Despite [[Suigetsu]] giving several vehement and somewhat manic reasons why not to revive [[Orochimaru]], [[Sasuke]] is resigned to his decision. Moving to execute Sasuke's orders, [[Jūgo]] retrieves some of [[Kabuto]]'s DNA using his [[Sage Transformation]] abilities, much to Suigetsu's disgust. After Jūgo places DNA on [[Anko]]'s [[Cursed Seal of Heaven]], Sasuke uses the [[Evil Releasing Method]] to revive Orochimaru as his conscious remnants exit Anko and regenerate his body from the sample. Retreating behind Kabuto as Orochimaru emerges, Suigetsu sheepishly greets his former captor, who notes that he was abreast of the situation having been able to observe everything from within Anko, further shocking them when he tells them he has no interest in the war that was currently going on. And instead, still had his sights set on Sasuke's body, but was unable to [[Living Corpse Reincarnation|steal]] it in his current state. Showing him the [[scroll]] he was given, Sasuke tells Orochimaru that he want to hear everything from the source, leading Orochimaru to question him if he has wavered from his path of revenge, to which Sasuke denies. Moving over to the immobile Kabuto which prompts Suigetsu to run to the other side of the cave Orochimaru drains Kabuto of his chakra, causing Kabuto to revert to original self. Noting to himself that Sasuke had changed since he last saw him, Orochimaru beckons him to follow him to a place he himself knows well.

Despite Minato's attempt to stop him, Obito goes after Naruto and proceeds to attack him and Sasuke. Luckily, Naruto uses his chakra arms on his father and Sasuke so the former can teleport them away. By that time, his body beginning to mutate as he attempted to attack, Obito is losing control as the Ten-Tails is asserting itself and destroying the human's mind. Though he instructs Naruto and Sasuke to follow his counter with a collaborative attack, his former student thinking of Rin and their team, Minato finds Obito had managed to regain control of his body and assume a form similar to the [[Sage of the Six Paths]] himself. Teleporting away after his arm got ripped off, Minato finds that Obito attached an orb made of mysterious substance onto him as it begins to expand. Luckily, a clone of Tobirama grabs the orb and destroys himself in an attempt to kill Obito. Elsewhere on the battlefield, deciding that the time of waiting is over, Madara battles Hashirama in an epic clash with the Allied Shinobi Forces in awe before Shikamaru uses Ino to contact their allies to not lose focus for a second.
   
While analysing the situation before them, the [[Naruto]], [[Killer B]], [[Might Guy]] and [[Kakashi]] are told by [[Tobi]] to bare witness to the beginning of the end once the [[Ten-Tails]] is fully revived. Confused that Tobi would be able to do this, Kakashi notes that the war was all for the sake of preventing [[Akatsuki]] from attaining the [[Gyūki|Eight]] and [[Nine-Tails]] and since they still had the beasts, wonders whether Tobi was lying. Remembering what Tobi had said and then the fact that they had used a clone made from its [[chakra]] to evade Taka, Gyūki reminds B of this who then notifies his comrades. Speaking to Naruto directly, Kurama notes that its chakra was also present in the [[Benihisago]] and [[Kohaku no Jōhei]] which the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path had consumed and asks Naruto to let him speak through the boy to personally reveal what it knows to the others. As the fox explains the story behind the two [[Treasured Tools of the Sage of the Six Paths]], the [[Gold and Silver Brothers]] and how they had come to attain its chakra after which Kakashi corroborates his story with the intel received from headquarters. With this, Kakashi declares that he would like them to do something before the beast is revived leading Tobi to retort that because Kakashi always spoke so easily, it had led him to live a life full of regret shocking both Kakashi and leading [[Guy]] to question Tobi once again, on who he was. Rebuffing this, Tobi told Guy it would make no sense to tell him because he didn't remember faces. Interjecting, Kurama tells them that as Kakashi said, now was the only time to do something about the situation as the [[Sage of the Six Paths]] had told them that the revival of the Ten-Tails signalled the end of the world. Answering Naruto's questioning of the Ten-Tails' power, Kurama tells him of the beast's might and the fact that amongst all the names it was known by it was also seen as the progenitor of all that existed in the world. The beast then goes on to state that though even it alone would stand no chance against the beast, it may be possible since Tobi did not possess all of the Eight-Tails and its own chakra. Tobi however rebuffs this stating that he only needed the beast to cast the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]] on the world. Switching back with Kurama, Naruto declares his dreams to Tobi with Guy, Kakashi and even B (who disclaims female attributes he values, much to the Eight-Tails' shock) rally behind him. As Tobi launches into another speech, Naruto enters his [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]] and attempts to land a high-speed [[Rasengan]] attack on the statue, but Tobi blocks it with his [[gunbai]] prompting Naruto to state that it seems as though he would really have to bash Tobi's mask. Tobi responds noting that there was one thing he could not part with and then declares that he would not let them touch the statue.

By that time, having used the substance to avoid being consumed in the explosion, an unscathed Obito deflects an impulsive Sasuke's Amaterasu before Naruto aids his friend so the two can made an opening for Minato and Tobirama. With the Second and Fourth Hokages preparing for an Instantaneous Swapping Flying Thunder God Technique before Tobirama appears behind Obito, Sasuke and Naruto rush forth with an Kagutsuchi-infused Rasenshuriken. Expecting to be attacked by the Second Hokage, Obito learns he fell for a trap as Minato suddenly has the Rasenshuriken and takes Tobirama's place to attack Obito from behind.

[[File:Naruto attacks Obito anime.png|thumb|left|Naruto figures out that senjustu attacks harm Obito.]]
Formulating their strategy as Naruto produces a [[shadow clone]], the shinobi agree that the use of feint attacks would be crucial in this battle because of Tobi's abilities. Moving directly towards Tobi, Naruto uses the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]] while Kakashi asks B to hoist him into the air as he activates his [[Mangekyō Sharingan]]. Deciding that it was best to avoid direct contact Guy takes out his pair of [[Sōshūga]]. Tobi, wielding his gunbai is able to stave off Naruto's attacks but ultimately has a harder time at things once Guy joins the fray. Using his nunchaku to counter Tobi's gunbai, Guy is able to sent the masked man throttling towards Naruto and his Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball. Using that opportunity, Kakashi activates [[Kamui]] with the intention of ripping the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path's neck off. However, the statue which by this time was bleeding from the eyes and metamorphosing — is seeming able to nullify the attack which confused Kakashi greatly. As Naruto's attack is about to make contact, Tobi teleports prompting Naruto to [[Negative Emotions Sensing|sense his intent]] to anticipate Tobi emerging from the ground in a surprise attack. Dodging the initial attack, Naruto, now separated from the others, has a harder time blocking Tobi's gunbai. Kakashi [[Chakra Flow|imbues]] a [[kunai]] with the [[Lightning Release]] and once again calls out to B. Launching him across the battlefield, Kakashi easily cuts through a rock that separated him from Naruto and then launches the kunai at Tobi. Forced to become intangible, but not one to give up so easily, Tobi changed the trajectory of the kunai and sends it hurtling towards Naruto. Telling him to ignore the kunai, Kakashi uses Kamui once again to warp the kunai away. Regrouping as the last attack seemingly fails to land, the shinobi wonder how they were going to defeat Tobi. Just then a tiny crack appears on Tobi's mask.
+
The Konoha ninja's elation at landing a direct hit are quickly diminished, when Obito makes use of his new abilities to push aside the flames and heal himself. At this point, they realise that Minato's arm had not regenerated, and figured out that the Uchiha was using [[Yin-Yang Release]], and thus be able to nullify the regeneration of Impure World Reincarnation, and making the reincarnated vulnerable to fatal attacks. In response to this, Naruto tries to enter [[Jinchūriki Forms#Tailed Beast Mode|Tailed Beast Mode]] in order to deliver an even more powerful attack, but fails completely, earning himself blank looks from both enemy and allies. After Kurama tells Naruto to hold off from using its chakra, Gamakichi fires a [[natural energy]] infused [[Starch Syrup Gun]] in a last ditch effort to help before disappearing. Obito easily blocks it, however both Tobirama and Naruto notice something amiss. As Minato questions why Obito has discarded his dream of becoming Hokage, Naruto uses this chance to enter [[Sage Mode]]. When the Uchiha explained his reasoning and insults the Hokage, Tobirama assists Naruto in delivering a Rasengan, proving that, while resistant to [[ninjutsu]], Obito is vulnerable to [[senjutsu]].

Noticing a slight crack on Tobi's mask, Guy and Naruto thought that Naruto's last attack had actually hit the mask; however Kakashi disagrees, noting that the type of crack was by a sharper object as he remembered the kunai he warped away with Kamui. As Kakashi came up with a hypothesis on Tobi's ability, Tobi erects a [[Uchiha Flame Battle Encampment|barrier]] to thwart B's chance strike the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path in midst of its transformation into the Ten-Tails. Once figuring figured out a possible way to attack Tobi, Kakashi details his plans to the others. With B launching them directly at Tobi, Guy starts off unleashing his Sōshūga only for Tobi to avoid it using his dematerialisation ability and predicting Guy's moves with his [[Sharingan]]. As a result, Guy loses the Sōshūga and steps away from Tobi's front. Naruto then follows up quickly by launching a Rasengan, which is avoided easily by Tobi, who keeps insisting on the futility of the strategy. However, the Rasengan seemingly disperses before reaching Tobi, followed by a sudden explosion that hits his right shoulder. After being hurled away, the masked man uses his gunbai to stand back up. Tobi then realised that the attack was transported to his right arm, using Kamui, just as he was about to materialise. Realising Tobi's ability now, Kakashi notes that Tobi was not using two separate techniques to dematerialise and warp things away, but a single technique.
+
As Naruto passionately defends the title of Hokage and his father's legacy, Kurama's [[Yin]] half within Minato spurs Minato to action. After Naruto and Tobirama fall back, a recovered Obito decides to execute the Eye of the Moon Plan by first creating an enormous [[Wood Release: Flowering Tree|tree]] to wipe out the remainder of the Allied Shinobi Forces while boxing them in with a [[Six Red Yang Encampment|barrier]] to prevent them from escaping. To counter the turn of events, Naruto thinks up a risky plan before asking his father to bump fists with him, the act between father and son allowing Yang and Yin-Kurama to connect to each other as well.

=== The Will of the Shinobi ===
Urging Kakashi to explain it in the simplest way possible so that they could readjust their strategy, Guy and the others listen on as Kakashi explains that Tobi's ability to become intangible and absorb things were one and the same. He then explains that when he makes himself intangible, what Tobi actually does is to warp away the part of his body that was being attacked to the [[other dimension]]; so while it existed there, all attacks would simply phase through his body. However, since Kamui shares the same dimension, the [[lightning]]-enhanced kunai that Kakashi warped away, passed through the "''intangible''" part of Tobi's body and ended up in the other dimension and scratched the part of his body that was sent there in order to make him appear intangible. When questioned by B how their two techniques were linked to the same dimension, a hesitant Guy began to question Kakashi but the latter cuts across him to ask Tobi directly where he got the Sharingan from. Responding, Tobi reveals he obtained his right Sharingan eye during the [[Third Shinobi World War|previous war]] at [[Kannabi Bridge]] the moment that Kakashi became recognised as the {{translation|"Hero of the Sharingan"|写輪眼の英雄|Sharingan no Eiyū}}. With Kakashi left speechless by the revelation, Tobi belittles him while perpetrating the [[Eye of the Moon Plan]] as the right move for humanity. However, Naruto still refuses to accept Tobi's goal with the intent of not giving up his dreams. Having its [[jinchūriki]] let it speak through him to chastise their opponent as well, Kurama tells Tobi that it was entrusted to Naruto, who had befriended him, for the express reason to stop Tobi. Spurred onward, Naruto enters his [[Tailed Beast Mode]] and charges at Tobi.

After telling Obito that he will not let the world end as long as he lives, Naruto dons his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode mantle with Minato following suit. Their combined efforts bolster the [[Version 1]]-like mantles around the shinobi thus allowing Minato to teleport the Alliance outside the barrier before the [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s exploded. With this, the team presses onwards in their assault on Obito with the father-son duo going into Tailed Beast Mode and Naruto also using [[Sage Mode]] to bolster the attacks so that they would affect Obito. The Uchiha, however, was prepared for the assault this time and was able to deflect it. Before the Alliance can launch another attack, Obito decides to press on with the Eye of the Moon Plan as he manifests the Ten-Tails and has it transform into a tree that instinctively proceeds to suck the chakra out of any shinobi that it grabs. Madara reveals the tree to be the Ten-Tails in its tree form, while telling Hashirama of the monster's true origins along with the chakra within all ninja. Barely escaping the branches with Hiruzen's help as he is teleported to safety, Naruto looks around his friends and allies in anguish as Obito proclaims that their suffering will end once the tree form's flower, the crown piece in creating the Infinite Tsukuyomi, blooms.

Charging forward, Naruto attacks Tobi using a giant [[chakra arms]] which Tobi simply phases through, chiding the boy of thinking that he could defeat him on his own. As Guy tries to snap Kakashi out the shock brought on from Tobi's revelation, they see the masked man send three giant [[shuriken]] hurtling towards Naruto from the other dimension. Catching two of them on his tentacles, one of B and [[Gyūki]]'s tentacles is cut by the third but is stopped by Naruto who retorts Tobi's earlier remark by telling he's never truly alone as he has Kurama and the others supporting him. Now motivated by Guy to act, Kakashi notes that he had to time the next use of his Kamui perfectly, despite Tobi chastising his "''borrowed power''" and stated intentions of showing him Kamui's true potential.
+
[[Desert Suspension|En route]] to the battlefield, the five [[Kage]] see the Ten-Tails' tree form and wonder what it was, which leads [[Tsunade]] to ask Katsuyu to explain what was happening. When Shikamaru is found to be one of the victims of the tree's attack, Sakura tries to have Katsuyu heal him [[Remote Healing|remotely]], but Katsuyu informs her that its clones also died due to having their chakra absorbed by the tree, leading the her and Sai to rush to their comrade's side instead. The Allied Shinobi Forces members spiral into deep despair, and taking advantage of their morale, Obito declares that he would not kill those who stopped resisting, but Hashirama's [[wood clone]] reminds them not to give up. Hiruzen's sentiments causes [[Orochimaru]], who had just arrived with Suigetsu and Karin, to note that pessimism was very out of character for his sensei. As Madara and Hashirama continued to fight, the Uchiha reveals that even without the full chakra of the Eight and Nine-Tails, the tree would bloom in approximately fifteen minutes, during which Madara planned to take Obito's place using Hashirama's [[senjutsu]] abilities.
   
