The thing is, it has been shown in manga that Boruto was able to awaken only one byakugan. Thus both the siblings have byakugan. Will all descendants of Boruto and Himawari have byakugan as well? And will Boruto be able to awaken byakugan in his other eye?
Unfortunately, Boruto's right eye hasn't been confirmed to be a Byakugan. All we know is that it is featureless. Which is also true for blind eyes, as well as Byakugan. Given that Boruto has a large scar running down his face, its just as likely that his eye was blinded as it being as possible Byakugan.
Basically, we don't have enough information at this time. The fact the eye doesn't have any veins on it is particularly damning to the case that it is a Byakugan. The reveal could have been intended to show Boruto's eye's fate, or show a Byakugan, we simply can't say for sure at this time.
That being said, the Hiden novel series hints that diluted heritage can result in only one Byakugan being created, if the opposing bloodline is strong enough. For example, if an Uchiha had a child with a Hyuga, the resulting child would awaken a Sharingan in one eye, and a Byakugan in the other.
Boruto and Himawari already show a unique case as they have blue eyes rather than featureless white eyes like normal Hyuga do in a Byakugan's inactive state. Of course, this isn't intentional, as Kishimoto admitted he forgot to give the children the Byakugan. So, had he remembered, they would had the featureless eyes and there would have been no question they had the Byakugan.
So, technically, Kishimoto has a way to get out of the mistake, regardless of whether he meant it or not.
Himawari was sort of an example of the correction of this, as despite having blue eyes, she can still activate the Byakugan. Boruto has pretty much the same bloodline make-up as her, so just as she can activate the Byakugan, so should Boruto.
There is also the chance Boruto is in a similar situation as Kakashi, and the Byakugan in his head is not natural to him. Such as his natural eye was destroyed like Kakashi's left eye was, and he replaced it with a Byakugan later on. That would explain why Boruto had the eye shut prior to fighting, because he can't deactivate it like a natural user can, similar to how Ao had his covered.
Either way, if Boruto only activates one Byakugan, I highly doubt he would have a seperate case of awakening a second one. Dojutsu always awaken in pairs, there has never been a known case of only one dojutsu awakening at a given time. Save for Sasuke's Rinnegan, which is a very unqiue case.
Perhaps. Given that the eye has already turned blue instead of its usual featureless white, its insinuating that Hinata's Kekkei Genkai bloodline is already diluting. Meaning that given enough time, the Byakugan would disappear from the bloodline, because it is becoming so diluted. But this would be conditioning on who Boruto and Himawari decide to have children with. If the spouses' bloodlines are weak enough, they should be fine.
Also. The problem is, two members doesn't a Kekkei Genkai for a clan make. Just because Boruto and Himawari have the Byakugan doesn't mean the Uzumaki bloodline has Byakugan, as it might only be true for those two. Rather, it would mean Boruto and Himawari are Uzumaki, with Hyuga heritage. The Byakugan being that heritage. If the heritage becomes diluted as I suspect it would, than the descendants would only inherit the Uzumaki bloodline.
Hey Omega, I had a question about the Bell Test. Say if one of the three Genin got a bell (there are two of course) would that one Genin now have to stay out of the test since he or she has now passed? Or would the Genin still have to participate in order to show their Sensei the teamwork that the cell has?
And what about the two other Genin? With one bell left, one of them is bound to fail right? Would it have to be a competition between the two to see who can get it first, or can they work together, try to get it but still pass thanks to working together?
When it comes to the bell test, the idea was to get them to act as a group, meaning that although there would have to be one "loser", they win as a team. It was never about actually having a bell. Had Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto gotten the bells as a group, it wouldn't have mattered if one of them didn't get the bell, because that was never the true test.
However, Hiruzen held a bell test where they actually had to steal a bell, just like Kakashi did with Naruto and Sakura, but the exception was there were three people in Hiruzen's test and only two bells.
It was never stated if the purpose of that bell test was to show teamwork or just test their abilities. Either way, Orochimaru and Tsunade ended up stealing the bells, while Jiraiya ended up tied to the log.
