|“||I'm definitely vulnerable when I bet money! But! When I put my life on the line, that's a different story! That's how I've managed to survive this long!||„|
|“||I am the first descendant of First Hokage, Hashirama. I don't use Wood Style, that's true. My medical ninjutsu is pathetic compared to the First Hokage, who didn't need hand signs, and it's also true that I am a woman. But I'm not a weak woman, far from it. Physical strength isn't everything, there is something else, something passed down to me from the First Hokage, and that gives me what my true power is. Don't dare underestimate The Will of Fire!||„|
|~ Tsunade to Madara Uchiha before their fight|
Tsunade is one of Konohagakure's legendary Sannin. Though celebrated as the world's most powerful kunoichi and its greatest medical-nin, the repeated loss of her loved ones caused her to abandon the life of a shinobi for many years. She is eventually persuaded to return to Konoha and becomes its Fifth Hokage (五代目火影, Godaime Hokage, Literally meaning: Fifth Fire Shadow), where her skills proved invaluable to the village.

Weaknesses: Using her regeneration technique consumes a lot of chakras and shortens her lifespan, most of her superhuman strength is based on chakra and thus can run out.

She has unhealthy habits, such as severe gambling addiction and alcohol abuse.
- Ranshinshou (Body Pathway Derangement): Tsunade hits a particular point on the opponent's body and releases her chakra inside, disrupting and rearranging the nerve signals in the brain. The technique confuses the movements of the limbs, effectively paralysing them. For example, if someone is trying to move his right arm, a different body part would perform the same movement.
- Sozo Saisei (Creation Rebirth): By using a large amount of chakra, Tsunade can enter a regenerative state that allows her to heal from fatal wounds quickly and even regenerate lost limbs and organs. However, the use of this technique shortens her lifespan.
- Byakugo no Jutsu (Strength of a Hundred Technique): An advanced form of Tsunade's Creation Rebirth technique. She is covered in various tattoos and markings, giving her a general power increase and constant regenerative abilities.
- Summon Katsuyu: Tsunade summons her giant slug, Katsuyu. It can spit acid or heal others by dividing it into many small slugs and transfer its chakra directly to them.
- Chakra Transfer Technique: Tsunade can transfer her chakra to others, which powers up their abilities. It can bring Onoki's strengths up from Small City to Large Mountain level of power.
- Enkaku Chiyu (Remote Healing): Through the use of Katsuyu's clones, she can heal and shield an entire city's worth of people, unlocking her In Fuin (Yin Seal) can even protect the villagers from an attack that was capable of leveling a town.
