I have this doubt. Why couldn't/didn't anyone try to create a susanoo like chakra armor instead of simple cloaks when it was possible to manipulate chakra flow?
The raikage use lightning chakra cloaks and few others can use chakra mode cloaks to enhance their capabilities. Even taijiutsu users like Shira of the sand covered chakra around his body to create soundless movements. Hyuga clan members could release chakra from their body effectively and use it as an extension of their body(like neji did to cover his blind spot). When naruto initially defeated kurama and took only his chakra, he could form hands from his kurama chakra mode. Shinobi could also shape and direct their chakra like rasengan and twin lion fists or even form chakra threads for controlling objects. So, if somebody could effectively spread chakra around their body and control it like a puppet or something they could form a susanoo without being an uchiha.
Is it impossible or did nobody think of doing something like that?
