I heard something about neutarl view? How is calling him back neautral and even dark skinned.

No it is not a racist, because most of the characters are paled skin, but we don't separate them into Asian white or European white, because they are just white, and beside how is his color of skin a racism, racism is when you insul somebody because he is different color of skin or is in minortity, it is not racism when you say the truth that Raikage is darkskined, racism is when you think bad about somebody if he has a dark skin...

As the article states, we don't know how many there have been, so why are four listed? I don't remember the 3rd ever being mentioned in that story, and why does i say the supposed 4th is the strongest?

Could some1 please correct that?(in cm?)

We can't correct it because we don't really know how tall he actually is. He doesn't seem that much taller than his fellow worker ninja. Either that or the ninja is actually really tall as well.

Separate Page

I say we should separate the "current Raikage" and the "Raikage" (the title in general) into different pages. Yatanogarasu

Clash Picture

I believe it suits as a good picture. It shows the clash between the two and beside their is no pictures at all in the history section thus making it kinda dol. --Gojita (talk) 14:17, 21 August 2009 (UTC)Gojita

It has two problems: One, it is still unnecessary, it's just showing that two people are about to fight...happens all the time. And two, the large fansubbed translation in the middle kills it. Removing the text from the chat bubble goes only so far.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 15:58, 21 August 2009 (UTC)


I think the raikage has lightning style. I saw on the chapter 460 at the end he had lightning covering him it was something like chidori nagashi. Kyuubinaruto123 (talk) 10:48, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

It is already in the article. Jacce | Talk 14:08, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

raikage kills zetsu

The article had stated that the raikage kills zetsu, but that would be an assumption as we don't know what his fate is.I made an edit so that it states he choked zetsu and he fell unmoving to the floor.--cobra (talk) 19:54, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Flying Thunder God Technique

Shi stated that Raikage is going to use this technique to counter Sasuke's attack (chapter 463 p. 09), so this technique shouldn't be in his jutsu box? --Kiba91 (talk) 21:11, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

Shi said that the Raikage was as fast as the jutsu, not that he used it. Jacce | Talk 21:16, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
So you say he's only as faast has hs jutsu. Key word jutsu now shouldnt every jutsu be put up. The human body itself can only go so fast so saying he;s is only as fast as his jutsu is stpud and alomost like saying your only as fast as your body can go when you open chakra gates.
Good job completely misconstruing what he said. A year ago. ~SnapperTo 02:34, June 6, 2010 (UTC)


Is there enough information to warrant an article on Raikage's nintaijutsu? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:08, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

Nintaijutsu sounds like nothing more than a combination of ninjutsu and taijutsu. Like Naruto's Uzumaki Naruto Combo or Clone Body Blow. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 19:04, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
If not an article, it should be given at least a good paragraph both in taijutsu and ninjutsu articles. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 19:12, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
Well, there's a slight problem: what will we say about it? We never heard anything about this before. All techniques we've seen before have been classified as either ninjutsu or taijutsu. I can't recall a single technique that was classified as both. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 19:21, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't have to be much, we don't have much information on it, but as long as we write it out ok, I see no problem. We might also get some more info on upcoming chapters, this could be Sage Mode all over again, thought I doubt nintaijutsu will be as relevant to the plot and properly elaborated as Sage Mode and Senjutsu was. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 19:29, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
To me, the Raikage's attacks are to his armor what Mega Palm Thrust is to the Multi-Size Technique: using the taijutsu is dependent on a ninjutsu, but there isn't necessarily a combined nintaijutsu style. ~SnapperTo 22:27, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

dark-skinned ?

Isn´t it racist to describe the Raikage as dark-skinned while other characters skin color isn´t?Memo$ (talk) 06:48, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

Wat else do u wanna call it?..--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 07:01, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

No, it's just a physical description, and other characters have skin color mentioned too. Haku is 'pale-skinned' for example. ZeroSD (talk) 07:04, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

It's not racist, but why not just call him what he is: black?

