Plot-Hole?
With Obito finally being revealed, I was just looking over some old issues and there is a slight plot-hole I'm curious about (not related to Tobi's identity - just something odd I noticed). When Tobi first makes an alliance with Kabuto, a set of coffins are shown. One of the corpses is Nagato.

http://images.wikia.com/naruto/images/f/f6/The_Sixth_Coffin.png

He is on the far left. The body is actually Nagato's, not one of the Paths of Pain. What I don't understand is that immediately after this, Tobi confronts Konan, attempting to get her to reveal where Nagato's corpse is. Once again, he is looking for the actual corpse, not one of the Paths of Pain. So what gives here? Is it just a plot-hole or what?

Did you forget that Edo Tensei doesn't require the body of the victim, just some of their DNA? So the body Kabuto summoned at the time in question wasn't in fact Nagato but the body of the person who Kabuto bound his soul too.

Hope that clears things up for you.

i think choppachoppa has a good point. You DO need the body of the victim to resurrect him...if not then everyone would be fighting themselves on the battlefield. The reason why kabuto couldn't cast a zombie version of jiraiya was because his body is too deep down in the ocean. although i still believe he's still lives.

Yeah in order to use Edo Tensei you need to sacrifice another person to act as the vessel for the soul, so it's not Nagato's body.

No you do not. You just need the DNA. Yes he couldn't get to Jiraiya because his body was too deep, but he doesn't need the body, just DNA.

Kabuto said,to perform an ET jutsu,he need a blueprint of a person that will be used as an ET...the blueprint that Kabuto mean is the DNA...a person that he wish to summon as ET must be already dead and the soul of the dead person was not been sealed by any sealing jutsu yet...that's why,Kabuto didn't use any one from the previous Hokage..all of the previous Hokage,start from Hashirama up to Minato,all of their soul have been sealed by using The Dead Demon God Sealing Jutsu..so,Kabuto can't summon them for sure...you better read back a chapter where Kabuto explain how the ET work...

um, if it's just simply dna that you need then kabuto could easily get anyone's dna and create an infinite amount of dopplegangers into the battlefield. He created none as a matter of fact because he needs the corpses of the ninjas in order to resurrect them. Dna can be found in the blood when ninjas bleed...so that means kabuto can just collect their blood and make blueprints.

Kabuto said,to perform an ET jutsu,he need enough DNA to be used...the point is,to summon a person through the ET jutsu,enough DNA is required...that person must already dead and his soul not been sealed by any sealing jutsu yet...and it require a living human as a vessel for the summon soul...to gain control over the summon soul,the talisman that Kabuto create will be put into the ET person head...off course,he need a corpse of the dead person to get their DNA...

(read back a chapter where Kabuto explain about ET jutsu to Tobi...it's as simple as you put your finger into your mouth)...

The problem with the Edo Tensei argument is that the corpses shown in the coffins aren't products of the Edo Tensei... they are just plain old corpses in Kabuto's possession, not vessels animated by souls.
