She shouldn’t, her parents weren’t jinchuuriki


Hallow_Shinobi

Her grandmother was the Jinchuriki until Kushina. So unless Tsunade's parents were born before the Kyubi was sealed in Hashirama's wife (unlikely) then they should have the same whiskers as Naruto and Tsunade would inherit Boruto and Hima's two whisker look.


soalone34

Why? It is only inherited by the direct offspring, it doesn’t pass to other generations.


Key_Speed_3710

boruto and himawari have them


soalone34

Because they are direct offspring of naruto


Hallow_Shinobi

As far as you know


Lillythewalrus

It’s just a theory, but boruto and himwari shouldn’t rlly have the stripes naruto has as they weren’t in the womb exposed to Kurama’s chakra like naruto was. The fact that they have them suggests that it was a genetic trait caused by the 9-tails chakra, that naruto passed onto them. With that logic, one of Tsunade’s parents could’ve passed along the same markings.


Rozenmarine-

Neither of Tsunade's parents were jinchuriki so that wouldnt have worked. So what I assume is that it happened because of Naruto. Basically, because Naruto was around and they were near his chakra and because they had his dna, they had indirect contact with Kurama for months. Which might have caused them to only have two whiskers instead of three. Unlike Naruto. Who had direct contact with him through Kushina


Ymuroe

So boruto’s son will have one whisker?🤨


Lillythewalrus

You’re probably right, i wonder tho, if that was the case wouldnt there be a bunch of babies in konaha that were exposed to massive amounts of kurama’s chakra during the attack on the village?


Rozenmarine-

No. Because that contact wouldnt have been strong enough. Kurama just attacked the village and didnt really have any contact with villagers aside of his attempt to murder all of them back then. Naruto was the dad and was around them a lot every day (He wasnt Hokage back then after all)


vakiiichan

Uhh... Why?


Lillythewalrus

Naruto got his stripes by being the offspring of a jinchuriki, I always assumed boruto and himawari got their stripes through narutos genetics since they weren’t you know.. in his womb. If they weren’t exposed to his chakara directly in utero, one could assume the markings were a genetic trait caused by being exposed to 9-taile chakra in the womb. Tsunade was the grand child of the first 9-tails jinchuriki, so technically it could be possible that one of her parents had the 3 stripe markings from Mito Uzumaki hosting the 9-tails during her pregnancy, therefore passing the two stripe mark onto her.

What lol

For the timeline to work, Tsunade's parent would need to be at the minimum Hiruzen's age (who is 18 years older than the Sannin). That would mean being born before the village was even established, or at least before Mito became a jinchuriki. So neither Tsunade nor her parent carry Kurama's chakra. Mito apparently gave birth to at least one more child after she became a jinchuriki (Tsunade's aunt or uncle), but we don't know anything about them. They would've had whiskers like Naruto.


Lillythewalrus

Ah, I didn’t think about the order in which Mito’s kids were born, that makes sense. I wonder who that kid was. I wish that generation got more attention throughout the series. Also thanks for explaining instead of just downvoting me lmao.


Cranesbill

Yeah, the timeline isn't always clear, but the First Fanbook says the village was founded 60 years before Part 1, when Hiruzen was already 9 years old, and so was presumably Tsunade's parent. And some years after that Madara defected and weaponized Kurama. I agree, though, Hashirama's children could've been shinobi of legend but are never referenced. Honestly Tsunade could very well have been Hashirama and Mito's daughter and not much would change at all.


lady_tsunade_fan3

Nice edit but that wouldn't make sense


Lillythewalrus

Yeah I understand that now :/


lady_tsunade_fan3

It's still a cute edit


DrZ_DrZ

That's weird. But she looks cute with it...


Cranesbill

Honestly, yeah, she's rocking those whiskers.


builttwospill

She should have a bunch of wrinkles on her face too, but she uses her chakra to hide those, so why would she leave other blemishes in place?


jmmrad000

i think that only works if its a parent
