang Power, could regrow an eye. But he does not have actual medical-nin training. Hashirama, as far as we know, is the same way. He can heal, but as he isn't officially a medical-nin.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 11:10, October 20, 2016 (UTC)

Tsunade (綱手) is a descendant of the Senju and Uzumaki Clan along with one of Konohagakure's Sannin; famed as the world's strongest kunoichi and its greatest medical-nin.
