I think after the latest chapter we should discuss the separation of the article (to Black Zetsu and White Zetsu) again. Black Zetsu is revealed to be completely different essence than White Zetsu, he is Madara's clone created via Onmyōton while White Zetsu is Hashirama's clone created via Mokuton. They have different personalities and origins, their only common thing is ability to merge into one body.[[User:Faust-RSI|Faust-RSI]] ([[User talk:Faust-RSI|talk]]) 15:40, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

==Dojutsu in Zetsu==
:If Madara never separated them, why should we? --[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 15:47, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

I was doing some re-reading on the past chapters and i noticed that in chapter 665(page 2), Zetsu was detaching himself from Obito and while coming off, still had the Rinnegan with him. This caused me to think that Zetsu was in possession of the Rinnegan and that he currently is in possession of the sharingan, despite still being attached to Obito. The thing that most supports my belief is that Obito is dead, all while BZetsu remains able to use Kamui.'''EDIT:''' In the most recent chapter 676, this would also mean that Obito left sharingan was actually implanted into Zetsu instead, of Obito's dead body.--'''Koto'''<small><sup>[[user talk: Koto Senju|Talk Page]]-[[Special:Contributions/Koto Senju|My Contributions]]</sup></small> 07:28, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

:This is a bit weird. Technically, Zetsu is being "worn" by Obito, who appears to be dead (let's see how long that lasts). Obito isn't conscious, he's been controlled. I'm not sure that Zetsu trying to leave Obito before counts as him having the Rinnegan, as Obito was still in control, even forcing Zetsu to remain attached. With the Sharingan though, things seem murkier. It appears that Zetsu used Obito to Kamui out of the dimension. The closest situation regarding possession and use of kekkei genkai by another I can compare this to is Sasori with the Third Kazekage puppet. Zetsu definitely used Kamui, but he doesn't possess the Rinnegan. In my opinion, BZ's possession is a true body snatching, like say, Orochimaru's.

::I don't follow your logic Omni about how BZ isn't a Kamui user tho. He isn't a Mokuton user then either, because to do that, he has to be "worn" by a WZ or his clones--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 19:25, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:::Right. Zetsu could only use mokuton due to being attached to WZ. But about the Rinnegan, it's nearly impossible to say that he did have the rinnegan as it was connected to his gooey head as he was detaching himself from Obito. As for Kamui, he should be listed as a user of both sharingan and the technique. 1) b/c of mokuton example and 2) I would think because that eye was actually open and in use, while the other wasnt.--'''Koto'''<small><sup>[[user talk: Koto Senju|Talk Page]]-[[Special:Contributions/Koto Senju|My Contributions]]</sup></small> 21:03, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

::::Did you read my comment right? I'm comparing the situation to Sasori and his use of Magnet Release through a medium that has it. I agree that Zetsu used Kamui, but I'm against listing him as a Sharingan user. He was using Obito to cast it, much like Sasori used the Kazekage puppet to use Iron Sand techniques. If BZ and WZ were to have split articles, I'd be against listing BZ as a Mokuton user, since he's only done so while attached to WZ mass.

:::::Oh, excuse me but im leaving out some important detail in my argument. What i really want to emphasize on is the fact that Zetsu had the rinnegan attached to him as he was leaving Obito's body. It's that the eye was coming off with Zetsu as he was leaving. And, in that one picture, the eye was literally detached from Obito. Its this single piece of evidence that I say that he's a bit more of a user of the Rinnegan and the Sharingan than Sasori is the magnet release. But, it's easy to see where one would counter-argue with "Zetsu is still attached to Obito". But we've seen the difference between Zetsu using the Kamui (literally on his own) vs. Zetsu forcing Obito to use Rinne Rebirth.--'''Koto'''<small><sup>[[user talk: Koto Senju|Talk Page]]-[[Special:Contributions/Koto Senju|My Contributions]]</sup></small> 22:09, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
   
@Cerez, the white was there before the black has been created, thus we should do some kind of separation in their article at least, like Kamui has (Kakashi/Obito)--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 15:56, October 17, 2012 (UTC)
+
@Omni, which raises question why isn't Sasori considered a user in the first place. A user is someone who has used something intentionally. BZ's case is not that much different from Orochimaru's soul possession now that Obito is out of the game. In a theoretical situation in which Orochimaru would gain Sasuke's body, he will not have been considered a Sharingan user, 'cause he be using other body according to you. It's as clear as day, Obito is unconscious, BZ used Kamui, means he knows how to do it and has done so.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 22:48, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
   
:Ukon was born before Sakon, yet their articles aren't separated are they? I'm against separating their articles because the two operate as a single being most of the time. The information in the article isn't overbearing or confusing so I don't see the need to separate the information. Also Faust-RSI, all the clones were created using Yin-Yang Release from what I understand: one from the statue the other from the clone, it's just that White Zetsu was created first, there is no difference between the two. I really don't see one good reason to separate the articles, simply because they can split themselves. In that case we should create one for Mū's "clone".--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 16:05, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

: Agreed with Eleve, though I do see where you're coming from, Omni. Even so, Sharingan is the medium through which Kamui is used. If Black Zetsu used Kamui (which he did), then he used a Mangekyō Sharingan too. Black Zetsu is a very odd case (jinchūriki; Mangekyō Sharingan; etc), but he ''is'' a user regardless. ~ '''''[[User:Ten Tailed Fox|Ten Tailed Fox]]''''' [[File:Yamagakure Symbol.svg|14px|link=User talk:Ten Tailed Fox]] 01:11, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

:Huh. I don't quite oppose that sort of change in priciple, but it strikes me as very odd. It also puts some other possible scenarios in a weird situation. For example, if a Yamanaka Mind Body Switches someone. Is Santa a Lightning Release, Lightning Cutter user and MS/Sharingan wielder over having piloted Kakashi through the mist against Zabuza? If Ino takes over a kekkei genkai user and performs a kekkei genkai jutsu, does she get listed as a user. Does her diversion of Obito's Mokuton through the Ten-Tails earlier in the battle means she's a Mokuton user? [[User:Omnibender|Omnibender]] - [[User talk:Omnibender|Talk]] - [[Special:Contributions/Omnibender|Contributions]] 02:26, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
  +
::Well No. That point is null. When Santa used MBS on Kakashi, he had already activated the Raikiri and the point of him switching places with Kakashi was so that he could use his sensory abilities to guide Kakashi through Zabuza's mist, which negated Kakashi's Sharingan. And no again, b/c Ino only manipulated Obito to change the Tentails aim. All-in-all, none of those points have any place here. But i do, however, understand what you meant by your argument. And the point is still left null. It's only b/c Zetsu is almost entirely in a different boat here. He literally has the eye implanted into him. I think you are confusing the fact that Zetsu is attached to Obito, with him being able to use the sharingan despite still being attached to him. He obviously doesnt need to be witnessed by him attempting to leave Obito's body (while taking the Rinnegan with him as 665, page 2 clearly shows) and him being attached to a mass of WZ and using Wood Release (an not connected to a live and sentient part of WZ). --'''Koto'''<small><sup>[[user talk: Koto Senju|Talk Page]]-[[Special:Contributions/Koto Senju|My Contributions]]</sup></small> 05:32, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
   
Since they work as a single entity most of the time, it might be best to keep the sections on their background and role in the story as a single section. The same goes for their appearance, since splitting them would basically mean describing a lot of the same things twice. Their abilities, however, may be a different story. Other than Mayfly, which all of their kind can use, the two haven't really displayed any shared abilities. Their abilities section could be split into two the way most articles are split into sections for nature transformation, kekkei genkai, etc.--[[User:BeyondRed|BeyondRed]] ([[User talk:BeyondRed|talk]]) 18:08, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

I hope necessary changes will be made accordingly asap. For Sasori, are human puppets conscious? If not, then Sasori should be listed as Magnet Release user imo, since the puppets act more or less as extensions of the puppeteer's body--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 10:46, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:My reluctance to add Sasori as a Magnet Release user is because listing him as such sort of implies that ''he'' possesses Magnet Release. It's almost like saying he's in the same situation as Yamato, except his use of Magnet Release is tool-based. We decided not to consider Tenten and KinGin as users of each of the five natures because they were being achieved through the fan. The situation is pretty much the same here. Are we simply going to revert the decision regarding the fan?

