I was in a shock when I saw this. I had been pushing for the Rikudou Sennin, or even Madara's brother. Madara's "real body" was the last on my mind, but I don't think it's his "real body," per se. Maybe "original body."
I still don't doubt the identity of Tobi being Madara. He knows too much, has the power of the Senju (and is therefore able to use Izanagi), and has the proper ambition. The shape of the eye, notably, the pronounced wrinkle above and below, which is unique to Madara, is also present on both bodies. Albeit, Tobi has a more wrinkled face, which supports the idea he is very old.
As for Tobi having the power of the Senju...I've thought for a long time that Madara was using limbs made by Zetsu, who is derived from Wood Element (and therefore Senju). This fits when you consider he can break off his arm and throw it at someone, then get a new one. He also didn't seem to be in pain when Torune's bugs were in his arm.
When Madara was resurrected, the first thing he said was "So, it finally happened...it appears that little brat Nagato managed to grow." I recall, upon hearing of Nagato's sacrifice, that Tobi said "I can't believe Nagato used his Rinne Tensei like that. It was supposed to be for me...what a betrayal." Madara was clearly expecting to be resurrected by Nagato's technique, which is a true resurrection, rather than Edo Tensei, which he seemed disturbed about.
With all this considered, I can't see how Tobi is not Madara. The only logical explanation is that he could also use Muu's splitting technique, but I'm not going to claim that he did. Logic has no power over the god of a universe, who can create whatever means to an end he pleases.
It does seem likely, though. Even though the original resurrected Muu's soul was sealed, the split half is completely free from it, and its power is lower. This seems to be the case for Tobi, as well.
I thought this Obito crap was laid to rest last
year. It's not even worth arguing
I wonder if the current body
of Tobi and the one seen in flashbacks with longer
hair and a different mask were actually different
bodies. I have no way to support that, and I
don't find it too probable, but it's
something to think about.
well first muu's soul wasnt sealed just his
body movements so thats why he is still able to
and tobi cant be madara
because the reanimation tech puts the person u are
summings soul in the body of another and uses dirt
and what not to give them the shape of the
summoned since u are summing a soul tobi can be
but i do like your theory on
nagato. and i thought it was madara the hole time
and hoped it was sennin.
i think tobi
it tobis real name and he added madara in some way
something like kabuto to orochimaru because for
not being madara tobi knows alot of info. but not
only does he switch arms like underwear i believe
. eyes the same thats why he is using sasuke. i
thought originally his eyes stayed activated
because of the complete mongekygun now i think he
is like , kakashi and is not uchia, he dosent
have to be uchia to have uchia dna he could have
stole that just like some senju dna
trying not get too into how things are happening,
but more just speculation on what could be
happening. By having Kabuto resurrect Madara,
Kishi proved he can turn the most logical
speculation and completely obliterate it.
That's what I meant by "logic has no
power over the god of a universe, who can create
whatever means to an end he pleases."
However, I'm fatally attracted to
I'll say it again: if
Itachi, the immeasurable genius of the Uchiha, who
embodied the spirit of a shinobi far beyond anyone
is capable, believes for certain that Tobi is
Madara, I will believe so, as well.
Powder119 as you said logic has no power.
meaning logically Itachi knowing who is behind the
mask makes sense bc of his genius but seeing as
logic has no meaning Itachi may not know as much
as it was let on. when Itachi implanted the
amateratsu in Sasuke it was to activate on sight
of Tobi's sharingan and Tobi asked how much
Itachi really knew..... meaning mayb Itachi
didn't know everything.
