Some intresting things have popped up about the uzumaki clan. This just thread to disscuss what you think about the Uzumaki's clan past and future impact on the manga.
I have some thoughts about them and why they were possibly feared.
- We are told Uzumaki Mito had the abilty to Sense hostiilly, this goes far bejond chakra sensing ninja and even emotion sensing skills with the byugan as they pickup fine changes in the chakra network and assiaiote that to a emotion. I'll be intrested to know later on how this actually works, kishi uses chakra to explain everyting in his work but on this chakra seems to not play a part at all. Since the Fox is Malice itself and can revive itself in areas of great hostiilly it seems totally logical now that this sensing skill is a by product of being the fox's host. Dam so simple in concept yet so brilliant.
- Also Kushina had those speical chakra chains used to restrain the Fox.
- We also know after the raikage meeting with the Naruto he assumed that Kushina was one to teach Minato the death god sealing ritual. Also the trade mark swirl left behind on the user seems to be a relation to the uzumaki clan. Not to mention Uzumaki Kushina did say she taught the forth hokage some sealing techniques who incidentally was the first person we saw use this technique.
- Also that diamond shape sealing mark on Senju tsunade and Uzumakii Mito(Senju Tsunade's grandmother), Senju Tsunade uses this to seal away chakra in her body to use in a time of need eg.., pain wipe out village for example. Obviously sealing nature relating to the uzumaki's clan speciality once again.
I have noticed a patterm regarding the uzumaki clan apart from their sealing speicality.
The fox seems to affect each uzumaki clan member differently. The hostiltiy sensing skill came about in reponse to the fox's powers, Naruto didn't use this until now. So I'm rulling out anything unquie to the uzumaki clan as whole. Same deal with Kushina's special chakra chains Nartuo doesn't seem to be able to use this either so again I'm rulling out anything unquie to the uzumaki clan as whole again. Its like how not everyone in the senju clan got wood jutsu for example.
So I think this is a foreshowing of why the uzumaki clan were feared, they had rare powers on an individual level. Things that weren't confined to what a clan whole would share as whole like a sharingan for example.
If there were several unqiue powers in the one clan on top of their haxed sealing techniques like the death god seal I can see why they were feared and wiped out.
Also while back I made thread about of a secert abilty Naruto has way before we heard anything about Uzumaki clan, worth alook if you intrested. http://www.mangashare.com/forums/thr...secert-ability
I also think there will be a Yin/Yang interaction with this clan later on with regards to "that jutsu" see my Yin/Yang chakra manipulation thread, the conclusion part. http://www.mangashare.com/forums/thr...a-manipulation
