  • So I was thinking, all the Kekkei Genkai are non-living elements, except for Wood Release. Plus, only 1 person in the world obtained this Kekkei Genkai naturally (Hashirama). So I have this theory where Wood Release is actually not a Kekkei Genkai. My theory is that Hashirama found something that relates to the Shinju, he then sealed it in himself so that he gets chakra or something. Then he found out that he could create and control wood. That's why he's the only one that can do Wood Release in Senju.

    Wood created from Wood Release can absorb chakra, like the Shinju and the Ten-Tails. These wood can also bind Tailed Beasts and deflect their attacks (Tailed Beast Bomb), similar to how the Shinju and the Ten-Tails survived his own Tailed Beast Bomb, plus this is something normal wood couldn't do.

    The dragons and statues Hashirama summoned, could be the plant equivalent of a Tailed Beast (animal). Like how the Shinju is the plant equivalent of Kaguya (animal/humanoid) in terms of the structure of the Ten-Tails.

      I think it is, it's just very rare. I do believe that it originates from the Shinju though, and that Hashirama just was an extremely powerful incarnation of a Sage's body, one that was pretty close to the original.

      This is false. Wood Release is a combined nature transformation kekkei genkai originated from the Senju clan. This is a rare skill. Hashirama was the last user, but some of his ancestors possessed WR.

      there is no proof that anyone other than hashirama had ever had wood release. sure its called a kekkei genkai of the senju clan but any normal senju would never be able to even attempt wood release as it would instantly over power and kill them only asura's transmigrants have the required life force to use wood release so if anyone else had wood release than they were transmigrants

      True, but it is kinda hard to believe that something classified as a Kekkei genkai(Bloodline limit) is only available to one person in the history of the world naturally. Though it is just a theory, it does make a lot of sense as Kurama even stated that the ten-tails husk contains a lot of life force, enough to keep the former ten-tails jinchuriki from dying after the tailed beasts were extracted, so it's not too far-fetched to think that something like this is possible.

      This might be just nothing but during the ten tails revival, Hashirama noticed that Madara was trying to force Obito to bring him back to life with the Outer Path — Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique, how did Hashirama have any knowledge of this technique and the rinnegan's abilities in the first place?

      Absence of proof is not proof of absense. Literally nothing is known for 90% of all of shinobi history (Konoha was founded some 100 years ago, give or take a decade), no names no special shinobi no kekkei genkai.

    • Asura probably had Wood Release as well as the Yang chakra that the SPSM/KCM is composed of. It's possible that pre-Hashirama reincarnations had some degree of either or (or even both), but it's likely that Hashirama and Naruto are the strongest reincarnations, with previous ones showing power that is not particularly godlike or having died before they could use their power to its fullest extent.

      Hashirama use Wood Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees, this jutsu is "Hiden". Hiden or simply "secret" techniques are passed down orally from generation to generation in certain regions or clans. Then this technique has been passed down to Hashirama by a member of his clan who owned WR.

      That does not confirm or deny the possibility that it's origins are different. Mangekyou is just genjutsu yet it's origins are different. Amaterasu is Ninjutsu but it's origins are different.

      Wood Release seems to work different from any other release, including it's natural affinity for Tailed Beasts. So it's not weird that it's origins may be different too.

    • i also think the wood release might be a recessive trait that could be traced back to the shinju.i cant say whether or not it originated in hashirama and was not possessed by any other senju.but i agree with bob1200 that its a (albeit recessive) gene passed down via hagoromo or kaguya from the shinju itself.even though it might not be identical to 'shinju wood' it shares some characteristics as previously mentioned.one being absorbing chakra and subjugating bijuu,which is completely unrelated to regular wood and trees.i therefore believe mokuton is the manifestation of an ancestral trait dating back to the shinju,hagoromo or kaguya that has mutated over time into a watered-down state ,much like the sharingans descent from the rinnegan/juubi eye.thats just what i think.

