Well now that you mention it.I really think that we should cancelit as a character and put it as a jutsu.--Bleach boy (talk) 23:06, October 17, 2009 (UTC)
It has two jutsu pages already... i suppose it was listed as a character because it can do jutsu, so that means it can use chakra and that means its alive. weird. Simant (talk) 23:08, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

How could sasuke synchronize?

Because Nagato is dead, and since the Demonic Statue requires the Rinnegan to summon. is it safe to say that Madara will give the Rinnegan to Sasuke so he can "synchronize" with the statue???--Silverblade1 (talk) 21:44, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

There is nothing that says if one is to synchronize with the Statue they must have the Rinnegan. ¥ Super Novice Talk 2 Me ¥ 21:52, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

yeah, thats what cunfuses me, go to the Rinnegan page, then scroll down to the bottom and click on the "List of Techniques that use Rinnegan" shows all the six path techniques, but also Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path ??--Silverblade1 (talk) 21:58, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

You need the Rinnegan to summon it but I think to synchronize with it you have to be a descendant of the Sage of The Six Paths (Uchiha Blood is counted too). Anyone noticed that it resembles the Ten-Tails? Maybe it was left behind by the Sage of The Six Paths to people who posess the Rinnegan incase they needed the Ten-Tails' Chakra for good?Shabih (talk) 16:03, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

This is not a Forum

As Narutopedia isn't a forum you cannot post theories like this-

"The statue also bears a resemblance to the silhouette of the Ten Tails, the key differences being a blindfold over it's one eye and Its tails cut down to stumps. One of the tails completely cut off so it appears there are only nine."

-If you want to hypothesize about the statue, join a forum.

i agree

More Buddhist References

I believe I've mentioned it elsewhere on this wikia, but the Gedō Mazō bears a strong resemblence to some famous statues of the Buddha when he was still a practicing ascetic, a form of belief that he'd later describe as an "Outer Path" that prevented one from reaching true enlightenment.

In the most recent chapter, the Gedō Mazō is shown sitting in a meditative pose atop a lotus flower. The Buddha is sometimes depicted as sitting atop a lotus flower, which symbolizes someone who overcame the pain of the material world and has become enlightened, just as the lotus flower grows in dirty water, but blossoms on the water's surface.

Madara says that he needs a substitute in manga chapter 536. He doesn't directly state that he needs someone to synchronize with it, but, considering he needs to capture the Tailed Beasts and isn't ready to synchronize it to Sasuke, I'm assuming that what he meant is that he needs a substitute to synchronize in the meantime. I'm assuming Nagato was synchronized with the statue in order to absorb the other Tailed Beasts, but I wonder what exactly it means to be synchronized with the statue.Diamonddeath (talk) 20:01, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

He said he needed to steal a substitute it was never specified, so its to Earlie to say that he meant someone that can synchronize with the statue, --Rigoberto60 (talk) 03:38, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Statue's anatomy

"When summoned it bursts from the ground, with only its upper torso and arms visible." When Madara summoned this beauty, it showed off a nice pair of legs. (as it's written further in the page when it's ankles are referred) I don't know much of statue's anatomy but I think that's a pair of legs, so you should consider removing the last part of this sentence.

If Madara could use it without having the Rinnegan, it would seem likely that he would. Since he only did it after acquiring the Rinnegan, for now, we take it as meaning the Rinnegan is required to summon it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:33, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

Alive or Statue

Tool Classification

Since the statue is well...a statue shouldn't it be considered a ninja tool instead? Darksusanoo (talk) 01:11, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