To get hyper technical, black is racist too. Black means to separate the skin color as another race when it really isn't as we are all of the same species (Human) when dark-skinned (which for this anime is unique) simply shows that his is well dark-skinned. This is coming from a black man himself by the way. I'm not gonna revert your changes, mainly on the grounds that I do not care enough to do it, I'll wait for some of the other editors to do it for me.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 11:58, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

Personally I prefer "dark-skinned". To quote a former teacher, "it is a less loaded word". This is a encyclopedia, we have to present all facts from a neutral view. Jacce | Talk 16:49, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Words aren't racist. Racism is thought and intent. Dark skin, brown skin, black colored... it doesn't mater what term you use, you're just talking about the color of someone's skin. Racism is when you use that fact to infer something about that person and prejudge them. The closest thing to racism here, is the fact that someone is pointing out words like that in the article, that is separation of race without due cause. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Sep 15, 2009 @ 17:10 (UTC)

Youre all dumb calling someone black isent racist. Discreminating somone because there black is racist avoiding and seducing black people is racist I have called black people black before.--TheBlueBlur (talk) 19:51, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

I heard something about neutarl view? How is calling him back neautral and even dark skinned. You say it is completly normal but you for the majority of this peida for 'white coloured shinobi' it never says there skin colour,or any reference to it assumiing it is white just because you are a majority which is racist.

Technique names

I was thinking, at the moment we have the names of the Raikage's techniques as literal meaning of kanji (kanji, rōmaji), with a trivia note mentioning how the name is actually English. I thought perhaps it might be more elegant to change the current naming to English (kanji, rōmaji; Literally meaning "literal meaning of kanji"). This also goes for Killer Bee's and Darui's techniques, of course. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 22:50, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

I'm confused, is this because all of the Raikage and Killer Bee's moves are mostly wrestling moves that they have to go around themselves like that?--TheUltimate3 (talk) 23:10, September 18, 2009 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure what you mean... I'll try to explain any way: Some of the techniques used by the Raikage, Killer Bee and Darui are English, which are given kanji to match the pronunciation. E.g. this move is called "Lariat", pronounced as "rariatto" in Japanese, and written with the kanji for "lightning" (雷, rai), "plough" (犂, ri), "hot" (熱, at), and "sword" (刀, to). The kanji would usually be pronounced as "Rairi Nettō".
Right now, we named the article after the literal meaning of the kanji ("Lightning Plough Hot Sword") and give the name as Lightning Plough Hot Sword (雷犂熱刀, Rairiatto). We only explain that it's an English name written in kanji in the trivia section.
I'm proposing we change the article name to "Lariat" and give the name as Lariat (雷犂熱刀, Rairiatto; Literally meaning "Lightning Plough Hot Sword"), so we only have to explain the connection to the wrestling move in the trivia section. I believe this to be a more elegant solution. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 23:33, September 18, 2009 (UTC)
I meant to ask about this since I like "Laser Circus" more than I do "Encouraging Crushing Chain Tormenting Principle". If it seems like Kishimoto's going for an English pronunciation, I say use that. ~SnapperTo 02:47, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

Lost arms

Since there have been six characters to lose arms already, is it really important to put that in the trivia? It's fun in a way, but it almost seems too common, Kishi likes to chop his characters arms off.

No Special Ability

The current Raikage has Shown no bloodline ability like Danzo, Onoki, and the current Mizukage, or (Ex)Jinchurikki Abilitys. So why not put The Current Raikage has shown no Bloodline/Jinchurikki ability like the other Kage. or something like that.~Anonymous

User:GohanRULEZ|Sting! TenRyuoh!]] 22:19, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

    • I thought the Raikage's name was Killa A.

Since when was his name Killa E? Seriously? I'd like to see a source on this.

You sure it's not Killer A (or Killer Ē), as in Killer Bee? Rather than Killa? Yatanogarasu 20:54, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Please turn its name back to Current Raikage because we are not yet sure what his real name is. Damniel002 (talk) 1:21, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

  • I saw the fanbook so I know that Raikage is called Ē/A, but I can't see evidence that he's called Killa(er) Ē. It's hinted because of Killer Bee, but "Killer" could be simply a nickname or "Killer Bee" his first name... so there's no real evidence that Raikage has "Killer" in his name. I think it's the same as Konohamaru, who despite being the Third's grandson his surname wasn't included on his article until he said his complete name in the manga. So I suggest to remove "Killer" of the name. (talk) 06:12, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

This may be stupid question, but how something from the fanbook can be considered canon?--Erik1310 (talk) 06:19, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

How are fanbooks different from databooks then?--Erik1310 (talk) 06:33, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

The fanbooks have different content matter than the databooks. Both are canon, though. Also, the Raikage wasn't called Killer A, just エー (Ē). --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 11:09, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Name Vote

OK, seeing as how it looks like we're moving towards renaming the page "A", i thought i'd officiate a vote on the matter. Wether youre a new editor or one of the roundtable of us that tend to congregate, please just put your vote ( Ē or A), and a breif reason why.

