Jiraiya Profile Review
As a child, Jiraiya and his former teammates, Orochimaru and Tsunade, were students of the Third Hokage. After leaving the Third's tutelage, he traveled the world and discovered the residence of the toads, who trained him to call upon them in battle. During this time a prophecy concerning Jiraiya was told, dictating that he would travel the world while writing a book and meet a child who would either revolutionize or destroy the world.
Despite the fact that he periodically leaves Konoha, Jiraiya has maintained a strong allegiance with his hometown. He will also often come back to Konoha, even if it to just spy on women in the bathing house.
Jiraiya is a self-proclaimed super-pervert with no equal and a frequent voyeur.

Jiraiya Abilities
Jiraiya is known as the "Toad Sage" due to his utilization of a number of toad-related jutsu. Many typically deal with summoning toads, and he has risen to a level of ability that allows him to summon Gamabunta.
He can even summon the nearly indestructible esophagus of a great, fire-breathing toad with Summoning: Toad Mouth Bind. Once the jutsu has been used to cover the area, Jiraiya can control it as he pleases and use it to trap most ninja.
In addition to calling upon toads for aid in battle, Jiraiya has a number of jutsu he can use independently. He uses Earth Release: Swamp of the Underworld.He can spit either fire or oil from his mouth, allowing him to burn or drench opponents as he pleases.Jiraiya has also been shown to use his hair for jutsu, and can grow and sharpen it to surround him as a shield, protecting him from harm and injuring attackers, or use it to bind and impale opponents.
His Toad-Silhouette Control Technique, allows him to merge with the shadows of others, and through this he is able to take complete control of their body. Jiraiya was taught how to use the Rasengan by Minato, and has since developed a variant called Super Great Ball Rasengan.
Jiraiya has been shown to be very knowledgeable with sealing jutsu, and has used a number of them throughout the series.
