The first of Jiraiya’s prisoners was uncooperative, so Jiraiya demonstrates how “ruthless” he can be with those who don’t want to help him: he turns Hidden Rain Ninja into a toad. His companion suddenly becomes very obliging and reveals all the information he knows. He tells Jiraiya what little the inhabitants of Hidden Rain know about Paine. He corrects Jiraiya’s belief that the village is in a state of civil war – Paine’s side has already won. Jiraiya was shocked to learn that someone had managed to defeat the former leader of Hidden Rain, Hanzo, whom even he and the other Sannin could not defeat. The captured ninja then recounted how Paine had come to be considered a god in the eyes of the Hidden Rain people. It turned out that he had killed every person even remotely related to Hanzo in order to eliminate any possibility of dissent.
