I actually imagine Naruto and Sasuke basically being Gods on the battlefield at near the end of this charade. Naruto will probably have full Kurama with every Bijuu's chakra as well, which will make him something along the lines of pseudo-Juubi-jin and Sasuke will have Cursed Seal level 2 Susanoo with wings flying around and shooting arrows of Amaterasu and shit. Hashirama and Madara won't have shit on them, that's for sure.

Also, after reading the chapter again, I noticed Hashirama also being in Kurama's cloak. I'm guessing now he's up to par with the current Madara.
Seeing the chapter I can't help but wonder about the various stages of susanoo. Susanoo has been shown to have different stages with varying powers and techniques. Is there an order to them at all? Well, obviously there is but it kinda seems like they can be arbitrary to some extent. Originally with sasuke we saw first the rib cage, then a half full skeleton, then muscles and skin and then finally the susanoo would get clothes. However now we are seeing a fully limbed susanoo without clothes.... So developing a full body is not a requirement before getting the clothes? Or is perhaps a susanoo with all the limbs is something only atainable by one with the EMS? For me it is a little weird because you seem to be able to develop a fully clothed susanoo without being able to summon a complete body first. So by now we have seen sasuke's regular susanoo but we have not seen it fully clothed. And now we see the limbs but still not all the clothes even though the clothed susanoo was something he acquired long ago. And now it is perfectly plausible sasuke's susanoo can undergo transformations depending on what level of curse seal he applies on susanoo.

Also, for the next couple of chapters I predict sasuke will have naruto's kyubi transformation wear his susanoo armor. It only makes sense at this point.
Shikaku and shikamaru, a fodder shinobi as you would say, have been saving the alliance ass from being wiped out because of their great mind:
A useless shinobi? You've got to be kidding me.
Even Kurama and A praised Shikaku.
Power not only means great strength but also great mind.
I thought too that hashirama was under naruto cloak, but it was just his cloned, you can see that the real hashirama is fighting madara without a cloak.
No. The reason why shikaku came up with that Idea is because of kakashi. Well, technically, kakashi explained everything to shikaku that the kyubi can passed his chakra to anyone and etc....... so shikaku came up with a plan for naruto/kurama to give the alliance their chakra. Is that awesome ? Hell nah. Kurama should praised kakashi and not shikaku.
And no. Their so called great mind can't even save the alliance with the zetsus. They can't find a way on how to defeat the infiltrator who disguised as their comrades who keeps on killing the other. Oh, shikaku came up with an awesome plan/strategy, naruto's power. Yea, yea, that's awesome strategy no doubt. And what the heck shikamaru did? He just simply drawn a circle and stand inside of it. That's what his brilliant mind strategy.
Agreed. Power not only means great strength but also a great mind. But that's only for a fodder ninja like them. As far as the elite/abnormal/unique ninja are concerned, you need a great strength/power/ability and great mind to defeat them. But the problem is, shikamaru and shikaku are powerless. So technically, they can't defeat orochimaru's caliber, masked man's caliber, nagato's caliber and any elite ninjas like oonoki, raikage, mei, tsunade and gaara. Why? Because this people can't be defeated with just a brilliant mind and shadow bind.
I think you missed the point about Shikaku/Shikamaru being a great tactician and strategist. They analyze data or information calmly and quickly formulate an effective plan. Where did they got those information? of course from the alliance, and kakashi is one of the alliance.
With their great mind they utilize the resources efficiently. What are those resources? of course the alliance and Naruto is one of the alliance.
Oh by the way, Shikamaru prevented anymore casualties on the alliance.
at those instance they conserve energy while waiting for the reinforcement. Shikamaru knows that they can not do anything on that situation and patiently waiting for Naruto to arrive. That reminds again, utilizing the resources efficiently.
In no way does this mean she can't heal Shikamaru who's right next to her... on the contrary, it means she was positive its well in her ability to save everyone who had his chakra drained.
Transfering some chakra is a piece of cake for skilled med-nins and it should be all that needs to be done in order to revitalize Shikamaru. I'm afraid you'll have to endure him a whole while longer.

I think Madara never used his Moktun and Rinnegan against Hashirama .... yes he has Rinnegan but he has been fighing him like 80 years ago .... so Hashirama isn't in par with Madara anymore ... fact is that Madara get dumbed again and forget what he has .... just like all Narutoverse bad guys .......
