  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Naruto: That was no ordinary hand move! What kind of jutsu was that?!

    • Naruto: Hey, it's the Pervy Sage's checkbook. One, ten, one hundred... (Thinking) Look at all those zeros! (Speaking aloud) Jeez, he should be treating me if he's this loaded! For crying out loud! Cheap old geezer.

    • Jiraiya: (Referring to Naruto's money frog.) Oh baby, that is one fat frog you got! You're filthy rich.

    • Jiraiya: (About Tsunade) She's not the type to grow old gracefully. Probably using some kind of jutsu to mask her appearance. She's actually fifty years old, but I'm sure she'll look like she did in her twenties.

    • Naruto: (Asking about Tsunade) How old is she?
      Jiraiya: Same age as me.
      Naruto: (Thinking) Ugh, she's ancient.

    • Shizune: Aiee, this place has the highest minimum in town.
      Tsunade: Don't be such an old lady! Come on.

    • Jiraiya: (Thinking) This kid's got a one track mind.

    • Naruto: Pretty cool, huh? (Shows off the green jumpsuit Gai gave him)
      Jiraiya: Don't even think about it. I mean, look at that guy. Man, now that is goofy.

    • Jiraiya: (Thinking about the green jumpsuit Gai gave Naruto.) If you're going to walk around carrying that thing, you ought to pack a hand mirror or two, you idiot.

    • Naruto: (To his wallet) I like you better when you're fat...

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: (Sees Jiraiya drinking alcohol, and flirting with women after he just spent all of Naruto's money) Tell me what the 3 Taboos of a ninja are? You broke all three at the same time! How could you?!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Isn't the desire for women your weakness?

      ~Japanese version

    • Jiraiya: The three Taboos are three desires that'd endanger a ninja. They are: Liquor, women, and money.

      ~Japanese version

  • Notes

    • We find out that both Tsunade, and Jiraiya are about 50 years old.

    • Tsunade's name means "mooring rope".

    • Although, apart from the fantasy image, Naruto is never actually seen wearing the outfit he received from Gai, the Playstation 2 games Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2 and Naruto: Narutimate Hero 3 both have "Might Suit" Naruto as an unlockable character (Though the former game calls him "Taijutsu Naruto"). It is the only way to see this version of Naruto in action.

    • Original Airdate: June 2, 2004

    • Original Episode Title: The Pursuit of Knowledge! I'll Definately Get Stronger!!!
      Romaji Episode Title: Shugyou Kaishi Ore wa Zettee Tsuyokunaru!

    • Tsunade's nickname is revealed to be "The Legendary Sucker". The title comes from her poor luck with gambling.

    • In anime Naruto wins a lottery type thing, but in the manga Naruto won the jackpot in a slot machine.

    • Tsunade is the same age as Jiraiya, but uses a special jutsu to appear younger.

    • Jiraiya tells Naruto that Tsunade is an inveterate gambler, but with the worst luck in the world.

    • Jiraiya uses the new jutsu he is going to teach Naruto, the Rasengan.

  • Allusions

    • Tsunade's name is taken from the character of the same name from Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari ("The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya"). The Tsunade in that story excelled in snail magic and was married to Jiraiya.
