    The 3 sannins were the first ninjas to create the summoning jutsus: Jiraiya has the toad, Tsunade the Slug, and Orochimaru the snake!

    Wrong. If that statement was true, then explain how there were over a dozen other signatures on Gamabunta's contract scroll. Summoning has been going on way before the 3 Sannins.

    The reason they were called the Three Legendary Sannins was because they were the students of the Third Hokage. Being some of the strongest ninja to ever be produced out of Konoha, they were considered legendary. The 3 Sannins are all S-class and are all potentials to be Hokage material. With the exception of Orochimaru of course.

    They got there name because they are the genius ninja's. They have powers that are on par with kage's and each has a certain skill that is very stong... Tsunade's incredible med-jutsu and str a.k.a chakra cntrl and jiraya's amazing jutsu abilities and orochimarus power. now this is a guess but im guessing sannin itself mean legendary ninja... cause it goes san-nin... but i unno...

    Re: How did the sannins become so legendary?

    Your not even answering the question anymore >.< The real statement of how theyre name came to be is unknown to me. Orochimaru is the only one I can even make a guess on and it is from an old Japanese ledgend of the Kusanagi Sword (sp?) It was belived that long a ago an eight-headed/eight tailed (depending on the story teller) snake demon seiged war to many villages. A man stepped forth and prayed for an answer to this dilema of a situation, he then went into combat and by hacking through one of the eight tails/ heads, he found a sword imbeded in it. He raised the sword and with a mighty swing, vanguished the demon to hell by cutting the air into bladed sickles of pure wind. He named it the Grass-Cutter Blade (This wind technique may have also been a basis for Inuyasha's 'Wind Scar' technique now that I think of it) and became emperor by gaining the right to win the previous emperors daughters hand in marrage. The Kusanagi (also the name of the sword orochimaru is weilding in the fight with sarutobi) was then displayed for many a year. Until his great great grandson (may be older may be younger) used it to prevent his own demise in a field fire, purpousfully meant to kill him so they could steal the sword. Further down the line the swords original owners family lost power and a new man took power, with no remaining family the current power built a shrine for the sword. When war seiged the land again the emporere whom ammusingly had no sword-skill and therefore unable to envoke the swords fury, took the sword from the shrine and many other artifacts and commited hari-kari(Sp?) by taking a boat far out to the ocean and drowning himself with these posessions.

    As for the summons its Rock-Paper-Scissors in Japanese. The game there is 'Toad-Snake-Slug' in which snake beats toad, toad beats slug and slug(as shown in the tsunade orochi fight thoroughly >.<) beats snake.

    The sannins were the first to create the summoning jutsus: Jirachi has his toad, Tsunade has her slug(s), and Orochimaru has his evil snake.

    Actually, I recently found out the names. Orochimaru, Orochi, an old ledgend of a man who was treasoness to his village and went off with an evil snake who learned snake magic. Jiraiya, the toad sage a man whom presumably defeated the Snake Mage Orochi, Tsunade, Jiraiya's wife whom aided him in this fight with advanced healing magic, had magic prowess of slug magic as well.
