As Yin-Kurama's jinchūriki

In the latest chapter, Madara stated that Obito had both the left Rinnegan and the Yin half of Kurama. Is that enough to put Obito as Yin-Kurama's jinchūriki (though he most likely has already transferred it to Naruto)?--JOA20 (talk) 07:47, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

I don't know why and how, but this chapter says that now Obito possesses Yin Kurama. Should we make respective changes?Faust-RSI (talk) 08:25, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
He *had the Yin Kyuubi. He transferred it to Naruto. But, maybe the community might want to wait for the raws to make an official decision.-NaviiGator (A.K.A.KotoSenju)Talk Page-My Contributions 09:12, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
I'm fairly certain that Obito was the Yin Kurama Jinchuriki for a brief period of time there. He was using a kyuubi chakra arm to pull the beast fragments out of Madara, and when we saw him in Madara in that bijuu mind space place, you can see the Yin Kyuubi floating right above him. As such, I'd say it'd be safe to list him as a past Kyuubi jin. --Kenny U (talk) 14:22, February 28, 2014 (UTC)

2 things

Shouldn't we list him as a user of chakra absorption? Also I see he is listed as a Sensor, I don't recall, any justification for that?--Elveonora (talk) 10:21, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

Against Sasuke's Amaterasu in chapter 641: "I could sense the build up of chakra in your left eye..."--JOA20 (talk) 11:19, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
But couldn't it have been his sense of sight, he can see chakra? Arrancar79 (talk) 04:50, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
He is most definitely a Sensor type, as he has used sensing abilities to find Minato and Kushina, Sasuke and Itachi, and then Taka, then he said he sensed the Amaterasu build up. I also agree he can absorb Chakra.. I mean Madara did say he turned Obito into himself basically...ItachiWasAHero (talk) 07:56, February 27, 2014 (UTC)


Shouldn't Obito have Gedo Mazo be listed as one of Obito's Tailed Beasts in his infobox? It was only for a short time sure, but there nonetheless. Skitts (talk) 17:09, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

The Demonic Statue isn't a tailed beast, so...--JOA20 (talk) 17:10, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Except, given it's the husk of the Ten Tails and so technically it is, so... Skitts (talk) 17:11, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
It may be similar to a tailed beast, but it has never been stated to be one, not by Madara, Obito or the tailed beasts, who are the ones knowing the most about it.--JOA20 (talk) 17:18, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
It's the Ten-Tails' body, so it clearly is a Tailed Beast by definition. Neither Obito nor Madara have ever referred to Gedo Mazo as a living being either, but clearly we didn't need them to tell us that once we saw it moving and showing behavior and such. Skitts (talk) 17:21, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

Well, if that's your point then we'll have to go by vote. I actually support this. --JOA20 (talk) 17:23, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

It might be the body of a tailed beast, but it's not a tailed beast. Obito wasn't no longer a jinchūriki the moment One-Tail through Seven-Tails and the chakra fragments of Eight and Nine-Tails were removed from him. He's not even a pseudo-jinchūriki, since he no longer had the chakra of an actual tailed beast in him. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:29, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Omni, the equivalent of what you're saying is if Kurama lost all of its chakra, the person it's sealed in is no longer a jinchuriki, which is self-evidently absurd. After all, Gyuki said that Samehada had absorbed all his chakra during his and B's fight with Kisame, yet we never thought to de-list B as a jinchuriki. It's the being itself that counts, not simply the chakra. Skitts (talk) 17:45, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Obito was a classified as a jinchuriki when he had the Ten-Tails sealed in him. When it was removed and he was just housing the Demonic Statue, he kept his status as a jinchuriki (same way Gaara kept his status despite Shukaku being removed), but he was no longer a jinchuriki because the Demonic Statue is not a tailed beast.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 18:05, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
If it's a tb, the sage's tools are tb, too. Seelentau 愛 18:16, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
A better discussion seems to be the fact that Obito was the actual jinchūriki of Yin Kurama, not Zetsu. Madara even outright says in this chapter that it is Obito housing Kurama, evidenced by Kurama appearing with him when he went to pull out Madara's beasts, as well as his ability to transfer the beast from himself to Naruto. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 19:02, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Don't think it's quite that simple. It was very clear that Black Zetsu was the one who took Kurama. Obito was still unconscious when it happened. Either Obito has access to Yin Kurama because he's merged with BZ and is preventing BZ from leaving him, or for some reason, BZ housed Yin Kurama in Obito. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 19:19, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
If it were that simple for a Zetsu to become a jinchūriki, I wonder why Madara/Obito didn't just "steal" the tailed beasts housing them in Zetsu clones. Madara himself says it: "Obito has both the Yin half of the Nine-Tails and the left Rinnegan..."--JOA20 (talk) 19:44, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Things have been screwy with this. When Obito was not in control of his body, Black Zetsu was ready to leave Obito's body and take Yin-Kurama with him, meaning Yin-Kurama had to have been in him. However, once Obito got control of the body, he was able to do the transfer.
It is possible that because Black Zetsu is a parasite on Obito's body, once he regained control, he could do whatever he wanted with Black Zetsu and that includes transfering a tailed beast.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 19:46, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Yes because when he transferes the kyuubi to Naruto, he does from his right side, the side that BZ isn't on. This means that no matter what, something happened so that the kyuubi is inside of Obito now Riptide240 (talk)
Obito might be in control of what happens to it, but it's still in BZ. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:45, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Even still, he would have to have it in himself first cause he didn't do it from BZ he did it from his own flesh and being Riptide240 (talk) 20:48, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
I don't think BZ has a body in the first place. He's a mass of chakra that leeches on to people. Therefore, he would use the body he's attached to to store any tailed beasts he takes. As chakra, he has no storage place of his own. When leaving the body, he would just hold on to the chakra to take it with him. To say that BZ on his own is a Jinchuuriki is like say a tailed beast can be a jinchuuriki of a tailed beast. Not possible. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 20:58, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
He may not have a body in a traditional sense, but he definitely has a physical composition. He's not an ethereal entity, otherwise there's no way he'd be able to so many things he does, like just a few chapters ago, digging his way through the ground to intercept Yin Kurama. That still doesn't change the fact that when he was going to leave before Obito stopped him, the black mass itself was leaving Obito's body, meaning the black mass itself contained Yin Kurama. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:05, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Who said chakra was ethereal? If that were the case, the tailed beast would be ghosts. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 21:09, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Chakra by definition is made up two energies. By ethereal, I mean something like dragon entities that come out of the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path. Sure, they're there, they interact with stuff, but it's not quite mass like a rock or a tree. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:14, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
On topic... @Skitts, the "Ten-Tails/Shinju" isn't even a Tailed Beast, we just classify it as such for some weird reason. Also offtopic, but again I must remind the urgency of merging Gedo Mazo and Shinju articles. Having them separated is like saying that myself with a limb removed would no longer be me but some other person--Elveonora (talk) 23:39, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
I know I used to be in favor of the contrary, but I actually do not support a merger. Also, I kind of don't think the Gedo Mazo should really count as making him a jinchuriki... BUT... I do think the Shinju itself should be separated from the Ten-Tail's page. The Shinju (God Tree) was able to be reproduced by Obito during his duration as its Jinchuriki. But even after being stripped of the Ten-Tails and having all of the Tailed Beast comprising it split up, the Shinju remained fully planted in the ground without being disturbed. This effectively demonstrated that it, after its recreation at least, was able to continue on without and in the absence of the Juubi/Ten-Tails itself, the 9 Chakra Entities which comprised it, and the Gedo Mazo body. So I do not think either Shinju or Gedo Mazo should be counted as Tailed Beasts. After all, they both lack the fundamental chakra tails, even if they are chakra entities in either part or whole.Skarrj (talk) 05:31, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
I would agree that after taking control of his body and BZ Obito just could do anything he wanted with Yin Kurama, while it still was physically in BZ, but him resealing it to Naruto through his normal body AND him using tailed beast chakra arms against Madara suggests that Kurama somehow moved to his body. It's stupid, I know, but that's how Kishi made it.Faust-RSI (talk) 06:35, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
He did take it from Black Zetsu apparently, becoming a temporary nine tails host, then he sealed it into naruto. ItachiWasAHero (talk) 07:57, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
@Skarrj, except the Gedo Mazo IS the Shinju, what's not clear here? What's outside (the tree) is a replica. Kinda like Gaara recreating Shukaku from his sand without unsealing it from within himself in Part I. "Gedo Mazo" is just a nickname given to it by Madara. My body without limbs will still be I, Elveonora. The Shinju without the stripped chakra that are the Tailed Beasts isn't suddenly a different entity.
And yes, glad you agree on that the Shinju/Gedo Mazo isn't a Tailed Beast. Tailed Beasts are Sage of Six Path's creations, and he made 9 of them... "Ten-Tails" is a tailed beast in name/label only. So to answer the topic, Obito can't be listed as a host to Gedo Mazo, Shinju, Ten-Tails, because all 3 are the very same entity just in different forms with different given nicknames.
On the the topic of Obito being Kurama's jinchuuriki, I'm not so sure. After all, it definitely was inside of Black Zetsu and it even tried to separate itself from Obito, trying to bring Kurama to Madara. In my opinion Obito isn't its jinchuuriki, he only has full control over Black Zetsu now, so you could say he is one only "by extension"--Elveonora (talk) 12:32, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
Um, no, the ten tails was explicitly stated to be the original tailed beast, that not something debatable. The rest about the ten tails I'm on the fence on. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 14:57, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
About the Ten-Tails being the original tailed beast, Obito at the Five Kages' Summit stated that it was "the origin of the tailed beasts" in response to Temari's question on wheter it was another tailed beast. So it is not really a tailed beast. It is considered one only because of the numerical tail name, which would put the Zero-Tails as a tailed beast as well, except it isn't.--JOA20 (talk) 16:41, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
People simply didn't know once upon a time there was a Ten-Tails, that doesn't make it less a tailed beast. Want a simple rationale that says it is a tailed beast? What is the definition of a jinchūriki? Someone who has had a tailed beast sealed in them. From the moment we learned about the existence of the Ten-Tails, we were told that Hagoromo was its jinchūriki, which by extension means the Ten-Tails is a tailed beast.

