I didin't understand very well that thing about "revival"...Orochimaru "injects" some part of his consciousness into the ones he bites with his juinjutsu and then that "piece of his mind" takes his form with the flesh of the host ?--[[Special:Contributions/177.33.246.101|177.33.246.101]] ([[User talk:177.33.246.101|talk]]) 23:20, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

At least in the anime (I don't remember it in the manga) when Oro was about to suck Sasuke's neck to give him the Curse Mark, his face appeared all fucked up, any idea as of why?--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 21:46, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

I noticed that a large majority of character's intros have been changed completely on the wiki. Personally I feel that the previous introductions were much better compared to these new ones. They were more informative, more specific and more like a personal biography introduction. This new introductions are simply awful... And need to be carefully revised and re-written.

Are you saying that Orochimaru's introduction is bad? If you are, then don't make generalisations about '''all''' of the intro's. The wikia is an on-going project, so that means of course we arent going to get everything perfect, and there will be some disagreements about the way we deal with certain aspects of it. Instead of complaining and calling '''ANY''' part of the wikia bad or "''terrible''" then actually do what you're supposed to do as an editor and edit it.--'''NaviiGator''' <small>''('''A.K.A.'''KotoSenju)''</small><sup><small>[[user talk: Koto Senju|Talk Page]]-[[Special:Contributions/Koto Senju|My Contributions]]</small></sup> 19:30, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

I'm talking about all the introductions that have been changed. The previous ones were much better, I'm not saying everything has to be perfect but your aim is to make everything better and as informative as possible. I just feel (and I'm sure many others do too) that the previous introductions were much better. If you ask me, I think you should change them back. These new introductions are just plain bad. If it was down to me, I'd keep the old intros but of course I'd be penalised for doing so. [[User:Pecnut|Pecnut]] ([[User talk:Pecnut|talk]]) 20:33, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
   
== His height? ==
+
:The changes were pirmarily done by Snapper2, in an effort to make the introductions, well more like introductions and less like "TL;DR summaries of the entire article". I don't disagree that that to that end, the introductions need work, otherwise why not just actually have a "Summary" section at the top of the pages and leave the intros as "This is X".--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 20:41, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
   
Sorry, but why is orochimaru's height decreased? in part 1 it's 179,4 cm and in part 2 it's decreased to 172 cm? are you sure it's not wrong? it's really strange that someone's height is shortened...
+
I want to analyze the old intro:
eh, sorry. the weight too?
+
::''served as the central antagonist for the majority of the series during Part I but later became a secondary antagonist during Part II''
  +
:Out-of-universe, which the MOS and usual practice avoids. Also leads to meaningless discussions about who the "main" antagonist is.
  +
::''Recognised as one of the most powerful ninja [[Konohagakure]] ever produced and one of the {{translation|"'''Three Legendary Shinobi'''"|伝説の三忍|Densetsu no [[Sannin]]}}''
  +
:Kept in the new.
  +
::''he operated as an [[ANBU]] [[shinobi]] within the [[Root]] faction''
  +
:Relatively new information that has little application to his overall role in the series. Is also some desperate attempt to list his rank, which is more than accomplished by "Sannin".
  +
::''prior to his defection from the village in pursuit of his own self-serving ambitions''
  +
:Kept in the new.
  +
::''Initially [[Sword of Totsuka|sealed]] away during the battle between [[Sasuke]] and [[Itachi Uchiha]] by the latter''
  +
:This was added when it was thought he was dead...
  +
::''he was later [[Evil Unsealing Method|reconstituted]] by the former using his own genetic material that was within his successor [[Kabuto Yakushi]] and a copy of consciousness he stored within [[Anko Mitarashi]]'s [[Cursed Seal of Heaven]].''
  +
:... and this was added when it was revealed it he wasn't dead. So you've got a whole sentence with about seven irrelevant links that take you in a nice circle of Orochimaru being dead but wait no he isn't. And what does this add?
  +
Is the new intro great? I guess not. But it would be better to improve it rather than cling to the problems of the old one. '''''~[[User:Snapper2|Snapper]][[User talk:Snapper2|T]][[Special:Contributions/Snapper2|o]]''''' 20:36, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

:Which is speculation. We know he got stabbed by sealing sword. We don't know what the hell that snake was.

::When it comes to Orochimaru's life it's all up in the air. It is in fact true that we have no idea what those snakes would have gone on to do, but people speculate that he would have been revived through one of them which is not unbelievable, still, as it is now, he was sealed by the sword.--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 17:05, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
   
Speculation is saying he got sealed, as later manga chapters and logic disprove such. There would be no reason to draw panels with snakes escaping and getting killed if it were just random/generic snakes/summons. It was obviously Orochimaru escaping the sealing, for further detail http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Elveonora#Re:_Kusanagi_-_Oro_edit and http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:TheUltimate3#Kusanagi_-_Oro_edit --[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 17:13, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure if a silhouette from 600+ chapters back is any indication of dual-wielding. We are yet to see him use two blades at once--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 17:53, February 19, 2014 (UTC)
   
1) Yes.
+
== his "Sagehood" and related stuff ==
2) Speculation on my part, but it explains why he didn't need to use the Releasing Method to pop out of the seal.
 
3) Indeed. Because Sealed in permanent genjutsu = deader than dead.
 
4) And Orochimaru had his consciousness alive and well in Anko's seal. How else would he be aware of everything that Anko is aware of in respects to the war if he was chillin in dead world all this time?
 
5) And you know this how?
 
