The group is comprised of the three [[genin]] from '''Team Hiruzen''' — which was 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.

As [[genin]], the three were the students of [[Hiruzen Sarutobi]], the Third [[Hokage]]. When the team was first formed, 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 perform with their left hands. 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 a "three-way deadlock". Once they became skilled ninja able to look after themselves, Hiruzen's team was disbanded.

Every member of this team grew to become [[Kage]]-level ninja and, with the exception of [[Jiraiya]] (who turned down the position of Hokage), later 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 until Orochimaru was [[Evil Unsealing Method|revived]] by [[Sasuke Uchiha]].
+
Despite the official dissolution of their team, the three continued to work together during the [[Second Shinobi World War]]. During one battle with [[Hanzō]] of the Salamander, they were the only Konoha ninja to survive Hanzō's attacks. As a reward for this, Hanzō dubbed them "[[Konoha]]'s Legendary Sannin", a title that would follow them for the rest of their lives and which they themselves would use with pride. However, that same battle was the last one they fought together; happening upon a group of [[Ame Orphans|war orphans]] demanding training, Orochimaru proposed to kill them in order to end their suffering. Jiraiya however, chose to remain in Ame with them. By the time he had returned to Konoha, Tsunade had abandoned the life of a ninja and departed Konoha. Orochimaru, having been caught performing unethical experiments on his fellow shinobi, deserted the village. Jiraiya failed to stop Orochimaru from leaving and later left the village himself to track his and the [[Akatsuki]]'s movements.

  +
Because of their legendary skills and prowess, each of the Sannin have been considered for the position of Hokage at one time or another. Jiraiya was Hiruzen's preference for the position of Fourth Hokage, but he wasn't interested in the responsibilities. Orochimaru applied for the position, but Hiruzen did not believe Orochimaru had the village's best interests at heart and was passed over in favour of Jiraiya's student, [[Minato Namikaze]]. Hiruzen again wanted Jiraiya to become Hokage after the Fourth's death, but Jiraiya once again refused. After Hiruzen's death, the [[Konoha Council]] asked Jiraiya to assume the position once more. Jiraiya declines once again, feeling unworthy of the title for failing to save the Third or Fourth, and feeling that the Hokage's duties would cut into his "[[Icha Icha|research]]" time. However, Jiraiya offered to bring Tsunade back to the village, where she became the Fifth Hokage.
  +
  +
The three were never on good terms again following 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 rumours of Orochimaru's death reach Konoha, Jiraiya and Tsunade are saddened by the news, although relieved that he was no longer a threat. When Jiraiya once again ventured to Amegakure to investigate [[Pain]], Tsunade bet that he would die, so that her legendary terrible luck would ensure his survival. Upon learning that Jiraiya was killed by Pain, Tsunade privately mourned for his loss.

During the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Tsunade and Orochimaru, along with a [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] Hiruzen, worked together once again, with Tsunade claiming that had Orochimaru changed sooner, Jiraiya might still be alive. Orochimaru replied that Jiraiya died just the way he was, which was better than him changing.

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

Team Hiruzen.

As genin, the three were the students of Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage. When the team was first formed, 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 perform with their left hands. 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 a "three-way deadlock". Once they became skilled ninja able to look after themselves, Hiruzen's team was disbanded.

Hanzo and Sannin

Hanzō names Jiraiya, Tsunade and Orochimaru the "Sannin".

Despite the official dissolution of their team, the three continued to work together during the Second Shinobi World War. During one battle with Hanzō of the Salamander, they were the only Konoha ninja to survive Hanzō's attacks. As a reward for this, Hanzō dubbed them "Konoha's Legendary Sannin", a title that would follow them for the rest of their lives and which they themselves would use with pride. However, that same battle was the last one they fought together; happening upon a group of war orphans demanding training, Orochimaru proposed to kill them in order to end their suffering. Jiraiya however, chose to remain in Ame with them. By the time he had returned to Konoha, Tsunade had abandoned the life of a ninja and departed Konoha. Orochimaru, having been caught performing unethical experiments on his fellow shinobi, deserted the village. Jiraiya failed to stop Orochimaru from leaving and later left the village himself to track his and the Akatsuki's movements.

Because of their legendary skills and prowess, each of the Sannin have been considered for the position of Hokage at one time or another. Jiraiya was Hiruzen's preference for the position of Fourth Hokage, but he wasn't interested in the responsibilities. Orochimaru applied for the position, but Hiruzen did not believe Orochimaru had the village's best interests at heart and was passed over in favour of Jiraiya's student, Minato Namikaze. Hiruzen again wanted Jiraiya to become Hokage after the Fourth's death, but Jiraiya once again refused. After Hiruzen's death, the Konoha Council asked Jiraiya to assume the position once more. Jiraiya declines once again, feeling unworthy of the title for failing to save the Third or Fourth, and feeling that the Hokage's duties would cut into his "research" time. However, Jiraiya offered to bring Tsunade back to the village, where she became the Fifth Hokage.

The three were never on good terms again following 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 rumours of Orochimaru's death reach Konoha, Jiraiya and Tsunade are saddened by the news, although relieved that he was no longer a threat. When Jiraiya once again ventured to Amegakure to investigate Pain, Tsunade bet that he would die, so that her legendary terrible luck would ensure his survival. Upon learning that Jiraiya was killed by Pain, Tsunade privately mourned for his loss.

During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Tsunade and Orochimaru, along with a reincarnated Hiruzen, worked together once again, with Tsunade claiming that had Orochimaru changed sooner, Jiraiya might still be alive. Orochimaru replied that Jiraiya died just the way he was, which was better than him changing.

Renown Edit

Known Missions Edit

Assassinate Hiruko (Movie only)
  • Rank: Unknown
  • Status: Failure

Jiraiya, Tsunade and Orochimaru were assigned by the Third Hokage, Hiruzen, to locate Hiruko and assassinate him for conducting illegal experiments. This failed, as Hiruko escaped with his research from the village by the time the Sannin reached his lab.

Trivia Edit

  • Each of the Sannin has trained one member of Team Kakashi: Jiraiya has trained Naruto, Tsunade has trained Sakura, and Orochimaru has trained Sasuke.
  • The Sannin are named after the characters in the Japanese folktale Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari.
  • The world wide game "scissors, paper, stone" originated from China during the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), invented by the warlords of that period. Except instead of paper, they used the open palm symbol to represent cloth, so it's "Scissors, Stone, Cloth". The game reached Japan in the early 1640s and one variation of the game was the "Slug, Snake, Frog" variation. In this variation, the Frog is afraid of the Snake, the Snake is afraid of the Slug, and the Slug is afraid of the Frog. This is influenced by the Sansukumi way of thinking where it keeps the three objects in a deadlock. The fact that the Sannin use these three animals as summons may be the author hinting that there is no stronger one among them, and that their strength is more or less equal.
