It's not based on what's shown in the manga or else you'd drop it. The Rinnegan has multiple circles to represent the 6 paths of chakra. The Uzumaki symbol is a whirlpool to represent the Whirlpool country, where they come from. They have absolutely nothing to do with each other in any way at all.Originally Posted by marshall313
The only other Senju out there is Tsunade, and without Kurama she dwarfs Minato in power.Quote:
Except that hasn't happened. Can you tell me the name of Sakura's parents?Quote:
How about Ino's mom? Chouji's mom? What clan was Mikoto in before she was married to Fugaku? None of it matters. None of it. And it's not about curiosity either, or else you wouldn't have immediately jumped to claiming he was related to the strongest clan in the manga.
You mean this guy and his wife ? Kishi has been looking for a time to introduce them in the Manga, but couldn't. So he stuffed them in a movie.
I don't remember anything stating that Minato and Tobirama are not related, but I won't get into that. I think Minato learned how to use Hiraishin from a scroll and seems to be the only one to improve on it. There's no seeming relation between Orochimaru and Tobirama but Orochimaru still copied and improved Edo Tensei. Hell, we know there's nothin between Sasuke and Kakashi other than sensei, but Sasuke still used chidori and added variants to it.
Or Hiruzen could have suggested Minato learn Hiraishin due to his quick reflexes and thinking, and showed him the scroll. I don't think Hiruzen taught Minato how to use HIraishin. Nor do I hope Hiruzen knows it.
Yeah, I knew about that. I just didn't consider it canon since it happened in the movie and not the manga. Even if it is canon, it goes to prove my point that unless your parents are Uchiha or Senju related, it doesn't matter who they are, and any argument about heritage, usually is just a way to imply that one character is more special than they've been shown to be.Originally Posted by KingOfNight
I mean, try this on for size:
"Oh shit, Mikoto has black hair! She's probably a Senju, right? That makes Sasuke twice as powerful as your normal Uchiha! The best Uchiha EVER!!!"
Knowing or copying the hiraishin and its variants perfectly, even the finger type of sensing, it's impossible that minato just copied that because he idolized tobirama, there must be some reason on why minato did that, and the best reason is that he did that as a memento of someone special to him.
for me it's only the hiraishin that links them.
namizake clan is mysterious though.
kakashi may be related because of the hair i guess.
Well first of all its 2nd copying 4th we know that there was no hiraishing in tobirama's arsenal kishi is just trolling ... you know what I mean
anyway whole minato copying jutsus is also false - i've been saying this since we saw it ... it is completely illogical for Rasengan being created out of bijudama - Naruto tried to use FRS and it went to bijudama - thus by doing this only logical conclusion would be that Naruto would be unable to use FRS in kyuubi mode -- why? simple if situation A leads to B and only to B it cannot lead to C how come naruto is able to do C when it should always come into B ... kishi was most likely high writing that chapter because it makes no sence whatsoever
Tobirama uses Hiraishin in the flashback, doesn't he?
I rather think that Tobirama is related to Jiraiya. And yes, that would make him related to Tsunade, which could explain why she tried to kill him for peeping at her, and also why they never hooked up. *shrug*
the more chapters I read the more I think it's likely. if naruto is coming to an end I think kishi would want to tie up loose ends
tobirama died when sarutobi was a very young man...
when tsunade met naruto she didn't even know who he was...I think she would have known her relative(seeing how she lost everyone she loved except jiraiya up to that point)
also,shisui was well known for his shunshin tech...
it is also possible that jiraiya taught minato the tech...or atleast told him about it.just like he passed on rasengan to naruto...
