Re: The Ones Who Know Everything - Hokages
gaining genetic material doesn't mean one gains memories. All Kabuto got from Orochimaru's DNA is simply the physical genetic traits/chakra Orochimaru had.

The Hokages were all sealed, and Kabuto was unaware of the Reverse Reaper Seal; therefore, he did not aquire them. Also, it required self sacrifice, and Kabuto working on his own had no one to collaborate with in order to achieve this feat. If the Uchiha Shrine was neccisary, he may not have had the knowledge to open it, or he may not have had a sharingan needed to open it.
