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.
Last one of the week. What's your opinion of Boruto? What do you think of him compared to Naruto at his age? Do you think he's stronger at this point compared to his father? What's your opinion of him using the kote and does that tarnish him as ninja? I mean Naruto had Kiba and Neji under his belt so would you say his resume is a lot weaker in terms of accomplishments?
1. I find his potential interesting, but his character bores him.
2. In terms of jutsu depth, he's superior, in terms of chakra, he's inferior.
3. No, Naruto had the Jinchuriki Form. He has more innate skill though.
4. Boruto cheats because he doesn't know how to handle hardship. Unlike his father, who lived it. The truth is Boruto has no excuse to use the kote, had he developed and trained his skills like Naruto, the kote wouldn't have been useful. He also didn't have as much respect for what a shinobi meant, something Naruto had since the beginning.
5. The more impressive feat was that Naruto beat Kiba, who was fresh after only being in the Forest of Death for a short while, while Naruto was there almost right up to the deadline, and was completely exhausted in addition to having his chakra disrupted by Orochimaru's Five Pronged Seal. Despite all of these handicaps, Naruto still outlasted Kiba in terms of raw stamina, and still defeated him in a test of taijutsu, which Kiba was superior to Naruto in. With Neji, Naruto negated the effects of Neji's Gentle Fist and overpowered him.
When it comes to Boruto's fights, they weren't nearly as difficult. This was because the shinobi Boruto faced weren't nearly as difficult as the ones Naruto felt, Boruto either overpowered them or cheated to overpower them. Naruto had an uphile struggle.
Thanks for taking the time out to answers questions and give insight it's greatly appreciated. (1) If Orochimaru is considered to be the strongest of the Sannin, and I assume this because he was even Hiruzen's first choice and he defeated Jiraiya. Why would Itachi, whom Orochimaru considered to be stronger, say that if he fought Jiraiya it would end at a stalemate? I know that Nagato said that if Jaraiya knew his secret he would of lost, but isn't it common knowledge that Orochimaru is stronger than Jaraiya. Kind of like how Sasuke was stronger than Naruto at first. (2) Did Orochimaru also fear Nagato being that Nagato was considered the strongest member of Akatsuki? (3) If Itachi wasn't terminally ill could he succeed in defeating Nagato?
This last question is kind of unrelated. (4) Did Itachi fear Danzo in a way and is Danzo a highly skilled shinobi? I mean he looked impressive against Shisui Uchiha but not against Sasuke Uachiha. I know his age played a factor in it but Hiruzen even though he lost looked really impressive against Orochimaru. I know he wasn't on Hiruzen's level, but Danzo was chosen to be the next hokage in Tsunade's absence.
1. Here's the first thing you need to understand. Just because one shinobi is stronger than another, doesn't necessarily mean he is also stronger than anyone else that other shinobi could beat. For example, Orochimaru would lose to Itachi, but Itachi can still lose to Jiraiya. Even if Jiraiya loses to Orochimaru. Power rankings in Naruto are not that simple.
Basically, this is the deal. Orochimaru is very powerful when it comes to fighting him with pure force. We saw this in how he faired against the Four-Tails Naruto, even though he had only a fraction of his regular ninjutsu, Orochimaru still managed to hold his own. Even though Jiraiya was nearly killed.
However, something Orochimaru is not very good at defending against is genjutsu. It doesn't matter how physically strong he is, Itachi can easily defeat him using his genjutsu. What's more, Itachi has Amaterasu, which almost makes all of Orochimaru's jutsu pointless.
When it comes to Jiraiya, Itachi is seeing a different skill set. We never got to see the full extent of Jiraiya's abilities. Remember, Jiraiya is the most balance of the three Sannin, he even has a higher databook stat rating than Orochimaru and Tsunade, who are tied, and Jiraiya's stat rating itself is tied with Itachi. Which should tell you something.
Itachi didn't say he couldn't beat Jiraiya, just that he wouldn't come out of it untouched, if anything he thought he could beat Jiraiya, but he would also die in the process.
2. The interaction between the two was never shown in the manga. So we don't know what relationship Orochimaru had with Pain. However, in the anime scenes from NSUNS Revolution, Orochimaru immediately recognizes the Rinnegan, but admits he can't do anything against Nagato because he is too powerful. Hence why Pain felt comfortable letting Orochimaru into the Akatsuki.
3. Possibly, its hard to say. It was once stated in an interview that Itachi at full health had prowess comparable to EMS Madara, whose only known rival would have been Hashirama. One the other hand, Fukasaku stated that Nagato's skill set is so complex and high-level, that even if you were Kage-level, you wouldn't win unless you knew the trick behind his jutsu.
So, honestly. I can't say. Like I said above in "1", judging skill sets is not that simple. Nagato doesn't have to be more powerful than Itachi, to beat him. Just like Nagato stated he wasn't necessarily stronger than Jiraiya, just that Jiraiya was at a disadvantage of not knowing his jutsu's secret.
4. Firstly, the business with Shisui is anime-only, so you can't take it into context. Danzo's relationship with Shisui was never shown in the manga. However, Danzo cleared respected Shisui's abilities, as he went out of his way to steal Shisui's right Mangekyo, and was after the left one as well.
You also have to realize that Sasuke was being underestimated in that fight. Sasuke's behavior made him seem childish and arrogant, so Danzo felt comfortable just by using Izanagi against him.
