Re: (DrProof) Uzumaki Clans Reversal Sealing Mask
Probably the masks were made, in order to keep the actual seals secret. If the sealing techniques were stored in scrolls, any shinobi could steal them. Storing the secrets of the seals in masks, plus placing some sort of unique seal in the actual mask (so you would die from using it), would be a good way of protecting their ancient techniques.
Through time, either traitors of the Uzumaki clan, or by capturing an actual Uzumaki, and have him/her reveal, where these secrets could be found etc., a scroll (ie. Orochimaru's scroll) was made.
I do, however, think a lot of unknown factors are still present on this subject. Too many to conclude anything. First of all, the remaining masks may just be to 'fool' the enemy, which, however, is unlikely since the masks didn't seem to be alike. However, it also seems weird to me, if they were to keep all the masks at one place, but of course, they may have many more than those that were present.
Also do the mask truly undo the seal forever? Or is it just for a shorter amount of time. I mean, Sasuke would be pretty stupid in trusting Orochimaru, by letting him have the 4 kages as puppets. Of course, he just used his body switching technique, so it would be plausible to think, he cannot take Sasukes body for a while anyway, yet Sasuke wont overpower 4 kages with 4 years of training, anyway.