Acting immediately, Tobi jumps into the air and sends out a number of [[chakra receivers]] which pierce B and Gyūki. Warning Naruto not to let them touch him as it sealed off the [[tailed beasts]]' power, Naruto creates a [[shadow clone]] while being protected by Gyūki. While a clone charged forward with the [[Rasengan]], the original prepared the [[Tailed Beast Ball]]. As the clone prepares to attack, Kakashi seemingly warps away the Rasengan again while Tobi — seeing the same attack pattern — decides to attack the clone with one of the stakes, rather than having him go through him. With the clone seemingly dispelled, Tobi phases through the Tailed Beast Ball, and fully enters the other dimension. There, Tobi is shocked to see Naruto and realises that Kakashi had warped the clone there to wait for him. Declaring that he had nowhere to run, Naruto slams the Rasengan into Tobi's face, shattering the mask with Naruto asking his enemy who he is.

As the info is relayed to him, Hashirama's wood clone called out for a [[Yamanaka]], and while startled, [[Ino]] responds to the First and [[Mind Body Transmission Technique|patches]] him through to the Alliance. Connected, the clone passes on the recent revelation, and also tries to boost the shinobi's confidents, telling them to not give up. As the Ten-Tails' tree form moves again to attack, a large chunk of its root is cut off by a [[Susanoo]] created by [[Sasuke]], who asks Naruto if he had already reached the limit of his capacity. Responding to his friends question, Naruto once again enters both [[Tailed Beast Mode]] and [[Sage Mode]] and through Ino's technique his feelings and memories are passed to everyone. Remembering his time as a child and the people he had lost along the way, Naruto notes that he did not want to have any more regrets, and that the sacrifices made would not be in vain.
   
[[File:Tobi's face is revealed.png|thumb|left|Tobi's true identity is revealed.]]

[[File:Five Kage arrival.png|thumb|The five Kage arrive on the battlefield.]]
With memories of their old friend from their days at the [[Academy]] to [[Chūnin Exams]] and later the former's promotion to [[jōnin]], Kakashi and Guy recognise the face of the unmasked ninja to be that of their old comrade [[Obito Uchiha]]. Shocked by this revelation, Kakashi and Guy started asking the once masked man whether he truly was Obito, but upon seeing his Mangekyō Sharingan, Kakashi noted that there was now no doubt about it. However, Obito reiterated his point that it was insignificant what they called him, and all that mattered to him was his Eye of the Moon Plan. Kakashi had a flashback to the time when Obito died, and then asked whether he had survived the cave in. This led Naruto to ask them who the person in front of them was. Guy answered that he was a former classmate of theirs who supposedly died during the Third Shinobi World War. Kakashi, still in shock, asked Obito that if he had survived then why had he not made this fact known ''until now''. Obito retorts that whether he survived or not was unimportant. However, if Kakashi really had to have an answer to why Obito had done what he did, it was simply because Kakashi had let Rin die. Even more devastated by this response, Kakashi asked him if he was going to blame him for it. Obito answered that he did not see any point in blaming this "useless" reality which would "disappear" soon enough.
+
With new determination and a chakra boost from [[Yin]]-[[Kurama]], Naruto charges forward into battle alongside Sasuke, who has [[Jūgo]] use the [[Sage Transformation]] on his [[Susanoo]] to imbue it with [[natural energy]], creating the [[Cursed Seal of Heaven]] markings on Sasuke's Susanoo. Ready for action, the two shinobi plunge back into battle against [[Obito]], who took note of how time and time again Naruto would pick himself up from the rut of despair. With this, Orochimaru reflects on how Sasuke seemingly had the potential to surpass even Madara Uchiha himself, while Tobirama notes that Naruto was in a lot of ways like his brother Hashirama: faults and all. With the [[Allied Shinobi Forces|shinobi]] still somewhat doubting themselves and contemplating waiting for directives from the current [[Kage]], Hashirama [[Mind Body Transmission Technique|shares]] with them all his memories of the [[Kage Summit|first summit]] of the five Kage. How the meeting unfolded is revealed to all; what rings home for them all, is Hashirama's wish for all shinobi to be united. With this, Hashirama rallies the troops to amass their worries, their resolve, their sorrows and strength in order to fight. Ultimately, Hashirama's wish for the future is answered by the appearance of the five current Kage to the battlefield, all standing as a united front.

The five Kage disperse across the battlefield in order to strengthen the wills of the shinobi from their respective villages. Sakura is still attempting to heal Shikamaru, who is slowly slipping away due to an astounding loss of chakra. However, Naruto's [[Version 1]] chakra reemerges and begins to give Shikamaru some strength, which Ino later notes that Naruto did subconsciously. Tsunade arrives to their location and easily heals Shikamaru back to full health, while also commending Sakura for her recent achievements. While a reformed Allied Shinobi Alliance, led by their respective Kage, begin attacking the tree, Naruto and Sasuke are still engaging Obito. Meanwhile, Kakashi is healing himself in the [[Kamui's Dimension|other dimension]], while also pondering Obito's true feelings and his buried [[Will of Fire]] deep within him. Just as Naruto and Sasuke believe they have found an opening, Obito deflects their attacks and manages to force Naruto out of his senjustu-enhanced [[Tailed Beast Mode]] and Sasuke out of his Susanoo. As Obito asks Naruto why he would want to save a world that would ultimately only hurt him in the long run, Naruto replies that he would never go back on his word because it is his [[nindō]]. Naruto and Sasuke agree to put an end to the battle once and for all as Sasuke's Susanoo encases Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode.
Naruto tried to rally his sensei, telling him that right now, Obito's plan needed to be stopped and that he would listen to the story later. Obito used the [[Fire Release: Blast Wave Wild Dance]] technique sending a giant vortex of flames towards his opponents. Kakashi, unable to register what was happening, simply stood there despite Guy calling out to him. Naruto, however, intercepted the attacks with [[Kurama]]'s tails. Before any side could act further, they were interrupted by [[Madara]]'s appearance on their battlefield. Standing beside the younger Uchiha, the legendary shinobi remarked that Obito seemed to be having fun, much to the onlookers' surprise as they wonder what had happened to the [[Kage]].
 
   
[[File:Five Kage defeated.png|thumb|left|The five Kage defeated.]]

===Obito's Last Stand===
Madara casually replies that the Kage are "not okay", each having been critically wounded in their attempts to stop him. Obito returns the [[gunbai]] to Madara, which he uses to block a volley of chakra receivers Naruto sends flying at them and [[Uchiha Return|repel]] Naruto's Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball. All the while he lectures Obito, both for imitating the Ten-Tails' revival before capturing the Eight and the Nine-Tails and for reincarnating him through the Impure World Reincarnation instead of using [[Nagato]]'s [[Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique]] as planned. He decides to make the best of the situation and moves to capture the Eight and the Nine-Tails in hopes to seal them in Demonic Statue of the Outer Path with the time they have left.

[[File:Susanoo K11.png|thumb|right|Sasuke and the Konoha 11 (excluding Neji and with Sai in Sakura's place) engage Obito.]]
  +
With Kurama now in Susanoo armour, Naruto and Sasuke prepare to attack Obito once more. Realising their strength, Obito manifests a gigantic [[Yin-Yang]] shield and the Sage of Six Path's legendary [[Sword of Nunoboko]] to counter them. As the two young shinobi rush in, Naruto creates nine [[Rasengan]] within the tails of his Susanoo-enhanced Tailed Beast Mode. Naruto then uses Ino's [[Mind Body Transmission Technique]] to contact the [[Konoha 11]], excluding Neji (who died), Sakura, and [[Sai]] to enter the fray. As they join the battle, the Tailed Beast Mode mantles envelope them and Naruto instructs them to use the Rasengan to break Obito's shield. After the Konoha 11 and Sai destroy the shield, Sasuke's [[Susanoo Sword]] breaks the Sword of Nunoboko and manages to slice through Obito. From there, Naruto proceeds to siphon out the other tailed beasts while Gaara attempts to reclaim [[Shukaku]] and Killer B retrieves the fragment of Gyūki. Knowing that the tree would become a lifeless husk again if he allows the jinchūriki to succeed, Obito wrestles with them for the chakra. However, the rest of Allied Shinobi Forces and Sasuke's allies join in helping Naruto in grabbing hold of the chakra through Minato's Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.
   
Madara leaves Guy and Kakashi to Obito. Kakashi takes this opportunity to question Obito about what happened to him. After the events of the Kannabi Bridge, Obito was found and rescued by an aging Madara. Madara tended to his injuries and, though he had to amputate Obito's arm, he restored it and the damaged half of his body with parts from a Zetsu. Obito was grateful for Madara's help but was adamant about returning to his team-mates: Kakashi and Rin. Time passed as he recovered and began to rehabilitate under the watch of two Zetsus: White Zetsu and a [[Spiral Zetsu|spiral-faced Zetsu]]. One day, White Zetsu returned to the hideout and alerted Obito that his comrades were in danger, surrounded by [[Kirigakure]] shinobi. With the aid of the spiral-faced Zetsu forming a suit to reduce his physical limitations, Obito rushed to help them. Upon arrival, he found Kakashi's hand [[Chidori|running through]] Rin's chest. As Rin died, it caused Obito's Sharingan and the one he gave to Kakashi to become [[Mangekyō Sharingan]]. While Kakashi passed out, an enraged Obito slaughtered the Kirigakure ninja. He looked upon Rin's dead body and, devastated by her death, concluded he must be in hell.

[[File:biju released.png|thumb|left|The tailed beasts extracted from the Ten-Tails.]]
  +
Within his subconscious, having begun to imagine what his life would have been if he returned to the village instead of Madara after Rin's death, Obito sees himself alone against the entire Alliance as he begins to contemplate and grapples to come to terms with what he starts to view to be regret. However, using their link to reach him, an empathic Naruto tells Obito that despite his declaration of being no one, he was in fact someone with dreams. Telling Obito he was and still is Obito Uchiha, Naruto vows to destroy the metaphysical mask he created for himself. Even despite attempting to strangle the youth, insisting he regrets nothing in the choices he made, Obito struggles with his inner turmoil when Naruto pointed out that Rin could never accept the man he is now. As Naruto grabs Obito's hand, the Allied Shinobi Forces succeed in freeing the tailed beasts.
   
[[File:Obito declares to Rin.jpg|thumb|Obito declares to a dead Rin that he will change the world.]]

[[File:Minato stops Kakashi.png|thumb|Minato stops Kakashi from killing Obito.]]
This events changed Obito and gave him resolve to change fate by destroying the world and create a new one where Rin still lives. Remembering the Zetsus' discussion over Madara's plans to create just such a world, Obito decides to become Madara's apprentice to achieve that goal. Over time, Madara imparted Obito with all that he knew: the legend of the [[Sage of the Six Paths]], the [[Eye of the Moon Plan]], and all the necessary steps to bring the plan to fruition. He then infused White Zetsu with a part of his mind, completing his creation with the Black Zetsu persona. Madara then took himself off of life support, dying so that he might be brought back at the planned juncture. Left with Madara's name to take as his own, with Zetsu by his side, Obito spent the following decades setting the pieces in place with his meeting with Nagato who was vital to Madara's resurrection. Inspired to cause the [[Nine-Tails' Attack on Konoha]] after overhearing Kakashi, Obito fully embraces his new ideals when he confronted his former mentor [[Minato Namikaze]].
+
Utterly defeated, gazing at the [[moon]] while lamenting that he could never fill the void in his heart, [[Obito]] did not notice [[Sasuke]] running at him with intend to cut down. However, as the [[Allied Shinobi Forces|Alliance]] were about to join in before [[Tsunade]] tells them to stand down, [[Kakashi]] manages to [[Kamui|return]] from the [[other dimension]]. Stopping Sasuke, Kakashi informs his former student that killing Obito is his burden to bear, yet is stopped by [[Minato Namikaze|Minato]]. From there, the three members of [[Team Minato]] speak of their ordeals and what they each became since [[Rin]]'s death. Kakashi then tells a doubtful Obito that [[Naruto]] would not ended up like him because he had many friends to him along the way. By that time, after the freed [[tailed beasts]] thanked him for freeing them from the [[Ten-Tails]]'s body, Naruto focuses his attention away from Obito to find Madara with the intention of stopping the Uchiha for good.

A defeated Obito watches as Naruto [[Big Ball Rasenshuriken|attacks]] an [[Wood Release: Wood Dragon|immobilised]] [[Madara]] from atop the tree, that [[Hashirama]] managed to subdue besides being [[Chakra Receiver|pinned]] down himself. The Allied Shinobi Forces notices the direction of Naruto's attack and begin rushing to the location. [[Shukaku]] agrees to assist [[Gaara]] with stopping Madara, with the other tailed beasts following suit. [[Sai]] [[Super Beast Imitating Drawing|flies]] to the top of the tree to collect Naruto while Madara recovers from Naruto's attack. Meanwhile, Obito, who is incapacitated due to the extraction of the tailed beasts, resolves to using the [[Outer Path — Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique]] to revive those who have been killed during the war, stating that he finally understands [[Nagato]]'s actions. Before he could do so, however, [[Black Zetsu]] emerges and takes over his body, forcing him use the same technique to revive Madara instead. Much to the shock of Naruto and the others, and his own satisfaction, Madara is revived in the flesh.

In present time, when Madara attempts to have him see things his way, [[Naruto]] declares that he is Minato's son and would not be persuaded by him. Noting that he was being lenient because Naruto was a true [[jinchūriki]], declares no longer hold back. Creating an enormous [[Wood Dragon|wooden dragon]], he notes that it had been used by Hashirama Senju in the past to bound the Nine-Tails, which prompts Naruto to manifest Kurama's body in [[Tailed Beast Mode]] to fight it. Asking Obito why he chose to follow someone like Madara, the [[Uchiha]] notes that all that was left was for him and Kakashi to have their final battle as he had nothing left to say to him.
+
As Madara's eyes crumble, having bestowed them to [[Nagato]] prior to his death, he is suddenly struck ablaze by [[Amaterasu]], courtesy of Sasuke. The legend is unfazed though, and simply [[Chakra Absorption Techniques|absorbed]] the technique. As his armour falls away, Madara reminds [[Hashirama]] about the conversation they had under the [[Naka Shrine]], stating that he believes the unity stated refers to the combination of both [[Uchiha]] and [[Senju]], revealing the face of Hashirama on his chest. Stating that the face was due to [[Kabuto Yakushi|Kabuto]], Madara quickly bypasses Naruto and [[Sai]], so as to grab onto his old enemy and drain him of his [[senjutsu]] chakra, turning the face on his chest into [[Sage Mode]]. Sasuke then goes on the attack, intent on killing Madara now that he has been fully revived, however the older Uchiha manages to grab the younger's [[Sword of Kusanagi (Sasuke Uchiha)|blade]], planning on taking Sasuke's eyes until he gets his original back.

