Clan Senju

Senju Clan - Wiki

The Senju clan was considered the most powerful clan in the ninja world 💪 during the period of war that preceded the founding of the Hidden Villages. Along with their rival, the Uchiha clan, they are responsible for the founding of Hidden Leaf Village and the incarnation of the village that the series reflects today. They are also distant relatives of the Uzumaki clan .

The origin of the Senju Clan:

Madara indra asura Hashirama

The Senju clan is descended from Asura who is one of the two sons of Hagoromo Otsutsuki . He inherited his father's will, body and physical energy. The Rikudo's youngest son believed that love 💗 was the key to achieving peace in this world.

Therefore, Rikudo rather supported the ideals of his younger son, rather than the ideals of his eldest son who believed that power was the only true key to finding peace. 🗝️ On his deathbed, Rikudo Sennin designated the youngest of his sons as his successor. The older brother, Indra, was consumed by hatred for having been deprived of what he considered to be his right to inherit ! He then faced Asura, his brother, in a fight to take back from him what he thought was rightfully his. As you will have understood, the Uchiha clan therefore descends from Indra , which led to a great rivalry between the Senju Clan 🌱 and the Uchiha Clan 🌖 over future generations!

History of the Senju Clan:

Madara and Hashirama

The Senju clan gained its fame during the era preceding the founding of the various Hidden Villages. When other clans focused on mastering a particular skill, the Senju were masters of all skills, including ninjutsu, taijutsu and genjutsu. 📜 It is for this reason that they are known as the "clan of a thousand skills" which gave them the name Senju.

The clan's most renowned Shinobi was their commander, Hashirama Senju, whose unique Mokuton 🌳 technique gave the clan the nickname Senju Forest Clan. His ability to control wood, and his ability to control tailed beasts, made him the greatest ninja of his time!

The Senju's place at the top of the ninja world was undisputed , but there was still one clan capable of standing up to them: their rival, the Uchiha clan. 🌙 Whenever a country at war engaged the Senju, its enemies engaged the Uchiha, and vice versa. This led to a rivalry between the two clans and specifically between the clan leaders, Hashirama and Uchiha Madara. However, in a world where blood flows freely, Hashirama desired to establish peace and also possessed an unconditional love for his village. Known as the "Will of Fire", this belief caused the Senju clan to propose a truce with the Uchiha clan .

Tired of fighting, and convinced of Hashirama's great charisma and abilities, the Uchiha 🌙 agreed to stop their bloody rivalry. Only Madara was against this truce, believing that the Senju would one day destroy the Uchiha clan. He was forced to accept, but the humiliation did not stop there . Sometime after the signing of the alliance between the Senju and the Uchiha , Tierra del Fuego hired them to stabilize its borders, and the clans established a permanent colony in the country. Thus, the Leaf 🍁 was founded, and with it, the system of a hidden village in each country.

As wars around the world stopped , the constant violence ceased and Hashirama's dream began to come true. It is likely that Hashirama married Mito Uzumaki around the same time, a powerful kunoichi from the Land of Whirlwinds . 🌪️ The Senju clan of Konoha and the Uzumaki Clan of Uzuchio have always been linked, and this link, despite the extinction of the Remous village, has continued with future generations!

Shortly after Hashirama's election as first Hokage, Madara felt humiliated and decided to leave the village, only to return to attack it using the Kyubi's power. 🦊 The two great ninjas clashed in the Valley of the End, where the legendary statues in front of the waterfall are located. Hashirama will emerge victorious after an exceptional fight. At the start of Naruto's adventures, Hashirama has been dead for over 80 years. He will entrust the title of hokage to his brother, Tobirama before dying. He will have had the opportunity to meet his grandchildren Tsunade and Nawaki, not only that, but he was also the mentor of the 3rd Hokage of Konoha, Hiruzen Sarutobi.

The development of Konoha:


Over the years, the Senju have maintained their supremacy over the village, and made Konoha the village it is today. Following the death of the First Hokage, his younger brother, Tobirama Senju, became the Second Hokage. Although probably not a Senju by blood, 🧬 Hiruzen Sarutobi, would later become the Third Hokage upon the Second Hokage's death. Hiruzen was trained by both Hashirama and Tobirama, that is to say by the first and second Hokage!

His successor, Minato Namikaze, was a student of Jiraiya, who was himself a student of Hiruzen . Tsunade , the Fifth Hokage, was not only a student of Hiruzen, she was also the granddaughter of Hashirama and the niece of Tobirama . All are rooted in following the philosophy of Hashirama and the "Will of Fire". 🔥

The existence of the Senju:

Senju Clan

It is unknown if the Senju clan still exists as an organization as there are no known shinobi with the name Senju alive, although the Fifth Hokage, Tsunade, is Hashirama's granddaughter and brother Nawaki his grandson. It's entirely possible that the Senju clan 🌱 disbanded into different clans and families, mainly because they never had any specific characteristics or techniques like the Uchiha clan or the Hyuga clan that could clearly identify them. Their legacy, however, remains alive and well within the hearts of the Konoha people.

The Mokuton of the Senju clan

Hashirama Mokuton

Mokuton is a special technique allowing the art manipulation of wood and more generally of nature. This Ninjutsu was created by Hashirama Senju . It seems that wood niinjutsu has a particular impact on tailed demons as well as their hosts! The nature of this ninjutsu would have a power of inhibition against the different Bijû . 👹 Nature is a powerful element because if the power of the earth is combined with the fluidity of water, it is then possible to hinder the shinobi, infiltrate with subtlety, control an enraged bijû or even build a very robust. regarding the possibilities that can be used outside of combat, they are in reality infinite, because the Mokuton allows you to alter the environment and create entire forests! 🌲

The Senju Clan's Gene Experiments

Hashirama DNA

Orochimaru , as part of an experiment, performed a transplant of Hashirama Senju's DNA on the equivalent of 60 children, with the prospect that one of them would acquire the inheritance of the Kekkei Genkai, Mokuton. There was only one survivor: Yamato , current main user of Mokuton, 🌳 but less powerful than Hashirama Senju (First Hokage). Orochimaru proceeded in a similar manner for Damzô Shimura's transplant. However, Danzo used Mokuton's Genkai Kekkai as little as possible, as this transplant quickly depletes its user's chakra, potentially being able to quickly take over its host's body.

When Madara was hit by the Tsuchikage Jutsu, during the war between him and the world, he revealed that Hashirama's face had been grafted onto his chest . 😟 However Kabuto clarified that this graft had been done in a different way than the one carried out on Danzo's shoulder. And that made the Edo Tensei invincible!