Skill with staff

from the recent chapter shouldn't we add his skill to use the staff he has to deflect multiple orbs Madara attacked him with --Fanking (talk) 21:01, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

Sage Mode user?

After having his power drained from Obito, and Obito subseqeuntly attempting to escape via his own Kamui, he was quickly stopped by two Black Chakra Orbs which he effectively countered with his Chakra Shakujo. HOWEVER... Madara notes that:"It was correct to use Sage Mode. Were you able to suck a little of that power too?". Does this mean Obito also absorbed some of his Senjutsu in the process? Skarrj (talk) 05:34, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Madara didn't mean SM, read another translation. He just talked about "Rikudo Mode", i.e. staff, chakra cloak etc.Faust-RSI (talk) 06:35, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
I'd still like to see what the RAW has to say about this. Because we may finally have a name for the Ten-Tails jinchūriki form. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 06:54, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
I thought it was a description for that form as well. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:15, February 27, 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at the chapter talk page. ;) Seelentau 愛 16:45, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, what I said still stays the same. Madara basically says "Transforming into the Sage (not SM user, but the Sage of 6 Paths) only once...". Also, Obito could defend himself from the orbs because the staff is made from the same material. Basically absorbing part of Madara's power enebled him to use Yin-Yang release again.Faust-RSI (talk) 19:51, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
Na, read my translation. ;) Seelentau 愛 00:40, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't fit what you said above, though. Seelentau 愛 11:56, March 3, 2014 (UTC)
@Faust-RSI i have to agree with Seelentau here you did just say it was Rikudo Mode —This unsigned comment was made by Funsize33 (talkcontribs) .
Regardless of the translation, I'm against listing Obito as a Sage Mode user for the same reason that I'm against listing Madara. They stole Hashirama's Sage chakra (though Obito stole Hashi's from Madara) and have no capacity to use Sage Mode on their own. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 17:26, March 3, 2014 (UTC)
Hmm so Obito used sage mode for a bit, and madara calls it Senninka?? What does the ka at the end actually mean? ItachiWasAHero (talk) 00:31, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
"Senninka" means "Sage Transformation". "-ka" (化) means "transformation". Its the same romanji used to describe Jūgo's clan's transformation, which is basically an unstable Sage Mode. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 03:33, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
So that means Madara and Obito did not use Sage mode since it was imperfect, but instead Sage Transformation... still weird how the hashi face looked just like hashirama in actual sage mode though. ItachiWasAHero (talk) 05:30, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
Not quite. See, Seel translated some lines from the manga, specifically Jūgo's that proves that Sage Transformation is just another name for Sage Mode. In essence, Sage Mode is a type of Sage Transformation, while Jūgo's clan is unable to balance the chakras, meaning that their Sage Transformation doesn't equate to Sage Mode. Its weird, but Madara is using a Sage Mode. Hashirama's Sage Mode, however, not his own. Same for Obito, though I question this, as he didn't gain any of the markings that Madara did. I still think it was refering to the Jinchūriki mode looking like the Sage of Six Paths, but that's just me. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 06:26, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
Considering the Ten tails chakra is equivalent to natural energy, its not completely a stretch to say the jinchuuriki form for ten tails is a form of sage mode. So maybe he's referring to that, considering there's no sage mode marks on Obito. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 06:43, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
The fact that there are no Sage Mode markings doesn't mean that Obito didn't absorb a small portion of senjutsu chakra. At least that's what I got from Madara's reaction.--JOA20 (talk) 07:05, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
The basic problem we have is: How could Obito use Senjutsu without the markings and all that stuff? Normally, it shouldn't be possible. The only explanation I can think of is that he didn't get any markings because he didn't absorb pure natural energy, but Senjutsu chakra. Seelentau 愛 08:02, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
He used it temporarily to block the orbs that were shot at him right? Maybe Kishi just didn't even bother to draw it, or the tankobon will have it? ItachiWasAHero (talk) 11:09, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
Was it ever stated that the Sennin Mode is the inevitable result of absorbing natural energy? Because since the Sennin Mode is a Senjutsu, I'm thinking that a Senjutsu user doesn't need to enter Sennin Mode to use Senjutsu. Seelentau 愛 11:19, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
So much speculation... no, Sage Transformation isn't "just" another name for Sage Mode until we are told otherwise for a simple reason: Jugo and his clan call their usage of Sage Mode as Sage Transformation yes, but we were never told they use it as a general/broad term for the phenomena outside of their clan, it's likely it refers only their own specific usage alone, which is different. For all I could care, if dogs were to be called cats somewhere in the world because a specific breed of a dog would resemble a cat, that wouldn't mean all dogs are suddenly to be called cats just because some call one so.
For Madara, we don't even know if he ever met and heard a Jugo Clan's member use the term "Senninka" Madara hardly knows anything about Sage Mode, he could call it come at me from behind because he doesn't know better. But just for the sake of it Seelentau, did the word "Senninka" Madara used have even the same Kanji as Jugo's?
And to answer your question (we people here argued about this topic some time ago and I oppose it still) We were never told nor has it been shown that Sage Mode is something that has to be activated rather than being automatic. Quite the contrary in fact, just refer to the magical toad oil which makes your skin suck in natural energy. After an application of it, Naruto automatically entered incomplete Sage Mode, so there's no way to have Senjutsu chakra without being in Sage Mode, because the latter is a result of the former and isn't even a technique that has to be used, it simply is a state/automatic bodily response.--Elveonora (talk) 13:51, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
I really don't want to discuss this again. I figured the whole topic out, but it's not my job to convince you guys. But yes, Jugo and Madara use the same term. Seelentau 愛 13:59, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. And ditto, I still am positive you interpret it wrong :-/ but I'm not a preacher either. I could repeat myself for days to come and it wouldn't change a thing. But the topic shouldn't be dismissed completely, Jugo should be listed as a user of Sage Mode at least, that I agree with.--Elveonora (talk) 17:30, March 4, 2014 (UTC)

