Black Zetsu is a wood clone grown from Hashirama's DNA, along with some of Madara's chakra.
People put their chakra in other people/things all the time in Naruto, haha. Or other people's chakra into themselves... kinda gross when you think about it. Seems like Kishi has a spooge fetish or something...
The fact that Chojirou is even a Mist Swordsman suggests that he is already one of the most powerful shinobi in Kirigakure, demonstrated by how easily he captured Zetsu. Secondly, his assault on the feudal lords made no sense because once the alliance is destroyed they have no power to command. I would expect the ultimate mastermind to have a master mind and not be fooled by some makeshift feudal dummies. Note, he's also a sensor type.
I've made my head hurt. I need to go think about other things now.

His attack on the feudal lords was stupid, but I feel like that was an example of a plot thread that Kishi had in his head and committed to setting up in a previous chapter, but abandoned making it a plot point. *shrug*
no DUDE u are WRONG zetsu is not the biggest bad, hes just a pawn, deal with it
Depending on how you wish to interpret this panel, which in my opinion shows Obito's right arm responding to Madara's chakra. But other than that I haven't seen any other indication that Zetsu was/is manipulating Obito post-Madara.
I also think that the disclosure of natura lenergy can play a role into the theory. Zetsu being 'the land itself' would be like a natural affinity to... nature itself. When Naruto, Kurama or Bee or whoever it was commented on the the jyuubi's 'natural energy', I think that was also pretty critical.
So we'll see. "My" will may not have necessarily been Madara, but rather the essence and will of the jyuubi which was, perhaps, using Madara as it's vessel. Pretty nice theory there. Manifesting itself within an Uchiha who had the cells of a Senju. And now, on the verge of truly being free again.

Impressive theory, to be honest zetsu has long been one of my favourite akatsuki but now I find his origin story to be so lame, created by hashirama cells and infused with madara's "will".
he's like their child... would explain all the gays jokes about those two.
The original zetsu is dead buddy.
i see zetsu showing up after obito has a change of heart and he will rip the real white zetsu from his body killing him in the manner he would have died, zetsu has many things going for him having hashiramas genes,, thousands of sharingans, the rinnegan , the knowledge of both obito and madara, also what kind of benefit does he get from eating the corpses, and he will control the jyuubi
zetsus potential is unlimited
"Original" doesn't mean anything in the face of a character who is a clone. Do you think the white Zetsu Sasuke killed was the very first one Madara made or something? Even if it was, does that make it special somehow?
