Because of Amegakure's location between three of the [[Five Great Shinobi Countries]], it has frequently served as a battleground during the various ninja wars, making most of its population war refugees. Amegakure has adopted a heavy isolationist policy because of this, leading to the village's defences being abnormally impenetrable. To be admitted to the village, visitors, even those coming for [[Chūnin Exams]] held in Amegakure, must go through a number of security checks and are under constant surveillance during their stay.
For many years, Amegakure was led by [[Hanzō]]; he led Amegakure's forces against [[Konohagakure]] during the [[Second Shinobi World War]]. Despite the fact that Hanzō had a huge presence on the battlefield, such that he slaughtered an entire Konoha platoon and allowed ninja as powerful as the young [[Sannin]] to live when they managed to hold their own against him, Amegakure lost the war.

Even Hanzō, despite his strength was paranoid and constantly feared being assassinated and as such was rarely seen in public.
 
   
During the [[Third Shinobi World War]], a [[Ame Orphans|group]] from Amegakure began advocating peace. When their [[Akatsuki|group became large and popular]] enough, seeing this as a threat to his rule, Hanzō allied with [[Danzō Shimura]] of [[Konohagakure]] to have them eliminated. Hanzō lured them to an ambush by claiming to be interested in their ideas and [[Yahiko]], the group's public leader was killed. [[Nagato]] tried to take revenge on Hanzō, but succeeded only in killing the other Amegakure ninja present as well as all of Danzō's [[Root]] personnel as both men escaped the slaughter.

Amegakure was led for many years by [[Hanzō]], a notoriously powerful shinobi; during the [[Second Shinobi World War]] he slaughtered an entire [[Konoha]] platoon, sparing only the young [[Sannin]]. Despite his power, Hanzō was deeply paranoid and would rarely appear in public for fear of being assassinated. When, during the [[Third Shinobi World War]], a group called [[Akatsuki]] began advocating for peace between the warring Konoha, [[Iwa]], and [[Suna]], Hanzō interpreted this as a threat to his rule. (In the anime, this fear was exacerbated by Konoha's [[Danzō Shimura]].) Claiming to be interested in cooperating with Akatsuki, Hanzō, with support from Danzō, ambushed Akatsuki's three primary members and attempted to kill them all. After Akatsuki's leader, [[Yahiko]], died, [[Nagato]] retaliated and slaughtered all of Hanzō's men, though Hanzō himself escaped.
   
Nagato, adopting the alias of ''[[Pain]]'', soon began a civil war within Amegakure. Forces loyal to his new ideas for the village wore an Amegakure headband with a horizontal slash through the middle, showing their rejection of the former Amegakure leadership and principles. Pain eventually single-handedly killed Hanzō as well as everyone even remotely affiliated with him. He similarly slaughters any remnants loyal to Hanzō that tried to sneak back into the village to assassinate him. Pain's effectiveness has caused the villagers of Amegakure to regard him as a god. The people of Amegakure began to refer to Pain as "Lord Pain", and to [[Konan]] who assisted Pain, as "Lady Angel".

With Pain's near-godly power and rumours that he was [[Six Paths of Pain|multiple people]], Hanzō and his forces were overthrown, with Pain being the one to personally kill Hanzō.

Knowledge of Amegakure's civil war was not common throughout the ninja world, and the fate of Hanzō himself was completely unknown to the point that other villages believed him to still be in charge. Because Pain uses the village as his base of operations for [[Akatsuki]], [[Jiraiya]] was able to spread news of these developments during the course of his investigation into the organisation. Pain later went to [[Konohagakure]] to try to capture [[Naruto]] and the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox]] respectively, after killing Jiraiya. He effectively destroys the majority of Konoha's infrastructure and kills many of its citizens. Later, he is convinced by Naruto's determination and ideals so he decides to revive those who he recently killed using the [[Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique]]. In this village it rains almost constantly except for when Pain would stop the rain. The only natural incidence of the rain ending was during Konan's fight with [[Tobi]] who had come to retrieve the [[Rinnegan]]. After Konan's death, however, it is unknown who leads the village.