It's not like that hasnt been done before. We have. '''Alot.''' Look at ''Guruguru''(and i use his example very loosely) or [[Raiga]] and [[Ameyuri Ringo]] (lightning release). Each of these characters use a ''tool'' or another independent source of which they are accredited the corresponding chakra. By the rule that you are saying that is ''implied'', neither of their pages should reflect the tool's "nature".

:Raiga and Ameyuri both had at least one Lightning Release technique that didn't involve the swords [[Rock Avalanche]] and [[Lightning Release: Depth Charge]]. What about Guruguru? The statue is a technique, not a tool. It's like Obito's use of Wood Release: Cutting Technique through the Ten-Tails. Regarding the Takumi shinobi, I haven't watched that filler in a long time, but wasn't the point of those swords that they minimized the chakra used by their wielders?

::The hypocrisy... that's not addressed to you Omni, I'm speaking generally... but people pick and choose as they see fit. So Naruto IS to be considered a user of Lava and Magnet (and composing natures) according to you guys, yet Sasori isn't a Magnet Release user by the same merit. Great consistency indeed.

:Yeah.

::::No, it's not hard to understand at all. I mean i get what youre saying. It's just that he ''does'' have a Sharingan. It's implanted on his side. Look at the Chapter page i referred to you guys at the top. It clearly shows that the Black Mass that is BZ has the Rinnegan. It could not have gone that far from Obito's face if it didn't have custody of it already. It's the same case as the Left Sharingan now. I'm not saying list him as a Sharingan user '''solely''' due to him using kamui. But because the Sharingan is literally implanted within him.

:::::The Rinnegan I can see your point, even if Obito was strong enough to prevent BZ from leaving, but the Sharingan as far as we know is implanted in Obito, Zetsu is only "driving" Obito.

1. Yes, Madara never separated them, though this is irrelevant, all of the most important, final arc, they were separated.
+
@Omni, "list Zetsu as a Kamui user, he's in control, just don't add sharingan and MS to his infobox, he doesn't have it" great, so we will do and as such so should we remove the natures from Naruto's infobox then, because despite him being in control while having used the 'gans, the natures weren't his ;) just like Obito's eye ain't BZ's--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 11:17, May 20, 2014 (UTC)
2. Ukon and Sakon never acted as separate entities, yet BZ and WZ did. Also, their significance is incomparable with that of Zetsu.
+
:@Elveonora The Tailed Beasts, their chakra is inside him, it's his to use. When Zetsu seals Obito inside himself, then your point will hold. @Koto Senju, yes, Rinnegan I agree. [[User:Omnibender|Omnibender]] - [[User talk:Omnibender|Talk]] - [[Special:Contributions/Omnibender|Contributions]] 17:24, May 20, 2014 (UTC)
3. It was never mentioned WZ was created using Yin-Yang Release, moreover, it is strongly implied it has Yang release only, as seen when Zetsus abnormally react to Naruto's chakra. Moreover, WZ is Hashi's clone, while BZ is basically Madara, I don't know why you ignore that. And this is HUGE difference. I don't see how it is even possible to compare them to Muu's jutsu.[[User:Faust-RSI|Faust-RSI]] ([[User talk:Faust-RSI|talk]]) 05:45, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

::Yea Elveo. The tailed beast are on a whole different spectrum of what we're addressing here. Not very relevant. @Omni, why don't agree on him having Sharingan, but agree to add him as a user of Kamui. Doesnt make sense to have it w/o the Sharingan listed. My whole reasoning for bringing up the Rinnegan is to point out that yes, he was temporarily a user of the Rinne, but also that it's the same for Obito's left eye. Just like the Rinnegan, Obito's left Sharingan is also Zetsu's. This is not just b/c he's occupying Obito's body, but because the eye is literally in the the black goop that ''is'' Black Zetsu. -- '''Koto'''<small><sup>[[user talk: Koto Senju|Talk Page]]-[[Special:Contributions/Koto Senju|My Contributions]]</sup></small> 17:50, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

:In the most recent chapter, Madara told Obito that the beings created through Yin-Yang Release could be used as his pawns, implying that it was used to create the white clones as well. As for completely splitting the article, it could lead to problems on other pages; mentions of Zetsu acting as a single entity on other pages would have to link to one side or the other. Black Zetsu's creation can be explained within a single sentence and he remained merged with White Zetsu for a while after that, so their background section works fine as it is, although the part about Black Zetsu's creation is currently out of order. The abilities section could definitely be separated though, as previously mentioned.--[[User:BeyondRed|BeyondRed]] ([[User talk:BeyondRed|talk]]) 06:57, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

== Grass Headband ==
* How much significance a character holds for you is insignificant to the discussion, and not a valid reason. We're supposed to be neutral.
 
* The Zetsu clones were all created from Yin-Yang Release. They react poorly to Naruto full-on Yang-natured chakra because of their genetic makeup. They're vegetation, the Yang-natured chakra is simply activating them. What is happening to them is no different than Danzō's arm turning into a tree.
 
** I'm not ignoring anything.

:* They have, for one battle, hundreds chapter ago. Zetsus did this recently in the most important chapters of this manga. Sakon's and Ukon's significance is almost zero, BZ and WZ have connections to all the most important events of this manga. So no, it is not my personal opinion in any way, it is what this manga shows us thus your comment is no relevant and makes no sense.
 
*My mistake, they did, though one clearly represents Uchiha and Yin while other Senju and Yang. Though this is not the point. The point is that WZ is Hashirama's clone while BZ is not.
 
*They are not single entity in any way, did you miss the part where WZ was existing for-hell-knows-how-long before BZ was even born? Being able to merge don't make them one. There are more characters that are able to merge, but only Sakon and Ukon share the article, even bijuus have their own pages.[[User:Faust-RSI|Faust-RSI]] ([[User talk:Faust-RSI|talk]]) 19:14, October 22, 2012 (UTC)
 
   
: I'm also for a split in the articles. As far as Zetsu is concerned, Black Zetsu and White Zetsu were created for two completely different purposes using two completely different methods, Black Zetsu has been shown to do things that White Zetsu cannot, they aren't as dependent of each other as we originally thought either. They have different personalities, backgrounds, that kind of thing. Comparing them to Sakon and Ukon is not even applicable. Both White and Black Zetsu have spent a considerable amount of time separate (all the time before Black Zetsu was born, and during most of this Shinobi World War arc). While Sakon and Ukon were shown to separate, we don't know anything about their pasts, or what they're like when they are apart for significant amounts of time. Furthermore, we don't know if they have the exact same abilities, or have different abilities than each other. We do know all these things about the two Zetsu. If, at some point, we learn all of this about Sakon and Ukon, I'd be for splitting them too, but in this case, I think a split is necessary. ~ '''''[[User:Ten Tailed Fox|Ten Tailed Fox]]''''' [[File:Yamagakure Symbol.svg|14px|link=User talk:Ten Tailed Fox]] 20:38, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

If you look at it closely it couldn't have been a mistake and in many different manga images it is clear that he has a headband on his chest. not to mention he was in kusagakure with madara and made their. it is also possible to see the rogue cut through the village symbol on his headband. it should at least be added as trivia. if you want to see the headband then look on page 196 of the third data book. look at zetsu's chest. its right there. you can also see part of it when he comes out of the ground to chat with hidan after his ritual. from all of this i think its not possible for you guys to label it as bull shit anymore.

