Hashirama Senju was a legendary ninja who became the First Hokage (Shodai Hokage, literally meaning : First Fire Shadow, or "Founding Fire Shadow") of Konoha. He called the Senju clan and the Uchiwa clan to found the village of Konoha.

He met Madara Uchiwa, who was about the same age as him, at a game of ricochet and they became friends. After his brother Itama died at the hands of the Uchiwa, he talked with his new friend and they began to devise a system to protect the children, which later became the Ninja Academy and the mission system. They faced each other in many challenges, testing each other and showing each other their techniques to strengthen their confidence in each other.
Hashirama's father heard about this and decided to set a trap for Madara. But true to his friendship, Hashirama warned Madara and Madara warned Hashirama about his father's trap as well. Madara eventually ended their friendship, as all his brothers except Izuna had been killed by Senju, and they fought several times on the battlefields afterwards. The two friends became rivals and became the leaders of their respective clans. Chief of the Senju clan, he quickly built a solid reputation making his clan one of the two most powerful of the time, especially thanks to the art of Mokuton (mastery of wood) of which he was the instigator. The Uchiwa clan, and especially its leader Madara Uchiwa, who did not want to be left behind, in spite of the fear that Hashirama could inspire, always tried to be part of the opposing camp in the conflicts in which the Senju took part.
This war of rivalry caused many casualties on both sides and Hashirama decided to propose an armistice to the Uchiwa clan. Madara as the leader opposed this proposal, but the rest of his clan, tired of all these wars, finally forced him to accept this truce. The Uchiwa lost ground to the Senju and finally one day Izuna received a wound from Tobirama that proved fatal. Madara then received the eyes of Tobirama and challenged Hashirama with his new power. The fight lasted a whole day before Madara was knocked down. Hashirama asked him for the conditions for Madara to trust them and Madara said, "Either you kill your brother... or you kill yourself... then... only then can I trust your brother.
Soon after, the two clans united and the then Daimyo of the Land of Fire, who wished to pacify his territory, signed an agreement with them, laying the foundation for what would become the hidden ninja village of Konoha. The other major nations followed the example of the Fire Nation and signed agreements with the ninja clans to create hidden villages and pacify their territories.
With this system, many conflicts ended and a period of peace that everyone hoped would last began. But this ideal soon cracked and there were internal struggles to obtain the title of Hokage. Hashirama wanted to nominate Madara so that he could look after the members of the village and consider them as his brothers but Tobirama and the ninjas opposed this and wanted to nominate the Hokage by democracy.
It was Hashirama who finally became the First Hokage of the village and Madara saw this as a victory for the Senju and an ousting of the Uchiwa power. He showed the Uchiwa stele to Hashirama and told him what he had read and after wanting those of his clan to rebel, but who turned their backs on him, he left the village of Konoha despite Hashirama's pleas to keep him there.

