'''Sage Mode''' is the result of using [[natural energy]] along with a ninja's normal [[chakra]] to drastically empower all their abilities.
+
'''Sage Mode''' is an empowered state that can be entered by blending [[natural energy]] with one's [[chakra]], creating [[senjutsu chakra]]. Sage Mode allows users to tap into the natural force of the world, opening up new techniques to them and allowing them to power up existing ones with the new senjutsu chakra.

[[Image:Perfect Balance.PNG|thumb|left|Jiraiya training to master senjutsu.]]
A prerequisite to being able to use senjutsu is that the user must have a large reservoir of chakra themselves in order to manipulate the natural energy.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 412, page 11</ref>
+
Sage Mode is known to be taught in two places: at [[Mount Myōboku]] by the [[toads]] and at [[Ryūchi Cave]] by the [[snakes]]. Users of Sage Mode must possess "extreme chakra levels" to invoke senjutsu.<ref>Chapter 412, page 11</ref> It is also important that their bodies be strong enough to support the increased power.<ref>Chapter 579, pages 16-17</ref>
   
== Toad Sage Mode ==
+
In order to enter Sage Mode, the gatherer must remain absolutely still in order to be one with nature and balance the natural energy with their own physical and spiritual energies.<ref>Chapter 409, page 12</ref> If the user puts too little natural energy into using senjutsu, the technique will not work.<ref>Chapter 410, page 15</ref> Conversely, if too much natural energy is taken in, their body will turn to stone forever; humans will also be transformed into whichever animal's school the senjutsu was learned from.<ref>Chapters 409-410</ref>
=== Advantages ===
 
Taught and learned by the toads, the advantages afforded to those who study senjutsu from the toads include:
 
* The user's physical strength, speed, [[Chakra|stamina]], reflexes, and durability dramatically increase.
 
* The user's [[ninjutsu]], [[genjutsu]], and [[taijutsu]] become more powerful.
 
* The user can [[Frog Kata|harness]] the natural energy surrounding them, turning it into an extension of their body, which increases the reach of their attacks.
 
* The user gains the ability to [[Sensor|sense]] [[chakra]] around them.
 
   
=== Disadvantages ===
+
The toads of Mount Myōboku have devised several tools to make learning Sage Mode easier. By applying a special oil, the applicant's body will start passively taking in natural energy. This oil will evaporate if taken outside Mount Myōboku, thus rendering it useful only for learning purposes. The toads also have a special staff that, when struck with, knocks all the natural energy out of the gatherer, thus reversing any transformations before they can become permanent and the user turns to stone.
There are a few disadvantages while using this mode as well, these include:
 
* If the user draws in too much natural energy, they run the risk of transforming into a toad, then into stone. If the petrification is completed, it cannot be reversed.
 
* In order to gather enough natural energy to initiate the transformation into Sage Mode, the user must remain perfectly still. Because of that, the user can be an easy target for an opponent.
 
* Because the user needs to move during combat, the senjutsu chakra cannot be replenished, which means the user can't stay within this state for extended periods of time.
 
** The second and third weaknesses mentioned above can be bypassed through the [[Sage Art: Amphibian Technique]], where one Sage gathers chakra for another or as in [[Naruto]]'s case, shadow clones can be used for the same purpose.
 
* After Sage Mode has ended, the user appears to experience exhaustion.
 
   
=== Forms ===
+
At Ryūchi Cave, one must call upon the esoteric teachings of the [[White Snake Sage]], who bites the person with its fangs and injects them with natural energy. According to legend, if one's body is strong enough to withstand this snake transformation, it will accept the power without reservation, thus granting the person Sage Mode.<ref>Fourth Databook, page 136</ref>
==== Imperfect Toad Sage Mode ====
 
[[File:Sennin Moodo.png|thumb|left|Jiraiya in an imperfect Sage Mode, causing noticeable toad-like facial and bodily alterations.]]
 
[[Jiraiya]] was not able to completely balance his own chakra with natural energy, resulting in him using an imperfect form of Sage Mode. As a result of the imbalance (and the imperfect nature of his transformation), Jiraiya took a number of toad-like traits when using Sage Mode. His appearance was altered: his nose grows bigger and gains warts, he gains excess hair (his goatee), and toad-like eyes. Further transformational attributes includes him taking on a toad-like stature and the lines on his face become much thicker, taking over each side of his face. Because of these traits, Jiraiya didn't like to use Sage Mode as it "displeased the ladies". He also showed the ability to transform his limbs (e.g. his hands and feet) into those of frogs so as to aid in manoeuvrability.
 
   
In order to get around the danger of remaining stationary during a battle to re-enter Sage Mode, Jiraiya would summon [[Shima]] and [[Fukasaku]] by drawing a blood contract on his face.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 375, page 1</ref> The Two Great Sage Toads would fuse to Jiraiya's shoulders with the [[Sage Art: Amphibian Technique]], gathering natural energy from their stationary positions on Jiraiya's shoulders for him to use.

