    What's the point of Obito's mask?

    As depicted here, Obito had (or still has) a Zetsu suit which conceals his identity



    However in the most recent manga chapter, he has suddenly crafted a mask for some unbeknownst reason.



    Quite possibly a very irreverent detail, but I am very confused about what the purpose of the mask is, unless I somehow missed a huge part in the manga where there was an explanation of the origin of the newly crafted mask. Irrelevant or not, it's just something to think about. Bizarre theories from the depths of your imaginations are welcomed here for shits and giggles.

    He's denying himself. In other words, he wants to forget who he is. As stated by him, he is nobody.

    Besides hiding his identity, I don't think there was any other reason why he made the mask.

    It's symbolic for his--- Nah, I have no idea. Maybe Zetsu died, so he turned his body into a mask.

    Re: What's the point of Obito's mask?

    Really? I mean, there is ALWAYS the possibility that Obito took MADARA's name and used the power associated with the said name to achieve his goals....and by wearing the mask there wouldn't be many people who would deny it, since there are people such as Oonoki who would recognize that Obito is not indeed Madara..

    This

    Obviously he can't pretend to be Madara with his young face. Also everyone in Konaha would have recognized him immediately.

    Re: What's the point of Obito's mask?

    He didn't care about his past life anymore, so I suppose that he didn't want other people's emotions to be involved in his fights. Also he wanted to carry on Madara's ideals, which wouldn't of been plasiable had people of seen his face.

    Re: What's the point of Obito's mask?

    1. He was pretending to be Madara. Madara's name was fear enough to get his ideals going and stimulate this war.
    2. That Zetsu that was on his body has a mind of it's own. Less efficient than him being in control of his own body.
    3. This was likely a plot device that Kishimoto made to just give us readers interest. We saw Obito, and our curiosity after Kakashi Gaiden and seeing Tobi for the first time after Sasori died gave birth to a billion theories a week for about eight years. It kept us interested. Now we finally know it, and as mad as people got, they got more intense into this manga.

    Re: What's the point of Obito's mask?

    because if he didn't wield the mask, and went around calling himself madara, no one would believe him because they'd notice that it's just some young guy
