he made a comment about the chakra being put up until he uses it.so more than likely we will see more sage mode until he gains full control.
How will it take a back seat? If anything, it's still the ultimate trump card because it can take any chakra out there and then further strengthen it with natural energy, creating senjutsu chakra.
Imagine what Senjutsu chakra created from Naruto's new Rikudou Cloak will be like?
We already saw that he was able to combine Kyubbi-mode with Sage-Mode, so I'm pretty sure we will see some combinaison of Rikudou-Mode and Sage-Mode.
Also... as far as we know, Rikudou-Mode only gives him more chakra and that's all...
He can use that chakra to boost its speed, ninjutsu, etc.
But, what we've seen with Sage Mode (extreme strenght, damage resistence, etc) was not seen yet with Rikudo-Mode.
Hell, maybe he still can only do FRS in Sage-Mode, and he can't in Rikudou-Mode for some reason...
Sage-Mode is certainly not over!
Well, I believe we will see a fusion between Senjutsu and Naruto's Jinchuriki form in the future; it was already hinted at during the battle with Nagato that the two chakras could feasibly be mixed. Plus, Senjutsu is necessary for using the complete Rasenshuriken, as it requires natural energy to hold it together when thrown. So unless Kishi intends to have Naruto stop using his most powerful technique, a fusion is likely.
powering up quickly isnt happening at all, we all knew naruto would get damn stronger after getting kyuubi... how about sasuke barely using MS and just upgrading 2 EMS?(granted he used it 4 one or two more fights than naruto used senjustu)
He isn't powering up too fast, most of his power ups always had a training before than it could happen, it took him almost a year before he could use sennin modo in action about 16 chapters before we saw sennin modo in action.
he is not powering up to fast and will not lose sage mode he will mix both modes together
I don't think it will take a back seat. I think it will still be used, especially if it means for the battle with Sasuke. I can even portray scenario where Sasuke manages to suppress the "new form" of Naruto <don't ask me why xd>, he tells Naruto he wins, Naruto already gathered Senjutsu chakra and goes into SM and punches Sasuke telling him: that's not all I got.Originally Posted by shlowbro
And not to mention the thing which was mentioned <>: SM + KM = fusion of those powers.
So, yeah, SM will be used, whether in fusion form or as an alternate power source, which comes from the outside <it can be really a trump card against Sasuke, who can think of Naruto as really super strong by just being a jinchuuriki and haven't got anything "on their own" ^^ I'm not bashing Sasuke, just saying my idea xd>
Considering how long it took for Naruto understand how Kage Bunshin worked, I'm perfectly fine with the recent power-ups he's gotten.
I agree, naruto hasn't even mastered the sage mode that he got another mode, well I hope at least will still use sage mode, and not over use kyubi mode, it feels like naruto will somehow lose kyubi, the fact that kushina survived even after having kyubi extracted for her, could mean naruto would be able to do just as well since he's her kid.
Naruto could also use the 2 mode at the same time and being even stronger, well that would be cheating tho, just seeing how fast he is now in QB mode, with QB/sage mode on that would be too big
Sage mode isn't going anywhere. Rs mode has appeared to perfect sennin mode utterly. Kishi is building up naruto solidly and completely. Nothing rushed abt this. Every single thing naruto has ever learned or acquired is being used to build an ultimate form

I think since Naruto has greater physical and spiritual energies due to taming the kyuubi chakra, he will need to draw in greater amounts of narutal energy to preserve the balance between the three for sage mode. This will lead to an enhanced version of sage mode that he will be able to sustain for longer amounts of time with a devastating increase in power. Naruto is on his way to becoming ultra hax when he puts sage mode with his newly acquired kyuubi chakra. Obviously, Sasuke's EMS will still blow him away. In every Shonen Manga, the protagonist has to enter the battle against his rival weaker than him so that he can attain a mystical power up during battle. So no matter how strong Naruto becomes, he will enter the final battle against Sasuke with a disadvantage so that the 'Will of Fire' can be his ultimate powerup which will defeat Sasuke Chan. Those are my two cents.
