These are the starting five for the best theories so far these past couple months so they better bring their A game in projecting theories with this question. It’s so broad it could really be taken in any direction…no pressure or anything but people acutaully email me asking about your theories so I guees you have fans now. I’m looking for the new comers to throwdown their best stuff to take a spot in the top five. Skyhigh has been absent recently so he dropped from the top five but he may also be one of these people listed above…or he’s Madara… You’ll hear back from me shortly…until then…
Click on the eyes below to take this weeks survey…
(Update for the survey: I’m clearing all 300+ submissions so far, I must have worded the question in the survey all wrong. We all know hawk is fighting the 8 tails and Pain is attacking Konoha but who is the king pin to the whole manga? Is it Pain as the Ying/Yang to Naruto as the chosen one? Is it Sasuke and his bond with Naruto? Is it Madara and what ever his ulitimate goal is and his identity? Or is it a surprise return by Orochimaru or Itachi that will ulitmately become the biggest focus of the manga? Think large scale people not just the next 10-20 issues! Who will kill who and who will be the final obstacle? If you’ve taken the survey already feel free to take it again. I’ve wiped all the previous ones out prior to this update. So stats and “best of” will start showing once we start getting the newer submissions in.)
Final results for “Akatsuki. The Survey.” are posted below.Thanks to everyone who participated. It was a new record for submissions 812! I’ll discuss the results and some of the surprises on Tuesday. Until then I’ll check in from time to time to see if anyone is calling me dumb as hell in the comments section over the weekend 🙂 Ja mata.
Who is the key to the rest of the manga story…who will it all come down to?
41% of you said that Madara is the Key to the rest of the manga.
20% of you said that Pain is the Key to the rest of the manga.
25.6% of you said that Sasuke is the Key to the rest of the manga.
What minor Akatsuki member will become a large part of the story (Top 3 answers listed)?
Best of the optional “why” questions, get out your reading glasses, they are long but these are the best, critique them in the comments if you see something you take a different stance on:
Nearly the whole plot of Naruto was caused by Madara and Oro, but Madara was the one to give the conditions that led to the whole conflict now.
In a formmer chapter he said that everything went according to his plan, so he has to play a major role.
I mean he had very, very, VERY much time to plan everything properly.
If you regard how he was able to defend against attacks – he even saved himnself from Amaterasu, which can burn fire, you´ll see that it´d be unrealistic by Kishimoto to let him enter in a serious fight at the current level of Naruto and the others.
After Naruto has finished his training on Myoubukuzan and discovered Itachi´s powers within him, for example control over the kyuubi(no real Sharingan – Naruto with a sharingan would piss me off) there´ll be a fight, with Naruto (and maybe Sasuke, who maybe sealed the hachibi in himself with the help or informations taken from Oro) on the one side, and Madara (maybe with the other beasts and the Kyuubi, stolen in a former fight and now taken back by Naruto and Sasuke)on the other side.
Madara´s defense technique, is one of three things:
1. only an illusion
2. only a high-level Kage Bunshin
3. a space-time technique (most likely)
He can only be opposed by Sharingan, that means Sasuke, who´s hopefully gonna switch sides.
I don´t think that Madara took Itachi´s eyes, because he had given his power to Naruto and Sasuke, so it´d be useless. He wants Sasuke´s eyes!
His aim, which is absolute, worldwide might and revenge on Konoha, can only be reached by getting the ichi-kyuubi (maybe there´s a yuubi too) and being the only one to control them (by being the only one with Sharingan).So the had to whipe out the Uchiha clan and bind the rest of them to himself (using lies, threats or whatever) and erasing them at the right moment.
As second, I´d choose Oro in Kabuto, who could come on scene after the battle that finishes Akatsuki, in other words, when Konoha´s in its weakest state. He still has his secret bases and many underlings all over the country.
I don´t think Pein will be important over a long (and I mean long) period, because his technique is a perfect match to Kage Bunshin (which could be boosted by Itachi crows anyway), and in the ground of this heart he´s with the good ones (goal of peace all over the world), but war led him into the wrong direction.
So he´ll be beaten by Naruto or convinced by him and Konan or both.
When you read the first one, you´ll see Sasuke in an important role.
Making decisions isnt´t really my strength 😉
I think Itachi will return only in Naruto and Sasuke, that means he´ll be related to as having given his life and his strength for the sake of Konoha.
One last, thing, even if it doesn´t really fit to the survey:
Tsunade dies saving Naruto, because she doesn´t want to let him get killed like her husband and her brother (both got this chain from her like Naruto) :´(,I think Kisame, because there´ll definetely be a fight between him and Gai. Furthermore there could be a link to Sai (comes from the village, where Sai was trained, the loose-feelings-and-kill-your-comrade-thing)
Furthermore, during the Gaara rescue mission, he was said to have the largest amount chakra in akatsuki, so he should be pretty strong – and the strongest always play a role in the Manga.
Furthermore he could whipe out Gai :->, or at least hurt him in a 3rd battle (when Gai remenbers his name, because its the real Kisame now).
Madara submitted by The107thHokage
(optional) Why? : Pein is not the main bad guy for a simple reason, he takes orders from Madara, never showing signs to question it.
About Sasuke, to make any sense out of the powers that Itachi gave to Naruto, and considering that he IS the main hero of the story, he will be able to get Sasuke back to his side somehow, as he is destined to become the most powerfull ninja in the story.
Madara, as Kisame said, is also the Mizukage or some other “kage” that I don´t remember right now. That and many other proofs od power shows that he is really badass.
Itachi sure is dead for many reasons: he passed his powers to Sasuke and Naruto, had a terminal desease, Madara said that he was finaly able to atack Konoha because he is gone, he offered Itachi´s eyes to Sasuke, etc, so I don´t see him showing his ass alive.
