Hot take but hiruzen gets way too much hate. Did he fuck up? Absolutely but it’s not like there’s much he could’ve done better in his position

  1. I think ppl underestimate how long he was in power, he was Hokage for 30+ years. The fact that he only had handful of major screw-ups in that time is amazing really.

    Tsunade was only Hokage for about 5+ years and the whole village got destroyed in that time frame.

  2. Hiruzen was one of the best Hokage.
    People focus on Hiruzen’s mistakes, but don’t take into account Hiruzen’s reign assessement.
    Hiruzen became the Third Hokage in the midst of the 1st Great Shinobi War, and lost his title when he stopped the Konoha Crush.
    Under Hiruzen’s reign, Konoha faced the end of the 1st Great Shinobi War, and the 2nd and 3rd Great Shinobi wars while remaining functionnal all along.
    Hiruzen made Konoha a proper place for many generations of shinobi to grow up and become the heir of the Will of Fire. When Tsunade became the 5th Hokage, she already had a functionnal village with a well organized army and well made Genin teams. She just continued Hiruzen’s work.
    Hiruzen’s main role, was to perpetuate Hashirama’s and Tobirama’s building, and he did well in this regard.
    You can argue “but Hiruzen messed up with Danzo and Orochimaru!”, no matter, if you look at Hiruzen’s global assessement these mistakes didn’t affect the global outcome of his reign, which is a functionnal village with patriotic people all carrying the Will of Fire like Hashirama and Tobirama wanted to.
    There is a reason Itachi came back in Konoha AFTER Hiruzen’s death, he knew under Hiruzen, Sasuke was safe. He didn’t need to show up during Hiruzen’s reign because he knew Hiruzen was someone truthful.
    People bash Hiruzen for Naruto’s treatment, but even in Boruto, Naruto acknowledge how lucky he was as a jinchuriki under Hiruzen. Naruto never hated Hiruzen, it’s even the contrary, he respected a lot Hiruzen and wanted to punch drunken Tsunade because she disrespected Hiruzen’s sacrifice.

  3. The hiruzen hate is kinda deserved and not cos he didnt take care of naruto, its cos he allowed the uchiha massacre to happen. Under his nose, danzo took shisuis eye and ordered itachi to kill the clan and bro didnt even do anything, whos the hokage here?
