Tsunade, featured in the Japanese folktale Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari (“The tale of the gallant Jiraiya”), is the wife of the gallant ninja Jiraiya. She mastered in slug magic, and was able to turn into an enormous snail.
Tsunade is a former student of the Third Hokage. Tsunade and her former teammates, Jiraiya and Orochimaru, are known as the “Legendary Three Ninja” (Densetsu no Sannin) or simply the “Sannin”. The word “Hime” (“Princess”) is often attached to Tsunade’s name because she is the granddaughter of the First Hokage and the grandniece of the Second Hokage. Tsunade is well known for her large breasts, despite the fact that Jiraiya referred to her as “flat-chested Tsunade” during their childhood.
One of Tsunade’s noteworthy possessions was an amulet that belonged to her grandfather, which is said to be valuable enough to buy three mountains. On her brother, Nawaki’s, twelfth birthday, Tsunade gave the amulet to him in the hopes that it would help him achieve his dream of becoming Hokage. The next day, Nawaki died as one of the many casualties of the war going on at the time, and the amulet was returned to Tsunade’s possession. Sometime afterwards, Tsunade fell in love with a man named Dan, who also wanted to become Hokage. As a sign of her affection and in the hopes that it would help him achieve his goal, Tsunade gave him the amulet as well. Dan too would go on to die a bloody death during the course of the war, once again returning the amulet to her possession.
