The Sarutobi clan was one of the first clans to settle in the newly created Konohagakure, where Hiruzen had struck up a friendship with the Shimura clan's Shimura Danzo. His sadistic attitude was presumably due to the death of his parents. After being resurrected by Orochimaru, Hiruzen was saddened to learn that Itachi had been killed by Sasuke to avenge the Uchiha Clan and had nothing but good things to say about Itachi to Sasuke and credits Itachi for preventing another war from breaking out by killing his clan. Although he loved all of Konoha, Hiruzen held his students especially dear, believing they were the village's future and, as such, must be cultivated and protected. Tobi withdraws once the Infinite Tsukuyomi is about to best cast, having completed its job of distracting the Allies. Hiruzen agreed. Hiruzen finds out from Iruka that he will pass down the will of Fire to Naruto, and his classmates.  He was also one of few people who could remove seals as powerful as the Five Elements Seal..

Because of what happened to itachi, Hiruzen decided that children no longer belonged into the ANBU and, up until his death, he stayed true to his promise to Itachi that he would look after Sasuke. Hiruzen makes Kakashi leave the ANBU after the latter has served in it for 10 years. He welcomed Rasa who really was impersonated by Orochimaru. He first appeared in this arc consulting the jōnin about their decision to register their genin into the upcoming Chunin Exams. Biwako and her husband Hiruzen Sarutobi met with Kushina Uzumaki and Minato Namikaze shortly before Kushina was to give birth. Hiruzen attempted to peacefully resolve the conflict but negotiations consistently stalled. Hiruzen spying on Naruto to see his process as a Ninja Academy Student. He was further inhibited by his desire to not hurt either. He is the creator of Matter Release and is also known as the Monkey Sage. What's more, Hiruzen does not believe that he, nor anyone else in Konoha for that matter, has the skills necessary to meet Orochimaru in battle. However, Hiruzen was not entirely for his softness as he allowed Danzō to form an Anbu faction of his own, to handle the dark side of Konoha's actions. While being raised by his Anbu parents, Konohamaru was never referred to by his name by the villagers, only ever called \"Honourable Grandson\" (お孫様, Omago-sama) because of his relationship to the Hokage. 1 Background 1.1 Early Life 1.2 Chunin Exams 2 Personality 3 Appearance 4 Abilities Reiken was born 6 years after Boruto and his generation. He is also the son of Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage. Nevertheless, Hiruzen's kind and pacifist ways are widely valued by Konoha's residents and even his rival Kage, and for those reasons his eventual death is regretted by many. Therefore he got to live all the way up to the start of Part II. Tobirama volunteered himself instead, and before going to his death he appointed Hiruzen as Third Hokage. Hiruzen tries to explain how missions are assigned by skill level, and that as genin they cannot be expected to accomplish more difficult missions yet. Hiruzen's clones using all five elements simultaneously. He is known as Hiruzen of the Sarutobi Clan, son of Sasuke Sarutobi the Monkey but this is the legend of his son who was not born of his blood but respected and loved just the same. Hearing from the Hokage and reflecting on his own experiences, Sasuke decides he doesn't want Konoha to be destroyed, as is Madara's current intention. Hiruzen Sarutobi is a firm believer in the Will of Fire, which holds that all the peoples of Konoha are like a family, and that the Hokage is chiefly responsible for that family's well being. Hiruzen is taken hostage and separated from his bodyguards by the Kazekage. Hiruzen tells Danzo not to speak rudely in front of Itachi. His reduced chakra levels were offset with precise chakra control, needing only the minimum amount of chakra to use techniques to their full potency. He was the third man to hold the title of the God of Shinobi (忍の神). As his soul ascends, Hiruzen entrusts the future to Team 7. In order to rectify the mistakes he's made at long last, Hiruzen makes two shadow clones that first catch the two Hokage and then use the Dead Demon Consuming Seal to remove their souls. Even after summoning Enma to free himself from Hashirama's Wood Release, Hiruzen in his old age was unable to defeat the two Hokage, as any damage that was done was simply regenerated. Sarutobi Hiruzen (猿飛ヒルゼン) was the Third Hokage (三代目火影) of Konohagakure. Even as he was about to die at Pain's hands, Jiraiya lamented being unable to save his mentor. 1 Background 2 Personnality 3 Appearance 4 Abilities 4.1 Ninjutsu 4.2 Taijutsu 5 Part II Gunshin was born to Hiruzen and Biwako Sarutobi. Sasuke mistakenly assumed Hiruzen was involved and agreed to it, not knowing he was the only elder who opposed it and tried to make peaceful resolutions with the clan. As Jiraiya was nearing his end at the hands of Pain, one of his regrets was his failure to save his teacher. When Hiruzen was alive, his surrogate grandson. Despite all this, however, Hiruzen still considered Danzo a friend and regretted his inability to be a better friend to Danzo, believing that had he been able to rule Konoha with the willingness to commit difficult decisions, Danzo wouldn't have turned out so badly. Hiruzen attempted to peacefully resolve the conflict but negotiations consistently stalled. Orochimaru encourages him to die, but Hiruzen, doomed to die anyway for invoking the Shinigami, ignores him, instead trying to muster up the strength to finish sealing Orochimaru. , Hiruzen eventually started investigating a number of disappearances throughout Konoha. He calls off the search party when it becomes clear Naruto will return, but Hiruzen worries that Naruto's learning of the Multiple Shadow Clone Technique from the Scroll will risk the Nine-Tails' escape from his body. He also wore an armored hood with a bandanna-like forehead protector over this, tied with two long straps. Despite this he had hoped that there was a better option to make sure that Naruto didn't have a lonely childhood as he saw how the villagers were treating him.  