altough this just a tought i think some of this has be true, i just don't see anyone able of defeating the jubi without some special power.
So true. I mean if the juubi is the source of the Rinnegan then why doesnt any of the current jinchurrici that channel the parts of that power happen to awaken the rinnegan or something close???
Not only that, but the SG (which evolved from the eldest sons RG) can subdue the bijuu as if its linked to that power as well. If RS got his Rinnegan by becoming the juubis host then it would be Impossible for anyone without the Juubi to gain the RG as well.
The RG and Juubi are linked for sure, but not one in the same because RS was a priest and no matter how hard the guy preyed without the RG he wouldnt of stood a chance against the Juubi.
Also, why would RS only get the ripples from the Juubi and not the Tomoe too? Its more likly the Juubi already the tomoe, not the ripple of the RG.