6) Kishimoto doesn't make many things obvious. It seems obvious to you because it helps reach a conclusion that makes sense to you. When you are forced to look at things objectively, you are left with more questions than answers, hence it's not certain
 
   
* at least on something you agree with me
+
Okay, I think it should be looked at again. Seelentau, can you please assist us with this, what exactly word by word did Kabuto say? And if Orochimaru isn't a Sage, how come does/did he have Senjutsu chakra and can absorb Senjutsu chakra without side effects? This is the only logical conclusion to me:
* it was a different case, as Anko had Orochimaru's chakra/consciousness sealed in her, while Sasuke Orochimaru's soul, the latter broke free because Sasuke got short on chakra so there was nothing to hold Orochimaru back
+
* Orochimaru discovers the cave and trains there
* again, there's only one soul and it's obviously walking around in a body thus was not sealed anywhere... proofs:
+
* He learns Senjutsu
# if it was possible for a soul to be hosted in 2 different bodies (Tobi-Madara originally thought) they wouldn't disprove the masked man being who is claiming to be automatically, thus it's not possible.
+
* Itachi cuts his arm off
# Anko was branded with Cursed Seal before Part I. and Orochimaru that came out of her knows everything that have happened so far, thus it's not like that one don't remember getting pwned by Sasuke and Itachi
+
* Orochimaru uses Fushi Tensei for the first time
* His soul went into Anko's Cursed Seal likely after he got burnt
+
* Is left unable to use Senjutsu properly as a consequence of that, with his host body not being strong enough to handle it properly--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 17:38, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
* "Naruto, I will never meet Jiraiya sensei again as I will be molested by Orochimaru in a drunken dream world" "Naruto, I won't meet up with Minato because I'm not really your mother, just chakra" Naruto is stupid, those things were said to make him feel better and not sad
+
:He said that Orochimaru found the Ryūchidō but couldn't gain Jūgo's ability due to the wrong body. I don't know where Orochimaru learned Senjutsu, though. [[User:Seelentau|Seelentau 愛]]<sup>[[User Talk:Seelentau|議]]</sup> 17:53, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
* as since it's not obvious to you, that's why it's being discussed now
+
::In the anime, when Orochimaru discovers the cave, he's suddenly in pain and about to barf or anything like that. Kabuto explained that Orochimaru's body was simply too weak or not suitable in general to learn sage-stuff, if I recall correctly.

:::We should disregard anime in this case and others. @Seel, didn't Kabuto say something sorts of: "even he couldn't become a true sage in the end" ? If yes, couldn't that be interpreted as him having become... an "untrue" Sage? 0_o Imperfect I mean. What do you think about my scenario, is it plausible? The only other possibility I see is that he also has Jugo's cells, but that would be speculation--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 18:12, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

+
If Orochimaru had Jugo's cells in his own body, he would've the body needed to use Senninka and to enter Sage Mode after mastering that body. Everyone who uses Senchakra is an "untrue" sage, only those who can enter Sage Mode are real sages. [[User:Seelentau|Seelentau 愛]]<sup>[[User Talk:Seelentau|]]</sup> 19:04, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

:Well, I guess that if Orochimaru has Jugo's cells, he isn't a Sage but if he doesn't and can absorb natural energy, he is one, but we don't know, so yeah, we don't know.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 19:34, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
   
::I do enjoy numbered responses.
+
I find it strange that you think someone can "un-become a Sage", because that is exactly what your argument is sounding like. I will agree that Orochimaru's situation is strange, but make to mistake, he's a Sage. Whether he can do it now or not, at one point, Orochimaru mastered senjutsu and became a Sage. That means, regardless of his current body, he still retains that ability. Given Orochimaru current host bodies are too weak to enter Sage Mode, but that doesn't mean Orochimaru is not a Sage. The ability also isn't completely lost to Orochimaru either, because Kabuto even said if Orochimaru found a strong enough host body, he could use his Sage Mode. This means, in a situation where you remove his Sage title, and Orochimaru got a stronger body, you would need to "reward" him back with his title. That sounds pointless. Just mark Orochimaru as a Sage, and then mention his current limitations under his abilities, it's that simple. There is no point making this more complicated that it already is. [[User:Omega64|Omega64]] ([[User talk:Omega64|talk]]) 16:34, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
:::2) Different and the same. It's odd. Orochimaru is odd.
+
:That sounds valid. What do others think? I guess we would need best to know again exactly what Kabuto says word by word, because the meaning and said interpretations vary from translation to translation I see it.
:::3) Except we know Tobi was in fact lying about being Madara.
+
Well, Orochimaru wouldn't be a Sage had he never managed to learn how to absorb natural energy and mold it into senjutsu chakra, which we don't know he did is the point, but as I said, I recall Kabuto's dialogue suggesting he did... and if that's true and his inability to use Sage Mode is just temporary, one simply can't "unbecome" something.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 21:35, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
:::4) Orochimaru is aware of Tobi's war. He was sealed before that war started. He said he knew what was going on because he could see it from Anko's seal. Not sure what you are getting at about him for whatever reason not remembering his defeat but /shrug.
 
:::5) Or it was always there. See how this works yet?
 
:::6) And this comes from...?
 
:::7) It's not obvious. Like I said, you believe it's obvious because it reaches a conclusion you but together. There are many things it could have meant.--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 17:36, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
   
Orochimaru's consciousness did not "shift" his consciousness is within every single person that has received his cursed seal. You're using speculation to string your own conclusions together. Sasuke could have gone to any one of the cursed seal recipients and revived Orochimaru.--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 17:43, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
+
: I'm on the fence with this one. No one denies that Orochimaru can use Senjutsu. But he's been deliberately stated to not have a body capable of Sage Mode. Its not a temporary thing like you suggest, Elve. You either have a body that can do it, or you don't. He doesn't. That's just a fact. Kabuto's dialogue only insinuates that he ''tried'' to use it and failed. Where you're getting that he was successful is over my head. Could he potentially steal a body that has such a capability? Sure. That's why he was grooming Sasuke, Kimimaru, and others capable of using the curse mark, to be his new host, but until he takes one of them, he is ''still'' unable to use Sage Mode. This is (along with other reasoning, which I am not willing to debate here) why Senjutsu cannot equate to being in the use of Sage Mode. ~ '''''[[User:Ten Tailed Fox|Ten Tailed Fox]]''''' [[File:Yamagakure Symbol.svg|14px|link=User talk:Ten Tailed Fox]] 05:58, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
   
*3) What I mean is that just as Edo Madara was revived, they found out that Tobi is not Madara. If it was possible for Tobi to be Madara as well like 1 soul 2 bodies, they wouldn't disprove it right away.
+
I think it has to do with the fact only people with "extremely large reserves of chakra" can use sage mode such as Jiraiya and Naruto, who both are 5th tier in stamina/chakra reserves. Orochimaru is only 3.5th tier himself, I think by body they mean the fact he just simply doesn't have enough chakra/stamina to even enter Sage Mode himself. He needs a body that has massive stamina/chakra. [[User:ItachiWasAHero|ItachiWasAHero]] ([[User talk:ItachiWasAHero|talk]]) 09:29, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
*4) Yes. What I'm getting at is that his chakra/mind was put into Anko before Part I. but it appears he remember everything thus getting pwned and absorbed by Sasuke, Itachi fight etc. thus it's not like this one is pre-part II. Oro and all the knowledge of current events he has is just thanks to Anko
 
*5) Sarutobi sealed a part of Oro's soul into Death guy and his arms rotted, thus it doesn't appear like it's exactly Voldemort style, thus putting a part of his soul into many cursed seals, just chakra and we know his is conscious.
 
