Why bring a knife to a gun fight? Well, it’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Kunais are one of the many tools shinobi have at their disposal. While it may seem like a useless weapon at first glance, there have been instances in the series in which the use of a kunai have been proven quite useful. Close Range If I ...

This has to do with the concept of the Big 3. For a little bit of background on what the concept of the big 3 is you can take a look at What phenomenon are at play such that the "Big Four" are limited to four and not a growing list?. With the ending of Naruto in sight at the time, and the great reception of Boku no Hero Academia (BNHA) at the ...

The flames of the Amaterasu are inextinguishable by ordinary means and once any organism is caught in it, they will either have to sacrifice that body part, absorb the entire Jutsu (if they posses Rinnengan related abilities), or seal the flames away. In the case of a Snake summon, it could most definitely shed its skin and easily escape the flames of the ...

There is information about him, albeit his name was never mentioned. In Itachi Shinden: Book of Bright Light “My dad died in Nine Tails’s attack.” .. “Oh! My dad’s not an Uchiha. My mom’s Uchiha. After my dad died, we came back to the clan, and I became an Uchiha, too,” Izumi told him, as if reading his mind. ...

Kunai were historical tools/weapons used by ninja in Japan, though their uses have been expanded/fictionalized in Naruto. I think in Naruto, they function as versatile long-distance and close-range weapons that can be used even if someone is low on chakra or trying not to attract attention. One thing to also keep in mind is that Naruto and Sasuke (and the ...

If we follow the storyline, I would say this is not logically and also it is impossible to achieve it. Here is the reason why it is impossible to perform it. Perform Shadow Clone Jutsu and Tsukuyomi will cost a lot chakra and also have it's side effect. Using Genjutsu especially Tsukuyomi, is really consume a lot chakra and also hurt your body as well....

At the time of the chunin exams, Konoha was unaware the Sound Village was built by Orochimaru. While Kabuto was infiltrating the exams as a Konoha genin, he mentioned the village was quite young and little was known about it. Naruto Chapter 39 As for why the sound genin were in Konoha, the chunin exams became open to all villages as a result of the ...

Over-reliance and Predictability If the opponent knows that Hiraishin no Jutsu allows the user to teleport to marked kunai and area, it would be "easily" countered. Minato vs Raikage: if Raikage also knew that Minato left his mark on Bee, he (Raikage) could instantly move to Bee (at this point Raikage already spotted almost all of Minato's kunai) and ...

Naruto first manifested a one-tail chakra in manga Chapter 231, which is Episode 133 A Plea from a Friend in the anime. This is during Naruto and Sasuke's fight as Naruto tries to stop Sasuke from leaving the village. If I recall correctly, there were no other similar occurrences preceding this.

Because he actually didn't want them. He was trying to relay that information to Sasuke before his death. He gave that information about EMS to Sasuke so that Sasuke could obtain EMS after his death if he wanted. Plus Itachi was on the verge of blindness. So even if Sasuke had normal sharingan Itachi could at least have sight, that's a good excuse.

If the Jinchuuriki and their tailed beast work together they can basically break every genjutsu put upon them since one of the counters against genjutus is to have the victim's chakra flow disrupted. This makes them mostly immune to them. A victim's chakra flow, if disrupted enough, can break the caster's influence. This "Genjutsu Dissipation" (幻術解, ...

Because there are only two known users of the Dead Demon Consuming Seal (also called as Sealing Jutsu: Reaper Death Seal): Hiruzen Sarutobi and Minato Namikaze, and the jutsu can be countered. While something like this could probably be done: Use Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation to resurrect Minato and Sarutobi They, then, use Dead Demon Consuming ...

The substitution jutsu is still used constantly, but as the series progressed and the strength of the characters increased it became more practical to use clones instead as clones serve the same purpose and more. There are notable examples of the substitution jutsu at the end of the series. Kakashi using it against Obito in their final fight Killer Bee ...

The main reason is simply because they did not know he materialized when he "dissapeared". The first time that the Eight man squad ran into tobi, Kakashi along with everyone else hypothesized hat he could erase himself from existence. What your missing out is, the only reason why someone would try to attack him during that split time frame is if they ...

