Kabuto used Yamato's power during the war to strengthen the Zetsu army. Will Yamato be rescued? Or will Kabuto kill him after he's done experimenting on him?

  • I don't know if there's any way to know this until more of the series comes out. We can't see the future.

  • Unless Kishi gives some hints or atleast shows whether he's still alive or not, there can be no answer to it. Unfortunately, it is going to be a mere speculation if there is going to be an answer for this.

Yamato was controlled by spiral zetsu (tobi) just before the infinite tsukuyomi. Since Yamato and zetsu both know wood release, their powers combined was enough to stop the Third Hokage with "Sage Art Wood Release: True Several Thousand Hands".

Chapter 677 Chapter 677
Episode 426 Episode 426

From the final episode of the Naruto canon storyline, 479, we see that Yamato was released from the Infinite Tsukuyomi by Naruto and Sasuke. Afterwards, the God Tree was cut down, so the spiral zetsu that was controlling Yamato decomposed.

Yay he's alive!

  • And so he's not dead. And Kabuto won't kill him since he was turned to the good side by Itachi. Jul 5, 2016 at 12:22

Although it is not revealed whether Yamato is dead or not, or will he be rescued or not, it did mention that he is suspended opposite to Hashirama's clone for future use. We still have to wait. I am optimistic that he would come back, since he is one of the major supporting characters of the series. From Yamato's wiki page:

Kabuto escapes to the Mountains' Graveyard where he and Tobi gather information from Yamato about the Allied Shinobi Forces. Kabuto also studies Hashirama's DNA within Yamato to strengthen the White Zetsu Army. Rather than kill Yamato when he has fulfilled his usefulness, they suspend him opposite Hashirama's clone for future use.

At some point during the war, his body was encased within Tobi, seemingly using Yamato's altered DNA to strengthen its own Wood Release. After Madara Uchiha activated his Infinite Tsukuyomi, Yamato was freed from within Tobi's body in an unconscious state, as he had no further use for Tobi. He was then immediately caught in the genjutsu.

Yamato being used to strengthen the White Zetsu Army.

Yamatos alive because on boruto he is seen spying on Orochimaru when Naruto and Sasuke go to confront Orochimaru about Shin