*6) common sense and from what Kishi has established, the "Kushina" in Naruto was a chakra thus her soul being long in the pure world, while I don't think Itachi's Sword and afterlife share the same space
 
*7) we can argue for days, or make some compromises like "presumably, seemingly, it appears, likely" not stating something as 100% confirmed and clear while it's not--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 17:47, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
*8) @Cerez, only if Orochimaru's soul was available, you think there can be 10 Orochimarus walking around??? ...--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 17:47, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
   
::3)But Tobi was not Madara. The entire thing was to show that he was in fact lying. I'm no longer sure how this even relates anymore.
+
Guys, you misunderstand the manga. Kabutos words about Orochimaru's wrong body refer to Jugo's body, not to some Fushi Tensei related stuff. You need that special body to master Senninka and enter Sage Mode at the Ryuchido, but Orochimaru didn't have that body. [[User:Seelentau|Seelentau 愛]]<sup>[[User Talk:Seelentau|議]]</sup> 09:46, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
::4)Do note that anything Naruto's shadow clones learn or kno get's transferred to his original body. It is possible for knowledge to remain within the consciousness, no matter how divided it ends up.
+
:Can you word by word post the whole dialogue past the part of Kabuto stating nature to be his friend with an arm sticking outta a snake's mouth? And I don't think it's relevant what kind of body we are talking about, the topic isn't about Sage Mode, but Sage status. What defines a Sage? You say Sage Mode, but then say Pa a Ma can't use Sage Mode, yet they are Sages, therefore knowing how to absorb natural energy without cheating = Sagehood in my opinion.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 11:18, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
::5)Which helps prove my argument so I'm not sure where you are going with this.

::Isn't the "Sage" status something this Wiki invented? [[User:Seelentau|Seelentau 愛]]<sup>[[User Talk:Seelentau|議]]</sup> 11:23, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
::6)And this again helps prove my point. Kushina remained in Naruto because part of her conciousness was within Naruto's seal, just as Orochimaru remained in his Cursed Seals.
+
:::Wasn't the title of "Sage" ever accredited to Senjutsu? What you suggest is that Shima and Fukasaku are "Sages" not unlike Sage of Six Paths I get it--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 11:28, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
::7)But what I'm getting at is there is no presumably. We know how the sword works. We don't know how that snake works.--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 18:02, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

::::Huh? No, not at all. It's just that I never knew "sage" was a title officially taken from the manga. I always thought you guys made it up long ago. [[User:Seelentau|Seelentau ]]<sup>[[User Talk:Seelentau|議]]</sup> 11:32, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
   
* proved it's not possible to be in 2 different bodies at the same time, thus there can be only 1 soul in 1 body because some thought Tobi to be half Madara's soul, indicating that since Orochimaru's soul got sucked as you say by Totsuka then there shouldn't be one walking around. That's because his soul didn't get sealed.

* it's different as stuff transfer from shadow clones to original after being dispelled, in Orochimaru's case that would mean part of Oro watching from Anko since from years ago and some other part getting sucked by Itachi, this isn't Harry Potter where all souls of Voldemort were connected, unless Kishi confirms so.
 
* if Oro had separated and put part of his soul into others before, he would be long rotted
 
* yes, the difference being that Orochimaru's soul as well stayed around, not just consciousness
 
* we know how the sword works, but you can't say for sure Orochimaru's soul got sucked by it, while there obviously were the snakes around
 
* you guys are basically saying, that as long as Sasuke has Orochimaru's DNA and finds any cursed seal hosts, he can unseal as many Orochimarus as he want "herp derp"

:1)So you're going to use what people speculated outside of universe to what we we were told inside of universe? It doesn't work that way. The entire Madara/Tobi thing about what the hell he was is on a completely different level than this. We know Orochimaru had his consciousness in his seals. We have no idea what is up with Tobi and trying to link the former with fan speculations of the later will ruin your argument.
+
:Clarification: Sage was made a "Classification" I believe after Pa said something along the lines that "Naruto was a sage" after he had mastered Sage Mode. Who exactly made the classification, we'll probably never know, but it technically is not real and I think only really used as a way to quickly point out the people that this character can use Sage Mode.--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 11:59, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
:2) I'm starting to notice a very big break between our viewpoints and why this keeps going around and around. You keep pointing out souls. I keep pointing out consciousness.
+
::If he said that, that means it's a real classification and not made up. Naruto being a Sage could refer to wisdom or something of course (which he doesn't even have), but how likely it is to refer to that rather than Senjutsu mastery anyway? If anyone manages to find the chapter/episode where Pas says this, please reference it.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 12:15, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
:3) Pardon? I think this is linked to the misconception of the whole "soul vs consciousness" thing.
 
:4) Now I'm sure there is a break in viewpoints.
 
:5) That's exactly what it means. And it makes logical sense. Orochimaru's entire goal was the not die. By making it so that in the event that he does exactly that, his cursed seals will act as soul jars to keep him moving. It of course has one noticeable flaw, it requires someone else to keep bringing him back and if for whatever reason you don't want to do so, he's kinda boned.
 
