I'm actually not looking forward to Tobi's flashback, which will come 100% IMO...that could be the highlight of this war or the lowest part(which would be a great feat, considering we had the KinXGin bros in the war)
Its not his height or hairstyle which debunk the obito theory but the timeline:
- Kakashi Gaiden happened 17 years ago
- The Kyuubi incident happened 16 years ago
- Tobi claimed to inspire Yahiko to create Akatsuki which was formed during the 3rd ninja Ninja War.
That means only 1 year or less transpired between Obito's death and the Kyuubi attack.
Does it really make sense that Obito could master his sharingan & MS, develop intellectually, become so cold and hardened enough to threaten killing an infant and go toe to toe with Minato all in the timespan of under 1 year?
Sasuke who was genius trained for 6 months under Kakashi and 2 1/2 years under Orochimaru marking 3 years of training and he couldn't even beat Itachi. Does it make sense that Obito who isn't even a genius could become so skilled & hardened in a short amount of time?
Its "are you Obito?". a question rather than a statement.
If he is obito then there will be a plot hole. When around naruto's birth when the QB incident happened, Kakashi was small. so was obito if he had been alive. so how can Obito be tobi? So if being crushed by a boulder also makes you 10 years older then only it would fit.
to a certain degree, it may make sense that it's obito. how did he get out of that rock, you say? it's possible that he has activated the kamui, but not to the full extent that he was still damaged. remember tobi's fight with the yondaime? when he was attacked, his right arm "melted" and he just detached himself. it's possible that he's using zetsu to make a full body, thus he's able to use the rinnegan.
The only way Obito fits into this is if Madara or Izuna some how used his dead body as some kind of host kind of how Orochimaru takes over people to extend his life.
My question is, if there's no dialogue aside from Kakashi asking "are you Obito?" then why is it taking more than 30 seconds to scanlate?

Seriously though if Tobi is Obito im dropping Naruto. He is trolling us like Fairy Tail atm.
But it would make sense if for example he was trained by somebody like Madara, as I'm sure we are unaware of when he actual died, although we are under the presumption it was against the first Hokage right? But I don't see how it's a shock he could become so hard and cold after that time, it took Sasuke less then a year after all.
Remember back when he was trying to find Juugo, he wouldn't kill a single prisoner in the Nothern Hideout and now he wants to slaughter a village. It all depends on the reasoning that Kishi gives us to make it believable or not.
Also, you said Toby "claimed" I recall he said that around the time he was still claiming to be Madara, if the true Madara was the one who really inspired Yahiko. Then that isn't relevant, but I guess we have yet to know the facts and the false of what the Masked Man said around the time he was claiming to be Madara, for example was he the Mizukage or was the real Madara?

I'm not saying he necessarily IS Obito, but I am saying it's not that ridiculous that this guy is just taking on the role of Tobi and picking up where the last one left off. If the hypothetical first Tobi was Madara Uchiha, it makes all the more sense, because we know this Tobi loves pretending to be Madara.
I am putting my bet on Izuna. Obito seriously?!? If it really is Obito I will stop reading Naruto..
kishi need some one who get defeated by Child of Prophecy / Savior's talk/love no jutsu and become Naruto worshiper .... who is better than Tobi !?
Sasuke already showed that Naruto's Talk/Love no jutusu has no effect on him and Madara is a real uchiha who stand against Hashirama's talk/love no jutusu , Oro is a true badman and Kabuto is not worthy enough ... so Only Tobi is left ...