It does seem more logical to treat the statue as tool in the's kinda of redundant to have the Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path and also hase Summoning Technique (Demonic Statue of the Outer path). It like saying it's two jutsus for the same thing. And since it's a statue maybe it should be classified as a tool. Opinions please? (talk) 15:39, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Then by your logic it's redundant to have articles for summoned entities like Katsuyu and Gamabunta since they're the same as the statue. One's a page for the technique and the other's for the the character...--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 16:03, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Wow ok this discussion i didn't took the turn i point was that the statue has properties that fit better for a tool classification that that of an actual living summon creature (like you said Cerez Katsuyu and Gamabunta). My idea was to classify the Statue as tool instead of a living being, especially because it didn't ever showed any kind of personality or independant action. It's only shown working like a robot and it's a statue for both Madara and Nagato. What i think our other fellow wanted to state was that the Statue already has it's signature summon technique, and for it to show again in the basic summoning technique is kinda of repeating the point. Instead of the character being on the part of the basic summoning tech in the infobox list it in the tool section. If i recall correctly for example Kabuto has the basic summon tech(for snakes) and the Edo Tensei, yet on the list of creatures for the basic summon tech it does not list the edo tensei zombies. Did you get my point? Thougths please. Darksusanoo (talk) 17:17, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
But, the statue is alive though. Apart from the fact that we don't know much of anything about it since not all summoned entities are the same it has shown signs of life ever since it was first summoned so I'd be against listing it as a simple tool.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 17:22, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Then by that that logic Hashirama's clone couldn't be a tool either since for all intents and purposes it's also a living creature. The fact is that neither creatures have shown any form of sentience...their like puppets in a way...they can't do anything without a user unlike any other summon species like the toads, slugs and even the snakes. the point tha tell's them apart is the fact that unlike the other species the statue has not shown any form of sentience other than the fact that it blindly follows it's summoner's orders and it's fit for combat and sealing. Other than that it has no other properties than that of a giant statue. Darksusanoo (talk) 17:33, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Shadow clones are created not summoned so I don't understand what they have to do with any of this...--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 17:39, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Oh dear, why'd I see "Hiruzen's" :s Though that's "living" it doesn't have a consciousness as Madara stated. When we've seen the statue it acts as any other summoned creature and does its summoners bidding.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 18:40, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
hahaha happens to the best of us ;) The difference is from other summon creatures, is that outside of combat or sealing functions the statue does nothing: it does nothing other than being a statue..unlike any other summon like toads or i said before the statue may be alive but it's not's like a puppet minus the strings, it not made of flesh, nor is it seen doing anything outside the summoner's's a mindless tool. Darksusanoo (talk) 18:49, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Shinobi are tools, too. Should we list them as tools just because they follow orders? Seelentau 愛 19:37, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

Nice you're comparing sentient beings capable of coherent speech and feeling pain and emotions and perform multiple activities outside their orders to a giant statue who's never been seen forming an actual sentence or performing any form of independant action other than the commands of their respecitive summoners. Darksusanoo (talk) 19:50, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Well, it stopped Kitsuchi from crashing it. That means it has a will to life. Or can you prove that Madara made the statue doing that? Also, can you prove that Nagato wanted the statue to use the dragon? We never saw him using any Jutsu besides the summoning of the statue. Everything else was done by the statue itself. Seelentau 愛 19:59, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
First off if you wanna talk that the statue has defensive instinct why didn't it made any atempt to dogde or block any of Chouji's blows? The thing took then head on. And it only went on a rampage by Madara's order. And in Nagato's case he was directly connected to the statue and as soon as Hanzo's men were all dead and Hanzo gone the statue was gone. If Nagato wanted he could have given any other order to it. I'm not saying the thing is not alive, i'm saying that it does not appear to possess any form of sentience and outside of it's functions it does not appear to possess an actual mind. it's not like Gamabunta or Katsuyu. It may be animated but it's still a statue. Darksusanoo (talk) 20:25, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
I understand your point. Also, I don't really care what the statue is labeled as. I just wanted to say that it's wrong to classify the statue as a tool just because it follows some orders ;) Seelentau 愛 20:42, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
Of course i understand that. If it were by that all shinobi were only tools ;) I'm just trying to put out the fact that the thing is a statue and that it does not do anything outside it's given orders. They "say seal"...and it seals, They "say fight" and it fight's. Nothing that suggests intelligent thought. But oww well i'll stop beating the point and wait for more opinions if anyone is interested Darksusanoo (talk) 22:04, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
It's a rather interesting topic that was brought up. I think that for now, it should be kept as a character. It is alive, and despite the apparent limited intelligence, it has some independence of action, unlike the Hashirama clone. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:13, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

I don't recall there being good angles on those. Most of the shots from sealings show the statue with the dragons coming out and going at the host. In an image showing the sealing, I think that would be the most important thing about it. Its eyes are not that import to warrant a close from it, like a dōjutsu would be. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 05:23, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