::Now getting of the numbered responses, lets take a moment to address this break. You are under the impression that his soul would be sealed in the genjutsu which would make him beyond the means of revival through the Unsealing Method because his soul wouldn't be in the Pure World correct? This assumes a lot of things, one of them being the nature of the genjutsu. According to Nagato when he got sealed, the genjutsu is the afterlife. Which would mean if Orochimaru was in fact, sealed there, he was killed. But we saw Orochimaru come back, and we know it was because his chakra, and parts of his consciousness was within the seals, and when used correctly, allowed him to return, as we've seen. You bring up the white snake as proof that he wasn't sealed. You claim it was to show that he escaped. However, as I've said, I don't see it as such. I see it as foreshadowing that Orochimaru could avoid permanent death on that field and now we know he has.--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 19:14, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
   
* I'm not sure what you are on about, it isn't proved that a soul can be separated and put into multiple bodies in Naruto-verse, if it was possible, Tobi could be Madara but they automatically disproved as such after the sight of the Edo-ed real one.
+
Personally, I don't think anyone can give Orochimaru the status of "Sage". Sure he has Sage abilities but he can't enter Sage mode which is basically the cream of the crop of being a sage. For example you can't call someone who is studying for a PhD "Doctor..." Can you? Only until they have achieved that status fully by meeting all the requirements can they be called doctor, regardless of how much knowledge they have. Just because you know some Senjutsu (One technique, two techniques etc.) doesn't automatically mean that you're a sage. Only until you have achieved Sage mode, shows mastering of that area of Senjutsu and the techniques surrounding it.
* I guess so, consciousness = mind not soul.
 
* Neither Pure or Impure worlds, genjutsu dream of drunken dreams inside of a sword jar I consider a separate space from both.
 
* Again, that's not what Nagato said. It was simply to make Naruto think he goes to same place as Jiraiya
 
* Wait, wait ... I say his body got sealed but soul not as he switched to the snakes.
 
* There's flaw in your logic: You say there can be an infinite number of Orochimarus around... not it's just dumb and unlikely, but also since you say Totsuka Sword = Afterlife/Pure World, then that would mean an other Orochimaru can be brought back by Edo Tensei and there would be 2 walking around
 
--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 19:46, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
:1) I'm still not seeing how this is linked to our argument, especially with an enigma like Tobi.
 
:2) And what does that have to do with Orochimaru?
 
:3 and 4) And how do you know that is what Nagato was trying to do? How do you know he wasn't in fact going to where Jiraiya is.
 
:5) And this is where our break comes in. You say Orochimaru's soul escaped sealing. I say nothing escaped sealing and he was done in. You believe his soul somehow flew from the dead snake into Anko's seal. I'm saying nothing of the sort happened and Orochimaru's consciousness was always in the seal
 
:6) The supposed flaw in my argument suggests the idea his soul being split. I make no such assumptions. I say Orochimaru was sealed Itachi, which basically equated to him being killed. Because his chakra/consciousness was safely tucked away in his last cursed seal, he escaped permanent death. Also, we don't know if that exact thing CAN happen. It's completely in the realm of possibility because we simply don't know.
 
::And with that I suggest we stop this back and forth and let others come in. Because clearly there is a break that neither of us are going to get through discussing it amongst ourselves.

* without soul and a physical form, there's no mind/consciousness
+
Another vital point that everyone else is missing is the fact that NEVER ONCE has Orochimaru been referred to as a Sage. We've seen people call Naruto a sage, Jiraiya, Kabuto etc but when has Orochimaru ever been called "Sage" or ever referred to himself as that? So I don't think anyone has the right to call Orochimaru a Sage. Show me where Orochimaru get's called a Sage. [[User:Pecnut|Pecnut]] ([[User talk:Pecnut|talk]]) 15:46, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

:Using Senjutsu chakra means being in Sage Mode by extension, doesn't it?--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 16:08, May 27, 2014 (UTC)
* Orochimaru's chakra was always in the seal, the snakes that got burnt were obviously him because Kishimoto wouldn't bother drawing that. The way I see it, he was killed by Amaterasu but his soul stayed in the "impure world" due to his chakra still being bound to a physical form- Anko.
+
::Also, it's stated in the [[Sage|article]] that ''those that can absorb or manipulate senjutsu chakra are known as sages (仙人, sennin)''. It means that Orochimaru can be considered a sage right? Also, @Pecnut, not only that he's knowledgeable of senjutsu, but he's also able to absorb it. ~[[User:IndxcvNovelist|IndxcvNovelist]] <sup>([[User talk:IndxcvNovelist|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/IndxcvNovelist|contribs]] | [[w:c:phoenixrising|PR]] | [[w:c:springtimeofyouth|RLS]])</sup> 16:28, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

::: Orochimaru doesn't have Sage Mode. So lets drop that little crackpot theory right now. Senjutsu, yes, but can we please, for the love of all that is good and holy not start this argument ''again''? Its been argued to the death, using the same evidence and twisting of translations, extensively, four or five times now, and it always ends the same; the camp that believes Orochimaru is a Sage still believes it, and the camp that doesn't also remains unchanged. No new information has come to light, so it'd be a rehash of the same arguments used before, and I, for one, am I in no mood to see them ''again''. Just agree to disagree and be done with it.

Right, I believe Orochimaru is the most annoying character when it comes on to life and death. Nevertheless, he was sealed by the Totsuka Sword, that is what we know. Those snakes irregardless of what they '''would have''' done cannot be taken into account because we do not know '''for certain''' what would have happened if they had escaped even if it might be plain as day to you. I keep telling you that we have to record what we '''see''', not what we '''speculate''' about. It's fine and whatnot to have in his article that the two snakes ran off and got killed nonetheless but we cannot say "Orochimaru got sealed by the Totsuka Sword but right before two snakes flew off and that was obviously him but they got killed and that's how he died" technically it would be incorrect to even mention his soul "shifting" to Anko's seal '~'. If there was an official source that said yes Oro would have been reborn from those snakes that would be fine but we cannot perpetrate that on the wiki.

== Different Bodies ==
   
As for the rest of the discussion I won't bother elaborating on that because
+
I know I'm new to this kind of thing, but don't you guys think that Orochimaru should have a list of the Bodies He's Stolen? It would make a bit more sense than if you just say that he stole a lot of bodies.
* I'm not a fan of people talking about where souls go when they die in a specific way because it's simply irrelevant.
 
* I'd also like you to remember that Orochimaru's cells ''were'' in fact taking over Kabuto but he took control of them with (assuming) willpower.
 
* The same thing is painfully obvious every time someone uses Hashirama's cells and his face starts popping out of their body. I believe the [[Hashirama's Living Clone]] is also a prime example of this, sans a consciousness. Danzo had to heavily seal the arm and constantly worry about using Wood Release when he did. If that's not apparent to you then this discussion is going nowhere.--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 10:21, August 11, 2012 (UTC)

Neither one can assume and state it as a fact that Orochimaru got sealed when now he is walking around, making explanations that suit your own interpretations. I'm basing that solely on that one can't exist without a soul, a part of his soul cut (arms) caused him to rot, thus stating he put part of it to every cursed seal host contradicts that, while it was stated in manga to be just chakra. He appears to remember all the events (not talking about the knowledge of the war, like using Sasuke and all), making up that it's all connected Voldemort style is just pure speculation.

