Kabuto Yakushi still has a role to fill..
This is simply a theory i've come up with, I still believe Kabuto has a role to play it might not be a huge one, but I do believe that somewhere soon along the line Kabuto will do something changing the outlook on himself. Okay now let's get down to business!
Kabuto's Kekkai Genkai
"Okay, yes! I know everyones thinking what?!? Kabuto doesn't have a Kekkai Genkai you're a complete idiot, and making up things!"... Well i'm not see when Kabuto was "finding his way" during the time he had Orochimaru's DNA he had taken several peoples DNA into his cells.
Now here's the tricky part, most of you also think Orochimaru took all of Kabuto's powers away, well that is false.. This states that Orochimaru only took back "his" powers during the phase Sasuke revived Kabuto.
"After being revived, Orochimaru reabsorbs all of his chakra from Kabuto's body, thus undoing all of his snake-like bodily modifications, returning him to his human form".
Okay now that i've cleared that up, think about WHOSE DNA Kabuto had implanted in himself. This to me turns around the whole Kabuto is worthless ideas in my head, now let's get to that..
Whose Kekkai Genkai does Kabuto have?
That's right you've guess it! One of the most awsome characters in Part 1, and it well-known, loved and a tad bit underrated by NB's fanbase!
Kimimaro's Kekkai Genkai which we all should be familiar with was one, let me correct myself.. Is one of the most powerful Kekkai Genkai's in the NarutoVerse! Let's read up on it now..
Shikotsumyaku is the kekkei genkai of the extinct Kaguya clan, which gave them the ability to manipulate their own skeletal structure (their osteoblasts and osteoclasts). By infusing their calcium with chakra, they could manipulate the growth and properties of their bones to their liking.
Now Orochimaru praised the Kaguya clan for this Kekkai Genkai because of their exceptional, no that would be an insult.. Their legendary taijutsu, and how their Kekkai Genkai enhanced their taijutsu.
Orochimaru coveted this ability greatly, stating the kekkei genkai granted the user an impenetrable skeletal frame, which can resist any type of physical attack. In addition, should a Shikotsumyaku user ever go on the offensive, they could instantly turn their bones into the sharpest spear. Overall, the Shikotsumyaku is considered to be the ultimate taijutsu ability, which is held in high regard.
But wait.. Kabuto also had another Kekkai Genkai, interesting right?
Who else's Kekkai Genkai did Kabuto have??
Do you remember Sakon/Ukon from Part 1 from the Sound Four? Well guess what Kabuto has his Kekkai Genkai also! Two Kekkai Genkai that's pretty powerful if I may say.. Now if you don't remember their Kekkai Genkai ability here it is..
Sakon and Ukon's unnamed kekkei genkai gives them the unique ability to break their bodies down to a molecular level. The two brothers usually use this ability to share the same body but can also use it to merge with the bodies of others and destroy the host's cells from the inside. When Sakon is in need of assistance, Ukon can bring out some of his body parts to aid Sakon in blocking or attacking. Ukon's arms and legs can emerge from those of Sakon's to increase the force and quantity to his physical attacks.
Their Kekkai Genkai can also, heal the user quickly, but does have a toll on the users chakra reserve, it's also great for when needing to double team an opponent which would come in handy to shake off genjutsu, and other things of the same sort..
DNA From 3/4 Taka members!
Kabuto while proceeding on his journey to "find himself" had also implanted DNA of a few more ninjas, this includes..
Karin- She's an Uzumaki (Red Hair), and is known for her exceptional healing prowess.. Well guess what Kabuto has her DNA implanted into himself.. He already has exceptional self regeneration, so now it's even more overpowered.. Remember he tanked a Rasengan from Naruto in Part 1..
Suigetsu- Kabuto took some of his DNA, now he's able to use this type of tech, which is useful in many ways..
Hydrification Technique by liquifying the whole body at will, this technique makes it impossible to receive damage from physical attacks. From a single hair to the skin and muscles, everything can be liquefied and solidified at will. Be it to evade an enemy's attack during a short range battle, to infiltrate a structure, or to launch a surprise attack in a liquefied state, this technique boasts a high strategic value. Using this, the user can also re-shape their body parts for suitable situations.
Jugo- I'm going to save this information for later on in this thread.. Trust me, this is what proves Kabuto to be strong without Orochimaru's DNA.