Well, since the manga version does not have the ring kanji on the fingertips, it is less descriptive than the anime one. Now, if we can enhance the size and resolution of the anime, then it'd be better, right? Yatanogarasu (Talk) 05:36, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, the thing Nagato did when he first summoned the statue is listed under Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, which is what was used. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 02:33, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

Outer Path

I'm not exactly sure how to phrase my question, but whatever. :) Okay, so I guess I understand what the Outer Path is, or rather understand as much as it can be with the current lack of exposition. Are we treating Gedō Mazō as a part of the Outer Path ability? It kind of seems like the statue can use at least part of the Outer Path ability, seeing as it can use the path's Chakra Chains, so shouldn't it be listed as a user of that as well? Skitts (talk) 22:21, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Bump. Skitts (talk) 04:18, May 30, 2012 (UTC)
I'd always assumed that it had something to do with the Outer Path as the name for it is the demonic Statue of the Outer Path but I don't know about clumping it together with the actual Outer Path. Chakra Chains is listed as a jutsu it can use as well. Joshbl56 04:33, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Maybe both Nagato and the Statue are Outer Path ... life-death "_" after all, he was able to use it after it has pierced his back.--Elveonora (talk) 13:10, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

@Joshbl56 Tobi mentioned that the Chakra Chains he used was an ability provided by using the Outer Path, which would mean the Statue uses it as well, no? Skitts (talk) 14:34, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Well, over at the German Narutopedia, I solved this question the following way: As we all know, the Rinnegan grants the user six paths as well as the seventh path, the Gedō. The 7th path allows the user to do two things. The first is to revive people by using the Rinne Tensei Jutsu. The second is to control corpses by using the Gedō no Jutsu (mentioned by Naruto) and the Chakra transmitters. But I see, that's not the question here^^ I really don't have a clue how the Gedō Mazō fits in here. It isn't used for either of the Gedō's abilities, that much is obvious. I don't think that the Chakra chains used by Tobi are the same Gedō Mazō's using. When the Yonbi was shown, we could see two types of chains, right? I think the one going through the Yonbi's chest is the one used by Gedō Mazō while the ones on Yonbi's arms are the ones Tobi is using to control the Jinchūriki through the ability Gedō's granting him (Tobi). Seelentau 愛 17:30, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

@Skitts, I meant that Chakra Chains is already one of it's jutsus. Also, when people say Outer Path, I think of Nagato and the King of Hell but I think Elveonora is probably the closest one here as far as the life and death situation as well. The Outer Path's description says that it revives people, which is the life and the Statue takes life away through his Ghost Dragon things, which is death.oshbl56|Joshbl56]] 17:58, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Hm. Unless I've missed something, we may need to revise the Outer Path article. As I understand it (and what Seelentau appears to have said), each of 7 Paths is an ability/technique that allows the user access to a subset of related techniques. For example, the Deva Path is an ability that allows the user access to techniques that manipulate forces in general. 2 of them control Gravity (Banshō Tenin and Chibaku Tensei) while the other (Shinra Tensei) manipulates a "repulsive force" (as per ShounenSuki's translation). However, the Outer Path article says that the Outer Path ability allows one to revive the dead, but that would be the technique it allows access to, the Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique, not the Outer Path itself, since that ability allows other things besides that. Perhaps I've misunderstood/mixed things up, but I think that is correct. Skitts (talk) 18:37, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, the whole topic is somewhat mixed up on this wiki. The Outer Path is a technique that allows the user to control life (Rinne Tensei) and death (Outer Path no Jutsu). At least that's what I understand it to be. Seelentau 愛 18:46, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

That's correct.--Elveonora (talk) 18:53, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

The statue has "sawn-off" looking spikes on it's back, the Ten Tails has spikes on it's back. The statue doesn't have tails because it's chakra was split into the 9 beasts so that could be why it doesn't have tails at this point. Although the statue has more then the "One eye" the Ten Tails is said to have, has any of the beasts said anything about it only having the one eye? Or are we just going on what everyone's heard in the legends? There could always be the possibility that it has more then the one eye? SusanooUnleashed (talk) 02:18, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Why is everyone forgetting that the beast's body was sealed within the moon? I really doubt Madara or anyone had time to journey to the moon and break it out without the entire structure breaking down or no one noticing. Naturally you're going to find similarities between the two but it was called a vessel, so until we know better, it's simply a vessel, not the things body. We have to work off what we know.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 12:56, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Sage even planned it's revival, or more like has foreseen. The thing that it came from the ground instead of puff of smoke is a curiosity in itself.