I don't understand what is happening... Firstly I think you need to understand that Orochimaru's "consciousness" and his "soul" are not the same things. Orochimaru specifically said he poured Senjutsu chakra into Anko's seal which his consciousness also inhabited. I don't understand why him undergoing necrosis, or Harry Potter has to do with this. What Sasuke did was give that consciousness that Oro left in Anko a form, work with what we get in the manga, not your own interpretations that "one cannot exist without a soul".

I agree with the arrogance part, but it's not entirely correct. He agreed himself as inferior to Itachi, even wanting Sasuke's body first so he could have stood a chance. Sasuke one the other hand, was nothing more than a vessel for him that he had underestimated, attempting to take over despite being the weaker one at the time.
 
Another example would be Madara's Edo Tensei, trying to control powers he himself can't fathom (Sharingan and Hashi's DNA lol)

yeah i know this was talked about already but his number of missions was stated as (while in the leaf village) in one of the data books. should we put it here if its in a databook[[Special:Contributions/209.56.53.1|209.56.53.1]] ([[User talk:209.56.53.1|talk]]) 18:50, December 7, 2012 (UTC) naruhina4ever

I think since the databook has put the part "while in the leaf village" i think it should be after his missions. Because who knows he could have had more missions when he was in the sound village. even though he is a leader of a village doesnt mean he doesnt go out of the village like when he went to that bridge with kabuto to see sasori that could have been a mission and since he could have went on a "mission" like that before the start of the series i think the "while in konoha" should be added.

== White Snakes ==
 
 
Should a page be created for the ability Orochimaru (and later Kabuto) uses to create white snakes from his body? Looking at how they're drawn in the manga, it would appear that the snakes he used for "[[Gathering of the Snakes]]" were of this variety, as well as the one he transformed his arm into and the ones he used for his Hidden Shadow Snake Hands and Snake Authority Spell (it was coloured white on volume 41's cover). The snakes he actually summons, including those that emerge from his mouth, are noticeably different.--[[User:BeyondRed|BeyondRed]] ([[User talk:BeyondRed|talk]]) 02:51, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
His ability to summon snakes directly from his body is already noted, or at least it should be--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 15:21, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:I was more referring to the fact that he can apparently "grow" white snakes out of his body. Kabuto used the ability a lot more, but Orochimaru had at least one clear usage (after being hit by the Totsuka Sword) and several more in the manga. At one point he literally transforms his arm into a snake, just as Kabuto did with his whole lower half. I was thinking such a page could include those techniques and Gathering of the Snakes, but come to think of it, maybe this ability could be noted on the Power of the White Snake article instead--[[User:BeyondRed|BeyondRed]] ([[User talk:BeyondRed|talk]]) 15:36, February 5, 2013 (UTC)

I see, I don't care about Wood Release that much, what bothers me more are the differences, as earlier, his snake body looked like many white snakes merged together with a head and he swallowed his victims, this time he looked more like Kabuto's snake form and entered his victim's mouth like a parasite or something 0_o creepy and cruel if you ask me--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 21:04, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
== reason for transfering ==
 
 
Okay, figured I should start a topic on this to prevent edit wars. X29 and Gojita disagree with me.
 
Sasuke said that Orochimaru is the only one who could manage this, that's because of his Living Corpse Reincarnation.
 
The stomach wound wasn't the reason, he is almost impossible to destroy by physical damage. LCR has 3 years cooldown, he wouldn't waste that for such thing as he naturally regenerates faster than normal humans, has Body Shedding that nullifies any damage as long as he can use it and 4 tailed Naruto sliced him in half to no avail, Itachi pierced him whole with Totsuka Sword and he even commented how that can't kill him.

:The problem appears to be that people have forgotten what the [[Dead Demon Consuming Seal]] does. When the Shinigami appears, the caster dies. Orochimaru's body was going to die, so he jumped ship.

This isn't quite the same topic, but would Orochimaru have gained any sort of Senju powers by jumping to the Zetsu body? That seems like it would be a good reason to jump, too. He probably jumped from his body to save his life like it was said above, but am I right to assume that he gained more from it?

With the recent chapter and Tobirama's words, it's looking likely Orochimaru possesses the Wood Release now that he has a Zetsu body which means Hashirama's DNA.

Not sure if we should be jumping the gun right away. We knew Obito had Hashirama's DNA at the first chapter of the flashback, but we didn't physically add Wood Release to his infobox until he used it.

: That isn't the point being made here. The point is, ''everyone'' we have seen thus far to obtain Hashirama's DNA, can use Wood Release. Danzō, Yamato, Madara, Zetsu, the whole shibang.

I'm not saying it isn't 99.9% likely that Orochimaru can use Wood Release, I'm saying that we shouldn't list it until he actually uses it. Using Obito as an example again, we knew he had Hashirama's DNA all the way back to when he fought Konan and used Izanagi, but did we put Wood Release in his infobox then? I understand where you're coming from but until he actually uses it, there's absolutely no reason to list it other than a reference to Hashirama's DNA in his abilities section. Saying Orochimaru can use Wood Release just because everyone else using his DNA can would be the same as saying Kakashi and Obito can use Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi just because it's a "standard that has been set" from all the other Mangekyo users who've used those techniques. Obviously Wood Release is a pretty straightforward thing unlike Mangekyo techniques, but the point is we shouldn't list someone as having a Kekkei Genkai or jutsu until they actually use it, because then it becomes speculation no matter how likely it is. --[[User:M4ND0N|M4ND0N]] ([[User talk:M4ND0N|talk]]) 23:00, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
: The [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] comparison is completely false. We've known since the start of Shippuden that each Mangekyo can have its own abilities. We saw Itachi's Tsukuyomi and Amaterasu, then turn around and Kakashi has Kamui, then Susanoo was introduced, then Sasuke comes up with Enton. No, that was not a canon precedent. This is, however. It has happened ''every single time'' since the concept was introduced.

