it is the only way to make naruto a senju. a perfect plot for the finals.
Tsunade maybe Naruto grandma
I don't remember why, but I used to have the impression that Sandaime was Minato's father. Possibly Asuma's half brother.. Which would have made Asuma his uncle connecting the wind nature a bit better, and making Konohamaru a cousin.. Always kind of wondered why we never saw Sandaime's wife..
Unless Dan's last name is "Namikaze." It could be possible, then that means Naruto is the great-great-grandson of the First Hokage.
Put it like this:
The 1St founded the village
The 2Nd founded the Konah Police.
The 3Rd knows ever jutsu in the village and save it from Oro
The 4Th save the village from the Nine Tails and Madara
Tsunade held Pain off and brought stability when hte 4Th died.
Naruto saved the village from Pain.
Do the math. Its simple
Naruto's heritage means a lot in terms of how he has grown.
First of all, Naruto is the product of two of the greatest teachers in the manga, Jiraiya and Kakashi. Without these two, Naruto wouldn't be shit, they have literally taught him everything he knows aside from Kage Bushin.
Also, if Minato gave Naruto half the Kyuubi, that's huge. Much of Naruto's stength comes from the Kyuubi, just like much of Sasuke's comes from the Sharigan.
Saying Naruto is great despite his heritage means you obviously haven't been reading the manga.
Also, if Tsuande is Naruto's grandmother, she should be killed. As Naruto's only living relative, she let him go through far too much trauma and deserves to die.
Read the entire post...it is interesting...though heard the most of the theory before in separate posts...it's plausible, plus sandaime strictly forbade everything related to kyuubi to get out...that means naruto's existence from the first moment...that includes everything, parents and grandparents as well...
What I don't understand is the jiraiya and tsunade talk before jiraiya left for pein...that whole convo implies, there were not so certain naruto was minato's son, also I don't imagine tsunade leaving the village while having a son there...tsunade also knew for the name uzumaki naruto, that he was the kyuubi jinchuuriki, so I don't see how tsunade could leave knowing she has a grandson...
The fact that the line of hokage's is kept in the senju clan please don't forget senju is a clan not just a family line...minato being senju is okay, but he can be senju in another family as well...
That's just naruto, no kakashi, no jiraiya, no techs...maybe it is due to kyuubi messing his life up...dealing with kyuubi and any other obstacle with guts it's just naruto....

interesting post! at first, my reaction was like: LOL! this sounds like some random soap opera... isn't it enough that naruto is the son of the yondaime?
but as i read it, it made me think... and it entertained me... somehow it made sense...
however, i agree with the guys immediately above me... it would be better if naruto wouldn't be viewed as the Fourth hokage's son, or the Senju clan descendant... I want Konoha and everyone else to see him as Naruto... just naruto... he himself made a name for himself, without any title or bloodline to attach to him...
very fun post, nevertheless...
Somethings I think and mind you this is just an opinion so you can let me know what you think as well, I always try to find similarities and tendencies throughout the series that are in plain site but not made that obvious and a few have them have come to past as being correct so far in the manga. the thought i have right now is about tsunade being a high possibility of being naruto's actual grandmother. my reason for this is that we have notice that most of the strong people in this series have been related in some shape or form. and interms of the 5th we know she had a thing with Dan"Lovers" stated as a fact by orochimaru. it was never state if they had a child or not, occording to the databook though the 4th and the share genetic traits blood type, hair etc and naruto looking and behaving almost exactly like her little brother. but what is also interesting is J-man's last talk with the 5th that also dropped a few hints as well. for example in chapter 367 page 10
the way they talk about the the successors to the kage, they talk about the 4th in a interesting way and as we already know in efforts to hide certain things people are sometimes give different names i.e last names to hide certain things, and they talk about naruto as being crammed full of power and he saying it felt like teaching the 4th again, and when she mention the resemblance she had a certain look on her face. and on the following page bottom panels j-man says hes never had children but if it were his son and then she compares the 4th to naruto. then on the following page they go into a slight bit more detail about the whole thing, her saying the name of his mother and saying naruto is more like his father, A mother would most likely know allot about her son and who he was messing with i would like to think, then at the bottom right j-ma further states that he has come to see naruto as his own grandson and she has that look on her face again, seeing that in actually the 5th is older than she looks which also makes it all the more plausible, and it also makes you wonder why this conversation happened, and also where we are at now, we obviously know there's something important left for her to do cause we all know that on less someone important has nothing left to contribute to the story line when they are significantly injured they get killed and she is still alive though it maybe in rough shape.....well i have allot more to say but let me know what you think about my thoughts so far i definitely wouldn't mind hearing your opinions
Darklord_NS, I totally agree with your theory, it makes sense. I always wondered why Naruto refers to Tsunade as Granny Tsunade, and the only time someone will call you granny if you are related to them.