      and ithink fact that its made up of basic elements doesnt disprove its possible relation to the shinju.even trut-seeking balls are partially made of the basic natures

      its might also be possible that mokuton itself is an ordinary kekkei genkai ,that although rare ,has manifested in the senju clan before hashirama,and maybe its hashiramas godly life-force and ashura yang chakra that gives his mokuton its unusual properties.an obvious one being subjugating bijuu.and perhaps their powerful lifeforce and the fact they were grown from chakra makes them naturally absorb chakra to grow.perhaps for these reasons hashiramas version of mokuton was the most memorable ,and the memory of the original,much weaker technique faded into obscurity.just another theory though.i still think mokuton has originated from some ancestral influence.i mean its basically creating a living organism out of the basic elements.thats a bit hax for a KG made of just two elements.while its more believable if it were inherited from shinju ,kaguya hagoromo or ashura.or if the ashura yang chakra in hashirama and his cells provides the lifeforce for a basic living organism to be created

      it was made OP since it had been the power of the first, imagine hashi with magnet release, we would argue about it too since hashi would have shown gigantic rock titans and the power to tear people into pieces by controlling the iron in their body (or the magnetic field around them), it would be different than any other release we have seen so far, it doesnt mean it cant be a KKG :)

    • Nativity of a World of Trees being Hiden makes more sense if you look back at where the series was at that point. When he was originally introduced, Hashirama wasn't said to be anything special Hokage-wise (Hiruzen was called the strongest) so his Wood Release wasn't nearly as special it was depicted as in Part 2. Hashirama was originally given Wood Release to complete the representation of the five Chinese elements in the Hokage battle:

      Fire --> Water --> Earth --> Wood --> Metal

      The whole concept of nature transformation wasn't introduced in Part 1 so it's probable that Kishimoto hadn't yet decided that "natures" could be combined by having certain kekkei genkai, just like he hadn't yet decided that Shukaku and the Nine-Tails were related as tailed beasts. Thus the second databook classified Hashirama's Wood Release technique as only Hiden and Ninjutsu, not Kekkei Genkai. The first two databooks didn't make any other mistakes when it comes to technique classification — unlike the third which made a few and the fourth which made countless errors — so there's no reason to assume that was a mistake.

      All things considered, it is almost certain that Wood Release being a kekkei genkai was a retcon introduced in Part 2 in order to make Hashirama more special. For the record, Haku's mirror technique being "Ice Release" was also a retcon; according to the first databook, the mirrors themselves are the kekkei genkai, not just a technique that uses a kekkei genkai.

      That was a translation error. Black Zetsu was actually saying she had kekkei mōra, not all kekkei genkai in existence.

      Too bad the animators and novel writers like to blur the lines between Water and Ice release though. Oh well.

      It was only called Earth Style in the English dub, so that's basically a mistake on top of a retcon. How do the novel writers blur the lines between water and ice? Don't know much about the novels, so just curious.

    • Hashirama seems to be really unique. I mean, Hashi cells are one of the most OP accessories in the series. His Wood Release is also OP as hell, and is almost certainly a watered-down version of the Shinju Wood, given their similarities. Now what I want to know is WHY Hashi was so special, and not Naruto. They're both Ashura transmigrants, yet Hashi cells on their own are OP as fuck, while Naruto's cells don't mean squat in the shinobi world. Also, Hashi never had to rely on an external power, while Naruto's entire moveset which actually boils down to just two jutsus and their variants, are entirely reliant on Kyuubi's immense chakra. Heck, Hashi beat EMS Madara+Kyuubi COMBINED. I doubt Naruto would be capable of such a feat without the Kyuubi and Hagoromo cheats.

      So obviously, among Naruto and Hashi, it's Hashi who's stronger in their natural states. I wish Kishi explained why Hashi was so OP and unique.

    • BakumatsuWarrior wrote: So obviously, among Naruto and Hashi, it's Hashi who's stronger in their natural states. I wish Kishi explained why Hashi was so OP and unique.

      Naruto's healing with Kurama was easily on par with hashirama's healing. A wound to his hand healed in seconds.

      hashirama's strength is Wood Release, and only Wood Release. Wood Release is unique because it's naturally strong against Biju, as it drains away their chakra. It's why Hashirama could defeat Madara AND Kurama. Hashirama doesn't have to brute-strength defeat the biju, he just binds them with Wood Release and it's pretty much an automatic victory.

      Secondly, his healing is so immensely strong because he's also a Senju, of which the Uzumaki are essentially a watered down version. That and his Transmigrancy (body of a sage) makes him essentially immortal to physical attacks.

