Not really admiration, more like respect. He was the only one who could stand before Madara. Sasuke himself acknowledge Naruto as a great rival but he still would like nothing more then to run him trough. Thing is Hashirama was a big factor in the clan wars and he was forced into that peace and taking his bro eyes because of this man. Hashirama even got to Hokage seat, if not Madara would have been the one to get it. I am sure he had no great love for him.
Anywhay what Madara repsected/admired about Hashirama was his fighting ability. That does not mean he would not love to murder him. Even from the RS kids this chain of hate existed. Senju vs Uchiha and what not. Something that aparenty Sasuke and Naruto would also have to deal with (if what Tobi said was true).
Itachi was also a victim of the cycle of hate triggered by Konoha's skewed policies. The establishment never wanted to taint their hands, and had to place the blame on someone else. Itachi was their scapegoat to come clean in the whole affair. Sasuke was pushed down this path of hatred by Itachi himself. Sasuke's motivation was vengeance and that didn't waver even after the truth, it was just channeled elsewhere. Itachi - a victim himself - drew his strength from his devotion to Sasuke and protection.
I seriously doubt both feelings made their chakra stronger. It was just the strength of their emotions that made them press on. Same is the case with Madara and Obito. Obito and Madara both faced betrayal from people close to them. Betrayal in essence leads to hatred as well.
Chakra is spiritual energy and the combination of physical and spiritual is stamina.
Come on. We know why Naruto got stronger, lol. Hatred or not, having the Kyuubi pretty much makes will obsolete. Becoming omnipotent for Naruto would've been as simple as not having someone around to seal his chakra when he got pissy. Which goes further to prove my point: just like how Sasuke doesn't gain power from his hatred (his MS just responds to his emotions), Naruto didn't get stronger from his hatred. His Kyuubi chakra just became harder to maintain whenever he got angry.Originally Posted by M3J
Hm. Coulda swore it was stated that stamina is formed into chakra, thus, stamina=chakra. After focusing that is.Originally Posted by Shadan
Kyuubi doesn't necessarily make the will obsolete. When Naruto fought Orochimaru, Naruto let himself succumb to Kyuubi's will to destroy Orochimaru. However, against Sasuke he told Kyuubi to gtfo. Naruto himself said that he let the Kyuubi influence him, otherwise he could have repelled the Kyuubi.
I saw long ago scenes taht made me thought about increase of chakra created by great determination with the case of Sasuke, but not involving Susano'o but ratehr the Chidori:
Sasuke during his fight vs Gaara remembers he can,t normally use Chidori more than twice considering his level and we see the result of 2 uses on the rock during training:
He had to use the Curse Seal to perform another Chidori.
But later in the story, we see him training after he apprently used Chidori twice on a rock:
then, later that same day, he learns that Itachi si back, rush to find him in another city after learning he left after battling Kakashi and uses the Chidori for what would appear to be the 3rd time the very same day:
That out of overwhelming hatred and anger towards Itachi standing before him.