Infobox tabs?

I know this has probably been brought up before, but are they really necessary? Why don't we just use the Obito image and put the Tobi image in the appearance section? --Mandon (talk) 19:09, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

For a good chunk of his life he wore a mask, from 14 all the way until 31. So I am kind of torn on this one. ItachiWasAHero (talk) 01:24, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, but now that we have seen his face, should we just add the mask on his appearance section? ~IndxcvNovelist (talk | contribs | PR | RLS) 14:09, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
He has a mask as his "Tobi" tab for the same reason a bunch of other characters have tabs for Anime/Manga, Part I/Part II ect. Basically, mask Tobi is more iconic than unmasked Obito (no matter how much you like to think), and the very existence of tabs are to avoid the unnecessary "I want this image! No I want this image!" scenario.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 17:58, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Plus, the majority of his appearance in the anime/manga was with a mask, so people are more likely to see him as such. Just showcasing him without one will lead to unnecessary spoilers for those who haven't yet reached the current events of the anime / manga. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 18:01, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

That's kind of a moot point, since his unmasked image is the default photo. Besides, we don't really make decisions with, "Oh we need to avoid unnecessary spoilers" in mind. This wiki's full of spoilers, and it doesn't accommodate people who aren't caught up. --Mandon (talk) 16:30, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

It also does not solely cater to the people who are "caught up". Following your logic, Part I images should be removed from infoboxes since the Part II images are already there and unmasked Kakashi should someday replace masked Kakashi.
This is, what, your third proposal relating to Obito's infobox image. Why are you so concerned about it? ~SnapperTo 17:28, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

Mask Color

The latest episode with Obito as Madara during the time when he assisted Itachi in wiping out the Uchiha Clan had his flame-patterned mask as a red-orange. I thought it was always yellow. Was this a different mask, did the color fade over time, or was this a mistake? Diamonddeath (talk) 22:47, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

I don't recall a yellow mask, but blame it on lighting--Elveonora (talk) 12:27, April 21, 2014 (UTC)

Maybe it was just dulled from being nighttime when he attacked Hidden Leaf with Kurama and fought Minato. At the very least, in Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Masked Man's mask is more yellow than orange, but that could be chalked up to being a mistake. Diamonddeath (talk) 02:14, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

I recall it was light orange, so perhaps under certain lighting conditions it might appear yellowish--Elveonora (talk) 14:34, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

heartless ??

judging by the talk between Obito and Madara , Obito is actually really heartless .. when the scene with kakashi stabbing him was shown many people thought it was a genjutsu but now that mean he is actually living with no heart!--Tchad1 (talk) 07:08, May 7, 2014 (UTC)

It was destroyed by Kakashi and subsequently restored when Obito became the Ten-Tails' jinchuriki.JOA20 (talk) 07:37, May 7, 2014 (UTC)
Probably even before. Remember that half of Obito's upper body is a White Zetsu goo, meaning Hashirama's cells. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 12:29, May 7, 2014 (UTC)
You are mistaken. The first time Kakashi stabbed Obito's heart, it indeed was a genjutsu. Afterwards, Kakashi stabbed his heart for real. The seal was applied onto Obito's old heart. A new heart obviously has grown because Hash regen + all the Shinju stuff.--Elveonora (talk) 13:44, May 7, 2014 (UTC)


Are we sure that he is actually dead? Madara said that he was "no more", but this could be because Black Zetsu has completely possessed his body. Patsoumas1995 (talk) 11:56, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

