It's interesting how the jinchurikis summoned through this retain their tailed beasts even though they already exist in the world. The same with how Pain and Itachi both had their eyes though they had been removed.
What's to keep someone from say harvesting an endless supply of Nagato's eyes? When they die they seem to go away, but what if they were removed prior to death, would the same thing still occur?
That site didn't really touch on my
questions. Made no mention of whether a part
of their body that had been separated from the
rest would also turn back to dust, I have seen no
evidence of it in the manga yet either. In
other words it's not really a question with a
definite answer, it is more of a topic of
summon itachi, steal his
eyes, use him to summon nagato, destroy
itachi's body (to send the soul back to the
pure world), steal nagato's eyes, use him to
summon itachi, etc.
uzumakimadara said everything with that one line.
The summoned retains all original
jutsu/weapons/bloodline-limits pre-death when
resurrected using this technique. In the case of
Nagato and Itachi they had thier eyes removed
after they died, a living sacrifice is required
for the soul's resurrection as well as the
soul must reside in the "pure world" not
the "physical world" so sacrificing an
edo tensai to summon another may not be possible.
The summoned is bound to the
sacrificed body an if sealed its safe to assume
that all jutsu currently in effect by the summoned
or any separated body parts will dissipate as seen
at the end of the Orochimaru/Sarutobi battle
All this Jutsu is, is a soul switching
technique and alot of people think that Kabuto may
have summoned Madara's real body to form an
alliance but he hasn't died and gave no
thought to it being The Sage of Six Paths
The Rikudou Sennin was my first guess for that
The six jinchuuriki
weren't resurrected with edo tensei. You
will recall that the Pain Rikudou is created from
corpses. That said, they don't possess the
powers of their bijuu. I would assume that they
have the same powers as the original Pain
Edo tensei resurrects
anyone's soul with all their physical
attributes and abilities. That is why Itachi and
Nagato have their normal eyes.
I have my own question. If Madara claimed to give
Nagato the rinnegan, why would he resurrect with
it? It wouldn't be his natural eye. Either
edo tensei resurrects your body as it was when you
died (he DOES have white hair, after all), or
Madara was full of shit. Given that Nagato has
white hair instead of his natural red, I'm
inclined to believe the former.
Edo tensai seems to be self perpetuating. There is evidence that you can use one soul
summoned through edo tensai to summon another
without the original vanishing (this is when the
coffins appear, otherwise the body sacrifice
morphs into the summoned soul), and there was no
evidence of another sacrifice when that occurred
(how many sacrifices did you see orochimaru make
when he was fighting the 3rd?).
So it seems to be one sacrifice = as many
summonings as you want until the jutsu is
As for whether or not what I
started this blog trying to discuss is possible,
it really just depends on what happens to a body
part that has been separated from the summoned
person. There is about 3 possibilities that I can
come up with:
1. The body part
crumbles to dust as soon as it is separated since
it is no longer "alive" after being
separated from the soul host.
body part crumbles to dust once that particular
soul has been released as the jutsu holds it
together until that point.
3. The body
part lasts as long as any other body part would
since when separated from the body there is
nothing special about it, and doesn't turn to
dust when the soul is released from the body since
technically there is no soul attached to it once
it isn't attached to the body.
If this was a game I'd totally be
rooting for option 3. The most logical one to me
is actually #1 though.
That wiki page
didn't really touch on the purpose of this
blog, might have provided some general information
on edo tensai to help people grasp the topic of
this blog, but had no information whatsoever about
the little subsect of edo tensai that this blog is
about (because there is none). Besides which wikis
are nice in a lot of ways, but if I actually
wanted a definitive answer (not that I did), I
would never accept that info from a wiki.
That being said the site did do a great
job of citing references.
4. Body parts cannot be seperated as the soul is
bound to earth as one entity and any detached
limbs, legs, eyes etc. will dissolve and reform on
the host until the jutsu has ended in which case
everything returns back to dust. (except the body
of the one sacrificed)
there are only three people that come to mine that
can throw Madara for a loop #1. The Sage, #2.
Hashirama, #3.Madara's Brother and
that's certainly an iteresting question
something to look forward to finding out and it
makes me wonder. . .
Orochimaru has been sealed but if resurected would
he have been able to do jutsu with the soul from
his hands being sealed by the third
I kind of think that edo tensai must resurrect
people at the combination of their physical and
mental peaks. The point where they had the most
power, and the most speed, plus all of their
I think it basically
recalls an ideal version of them, which makes
sense to me because 'weakness comes from the
flesh' is a very eastern philosophy -
especially in a militaristic setting like this
My guess is instead of thoose black piercings
he's using the sharingan to control them or
something. and i dont think they have their bijuus
left, only their shinobi abilities. and for the
impure resurrection tecnique im guessing its more
of a cloning ability hence why he needed dna to
perform it, combined with a resurrection tecnique
wich summons their souls or maybe their dna has a
memory of its own, haha kind of like assassins
Well madara has 7 out of the 9 bijuu. He
could reserect the daed jinchurikis because they
all died at some point(except Gaara) ,but the
bijuu all survived(cant reserect something thats
alive). Madara knows that the previous jinchurikis
can handle the bijuu ,because they have in the
past. He can just put the bijuu that he has
in to its previous container.
