The 3rd databook was officially released in Japan on September 4th. This is a thread to talk about all the various stats, bios, names, and other character information that we will receive from the book. For many characters, this book will flesh out their background stories and finally answer a number of questions.

Kishimoto does have a hand in writing the databooks so they are considered official canon.

The new data book is called 者の書 ~ The People's Scroll. And here is the cover page:


The book will include data on 120 shinobi and 110 jutsus (which includes Kirin, Rasenshuriken, and whatever Kakashi's MS jutsu is ). The book is also 356 pages long, so do not expect any translations to come out any time until October at the earliest.
_________________

Be aware that the stats are only a vague referential for the character, they aren't meant to be compared between different characters and they don't take things like Bloodline, CS, Bijuu, etc. into account. Differently speaking they are mostly worthless by themselves (and trying to add them up is completely so). They are only meant to give an idea of the characters's strong and weak points.
Remember as well that in those book superlatives are the rules and not the exception.

Oreo then brought her to Neverland, where she served him, but only as a means to get closer to Sasuke. No mention of what she did to Sasuke that one time that Suigetsu talked about.

From - Nihongaeri...

Hidan

Hidan hails from Yugakure (the Village Hidden Amongst Hot Springs), the village purported to have forgotten war.
Even as the Great Wars disappeared from the world and the Hidden Villages were scaled back as military powers, those with an abundance of nature and tourist resources gained positive position in the new times. Hidan, who had lived as a shinobi constantly starved for strife, grew frustrated and discontent with this new pacifism, eventually directing his feelings at the village itself.
It was inevitable that the newly found religion of Jashin would set its eyes on him.
Thou shalt massacre thy neighboor.
The religion's teachings would prove be abundant with elements that affirmed Hidan's own desires.

Height - 177.1 cm
Weight - 58.8 kg

Kakuzu -

Kakuzu was given the mission to assassinate the Hokage, but was defeated by the Mokuton jutsu. The next sentence says something like he returned to his village barely alive. Apparently the forbidden jutsu Kakuzu used to get the hearts or whatever is called "Jiongu". The kanji split up mean something like "Earth Hatred Fear"

All that awaited him (when he returned from his mission to kill the Hokage) was the dishonor of failing his mission and heavy punishment. Feeling intense hatred for village's cruel deeds after he risked his life for it (or something along those lines), he broke out of prison.

After that is where he learns the forbidden jutsu and kills the village leaders. jutsu and kills the village leaders.

Age 91

Kishimoto - Why the Kyuubi's seal is weakening, why Naruto can only go up to 4 tails in his transformation, what Karin did to Sasuke in the past, whether Kushina is still alive or not, and how Kakashi gained the Mangekyou Sharingan will all be revealed in the manga itself.


If Kishimoto was a girl he'd want a boyfriend like Shikamaru



Not to sure about this one, it seems that Madara's brother was named Izuna and that the downfall of their clan has to do with the loss of Madara's eyesight and that decendents would fight over blindness.


The 4 Tailed old man was a traveller and belonged to no villages.



Madara likes abugare, and dislikes roe-dattebayo


Yamato

Graduated Academy age 6
Promoted to Chuunin age 6
Edit: Also from Mangahelpers
Quote:

C. Chiyo was 73 years old, and not 150 as previously speculated (by me).

D. Kakuzu was 91 years old, which makes him the oldest with perhaps the exception of Madara, who's age is not revealed.

E. Madara's brother was named Izuna, and he died in battle, after he'd given up his eyes. Why they'd send a blind man into battle is beyond me.

F.The "three great doujutsu" are confirmed to be "Sharingan", "Byakugan" and "Rinnegan." The only confirmed power of Rinnegan is to allow a person to use all five elements.

G. Kishimoto answers the question of what would happen if a Hyuuga and an Uchiha had a kid in a humorous tone: one of the kid's eye's would be Sharingan, the other Byakugan.

H. Deidara was 19 years old. Heh! Pretty young.

I. Kakashi's Mangekyou Jutsu is called "Kamui" (Power of the Gods).

J. Design wise, Pain's beads are meant to evoque "self infliction" of pain.

K. Konan's wearing a pretty sexy gettup under that Akatsuki cloak. It's kinda like Karin's outfit, except strapless, and partially reveals her outter bossom. She's got a pierced belly buttom.

