Who do you think is stronger in terms of ability. The Sage or his mother?
I personally it's the Sage since he was born with the fruits/ God's power while his mother had to eat the fruit and take it, and he also stopped the original entity that produced the fruit.
She could also be the trumph card that Madara spoke of, or it could be the sage himself.
What are some opinions on this?
She ate the pure and original power of the juubii.
Agreed. I think the sage mother is still alive. By having the power of the original source of all chakra, she became a freaking immortal. she's kaguya=hime right? then maybe she's just sleeping on a bamboo tree waiting for the juubi to be revived.
She ate the fruit, the sot6p sealed the jyuubi inside himself...
Hard to determine who is more powerful...
I guess if it was mentioned if she actually went up against the jyuubi or the tree. If she did, then I'd say the sage is more powerful as he actually beat, sealed and split the power of the tree.
Since its Kishi's story, the character with testicles must obviously be more powerful for some reason. Regardless if it makes sense or not.
If Kaguya was stronger then her son, then why was it the son who beat the Juubi and sealed it? Unless the sage didn't get born as a kid of at least somewhat self-sustaining age, simple logic would dictate the Juubi must have been terrorizing the world for years (more likely decades) with Kaguya being incapable of doing anything about it.
Didn't madara said that the juubi decided to get back his power after rikudou was born? If that were the case, then the appearance of juubi happened when rikudou is already a matured prince.
Ofcourse, rikudou wouldn't let his Queen mother to fight a monster.
I bet the scene where Rikudou saves his mom will be the same as when Naruto saved Tsunade. With the speech and all.
The Mom might have ate the fruit but the Sage was born with that power where as his mother had to eat the fruit to obtain it. So it'd make sense that the sage had the abilities of his mother and maybe more.
That and also the fact that he's been the *strongest* character in the manga so far. I don't want him to be 2nd now that his mother was also revealed.
ANDDD Maybe his mother didn't fight it because she couldn't. I mean if she wanted to stop the Jubi and had the ability, she could have.?
BUTT What kind of extremely strong mother wouldn't want to protect her child? AHH i'm thinking she was still weaker. I do not need proof!!!
Seeing how we dont have a proper timeline that issue shouldnt really be brought up as much in my opinion.
He was a shinobi and she was not, and he created ninjutsu. In terms of ability that should tell us all we need to know. She was a princess and he was a Warrior/Monk/Sage.
Just because the mother had the chakra, doesn't mean she could actually use. More then likely, the son was more powerful because he had the time to learn and train with it.