I think we should list him as "Presumed Deceased" for now. --Chrillbill (talk) 12:01, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
He was close to death so many times that I think it would be best to label him as presumably deceased for now--Elveonora (talk) 12:17, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Hell at this point I would go with Incapacitated. He's not supposed to die at all until Black Zetsu is removed form him right?--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 12:19, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
I guess. I still expect him now that he has both eyes to unlock his "true" power, overwhelm BZ (again) awake his own Rinnegan and pull out a redemption card.--Elveonora (talk) 12:26, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Gods I hope not. He already redeemed himself when he was having inappropriate relations with Madara's colon and saving Naruto.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 12:34, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
I also think he should be listed as presumed deceased. Munchvtec (talk) 12:39, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Incapacitated or Presumed Deceased, that's what I'd go with.--JOA20 (talk) 13:17, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Wasn't Black Zetsu only keeping Obito alive in the first place so he could retrieve Madara's Rinnegan, which happened last chapter? Thus I don't think he's alive anymore, and Black Zetsu is just using his body as a meat puppet. Also Obito wasn't breathing, his eye was closed too.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 19:55, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Didn't he say something like "Obito will remain alive as long as I'm bonded with him" earlier? He's certainly out cold right now, I don't think he's actually dead. His redemption will still be milked a bit more. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:09, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Obito already did his part, he saved and helped power up Naruto. Black Zetsu needed to keep Obito alive long enough for him to retrieve Madara's Rinnegan, which has happened. Then we see this chapter that Black Zetsu says Obito's gone, he isn't breathing and his eye is closed. Pretty clear cut that he's dead.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 00:01, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
Ok I'm confused, in the Return of Madara Arc section, it's stated he died when Madara took his eye, and that BZ took over his corpse, yet his status is "Incapacitated"? I can't change his status since someone has prevented it from getting edited. --Chrillbill (talk) 05:01, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
He's pretty clearly not dead. Kishi wouldn't off-screen a death of a major character and it was also stated that as long as Black Zetsu is attached, he's alive. Also, if Black Zetsu could control a corpse of Obito, he wouldn't have kept him alive for so long. It's clear that he needs him living, with chakra still circulating to use his powers. Kenny U (talk) Kenny U
He clearly is dead, Zetsu speaks of him in the past tense. Zetsu was keeping Obito alive for as long as his body would hold out. Essentially, he was maximising the potential but potential reaches an end point at some point or other, and it has. Pesa123456789 (talk) 17:03, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
You are kidding yourself if you seriously think Kishi would seriously kill a major character off-screen without so much as a flashback. You're as bad as those people who honestly thought Bee was dead.--Kenny U (talk) 23:40, May 22, 2014 (UTC)
The correct status to put on the wikia is incapacitated because we have no confirmation about his death. But obviously Obito is still alive, Kishimoto would not ever kill a main character off panel, especially not a tragic one as Obito needing of a closure for his life: the accomplishment of his "mission" to save the world and pathos scenes of reconciliation, where the main heroes will end to consider him again a full comrade. More, Madara has just admitted him to be the responsible for the tragedies of his life and the death of his most loved person: there is a classic clichè in the fictions when the bad guy reveal manipulations/wrongdoings toward a main good guy because arrogantly sure to have already won, in the end the victim get his payback becoming responsible for the persecutor's fall. Without cut anything to the future performances of Naruto and Sasuke able to save the world, we can expect that Obito will get just a parallel role to them--JK88 (talk) 17:35, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
Given that he wasn't affected by Infinte Tsukuyomi, I think Obito should be considered dead, since it affected even those who were sleeping. I see no reason to consider that he can be alive in some way. Abe 18:18,5/25/2014
And I'm making a decision to end this pointless argument. Zetsu stated that as long as he remains bonded to Obito, he remains alive. So "Incapacitated" is the appropriate designation as far as the information we have goes. When we're told he's dead or when Black Zetsu leaves him and we see him die, we'll list him as dead. Keep in mind that Might Guy was supposed to die, for all intents and purposes, when the Eight Gates expired, and Kishi "plotted" him to remain alive, so the same can still happen to Obito. That is all. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 18:33, May 25, 2014 (UTC)
So, someone decided to claim him dead :D I see the Kirabi case didn't teach you anything, guys. Obito won't die until he has proper resolve, it's obvious from the story point of view. Don't claim anything until stated. BZ never stated Obito would IMMEDIATELY die the moment he separates from him.Faust-RSI (talk) 08:32, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Black Zetsu said he was the only thing keeping Obito alive, so to me at least everything points to him being dead, and I think we should list him as "Deceased" for now, and if for some reason he would wake up and be fine later (which would make no sense) then we change it back. --Chrillbill (talk) 08:41, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
I doubt he is dead yet. He didn't even get his flashbacks. --Costeavladalexandru (talk) 09:49, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
@Costeavladalexandru Oh, we've seen more than enough flashbacks of young Obito, Rin and Kakashi. We've already seen what needs to be seen from Obito's past. --Chrillbill (talk) 09:59, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Black Zetsu did say that, but I find it rather unlikely that Obito is either dead, or will remain so for a long time. There was way too much talk about eyes working better as pair for both his Sharingan not being used for something greater. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 11:36, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
It should be presumed deceased for now, people who think Kishi would actually kill off a major character without closure don't know a thing about this manga. Also, there's a reason he wields both his eyes now.--Kenny U (talk) 11:49, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Obviously he's dead now. He took a kunai to the hand without regaining consciousness. He wasn't affected by Infinite Tsukuyomi. Black Zetsu explicitly called him dead. He's deceased.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 02:14, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
No he didn't, Black Zetsu said he was "no more" which could mean a lot of things. Look, he obviously has a role to fill in the narrative since he is one of only 5 people in the world in the vicinity of Kaguya. Until we get real confirmation, don't infer anything ok? We've been over this time and time again, and the exact same argument was made after 656 when Obito used Rinne Tensei. It's better to just wait. --Kenny U (talk) 23:21, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
In this case, I'd have to agree. Black Zetsu did say those things, but Kishi is painstakingly attempting to keep Obito in the story. If he was dead, there would've been no reason for Kakashi to "save" him from falling into a river of magma, nor to continue calling out to him in the chapter prior. Kishi still has plans for Obito that may or may not involve death. We should simply put Incapacitated and wait for clarity. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 23:28, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
...then why wasn't he affected by Mugen Tsukuyomi? Why didn't getting a KUNAI JAMMED IN HIS HAND wake him out? Why didn't the heat of the volcano wake him up? Seriously, everything points to Obito being dead.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 02:18, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
  1. Because you need to have your eyes opened for that. He was unconscious.
  2. Because he was knocked out cold. Have you ever been knocked unconscious? I have. Twice. You don't wake up until your body tells you to wake up. If he's in a comma, which is worse, even getting the lava on him wouldn't have woken him up.
In conclusion, you don't know what you're talking about. At all. We don't know that he's dead, so we're not saying so. Capish? Good. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 02:51, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
...even unconscious and sleeping people were affected by Mugen Tsukuyomi though. Yamato who was still unconscious inside Spiral Zetsu was taken in. Sleeping people were still taken in. The light from Mugen Tsukuyomi penetrated everything living except for Sasuke's Susano'o which provided a defense. If Obito was alive, he'd have been affected to like everyone else around the world.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 23:50, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
The argument on why he is alive is mainly one based on logic and an understanding on how Kishi writes his story. Kishi did not contrive a way to bring Obito to the final fight only for him to just be a corpse and serve no purpose. He did not have both Naruto and Kakashi show concern for his overall safety and save him if they knew he was dead (Naruto especially would react differently to a corpse than he would a living person). Furthermore there is a gap of time between Madara revealing his involvement in Rin's death and him and Obito returning from the Kamui dimension that is still unaccounted for. Anything could have happened during that time, including Madara putting Obito in a deep genjutsu (the last panels of them in the Kamui dimension feature Madara using the sharingan in a similar way Obito did to Kakashi when he genjutsu'd him) which would have made him avoid the Mugen Tsukuyomi. I bet you assumed he was dead after 636 when Madara tried to force him to use Rinne Tensei, or in 656 when he actually used Rinne Tensei, or even during many times after that. In situations like this it is best to wait for actual confirmation from the manga and not make assumptions like many have done in the past, please try to understand this time. --Kenny U (talk) 22:47, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
Guess now we can finally put this discussion to rest right? Next time, can everyone not jump to conclusions? It's best if we wait for official confirmation rather than vague statements from Black Zetsu.--Kenny U (talk) 13:32, June 25, 2014 (UTC)


how was obito uchiha affiliated with kirigakure??? (Sharoze001 (talk) 22:03, May 14, 2014 (UTC))

He controlled Kirigakure via Yagura for an undisclosed amount of time. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:09, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Both eyes?

Did he gets his right eye back? It's hard to tell if that's Black Zetsu's eye or his own. --Mandon (talk) 22:31, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

BZ does if you want to get technical--Elveonora (talk) 22:50, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Obito Falling

OBito's body did not fall to the ground only as stated here " Obito died as a result as his body fell to the ground, much to the chagrin of a solemn Kakashi." He actually teleported with the others. You can see ned to the waterfall (lava fall lol?) behind Kaguya. —This unsigned comment was made by Rex-05 (talkcontribs) on 08:38, June 4, 2014 (UTC).