Unable to choose Orochimaru, Hiruzen considered Jiraiya as his successor, but Jiraiya did not believe he was responsible enough. Hiruzen is one of only three known Kage to predominantly wear the position's official uniform — the others being the Fifth Kazekage, and the Fourth Raikage.  Hiruzen could even lay explosive tags on high-level opponents without them noticing.. The Sarutobi Clan (猿飛一族, Sarutobi Ichizoku) is an influential clan from Konohagakure.It has produced several renowned members who have held positions of high authority, including the Third Hokage; whose son, Asuma, held membership in the Twelve Guardian Ninja, while his other child served directly under the Hokage along with their spouse as Anbu. Only when Danzo ordered the destruction of the Uchiha Clan at Itachi's hands did Hiruzen finally lose his tolerance and respect for Danzo. He initially had a single line running vertically under the outer corners of each eye, in which stretched down into his face as he aged until they reached his cheeks. Hiruzen confirms the truth of what Itachi Uchiha did and explains that he only did so on the condition that Hiruzen would keep Sasuke safe in the aftermath. Their combined efforts succeed and Obito is defeated. (In the anime, the boy was previously discovered by Danzō, and Hiruzen negotiated the boy's release into Hiruzen's care. A young adult Hiruzen (right) with Danzo (left). Hiruzen's grandson Konohamaru(which he named after his village) looks up to his grandfather and is proud to be from the Sarutobi clan. They were each known as the "God of Shinobi" (忍の神, Shinobi no Kami). Hiruzen early on displayed prodigious talent in the ninja arts, earning him additional training from Hashirama Senju, the First Hokage; at the same time, Danzō became jealous of Hiruzen's skills and started a one-sided rivalry in an effort to surpass him. Hiruzen never died during Part I at all. His talents earned him the position of Hokage at a young age, directly selected by the Second Hokage, having surpassed his teacher in childhood.  When not in combat, he usually wears the official uniform — the customary hat and haori with a red, full-length kimono that is tied using a white sash. During his Academy entrance ceremony, Asuma became friends with Kurenai Yūhi. During the First Shinobi War, he wore grey shinobi battle armour common to the time period, with heavy protection all over his body. However, when he decided to go with Orochimaru to gain the power needed to defeat Itachi, Naruto reminded Sasuke about the Third dying at Orochimaru's hands and Sasuke responded with shocking indifference due to him falling deeper into darkness. Asuma Sarutobi (猿飛 アスマ, Sarutobi Asuma) is the leader of Team 10 and son of the Third Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi and uncle of Konohamaru Sarutobi. With everyone too tired from the prolonged fighting to defend themselves, Hiruzen and four of his shadow clones arrive to help, counterbalancing Tobi's elemental attacks with their own. The Allied Shinobi Forces are shortly afterwards attacked by Tobi. He would always visit Naruto whenever he could to give him money but would never tell him about his heritage or his parents. Reiken Sarutobi (雷電猿飛, Sarutobi Reiken) is the son of Hanabi and Konohamaru. When he is reincarnated, he reflects on his life and finds it similarly flawed: he feels responsible for Danzō's taking on of the village's darkness, believing Danzō would not have turned out so badly had he been more willing to make the difficult decisions; he believes that some of the village's - and even the world's - problems could have been avoided had he led with a firmer hand. Hiruzen and Enma disarm him of his Kusanagi and Hiuruzen starts performing the seal on him. By the time he had become the Seventh Hokage, Naruto had adopted Hiruzen's philosophy that all the people of Konoha were like a family, and as Hokage it was his duty to look after all of them, even if it meant not always being around for his own family. Hiruzen did so, but the villagers proved unable to follow Minato's wishes, prompting Hiruzen, now the village's Hokage once more, to outlaw any mention of the Nine-Tails, an effort to protect Naruto from their misguided hate. One day, she fell down in front of it and was comforted by Madara Uchiha, whose look frightened her deeply. Hiruzen ultimately settled on Jiraiya's former student, Namikaze Minato, who had proven himself time and again during the Third Shinobi War. He then departed for some air some seconds later to head to the Hokage Monument, where he gave a speech to the Ninja Academy students about what it really means to be a shinobi. His delicate, thoughtful approach to not only issues … Hiruzen trusts Shisui to deal with the Uchiha clan. When Orochimaru later arrives on the battlefield, they join together to help the Allies in the counter-offensive against Obito, first by blocking and cutting back more and more of the tree's roots and branches, then by