Here’s the story of Orochimaru, who is no longer seen as a threat to Naruto.
Orochimaru is a strong character in Naruto world. Orochimaru first appeared in the series during Chunin’s exams arc. To increase his strength as a Shinobi Shinobi, he took part in the exams.

Orochimaru was, in my opinion, the greatest villain of the series at the time. His aura was perilous and even the Hokage was frightened by his presence. Orochimaru was a formidable antagonist in the Naruto series. However, his character became non-essential as the story moved forward.
Orochimaru Rises To Power
Orochimaru was an innate genius. had already been a Chunin by the time he turned six. He was also a master of many jutsu. He lost his parents at an early age and his goals in life were to find ways to achieve immortality. Orochimaru was a highly skilled ninja, earning him the respect and admiration of Hiruzen Sabobi, who considers them his favorite student. Orochimaru grew up to become a Jonin and made great progress in his quest for immortality.
Unfortunately, he was also a crazy man and would do anything to fulfill his dreams. Orochimaru continued to fight in Second Great Ninja War. He was also one of the Legendary Sannin from his village. Orochimaru soon earned legendary praise and was elected to the title of Hokage. Unfortunately, his wicked ways had grown to a point where he would kidnap people and perform experiments on them in an attempt to achieve immortality. This was when he reached his peak as a fighter and eventually left the village.
Orochimaru’s Shinobi status made him a formidable warrior. Kakashi, a ninja worthy to be the Hokage could not help but become paralyzed when he was around. Orochimaru was able to master all five Nature Transformations in a short time. In addition, he was able to master many jutsu. Orochimaru had mastered almost all Jutsu found in Konoha, just like his teacher Hiruzen Sabobi. His combat prowess meant that he was able to kill the Fourth Kazekage. Hiruzen Sabobi was also a regular opponent during Konoha Crush. Orochimaru couldn’t fight the way he wanted. Sage Jutsu was not possible for him due to his sickening health.
Orochimaru found Ryuchi Cave. He had learned the techniques of Senjutsu. Unfortunately, he was unable to attain the body necessary for him to put these skills into practice. Instead, he became the Cursed Seals. In his prime, Jiraiya was a formidable fighter. He could even take on Kage-level Shinobi. Unfortunately, his body didn’t allow him the opportunity to reach his full potential as an opponent fighter.
Orochimaru’s fall as a villain
Orochimaru is easily one of the most memorable villains Kishimoto created in early Naruto. Perhaps the most striking thing about his character is the threatening aura he emits. Orochimaru is the main villain in Naruto’s first half, up until the time skip. Orochimaru was less important as the story focused more on the Uchiha family and the tales of Indra and Ashura. Orochimaru was killed off very early in the second section of the story. It was an extremely anticlimactic ending to the story. Kabuto, who was one of the main perpetrators of The Fourth Great Ninja War, took his remains.
Sasuke who had killed Orochimaru, made Orochimaru return to his home in the second half of the war. Even though Orochimaru was still alive, it was clear that Sasuke, and other Shinobi of the time, had already overcome him. His character wasn’t as menacing anymore and he wasn’t given an arc to prove his true capabilities after Konoha Crush. Orochimaru became a comical character in the war, and, despite all of his wrongdoings, he was allowed to have relationships even with the Leaf Village. Orochimaru, like many other villains in The Story, was able to become “good-hearted” and lost all his potential for being a formidable villain.
