Fire Element

Shouldn't be Body Flame Technique listed as Unnamed Fire Release Technique as Danzo have Unnamed Wind Release Technique in his list ? It was not named in Manga nor Anime ... And in Naruto episode 29 and manga chapter 48 Orochimaru is seen doing Fire Element Jutsu (proof) Some people are saying that it is Wind Release: Great Breakthrough ignited with Fire but how can he ignite it...he has no lighter or something, he used only his hands so doesn't this make him have Fire Element ? I don't see another way how can he ignite it...

The first databook uses that panel from chapter 48 in its description of Wind Release: Great Breakthrough, so that's what it is. It's also missing the usual flame indicators. ~SnapperTo 20:07, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

OK It's just weird to me.

And what about Body Flame Technique ?

Unnamed techniques are dealt with inconsistently. In this case the jutsu (assuming its unique) is unlikely to ever be named, so the faux-name might as well be used. ~SnapperTo 03:05, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree with you but still there must be a concrete evidences that he could really perform fire techniques like proper hand seals. Tshijraoro07

Perform handseals ? Kakashi is able to do Raikiri without handseals and Sasuke's Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique can be done in Shippuden without handseals too... And for his "strongest" fire jutsu (not counting Amaterasu) Fire Release: Great Dragon Fire Technique he just used one handseal-Tiger. So why Orochimaru one of the Sannin can't be able to do jutsu without handseals ? For Wind Release: Great Breakthrough and Summoning: Triple Rashomon he don't used a single one.The truth is that he is using handseals only in 5 of his Techniques... —This unsigned comment was made by Elveonora (talkcontribs) on 04:11, August 16, 2009.

Naruto isn't a reality show where everything must always be done. It's an anime, and animation is tedious, so is re-drawing hand signs in manga each time a person uses a technique. Rather than focusing on the actual content of the series, would you rather Kishimoto, his assistants, and the animators spend a pile of extra time adding more detailed hand signs each and every time? Bleh, the anime already has parts in it that draw out entire episodes with an extremely small amount of stuff actually happening, adding all those hand signs would reduce actual content, and make it take even longer to get chapters and episodes out. Japanese animation is tied heavily to taking shortcuts (have you ever took a close enough look and realized in a lot of shots in most anime almost nothing moves, just a few minor sections being animated, same animation being repeated, and pans over static images to make it look like there is animation) deal with it and stop reading so much into it. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Aug 16, 2009 @ 11:39 (UTC)

I agree with you Dantman, we already see sasuke, Kakashi et other characters perform handseals when the technique they're going to perform is for the first time, et only them can perform it; so why Kishimoto waste time just repeating handseals to those same jutsu's that a particular character always perform,it is just a waste of time. lastly WHETHER OROCHIMARU CAN PERFORM FIRE RELEASE TECHNIQUES IS JUST A BIG QUESTION FOR ALL OROCHIMARU'S FANS et AND WE NEED MORE CONCRETE EVIDENCES TO PROVE IT. Tsujiraoro07

He the one that ache to learn all the jutsu that exist ... one of the Sannin. The one that took souls of at least 4 people but I think there were more ... can't use Fire element ? —This unsigned comment was made by Elveonora (talkcontribs) .

Orochimaru takes their bodies, not souls. The "souls" are left suppressed inside him. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:10, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

But he does gain the genetic abilities of the bodies he takes over, so it would stand to reason that in taking over bodies he would aim to gain every element as a start to his learning every technique idea.

Should we put something in the trivia page about him and killing kage He killed the 4th kazekage, his actions lead up to the death of Hiruzen the Sandaime Hokage, and almost killed Tsunade who in a Few chapters, or episodes, later became the Godaime Hokage. is this enough for trivia or just more proof oros a fucking nutcase

The Kage reference is fine, the child molester one is not. For very obvious reasons.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 23:36, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
I think the Kage trivia is unnecessary. The Tsunade part is stretching things, and Orochimaru killing the Third Hokage and Fourth Kazekage should really be in his main article, if it isn't there already. He isn't specifically out to kill kage and besides, Sasori has a better track record. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 23:47, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

I've tried multiple times to translate what the grave says in the manga, but although they look like pretty legible kanji, there's no way I can make sense of them.

I don't see any evidence supporting his death considering the amount of times he has slipped away from it. For all we know he could unseal himself from Susanoo or the implantations on Kabuto could turn into him, etc.

