The hokages

I have a feeling that the second hokage is worthless :P
Lemme show u guys my point

First hokage = Finder of the konoha village, ended a whole century of war or something

Second hokage = We don't know a thing about him.

Third hokage = Known for knowing all the jutsus and is called a professor

Fourth hokage = Do i even need to say something about him? Sealed the nine-tails, known as a genius bla bla bla.

Why isn't there any background story of the second hokage. I want to know more about him. Dont u guys wanna know more? Anybody who knows more?

wasn't the 2nd hokages one of the two hokages orochimaru summoned? If he was worthless he wouldn't have been summoned with the first, and the fact that he is hokage means he was not worthless. I bet the weakest hokage so far is the 5th

yes he is, and since he's the 2nd Hokage, he can't be useless, otherwise he would't be well..the 2nd Hokage

The first presumably died quite young hence the 2nd took over.

Thinking about my post on the age of Konoha in the -creation of konoha thread-I'd have to deduct that both the brothers were not Hokage for a long time. Probaly not even 10 years each...

I think that one is enough right there..

But yes, he pretty much created a small river with that attack.. just like Jiraiya created a small swamp with his, although the differences between the two are.. debatable..

The fact that he was a Hokage should be enough to tell you that he wasn't useless. They wouldn't just pick a Hokage for the hell of it, he had to of been amazing.

Also, in the Hokages and Orochimaru vs. Sandaime fight, Nidaime used a huge water element jutsu in a place with no water, proving his ability to use jutsus and his chakra.

I think he was referring to them as brothers in the sense that they were his comrades.

I mean, if the 1st and 2nd were brothers, you think they would have mentioned it in relation to Tsunade. All they said was that the 1st was her grandfather.

Why would they say; "She got that pendant from her grandfather the first Hokage, oh and the 2nd was her uncle"

dunn make sense

Well I never knew they were brothers, and it certainly doesnít say anything like that in the translation I have either.
Could you maybe post some proof?
And I always thought that it was both of them who started Konoha, and both of them were involved in the whole war thing.
In fact in the flash-back itís both of them who are standing with Saratobi* maybe they both ruled as Hokage at the same time, though that is quite unlikely.
And someone said about the 2ndís water jutsu that it was like a small river More like a tidal wave.

I have a feeling that they weren't actually brothers... The 1st had a genetic Super-strength, that he passed on to Tsunade. Its unlikely that the 2nd had it as well. Sarutobi called them brothers but i agree with Genui Killua that it was just a term of endearment.

Also, when Jiraiya was telling Naruto why Tsunade was the most fitting to become Hokage, he mentioned only the 1st as her grandfather. Now if you were trying to impress someone with Tsunade's lineage, and she had two hokages as grandparents, why would you only mention one of them?

Also, if the 2nd can create tidal waves, walls of water, and ice missiles in a place without water... just think of what he could do if he were actually near a large body of water.

volume 14 chptr 118 pg 3 you will see that the 3rd called them brothers


she wouldnt have two people as grandparents. she just the granddaughter of the 1st. its the same as if your grandparents did great things and their siblings did too who you add oh well there brother was great just like them. it isnt important in that convertsation who are all in her family tree. just saying she is the granddaughter of the 1st is enough information to explain why she is worthy. you dont need to explain her family history to naruto who probly doesnt care less who she is related to.

also you cant say the 5th got her super strength from her grandfather because he didnt show any signs of being super strong.

When the 1st and 2nd Hokage appear from their coffins, the 3rd Hokage refers to them as "御兄弟お二人" (gokyoudai o futari), which means two siblings, or in this case "two brothers".

Also, in the Official Character Book, the 2nd Hokage is stated as the "初代の実弟" (Shodai no jittei) or biological younger brother of the Founder (1st Hokage).

That would be really incredible then, three hokages out of five coming from the same family.
