Now we just need to learn where he got his barrier jutsu techs from and he will be a 100% authentic copy-pasta ninja.
What's sad about it is that it's not even like that's ever what he was supposed to be. Every one of those sorts of things was meant to be his and his alone and then everything got retconned into him just adapting existing shit. All for massive bullshit plot pulls. Tobirama looks like shit compared to Hashirama, let's give him a few dozen other abilities out of fucking nowhere so that he's relevant! Naruto can't just be the son of the Fourth Hokage, oh no, he has to be descended from a legendary, prestigious clan!