The idea if there is only one bell and two people is the same as if their are two bells and three people. Someone is going to be left out, the test is to see if you can move past that knowledge and still work as a group, knowing that someone isn't going to get what they need.
The main thing about the bell test is that it tests unity in the face of personal goals. You having a bell is critical to you passing, meaning its entirely personal, so most shinobi will get wrapped up in achieving victory for themselves. However, Kakashi pointed out that regardless how skilled a Genin is, they aren't getting the bells if they don't work together.
So, its a test to see if you can figure that out. Work together even though the test's very nature draws to the contrary.
Now, whether one leaves the test or not is not explained, because technically speaking if you aren't working as a group, you aren't getting the bells anyway.
I suppose if you worked together as a group, someone got a bell because of that, the test would then be if you leave the group to fight you alone, or just stop. Because technically, even if you steal a bell, if you don't support the group, you still fail. Meaning that if Sasuke actually stole a bell from Kakashi, and Naruto and Sakura failed because Sasuke just went home, Sasuke and the group would still fail, because Sasuke didn't show teamwork.
hi you recently deleted a question i made . I read the rules and i dont think i violated anything. Something at the rules states that an editor is not supposed to search for something that the lazy one who asks didnt want to put effort in. But to be honest i have searched for days to find the ost i've been searching and you guys were my last resort. What am i supposed to do now?? :(
So you had an OST question? The reason I deleted it is because ultimately these OST questions require quite a bit of research that its unfair to ask the editors this. OSTs were the very reason that guideline was introduced. No one has them all memorized, and they just end up sitting there for days and no one even touchs them.
None of us have anymore of the tools you do. If you want my suggestion, go to YouTube and start listening to the complete OST releases. If you are lucky, your OST will be there, but not all OST were properly named or released, just the best ones.
That is what I used to do to find random OST that I didn't immediately know the name of, and even then I couldn't always find them. I could probably do it for this question, but I don't really want to listen to 3+ hours of OST just to find yours, sorry.
thanks for the answer and the feedback. I know we are definetely not in the same boat and i am sorry for putting weight on your shoulders for no reason but just out of curiosity could you please check out the soundtrack i told you you know the one when hashirama starts using deep forest emergence on hiruzen i think it's episode 71.Thanks for your time and no need to reply with info on the soundtrack just if you have ever listened to it before :)
I did check, and I didn't know it off-hand. I always do before I delete an OST question. If I happen to know it, I will post the name.
Believe me, I understand. I have spent hours looking for my own personal collection of the OSTs, it is a long process, but the way I described is really the best way to do it.
Another piece of advice I can give you is to search things like "fighting music Naruto OST" when searching YouTube, to specifically sort the fighting OST from the other themes, then you can just listen to a collaboration or mix of the fighting themes, and maybe you'll get lucky that way.
Personally, if we are talking about a 1-on-1 fight, I feel Hinata would win.
Sakura has Hinata beat in pure power, but that's about it.
Hinata, after the Last, gained chakra from Hamura, how much, we aren't quite sure.
Sakura's healing abilities are impressive, but its questionable if those abilities could still be used if Sakura's chakra is blocked.
Hinata would probably win because she can block Sakura's chakra points, which would pretty much limit Sakura to pure strength, and even then, the Gentle Fist is far superior. Personally, I believe they have comparable levels of chakra, Hinata just has the superior technique.
Exactly, we've discussed these issues in the past, but I don't expect this editor to know that.
You can't fight a Hyuga with taijutsu, it just doesn't work. Not unless you have like Tailed Beast levels of chakra like Naruto did in his fight against Neji, where you can actually overpower the Rotation with enough raw chakra. They explained that the Rotation reverses chakra and force and reflects it back, meaning Sakura normally shouldn't be able to defeat Hinata if she had Rotation. Likewise, Hinata should be able to see Sakura's movements and attack her with the Gentle Fist Eight-Trigrams. Naruto is the only person we know who is pretty much immune to the Gentle Fist because he can just bust open his own tenketsu and heal any internal damage. Otherwise, even if you can survive the internal damage Gentle Fist does, blocking your tenketsu would damage your jutsu and chakra control. Meaning even if Sakura heals her injuries using Mitotic Regeneration, if her tenketsu are blocked, she can't perform it.
