edit: his form after kurama takes over
maybe i am confused but how are these two marks the same?
they are similar but IMO not the same at all....
I would say when Hashi does meet Naruto..he will hopefully show Naruto how to efficiently use his sage mode...
I actually told my friend this yesterday that it is possible the Sage of 6 paths was actually a true genuine sage before he sealed the Juubi. Then he boosted the potential in the Animal Kingdom and their chosen representatives after defeating it. Teaching and showing them the way of a Sage. Possibly they even taught the Sage how to use NE originally. Hashi using Sage mode only indicates the difference in power esp from a descendant of the Sage. I don't see Hashi being taught this by some huge large talking tree. I have a feeling he had this power at birth. Or he was trained by his own forefathers. Myth you could be right about the mark/seal though ....I always said Naruto is taking on the form as the new Sage of 6 paths. My only thing is Naruto is not using Sage mode when that mark is active or showing..He is using a bijuu mode. So what does Hashi's sage mode have to do with Naruto's bijuu mode. How are these two modes related? The Sage is the easiest answer but there has to be more to it..
