Itachi's Edo Tensei (Immortality?)
Thanks to Kotoamatsukami Itachi is now free of Kabuto's Jutsu but I'm calling Itachi's bluff, "I will stop the edo tensei" he says with no doubt because he knows without the initial caster of the Jutsu (that would be Kabuto) he can live forever.

Just an idea but the effects of the edo tensei may not have worn off just the control of it, like if Itachi got sawed in half he'd just reconstruct making him immortal cause he has control of his own body.

<> What is Itachi's true intent in stopping this jutsu himself?
<> If Kabuto releases the jutsu will Itachi return to the spirit world?
<> Can Itachi Die?
<> Does Madara fully know how to use this jutsu or did kabuto keep some
> secrets about it?

Going by narutopedia it says itachi died when he was 21 and kabuto is currently 23. It also says Itachi graduated at age 7 and kabuto and age 10, meaning they where pretty close to graduating together. That aside, I don't know what everyone here thinks of narutopedia...


I personally believe Itachi has to have been at least in his mid 20s, otherwise he was drawn way too mature looking in the flashbacks.
I could see someone's appearance not changing all that much from late teens to mid 20s but not from early teens to early 20s.

(With the lines he really looks like he's at least 30).

As for what narutopedia said, most places go off of what is in the manga, and as I previously stated, there isn't enough information to get an actual age. All you can come up with is an accordion of ages. Whoever was making that page just wanted to come up with a real number so they just decided that "this took this long" without ever having any confirmation on it.

Itachi is very loyal to konoha as shown till date. Even after his death he planned by implanting Kotoamatsukami in Naruto to stop Sasuke in order to protect Konoha and sasuke also.

Itachi is one of the most intelligent ninja we can say he would be in top 5 list in the intelligence aspect. He said something means he really mean it. He said every jutsu has a weak point and he found some weak point in that Edo Tensei which we are not aware of.

Itachi cannot be released by Kabuto. It should be his will or someone else should seal him.

Kabuto would never reveal completely to Madara. We know he is cunning.

What do you mean that we are not aware of?
Kabuto straight up told Madara that the sharingan could easily be used to dispel the jutsu.


Itachi didn't gain control over his own edo tensai, he only gained control over himself (which edo tensai never ever ever affected, it was only the kunai knife that affected that, which is not part of edo tensai) so unless someone seals him, the only person that can release him is Kabuto.
Not that he would because I believe he would be dispelling it for everyone all at once, and not just Itachi.

Thats an interesting thing to say and probably the only explination for why kabuto hasn't disspell Itachi's edo tensai but then again his controll increased and his attention can be focus on specific people ahhh more contradictions. Knowing Itachi their battle would be epic can't wait to see edo tensai's weakness

Wait just a fryball minute didn't Itachi say in 'EP82 Sharingan vs Sharingan' that only someone with the sharingan and kekegenkai can defeat him so why in the world would madara be any different and why would he leave naruto to do the job? He could have search out madara pretend to still be under kabuto's controll, look him dead in the eye then BAM an infine look of Tsukiyumis

Itachi was talking to Sasuke when he said that so he was really saying whatever it would take to get Sasuke to become stronger.

When looked at as a statement solely to Sasuke (and not as a general statement) it's probably true, since Sasuke didn't truly defeat Itachi.

If you're talking about Naruto.. well jinchurikis are the only ones who really stand a chance at breaking tsukuyomi (Sasuke's breaking of it didn't count since Itachi was pulling his punches that fight).

On a side note:
When Nagato absorbed the chakra from Naruto's attack he regained his original hair color.

To me this says two things, feel free to disagree since it's all just theory anyway. (expect a rebuttal if you do though)

Firstly it says that Nagato's apearance was based on chakra level, rather than for a more physical reason.

Secondly it says that edo tensai doesn't repair your soul, it only restores it.


Now I have always kind of maintained that edo tensai ressurects people to their ideal version of themselves. Others have stated that edo tensai resurrects you to the state you were in at your death, citing Nagato's white hair as proof.

Well Itachi when he died was very sick and coughed up blood for no reason (at times anyway, there are references that I don't feel like looking up), yet I don't see any evidence of his debilitating sickness in his edo tensai state.

The facts above lead me to believe that edo tensai does resurrect you to a "perfect" (put in quotes, because perfect doesn't exist) state, but with the chakra level that you had when you died. In other words (with the secondary kunai jutsu included) it restores your body completely, but it can't restore your soul(chakra level) to more than it was when it went to the other realm.

This makes a lot of sense to me since the body and soul really are two separate things before edo tensai is used. The soul is unchanged, but the body is not. Makes sense that it could improve one and not the other.

Besides, not restoring the body of a person you are resurrecting would make the whole jutsu worthless more or less.

I think this also means that if say Obito was brought back, he would have both of his eyes and a full body, even though half of his body was crushed, and one of his eyes was removed before he died.

@Almightywood: This doesn't explain why Nagato still had injuries to his legs when he was resurrected. If Itachi seems to be completely healed from his illness which appeared to be physical, then so should Nagato. There appear to be some inconsistencies with this jutsu.

@ edawg
I don't believe Nagato had leg injuries when revived, it was more like he was still weak because of lack of chakra.

When Naruto and Neji fought in the Chuunin exams Neji was surprised because Naruto shouldn't have even been able to move due to lack of chakra.

There definitely is a little overlap between what it can and can't restore, but I think there's a line there.

Posted by Almightywood 3 years ago

Agreed

Posted by xaioque 3 years ago

@Almightywood: I don't agree, he had to lean on Itachi from the moment he got resurrected. Yes, when his chackra was restored he was able to stand better but, his legs weren't completely healed. Refer to page 4 of http://www.fandom.com/manga/naruto/view/357/the-pr erequisite-to-become-hokage/
Kabuto himself said he lacked mobility and thought his shared field of vision with his summons would make up for that directly referring to his legs. Additionally, what would be the significance of having him walk around barefooted? Wouldn't his prime self be when he was able to wear shoes? Or are all of the resurrections wearing their burial garb, or the clothes they wore at the time of their death? These both don't make sense because I believe they were wearing other attire and buried in different clothes when they died (in the case of Itachi and Nagato respectively). I think Kishimoto wanted the fact that he had no shoes to emphasize the fact that he still had problems with is feet.

Also if the jutsu repaired all physical damage the third Raikage would probably not have that scar on his chest and would have probably been younger ( around the age when he fought the 8 tails,unless he got more powerful as he got older).

These all lead me to believe there are inconsistencies with this jutsu.