Since oro was once in a female body doesn't that mean we should put his gender as female also? I'm Still Kinda confused how that would work, but we list for all timelines during the series, right?--Nintendo-Fan (talk) 07:59, December 28, 2009 (UTC)Nintendo-Fan

He had a females body, but he himself was never female.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 14:16, December 28, 2009 (UTC)
Technically, the term "gender" isn't appropriate in this context. What you are talking about is "sex." The term "sex" refers to the biological traits of an organism that determine if one is male or female. The term "gender", on the other hand, is the social construct of masculinity and femininity. So really, gender is completely unrelated.--Enoki911 (talk) 04:21, January 4, 2010 (UTC)


Friend of mine claimed that Kishimoto said in the databook that Orochimaru's real name is Yashagoro. I not only do not have the databooks, but I wouldn't even know how to go about finding them. ^_^

So, like, is this true or was he just pulling my leg? (talk) 03:41, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Your friend is both right and wrong.
He's wrong in that Orochimaru's real name was said to be Yashagoro in the databooks. This is simply not true, or I must have overlooked something.
He's right in that the character on whom Naruto's Orochimaru is based, the Orochimaru from the Japanes tale Jiraiya Gōketsu Monogatari was called Yashagorō, before he turned to snake magic and betrayed his teacher Jiraiya. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 04:03, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Asking Kabuto if his blood was type-a

In episode 46, Orochimaru for some reason asks why Kabuto was Type-A. Why did he ask this, and why did he look sad or disappointed when Kabuto told him he was Type-AB? Did this have some significance to Kabato needing bodies or something else I missed? -- (talk) 12:30, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

It has to do with the Japanese superstition that your blood type dictates your personality. Type As are calm, sensitive, responsible, overcautious, and stubborn. Type ABs are cool, composed, rational, and indecisive. A type A would make a good, loyal servant,albeit one that is prone to being obsessive compulsive. Type ABs can make great villains and spies, but they are difficult to understand and can be dangerous because of that. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 12:55, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Multiple Snakes

The line in the article is given as "A single white snake escaped from Susanoo, but was later killed by Amaterasu's black flames.[4]" The reference is [4] ↑Naruto Chapter 394 - Page 03

This is wrong. Given as a reference (Naruto Chapter 393 - Page 01) it can be seen in the top left panel that there are three snakes that escape from Susanoo. It is suggested then that the line is changed to "Three white snakes escaped from Susannoo, and one of them was later shown being killed by Amaterasu's black flames. The fate of the other two snakes is unknown."

I'd do it myself, but the page has been locked. (talk) 03:28, June 5, 2010 (UTC)DK

Only one snake was shown separatining from the giant snake, and it was killed--Deva 27 (talk) 03:33, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
Incorrect, and even if taken from that erroneous point of view, irrelevant. The three snakes escaped from the larger snake(s) created by the Eight Branches Technique. Even if it was wrongfully accepted that only one snake came from the Eight Branches Technique, the other snakes are there, and are of Orochimaru origin, which can be seen both in their white scales and the shadows around their eyes. They should be mentioned in some way, if the given sentence is not to be altered. (talk) 04:23, June 5, 2010 (UTC) DK

Some Details

From the background section:

"While Orochimaru's ambitions did include becoming the Fourth Hokage..."
"Realizing that he had hit a dead end in his quest to become the ultimate being and therefore had nothing to gain from staying in Konoha, Orochimaru began to be less discreet with his actions."
"The loss of the title of Hokage has led him to be less discreet with the kidnapping, which led to it being connected to him."

When was it ever said Orochimaru wanted to become Hokage and that the loss of this title to Minato led him to become less discreet in his illicit actions? —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 09:51, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

I think Sheik's talking about Ch 512 P 6 - last panel, but all he says is "That Bastard Orochimaru..." ~ Fmakck©TalkContributions ~ 20:33, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
Chapter 121 covers those points depending on how you read the scenes. Hiruzen says he couldn't pick Orochimaru for Hokage because of his way of thinking; granted that doesn't say anything about Orochimaru's interest in the position, but being a Kage doesn't seem like something that can be forced on you. The ANBU in the flashback indicate that Orochimaru has been acting more suspicious [than usual] recently; granted there's no indication of where in the timeline this occurs. ~SnapperTo 20:56, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
I think Ibiki said that Orochimaru wanted to become Hokage (beginning of chapter 116 I think).--LeafShinobi (talk) 21:33, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
I do love it when things just turn out right.
From chapter 116, pages 3–4:
Dude: "...And why did he become a nukenin...?" (「………それで 何で抜け忍なんかに…」)
Ibiki: "It's been a long time... It was during the time that the Fourth Hokage was being chosen... I heard that Orochimaru claimed that he most of all had the calibre for the job... It seems he wasn't accepted, though, now was he... Shortly after, he escaped the village... It's likely Orochimaru has resented the Third Hokage ever since." (「昔な…四代目 火影を決める時だ…大蛇丸は自分こそ その器だと主張したそうだ………受け入れてはもらえなかったそうだがな…それから少しして奴は この里を抜けた………おそらく大蛇丸はその事から三代目を恨んでる」)
Dude: "Revenge...?!" (「復讐…!?」)
Ibiki: "Probably." (「おそらくな」)
Orochimaru might not have particularly wanted the Hokage title, but he certainly believed he should have been offered it.

