    What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    Your version of the tale of tobi...not exactly who you think is more logical as tobi, or why someone can or can't be tobi.

    ---------- Post added at 01:18 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:57 AM ----------

    My version: tobi is a man, or more than man who was born and reborn, with the death of others...and he was born three times. First time his birth came at the cost of the death of uchiha izuna. The talented young brother sacrificed his eyes for his clan. Yet to hide his shame, from the fall from a genius to a blind week man, he first worn a mask with no eyeholes and called himself 'tobi'. Everyone thought izuna to be dead, except for his brother madara. Thus tobi's first birth came to take place with the death of izuna. Then some day tobi also died, leaving behind the mask. It was again taken up by madara once he fled from hashirama. In the battle of VOTE madara sacrificed one eye. For his one remaining eye he made an eyehole in the mask. And thus tobi was reborn for the first time. This tobi made yahiko form akatsuki, controlled mizukage, but most importantly took a kid called obito under his wings...a kid who would go on to wear the mask later on. Thus 'tobi' has been a nobody, but a legend of the defeated, of the hated and of the forgotten. More than a man, who was only a refuge at first, then an ambition to power, then a nihilistic escape to peace. But there is one last tobi left by the name of uchiha sasuke, when tobi becomes god of vengeance...all negative emotions climaxing into one explosive, destructive force.

    Obviously i don't expect this to come true, but i wish it were. Call it a personal fanfic if you want. I was thinking we narutards might share those private musings of ours about tobi. I personally would be particularly interested to see if anyone has a story connecting tobi and zetsu, cause i've a hunch that something like that is gonna happen in the canon.

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    I like the idea of "Tobi" being a symbol - sth like Batman is <especially in Nolan movies> and that different ppl where taking on the mantle of Tobi. But everything suggest it won't be that way <hell, if the newest flashback would told us that there was, indeed, some Tobi guy BEFORE Obito took that mantle - would be cool>

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    well , batman is batman ... tobi is just a miserable man , why would he make a symbol lol
    symbol of epic failure ?
    THE UCHIHA LOGIC:
    "brother follows hiw on path? destroy konoha " uchiha sasuke
    "the village wants you not to interfere with politics? coup-d'etat" uchiha fugaku
    "coup-d'etat on the way? obliterate entire clan" uchiha itachi
    "clan wants to make peace? destroy everyone everywhere" uchiha madara
    "10 years old crush dead?infinite tsukyumi" uchiha obito

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    I would make Tobi someone ancient like the Uchiha clan's ancestor, the elder son of the Rikudou sage.
    He would keep his mask on until Madara would be defeated and then take it off, revealing his identity as the ancestor and Madara's superior

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    Uchiha Izuna. Would be awesome to show what two brothers could achieve by simply working together on one goal (even though having a versus skirmish every now and then, just to get better). Less Hashirama DNA, Less Rinnegan and Less Edo-Crapsei. More pure Uchiha hax. Uchiha Obito In Distress is awful no matter how you look at it.

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    If I had my way, Tobi would be Izuna... and Madara would murder him in front of Sasuke's eyes, bringing back memories of Sasuke and Itachi's last talk. Sasuke would ask Madara what kind of a man would kill their brother, and Madara will laugh and say "I dunno, you tell me." Then Sasuke would rage and declare that he'll destroy him.

    Yeah...

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    I'd make Tobi either Izuna or Madara, since that makes more sense. The problem is keeping either young with black hair, but there can be many Tobi. it can be like Rule of Two Sith training from Star Wars, possibly combined with the taking up of mantle like in American comics. The original Tobi trains his successor, who either kills him or the original dies naturally or at hand of another. Then this cycle continues until Tobi meets Sasuke.

    Obito would not be involved, like he wasn't supposed to be until Kishi changed his mind.

    Someone which doesn't require to ret-con the cronology to explain it and that wouldn't make it appear that the character broke the fourth wall to keep the mistery to the fans.

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    Tobi would be Ichiraku Teuchi and I'd make it WORK!

    Think about it... every day ninjas come into his ramen stand and complain about their miserable fates, their dead comrades and loved ones... one day he was just fed up with all the misery and started to think about the ninja world as a fucked up place...

    And then Ayame got killed by ninjas! Uncalled-for and a completely pointless death...

    Ichiraku: "Thats it... if none else is going to do something about this, then I'll do it myself!!"

    All his knowledge about the ninja world could easily be explained by "he listens to all kinds of ninjas every single day of his life"... thats also why he kept his ramen shop and took on a secret identity: so that he could continue to spy on everyone!

    Of course none would suspect "the ramen guy" except for some sly foxes like Uchiha_Blood and me... so it would come as a fucking OMG plot-twist for everyone else. But when thinking about it in hindsight, everyone would have to admit "uhm yeah... this makes sense! He's old enough so even the time-line fits... holly sh..!"

    Re: What would you have done with 'tobi'?

    Well i would have made him Rikudo sennin elder son... Then he would really be the darkness in this manga... One that survived since RK's time till now shaping the events in the manga and having a hand in what happened to Madara as well. In the end the circle would close with Naruto as the younger's son reincarnation OR his legacy, his decentant eding up saving Tobi something like with Nagato.

    He would be so perfect as Tobi, I mean he would be "no one" ( since he isn't some famous ninja pussy ), and he would stay true to the nature of looking underneath the underneath:
    ninjas would be fooled by his kind appareance, and never suspect a thing.

    How much potential wasted...