This is true, Obito is seen falling along side the others, and I highly doubt it's for him to just plop into a vat of lava. --Kenny U (talk) 11:53, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

New infobox pic

I don't really like that his current one is so close-up, so what you say about this? --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 14:02, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

That's a lot better... the current one is too zoomed in on his face. --KirinNOTKarin98 (talk) 15:48, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
I agree with you on that. I'll just change it, can always be reverted if someone thinks otherwise --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 15:51, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
And to finish, one person chiming in is not enough. I am neutral on changing the image. Give other people a chance to voice their opinion and then have at it.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 18:03, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
That is why I said it could always be reverted later. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 18:05, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
The current one is better in my opinion.--Elveonora (talk) 20:12, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
I prefer the previous one. Norleon (talk) 22:11, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
Why if I may ask Norleon? :) --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 23:17, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
The proposed one is terrible in overall image quality. EDIT: If the photo must be changed to something less close up, however, I can start finding more options for you guys to choose from, starting with this. --Mandon (talk) 06:36, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
Because I prefer close-up images for infoboxes, maybe with a bit of the shoulder area shown at best. Also, with the previous one, we have a perspective that shows his face in a frontal view while in the new one, he looks a bit sidewards.
The second proposal is even less an option in my opinion, Obito looks too stereotypical evil on it. Norleon (talk) 11:18, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
There was a pic someone put on the infobox recently, think it was from Chrillbill (excuse spelling typos in that :P) that looked decent. Can't remember when it was, but it was fairly recently... --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 12:15, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
You mean this one? --Chrillbill (talk) 12:54, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
The one from Chrillbill, is better than the one from Mandon, from my point of view at least. But still prefer the one I uploaded, even though it is a bit sideways. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 13:41, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
How about this one then? It's further away than the current, bit still closer than my previous suggestion. It has a better angle than the one from Mandon. And it is a bit like the one from Chrillbill, except both his arms are down who he doesn't look so big. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 14:35, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that one looks pretty good Kasan. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 21:53, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
Great, think I'll wait to change it this time though, until more responds. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 21:56, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
 Support — Yeah, your last uploaded image is the best for Obito. —Shakhmoot Nadeshiko Village Symbol (Talk) 22:47, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
Changed the infobox pic for now. It's a fuller view on the character that is a more accurate depiction of his design as it shows his colors as well. However I think the pic I uploaded may have been a tad too small. If you're more experienced with uploading HD profile pics, you could pull the same frame on episode 372 (at 7:29) and re-upload it better. --Kenny U (talk) 14:38, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
And reverted, because you have no consensus. I'm also going to say this to all people: stop changing Obito's infobox image every single god-damn week, pick ONE and keep it that way. The constant need of changing it every single time a new episode is released is now getting ridiculous and disruptive. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 15:11, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Oh dang, my bad. Sorry about all that. In that case, can we vote on changing it? In my opinion, the current one looks kinda... off. It could just be me, and if that's the case we should keep it, but my current proposal is that we change it to a more appropriately sized version of the one I foolishly tried to push forward without a consensus. --Kenny U (talk) 15:29, August 14, 2014 (UTC)

Abilities he didn't use?

Wait, Obito didn't use most of the paths, right? Did he use the absorption soul technique? He didn't use the asura path or any of the path techniques other than the Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique right?Maybe the summoning of the gedo mazo counts as the animal paths, but this wiki is noting techniques he didn't use or claim to be able to use.--Deathmailrock (talk) 18:33, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Those who possess the Rinnegan can use the Six Paths Technique. Anyway, Obito stated that he could use the Human Path on Yamato, plus he used at least the Outer Path to control the six reincarnated jinchūriki and to resurrect Madara.--JOA20 (talk) 18:52, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
Madara taught him Six Paths Technique, not Two Paths Technique--Elveonora (talk) 19:06, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

So far we can't say if Obito was alive or dead.

The page state with certainty that Obito died after his last conversation with Madara/falling without Black Zetsu inside him, but actually it's pretty possible that he remained only uncoscious after that his body was controlled by the villains. The words of Black Zetsu depicting his status weren't never been able to give a clear answer (indeed the wikia mentioned him presumed deceased), just as the actions of Kakashi protecting Obito's body from the falling into the lava made think more to the Uchiha being still alive than to Kakashi preserving him for the later intervention of Naruto (when the copyninja hasn't still realized the powers of the boy just as everyone). In addition this chapter gives no evidence if Naruto is healing or reviving him. So I want just say that would be better to talk just about Naruto treating Obito (with the Uchiha giving evidence to be still alive), for postponing a clear statement about an heal or a revive only after to have got more info from the next chapters.--JK88 (talk) 13:24, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

It's very clear that he's alive. --Mandon (talk) 20:40, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Indeed. Based on the panel with Naruto touching him, he makes a sound. He appears to just be incredibly weak. But Naruto also puts his hand on Obito, and we know what that did to Gai. So maybe Naruto did something. Regardless, he (Obito) is quite alive. --Taynio (talk) 20:50, June 25, 2014 (UTC) Yay! Now we may finally get his second or third (at this point) redemption story.--Elveonora (talk) 21:02, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Obito has never got his redemption, for it he has to do something active for the save of the world as he wished in the past: returning to his old himself or an eventual mass resurrection were already stated not being things able to accomplish it. Obito rescuing the life of Naruto was the only element that could be seen as a real "world saving", but Obito's promise made to Rin, the foreshadowing of the potential of the two eyes, the last conversation with Madara and the likely parallel of Obito and Madara with Hagoromo and Hamura fighting for saving the world from the Juubi, presuppose a future development involving more actively Obito (and Madara too). More, the importance of Obito's future partecipation to the events has to be seen also under a more general point of view: Hagoromo's philosophy is that the peace is possible only through the collaboration and now very likely we will see people tied by conflictual relationships during all their lifetime (Naruto, Sasuke, Obito, Kakashi, Minato, Hashirama, Madara, Tobirama, in general Uchiha/Indra successors and Senjuu/Ashura successors) doing it through their common efforts against Kaguya, in the process demonstrating so that a mutual understanding is possible.
But by the way all this has nothing to do with my post, I wanted just to put in evidence that it's not clear if Naruto is healing or reviving Obito (and consequently if Obito was or less dead before).--JK88 (talk) 10:25, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

English Voice Actor

Where's the source that it's Vic Mignogna voicing him in Revolution? From what I've been told, he and Shisui aren't in the credits, and it sounds nothing like Vic in the game. {{SUBST:User:Sanji The Cook/sig}} 01:52, July 9, 2014 (UTC)

I agree, the voice actor sounds nothing like Vic. It sounds more like Todd Haberkorn. --MoonKingGuy (talk) 02:12, July 9, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, there is a distinct "Death the Kid" vibe I'm getting from that voice. (TenshoDama96 (talk) 02:44, July 9, 2014 (UTC))
Is that all you're going on is the fact that he sounds like Todd? That's not an official confirmation.. as likely as it might be. EDIT -- Nevermind he confirmed it on his twitter. --Mandon (talk) 09:05, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