Hashirama was a quiet and sociable man with a deep sense of loyalty. He considered everyone in Konoha as his own family. For this reason, he always tried to give Konoha a sound foundation that would enable it to cope with any conflict. This wise man passed on his teachings to the next generations, especially to Hiruzen Sarutobi.
He taught them loyalty among ninjas, and that the role of a Kage was to defend those under his protection at the risk of his life. His legacy is this thought, called by his successors the Will of Fire.
Contrasting somewhat with the public's image of the most powerful shinobi that had ever existed, Hashirama was shown as a jovial and exuberant person. This was seen after he was resurrected a second time with his personality left intact and he was barely able to contain his excitement after learning that there was a Fourth Hokage, interpreting this as a sign of stability in the village. He was later shocked, as well as worried, when he learned that Tsunade had become the Fifth Hokage due to the fact that he had spoiled her a bit too much as a child, even teaching her to play money. The relationship between him and his brother is however very tense and reversed since Hashirama regularly bends before his more authoritarian brother. But his anger is the only thing capable of bending Tobirama under his orders, threatening to destroy the entire environment just by releasing a large amount of chakra at once.
Hashirama was a tall man with tanned skin, black eyes and long black hair typically styled with two locks framing his face, although sometimes he wore it braided in the back with two small braids on either side of his face instead. In most cases he wore the standard shinobi outfit of his time, consisting of traditional dark red armor similar to that of the samurai worn over a simple black tunic. This armor was made of several metal plates, formed into multiple protections around his body, in particular: chest, shoulders, thighs and forearms. Each collar of his shoulder protectors was decorated with the Senju symbol. This outfit was accompanied by sandals and the village headband after his training. During fights, he often carried a number of large scrolls.
In the village, Hashirama tended to wear the traditional Kage outfit of the usual hat and cloak over a long robe, with a simple red headband. Otherwise, he wore a light brown short-sleeved kimono jacket with chain mail underneath, held closed with a red belt, and navy blue pants.
Skills and CompetenciesHashirama Senju was reputed to be the most powerful shinobi of his time, having been called the "God of the Shinobi" also claimed by Madara Uchiwa. His power was so respected by the shinobi world that Tobi claimed that Hashirama was the person he admired and hated the most. Kabuto claimed that Hashirama's strength was enormous, that there was no shinobi of the current era who could match his strength. It was such that many considered his prowess to be a mere legend, like the existence of the Sage of the Six Paths. The most famous example was not only his ability to fight on equal footing with Madara Uchiwa despite the power of his Mangekyô Sharingan Eternal and his control over Kyûbi but also to have won and survived the fight. As posthumous proof of Hashirama's power, Madara claimed that being the only one of the two alive, the landscape should not change as drastically as if Hashirama was there as well, a reference to the fight that created an entire valley.
As the leader of the Senju clan, Hashirama had formidable skills in many ninja techniques and had considerable knowledge in those he did not use. He had advanced skills in taijutsu with prodigious speed and strength. In addition, he was experienced in genjutsu and could cast powerful illusions such as the Dive into Darkness. In the anime, he showed his skills in kenjutsu and fûinjutsu, using a scroll of parchment which he used to seal a number of large swords and later, for the use of the Seal of Contracts which he used to break Madara's control over Kyubi.

According to Madara, Hashirama was also able to use medical techniques. His technique was such that he could heal himself without forming seals and his medical techniques, which his descendant Tsunade - who is considered to be the greatest doctor ninja in the world - was on a whole other level. His ability to use medical ninjutsu shows that Hashirama had excellent chakra control.
Nature of chakra
He was most famous for his kekkei genkai, the Mokuton, which is a mixture of the water element and the earth element of chakra, which creates this new element. By converting his chakra into the source of life, he was able to create trees, being able to make them grow enormously and manipulate them into various forms and battles at will, which even gave the nickname "Mori no Senju Ichizoku" (the Senju of the forest) to his clan. It is said that he himself shaped the environment of Konoha village. This skill appeared to be exclusive to him, as no other known member of his clan showed the same skill. Even those who obtained this power through unorthodox means, such as Yamato who claimed that his mastery of Mokuton was far from matching him in terms of power. He had a very powerful technique, the World of Flowers: Hashirama started by making a huge forest appear and then growing flowers that had a kind of perfume that put those who breathed it to sleep.
In practice, he could totally reshape the environment around him, thus having a very important advantage over his opponent(s). Finally, such a mastery of Mokuton implies a perfect mastery of the elements water and earth.
The most particular and coveted technique of Hashirama is certainly his unique ability to control the bijû. His ability was such that he could control the most powerful bijû, Kyûbi, but also several other bijû at the same time.
This ability came directly from his kekkei genkai, the Mokuton with a chakra suppression technique of the bijû named Kakuan Nitten Suishu. Hashirama then invoked special wooden pillars surrounding the bijû and then annihilated its chakra more or less quickly in the delimited area.
A special gemstone called kesshôseki responded strangely to his chakra and increased this ability. Naruto inherited this necklace but it was destroyed later because of Kyûbi's chakra.
He was also one of the greatest users of taijutsu. Combined with superhuman strength, his fighting style from the old days was unique, formidable and powerful. His brother, Tobirama, also used the same type of hand-to-hand combat.