This is also completely ignoring Hinata's advantages from getting Hamura's chakra. Which God knows what that did. Her Lion Fists move also steals chakra from the user, meaning that she would not only damage Sakura's body and tenketsu, but also her chakra.
Sakura may be the strongest kunoichi overall, but that doesn't mean she can take any kunoichi 1-on-1, it just means that she has the most overall power. That is probably one of the issues I have with people calling Sasuke's family the strongest family in Konoha, because Naruto is probably more powerful than both Sasuke and Sakura combined, he could probably kill Sakura with just a Shadow Clone. Also, there is no proof Sakura would beat Hinata in a 1-on-1 fight. Also, Boruto is considered stronger than Sarada, and you have Himawari who has the Byakugan and Gentle Fist.
first of all what makes you think hinata can easily block sakuras chakra points hinata is not that good plus sakura is also faster than her and sakura wont be that reckless cuz she knows hinatas abilites what if sakura summons katsuyu hinata cant beet katsya and lastly you said naruto could beat both sakura and sasuke which is wrong cuz it is a fact that naruto and sasuke are tied.thakyou and im sorry if this sounded harsh
Actually, Sakura is not all that fast. Sakura's abilities lie in her raw strength, she was even flanked during the war, and would have died if both Naruto and Sasuke hadn't attacked her attacker. I don't see any proof of her being any faster than Hinata.
Hinata is that good. She is capable of the 64 palms, which is the highest form of Gentle Fist. Her lions fists that she can mix with it also absorbs chakra while she hits. Also, if she has mastered Rotation, then Sakura just straight up can't hit her, its not even up for discussion.
I wouldn't assume Hinata can't beat Katsuyu. Hinata's power-up from Hamura made her who knows how strong. So you can't just assume Hinata can't do something just because Sakura can. Size also doesn't mean much when you are talking about the Gentle Fist, Neji proved that in his battle with Kidomaru, he can kill a giant spider with just a single blow.
Naruto and Sasuke aren't tied. Naruto is the stronger of the two. He tanked Kaguya most of his fight with her, even damaging her multiple times, while Sasuke didn't even land a single blow. Sasuke also mentioned that Naruto was exhausted at the start of the battle, but Naruto still had enough chakra to counter Sasuke when he absorbed all the chakra of the Tailed Beasts.
Now, if Sasuke still had control over the beasts, you might have a point, but he doesn't. Sasuke couldn't beat Naruto in terms of raw power, Naruto just as far too much chakra. Naruto and Sasuke are a mirror image of Hashirama and Madara, Hashirama was the stronger of the two, and the only way Madara could fight him on equal footing was with Kurama. Naruto and Sasuke are the same way, Sasuke needed the Tailed Beasts to fight evenly with Naruto.
Also, if you are so opposed to be viewpoint, then why'd you ask in the first place? ;)
It would mean instead of using Rotation, she could use that technique to add a cutting element to her "absolute defense". Which only increases the odds Sakura wouldn't really be able to hurt her. Also, Hinata used it in a filler to defeat a summon, similar to Katsuyu.
in my opinion since naruto and sasuke tied in the final valley thier considered equals even boruto said that the only person that can tie with his dad is sasuke.As for sakura and hinata sakura surpassed tsunade so sakuras's kage level while hinata is below kage level.Just cuz hinata has the ability to block chakra doesn't mean she can she isn't skilled or fast enough nor is she as intelligent as neji she isn't as good as neji and even neji wasn't kage level.p.s i'm a girl:)

They only tied because Sasuke used the Tailed Beasts, which he doesn't normally have. So you can't use the Final Valley as proof of anything because Sasuke was using abilities he doesn't normally have. Naruto on the other hand used only abilities he normally has. Should Sasuke and Naruto fight again, Sasuke won't have the advantange of the Tailed Beasts. Also, it was stated Naruto was pretty much exhausted when the fight started, meaning he wasn't at full power anyway, yet he still managed to tie even with Sasuke using the beasts.