We didn't merge the nine Tailed Beasts when they were to revealed to originally be the same being, no point in these mergers as well. A more appropriate discussion regarding this, in my opinion, is what to consider the entity to be after it has finished merging the chakra of seven tailed beasts. Do we refer to it and list it as an incomplete Ten-Tails, or do we keep listing it as the statue? I think that it should be listed and considered an incomplete Ten-Tails. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:41, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

But it's still the same entity, just without it's tails and eye, simply weaker. That's like saying Kakashi wouldn't be a copy-ninja anymore if he had lost the Sharingan to blindness currently. Also the appearance section should be updated "now" that we know how it looks recently, that's why a merger would be better than to refer to a single character in two articles--Elveonora (talk) 23:44, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, why did we merge Tobi and Obito pages? Even if they're the same person they use different names and are entirely different personality wise. * sarcastic* But really, this is the Ten-Tails no matter how you stretch it. The Juubi was never even stated to have died. And it was sealed, only more proof it was still dangerous and still it's old self- despite having it's chakra severely drained. I suggest we merge the pages, list the name Demonic Statue of the Outer Path in the alias section and change it's class to 'Summon, Tailed Beast', split the appearance section, give it 2 pictures through the tabs like the Obito/Tobi page got. And add the abilities sections into one or keep them separated. Also keep in mind Kurama had it's chakra removed by naruto and still had a small amount left, likely the case with the statue as there was still enough left to indefinately prolong Madara's life, empower Spiral Zetsu, and create hundreds of Zetsu Clones. And we already know that Tailed Beasts with chakra missing, coughKinkaku&Ginkakucough, will try and drain the chakra back. At the very least you gotta make them have a family section saying they're related and change the classifications. Skarrj (talk) 09:05, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

That makes no sense. Tobi despite his behaviour, is still Tobi- one single person. All of that merging and splitting up of information in the article is entirely unnecessary to me in this case. One's a statue the other the Ten-Tails. The manner in which you even want to present the information is confusing from just reading it. As for your concerns Omni, I always thought that once it was done the merging and such all other info would just go on the Ten-Tails' article with appropriate redirects and such.Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 10:43, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

@Cerez, the Ten-Tails is the statue... it might have ceased being a "TEN-TAILS" but that wasn't it's name to begin with, more like a nickname. If I had a dog Bob and used to call him "4 paws" from time to time, even if he had lost one limb, I wouldn't have referred to him as "3 paws" from that point on.--Elveonora (talk) 01:20, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

Look people, mainly Cerez and Omnibender, the statue has been confirmed to be the body of the beast. Madara gave it the name "Gedo Mazo", but in the same chapter in which he states that he named it, he also calls it the body of the Ten-Tails. Now, the statue is a living creature. It can move, roar, fight on its own. I'd go as far to say its literally the Ten-Tails without all of its chakra. It makes no sense whatsoever to keep the articles separate. Cerez says the statue has named attacks. Yeah? And? Now they're the Ten-Tails' named attacks, because we know now what the statue is. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 03:26, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

I guessed that the Statue was the body of the Ten-Tails a long while back on my talk page but I still think the Statue should be viewed as a constituent part like the other tailed beasts. I do think it's well past time to merge the Nagato summons though. Arrancar79 (talk) 03:50, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

I still don't understand. I have yet to see one good reason why the two articles should be merged. That's like if we find out that Naruto and Sasuke were originally one being, then we should automatically just hump all the information in one article. Thee two separate articles have merit on their own and with proper redirection: "this article is about the empty vessel of the Ten-Tails, see...", "this article is about the ten-tails itself, see..." One is about the entire being, the other about what its empty vessel has been up to while it was sealed away. You guys are making it out to look like people are running around headless wondering why the two have yet to be merged, when it looks like merging these two articles would bring more confusion than it's worth.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:26, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

I just see it pointless to state some of the information in both articles twice, also what in a case it gets revived?