Well, 1+1 = 2 -Kabuto's knowledge of So6p -Sasuke's Uchiha body with Sharingan -Hashirama Senju's DNA/cells

Looks like he was about the same as Madara and Danzo. In Sasuke's body with Hashirama's power, he would be able to use Izanagi and controll The Nine-Tails not to say with Sasuke's MS now read the Sage's Tablet. So I think that Orochimaru's goal of learning every possible technique and becoming the ultimate being is the same thing Madara want ... So6p power. --Elveonora (talk) 17:01, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think Izanagi or Madara having Senju and Uchiha DNA doesn't have anything to do with his Eye of the Moon Plan.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 17:07, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for the late response. This is what I'm talking about-> Oro at the very least knew about the plan to revive the Jubi.

What he really wanted?

Recent chapters have shown that Kabuto and Orochimaru have researched and hypothesized that the Sharingan can become a Rinnegan, and that Orochimaru also had knowledge of both the ten tails and the sage. If this is the case, doesn't this indicate very strongly that he was after the Rinnegan? It would make sense too, considering how much power it brings. I think it is noteworthy to include this tidbit of information.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Not just Rinnegan, power of So6p. I think it should be stated in the article. Kabuto's goals are Orochimaru's goals. Kabuto is after Sage's power. Orochimaru's lust for Sasuke's body and experiments with Hashirama's DNA + Madara Rinnegan stuff clearly indicate what he was after. --Elveonora (talk) 13:35, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

From what has been said Orochimaru sought immortality as a means to lean every technique in the world. It's not a shock that he would experiment on the Rinnegan which belonged to the Sage of the Six Realms who was the creator of ninjutsu.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 13:54, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

I am guessing Danzo gave Oroichimaru sharingan to implant into him. As for Oro wanting Itachi and later Sasuke's I think he was after particularly strong sharingan.Umishiru (talk) 17:13, December 31, 2011 (UTC)

Well I guess it is that or Kishi just didn't have done the story in order, few things are different form one point to another...Just I don't think Danzo was so powerful, and if Orochimaru was in urge for Sahringan he could have easily have made Danzo get killed and steal the Sharingan from him...I think Kishi actually never even think of Danzo in first part, and putted him in second part as a part of famous Naruto rival story( Kakashi Guy, Rok Lee Neji, Sasuke Naruto, Ino Sakura...)...Never the less I'm not mentioning that as a discussion, I'm just mentioning it more as one of Kishimoto's few mistakes that are not so much important, showing us that Kishimoto, with his talent in story and drawing is as we all human who sometimes makes a mistakes what is in human nature...YamatoTakeru (talk) 17:57, December 31, 2011 (UTC)

I'd like to remind the two that this isn't a forum. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:21, December 31, 2011 (UTC)

Legacy review.

"Orochimaru's chakra continues to exist in his former students, such as Anko Mitarashi, through the Cursed Seals he branded them with"

- Should this now be changed/reworded since Kabuto now has the remains of Orochis chakra that was lingering within Anko? SusanooUnleashed (talk) 14:23, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Not sure. Kabuto did say he'd use the chakra, but that doesn't necessarily means that Anko was depleted of Orochimaru's chakra. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 14:38, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

I'll go back though the manga and find the part where I'm sure he said he'd drained all the remaining chakra. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 14:41, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

On this page here [1] he has her on the seal and says "Power is flowing into me. Then on this page [2] he says the bonding is stronger and Orochis power is incredible. So I'd say he has drained her of all remaining chakra? SusanooUnleashed (talk) 15:34, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

I agree, I believe all or at least most of the chakra has been drained. ROBO731 (Talk) Mangekyō Sharingan Itachi 15:46, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

And none of those, in anyway, imply that Anko no longer has any Orochimaru chakra left in her. It simply shows he is draining her. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:44, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

That's a good point. Maybe we should wait for more clarification. ROBO731 (Talk) Mangekyō Sharingan Itachi 16:47, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Well I edited his legacy but forgot to come here first =_=" I think what I put there may satisfy(lool ;D) everyone here. I don't think we should say he's drained her completely either, you never know Anko might get up and rage in a stage 2.—Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 16:48, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

The edit looks good to me ! ROBO731 (Talk) Mangekyō Sharingan Itachi 16:52, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Ah, thank you Cerez ^__^ Much better, and more up to date. While I do think it should mention he is currently draining it at this moment as Omni has said, this shall suffice I suppose until we see what becomes of Anko and her situation. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 01:26, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Error in saying he is dead when referring to what suigetsu found in the most recent chapter. It should instead say sealed or incapacitated. --Kotoamatsukami (talk) 19:04, February 16, 2012 (UTC)

Quick question.

