He was a member of the Root organization under the leadership of Danzō and later defected from the village after being discovered doing experiments on the villagers, as well as being a former member of Akatsuki. He was one of the main antagonists of the series until his death at the hands of Sasuke Uchiha. During the Fourth Shinobi World War he was revived by his pupil. In this article, we are going to tell you all you need to know about Orochimaru in Boruto, including, but not limited to, his age and several other intriguing facts we have gathered for you.
How old is Orochimaru in Boruto?
Orochimaru was born on October 27 and was 50/51 years old in Part I of the manga, and 54 in Part II of the manga. If we consider the chronology of Boruto, it would mean that Orochimaru is in his late 60s in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
Is Orochimaru a girl or a boy?
It has been thought for years that Orochimaru is actually male; this made absolute sense during the Naruto era, although fans have begun to suspect something even then. He was voiced by male actors and by all standards, he looked more like a man than a woman. Yet, in Boruto: Naruto Next Generation Orochimaru finally confirmed that he did not have a gender, i.e., that he was neither male nor female.
Is Orochimaru immortal and can he regenerate?
In his quest to gain immortality, Orochimaru has made a number of modifications to his body, causing his natural form to take on the appearance of a giant white snake made up of many smaller white snakes. This form has the advantage that it allows him to stretch any part of his body to great lengths, regenerate any wounds inflicted on him and use the snakes for his attacks and if Orochimaru is cut to pieces, the body simply reforms, making him very difficult to kill.
Also, the blood released by killing snakes is poisonous, evaporating into the air and causing paralysis to anyone who has breathed it. The main use of Living Corpse Reincarnation is to transfer his soul to another body and extend his life indefinitely. To use this jutsu, Orochimaru steps out of his old body, revealing his true form.
Once he has done this, he swallows the new body and transports it to a dimension within himself where he absorbs it, allowing him to take over his body, Orochimaru can only use this jutsu once every three years. , as this is the time when your body begins to reject it and forces it to find a new host. Although he could leave his body behind him, the souls of those whose bodies he has taken always remain within Orochimaru’s subconscious.
After taking over another body, Orochimaru modifies it to suit his use of snakes, in order to increase his survival abilities, such as stretching and bending his body, reconnecting his body after being cut, and the shedding of his skin to heal injuries. Therefore, even if Orochimaru cannot transfer the bodies, he can easily heal and dodge the attacks, which makes him virtually immortal.
Orochimaru also alters the face of his host body to resemble his original form. His ultimate method for his immortality would be his own Cursed Seals. Because each cursed seal mixes with Orochimaru’s chakra, which is part of his consciousness, it inhabits the seal, allowing Orochimaru to retain some consciousness, even if his original body is destroyed or sealed.
By doing this, Orochimaru can interact with the host of him and share his senses. By combining a piece of his DNA with a person who has one of his cursed seals and using the Evil Release Method, Orochimaru can be fully resurrected any number of times, as long as there are enough seals and pieces of his DNA.
What is Orochimaru’s true form?
Orochimaru’s trait and mark is his affinity with snakes which, in addition to affecting his appearance and the composition of his true form, and granting him the ability to extend his limbs to abnormal lengths and take on the traits of snakes during battle, led him to to learn a number of techniques related to snakes, including learning Sage Mode.
His techniques related to snakes have been referred to as White Serpent Power. One of these is the ability to summon giant snakes to fight alongside him in battle, made possible by the summoning contract tattooed on his arm. His signature was summoning Manda, a colossal serpent that was described as the largest in the world, capable of fighting huge creatures.
With the Hidden Shadow Serpent Hands, Orochimaru could instantly summon serpents from his sleeves and mouth to attack opponents, resulting in a large number of poisonous stings. A stronger variation of this technique was the Hidden Hands of Many Shadow Serpents, in which the summoned serpents noticeably grow in number and size. He took the use of his snakes to such an extent that he developed a possession jutsu with which he can control different people thanks to the white snakes he inserts into his bodies.
Another use for snakes came in the form of his weapon, the Kusanagi Sword, the Kusanagi of Japanese legend. The sword is kept inside the mouth of a snake, inside its own throat. He was able to extend it as far as possible to attack enemies that are far away, control it from a distance, and if the sword moved away, it could return to him in the form of a snake.
