Tsunade is the fifth Hokage,of Konohagakure.she took on the position after the death of her teacher,Hiruzen Sarutobi.she along with Orochimaru and Jiraiya,are recognized as the Legendary Sannnin of Konoha.
Tsunade typically projects a tough demeanor,even when facing great personal difficulty,and rarely compliments or praising people.she readily criticizes others for their faults,such as Naruto for his immaturity,though her habits are rarely any better.on occasion,though,Tsunade shows sympathy for others consoling shikamaru that,while he failed his mission to return Sasuke to Konoha,all of his team-mates survived.this is also shown when she worked hard in order to help heal Rock Lee,so that he might continue to be a ninja.she also allowed herself to cry when she learned of Jiraiya`s death,though not in public.
When first introduced,Tsunade is cynical of anyone with dreams,especially those who want to become Hokage.after meeting Naruto she realizes that this cynicism is insulting to the memories of Dan and Nawaki.she has a change of heart,puts her faith in Naruto,and takes on the mantle of Hokage herself,carrying on the dreams of Dan and Nawaki.as Hokage,Tsunade has shown the same level of loyalty to the village that previous Hokage held;during the invasion of Pain,she released all of her chakra in order to save the lives of hundreds of people within Konoha,at great personal risk.Tsunade also has a great deal of faith in the next generation,and sees the potential that Naruto and the rest of the Konoha 11 hold.
Tsunade is also a compulsive gambler,who has the unfortunate disadvantage of having trouble luck.as a result,she has been elevated to a comical status as "The Legendary Sucker" because of the gross profits others have made off her missfortune and gambling addiction.in the rare instances that Tsunade hits a winning streak,she believes it to be a bad omen,and bad things do tend to happen to her or her comrades afterwards.the symbol on the back of her coat,means "Gamble",or "Wager" as a gambling is one of her favourite pastimes.
In life-threatening or important situations that involve someone she cares in danger,she tends to anger against people who disagree with her plan,such as the restrictions the Konoha elders put on Naruto,or the argument on whether Naruto or killer bee should participate in the forth great shinobi world war,even calling Gaara a "Little Punk" once disagreed by.