The Sharingan thing was a bad point, I'll admit. I agree that Orochimaru most likely has access to Wood Release techniques, but I hate double standards. As soon as Orochimaru uses Wood Release, then we should list it.. until then it's just speculating what will most likely happen anyways, so why not be patient and wait before listing hypothetical abilities that he hasn't been shown using yet?

: That is not how facts work. We know Orochimaru's technique would've given him Sharingan, we have confirmation that his body is almost entirely Hashirama's cells, which has been confirmed to give the user Wood Release in ''every'' case we've seen, and from that, we can make a fair judgement that that is what happened. If Obito had such evidence stacked in his favor before he actually used it, it would've been added to him right then, but there wasn't. Since we are an encycolopedia that documents facts, we should, and the fact is this
 
:# Hashirama's cells have ALWAYS resulted in Wood Release in the receiver.
 
:# Orochimaru's [[Living Corpse Reincarnation]] gives use access to the kekkei genkai of the target.

::Tobi as a point is what sets the precedence here.

Exactly. Until he actually uses Wood Release it's speculation no matter what the precedence is. Is it likely that Orochimaru has access to it? Almost guaranteed, that's not the point though. If it's that likely that Orochimaru has access to Wood Release, why not wait until he uses it? It's not gonna kill anybody, and it's a more professional way of maintaining the article since [like Ultimate said] having access to it and using it are two totally different things, and until he uses it there's absolutely 0 confirmation from the manga that Orochimaru can use it, outside your very likely speculation. --[[User:M4ND0N|M4ND0N]] ([[User talk:M4ND0N|talk]]) 20:11, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
We know that people that have White Zetsu as apart of their body gain Wood Release. We know that Orochimaru's LCR gives him the kekkei genkai of the target. We know that ''every single case'' of Hashirama's cells being implanted into a user has resulted in Wood Release, so the arguments against it being added have no merit. It isn't picking and choosing. In both cases, we are making use of the information we have and adding the appropriate information to the article. Nothing we have put on the page has contradicted Kishi's manga. The fact is, like Danzō, Orochimaru may ''never'' use Wood Release techniques, but that doesn't mean he ''can't'' and it also doesn't mean he ''will''. But we know, beyond a shadow of the doubt, that he ''can''. That's all that matters, so it is added. So, Wood Release should stay. '''Edit''': Also, it should be noted that Orochimaru is ''already'' manipulating Hashirama's cells to strengthen Edo Tensei, so we know he can access ''and'' use the information in Hashirama's cells. ~ '''''[[User:Ten Tailed Fox|Ten Tailed Fox]]''''' [[File:Yamagakure Symbol.svg|14px|link=User talk:Ten Tailed Fox]] 23:08, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Since when do we list abilities that characters can use only "currently" ? Then we should remove all temporary/lost powers from Sasuke's infobox, period.
 
Also from where did you get that he can't use his own body? He emerged from Sasuke with his own body, same with Anko, his transformation into white snake isn't permanent, he can walk around "hostless" anytime just like before he took over Zetsu--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 12:54, February 15, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
On it's basis Sage Mode is when one produces senjutsu chakra, which produces a series of benfitial effects. Now even though he may not use it to it's full potential, Orochimaru could produce senjutsu chakra, as they serve as the basis for his cursed seal. If we'd followed the reasoing of the Ten Tailed Fox, guys like Tobirama, who never completed the Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation or Naruto with the Tailed Beast Rasengan shouldn't have those techniques matched to them. If Oro can produce senjutsu chakra, then he can use Sage Mode though his mastery over it appears to be very flawed, but just because of that, doesn't mean he can't use it.

Just like a senjutsu user has to be sage and dudes with Hashirama's cells/DNA are Wood Release users, the point being that if we don't list these instances, then we shouldn't also list Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi since he is yet to use them and pointing out he can in abilities section/ms article should be enough.

Orochimaru's curse mark uses senjustu chakra. It's derived from Jugo's ability to absorb natural energy, which is what senjutsu charka is made of. Jugo's transformation is even called Sage Transformation. The curse mark gives the user Orochimaru's senjustu chakra. So, I'd say Orochimaru can use senjutsu chakra without a Sage Mode.

sigh, senjutsu chakra is a synonym with sage chakra. Sage Mode is entered automatically once a ninja/animal or whoever mixes and balances their chakras with natural energy, about Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, it was, but now we are deciding if it should be listed since we removed Wood Release from Oro's infobox.
 
@Black, senjutsu chakra can't be used without sage mode, curse mark users are an exception but they aren't manipulating it themselves, it's being forced upon their bodies, I don't see a tattoo on his neck neither he possess Jugo's genes for what we know and the last time I checked, Oro was talking about his own chakra--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 17:03, February 16, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
==A Few Orochimaru Questions (in accordance in events)==
 
*I just need to know a few things:
 
**1. If Hiruzen sealed of Orochimaru's arms/jutsu-period, how was he able to do ''anything'' against Jiraiya and Tsunade?
 
**2. When Orochimaru switched over to [[Genyumaru]]'s body, how come he didn't try to destroy Konoha again.
 
**3. From what we saw, Orochimaru had a different appearance after he took over Genyumaru's body. How was he able to revert his body back to its original appearance by the next time we see him in Shippuden.
 
**4. Now that Sasuke brought Orochimaru back, how come he doesn't seem interested in any pertaining to killing Sasuke, destroying the village, or Kabuto (since he just left him). --[[User:Kid Sonic|Kid Sonic]] ([[User talk:Kid Sonic|talk]]) 20:37, February 23, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
* Bodily experiments/summoning tattoos
 
* Suna found out they were manipulated by him and allied with Konoha, also his strongest Edos (1st&2nd Hokage) got sealed
 
* Mask
 
* Sasuke is stronger and apparently Oro had an ACTUAL reason for wanting the village gone, yet to be revealed. Also if you follow the plot, Sasuke or better say his body is too precious to him, he doesn't want to kill him just take over to get his youth and powers.

New introductions Edit

I noticed that a large majority of character's intros have been changed completely on the wiki. Personally I feel that the previous introductions were much better compared to these new ones. They were more informative, more specific and more like a personal biography introduction. This new introductions are simply awful... And need to be carefully revised and re-written.

