I think its more like a requirement to be "the sage of the sixth paths"...remember the rinnengan, more than the few jutsus we know associated with it, has the ability to control life and death a job VERY fitting for a future hokage or the "one". Also naruto at his current level is still neutralized by anyone with EMS(sasuke/madara/tobi/obito) until we know for sure that the fox is invulnerable to genjutsu attacks it makes sense to me to stand by this. Also we only got a sneak peek of the rinnengan so it might be the biggest weapon in the manga, it would be a shame if naruto didnt take it.
Wow! How broken do you guys want Naruto to be?! First, he's the only one to dominate an S-Rank justu (Rasenshuriken), then, he's the first one to dominate Sage Mode, and just recently, he totally owned (in the true definition of the word ) the Kyuubi. And don't even get me started on what the most powerful ninja of all time, Itachi, gave Naruto with that crow. Now, you guys want him to get the Rin'negan? Damn! Uber-hax! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!
My Theory about Sasuke is that he has the other half of the 9b in him! So far i have 3 reasons for that:
1. 9b telling Sasuke not to kill Naruto or he will live to regret it.
2. When Sasuke was attacking the Samurai and his chakra changed as if something dark was controlling him(It looked like 9b).
3. Madara isn't just using Sasuke for his fighting abilities but to keep him close for he has the 9b's other part
As CLEARLY stated here^^ Naruto has the Yang portion of the chakra sealed into him and Minato SEALED the Yin using the Shiki Fuujin. That means that sasuke does NOT have the "other part" of the nine tails' chakra. You guys think into stuff TOO much. If sasuke had the Yin part it'd be pure BULLSHIT. He's already hax. And don't you think there would've been a VERY clear sign that Sasuke had the Yin portion. Theres been so many emotional events in his life that it should have shown already.

How did that work exactly. was yin the half put inside deaths belly or was it just sealed somewhere?? and if naruto has the yang part inside of him dose that mean that the 9 tailes is half complete inside naruto??? i just don't know how it all works.
Correct, however I think its not exactly that Naruto is a succesor of the SOTSP(Sage Of The Six Paths). I will explain :
So now how come Naruto isnt the succesor of the SOTSP ? It all fits well thats right but we all know how did it turn out when the younger son was declared to be the succesor. It fueled more wars than before between the two brothers which later grew into making wars all over the nations. This is not a way to bring peace.
A true succesor are BOTH Naruto and Sasuke together. If they would be one person then it would be perfect but they are not. They will have to both contribute and cooperate to stop the endless wars. Notice how things started going off when Sasuke succumbed into darkness and left Konoha ? If Sasuke destroys the bond between him and Naruto for good, by killing him ofc ourse, then that will mark the start of another war period.
They will obviously gonna fight and thats when Naruto has to get through to Sasuke for them to unite and recreate theyre brotherly bond ! Together they will stop Akatsuki and the crisis that Madara presents with ease, they just have to realize that.
This is gonna be a foolish wish, but I would like to see Naruto and Sasuke, somehow by some super duper forbiden jutsu, to be united in one body just like in Dragon Ball Z with Goku and Vegeta ! That would look just too awesome !! Now that would be the true succesor of the SOTSP. I have no doubt theyre transformation would have some similarities with the original SOTSP.
