    Default About Summoning jutsus...

    Just about every powerful ninja in the Narutoverse has some kind of summoning jutsu that summons some supernatural animal to help in battle, like Orochimaru's snakes, Jiraiya's toads and the Third Hokage's monkeys.
    It's very convenient and all, but it's never explained why exactly the animals are willing to serve their summoners. What do they get from risking their lives interfering in human affairs? Why is snake boss Manda the only one who asks for something in return(in his case, 100 human sacrifices)?

    Actually, I have kind of been wondering that as well, it is something that hasn't ever really been explained, at least not well. Also, where do the beasts come from, Jiraiya's Toads seem to come from Myouboku Mountain but do they all just live there waiting to be summoned, is it even in the normal world? If so what about all the others, where are they most of the time? What would happen if they were killed before being Summoned or if 2 people tried to summon the same thing at the same time? Most summons seem to disappear before being killed but as was shown with Manda, clearly they can be killed. Also, some summons seem to possess human like intelligence and personalities while others seem like dump beasts that can be controlled as puppets. The whole system of summoning in Naruto could really do with some more explanation.

    Manda's case is a bit different from the rest of the summoned animals. As far as what happens when two people try to summon the same one, they explained that. Remember gamakichi(sp?)? And yeah the summons are different, you have to have versatility among them or else what is the point?

    I don't recall specifically when someone attempts to summon 2 of the same beasts at once. Do you recall which chapter that happens in?

    I realize that the summons are different for a reason I was more questioning how that relates to the nature of their control and interactions within the real world. For example, the more intelligent summons with personality seem fully capable of performing Ninjutsu of their own and also seem to be prone to disobedience. So if those creatures exist within the actual world, what is it that makes a creature such as that a summon to begin with? For example, the Toads of Myouboku Mountain, Jiraiya was shown living among them and even served as their student. I assume that means they exist in the physical world but in that case what is it that separates them from humans besides their form? What makes them summons?

    I guess its just the fact that you "summon" it from another place, though in reality, it can deny giving you help. Like when Kabuto summoned Manda, they kept Orochimarues disability a secret. Knowing it wouldn't aid them if he knew the summoner was severely hurt.
    But again, its just a manga^

    well what we do know is that a "summon" requires a summoning contract between the summon(s) and the summoner. We also know that some sort of price has to be paid for the summon to work. Most commonly blood. Manda wanted human sacrifices along with the blood used for summoning.

    The fact that one needs a contract for summoning a creature makes me wonder if they creatures they summon are actually deities/gods from their own legends. Well...minus a few exceptions. Like Kakashi's summons. The contract for summoning doesn't seem like an ordinary item to begin with.

    I'm not sure if addressed your question correctly or not....
