,Now that I think about it, I believe he did sense Obito in the scene, but not not as him but the masked man, that prompted him to do KB later. With this, it’s plausible that Obito’s chakra’s feeling had drastically change due to body modifications and all.
,I don’t know if Itachi’s story of them as the first true persons to awaken it must really be valid, considering that MS can be obtained by experiencing such severe emotion of losing someone, may it be witnessing or doing it with own hands. So it’s possible that some may have awakened it ages ago before the two acquired it, only that they happened to be unknown in the midst. It was also noted that clan members continuously did the process along the way but we didn’t know of other persons who got it aside from the ones we know already. So either way it’s kinda possible others acquiared it, but became unnoticeable unlike the primary characters.Quote:
,The other way can also be that full extreme trauma must be evident, which in case could be present only to the people who obtained it. Just a secondary case though.
Obito's body modifications shouldn't have had an impact. Orochimaru had far greater modifications and he was still recognizable. Aoi had no trouble sensing and differentiating Shisui's chakra from Danzo's chakra. Obito having half his body as Zetsu material shouldn't have affected the other half, not to the point where he was a completely different person.
Sensing someone is kinda common trait... Many ninjas shown to sense that SOMEONE is coming, but pin pointing whose chakra is it.. Its an entirely different thing. So it will be a stretch to assume that you ll be able to recognize the chakra of a specific someone in the middle of a fast paced intense fight (Unless you are a sensory nin)
,Thanks to Byakugan and his sensor skills he did it. Who did recognize him in such state? Tobirama? Yeah but not as saying he had detected Orochimaru but detected he had Hashirama’s cells in him. And then praised Sarutobi for raising a fine student. I really believe the overall aspect of chakra is affected, thus made him undetectable as Obito even with Minato’s cloak.Quote:
,The story is still arguable though. Also, in that setting my second case would suffice that full extreme trauma must be evident to awaken it, that being absent in others’ cases. About your claim of the other additional option so that MS is awakened, we can only hold assumptions to it, but while not being revealed, we can stick to the original one being substantiated in the manga.Quote:

,I did not say you've said it. Point is, there's no way he could have sensed Obito. I meant he didn't have the access to sensing Tobi as Obito since he wasn't able to perform the finger trick (it was out of option). He needs that ability to sense chakra according to you, right? But there was no act, so it's moot. That's what I meant. Even then, again Minato's finger trick is designed to detect enemies' presence only, not the exact person whose chakra belongs to, which requires another sensory deal. Tobirama is a sensor. Even without that finger trick his sensory skill is evident, which Minato doesn't have.

@ Rikudou King
If you meant by finger trick what is mentioned by Kingof Night, then it do not indicate that this trick can be useful in identifying whose chakra is this.
I mean this trick can tell that there is chakra of some people ahead but you can't feel whose chakra is that.