assisting in pulling the tailed beasts from Obito's body. Hiruzen and Kakashi being invited to have tea by Sakura's parents. Hiruzen was renowned as The Professor (プロフェッサー, Purofessā). Hiruzen quickly resolved to kill his masters and used a very powerful fire technique that was easily countered by one of Tobirama's walls of water that was then turned into an attack that was stopped by Hiruzen's own earth wall. Hiruzen worries that Orochimaru now plans to use him to destroy Konoha, but is instead questioned by Sasuke about the Uchiha Clan Downfall. This is why he decided for Iruka to become Naruto's parental figure and teacher when the boy had enrolled into the Ninja Academy. Hiruzen by this time had became aware of the darkness in Danzo's heart and could act firm when reinforcing his decisions against Danzo's approval but despite this, however, he still considered Danzo a friend and allowed him to start Root and tolerated Danzo's dark actions. He then watched the skirmish between Naruto and Ebisu, thinking that he would be heavily affected by the Harem Technique, blushing at the mere thought of it. Hiruzen reveals to Kakashi all about the First Hokage's wood style techniques. When Naruto shortly afterwards breaks into the Hokage Residence and steals the Scroll of Seals (and also defeats Hiruzen with the Sexy Technique), Hiruzen has no choice but to mobilise a search party to apprehend Naruto. As the world is wrapped up by God: Nativity of a World of Trees, Hiruzen being unaffected because he is dead, tries to fight off the bindings and release its captives, but can do nothing for them. , His noteworthy skillset included viewing things from afar, create a barrier powerful enough contain the Ten-Tails alongside other Kage-level shinobi, and sense the presence of individuals by their chakra.. During his life, he was regarded as the strongest Hokage in Konoha's history, and the most powerful of the Five Kage. Hiruzen frequently used shuriken in combat, both the standard size and the larger fūma shuriken. Although Hiruzen's ideals differed from Sasuke's, they had a close relationship as Sasuke greatly respected him and appreciated his care, with Hiruzen being shown at one point to gently pat Sasuke in the head in the past which Sasuke allowed despite his reluctance.  Across the back is written "Third Hokage" which is replaced with the kanji for "fire" (火, hi) during his brief retirement. Before needing to publicly leave the village as a criminal in order to hide Konoha's involvement in the Uchiha's destruction, Itachi asked Hiruzen to look after his younger brother, Uchiha Sasuke, the only Uchiha he could not bring himself to kill. Orochimaru openly believed that had Hiruzen been ten years younger, he would've killed his former student. Indeed, Hiruzen was directly responsible for training the Sannin, three of the most legendary ninja of all time, while the legacy of his tutelage resulted in other prominent ninja like Namikaze Minato (the late Fourth Hokage), Hatake Kakashi (the Sixth Hokage) and Team Kakashi. He grew up with Asuma, his younger brother, very closely and he always looked out for him. Accepting Itachi's choice to also leave the village and join the Akatsuki to make sure it doesn't come after the village. ), Because Minato never had the opportunity to explain the cause of the Nine-Tails' attack, Konoha's leadership came to suspect a member of the Uchiha clan was responsible due to the Sharingan's ability to control the Nine-Tails. Hiruzen admired his teacher and wanted to become a great Hokage just like him.  With Minato dead, Hiruzen once more assumed the role of active Hokage while deciding to protect the orphaned child by giving him his mother's last name to conceal his relation to Konoha's Yellow Flash. Combining efforts with the spirits of the other dead Kage, they summon Team 7, Madara, and the tailed beasts back from Kaguya's dimension.  He could likewise produce powerful streams of Lightning, Water, and Wind Release respectively. He calls off the search party when it becomes clear that Naruto will return, but Hiruzen worries that Naruto's learning of the Multiple Shadow Clone Technique from the Scroll will risk the Nine-Tails' to escape from his body. Hiruzen eventually started investigating a number of disappearances throughout Konoha. He could also use Yin and Yang Release. By observing Obito's Truth-Seeking Balls he theorizes that they are similar to the Third Tsuchikage's kekkei tōta in that they are a combination of multiple nature transformations. But perhaps his most profound influence was on Uzumaki Naruto; his actions, as a leader, warrior, and surrogate grandfather went a long way in shaping the young ninja. He could also use Yin and Yang Release. Hiruzen led the village's defence until Minato arrived to remove the Nine-Tails to a safe distance. Hiroto Sarutobi (猿飛ひろと, Sarutobi Hiroto) is a Shinobi of Konohagakure's Sarutobi Clan and a descendant of the Yuki Clan through his mother, Harumi.. However, he can bypass this by using a shadow clone to be sacrificed instead. Though, he had proven capable of using various powerful streams; powerful enough to offset and counterbalance Tobi's elemental attacks. The Uchiha resented this suspicion and began planning a coup d'tat, something reported to Hiruzen and the Konoha Council by Uchiha Itachi. By combining it with shadow clones he could seal the souls of multiple targets, thus delaying the sealing of his own soul. He then witnessed the preliminary rounds of the final matches, only to tell the advancing genin about the challenge and their training.
