Re: Tobi/ObitoTheories: What, why and how and then some
okay children! heres my take on this whole thing from the past few chapters. tbh, i admit, i was one of the people that didnt beleive that tobi was obito, and ofcourse with great himiliation, i was wrong, along with many others and those who still think it isnt obito, or some lad using orochimarus jutsu to take over obito's body. thats just a bit too farfetched at this point. so, from reading the end of the latest chapter i immediately pieced everything together and now come up with a solid theory! here goes...
so first of all we all question obito being tobi because of all these things he has supposedly done in the past and everything he knows, such as, being the one who convinced yahiko to form akatsuki and "giving" nagato the rinnegan and being the orchestrator of the 9 tails attack. So! heres what i think. i reckon, that all the stuff about yahiko and nagato that he says was a lie and at the same time true. If you think about it, we never actually get any proof that obito was the one who was behind it all besides his word. no flashbacks, no nothing. So, i reckon that the Real Madara was actually behind those claims. he made yahiko form akatsuki, he "gave" nagato the rinnegan by unknown means (yous can discuss that theory among yourselves, i originally thought obito might have given nagato madaras eyes but ive dropped that theory due to madara still having his eyes during his elder days) and intended to use nagato again in the future. So now we get to the Obito part. As you may have seen at the end of the last chapter, obito was rapped up and saved from his encounter with the dirty big rocks ontop of him by an old man who possesses the sharingan. Anyone who has common sense would realise that that old man was madara uchiha as an elderly. I beleive he saved Obito, and then after his wounds had been healed, he manipulated obito into joining his cause. (Havent really figured out how yet, maybe rins death and the realisation that reality is not worth livinig if she's dead caused him to drastically change his ways, i dunno, you guys can decide) and then was trained by Madara so that he may be able to do his bidding such as controlling the mizukage (this one may have been madara, although i dont think so, as kisame, remembered obitos face when he showed him)and taking control of the 9 tails (yes i realise that the time frame of these events would mean that obito is only 16-17, but he's an uchiha. If sasuke can become almost as strong as itachi in 2 years, im sure obito can learn to control the fox in the same time frame). Why? because madara uchiha at this point is 100 years old and too old to do any of this shit so he got someone else to do it for him, and if anyone asks, hes madara uchiha himself. So, aware of his own mortality, madara set out a plan for obito to follow, which included taking control of akatsuki under the alias of madara uchiha (because nagato probably wouldnt have followed him if he wasn't and not to mention he was armed with all the history of madara uchiha from the time he spent with him), capture the 9 tailed beasts and then when the time would come, obito would have nagato revive madara to his prime, so that he would be strong again. he would then take control of the 10 tails and become its jinchuuriki and activate infinite tsukiomi. DAMN IM GOOD!
The unfortunate truth is...Tobi, the main antagonist of the second half of the naruto series turns out to be nothing more then a pawn. and it turns out madara uchiha IS behind it all!
So thats my theory, which to me seems to be the most likely as it possesses next to no plot holes. If i did, feel free to point them out and im confident i'll be able to answer them!
