    Why didn't Ao examine Madara during the 5-kage meeting?

    Remember how Ao used the byakugan on Danzou and found that he has a sharingan and saw the specific areas with different chakra (Shisui's).

    I remember him saying that he recognizes it because he fought Shisui...but it was clear that he could determine that there were two different chakras in Danzou. And later we found out that Danzou has 3 types of chakra (his own, shisui, hashirama)

    Now my question: Did he even examine Madara when he warped in during the meeting (and saved Sasuke from acid death)?

    If we apply the same principles of Kakashi's sharingan, then Ao's byakugan must be active all the time and he should have seen that Madara has at least two different chakras....his own and Hashirama's.....(or, at the very least, that he's a big pile of zetsu goo ). Like I pointed out, he should have seen a little Hashirama goodness inside Danzou's arm too....and seeing madara, he should have noticed that it's the same type of chakra.

    In any case, I think Ao should have seen something about Madara, Zetsu, or either's techniques. If not, he needs to be more on his toes with that....otherwise I wish that Danzou and Co did steal that eye back!

    Any thoughts, or is Ao useless? I mean really, he didn't even notice all the zetsu spores on everyone in that meeting....kinda pathetic right? he was all braggin about figuring out the 4 mizukage was being controlled and then he blows it.

    it looks like Ao can deactivate his Byakugan. We saw him activate it and deactivate it. Plus, when Tobi appeared, there was no veins, if I recall. Veins indicate Byakugan being active. Maybe Ao couldn't use Byakugan rapidly in a row. He may also not have thought Tobi would have had another chakra source and was actually Madara.

    Because Ao wasn't there and he was committed in tracking down another traitorous bastard that's why...and we can't apply the same principles as with Kakashi's sharingan....Ao can activate/deactivate his Byakugan

    Good call, I forgot that he left to chase down danzou before Madara arrived. That pretty much negates my topic all together . Good memory dude!

    Hiking_Bear brings up a great point that Ao could see past the seal on Danzou's arm.....so why didn't any Hyuuga figure out something with Danzou for all those years that he had the Sharingan and arm thing. I wonder if Danzou's seal only controlled the Hashirama portion of it....because he was worried that it would take over his cells....maybe the seal didn't "hide" the Sharingans only Hashirama's chakra.

    I would also agree that Hinata would be able to do anything that Ao can do...i believe in the past she's been able to determine different chakra types with the byakugan.

    Who says he didn't?

    Every ninja there was sizing Madara up, it's not like they held a get together to point out who noticed what afterwards.

    Possibly he does know it, but it wasn't shown to us readers yet. Because if he simply had said it in a manga panel, several surprises wouldn't have existed in the later storyline.

    This thread has been locked, because the answer to the question is pretty obvious since Ao wasn't at the scene when Madara arrived.

    PS:also the posts containing explicit information and discussion about Hyuuga/Byakugan in general, Hinata, or Ao were moved to Any hope for byakugan? thread. Please continue the discussion there.