;Advantages
  +
* The user's physical strength, speed, [[Chakra|stamina]], reflexes, perception, and durability are enhanced.
  +
* The user's [[ninjutsu]], [[genjutsu]], and [[taijutsu]] become more powerful.
  +
* The user can manipulate the natural energy that surrounds them, turning it into an [[Frog Kata|extension]] of their body to increase the reach of their attacks.
  +
* The user can [[Sensor|sense]] [[chakra]] around them and can sense attacks without the need to see them.
  +
* When facing an opponent that can drain chakra, this can prove to be fatal to the opponent if they absorbed too much chakra and will be turned to stone if they haven't had training with Sage Mode in the past. Furthermore, the user of Sage Mode can hold still to absorb more natural energy for the opponent to absorb and turn their own chakra absorption against them.

;Disadvantages
[[File:Naruto AnimeSagemode.png|thumb|Naruto in "true" Sage Mode.]]
+
* In order to gather enough natural energy to initiate the transformation into Sage Mode, the user must remain perfectly still, leaving them vulnerable. Users have at times been shown entering Sage Mode without this preparation.<ref>Chapter 535, page 5</ref><ref>Chapter 665, page 14</ref>
Unlike Jiraiya, [[Naruto Uzumaki]] is able to perfectly balance the natural energy with his own chakra. This allows him to use Sage Mode in perfect balance, which allows him to retain all of his normal physical characteristics except for toad-like eyes: yellow irides<!--irises are flowers -->, horizontal bar-like pupils, and reddish-orange pigmentation around the eyes; the mark of a true sage on each eye. A true sage would still suffer from the weaknesses of Sage Mode, requiring that they use [[Sage Art: Amphibian Technique]] in a battle situation. Because of the animosity of the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox]] sealed within Naruto, however, Fukasaku was rejected whenever he tried to fuse with him.
+
* Because the user needs to move during combat, the senjutsu chakra cannot be replenished, which means the user can't stay within this state for extended periods of time. Naruto states it is possible to lengthen the time limit.<ref>Chapter 468, page 16</ref>
  +
** These weaknesses can be bypassed with the [[Sage Art: Amphibian Technique]], where one or more toads fuses with the user's shoulders and gather natural energy for them to use.
  +
** Another option is to employ [[shadow clone]]s, having them gather natural energy elsewhere and then, when their natural energy is needed, having them disperse, transferring it to the original. This limits the number shadow clones that the user can have active at a time to five for as long as the clones are gathering natural energy, as any more than that would disrupt the clone's focus.
  +
** [[Kabuto Yakushi]] assimilated the DNA of [[Jūgo]] to replicate his [[Jūgo's Clan|clan]]'s ability to [[Sage Transformation|passively absorb]] natural energy, thus allowing him to continuously collect the energy even while moving, bypassing these particular weaknesses.
  +
** If the user is also a jinchūriki that has achieved harmony with their tailed beast, they can drastically speed up their ability to gather natural energy in tailed beast mode to the point of only needing a few seconds to fully charge or recharge their sage chakra.
   
As a workaround, Naruto has some of his [[shadow clones]] gather natural energy elsewhere while he fights. Once he has run out of his own senjutsu chakra, he [[Reverse Summoning Technique|reverse summons]] the clone and has them disperse, giving him the clone's natural energy and allowing him to enter Sage Mode again. This method limits the maximum number of shadow clones that Naruto can create to five for as long as the clones are gathering natural energy, as anything more would interfere with their focus. To make sure he has enough shadow clones for use in battle, Naruto has only two shadow clones gather senjutsu chakra, allowing him to enter Sage Mode a total of three times. Naruto has also stated that it is possible to lengthen the time he is in Sage Mode.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 468, page 16</ref> Naruto's skill in senjutsu has increased to the point that it doesn't take him nearly as long to enter Sage Mode.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 535, page 5</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 555, pages 10-11</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 560, page 11</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 610, page 6</ref>

Users

Sage Mode is an empowered state that can be entered by blending natural energy with one's chakra, creating senjutsu chakra. Sage Mode allows users to tap into the natural force of the world, opening up new techniques to them and allowing them to power up existing ones with the new senjutsu chakra.

Training Edit

Perfect Balance

Jiraiya training to master senjutsu.

Sage Mode is known to be taught in two places: at Mount Myōboku by the toads and at Ryūchi Cave by the snakes. Users of Sage Mode must possess "extreme chakra levels" to invoke senjutsu.[2] It is also important that their bodies be strong enough to support the increased power.[3]

In order to enter Sage Mode, the gatherer must remain absolutely still in order to be one with nature and balance the natural energy with their own physical and spiritual energies.[4] If the user puts too little natural energy into using senjutsu, the technique will not work.[5] Conversely, if too much natural energy is taken in, their body will turn to stone forever; humans will also be transformed into whichever animal's school the senjutsu was learned from.[6]

The toads of Mount Myōboku have devised several tools to make learning Sage Mode easier. By applying a special oil, the applicant's body will start passively taking in natural energy. This oil will evaporate if taken outside Mount Myōboku, thus rendering it useful only for learning purposes. The toads also have a special staff that, when struck with, knocks all the natural energy out of the gatherer, thus reversing any transformations before they can become permanent and the user turns to stone.

