After the Fourth Great Ninja War, both Naruto and Sasuke lost an arm and Might Guy lost his legs (after awakening 8 gates). Tsunade and the team then built arms for Sasuke/Naruto using Hashirama cells.

Why didn't they chop Guy's legs and put Hashirama legs as well? Is it because Hashirama cells are not compatible?

  • The same reason why the hashirama cells won't becomes trees when Naruto uses kurama chakra (plot holes) – Ch.Siva Ram Kishore Jul 11 '18 at 3:38
  • I don't think that his problem is in the legs, but rather in his spine... Replacing them wouldn't work. And I think creating a spinal cord replacement might be a little trickier. – guilofrano Jul 12 '18 at 12:09
  • @Ch.SivaRamKishore Zetsu became trees when they died due to Naruto's abundant yang energy from Kurama's Yang half. Naruto not only resolved that issue after the war, but he also is still alive and able to control the chakra preventing it from turning into a tree. That would also be why Danzo didn't turn into a tree, and then he did, because he was so weak he couldn't control his chakra and so lost control of the arm. – Ryan Feb 13 '19 at 4:37
  • Hashirama, reason for all plotholes ;-) – Bej Feb 26 '19 at 12:35
  • As I understand it was just just the one leg that got messed up and he didn't lose either entirely. – IG_42 Mar 4 '19 at 0:09

So why does Tsunade still not create a leg for Might Guy?
If we want to create a leg for Might Guy, this mean that his body need to strong enough to handle the Hashirama Cells. Implemented the Hashirama Cells have his own risk. Currently Might Guy's body is not compatible with the Hashirama Cells because his currently body is not strong as before. If we force Might Guy to implement the Hashirama Cells, the consequences will be same like Danzo.

Just like @TheTrue7thHokage said, Might Guy's body was totally destroyed even almost die after the fight with Madara, unlikely Sasuke and Naruto. (Only their hands gone not the entire body.)

Remember Danzo this person? His body also have implemented the Hashirama Cells but in the fight between Danzo and Sasuke, He need to cut off his own arm in order to not let the cells devour Danzo. At this state, Danzo is very already weaken.

As you can see the red rectangle mark I have put, this is the explanation why Might Guy until now do not have his legs back. They scare this case will happen on Might Guy.

Ok now let's talk about Naruto, Why does he can handle the Hashirama Cells?
At this state, Naruto is a very strong person already, he got his Kurama's power, have the Six Path Power and also know how to use Sage mode. Obviously he is stronger than anyone in that world. So of course his body can sustain the cells.


Tsunade could not fix Guy’s legs because his body and his nerves were destroyed from fighting with Madara. Guy's body was really damaged and way worse than Sasuke and Naruto's damage.

There is a certain point where if it's reached, then there is no going back from it, plus the Uzumaki clan has special healing powers, for example Karin.

But Sasuke on the other hand, didn't want to have his body healed, because it would feel like his sins are being forgiven with no consequences, especially after he did a lot of bad things to the Hidden Leaf Village.

  • basically they weren't able to do it because might guy destroyed his leg, but Naruto's and Sasuke's hands were cut off; not ripped off. – The True 7th Hokage Feb 11 '19 at 10:02

    That would make less sense, because having Guy get his legs amputated and then replaced with new ones would completely skip over the damage by removing it entirely. Rather the problem has to be something besides damage, like not being able to accept a Hashirama transplant. – Ryan Feb 13 '19 at 4:32
