The Sannin are comprised of the three genin from '''Team Hiruzen''' — a [[genin]] team led by [[Hiruzen Sarutobi]]. When the team was formed, the three genin were only six years old and Hiruzen was already the Third [[Hokage]]; they used the [[bell test]] to serve as their promotion to genin. When the three shinobi were promoted, as customary, the team disbanded. The three would however work together during the [[Second Shinobi World War]]. During their battle with [[Hanzō]] of [[Amegakure]], according to Hanzō himself, the three put up a courageous battle against him. Having survived the battle, Hanzō named them, as a reward, earning them the title {{translation|'''Sannin'''|伝説の三忍|Densetsu no Sannin|lit meaning=Legendary Three Ninja}} of [[Konohagakure]]. The three would later become legends in the shinobi world, though the Sannin as a team dissolved with Orochimaru's defection from the village.

Before they were the Sannin, the three were students of [[Hiruzen Sarutobi]], the Third [[Hokage]]. When the team was first formed and they were fresh [[genin]], Hiruzen gave them a [[bell test]] to test their skills; Jiraiya failed to get a bell, and was tied to a stump as punishment. During their time under Hiruzen's tutelage they all learned to use the [[Summoning Technique]], which they performed with their left hand. Despite being a team and having accomplished great things together, the three members were always in constant disagreement with one another, which Tsunade referred to as, "the three-way deadlock." Once they became skilled ninja able to look after themselves, Hiruzen's team disbanded.

Despite the official dissolution of their team, the three continued to work together during the [[Second Shinobi World War]]. During one battle with [[Amegakure]]'s [[Hanzō]], they were the only Konoha ninja to survive Hanzō's attacks. As a reward for this, Hanzō named them the "Sannin" of [[Konohagakure]], a title that would follow them for the rest of their lives and which they themselves would use with pride. However, the same battle that they received the name was the last one they fought together; Jiraiya chose to remain in Ame afterwards and, by the time he returned to Konoha, Tsunade had abandoned the life of a ninja and departed Konoha. Orochimaru would later defect from the village and Jiraiya left Konoha to try and bring him back.
Every member of this team grew to become [[Kage]]-level ninja and with the exception of [[Jiraiya]] — who turned down the position — they all became [[village head]]s. All of them, at one point or the other ended up leaving the village for various reasons, though Tsunade and Jiraiya would remain loyal to the village. Orochimaru would later join the [[Akatsuki]] and after leaving that group, would move on to found [[Otogakure]]. [[Tsunade]], after suffering great losses during the Second and [[Third Shinobi World War]], would travel the world alongside her apprentice, [[Shizune]], while [[Jiraiya]] would covertly follow Orochimaru's actions and later Akatsuki's, with the goal to protect Konoha from any future external threats. Hiruzen would retire as Hokage, naming [[Minato Namikaze]] the Fourth Hokage until the latter's death during the [[Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha]], which forced him to resume office as the Third. He would remain the presiding Hokage until Orochimaru's [[Invasion of Konoha]], which ended in his death. With this, Tsunade took up office as the Fifth Hokage at Jiraiya's — who had declined the position — behest. Three years later, Orochimaru would be permanently [[Sword of Totsuka|sealed]] by [[Itachi Uchiha]], and Jiraiya would be killed by his former student, [[Pain]], leaving Tsunade as the only surviving Sannin. However, Orochimaru was later revived by [[Sasuke Uchiha]].

  +
Because of their skills, each of the Sannin have been considered for the position of Hokage at one time or another. Jiriaya was Hiruzen's preference for the position of Fourth Hokage, but he wasn't interested in the responsibilities. Orochimaru applied for the position of Fourth Hokage, but Hiruzen did not believe Orochimaru had the village's best interests at heart. Hiruzen again wanted Jiraiya to become Hokage after the [[Fourth Hokage]]'s death, but by then Jiriaya spent too much time away from the village. After Hiruzen's death, the [[Konoha Council]] once more asks Jiraiya to take on the title of Hokage, but he instead suggests Tsunade for the position, who ultimately accepts.
  +
  +
Even though they never worked together again after the Second Shinobi World War, and even though Jiraiya and Tsunade were frequently at odds with Orochimaru when they did meet, the three ever-remained deeply attached to each other. When rumors of Orochimaru's death reach Konoha, Jiraiya and Tsunade are saddened by the news. By the time the rumors are found to be wrong, Jiraiya has died, and Orochimaru is moved by the dedication Jiraiya displayed his whole life.

The Sannin (伝説の三忍, Densetsu no Sannin, Literally meaning: Legendary Three Ninja) are renowned ninja from Konohagakure, hailed as three of the greatest shinobi of their time.

History Edit

Team hiruzen

Hiruzen and the young Sannin.

Before they were the Sannin, the three were students of Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage. When the team was first formed and they were fresh genin, Hiruzen gave them a bell test to test their skills; Jiraiya failed to get a bell, and was tied to a stump as punishment. During their time under Hiruzen's tutelage they all learned to use the Summoning Technique, which they performed with their left hand. Despite being a team and having accomplished great things together, the three members were always in constant disagreement with one another, which Tsunade referred to as, "the three-way deadlock." Once they became skilled ninja able to look after themselves, Hiruzen's team disbanded.

Despite the official dissolution of their team, the three continued to work together during the Second Shinobi World War. During one battle with Amegakure's Hanzō, they were the only Konoha ninja to survive Hanzō's attacks. As a reward for this, Hanzō named them the "Sannin" of Konohagakure, a title that would follow them for the rest of their lives and which they themselves would use with pride. However, the same battle that they received the name was the last one they fought together; Jiraiya chose to remain in Ame afterwards and, by the time he returned to Konoha, Tsunade had abandoned the life of a ninja and departed Konoha. Orochimaru would later defect from the village and Jiraiya left Konoha to try and bring him back.

Because of their skills, each of the Sannin have been considered for the position of Hokage at one time or another. Jiriaya was Hiruzen's preference for the position of Fourth Hokage, but he wasn't interested in the responsibilities. Orochimaru applied for the position of Fourth Hokage, but Hiruzen did not believe Orochimaru had the village's best interests at heart. Hiruzen again wanted Jiraiya to become Hokage after the Fourth Hokage's death, but by then Jiriaya spent too much time away from the village. After Hiruzen's death, the Konoha Council once more asks Jiraiya to take on the title of Hokage, but he instead suggests Tsunade for the position, who ultimately accepts.

Even though they never worked together again after the Second Shinobi World War, and even though Jiraiya and Tsunade were frequently at odds with Orochimaru when they did meet, the three ever-remained deeply attached to each other. When rumors of Orochimaru's death reach Konoha, Jiraiya and Tsunade are saddened by the news. By the time the rumors are found to be wrong, Jiraiya has died, and Orochimaru is moved by the dedication Jiraiya displayed his whole life.
