If Madara was the one who actually awakened the rinnegan, what forced him to give it away to Nagato?
Initially, I assumed it was because Madara was weak with age. But then the rinnegan gives one the ability to suck in others life-force to revive one's body. Madara could have regained his youthfulness with that ability.
I think Madara never truly awakened rinnegan in his lifetime. what do you think.
well considering that by time he awakened it he
was trapped in a cave attached to the gedo mazou
and if he left he wud die i doubt he had any
bodies to just suck the life force from lying
around in all likely hood he had a white zetsu
plant the eyes in nagato
I'm just guessing here, but maybe Madara knew
of the Rinnegan's power over life and death
and thus gave it's power over to Nagato, whom
he may or may not have known was an Uzumaki.
It's been stated before that the Uzumaki have
distant relations with the Senju, and due to that,
with Hashirama. That lineage was most likely
necessary for the Rinnegan to develop.
He gave Nagato his Rinnegan and gave Obito
instructions to have Nagato use the path's
powers to bring him back to life right before
reviving the 10 tails. The ONLY reason he gave
them to nagato is because being a Uzimaki (however
its spelled) gives him the chakara to use it
without it killing him (Like giving a none Uchiha
the Sharingan and they have it one all the time
and look through it.
madara didn't think/plan to be resurrected
without his soul which is why he expected
nagato's revival jutsu. and rockleoo's
right,madara knew about the power's because
he's able to read the tablets to an extent no
oneknows besides the So6P so far,but didnt have
enough time to work 'em out so he planned
ahead to use nagato through obito.
@rockleeoo, hotrich64: Madara couldn't have
been that old when he awakened the rinnegan.
Madara died during the 3rd shinobi world war.
Nagato had the rinnegan even in the 2nd shinobi
if Madara was the one who
gave nagato the rinnegan, then madara awakened the
rinnegan long before his death in the cave. So I
believe something else other than old age force
Madara to give the rinnegan to Nagato.
I think he gave it to him to bring him back to
life later, Because he knew he was going to die
soon. If you think about it, when he came back,
the first thing he thought was that nagato brought
him back. He probably thought everything was going
according to his plan, but as we know it happened
Obito's statements could've been true
after all when he said that he was greatly wounded
during their battle with Hashirama. That
could've prevented Madara from using some
powerful jutsus. Although we all know that Obito
is just pretending to be Madara, his imitation is
ridiculously pretty well to the point that he
already thinks that he is Madara.
