Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 599 Discussion and 600 Predictions
Allow me to personally apologize to all the people that got scolded for believein it to be Obito.
Reasons i didn't think it was obito:
3. Lack of motive
4. Known troll
5. Too obvious
I'll check the news for mass suicides and riots in Japan now. But if you think about it...Obito is such a surprise BECAUSE....it was so pushed that most of us EXPECTED it to not be him. Then when it was proven, it was a double subversion of a twist, getting us from behind. Kishi, you sly dog. Now there's still the chance that it really is just Obito's body, and it's being controlled by someone else, but here is what I think happened (Wiki helped me formulate this):
Madara fights Hashirama. Loses. Lives, barely, but has DNA. Goes into hiding and cultivates Hashi clone which helps spawn Zetsu. Plus he extends his own life. Begins collecting sharingan in secret. Develops Rinnegan and gives it to Nagato, an Uzumaki. Also helps Yahiko form Akatsuki. Replaces his eyes with sharingan and midwipes him from their memory. Goes on to control Mizukage and make Bloody Mist.(explains timeline) Meanwhile, Zetsu is watching Minato for a chance at his wife to get back Kyubi. Watches Obito fall. Zetsu saves him and Madara takes interest. Madara begins training him in the ways of the sharingan, about the Uchiha and history. Sparks hate in Obito. (motive) Together, they form the alias "Tobi" and take turns at it. (explains hair). Madara tells Obito how to summon Bijuu and tells him to retrieve 9 Tails. obito fails, and comes back, where Zetsu fixes him up again (explains white goop). Madara helps Itachi exterminate Uchiha. Madara dies (perhaps he let Obito kill him). Obito takes his knowledge and uses it to convince everyone he's Madara. and the rest is history. The only thing NOT explainable is how he said he awakened Rinnegan shortly before his death. But i think for the most part this is how it went down. Tobi was never just 1 person. Oh, btw, i didn't read the entire thread, so if this is similar to someone elses theory, great minds think alike.
