The title says it all folks. In not only Shounen manga, but in most stories about hero's, when they've neared their end it always seems like the hero loses his power and he's just about down and out for the count. This is why I believe Naruto is going to get his greatest power up in the next few upcoming chapters. But what kind of power up is the real question to solve.
I believe the Sage of Six Paths will show up, some way or some how. Because Naruto is suppose to be the chosen one which was claimed by the Toad Sage, and Naruto's Sage lineage was hinted at in this panel shown below as well as many others.
Also you should realize by now that this character: The Sage of the Six Paths has been talked about literally the entire manga. Kishimoto will have to give him justice somehow and I think that's in the next few chapters or so when naruto is just about reached his deathbed. Sure he's an Uzumaki and probably survive extraction but that doesn't mean he'll be able to fight after the extraction. Kushina was just about to pass out after her extraction..and she was bleeding...when you're bleeding and you pass out you can die...just saying...
- Let me know what you guys think in the comments section below.
I don't want Naruto to get another powerup, that's bad for him. Kyuubi lending him its chakra for free was as bad as it is, Naruto doesn't need another powerup that will make him complacent. He didn't seem to strategize much when he was using the Kyuubi's chakra, but when he wasn't using the chakra (whether out of choice or unable to), he came up with great strategies. I'd rather he use Sage Mode to keep fighting.
I would like a Shinju sennin mode. It should be ridiculous like Super Saiyan 3 in DBZ. On a serious note, a more powerful sennin mode would be cool. Maybe something like Hashirama's sennin mode?
To see Naruto ditch being a Jinchurikki in favor if a mor peer flu sage mode... I do like that. Sage mod as M3J said was when he used his brain more because he couldn't just blast out raw power, he had to think and strategize which I like a lot
Madara absorbed Hashirama power when he was dying.
Perhaps the same can happen here also (Naruto absorbing Sasuke power)
The losing of Kyubi jinchuriki could also be a preparation stage for something bigger; Naruto becoming juubi jinchuriki
When Madara merge the tail beast into juubi, Naruto might troll him by pulling juubi into himself
I was actually just hoping for Naruto to just be a further developed Sage Mode. Not necessarily more pure power.
It suits him, actually. Sage mode + nifty ninja tricks are fine, but those tricks + QB = even better.
...oh, but hey, I think he's about to die anyway. Let's see how he fares without QB.
Naruto will be without the kyuubi for about three chapters tops. That's the only reason Minato is still around.
Free powerups don't suit Naruto, if you ask me. Hard work and persevering does, which Naruto has done since the start of the manga up until the war.
Naruto is a powerhouse even without the Kyuubi. Having a Bijuu inside him gets him to a godly level of shinobi ability. That much should be obvious.
I don't know about that, naruto falls down the list quite a lot with kyuubi. In fact I would say all the present Kages save the mist kage would give naruto all he could handle. Especially Oonoki.gaara, and A.