I place my vote for "A" because it keeps with the naming scheme and is phonetic grammatical form of Ē. Newthx2u (talk) 01:02, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

i say A because most people that have read the kanji say so.Linkdarkside (talk) 01:20, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

A seems more likely. (talk) 04:50, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Votes mean nothing here, don't bother cluttering up the talkpage with them. (Consensus != Voting; Consensus is about discussion reasoning, and coming to a common ground if possible.) In this case changing it needs two things. Firstly ShounenSuki needs to confirm that Ē is commonly translated to A. And secondly, a policy needs to be re-discussed. The old policy was to stick with the romaji until the character and their name has shown up in the English series officially or come out in the databook. That is why Pain was Pein, and Killer Bee was Kirābī for so long. Another short discussion on naming, of the switching to using the English form of these commonly translated names. I'm not against common English names myself. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Dec 5, 2009 @ 06:03 (UTC)

I'd go with A, put I'd prefer Ā, Ai, or Ae. I also think the "Killer" should be include. It seems like it's his and Bee's last name. So Bee's full english name would be "Bee Killer" and the Raikage would be "Ā Killer". =) Cidem1324

Two things:
  1. Every Japanese person would think of the Latin letter "A" when reading エー (Ē). Just like how they would think of the Latin letter "C" when reading シー (Shī).
  2. There is absolutely nothing that indicates that Killer is the family name of Killer Bee and the Fourth Raikage. The use of Killer is more consistent with a nickname, it has never been used to refer to the Raikage, and if it was their family name, why would it not have been given as such in the fanbook? It gave us the Mizukage's family name.
--ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 10:44, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

The fact that you guys were wrong about "Pein" and "Kirābī" doesn't make this obvious enough? His name is obviously A. TheGeg (talk) 16:34, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Technically Pein isn't wrong. We were just not sure if Kishimoto actually wanted to use the word "Pain" as Pain's name or wanted to be interesting and use Pein to get similar results. The "Kirabi/Kira Hachi/Killer Bee" Wars was fun however. It's even noted on TVtropes.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 16:49, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Well, the ei and ai pronunciations are different in japanese and english, so Pain in rōmaji technicslly is Pein, both are pronounced the same. If it was Pain in rōmaji, then his name wold be Pine... (talk) 20:45, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

"Killer" had better not be their surname. Because this stupid wiki uses "Naruto Uzumaki" instead of "Uzumaki Naruto", even though the wiki is about a Japanese manga/anime, so a sentence like "The Fourth Raikage, A Killer, is the elder brother of B Killer" would make me vomit. :( Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da (talk) 12:43, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe the name Killer is a known nickname for Bee and A instead of their actual name24.161.121.213 (talk) 12:52, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Let's stop this pointless discussion here. There is no evidence to support "Killer" being anywhere in A's name. And we use western order for names because A) The English translations use it. B) We're an English wiki, not a Japanese wiki. C) It was decided by community consensus to use western order. Geijustu wa bakuhatsu da should probably go take a look at Rock Lee and Might Guy, Killer Bee won't end up as B Killer for the same reason Rokku (Rock) Rī (Lee) isn't Lee Rock, and Maito (Might) Gai (Guy) isn't Guy Might. To be frank if we weren't using western order like the English translations of names officially do, and trying to apply eastern order to them, we would probably end up with names like Lee Rock. The only relevant point here, is whether or not we have community consensus to start assuming the English form of phonetic names before an official translation comes out. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Dec 9, 2009 @ 21:06 (UTC)