Pecnut (talk) 20:33, February 15, 2014 (UTC)

Noticed the same thing--Elveonora (talk) 14:44, February 16, 2014 (UTC)


Honestly, who on earth changed them? They're so terrible. Pecnut (talk) 15:38, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

Are you saying that Orochimaru's introduction is bad? If you are, then don't make generalisations about all of the intro's. The wikia is an on-going project, so that means of course we arent going to get everything perfect, and there will be some disagreements about the way we deal with certain aspects of it. Instead of complaining and calling ANY part of the wikia bad or "terrible" then actually do what you're supposed to do as an editor and edit it.--NaviiGator (A.K.A.KotoSenju)Talk Page-My Contributions 19:30, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

If this is not an issue with Orochimaru's specifically then you need to start a forum about it.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 19:37, February 16, 2014 (UTC)


I'm talking about all the introductions that have been changed. The previous ones were much better, I'm not saying everything has to be perfect but your aim is to make everything better and as informative as possible. I just feel (and I'm sure many others do too) that the previous introductions were much better. If you ask me, I think you should change them back. These new introductions are just plain bad. If it was down to me, I'd keep the old intros but of course I'd be penalised for doing so. Pecnut (talk) 20:33, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

The changes were pirmarily done by Snapper2, in an effort to make the introductions, well more like introductions and less like "TL;DR summaries of the entire article". I don't disagree that that to that end, the introductions need work, otherwise why not just actually have a "Summary" section at the top of the pages and leave the intros as "This is X".--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 20:41, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

I want to analyze the old intro:

served as the central antagonist for the majority of the series during Part I but later became a secondary antagonist during Part II
Out-of-universe, which the MOS and usual practice avoids. Also leads to meaningless discussions about who the "main" antagonist is.
Recognised as one of the most powerful ninja Konohagakure ever produced and one of the "Three Legendary Shinobi" (伝説の三忍, Densetsu no Sannin)
Kept in the new.
he operated as an ANBU shinobi within the Root faction
Relatively new information that has little application to his overall role in the series. Is also some desperate attempt to list his rank, which is more than accomplished by "Sannin".
prior to his defection from the village in pursuit of his own self-serving ambitions
Kept in the new.
Initially sealed away during the battle between Sasuke and Itachi Uchiha by the latter
This was added when it was thought he was dead...
he was later reconstituted by the former using his own genetic material that was within his successor Kabuto Yakushi and a copy of consciousness he stored within Anko Mitarashi's Cursed Seal of Heaven.
... and this was added when it was revealed it he wasn't dead. So you've got a whole sentence with about seven irrelevant links that take you in a nice circle of Orochimaru being dead but wait no he isn't. And what does this add?

Is the new intro great? I guess not. But it would be better to improve it rather than cling to the problems of the old one. ~SnapperTo 20:36, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Dual Weild Edit

I remember somewhere it showed a quick flashback pic of orochimaru with two swords strapped to his back in the manga, I don't remember when though. If someone remembers then could it be added to his abilities section? Munchvtec (talk) 16:48, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure if a silhouette from 600+ chapters back is any indication of dual-wielding. We are yet to see him use two blades at once--Elveonora (talk) 17:53, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

his "Sagehood" and related stuff Edit

Okay, I think it should be looked at again. Seelentau, can you please assist us with this, what exactly word by word did Kabuto say? And if Orochimaru isn't a Sage, how come does/did he have Senjutsu chakra and can absorb Senjutsu chakra without side effects? This is the only logical conclusion to me:

  • Orochimaru discovers the cave and trains there
  • He learns Senjutsu
  • Itachi cuts his arm off
  • Orochimaru uses Fushi Tensei for the first time
  • Is left unable to use Senjutsu properly as a consequence of that, with his host body not being strong enough to handle it properly--Elveonora (talk) 17:38, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
He said that Orochimaru found the Ryūchidō but couldn't gain Jūgo's ability due to the wrong body. I don't know where Orochimaru learned Senjutsu, though. Seelentau 愛 17:53, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
In the anime, when Orochimaru discovers the cave, he's suddenly in pain and about to barf or anything like that. Kabuto explained that Orochimaru's body was simply too weak or not suitable in general to learn sage-stuff, if I recall correctly. Noweeaboohoo (talk) 17:55, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
We should disregard anime in this case and others. @Seel, didn't Kabuto say something sorts of: "even he couldn't become a true sage in the end" ? If yes, couldn't that be interpreted as him having become... an "untrue" Sage? 0_o Imperfect I mean. What do you think about my scenario, is it plausible? The only other possibility I see is that he also has Jugo's cells, but that would be speculation--Elveonora (talk) 18:12, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

If Orochimaru had Jugo's cells in his own body, he would've the body needed to use Senninka and to enter Sage Mode after mastering that body. Everyone who uses Senchakra is an "untrue" sage, only those who can enter Sage Mode are real sages. Seelentau 愛 19:04, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

Well, I guess that if Orochimaru has Jugo's cells, he isn't a Sage but if he doesn't and can absorb natural energy, he is one, but we don't know, so yeah, we don't know.--Elveonora (talk) 19:34, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

I find it strange that you think someone can "un-become a Sage", because that is exactly what your argument is sounding like. I will agree that Orochimaru's situation is strange, but make to mistake, he's a Sage. Whether he can do it now or not, at one point, Orochimaru mastered senjutsu and became a Sage. That means, regardless of his current body, he still retains that ability. Given Orochimaru current host bodies are too weak to enter Sage Mode, but that doesn't mean Orochimaru is not a Sage. The ability also isn't completely lost to Orochimaru either, because Kabuto even said if Orochimaru found a strong enough host body, he could use his Sage Mode. This means, in a situation where you remove his Sage title, and Orochimaru got a stronger body, you would need to "reward" him back with his title. That sounds pointless. Just mark Orochimaru as a Sage, and then mention his current limitations under his abilities, it's that simple. There is no point making this more complicated that it already is. Omega64 (talk) 16:34, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

That sounds valid. What do others think? I guess we would need best to know again exactly what Kabuto says word by word, because the meaning and said interpretations vary from translation to translation I see it.

