Jiraiya was an impressive and secretive ninja in Naruto Shippuden, and unfortunately some of these secrets ended up dying along with Ero-Sennin during Pain’s arc.
Except there is a detail about Jiraiya that you probably didn’t realize and it is more obvious than it looks: he was a millionaire!
Yes, that’s what you just read! Our dear Master of Frogs was filthy rich. And we will explain why.
In the ninja world, each mission gives you a different amount of reward according to your difficulty. That is, the more difficult the challenge, the more Ryo – the world’s ninja currency – goes into your pocket.
The “payout” table for missions by ranking is as follows:
- S 🠒 Above 1,000,000 Ryo
- A 🠒 150,000 The 1,000,000 from Ryo
- B 🠒 80,000 The 200,000 from Ryo
- C 🠒 30,000 The 100,000 Ryo
- D 🠒 1000 The 22,000
But what does this have to do with Jiraiya?
Well, it turns out that our Ero-Sennin is known for being the ninja with the most missions completed in history. There were about 1,839 missions successfully executed, at all levels shown above.
We know that in total, Jiraiya completed about:
- 138 S Rank Missions
- 614 Rank A Missions
- 684 Rank B Missions
- 345 Rank C Missions
- 58 Rank D Missions
Considering that 1 Ryo is worth 10 Yen, you can consider that Jiraiya receives on average:
- ￥ 138,000,000 of the Missions of Rank S
- ￥ 353,050,000 of the Missions of Rank A
- ￥ 95,760,000 of the Missions of Rank B
- ￥ 22,425,000 of the Missions of Rank C
- ￥ 667,000 of the Missions of Rank D
That totals a trifle of about ￥ 609,902,000! If we were to convert this amount into reais, we could say that Jiraiya would have an average fortune of approximately R $ 31,501,328.82, or US $ 5,588,379.55 if you prefer a more consolidated currency.
Not bad for anyone who has devoted much of his life to carrying out dangerous missions around the world. But the question that remains to be answered is: where did all this money go after Jiraiya’s death?
