Jiraiya is a sage from the Naruto anime. He was one of the Leaf Village's legendary Sannin and was known as the "Toad Sage" because of his special affinity for toads. Famed as a hermit and pervert of stupendous skill, Jiraiya traveled the world in search of knowledge that would help his friends, his series of adult novels, and, ultimately, the world in its entirety. His skills as a toad sage are quite advanced and can even gain toad-like attributes.