Well, Orochimaru wouldn't be a Sage had he never managed to learn how to absorb natural energy and mold it into senjutsu chakra, which we don't know he did is the point, but as I said, I recall Kabuto's dialogue suggesting he did... and if that's true and his inability to use Sage Mode is just temporary, one simply can't "unbecome" something.--Elveonora (talk) 21:35, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

I'm on the fence with this one. No one denies that Orochimaru can use Senjutsu. But he's been deliberately stated to not have a body capable of Sage Mode. Its not a temporary thing like you suggest, Elve. You either have a body that can do it, or you don't. He doesn't. That's just a fact. Kabuto's dialogue only insinuates that he tried to use it and failed. Where you're getting that he was successful is over my head. Could he potentially steal a body that has such a capability? Sure. That's why he was grooming Sasuke, Kimimaru, and others capable of using the curse mark, to be his new host, but until he takes one of them, he is still unable to use Sage Mode. This is (along with other reasoning, which I am not willing to debate here) why Senjutsu cannot equate to being in the use of Sage Mode. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 05:58, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

I think it has to do with the fact only people with "extremely large reserves of chakra" can use sage mode such as Jiraiya and Naruto, who both are 5th tier in stamina/chakra reserves. Orochimaru is only 3.5th tier himself, I think by body they mean the fact he just simply doesn't have enough chakra/stamina to even enter Sage Mode himself. He needs a body that has massive stamina/chakra. ItachiWasAHero (talk) 09:29, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Guys, you misunderstand the manga. Kabutos words about Orochimaru's wrong body refer to Jugo's body, not to some Fushi Tensei related stuff. You need that special body to master Senninka and enter Sage Mode at the Ryuchido, but Orochimaru didn't have that body. Seelentau 愛 09:46, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Can you word by word post the whole dialogue past the part of Kabuto stating nature to be his friend with an arm sticking outta a snake's mouth? And I don't think it's relevant what kind of body we are talking about, the topic isn't about Sage Mode, but Sage status. What defines a Sage? You say Sage Mode, but then say Pa a Ma can't use Sage Mode, yet they are Sages, therefore knowing how to absorb natural energy without cheating = Sagehood in my opinion.--Elveonora (talk) 11:18, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
Isn't the "Sage" status something this Wiki invented? Seelentau 愛 11:23, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
Wasn't the title of "Sage" ever accredited to Senjutsu? What you suggest is that Shima and Fukasaku are "Sages" not unlike Sage of Six Paths I get it--Elveonora (talk) 11:28, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
Huh? No, not at all. It's just that I never knew "sage" was a title officially taken from the manga. I always thought you guys made it up long ago. Seelentau 愛 11:32, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

And that's why we seriously need to use references... indeed, there are none for "Sage" explaining what it is and so on--Elveonora (talk) 11:49, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Clarification: Sage was made a "Classification" I believe after Pa said something along the lines that "Naruto was a sage" after he had mastered Sage Mode. Who exactly made the classification, we'll probably never know, but it technically is not real and I think only really used as a way to quickly point out the people that this character can use Sage Mode.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 11:59, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
If he said that, that means it's a real classification and not made up. Naruto being a Sage could refer to wisdom or something of course (which he doesn't even have), but how likely it is to refer to that rather than Senjutsu mastery anyway? If anyone manages to find the chapter/episode where Pas says this, please reference it.--Elveonora (talk) 12:15, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Personally, I don't think anyone can give Orochimaru the status of "Sage". Sure he has Sage abilities but he can't enter Sage mode which is basically the cream of the crop of being a sage. For example you can't call someone who is studying for a PhD "Doctor..." Can you? Only until they have achieved that status fully by meeting all the requirements can they be called doctor, regardless of how much knowledge they have. Just because you know some Senjutsu (One technique, two techniques etc.) doesn't automatically mean that you're a sage. Only until you have achieved Sage mode, shows mastering of that area of Senjutsu and the techniques surrounding it.

Another vital point that everyone else is missing is the fact that NEVER ONCE has Orochimaru been referred to as a Sage. We've seen people call Naruto a sage, Jiraiya, Kabuto etc but when has Orochimaru ever been called "Sage" or ever referred to himself as that? So I don't think anyone has the right to call Orochimaru a Sage. Show me where Orochimaru get's called a Sage. Pecnut (talk) 15:46, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

Using Senjutsu chakra means being in Sage Mode by extension, doesn't it?--Elveonora (talk) 16:08, May 27, 2014 (UTC)
Also, it's stated in the article that those that can absorb or manipulate senjutsu chakra are known as sages (仙人, sennin). It means that Orochimaru can be considered a sage right? Also, @Pecnut, not only that he's knowledgeable of senjutsu, but he's also able to absorb it. ~IndxcvNovelist (talk | contribs | PR | RLS) 16:28, May 27, 2014 (UTC)
Orochimaru doesn't have Sage Mode. So lets drop that little crackpot theory right now. Senjutsu, yes, but can we please, for the love of all that is good and holy not start this argument again? Its been argued to the death, using the same evidence and twisting of translations, extensively, four or five times now, and it always ends the same; the camp that believes Orochimaru is a Sage still believes it, and the camp that doesn't also remains unchanged. No new information has come to light, so it'd be a rehash of the same arguments used before, and I, for one, am I in no mood to see them again. Just agree to disagree and be done with it. We've still got another databook coming out (hopefully) once the series wraps up and Orochimaru isn't completely out of the picture yet, so just be patient. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 20:42, May 27, 2014 (UTC)

Different Bodies Edit

I know I'm new to this kind of thing, but don't you guys think that Orochimaru should have a list of the Bodies He's Stolen? It would make a bit more sense than if you just say that he stole a lot of bodies.

Mugen Tsukuyomi contradiction Edit

Since Orochimaru is currently in a Zetsu body, why was he affected by it? KILLERBEE479 (talk) 13:53, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

Because even if he is in another body, he still has a mind that can be captured by the genjutsu. • Seelentau 愛 13:54, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
No one said White Zetsu are immune. Guruguru doesn't seem to have any brain or sensory organs and neither does Black Zetsu--Elveonora (talk) 14:56, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
Don't White Zetsu basically need to be immune? They'll be a pretty crappy army if they get caught by the Infinite Tsukuyomi as soon as they get released from the branches. --Atrix471 (talk) 15:01, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
The Infinite Tsukuyomi is no longer active--Elveonora (talk) 15:03, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
Oh yeah... whoops. Ignore that statement. Atrix471 (talk) 15:04, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
