History:
The granddaughter of the First Hokage, Tsunade was taught by the Third Hokage when she was a Genin. Later in life she would lose her younger brother Nawaki and her boyfriend Dan in battles. These two events made Tsunade distraught. Both men had stated before they died that they dreamed of becoming Hokage. This made her feel such a desire was foolish, driving people to take actions they shouldn't. As she aged Tsunade began to use jutsu to alter her appearance and always appear in her twenties.

She and her apprentice Shizune left Konoha behind and traveled the Fire country to satisfy Tsunade's gambling addiction. It was during this period she was approached by Orochimaru for help. Orochimaru told her that in exchange for her healing his damaged body, he would bring her boyfriend and little brother back from the dead. Tsunade was given a week to determine what she wished to do, during this period she was tracked down by Jiraiya and Naruto to ask her to be the new Fifth Hokage.

She felt the position was not worth the trouble and that it is only a fools desire to take the job. Tsunade was tempted at first to help Orochimaru, but the honesty and determination Naruto exhibited in facing Orochimaru and his strong desire to become Hokage reaffirmed her loyalty to Leaf. It quickly became a three-way Sannin brawl with Orochimaru, Tsunade and Jiraiya fighting. Orochimaru was defeated and he retreated. Tsunade then accepted the offer and became the Fifth Hokage. She thanked Naruto and challenged him to never give up his dream to replace her some day.

When Tsunade formally became Hokage she and Naruto shared a tenuous relationship. Naruto often became frustrated with the respect she gave him when assigning missions; however she never really lost faith in the boy. When Naruto came back to Konoha after training with Jiraiya, her advisors recommended Naruto be kept within the village to protect him from Akatsuki. Tsunade believed Naruto could handle himself and his history as a Jinchuuriki meant he was best suited to help others like him in the world. Only time will tell whether this important decision as village leader will be the best for Konoha...

Tsunade is going to have a hassle handling the actions of Orochimaru, Sasuke, Akatsuki, and newly added to the list Danzou. I wonder what she'll say after Yamato and the others come back to Konoha with the report of the "alliance".
I expect her to be a great Hokage and save Konoha with her life, living the dream of her boyfriend and brother.

I was mightily impressed when I first met Tsunade... one of the few female characters to that point who'd impressed me with physical strength and confidence, which most of the other girls seemed to have been lacking (most have changed since then, of course). I was, however, a bit disappointed she was a mopey, gambling drunk.

Tsunade continues to impress me, however, and not just with her physical strength (mind-boggling though it is) but her character. She fits in nicely with Iruka and Sandaime as a stern mother-figure to Naruto (scary as that thought may be) and will hopefully continue to help shape his developement, as well as Sakura's, into fine ninjas.

I suspect she is on a fatal course in the series, however. Not only because she would gamble her life to save Konoha, or anyone who lived there (a likely possibility, given the growing number of Konoha enemies), but because Shizune said her forbidden technique healed all her injuries at the cost of shortening her lifespan. And she's already none-too-young, despite her appearance.

I like Tsunade, she is almost immortal. She has super strength and and can heal herself in seconds, its too bad that can kill her. If it wasn't for that then, yea she would be practically immortal. She is probably my third or fourth favortie out of the Five Hokage's. I wonder who would be Kage if she refused, again. I also don't see her dying by any of the enemys, not Danzou, Orochimaru or even Akatsuki. If she does die it would be more of a assassination that we wouldn't see, not a battle. I don't want her to die though.

i wonder what type of ninjutsu she is using. we havent seen a lot of her abilities. We only know that she is great in taijutsu cause she is soooo strong. What i dislike about her: her personal summons... fighting slugs? except the acid, they must be almost useless...

Tsunade is really cool! At first I didn't like her, but now I do!!! I think it's great that we finally have a female Kage. And it looks really cool seeing her head on the stone next to Yondaime. Of course, Kakashi should be the sixth Hokage (note: THIS IS A JOKE), but for now, Tsunade will do. ;)

Tsunade and Shizune were the first kunoichi that were well developed and not weak. I always wondered how close Tsunade was to agreeing to Oro's proposal. Was she seriously considering sacrificing Jiraiya? (Now that I think about it, maybe Sasuke can resurrect his parents!)
I like her slug, it can break up into hundreds of slugs, that's actually harder to defeat than one huge enemy.
I do expect her to die before the end of the series.

Tsunade is quite well rounded in her jutsus. The fact that she can constantly keep up her age genjutsu and have it affect even Jiraya and Orochimaru tells you something. She can use Gamabunta's swords, her most basic healing jutsu is A-ranked, and she can call out the chief slug summon, who unlike Manda and Gamabunta isn't a major killing force(except for the whole acid thing) but is awesome for support. She is one of the few "powerful" Kuinoichi(Kishimoto has a bad habit of underpowering female ninja the sexist bastard) and wears the title of hokage well.

Well, that's one way to phrase Kishimoto's whole "weak females" thing, the1790.... Her summon is a little weird, but it's really funny too! ;)

Tsunade is awesome and the first female Hokage :D, maybe even first female Kage O.o

I wonder if Kishimoto at the end of the series will show Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke grown up, Naruto in front of Jiraiya, Sakura in front of Tsunade, Sasuke in front of Orochimaru, and like Sasuke is lke the new Orochimaru, Naruto the new Jiraiya, Sakura the new Tsunade... x.x that would be pretty cool IMO

Did Tsunade pay off all her gambling debts? If not it would be pretty funny to have a Hokage declare bankruptcy. Even though she could probably just kick the collectors ass.

Tsunade is cool, even though the fear of blood thing was kind of stupid for a medic nin.

Oh, it's stupid is it?

Imagine yourself drenched in your loved one's blood and then imagine the person dying as you were desperately trying to save his life.

I think that's enough to make you develop an aversion to blood.

^Yessiree! hemophobia was an obstacle that Tsunads was able to overcome, making her a stronger(no pun intended) entity. Tsunade is an amazing character. She is made so that she is hot, funny, and a strong fighter. Responsibility is one thing though that she lacks.

I completely agree with you! I would definitely pass out, and I'm not even a known hemophobic! Tsunade's really brave! :lol:

Sure the blood might be of a loved one, but aren't doctors supposed to be able to deal with this kind of stuff? Maybe she didn't have someone to train her emotionally like doctors do, so I understand your point.

It might not be so much the blood itself as an unconcious association with the death of her boyfriend.

Yeah, I mean, Sarutobi doesn't seem like an emotionless medical nin, so with the information about Tsunade's teachers we have so far, we can conclude that she probably didn't have anyone to teach her out of (for lack of better phrase) her fear of blood.

I don't think Sarutobi was a medical nin. Which raises the question: How did Tsunade learn all her medical jutsu without a teacher? She is a Sannin, so maybe she developed them on her own?

Emotional training or not, we can't control our emotions. Tsunade lost her little brother then her lover. No amount of training in the world could ever prepare you for that.

Tsunade is my least favourite character. She's the master of Medical-Nin beside Shizune.

A very good question! You wonder who taught her those skills....

Oh, and I wasn't very clear, but when I said "Sarutobi doesn't seem like an emotionless medical nin" I didn't mean that he was a medical nin, I meant that he wasn't the emotionless "so what if it's blood" type.
