Jiraiya (Naruto)

Fictional character from Naruto

Jiraiya (自来也) is a fictional character in the Narutomanga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. Introduced in the series' first part, he was a student of Third Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi and one of the three "Legendary Great Three Students of the God Shinobi"—along with Orochimaru and Lady Tsunade, his former teammates. Jiraiya appears as a perverted old man who occasionally returns to the village Konohagakure, reporting the activities of Orochimaru and the organization Akatsuki. Referred to as the "Toad Sage" and "Pervy Sage", he mentors Fourth Hokage Minato Namikaze and later becomes the godfather and mentor of Minato's son, Naruto Uzumaki.

Jiraiya appears in two Naruto films, and as a playable character in most of the franchise's video games. Various pieces of merchandise based on him have been released. He has received positive critical reception and is considered one of the strongest in the series. Reviewers have praised Jiraiya's introduction in the story and his relation with Naruto as his mentor. Out of all student-teacher relationships in Naruto, Jiraiya and Naruto's are the ones Kishimoto liked the most. He served as a strong father-figure to Naruto.

Creation and conception[edit]

Manga author Masashi Kishimoto first conceived Jiraiya's name based on Kabuki. He conceptualized him as a wizard with frog-like traits. He gave him an incisive and energetic speech pattern specific to old Kabuki plays. Kishimoto stated that Jiraiya "makes everything more colorful" since he is one of the few characters who enjoy talking.[1] Regarding the bonds in the story, Kishimoto highlighted the importance of the character's death during his fight against Pain; this remark was made since, in his last moments, Jiraiya manages to discover the origin of Pain's multiple bodies and uses his last forces to send a message to Naruto Uzumaki in which he explains how Pain can be defeated. Kishimoto felt he had done a good job of establishing Jiraiya's last moments.[1] He commented that out of all the master-pupil relationships he had created in the Naruto series, the bond between Naruto and Jiraiya is his favorite, stating that drawing their interactions was "worthwhile".[2] Jiraiya was one of the characters that resonated the most with the author alongside Naruto, Sasuke Uchiha, and Haku.[3]

At the 2015 New York Comic-Con, when asked which character besides Naruto is his favorite, Kishimoto chose Jiraiya. Due to the fans' preference, Kishimoto drew a sketch of Jiraiya in front of the audience at the event. He stated he felt nostalgic since this was the first time he had drawn Jiraiya or any other character in the series for a while. However, Kishimoto did not remember how to draw Jiraiya initially, and thus he used a person among the spectators who was cosplaying Jiraiya as a reference.[4] After being asked which character's point of view he would choose to tell the story from instead of Naruto's if given the possibility, Kishimoto listed Jiraiya as one of his choices. He elaborated on this by stating Jiraiya was not very knowledgeable at a young age, feeling that this aspect would have created an interesting contrast with Jiraiya's "not so much arrogant, but overconfident, blusterous, and very, very skilled" adult self and that the story presenting Jiraiya's development would have been "fun to draw".[5] Kishimoto further mentioned that jutsu was still in the process of developing during Jiraiya's childhood, and he felt this would have been an engaging subject to depict in the series.[5] Jiraiya is played by Hōchū Ōtsuka in the series' original animated adaptation,[6] while David Lodge voices him in the English dub.[7]

David Lodge stated that Jiraiya is one of viewers' "favorite characters".[8] When questioned if he is frequently asked to voice Jiraiya in new features since the character is a part of such a popular franchise, he answered affirmatively. Lodge stated that besides being known as the "Toad Sage" due to controlling frogs, Jiraiya is also known as the "Pervy Sage", considering this a "big deal" in Japan due to such content being classified as sensitive.[8] He stated that in the United States, a lot of the things regarding the "Pervy Sage" part had to be restricted.[8] Lodge said that Jiraiya was the best character he had ever played due to having "so many dimensions"; he elaborated by mentioning that while Jiraiya can be "crazy", he can also be a "very serious, philosophical, wise sage".[8] He characterized this aspect of Jiraiya's personality as "fun".[8] He said he had "such a good time" playing Jiraiya, stating he managed to "delve into a character that is more than one-dimensional" in the process of voicing him.[8] Lodge also stated he has "a huge fanbase" for Jiraiya's character. He commented that Jiraiya is his favorite character, characterizing him as "such a grand scope character".[9]


