Ok, something that happened last week got me thinking about this general subject...
And it occurred to me that I have seen tons of threads about how Naruto should end but I don't recall seeing any about how fans think it shouldn't. So here is my question to all of you.
What is the worst possible ending for the Naruto manga that you can think of?
I think the worst ending that I could imagine would be Naruto and Sasuke fusing together, possibly with a silly DBZ style fusion dance, into a new "Sage of the Six Paths" type being. And ending the series with the world being guided to prosperity by "Nasuke" or "Saruto"; or whatever Kishi decided to name this ultimate narrative abomination.
So what can you guys and gals come up with? Can your imaginations trump this level of crappiness?
After his Oro-Cells go out of control, Kabuto turns into an abominably mutated blob of flesh with unlimited regeneration, which sprouts tentacles and grows by absorbing other shinobi's into his body.
Basically the most stereotypical final boss present in almost every japanese manga, anime or video game... yes... I think that would be more then adequate to completely ruin the ending for me.
I think you guys came up with the two most horrible outcomes right off the bat. It could only be worse if they both happened. Fusion Naruto/Sasuke vs chimera Kabuto.
I'm holding out hope against the fusion dance, but I think composite Kabuto might actually happen. Hashimadara flung the doors open wide for that one. Prepare for Edo Rikudou Oro Senjuchiha.
- Time Travel (In the hands of a bad writer it's like a nuke)
- Alternate Realities (Think Bizarro Superman)
- Clones (Not bunshin's but full genetic clones)
- Neo-religiosity (Where an author introduces a god and makes everything somehow his plan)
- Amnesia (I don't even need to explain this one.......)
Sakura being Hokage, since she is the apprentice of Tsunade.
I would devote myself to burn wherever Kishi resides to the ground
naruto marrying sakura or hinata(somehow i don't like her )
Sasuke being forgiven..
Sasuke marrying.... Naruto....
This allows Tobi to alter the reality of the whole world, thus turning him into the winner of the 4th Ninja-War and the undisputed ruler of the world. Everyone except Naruto seems to be suffering from amnesia, unaware of what has happened.
After some almost filler-like chapters, Naruto confronts Tobi once again and after yet another hard battle he finally manages to kill him... but the world stays as it is. At this point Tobi's true identity is finally revealed to the readers: He's an advanced Mokuton Clone of Uchiha Madara, and whenever he gets killed, the Hashirama tree in his Lab recreates him anew, thus rendering him effectively immortal.
Unaware of this, an exhausted Naruto is confronted by Tobi 2.0 just a few moments later and has to fight a losing battle... but in the last moment he's saved by Jiraiya, who's for some reason alive in this reality, and together they manage to escape.
Jiraiya reveals to Naruto that Sasuke is his only chance to restore the world into its original state, because Sasuke's EMS has the unique power to execute some control over the flow of time. If Naruto infuses his Senju Chakra into Sasuke, they can recreate the power of the Rikudou Sennin, which in turn would enhance Sasuke's ability to the point where he can send Naruto back in time, so that he can stop Tobi before he executes his reality-altering jutsu.
Naruto seeks out Sasuke, who's also aware of everything that has happened and as a result has fallen even more into Emo-Mode then before. Naruto reveals Jiraiyas plan to Sasuke... but Sasuke just attacks Naruto, stating that sending him back in time would be wothless, because he's unable to deafeat him, and thus nothing would change.
We finally have our epic Naruto vs. Sasuke battle and finally Sasuke gets defeated without being killed. Sasuke finally acknowledges Naruto's power and Sasuke is cured of his hatred and agree's to help Naruto. After some epic blablabla, chakra transfering and power synchronizing they both obtain the Rinnegan and the Sages Body. Sasuke sends Naruto back in time, but Tobi has somehow found out about this and wants to follow Naruto.
In a place somewhere between time and reality Naruto is attacked by Tobi, who tries to stop him. Sasuke enters the time rift aswell and confronts Tobi. He tells Naruto that he has to go forward and that he will take care of Tobi, so that he can't follow him.
Naruto escapes and Sasuke stays behind to fight Tobi. They have some smalltalk and Tobi reveals that once Naruto leaves the time rift, history is going to change and thus the path to the past will close... and if he succeeds his mission the future will change as well, thus also closing the path to the future, which in turn means they will be traped inside the time rift forever.
Sasuke only states that he's aware of that and that this is something he has to do in order redeem himself... because self sacrifice from the shadows is a shinobi's duty. (Ohhhh such heroism! such tragedy! the tears are going to flow!!) ... so they start fighting.
Meanwhile Naruto arrives in the past, fights Sasuke, stops Tobi and thus accomplishes his mission. He bumps fists with Sasuke, thus he gets to know everything that happened in the alternate reality, which in turn cures the hatred in the Sasuke from the past as well. Everybody is watching this and they think "Oh well... if even Sasuke can do it, then its time for us to let go of the hatred as well!" thus Naruto finally achieved world peace.
Suddenly a voice is heard all over the world... its the Sage of the Six Paths and he is indeed a god... so it was not just a legend. He reveals that all of this was part of his plan to unify his two sons, achieve everlasting world peace and also to create a new leader for humanity, so that nothing like this will happen ever again. It was for that reason he created the Bijuu and left the stone tablet in the Uchihas basement.
Everybody is totally happy, Naruto gets Hinata and Sasuke gets Sakura... and because all hatred is gone, Karin marries Suigetsu, Juugo stops being a lunatic and Akimichi's aren't discriminated anymore for being fat.

That is a work of art.
I especially like how scenario doesn't get bad all at once. It just starts mildly bad and then steadily worsens until it's almost as bad as the end of Tenjou Tenge; along with some bad, but completely, believable plot holes. The "fist bump" was the cherry on top, too.
I am thinking of one more worst ending
Naruto wins the battle against Tobi. But he does not want to kill Tobi and wants to see who Tobi is. By then Sasuke has defeated Kabuto, and Itachi was taken down in that fight.
Sasuke enters the fight. After fight with Kabuto he has obtained Rinnegan and could use it at full power. He saves Tobi and fights Naruto. Naruto almost wins but stops making the killing blow being good. Sasuke uses this opportunity defeats Naruto and with Rinnegan pulls out Kyuubi. He has a deal with Tobi. They take Madara down and force him to synch with Gedo Mazo.
Sasuke uses the power to bring all Uchiha back to life who would have otherwise be alive along with Itachi with his new power and the jutsu he invented after fight with Naruto.
Tobi uses Tsukyomi so that everyone forgets the past and they all think that their current life is actually what is true.
Nobody remembers Naruto or his legend. Tobi marries Sakura and Sasuke marries another Uchiha(Karin, she is revealed to be an Uchiha) but has affair with Ino and Sakura. Tobi is the new God of the world and Sasuke the new Emperor.
Imagine this scene as a silhoutte with just the voice.
A child plays outside in the forest with his pet , his parents pick him and get him to house. The child asks the parents why they are not staying out of the forest. His father says because " The world is at Peace and we do not want to disturb it".
They come to light and the father says "Dattebayo". Naruto his wife Hinata and their child with pet fox are shown. Naruto smiles and winks. Manga ends....
Even though i wanted the worst ending i had added few things which are some of the things which i would not call it as worst in my perspective
1. Sakura marrying Tobi will be hard for both
2. Sasuke marrying Karin and having affair would create problems for him too.
3. Best of all Naruto marrying Hinata, which is my favorite pairing
@LnDRash: Fricking epic! That's so horrible, it's funny and entertaining. Like a Dolamite movie......or a Kardashian.
