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.

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.

    He didn't want to know where the creator of Naruto got their names. He wanted to know why they're called legendary.

    And the dead thread rule doesn't apply in the specific anime forums. Don't try to teach me the rules.

    The end he wanted is questionable. Forgive me all knowing mod for misunderstanding something. However, whether or not either of us is right, this is hardly the place to argue about it. For future reference, if you wish to argue with me, pm it to me.

    I see you are trying to place yourself above me (and failing at it). However I will not take this to the PMs I get enough of those already. The question is clear.

    The thread title: How did the sannins become so legendary?


    I hope you know enough basic English to understand that sentence.

    We know that Tsunade is legendary because of her medical skills, Orochimaru ( i think) because of his "experiments" in immortality, and Jirachi because of his strength and because he was the 4th's teacher. I don't know if this is exact but it seems like the most possible to me. i don't think that they are that well known to the general public because I remember Naruto being clueless about them being the Sannin.

    Remeber there were the ninja wars only a few years back so they could have won their titles in the war, too.

    Re: How did the sannins become so legendary?

    erm just a guess here but could it be that the only answer to this question with the amount of information you can gather from the naruto anime is that the 3 ninja in question are somehow famous enough to be branded "legendary" and as for "sanin" again this is only a guess as i dont actually understand japanese but im guessing it to be a form of discription for the ninja and have a link between the 3 of them so id guess that it somehow refers to thier summoning ability of the highest ranking creatures possible?

    and sorry to speak out of turn but personaly i feel it is fruitless for a MOD to speak to a member in such a way that it implies they have lost thier temper and are defending thier given right of authority? true you are probably swamped with PM`s and that taking the discussion would only make that worse but posting it on this thread just looks like you 2 are bickering!

    :S hope this reply does drag me into the fight too! ^_^

    It's probably not because of Orochimaru's experiments. That would make him infamous rather than famous.
    It's probably because they were just so exceptionally talented. High level ninja.