Shukaku and Gyuuki

Why Obito is listed as their Jinchuuriki? As far as I am remember Naruto was considered their Jinchuuriki because they were a Chakra with a conscious inside of him--MERCURIOUS (talk) 17:57, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

Because it was him who gave Shukaku and Gyūki to Naruto?--Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna JOA20 18:02, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
They were just Chakra with no conscious. In Minato's case, we only considered him a Jinchuuriki when Yin-Kurama manifested itself inside of him. I don't think this happened with Obito.--MERCURIOUS (talk) 18:19, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
No no it didn't. I can't argue for nor can I argue against. So if you wish to remove it, I say you are free to do so until someone comes flying in screaming.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 18:24, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Pro-tip: These are the same pieces of chakra inside Naruto, who can talk and make chakra of their own. He may have had them briefly, but he did, in fact, have them. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 18:27, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Isn't Obito case the same as Kinkaku and Ginkaku, they also had Kurama's chakra but with no conscious.--MERCURIOUS (talk) 18:37, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
To explain further, the One and Eight-Tails didnt show any consciousness until they started speaking inside Naruto.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 18:40, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
True, but if they were incapable of consciousness in Obito they couldn't just 'gain' consciousness in Naruto. Nobody and nothing has stated or even discretely implied that Naruto being Naruto is what allowed them to gain consciousness. Maybe they just didn't feel like talking to Obito because... I dunno, the same reason they don't talk to Naruto unless he needs them. At the end of the day, we could always list him as a pseudo-jinchūriki if you really want to. --Atrix471 (talk) 18:52, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
"Seeing this topic, I shake my head in awe and then quietly depart from the premises" I still disagree that Naruto is a jinchuuriki of 1-8 Tailed Beasts--Elveonora (talk) 20:07, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Why? I mean, what would you classify as a jinchūriki? He can use their chakra, they have full sentience and their shared presence within him culminates in the Six Paths Sage technique. I don't see how he is anything but their jinchūriki. They exist separately, can help him separately, and have individual sentience, so he is the jinchūriki of all of them. --Atrix471 (talk) 20:11, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Because they are still inside Kaguya. Also Shadow Clones are conscious too and you don't consider them a separate entity.--Elveonora (talk) 20:19, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, no. Not again. This has already been resolved, despite Elve's continued persistence. Back on topic or let it drop. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 20:20, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Middle finger in the face =/= resolved. But if that's the language used here, so be it--Elveonora (talk) 20:22, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
Obito just took the Chakra of Shukaku and Gyuuki and passed them to Naruto, although he had them for minutes the Chakra didn't show any sentience, while they showed it inside Naruto. We don't know why only inside Naruto they showed consciousnesses, it maybe something Hagoromo did but we don't know. In Narutopedia, what define a Jinchuuriki is that he must have a Tailed Beast Chakra and that Chakra must have the appearance and must have a consciousnesses, and a pseudo-jinchuuriki is someone who have a Tailed Beast Chakra only and must be able to use in a way (like Kinkaku and Ginkaku). Obito didn't show these characteristic with Shukaku's and Gyuuki's Chakra at all.--MERCURIOUS (talk) 23:59, July 15, 2014 (UTC)
The definitions were twisted to no end just to suit some fanon theories of certain editors around here about Tailed Beast cloning and "no thing such as the true Tailed Beast" and other nonsense. A jinchuuriki is someone who has a Tailed Beast sealed inside of him/her, while a pseudo-jinchuuriki is someone who has Tailed Beast chakra, but not Tailed Beast itself. But herp derp, the said editors came up with "omg consciousness, shit, means Naruto's jinchuuriki of all, there's 18 Tailed Beasts now, omg" just because they spoke. And when i bring a valid point, I get ignored and told to **** off just because I'm a thorn in the ego of said people who came up with the nonsense but refuse to admit their own fallacy. These are the facts:
  • The Tailed Beasts save Yin Kurama are still inside of Kaguya, therefore they can't be inside of Naruto, check
  • Shadow Clones, chakra Minato and Kushina, Orochimaru, Hagoromo and so confirm that pieces of chakra can be conscious
  • That doesn't mean a piece of conscious chakra is the real character
The 8 "Tailed Beasts" inside of Naruto are no different than Minato and Kushina and their will perish once their chakras are spent up.--Elveonora (talk) 11:45, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
You get told to **** off because you will sit back and twist as hard as you can muster talking Nine-Tails in Minato means he's a jinchuriki but damned if talking One, Four, Five, and Nine in Naruto means he's a jinchuriki. Until such a time your theory is proven correct and the tailed beasts do in fact vanish completely when their chakra is spent, do everyone a favor, yourself included, and shut it.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 11:51, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
@MERCURIOUS: Yes, those traits weren't seen in Obito at all. Nor where they in Naruto until he met the Sage. Lovely food for thought I am sure.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 11:53, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
How about you do me a favor and remove speculation until proven that they are real?--Elveonora (talk) 12:13, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
@TheUltimate3: So, what about removing Shukaku and Gyuuki from his infobox?--MERCURIOUS (talk) 15:42, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Presumed Deceased?

In chapter 686, apparently he dies by sacrificing himself. Shall we classify him as Presumed Deceased for now? --TheTobi (talk) 12:28, July 23, 2014 (UTC)

In a week it'll be "Deceased", so how about we just wait?--Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna JOA20 12:33, July 23, 2014 (UTC)
You're right about waiting. For all we know, Naruto is going save Obito's life again.—Steveo920 (Talk) 8:39, July 23, 2014

Latest chapter note

I noticed in this weeks chapter Obito gave both his eyes to Kakashi, and seemed fully aware of what this would do (give Kakashi his powers and a Susanoo). I think it's worth noting in his dojutsu area that while he never used it on-screen, his eyes were capable of a Susaoo.

The logical reason I can give for him not using it on screen was that we know he was dying from his messed up life force, and using the Susanoo would have been less viable than his Kamui.

Just a footnote mind. If Kakashi's Susanoo can be listed in the Susanoo page, I think we should call it the Kakashi/Obito Susanoo, since it's Obito's eyes the ability comes from, hence, it being Obitos. —This unsigned comment was made by Hadrimon (talkcontribs) .

Physical resemblance to Naruto

I can't help but notice Obito looks remarkably like Naruto when he was a child. Should we make note of that in his appearance section?—Steveo920 (Talk) 20:21, August 12, 2014

No. They don't look that much alike. Naruto resembles like a lot of characters. Unless a character in the manga notes their similarities appearance-wise, it's unneeded information. WindStar7125 WindStar7125 Task (Talk) (Contributions) 01:44, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
Obito was clearly designed as Uchiha counterpart to Naruto. About mentioning resemblance, well, at most we should mention that they both wore goggles, similar color scheme, same goal, similar personality etc.--Elveonora (talk) 10:46, August 13, 2014 (UTC)


Time for another one of these before an edit war comes about. We can discuss original or this one? I don't understand where the consensus of the original being the absolute definitive we use comes from, but as someone who's been against it from the start, let me explain why I think it's inherently a flawed image and shouldn't be used.

  • Sloppy artwork
  • Bad angle
  • His eyes are bulging out.