[[File:Madara targets Tailed_Beasts.png|thumb|left|Madara prepares to capture the tailed beasts.]]
Obito and Kakashi continue their battle, with the former unleashing a barrage of shuriken only to be stopped by Kakashi's [[Earth Release: Earth-Style Wall|wall of earth]]. As Obito slips through the wall, Kakashi continues to ask him why and to ask him if it is related to Rin, to which Obito tells him to shut up. Obito then warps Kakashi to the [[other dimension]], but his victory is short lived, as Kakashi returns using Kamui. In the meantime, Madara's Wood Dragon begins absorbing [[Kurama]]'s chakra, causing Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode to falter. Obito begins to overwhelm Kakashi, bringing him to his knees. Madara uses Wood Release to bind [[Killer B]] and [[Might Guy]], then begins to activate his [[Susanoo]] to finish things up on the battlefield. Resolved, Naruto notes that the Uchiha's ideals annoyed him to no end and, creating a [[shadow clone]], he is able to stop both Obito's shuriken and Madara's [[Susanoo Sword]] from making killing blows on Kakashi and Guy. Hearing Naruto's words that he would protect his friends, Kakashi and Guy both spring into action with the former using [[Lightning Cutter]] to destroy Obito's other shuriken and Guy using [[Daytime Tiger]] to attack Madara. Turning to his former friend, Kakashi tells Obito that he still remembered what he had taught him in the past and what he could do now, was protect Naruto.
+
Meanwhile, Obito, [[Kakashi]] and [[Minato]] learn about Madara's revival. Just as [[Black Zetsu]] attempts to take the [[Rinnegan]], the former [[Hokage]] and his pupil simultaneously attempt to attack the creature, who quickly attaches itself to Obito before they reach it. Explaining that he is Madara's [[Will Materialisation|will]], it recalls how it escaped. Though [[Chōjūrō]] managed to pin the upper half down, after bisecting Black Zetsu, the lower half was also sentient and escaped to help his master later. Back with Madara, the Uchiha attempts to persuade Sasuke into joining his side, but the younger adamantly refuses. Both Sai and Naruto attempt to attack Madara in a pincer attack, but he manages to [[Fire Release: Hiding in Ash and Dust Technique|push]] both back while escaping Sasuke's blade. As he instantly starts healing, Madara then turns his attention to the incoming tailed beasts. Seeing that they were between the beasts and Madara, the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] quickly get out of the way, with [[Killer B]] and [[Gyūki|Gyūki's]] help.

[[File:Tailed Beasts vs Madara.png|thumb|The tailed beasts simultaneously attack Madara.]]
As Obito questions Kakashi's resolve, the Copy Ninja's sentiments are echoed by Guy who is severely weakened. Seeing this, [[Gyūki]] notes that all [[Konoha]]-nin liked to act tough before taking advantage of the loosened grip of its wooden restraints and warning Naruto that the Wood Release binding could suppress a [[tailed beasts]] power. Obito uses his own wood technique to attempt to restrain Naruto while he attacked Kakashi, but is sent reeling by Naruto's intercepting headbutt. Gyūki then decides to attack the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] before its transformation into the Ten-Tails is complete, leaving Obito to Naruto. Naruto declares that he can see Obito's suffering face, though Obito counters by saying it is Kakashi who is truly suffering. As Naruto notes that he had to do something for Kakashi who was worn out, Kurama switches places with Naruto and throws the Copy Ninja at Obito. Though he warps Kakashi to the other dimension, Obito learns too late that Kurama revitalised Kakashi with its chakra so he can attack Obito in the other dimension whenever he uses Kamui to dodge Naruto's attacks. With Obito wounded as Kakashi returns to the real world, Naruto joins Killer B in combining their [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s to create a massive sphere to fire it on the [[Uchiha Flame Battle Encampment|barrier]] containing the Demonic Statue. After the explosion, they note that the statue's [[chakra]] vanishes, causing Kakashi to question whether this is the end. However, the revived Ten-Tails appears from the clearing smoke, prompting Obito to declare that it is was indeed the end of this world. Elsewhere, though disappointed that the Eight and Nine-Tails were not captured in time, a recovered [[Madara]] notes that they should begin their plan.
+
[[Gaara]], together with Shukaku, [[Wind Release: Sand Scattering Bullets|launch a mass of sand projectiles]] at Madara. Gaara then manipulates the sand in the Uchiha's blood to temporarily immobilise him as he is ricocheted between [[Matatabi]], [[Isobu]], [[Son Gokū]], [[Kokuō]] and [[Chōmei]], before landing in a [[Sticky Slime Field|sticky field]] courtesy of [[Saiken]]. Gaara and Shukaku then act quickly, attempting [[Desert Layered Imperial Funeral|to]] [[Desert Layered Imperial Funeral Seal|seal]] the Uchiha before he could recover. Though they manage to do so, Madara still manages to break out using [[Susanoo]], but is quickly knocked back down by Naruto and [[Kurama]]. They are then joined by B and Gyūki, and together, the beasts use their tails to rain down a barrage of hits, stripping away the Susanoo to get to the man within. Though the attack costs Madara his right arm, he manages to escape. A [[White Zetsu Army|White Zetsu]] then emerges from the ground which carried Madara's Rinnegan. Taking the eye and the clone's right arm he attaches both, claiming that now the real "fun" begins.

+
Though temporarily overjoyed at being alive, and able to "feel the fight", Madara quickly returns his attention to the battle. As the Uchiha prepares a [[Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path|summoning]], Kurama shudders as he recalls how Madara had used to summon it, which receives a chastening from Shukaku, who in return gets a warning about the "mere" human. As the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] is summoned, the object in question suddenly emerges from Obito. Kakashi attempts to warp it away, but only manages to take an arm. As the tailed beasts wonder at how Madara is capable of summoning the statue, Naruto quickly manages to figure it out himself. Back with Obito, Black Zetsu again attempts to take the Rinnegan from its weakened host, but through pure will power, Obito manages to prevent it. When Zetsu states that the Rinnegan is to return to Madara, Obito claims that he has hidden the right eye and Kakashi will crush the left. However, Black Zetsu mocks his host's ignorance, stating that White Zetsu has already found and returned the right eye, and Obito would be dead if it wasn't attached to him. It goes on to say that the only reason that it still attached to the dying man, is because he knows that Kakashi and Minato would have already killed it otherwise. Madara soon recovers from the damage he received earlier, claiming to White Zetsu that he has gotten careless considering he now possesses Hashirama's recovery power. He then resolves to be more careful, and will instead use the Rinnegan's ability to the fullest. Madara then uses [[Limbo: Border Jail]], and while at first it doesn't seem to do anything, one by one, each of the beasts are blown back. He then launches [[Demonic Statue Chains|chains from the statue]], which attach to, and starts pulling the tailed beasts towards it. Madara declares he will extract the Eight and Nine-Tails from their [[jinchūriki]].
Shocked to the see the Ten-Tails before them, Naruto surmises that they must have been tricked as he was unable to [[Negative Emotions Sensing|sense]] the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path's malevolent chakra. However, Kurama tells the young man that it was impossible to sense the beast in the Tailed Beast Mode as the beast had neither feelings nor ideals and was akin to [[natural energy]] and that using [[Sage Mode]] to sense how powerful it was would be a different matter. Meanwhile, [[Obito]] and Madara relocate atop the beast at it attaches its tendrils onto them. Obito notes that he would like to commence the [[Eye of the Moon Plan|plan]] immediately, but Madara is more in favour of testing out the beast's power. As Naruto's attempt to gauge the Ten-Tails' power in Sage Mode ends in Naruto realising that it was indeed truly immeasurable, Kurama asks Gyūki to hand him Might Guy and [[Kakashi]] so he could restore their chakra. Taking command, Kurama devises a battle strategy to face the beast launching a [[Continuous Tailed Beast Balls|continuous]] stream of Tailed Beast Balls, which culminates with Gyūki seemingly being decimated by the Ten-Tails' Tailed Beast Ball, but it was later revealed that Kakashi had warped it away while being launched by Naruto along with the latter's clone overhead the Ten-Tails where Kakashi released Gyūki to aim a Tailed Beast Ball. But the attack was flicked back at him, leaving Naruto's [[shadow clone]] and Kakashi open for an attack. After the clone successfully pushes Kakashi out of the way, Obito reflects on how much Naruto was like himself before the Ten-Tails' attack disperses the shadow clone and sends Gyūki flying.
 
   
At their limits, Kurama and Gyūki tell Naruto and B to buy them some time while they generate more chakra for use. As the opposition notices this, and his team-mates already somewhat incapacitated, Naruto prepares to create more shadow clones which Madara chides him for, calling him incompetent. Kakashi also echoes these sentiments and Obito goes on to explain to Naruto that numbers will not change anything as he laments that all shinobi like the youth are powerless and would eventually become like him one day. This causes Naruto to lash out at Obito once again stating his dream to become [[Hokage]] which leads Obito to tell him that he would make him the Hokage inside the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]] as he has the Ten-Tails prepare to fire a Tailed Beast Ball to obliterate Naruto and his allies in one blow.

=== The Fall of Two Shinobi ===
  +
[[File:Naruto's reaction.JPG|thumb|Naruto reacts to Kurama's extraction.]]
  +
Naruto tries to exit Tailed Beast Mode, but finds it futile, as Madara has Kurama's chakra trapped with the chains. The clone of White Zetsu informs Madara that it would be best to recapture the beasts in numerical order, starting with Shukaku. Madara, with a readjusted strategy, attempts to capture Shukaku with the chains first, however Gaara manages to stop this transaction with two enormous [[Desert: Hand|sand hands]]. Shukaku, shocked at Gaara's actions, remembers the words of his [[Bunpuku|previous jinchūriki]], realising that the time has come where humans and Tailed Beasts can be comrades. Madara quickly equips his Susanoo and hurls one of his [[Susanoo Sword|swords]] at Gaara, though Shukaku intercepts it. Madara sends another sword across the battlefield and manages to connect the chains once again, as well as knocking Gaara down. As the beasts are dragged into the statue once more, [[B]] severs one of his tentacles, while Kurama asks Gaara for a favour. As Naruto is ejected from Tailed Beast Mode and is sent hurdling towards the ground, Gaara calls out to a shocked Naruto.
   
[[File:Naruto Alliance.png|thumb|left|The remainder of the Allied Shinobi Forces arrive.]]

[[File:Madara stabs Sasuke.png|thumb|left|Madara fatally stabs Sasuke.]]
However, when the Ten-Tails fires its Tailed Beast Ball at them, the shinobi are shocked to realise that the beast had missed. Just then, from above, [[Ino]], [[Hinata]], [[Hiashi]] and a few others arrive and it is revealed that Ino was able to shift the blast after taking [[Mind Body Switch Technique|control]] of Obito for a split second. Immediately, the [[Aburame]] use the [[Insect Jamming Technique]], and the [[Kirigakure]]-nin [[Hiding in Mist Technique|shroud]] the battlefield in mist to stop them from being sensed. Shortly after this, the entire [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] arrive at the battlefield, causing the [[Sensing System Technique]] bubble to distort, and Naruto announces that they were no longer a disorderly crowd before announcing a new technique The Ninja Alliance Technique, which is the strongest technique that ever existed in the shinobi world and that it could win against the Infinite Tsukuyomi.
+
As Naruto begins to fall to the ground, unconscious due to Kurama's extraction, Gaara uses his [[sand]] to cushion his comrade's fall. Meanwhile, Madara reseals all of the tailed beasts, including Gyūki and Kurama, back into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Paths. [[Tobirama]] suddenly [[Flying Thunder God Slash|attacks]] Madara and the two engage in a brief battle, with Madara gaining the upper hand. Madara pins down Tobirama with his chakra rods, as the two exchange harsh words. As Sasuke travels to the battlefield from atop [[Garuda]], he recalls how Hashirama wanted to give him a technique to stop Madara. Though initially hesitant, Sasuke accepted the offer when Hashirama noted that Sasuke reminded him of Madara's brother [[Izuna]]. Madara drives the stakes into Tobirama's head, taking deep pleasure in this as he states that this is penance for Tobirama's killing of Izuna. Sasuke appears over the two shinobi and jumps down towards them, ready to enter the fray. Tobirama tries to attack Madara to get an opening for Sasuke, however Madara foils the plan, suspending Sasuke in the air before he has an attempt to attack. Taking Sasuke's dropped sword, Madara stabs Sasuke through his chest, expressing his disappointment in the young Uchiha's actions.

[[File:Naruto & Sasuke on the verge of death.png|thumb|Naruto and Sasuke on the verge of death.]]
Despite the swell in numbers of their opponents, Madara and Obito note that their efforts were still futile and that even after this war, history would only repeat itself and they would end up in this very same predicament. Naruto chastises them both noting that when there was a difference of opinion in a group, the majority vote beats all. Accepting his premise, Obito simply notes that they would make their decision after exterminating the majority: The Alliance itself. Using this time [[Shikaku]], through [[Inoichi]]'s [[Yamanaka Clan Telepathy|telepathic]] ability, is able to relay the strategy he had formulated with the entire Alliance. With this, the Alliance launch their strategy, the first attempt to slow down their targets by blinding them which was executed by the [[Kumo]]-nin with [[C]] and a few others using the [[Lightning Illusion Flash of Lightning Pillar]] technique followed by [[Darui]] and other [[Storm Release]] bearers using the [[Storm Release: Laser Circus]] technique. Secondly the [[Suna]]-nin use the [[Wind Release: Air Current Wild Dance]] to manipulate the dust from the previous attack to obscure their opponent's vision once again, adding it to what remains of the [[Insect Jamming Technique]] and [[Hiding in Mist Technique]] from earlier to completely impair the opponents' [[sensor]]y skills. Following this, [[Kitsuchi]] and a group of [[Iwa]]-nin [[Earth Release: Moving Earth Core|sink]] the beast into a hole allowing [[Kurotsuchi|his daughter]] and other [[Lava Release]] bearers to cover the beast in [[Lava Release: Quicklime Congealing Technique|quicklime]] which was mixed with [[water]] by the Kiri-nin. Finishing off, members of the [[Konoha]] [[Sarutobi clan]] [[Fire Release: Great Flame Technique|hardened]] the mixture using [[Fire Release]]. This leads Madara to state how surprised he was that [[shinobi]] from different countries were able to pull off such a perfect combination. Shikaku informs them that they have to defeat Madara and Obito while the Ten-Tails was still restrained recommending the [[Logistical Support and Medical Division]] to coordinate with Naruto to exploit Obito's weakness and telling all shinobi who were skilled in [[taijutsu]] to deal with Madara.
+
Gaara rushes Naruto to help, while Tobirama curses Madara for stabbing Sasuke, which has left the young Uchiha severely injured. Meanwhile, [[Guruguru]] appears on the battlefield and uses [[Wood Release: Several Thousand Hands]] to attack the alliance. However, it is barely fended off by [[Hiruzen]], while [[Shikamaru]] notes that if Hiruzen falls, the alliance is doomed. While [[Orochimaru]] and [[Taka]] plan a surprise attack against the Guruguru, [[Karin]] senses Sasuke's current predicament and becomes frantic. Gaara arrives to [[Tsunade]], [[Shizune]] and [[Sakura]], and asks them to heal Naruto. [[Hinata]], realising that Naruto's heartbeats are getting weaker and weaker with her Byakugan, rushes to Naruto's aid but stumbles due to being low on chakra, praying for Neji to help Naruto. However, Sakura is the only one with enough chakra left to heal Naruto, though stated before that neither she, Tsunade or Shizune could perform medical ninjutsu any longer. Meanwhile, a struggling Sasuke refuses to die, promising to honour [[Itachi]]'s sacrifice by becoming Hokage and changing the ninja world for the better. Madara simply rebuffs his statement and walks away from the dying Uchiha. Due to healing the members of the alliance beforehand, Sakura rapidly begins to run out of chakra, and Karin notices how serious Sasuke's wound is. The two young women note that soon Naruto and Sasuke will die if they do not receive immediate attention.

