@sebast_allen: @princearagorn1: That's a good point honestly, he kinda already has Sasuke beat at this point. But that's why I put maybe they both have to fuse to become the SOSP (that solves the Uchiha half of the life force).
I also had a little hunch that Sasuke would somehow awaken a rinnegan. Although idk how even that would make things.
@blackwolf0925 yeah someone else says the same thing. I never really read that, or spoke with anyone about it, before. Then again comicvine is my first time being active on forums sooo.
And also a countermeasure, just in case this actually ends up being right, so I can prove (IN WRITING) that I thought of this (probably) first :)
So obviously I'm implying that Naruto will transform into the SOSP. Okay, maybe not exactly, but quite the same one that Obito recently became. Now, while that may not be the most absurd thing to hypothesize, what I really want to highlight is how I believe it will happen.
Simply put: with the Senju life force that he possesses (thanks to Uzumaki heritage) he has one half of the equation taken care of. While I am not quite sure how he will be (cleverly) given/bestowed/granted/blessed with Uchiha life force, I know the bijuus will play a huge role here (One subpoint would be to mention that, although I don't know in what form or fashion, this is where Sasuke's role becomes vital.). We all know how close Naruto and the tailed beasts have become up until this point: from the very first time he met them all, to learning each individual name, to saving them from Obito's rinnegan control as he promised, to finally releasing them from Obito's Sage of Six Paths form. Not to mention that he sings their name in his Japanese, elementary style sing-along every episode this season. Nonetheless, my hypothesis is that Naruto (Senju + Uchiha) will somehow, by necessity of course, fuse his essence with that of each tailed beast (who willingly do so--since they luv him so much), combining all of their chakras and gaining more strength than individually attainable, all to recreate the next Sage of the Six Paths.
That's basically the gist of my theory. It's pretty intuitive, but I wanted some outside minds to think about it.
Naruto's Sejnu life force (how much? how strong?).
Uchiha life force (where, or who, will it come from? will Sasuke and Naruto fuse?).
Killer Bee and the Hachibi (how will the eight tails fuse? will Bee lose his connection?).
other than that akatsuki is mainly trash/fodder for gotei 13... only other one i see as a threat is madera and kabuto... summoning an nigh endless army of the undead vs yamamotos zanka no tachi... south i think it was. the one where he summoned those skeleton things. that would be unique to see
or maderas... well anything. hes also, albeit relativly low, god tier. BFR? how about BFR, battle field RESET. those asteroids he summons down would be too much to cut through for anyone other than Yammamoto and his bankai. even kenpachi cant cut something that huge. much less two of them. Oh did I forget to mention, Maderas final form would most definetly be:
rinnengan means no energy/elemental projection technique will work on Madera. meaning: Yammamotos fire, Soi Fongs explosion, Komamuras entire bankai itself, Aizens super ceros, Toshiros ice. ALL of it would be absorbed and nullified by Rinnengan.
Kakuzus only redeeming quality was that he was psuedo immortal and is still fodder, deidera might pose a threat if he keeps blowing himself and everything else around him to dust with his final art technique. Sasori... why was he akatsuki again? oh right the country take over thing... meh
itachi and nagato.
rinnengan and EMS... Tsukiyomi mind rape, susanoo troll defense, ameterasu burning even fire itself. rinnengan... anything troll. and izanami/izanagi reality hax.
Actually Im most curious about ameterasu vs zanka no tachi... Supernatural flames vs the Sun. a rather unique match? please someone debate with me on this specifically.