After the Third sealed Orochis arms, does this mean he can no longer use them again even if he was to swap bodies? Now I've read the manga and watched the anime but just can't remember. I'm still half asleep and it's frustrating trying to remember, haha. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 21:10, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

After he transferred to Gen'yūmaru, he regain the use of his arms. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 21:13, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

You see, now this is where the DDCS annoys me. Why is that he can regain the use, if the "soul arms" of his soul had been cut and sealed within the DDCS with the Third? SusanooUnleashed (talk) 21:16, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

I guess he transfers his mind, thus gaining control over Gen'yūmaru's soul (and body). Jacce | Talk | Contributions 21:20, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

No one knows for sure ... maybe he uses the soul part of arms of the host's souls he has stole. I have always believed that by sealing off his arms, Hiruzen took Orochimaru's techniques. Maybe the tattoos all over his body have something to do with him being able to use them. -- (talk) 16:09, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

The tattoos on his arms were just summoning tattoos, to summon snakes. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:19, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

Orochimaru's appearance info?

In the info section about Orochimaru-sama's appearance there are two faults that I would like to address... It states that Orochimaru's tomoe-shaped earrings are "blue", when it is clearly evident that they are of some kind of metal and therefore is metal coloured.

It also states that the colour of Orochimaru’s eyes is "amber"????? I have seen both the animated series and read the manga and in both of them Orochimaru's eyes have always been depicted as GOLDEN. You can compare by looking at pictures of Konan's eyes, they are amber coloured and does not at all resemble the colour of Orochimaru's eyes.

I have tried to correct these mistakes, but it has been changed back every time, why? M. Gaunt --—This unsigned comment was made by MichelleGaunt (talkcontribs) .

In every instance that I can think of Orochimaru's earrings have always been somewhere between silver and blue. That as it is, every colour change cannot be accounted for. Also just because it's metal doesn't mean it can't have another colour =S As for his eye colours there's no noticeable difference between the two colours you're just nitpicking unnecessarily.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 12:00, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

3rd coffin

Has it been revealed what the 3rd coffin would be if the 3rd hokage wouldn't of have stopped it? Would it have been minato? :o—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Yes it would. But the summoning failed due to Minato being sealed. The line about 3rd did stop the summoning was a mistranslation, he only said he had to prevent Minato being summoned. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 17:35, March 18, 2012 (UTC)

Imperfect Snake Sage Mode

Is it safe to assume that Orochimaru's True form is simply an Imperfect Snake Sage mode.

Think, Jiraya's Imperfect Sage mode turned him into a frog, or darn near close to one, with fewer human characteristics.

Orochi's form was very snakelike compared to Kabuto's and makes this connection.

I understand this is speculation, but I feel this should at least be mentioned somewhere on the page, or perhaps in Sage Mode.—This unsigned comment was made by Naruhina00 (talkcontribs) .

If you understand it's speculation, then you'll also understand being told no and that it's not allowed in the articles.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 15:18, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

I support this for a single reason, his ultimate technique transforms him into a "Dragon God" --Elveonora (talk) 16:36, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Becoming the "Dragon God" didn't say anything about it being Sage Mode. In fact, Kabuto already said that by gaining the ability to enter Sage Mode, he surpassed Oro, implying he didn't have it. Heck, Kabuto said that Orochimaru dreamed of going to the Dragon Cave, but he never said he actually did manage to get there. Skitts (talk) 16:39, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

While it is still unclear what the "secret" Jugo and Suigetsu found, I would guess it has something to do with Snake Sage Mode, and a way to manufacture the results, or get around it somehow, leading to his True Form's shape. And Orochimaru DID find Ryūchidō. That much is obvious, so my point stands that in some way shape or form, Orochimaru's White Snake for is most likely an Imperfect Sage mode. Naruhina00 (talk) 16:59, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

It was said Orochimaru's host bodies could not handle the natural energy, not Orochimaru himself. His true body is the white snake. Also he was able to come out of Sasuke's Cursed Mark (which is also somehow related to Sage Mode) and also the Dragon God technique. EDIT: Well, it was stated that Orochimaru got the White Snake form through experimentations on his own body. But is not the Dragon God technique Sage Mode ? "According to the third databook, this technique transcends the "Snake", and becomes like a "Dragon God" Similar to what Kabuto said. --Elveonora (talk) 17:17, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

I agree with the above couple posters, based on the fact that he can become the 'Dragon God', as well as the fact that his sage mode situation with Kabuto appears to be just like Jiraiya's with Naruto. Kabuto said that Oro wasn't able to become a ***true*** sage, just like Jiraiya isn't a ***true*** sage because he was unable to perfect sage mode, just like Naruto and Kabuto did, ergo, it meant he had imperfect sage mode, same as Jiraiya. edit: Also, mangastream's (I trust them over the others) TL of it said that Oro did gain the abilities of sage mode, but his body couldn't completely bear them, which again reads imperfect sage mode.Jetdeagon (talk) 04:30, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

