So kakashi and rin were supposed to be fighting some mist ninja. Right now the current consensus on NB is that either one or both of them are zetsu clones (and trust me, I know not everyone agrees but just chill, thats not what we're here to discuss).
So what about these mist ninja that are attacking. the manga hasnt shown us anyone except kakashi and rin.
Q1:do you think these mist ninja really exist, or are they a part of a lie/genjutsu/more zetsu clones
Q2:Is there a specific mist ninja that you are aware of that could have an ability that could have an impact on what obito saw.
Q3:Im familiar, but not an expert, with the timeline at this point in the series. was madara/obito/zetsu manipulating the mizukage at this time?
let me know what you think, im trying to see if there is an alternate theory here to develope
