Major Story Arc

Search for Tsunade Arc

When traveling with Tsunade after a bad lost in gambling, they strolled down a walk way in Tanzaku town and met Orochimaru. It seemed that he wanted to make a deal with Tsunade. That if Tsunade uses her healing powers to cure Orochimaru's arms, Orochimaru will use a forbidden jutsu and bring back Tsunade's most dearest lost ones.

Shizune thought it was out of the ordinary and thought the idea was dumb. But, she notices Tsunade not answering and yells her name. Then she says she'll think about it. From that point on Shizune kept harassing Tsunade about her answer. Orochimaru even said it him self once Tsunade heals Orochimaru's arms he would destroy in Hidden Leaf Village.

Luckily, Naruto and Jiraiya are searching for the 5th hokage since Jiraiya didn't want to take the position. Naruto was being a knuckle head and brave and got angry at the woman for her being the hokage. Shizune tells Tsunade to go easy on him because of the fact of him being a child. Tsunade wins with one pluck to the fore-head.

The night before the decision, Tsunade and Jiraiya were at a bar and Tusnade happened to poison Jiraiya to knock him out so he wouldn't interfere with her answer. Later that day Shizune and Tsunade had an argument on her answer. But Tsunade grew tired of her dis respect and knocked her out. In The morning Shizune woke up late and notices Tsunade already gone so she takes Ton Ton and looks for Jiraiya and Naruto in there hotel and Jiraiya is a little weak from the poison.

They run afterwards in Tsunade's direction with Ton-Ton leading the way by sniffing her out and they finally meet. Jiraiya fights Orochimaru. But, Tsunade fights Kabuto and looses and because of her fear of blood cant fight unless she gets over her fear. Tsunade flies a couple feet backwards and Shizune catches her and spits out 2 poisonous needles out of her mouth and attempting to poison Kabuto. But, Kabuto put his head band down and blocked the needles at contact.

Now, Shizune was healing Tsunade while Naruto was fighting Kabuto.

Shizune's Jutsu

  • Transformation Jutsu: The Transformation Jutsu (変化の術, henge no jutsu) is a basic ninjutsu taught to in the Ninja Academy.

She's only seen performing this jutsu in the anime, but this is one of the basics taught at the academy.
  • Healing Jutsu: The Healing Jutsu (掌仙術, shōsen jutsu) is a medical-ninjustu technique where the user forces chakra to their hand to speed the natural healing to the target and it can use used on one's self. Shizune was taught this technique for Tsunade.
  • Ninja Art - Poison Mist: The Poison Mist (毒霧, dokugiri) jutsu is a technique where the ninja expels a large amount of a poisoned fog from their mouth. It is created using chemicals within the body to create the poison by kneading the chakra into the body. It only becomes poisonous upon contact with the hair and vaporized. Use requires exceptional skill in chemistry, chakra control, and and medical-jutsu
  • Poison Needle Barrage: The Poison Needle Barrage (仕込針弾, shikomishindan) is a technique used by Shizune where she hides a few poison covered needles within her mouth. This hidden weapon is incredibly useful in combat since it catches an opponent completely off guard.
  • Regenerative Healing Jutsu: The Regenerative Healing Jutsu (治活再生の術, chikatsu saisei no jutsu)  is an advanced medical-jutsu.
Anime Only:
  • Shadow Clone Jutsu:
  • Four-Corner Seal Barrier: The Four Corner Seal Barrier (結界四方封陣, kekkai shihō fūjin) is a jutsu created by Tsunade that is designed to seal the Bijuu spirits.
