In ninja culture, Orochimaru is seen as Jiraiya’s arch-enemy. Before he was possessed by snake power, he was a soldier in Jiraiya’s army and went by the name Yashagor. He manifested as Orochimaru, a gigantic serpent, and injected Jiraiya and Tsunade with his venom while they slept.
The venom of Orochimaru then enabled another disciple to save the slug princess. A manga series written by Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto Shippuden is an anime based on Masashi Kishimoto’s manga series of the same name in which exactly 500 episodes have been released to date.
It follows the Naruto universe two and a half years after the original series as Naruto Uzumaki and his allies face danger. TV Tokyo began broadcasting the series on February 15, 2007, and aired it until March 23, 2017. Hayato Date directed it, and Pierrot and TV Tokyo produced it.
Who is Orochimaru?
Orochimaru was an orphan who became a member of the Legendary Sannin after joining the Hiruzen team. Despite his complicated personality, many people, including Tsunade, have labeled Orochimaru as “twisted.” A member of the Hiruzen and Jiraiya and Tsunade teams, Orochimaru was an orphan who became a member of team Hiruzen. His talents, insights, and determination made him a prodigy that was only seen once in a generation, according to Hiruzen.
According to Hiruzen, a white snake represents rebirth and wealth. Tsunade was visiting his parents’ cemetery one day when he noticed the snake, which Hiruzen believed mirrored Orochimaru’s perverted disposition as a youngster. Jiraiya assumed Orochimaru was doing this to forget his sad memories, therefore Orochimaru researched banned methods in an attempt to master all of the techniques accessible.
The moniker of Three Legendary Sannin was bestowed to Orochimaru, Jiraiya, and Tsunade when they survived the Great Shinobi War despite being easily murdered. This was their prize after defeating Hanzo. Jiraiya stopped him from murdering three Ame orphans on the way back to Konoha and recommended training them instead. Jiraiya objected to Orochimaru’s proposal to murder them.
A year after escaping Konoha, Itachi joined Akatsuki. He partnered with Sasori and the duo performed well for the organization. Orochimaru was fascinated by Itachi when he joined the organization. In an attempt to steal Itachi’s body to gain the Sharingan, he was trapped inside a genjutsu by Itachi, and he was easily defeated.
When Does Orochimaru Come Back?
In the Naruto Shippuden anime, Orochimaru comes back to life in Season 15 Episode 21 episode named Orochimaru’s Return.
Suigetsu, in addition to showing Sasuke the scroll, he discovered in Orochimaru’s hideout earlier, explained that he is not one to die easily and that he intends to meet the “ones who know everything” after examining its contents. After explaining why he wanted to visit Orochimaru, Sasuke informed a bewildered Suigetsu that he was going to meet the “ones who know everything.”
Sasuke uses the Evil Releasing Method to resurrect Orochimaru with the help of Jgo. Despite his continued interest in Sasuke’s body, he adds that he is unable to perform the assignment at this time, despite his surprise that Sasuke would be the one to resurrect him. He maintains he has no desire to fight in a conflict.
Sasuke proclaims that he wants answers from those who are familiar with everything after displaying Orochimaru the scroll he got earlier. Orochimaru absorbed the chakra from the incapacitated Kabuto and agreed to the disciple’s request as they prepared to leave. Meanwhile, Naruto and the others watched as Tobi resurrected the Ten-Tails.
It bothers Kakashi that Tobi would bluff when the Eight and Nine-Tails’ chakras are still intact, and Gyki remarks that Akatsuki may have its chakra from its clone. With the situation analyzed, Kakashi is determined to stop the Ten-Tails’ revival from being completed, and Kurama agrees. The treasured tools swallowed by the Demonic Statue earlier may have contained its chakra. Despite the beast’s incomplete revival, the masked man declares that it is still possible to achieve the Infinite Tsukuyomi. As the group rallies to fight, Naruto attacks the statue in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.
Why Orochimaru is Almost Impossible to Kill
To keep himself alive, Orochimaru not only employs the Immortality Jutsu, but he also changes his body. Despite his terrible ability to regenerate, Orochimaru is capable of effortlessly repairing lost limbs and even creating a new body in times of extreme harm. Sasuke’s description of these techniques implies the White Snake Power, but Orochimaru will not need to wield it indefinitely. Even by current standards, the ninja is one of the strongest in the series.
The Third Hokage cut off his arms (and thus his Jutsu) and severely weakened him, but he was able to defeat Naruto in Tailed Beast Version 2 despite his arms (and thus Jutsu) being severed. As a former Akatsuki member, he continued to be considered a genuine threat by the Akatsuki. The powerful Kara member Victor was unable to defeat Orochimaru in Boruto after having his Jutsu restored.
Orochimaru has never died due to his immense might, his capacity for regeneration, and the Immortality Jutsu. He developed a greater interest in Sasuke’s natural growth as a result of his conflict with Itachi and changed the way he conducted his tests. He even occasionally sided with the leaf village.
