Orochimaru's face after feeling Hashirama's chakra
Hiruzen's hype getting destroyed
Sasuke and Minato standing there being pretty
I mean with the tremendous chakra poll that tobi/madara and naruto and kurama are letting out, anyone that has ninja skills could senses all that chakra while minato being a sensor type isn't crazy or imposible, actually that makes more senses since his space time jutsu is amazing and minato vanished just 0.0001 before he get hit either awepon or a human.
I'm throwing Minato a bone here. Take it.
I don't remember Dosu sensing anyone though....
But the control happens through chakra transmittance. Tobi was using his own chakra to control the Tensei and the bijuu.
Not sure where that's been stated. Oh, for Edo Tensei? Yeah, you do need a live body for Edo Tensei.

Now assuming that is accurate take note of the part where it states you need a living body. And I remember in the Haruzen vs. Oro fight that the 3rd mentioned he had to use living sacrifices. "You would sacrifice your own underlings!?" Something like that.
Now the only thing I can think of is that Tobi also used the Pain technique (which utilizes dead bodies) and he somehow got them to work with ET. Possibly after reanimating the bodies with the technique then using them for ET to put their souls back and make them compatible once again with the bijuu. That is the only explanation I can think of here, whether it is explained ever is up to Kishi. Otherwise as it stands what we have confirmed for how the ET works makes it a plot hole.

I'm fairly sure this has already been mentioned but I don't want to fish for it. Did anyone else notice that Sasuke's eyes in the last chapter were not his mixed eyes but his own MS? And on that note, someone has mentioned that if that were the case that it should be Itachi's MS, not his. Which I disagree based on what Tobirama said about it being a special type of chakra that the brain produces, which says to me, why does it matter at all that he has itachi's eyes unless they have been "marinated" in Itachi's MS chakra and thus are now... "special"?
I'm not so sure...
Tobirama claims that the Sharingan is obtained when their eyes mirror the despair in the Uchiha's heart. My guess is that because they take the eyes of their siblings their despair is increased tenfold and, since it's their siblings' eyes that cause that despair, it's mirrored in their own eyes as testament. But as they go on and their hearts change, potentially the brother's eyes wouldn't appear unless the user is still vailed in hatred.
Or... Itachi's eyes were faulty because of his illness and Sasuke's got a busted pair, lmao.
Basically, the evolution of the sharingan is driven by emotional pain. The three tomoe develop first, one after another. After experiencing profound loss, such as the death of a close friend, sibling, or rival, the sharingan evolves into a mangekyou sharingan, unlocking greater abilities.
However, the mangekyou sharingan has a flaw, which is that using its techniques causes the eyes to rapidly deteriorate, and the user will eventually go blind.
The purpose of killing ones brother and stealing their sharingan is simply to prevent that deterioration, creating an "eternal" mangekyou sharingan.
One might guess that the reason they cease deterioration after being implanted in another Uchiha has to do with the unique chakra their brain feeds into the optic nerves to produce changes in the eye. It's unlikely to ever be fully explained, though.

I think he did used the pain technique, which hasn't been said to require dead bodies, to control the Edo Tensei jinchuuriki and supply them with the power of bijuu. I'm not sure if anything else was required - maybe Tobi could have made any Edo Tensei a jinchuuriki but used the last ones before the bijuu were put into Gedo Mazo because of how compatible in power they were.
But yeah, it is kind of weird. The rods should have been pushed away or something, or Tobi's chakra should have been dispelled or negated.
