I once again saw someone saying that Tobi's s/t jutsu is the same as kamui, and it made me decide to post my theory on it. I believe Tobi's s/t jutsu is not a sharingan technique. Here are some supporting facts:
1. every sharingan technique has been named pretty much instantly upon use.
2. it doesn't seem to require Mangekyo to be used, which should make it a common sharingan jutsu. If it was a common sharingan jutsu, lots of people should have known about it/been able to use it, and should have named it upon appearance.
3. every sharingan technique seems to already be known, there are no real unique sharingan jutsus - as evidenced by the fact that all the jutsus are named instantly
4. there are techniques that center on the eyes that are not sharingan-related, gaara's 3rd inner eye technique for one.
There are many more than 6 people who have
activated Mangekyo Sharingan. Itachi stated as
much to Sasuke, saying that it was very common for
brothers to take each other's eyes. Since the
eyes don't lose their light unless you are at
MS level, MS would have to be common, for it to be
common for brothers to steal each other's
It's true that Itachi did
implant amaterasu to go off that one time, but
that didn't determine Sasuke's powers.
If you could switch powers from eye to eye people
would switch their techniques around from eye to
eye to keep them from wearing out.
for Madara saying that Itachi gave Sasuke all his
powers, this is supposition on his part. He even
says that he doesn't know how, and since
Sasuke hasn't revealed any powers of his own
at this point, it can only be supposition. Not
everything Tobi has stated is true. When
Sasuke's powers are revealed, he uses the
opposite eye for each power that Itachi did, and
is able to manipulate amaterasu in a way that
Itachi wasn't. How he could he be better at a
power he just gained than the guy he gained it
from? Simple, he didn't gain it from him.
People using the same jutsu yet it
appearing different is not proof that they are
different techniques. Naruto and Konohamaru look
different when they do their perverted jutsus, but
it is still the same jutsu.
that his eye wasn't usable yet, not that the
technique wasn't. Pretty similar to
Kakashi overusing his sharingan, the main
difference being that Danzo had the 1st's DNA
so it didn't cripple him as well, just the
tobi hasnt lied about to much him being madara and
the kyubi attack thats it its an assumption on
your part. and he did give him the tech. not
everyone can do it because they dont know how. at
the meeting with the kages after danzo was cought
he said (dont worry it isnt a tech i can use
often) anyways but saske has itachi jutsu but uses
them dif and control the dif. sasuke and itachi
both use the right eye for amaterasu
At the Kage conference he does say that, but later
on during the fight with Sasuke he elaborates that
it is the eye itself that is worn out, and not the
technique, as opposed to koto amatsukami which has
a timer on the technique itself.
again Sasuke and Itachi use the opposite eyes to
cast their jutsus. http://www.mangafox.com/manga/naruto/v42/c389/2.
I don't care to just blindly
follow other people's extrapolations, I
prefer to make my own, so thanks but no thanks for
the site link.
It is not an assumption
that Tobi is just making an assumption there, it
is a fact.
How could he possibly have
known that Sasuke now had Itachi's powers
when Sasuke has never had his MS appear at this
point? It was only Itachi's eye that
appeared. Itachi loved to set traps, Does Naruto
now have permanent access to Koto Amatsukami? No.
The fact that Tobi stated he
didn't know how it could be done is proof
that it was just an assumption on his part. Or
that it was just another string is his web of
deception that he used to lure Sasuke in.
kind of he says he was waiting on the tech to
charge up kind of and was debating on who to use
actually sasuke uses both eyes
for amaterasu but what ever lol. what doesnt
tobi know he has only lied about one thing or two
who he is and the kyubi attack everything else
seems to be spot on. ur just theorizing witch is
When I'm making a theory I definitely try to
take my time and read through the manga to find
references. I'm not infallible so I do miss
things occasionally. To tell the truth, I kind of
like being proven wrong, it gives me a chance to
evolve my theories further. Doesn't mean I
will just yield right out the gate or anything
yea i read the manga alot lol i usually read each
chapter a few times because i can miss something
then u watch it u learn something else. kishi is a
genius i will say that. there are some other bad
ass manga out there though that can compete with
naruto but naruto is the best
