The Sannin is the collective name of three legendary ninja from Konohagakure, who are noted to be three of the greatest ninja of their time. While all three eventually left the village at some point for their own reasons, they all retained their renown from their title of Legendary Three Ninja (伝説の三忍, Densetsu no Sannin).


The group is comprised of the three genin from Team Hiruzen — which was led by Hiruzen Sarutobi. When the team was formed, the three genin were only six years old and Hiruzen was already the Third Hokage; they used the bell test to serve as their promotion to genin. When the three shinobi were promoted, as customary, the team disbanded. The three would however work together during the Second Shinobi World War. During their battle with Hanzō of Amegakure, according to Hanzō himself, the three put up a courageous battle against him. Having survived the battle, Hanzō named them, as a reward, earning them the title Sannin (伝説の三忍, Densetsu no Sannin; Literally meaning "Legendary Three Ninja") of Konohagakure. The three would later become legends in the shinobi world, though the Sannin as a team dissolved with Orochimaru's defection from the village.