Sakura uses taijutsu and she isn't very fast. You can't beat a Hyuga with Gentle Fist with taijutsu, unless you are Naruto or an Eights Gates user. We aren't talking about Hinata being stronger than Neji, because that doesn't matter. Besides, we aren't entirely sure Hinata isn't stronger than Neji after the Last where Hinata gets the big power-up. Hinata has mastered the same moves Neji has, the difference is Hinata has Hamura's chakra at her disposal, as well as her Twin Lion Fists. We also aren't entirely sure Hinata isn't Kage-level, because she got a massive power boost from Hamura's chakra during the Last. If anything, Hinata has shown more overall power than Sakura has, based on the fact she can completely recharge Naruto's natural chakra reserves with her own, meaning she easily has Kage-levels of chakra.
You don't have to be Kage-level to defeat another Kage-level, its all about what jutsu you are using. It doesn't matter if Sakura is Kage-level, she has no way to counter Hinata blocking her tenketsu, nor any way to get past Hinata's defense. Besides, Hinata does have devastating offense, its called the Gentle Fist, she can attack Sakura's internal organs, which is not something you can make stronger with training.
Hinata can block Sakura's tenketsu to prevent chakra flow, meaning Sakura can't heal herself. Without that, there would be no way to undo the damage done to her internal organs.
What I am saying is that Sakura is strong, but the fact she only uses taijutsu for offense is a major handicap for her. Could she also use strong ninjutsu or genjutsu to attack, you might have a point, but she doesn't.
Also, I already guessed you were a girl. I can't imagine many guys picking the username, Cutebunny12.
Yeah, but in different ways, Hinata can manipulate her chakra from every part of her body, so her control is very refined. Sakura is more about perfecting chakra control is her limited area of control, i.e. her hands and feet.
In the anime, Hinata also can use medical ninjutsu like Sakura, but not to the same degree.
That's kind of the funny thing. Because she uses them in that arc, and then never uses them again. It's possible she has to do quite a bit of prep work to use poison and sleepings bombs. After all, she planned everything she did in that arc way in advance, similar to how she made the antidote for Sasori's poison before the fight.
She might be able to, because she did use a chakra scalpel to cut into Naruto's chest to beat his heart, but she never used it in combat. In fact, Tsunade doesn't use it either. However, I doubt it would be of any use. Body Pathway Derangement, to my knowledge, is exclusive to those who has Lightning Release, which Sakura doesn't have. She did use it in a game once though.
Considering a fellow medic-nin Ameno uses water release in conjunction with her medical work and combat, I could've seen Sakura doing something like that with her Water, Earth, Yin, Yang releases, don't you think?
Possibly, but we are working with what we have right now. What I was saying before is that Sakura's taijutsu-only fighting style is her handicap against Hinata. Should Sakura devert some of those skills into ninjutsu and genjutsu, she would have a much higher chance of beating Hinata. But seeing as Sakura is almost entirely taijutsu, I just don't see it.
Pretty much, but Lee has the Eight Gates as a work around. As Guy said, the Eight Gates are so powerful that when the Primary or Reverse Lotus is used, no normal shinobi can defend against it, not even a Byakugan/Gentle Fist-user. However, Sakura doesn't have that level of raw strength and speed. She relies on chakra to strength her punches.
This is where I get frustrated, because some people don't seem to understand the difference. If Sakura doesn't have her chakra, she is not that strong. Sure, she is strong for a normal kunoichi, but Rock Lee, Naruto, and Sasuke can do what Sakura does with raw strength, with no chakra involved, and she shouldn't be able to defeat Hinata. They are on a completely different level when it comes to raw strength, which is what you need to combat the Gentle Fist. Because you might as well not have chakra, if you fight a Gentle Fist user.