Now, since Obito will be the mortally wounded & then the Jinchuriki in the next episode he appears in, there won't be any new opportunities to change it. The new image has better lighting, it showcases his hair properly, which is supposed to be more spiky than wavy, his expression is normal and calm, and his eyes aren't bulging out. Overall it represents his character far better than the original, which, quite frankly is a terrible image and never should have been an option, as I've stated before --Mandon (talk) 22:04, August 14, 2014 (UTC)

This single character has had his image changed 3 times in the past 3 months. The current one is fine.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 22:07, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
The suggested image is much better than the one that is up right now. Ultimate you shouldn't disparage something that can improve the article. I am in support of the suggested image.--Narutofox94 (talk) 22:32, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
The issue TU3 (and others, including myself) have is that every time a closeup of an anime character shows up in the recent episode, people feel the need to change it all the time. This isn't the first time this has happened, and this isn't the only character page that has gone through this tedious process. There is no point in constantly changing an infobox image when people feel like it. We have to come to a consensus on the image, and maintain it, unless the previous image is so bad/irrelevant that it has to be changed. I'm not targeting any one person, and I don't wanna sound angry, but the constant picture changing is annoying. WindStar7125 WindStar7125 Task (Talk) (Contributions) 22:41, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
What WindStar said. The infobox image on multiple character articles is being changed every single time the next episode is released and it's now disruptive. We can change the image at a later date but not right now. Do something more interesting for the wiki, like improving articles, instead of bickering over an image in an infobox. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 22:47, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Okay then so all you're saying is basically this. In spite of the pros
  • Better lighting
  • Better angle
  • Better image
  • More attractive in the article
you don't want to change it because we change it too much? I'm sorry but with all due respect that's a very weak argument and a terrible reason to be against an all around superior image, no matter how much it's changed. Additionally, the image couldn't be changed again from the proposed unless everyone comes to an agreement that white haired Obito is acceptable in the infobox, which I guarantee won't happen, so if we do change it this will be the final image. What logical reason is there not to use it if there's a significant leap in visual quality? --Mandon (talk) 23:11, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
I'm with Ultimate, Windstar, and Spey on this one. This conversation pops up on multiple talk pages every damn week, usually by the same user (or group of users), and its getting old very fast. The current picture is fine and the issues you've outlined with it are more an issue personal taste rather than actual problems with the image. Its high time we pick an image for these characters and keep it that way. We don't have to change the image everytime a new close up is provided. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 23:17, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
There won't be any new images, like I've pointed out several times already.. there won't be any new images of Obito available. Additionally, the image has only been changed twice, once from Kid Obito to a more close-up adult image and then to this. People attempting to randomly change the image only for it to get reversed don't count. I just don't feel like the current image is at all suitable to permanently represent the character, and so far none of you have presented any legitimate reasons as to why the proposed image isn't suitable besides 'we change it too much.' We haven't, so that argument is null. --Mandon (talk) 23:21, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Coincidentally, it recently has always been you, @Mandon, that wants to change infobox images because you don't like them. If we allow any user to whimsically change infobox images, it would be chaotic (edit wars, arguments, etc.). The image is fine, as long as it displays a character's first appearance in Part I or II and whatever requirements there is for infobox images. The current image is not terrible nor unneeded. No need to change it every time you see a good closeup in every new anime episode (which is feeling like every doggone week now). Like Spey said, do other things on the wiki, not change (or request changing) infobox images whenever you feel like it. WindStar7125 WindStar7125 Task (Talk) (Contributions) 23:30, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it our job as wiki editors to choose an image that's the most aesthetically pleasing in an article? If not, you guys really should examine your priorities because the sheer fact that people, including myself have been trying to change it often should not be a deciding factor in this. If you have an issue with the image, that's one thing, but so far you've raised no arguments on which image is better suited in the infobox, which should be the only deciding factor in this, not whether or not the current image is suitable by the standards of the site. Ask yourself, is the image better? Then ask yourselves again, is it really a big deal if it's changed one more time if the article benefits from it? --Mandon (talk) 23:30, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Emphasis on OUR JOB to choose images, not your job. We must reach a consensus. The consensus is, we don't change the image. The constant changing is pointless. Period. WindStar7125 WindStar7125 Task (Talk) (Contributions) 23:35, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
Emphasis on the fact that if I didn't care about your opinions, I would have continued trying to change it despite all the reverts until I get banned. I'm just trying to help you see a different point of view so you can maybe see where I'm coming from here. You can understand why choosing an inferior image just because you think we change it too often [despite only changing it twice] doesn't make sense right? With that being said, it doesn't matter what you're reasons are, and you're right, if there's a majority consensus it doesn't matter what I think, but I still think it's a worthwhile investment of my time to at least try to weigh the pros and cons to help anybody reading this can formulate an opinion on the matter.
But alas, to beat a dead horse and repeat myself for the fourth time on the matter.. we don't change the image constantly nor has it been changed constantly. It's been changed twice. These are facts. --Mandon (talk) 00:35, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
You're missing the point. We are not talking about one specific instance with an infobox image being changed, we're talking about multiple instances with multiple character infobox images that are being changed every week because one user (or a group of users) don't like the current images in place. Every time when a new anime episode is out, and displays closeups of characters' faces, whether it be Madara, Sasuke, Nagato, not just Obito, infobox images have to be changed because one or a few people out of many editors (who aren't even rollbacks or sysops) don't like them. Now where is the sense in that? I'll reiterate what Spey said: Spend time doing other things on the wiki. Stop worrying about infobox images and work on improving articles, and make yourself a better contributor. And no, this is not a worthwhile investment, it is redundant and a waste of time. No offense, but you and other editors making big deals out of little things such as images need to find a hobby. WindStar7125 WindStar7125 Task (Talk) (Contributions) 01:01, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
Kinda contradictory saying we should focus on improving the article when the infobox image is part of said article. Does it REALLY matter about the image changing? It just sounds like you guys are just sick of seeing these discussions, but sometimes better images of characters do appear. The image should reflect the character as best as it can and the proposed image does so better than the current one. Basically put do we always see Obito bulging his eyes out? No we don't so it needs to be changed. The image that is currently being used was the best one we had at the time and so this site had to use it. Though now we have a better one and you are opposed to it because you don't want to change it. Also Windstar about editors concerning about images, it's pretty damn important. Naruto is a manga and manga is very image heavy, it's as important as the dialogue that goes with it. A wiki article is dependent on images at times, a point being jutsu articles. It would look awful without a image of said jutsu.--Narutofox94 (talk) 03:33, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
It's not that I condone constantly trying to replace high quality images with inferior ones simply because of some kind of addiction to change, which is the reason I feel so many people have tried to edit, as an example, Sasuke's PT2 infobox image even though the current one is high res and perfect. With that being said, we're at a junction in the anime where Perriot consistently half-asses a lot of the artwork on a lot of characters. leading to deformities.. especially on Obito, due to his scar. So for characters introduced during this time, such as Obito, it's a rare opportunity to get an image that actually matches the level of quality found in various other character articles, but these opportunities happen and it feels wasteful to not take advantage of them simply because of what other people [including myself admittedly] have done. --Mandon (talk) 04:27, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
You said it yourself though, regardless of whether you feel the image is the best for the job, someone will come along thinking otherwise and try to have it changed, just as in your Sasuke example. We're at a point were things are changing but also winding down. Obito's no longer in the manga and pretty soon he'll look different in the show, but until then people will constantly be trying to change his Infobox image to ones they feel are better. The same is true for Madara and will likely be true for Kaguya, Hagoromo and all the other recent manga characters when they appear in the anime. At this point it makes more sense to stick with what we've got, wait until he undergoes his change and then open it up for debate one last time instead of doing it on and off like we do now.--Soul reaper (talk) 04:49, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
@Madon: And we're not changing it because that was the majority consensus. This is not going to turn into a pissing match about what our "greater duty" as editors should be. The picture shows Obito in a form all fans can recognize, in his unmasked state, facing the camera and displaying his well-known dōjutsu. The lighting is fine, not nearly as terrible as you try to make it seem. His eyes are not "bulging", they are open, which, again displays his signature dōjutsu in a decent manner. The quality of the image is also fine for an infobox image.
@Narutofox94: Please don't over dramatize things. The article is not suffering from the current image. It is not detracting from the page. It is literally the preference of one or two users to continue changing his image (and the images of others) every time they get something they perceive as better, which, as you've seen today, is not sitting well with a good majority of the community. Move onto other more important things now. The image will remain until such a time that the majority of the users on this site feel that it should be changed. No more comments are needed after this. The discussion is closed. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 04:51, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
The discussion doesn't close just because you say it does, there are still other editors on here besides us. Regardless of the fact that more people may not chime in. Yes, the image is technically suitable, but a better one has arisen and so far you guys have presented absolutely no reasons to keep the current image other than, "People need to stop trying to change it, the current image is suitable enough!" Who cares if it is? The initial image of Adult Obito was also suitable, yet we changed it. Why? Because it was an improvement and the current image was the best at the time, and now it isn't.. that's sort of how infobox images work, they change and update as newer and better ones arise. If you don't feel like the proposed is an improvement, then feel free to express why.. otherwise I'll gladly point out how weak your argument is so people just finding this discussion can decide which is the better course of action.. if they don't, then as you said it's done. As for what Soul reaper said.. that's not really going to happen. This is it, after Obito appears again Kakashi will stab him, his hair will go white and he'll become the TTJ, and as such there will be no more options unless a full anime remake comes out 10+ years from now. What's honestly the harm in replacing the current image when a better one is released, and there will be no more options from here on out? And that's my final thought on the matter. --Mandon (talk) 05:09, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
The problem with changing it is that quiet a few people don't think it is better, including me. Yes maybe his eyes are a bit better in yours, but it's not like it's bad in the other one. And the light in yours a truly bad, he looks ill. And as it has been said countless times before, the current one is fine, no need for change. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 08:08, August 15, 2014 (UTC)
The problem with the current one is that it's shot at an odd angle (he's hunched over), the signature eye pattern is drawn incorrectly (Kamui is supposed to look like a shuriken, not a propeller), and it's not in as full a view of Obito's portrait. Can we just agree to change it one final time? The one uploaded is brighter, is in the Kamui dimension (something that is synonymous with the character), and is generally shot at an angle that seems more profile like. It also looks closer to his manga incarnation which is important. I understand why you guys are so annoyed with the constant changes, but this will likely be the last one no matter what, because Obito is losing this design very soon in the anime and will go into Juubi Jinchuriki form. At that point, no one will suggest anymore replacements, so why not make this last change? --Kenny U (talk) 17:55, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
To play devil's advocate, Kenny.. you can't at all see Obito's mangekyo when it's downsized for the infobox. In any case the community made their decision and their decision is no, so it's best just to leave it, even though I agree with you for the most part. --Mandon (talk) 18:48, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

