Where does it show the chain connecting to the scythe? After the battle against the Hashirama Senju, he Madara can be seen with the fan, and the chain is not connected to anything... it's possible it was cut during the battle, but still. - SimAnt 06:42, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
In Generations, Madara used his Gunbai to create gusts of wind to blow away enemies and as a defensive tool to block attacks. Should we mention this in the article even though it is non-canonical?--Chimoshi (talk) 16:21, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
- Game information is not usually chronicled outside of game articles. But as it is that it's a war far, I don't think it'd be used for any other purpose.--Cerez365™ 16:28, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
War fans historically are used for signalling troops, and blocking and striking at close quarters. This fans ability to create large gusts is unique and I believe we should add this to the trivia section.—This unsigned comment was made by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) .
- I should have probably been more clear... Temari who is the only other named user of a war fan in the series uses it for the same purpose, it's nothing new. Obviously war fans would not have the same real-life use as summoning up gusts of wind.--Cerez365™ 13:06, February 29, 2012 (UTC)
I noticed in the manga colored image of Madara with the fan that the fan is orange, but in the manga colored image of Tobi with the fan it is instead purple. Is this an error, or a case of extreme lighting, or some other color effecting status? Diamonddeath (talk) 09:23, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- When Tobi said the gunbai was Madara's he did not necessarily mean that it was the one he had however many years ago. He could have just as easily meant that this was Madara's weapon of choice, so he gave it to him.--Cerez365™(talk) 09:56, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- For once, I gotta agree with Elveonora on this one. Its obvious they were the same gunbai. Obito calls it Madara's gunbai. "This is yours after all" in no way implies that it was Madara's preferred weapon. If that were the case, he'd have said something along the lines of "Here. You prefer this type of weapon anyways". A simple trivia note to illustrate the inconsistencies would suffice. ~ Ten Tailed Fox 17:28, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Sweet heavens, I thought such thing couldn't ever happen :P It's surely the original fan of Madara, why it's so hard to believe it was painted, Cerez? We can always ask our local Japanese-translating buddies if something for a confirmation--Elveonora (talk) 17:50, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- I just find it difficult to call something like this an inconsistency and chalk it up to Tobi painting over the fan, for what reason? Unless he's that fashion conscious. Any way, if the majority believes this to be so, fa be it from me to stop you guys, I will however, ask that nothing outside of what was said in the article be mentioned there, such as paint.--Cerez365™(talk) 18:06, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Obito haz a good fashion sense, like designing various masks, modifying paths of pain to match his eyes, wearing a wig and stuff. Again, all we need is a correct translation--Elveonora (talk) 18:15, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- I added it to the article. It contains no speculation on how it got to be that color and merely reflects the information we know for sure. It should do until we get clarification, if we get any at all. ~ Ten Tailed Fox 18:22, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
I think it was very clear that the Gunbai Obito used was Madara's, and I think the way TTF wrote the information is adequate. It states what is know, and just that. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:15, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- I figured it would be the same one, but I also think it would be almost disrespectful to paint it a different color. Maybe it was just the lighting or a retcon. Diamonddeath (talk) 06:09, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
Madara can have some gunbais and it's probably another one different to the one he used in the past, like Killer B's supervibrato swords or Obito's masks. Light-Revan (talk) 14:36, September 25, 2012 (UTC)
Even though the page was deleated a while back, i'm bringing back this discussion because it appears that the deletion of this technique was completely wrong. Here are the reasons:
1. Stating that it's Susanoo. First off a key feature for Susanoo, it that we always see it's bones especially it's ribcage when used for defensive purposes. As we see http://raw.senmanga.com/Naruto/601/9 there are no bones whatsoever and the side view shows this being a literal wall. Plus the whole idea of it being a Susanoo chakra flow thing is both silly and redundant plus while the Susanoo grants high defensive properties, it needs to have bones to give a proper defense.
2. Stating this is the Preta Path. The Preta Path only absorbs chakra based attacks, this wall blocked half a dozen of giant metal stakes, in other words it blocked a physical attack.
3. The sequence as a whole. Naruto throws the stakes, Obito replies by returning the weapon to Madara, then we see the dark chakra covering himself and the weapon, Madara the places the gunbai in a deliberate blocking position and in the end of it all we still see the gunbai covered in chakra after the technique dissipated, showing that it was used as a medium. It may well be a chakra flow but it's a deliberate separate technique.