@Elveonora Similar!=same thing. Raikiri is similar to Rasenshuriken in that it's created through nature and shape transformation, but that's about as far as those similarities go. Orochimaru became Uber-Snake man, Kabuto grew horns out the back of his head. Skitts (talk) 07:22, March 27, 2012 (UTC)

Skitts, that's a bit flawed in logic. Kabuto had a perfect Sage Mode, where Oro was never able to attain perfection. It's like the differences between Naruto's and Jiraiya's Sage Modes. Alexdhamp (talk) 20:00, June 12, 2012 (UTC)
Why are people assuming that Orochimaru has a Sage Mode in the first place? If at any point you use the toad's Sage Mode to benchmark the snake's Sage Mode then your argument is invalid. We were never told that the two mode while using the same natural energy operates the same way. Suppose for snakes once you can't handle/master it completely there is no "Imperfect" mode? --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 01:38, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Dragon Cave?

Did Orochimaru train at the dragon cave? The way I'm reading it on mangareader is that he did in order to learn how to extend his neck but at the same he didn't cause Kabuto said he surpassed Orochimaru and was able to train there. Also, if he did then why isn't it mentioned in his background? Joshbl56 20:10, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Confusion.. haha

If I'm not mistaken, did it state that in Ch. 583 that Orochimaru is a Root member alongside Danzo? —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 10:58, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

It was never said that those people were Root members.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 11:02, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
I'm just having the confusion since Orochimaru was beside Danzō on guard O_o —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 11:05, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
Logic dictates it was a Root operation. ANBU wouldn't just walk around and say "ANBU is planning on doing this-that-and-this" with random ninja around. Also Root really suits Orochimaru.--TheUltimate3 ~Keeper of Lore~ 11:11, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, also Ch.6 showed his face more. So I think he is. —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 11:16, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Orrr It could just be a collaboration. Those two seem to have been working together for quite some time now. Though Root and being an Anbu fits Orochimaru decently, we just don't know.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 11:24, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Ah I see. I hope the manga would uncover Kabuto's secrets more, though. Yeah it really is nice in the ear that Orochimaru was a Root member. —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 11:30, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

It makes sense for him to be a root member. So Hiruzen's student was plotting against Konoha with Danzo all along "_" --Elveonora (talk) 13:02, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Not against. Root has never plotted against the village.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 13:05, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Well, missions that Hiruzen would not agree with--Elveonora (talk) 13:07, April 18, 2012 (UTC)


Why is nobody mentioning he was in roots?Recent manga shows he was working with Danzo!Also at some point he did help Danzo implant shishui's sharingan!—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Orochimaru said to Kabuto

Hi! Just a question, on [3] here. he said that he also want to know who really he is. Does that mean that he's also had identity crisis? Or just another manipulation? —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 10:17, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Very hard to say anything. But nothing has been mentioned about oro's parents. So oro might be facing an identity crisis--Salil Uchiha Symbol (talk) 12:32, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah and his affiliation was also unclear. —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 12:33, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
Orochimaru's parents died in the Third Shinobi War iirc. --Speysider (Talk Page) 12:35, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
No they didn't. Orochimaru's parents were dead before even the 2nd Shinobi World War. o.o Skitts (talk) 14:36, April 30, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah they're all dead. But I was really curious about what Oro said to Kabuto... —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me|My Wiki) 16:05, April 30, 2012 (UTC)

Number of Missions

In the data book (1 i believe) it says his number of missions and says "during leaf years". Is it okay if i or someone puts that in the trivia? --NaruFan

Where else would he have gotten official missions though o.O? When he founded Otogakure he wouldn't have went on missions since he was its leader.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 00:26, June 6, 2012 (UTC)
We really don't know that. The third hokage was the leader of the leave and he still went on S rank missions. So I think so others wont get confused it would be okay to put it.--NaruFan

I disagreed. Those could be the lists of the missions he went on before Hiruzen took the title of Hokage.--NinjaSheik 00:48, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure he left for a mission in one of konahumaru's flash backs. Episode (talk) 01:38, June 6, 2012 (UTC)NaruFan
You juust brought up the anime; 'nuff said. The closest thing in canon in which Hiruzen has been on a mission was his discovery of Orochimaru's Hashirama-DNA experiments. And even that wasn't an actual mission, so much as it was an investigation into his student's noted odd behavior as of late. Skitts (talk) 06:12, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

I was reading through this and I agree with NaruFan. Just because he is the leader of the sound village doesn't mean he doesn't go on missions. Like when he was going to destroy the leaf, he was there. As will when he went with Kabuto to that Bridge, he could have gone on more missions like that. Now if those are real misions or not we can't say there not. So I dont see why we cant follow the databook and put. (during leaf years) (talk) 17:48, July 4, 2012 (UTC)Hinata4ev