=== The New Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki & The Crimson Beast Emerges===
As various shinobi as well as techniques bear down on the two Uchiha, Madara realises that they were being targeted this time. He notes, however, that in order to do that, the Alliance would have had to stop the Ten-Tails first. With this, a powerful blast sends the incoming shinobi flying away and the fully-matured Ten-Tails emerges from the pit. While the medical teams move out to tend to the injured, Shikaku, Inoichi, [[Ao]] and the others discuss what was happening on the battlefield. Now finding it even harder to control the beast, Obito and Madara use [[Hashirama]]'s cells in order to fortify their control over the beast as the former agrees with the legendary Uchiha that it was time they showed the Allied Shinobi Forces true despair. As the beast fires off a Tailed Beast Ball, Kitsuchi is able to deflect its course using [[Earth Release]] underfoot the beast. A second Tailed Beast Ball is launched which detonates in a nearby lake and a third which Hiashi notes, destroys an entire town in an instant. Initially believing that the towns where the civilians were, was now unsafe, the fourth Tailed Beast Ball which is launched is noted to be heading straight for HQ as Shikaku surmised. As Inoichi asks for directives, Shikaku tells him that the only thing they could do was what they were assigned to until the very end, and for what appears to be the final time, Inoichi patches Shikaku through to the entire Alliance as the genius [[Nara]] passes on his final strategy to defeat the enemy. Meanwhile, on the battlefield, Madara exclaims that they were finally able to get them with the Tailed Beast Ball, justifying the deaths of the Alliance's "''head''" was a simple war tactic.

As [[Kurama]]'s [[chakra]] vanishes from around her, [[Sakura]] notices that Naruto has lost his pulse and heartbeat. Confused as to why her [[Medical Ninjutsu|medical ninjutsu]] isn't working, [[Gaara]] explains that the Nine-Tails has been extracted from Naruto. He then explains Kurama's plan: to bring Naruto to [[Minato Namikaze|his father]], in order to place the [[Yin]]-half of Kurama within him, which would allow him to be saved. Realising Naruto may not make it, Sakura [[Chakra Scalpel|cuts]] open Naruto's side and begins personally pumping his heart, while preforming mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on him. Elsewhere, [[Tobirama]] notices that he can no longer sense Sasuke's chakra. Additionally, has lost complete movement, being even unable to use the [[Flying Thunder God Technique]]. Meanwhile, [[Karin]] commences an assault on [[Guruguru]], using [[Adamantine Sealing Chains]] to fight the immense wooden structure. Her attack allows [[Orochimaru]] the opening to bite Guruguru's neck, producing a curse seal that binds his movements. As their assault ends, and Karin heals by biting herself, she notes that she can no longer sense Sasuke. At this point, Madara summons the once-again-revived [[Ten-Tails]] and proceeds to [[Six Paths Ten-Tails Coffin Seal|seal]] it inside of him, becoming the new [[jinchūriki]]. He then launches himself in the direction of [[Obito]] in order to retrieve his missing [[Rinnegan]]. As Sasuke's situation seems hopeless, he is approached by an unknown barefooted individual.
   
Though [[Chōji]] tries to console him over his father's death, [[Shikamaru]] reminds him and Ino that they are in the middle of a war and must focus on carrying out Shikaku's final strategy. Only Naruto was unaware of Inoichi and Shikaku's deaths with the others' attempt to explain interrupted by the Ten-Tails resuming its attack. Leaping into action, [[Neji]] and Hiashi are able to [[Eight Trigrams Palms Revolving Heaven|deflect]] the beast's attack with everyone beginning to praise the [[Hyūga clan]]. Hiashi tells Naruto that he must focus in this fight while explaining to him that death is a possibility in war, adding that Shikaku and Inoichi were willingly to die for their children. Neji echoes his uncle's sentiments, referring to his own [[Hizashi Hyūga|father's sacrifice]], before he, Hiashi, and Hinata state their intent to protect Naruto to their last breath.

As Orochimaru's group presses forward towards Sasuke, both Karin and Tobirama note that they do not recognise either the person or their chakra signature. Believing that this person may intend to harm Sasuke, Karin races towards Sasuke's location. Meanwhile, [[Guy]], [[Rock Lee]], and [[Tenten]] begin making their way across the battlefield. However, they see Gaara, Sakura, and Naruto fly overhead towards [[Kakashi]]'s location, and decide to turn around and head there as well. As Madara [[Six Paths Flight|flies]] to the same destination, he spits out the [[Kohaku no Jōhei]] and [[Benihisago]], noting that they were weighing him down. The two weapons land on top of Guy and Lee's heads, while Tenten is shocked at the weapons' reappearance. At the other battlefield, Kakashi and [[Minato]] continue to battle [[Black Zetsu]], until the Kazekage's group arrive at the scene. Gaara explains what happened to Minato and urges him to give Naruto the other half of Kurama's chakra. As Minato begins the transference, Black Zetsu suddenly intercepts him and absorbs Yin-Kurama's chakra, becoming its jinchūriki. With no hope left, Madara arrives on the battlefield, chastising Black Zetsu for taking too long. Black Zetsu tells Madara that he has successfully taken half of the Nine-Tails' chakra and Madara tells him to give it to him immediately. Black Zetsu tries, but Obito regains control of himself. Minato, Kakashi and Gaara try to interfere, but are countered by Madara. Minato has his remaining arm cut off. Madara and Obito discuss Obito's identity, and Obito shoves his hand into Madara's chest, manifesting the same shakujō he wielded when he was the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki.
[[File:Neji takes the blow.png|thumb|Neji sacrifices himself to protect Naruto and Hinata.]]
 
Meanwhile atop the Ten-Tails, which is slowly resisting their control, Madara and Obito discuss how to proceed with their plan. However, as he is only an reanimated corpse and can not become the Ten-Tails' [[jinchūriki]], Madara needs Obito to [[Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique|sacrifice]] himself to become a living being once more. Taking advantage of his ancestor's dilemma, and wanting to put the Allied Shinobi Forces in further despair, Obito has the Ten-Tails attack again. As the attacks are being deflected by the Hyūga, Kitsuchi builds his chakra in preparation to use his [[Earth Release: Sandwich Technique|signature technique]]. With the beast's hand itself bearing down on the group, Hiashi uses the [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm]] to deflect it. The beast then uses a pin-point attack which Hiashi realises they could not deflect in time. As Hinata throws out her arms to protect Naruto, Neji actually intercepts the attack. Naruto calls for the medics, Neji notes that it was already too late and that he will die within minutes. As Hiashi looks on in horror and Hinata cries openly, Naruto questions why a genius from the Hyūga clan would throw away his life for him, and Neji, who notes that he finally understood his father's feelings, states that it was for that exact reason that he did it: because Naruto called him a genius and that he choose to die for those he cares for. With this, the [[Hyūga Main Family's Juinjutsu|Byakugan-sealing juinjutsu]] on Neji's forehead disappears, confirming his death. Taking delight in Naruto being shocked, Obito attempts to shatter Naruto's self-confidence and drag him in his way of thinking.
 
   
However, Hinata slaps Naruto out of it while telling him that if his life is connected with everyone who shared his beliefs and are willingly to sacrificed themselves for him, he should not give in to despair and have Neji die in vain. By that time, as Killer B manages to cripple the Ten-Tails by lodging his Tailed Beast Ball into its mouth as it is about to fire, Naruto thanks Hinata for staying by his side and takes her hand while entering Tailed Beast Mode. Infusing some of Kurama's chakra into Hinata's body, Naruto creates shadow clones to do the same with the rest of their allies.

Madara immediately attempts to obtain his left eye from Obito; however, the latter simply [[Kamui|phases]] through his former mentor. Locked in their subconscious, Obito attempts to extract the tailed beasts from Madara, however he only manages to extract fragments of Shukaku's and Gyūki's chakra. Returning to reality, Obito orders Kakashi to send Naruto to the [[Kamui's Dimension|other dimension]], which Kakashi does so without arguing. As Obito attempts to transport himself, Madara stops him by sending a [[Truth-Seeking Ball|mysterious orb]] in his direction. Reclaiming his footing next to Kakashi, Obito tells Madara to beware of the power that two [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] have to offer. As Madara launches two more orbs towards the two, Obito — with Kakashi's help — transports himself to the other dimension. After convincing Sakura of his changed nature, Obito begins the tailed beast transfer technique on Naruto. In the real world, Guy arrives just in the knick of time to save Kakashi from Madara's attack.

Empowered by Kurama's chakra with their attacks strengthen, the Allied shinobi fight back with Akimichi clan members restraining some of the Ten-Tails' tails. Remembering their fathers' final words, Ino takes over Obito's body to veer his attempted Wood Release technique off course before Shikamaru leds his Nara clan kinsmen in restraining the Ten-Tails. By that time, Team Guy make their way to the deceased Neji with [[Rock Lee]] mourning his friend's death. Despite Obito mocking Guy's words of comfort of keeping those in your heart as a curse, Kakashi and Naruto rebuff this notion, the latter telling Obito that ninja are meant to endure such pain and will keep Neji in his heart even if it becomes an actual curse. As Naruto infuses Lee with some its chakra, Kurama ponders his jinchūriki's ability to match his own chakra with that of the different [[shinobi]] and considered the youth to have surpassed his parents. Though Madara decides to help Obito in breaking the Nara clan's restrains, they are respectively severed from the Ten-Tails's tendrils by Lee and Naruto before the Uchiha are forced to the ground.

Orochimaru and Taka arrive at Sasuke's side, and are surprised to learn that the mysterious man was in fact [[Kabuto Yakushi]], who managed to break out of [[Izanami]] after finding his true self. Mentioning that he inherited [[Itachi]]'s will to protect Sasuke, Kabuto reveals that he has arrived on the battlefield to heal Sasuke's wounds and atone for his sins. Meanwhile, Kakashi thanks Guy for saving him from Madara's attack, and mentions that only [[senjutsu]] and [[taijutsu]] will be effective against the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki. As Minato mentions that his senjutsu is subpar, Guy opens the [[Eight Gates|seventh gate]], and attacks Madara with a series of punches. Keeping Madara at bay, Guy finished his assault with the [[Daytime Tiger]], which Madara managed to survive, as he plans on eliminating an exhausted Guy by launching a mysterious orb in his direction. Though Kakashi attempts to save Guy with Minato's [[Flying Thunder God Kunai|special kunai]] in order to [[Flying Thunder God: Guiding Thunder|warp away the black orb]], Rock Lee arrives just in the knick of time to save his sensei. As the group ponders on how to defeat Madara, Guy reveals that the only way to beat Madara is for him to open the eighth gate, which would result in his death, and evolve into the crimson beast.

While Kakashi, Minato, and Lee attempt to dissuade Guy from using the fatal technique, they abandon this fruitless endeavour once they realise Guy's commitment. As Lee begins shedding tears for his master, Guy tells him that it is no time for tears, as the noble shinobi rushes towards Madara once more, sticking his thumb into his chest, and opens the Eighth Gate of Death. As he begins transforming into a crimson beast, Guy reflects on his father [[Might Duy]]: a shinobi only talented in taijutsu like himself and his pupil, and who was once disgraced because of his faults. Remembering how Might Duy gave up his life after using the Eighth Gate in order to save him and his team-mates from the previous [[Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist]], Guy realises that his time has come to sacrifice himself for the safety of his comrades. As Madara berates Guy's abilities, he immediately attacks Madara with the [[Evening Elephant]].
Elsewhere in [[Konoha]], though sensing Naruto's chakra as it was being given, [[Sasuke]] instructs [[Suigetsu]] and [[Jūgo]] to press onwards with [[Orochimaru]] before they arrive to the [[Uzumaki Clan's Mask Storage Temple]]. Though it was actually a detour, Orochimaru took one of the masks with Suigetsu unnerved by Orochimaru's choosing. After Sasuke breaks away from the group to survey the village from a high point, he and his group arrive to their destination: the remains of the ruined [[Naka Shrine]]. There, Orochimaru dons the mask which invokes the [[Shinigami]] as it binds itself to him.

While explaining his actions, Orochimaru [[Dead Demon Consuming Seal: Release|slashes the Shinigami's stomach open]] to release the [[Dead Demon Consuming Seal|souls of those it had consumed]]. Though the act mortally wounded him, Orochimaru regained his hands so he can now use Impure World Reincarnation as he has Jūgo use his [[natural energy]] to activate the six Zetsu [[Spore Technique|spores]] Obito had planted on Sasuke to monitor him. With two held down by Jūgo and Suigetsu, before transferring his being into the latter's restrained White Zetsu, Orochimaru uses the remaining four as sacrifices to reincarnate the ones Sasuke needs his answers from: [[Hashirama Senju]], [[Tobirama Senju]], [[Hiruzen Sarutobi]], and [[Minato Namikaze]].
+
Guy wastes no time in attacking Madara with his new technique. He manages to land a blow of the legendary shinobi, and sends him plummeting into the ground, creating an extremely deep crater. While Guy laments from the pain that is caused from using the first attack, Madara notes that Guy has become extremely powerful, and decides it would be best to avoid being hit from the technique at all costs. As Guy and Madara prepare to clash again after Guy grows accustomed to the pain, Minato, Lee, Kakashi, and Gaara decide to aid Guy by disabling Madara's black orbs. As Lee opens the sixth gate, their plan succeeds, as they are able to [[Flying Thunder God Technique|warp]] away the black orbs, and [[Kamui|create an opening]] for Guy to use the five steps of the Evening Elephant. Though beaten severely, Madara notes that he had not had this much fun since his [[Valley of the End|battle]] with [[Hashirama]], greatly surprising Guy. Meanwhile in the other dimension, [[Naruto]] finally opens his eyes.
   
