was one of Konohagakure's Sannin
. Famed as a hermit and pervert of stupendous skill, Jiraiya traveled the world in search of knowledge that would help his friends, the various novels he wrote, and, posthumously, the world in its entirety – knowledge that would be passed on to his godson and final student, Naruto Uzumaki
. After he graduated from Konoha's Ninja Academy, Jiraiya was teamed with Orochimaru and Tsunade under the leadership of Hiruzen Sarutobi
. Jiraiya at some point discovered Mount Myōboku
, the residence of the toads where Fukasaku trained Jiraiya in their ways, most prominently senjutsu.
While he was at Mount Myōboku, the Great Toad Sage made a prediction about Jiraiya: that he would travel the world and during that time meet the Child of the Prophecy
, a student who would grow up to either save or destroy the world depending upon how Jiraiya taught them. Jiraiya started to suspect that one student, Minato Namikaze
, might be the Child of the Prophecy because of his natural genius. Although their team under Hiruzen's leadership had disbanded, Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade continued fighting together during the Second Shinobi World War where they became known as the "Legendary Sannin"
. Some time later, Jiraiya, guilty for his involvement in the war, decided to stay in Ame for a time in order to look after three orphans
, Konan, Yahiko and Nagato, who possessed the Rinnegan, once used by the Sage of the Six Paths to save the world. Jiraiya decided that Nagato was the Child of the Prophecy, and as such agreed to teach the orphans ninjutsu so that he might guide Nagato towards the world's salvation. After three years of training the orphans, Jiraiya decided they were ready to forge out on their own and he returned to Konoha. Minato decided to name his and Kushina Uzumaki's then-unborn son "Naruto" after the main character of one of Jiraiya's books
, hoping that their Naruto would be just as determined as the character (and thus its author). Jiraiya tried to convince them not to since that would make him Naruto's godfather, but Minato and Kushina insisted this was a good thing. After Minato's death and years later, Jiraiya later came to train Naruto
, giving him many skills to help save the world with.
