^ Did he know he went through a transitional state? He didn't even know how he over-came Haku's technique. It is obvious he was never in control.
Makes no sense since Naruto stopped attacking Haku by his own volition after seeing his face. Naruto probably didn't know how he was able to get the power to beat Haku's technique, but if Naruto was never in control, then he'd have kept hitting Haku, he wouldn't have stopped.
Sharingan became a joke to me when it became something spammable. It was fine when there was a drawback (going blind). Hell, give it all the abilities you want to, but there has to be a drawback. Even for Naruto using the Kyuubi, there were drawbacks. Sudden regeneration that could end up causing worse damage down the line. Loss of control and hurting friends. Accidentally letting loose the Kyuubi when it wasn't all 'paws up, rub mah belleh'. Any ability that is given that has no drawback makes for crap storytelling IMO. Hell, even basic abilities have drawbacks in the form of possible chakra deprevation resulting in severe illness or even death.
This story used to be about making the best out of what you have. Not learning that what you already had was better than anybody else in the entire world. That's kind of the opposite of the whole 'fighting fate' thing.

The whole fighting fate and suddenly learning you're destined to be better then everyone else thing really only applies to Naruto.
I don't know, wasn't Izanagi introduced before... Anyway, I should clarify. I meant that nothing "concerning fate or them being superior to everyone else" was introduced due to their connection with the Rikudou Sennin. That was already an established fact/opinion. The Senju and Uzumaki clans were really the ones elevated by that whole introduction.
^ But not until the whole Rikudou Sennin came up we had any reason to believe Kakashi was mistaken
Of course, I'm not discounting the fact that the Hyuuga clan clearly had superior taijutsu then the Uchiha clan. I believe their taijutsu strength was mentioned somewhere.
I mean, if you see Byakugan activated, there's a small ring near the pupil. When Sharingan is activated, whether regular or Mangekyo or even Eternal Mangekyo, there's a ring further away from the pupil, which could be two ripples from the Rinnegan. So far, it's not farfetched to assume Uchiha did descend from Hyuuga or that Hyuuga is part of Rikudou Sennin's lineage. Other than Hyuuga not getting any focus at all....