After the Senju brothers are formally introduced to Minato and learned of their blood relative Tsunade serving as the current Hokage, they and Hiruzen thinking it to be another attempt to destroying Konoha, Orochimaru clarifies his reasons for being them back to life. Shocked of Orochimaru's reason and that Sasuke know full story of the [[Uchiha clan massacre]], he reveals that everything the youth has learned up to this moment is true. Not surprised, Tobirama berates the Uchiha clan until Orochimaru points that his actions in life set them down that path by placing them in charge of the [[Konoha Military Police Force]] and separating them from the rest of Konoha. When Hashirama demanded why his brother did it, Tobirama explains that the Uchiha treasured love above all else and that through the despair of losing someone dear they gain the Sharingan and eventually evolve them. However, using Madara and the love he had for his brother as an example, Tobirama reveals that the same despair can also madden the user. He concludes that all had he done was an attempt to use the Uchiha's cursed heritage in a positive way and cannot be blamed their self destructive nature. Hearing enough, Sasuke turns his attention to Hashirama to ask him what the meaning behind the village and ninja is.

===The Return of the Two Saviours===
  +
[[File:Naruto Meets Hagoromo.png|thumb|left|Naruto meets Hagoromo inside his own mind.]]
  +
Waking up surrounded by a watery surface, Naruto questions if he has died. An unknown figure asks him what his definition of "death" is. Naruto asks who this person is, and the figure reveals himself to be none other than [[Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki]], the Sage of the Six Paths himself. Naruto recognises the name as he had previously heard it from [[Jiraiya]] and [[Nagato]], and states he is the one who created [[ninjutsu]], Hagoromo corrects him however by saying he did not create ninjutsu, but [[ninshū]], stating his creation was to inspire peace, while ninjutsu was made to create war. Following this revelation, Hagoromo begins telling him about his history, including his mother, brother, and how his two sons fought. Hagoromo reveals to Naruto that he is the reincarnation of his younger son [[Asura]].
   
After calming down Tobirama when the Second Hokage learns Sasuke's reason for hearing the First's answer to determine Konoha's fate, Hashirama explains the answer would be a long one. When he tells Hashirama to make it brief, Orochimaru reveals Madara's revival and plan. This surprises the Hokage, Hashirama lamenting about the war as he, Tobirama, and Minato [[Chakra Sensing Technique|sense]] it, though the Fourth Hokage is relieved that his son has gained control of the Nine-Tails. His former teacher demanding him to release them from his control so they can fight Madara, Orochimaru states that it depends on Sasuke's choice upon hearing Hashirama's answer: using the Hokage to destroy the village if the youth is not satisfied. Though Orochimaru has Hashirama's cells to keep the other Hokage under his control, as he displayed with a defiant Tobirama, Hashirama easily broke out of Orochimaru's control. Sitting down to answer Sasuke's question in the hopes the young Uchiha would not follow in Madara's footsteps, Hashirama begins his story first with the events that occurred in the [[Valley of the End]] before telling Sasuke how he and Madara first became rivals.
+
[[File:Hagoromo asks Naruto and Sasuke.png|thumb|Hagoromo simultaneously talks to Naruto and Sasuke.]]
  +
Naruto, however, is not surprised by this fact, and tells the Sage how he had felt something different in Sasuke during their meeting at [[Samurai Bridge]], and realises that [[Sasuke]] is the reincarnation of the Sage's older son [[Indra]]. Hagoromo goes on to tell Naruto more about his mother's past and about the previous reincarnations of the sons, [[Hashirama]] and [[Madara]]. He then summons all the Tailed Beasts chakra sealed inside Naruto and asks him how wants the fight against Madara to end, to which Naruto replies he is stupid and does not know much, but he knows what friends are, and he wants to protect them. It is then revealed that Hagoromo was talking to Sasuke at the same time as Naruto, stating they are the one's who will decide the future, and proceeds to pass on his power to both of them.
   
The flashback begins with Hashirama and Madara clashing once, before jumping back to their respective sides. Madara then uses [[Kurama]] and makes it form a [[Tailed Beast Ball]]. In response, the Hashirama first uses [[Wood Release: Wood Dragon Technique]] to restrain the Nine-Tails, while using [[Wood Release: Wood Human Technique]] to use the Tailed Beast Ball as a counter. Before the Ball could hit Madara, he materialises [[Susanoo]] and equips it to the beast. After releasing the [[Wood Release: Hōbi Technique|defence]] he created to protect himself from the backlash of the attack, and briefly admiring his rivals ability, the First Hokage then uses [[Wood Release: Hotei Technique]] to both counter Madara's [[Susanoo Sword]] and restrain the beast. However this fails as the Uchiha cuts at the technique itself, slicing through the peaks of some mountains in the process. In an attempt to cause as little collateral damage as possible, Hashirama lures the Uchiha to the coast. In response, Madara uses a Tailed Beast Ball in combination with Susanoo's sword and launches it at his opponent, which Hashirama responds by using [[Summoning: Quintuple Rashōmon]] to redirect the attack. The Hokage then pleads to Madara to stop this, with the Uchiha bluntly refusing, thus forcing the Senju to enter [[Sage Mode]] and use [[Sage Art: Wood Release: True Several Thousand Hands]].
+
[[File:Night guy.PNG|thumb|left|Guy lands his final, traumatic attack on Madara.]]
  +
Returning to the battlefield, as Guy prepares his technique, [[Night Guy]], Madara notices Guy's rapidly-decreasing chakra levels, and notes that this will be the legendary beast's final attack. Meanwhile, Naruto, with a light circle mark on his right hand, and Sasuke, with a dark crescent-moon mark on his left hand, finally awaken, and prepare to head to the battlefield with their respective surround groups of people. As Kakashi, Lee, and Gaara watch the gruesome battle continue, Kakashi recalls the first time he met Guy, and realises that Guy is no longer the the talentless loser he once was. As Guy finishes preparing his attack, he rushes towards Madara, as the latter notices that Guy is managing to distort space, resulting in his inability to counterattack. Guy lands a devastatingly powerful kick on Madara, which manages to decimate the complete left side of the Uchiha's upper body, and almost killing him. As Guy's body begins to deteriorate, Madara sends one final [[Truth-Seeking Ball|black orb]] to annihilate his enemy, Naruto arrives to the battlefield and kicks it back to him. Naruto manages to restore Guy's life force slowly, as he reveals his new mysterious eyes, commenting that he can change the world with his new power.

[[File:Naruto and Sasuke power up.png|thumb|Naruto and Sasuke confront Madara with their new powers.]]
As the two foes clash, we go further into the past to see a young Madara trying to skip a stone on water to make it reach the other side of the creek, and failing. Then a stranger joins in and succeeds on his first try, thus revealing Hashirama Senju's and Madara Uchiha's first meeting.
+
Madara is confused as to why Guy did not perish after using the Eighth Gate of Death, and questions what Naruto did to stop the shinobi's death. Without any time to react, Naruto leaps towards Madara, while the latter forms his [[Wikipedia:Khakkhara|shakujō]] from his remaining [[Truth-Seeking Ball]] to defend against Naruto's punch. As Madara ponders Naruto's new powers once again, Naruto mentally requests [[Son Gokū]]'s power. Naruto forms a [[senjutsu]]-enhanced, [[Lava Release|lava-natured]] [[Sage Art: Lava Release Rasenshuriken|Rasenshuriken]] with his new powers. As Naruto's is about to throw it, Madara leaps away, and casts [[Limbo: Border Jail]], but the young ninja somehow (unintentionally) dodged it. Naruto throws his new technique at Madara, making direct contact, and upon exploding, chops down the tree form of the Ten-Tails. Naruto then quickly gets Guy out of danger, and back to Rock Lee. As the tree collapses towards Madara, a "voice" tells him to absorb the tree. Following the advice Madara recovers, completely from his wounds and even altering his form slightly. Meanwhile, Sasuke has pulled out the stakes which pinned down [[Tobirama]], who wonders how the young Uchiha is capable of doing so without being affected, until he gets a good look at Sasuke's face and understands. Sasuke then asks Tobirama to [[Flying Thunder God Technique|teleport]] him to the main battlefield, which the Hokage agrees to but warns that, in his current condition, he'll only be able to transport one person. The Uchiha responds stating that it's fine, claiming that he'll be fine by himself. Back in the [[Kamui's Dimension|other dimension]], Sakura reluctantly thanks Obito for saving Naruto, while the half-dead man asks for a favour in return. After Gaara wishes Naruto good luck, the young Konoha shinobi ponders at how different he feels as he confronts Madara. The elder Uchiha then boasts about how he was immortal and can't be defeated to which Naruto responds that "together they" will defeat Madara, just as Sasuke appears. After Naruto transforms into a new [[Nine Tails Chakra Mode#Six Paths Enhancement|Tailed Beast Mode]], Madara realises that Sasuke possesses the Rinnegan, while the Uzumaki has the Senjutsu of the Six Paths while he himself has both of them. Responding to the two younger ninja's challenge, Madara announces this to be their final battle as he prepares to use a technique.
   
As Madara and Hashirama continue their conversation by the riverside, the banter between them is cut short when a body washes up near them. Moving to check the corpse out, Madara comes to realise that Hashirama is a [[shinobi]] as he [[Walk on Water Technique|stood atop the water]]. Upon further inspection of the body, Hashirama realises that it belonged to a member of the [[Hagoromo clan]] and he, and Madara decide to leave the riverbank. Heading back home, Hashirama is informed that [[Kawarama]] had been killed on the battlefield, and as they stood by the graves with his youngest brother [[Itama]] openly weeping, Hashirama questions his [[Butsuma Senju|father]] about the fact that innocent children were being sent on the battlefield to die. Affronted by this, Hashirama's father hits his son telling him that saying such things were an insult to Kawarama's memory who had died a proud shinobi on the battlefield. Unable to agree with this, Hashirama decries these actions further, but before his father can hit him again, Tobirama intervenes offering that Hashirama was grieving and pleaded for their father's forgiveness. Later, the three brothers spoke of bringing peace to the world. Some time later on the battlefield, Itama would lose his life after being confronted by five members of the [[Uchiha clan]]. Affected deeply by the loss of his brother, Hashirama went back to the riverbed when he met Madara again, who caught him crying. At first, Hashirama refuses to share the reason for his shedding tears, but he eventually explains that his little brother Itama, had died. When asked if he had any siblings, Madara answers he is one of five brothers, then correcting he was one of five brothers. After Madara finally manages to skip the rock to the other side, the two talk about the death of their relatives and Madara offers words of comfort about a better future.

[[File:Naruto&Sasuke_strike.png|thumb|left|Naruto and Sasuke simultaneously attack Madara.]]
  +
Madara begins his [[Sage Art: Yin Release Lightning Dispatch|counter-attack]], which Naruto blocks by throwing one of his staffs at it, while Sasuke seemingly [[Amenotejikara|teleports]] out of harm's way, shocking Madara. Naruto attacks Madara with his staff but is blocked by a seemingly invisible wall. Meanwhile, Sasuke notices an invisible clone of Madara in between Naruto and the real Madara with his Rinnegan, and so he throws his sword towards the clone, but the attack fails. Madara [[Sage Art: Storm Release Light Fang|dispatches]] Naruto and retreats. As Sasuke begins explaining Madara's technique, Madara soon realises that the two shinobi have found out how his [[Limbo: Border Jail]] technique works. Madara attempts to steal Sasuke's Rinnegan eye, but much to the surprise of the elder Uchiha, Sasuke switches place with his discarded sword from earlier and Madara is stabbed in the chest. Sasuke tells Naruto to use a technique with his [[senjutsu]] in order to bind Madara, while [[Shukaku]] offers his new host its own chakra, creating the [[Sage Art: Magnet Release Rasengan]]. Sasuke manifests a black version of his [[Chidori]], and though the two strike Madara simultaneously from both sides, the elder Uchiha uses his shadow version of himself as a substitute. Madara goes for Kakashi and manages to steal his [[Sharingan]], transplanting it into his own empty eye socket. Despite Sasuke [[Chidori Sharp Spear|slicing]] him in half, Madara uses [[Kamui]] to teleport to its [[Kamui's Dimension|dimension]], in order to stop [[Sakura]] and [[Obito]] from destroying his other Rinnegan.

[[File:Kakashi's original left eye.png|thumb|Kakashi's original left eye is restored.]]
Hashirama and Madara continued to meet in this manner by the riverside where there sparred with one another as well as talked about the future. During this time, the two grew closer as friends and worked on improving their weaknesses, all the while not revealing their last names. On one occasion, Madara almost let slip that he was an Uchiha, nearly bragging about the [[Sharingan|visual prowess]] which he wielded, as Hashirama feverishly talked about creating a village where the elders would watch over the children who would be brought up to be strong and not carelessly sent to war to die. Hashirama also spoke about creating a system by which shinobi were assigned missions which played to their strengths and skill sets, after both young men relived the loss of their siblings. Creating a greeting method the two boys skipped their rocks across the river to one another until they met again, however, upon returning to the [[Senju]] compound, Tobirama informs his brother that their father wanted to speak with him. Revealing that he had tailed them upon their father's request, Butsuma tells his son that the young boy he had been spending his time with was an Uchiha who had killed several of their strongest clansmen on his own. Coaxing his son, Butsuma told Hashirama that he was to gather intelligence on the young man and report to them, else he be seen as a traitor for his actions. Faced with the only other option to kill Madara, the pair met up by the river and, at Madara's behest, skipped their rocks across to one another as a greeting. Reacting, the two boys immediately bid each other farewell, having told one another that a trap had been laid for them. However, both Butsuma and [[Tajima Uchiha]] appear on the field accompanied by their sons Tobirama and [[Izuna]] respectively. Both Hashirama and Madara who were in the process of fleeing look on as the two sides greeted one another — no love lost between the pair.
+
Obito quickly transports Sakura back to the other dimension, where she informs everyone that Madara has entered the Kamui dimension, and intends on retrieving his left Rinnegan. While tending to Kakashi's eye, Sakura informs everyone that Madara will become unstoppable if he receives his other eye. In the Kamui dimension, Madara holds his hand in Obito's chest, and is shocked to discover that the [[Forbidden Individual Curse Tag]] on his heart had been removed. Obito reveals that Kakashi destroyed it in their earlier battle, and that enabled him to become the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki. Madara then reveals to Obito that he was the mastermind behind Rin's death, and had been manipulating Obito the entire time, much to the younger Uchiha's shock. Meanwhile, Naruto returns to Kakashi's side and restores his left eye using his power from Hagoromo, much to Sakura's shock. Kakashi reflects on how each of the three members has changed and matured since their first meeting. Kakashi asks Sasuke what his true motives are, and Sakura wonders as well, but Kakashi interrupts him before he can answer, stating that they need to remember their first lesson about team-work, as Madara returns to the battlefield.
   