I find it extremely unnecessary to lump them all together when we have so much unique information on their individual selves. They aren't even collectively referred to as "Zetsu" anymore.

I can see that as a headband but this was before the whole Zetsu is a plant clone of Hashirama thing. Kishi probably didn't think of that till Madara became more prominent in the story. Even so you can't tell what is on the supposed headband, for all we know it's blank.

There is no need to split Zetsu. Up until this current arc, there was only Zetsu, with Black and White personality. Them separating into two physical forms. As mentioned before, that would be like separating [[Sakon and Ukon]] which would result in two articles with the exact same information for the majority of the page.--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 21:52, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
 
: No, Ultimate, there would not. For Sakon and Ukon, that might be the case, but regarding the two Zetsu, there are ample amounts of information amount both to give them completely unique articles. Black and White Zetsu, as a single entity, didn't make too many appearances before this arc. Their plot sections prior to the Five Kage Summit arc is mediocre at best. Its not like they made a ton of appearances as one being. I'm sorry, but, given the unique nature of their creation, the fact that they were created separately, have different personalities, different purposes, and even, in some cases, different abilities, makes it perfectly legitimate. White Zetsu is even dead, at this point. So you're telling me we're gonna keep adding stuff for just Black Zetsu now to this article? Makes no sense. For the last two or three arcs they haven't been merged. At all. There is no legitimate reason to keep them together. ~ '''''[[User:Ten Tailed Fox|Ten Tailed Fox]]''''' [[File:Yamagakure Symbol.svg|14px|link=User talk:Ten Tailed Fox]] 00:23, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

As the sandboxes I created show, they even have different abilities and Black Zetsu is more of a fighter, while White Zetsu, as Obito mentioned, is not a "front line" fighter. They're different in numerous ways. They even have different personalities. As I said before, if Sakon and Ukon had displayed this many differences and this much independence from one another, as Black and White Zetsu have, I'd be asking for them to split too. If its really just the links you're worried about, there are editors that are more than willing to do that. But really, I and others see it as a necessity.

:Yes, I observed these images as well. Still, I don't see a headband. I honestly can't even imagine how people tell themselves they see one there.
  +
:A few facts why I believe this whole discussion is redundant:
  +
*'''1.''' If Kishimoto would have gone through the "trouble" to draw him an own headband, why would he suddenly stop doing so? Never again did we see something there, [[:File:Zetsu dividing.png|right]]?
  +
*'''2.''' Considering Zetsu's whole background story, it would not make any sense for him to come from Kusagakure as he never had anything in common with that village. We don't list Madara as a Kusagakure shinobi either, just because he spend decades of his life there, staring at Hashirama's clone, do we?
  +
*'''3.''' Since you bring up the databook so often...if Kishimoto wanted to make Zetsu a Kusagakure shinobi, he would definitively list him as such in his databooks. With one-hundred percent certainty. But he never did so. I am looking at Zetsu's article in the [[Sha no Sho]] right now. The image you are using as proof is right there, yet his little box on top of the page that tells about the village of origin is '''empty'''.

There is no information on their background, they have the exact same abilities and even similar personalities. Not the case here with these two. Funny, because if you look up, you'll see these explanations two or three times. Secondly, yes there is ''everything'' to requite these pages being split. They have different personalities, different origins, different purposes, different abilities, and besides that, the only argument we seem to be getting from you, just like with the Obito and Tobi split, is "its too much work". Also, looking back over my proposals, I see numerous differences, particularly in the background and abilities sections, as well as towards the arcs in which they become more prominent as separate characters.

So, can we separate White and Black Zetsus' page now, at last? Chapter 678 further proved they have nothing to do with each other, neither regarding creation, nor the way they "function". Black Zetsu is a parasitic symbiont that can exist on any body, control it and use its powers. He did so with original White Zetsu, but also on several other occasions. There weren't really any firm arguments for them staying together for a long time except for some people stubbornness.

: I say it defeats the purpose of the split. "Zetsu", as a term, refers not only to White and Black Zetsu (which the tabber system makes central), but to all artificial humans created by Madara from Hashirama's DNA. It was originally used to describe the merged form of White and Black Zetsu (reflected in my edit), but now applies to them all. It doesn't make any logical sense to me to have three articles with the exact same content, when the purpose of the split was to illustrate how radically different the two of them are in both personality, abilities, and purpose. With the tabber system, all that has been done is splitting the two halves into different articles and then remerging them on one page.

I think it's incredibly redundant and sloppy to have an article for each half and then simultaneously have the original Zetsu page contain the exact same information. What's the point of separate articles if we're just going to turn Zetsu's page into a cluster containing both articles? Besides, the Zetsu article should be about the complete character, especially considering Black/White Zetsu spend the majority of the series together so what we have is both tabs being largely word for word until the very latest arcss. --[[User:M4ND0N|Mandon]] ([[User talk:M4ND0N|talk]]) 20:20, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

As with the newest manga, Dream World 606, Black Zetsu is a portion of Madara's will. In the abilities section it says black zetsu has the ability to record things such as battles and 'show' these recordings to Tobi. In manga 604 White zetsu says he can telepathically communicate with his clones. I'm not sure if this is evidence enough but it's apparent to me at least that black zetsu is watching the battles, gives the memory to White zetsu (because they are able to share a body) and White Zetsu transmits the memory to the part of Tobi's body that was made from Hashirama's cells. {{unsigned|Jiraiya1}}

So we've now been given a number of origin stories for White Zetsu:
  +
* Obito: Grown from the Hashirama-clone-tree using stored tailed beast chakra.
  +
* Sakura: Clones made from Hashirama's DNA using plants as a medium.
  +
* Madara: Grown from the Hashirama-clone-tree using the Mazo's own chakra and Yin-Yang Release.
  +
* Black Zetsu: Victims of the Infinite Tsukuyomi assimilated by the Shinju's life force.
  +
They all fit together, more or less: Infinite Tsukuyomi victims + Shinju/Mazo/tailed beast chakra + connection to the Shinju/Hashirama-tree + Yin-Yang Release (?) = White Zetsu.
  +
We shouldn't claim to know whether Madara/Obito's White Zetsu were created with human victims or not until it's confirmed.

Madara probably developed them or discovered them by experimenting with the statue after getting the Rinnegan in his old age, this is when Hashirama cells got involved in the mix. This is the main WZ we know came to be. Obito later using that White Zetsu as a template used the tailed beast chakra to make more, that were further enhanced by Kabuto.

Too many speculations there from just one BZ's line. His line wasn't referring to the past events, he just described what WILL happen to the victims of IT.

  +
#Madara's, that are made from Hashi's DNA (which grew into Hashi's clone and a small version of God Tree with Lotus flower), using Gedo Mazou as catalyst, i.e. it means Madara's Zetsus=Hashi's DNA+GM chakra
  +
#Obito's, that are similar to Madara's, but are an enhanced version of them, i.e. Obito's Zetsus=Hashi's DNA+Yamato's DNA+GM chakra+7 bijuus' chakra (!).

No, the original White Zetsu was killed before he could do anything interesting. That said, Black Zetsu, which had half of White Zetsu's body did Wood Release just fine, which kinda breaks logic. -__- -[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 14:53, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Them having been enhanced by Madara with Hash cells makes sense, what doesn't tho is that their DNA is almost identical to Hashirama's. Not even Yamato is almost identical. It's just weird ._.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 15:21, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Well, lets try this:

* As I already suspected sometime back, only the [[White Zetsu Army]] are clones of Hashirama. If it hadn't been for Kaguya/Gedo Mazo, they would have looked identically to him.

