Hey everyone! Hope you all are fine today. I’m back here at TheAnimeScrolls today with a very eye-catching theory about Jiraiya and Tobirama being relatives. But before I start this theory, I would like to warn the spoiler haters as this theory may contain some possible spoilers. But before I actually begin to talk about their relationship, let me give you some information about Tobirama and Jiraiya.
Tobirama Senju has been the Second Hokage of Konohagakure, and he was the brother of the First Hokage. He was given various titles like “The Creator”. Tobirama was known as the creator, as he is the creator of most Jutsu that exist today in the world. He has created various Forbidden Jutsu as well like Shadow Clone Jutsu, Reanimation Jutsu, etc. Also, he is known as the greatest user of Water Release. He has almost created all the powerful Water Release techniques that exist today.
Now, coming to Jiraiya. Jiraiya was one of the Three Sannin of Konohagakure, along with Orochimaru and Tsunade Senju. Jiraiya could also use the Sage mode of Mount Myōboku and could summon frogs as well. Jiraiya travelled the whole world in search of knowledge that would help his village Konohagakure, much like what Sasuke does right now. He protected Konohagakure from the shadows.
Now, I’m going to highlight some points that will prove that Jiraiya and Tobirama and related. First, the surname of Jiraiya was never mentioned in Naruto which raises some eyebrows. Secondly, Tobirama was the teacher of Hiruzen Sarutobi and Hiruzen Sarutobi was the teacher of Jiraiya. So, this means that they are a part of two generations. And the difference in time makes me think that Tobirama is his father.
Also, Jiraiya has white coloured hair and red markings near his eyes which again is exactly like Tobirama Senju. This again indicates that Tobirama is somehow related to him. Another very interesting thing is that when Konohagakure was formed, Senju clan intermarried with a lot of clans to increase the strength of Konohagakure.
It is possible that Jiraiya was also born in this process. It is also possible that Tobirama married several times for this reason, and that is why Jiraiya doesn’t use his surname Senju as he does not like his father, Tobirama. Tobirama might have left him and his mother. This may be the reason Jiraiya never mentions him, and never uses his surname. All these reasons do prove that Jiraiya is somehow connected to Tobirama Senju.
I also want to mention that right now in the manga a character named Kashin Koji has been introduced as a member of an organisation known as Kara. The point I want to make is that Kashin Koji also has white hair, and has markings near his eyes much like both Jiraiya and Tobirama. Another thing worth noticing is that Kashin Koji can summon frogs.
The interesting thing about summoning frogs is that whosoever has summoned frogs in the NarutoVerse has been related to Jiraiya. Like Naruto Uzumaki, Minato Namikaze were trained by Jiraiya himself and Konohamaru Sarutobi was trained by Naruto Uzumaki. And now if Kashin Koji uses frog summoning he surely will be related to Jiraiya somehow. Well, he could even be his son, or who knows a younger brother or something. Or he may be connected to Tobirama Senju as well.
What if Tobirama is the father of Jiraiya and Jiraiya will turn out to be the father of Kashin Koji? The concealing of Jiraiya’s surname has been one of the biggest and the most curious mysterious of NarutoVerse. And fans from day one have been making up theories about his parentage. But in my opinion, this theory makes some valid points, and this theory might even turn out to be true, who knows.
That is it from today’s theory about Tobirama and Jiraiya being relatives. Hope you guys found this theory interesting.
