Re: Naruto Manga 490 Discussion and 491 Predictions
Your quite true about that, but what everyone is taking into mind is Madara's reaction and Kabuto's response to that reaction. Madara was disturbed and confused on how Kabuto had w/e corpse inside that unknown casket. Before you can use edo tensai, Kabuto must have the body. For example, to summon Itachi, Kabuto requires Itachis body so Itachi's spirit can be pulled from the world of the dead and forced back into the ody it belongs to. So, obviously the body he summoned is that of a body one, that being Tobi/Madara, thought was impossible to find/detect. I'm sure if Tobi were Madara, but in a different body or the shadow of his former body, then the true body of Madara was supposed to be either hidden and only Tobi knows or completely destroyed, raising speculation to Tobi on how the hell did you manage to get my own body when I thought it was gone myself. Now, if Tobi weren't really Madara and using Madara's name, then Kabuto having the true body of Madara can make the nations take Tobi less seriously. Who do you think the Kages would fear more, Madara or some random Uchiha such as Obito if it were him? Obviously Madara as the alliace would strike more fear and allow Nations to take him more seriously as well as screw up in the fact of believing he were Madara.

Madara relies on the King of Hell Statue to hold the tailed-beasts. Rikudo could easily dispell the statue, sealing it from Madara and possibly releasing the tailed beasts. Rikudo overall would just put an end to Madara's plans actually.
But, I didn't mention Kabuto's response. He told Tobi to not worry, he hasn't told a single person about that body. That could inform us that A.) Tobi is either not Madara, Kabuto knows the truth or B.) Tobi is Madara but just the shadow, the Tobi's body was hidden or destroyed entirely, cause the state of Tobi's fear on how Kabuto found it. Also, Kabuto responed "oh, you know..." when Tobi asked "how?". That shows me the body could have had protection on it, and only Madara/Tobi knows how to remove them. If Kabuto removed them, that shows Kabuto's capabilities and shows Madara how Kabuto got the body, with extreme powers possibly.