      Naruto in Gaiden easily matched that healing. However, Hashirama was so desired because of Wood Release, not healing. Healing was only a boon.

    • i believe he did say WITHOUT KURAMA. lets not overestimate naruto.while it is true that naruto has awesome healing powers,without kurama in his base form he has a healing ability about equal to karin more or less.though as a realised ashura transmigrant this is substantially greater.but when we look at hashirama,on paper he has superior healing abilities since not only is an ashura transmigrant,hes also a senju,meaning greater stamina ,durability and chakra. and i think i recall madara himself comparing tsunades hundred healings to hashiramas healing factor,and tsunade survived being cut in half,that kinda puts things in perspective.as OP as naruto is,i cant say im sure he would survive being cut in half.maybe he could,though personally i doubt it.

      also ,i said this somewhere before ,but i think under the best possible conditions,theoretically naruto and a few others might survive having their heads cut off,as crazy as that sounds.

      However, Naruto has been jinchuriki since birth, and Hashirama never was one. it's fairly difficult to tell just how strong Kurama's healing was.

      No it wasn't "on par" with Hashirama's healing. A small wound on his hand still took some time to heal. Hashi on the other hand can heal from life-threatening injuries in seconds. Narutard could do that only with help from the Kyuubi. Hashirama could do much better on his own.

      Thekillman wrote: hashirama's strength is Wood Release, and only Wood Release.

      Well you just forgot about the immense healing power of Hashirama that you were discussing only a few lines above, not to forget chakra levels higher than full Kurama. Also, Hashi has easy access to Sage Mode, while Naruto pre-Kurama Mode and Hagoromo Upgrades needed shadow clones to maintain Sage mode, that too for only 5 minutes. And we know what difference such a limited Sage Mode made in his battle against Pain. Also, Kabuto's SM made him OP as fuck. Hashi effortlessly using SM is one of the reasons why he was OP. So no, he had many other strengths apart from Wood Release.

      Thekillman wrote: Secondly, his healing is so immensely strong because he's also a Senju, of which the Uzumaki are essentially a watered down version. That and his Transmigrancy (body of a sage) makes him essentially immortal to physical attacks.

      Yeah, the Uzumaki were so watered down that one of them could use Madara's Rinnegan right from childhood, and later on went on to possess godlike strength from those borrowed eyes, in sharp contrast to

      1) Kakashi whose body suffered enormous strain from ONE ordinary sharingan

      2) Obito who couldn't handle both the Rinnegans, despite being an Uchiha with more than half of his body consisting of Hashi cells.

      Also, another Uzumaki could fully subdue full, undivided Kurama with her chakra chains, in spite of her being extremely exhausted and on her death throes. Meanwhile her son (also an Uzumaki) can't do jack shit without Kurama.

      So it's quite clear that the Uzumaki aren't all that watered-down. Only two of them are watered down. One is an annoying brat who can't do anything significant without the help of a demon fox. The other is a dumbass bitch who swoons over a coldblooded douchebag who tried to kill her.

      And so, it's clear that Hashirama>>>>>Naruto without Hagoromo/Kurama

      Well the other 50% of his heritage comes from Minato, who had such enormous chakra levels that he eventually became a Perfect Sage (his skills with Sage Mode are a different matter, though). And still Naruto couldn't do jack shit without Kurama right until the end of the series.

      UltimaDude wrote: @BakumatsuWarrior They are still the water-downed version of the Senjus, since they are indeed weaker than them. But that by no means, means that they are weak

      They are only slightly weaker. "Watered-down" implies that their comparative weakness is significant, which was actually not the case (Nagato and Kushina). So that doesn't really justify Naruto's weakness compared to Hashirama. Lest we forget, Hashi and Madara were killing adult Uchihas and Senjus respectively when they were kids. And that was before Hashi was shown to use Wood Release. Naruto at that age had to fart aloud just to beat someone like Kiba. Even in adulthood, Hashi was at a totally different level. Kishi's greatest flaw with the manga was that he never gave enough room for Naruto to develop. It's sad really. Uzumaki Naruto's story is actually quite touching and had so much potential. Instead, Kishi decided to expand Sasgay's moveset during the beginning of Shippuden, and then at the end introduced monsters like Hashirama and Madara. Naruto, on the other hand, remained a one-trick-pony from beginning to end, relying only on rasengan and kage bunshin.