  • "Ten-Tails has been revived"
  • "Demonic Statue no longer exists since it has grown back it's tails and got an eye"
  • "Reality check: it's the same thing"

If we ever get to know So6p name, will we have 2 articles, one that refers to him as a person the other as a legend? Makes no sense... now, what about we make an article for Pervy Sage, since it appears to be an alter-ego of Jiraiya--Elveonora (talk) 23:12, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

The Mazo may be the "main" part of the Ten-Tails but it's still just a part in the same way as any of the tailed beasts IMO, it's part in the story is as unique as any of them. If the TT say produces the dragons from it's mouth then I could see maybe merging them then but the Mazo could function in such a very different manner as to clearly be nothing like TT. I don't see this being like a Cell-Perfect Cell situation, if that analogy helps. Arrancar79 (talk) 01:19, October 20, 2012 (UTC)
Anyone have a disagreement with merging this with the Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path article? Arrancar79 (talk) 01:23, October 20, 2012 (UTC)
Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path is a technique. It won't be merged with a character/item page.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 01:38, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

That's a difference... Tailed Beasts (Kurama > Shukaku) are their own entities, while Ten-Tails and Demonic Statue are one and the same, thus your analogy is out of place.--Elveonora (talk) 02:48, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

They're as the same thing as are the Sharingan and the Rinnegan. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 02:58, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

How can you compare pairs of eyes with a living entity/character?--Elveonora (talk) 03:13, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Ten-Tails and Rinnegan are "complete". The power of the Rinnegan was split into two bloodlines, much like the Ten-Tails had its chakra split from its body. The Sharingan, a part of the Rinnegan can be made into the Rinnegan again by adding Senju genes/cells/power/whatever, which originally was together with the eyes, as the Rinnegan in the sage. The Demonic Statue, a part of the Ten-Tails, can be made into the Ten-Tails by adding its formerly split chakra. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 03:24, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

@ TheUltimate3 Why is it a technique? I didn't see a databook reference so it seems that it was just created that way. The Mazo seems like it should be treated as any other character summons would like Kurama. Arrancar79 (talk) 03:31, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

It was created as a technique because it's introduction in the series was as a technique. There are other techniques which follow the "Summoning: X" format. If it was merely a Summoning Technique, only "Summoning Technique" would have been used, much like with 99% of the summoned creatures in the series. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 03:33, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

While Sharingan/Rinnegan were separated/have evolved/devolved/whatever from each other, they are basically 2 different eye techniques, while "Ten-Tails" never has died or ceased to be in any way. Loss of power =/= loss of identity, and even if so, that doesn't make Gedo Statue and Jubi 2 separate entities. It's very pointless, unless we refer to Gedo Statue as a "tool" and to Jubi as a character, except tools aren't alive--Elveonora (talk) 03:41, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks Omni I understand the idea behind that decision now but is it still the most appropriate format in this instance? I'm seeing it as just like Kurama. Arrancar79 (talk) 03:42, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Merger- Decision Time

Chapter 609 pretty much confirms what everyone's been saying. The Statue is the Ten-Tails. Its gained its tails back and become more complete, but the Statue wasn't destroyed, nor did anything else happen to bring the Ten-Tails back. It literally is just a more completed form of the statue. For that reason, I believe we can now warrant a merge between the two articles. Thoughts on this? ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 06:05, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

I agree--JayCeeCee 06:14, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
Let's not forget that 10-tails and the Gedo statue were separated during all the major plot points in the story. The body and the 9 portions of chakra all became their own individual characters, so merging the articles together seems a little hasty--Malcasablanca (talk) 06:36, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
Having them separated is ridiculous.--Elveonora (talk) 06:48, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
Take it this way, the Statue is the Body, while the Chakra is the soul. Madara is trying to put the soul back into its body. So We Humans, don't have a seperate ID Proof for our Soul and Body do we ?--JayCeeCee 07:07, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Still going with no. You guys don't seem to understand that no one is disputing whether or not the Ten-Tails and the Demonic Statue are one entity. What you're not getting is how others want to portray the information on this wiki. You seem to think that because they're a singular thing then then we have to merge the articles which is wrong. As far as I'm concerned the role of the statue has ended and all information from chapter 609 and onwards should be reflected in the Ten-Tails' article.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk)09:05, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