Isn't it weird that "Orochimaru couldn't use his arms and powers" while after he switched a body, the arms appeared okay and he used techniques against Naruto/Kurama, also now walks around without a host body and his arms appear healthy, can move them and was able to absorb power from Kabuto? Kinda confusing--Elveonora (talk) 14:30, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

I think Suigetsu meant when Sasuke stabbed him through his hands.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:32, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
He used ninjutsu after transferring into Gen'yūmaru's body (summoning the Triple Rashomon for example), so he definitely did regain use of his arms.--BeyondRed (talk) 14:38, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

He wasn't there to see the battle 0_o he said that Orochimaru was unable to use his arms due to them being sealed and likely still can't, while opposite is shown--Elveonora (talk) 14:43, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

You can't really ask me this though since people talk to one another. Sasuke may have told him otherwise i don't know why Suigetsu remember Orochimaru in that position.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:55, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Is it worthy a trivia or at least a line in the article? Something like: "it's indicated that Orochimaru shouldn't be able to use his arms and powers, but it doesn't appear to be a case" or "Suigetsu suggested that Orochimaru's arms are still be affected with the Dead Demon Consuming Seal" etc.--Elveonora (talk) 15:04, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

I think what he means is that after three years, the effects of the Dead Demon Consuming Seal is returning to Orochimaru's hands, and will keep doing so as long as his current body is weakening. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 16:23, July 10, 2012 (UTC)


As Orochimaru's chakra inside someone has a part of his consciousness, can we say that by absorbing his chakra within Kabuto he gained knowledge of all of Kabuto's techniques?Undominanthybrid (talk) 15:54, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

speculative and pointless--Elveonora (talk) 15:57, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Exactly. But speculation is not new here. (talk) 15:59, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

There are logical conclusions (us saying that Storm Release was water and lightning before the fanbook confirmed it, and even then, we worded everything to show this was not set in stone at the time), and there's this. Different things. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:18, July 10, 2012 (UTC)


"Everything... will be mine", no last words anymore, I think more in "last words before being sealed inside Sasuke.". --MaskedManMadara (talk) 22:05, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Orochimaru is not a Sage Mode user.

He tried to achieve it but failed, only getting far to use Senjutsu in a limited capacity. The manga goes out of its way to say he doesn't have it as well.--NaruHina fan (talk) 00:49, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

No, it doesn't ... either provide some source/proof or stop making pointless edit-wars. Not to mention there really isn't reason to bring the same topic on another page--Elveonora (talk) 00:51, July 11, 2012 (UTC) immediately tried to gain that ability, but, he hadn't find the right body to bear that ability... Just using Senjutsu isn't enough, since if that was the case Naruto would be a Sage Mode user when he finished his Toad Oil training. Or during it.--NaruHina fan (talk) 00:54, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Your logic is really flawed ... I don't want to offend you, but take a chill. The link doesn't say what ur suggesting--Elveonora (talk) 01:00, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

We should get rid of the legacy section.

He's alive again.. it's pretty much confirmed.. so there's no reason for it to be here anymore. If the info is important enough, we should change it to "Impact in the series" or something. I'm so giddy with his revival, I just want every implication that he's dead to be corrected. Anyone agree? --M4ND0N (talk) 00:57, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

i don't agree....because that's just a manifestation of him in the curse seal..and if we say that he is alive then we should say all the ressurected shinobis are alive..Saeyatachi (talk) 01:42, July 11, 2012 (UTC)Saeyatachi

"SIGH" it's no manifestation, it's Orochimaru himself revived ... Orochimaru's state is different from Edo Tensei, even though I'm for a "reincarnated" status for Madara. Oro was literary reborn in the latest chapter--Elveonora (talk) 01:50, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, this is reminding me a lot of our Madara is alive debate. There's a huge difference. Sae. Madara is an Edo, and Orochimaru is alive. He split his consciousness into his cursed seals, so this new body of his is just as much Orochimaru as the one that was sealed by Itachi. He's alive.. hence why the chapter was called, "Orochimaru's Revival." There should be no debate necessary, since the rest of the wiki seems to agree that he's alive, since his "incapacitated" status was removed. --M4ND0N (talk) 02:11, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Just so you know, one person protesting is enough not to change something and one day not nearly long enough to implement something. I'm against it since "legacy" is the standardised heading so leave it at legacy. Yes it's supposed to be for dead people but technically Orochimaru is/was dead, it's just his consciousness given form and what not (but that's not the issue here).--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 11:39, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

It's weird. Yes from the Itachi Pursuit arc he has been dead and had a nice long legacy written out, but now here he is. His death did have ripples across the story and what not and thus the Legacy section. Weird.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 11:54, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