This is what I say this with such certainty, its not even a matter of opinion truthfully. You can't beat a skilled Hyuga member with chakra-infused taijutsu. That is their bread and butter, its their specialty. It's like trying to beat Naruto with deceptive tactics, or Shikamaru in strategy or shogi. It is what they do. Its one of the reasons they were considered the strongest shinobi clan in Kononha.
sakura doesn't completely rely on taijutsu she can use katsuyu there is no way hinata can beat her then.Your overestimating hinata's abilities she isn't that can that good that she can easily block sakura's chakra sakura is faster then hinata just check the stats on narutopedia.I just can't see hinata winnng when your facing two people off you don't ony see their abilities you also see how they fight in battle their experiance in fights etc hinata NEVER won or completely fought a battle don't give me that side character excuse kiba and shino both fought their own battles example:kiba vs sakon and ukon he didn't win until kankuro showed up but he held his own. shino vs kankuro he didn't completely win but he held his own just like kiba as for Hinata she barely lasted five minutes against pain or neji but sakura defeated sasori granted chiyo was their to help but sakura still held her own
The stats on Narutopedia are unreliable since they are only from the Third Databook.
No, I'm not. There are plenty of Kage-level shinobi who have beaten giant-class summons, having Katsuyu doesn't really mean anything, because Neji proved Gentle Fist is just as dangerous against large opponents as it is against regular sized people.
Just curious, did you actually see the Last? Because part of me feels like you didn't.
i saw the last it proved to me how incapable hinata was in a fight p.s the only thing hinata's hamura's chakra does is it can replenish naruto's chakra it can destroy the tensigan and its purple that's it.
Except you are missing my point, if she can replenish Naruto's chakra, it would mean she has chakra reserves rivaling Naruto's. Also, the Tenseigan Energy Vessel was a structure not even Naruto could destroy, he needed Hinata's help in order to do so. Hinata can also fly in a manner similar to Hamura and those with the Six Paths Senjutsu, meaning she has abilities familiar with those natures.
I'm sorry that you seem incapable of grasping my point. Hinata's chakra has transcended Sakura's in terms of quality, and as we've seen, it equals and quite possibly surpasses her owns in terms of quantity. Coupled with Sakura's own technique restrictions and her relience on chakra-based techniques, she is ill-suited to face Hinata in a 1-on-1 fight.
Like I said, this doesn't make Hinata the stronger kunoichi. You can easily say Sakura is the strongest kunoichi, and yet, that she can lose to Hinata. The Hyuga Clan have next to OP fighting styles because they are rare mixture of Kekkei Genkai and Hiden techniques. That are next to impossible to avoid.
Hinata's track record against opponents also is not a reason you should judge her, because, like Sakura, she doesn't develop most of her development until later in the series. Take Sakura for example, she was weak as shit in Part I, completely worthless in combat. She could set up ambushes, but that was about it. In Part II, she improved, but Kishimoto's lack of interest in developing her made her drastically fall behind Naruto and Sasuke in development. She was Chunin-level for most of Part II. She only became about Jonin-level during the war. By that point, Hinata had mastered Vacuum Wall, Rotation, and Sixty-Four Palms. All techniques taught to her by Neji, making essentially the Gentle Fist master equivalent of Neji. She proves this by fighting back-to-back with him during the war.
You have to understand that Kishimoto specifically left Sakura alone so he could develop Hinata. Sakura finished her training under Tsunade, but as far as we know, she only managed to match her master's strength. Meaning Sakura is limited to, at best, what we've seen from Tsunade. This means she is mostly restricted to chakra-based techniques.
This would mean, fundamentally, that Hinata will always hold an advantage over her. Unless Sakura devotes some of her training to developing strong ninjutsu or genjutsu, she can't match up to Hinata in 1-on-1 combat.
The reason I mentioned Hamura's chakra is because, it shows Hinata's chakra alone is rivaling Naruto's, which is superior to Sakura's. If their chakra is the same, then it all comes down to technique, which Hinata's is superior.
Hey, remember momoshiki collecting chakra from kurama and gyuki?