In Naruto[edit]

Jiraiya is a ninja from the village of Konohagakure trained by Hiruzen Sarutobi, the future Third Hokage.[10][11] He becomes known as the "Toad Sage" due to his training under the Great Toad Sage in the field of Senjutsu (仙術, lit. "sage techniques"), enabling him to summon toads as allies during battles.[12][13] The Great Toad Sage also informs Jiraiya of a prophecy that he will mentor a child who will either save the world or destroy it.[14] As he grows older, Jiraiya and his two teammates, Orochimaru and Tsunade, are collectively referred to as the "Legendary Sannin" owing to their exemplary ninja abilities allowing them to survive a fight against Hanzo—Amegakure's dictator—during the Second Great Ninja War.[15] Soon after, Jiraiya encounters a trio of Amegakure orphans consisting of Nagato, Yahiko, and Konan, training the three in ninjutsu to protect themselves before returning to the Land of Fire. At that time, Jiraiya considered Nagato to be the child from the Great Toad Sage's prophecy.

For most of his adult life, though loyal to Konohagakure, Jiraiya periodically leaves his hometown to explore the world.[16] Sometime later, Jiraiya becomes a mentor to Minato Namikaze, the future Fourth Hokage, who dies due to sealing the Nine-Tailed Fox inside his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki.[17] Jiraiya makes only sporadic appearances, returning to Konohagakure after long absences to report on information he has learned throughout his travels.[18][19] During his first appearance in the series' Part I, Jiraiya takes the time to train Naruto, teaching him his own signature abilities and trying to help him learn how to control Kurama.[20][21] When his teacher, Hiruzen, who has resumed his duty as the Third Hokage since Minato's death, dies during an invasion by Orochimaru, Jiraiya is offered the position of Hokage. Despite this, Jiraiya thinks his inability to prevent Orochimaru from becoming a criminal makes him unworthy of the responsibility and instead offers to search for Tsunade so that she can take the position instead—a task he eventually succeeds at.[22] After Naruto's flawed attempt to retrieve Sasuke Uchiha,[23][24] Jiraiya decides to take the boy for two and a half years of training to make him strong enough to bring Sasuke back and to protect himself from the Akatsuki organization.[25]

In Part II, Jiraiya returns to inform Kakashi Hatake and Yamato about the threat Naruto can become under the Nine-Tails's influence by telling them of his near-death experiences when the youth used only a fraction of Kurama's power.[26][27] To keep Naruto from participating in Team 7's new Sasuke-related mission, Jiraiya offers to train him again and takes Naruto to Yugakure, the Village Hidden in Boiling Water.[28] After entrusting Naruto with the key to Kurama's seal, Jiraiya begins investigating the Akatsuki's leader, Pain.[28][29] His investigation leads him to battle Pain, whom he recognizes to be Nagato using the corpses of Yahiko and five other ninja he met in his journey.[30] At the battle's conclusion, while reflecting on his life, Jiraiya realizes that Naruto is the boy foretold in the prophecy.[31] Due to this, remembering it was his first novel that inspired Minato to name his son after the book's protagonist, Jiraiya musters the strength to send a message able Nagato's Paths of Pain, along with a disabled Animal Path, to Naruto and the rest of Konohagakure to give them an edge.[32][31] While Pain kills Jiraiya, he concludes that Naruto will be the true hero.[32]

In other media[edit]

Jiraiya makes an appearance in two Naruto films, Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Bonds (2008) and Naruto Shippuden the Movie: The Will of Fire (2009). He is a playable character in most Naruto video games, including the Clash of Ninja series, the Ultimate Ninja series, and the Path of the Ninja series.[33][34][35] In the first Ultimate Ninja game (2003), he only appears as a support to Naruto during his special techniques.[35] In the Path of the Ninja RPG series, he is a character who can be spoken to for information and support.[33] In Ultimate Ninja 2 (2004), he is an available character and has been given variations of the Rasengan, fire techniques, and toads summoning techniques. In Path of the Ninja 2 (2006), he is not only a character in the storyline, but a "secret" acquirable character that can be added to the team as a fully active member.[35]


