The last chapter pretty much solved the mystery, imo. Juugo can absorb natural energy and transform and therefore theoretically harm Juubito. So if he somehow transfers his abilities to Sasuke, he'll be able to deal damage. Now, the question is how that would be possible. The cursed seal is out of the question since Itachi got rid of it. Maybe that summoning had to do something with it. I just don't want Sasuke to turn into something hideous again. Your thoughts?
Kishi is undoubtedly going to find some way to make Sasuke relevant in this battle, it's likely to be through Juugo. Somehow Juugo is going to know some hidden technique to transfer his own ability to utilise Natural Energy to Sasuke, or alternatively Orochimaru could just show up.
I'm wondering if Sasuke knows how to perform the Cursed Seal...if he knows it, then perhaps he can use Juugo somehow to apply the Seal on himself...there's also the possibility that Orochimaru will show up and do something about that, because it's not that simple...if we take a look back, to how Sasuke got the Cursed Seal, then it was Orochimaru who applied it, but it took a special seal and some pills for Sasuke to activate the full potential of the Cursed Seal...
Yeah, it was too complicated, not to mention the change that was so hideous it was painful to watch it. But I wouldn't like Sasuke to get the Cursed Seal again, much less the help from Orochimaru. I think Juugo may have found another way, which is why Sasuke specifically wanted to save him and Naruto.
remember the taka vs killer bee fight.
juugo did help sasuke recover from injuries.
gotta think he can do something like that to sasuke but in a different version,prioritizing natural energy.
Although, I'm wondering where's the catch. Sage Mode and Juugo's Sage transformation can't be the same thing, even though they both use natural energy.

And there's a third sage mode as well right?
And now that I say that, and if it's true, it's interesting how strong feelings can initialize Dragon Sage mode, and at the same time they are required for the appearance of the sharingan as well...so in theory it's quite suited for Sasuke (as we've seen with the Cursed Seal as well in the past)
I think at this point, going by Juugo's devotion, it can be said, that Juugo will give his life in order to transfer his powers(if it ever comes to that) in a similar manner how Chiyo did it to Gaara...Quote:
Maybe Sasuke wanted to save Naruto and Juugo, just because they are his best friends? Just saying!
But, more seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if the Curse form makes an appearance again.
Hopefully, the form will be a bit different.
I was never a fan of this hand-like wings he had in his cursed form.
It seems that Hashirama has an entirely different Sage Mode style, one that doesn't have traits of any animal. In that sense, it probably means that there are a few different ways you can use Senjutsu. After all, Orochimaru used Senjutsu through Cursed Seals.
That's an interesting theory, although I think Juugo would have to have some medical skills. But when we discuss this, I can't help to think about Orochimaru. He'll also definitely have his fingers in this situation.

I honestly don't want it to make another appearance, because Itachi got rid of it so gracefully. Besides, it was ugly as hell, yeah.
Basically, sacrificing himself to give Sasuke the ultimate Curse Seal
How crazy would it be if Sakura actually when to the Shikkotsu forest and learn how to become a Slug Sage!?
This would make her one of the few people able to harm Obito!
It's very unlikely though...
Kishi hates Sakura, so he wouldn't make her shine like that...
Kishimoto conveyed through Minato by having him say that Sasuke and Naruto are the stars of the show lol.I don't think Sakura would be fightning Obito using Sage mode.It'll most probably be Naruto and Sasuke who'd be defeating Obito.Sasuke can go fight Madara though.And yes,Sasuke would be able to deal damage to Obito through Juugo i guess.
If Sasuke gets to use natural energy, that'd be a total ripoff. Him and Naruto shouldn't have similar abilities to THAT degree. Naruto covers the nature energy while Sasuke and Jugo utalize Naruto's chakara and combine there attacks in the process.
But if Sasuke does get nature powers naruto should get visuals.
Yeah, I do agree that it would suck if Sasuke gets to use Sage Mode so easily, while Naruto had to work really hard to become a Sage...
A feat, that even the great Jiraiya could do perfectly like him.
So, I'm 100% behind the idea that Naruto is the only one that can beat Obito...
To be honest, I would like Sasuke to go fight Madara instead...