DNA from the Sound Four
Well if you read the manga you've seen Kabuto use all of the Sound Four techs.. Kabuto keeps on getting better, and better everytime I think to myself.. Now listen up, here's all the techs Kabuto inherited from their DNA..
Sakon/Ukon- I already listed this in the Kekkai Genkai Section, so no explanation is needed here.
Tayuya- Well we all know this demonic girl, she has one of the best genjutsu's in Part 1, it's very dangerous if caught in, here's what it is..
An illusion that relies on the sound of the flute. Whoever hears it will be assailed by the vivid sensation that their limbs have been fastened with sturdy ropes, thus becoming unable to move about freely. Even without physical intervention from an outside force, the body is robbed of all mobility, and consciousness itself progressively fades away. At the same time, they are fed morbid hallucinations, which makes it also possible to run them down mentally. Given that the means of transmission is sound-based, it has a large range of effectiveness, on top of which it can be applied even without knowledge of the enemy's position, which makes for an exceedingly convenient technique.
Now people say Kabuto needs a flute.. It states that he can carve a flute from Kimimaro's Kekkai Genkai.
Kidōmaru- I like to call this guy spiderman, not really though.. He was by far my favorite guy in the Sound Four, next to Kimimaro
here's his tech..
A web that captures and contains all enemies attacking from the front. Kidōmaru catches his enemy off guard by releasing it while in the air. By swiftly spreading the ball of thread with his six "legs" the web covers a wide area. The chakra imbued threads cannot be cut by even a dagger. The sticky and elastic threads are so strong that even an elephant pulling each end would not break them. The enemy is unable to budge a muscle, let alone fight back. Once captured, their fate is in the hands of Kidōmaru. Also, according to Kidōmaru, it can hold more than five tons. This web however can be destroyed through the use of the Gentle Fist, and Amaterasu.
Lol isn't it convenient that is can be destroyed by Amaterasu.. and Gentle Fist.. and this tech was defeated by users of both tech.. :rolleyes:
Jirōbō - Well Kabuto didn't really get much from this guy except some of his Earth style techs, nothing special.. Never really liked this guy anyways U_U...
Sage Mode, and Kabuto!
Now here's where Jugo's DNA kicks in .. Now see Jugo's Clan ability allows them to absorb "Natural Energy". Here's what Natural Energy does..
Natural Energy- is energy that can be collected from the atmosphere and terrain. If one can collect the natural energy from around them and combine and balance it with the spiritual and physical energy that makes up their chakra, they can become sages and enter the Sage Mode, allowing them to use senjutsu. This method can be taught by the inhabitants in one of two legendary locations:
Mount Myōboku, and Ryūchi Cave.. Which is where Kabuto learned Sage mode from Ryūchi Cave.
This clearly states that Kabuto could have learned how to become a Sage without Orochimaru's DNA, BUT I also think the Snake Sage wouldn't have taught Kabuto if he didn't have Orochimaru's DNA implanted into himself.. Just what I think about that.
Kabuto and Edo Tensei
Now this might be a confusing topic but, i'm here to clear it up.. I believe that after Kabuto had implanted Orochimaru's DNA into himself, and studied Orochimaru's side-notes about the jutsu, I believe he basically "perfected" Edo Tensei. Now that Orochimaru's DNA is gone from his body, some people are wary about the idea of Kabuto still being able to use such a jutsu.. Well I believe he still can BUT, it would be clearly "imperfect"..
I believe such a think, because Kabuto is rather smart, sure he isn't on the level of a pure "genius' but, he is around Shikamaru's level of though which is no way inferior to many shinbo. Shikamaru's thinking level is in that of the top five shinobi in the Narutoverse..
Things i'm unsure of..
I am quite unsure about if Kabuto can still use "Snake" based techs, because of the extraction of Orochimaru's DNA..
Also I am unsure if Kabuto can still use Edo Tensei, since Orochimaru's DNA was extracted.
Things I'm Sure of..
Before you people rant, and say "NO OROCHIMARU'S POWER IS THE CURSE SEALS!! YOU MAKE NO SENSE AT ALL!"..
Listen to this, in no way have I listed any curse seal abilities here, all of these abilities Kabuto inherited from their DNA, in which their techs I listed were all not connected to Orochimaru's cursed seal..
I see Kabuto having one more big role in Naruto, maybe more.. But don't count Kabuto out just yet..