At Ryūchi Cave, one must call upon the esoteric teachings of the White Snake Sage, who bites the person with its fangs and injects them with natural energy. According to legend, if one's body is strong enough to withstand this snake transformation, it will accept the power without reservation, thus granting the person Sage Mode.[7]

Attributes Edit

Advantages
  • The user's physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, perception, and durability are enhanced.
  • The user's ninjutsu, genjutsu, and taijutsu become more powerful.
  • The user can manipulate the natural energy that surrounds them, turning it into an extension of their body to increase the reach of their attacks.
  • The user can sense chakra around them and can sense attacks without the need to see them.
  • When facing an opponent that can drain chakra, this can prove to be fatal to the opponent if they absorbed too much chakra and will be turned to stone if they haven't had training with Sage Mode in the past.

  • In order to gather enough natural energy to initiate the transformation into Sage Mode, the user must remain perfectly still, leaving them vulnerable. Users have at times been shown entering Sage Mode without this preparation.[8][9]
  • Because the user needs to move during combat, the senjutsu chakra cannot be replenished, which means the user can't stay within this state for extended periods of time. Naruto states it is possible to lengthen the time limit.[10]
    • These weaknesses can be bypassed with the Sage Art: Amphibian Technique, where one or more toads fuses with the user's shoulders and gather natural energy for them to use.
    • Another option is to employ shadow clones, having them gather natural energy elsewhere and then, when their natural energy is needed, having them disperse, transferring it to the original.

Forms Edit

Imperfected Sage Mode Edit

Sennin Moodo

Jiraiya in an imperfect form of Sage Mode, with noticeable toad-like facial and bodily alterations.

Jiraiya is not able to properly balance his own chakra with natural energy, resulting in him using an imperfect form of Sage Mode. As a result of the imbalance, Jiraiya takes a number of toad-like traits when using Sage Mode: his nose grows bigger and gains warts, his teeth turn sharp, he grows a goatee, and acquires toad-like eyes. Because of these traits, Jiraiya doesn't like to use Sage Mode as it "displeased the ladies". Some of the physical alterations, such as the toad posture and the webbed feet, are beneficial and improve his manoeuvrability, and he can consciously manifest the alterations in order to take advantage of them.

Although he never mastered Sage Mode, Jiraiya still gains all the advantages of Sage Mode, although his enhancements are more limited by comparison to perfected practitioners.

Perfected Sage Mode Edit

Users that can properly balance their own chakra with natural energy will not experience any animalistic transformations to their body. The one exception is a dark pigmentation around their eyes and the eyes themselves, which usually differ based on where the user learned Sage Mode:

  • Naruto and Minato have yellow, toad-like irides with orange pigmentation around their eyes (red in the Naruto: Colour Edition).
  • Kabuto has yellow, snake-like irides and blackened sclerae, as well as purple pigmentation around his eyes that extends down to his shoulder blades. His snake-like characteristics progress further in Sage Mode with him growing four horns, leading him to state that he had metaphorically transcended from a "snake" to a "dragon".
  • Hashirama has yellow irides with black (red in Naruto: Colour Edition) pigmentation around his eyes that extends to his ears, as well as a marking on his forehead that resembles an eye.

Tailed Beast Sage Mode Edit

TBM combines with SM

Naruto's Tailed Beast Sage Mode.

After earning the Nine-Tails' cooperation, Naruto becomes able to combine Sage Mode with his Tailed Beast Mode. The red irides turn orange, and the slitted pupils characteristic of normal Nine-Tails transformations merge with the Sage Mode's eye pattern, creating a design reminiscent of a cross. The design of Naruto's shroud also changes. While using the combined form, Naruto gains simultaneous access to both forms' advantages, such as augmenting Tailed Beast Balls with senjutsu chakra.[11] Advantages common to both forms (such as increases to strength and chakra reserves) are elevated beyond what either form grants individually.

Six Paths Sage Mode Edit

Naruto&#039;s SPSM

Naruto's Six Paths Sage Mode.

Main article: Six Paths Sage Mode The Six Paths Sage Mode (六道仙人モード, Rikudō Sennin Mōdo) is a heightened state of Sage Mode, which drastically empowers the user's abilities to a far greater extent by utilising the Six Paths Sage Chakra. During the technique's activation, the user transformation is virtually indistinguishable from their base form. Upon its activation, Naruto's eyes become yellow, with his pupils taking on a cross-like shape traits of his combination of Sage Mode and Kurama Mode, without manifesting the orange pigmentation around his eyes.[12]

Techniques Edit

Trivia Edit

  • In Naruto the Movie: Blood Prison, the red coat Naruto wore during Pain's Assault appears when he enters Sage Mode and disappears when he turns back to normal.
  • The manifestation of animal like traits is a reference to the Japanese folktale Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari, where Jiraiya, Tsunade, and Orochimaru came to study specific animal magic into their ninjutsu use.