Jiraiya has appeared in several of the main Shōnen Jump popularity polls. In the second and third, he ranked in the top ten.[36] In the fourth poll, he ranked 11th.[37] In the last poll conducted in 2011, Jiraiya was placed 16th.[38] Merchandise based on Jiraiya has also been released, including action figures, key chains, and headbands similar to his.[39][40][41][42] Naruto's Japanese voice actress, Junko Takeuchi, was reminded of Jiraiya's close relationship with Naruto when reading the script of The Last: Naruto the Movie.[43]

Several manga, anime, and video game reviewers have praised the character of Jiraiya. Davey Jones of ActiveAnime regarded Jiraiya's training with Naruto as good comic relief and stated that the two characters are similar.[44]AnimeonDVD's Justin Rich praised Jiraiya's introduction in the series, describing him as a funny character.[45] Jason Van Horn of IGN commented on Jiraiya's relationship with Naruto, writing that "they share so much in common".[46] Matt Shingleton of DVDTimes viewed Jiraiya as "the greatest character Masashi Kishimoto [had] ever created in this series" and further said that "besides the fact he fills the comical pervert archetype [he is] one of the strongest characters in the series and just about everything about him is rough and unpredictable".[47]Jason Thompson praised the character's Sage Mode, commenting that it would make a good cosplay. He also expressed shock at the character's death while fighting Pain, considering him a sympathetic person.[48] Luke Carroll of Anime News Network enjoyed David Lodge's role as Jiraiya's English voice actor.[49]Hiroshi Matsuyama found that Jiraiya's death had a major impact in his work as a game designer in the Naruto games due to his previous works from .hack never actually had a death in the narrative with the exception being Harold who is already dead during the .hack series.[50]

In 2010, Shueisha published the first novel Jiraiya wrote, which was inspired by his student Nagato and prompted Minato and Kushina Uzumaki to name their son after its protagonist. The novel is titled Naruto: Tales of a Gutsy Ninja (Naruto―ナルト―ド根性忍伝, Naruto: Dokonjō Ninden) and follows the fictional character Naruto Musasabi. Naruto tries to track down his former comrade, Renge Momoashi, and unravel a mysterious conspiracy involving the destruction of a nearby village.[51][52] In 2015, Shueisha released Jiraiya's second novel, Naruto: The Tale of the Utterly Purehearted Shinobi (Naruto -ナルト- ド純情忍伝, Naruto: Dojunjō Ninden), which presents a battle between two fighters who appear to be related.[53][54]

Why wasn't Jiraya able to use Sage mode completely?

The title great Legendary Sannin does not mean theat he was the master of all types of techniques. He has sealing jutsus, summonings, body activation, combination techniques and is a pretty darn awesome Ninja. He did master the Sage techniques, he just couldn't perfect it.

Naruto surpasses Jiraiya as a Sage because of the nature of Sage chakra. It has to be in balance with the other two types of chakra in you. The balance was slightly tending towards Senjutsu chakra for Jiraiya and hence the toad like appearance, doesn't mean he didn't master how to use it.

Naruto mastered it too, but with the balance being perfect. Also, his clone training technique gave him 4 times more practice [exponentially more] than what Jiraiya was able to spare during his missions and travels. So it is possible that's a reason he was able to perfect it. Surpassing his master meant the perfect balance of chakra without any frog features according to sage Fukasaku.

They both were masters of Senjutsu, as they were able to use it without becoming a toad, were able to perform Kawazu kumite [excuse me if that's a typo] and giant rasengans. HTH.

Naruto: 20 Of Jiraiya's Powers, Ranked

It seemed like a conventional story at first. Ebisu is teaching Naruto chakra control and Naruto is struggling to take him seriously. Suddenly, Ebisu tenses up and his attention shifts away from Naruto. It was in this moment that fans of the series were introduced to Jiraiya, the Toad Sage. The series would never be the same.

Jiraiya made his mark on both Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden through his role as Naruto’s sensei. Being one of the three legendary Sannin ninjas put Jiraiya on a whole other level. Through his training of Naruto, Jiraiya instilled a greater sense of duty in the protagonist, but, on another level, he also introduced Naruto to some killer techniques. Jiraiya’s ability made him one of the strongest shinobi to ever appear in the manga/anime, and with that ability came some amazing power.