FInaly, for Orochimaru, I think that he will only show up again by the end of the story or maybe in a third sequel of Naruto stories, for now I dont see any reasons for him to show up.,
I put my faith in Konan and Suigetsu to play a biger role.
Konan because she may be the only on ethat can give back some sense into Pein´s head, as he is not originaly a bad guy. And Suigetsu because when he atacked Kisame on the reunion with the Akatsuki members after Itachi died, Sasuke said that he could´t kill him anyway…”yet”, that kinda intrigued me, he may become a lot stronger soon.
Madara submitted by Cdog
(optional) Why? : So I was looking into the idea of madara a little bit and this is what I came up with. At first I thought that people who said danzou was madara were idiots because the fact that danzo ordered sai to kill sasuke. Now I have a different theory about the matter. The basic fact is what if danzo’s mission for sai was not to kill sasuke but gain the trust of team kakashi. If this was the case then madara being danzo would be right on the money.
Danzo/madara created sai, that is why he has no emotions and the so called inner smile he gave to naruto was a complete fake. He put on a mask that has them fooled. So madaras plan with sai is like a fail safe if pain fails. The fact that pain was not that big in the history of konaha means he is not a big part of the future. Madaras main goal of the future is obtaining the power of the kyuubi and becoming a jinchuuriki. Naruto will lose the power of the kyuubi and as he lay dead sasuke will kill pain and revive naruto with the eyes.
That or madara obtains the other half of the kyuubi. Thats when their fates clash yin yang as they said earlier. This could be the outcome but there is something that throws it off. This obviously is sasuke. Why? Through his whole fight with itachi, itachi kept saying I have figured out a way to beat madara. So why would he let sasuke kill him unless sasuke is his weapon against madara. I mean look at his eyes they don’t like the typical mangeyou. These are theories I obtain by using foreshadows from the past thus my theory is always changing. Feel free to elaborate anyone.
I believe kisame has a big part to play in the future. I was looking at some earlier mangas and they said that he has the most chakra in akatsuki before madara showed up. Also he sounds really old in the anime. They also say that the reason why madara lived so long is because of his chakra levels. So kisame must have some place in the past before being with the swordsman of the hidden mist.
Sasuke submitted by Erich
(optional) Why? : I have to give it to Sasuke on this one. Pain’s future is short lived since he will soon face Naruto. After that Madara will have to get his hands dirty if he wants to destroy Konoha. But that won’t happen because everyone’s favorite lap dog will turn to bite his master. Yes, Sasuke will finally restore the Uchiha name by taking down the one who made it famous. I truly feel he is operating just as his brother did to take konoha’s enemies down from within. Don’t forget he makes them train him to be the best in the process.
No one else is a factor due to their short lived futures. However keep your eyes open for the worst enemy yet to come. Kabuto will take on a new form (not Orochimaru incarnate) but something very terrible and powerful. He will either cause another great ninja war or use all of his knowledge to raise the best ninja from the dead and create an unstopable army!
I [also] chose Suigetsu because of a comment Sasuke made about Suigetsu fighting Kisame, saying “he can’t beat him YET.” I believe Sasuke can see within people to the extent of their fears like in the last chapter, or their power like when he saw the Kyubi in Naruto’s mind. He knows the potential Suigetsu has. I feel one day Suigetsu will reach this potential and have collected all 7 swords from the water country. Possibly a new evil team on the horizon? Possibly the water country playing a larger role?
Madara submitted by Last Scorpion
(optional) Why? : He has had a hand in everything from the start of the manga. from the founding of leaf to the death of the uchiha clan, he has a master plan and i think he is playing mind games with pain. I think his plan might be to bring back the old ways of clan killing clan, a massive war where he would rule.
Zetsu is a odd guy but there is something we dont know about him. he eats dead people and I think he might gain there jutsus, blood line techs ect… he was also the one that watched naruto vs sasuke and we still dont know anything about him, something is up with this guy and I am not sure what it is but I think he will have a big affect on the manga later on.
Madara submitted by Alec
(optional) Why? : Madara simply because he is obviously preparing for something much bigger than destroying Konoha. With Pain, Kisame, and himself, not to mention his new lap dog, he could take out most of Konoha with only a few tailed creatures. However, it seems that after he tries to destroy Konoha, he wants to become the new hokage and try to erase the fact that the senju ever exsisted. His goals then might include killing Saskue and taking his body and his eyes. With this unbelievable sharingan, eight or nine nine tailed beasts (he takes the eight tails back in the process), Pain, the hidden mist and the new Konoha, he will try to conquer the world and restore the Uchiha that way. Then he will try and destroy the only thing that could possibly kill him, pain. Using his new three or four level Sharingan and the tailed beasts, he will kill Pain. That seeems to be his plan anyway.
It will be interesting to see how far it gets, because it could end up that Konoha is destroyed, and all other villages are conquered, that the Sand becomes the last hold out in which the surviving ninja have fled to. Madara promises Naruto something, like becoming a hokage in the new world order, or tries to trick him with the sharingan and its up to Naruto whether he stays in the sand or betrays the sand and everyone in it from the inside. Thus it would create the fact that he could save the world or utterly destroy, beause let’s face it, Naruto can’t even destroy a fly without getting incredibly lucky right now.
Zetsu is just to weird of a character. His abilities are strange, and he never fights, all he does is watch, even as his comrades die. He is just to mysterious of a character not to play anything big later on. With his abilities to sense things far away, to be able to move through solid material, and to eat other ninjas, for whatever reason. When orochimaru runs away from Tsunade and Jiraya, he sinks into the ground, I wonder who stole the technique from who.
