Hashirama Senju was the founder of the Hidden Leaf Village and the First Hokage.
Tobirama Senju, a man who would later take over his brother role as Hokage. Tobirama was also the grandfather of Tsunade, who would one day become the fifth Hokage of Konoha, showing just how incredible his bloodline actually is.
Hashirama was an incredible leader, who showed loyalty and respect to his people, seeing them as a family in which the foundations of Konoha would be built upon. Hashirama was the first to believe that the Hokage should be willing to put there life on the line for the good of the people, out of respect for them, and that the leaf shinobi should be willing to do the same. It was with these beliefs and morals that Konoha was built upon and the standards that others followed.
Quite simply Hashirama was regarded as the most powerful ninja of his time, he was the most feared and most respected. So much so that even the legendary Uchiha clan showed respect for his power, even Madara who was the Uchihas most powerful shinobi had amazing respect for the first’s incredible power. Even when the Senju and the Uchiha where enemies the Uchiha still feared his amazing skill as a ninja.
The most famous ability of Hashirama was his wood release jutsu. This jutsu combined the earth and water elements to create a new nature jutsu. Hashirama was the only one in his time to be able to use this ability. Hashirama could use his wood release to grow entire forests, I which was used to build Konoha; he could manipulate these trees in order to attack. Hashirama had incredible control and power over his skill, he could surround enemies in trees to trap them, and he could even cause them to explode to damage them considerably. Hashirama could also create wood from his own body to attack.
Hashirama was not without other skills, he was a great in taijutsu and genjustu that even the Third found difficult to contend with. Hashirama could also summon weapons from scrolls. It is believed that because his wood release is a combination of earth and water, he could control these two nature types as well.
Hashirama eventually grew tired of the constant fighting with the Uchiha, Hashirama and the Senju, drew up a truce with the Uchiha clan. The two became allies and Hashirama along with Madara, became the founders of the five great shinobi nations, the first of which was Konohagakure. The new truce was not without its problems though. Madara was originally against the idea, and did not like how things were going, even his own people turned on him. Madara believed that he should be leader, because if he wasn’t the Uchiha would lose there supremacy.
