Ever since I started watching/reading Naruto I cant but help see the similarties between Naruto & Star wars. Alot of the repeating generational themes and even the prophcey. Even the Polarizing between good and evil choosing between serving you own selfish ambitions versus the greater good are all themes both present in both
Some of you know I have mentioned this many times before in other threads ( maybe too many XD) but If we examine them we can se similarites in some of the charcters so lets look real quick...
Pa Frog = Yoda - More than just in looks and size and where he lives. His wisdom and training of Jiraiya/Naruto in Natural energy/The force
Jiraiya = Obi wan - He himself is a major trigger throught the story and a bridge connecting a generation gap.His actionswould shape the entire future of things to come.
- He trained 2 of possibly the most influential charcters in the story Pain/Anakin(Vader) and Naruto/Luke.
- One Student breaks form his path and turned to evil Pain/Anakin and was responsible for his death
- The other follows in his path and is the supposed Hero; Naruto/Luke
Pain = Anakin(Vader) Believed to be the chosen one who would bring peace to the world/galaxy instead chose a path of darkness to achive the same goal in his own way.
Naruto = Luke A strong desire to protect his friends and do the right thing. Both have thier mentor taken from them and are destined to face thier opposite.
*OK so after thinking about all he connections with Starwars I began thinking about the prophcey. Just like the prohcey in star wars was a little hazy maybe this is true in Naruto too.
- What if Pein really is the Child of Prophecy as Anakin was the choosen one. However the point of the Story like Star wars is about redemtion and Naruto will somehow reach Pains inner heart an turn him to good which will change the fate of the world like Luke reaching Vader.
- Kakashi said it best Naruto's greatest ability is to make friends with anyone and change ppls hearts. As impossible as it seems atm what If Naruto is able to reach Pain and is supposed to act as a catalyst of change just as Luke in Star wars. The fact that Naruto shares alot of characteristics with Yahiko may be a bridge to reaching him.
This would be a shocking twist no dobht so what do you guys think about this ?