[[File:Hashirama and madara clash.png|thumb|A young Hashirama and Madara start to do battle.]]

=== The Infinite Dream ===
Knowing full-well that their power was more or less evenly matched, in order to gain the upper-hand as the four of them clashed, Butsuma, and Tajima — again thinking along the same lines — decided to target Izuna, and Tobirama respectively, hoping to use the shock of a parent losing a child before their very eyes as a method to gain an advantage. However their attacks were stopped by Hashirama, and Madara who had turned in time to see, and prevent what was about to happen. Seeing the attack on his brother as an unforgivable act, Madara declared that they had reached an impasse, noting that their dreams would die there. Determined to fight Tajima enquired whether or not Madara was prepared to take them on, but Madara noted that Hashirama was stronger than he was, and the outcome would not be in their favour. As they prepared to depart, Madara noted that the next time they would see each other was on the battlefield as Uchiha, and Senju. Thus began the non-stop battling between the two, and soon, the two would inherit the leadership of their respective clans. During one such battle, Tobirama [[Flying Thunder God Slash|fatally]] wounded Izuna on the battlefield. Despite the fact that Hashirama once again attempted to broker peace between the two clans but, in refuse, Madara left the battlefield with his injured brother. In time, the fact that the Uchiha were inferior to the power of the Senju became abundantly clear and defectors began to come to the Senju side. The next time they met on the battlefield, Madara had acquired the [[Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan]] and noted that his brother had died from the wound Tobirama had inflicted on him. Despite his new-found power, Madara was still defeated, but Hashirama, still seeking peace halted Tobirama from killing the Uchiha and asked Madara if the two of them could not settle it like they used it. To this, Madara noted that they had lost his trust and the only way to regain this was Hashirama kill himself, or his brother.
+
[[File:Mugen Tsukuyomi.png|thumb|left|Madara activates the Infinite Tsukuyomi.]]
  +
Madara, who has recovered his left Rinnegan from Obito, mocks Team Kakashi's pledge to defeat him with team-work. Black Zetsu informs the group that Obito is no more, and he has completely taken possession over his body. Sakura sees an opening and activates her [[Ninja Art Creation Rebirth — Strength of a Hundred Technique]] to attack Madara, but to no avail, as Naruto and Sasuke quickly rescue her from Madara's wrath. Sasuke notes that Madara has created four more shadows and warns Naruto to beware. Madara goes on the offence and activates multiple [[Chibaku Tensei]], intending to drop the massive earthen debris on his opponents. Naruto creates several [[shadow clones]] to deal with Madara's shadows, while the real Naruto and Sasuke use [[Tailed Beast Ball Rasenshuriken]] and an improved [[Susanoo]] to counter Madara's technique. Madara uses this opportunity to fly closer to the moon, and he removes part of his forehead protector, revealing the third eye on his forehead that resembles the eye of [[Kaguya Ōtsutsuki]]. Turning towards it, Madara casts the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]] onto the moon.
   
While Tobirama and the other Senju present protested Madara's ludicrous proposal, Hashirama — having come to a decision — thanks Madara for being so sympathetic as to have given him two choices so that he did not have to kill his brother. Removing his [[Shinobi Battle Armour|armour]], Hashirama imparts his final words to his kinsmen, telling them to swear that Uchiha and Senju would not fight again. However, before the [[kunai]] land the fatal blow, Madara stops Hashirama, noting that seeing his resolve to go through with his request was enough. After this, Madara agreed to the treaty, and in the time to follow that the village was established. Meeting atop the same mountain the had met as children and seeing their dreams realised before them, Hashirama and Madara discussed the future, with Hashirama noting that he wanted to make Madara the [[Hokage]] so he could watch over the entire village and [[Hokage Monument|etch]] his face into the very rock they stood on. Madara would later coin the name of the village: Konohagakure which Hashirama noted lacked imagination. They were later joined by Tobirama who called away his brother for the meeting with the [[daimyō]] of the [[Land of Fire]], exchanging not a single word with Madara. Back in the village, Tobirama noted that they were no longer in the same time as their [[Butsuma Senju|father]] and that decisions such as who should be the head of the village were not to be done without democratic involvement. Tobirama also noted that Hashirama was more likely to become the village's leader, and as he broached the subject of the possible Uchiha threat, Hashirama cut across him telling him to stop thinking in that manner. Their conversation is cut short when Hashirama believes that they were being eavesdropped on. Not seeing anyone outside the window, and Tobirama not able to [[Sensor Type|confirm nor deny]] it, Hashirama finds the leaf Madara had mere moments before outside the window. Hashirama was eventually chosen as the Hokage, and during a meeting with Madara in the [[Naka Shrine]]'s secret room, Hashirama tried to plead with Madara, noting that in time people would come to understand him and as such, he would inherit the title from him. Madara noted, however, that in all likelihood, Tobirama would inherit that title, leaving no place for him, or even the Uchiha he feared, in the village. His resolve formed, Madara declared that he was leaving the village, and that this world was nothing more than mere entertainment, and that he looked forward to fighting with Hashirama as he went about realising his own dreams.

On the other battlefield, the members of the Allied Shinobi look at the moon in horror, realising that Madara's plan had finally been accomplished. [[Guruguru]], considering his job was complete, releases an encased [[Yamato]] from his body. While Naruto [[Multiple Tailed Beast Ball Rasenshuriken|destroys]] the remaining meteors from earlier, Sasuke rushes back to earth and covers his team-mates with his new Susanoo. Madara finally activates the genjutsu on the world, as light begins emanating from the moon and turns the night as bright as day. Around the world, all living souls fall victim to the Infinite Tsukuyomi, with the Rinnegan reflecting in their eyes. The only ones who are not affected by the technique are the [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] [[Hokage]], who watch in horror as Madara activates a [[God: Nativity of a World of Trees|technique]] that connects all life forms to the roots of the Ten-Tails' tree form, and [[Team 7]], with the help of Sasuke's Susanoo.
   
[[File:MadaraDies.jpg|thumb|left|Hashirama puts an end to their fight.]]
 
Confused about what Madara said, Hashirama questions his friend, asking if what they were building in the village wasn't his true dreams. Madara rebuffs Hashirama, noting that his dream had no connection to the village. Despite the fact that Madara abandoned Konohagakure, other nations praised the innovative system that had been created and soon began to imitate it upon seeing what two previously rival clans could create. As time passed, the village flourished greatly. However, this was punctuated with random attacks on the village by Madara. In what would become their ultimate battle on the edge of the [[Land of Fire]] and [[Land of Sound]], after the Susanoo clad by Kurama was shattered by [[Super Beast Emanation Buddha|a thousand punches]], the titanic battle waned down to the two men facing each other directly — [[sword]] and [[kama]] respectively. As Hashirama fell, Madara noted that unlike all the other times, he was the one left standing. As Hashirama tried to speak reason to his former comrade and as Madara constantly ridiculed the dream they once shared, Hashirama pierces Madara from behind with a sword, revealing that it was only a wood clone that fell and not Hashirama himself, declaring that he would protect his village believing it to be the best way to protect [[shinobi]] and that anyone that tried to destroy that would receive no forgiveness from him. As Madara fell, Hashirama resolved himself to endure in order to protect his dream while Madara, still resolute, declared that he would one day become darkness which will envelope the village. Back in present day, Hashirama tells those present on site that he did not know how Madara survived because he was sure he had killed him. He then goes on to tell them that it was for the sake of the village. After explaining what his vision for the village was, Hashirama goes on to explain that shinobi were people that endured to achieve their goals, but depending on what they chose as their goals, they could change who they were, like the way Madara and he had changed.

Latest revision as of 20:50, December 21, 2014

Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki (十尾の人柱力誕生, Jūbi no Jinchūriki Tanjō) is an arc from Part II of the series. This arc sees Obito Uchiha and Madara Uchiha becoming the jinchūriki of the Ten-Tails. It spans through volumes 67 to 70,[1] or more specifically, covers chapters 640 to 677 of the manga and from episodes 378 to 388 in the Naruto: Shippūden anime and later picks up on episode 391 onwards. This arc is preceded by the Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax and followed by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki Strikes.

Summary Edit

Obito, The Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki Edit

Obito Second Transformation

Obito's complete jinchūriki form.

Despite Minato's attempt to stop him, Obito goes after Naruto and proceeds to attack him and Sasuke. Luckily, Naruto uses his chakra arms on his father and Sasuke so the former can teleport them away. By that time, his body beginning to mutate as he attempted to attack, Obito is losing control as the Ten-Tails is asserting itself and destroying the human's mind. Though he instructs Naruto and Sasuke to follow his counter with a collaborative attack, his former student thinking of Rin and their team, Minato finds Obito had managed to regain control of his body and assume a form similar to the Sage of the Six Paths himself. Teleporting away after his arm got ripped off, Minato finds that Obito attached an orb made of mysterious substance onto him as it begins to expand. Luckily, a clone of Tobirama grabs the orb and destroys himself in an attempt to kill Obito. Elsewhere on the battlefield, deciding that the time of waiting is over, Madara battles Hashirama in an epic clash with the Allied Shinobi Forces in awe before Shikamaru uses Ino to contact their allies to not lose focus for a second.

Shuriken hits Obito

Naruto and Sasuke land an attack on Obito.

By that time, having used the substance to avoid being consumed in the explosion, an unscathed Obito deflects an impulsive Sasuke's Amaterasu before Naruto aids his friend so the two can made an opening for Minato and Tobirama. With the Second and Fourth Hokages preparing for an Instantaneous Swapping Flying Thunder God Technique before Tobirama appears behind Obito, Sasuke and Naruto rush forth with an Kagutsuchi-infused Rasenshuriken. Expecting to be attacked by the Second Hokage, Obito learns he fell for a trap as Minato suddenly has the Rasenshuriken and takes Tobirama's place to attack Obito from behind.

Naruto attacks Obito anime

Naruto figures out that senjustu attacks harm Obito.

The Konoha ninja's elation at landing a direct hit are quickly diminished, when Obito makes use of his new abilities to push aside the flames and heal himself. At this point, they realise that Minato's arm had not regenerated, and figured out that the Uchiha was using Yin-Yang Release, and thus be able to nullify the regeneration of Impure World Reincarnation, and making the reincarnated vulnerable to fatal attacks. In response to this, Naruto tries to enter Tailed Beast Mode in order to deliver an even more powerful attack, but fails completely, earning himself blank looks from both enemy and allies. After Kurama tells Naruto to hold off from using its chakra, Gamakichi fires a natural energy infused Starch Syrup Gun in a last ditch effort to help before disappearing. Obito easily blocks it, however both Tobirama and Naruto notice something amiss. As Minato questions why Obito has discarded his dream of becoming Hokage, Naruto uses this chance to enter Sage Mode. When the Uchiha explained his reasoning and insults the Hokage, Tobirama assists Naruto in delivering a Rasengan, proving that, while resistant to ninjutsu, Obito is vulnerable to senjutsu.

Minato and Naruto bump fists

Naruto, Minato and the two halves of Kurama join forces.

As Naruto passionately defends the title of Hokage and his father's legacy, Kurama's Yin half within Minato spurs Minato to action. After Naruto and Tobirama fall back, a recovered Obito decides to execute the Eye of the Moon Plan by first creating an enormous tree to wipe out the remainder of the Allied Shinobi Forces while boxing them in with a barrier to prevent them from escaping. To counter the turn of events, Naruto thinks up a risky plan before asking his father to bump fists with him, the act between father and son allowing Yang and Yin-Kurama to connect to each other as well.

The Will of the Shinobi Edit

Ten-Tails' Tree Form

Obito recreates the Ten-Tails into a tree in order to complete the Eye of the Moon Plan.

After telling Obito that he will not let the world end as long as he lives, Naruto dons his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode mantle with Minato following suit. Their combined efforts bolster the Version 1-like mantles around the shinobi thus allowing Minato to teleport the Alliance outside the barrier before the Tailed Beast Balls exploded. With this, the team presses onwards in their assault on Obito with the father-son duo going into Tailed Beast Mode and Naruto also using Sage Mode to bolster the attacks so that they would affect Obito. The Uchiha, however, was prepared for the assault this time and was able to deflect it. Before the Alliance can launch another attack, Obito decides to press on with the Eye of the Moon Plan as he manifests the Ten-Tails and has it transform into a tree that instinctively proceeds to suck the chakra out of any shinobi that it grabs. Madara reveals the tree to be the Ten-Tails in its tree form, while telling Hashirama of the monster's true origins along with the chakra within all ninja. Barely escaping the branches with Hiruzen's help as he is teleported to safety, Naruto looks around his friends and allies in anguish as Obito proclaims that their suffering will end once the tree form's flower, the crown piece in creating the Infinite Tsukuyomi, blooms.

Orochimaru arrives to the battlefield

Orochimaru and Taka arrive to the battlefield.

En route to the battlefield, the five Kage see the Ten-Tails' tree form and wonder what it was, which leads Tsunade to ask Katsuyu to explain what was happening. When Shikamaru is found to be one of the victims of the tree's attack, Sakura tries to have Katsuyu heal him remotely, but Katsuyu informs her that its clones also died due to having their chakra absorbed by the tree, leading the her and Sai to rush to their comrade's side instead. The Allied Shinobi Forces members spiral into deep despair, and taking advantage of their morale, Obito declares that he would not kill those who stopped resisting, but Hashirama's wood clone reminds them not to give up. Hiruzen's sentiments causes Orochimaru, who had just arrived with Suigetsu and Karin, to note that pessimism was very out of character for his sensei. As Madara and Hashirama continued to fight, the Uchiha reveals that even without the full chakra of the Eight and Nine-Tails, the tree would bloom in approximately fifteen minutes, during which Madara planned to take Obito's place using Hashirama's senjutsu abilities.

Sasuke cuts a part of Shinju

Sasuke shocks everyone with his will to continue fighting.

As the info is relayed to him, Hashirama's wood clone called out for a Yamanaka, and while startled, Ino responds to the First and patches him through to the Alliance. Connected, the clone passes on the recent revelation, and also tries to boost the shinobi's confidents, telling them to not give up. As the Ten-Tails' tree form moves again to attack, a large chunk of its root is cut off by a Susanoo created by Sasuke, who asks Naruto if he had already reached the limit of his capacity. Responding to his friends question, Naruto once again enters both Tailed Beast Mode and Sage Mode and through Ino's technique his feelings and memories are passed to everyone. Remembering his time as a child and the people he had lost along the way, Naruto notes that he did not want to have any more regrets, and that the sacrifices made would not be in vain.

Five Kage arrival

The five Kage arrive on the battlefield.