      Dude, when Hashi was Part 1 Naruto's age, he was killing ADULT Uchihas. Naruto, on the other hand, couldn't beat someone like Kiba without farting at Kiba's nose. Sure, Naruto eventually beat Shukaku/Gaara, but that was with the help of Kurama. Without Kurama, Naruto is nothing. Hashi on the other hand is the real OG.

      I can't help but feel that Kishi hates Naruto as a character for some reason. We know both from the story and from some interviews that Kishi has a huge boner for the Uchiha, especially Sasgay. I wouldn't be surprised if Kishi forces his wife to dress as Sasuke or Itachi during sex. Must be a great turn-on for him. And so he must hate Naruto, because deep down he knows that he made a mistake by not making the protagonist an Uchiha.

      i wouldnt go that far, yeah, he heavily centered his story at the uchihas because he made them the primery antagonists for almost the entire story, in part 1 was oro shown, at that time OP-itachi shows up, at part 2 sasuke is a villian therefore he needs to be stronger as the heroes in oder to make the story interesting, than we still hae akatsuki, first we think nagato is the leader, and sasukes part (since he is deutergonist)still centers at itachi, than it is tied with the true leader -obito-, than the M-group also gets to that point, sasuke is still villian therefore he is stronger than the heroes for tension, obito is also OP since he is the vilian, than it is revealed that madara is the real leader and controlled everything and sasuke stops being the villian and conviently is now equal with the MC, than the fight blabla happens, madara -who is the vilian- is super-OP therefore kaguya shows up, blabla-fight, than sasuke becomes villian again and suddenly is giving our MC a hard time for most of the fight, than they are equal at the end and blabla happy BS...

      in short: i dont think that kishi is fixated on the uchihas but on the villians, and since the uchihas are the villians for most of the time they are getting BS-powerups, and later the MC gets some too and more BS happens with so6p etc etc ^_^

      I was going to say the same. Also, hashirama was a prodigy whereas Naruto had trouble understanding even basic stuff. I mean, Naruto had pretty good intuition with jutsu but it required so much effort to learn more complex things. Hashirama, as said above, was killing adult Uchiha a kid.

      So why is Hashirama that much stronger? because Hashirama was actually a capable ninja from the start. Naruto's capabilities as a Transmigrant lag years if not decades behind Hashirama, but the Boruto movie basically confirms that Naruto and Sasuke's powers are equivalent if not beyond Kaguya's, so he's definitely surpassed Hashirama

      Oh that i agree with. I was heavily disappointed that in stead of trying to fill the gaps in his jutsu arsenal and strategies, we in stead saw him walk down this one-dimensional path of just throwing more power at things. I still remember the revelation i had when i saw Minato's jutsu, as Hiraishin and Rasengan made so much sense as a combo, but naruto just lacked powerful gap-closers. Well naruto lacked a lot of jutsu types actually.

      I'm just starting to believe that Kishimoto was running out of ideas at the end. Part I is just so full of different and creative characters with different and creative jutsu. Part II starts off fine (Akatsuki is one of the best bad guy groups i've seen) but then just seems to hit a brick wall.

      well when a person is decapitated they die because the brain is no longer supplied with nutrients and oxygen.however its been found that the brain doesnt die immediately after the head is severed.and can live for a really short period (usually a few minutes)before damage.the exact period varies by person.after which tissue starts dying eventually leading to brain death.however as shown in the treatment of stroke,if blood supply is regained quickly enough,damage can be minimised. in the case of a severed head,while its impossible to heal nerves veins and arteries fast enough to save the brain via any kind of surgery.but if we consider people like naruto or tsunade with hundred healings ,their bodies are able to heal themselves at a remarkable rate without conscious effort.in theory if their heads were cut off but still in contact with the body,within minutes their bodies would begin to regenerate tissue and completely rejoin the head to the body with minimum brain damage if done fast enough,thereby surviving decapitation. kinda crazy but possible in a best case scenario.the head would have to be cut off cleanly with surgical precision and kept in contact with the body.