So was Kakashi, but we still treated him as a living person after his revival. Orochimaru is just as alive as he was before Sasuke absorbed him.. so there's really no sense in arguing over the authenticity of his living status. --M4ND0N (talk) 15:49, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Kakashi wasn't dead long enough to get a legacy section. I'd assume that's why he and Gaara don't or wouldn't have them. Orochimaru's been dead/ was dead for quite some time and I don't think because he's now revived means the section should be removed. Suppose he ups and dies again, then is revived the dies? Is the section heading going to be changed everytime? --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 15:54, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

The contents of the legacy section should just be placed in the main article because Orochimaru is clearly alive and just as alive as he was throughout Part I and Part II so titling that section "Legacy" makes it seem he is still dead, which he isn't. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 15:56, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Being alive or dead is technically, irrelevant to a Legacy. Look over it, nothing in it can technically fit anywhere else, because he himself did nothing. The section is as the name suggest talking about what they left to the world. When Orochiamaru was dead, it influenced a whole lot of crap is mentioned there. He didn't suddenly not influenced a whole lot of crap now that he isn't dead.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 17:44, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

That's why I opted to rename the section "Impact", to make it less misleading. --M4ND0N (talk) 17:49, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Influence or something would probably sound better. Either way, that leads to the issue Cerez mentioned, where if he dies again are we just gonna change the name back to Legacy, when we could just keep it as Legacy and thus uniform throughout the articles.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 17:55, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

In that case, all we'd need to do is change the word back to legacy. Obviously Orochimaru is destined to die, since he's a major villain.. But as of right now he's alive, and we don't know how long he's going to stay. The series could go for a few more years, for all we know, so we have to assume that Orochimaru isn't going to die anytime soon, and act accordingly. Since he isn't currently dead, not opting to change the name of the section which would take a few seconds, just because he'll eventually die is kind of a silly reason. I agree with you about changing it to Influence though. --M4ND0N (talk) 18:00, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Thats just it. There's little point in doing something if you expect to undo it at a later date.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 18:31, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Why do you assume he is going to die? You know that Kishi can pull anything from his arse, better not to predict things--Elveonora (talk) 22:16, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

I like the way page is now with the Legacy section but we should change the ending by just mentioning that he was revived. The way it is now isn't really something you would add to that kind of section. Joshbl56 22:54, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

sorry...i thought he was really dead because in his article it say's that "even if his true body is destroyed or HIS soul is sealed" or something like that. And about him having a split personality inside someone else(curse seal) reminds of of Joker in batman beyond,joker having a part of his mind inside robin..i'm not saying we should compare those two but i think the revived Oro is somewhat like a clone(though not a bunsin jutsu). please correct me if i'm wrong.thanksSaeyatachi (talk) 00:33, July 12, 2012 (UTC)Saeyatachi

No, don't want to speculate but Oro was never likely sealed by Totsuka Blade, only the giant snake. He could transfer his soul/mind into Anko in the last moment. But the current Oro isn't a clone or something for sure, because if only chakra and flesh were enough, we would have Hashirama's running around or something :P The only "proof" I have for this argument is that Anko was given the Cursed Seal some time before Part I. and the Oro that came out knows Sasuke thus has all the memories and all--Elveonora (talk) 01:02, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

exactly,all i"m saying is that it's not entirely impossible that Orochimaru to be revived,cause reviving here is not new anymore..but the way it happens is he was revived through a curse seal,(not yet sure if his real soul,maybe just a part of his soul) and remember there are tons of curse seal,giving him an indefinite chance to be revived,cause we're not yet sure if this can be done only to anko's curse seal and not the others. So if we list him as revived we might as well list Madara as alive too cause even though his REAL body is alive, atleast we're sure that his REAL soul is active and fighting..i say we just wait for the next chapters...--Saeyatachi (talk) 01:48, July 12, 2012 (UTC)Saeyatachi

The manga confirms that it's possible to separate a part of a soul (Orochimaru's arms, likely Kurama) reminds me of Harry Potter 0_o and no, Madara isn't alive cause the state is just "temporary permanent" if that makes any sense, like false existence (I'm for reincarnated though)--Elveonora (talk) 01:55, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

oh yeah :)...i almost forgot about that...thanks for reminding me..heheSaeyatachi (talk) 02:25, July 12, 2012 (UTC)Saeyatachi

hey,why is orochimaru's status isn't deceased anymore? i thought it's still open for discussion?Saeyatachi (talk) 07:17, July 12, 2012 (UTC)Saeyatachi