* White Zetsu was originally a human "zetsu'd" with [[God: Nativity of a World of Trees]] and the reason why Black Zetsu could use Wood Release with half of his body is because White Zetsu also got enhanced with Yamato, mystery solved--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 15:27, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

I currently understand that White Zetsu's Wood Release is due to Madara's first tinkering with them when he thought he had created them from the statue, similar to Yamato. This would result in the main White Zetsu and Black Zetsu having Wood Release, and later White Zetsu were further enhanced by Kabuto through Yamato.

To clarify one thing, the White Zetsu (both the ones killed at the summit and the one that impersonated Neji) were said to have DNA similar to Yamato as well as Hashirama, so it is entirely possible that they, like Yamato, simply had Hashirama's DNA implanted in them, either intentionally by Madara or just as a result of being attached to the Hashirama-tree. The other questions this new origin creates are how the "White Zetsu Army" clones were created and why they regard one particular White Zetsu as the ''original'', despite the new explanation implying they must have come from the Mazo like the rest of the clones. Not to mention the clones seemingly created by the ''original's'' Spore Technique.--[[User:BeyondRed|BeyondRed]] ([[User talk:BeyondRed|talk]]) 16:29, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

:Nothing was implied about White Zetsu Army and Spore clones. Only the ones Madara created (White Zetsu, Guruguru, some other unnamed ones). White Zetsu Army and Spore clones should still be considered literal clones of White Zetsu, that also explains why they call him "original".

Since when has a black mass a definite height? I get that we add the Dojutsu and everything, since he used them. But how does he, as a black mass, share the same height as White Zetsu?

Dojutsu in ZetsuEdit

I was doing some re-reading on the past chapters and i noticed that in chapter 665(page 2), Zetsu was detaching himself from Obito and while coming off, still had the Rinnegan with him. This caused me to think that Zetsu was in possession of the Rinnegan and that he currently is in possession of the sharingan, despite still being attached to Obito. The thing that most supports my belief is that Obito is dead, all while BZetsu remains able to use Kamui.EDIT: In the most recent chapter 676, this would also mean that Obito left sharingan was actually implanted into Zetsu instead, of Obito's dead body.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 07:28, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

This is a bit weird. Technically, Zetsu is being "worn" by Obito, who appears to be dead (let's see how long that lasts). Obito isn't conscious, he's been controlled. I'm not sure that Zetsu trying to leave Obito before counts as him having the Rinnegan, as Obito was still in control, even forcing Zetsu to remain attached. With the Sharingan though, things seem murkier. It appears that Zetsu used Obito to Kamui out of the dimension. The closest situation regarding possession and use of kekkei genkai by another I can compare this to is Sasori with the Third Kazekage puppet. Zetsu definitely used Kamui, but he doesn't possess the Rinnegan. In my opinion, BZ's possession is a true body snatching, like say, Orochimaru's. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:14, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
I don't follow your logic Omni about how BZ isn't a Kamui user tho. He isn't a Mokuton user then either, because to do that, he has to be "worn" by a WZ or his clones--Elveonora (talk) 19:25, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Right. Zetsu could only use mokuton due to being attached to WZ. But about the Rinnegan, it's nearly impossible to say that he did have the rinnegan as it was connected to his gooey head as he was detaching himself from Obito. As for Kamui, he should be listed as a user of both sharingan and the technique. 1) b/c of mokuton example and 2) I would think because that eye was actually open and in use, while the other wasnt.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 21:03, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Did you read my comment right? I'm comparing the situation to Sasori and his use of Magnet Release through a medium that has it. I agree that Zetsu used Kamui, but I'm against listing him as a Sharingan user. He was using Obito to cast it, much like Sasori used the Kazekage puppet to use Iron Sand techniques. If BZ and WZ were to have split articles, I'd be against listing BZ as a Mokuton user, since he's only done so while attached to WZ mass. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:56, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, excuse me but im leaving out some important detail in my argument. What i really want to emphasize on is the fact that Zetsu had the rinnegan attached to him as he was leaving Obito's body. It's that the eye was coming off with Zetsu as he was leaving. And, in that one picture, the eye was literally detached from Obito. Its this single piece of evidence that I say that he's a bit more of a user of the Rinnegan and the Sharingan than Sasori is the magnet release. But, it's easy to see where one would counter-argue with "Zetsu is still attached to Obito". But we've seen the difference between Zetsu using the Kamui (literally on his own) vs. Zetsu forcing Obito to use Rinne Rebirth.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 22:09, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

@Omni, which raises question why isn't Sasori considered a user in the first place. A user is someone who has used something intentionally. BZ's case is not that much different from Orochimaru's soul possession now that Obito is out of the game. In a theoretical situation in which Orochimaru would gain Sasuke's body, he will not have been considered a Sharingan user, 'cause he be using other body according to you. It's as clear as day, Obito is unconscious, BZ used Kamui, means he knows how to do it and has done so.--Elveonora (talk) 22:48, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Agreed with Eleve, though I do see where you're coming from, Omni. Even so, Sharingan is the medium through which Kamui is used. If Black Zetsu used Kamui (which he did), then he used a Mangekyō Sharingan too. Black Zetsu is a very odd case (jinchūriki; Mangekyō Sharingan; etc), but he is a user regardless. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 01:11, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

Elveo, Fox-Boss, I'm glad you two agree.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 01:13, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

Huh. I don't quite oppose that sort of change in priciple, but it strikes me as very odd. It also puts some other possible scenarios in a weird situation. For example, if a Yamanaka Mind Body Switches someone. Is Santa a Lightning Release, Lightning Cutter user and MS/Sharingan wielder over having piloted Kakashi through the mist against Zabuza? If Ino takes over a kekkei genkai user and performs a kekkei genkai jutsu, does she get listed as a user. Does her diversion of Obito's Mokuton through the Ten-Tails earlier in the battle means she's a Mokuton user? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 02:26, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
Well No. That point is null. When Santa used MBS on Kakashi, he had already activated the Raikiri and the point of him switching places with Kakashi was so that he could use his sensory abilities to guide Kakashi through Zabuza's mist, which negated Kakashi's Sharingan. And no again, b/c Ino only manipulated Obito to change the Tentails aim. All-in-all, none of those points have any place here. But i do, however, understand what you meant by your argument. And the point is still left null. It's only b/c Zetsu is almost entirely in a different boat here. He literally has the eye implanted into him. I think you are confusing the fact that Zetsu is attached to Obito, with him being able to use the sharingan despite still being attached to him. He obviously doesnt need to be witnessed by him attempting to leave Obito's body (while taking the Rinnegan with him as 665, page 2 clearly shows) and him being attached to a mass of WZ and using Wood Release (an not connected to a live and sentient part of WZ). --KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 05:32, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

I hope necessary changes will be made accordingly asap. For Sasori, are human puppets conscious? If not, then Sasori should be listed as Magnet Release user imo, since the puppets act more or less as extensions of the puppeteer's body--Elveonora (talk) 10:46, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

My reluctance to add Sasori as a Magnet Release user is because listing him as such sort of implies that he possesses Magnet Release. It's almost like saying he's in the same situation as Yamato, except his use of Magnet Release is tool-based. We decided not to consider Tenten and KinGin as users of each of the five natures because they were being achieved through the fan. The situation is pretty much the same here. Are we simply going to revert the decision regarding the fan? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:27, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