It seems most people agree on using the English translation. I would say we reached consensus, or does anyone still disagree with using A instead of Ē? --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 12:43, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
I personally think that we should stick with Ē. The fact that a name can be translated into English does not necessarily mean that it should. Look at the surname Uzumaki, for example. It can mean whirlpool, but we don't go around saying Naruto Whirlpool. The only times that we have translated a name into English are Pain and Killer Bee. The reason that we use Pain instead of Pein is that Pain is obviously supposed to be a reference to Nagato's traumatic childhood, and that a pun was likely intended when the character was named. As for Killer Bee, I am personally of the opinion that this was also a pun (many of his attacks involve stabbing, similar to a bee's stinger, and he quoted Muhammad Ali's "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee"), but this is arguable. In the case of Ē, there is no pun that would come out if we used the name A instead of Ē. Until we can find a valid reason for a translation, we should keep the original name.
P.S. If I made any mistakes in this edit, please let me know. --Enoki911 (talk) 04:07, December 17, 2009 (UTC)Enoki911
Ah, but there is a pun, or should I say a naming theme. Kumogakure characters seem to be named after one of two things: Adjectives (light, heavy, cold, sluggish) or letters of the alphabet (A, B, C, J). Taking this into account, Killer Bee should most likely be Killer B and Ē should most likely be A. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 09:10, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
That is true. I guess that we should change the name to A. But, if we're going to do that, we should change all of the other names of the alphabet-based characters as well. If we're going to change one, and a reason for changing his name is that the style of naming is common, then it follows that we should change the others as well. -- (talk) 00:42, December 18, 2009 (UTC)Enoki911

Sorry. The above edit was mine. I forgot to log in before commenting. --Enoki911 (talk) 00:45, December 18, 2009 (UTC)Enoki911

The Japanese pronunciation for "A" is エー (Ee), this is simply fact. B is ビー (Bii), C is シー (Shi), D is ディー (Dii), E is イー (Ii), and so on. If you don't understand basic pronunciation of Japanese characters, you shouldn't even have a say in the conversation. All kana is phonetic and pronounced the way it's spelled. The characters "エー" will never appear together to form a Japanese word, or even part of a Japanese word. They do however appear in Japanese pronunciations of English words such as Agent (エージェント, Eejento), Ace (エース, Eesu), Age (エージ, Eeji), AD (エーディー, Eedii), ABC Order (エービーシーじゅん, Eebiishii-jun), and many others. It's "A", a pun on his little brother, "B", fitting together with other Cloud-nin like C and J. You'd have to be blind to think otherwise. FF-Suzaku (talk) 12:45, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

Shortest Name

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Ē have the shortest name in Naruto (with it being only one letter). Or am I missing someone.--Nintendo-Fan (talk) 07:29, January 17, 2010 (UTC)Nintendo-Fan

That depends on how you look at it.
In Japanese, his name is two kana long (エー), the same length as Shī, Haku, Ao, Dan, Kiba, Tsume, Hana, etcetera. In fact, if you actually look at how a name is written, then Haku and Ao have names that are only one kanji long, while the Raikage's name is two kana long.
If you take into consideration the likelyhood of the Raikage's name actually being written as A, then his name is still the same length as the names of Shī (C) and Jei (J). Killer Bee's name might also only be written as B.
The only way the Raikage has the shortest name is when looking at the rōmaji, which shouldn't really be taken into account. After all, rōmaji is nothing more than a romanisation system, a way of representing Japanese in the Latin alphabet. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 10:52, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

On Narutopedia Its Going to be A not Ē ,right--Nintendo-Fan (talk) 00:54, February 4, 2010 (UTC)Nintendo-Fan

Yah... I'm gonna be confused whenever I read A containing his name. Simant (talk) 00:58, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Which I think is one reason why ShounenSuki has been going from "Ē" to "Fourth Raikage" instead of "A". Why we insist on using "X, the Yth Zkage" at every opportunity is beyond me. ~SnapperTo 01:11, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
You're right. Especially in the Fourth Raikage's case, using his kage name is much more natural than his personal name. A looks odd. Also, in many cases, using his kage name is more relevant. When talking about his role during the Kage Summit, using his personal name is illogical, as he was there in the role of Raikage. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 07:46, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

His Speed/Reflexes

I'm just curious... where does it state that his speed is comparible only to that of the fourth hokages? Was it mentioned in the manga or derived from what's been mentioned seperately about both the Raikage and Hokage? Gojinn (talk) 01:08, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Mentioned in the manga by C. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:14, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Reflex speed equal to the Yellow Flash's before the Lightning Release Armor?