With new determination and a chakra boost from Yin-Kurama, Naruto charges forward into battle alongside Sasuke, who has Jūgo use the Sage Transformation on his Susanoo to imbue it with natural energy, creating the Cursed Seal of Heaven markings on Sasuke's Susanoo. Ready for action, the two shinobi plunge back into battle against Obito, who took note of how time and time again Naruto would pick himself up from the rut of despair. With this, Orochimaru reflects on how Sasuke seemingly had the potential to surpass even Madara Uchiha himself, while Tobirama notes that Naruto was in a lot of ways like his brother Hashirama: faults and all. With the shinobi still somewhat doubting themselves and contemplating waiting for directives from the current Kage, Hashirama shares with them all his memories of the first summit of the five Kage. How the meeting unfolded is revealed to all; what rings home for them all, is Hashirama's wish for all shinobi to be united. With this, Hashirama rallies the troops to amass their worries, their resolve, their sorrows and strength in order to fight. Ultimately, Hashirama's wish for the future is answered by the appearance of the five current Kage to the battlefield, all standing as a united front.

Kurama Mode and Susanoo

Naruto and Sasuke combine Tailed Beast Mode with Susanoo.

The five Kage disperse across the battlefield in order to strengthen the wills of the shinobi from their respective villages. Sakura is still attempting to heal Shikamaru, who is slowly slipping away due to an astounding loss of chakra. However, Naruto's Version 1 chakra reemerges and begins to give Shikamaru some strength, which Ino later notes that Naruto did subconsciously. Tsunade arrives to their location and easily heals Shikamaru back to full health, while also commending Sakura for her recent achievements. While a reformed Allied Shinobi Alliance, led by their respective Kage, begin attacking the tree, Naruto and Sasuke are still engaging Obito. Meanwhile, Kakashi is healing himself in the other dimension, while also pondering Obito's true feelings and his buried Will of Fire deep within him. Just as Naruto and Sasuke believe they have found an opening, Obito deflects their attacks and manages to force Naruto out of his senjustu-enhanced Tailed Beast Mode and Sasuke out of his Susanoo. As Obito asks Naruto why he would want to save a world that would ultimately only hurt him in the long run, Naruto replies that he would never go back on his word because it is his nindō. Naruto and Sasuke agree to put an end to the battle once and for all as Sasuke's Susanoo encases Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode.

Obito's Last StandEdit

Susanoo K11

Sasuke and the Konoha 11 (excluding Neji and with Sai in Sakura's place) engage Obito.

With Kurama now in Susanoo armour, Naruto and Sasuke prepare to attack Obito once more. Realising their strength, Obito manifests a gigantic Yin-Yang shield and the Sage of Six Path's legendary Sword of Nunoboko to counter them. As the two young shinobi rush in, Naruto creates nine Rasengan within the tails of his Susanoo-enhanced Tailed Beast Mode. Naruto then uses Ino's Mind Body Transmission Technique to contact the Konoha 11, excluding Neji (who died), Sakura, and Sai to enter the fray. As they join the battle, the Tailed Beast Mode mantles envelope them and Naruto instructs them to use the Rasengan to break Obito's shield. After the Konoha 11 and Sai destroy the shield, Sasuke's Susanoo Sword breaks the Sword of Nunoboko and manages to slice through Obito. From there, Naruto proceeds to siphon out the other tailed beasts while Gaara attempts to reclaim Shukaku and Killer B retrieves the fragment of Gyūki. Knowing that the tree would become a lifeless husk again if he allows the jinchūriki to succeed, Obito wrestles with them for the chakra. However, the rest of Allied Shinobi Forces and Sasuke's allies join in helping Naruto in grabbing hold of the chakra through Minato's Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.

Biju released

The tailed beasts extracted from the Ten-Tails.

Within his subconscious, having begun to imagine what his life would have been if he returned to the village instead of Madara after Rin's death, Obito sees himself alone against the entire Alliance as he begins to contemplate and grapples to come to terms with what he starts to view to be regret. However, using their link to reach him, an empathic Naruto tells Obito that despite his declaration of being no one, he was in fact someone with dreams. Telling Obito he was and still is Obito Uchiha, Naruto vows to destroy the metaphysical mask he created for himself. Even despite attempting to strangle the youth, insisting he regrets nothing in the choices he made, Obito struggles with his inner turmoil when Naruto pointed out that Rin could never accept the man he is now. As Naruto grabs Obito's hand, the Allied Shinobi Forces succeed in freeing the tailed beasts.

Minato stops Kakashi

Minato stops Kakashi from killing Obito.

Utterly defeated, gazing at the moon while lamenting that he could never fill the void in his heart, Obito did not notice Sasuke running at him with intend to cut down. However, as the Alliance were about to join in before Tsunade tells them to stand down, Kakashi manages to return from the other dimension. Stopping Sasuke, Kakashi informs his former student that killing Obito is his burden to bear, yet is stopped by Minato. From there, the three members of Team Minato speak of their ordeals and what they each became since Rin's death. Kakashi then tells a doubtful Obito that Naruto would not ended up like him because he had many friends to him along the way. By that time, after the freed tailed beasts thanked him for freeing them from the Ten-Tails's body, Naruto focuses his attention away from Obito to find Madara with the intention of stopping the Uchiha for good.

Madara Revived

Madara is revived by Obito through the Outer Path — Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique.

A defeated Obito watches as Naruto attacks an immobilised Madara from atop the tree, that Hashirama managed to subdue besides being pinned down himself. The Allied Shinobi Forces notices the direction of Naruto's attack and begin rushing to the location. Shukaku agrees to assist Gaara with stopping Madara, with the other tailed beasts following suit. Sai flies to the top of the tree to collect Naruto while Madara recovers from Naruto's attack. Meanwhile, Obito, who is incapacitated due to the extraction of the tailed beasts, resolves to using the Outer Path — Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique to revive those who have been killed during the war, stating that he finally understands Nagato's actions. Before he could do so, however, Black Zetsu emerges and takes over his body, forcing him use the same technique to revive Madara instead. Much to the shock of Naruto and the others, and his own satisfaction, Madara is revived in the flesh.

Revival of Madara Uchiha Edit

Madara vs. Sasuke

Sasuke and Madara clash.

As Madara's eyes crumble, having bestowed them to Nagato prior to his death, he is suddenly struck ablaze by Amaterasu, courtesy of Sasuke. The legend is unfazed though, and simply absorbed the technique. As his armour falls away, Madara reminds Hashirama about the conversation they had under the Naka Shrine, stating that he believes the unity stated refers to the combination of both Uchiha and Senju, revealing the face of Hashirama on his chest. Stating that the face was due to Kabuto, Madara quickly bypasses Naruto and Sai, so as to grab onto his old enemy and drain him of his senjutsu chakra, turning the face on his chest into Sage Mode. Sasuke then goes on the attack, intent on killing Madara now that he has been fully revived, however the older Uchiha manages to grab the younger's blade, planning on taking Sasuke's eyes until he gets his original back.

Madara targets Tailed Beasts

Madara prepares to capture the tailed beasts.

Meanwhile, Obito, Kakashi and Minato learn about Madara's revival. Just as Black Zetsu attempts to take the Rinnegan, the former Hokage and his pupil simultaneously attempt to attack the creature, who quickly attaches itself to Obito before they reach it. Explaining that he is Madara's will, it recalls how it escaped. Though Chōjūrō managed to pin the upper half down, after bisecting Black Zetsu, the lower half was also sentient and escaped to help his master later. Back with Madara, the Uchiha attempts to persuade Sasuke into joining his side, but the younger adamantly refuses. Both Sai and Naruto attempt to attack Madara in a pincer attack, but he manages to push both back while escaping Sasuke's blade. As he instantly starts healing, Madara then turns his attention to the incoming tailed beasts. Seeing that they were between the beasts and Madara, the Allied Shinobi Forces quickly get out of the way, with Killer B and Gyūki's help.

Tailed Beasts vs Madara

The tailed beasts simultaneously attack Madara.

Gaara, together with Shukaku, launch a mass of sand projectiles at Madara. Gaara then manipulates the sand in the Uchiha's blood to temporarily immobilise him as he is ricocheted between Matatabi, Isobu, Son Gokū, Kokuō and Chōmei, before landing in a sticky field courtesy of Saiken. Gaara and Shukaku then act quickly, attempting to seal the Uchiha before he could recover. Though they manage to do so, Madara still manages to break out using Susanoo, but is quickly knocked back down by Naruto and Kurama. They are then joined by B and Gyūki, and together, the beasts use their tails to rain down a barrage of hits, stripping away the Susanoo to get to the man within. Though the attack costs Madara his right arm, he manages to escape. A White Zetsu then emerges from the ground which carried Madara's Rinnegan. Taking the eye and the clone's right arm he attaches both, claiming that now the real "fun" begins.

Madara regains his Rinnegan

Madara regains one of his Rinnegan.

Though temporarily overjoyed at being alive, and able to "feel the fight", Madara quickly returns his attention to the battle. As the Uchiha prepares a summoning, Kurama shudders as he recalls how Madara had used to summon it, which receives a chastening from Shukaku, who in return gets a warning about the "mere" human. As the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path is summoned, the object in question suddenly emerges from Obito. Kakashi attempts to warp it away, but only manages to take an arm. As the tailed beasts wonder at how Madara is capable of summoning the statue, Naruto quickly manages to figure it out himself. Back with Obito, Black Zetsu again attempts to take the Rinnegan from its weakened host, but through pure will power, Obito manages to prevent it. When Zetsu states that the Rinnegan is to return to Madara, Obito claims that he has hidden the right eye and Kakashi will crush the left. However, Black Zetsu mocks his host's ignorance, stating that White Zetsu has already found and returned the right eye, and Obito would be dead if it wasn't attached to him. It goes on to say that the only reason that it still attached to the dying man, is because he knows that Kakashi and Minato would have already killed it otherwise. Madara soon recovers from the damage he received earlier, claiming to White Zetsu that he has gotten careless considering he now possesses Hashirama's recovery power. He then resolves to be more careful, and will instead use the Rinnegan's ability to the fullest. Madara then uses Limbo: Border Jail, and while at first it doesn't seem to do anything, one by one, each of the beasts are blown back. He then launches chains from the statue, which attach to, and starts pulling the tailed beasts towards it. Madara declares he will extract the Eight and Nine-Tails from their jinchūriki.

The Fall of Two Shinobi Edit

Naruto's reaction

Naruto reacts to Kurama's extraction.

Naruto tries to exit Tailed Beast Mode, but finds it futile, as Madara has Kurama's chakra trapped with the chains. The clone of White Zetsu informs Madara that it would be best to recapture the beasts in numerical order, starting with Shukaku. Madara, with a readjusted strategy, attempts to capture Shukaku with the chains first, however Gaara manages to stop this transaction with two enormous sand hands. Shukaku, shocked at Gaara's actions, remembers the words of his previous jinchūriki, realising that the time has come where humans and Tailed Beasts can be comrades. Madara quickly equips his Susanoo and hurls one of his swords at Gaara, though Shukaku intercepts it. Madara sends another sword across the battlefield and manages to connect the chains once again, as well as knocking Gaara down. As the beasts are dragged into the statue once more, B severs one of his tentacles, while Kurama asks Gaara for a favour. As Naruto is ejected from Tailed Beast Mode and is sent hurdling towards the ground, Gaara calls out to a shocked Naruto.

Madara stabs Sasuke

Madara fatally stabs Sasuke.

As Naruto begins to fall to the ground, unconscious due to Kurama's extraction, Gaara uses his sand to cushion his comrade's fall. Meanwhile, Madara reseals all of the tailed beasts, including Gyūki and Kurama, back into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Paths. Tobirama suddenly attacks Madara and the two engage in a brief battle, with Madara gaining the upper hand. Madara pins down Tobirama with his chakra rods, as the two exchange harsh words. As Sasuke travels to the battlefield from atop Garuda, he recalls how Hashirama wanted to give him a technique to stop Madara. Though initially hesitant, Sasuke accepted the offer when Hashirama noted that Sasuke reminded him of Madara's brother Izuna. Madara drives the stakes into Tobirama's head, taking deep pleasure in this as he states that this is penance for Tobirama's killing of Izuna. Sasuke appears over the two shinobi and jumps down towards them, ready to enter the fray. Tobirama tries to attack Madara to get an opening for Sasuke, however Madara foils the plan, suspending Sasuke in the air before he has an attempt to attack. Taking Sasuke's dropped sword, Madara stabs Sasuke through his chest, expressing his disappointment in the young Uchiha's actions.

Naruto & Sasuke on the verge of death

Naruto and Sasuke on the verge of death.

Gaara rushes Naruto to help, while Tobirama curses Madara for stabbing Sasuke, which has left the young Uchiha severely injured. Meanwhile, Guruguru appears on the battlefield and uses Wood Release: Several Thousand Hands to attack the alliance. However, it is barely fended off by Hiruzen, while Shikamaru notes that if Hiruzen falls, the alliance is doomed. While Orochimaru and Taka plan a surprise attack against the Guruguru, Karin senses Sasuke's current predicament and becomes frantic. Gaara arrives to Tsunade, Shizune and Sakura, and asks them to heal Naruto. Hinata, realising that Naruto's heartbeats are getting weaker and weaker with her Byakugan, rushes to Naruto's aid but stumbles due to being low on chakra, praying for Neji to help Naruto. However, Sakura is the only one with enough chakra left to heal Naruto, though stated before that neither she, Tsunade or Shizune could perform medical ninjutsu any longer. Meanwhile, a struggling Sasuke refuses to die, promising to honour Itachi's sacrifice by becoming Hokage and changing the ninja world for the better. Madara simply rebuffs his statement and walks away from the dying Uchiha. Due to healing the members of the alliance beforehand, Sakura rapidly begins to run out of chakra, and Karin notices how serious Sasuke's wound is. The two young women note that soon Naruto and Sasuke will die if they do not receive immediate attention.

The New Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki & The Crimson Beast EmergesEdit

Madara Jinchuriki

Madara becomes the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki.

As Kurama's chakra vanishes from around her, Sakura notices that Naruto has lost his pulse and heartbeat. Confused as to why her medical ninjutsu isn't working, Gaara explains that the Nine-Tails has been extracted from Naruto. He then explains Kurama's plan: to bring Naruto to his father, in order to place the Yin-half of Kurama within him, which would allow him to be saved. Realising Naruto may not make it, Sakura cuts open Naruto's side and begins personally pumping his heart, while preforming mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on him. Elsewhere, Tobirama notices that he can no longer sense Sasuke's chakra. Additionally, has lost complete movement, being even unable to use the Flying Thunder God Technique. Meanwhile, Karin commences an assault on Guruguru, using Adamantine Sealing Chains to fight the immense wooden structure. Her attack allows Orochimaru the opening to bite Guruguru's neck, producing a curse seal that binds his movements. As their assault ends, and Karin heals by biting herself, she notes that she can no longer sense Sasuke. At this point, Madara summons the once-again-revived Ten-Tails and proceeds to seal it inside of him, becoming the new jinchūriki. He then launches himself in the direction of Obito in order to retrieve his missing Rinnegan. As Sasuke's situation seems hopeless, he is approached by an unknown barefooted individual.

