agreed...that's what i said...zetsu fooled bee and Aa...so what's so hard about just changing your face.if he is part zetsu...but i'm really thinking he is his own person/identity...not some experiment/clone/summon.like zetsu is his own being too...maybe siamese twins...but not some creation(unless madara made him with the rinnegan).look at the face of sarutobi's wife up top and look at tobi's...this is a person and he is older than sarutobi's wife(can't remember her name).look at how many more wrinkles he has than her...so he is definitly older than fugaku maybe older than the third.

While I appreciate your effort to form a coherent theory in English, OP, it made absolutely no sense to me.
I know English isn't everyone's first language, so if possible, can some explain what he was trying to say?
^I cleaned it up for you... hope that makes it a bit more readable. But don't expect too much... even when its readable the whole theory doesn't make a lot of sense.

nah, Tobi is Izuna that somehow came across Obito's body in the Rock ninja's country
To digress, I must point out that this is a world with transformation skills, and most of our arguments are dependant on someone having seen the face of tobi at some point in time
tsunade could look like jiraiya if she wanted to, it's just a simple transformation
All the theories are good and some cannot be dismissed, However it is sad to see no one asking the questions that matter about the character Tobi.
Everyone asks: who the hell is Tobi?
To be honest I bet if he took his mask off only a hand full of people I can think of would recognise him like Kisame and Madara.
But the question that matters is: why is he covering his face? and I can assure you, concealing his Identity is not his primary purpose after all, now that everyone knows he isn’t Madara it’s only natural for him to take off his mask if that was his main goal.
Well now here is my theory:
1) The fact he has Izanagi is unprecedented and we all know that Izanagi is a Jutsu that needs to be activated first and any harm that befalls the user while it is active turns to an illusion
2) We also know that Amaterasu is also a Jutsu that once it hits you and you are not an Edo tensei with the rinnegan(Like Edo Nagato) then “Owari da” (It’s over).
3) Having the above in mind Tobi was hit at point blank with sasuke’s Amaterasu which Itachi planted meaning no time to activate Izanagi, shortly after which Tobi turns up “Totally” unharmed.
4) Tobi clearly stated that If Itachi new everything about him then he would most certainly be dead, which brings me to my conclusion.
Tobi’s main purpose of wearing the mask is to conceal a certain Jutsu of which if his enemies discover, it would be possible for them to kill him and the main way to discover it is by seeing his full face. Kisame knew this fact and as result decided to scarifies his life to keep Tobi’s Jutsu a secret.
With regards to Tobi’s Identity I believe he is only an avatar and that someone is actually pulling his strings in the background similar to nagato’s pain of the six paths, but maybe slightly different, after all we have seen Tobi has used this jutsu and his has lost his Limbs several times, So he either has Orochimaru’s regeneration technique or Nagato’s technique, but then again to me Tobi’s identity does not really matter for the moment.
I don't buy him being Fugaku. The only way he is Fugaku is if he used yet another henge behind the mask when he showed Sasuke his face. Because seeing his father alive and well would be a massive mind-f*&# to a fragile psyche like Sasuke's. Remember - Sasuke desperately wanted approval from his father, not just Itachi. Before the Uchiha massacre, it was his father that Sasuke was trying so hard to impress and be acknowledged by... he wanted him to tell him the same things he told his older brother: "As expected of my son..." etc. Seeing his father alive or knowing that he is alive would be massive to him.
After using tsukiyomi on Zetsu, Sasuke just said "That Tobi went off and started war..." almost dismissively. Sasuke knows he isn't even Madara.
undead1000 - the main question here should be 'are you really from the USA?' Because your english sucks...