From the ordering of C's statement, it's not immediately clear, but I think that the Raiton no Yoroi enhances his already Yellow Flash-level reflexes. For instance, HisshouBuraiKen translated the line as "Raikage-sama's reflexes are on the same level [more like "no worse than"] as the late Yellow Flash...I'm impressed those three can even keep up. But now [I don't agree with the "now"] that his body's surrounded in lightning chakra, even the Sharingan will lose sight of him...", which never says that the Raikage's reflexes are Yellow Flash-level due to to the Raiton no Yoroi and does sound like the technique enhances his reflexes beyond Yellow Flash's. Bvdan (talk) 06:46, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

I'm curious, what page in the manga is this stated in? ¥ Super Novice Talk 2 Me ¥ 06:48, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Chapter 462, page 3:
こいつらよくついてきてるほうだ しかし反射を活性化するための
雷遁チャクラをまとった以上 写輪眼でも追いつけない それにまだ…
HisshouBuraiken: Raikage-sama's reflexes are on the same level as the late Yellow Flash...I'm impressed those three can even keep up. But now that his body's surrounded in lightning chakra, even the Sharingan will lose sight of him... But they're still...
The first statement says that the Raikage's reflexes are no worse than the Yellow Flash's, and it never assigns that fact to the Raiton no Yoroi technique. Still, I think it's possible that C was referring to the Raikage's reflexes just then, and he was wearing the armor at that point. Still, it doesn't sound like it to me, considering the shikashi (but; however). Bvdan (talk) 06:58, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
The Translation on OneManga says he's as fast as a flash of light; making no reference to Minato so... ¥ Super Novice Talk 2 Me ¥ 07:05, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
That one is just a mistake. The line has "黄色い閃光" (kiiroi senkou; yellow flash). If I had to give a diagnosis, I'd say the translator read "Yellow Flash", forgot Minato's nickname, and thought "light". Bvdan (talk) 07:12, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
You may be right even though it's the same translator, SleepyFans, though it's best to wait for ShounenSuki as he/she is the resident translator here. ¥ Super Novice Talk 2 Me ¥ 07:19, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Same translator? Sleepyfans doesn't use HisshouBuraiKen's translations, using a translator that goes by the handle Sakura instead (at least typically). Bvdan (talk) 07:28, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
Just so you know, Sleepyfans is generally disrespected on this wiki. Also, for the record, ShounenSuki is a male.--Enoki911 (talk) 08:30, February 23, 2010 (UTC)


"He prefers using wrestling techniques to more traditional forms of taijutsu." Is this really true? He used the Lariat and the Liger Bomb, true, but he used plety of other traditional attacks. In fact, these are the only two wrestling techniques that he's shown.--Enoki911 (talk) 08:26, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not a wrestling fan, but from what I gather, all of the Raikage's techniques (with the obvious exception of the Lightning Release Armour) are based on wrestling moves. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 12:37, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

So your saying just because so far he has only used wreastling moves which i do not believe he prefers using it than taijutsu? If you really beleive the rubbish give me some evidence to prove it.


Shouldn't one of his titles be Taiken?--Nintendo-Fan (talk) 06:51, March 2, 2010 (UTC)Nintendo-Fan

You mean if it should be listed in his infobox? If so, then I would say no. That would be akin to listing captain (隊長, taichō) in Yamato's infobox. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 07:52, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Is this Raikage responsible for the Hyuga Affair?

Considering that A has most likely bee Raikage for the last 30 years, since the time that Bee has been made into a Jinchuriki, this would make it highly possible that the Hyuga affair, aka the kidnap attempt on Hinata Hyuga, was during A's rule and thus would be caused by him. Should we put this information on his page? A has even express anger at Konoha, saying that they should have taken care of Sasuke as fast as they took care of the Hyuga affair. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 03:03, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Given what we know of him know I have to agree with you. Even if he was not Kage (and his predecessor was looking pretty old even then) and just the designated successor, he would have still had an important say on policy and the 3rd Raikage would have definitely followed his opinion if he was a reasonable leader; so if he did not order it he would have still been critical to it being agreed to. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 03:23, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
Unless he wasn't the designated successor then, or the Raikage had nothing to do with the incident at the time. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 14:30, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know if this discussion is closed or not. If yes, my apologies. If no, I want to add that we don't know at what point of his life A was made Raikage. I doubt he could have become one as early as Gaara. So We don't know if it was after or before the Hyuga incident. BlazeUchiha (Talk) 14:53, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