It's not like that hasnt been done before. We have. Alot. Look at Guruguru(and i use his example very loosely) or Raiga and Ameyuri Ringo (lightning release). Each of these characters use a tool or another independent source of which they are accredited the corresponding chakra. By the rule that you are saying that is implied, neither of their pages should reflect the tool's "nature". EDIT: There are other examples in Hoki and Seimei.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 17:19, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

Raiga and Ameyuri both had at least one Lightning Release technique that didn't involve the swords Rock Avalanche and Lightning Release: Depth Charge. What about Guruguru? The statue is a technique, not a tool. It's like Obito's use of Wood Release: Cutting Technique through the Ten-Tails. Regarding the Takumi shinobi, I haven't watched that filler in a long time, but wasn't the point of those swords that they minimized the chakra used by their wielders? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:29, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
The hypocrisy... that's not addressed to you Omni, I'm speaking generally... but people pick and choose as they see fit. So Naruto IS to be considered a user of Lava and Magnet (and composing natures) according to you guys, yet Sasori isn't a Magnet Release user by the same merit. Great consistency indeed. We either remove Naruto's borrowed natures completely or we list borrowed natures and techniques for everyone. Decide now--Elveonora (talk) 17:32, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
You've been told the problem with that reasoning enough times already, mostly by Ten-Tailed Fox, so I'll make no effort repeating him here. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:39, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
Whatever I was told likely didn't make any sense, although I'd like to hear it once more before I accuse anyone of fallacies again.--Elveonora (talk) 17:48, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
Now, lets not get into the Naruto chakra nature incident. Like I said earlier, Black Zetsu's case is different, much like Naruto's, in that he isn't using a tool. He literally is assimilating the abilities of the individual he's occupying.EDIT: After much review, i've reaized that this is much more like Orochimaru's (and his WZ possession) case than any of the others. -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 23:11, May 15, 2014 (UTC)

Kinda knew this topic would be left unresolved like 97% of all the others. =/ Seems valid when I say that this joined the statistic and was successfully bumped. Any objections? -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 21:22, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. I still don't see how Zetsu using it through Obito is any different from Sasori using Magnet Release through a puppet, Tenten and Kinkaku using Wind Release and Fire Release through Bashōsen, and Raiga and Ameyuri using Lightning Release through Kiba swords. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:50, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
So if I put a gun into your hand and make you shoot with my psychic power, you will be the murderer, not me, because it was your hand holding it? Everything Obito does atm is controlled by BZ. BZ using Kamui with Obito's body isn't any different than Kurama doing stuff through Naruto, so no double standards please--Elveonora (talk) 22:22, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
Have you understood what I'm arguing for? By all means, list Zetsu as a Kamui user, he's in control, just don't add Sharingan and MS to his infobox, he doesn't have it. Are the other examples I brought up so hard to comprehend? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:49, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
No, it's not hard to understand at all. I mean i get what youre saying. It's just that he does have a Sharingan. It's implanted on his side. Look at the Chapter page i referred to you guys at the top. It clearly shows that the Black Mass that is BZ has the Rinnegan. It could not have gone that far from Obito's face if it didn't have custody of it already. It's the same case as the Left Sharingan now. I'm not saying list him as a Sharingan user solely due to him using kamui. But because the Sharingan is literally implanted within him. I hope you get what I'm saying now. --KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 23:21, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
The Rinnegan I can see your point, even if Obito was strong enough to prevent BZ from leaving, but the Sharingan as far as we know is implanted in Obito, Zetsu is only "driving" Obito. The fact we can see it over BZ just means we can see it being used, since non-phasing Kamui means getting stuff in and out through the eye. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:31, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
I take it that you agree that he had temporarily had the rinnegan and should and listed? Your comment kind of confused me about the Left Eye Sharingan. I cant tell if you agree about that or not. But I am overall glad youre seeing my point. If you read between the lines, you'll see that the fact that the left eye is open clearly means that it's literally Zetsu's now. -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 23:40, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

@Omni, "list Zetsu as a Kamui user, he's in control, just don't add sharingan and MS to his infobox, he doesn't have it" great, so we will do and as such so should we remove the natures from Naruto's infobox then, because despite him being in control while having used the 'gans, the natures weren't his ;) just like Obito's eye ain't BZ's--Elveonora (talk) 11:17, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

@Elveonora The Tailed Beasts, their chakra is inside him, it's his to use. When Zetsu seals Obito inside himself, then your point will hold. @Koto Senju, yes, Rinnegan I agree. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:24, May 20, 2014 (UTC)
Yea Elveo. The tailed beast are on a whole different spectrum of what we're addressing here. Not very relevant. @Omni, why don't agree on him having Sharingan, but agree to add him as a user of Kamui. Doesnt make sense to have it w/o the Sharingan listed. My whole reasoning for bringing up the Rinnegan is to point out that yes, he was temporarily a user of the Rinne, but also that it's the same for Obito's left eye. Just like the Rinnegan, Obito's left Sharingan is also Zetsu's. This is not just b/c he's occupying Obito's body, but because the eye is literally in the the black goop that is Black Zetsu. -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 17:50, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

Grass Headband Edit

If you look at it closely it couldn't have been a mistake and in many different manga images it is clear that he has a headband on his chest. not to mention he was in kusagakure with madara and made their. it is also possible to see the rogue cut through the village symbol on his headband. it should at least be added as trivia. if you want to see the headband then look on page 196 of the third data book. look at zetsu's chest. its right there. you can also see part of it when he comes out of the ground to chat with hidan after his ritual. from all of this i think its not possible for you guys to label it as bull shit anymore. Munchvtec (talk) 13:43, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

I can't see a headband at all. Norleon (talk) 15:59, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

I can see that as a headband but this was before the whole Zetsu is a plant clone of Hashirama thing. Kishi probably didn't think of that till Madara became more prominent in the story. Even so you can't tell what is on the supposed headband, for all we know it's blank. My sources are the volumes and databook I own. --Narutofox94 (talk) 17:42, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

It should be added in trivia at least. Munchvtec (talk) 15:20, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

Apparently, fans debate if it really was a headband or not, since 2010. I can't see any headband at all, neither in the databook nor when he emerges during Hidan's ritual. If others can see it, they are free to provide the proof, like highlighting the headband via paint or whatnot...Norleon (talk) 10:32, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

In the third data book on his profile page. look at his full body image. now look for a small opening in the venus fly trap-like things and you will see it. i believe in an older talk page discussion on zetsus page a user even had a pic of it in close up if you want to check that out. Munchvtec (talk) 15:31, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Its in archive two in the discussion called hugh! a user provides a high quality link image to it. Munchvtec (talk) 15:36, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I observed these images as well. Still, I don't see a headband. I honestly can't even imagine how people tell themselves they see one there.
A few facts why I believe this whole discussion is redundant:
  • 1. If Kishimoto would have gone through the "trouble" to draw him an own headband, why would he suddenly stop doing so? Never again did we see something there, right?
  • 2. Considering Zetsu's whole background story, it would not make any sense for him to come from Kusagakure as he never had anything in common with that village. We don't list Madara as a Kusagakure shinobi either, just because he spend decades of his life there, staring at Hashirama's clone, do we?
  • 3. Since you bring up the databook so often...if Kishimoto wanted to make Zetsu a Kusagakure shinobi, he would definitively list him as such in his databooks. With one-hundred percent certainty. But he never did so. I am looking at Zetsu's article in the Sha no Sho right now. The image you are using as proof is right there, yet his little box on top of the page that tells about the village of origin is empty.
If that isn't enough to convince you, I won't be able to help you any further here. Norleon (talk) 16:21, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Split Edit