Black Zetsu absorb Kurama

Black Zetsu becomes Yin Kurama's jinchūriki.

As Orochimaru's group presses forward towards Sasuke, both Karin and Tobirama note that they do not recognise either the person or their chakra signature. Believing that this person may intend to harm Sasuke, Karin races towards Sasuke's location. Meanwhile, Guy, Rock Lee, and Tenten begin making their way across the battlefield. However, they see Gaara, Sakura, and Naruto fly overhead towards Kakashi's location, and decide to turn around and head there as well. As Madara flies to the same destination, he spits out the Kohaku no Jōhei and Benihisago, noting that they were weighing him down. The two weapons land on top of Guy and Lee's heads, while Tenten is shocked at the weapons' reappearance. At the other battlefield, Kakashi and Minato continue to battle Black Zetsu, until the Kazekage's group arrive at the scene. Gaara explains what happened to Minato and urges him to give Naruto the other half of Kurama's chakra. As Minato begins the transference, Black Zetsu suddenly intercepts him and absorbs Yin-Kurama's chakra, becoming its jinchūriki. With no hope left, Madara arrives on the battlefield, chastising Black Zetsu for taking too long. Black Zetsu tells Madara that he has successfully taken half of the Nine-Tails' chakra and Madara tells him to give it to him immediately. Black Zetsu tries, but Obito regains control of himself. Minato, Kakashi and Gaara try to interfere, but are countered by Madara. Minato has his remaining arm cut off. Madara and Obito discuss Obito's identity, and Obito shoves his hand into Madara's chest, manifesting the same shakujō he wielded when he was the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki.

Obito and Kakashi join forces

Kakashi and Obito join forces for the first time in decades.

Madara immediately attempts to obtain his left eye from Obito; however, the latter simply phases through his former mentor. Locked in their subconscious, Obito attempts to extract the tailed beasts from Madara, however he only manages to extract fragments of Shukaku's and Gyūki's chakra. Returning to reality, Obito orders Kakashi to send Naruto to the other dimension, which Kakashi does so without arguing. As Obito attempts to transport himself, Madara stops him by sending a mysterious orb in his direction. Reclaiming his footing next to Kakashi, Obito tells Madara to beware of the power that two Mangekyō Sharingan have to offer. As Madara launches two more orbs towards the two, Obito — with Kakashi's help — transports himself to the other dimension. After convincing Sakura of his changed nature, Obito begins the tailed beast transfer technique on Naruto. In the real world, Guy arrives just in the knick of time to save Kakashi from Madara's attack.

Kabuto saves Sasuke

Kabuto attempts to save Sasuke's life.

Orochimaru and Taka arrive at Sasuke's side, and are surprised to learn that the mysterious man was in fact Kabuto Yakushi, who managed to break out of Izanami after finding his true self. Mentioning that he inherited Itachi's will to protect Sasuke, Kabuto reveals that he has arrived on the battlefield to heal Sasuke's wounds and atone for his sins. Meanwhile, Kakashi thanks Guy for saving him from Madara's attack, and mentions that only senjutsu and taijutsu will be effective against the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki. As Minato mentions that his senjutsu is subpar, Guy opens the seventh gate, and attacks Madara with a series of punches. Keeping Madara at bay, Guy finished his assault with the Daytime Tiger, which Madara managed to survive, as he plans on eliminating an exhausted Guy by launching a mysterious orb in his direction. Though Kakashi attempts to save Guy with Minato's special kunai in order to warp away the black orb, Rock Lee arrives just in the knick of time to save his sensei. As the group ponders on how to defeat Madara, Guy reveals that the only way to beat Madara is for him to open the eighth gate, which would result in his death, and evolve into the crimson beast.

Gai's Eighth Gate

Guy opens the Eighth Gate of Death.

While Kakashi, Minato, and Lee attempt to dissuade Guy from using the fatal technique, they abandon this fruitless endeavour once they realise Guy's commitment. As Lee begins shedding tears for his master, Guy tells him that it is no time for tears, as the noble shinobi rushes towards Madara once more, sticking his thumb into his chest, and opens the Eighth Gate of Death. As he begins transforming into a crimson beast, Guy reflects on his father Might Duy: a shinobi only talented in taijutsu like himself and his pupil, and who was once disgraced because of his faults. Remembering how Might Duy gave up his life after using the Eighth Gate in order to save him and his team-mates from the previous Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, Guy realises that his time has come to sacrifice himself for the safety of his comrades. As Madara berates Guy's abilities, he immediately attacks Madara with the Evening Elephant.

Guy hits Madara

Guy lands a devastating attack on Madara.

Guy wastes no time in attacking Madara with his new technique. He manages to land a blow of the legendary shinobi, and sends him plummeting into the ground, creating an extremely deep crater. While Guy laments from the pain that is caused from using the first attack, Madara notes that Guy has become extremely powerful, and decides it would be best to avoid being hit from the technique at all costs. As Guy and Madara prepare to clash again after Guy grows accustomed to the pain, Minato, Lee, Kakashi, and Gaara decide to aid Guy by disabling Madara's black orbs. As Lee opens the sixth gate, their plan succeeds, as they are able to warp away the black orbs, and create an opening for Guy to use the five steps of the Evening Elephant. Though beaten severely, Madara notes that he had not had this much fun since his battle with Hashirama, greatly surprising Guy. Meanwhile in the other dimension, Naruto finally opens his eyes.

The Return of the Two SavioursEdit

Naruto Meets Hagoromo

Naruto meets Hagoromo inside his own mind.

Waking up surrounded by a watery surface, Naruto questions if he has died. An unknown figure asks him what his definition of "death" is. Naruto asks who this person is, and the figure reveals himself to be none other than Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, the Sage of the Six Paths himself. Naruto recognises the name as he had previously heard it from Jiraiya and Nagato, and states he is the one who created ninjutsu, Hagoromo corrects him however by saying he did not create ninjutsu, but ninshū, stating his creation was to inspire peace, while ninjutsu was made to create war. Following this revelation, Hagoromo begins telling him about his history, including his mother, brother, and how his two sons fought. Hagoromo reveals to Naruto that he is the reincarnation of his younger son Asura.

Hagoromo asks Naruto and Sasuke

Hagoromo simultaneously talks to Naruto and Sasuke.

Naruto, however, is not surprised by this fact, and tells the Sage how he had felt something different in Sasuke during their meeting at Samurai Bridge, and realises that Sasuke is the reincarnation of the Sage's older son Indra. Hagoromo goes on to tell Naruto more about his mother's past and about the previous reincarnations of the sons, Hashirama and Madara. He then summons all the Tailed Beasts chakra sealed inside Naruto and asks him how wants the fight against Madara to end, to which Naruto replies he is stupid and does not know much, but he knows what friends are, and he wants to protect them. It is then revealed that Hagoromo was talking to Sasuke at the same time as Naruto, stating they are the one's who will decide the future, and proceeds to pass on his power to both of them.

Night guy

Guy lands his final, traumatic attack on Madara.

Returning to the battlefield, as Guy prepares his technique, Night Guy, Madara notices Guy's rapidly-decreasing chakra levels, and notes that this will be the legendary beast's final attack. Meanwhile, Naruto, with a light circle mark on his right hand, and Sasuke, with a dark crescent-moon mark on his left hand, finally awaken, and prepare to head to the battlefield with their respective surround groups of people. As Kakashi, Lee, and Gaara watch the gruesome battle continue, Kakashi recalls the first time he met Guy, and realises that Guy is no longer the the talentless loser he once was. As Guy finishes preparing his attack, he rushes towards Madara, as the latter notices that Guy is managing to distort space, resulting in his inability to counterattack. Guy lands a devastatingly powerful kick on Madara, which manages to decimate the complete left side of the Uchiha's upper body, and almost killing him. As Guy's body begins to deteriorate, Madara sends one final black orb to annihilate his enemy, Naruto arrives to the battlefield and kicks it back to him. Naruto manages to restore Guy's life force slowly, as he reveals his new mysterious eyes, commenting that he can change the world with his new power.

Naruto and Sasuke power up

Naruto and Sasuke confront Madara with their new powers.

Madara is confused as to why Guy did not perish after using the Eighth Gate of Death, and questions what Naruto did to stop the shinobi's death. Without any time to react, Naruto leaps towards Madara, while the latter forms his shakujō from his remaining Truth-Seeking Ball to defend against Naruto's punch. As Madara ponders Naruto's new powers once again, Naruto mentally requests Son Gokū's power. Naruto forms a senjutsu-enhanced, lava-natured Rasenshuriken with his new powers. As Naruto's is about to throw it, Madara leaps away, and casts Limbo: Border Jail, but the young ninja somehow (unintentionally) dodged it. Naruto throws his new technique at Madara, making direct contact, and upon exploding, chops down the tree form of the Ten-Tails. Naruto then quickly gets Guy out of danger, and back to Rock Lee. As the tree collapses towards Madara, a "voice" tells him to absorb the tree. Following the advice Madara recovers, completely from his wounds and even altering his form slightly. Meanwhile, Sasuke has pulled out the stakes which pinned down Tobirama, who wonders how the young Uchiha is capable of doing so without being affected, until he gets a good look at Sasuke's face and understands. Sasuke then asks Tobirama to teleport him to the main battlefield, which the Hokage agrees to but warns that, in his current condition, he'll only be able to transport one person. The Uchiha responds stating that it's fine, claiming that he'll be fine by himself. Back in the other dimension, Sakura reluctantly thanks Obito for saving Naruto, while the half-dead man asks for a favour in return. After Gaara wishes Naruto good luck, the young Konoha shinobi ponders at how different he feels as he confronts Madara. The elder Uchiha then boasts about how he was immortal and can't be defeated to which Naruto responds that "together they" will defeat Madara, just as Sasuke appears. After Naruto transforms into a new Tailed Beast Mode, Madara realises that Sasuke possesses the Rinnegan, while the Uzumaki has the Senjutsu of the Six Paths while he himself has both of them. Responding to the two younger ninja's challenge, Madara announces this to be their final battle as he prepares to use a technique.

Naruto&Sasuke strike

Naruto and Sasuke simultaneously attack Madara.

Madara begins his counter-attack, which Naruto blocks by throwing one of his staffs at it, while Sasuke seemingly teleports out of harm's way, shocking Madara. Naruto attacks Madara with his staff but is blocked by a seemingly invisible wall. Meanwhile, Sasuke notices an invisible clone of Madara in between Naruto and the real Madara with his Rinnegan, and so he throws his sword towards the clone, but the attack fails. Madara dispatches Naruto and retreats. As Sasuke begins explaining Madara's technique, Madara soon realises that the two shinobi have found out how his Limbo: Border Jail technique works. Madara attempts to steal Sasuke's Rinnegan eye, but much to the surprise of the elder Uchiha, Sasuke switches place with his discarded sword from earlier and Madara is stabbed in the chest. Sasuke tells Naruto to use a technique with his senjutsu in order to bind Madara, while Shukaku offers his new host its own chakra, creating the Sage Art: Magnet Release Rasengan. Sasuke manifests a black version of his Chidori, and though the two strike Madara simultaneously from both sides, the elder Uchiha uses his shadow version of himself as a substitute. Madara goes for Kakashi and manages to steal his Sharingan, transplanting it into his own empty eye socket. Despite Sasuke slicing him in half, Madara uses Kamui to teleport to its dimension, in order to stop Sakura and Obito from destroying his other Rinnegan.

Kakashi's original left eye

Kakashi's original left eye is restored.

Obito quickly transports Sakura back to the other dimension, where she informs everyone that Madara has entered the Kamui dimension, and intends on retrieving his left Rinnegan. While tending to Kakashi's eye, Sakura informs everyone that Madara will become unstoppable if he receives his other eye. In the Kamui dimension, Madara holds his hand in Obito's chest, and is shocked to discover that the Forbidden Individual Curse Tag on his heart had been removed. Obito reveals that Kakashi destroyed it in their earlier battle, and that enabled him to become the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki. Madara then reveals to Obito that he was the mastermind behind Rin's death, and had been manipulating Obito the entire time, much to the younger Uchiha's shock. Meanwhile, Naruto returns to Kakashi's side and restores his left eye using his power from Hagoromo, much to Sakura's shock. Kakashi reflects on how each of the three members has changed and matured since their first meeting. Kakashi asks Sasuke what his true motives are, and Sakura wonders as well, but Kakashi interrupts him before he can answer, stating that they need to remember their first lesson about team-work, as Madara returns to the battlefield.

The Infinite Dream Edit

Mugen Tsukuyomi

Madara activates the Infinite Tsukuyomi.

Madara, who has recovered his left Rinnegan from Obito, mocks Team Kakashi's pledge to defeat him with team-work. Black Zetsu informs the group that Obito is no more, and he has completely taken possession over his body. Sakura sees an opening and activates her Ninja Art Creation Rebirth — Strength of a Hundred Technique to attack Madara, but to no avail, as Naruto and Sasuke quickly rescue her from Madara's wrath. Sasuke notes that Madara has created four more shadows and warns Naruto to beware. Madara goes on the offence and activates multiple Chibaku Tensei, intending to drop the massive earthen debris on his opponents. Naruto creates several shadow clones to deal with Madara's shadows, while the real Naruto and Sasuke use Tailed Beast Ball Rasenshuriken and an improved Susanoo to counter Madara's technique. Madara uses this opportunity to fly closer to the moon, and he removes part of his forehead protector, revealing the third eye on his forehead that resembles the eye of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. Turning towards it, Madara casts the Infinite Tsukuyomi onto the moon.

Kaguya Moon Eye Plan Complete

Kaguya's image shines over the shinobi world.

On the other battlefield, the members of the Allied Shinobi look at the moon in horror, realising that Madara's plan had finally been accomplished. Guruguru, considering his job was complete, releases an encased Yamato from his body. While Naruto destroys the remaining meteors from earlier, Sasuke rushes back to earth and covers his team-mates with his new Susanoo. Madara finally activates the genjutsu on the world, as light begins emanating from the moon and turns the night as bright as day. Around the world, all living souls fall victim to the Infinite Tsukuyomi, with the Rinnegan reflecting in their eyes. The only ones who are not affected by the technique are the reincarnated Hokage, who watch in horror as Madara activates a technique that connects all life forms to the roots of the Ten-Tails' tree form, and Team 7, with the help of Sasuke's Susanoo.
