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 ...

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....

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. ...

The Byakugan actually originated from the Ōtsutsuki Clan. As revealed in Chapter 671 and as stated in the wiki, the Byakugan originated from the Ōtsutsuki Clan and was later inherited by their distant descendants, the Hyūga Clan. Outside the leaf village, I can only recall Ao as the known possessor of the Byakugan but it should be noted that this was ...

He has extracted the Bijuus with one to seven tails but the former Jinchuuriki of the Ichibi - Gaara - is still alive. Another reason is that he is controlling them using the Six Paths of Pain an Outer Path technique that allows a Rinnegan user to manipulate up to six bodies as though they are their own. Wiki

Not exactly, Naruto's 8 Trigram seal was placed onto him by the Fourth Hokage in order to seal the Nine-Tails inside of him. The 5 pronged seal you're referring to was placed onto him by Orochimaru in Ch 49 during Squad 7's confrontation with him in the forest of death during the Chunin exam. As we see, Orochimaru is in the midst of his mission to ...

For me, not entirely. If we base our definition of pacifist or pacifism from Wikipedia, we can read the following: Pacifism is opposition to war, militarism or violence. Yes, Itachi was indeed opposed to war and this was confirmed canonically. In Chapter 400, Madara explains that after Itachi witnessed the Third Great Ninja War: That trauma made ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The place that we see is within Naruto's subconsciousness and its as a result of the Eight Tetragram pattern which is the sealing formula used by Minato to seal the Nine tails within Naruto. According to the Wiki, When Naruto wants to speak to the Nine-Tails, he enters a subconscious plane that resembles an underground complex, with pipes running along ...

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 ...

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 ...

Minato did not want to do everything on his own - he was forced to do everything on his own. During the Konoha attack, Minato was performing his duties as: A husband/father, who was protecting his family The Hokage, who was protecting the village Shortly after Minato teleported the Nine Tails away from the village, he wanted to contact Hiruzen to inform ...

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 ...

He needed a break! An excerpt from an interview he did at New York Comic Con (per Anime News Network): Christopher Butcher: 72 volumes of Naruto. Did the editors of Shonen Jump want you to keep going? Some of the Shonen Jump series go for a hundred volumes or two hundred volumes. Did the editors want you to keep going on Naruto? Masashi ...

Neither Haku or Zabuza were "killed" in the sense you describe. In the same episode you referenced, they were both temporarily immobilized: Haku was immobilized by shielding himself in front of Zabuza when attacking was attempting to strike him with Chidori Zabuza was immobilized after Kakashi successfully hit him with a Chodori. As they were immobilized, ...

Simply using bodies identical to his own would run counter to his obsession to learn every jutsu there is. Consider two of his potential hosts that we saw in the series Kimmimaro and Sasuke. Kimmimaro was the last of the Kaguya clan and the only person left with the ability to use bone techniques making him the only chance for Orochimaru to acquire them ...

It wasn't the fact that Sakumo chose to save his comrades that lead to his disgrace. His decision to abandoned the mission caused the mission to fail, which was supposedly very critical for Konoha for it to succeed. His allies (Konoha and those who he saved) blamed him for the loss, which lead to his suicide. This is covered in Naruto Chapter 240.

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.