We know that A was an important enough member of Kumo that they made his brother into a jinchuriki, which is only done on those with close connections to the Kage. Since Bee (to our knowledge) is not a relation to the 3rd Raikage it is logical to assume that they made him a jinchuriki because it was expected that A would become Raikage in the future. In fact, this scene implies that he was Raikage pretty soon after. But even if he was not, the 3rd Raikage would not want make a decision that his successor would disagree with. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 22:40, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Do you have proof the Raikage, whomever it was at the time, was even involved in the Hyūga affair? --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 00:30, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
As an add-on to my previous response: We have no proof that B was made a jinchriki because A was the Raikage to in line to be Raikage. They could be related to the Third Raikage for all we know. The scene where Motoi talks about A being Raikage show A as being old enough to be set after the Hyūga affair.
There are too many uncertainties here to make any definite statements. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 00:34, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
While you do have a point, that we can not make any definate statements, we can say that it is heavily implied that he was at least part of the Hyuga affair. Yamato's own words were that "Your actions could have caused a war" or something similar to that when Naruto asked the Raikage not to execute Sasuke. That, along with his anger towards Konoha for Sasuke freedom as a Nukenin when compared of how they took care of the Hyuga affair, can at least say he was either a part of it, or effected by it in some way, though I understand we probably shouldn't put anything up to aviod confusion and uncertainty, just something for the mind to chew on. Also, to the statement that we have no proof B was made a jinchuriki because A was a Raikage, that same scene you talk about with Motoi, Motoi talks about how Bee wanted to be a good host for A, due to jinchuriki not only being part of the Raikage's family, but also as a sign of strength. If he were a jinchuriki for the third Raikage, then Motoi would have most likely said something about him, and not the Raikage- his brother. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 04:04, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Chapter 457, page 13. "When you went after Hyuga's Byakugan..." I don't know how reliable Sleepy Fans is, but this translation seems to confirm that he was the Raikage at the time. Mohrpheus (talk) 04:18, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Or it was referring to the village and not the kage. - SimAnt 04:21, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

A as Raikage - PICTURE.

thumb Why do not add this image to this article?! I think it would be great to see it as main picture, but, if you do not like it, should it be added to article and call "A as the Fourth Raikage"?

The current infobox image shows him better. ~SnapperTo 03:26, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

raikages speed

it seems that in the manga, C explains that raikages nervous system and reaction time is comparable to that of the yondaime hokage, yet after he says that, he then states that when raikage puts on his raiton armor, not even the sharingan should keep, implying that raikage is naturally around the same of level as the fourth in terms of reaction time, but in raiton armor he is even faster!

but it seems no one will accept that as i placed the link to thhis, but people keep on changing it back, i sense fanboyism . . .

A's speed is already elaborated on, what you're adding is just a mix and match of already stated facts. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:41, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

According to the official translation, Raikage and Minato are equal in speed. They are actually equal with Sasuke, Juugo, and Suigetsu because they were still able to "keep up", if only for a short period. However, he becomes faster than the aforementioned shinobi when using the lightning chakra. This is according to Viz's translation. Wreiad (talk) 17:19, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Minato speed = Raikage (A) speed?

What is true? In manga written: "The speed of Raikage-sama's nervous system and reflexes... are comparable to those of the yellow flash" just after "But since he has the raiton chakra amplifying his reflexes not even the sharingan can keep up". Raikage mean faster Minato or not? I don't understand the meaning of words. Please help me.

Okay maybe its just me?

But what is with this section in A's synposis? "While the Kage and their bodyguards dodged the rubble, Sasuke escaped from the hall to find and kill Danzō. After catching up with Sasuke, A learned from the Tsuchikage that Sasuke is dead, which angered him." Did the Tsuchikage lie or is the mention "Sasuke is dead" meant to me be "Danzō is dead" which is how I remembered reading the manga. Or Sasuke has escaped? Haven't changed it as am not 100% sure. However I don't remember Sasuke ever being told deceased to A. Romance Dawn (talk) 17:15, January 11, 2011 (UTC) Or was it a fake corpse to make Sasuke appear deceased? If so you should mention it in the sypnosis as it is confusing lol. Romance Dawn (talk) 17:23, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

The information is correct check chapter 466 page 16-17--Cerez365 (talk) 17:25, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
The Tsuchikage says that he killed Sasuke because he believes that Sasuke was caught in his Dust Release technique. When A arrives, he is told that, and when he complains about it, Madara appears holding Sasuke. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:33, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