I'm rather conflicted on this. While I can see Cerez and Omni's point, I just can't get beyond the point that the statue isn't so much a statue as it is a giant corpse. It's not like we consider The Paths of Pain as being separate people from their living selves even when under the effect of Nagato's Techniques. I get it's not about whether or not they are the same entity, but how we choose to present it, but it's also not the case that we make articles for people whose corpses significance continues beyond that of their life. Anyway, over all, I think I'll go with Cerez and Omni on this one and say no. If nothing else it means that the Statue article doesn't open with a massive spoiler saying "Ten Tails" if some new fans are trying to find info on it. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 09:59, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

i am going with cerez with this, it is the all the tailed beasts together that makes the ten tails.. not the gedo mazo it should stay seperated. the gedo mazo as how its role seems is just a vessel to carry the chakra--Manga-anime90001 (talk) 10:42, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

my bad ^the gedo mazo only serves now as vessel for juubi--Manga-anime90001 (talk) 11:03, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

My vote's on merge. Body without chakra is still itself. It makes no sense to keep the articles separate. Also, in case they'll still be kept separate, why isn't it classified as a tailed beast? Even though it has no tails, its still the original tailed beast. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 15:19, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

We've already went over this, and we knew the outcome of the revival and it didn't change the reasoning of the Statue and the Ten-Tails. Hell Cerez is right, the role of the statue has ended, and now information of the Ten-Tails, in it's own article begins.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:33, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Why did we merge Tobi and Obito? Because they are singular. Nuf said. Skarrj (talk) 15:43, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Because Obito putting on a mask is still a guy in a mask. A corpse becoming a giant statue is not. If you want to make a good argument try and think about it fully.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:51, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Well it could be argued that the statue is still the 10 tails just without it's chakra. Because it still kept it's body, personality, ect. But upon further thinking, it's basically the same as a Human Puppet. Just corpses. Though it could be argued that the 10 tails was never killed and was only drained of chakra, so it isnt really a corpse. Skarrj (talk) 16:25, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

@ultimate, Obito with or without a mask is still Obito, just like the statue without it's tails is still "ten-tails" Also the tailed beasts aren't it's soul, they are it's chakra, the ten-tails never died thus Gedo isn't it's corpse. Imagine being very dehydrated; water is for your body what the tailed beasts are for Gedo. It's simply the same entity just weakened--Elveonora (talk) 21:25, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

The articles should stay split. As mentioned already, the Statue was its own being for a long while. I don't recall anyone suggesting to merge the tailed beast articles into the Ten-Tails. They were their own characters. So what if Madara gave the statue its name, the Sage of the Six Paths did the same thing to the tailed beasts. Even as a summon, the statue is its own thing, and no, since just the statue isn't the Ten-Tails, it'll not be categorised as a Tailed Beast MangekyoSasuke. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:41, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Where do you have proof that Gedo had any different mindset/personality/soul than from before it got it's tails cut and eye ripped? (chakra split) It never ceased to exist, it has changed only physically. A larva and a butterfly aren't 2 separate entities, are they?--Elveonora (talk) 21:56, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

By "its own being", I mean that it did stuff after having its chakra split. Madara used it to grow the Hashirama clone, Nagato summoned it against Hanzō, Obito summoned it against Darui's division. If anything, the fact it could be controlled as a statue is a difference from the Ten-Tails as a whole. If the Sage could merely control it, why seal it? Given one has the prerequisites, the statue will do the bidding of the summoner. Sage couldn't control the Ten-Tails, he had to seal it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:20, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Because in it's "complete" form it was too strong to control with Outer Path alone?--Elveonora (talk) 23:34, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

You asked for a difference. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:08, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Actually a Larva and a Butterfly are different xD. The Larva when born has 2 sets of DNA in it's body. 1 set is dormant. When it forms the crysalis around it's body, it physically dies and the second set of DNA is used to create the butterfly from its corpse. But this argument is getting tiring. The Gedo Mazo and Juubi are technically the same. The argument is that it was used for a long period of time without it's chakra and thus is a different entity. Thinking back, didn't Mu split himself in half? Maybe we should make a whole new page for the split. Skarrj (talk) 16:15, November 15, 2012 (UTC)
