Due to the long life he had lived, Hiruzen served
as a source of wisdom for much of the series,
passing on the things he had learned to the next
generation. As Hokage, he had also acquired a
habit of attempting to end things peacefully, and
did what he could to avoid bloodshed amongst his allies and his enemies. At the series' start,
Hiruzen was one of the few people who saw
Naruto as more than the container of the Nine-
Tails, and, as such, became someone that Naruto
truly admired, even thinking of Hiruzen as a

According to Kakashi Hatake, Hiruzen loved his students deeply, including Orochimaru, no matter how far he had fallen.[5] This was proven when he could not bring himself to kill his prized
student ten years before his (Hiruzen's) death,
despite Orochimaru being discovered to be
conducting highly illegal experiments that
resulted in the death of many innocent, and that
letting him live would lead to more tragedies. When Hiruzen died, he hoped that he and
Orochimaru would one day reunite in the
afterlife, as master and student.

Despite his standing as Hokage, he seemed to
have had some sense of lecherousness in him, as
he spent much of his free time talking to young
girls. When Jiraiya was still his student, he
offered to help Jiraiya test the technique that
would allow the user to spy on naked women unnoticed. Even Jiraiya, in this instance, noted his
sensei's perverted qualities. He also fell victim to
Naruto's Sexy Technique on more than one occasion, fainting after he saw it. He also made it a hobby to talk with young girls.

Hiruzen is one of two known Kage to always wear the official Kage uniform, the other being
the Fourth Raikage. Since his time training Jiraiya, Tsunade, and Orochimaru, he has had a small
goatee and short spiked hair, both being dark
brown. He also has three lines running vertically
under each eye, though when he was younger
he only had one under each eye. Although an old
man, age has not taken much of a toll on his appearance, as it has on his skills, as it would
only appear to have given him some grey hair,
several wrinkles, and very few liver-spots. With
age it would seem that he has also taken on
smoking a pipe. When in combat he wears a
black jumpsuit with grey shoulder armour, a gauntlet on his right arm, a Leaf forehead
protector bandanna with long straps and a ninja
helmet which he wears under it. The kanji for
"Third Hokage" is inscribed on the back of this
outfit, although at the time of the Nine-Tails'
attack when he retired the post, it merely had the kanji for "fire" (火, hi). He also has two shuriken holsters strapped to either side of his back.