Can u tell me why he did that? And it was supposed that Naruto helped shinobi attain true peace, but then these Ootsukis show up and everything is same as before. So, tho it's just an assumption, but I think we will witness yet another war in Boruto series. And btw,in the manga, it was shown that Naruto kind of died. What about that?
First off, Momoshiki was trying to harvest the chakra of Earth. Since the Ten-Tails is gone, Kurama and Gyuki are the largest concentrations of chakra on the planet. Since we know Momoshiki doesn't like to work hard, it makes sense he first goes to the biggest concentrations of chakra to gather as much as he can in the shortest amount of time.
Yes, Naruto achieved peace for the shinobi, but that doesn't have anything to do with the Otsutsuki. Momoshiki and Kinshiki were from a completely different world, and they have nothing to do with the way Naruto's world is now. In fact, the Five Kage worked together in preparation for Momoshiki. Since Momoshiki is already dead, any threat he would cause for a war is rendered null and void.
We are not 100% certain Naruto died, it is just implied he did because of what the enemy, Kawaki, said. In reality, he could be just sealed or trapped for all we know and that was what he was referring to, it wasn't explicitly stated he died.
Besides it wouldn't be the first time a character was stated to have died and it later was revealed he hadn't. We have no reason to believe this Kawaki's claims at this point in time.
Likewise, just because this Kawaki character is attacking Konoha, doesn't really make the world any less peaceful. One individual doesn't mean the world is in chaos and that there is war, it just means that one individual is on a reign of terror.
How exactly this comes about, I could have no way of knowing, the plot is no where near where this flash-forward is putting us.
Sorry to bring this up randomly. I see you answering the majority of the questions people like me ask and I was wondering is that something I should take note of like is you a um Moderator who knows a lot about Naruto or are you just a really Knowledgeable person like us?
Kind of both, I guess. I am one of the admins for this site, so its my job to make sure questions are answered properly. So I do a majority of the question answering as a result, if not, sometime edit other editors answers to make sure they are following the guidelines and covering the dimensions of the question.
I got this position primarily because of my extensive knowledge of Naruto. You will notice I am this wikia top editor in part for that reason.
It is unknown when Tobi actually figured out about Itachi's mission, or if he even knew when Itachi initially joined Akatsuki.
You see, when it comes to Akatsuki, Itachi being a member still did more good than harm for Tobi. Itachi needed to act like a regular member, and for the most part, Itachi was never exposed to anything about the Akatsuki's true agenda.
Assuming any Hyuga was as familiar with Shisui's chakra like Ao was, you have to be aware that Danzo never really had much face time in front of non-Root members and anyone other than the village council, so there is very little chance he gave any Byakugan user even a chance to recognize his eye's chakra. Even if he was around Byakugan users, chances are they were also Root members, so it wouldn't matter anyway.
Aizaz Arif wrote: But even a sharingan user could have recognized his sharingan.
The answer would still be the same, except there aren't even Sharingan users among the Root besides Danzo himself. Plus, most of the Sharingan users are dead by the time Danzo actually probably weaponizes Shisui's eye. Remember, Danzo used a combination of Hashirama's Cells, Shisui's eye, and Shin's Sharingan-encrusted arm as a basis for his techniques. Danzo wouldn't have had all those Sharingan until after the massacre.
Aizaz Arif wrote: And why didn't itachi told hiruzen about Danzo attacking Shisui and obtaining his sharingan?
1. Because its sort of irrelevant since Shisui already killed himself.
2. Telling Hiruzen would expose Itachi to Danzo, that Itachi was aware of Shisui's betrayal and possibly where the other eye was. Besides, Shisui never wanted justice for himself, he died and covered up his death just how he liked it. Itachi confessing the truth to Hiruzen would risk exposing that.
Besides, its never stated Itachi fully trusted Hiruzen either. He trusted him to keep Sasuke safe, but that was only after Itachi had the sort of influence to blackmail him if he didn't. Hiruzen could really refuse. Hiruzen just did Itachi a favor by leaving the Sensing Barrier passcode the same since when Itachi was an ANBU, so Itachi could check-up on Sasuke whenever he wanted.
