    Itachi sensor type theory

    This theory is is quite simple, basically I believe there is a lot of evidence throughout the manga that suggests that Itachi was a sensor type ninja and I thought I would present it all in this theory to see what people think.

    There are subtle hints of Itachi's impressive senses from very early on. He is able to track and locate Naruto with no apparent challenge. He is also able to recognize Sasuke's presence with his back turned. Now this alone is not enough to say he is a sensor type, it could simple mean that he is an observant ninja and he was able to locate Naruto by following him from a distance. Bear with me though this is just the beginning.

    http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/146/19/

    If one looks closely at the top panel it is evident that Itachi is turning his gaze, he is again the first one to notice a new arrival even though he has his back turned. Kisame does not notice Jiraiya until the Toad has appeared to block his swing but Itachi, who had his back turned, appears to have noticed. Once again this is just a small hint that alone could be simply good observation skills though.

    Here we have another subtle hint to Itachi's extremely high awareness level. He appears to know about the curse seal even though he was not around when Orochimaru gave it to Sasuke. This could simply be a case of him knowing that Orochimaru uses the curse seal and is after Sasuke but that seems like a lot to know considering how long he has been away.

    Another little hint here, Itachi seems to recognize that Jiraiya is casting ninjutsu even though his back is turned and his attention has been on Sasuke.

    Itachi is again the only one with his back turned yet he senses Sasuke's presence even when his parents do not.

    This evidence is of course still not enough to label Itachi a sensor type, but the real evidence comes after the time skip.

    Akatsuki always seems to have relied on Zetsu to be its lookout and find targets. His powers are obviously very well suited for tracking and finding people but often Itachi is aware of things that even Zetsu seems unaware of. Itachi also finds people easily, with no apparent help, that even other skilled trackers and sensors have trouble finding.

    After Sasuke's battle with Deidara he is pronounced to be dead by Zetsu and everyone in Akatsuki is told.

    Itachi is aware that Sasuke is still alive despite of this, something that would probably be impossible to know for sure if he could not sense Sasuke somehow. Now one could assume that this is because Itachi has placed some kind of marker on Sasuke in order to keep an eye on him but Itachi's observations are not limited to locating Sasuke.

    In the search for Itachi arch, Itachi appears before Naruto and manages to locate Naruto's real body with ease even when Naruto has created many shadow clones. This is a level of detection that goes beyond that of perhaps any other character. Even Karin was confused by all of the shadow clones Naruto created but Itachi new exactly where to find the original.

    http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/403/08/

    Itachi also knows that Naruto is alone, it is a very rare thing for Naruto to be alone outside the village. The mere fact that Itachi locates Naruto when he is alone at such a crucial time shows that his senses are extremely good.

    Itachi is also aware of exactly where to find Sasuke and even though Sasuke has Karin and Juugo on his side he is unable to locate Itachi. Itachi finds Sasuke with no challenge at all, he knows exactly where and when to appear before him.

    http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/392/13/

    Itachi is totally blind when Orochimaru shows himself but Itachi is able to detect his presence regardless. Now alone that could just mean that he has good senses in general but when added to the other data it seems very likely to me that Itachi is indeed a sensor.

    Madara claims that Itachi was the only one who was able to discover him. The mere fact that no one else even recognized that Madara was there makes it seem very clear that Itachi was very apt at detecting chakra. No one else even noticed Madara's presence yet Itachi was not only able to detect Madara but uncover his identity.

    Itachi's abilities to located people, and notice things seem to be above that of almost anyone else. Even other sensor types are unable to pick up on things that Itachi seems to. Anyway, I simply made this theory because I noticed this and wanted to see what others think.

    Indeed the strongest plausible factor in your theory is the Madara situation. Sharingan in itself is sort of like a tracking tool, able to percieve what the normla eye cant see. Maybe, due to his ANBU training, he gained some useful awareness abilities. Good digging my friend. Hopefully Kishi will elaborate on Itahi's noticable talents in the future.

    Well done. Well done artifice. And come to think, Zabuza,Kakashi & Sakure have some sort of this ability but is not well developed.

    Indeed, you are right, that is why I waited a long time to come to the conclusion that Itachi may be a sensor type. There are lots of ninjas who have very high observation skills so most of the early examples could have been attributed to that. It was mainly the later examples that really made me start to think that Itachi may have had the abilities of a sensor. I really started to wonder about it when Itachi appears before Naruto and Sasuke, as it seemed very unlikely that he would be able to find them when others were having so much trouble doing the same. Then when Madara mentioned that Itachi was the only one who even noticed his presence, I came to this conclusion.

    Yes, at first I thought that it might just be a case of the sharingan but later on he makes observations without the sharingan being active (such as the part when he notices Sasuke and his parents do not), or he is aware of things that are beyond the normal sharingan powers. For example, when he finds Naruto and Sasuke. Sasuke has the sharingan and is quite skilled with it at that point but even with Karin helping out he cannot locate Itachi, yet Itachi knows exactly where Sasuke is and appears before him. He discovers that Sasuke is alive when he seemed to be dead to most and even finds Naruto's real body amongst many shadow clones, none of those things seem to fall within the powers of the sharingan.

    Still topping awesomeness on top of awesomeness lol! There's no explaining the greatness of Itachi, just accept it :p

    Also you notice right after Kishi introduced the sensory type he added like 20 more sensory types lol!

    Is it also a possibility that Itachi was using Zetsu? It could also explain howZetsu was able to find his and Sasuke's battle at the right time right?

    I considered that but that doesn't really make sense when you consider how he located Naruto. Itachi was acting against Madara when he went to Naruto and gave him some of his power. I really doubt that Zetsu was helping him with that. Also it was Zetsu who said that Sasuke was dead, yet Itachi knew that was not true. Another thing is, Zetsu usually communicates with the other members of Akatsuki in person or through a copy of himself, yet Itachi is usually alone when he appears before his targets. On top of that Madara said that Itachi was able to find him when no one else even noticed his presence, I think it is safe to say that Zetsu had no part in that.

    Im not disputing the other cases of Itachi's talent. Only the cases when he found Naruto and Sasuke. I dont think Zetsu could have been aware of what Itachi did. I dont think he can judge from what he saw that Itachi gave him a power. The communication between Itachi and zetsu could easily have been offscreen. Again not really disputing anything just trying to render all of the possibilities.