Danzo was probably stronger than Hiruzen when he fought Sasuke. Remember, Danzo was originally Hiruzen's rival for the seat of Hokage, meaning Danzo was more than likely Kage-level in his youth just like Hiruzen. However, it was stated Hiruzen was the strongest of his generation. Meaning Danzo was weaker than him. Unlike Hiruzen though, in his elder years, Danzo had Orochimaru prepare that arm transplant made from Shin Uchiha's right arm, consisting of Hashirama's cells and ten Sharingan. This gave Danzo quite an edge in battle, because not only did it strengthen his body, it also practically made him immortal for roughly ten minutes. Danzo's abilities were at a Kage-level when he was chosen for Hokage seat, in fact, he was probably one of the only three in the village at the time.
You can see the more capable Sasuke proved to be, the more Danzo worried. Hence why he started checking the eyes when they went below five, and even panicked when Sasuke outsmarted him.
Even though I know it was never stated what do you think happened to Hashirama Senju? He was known as the God of Shinobi, but what I don't get was that it's stated he died fighting a war away from the Hidden Leaf Village. He died in his prime I assume because Tobirama Senju, who was close to Hashirama in age, was chosen as his successor who also died in his prime during the First Shinobi World War before choosing Hiruzen Sarutobi as the next hokage. My questions are if Madara faked his death at the time why didn't he come back to overthrow Tobirama whom I assume was weaker than him after Hashirama's death? When Tobirama chose Hiruzen, Hiruzen stated he was the strongest in the group did that include Tobirama as well? If Hashirama was the God of Shinobi how could he be killed I wouldn't say easily but at the height of his power? The performance Madara put on against the ninja alliance would you say at some point he surpassed Hashirama?
I sure these questions aren't to tough for the Great Omega64.
1. Hashirama was stated to have died in a war, but it was never stated who killed him or how many enemies there are. I suspect Hashirama fell just like the Third Raikage, sacrificing himself to save him comrades. In fact, because of Hashirama's peaceful nature, I wouldn't be surpised if he wasted a considerable amount of his strength protecting others or possibly try to defeat the enemy without killing them.
That are multiple different ways Hashirama could have died, but the key here is that it probably was Hashirama's own character that ended up getting him killed. I seriously doubt someone just overpowered him, as Kabuto stated no shinobi since Hashirama has been as strong as him.
2. When it comes to Madara, killing Hashirama was probably the only thing he wanted, he didn't really care about Konoha. If Hashirama died, chances are Madara would lose his drive. However remember, the Infinite Tsukuyomi was the end game. That was what was more important. The Uchiha Clan didn't even matter anymore, and neither did Tobirama or Konoha. Madara just decided to focus all his attention on the Moon's Eye Plan.
3. As long as Tobirama wasn't underestimated like Hashirama was, we have every reason to believe Hiruzen, in his prime, was stronger than Tobirama. Whether he was at that prime when Tobirama sacrificed himself, in another matter. Because Hiruzen wasn't necessarily at his prime at that point.
For all we know, Hiruzen wasn't including Tobirama in that statement, because, like Danzo, he didn't even consider Tobirama being the decoy, because Tobirama was the Hokage.
4. Not necessarily, because there were a lot of advantages for Madara during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, that weren't present for Hashirama. For example, when Madara engaged the Fourth Division, he had a regenerating body and chakra. Meaning as long as he avoided being disabled and sealed, they wouldn't beat him.
Typically the problem for a Kage-level shinobi in fighting a large-scale force, is eventually they get tired out. Madara would not have.
To answer your question fully though, they were pretty even at that point. You have to realize that Hashirama held an advantage over Madara in life. However, after each was reanimated, they fought equally. Basically, Edo Tensei Rinnegan Madara = Edo Tensei Hashirama. The Rinnegan and Wood Release allowed Madara to close the gap between him and Hashirama.
Now, when Madara was fully revived, he overpowered Hashirama. This is because Edo Tensei can't access their full power, so Hashirama was at a disadvantage against a living Madara.
Was Tsunade as a combatant a hokage level kunoichi or did her skill as a medical ninja qualify her as hokage level? I ask because her performance against Kabuto, Nagato, and even Madara was a bit of a let down.
She was considered to be the strongest overall kunoichi during her time, and her medical skills factored into that.
First off, you have to realize that Madara is also in a class of his own, Tsunade can't compete with him at all, and neither can any other standard Kage-level shinobi. You need to be of the highest caliber to properly compete, especially when Madara was an Edo Tensei, and had regenerating body and chakra. That makes him even harder, even if he is not at 100%.
In the case of Kabuto, she still had her fear of blood, and Kabuto had the ability to heal at a unique rate. However, Orochimaru still said that if Kabuto came off on the wrong side of Tsunade's full power punch, he would die, pure and simple.
She also didn't really fight Nagato. She sacrificed most of her strength trying to protect as many of the Konoha citizens as she could have, while she herself wasn't very injured. Had she not done so, chances are she would have faired much better. Nagato was also stronger than Jiraiya, so you can't blame Tsunade for not doing better, because she even admitted that she couldn't beat someone Jiraiya couldn't.
In most cases, we never really got to see Tsunade shine. But she is stronger than the Raikage, even if the Raikage is faster. She is probably the weakest of the Sannin, but that doesn't mean she isn't very dangerous.