L. Gaara's lost Shukaku, but not his use of sand and his trademark eyes.

The fact that the second Hokage's name is Tobimaru will undoubtedly spawn much discussion for the Tobi = Madara = Obito fanatacism.

Yugito track record is very impressive , and she is about 9 years older than I previously though.

Kamui is a perfect title for Kakashi's MS ability, though I am guessing that Kishimoto is using it more as an X referrence, rather than an Ainu referrence .

More important than anything else, Pein is clearly written in romanji as Pain. It is official, his/their name is Pain not Pein. Damn...

Ma Toad is called Shima.

Here is some of the Q&A, translated by tora-chan.

Spoiler for Q and A:


And here is some of what we truly want :



And, of course, here are some of the unknown jutsus (also from tora-chan) (I added the emphasis to specific jutsus that I was interested in):

In the first chapters with Karin, Suigetsu just mentioned once he knew what Karin had done to Sasuke.
Although words circulated it was a mistranslation and that he only said he knew she had liked Sasuke for a long time. I guess the first translation was correct after all.

My hope that Kishi will dive back into Naruto's familly has just been rekindled.

Makes some amount of sense. Still, one expects those techniques to be a hellalot weaker now that Shukaku is gone, and this still doesn't answer whether he still has his Shield of Sand, which was controlled by Shukaku.

Rinnegan lost an element. In the manga, it was 6 elements. (unless it was corrected in a Tankoubon)

I would like to see the exact sentence now. Is it impossible to master the 5 elements without the Rinnegan now ? What about Sarutobi who was supposed to master all the normal jutsus of the village ? Without the 5 elements, it's impossible.

Also, I am afraid the Second Hokage will remain the fodder hokage forever. If his name was revealed here, I guess he won't have any part to play in the plot besides being suspicious of the Uchihas.

In the picture showing the attributes of characters pre and post time skip, could someone tell me which ones are which, starting from the top and working clockwise, or something like that?

And by looking at the attributes, it seems Naruto is the least improved, big surprise there

Be wary of comparaing the stats. Kishimoto uses the stats to define the characters abilities in specific fields, but one characters 3.5 is not necessarily equal to another character 3.5. These numbers represent character emphasis, specialty, and ability, not necessarily means of comparisson. Added to that, bloodline abilities, jinchuuriki abilities, nature energy abilities, etc. are not found in these stats.

Starting from the top, going clockwise:
-Ninjutsu
-Taijutsu
-Genjutsu
-Intelligence
-(Physical) Strength
-Speed
-Stamina
-Seals (speed of hand-seals)
Also, the charas in the lower left are: Neji, Shikamaru, Gaara, Rock Lee.

Naruto: Nin 4.0 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 2.0 - Int 3.0 - Str 3.5 - Spe 3.5 - Sta 5.0 - Seal 1.5
Sasuke: Nin 5.0 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 4.0 - Int 3.5 - Str 3.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 4.0
Sakura: Nin 3.0 - Tai 3.0 - Gen 3.5 - Int 4.0 - Str 3.0 - Spe 3.0 - Sta 2.5 - Seal 4.0
---
Shikamaru: Nin 3.5 - Tai 2.0 - Gen 3.0 - Int 5.0 - Str 2.0 - Spe 2.5 - Sta 3.0 - Seal 3.0
Rock Lee: Nin 0.0 - Tai 5.0 - Gen 1.0 - Int 2.0 - Str 4.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 1.0
Neji: Nin 4.0 - Tai 4.5 - Gen 2.0 - Int 3.0 - Str 2.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 3.0
Gaara: Nin 5.0 - Tai 2.0 - Gen 3.5 - Int 4.0 - Str 2.5 - Spe 3.0 - Sta 5.0 - Seal 4.0

Ok, well, I'll be kind enough to type the numbers XD; But only of the newest stats..

