(DrProof) Orochimaru's Body Transfer Jutsu Shortened.
My theory on this subject is that Orochimaru's Body Transfer Technique was shortened in the restrictions of it's 3 year limitations. Why exactly? Senju DNA. Indeed, that is the cause as Senju DNA shortens time limitations on techniques that require a restriction of waiting (Danzo using Kotoamatsukami twice within a short period of time in which it usually takes a decade to prepare itself again). But how exactly did Orochimaru obtain Hashirama's DNA cells, and why is his Body Transfer Jutsu shortened? Here's a couple of theories..
- Hashirama Senju's DNA seem to shorten the users time restrictions drastically (seen with Danzo's Kotoamatsukami situation).
- Orochimaru had obtained Hashirama's DNA when he had used his Body Transfer Jutsu on 1 of the 6 Zetsu clones.
- Danzo's Kotoamatsukami technique's time restriction was shortened from a Decade (10 years) to most likely within a single day or less, Orochimaru's Body Transfer Jutsu would reasonably be around that range as well.
- Orochimaru's Body Transferring Jutsu was never SUCCESSFUL when attempted on Sasuke, Sasuke had absorbed Orochimaru not the other way around; this implies Orochimaru could have still used the technique as it wasn't completed, and he hadn't claimed his new body.
Orochimaru had acquired Hashirama's DNA because he had Body Transferred into 1 of the 6 Zetsu Clones (Orochimaru had performed this act when he had cut his own stomach along with the Shinigami's forcing him to retrieve a new body) in which the Zetsu were placed on Sasuke to keep information about his whereabouts and/or what his motives were at the time. You may be wondering as to how Orochimaru had performed the Body Transfer Technique on the Zetsu when he had used it specifically on Sasuke, however it wasn't successful, giving me the impression that since the Body Transferring Jutsu wasn't completed, but was turned against Orochimaru himself Sasuke was using the technique directly instead of Orochimaru meaning that Orochimaru had no control over the situation. Basically I'm implying that Orochimaru never got the duration restrictions due to Sasuke hijacking the jutsu.
- Orochimaru's Body Transferring Jutsu was shortened from a 3 year restriction to an (x) amount of hours/days (probably around the same duration to that of Danzo's Kotoamatsukami).
- Since Orochimaru possess Hashirama's DNA this factor directly complements the said conclusion above.
- Orochimaru had Body Transferred into 1 of the 6 Zetsu Clones planted on Sasuke's body to keep notes on his whereabouts/motives.
- Orochimaru's Body Transferring Technique 3 year time restriction was never activated to due Sasuke hijacking the jutsu entirely, and overpowering Orochimaru.
