This has been stuck in my head for too long; I've used the search bar and no one else has made a thread on the subject
,so I'd appreciate if no accusations of plagiarism is made.
Thank you very much to all who take the time to read.
It is highly possible (Though not assured) that Hashirama will come back to life, it sounds a little crazy I know, I intend to give you strong evidence as to how he can return to life.
What technique can bring him back to life?
Zetsu's clones displayed the ability to absorb and integrate organisms of the same genetic structure within itself, to make a better, stronger being.
I don't need to remind you that Zetsu are composed of 100% Hashirama DNA.
As such, we can infer that Hashirama has the same capabilities.
To reinforce this; Obito appears to have used a similar technique to replace the various limbs he has lost over the years:
And there is no reason to suggest why an Edo Hashirama can't use a technique.
What is the relevance of this technique?
Hashirama's mindless living clone
; in one way or another I think this will become very relevant in some form (I'll go into this later on in the thread.)
All Zetsu originated from the very same tree that gave life to this clone; the exception was that the Zetsu spawned had a brain. Intelligence. Which Hashirama's clone lacks.
Surely if a Zetsu (Composed of Hashirama's DNA and proven to be able to use the merge technique.) sacrificed Edo Hashirama, (A soul and brain with no living body) were to use this technique on the clone (Which is a mindless, soulless husk.) this would bring him back to life.
In Naruto: Body + Soul + Intelligence = living being, am I right? If so, this could possibly be a means to bring Hashirama back to life.
How will he even know about the clone?
Orochimaru has all of Kabuto's information, including the location of the hideout, and the clone.
He could revive Hashirama after the war is over?
Maybe I'm wrong, maybe Orochimaru absorbs the clone and becomes as strong as Hashirama in his prime? Solidifying his place as a possible final antagonist? After all, his body is as strong as a Zetsu right now; one sniff of Naruto's Yin chakra and it's "Tree Powers activate" for Orochimaru.
There is one other candidate for reaching Hashirama's level:
With Kabuto out of the picture, there is no one to administer the Mokuton suppression serum to keep him under raps; and Yamato's DNA was completely assimilated by Hashirama's when he was a kid.
He is bound to wake up soon, Kishimoto won't forget about the three people in that cave (I hope).
Either way, he is bound to have dialogue with Hashirama in some form or another (Possibly the Zetsu too?) as Hashirama essentially makes him who he is
Plus he is literally right
Sorry, I never expected it to be so long, It took me a while to make, but I'd like to hear your feedback.
Who is more likely to absorb the clone?