Clearly, Jiraiya packed quite a heavy arsenal of high-level jutsu into every fight he was involved in. However, just how strong are some of those powers? And which are his strongest? Well, Screen Rant is here to answer that. This list will look at 20 of the Toad Sage’s incredible powers and rank them from “weakest” to strongest. In this list, weakest means not as strong as the other powers mentioned, as Jiraiya’s techniques are all strong. Also, the jutsu mentioned in this list are all considered for their peak ability and not what was shown in his battles.

So, without further ado, let's get into all things Toad with 20 Of Jiraiya's’ Powers, Ranked.

20 Taijutsu and Durability

Okay, so this is a general ability. Saying Taijutsu means this entry can go a lot of ways. Yet, what this entry is saying is Jiraiya has talented taijutsu, but that is not the high mark of this talents. In fact, his speed and strength are not even the most impressive aspects of his taijutsu.

It is actually Jiraiya’s durability that feels remarkably inhuman. The guy is a boulder when it comes to absorbing damage. This durability shows in his ability to handle a Might Guy kick with barely a scratch and take the full force of Tsunade’s strength without taking severe damage. Its Jiraiya’s durability that keeps him alive for so long in his fight with Nagato (Pain).

19 Fuuinjutsu

So, Fuuinjutsu is a confusing technique. It feels like a lot of ninjas should be able to master seals, but the series shows viewers that time and time again only the most powerful shinobi fully understand the art of seals and how to use their power effectively.

Keeping this in mind, it makes Jiraiya’s abilities worth noting. Though the hermit sage does not use seals often, when Jiraiya does utilize them, you can bet they pack a big wallop. For instance, Jiraiya creates a chakra suppression seal to help keep the Nine-Tail Fox chakra from overcoming Naruto. That is some serious power that often goes underlooked due to the confusion over the difficulty to use such a technique.

18 Needle Jizo

Jiraiya has an incredible look. He feels like a shinobi with character and distinct taste. In fact, his whole appearance is notable, but the wildest part is his hair. It is a long white mane that only the Toad Sage could pull off. That hair is also a weapon though.

One of the jutsu involving Jiraiya’s hair is Needle Jizoo (or Needle Jizo). The technique allows Jiraiya to encase himself in his hair while chakra makes the hair hard and pointy (like a needle). This is a powerful defensive move and his hair becomes strong enough to withstand several types of ninja weapons. That’s one tough hair-do.

17 Wild Lion's Mane Technique

Yes, this entry is also about hair. Jiraiya has amazing hair, has that been mentioned? It has. Well, that hair can also be used in offensive jutsu, that adds a little more of a kick than the Needle Jizo.

The Wild Lion’s Mane Technique is an odd, but useful jutsu. With it, Jiraiya uses chakra to lengthen his hair and make the texture like steel wool. He then is able to move his hair around so that it wraps around the enemy and binds to it. The wool takes the shape of a lion (hence the name) and once it completely binds the target it can destroy it by squeezing the enemy.

16 Hiding in a Toad Technique

The award for most obvious jutsu name goes to this entry. However, this is also the first of Jiraiya’s toad powers to be explored on this list. The Hiding in a Toad Technique is fairly simple, but it has advantages when it comes to combat.

This jutsu is an infiltration technique. Jiraiya utilizes it to escape from detection-style jutsu. To use it, the legendary sannin summons a special diving toad and then hides in its mouth. It sounds gross, but Jiraiya is the Toad Sage so this does not appear to bother him. Once in the toad’s mouth, Jiraiya and the toad can dive underwater and sneak up on an enemy without being detected.  

15 Toad Oil Bullet

Fun fact: toads secrete oil. Jiraiya loves his toads so it makes sense that, like them, Jiraiya also has a jutsu involving toad oil. Only this jutsu is much more deadly than oil on a toad’s back.

The hermit sage, in all his talent, converts chakra into oil like that found on a toad and then spits it out of his mouth in high volumes. In doing this, Jiraiya is able to capture his enemy in an oil slick. What makes this jutsu even better is it cannot easily be washed away by a water jutsu. So, not only can Jiraiya capture his enemy with this jutsu, but escaping it becomes no small task as well.

