It wouldn't make any sense for Kagebunshins to return chakra. That means chakra is used to initiate it and then when the technique is dispelled, the chakra all comes back to the original. And now he's in the same state he was before he used it. There's no technique that chakra isn't lost in the process or some other kind of drawback. Also if it were like this, no one would be worried about overusing KB's since the chakra all comes back anyway.
Assuming his clones are tougher in sage mode, he should just make one or two clones, and continually trade of during a fight. He charges up while his clone fights, then his clone charges while Naruto fights.
And, if it's just experience, then Naruto should turn into a Frog. Knowledge of experience is just that knowledge.
Naruto should be able to use his Clones to achieve Sage Mode and more. If used correctly. But I assure you Kish will not make Naruto smart enough to think of that.
I agree with the author of this Thread. Naruto can over come the Sage Mode stillness problem by using clones.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE I'M FROM TAKE A LOOK HERE MY FRIEND:Spoiler!
Y wouldn't Kishi make him smart enough to do that, he has done alot of other cool think with his clones which we didn't expect him to do.
Let us assume that Naruto can use clones to go into multiple sage mode and transfer the natural energy to him.
When creating a clone he will divide his chakra among those clones in the way he chooses (I don't think it has to be even, some strong clones and some weak clones might be possible.. but for easy sake lets say they are EVEN in chakra).
Naruto = 100%
---> makes 3 clones that each holds 20% of his chakra, leaving his real body with 40% of his chakra.
The situation is now:
Naruto 40% = 0,40
Clone A 20% = 0,2
Clone B 20% = 0,2
Clone C 20% = 0,2
If all clones + naruto go into sage mode, they will increase their power by X%, let us say X = 50%
The situation in sage looks like this now:
Naruto 40% = 0,40 * 50% = 0,6
Clone A 20% = 0,2 * 50% = 0,3
Clone B 20% = 0,2 * 50% = 0,3
Clone C 20% = 0,2 * 50% = 0,3
Giving him a total chakra/strengt of 1,5 (or 150%) spread on 3 clones + his own body.
If we go back and look at what his sage mode would look like if he didn't use clone technique it would be like this:
Naruto 100% + 50% = 150%
150% OMG!! This is the same that if his clones helped him!!
So again, making clones and make them go sage WILL NOT INCREASE his chackra nor give him more natural energy! I don't know how to break this down into smaller pieces or how to explain this with bananas and apples, so either you get it now, or don't.
However, there is another aspect to kagebunshin that is strange.... his chakra will not increase, but his collective physical strength will. He might find a way to make better use of it in the future if he manages to become better at taijutsu.
In the world of the blind, the one eyed man is KING!
Experience/memories resides in your chakra because it is your soul. You can kind of compare the kage bushin to the six paths in this case. The six paths need chakra to become animated, and shadow clones do to. You can compare the vision that the six paths share to the experience Naruto gains through his clones. The six paths all share chakra from the same source simultaneously. They don't have their own chakra reserves. If something were to happen with one of the six path's chakra, you could argue that all of them might feel it cause they have the same source of chakra or soul. Same way I think how Naruto's shadow clones work except with no chakra recievers. I stand on my theory that the shadow clones have to maintain/control their chakra in sage mode just as well as Naruto does. I believe that the reason that Naruto doesn't feel pain, or anything of that nature is because they are purely made of chakra! You don't feel pain from expending too much chakra, and chakra can't transfer pain from a clone to the main body. Pain is something you feel from your nerve system to warn you that you are in danger. Chakra or in this case a clone doesn't carry nerve receptors, and the only way Naruto could die from using clones is because he expended all his chakra reserves making them. You could argue that memories/experiences travel in your chakra, because it is your spirit aka soul.
Turning into a frog would be chakra based, because the only way this could happen is that his or one of the clone's chakra got unbalanced
THE BOTTOM LINE
chakra doesn't carry pain, because nerve receptors produce pain, not a memory/experience. I never thought about something and I literally felt pain because of it.
Experience isn't what turns him into a frog, the chakra does because they share the same chakra(this was already explained many times by many different people). Pain should be eliminated from the equation your talking about "shadow clones" and they are made up of chakra, and like I said, your nervous system produces pain, not chakra. Pain can't be in the same sentence when your talking about memories. You don't literally feel pain from memories/experience(memories can't carry nerves lol).
