So there it is, my first and only predicition on how to solve the mistery that is Tobi.
Im posting this now with 2-3 weeks to go until 600 hits, which in my mind will be the
chapter to finally unmask Tobi.
This theory stands now for about 135 chapters(in 462 tobi has the conversation with
naruto during the "Meeting of the 5 Kages") and just needed the final piece of the
puzzle to be completed.
It all begins with a quote from Tobi
"...it is to become complete..."
That quote basically gives us all the intel we need. Tobi desires to be complete.
We already know that his aim is to become the Ten-Tails aka Juubi Jinchuuriki.
But that is merely one of his aims. His ultimate aim would be to become the
reincarnation of the Rikudo Sennin - Sage of the Six Paths.
If we look closely at the info Tobi has given us, we can conclude that
the legacy of the Rikudo Sage was built on 3 pillars of power.
1. The Sage possessed the ultimate Doujutsu, the Rinnegan, which enabled him to use the
six paths' ninjutsu and making him the ruler over life and death itself.
2. The Rikudo-Sennin sealed the Juubi inside himself and thus was able to wield
inconceivable power and made him the bearer of the ultimate chakra being.
3. He possessed the ultimate Body, gifted with life force and physical energy that allowed
him to live an unnatural long life, possibly even centuries in which he tried to bring
peace to the world.
Now that established this, it is safe to say that Tobi and his plan to "become complete"
aims at these 3 pillars of power.
Now lets start with the Rinnegan. It is safe to say that Nagatos Rinnegan was a gift from
Tobi, as he stated to Konan when he took the eyes back from Nagatos corpse.
This really makes me wonder. How was Tobi able to get his hands on these blessed eyes?
I have a theory for that which will be saved for the end.
Now to continue to the 2nd pillar of power. There is already a lot of info based around the
juubi and how to awaken it and while there remain a few secrets when it comes to the
Gedo-Mazou statue, it is safe to say that Tobi already has everything he needs to awaken
the Juubi again. As of the Juubis body, Tobi stated that the real body was transformed into
the moon when the Rikudo-Sennin sealed its chakra into himself. But this may very well be
part of the legend. We cannot say at this point but im positive that Kishi will adress this
matter very soon, especially considering the so called "Moon-Eye-Project", in which the moon
takes its role. I highly doubt this is a coincidence. I Would even go as far and say that
the Mugen-Tsukoyomi is Tobis last and biggest bluff and is just used as a big enough threat
to the draw the nations into war.But lets leave it at that and not spin this theory further.
Last but not least there is the ultimate life force body that the Rikudo-Sennin possessed.
This third part goes hand in hand with the acquisition of the Rinnegan. I would like to
look at this from a different angle.I will use another Tobi quote here.
"..time passed and though their blood had thinned, the descendants of the two brothers
still warred with each other..."
When Shodai Hokage Senju Hashirama fought Uchiha Madara at the valley of the end, history
itself proved Tobis statement to be correct.
I will now give you my final conclusion.
Full of rage about the Rikudo-Sennins decision, the elder son continually searched conflict
with his younger brother until it all climaxed in a battle where the wielder of the
Rinnegan would meet his fate in his younger brother.The younger brother who was picked as
being best suited to be his fathers successor, would then continue to implement his late fathers
last will to bring peace to the world. Given his unnatural long life it would take ages but
inevitably the younger brother would then have to admit, that even he was not able to find
an answer to the peace he so desperately longed for. Decade after decade witnessing the
terror of the cursed shinobi world, he began to lose his faith in the good nature of men.
The more suffering he witnessed the more he confessed to himself that if he would not be able
to bring peace to the world, nobody else could achieve this either.
It was around the time of the battle at the valley of the end when he decided to push
things forward more drastically. He instated a long term plan in which he increases his
own battle capacity to a point where fear would control the world and bring peace as
a result of his own disastrous actions. But he no longer was a young man and to achieve
his goals he would be forced to recreate the Juubi that his father split into 9 being of
chakra as a source of power. He also knew that only his exceptional body could absorb such
immense chakra without being torn apart. Knowing that even he was not immortal he researched
to create something of his own body cells that would everlasting be able to hold the Juuubis
power and force fear upon the world. The results of this research would be a creation further
known as Zetsu. But the younger son was no fool. He Knew that the world would need more to
be controlled. The people would need a certain concept of the enemy, which they could fear.
It had to be someone or something everybody would acknowledge. This concept, this idea
would go by the name of Uchiha Madara. He contacted Madara, who had lost his fight with
the Shodai Hokage and offered him an increase in power in exchange for working with him and
further improving Zetsu.He would offer his older brothers accursed eyes, the Rinnegan.
But already knowing that Madara would meet his end soon enough, he was on the lookout for
an even more promising protégé. After years of searching, he finally placed his eyes on
a fitting candidate.
Born as an offspring to the Uzumaki-clan, a young war orphan named Nagato emerged in the
Rain Country. This boy who inherited his clans superior life force would be later known
to the world as "Pain". Having created an organsisation called "Akatsuki" the younger brother
slowly but surely pushed things forward. Although having all those fail-safe systems established,
the younger brother knew that the day would come when he had to face the world himself.
Therefore, knowing that he already passed his prime, he would have to live long enough to
bring his plan to fruition. Having lived in the shadows for many years, the younger brother
would finally witness the event that would grant him the power to play an active role in
his crusade. As he travelled through the world, one day he would come across the ruins of
the Kannabi Bridge and find a young, dying shinobi burried alive under the crushing weight
of rock boulders.This Shinobi was non other than Uchiha Obito.
Unsuspecting, the younger brother watched the scene when Obito suddenly began to partially
phase through the rocks. Yet unable to fully comprehend what he witnessed, the Sage´s son
was assured that the young shinobi at the verge of death unknowingly used a complex jutsu, which
allowed him to slip through solid objects. But it was to late for the young shinobi, solely
his head reaching out, he was crushed to death. But it was in the sage´s son favor, Obito´s
Sharingan, undoubtedly the source of this unknown power, was still intact. The younger brother
would not hesitate for a second, he implanted the remaining eye into his own. Possessing
the ultimate body and life force, the sage´s son was able to activate the Sharingans power
to a massive extent, even withstanding the strain of Space-Time-Ninjutsu on himself.
The time for action had come, he was untouchable... So far!
Here it is, the final image.
In the mid-left section. Tobi, none other than the Rikudo Sage´s younger son. Even the
resemblance is undeniable.
Thats about it, i hope you like it
