The Secret Behind Hashirama Senju Death


How did Hashirama Senju die? A lot of people don’t know that and some of them have their own theories, so today we will discuss that. Pls read until the end, and before we start you can join our FB group to be part of our family and add me on FB. So, without further delay let us begin.

Hashirama Senju was a member of the famed Senju clan. He himself was hailed as “The God of Shinobi” for his unmatched ninja prowess. Hashirama was famed as the strongest Shinobi of his era, reputed as a God of Shinobi. Despite renowned Kage struggling to face a single tailed beast, Hashirama’s prowess allowed him to capture and control the eight free-roaming tailed beasts, a feat which earned him the reputation as one of the few persons who could truly control them.

Hashirama Senju death

So if he was this strong, who could kill him and how did he die? Well, we don’t really have the exact answer on this question from manga and Anime, but I will use Databook and other stuff to find the reason behind his death.

In Character Data Book 1, Page 116, it is written that Hashirama died shortly after the founding of Konoha in one of the many wars that were raging during this revolutionary era, but now before passing on the title of Hokage to Tobirama.

As I said, in Data Book 1, it is written, that Hashirama died during the First Shinobi World War, necessitating his brother Tobirama Senju replace him as Second Hokage and as we know from Naruto chapter 481, pages 4-10 Tobirama would also die during the war, appointing his pupil Hiruzen Sarutobi as his successor before sacrificing himself to ensure his pupil’s escape from Kuomgakure’s ninja.

And this is what Data Book says about the First Great Ninja War, the First Shinobi War was the first of the great wars that involved the majority of Shinobi villages and countries. The war started not long after the system of one Shinobi village per country was established by the founding of Konohagakure. To try and maintain a balance of power, the First Hokage divided the tailed beasts among the other five villages when he began his peace talks with them.

So, we can pretty much assume, that Hashirama died in First Great Ninja War, where other Kages and Tailed Beasts were involved, but how and who killed him?

There are many people who strongly believes, that Kakuzu was the one, who killed Hashirama, but that’s not correct. In Third Data Book, pages 56-59, it is written that when under the servitude of Takigakure as an elite ninja, Kakuzu took on a mission to assassinate Hashirama Senju, the FIrst Hokage. This mission, however, ended in failure against the God of Shinobi.

madara vs Hashirama

Hashirama Senju might be stronger than all of the other Kages of his generation and all of the Tailed Beasts and maybe than Madara, but I doubt if he could beat them if all of them attacked him at once and this might be how he was defeated, but this just my theory. What is your theory about the death of Hashirama Senju? Tell me in the comments.

Hashirama Senju wife and son

We know from Naruto series that Hashirama is Tsunade’s grandfather, which means that Hashirama had a son/daughter and a wife. We know that his wife was Mito Uzumaki, but his son/daughter was not revealed in the Anime because the Anime didn’t focus on Tsunade’s’ parents so we don’t know anything about him/her, but I think in the future we will have some flashback about that, and I may explain it in some next post, but I want to know what do you think about it? Who are Hasirama’s son and wife?

Hashirama sage mode

We all know the main characters that use sage mode. For example, Naruto and Jiraiya went to Mount Myōboku to learn with toads, and Orochimaru and Kabuto went to Ryūchi Cave to learn it with snakes, but what kind of sage mode does Hashirama have? I will have a special post about this because it’s too long, but tell me what do you think about Hashirama’s sage mode?

Anyway, this is all for today. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. What do you think about it? Tell me your theories and opinions in the comments down below. I will be happy to read it and keep visiting ANIMES-KINGDOM.COM for more awesome theories. And follow me on FB and join our FB group to be part of our Anime family.