Naruto: Nin 4.0 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 2.0 - Int 3.0 - Str 3.5 - Spe 3.5 - Sta 5.0 - Seal 1.5
Sasuke: Nin 5.0 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 4.0 - Int 3.5 - Str 3.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 4.0
Sakura: Nin 3.0 - Tai 3.0 - Gen 3.5 - Int 4.0 - Str 3.0 - Spe 3.0 - Sta 2.5 - Seal 4.0
Shikamaru: Nin 3.5 - Tai 2.0 - Gen 3.0 - Int 5.0 - Str 2.0 - Spe 2.5 - Sta 3.0 - Seal 3.0
Rock Lee: Nin 0.0 - Tai 5.0 - Gen 1.0 - Int 2.0 - Str 4.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 1.0
Neji: Nin 4.0 - Tai 4.5 - Gen 2.0 - Int 3.0 - Str 2.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 3.0
Gaara: Nin 5.0 - Tai 2.0 - Gen 3.5 - Int 4.0 - Str 2.5 - Spe 3.0 - Sta 5.0 - Seal 4.0
Thanks James, you're awesome. I'm surprised that Naruto and Sasuke have the same taijutsu level, and that Naruto's and Neji's intelligence is the same, that seems almost insulting to Neji. Maybe Naruto is smarter than he acts.

Edit: I missed your first line describing the numbers, it's strange that the numbers can't be compared to other characters. Ehh, oh well.

Well, think of the stats more as a measure of how each character fights (or the fields of shinobidom that the character emphasizes in themself).

Take Sasuke for example (Sasuke: Nin 5.0 - Tai 3.5 - Gen 4.0 - Int 3.5 - Str 3.5 - Spe 4.5 - Sta 3.5 - Seal 4.0). Sasuke highest stat is his ninjutsu, and as we have seen in his fights, he is primarily a ninjutsu user. After that, his highest abilities are his speed and his hand-seal abilities, which also make sense considering that he is a ninjutsu specialist, and then Genjutsu comes after all of these since Sasuke learned the techniques to fight his. After that come the other scores which have more or less stayed the same from Part I to Part II. The stats reflect how the person fights in a battle, not necessarily how they stack up against other characters.

As to the intelligence rating, I assume that the various bloodline wielders will have a slightly lower (than expected) intelligence due to the fact that they have a bloodline tool that greatly helps them. Sasuke need not make truly creative descions due to the fact that his eyes will make the fights easier for him (this is a rough analysis of his bloodline, not to be taken too literally).

OMG! Madara is born the day before Christmas! Lucky bum...

@James since when did Sakura and Gaara become smarter than Neji and Sasuke, cos even though they have kekkei genkei it takes the skill and smarts to use it in battle, like give an idiot like Naruto he would never think of using the colour of chakra to tell where the bombs are. And Sakura is observant but even without using their kekkei genkei so are Sasuke and Neji.

Again, it is not about actual intelligence between the various characters (though, in Sakura's case she has always been considered the most intelligent of the trio), it is about how they use the intelligence in battle or how much they value the use of intelligence. Kishimoto claims that Sakura and Gaara use their brain more than Sasuke or Neji.

For instance, look at the Sasuke v Deidara battle. Without the Sharingan to see the chakra surrounding him, and inside of him, Sasuke would have been completely destroyed with relative ease. So, Sasuke did not use much actual intelligence in the battle, rather he used his bloodline ability and his natural affinity to win the fight (I fully admit that most battles in Naruto follow a similar route in which character's natural fighting abilities matter more than actual intelligence (case and point, the Naruto v Kakuzu fight). Many of Sasuke's battles follow a similar routine (especially his most recent battle ).

Then again, Sakura has only had one fight in Part II, and she, more than anything, pounded shit until it didn't move anymore (Chiyo was the genius of that group).

---

I really like this poll:

Which shinobi would you like as your Older Brother?:
1) Itachi Uchiha - 158 votes
2) Deidara - 116 votes
3) Naruto Uzumaki - 93 votes
4) Neji Hyuuga - 78 votes
5) Sasuke Uchiha - 50 votes
6) Shikamaru Nara - 31 votes
7) Gaara - 30 votes
8) Kakashi Hatake - 29 votes
9) Sai - 24 votes
10) Sasori - 16 votes

You got to love that Itachi is now the ideal older brother .