Firstly, lets make a correction. Naruto learned the Summoning Jutsu, not before the exam, but only before the third round, prior to his fight with Neji. So he would have only had one opportunity to use the Jutsu during the exams, during his fight with Neji. It is never EXPLICITLY stated, as far as I know, why Naruto didn't use Summoning Jutsu to summon ...

I would like to point out; we have no idea how old Shisui was when he graduated from the Academy. At the time, the average age was nine (see Obito Uchiha and Rin Nohara). We don't know whether or not Shisui graduated early. That plays a key deciding factor here, considering he met Itachi approximately two or three years after he graduated. If he graduated ...

Is Kurama more powerful than Susanoo? Yes, it is. From the wiki, Even with half its strength, it could overpower Obito's controlled tailed beasts, smash Madara's senjutsu-enhanced Susanoo with a tail, and with the Six Paths Chakra, battle Sasuke's Tailed Beast-enhanced Complete Body — Susanoo. That is just with roughly half its strength. At full ...

I can't seem to find any official information as to where the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style originated or was based on. However, here's a theory. As you may know, Naruto has many influences from Buddhism and Hinduism: the Multiple Lotus Nonself Connected Cannons, The Six Paths of Pain, Formation of Ten Thousand Snakes and the Chakra, to name a few, were ...

I am pretty sure Kakashi's code name was never revealed or touched upon as I've seen pretty much the entire series. Fanfics do have names such as Hound but nothing shows that I was ever mentioned in the anime or manga or even any light novel. Kishimoto Sensei might've answered a question in an interview (highly unlikely though) but I haven't seen any ...

Orochimaru used the bodies of Zaku and Kin to summon the Hokage. The jutsu basically recreates the body of the reincarnated person at the time of their death using the body of the sacrifice. To actually perform the Impure World Reincarnation, the DNA of the person to be reincarnated is smeared on a special scroll. Once the scroll is activated, the remains ...

If its only the manga series, then the reading order would be according to the release date: Naruto (72 Volumes) Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (1 Volume) Boruto: Naruto Next Generations (On-going) A Redditor also posted a chronological order guide including the light novels, movies, side stories, etc. You can check it out here.

Inshort technically it is possible (see 3rd point for exact process) As I mentioned in my comment not enough information is available as limited use of Kamui was seen only towards the end of the series however following conclusions can be drawn- Using Kamui is the only way to travel to and from its dimension. This means that targets transferred there are ...

Tobi was not able to awaken the Rinnegan despite having both Uchiha and Senju DNA because he was missing a certain step in the evolution, and that is, the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. The evolution of the Sharingan involves firstly awakening the Mangekyo, then after a combination with another family members Mangekyo, it evolves to an Eternal mangekyo ...

Name of the song is: Shippuu Kumikyoku ( Hurricane Suite ) Artist: Yasuharu Takanashi Album:Naruto Shippuden OST 1 - Track 28 - The main problem is that exactly version of the song used in anime (with women vocals) is very hard to find (maybe impossible), but you can try it, if you want, and have time.. I managed to find one, only choir without ...

Short answer : No. First : you should consider all chakra and memories in shadow clone will return to owner of shadow so you can collect chakra with your shadow clones. Second : you should consider genjutsu consume a lot of chakra so as it's clear you can't increase your chakra by the way that you could increase with your shadow clones. Three : when you are ...

Aside from his ability to summon toads, Konohamaru is also capable of summoning a Monkey named Enra, who from the looks of it is kin to the Monkey King Enma. This is seen in Boruto Episode 119 where

The healing ability dosen't come from the Six Paths Sage Mode, but from the yang seal on Naruto's hand. Once Kaguya was sealed, the mark went away, and so did his ability to heal things. You'll notice that, when healing Guy, a seal looking like the sun mark is left over Guy's eighth chakra gate.

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.

Minato's Flying Thunder God Techniqie allows him to teleport to any location which he has previously marked with a hand seal (either on a kunai or with his hand).
