In the Episode 391 of Shippuden, Reanimated Madara gets his own real body by forcing Obito via Black Zetsu to use the Rinne Rebirth Jutsu.

Similar to Nagato at the end of Pain arc fight, Why didn't Obito die since he used the same Jutsu as Nagato.

The wiki clearly states in exchange of own life, the Jutsu is performed.

Can anyone explain this?

  • I think Nagato died because he used all of his chakra and couldn't handle it but obito did survive even using rinne rebirth jutsu and tail beast extraction maybe it is due to fact that he attached himself to white zetsu which contains hashirama cell so he lived longer or it's just a plot hole. – Ch.Siva Ram Kishore Jun 15 '18 at 3:14
  • Konan mentions that he will die due to low chakra but the wiki specifically says that "in exchange for the user's life" then it must be a plot hole. Whatever that can't be explained always links up to Hashirama or his cells. – Bej Jun 15 '18 at 5:17
  • One thing to remember is that the wiki can be wrong and I would take what happens in the series over what is written on the wiki. – Joe W Jun 18 '18 at 23:36

In Chapter 657, right after Madara is brought back to life using the Rinne Rebirth jutsu, the scene moves to the Kamui dimension, where Zetsu confronts Kakashi, Minato, and a fatigued Obito.

Zetsu explicitly stated that Obito will die from using the jutsu. And then,

So Black Zetsu was the reason Obito was able to postpone his unavoidable death.

You don't die after using the Rinnegan Rebirth-if you remember correctly, Pain used the Rinnegan Rebirth too. Konan said that it would exhaust and possibly, kill him. So basically the art of Rinnegan Rebirth is not a new life in exchange for another one-its a justu which takes an enormous amount of chakra. You could die because of the exhaustion though. An example of this is that Nagato revived a whole freaking village while Obito just revived Madara Uchiha. Which should see a difference in terms of chakra

  • Can you provide any sources for this (chapter or episode number, etc.)? – kuwaly Jun 22 '18 at 17:55
  • Naruto Vs Pain-Naruto confronts him at his hidey hole. – GK A Jun 22 '18 at 17:56
  • It's clearly stated that the jutsu is devised at the cost of the user's life. – Ero Sɘnnin Jun 22 '18 at 19:39
  • Again,it's the exhaustion you die from,not the sacrifice.Your wrongly interpreting what's stated. – GK A Jun 23 '18 at 11:07
  • Black Zetsu was giving Obito chakra to prolong his death. – GK A Jun 23 '18 at 11:12
