As Obito lies powerless, he notes Rin was his only light and hope in life and that the world began to change after her demise. Minato notes that Obito will die after having a tailed beast extracted but YinKurama assures him that he will survive due to having the Demonic Statue inside him. Elsewhere, Madara is subjugated by Hashirama after Naruto's earlier attack failed to deal a damage on him. Unbeknownst to those around him, Madara secretly puts his plan into motion. Obito attempts to amend his mistakes by using the Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique to revive those he killed, noting he had finally understand why Nagato betrayed him. However, Black Zetsuemerges from the ground, and takes control of Obito's body to force him to revive Madara. Sai then makes his effort to seal the immbolised Madara, albeit a failed attempt. Madara is then fully resurrected, but this comes with a price as his eyes begin to crumble; the former having forfeited his eyes during his life. Giving Madara no time to relent, Sasuke engulfs him in the flames of Amaterasu, but to no avail. Removing his armour, a fully revived Madara directs his attention to Hashirama and begins to absorb the latter's senjutsu. Though Sasuke resorts to kenjutsu instead, he is easily overwhelmed by the elder Uchiha despite having no eyesight. Elsewhere, Kakashi and Minato question just what had happened and Black Zetsu notes that Madara has been brought back to the living world. As the two Uchiha continue battling, Madara calls for Sasuke to join forces with him but the latter refuses. Overpowering his opponents, Madara eyes his target to the tailed beasts, determined to hunt them down.