So, can we separate White and Black Zetsus' page now, at last? Chapter 678 further proved they have nothing to do with each other, neither regarding creation, nor the way they "function". Black Zetsu is a parasitic symbiont that can exist on any body, control it and use its powers. He did so with original White Zetsu, but also on several other occasions. There weren't really any firm arguments for them staying together for a long time except for some people stubbornness. All we need to do is to gather more opinions of more people with common sense.Faust-RSI (talk) 05:23, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

Honestly, they should've been split long ago. Yes, I am entirely in support of splitting them. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 05:27, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
I agree, the two halves are way too different in nearly every regard to be on the same page. Kamikaze839 05:40, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
678 definitely supports this. Good luck to anyone trying to argue this. --KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 05:43, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
Go ahead for me. Seems this chapter confirmed that the Black Zetsu has different personality and abilities from the White Zetsu. —Shakhmoot Nadeshiko Village Symbol (Talk) 05:47, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

Please add that Black Zetsu is the will of Kaguya NOT Madara, as recently revealed in this chapter 05:54, May 28, 2014 (UTC) Kamui

No. You know the process around here. There are others that have to weigh in. Wait. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 06:12, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I agree, about time it should be split --Kasan94 (talk) 06:47, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I went ahead and split it. I put tabs of both new articles into this page so that links to Zetsu will still mostly work. If the tabs end up having bad side effects, then some other solution will need to be thought up. ~SnapperTo 07:25, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

Works for me. Though we should change main picture of WZ to something from the times of Obito's rehabilitation. Also, Guruguru and Hashirama should be removed from BZ infobox (somehow I can't edit it myself?!), and maybe Kaguya should be added.Faust-RSI (talk) 07:38, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
Wouldn't a simple disambiguation page be enough? Could add Guruguru and the White Zetsu Army (as links) to that disambiguation, since they have all been referred to as "Zetsu". ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 07:45, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
I was going to do that, but this a) seems less frustrating from a reader's perspective, and b) spares people's obsessive need to update redirects. I've put a {{see also}} up top for the other Zetsus. ~SnapperTo 07:52, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
Well I'm less than pleased to wake up and see this. Is there a way to preserve the old image of Zetsu at least? Most of the pictures I've seem of them together is far enough you don't get a good shot of black/white face.-TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 08:16, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
There is still a chance we'll find a picture with a closer face of WZ. Regarding BZ - he has no face at all, he is just a black mass that takes form only covering someone else's body. I think his picture should be changed to that once the anime catch up to the chapter his real look was demonstrated in.Faust-RSI (talk) 08:21, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I was talking about an image of them in one body. The headshot in the original infobox.-TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 08:45, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I think it's a technical issue. Original Zetsu page doesn't have any content of its own, it only shows separate WZ and BZ pages, thus their infoboxes. I'm not sure if we can add independent infobox here, nor that I think it's really needed.Faust-RSI (talk) 08:50, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

With all due respect, I think it took way too long to finally split this page. And why do we really need that tabbed info there? Why not just make this a disambiguation page, with Guruguru and White Zetsu Army as part of the list? Yatanogarasu (Talk) 01:21, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Not a Mangekyo user Edit

Just because he can use it while controlling Obito doesn't make it his. Sasori isn't a Magnet Release user, for example. --Mandon (talk) 05:37, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

Nope not going through this again. Read the sections above. Debate settled.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 05:39, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
^ This. He is in control of Obito's body, and initiated Kamui. He is a user same as Naruto is a Tailed Beast Ball user when in control of Kurama's power. This discussion has already been had and is solved.~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 05:40, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

You're current argument basically states that we should have Sasori listed as a user of Magnet release Officialkamuiblade (talk) Kamui

<edit: since someone thought they'd be a cute little troll and edit my message like a five year old> No. Not happening again. This argument was done and resolved. Its not the same so leave it. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 06:15, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
I absolutely L-O-V-E how people act like their opinions about rehashed arguments matter more if they keep beating on the dead horse. Seriously? Your opinions matter of course, but unless you do as advised and read the topic like two sections above, then your words have little credibility.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 06:35, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
Well, in my honest opinion Sasori should be listed as Magnet user, too--Elveonora (talk) 10:44, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
He won't until I see him using it. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 01:45, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
Well, his chakra strings were moving the puppet which had it, so shrugs. A non-conscious piece of wood can hardly be considered to be the user in such a case imo--Elveonora (talk) 12:48, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Tabs or no tabs Edit

Rather than continue this through edit summaries, please discuss it here.

To repeat my earlier points:

  1. Tabs are less frustrating from a reader's perspective, as they will not end up clicking a link that takes them to a page that just gives them another link to click.
  2. Spares people's obsessive need to update redirects, because how do you refer to Zetsu before chapter 45X? [[Black Zetsu|Zet]][[White Zetsu|su]] all over the place?

TTF says using tabs just repeats information, but what's wrong with that? It's not as though information is being copy and pasted from the individual articles to this one.

Anyway, please discuss. ~SnapperTo 20:29, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I say it defeats the purpose of the split. "Zetsu", as a term, refers not only to White and Black Zetsu (which the tabber system makes central), but to all artificial humans created by Madara from Hashirama's DNA. It was originally used to describe the merged form of White and Black Zetsu (reflected in my edit), but now applies to them all. It doesn't make any logical sense to me to have three articles with the exact same content, when the purpose of the split was to illustrate how radically different the two of them are in both personality, abilities, and purpose. With the tabber system, all that has been done is splitting the two halves into different articles and then remerging them on one page.
With a disambiguation page, like I did, you mention the fact that White and Black Zetsu were the origin of the term, but it now applies to all artificial humans, and then you can link to all occurrences of the term "Zetsu". Just makes more sense to me. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 20:37, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
The marginalization of the other Zetsus is expected, inevitable, and consistent with other pages. When some name is shared between multiple pages, one of those pages needs to take preference. In this case that preference is given to the first Zetsus seen in the series and the ones that have made the most contributions.
The purpose of the split, to my understanding, was to make it easier to distinguish one Zetsu from another. Tabs do not diminish this. If the split is to make each half wholly unique, that isn't going to happen considering how long they're together; seriously, 1/3 to 1/2 of both articles are verbatim copies of each other.
And I really think the two points I made are far more important. Wanting to do "justice" to the topic(s) is a fine thing, but if that makes it more difficult for the people who actually use the site, readers and users alike, then to hell with justice. ~SnapperTo 21:08, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
I fail to see how having to click a link to Black and White Zetsu (which by the way, are established as different characters) makes it harder on them. In fact, does it not make it easier on our readers to have all references to all Zetsu in one place? ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 21:41, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
I can make the same arguments. How does having to click a link to Guruguru and White Zetsu Army make it harder? Does it not make it easier to have both articles tabbed in one place?
Guruguru and White Zetsu Army have always been separate Zetsu since the moment of their introduction. Black and White were the only Zetsu and, from a reader's perspective, the same Zetsu for a very long time. 9/10 searches for "Zetsu" are going to intend Black, White, or both, and therefore they should be the focus of Zetsu.
Would it be an improvement for you if the see also at the top were more detailed? ~SnapperTo 23:07, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps, yes. That would be a fair enough concession. I admit, your points are fair. Just seems a bit redundant to me to have split them, and then still have them united on this page. So yes, if there is a bit more detailed of a See also section, that'd be fair enough for me. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 23:16, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I think it's incredibly redundant and sloppy to have an article for each half and then simultaneously have the original Zetsu page contain the exact same information. What's the point of separate articles if we're just going to turn Zetsu's page into a cluster containing both articles? Besides, the Zetsu article should be about the complete character, especially considering Black/White Zetsu spend the majority of the series together so what we have is both tabs being largely word for word until the very latest arcss. --Mandon (talk) 20:20, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

