Tobirama was a member of the Senju clan along with his brother Hashirama who was the leader
of the clan. Decades before the start of the series,
Hashirama struck a peace treaty with Madara Uchiha and together the two clans created Konohagakure. When Hashirama, who was appointed the First Hokage died, Tobirama was
appointed as the Second Hokage. During his reign
he was primarily responsible for establishing
Konoha's organisational system. He did this by
setting up various organisations such as the Academy, the ANBU, the Chūnin Exams and the Konoha Military Police Force,[1] the latter of which he created as a sign of trust towards the Uchiha clan who made up the majority of that organisation. However, according to Madara, the
Police Force was actually established to distance
the Uchiha from the government of the village
and place the clan under a tight surveillance by
the ANBU. At some point during his tenure, he and the Second Raikage met to form a formal alliance between Kumogakure and Konohagakure, however, Kinkaku and Ginkaku, Kumo's Gold and Silver Brothers attempted a coup d’état against the Second Raikage and left Tobirama near death in their surprise attack. He also trained a three-man team of his own, Team Tobirama, which consisted of Hiruzen Sarutobi, Homura Mitokado, and Koharu Utatane. During a mission in the First Shinobi World War , on which Team Tobirama performed with Danzō Shimura, Kagami Uchiha and Torifu Akimichi, they found themselves surrounded by twenty elite
Cloud ninja, known as the Kinkaku Force. Tobirama then realized that the only way any of
them could escape alive was for one of them to
be a decoy and sacrifice themselves; therefore
having faith that he had trained his students well,
he chose to sacrifice himself after he selected his
prized student Hiruzen for the position of Third Hokage. Homura and Koharu would later become
Hiruzen's advisers. After giving the title of
Hokage to Hiruzen, Tobirama went off to fight the
enemies where he died a noble death.

From what has been seen of Tobirama, he had
pride in his abilities involving water release techniques. He also had a sense of humour, even
under stressful situations. Like his brother,
Tobirama felt a great deal of loyalty to the village,
and placed its well-being above his own.
Tobirama was also strong-spirited, and

Tobirama was characterized by his white shaggy
hair, red eyes and three red streaks under his
eyes and on his chin. His outfit consisted of blue
armour and a forehead protector which was modelled to resemble a face guard. The outfit
underneath his armour, had a white fur collar.
Outside of his shinobi outfit Tobirama wore a
simple blue shirt kimono held closed by a pale
yellow sash and pants with mesh armour
underneath, completed with a bracelet of sorts on his let hand.

According to a young Danzō, Tobirama was the most powerful shinobi in Konoha during his time.
Tobirama was also the creator of the Summoning: Impure World Resurrection technique; however, shortly after its creation he
labelled it as a Kinjutsu and never mastered it himself. Also, by simply touching the ground
with his index finger, Tobirama could detect the presence and number of enemy shinobi.[2] According to Minato, Tobirama was also very skilled in Space–Time Ninjutsu.

Nature Transformation Edit Tobirama was primarily known for his mastery
of Water Release techniques, being able to make use of powerful water-style jutsu in areas where
there were no bodies of water, making him
known to be the greatest water manipulator that ever existed.[4] He could manipulate it to form projectiles or tentacles, and could even perform
the most complex of water-style techniques with only one hand seal. He was also able to use the water molecules in the atmosphere to cast high
level water techniques such as the Water Release: Water Shockwave technique.

Swordsmanship and Physical Ability Edit In the anime, it was said that he wielded the Sword of the Thunder God, a blade with electrical abilities, and was said to have mastered its use
despite the lethality. He is also shown to have
great physical prowess and a considerable
amount of skill in the area of taijutsu, as well as
good teamwork with his elder brother, Hashirama Senju.