14 Barrier: Toad Gourd Prison

Okay, so this list involves a lot of toads if you did not already know that. On top of that, this list also involves people going inside toad’s mouths. Heck, it is this oddity in style that makes Jiraiya such a memorable and lasting character in fan’s minds. So this is why Jiraiya’s ability with barrier jutsu comes down to a toad.

The toad gourd is an odd summoning. The toad will swallow an enemy and leave them trapped in their acidic stomach. This allows Jiraiya to isolate an enemy from their team and fight in a dangerous terrain. Jiraiya is given even more advantage if he chooses to fight inside the Toad Gourd Prison because he is deeply familiar with the layout while the enemy would not be.  This barrier jutsu is good for giving Jiraiya the advantage and it’s strange that viewers did not get to see it more often in the series.

13 Summoning: Toad Mouth Bind

That is right! Another entry discussing the mouth of a toad! Seriously, Jiraiya has found many ways to utilize a toad’s mouth, but this has to be one of the coolest. The Toad Mouth Bind jutsu does not have an everyday use, but when the situation calls for it, it comes in handy.

Fans saw the debut of this jutsu during a clash with Itachi Uchiha and Kisame Hoshigaki of the Akatsuki. Jiraiya is able to summon the esophagus (just the esophagus, seriously) of a giant toad. He can then control that esophagus to hold bind a target in place and prevent them from moving. What’s more is that this jutsu can work on multiple targets and gives Jiraiya a way of controlling the battle for at least a moment.  

12 Flame Bullet

One remarkable talent Jiraiya has that makes him so powerful is his ability to master many styles of jutsu. In the series, Jiraiya can be seen showing an expert level understanding of fire, earth, and water style jutsu. One of the better offensive techniques he has is his Flame Bullet.

This jutsu is exactly as it sounds and it is not a rare or difficult ability. Yet, when you have the strength and talent Jiraiya has, then the ability to shoot flaming bullets out of your mouth gets more powerful. Jiraiya’s Flame Bullet jutsu is powerful on its own, even if the audience did not get to see it stand out on its own super often.

11 Barrier: Canopy Method Formation

To defeat the enemy, one must be able to spot the enemy. That is why the barrier jutsu known as Canopy Method Formation is a useful technique that Jiraiya has mastered. Even if the jutsu itself is rather simple and not as flashy as his Toad Gourd Prison summoning jutsu.

Canopy Method Formation Jutsu allows Jiraiya to detects enemies. The Toad Sage releases a spherical barrier around himself that alerts him when anyone crosses through it. After that person crosses through, Jiraiya is able to use the jutsu to follow them and track their movements as they move inside the barrier. It’s an incredibly useful skill for any ninja attempting to avoid a sneak attack or map out enemy forces.

10 Toad Flatness

The Toad Flatness-Shadow Manipulation technique feels like one of the more underrated moves Jiraiya has showcased. After all, it works in a similar way to Shikamaru Nara’s jutsu. However, it only lasts as long as Jiraiya can hold his breath.

While holding his breath, Jiraiya is able to flatten into an enemy’s shadow and control them. He can use the target as a shield and even make them speak. This gives Jiraiya a remarkable advantage when outnumbered. With this jutsu, Jiraiya can theoretically control any ninja for a least a few moments and in those few moments, he can do a lot of damage.

9 Summoning: Mayhem Technique

Now, this jutsu quite literally brought down the house when fans first saw it (hence its other name Bring Down the House). Jiraiya’s powers became instantly notable when fans saw him summon a toad in the sky and use it to crush a giant snake. Like, think about that for a moment. He was able to jump in the sky, cast a summoning jutsu, and make it so strong that he drops a massive toad on a huge snake. That is amazing.

The Mayhem Technique is definitely an attack move that even the best shinobi would be threatened against. Jiraiya does not use the Mayhem Technique often, but its effects are notable when it does come into play. There are not many jutsu in the world that could cause so much immediate damage like this one.

8 Earth Style: Swamp of the Underworld

Jiraiya can summon and create a lot of things, between toads and fire that seems like it would be enough, right? Wrong, Jiraiya can even create a swamp through the use of this earth style jutsu.

