Talking Tsunade and the extent of her power

It came to my attention in a discussion with someone that outside of the medical ninjutsu that Tsunade has .. we don't see much else from her other than taijutsu.. and then it is revealed the she has great strength.. something that she taught to Sakura so it isn't an ability that is exclusive to her... I was wondering if anyone had any clue as to any other abilities she supposedly possess that would warrant her the title of Hokage. In comparison to J-man and Orochimaru she doesn't seem to have any techniques, ninjutsu, genjutsu, or weapons training that would grant her being a powerhouse in the world of ninja like her team mates... does she have a natural affinity for earth (is that how she gets her strength . by manipulation of gravity) I was just wanting to hear any input as to what her abilities are and what made her a good choice for Hokage.

Re: Tsunade and the extent of her power

From the story, she's grand daughter to the 2nd hokage. Her strength comes from how she molds her chakra. And she is claimed to be a woman who can heal any wound, although it's been proven a few times that that's more of an exaggeration than a totally true statement. But, she is extraordinarily good at being a medical ninja. And, she's also one of the three Sannin.

Along with some of the aforementioned abilities she has, at the time the Fifth Hokage was chosen it was either her or Jiraiya, no one else in the village was ready or capable of being the Hokage. Jiraiya was offered the job first, but turned it down so it fell to Tsunade. That's pretty much it from what I remember and my POV.

Ok but what made her great other than her title as a sanin.. she only was great because of the team she was in.. we never seen her do any jutsu other than medical ninjutsu and her summoning jutsu... I mean Orochimaru has his summons the sword, reincarnation, and a whole gambit and J-man has his summons sage tech, spiky hair, flame tech can spit toad oil and a whole slew of other things .. and all Tsunade can do is summon, heal and is really strong. her medical abilities is no greater than Kabuto's. I'm just not seeing what qualified her to be the protector of the village. being the offspring of a former leader doesn't grant greatness.. just look at George W. Bush

Re: Tsunade and the extent of her power

Well, I guess the best way I can say she was deserving of the title of Sannin was because of how excellent she was as a medical ninja. From Tsunade's story arc, when she suggested all three man cells have a medical ninja in them, she was overruled because of how long it took to train a medical ninja and they needed all available ninjas for the war.

So, it's been established that training to be a medical nin is a long, slow, and very hard process. Which limits the ability to learn other jutsu. Sakura is proof of that, she's in the same boat as Tsunade, good medical ninja but lacking in other jutsus. So, I guess the reason Tsunade was granted the title of Sannin was because not only was she an excellent medical ninja, but she was one of the best medical ninja in the world at a very young age.

Beyond that, I don't really think there's anything else. But, I will say there are people on this forum with far greater knowledge of the series than me. I'm more of a casual Naruto fan compared to some of the more hardcore fans that hang around here. =D

Re: Tsunade and the extent of her power

We've seen for a fact that Tsunade can use Raiton.

Her physical strength is relatively unparalleled aside from maybe Sage Mode Naruto, possibly also Raikage.

She is very evidently just on a level all her own when it comes to healing techniques.

But, in spite of this, it is also VERY clear that, in combat alone, she is NOTHING compared to Jiraiya or Orochimaru.

Good point. She did have one heck of a hard time beating no armed Orochimaru to a draw at the climax of the Finding Tsunade arc, didn't she?

The granddaughter of thr 1st Hokage actually.

And since the first have super strength, (in anime and game though, the 3rd says herculean strength when the 1st punch him during the hokage battle royal) tsunade prob learn from his scroll or sommat.

someone else mentioned to em her being able to use lightning in her attacks but I thought they got that information when she fought against Kabuto .. I thought that affect was just her using her medical ninjutsu to affect his nervous system

It's obvious that she learned this strength enhancing ability from somewhere because how else would she be able to pass it on to Sakura unless Sakura and Tsunade are from the same bloodline

It explicitly says that she 'turned her chakra to lightning' in order to eff with Kabuto's nervous system. That's Raiton.

She didn't 'pass it on' to Sakura. Sakura doesn't naturally have the super-strength. Tsunade does. Sakura has to focus a shit ton of chakra into every punch to emulate the effect of superhuman strength. Tsunade's strength comes naturally.

That explains how it's done, where Tsunade learned to do it I don't know. But, it's safe to assume the strength isn't a blood line jutsu.

edit: Well, I mean explains how Sakura has those super punches of hers, not Tsunade's super strength.

Re: Tsunade and the extent of her power

Tsunade has displayed more than just overly-powerful punches. Tsunade has shown honest superhuman strength, up to and including wielding Gamabunta's sword/knife. For Bunta, it's a medium-sized blade. For Tsunade? About the size of a 4 story apartment complex.

Sakura's 'strength' is only in her punches BECAUSE she doesn't naturally have that strength. She has to focus her chakra into the punches to make them even close to as powerful as Tsunade's natural strength.

Well is there a way you can point me in the direction of this in either the manga or an anime link?

Re: Tsunade and the extent of her power

Please keep in mind that Grandma Tsunade is an old woman. Her physical age is older than her actual age thanks to her regeneration Jutsu. Just as the fourth Hokage was restricted in the jutsus he could use because of his age, the same is true for Tsunade. It has not been revealed how bad-ass she was in her prime, but I'm sure she was pretty damn impressive.

Now, you might say that Orochimaru and Jiraiya are all around the same age, but that is no longer the case. Orochimaru makes it a habit to steal young, strong bodies with various abilities...Jiraiya has his pervy-ness to keep him young...and he hasn't been subjected to advanced aging like Tsunade has.

Bottom line, age affects the amount of chakra an individual has...so don't judge her too harshly.

Re: Tsunade and the extent of her power

becoming hokage that means you're the strongest in konoha ,after sondaime died the strongest were
the advisers danzo jiraiya and tsunade and they decisded the title goes for jiraiya who turnt down for his reasons and suggested that tsunade to become the hokageand they agreed ,

she has this:
being family with the first, the second and student of the third made her follows the same idealogy.

2- she has in capabilty terms:genjutsu,perfect chakra control,being the best in medical jutsus stated by even her enemies as sasuri and chiyu ba sama, her combination of chakra control with taijutsu is deadly

3- for the hokage to be a medical specialist is huge advantage for the whole village fighters specially other than being fighter type, being a medical type stabilizes more