There's nothing much to discuss, the majority agrees that he is alive, even the chapter is called as such--Elveonora (talk) 07:49, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

ah okay then--Saeyatachi (talk) 07:52, July 12, 2012 (UTC)Saeyatachi

Why is the heading of one little section such cause for concern? Yes Orochimaru is alive and a legacy section isn't going to have people believing he's dead just because it's there, while the rest of the article says otherwise. Persons following the series should at least know what is going on and those new to it/just reading this can pick up on it in the article.
Also about Vold-I mean Orochimaru's horcuxes.I don't think it's that strange a concept for Naruto: life force is a powerful thing seen from Hashirama's almost consuming Danzō and creating clones on whomever tries to use his cells. It's just Orochimaru's life force "consciousness" that he left in Anko, given flesh to create a corporeal form with, essentially "reviving" Orochimaru.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 09:15, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

It's really very similar concept to horcruxes, it appears that even a bit of soul is sufficient for revival, and that Orochimaru's mind is somehow in his chakra, thus making him one entity but at multiple places at the same time or something? 0_o exactly like Voldemort ... shouldn't we note it in trivia that Orochimaru and Voldemort are similar, like snake theme, horcruxes and all.--Elveonora (talk) 10:57, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Maybe, Orochimaru has so many parallels with Voldemort I think it is worth a shot. They both have pale skin, snake motifs, are obsessed with power and immortality, and now he has that horcrux-like thing. Shadow Abyss (talk) 17:14, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Loool it's true. I wouldn't be opposed to adding a note to that effect.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 20:50, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Please don't do that. I've seen enough jokes about that for years to last a five lifetimes. I'm surprising the whole comparing Lord V and Orochimaru is just be brought up now. I seriously seen a lot of forums and YouTube comments saying the same thing about them over and over again.--NinjaSheik 21:00, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

It's not like Kishi isn't a crazy genius and all, but he tends to copy a lot of stuff from other media, and you can do it Cerez 0_o, @Sheik, you didn't know? Oro is a hybrid between Voldemort and Michael Jackson (jk) --Elveonora (talk) 21:02, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I hear jokes about that, too. Too many, it hurts my brain. And I don't like it.--NinjaSheik 21:07, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Now that Shiek mentions it, I might not be all for adding the trivia point any more XD But at least we know now why Orochimaru's last name is unknown, "Riddle" would have been an instant giveaway.troll.png --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 21:31, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, thank God! :) If you were to add that trivia (joke), you might as well invite the DBZ fans to add that Naruto in Chakra Mode is like going into Super Saiyan. I seriously don't like stuff like that. I know it's all good fun and games to compare stuff like that, but I just don't like it for some reason--NinjaSheik 21:37, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Are we joking now or 100% serious? :O I think a trivia is worthy, something like: "Orochimaru might be a nod to Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter series, as this and that"--Elveonora (talk) 21:50, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

I'm serious. And besides, I worry that if you guys do that, many others will take this as an okay as even including Micheal Jackson into this! I've seen as many comparisons to Lord Orochimaru and MJ, too. This could lead to other fans seeing this as an "okay" to start adding trivia to other characters that may or may not resemble characters from different show. I don't even want to begin to imagine how many Dragon Ball similarities that fans can think of to put on the wiki. For example, Son Gokū, and well, yeah, you guys know.--NinjaSheik 21:57, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Oh right (no idea about Dragom Ball fans though) "looking at sage mode talkpage" makes sense, people exaggerate and twist everything--Elveonora (talk) 22:05, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Yep, they do. I know it's mostly for fun, but still. That's probably why I hate when people compare characters/things that may or may not be the same.--NinjaSheik 22:09, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Can someone tell me when Orochimaru used Shadow Clone Jutsu?-- (talk) 06:11, July 13, 2012 (UTC)JackSpicer305

He used it in chapter 50, next time you should read the talk pages to see if your question has already been asked. TricksterKing (talk) 07:34, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

Arms restored?

Man, been awhile since I've posted. Mostly because you all have been doing such a great job. There's one thing that's confused me in the latest chapter, and I've looked through these discussions and haven't come across it, that I know of, so I have one question about Orochi as of the latest chapter. Since his body has been "re-born" from the flesh of Kabuto, does this mean the use of his arms have been restored? SusanooUnleashed (talk) 10:25, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

Too early to say, but I think he's had use of his arms since he had to take a replacement body due to Sasuke not arriving on time, we've seen him do summons and attacks using his arms. TricksterKing (talk) 11:07, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

We have never seen him using hand seals since then though, the powers he has used could be due to his tattoos all over the body, the physical defect might have been cured, but I don't think the souls eaten by Death God is back--Elveonora (talk) 20:59, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

Body condition?

Around the time Sasuke absorbed Orochimaru, Orochimaru was said by Kabuto to be in urgent need of a body transfer, yet when we see him in chapter 593 he seems to be in perfect condition. Any explanation for this?-- (talk) 21:30, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

In chapter 593, it's his own body. During the earlier time, it was Gen'yumaru's body failing him--Elveonora (talk) 21:34, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