Swamp of the Underworld allows the user to turn the area around the enemy into a muddy swamp. Jiraiya uses this jutsu to capture large enemies and hold them through his chakra. The more chakra a user has, the larger the swamp, so that means Jiraiya is able to create an incredibly large swamp. Also, the jutsu does not have to be used on the ground, so Jiraiya can capture an enemy on the ceiling and use the jutsu that way too.


This jutsu is the best of both worlds. The Toad Oil Fireball jutsu is a combination technique that Jiraiya primarily uses with Gamabunta. This jutsu combines earth and fire style jutsu to make one of the best offensive techniques in Jiraiya’s arsenal.

Gamabunta starts the jutsu by launching huge Toad Oil Bullets at the enemy. From on top of father toad, Jiraiya then uses his Flame Bullet technique to light the oil bullets on fire. What it creates is massive fires balls of burning toad oil. One would hate to take that kind of hit straight on which makes the style so powerful.

6 Toad Binding Duet

Jiraiya is not known for his Genjutsu. In fact, his most powerful Genjutsu does not even actually come from him. The Toad Binding Duet (or Demonic Illusion: Gama Rinsho) is a song performed by the Two Great Sage Toads, and Jiraiya only offers them protection.

The Toad Binding Duet is incredibly difficult to perform, as the Two Great Sage Toads have to find the right harmony. To do this they give away their position and must rely on Jiraiya to protect them as they perform the song. However, once the song is done the enemy is surrounded by four toad samurai. These samurai bind the target and the enemy cannot be released until the user allows it. Often, the Genjutsu can be used to eliminate an enemy with the stone swords of Mount Myoboku.

5 Rasengan

Fans were waiting for this entry. After all, the Rasengan is one of the most famous techniques in the entire series, and Jiraiya is the one who introduced viewers to it. So clearly his version of it is also immensely powerful.

However, Jiraiya did not create the Rasengan. Minato Namikaze, the fourth Hokage, actually invented it. However, Jiraiya shows a deep knowledge of the technique. The Rasengan is about controlling a concentrated amount of chakra and rotating it at a high speed. Once mastered, the Rasengan can cause damage even more destructive than the Chidori. That fact alone makes this one of the most powerful techniques any ninja can master, period.


This technique is similar to Jiraiya’s Toad Binding Duet Genjutsu in that it can only be used with the help of the Two Great Sage Toads, Shima, and Fukasaku. When summoned, the two can help Jiraiya pull off this devastating move. It is one that fans wish they could see more of, even if it takes a lot of chakra to produce.  

Goemon is cooperation technique. Jiraiya creates a huge amount of oil that he then spits out of his mouth. At the same time, Fukasaku uses wind release to propel the oil forward in a large wave. Shima then caps off the technique by performing a fire release that heats the oil up. The result is a giant tsunami of super hot oil that burns everything in its path. This power has the ability to destroy even more enemies than the Mayhem Technique, which makes it a mammoth of a jutsu that Jiraiya can perform.

3 Sage Mode

Some of the most powerful techniques could not be possible without this entry. That is why Sage Mode is one of the most significant powers Jiraiya has. It gives him the ability to create some of the other jutsu mentioned.

Sage Mode is the ability for a ninja to use senjutsu chakra, a way of gathering on natural energy. Through this natural energy, the Sage Mode user is able to create more powerful jutsu and sees an increase in strength and durability. Sage Mode is the secret sauce that makes many of Jiraiya’s jutsu the remarkable techniques they are, so one has to appreciate where the power comes from too.


The Chief Toad of Mount Myoboku is not to be underestimated. Some fans might argue that Bunta is strong, but not as powerful as he is given credit for. That is simply not true though. Gamabunta is the key ally for Jiraiya in many of his battles and the ability to summon him is not easy. Chief Toad is stubborn and grumpy which makes him hard to deal with, however, when he works with the summoner he makes it all worth it.

After all, Gamabunta is able to cast ninjutsu on his own and he shows amazing agility for his size. Most shinobi who most battle with him and Jiraiya often find themselves overmatched for the most part. Gamabunta helps Jiraiya make some of these other jutsu more powerful (like the Toad Oil Fireball and the Mayhem Technique). So, with that in mind, clearly, this summoning jutsu is one of the most powerful abilities Jiraiya has that viewers know.