Amegakure (雨隠れの里, Amegakure no Sato, Literally meaning: Village Hidden by Rain) is a small but highly industrialised hidden village located in an unnamed country. As its name suggests, it rains almost constantly in Amegakure and the surrounding area. All the water seemingly ends in a large lake that surrounds the village.

Ame ninja are said to be notoriously short tempered,[1] while their village trains them to their fullest potential, resulting in the creation of many original techniques.[2] Ame is frequently hired for assassination missions, an area of expertise prized by many countries.[3] A common trait of shinobi from this village is wearing rebreathers.

History Edit

Because of Amegakure's location between three of the Five Great Shinobi Countries, it has frequently served as a battleground during the various ninja wars, making most of its population war refugees. Amegakure has adopted a heavy isolationist policy because of this, leading to the village's defences being abnormally impenetrable. To be admitted to the village, visitors, even those coming for Chūnin Exams held in Amegakure, must go through a number of security checks and are under constant surveillance during their stay.

Amegakure was led for many years by Hanzō, a notoriously powerful shinobi; during the Second Shinobi World War he slaughtered an entire Konoha platoon, sparing only the young Sannin. Despite his power, Hanzō was deeply paranoid and would rarely appear in public for fear of being assassinated. When, during the Third Shinobi World War, a group called Akatsuki began advocating for peace between the warring Konoha, Iwa, and Suna, Hanzō interpreted this as a threat to his rule. (In the anime, this fear was exacerbated by Konoha's Danzō Shimura.) Claiming to be interested in cooperating with Akatsuki, Hanzō, with support from Danzō, ambushed Akatsuki's three primary members and attempted to kill them all. After Akatsuki's leader, Yahiko, died, Nagato retaliated and slaughtered all of Hanzō's men, though Hanzō himself escaped.

Pain confronts Hanzō

Pain overthrows Hanzō, taking control of Amegakure.

At some point after the end of the war, a civil war broke out in the village to remove Hanzō from power. Led by an individual known only as "Pain", the rebel faction symbolised their rejection of Hanzō by placing a horizontal slash across their forehead protector. With Pain's near-godly power and rumours that he was multiple people, Hanzō and his forces were overthrown, with Pain being the one to personally kill Hanzō. Pain then went on to kill anyone even remotely connected to Hanzō, from close family to distant acquaintances, so that none would ever emerge to take revenge. Despite this, loyalists to Hanzō still emerged from time to time, though all were crushed by Pain.

Pain (real name Nagato) became Ame's new leader, revered as a god by the populace because of his contributions during the civil. None ever saw Pain directly, his decrees instead communicated to Ame's citizen's by his "angel", Konan, who came to be revered almost as highly as Pain himself. The only thing that Ame's citizens could conclusively say about Pain was that he stopped the perpetual rain every Sunday and whenever he had to leave the village.[4] Knowledge of Amegakure's civil war was not common throughout the ninja world, and news of Pain's victory was completely unknown to the point that other villages believed Hanzō to still be in charge. In the anime, Ame ninja travelling abroad are instructed to perpetuate this belief.

Pain uses Amegakure as his base of operations for his work with Akatsuki. Jiraiya, in the course of his investigation into Akatsuki, infiltrates the village and, upon being discovered, is killed by Pain. Despite this, he is able to get word of recent events in Ame back to Konoha, which Pain tries to prevent from spreading further, among other reasons, by destroying Konoha. Pain ultimately dies in Konoha, giving his life to aid Naruto Uzumaki's aspirations for peace. Konan becomes the new leader of Amegakure after Pain's death and swears Ame's support to Naruto's cause. She is shortly afterwards killed in Ame by Tobi.

In Shikamaru Hiden, set several years after the Fourth Shinobi World War, Ame is invited to join the Shinobi Union.
