plain and simple...
sasuke has assimulated all prerequisites for snake sage...through jugo(ryuchi bloodline"kekkai genkai")and karin(uzumaki bloodline"chakra reserve")...
here is jugo's contribution:
here is what he had(wink)bottom left:
could this be sasuke's new power up...instead of the played out rinnegan?
he did hear and see the results of kabuto's experiments on himself...especially the fact that jugo's clan is associated with sage mode.
put together with the fact that everyone and his brother hold naruto in such high reguards...plus he just beat nagato with the help of a perfect sage mode.
sasuke's a smart kid...i imagine he would see this as a way to save his body/eyes from over-usage(if anything).also,i've always been a believer that karin's contributions(bite no jutsu)were/will be significate.
then,kabuto only confirms this when he says he used her dna also...i'm sure that's for chakra and stamina...
you guys think this will come up...that would be a cool battle...
toadsage mode/kyuubi mode naruto...vs...ems/rinnegan sasuke in dragonsage mode
here he is thinking about the influences within himself(physically and mentally):
Don't think nor I hope so, because if Kishi decides to mesh one of the main character's signature powers in the other main character, he will do so with Naruto as well, and thus there would be a high chance for Naruto to develop a Doujutsu.
And need I tell you how disastreous would be if Naruto, say, obtains the Rin'negan? Let's just rename him Jesus for that matter.
Other than that Sasuke severed his ties with the snakes when he left Hebi behind, it would make him a hypocrite to just go asking Orochimaru powers again
The main theme of the battle is "Body" vs "Eyes", as their inheritance is exactly that:
Naruto is blessed with the body of the Sage, Sasuke with the eyes.
While the idea holds merit ( a Dragon form Sasuke would look awesome, Kabuto looked pretty badass ) its just too out of the themes of the manga in my opinion.
And I really don't see Sage Mode enabling Sasuke and Taka to rule the world other than that, who would train him?
Oro could not, the snakes wouldn't ( unless they would conveniently forgot how Sasuke sacrificed Manda ), and you can't autolearn Sage Mode as its incredibly dangerous and complicated.
Nah, Snake Sage Mode is done I fear. Kishi went out of his way to show a lot of the Snake related Sage arts in Kabuto. I highly doubt he'd recycle it in another character, even Orochimaru himself seems unlikely to showcase Sage powers.
hence,sasuke is not immortal like madara...so how will he of course"spam"jutsus to fight against a RK/kyuubi/sagemode naruto?
so suigetsu may have very well thought this was power that oro could not even achieve...hence suigetsu presuming he was going to do it...and sasuke probably could.
Sasuke'd look dumb with dragon horns poking out of his head, lol. I'm hoping he gets no Sage Mode. I wouldn't mind Curse Seal again, as the wings would actually have matched his evolution into a hawk from being a snake. Though I don't see the need for hawks if he'd have the CS wings again. Even though I'd be okay with it, it's not something I wanna see.
I would prefer that Sasuke not to learn any sage-based jutsu.
Then again, if the person who knows everything refers to the Snake Sage, it is possible.
A training arc for Sasuke would be weird though.
I like this idea more than the Rinnegan one.
Because I think Sasuke would appear more unique, rather than being a copy of Itachi or Madara.
And just imagine the Sharingan combined with Sage-mode. That would be something we haven't seen before.
Making Sasuke obtain the Rinnegan or Senju DNA or whatever just seems...boring.
It will be probably the combo of the two of them, with the whole theme of friendship and whatever.
Unless Kishi makes Sasuke a villain and all, but we already have a Rikudou-wannabe pretty believable to be the final villain, Madara, which will be way more powerful than any character in this manga will ever be:
As for stamina problems, rest assured that, just like everyone else, Sasuke will not suffer from low chakra levels
Even Kabuto's main weapon wasn't Sage Mode but Edo Tensei
Yea man, Sasuke is all over the place with snakes and eagles and what not. Not sure where its all headed.
I certainly hope both dont get Rinnegan, its bad enough we have two pairs of this "rare mutation that appears once in a great while". But it looks like Naruto will be the jyuubi host for now....and the Sharingan has major bad rep among the bijuus
And the scroll had some "data" apparently...data that can be used to rule the world...omg everyones facebook settings