May I interject? Well, I've seen this on other wikis: White Zetsu Army/White Zetsu and White Zetsu Army/Black. Maybe an idea? --KiumaruHamachi (talk) 23:00, May 29, 2014 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

I see no need for the tabber system here. After all, if we are going to do tabs, then why not just never split the page into two? We can just turn this into a disambiguation. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 01:55, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

I agree with this. Let them be their own stand alone articles, and the Zetsu page be a disambiguation that links to WZ, BZ, Guruguru, and the army. "Demons run when a good man goes to war." (talk) 03:14, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
Thank God I'm not the only one. Anyone else? ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 06:11, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
The tabs are unnecessary. Plus, it's messing the infobox too. ~IndxcvNovelist talkcontribswatty 07:18, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
No opinion. I didn't want the article split at all.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 09:01, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
Do you at least agree that there needed to be some cleaner way of dividing one Zetsu's actions from the other's?
And what, IndxcvNovelist, is wrong with the infoboxes? ~SnapperTo 17:30, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
I think that, like Indx, the jutsu section is missing. Also, i too favor completely splitting the articles. However, i don't think redundancy is the issue here. Their simply two characters who were explored in the series at the same time. There's no way around that. Maybe this wouldn't be an issue if they weren't so major, but they are. That's just a coincidence. --KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 21:50, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
It's absolutely repetitive to have the Black and White Zetsu pages, and then again here. Either just keep the two split pages and turn this into a disambiguation, or return them into one page, no split whatsoever. This "compromise" we are at is totally redundant. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 00:10, May 31, 2014 (UTC)
I find it funny that, despite us being here before, that some of you think that the redundancy is the issue. It's true that it's key in deciding what to do, but it's not the point. It's really not. We've done this before. We're not new to the practice. There are a few examples i could think of off the top of my head. Think of this less as a complication, but more as a coincidence. --KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 00:45, May 31, 2014 (UTC)

How is redundancy not the issue here? There are 4 articles right now… that needs to be addresses now. Why not leave the tabs — hats off to the person who did it — it sedated both sides that want/don't want the articles should be split. That's my 2 cents at least.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 00:49, May 31, 2014 (UTC)

Even if that were to be done, the method would be the same. Maybe the separate pages would be named Zetsu/Black and Zetsu/White instead, but there would still be a necessary separateness in order to produce the current effect. That's admittedly not entirely true; you could have two versions of the article stored in the same page, but that's messier to work with. ~SnapperTo 04:00, May 31, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry bout that. Wasn't near a computer again since I left work. Anyway, yeah I haven't a clue how to make this not messy.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 10:27, May 31, 2014 (UTC)
It's simple isn't it? We make up our minds on whether we want two separate articles or have both articles merged into one. We can't have it both ways. --Mandon (talk) 08:09, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Why can't we? We have ten chapter articles in one volume article; things seem to function alright there. ~SnapperTo 08:30, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

That's different. We're talking about four articles for one character.. obviously something's amiss here. It's messy and pointless and it serves no purpose at all. --Mandon (talk) 19:29, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Tabs are unnecessary. Turn this into a disambiguation. Faust-RSI (talk) 19:45, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Bump. Why are we even splitting the Zetsu into Black and White if we are just gonna tab them like this? There are three characters, plus an army of 100,000 bearing the name "Zetsu", it makes no sense not to use this is as a simple disambiguation. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 04:19, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

So what now? Edit

Cause yeah. Looks like Madara ain't do crap.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 07:47, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

He did. He imitated Kaguya when he made them. He did read the tablet, remember. Also, can we finally agree that the Shinju (and Kaguya) have wood release? MangekyoSasuke (talk) 07:51, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

The Shinju does not have Wood Release. Nor does Kaguya. Madara imitated Kaguya and used the cultivated cells of Hashirama to created his own White Zetsu. Kaguya did it with Infinite Tsukuyomi. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 08:10, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
You sound so sure of yourself. What ur basically saying is that there are 2 different kinds of White Zetsu that just happen to look identically. Although I'm wondering, since women and non-human animals were trapped too, does that mean they would turn into a male/human WZ? ._.--Elveonora (talk) 10:43, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
I think you guys went way off what I was getting at.
This chapter implies that the original Zetsus were the original brain child of Kaguya. So wtf does that mean for well...Zetsu?--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 13:34, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Try to be more concrete, I don't get what you are getting at--Elveonora (talk) 14:03, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, something stumbled upon my mind. God: Nativity of a World of Trees actually explains why Madara's Zetsu look nothing like Hashirama despite having almost identical DNA as him. All "zetsu'd" people gain the same appearance.--Elveonora (talk) 16:23, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Basically the implications of this chapter is that all Zetsu were made through God: Nativity of a World of Trees]], to be Kaguya's soldiers. Which means either Madara didn't actually make Zetsu he just found them or Kaguya is really good with playing with toys she had never seen before.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:26, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Nah, we are 100% positive that Madara and Obito made their own WZ. Although it's more than probable that White Zetsu actually already was there somewhere (explaining why he was called an original by others) and Madara simply made Hash-enhanced replicas of him. If this is true, then WZ was a leftover Zetsu from centuries ago--Elveonora (talk) 16:34, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

back to the talk about him being a grass ninja. sooo sense he was there before all this then its possible that he did become a grass ninja and its not speculation right? Munchvtec (talk) 16:36, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Grass Village didn't exist back then. So unless he decided to become a Grass ninja later in his life before Madara found him, not really--Elveonora (talk) 16:41, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

So we've now been given a number of origin stories for White Zetsu:

  • Obito: Grown from the Hashirama-clone-tree using stored tailed beast chakra.
  • Sakura: Clones made from Hashirama's DNA using plants as a medium.
  • Madara: Grown from the Hashirama-clone-tree using the Mazo's own chakra and Yin-Yang Release.
  • Black Zetsu: Victims of the Infinite Tsukuyomi assimilated by the Shinju's life force.

They all fit together, more or less: Infinite Tsukuyomi victims + Shinju/Mazo/tailed beast chakra + connection to the Shinju/Hashirama-tree + Yin-Yang Release (?) = White Zetsu. We shouldn't claim to know whether Madara/Obito's White Zetsu were created with human victims or not until it's confirmed. Whose to say Madara didn't attach people to his Shinju knock-off after using his Sharingan-based Infinite Tsukuyomi knockoff?--BeyondRed (talk) 18:22, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

The way I understand it, Kaguya at one point used the technique, but though BZ says becoming a WZ is what happens once you're in IT too long, I don't see confirmation this actually happened at that time. Hagoromo made no mention of them or anything similar when he spoke to Naruto. If she did, she kept them well hidden and they remained so for a long time. Madara probably developed them or discovered them by experimenting with the statue after getting the Rinnegan in his old age, this is when Hashirama cells got involved in the mix. This is the main WZ we know came to be. Obito later using that White Zetsu as a template used the tailed beast chakra to make more, that were further enhanced by Kabuto. This is how I can account for all we know so far. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:50, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Too many speculations there from just one BZ's line. His line wasn't referring to the past events, he just described what WILL happen to the victims of IT. That doesn't mean it already happened in the past or that White Zetsu is a being of several thousands years old accidentally found by Madara. That's all fan-made. All we know, there are actually 4 types of Zetsus:

  1. Madara's, that are made from Hashi's DNA (which grew into Hashi's clone and a small version of God Tree with Lotus flower), using Gedo Mazou as catalyst, i.e. it means Madara's Zetsus=Hashi's DNA+GM chakra
  2. Obito's, that are similar to Madara's, but are an enhanced version of them, i.e. Obito's Zetsus=Hashi's DNA+Yamato's DNA+GM chakra+7 bijuus' chakra (!).
  3. Original White Zetsu's parasite clones - actual living beings made with a jutsu (like power of creation!).
  4. Kaguya's, that are made from actual people chakra (and maybe bodies?)+God Tree.Faust-RSI (talk) 19:09, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

