Reanimation Jutsu in Naruto

Reanimation Jutsu is a Jutsu that uses a corpse as a vessel to forcibly summon the dead back to life. It is seen as a taboo jutsu and is forbidden to use.


This Jutsu was created by Tobirama Senju, the second Hokage but was discovered only later by Orochimaru, one of the Three Legendary Sannin. He imparted his knowledge to his subordinate, Kabuto Yakushi.

During the Fourth Great Shinobi War, this Jutsu was used as the tools to defeat the allied Shinobi forces by Kabuto.


Using this Jutsu would lead to the reanimations doing the summoner’s biddings unless they wished otherwise.

Creation and History of Reanimation Jutsu



The Reanimation Jutsu was created by Tobirama Senju, the Fourth Hokage. He created it but made it a forbidden jutsu as it required sacrifices to be made in order to summon them.



Upon casting the Reanimation Jutsu, the summoned must obey the commands of the caster. However, there are a few exceptions to this. If the summoned is reanimated at their full power, it is possible that they may break this command. Performing certain Genjutsu on the summons can also break them free of this Jutsu.



Hiruzen Sarutobi was once cornered by Orochimaru after he used the reanimation jutsu on the first and second Hokage, upon which he sealed both of their souls in the Grim Reaper.



Reanimation Jutsu was again used in war against the allied shinobi forces. However, Kabuto lost control of some of his reincarnations and the rest were sealed away with the efforts of the forces along with Naruto Uzumaki. Orochimaru then summoned all the Hokage as an ally of the allied shinobi forces and set them free as well, leaving them as independent entities.
