When Does Naruto Learn Sage Mode? – Everything We Know


In this article, I’ll go through all the instances where Naruto enters Sage Mode and rate them against each other as to when he learned the jutsu.

Naruto is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto. The plot tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, an adolescent ninja who constantly searches for recognition and aspires to become a Hokage, the ninja in his village that is acknowledged as the leader and the strongest of all. The series is based on a one-shot comic by Kishimoto that was published in the August 1997 issue of Akamaru Jump.

Naruto was adapted into an anime television series produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex, which broadcast 220 episodes in Japan from 2002 to 2007; that series concluded with a sequel titled Naruto: Shippuden (Naruto Hurricane Chronicles). Naruto: Shippuden is still airing since February 15, 2007. Additionally, the manga was adapted into nine anime films; the first three installments were re-edited into a single film, while the remaining six were released as part of an annual movie festival titled “Naruto Uzumaki Cinema Festival”.

When Does Naruto Learn Sage Mode?

To qualify for this list, it has to be within Part II (Shippuuden) of the anime and manga. The reason for that is that in Episode 2 of Shippuuden, it is revealed that Naruto gathered Natural Energy to enter Sage Mode when he fought against Pain in the Valley of the End. That fight happened in Part I (Original Series), therefore Naruto must have learned Sage Mode in-between Parts I and II.

Jutsu (and its respective hand seals) listed with “*” can be used by someone other than the user or created by someone other than the user.

When Does Naruto Learn Sage Mode?

1) Sage Mode – This is Naruto’s first instance of entering Sage Mode. Natural Energy has gathered automatically, therefore he did not learn it during this fight.

2) Water Release: Exploding Water Colliding Wave* – As you may have noticed, there are no other instances where Naruto needs to use the Water Release: Exploding Water Colliding Wave. In this instance, he used it as a medium to enter Sage Mode.

3) Wind Release: Rasenshuriken* – Naruto needed both hands free in order to maintain the technique, therefore he couldn’t have been using Natural Energy at the same time.

There are no other known instances of Naruto entering Sage Mode. However, there are still some instances where Naruto could have used the ability without actually doing so.

1) Summoning Technique – When summoning Gamabunta at the Valley of the End, there is a brief shot of his feet with light surrounding them. This may or may not be related to Sage Mode.

2) Summoning Technique – When Naruto summons Gamahiro in the fight against Pain, there is a quick shot of his feet with light surrounding them after he lands. This may or may not be related to Sage Mode.

3) Shadow Clone Jutsu* – There is no official instance where Naruto uses either the Shadow Clone Jutsu or the Shadow Clone’s Natural Energy to enter Sage Mode. However, in a Q&A session in volume 40, Kishimoto-sensei was asked a question about this and answered accordingly.