Jiraiya gets credit for crafting the most powerful iteration of the Rasengan the series has ever seen (even though the full damage potential has not truly been shown). There are many variations to the Rasengan, and a few could have made this list. However, the Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan felt the most appropriate.

The technique is seen as the penultimate version. It draws on the natural energy Jiraiya is able to access in Sage Mode. This natural energy allows the user to control a Rasengan so large that is can end up being larger than the user’s body. When hit with it, an enemy will be completely destroyed. It is said the Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan can carve away an entire mountain. If true, that makes this a monumental technique Jiraiya can use.

How strong you think a Perfect Sage Mode Jiraiya would be ?

Turrin said:

I don't really believe there is any relevant difference between a "Perfect" SM and "Imperfect" SM

Click to expand...

Wrong , you think manga showed us both versions just for the lolz ?

Turrin said:

We also saw both "Perfect" SM and "Imperfect" SM result in similar boosts to their Ninjutsu. When Jiraiya added Senjutsu to his Rasengan it became Chou Oddoma Rasengan, and when Naruto added it to his Rasengan, it also became Chou Oddoma Rasengan, rather than it becoming some Omega Chou Oddoma Rasengan for "Perfect" Sage Naruto

You couldn't be more wrong .
Jiraiya's COR :

Naruto's COR , Naruto looks microscopic :

There's a big difference , Naruto's COR is three times the size of Jiraiya's .
Naruto's SM COR >> Naruto's SM OR >= Jiraiya's SM COR .
Not only this , but Naruto can make several of these

And can add wind chakra to it and make it even more bigger in SM

Turrin said:

It's also not like we saw Naruto's physical abilities drastically exceed Jiriaya's;

Click to expand...

Wrong , we have feats like Naruto suplexing Kurama with no effort , tossing a giant Rhino into the sky , that's above what Jiraiya has desplayed on panel .
Jiraiya's punch was stopped by Ningendo with ease , Pain's paths were getting wrecked left and right in CQC against Naruto . Jiraiya's kick couldn't finish off Ningendo , a ghost punch from Naruto one shotted Gakido .

Turrin said:

both were enhanced speed wise to a certain extent but not enough to overcome shared vision

Click to expand...

Wrong , Naruto was on top of Gamakichi who was on top of Gamabunta several hundreds of meters away from Pain , he could still create a clone and create a Rasengan , body flicker and blitz Shurado who was boosting his speed with jet boots .
Naruto's clone in SM could dodge the Raikage's hell stab at point blank , and even stated how his reactions and threat perception in SM is even greater than kurama Chakra Mode .
Jiraiya in SM doesn't have feats or statement that puts his speed and/or reactions on this level , Naruto's speed feats are far better it's not even funny .

Turrin said:

Literally the only difference ever highlighted by the manga between the two modes, is "Perfect" Sages can balance the three energies better than "Imperfect" ones, thus resulting in less animal features. But this was never highlighted to have any major impact on the performances of the respective Toad-Sages Modes. Rather I think this distinction was only included in the case of Naruto's Sage Mode for two reasons

Click to expand...

Wrong . Naruto's SM feats are far better than Jiraiya's , the problem is that base Naruto is way below base Jiraiya , so the boost Naruto gets from his " perfect " SM is far more better .

Turrin said:

1) Aesthetics. For Jiraiya gaining heavy Toad features fit his characterization as the old Toad Hermit. However for Naruto getting a bunch of warts and Toad features wouldn't fit the stylistic image Kishi was going for with his character, so Kishi had to come up with an excuse to make Naruto's Toad-SM different.

Click to expand...

I'd feel extremely bad if a great poster like yourself Turrin could read the manga and reach such a conclusion , you just ignored all the differences these two characters desplayed in SM on panel .

Turrin said:

So give Jiraiya "Perfect" Toad Sage Mode, and I don't think hardly anything changes.

Click to expand...

You mean aside from becoming much faster , stronger , having bigger scaled techniques , precog that rivals the Sharingan , better CQC abilities .... etc
