but here's my counter to those two examples (by the way just doing this for a laugh) ; @ vishnu - see if you can incorporate them into the following chapter if possible
madarra said he obtained the sharingan before his death; that could still have been with his fight with hashirama, just before he died so he never fully got a chance to use or master it before he was killed.
Madarra knew about Nagato.
What if Izuna had a say in Nagato being named, lets say he was the original father and an uzumaki woman, once he fathered nagato he dissapeared and she married again giving nagato his parents that died in the flashback.
lets also assume that Nagato was their fathers name so they had already decided before madarra's death what they would name the child with the rinnegan.
Damn i'm having so much fun doing this, its like trying to solve a puzzle...think outside the box!! lol
