Re: Question

Shōkan is the normal summoning of someone (into court etc.), kuchiyose refers to summoning a ghost or so through a medium. • Seelentau 愛 12:50, December 6, 2015 (UTC)

Itachi has naturally low chakra reserves.

Please don't try to change the article so he has average or above average reserves with that. Itachi even in Part I, when he was not sick and healthy could only use the Mangekyo THREE times a day. That's it. And one Mangekyo Sharingan Technique we know costs more than 30% of his total chakra. He has low reserves regardless of his illness.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 06:20, February 2, 2016 (UTC)

re: novels

Nothing changed. They still are non-canon. Just like fillers are non-canon. We note fillers in articles, so why not the novels? WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic.svg 01:30, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

An extension of the manga? That's not necessarily true. Sure, it "fills in the gaps" of the manga, but a lot of it is still filler, and thus, non-canon. We note non-canon movies as well in articles, so there's no reason not to note the novels there too. WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic.svg 01:34, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Stuff such as? Things are canon when Kishi says they are. If he doesn't indicate nor come out and say "this is a continuation of the manga" then it's not canon. WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic.svg 01:36, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Okay sure. Still doesn't mean that the entire anime is canon all of a sudden. Again, if Kishi does not indicate a certain media is a continuation of his manga in some way, then it's not canon. WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic.svg 01:40, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
No it doesn't. An author's involvement alone does not make things canon (I used to think the same way, so I understand). Kishi literally wrote the script for Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie but it's not considered canon here because he never indicated or said "this is a continuation of the manga" like he did for The Last and Boruto (notice how in Naruto's article, the only movies in the main branch are The Last and Boruto, not Road to Ninja despite Kishi's heavy involvement in it; all other movies have their own section under the "In Other Media" tab; why those movies aren't documented in that tab, I have no idea).
If an author's involvement alone in a series makes things canon, then by that logic, all things that the author is not involved in is non-canon, which is untrue (For instance, Star Wars. George Lucas is the creator of Star Wars. However, he had no involvement at all in the new SW movie The Force Awakens, due to him selling the rights of SW to Disney, but it's considered canon regardless. An author's involvement alone does not decide what's canon or not).
Canonicity is decided by a declaration in which whoever owns chief rights to a series confirms a work pertaining to that series is an official continuation of the author's original and main body of work. What is "canon" is declared by whoever has the chief rights of a series, which in the vast majority of cases, it's the original author of a series. In the unique case of Star Wars, George Lucas sold those rights to Disney, so now Disney decides what projects in SW now are canon and which are non-canon.

Re: Tsukuyomi

When did Kakashi ever say Itachi could kill him with Tsukuyomi? It's been years since I've read those chapters, but I don't recall that. I specifically remember many people making a big deal of the Kurama Clan arc, when they established Yakumo could kill people with the potency of her genjutsu. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:22, March 11, 2016 (UTC)

Still doesn't show me anything from canon establishing genjutsu can kill. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:33, March 11, 2016 (UTC)
I have tankobon scans for the entire manga, if you can give me a chapter, I can upload and ask Seelentau for a translation. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 13:41, March 12, 2016 (UTC)

The Program

I apologise for the very late reply m8; Use YGOPro or DEVPro, both function in pretty much the same way. I would've suggested DuelingNetwork a while back (which is an online program, and you'll have to download the two suggested prior), but it's dealing with "cease and desist", so you'll struggle hard with the game without pictures, even more so if you're a newbie. Hopefully you'll find this message useful. :)--BerserkerPhantom (talk) 18:03, March 26, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Names

mmh, no. Katakana are used, among other reasons, when the word is non-Japanese, when it's a technical/scientific term (animal name, etc.) or simply when the author (or whoever) wants the sentence/term to look "cool". Going with your example, the Japanese word for weasel would either be written in Kanji or Katakana, depending on the context (for example, in the Japanese wikipedia, animal names are always written in katakana). There are also characters whose first and last name are written in hiragana or katakana. You could compare it to italics in the Latin alphabet (some transcription systems prefer to caps words that are originally written in katakana, but the system we use doesn't). • Seelentau 愛 16:51, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

All I did was block editing for a day. The only indefinite protection in the page is move protection, which from the looks of the protection logs, kinda looks was requested way back in November 2014. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:22, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

Amenotejikara momentum

Could you elaborate on what you meant with your recent addition to Amenotejikara? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:10, May 5, 2016 (UTC)


BZ is actually an abbreviation for the Black Zetsu that we often use (in case you didn't know). Ravenlot 27 (talk) 14:51, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

Fire affinity

Sorry, I provided a wrong explanation for the revert, so I'mma go to you directly: Who gave you the idea that most Uchiha had Fire Release for an affinity? Also, how is Sasuke's usage of two natures as a genin noteworthy, when we have people like Boruto who can use 3???--BerserkerPhantom (talk) 03:49, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

"Now, if they have an affinity for another element, they will struggle to master the Fireball <...>" - not how affinities work, mate.--BerserkerPhantom (talk) 04:19, July 11, 2018 (UTC)
In a vacuum, yeah, but it doesn't make it harder for the person to learn the other natures, which is what you're suggesting.--BerserkerPhantom (talk) 04:27, July 11, 2018 (UTC)

Naruto punching Deva Path

I haven't reverted it because I don't recall the exact reference and how it happened, but there is an instance of Nagato's control over the bodies sort of slipping. At some point after we see actual Nagato during the fight, there's a moment when he coughs blood over the strain and Konan gets worried. I don't remember if Naruto landed a punch, but I think that's what that sentence was about. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 04:30, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

Madara's Wood Clones

In the anime episode 333 they are shown with EMS activated once created, you have to watch a high quality version of the episode and zoom in to see it. FlatZone (talk) 01:36, March 17, 2020 (UTC)

Well cite those instances and add it then, you didn't cite it before. FlatZone (talk) 04:17, March 17, 2020 (UTC)

This series does not consist of manga only, and when you add a claim like that you have to cite the sources for it. I was just point that out. Good day. FlatZone (talk) 04:35, March 17, 2020 (UTC)

Check the timeline out. They were def not 2. Minato DIED at the age he was given, in fact all of them have their death ages. Minato is older than the Ame Orphans, being 4-5 years older than Nagato, 5-6 years older than Konan and 6-7 years older than Yahiko. Minato may have very well rose to chunin in the same year he became Genin, and maybe even Jonin. So he could have easily no longer have been a part of Jiraiya's team by the time Jiraiya met the Orphans. BloodOfTheArchon (talk) 02:22, November 8, 2020 (UTC)

Ō and ū

From what I can tell, most of your edits since the UCP migration have been made using the visual editor. You can change that setting at Special:Preferences. In the "editing" tab, in the "editor" section, there's a drop down menu with editor options. You can change it back to "source editor". I don't know how it looks in the visual editor, but in source editor, the old editing toolbox with extra characters and wiki code is still available at the bottom.