Restoring the Legacy section

I wish to restore the legacy section for this page. Of course, I cut out a lot of the unnecessary information, and I will continue to do so to make sure it is perfect. I feel Obito is a character who warrants a legacy section because his actions had a profound affect on the world of Naruto. --Kenny U (talk) 15:32, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Why was it removed? What good reason is there for it to be removed? I think it's fine when it was there. WindStar7125 WindStar7125 Task (Talk) (Contributions) 16:37, August 19, 2014 (UTC)
As he was essentially dead for most of the series (to everyone but himself and Zetsu), I do believe he warrants a legacy section to highlight the effects left on Kakashi's life.
Anything beyond that however, no.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:53, August 19, 2014 (UTC)
That's why we can title it "Legacy & Influence" or simply "Influence", you know. Xfing (talk) 10:19, August 20, 2014 (UTC)

Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki

Could somebody with permission change Shinju to Ten-Tails in the infobox?--BeyondRed (talk) 05:57, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

ask an admin, you see know if dumb asses just stopped messing with pages like this then permission wouldnt be needed. Munchvtec (talk) 06:35, September 5, 2014 (UTC)
In my honest opinion, just because someone once changes a character's infobox image isn't a good reason to lock the page--Elveonora (talk) 10:07, September 5, 2014 (UTC)
I completely agree. I didn't even know the page was blocked until I tried to do what he asked. Munchvtec (talk) 13:02, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

Obito's jinchuriki color.

Hi, everyone. I just noticed about Obito's transformation color. Obviously the special colored chapter of him becoming jinchuriki colored him I think purplish-grey. Apparently, Obito's color transformation is green or light green. And it's been confirmed in the manga on one of the volume's cover. This could be the same issue as Sasuke's Rinnegan. Can I change edit and add this information? And Should we write a trivia about it? Thank you. THANKYOU Small brother (talk) 18:39, September 18, 2014 (UTC).

It's white in the manga too--Elveonora (talk) 19:32, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
Really? When?? THANKYOU Small brother (talk) 20:07, September 18, 2014 (UTC).
Volume covers. It's not green there but white/grayish, the green is just lighting/shadowing--Elveonora (talk) 20:10, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
You mean this? [1]. THANKYOU Small brother (talk) 20:18, September 18, 2014 (UTC).
Yes, that's just lighting. Chapter 652 cover shows him clearly white.--Elveonora (talk) 21:10, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

Obito's PARENTS?

so i noticed something while i was watching some old episodes ( the obito flashbacks tbh )when obito was in his room looking at rin's photos there's a picture of 2 people there . Could they be Obito's parents? . If yes then i think we should create a page for both of them--Cassie122 (talk) 19:03, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

Nothing confirms that.--Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna JOA20 19:05, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
you sure? because the man look like Obito so he could be his father--Cassie122 (talk) 19:25, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
He could even be his uncle, for all we know.--Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna JOA20 19:34, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
I doubt it's his uncle really . An uncle wouldn't act like that tbh . It's more possible that they're his parents . these 2 people are definitely related to Obito so i think we should create a page for them . oh btw they appear on the manga too chapter 603 p9 . i can give you the manga panel if you want --Cassie122 (talk) 19:56, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
Even if those are his parents, we don't know anything about them, except that they are probably dead. Then again, probably. This does not warrant an own article at all. Norleon (talk) 19:59, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
For now, I'd suggest you put the required information on the image's page. If you wish to create a page about them, feel free to do so, but as Norleon said, they don't really warrant an article, so I think it would be deleted right away.--Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna JOA20 20:01, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
