Tobirama Senju

Tobirama Senju

Tobirama Senju is a ninja from the Naruto anime series and manga. He was the second Hokage of the Hidden Village of Konoha 🍁 and was from the founding Senju clan who, along with the Uchiha clan, founded the Hidden Leaf Village.

Tobirama's story

Tobirama is a member of the Senju clan, but also the little brother of Hashirama, the head of the Senju clan. When Hashirama died, Tobirama was designated as the Second Hokage of Konoha . During his reign, he developed the organization and the village of Konoha.

To do this, he set up various organizations such as the Academy, the ANBU, the Chunin exams and the Police, 👮‍♂️ the latter having been created as a sign of trust in the Uchiha Clan which constituted the majority of this organization. However, according to Madara , the police force was actually created in an attempt to create some distance from the Uchiha clan, as it was in reality closely monitored by the ANBU service.

During his tenure, he meets with the Raikage ⚡ to form a formal alliance between the Hidden Cloud and the Leaf Village; however, Kinkaku and Ginkaku, the Gold and Silver Brothers, attempt a coup against the Raikage and Tobirama. Tobirama realized that the only way any of them could escape alive was to act as a decoy, and he chose to sacrifice himself in order to save the group as well as Hiruzen . He also entrusted the village of Konoha to his student who is none other than the fourth Hokage.

Homura and Koharu would later become Hiruzen's advisors. After giving the title of Hokage to Hiruzen, Tobirama left to fight the enemies, where he died a noble death in battle, ☠️ continuing his brother's teachings "the will of fire".

He had a good sense of humor, even under stress. Just like his brother, Tobirama was very loyal towards his people and put the well-being of Konoha before his own. Tobirama trusted himself and did not doubt his abilities. He was a dynamic character who enjoyed fighting and was very courageous. The second Hokage believed in the future 🔮 generation of Konoha shinobi. Defender of the will of fire, Tobirama held resentment towards the Uchiha Clan, guilty of the deaths of his brothers. According to Hashirama, Tobirama was a manipulative person and it also tended to annoy him!


Tobirama's official outfit was recognizable by his blue armor , his spiky gray hair, his red eyes as well as the three red marks arranged on his face. He proudly wears on his metal helmet, an emblem of Konoha 🍁 and has a collar of fur around the neck. Aside from his ninja outfit, Tobirama, wore a simple kimono, 👘 a blue shirt held together by a pale yellow belt, and pants with mesh armor underneath, not to mention his lucky bracelet in his left hand.

Tobirama's Skills

According to young Danzo, Tobirama was considered to be the Konoha's strongest shinobi of his time , since the death 💀 of his brother, Hashirama. He was also considered by his people as worthy of becoming Hashirama's successor as Hokage. He unfortunately died during the First Great Shinobi War. ⚔️ Tobirama was a A shinobi with a high IQ , very strong strategically, he was able to think and react quickly in critical situations.


Mudra: Naruto

Tobirama is known as the greatest inventor of Naruto Jutsu! Indeed, his Jutsu have had positive and negative impacts in the Naruto saga. He created for example: Multi-cloning, The God of Flying Thunder and The Reincarnation of Souls.

Sensory abilities

Tobirama was a Sensory Hokage , meaning he was able to sense the sources of chakra surrounding him. Additionally, by simply touching the earth with his index finger, Tobirama could detect 🔍 the presence and number of enemy ninjas, or obtain information very quickly thanks to his ability.

He stood out for his excellent mastery of the water Jutsu, the Suiton . Tobirama was able to use powerful water-type abilities in areas that did not have a source or water point, 🌊 which made him the best user of the Suiton in the Naruto saga.

Space-time ninjutsu

There are few users capable of using space-time abilities, however Tobirama is one of the best! This jutsu allows him to obtain great mobility in combat and to teleport quickly and thus surprise the enemy.


Kenjutsu Tobirama

According to the anime, Tobirama also wielded the Sword of the Lightning God , 🌩️ a blade with electrical abilities. This sword was strong enough to deal with a Chidori or a Rasengan. We can therefore imagine a lot of possible combos with his Suiton ability! He is also known for his great physical dexterity and considerable skills in taijutsu, as well as his teamwork with his older brother, Hashirama Senju.

Suiton: the element of water

Tobirama Suiton

Tobirama was an excellent user of Suiton, 🌊 he was also capable of using water ninjutsu without a source nearby! He was so good that he would have been able to use the Suiton in desert locations such as in the desert of the land of the wind. In reality, Tobirama was manipulating the micro-droplets present in the air 💦! Absolute master of Suiton jutsu, more powerful than Zabuza or even Kisame. In addition to being able to manipulate micro-droplets, he could also manipulate their shapes. But his genius does not stop there, he was for example capable of using the Watery Dragon Suiton Jutsu and to reduce the number of 40 mudrâs to be performed in only 3 mudrâ 👉 (seals performed with the hands). Tobirama can for example counter all the jutsu around the Katon.

Reincarnation of souls

Reincarnation of souls

This ability is undoubtedly the most powerful among the Kinjutsu panel. existing from the entire manga. Few shinobi are capable of mastering this dangerous Kinjutsu, ☢️ to our knowledge, only Kabuto and his sensei Orichimaru are capable of using it.

Tobirama is the creator of the Soul Reincarnation jutsu , a forbidden ability that has the ability to bring humans back to life in exchange for other lives. These people, brought back to life, would be actually immortal and submissive to the user of this jutsu. After realizing how dangerous his own Jutsu was, Tobirama stopped its development. However, the best user of the Reincarnation of Souls ability is Kabuto, the medical ninja 💊 associated with Orochimaru. Kabuto would imply within the anime that he would have succeeded in evolving this Kinjutsu to a level never matched by its creator and by Orochimaru.

It is important to specify that unlike a classic ninjutsu, this forbidden jutsu does not dissipate , even if its user dies. In addition, even if a reanimated shinobi suffers damage, 💥 his body regenerates almost instantly and automatically. It is also important to note that talismans allow the summoner to be able to manipulate a ninja who has been reanimated without constraint, because these talismans remove the free will of the summons.

Explanation of this technique: the user of the reincarnation of souls introduces behind the heads of the reanimated, different talismans-kunaïs containing their own DNA 🧬 in order to restore their strength, their appearances and their period techniques. Reincarnated Shinobis therefore retain their range of techniques (Genjutsu, taijutsu and ninjutsu) as well as their hereditary techniques (Kekkai Genkai) that they used while alive! According to our information, the only way to stop this technique is to seal the reincarnations one by one!

Scalar Entanglement of Scrolls

Scalar Entanglement of Scrolls

Tobirama invented this ninjutsu to combine it with his "Reincarnation of Souls" technique . Its principle is very simple, the goal is to allow an invocation to in turn summon explosive scrolls, and these same explosives are duplicated in order to create a chain reaction of explosions. 💣Scalar Entangle Summoner cannot survive this ability, so Tobirama wanted to use invulnerable summons .
