Sakura

Can Sakura also summon Katsuyu?? I mean she trained under a Sannin like Sasuke and Naruto did. Is it possible that she learned it too???

It's very well possible, yes. However, there is absolutely no evidence for it yet. --ShounenSuki 10:52, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Question

I was wondering, just out of nowhere, when Katsuyu uses her great division technique and creates many Mini-Katsuyus, are each Mini-Katsuyu part of her, or are they like, babies? I mean, in the Invasion of Pain arc, they all had a brain of there own...Just Confused...--~ EDITOR - NejiByakugan360 - Please respond on my Talk Page! 16:01, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Every division is Katsuyu. Their minds even seem to be linked together. It works a bit like the Six Paths of Pain, but without a central body like Nagato. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 18:53, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Mystical Palm Technique

Can't she use Mystical Palm Technique or another medical ninjutsu of some sort? She was healing others in the Pain Invasion, wasn't she? --NejiByakugan360 14:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

She was transmitting Tsunade's chakra. Jacce | Talk 14:35, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Gender

I've been reading all shippuden manga recently and on chapter 431, page 2, Tsunade says: "He" has intel on them. Is this a translation mistake or something ?StefanSB (StefanSB) 14:17, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

That would be a mistranslation. However, this does raise a question with me: do we have any proof Katsuyu is female? Technically speaking, slugs are hermaphrodites. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 15:38, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
I suppose since she..eh..he..screw it "it" sounds female, we've come to the conclusion that Katsuyu is a female...--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 16:02, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
They also call her 'Lady Katsuyu' in the anime so it's assumed she is a uh ,, 'She'. --UchihaGlenn (talk) 14:49, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
Which would be Katsuyu-sama in Japanese. Which is genderless. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 14:58, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
Yet she has female voice actors, and has been referred to as her and she several times over the manga. Official translation is 'She'.--NaruHina fan (talk) 19:51, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Naruto has female voice actors too. ~SnapperTo 19:59, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Katsuyu's only been referred to as "sama" and the one time a gender is identified it's apparently a mistranslation (when Tsunade says "him"). The fact that Katsuyu has a female voice actor really has nothing to do with her gender. Though I don't it (pun :3), it's the most rational thing to do given the apparent situation. But i'll look to see if there's any other time that a gender might've been mentioned in the manga.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:01, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Katsuya is explicitly said as 'she' in the official translation of the manga. "All right...but take Katsuya with you. She'll come in handy. She has intell..." Volume 46, chapter 431, page 156.--NaruHina fan (talk) 20:02, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
If it were as simple as something lost in translation wouldn't Shounen have just said so though?--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:07, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Just going by what was officially put down in regards to Katsuya's gender. --NaruHina fan (talk) 20:12, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Yes but it's not from the raw manga...--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:16, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Those are translations, which we all know to be subject to error. The databooks do not identify animals' gender, pronouns are rare and unreliable in Japanese (see wikipedia:Japanese pronouns and wikipedia:gender differences in spoken Japanese), and Katsuyu doesn't appear often enough for the few exceptions to have been used. Would a trivia point saying that Katsuyu is referred to as a female in English translations be a fair compromise? ~SnapperTo 20:18, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
We should've done that to at least explain the shift.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:32, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Is she really referred to as female in the English translations? Sure, they might be using female pronouns, but that isn't really the same. Remember that slugs are hermaphrodites and there is no good way to refer to hermaphrodites in English. The translators might have just picked the lesser of two evils. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 22:24, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
What exactly did Tsunade say though when it was translated to "him" Shounen O.o? --Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 22:27, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
"I understand... In that case, take Katsuyu along... [He/she] ought to be of some use. [He/she] has information about those guys." (「分かった...ならカツユを連れていけ...少しは役に立つはずだ。奴らの情報を持ってる。」, "Wakatta... Nara Katsuyu o tsurete ike... sukoshi wa yaku ni tatsu hazu da. Yatsura no jōhō o motteru.")
She doesn't use a single pronoun in Japanese, not any other indication of Katsuyu's gender. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 23:58, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

It's really off-putting to read the article or even write it with "it" can't we just use female pronouns and state that Katsuyu was only given a sex in the anime?--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 19:36, June 1, 2011 (UTC)

Her sex wasn't given in the anime, Katsuyu is going to have a male or female voice no matter what.--Deva 27 19:38, June 1, 2011 (UTC)

Can Katsuya do the Chakra Sensing Technique?

Given she commented on Naruto's chakra, like she was feeling it? --NaruHina fan (talk) 23:28, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

All characters can feel powerful chakra. Kakashi and Zabuza felt Naruto using the Nine-Tails chakra when he did it for the first time, but we don't consider them sensors. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:33, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
A lot of people who aren't necessarily sensors have commented on the feel of chakra before though. It's always seemed to me that Katsuyu was more uhm, "adept" to chakra, so no I wouldn't really say she's able to use the technique without more concrete evidence.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 23:34, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Katsu means Split

Why does someone keep removing my addition to the Trivia section, where I point out that the beginning of Katsuyu's name means "split". I think this is a relevant point and I'm going to keep adding it until someone explains to me why I shouldn't.—This unsigned comment was made by Dueler65 (talkcontribs) .

They kept removing it because they didn't trust it. You need to be able to prove that your addition is, in fact, not only correct, but useful as well. I can confirm that the 'katsu' part of Katsuyu's name can indeed be interpreted as meaning 'split', 'divide' (割). —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 23:03, July 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hiding spot...?

Where is Katsuyu hiding when Naruto is in Nine tails mode?—This unsigned comment was made by 93.103.121.86 (talkcontribs) .

In one of his pocket or somewhere inside his clothes.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 16:24, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Naruto in this six-tails or eight-tails form wasn't wearing any clothes.... :P :P akz! (talk) 16:27, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

....The six tails form is made up of chakra and the eighth is a transformation neither of which would affect his clothing. Either that or Katsuyu is a silk worm =\--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 16:41, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Where is "it" from

ok um does anyone know where katsuyu is from because gamabuta is from mt moboku right then where is manda and katsuyu from?--173.191.223.207 (talk) 04:32, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

We were never told to my knowledge. Skitts (talk) 04:35, February 2, 2012 (UTC)

Mini Slugs

If one of the mini slugs is killed, does it affect Katsuyu?--—This unsigned comment was made by 138.86.164.51 (talkcontribs) .

We don't know.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 10:48, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

Healing ability

on katsuyu's page it says it is able to heal or posably heal. I think it was just trying to bring Tsunade's lower half to her upper half so Tsunade could heal herself.67.54.176.53 (talk) 00:35, December 4, 2012 (UTC) NaruHina4ever