He obviously was talking about the past, he ain't no oracle. Don't try to twist things in an attempt to avoid what we are being told.--Elveonora (talk) 20:24, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Then enlighten me, because you are the one twisting things here. Faust-RSI (talk) 05:24, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Elve. Like I said in the forums. We now have multiple different ways to make White Zetsu. Don't forget, Sakura and the Medical Corps proved through DNA testing that the White Zetsu Army were clones of Hashirama Senju and possessed his Wood Release. Madara and Obito both cultivated Hashirama's cells to make theirs. Kaguya uses the Infinite Tsukuyomi to make hers. I'll use the analogy again; there are a lot of different ways to cook a turkey. Its still a turkey in the end. Same logic applies here. There are a lot of different ways to make White Zetsu and it still be White Zetsu. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 07:42, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
I can't see how you agree with Elve and disagree with me, when I myself described essentialy the same methods to produce a zetsu. We didn't even discuss this topic with her. All we talked about wer past and future, i.e. if BZ described what happened in the past (Elve), or only described general process plus what will happen in the future (me).Faust-RSI (talk) 08:32, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
@Foxie, the Infinite Tsukuyomi isn't what turns them into WZ, that's just a genjutsu (seemingly) designed to grant them a peaceful death, because Kaguya obviously is a philanthropist. God: Nativity of a World of Trees transforms them into WZ. The IF is a Matrix so to speak. They are projected imagery of a perfect world full of happiness, unaware that they are dying. @Faust, it already happened in the past. Remember, it was Madara who cast God: Nativity of a World of Trees so for BZ and Kaguya to know its effect, she must have done the same. Unless you believe that BZ just guessed about a technique that he hadn't known, seen or heard of that the cocooned people will turn into WZ. To assert than you can make an omelette from eggs, someone must have done it before for you to know it's possible and replicate it.--Elveonora (talk) 10:04, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
Except it was impossible to cast IT in the past because there wasn't damn Moon back then. Sure, with her powers Kaguya could do something similar (I think Hagoromo mentioned it?), but no way on the same scale as Madara. From those experiments she could have learnt the actual effects of people turning into zetsus. Faust-RSI (talk) 10:08, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
IF doesn't require the moon. It's just a tool to help cast it onto everyone. Remember, she had a Byakugan, that pretty much substitutes for the moon.--Elveonora (talk) 10:15, June 5, 2014 (UTC)
That's what I'm saying, she couldn't cast in on everyone, but she could still try it on some group of people... What??? You just said Byakugan substitutes for the moon?? I'm not sure if I want to discuss this nonsense. Faust-RSI (talk) 10:19, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

What nonsense? I don't even know what is there to argue about. The manga without a doubt said that she used Infinite Tsukuyomi. Since as you said there was no moon back then, it's a logical deduction that her Byakugan must have helped her accomplish so--Elveonora (talk) 10:21, June 5, 2014 (UTC)

Infobox images Edit

Which ones are better for the both Zetsus' infobox images? The previous ones or the current ones? —Shakhmoot Nadeshiko Village Symbol (Talk) 10:12, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hm. I support the current ones. They seem much more like profile pictures. Nice one Shakhmoot-sama.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 10:55, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks KotoSenju-san for the compliment, but I wasn't the one who uploaded those current images. Anyhow, it's better to keep them. —Shakhmoot Nadeshiko Village Symbol (Talk) 11:08, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
Oh! Kudos to the uploader then too. Usually you upload great photos so the the confusion was easy to make. Glad that you agree. Hopefully more will share our opinion.--KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 11:20, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

Wood Release Edit

So did Hashirama play any role at all?--Elveonora (talk) 14:26, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

What are you referring to? his DNA? -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 14:28, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
Wondering if WZ's capability to use Wood Release had anything with Hashirama at all.--Elveonora (talk) 14:31, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
It is very screwy. On the one hand he shouldn't. But then Sakura and Shizune saw that most of White Zetsu DNA was basically Hashirama's. Very screwy indeed.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:35, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
It's probably safest to say that they were infused with Hashirama's DNA. How else would Madara think he had a part in their creation? Also, Ulti's comment above. -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 14:37, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
Was the original WZ actually ever shown using Wood Release or just the army clones produced with TB chakra?--Elveonora (talk) 14:41, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
(Apparently, WZ was sealed along with the TT, but summoned with the Gedo.) Through Black Zetsu's half yes. But the Army clones primarily used it. -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 14:49, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

No, the original White Zetsu was killed before he could do anything interesting. That said, Black Zetsu, which had half of White Zetsu's body did Wood Release just fine, which kinda breaks logic. -__- -TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:53, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Them having been enhanced by Madara with Hash cells makes sense, what doesn't tho is that their DNA is almost identical to Hashirama's. Not even Yamato is almost identical. It's just weird ._.--Elveonora (talk) 15:21, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Well, lets try this:

  • As I already suspected sometime back, only the White Zetsu Army are clones of Hashirama. If it hadn't been for Kaguya/Gedo Mazo, they would have looked identically to him.
  • White Zetsu was originally a human "zetsu'd" with God: Nativity of a World of Trees and the reason why Black Zetsu could use Wood Release with half of his body is because White Zetsu also got enhanced with Yamato, mystery solved--Elveonora (talk) 15:27, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

I currently understand that White Zetsu's Wood Release is due to Madara's first tinkering with them when he thought he had created them from the statue, similar to Yamato. This would result in the main White Zetsu and Black Zetsu having Wood Release, and later White Zetsu were further enhanced by Kabuto through Yamato. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:47, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

This. -- KotoTalk Page-My Contributions 15:57, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

To clarify one thing, the White Zetsu (both the ones killed at the summit and the one that impersonated Neji) were said to have DNA similar to Yamato as well as Hashirama, so it is entirely possible that they, like Yamato, simply had Hashirama's DNA implanted in them, either intentionally by Madara or just as a result of being attached to the Hashirama-tree. The other questions this new origin creates are how the "White Zetsu Army" clones were created and why they regard one particular White Zetsu as the original, despite the new explanation implying they must have come from the Mazo like the rest of the clones. Not to mention the clones seemingly created by the original's Spore Technique.--BeyondRed (talk) 16:29, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Nothing was implied about White Zetsu Army and Spore clones. Only the ones Madara created (White Zetsu, Guruguru, some other unnamed ones). White Zetsu Army and Spore clones should still be considered literal clones of White Zetsu, that also explains why they call him "original". Faust-RSI (talk) 17:08, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Height Edit

Since when has a black mass a definite height? I get that we add the Dojutsu and everything, since he used them. But how does he, as a black mass, share the same height as White Zetsu? And if we add White Zetsu's height because it's the same as the Dojutsu, then don't we have to add Obito's height, too? • Seelentau 愛 13:11, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Well, in theory, his height could be that of his form when he is "Black Humanoid Figure", and I guess that would be listed in the future databook. But yeah, it's definitely not WZ or Obito's height. Faust-RSI (talk) 13:17, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
It's an oversight, simply remove it. As Faust stated, his "true" height is as he appeared when observing Hashirama defeat Madara--Elveonora (talk) 13:21, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
But that's just one of the many forms he can take on. He maybe even coated another human at that time. How can freely formable mass have a definite height? • Seelentau 愛 13:27, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
It's irrelevant atm. Just remove WZ height and close this question for now.Faust-RSI (talk) 13:29, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
