Aoda of Ryūchi Cave December 22, 2014
Today we will be looking at Sasuke’s latest summon, Aoda. Aoda became acquainted with Sasuke during his training with Orochimaru. Aoda is a large blue snake with light green eyes and is easily comparable in size to the largest of summons.
Like many snakes, Aoda possesses large infrared-sensitive receptors on its snout. As a snake, he is extremely fast and nimble, successfully moving through an entire army of the Ten-Tails’ clones, while evading all of their attacks.
It is also noted that Aoda is stark contrast to Manda, a snake of similar size to it, Aoda seems to be very mild mannered and respectful to its summoner, as shown when it addresses Sasuke with the “-sama” suffix and dutifully follows all his orders without needing to be controlled. Aoda also asked Sasuke how he could be of service the instant he was summoned. He was also described as simple.