If Shisui gave his eye to Itachi before dying, then why didn't itachi cast the kotoamatsukami using the eye on tobi which would ultimately have prevented the Fourth Shinobi World War and changed the course of the Shinobi history?
Because it wasn't Shisui using the eye, the eye could only be used once a decade. So, Itachi had to wait ten years just to use the eye, and even then if he used it and it failed, he'd have to wait another 10 years to use it again.
You should know that the illusions Kotoamatsukami casts aren't permanent, they just continue for as long as they are under the genjutsu. Should someone notice Tobi being under genjutsu, say Zetsu, and break him out of it, Itachi would have wasted the use of the eye, and exposed himself as a double agent.
"Fearing that Danzō was right in Shisui's inability to stop the Uchiha's revolt and that the elder would continue to pursue his left eye as well, Shisui entrusted it to Itachi, telling him to protect both the village and the Uchiha name. Shisui wrote a suicide note telling his clan he cannot follow through with the coup d'etat, but his clan's narrow mindedness made them unable to understand this, believing he would even sacrifice innocent lives for the sake of the Uchiha Clan. The contents of the suicide note also made it appear as though he had crushed his eyes when jumping off a cliff into the Naka River to kill himself in order to prevent conflict from arising over his eyes within the clan. He, at the same time, was able to erase his existence, leaving no corpse behind. In the anime, Shisui was also hoping to use his death to awaken Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan, succeeding in the goal."
I'm sorry to hear you think that. Rest assured all the rules serve a purpose, to make the site as organized and easy to access. Many guidelines serve a purpose to create legible questions and credible responses.
Sorry for the incredibly late reply D:, I was changing internet providers and practically had no Internet for two days, and then later forgot to respond to this message, however yes his skills could match upto Teuchi.
I like Itachi he is by far one of the most refined characters in the series and one of my favourite characters :D.
Its fine. Like I said, I never usually expect responses to these things. I just response if they ever come up.
He definitely is a different breed of shinobi, a unique genius just like Minato and Kakashi. I would have liked to see what he was truly capable of during the war, since his illness shouldn't have held him back as much.
There was never given an official name for it. But given he was suffering from hemoptysis and probably cardiac arrest, those are classic symptoms of MPA when it presents with pulmonary manifestations. There is also shortness of breath, and coughing.
Unlike many other forms of vasculitis, such as wegener granulomatosis for example, the upper respiratory tract is usually spared. All the damage is deeper in the lungs. Itachi's case is consistent with this.
Other symptoms along the same vein can be seen during his final battle with Sasuke when Itachi grabs his shirt, reacting to what appears to be a heart attack. Chest pain, myocardial infarction and other signs of cardiac failure are not uncommon effects of this disease, especially considering how it presented.
It is also no secret that by the time of his death, Itachi was nearly blind. This, we know, to be a direct result of the Mangekyo Sharingan. When the Mangekyo is used, it clearly puts a tremendous amount of strain on the eye, and the nerves and blood vessels that surround it. Needless to say, it's inflammatory in and of itself. But it is hasty to assume that Itachi's eye problems are caused by the Mangekyo alone.
Ocular involvement in MPA is uncommon, but can exist - usually in the form of retinal hemorrhage and scleritis. The bloodshot eyes Itachi sports in his final battle with Sasuke show these symptoms clearly. So its possible Itachi accelerated his disease by using his Mangekyo Sharingan.
His low stamina as reported by the databook suggest constitutional symptoms of malaise and fatigue. The peculiar way he rests one hand in his cloak could be an attempt to alleviate painful sensations attributed to peripheral nervous system involvement manifesting as mononeuritis multiplex or myalgia, or simply to support a weakened limb. One could probably even argue his thin stature is evidence of weight loss.
Typically MPA is sort of rare for someone Itachi's age, but their are records of it happening to people in their teens to early 20s, which is when Itachi would have developed it.