Although he was able to wield the sword normally with great skill, it was not uncommon for him to use it without removing it from his mouth. He was also able to wield numerous Kusanagi Blades, like blades that sprout from the mouths of the snakes he summoned. His main technique is the Eight-Headed Serpent technique, which allows him to transform into a huge eight-headed white snake larger than the massive Manda, another reference to Japanese myth.
What are Orochimaru’s powers and abilities?
Being one of the Sannin, as well as a former member of the S-rank criminal organization, Akatsuki, Orochimaru is an extremely powerful ninja. His powers, which can easily be considered Kage-level, were so great that at the time of the Konoha invasion, the Third Hokage feared that no one in the village would be able to defeat him or fight on an equal footing with him.
Even Kakashi, one of Konoha’s best ninja, was scared and awe when they came face to face during the Chūnin Exams, and he himself admitted that he wouldn’t even stand a chance against his power, stating that he had become crazy to try to face it. As one of the Sannin, Orochimaru made a name for himself and used to be the pride of all of Konoha.
His teacher, Hiruzen Sarutobi, who was considered a Shinobi God, once said of him: “Even with my intelligence, I cannot compete with such talent.” this being only one of the reasons why he used to be called a genius since his childhood. Orochimaru was considered by his master to be extremely dangerous, possessing overwhelming power.
Well in Hiruzen’s considerations before leaving Konoha, Orochimaru already had the power to defeat a small country by himself. He was able to hold a fight with Four-Tailed Naruto Uzumaki in the second part while his body was in a weakened state, and despite the danger imposed, he found the battle highly entertaining.
Even then, his body gave way and he lamented that he couldn’t complete the battle. Among the Sannin, he was the one who originally stood out for his individual ability. Because he is rarely shown in the fight, he showed a limited amount of techniques, though it stands to reason that in his efforts to learn all the jutsus in existence, his arsenal of skills would have likely made him one of the few greatest ninjas.
He was even able to kill Gaara’s father, the Fourth Kazekage. He has vast knowledge in all forms of Jutsu. His fighting style is very fluid and he is nearly invulnerable to most conventional techniques, even being impaled, maimed, or split in half. He even survived a direct hit from Tsunade’s monstrous super-strength and all he did was damage the skin that made up his mask.
He has shown that even though he was paralyzed with the Reaper Death Seal Technique, he could still use ninjutsu without using Hand Seals. Orochimaru was a highly sought after character, many high level shinobi were looking for him to assassinate him and the mere fact of having killed him made Sasuke someone of great prestige, since not any shinobi could have achieved that feat, even Kisame, one of the more powerful Akatsuki, said that it was something impressive and that Itachi should be proud of his little brother.
But later on, Sasuke admitted that he was only able to pull it off because Orochimaru was weak. He was also praised by Hashirama Senju, telling Hiruzen that he had trained a very skilled shinobi. Orochimaru, in his desire to learn all the jutsus in the world and be the greatest ninja, gained great knowledge on various techniques, ranging from simple offensive techniques, which however become deadly when performed by him, to the most high classification techniques, or more complicated.
As for defensive techniques, Orochimaru uses both Summoning: Rashōmon and Summoning: Triple Rashōmon, in which he summons a variable number of large demon gates that are capable of withstanding even the most intense forms of damage. If necessary, he can also place the Five Elemental Seal on an opponent, sealing their access to chakra and thus rendering them useless in battle.
Orochimaru can summon a snake from his mouth, which draws a sword called Kusanagi. This sword has several special characteristics, such as the ability to damage the diamond, as well as levitate and lengthen for hundreds of meters, being able to attack from very long distances.
Orochimaru has a great mastery of the sword, allowing him to attack his opponents without taking it out of his mouth and being able to control it even if he does not have it in his hands, being able to pierce through his opponents without them noticing. Conducting research on the Jūgo Clan, Orochimaru eventually tracked down the source of his power: Ryūchi Cave.
It is assumed that here he was trained by the White Serpent Sage in Senjutsu and attempted to learn how to use Sage Mode. However, he was unable to use this power to its full potential due to the fragility of his host’s organs, making him an unviable option for battle. Likewise, he has enough knowledge to undo the Sage Mode transformation in other people and absorb the Senjutsu chakra within them, as seen with Kabuto.
