* Naruto explicitly states that he believes in Majority Rules (I.e. The solution the most people believe in is the right/best one). Expanding on this, if one person must die to save ten or a hundred then by majority rules Naruto would believe it right and just to kill that one person. Sound familiar? It should because this point of view justifies his becoming a jinchuriki, if Naruto didn't believe in majority rules he would have no way of justifying all the pain and suffering he has experienced and, therefore, no way to forgive Konoha!

* I had always wondered why Orochimaru had to go from body to body, and it was never explained how the host body rejects Orochimaru. With the revelation of the fact that his arms were still sealed within the Reaper (Yes, I use the english dub name, big whoop >.> and he had to free them in order to use reanimation, it occurred to me. Orochimaru could not completely take over bodies with an incomplete soul- a portion of the victim's soul was still within the body, and it would fight back over time. --- Dephlogisticate

* More Fridge Sadness than anything, but Obito's vision of a life he could have had is basically a his subconscious lying to himself. He imagines himself as Hokage, ignoring the fact that if he didn't side with Madara, Minato would still be alive and would reign for many years to come. Also take into consideration that Obito would still be missing an eye and have tissue-damage on the right side of his face. His chances of becoming Hokage wouldn't be particularly high considering that visible injuries could be seen as a sign of weakness to foreign nations (do you know many real-life political leaders with facial scars as bad as Obito's?).
** Danzo may have gotten by despite this, but remember that he was also Konoha's highest-ranking military leader, which shows strength of character. He also hadn't fully earned the title as the other Kage were sceptical of his methods.

* The only reason we know that Haku is a boy is because s/he tells Naruto this. Everything else about Haku (apperance, voice, effeminate mannierisms) even during childhood suggests a young girl. Realize that Haku recognized Naruto as the enemy and may not have wanted him to hold back when they would do battle later. Since even the viewers had a hard time with this, is it out of the question that Haku could have told a flat out ''lie''? . "A ninja must see through deception," anyone?

*** Not to mention any more NaruHina treats we get will more than likely [[BaseBreaker break the already broken base]] even more. If anything, we'll probably get closure on this issue at the very last chapter.

* Kabuto's return and role as part of a BigBadDuumvirate with Madara caught me off guard at first. I mean, we all knew he was coming back (he's after all, a former disciple of Orochimaru's who has a rivalry with Naruto and wants revenge against Sasuke) but I was expecting some petty revenge plot, not an elevation into a DangerouslyGenreSavvy ClassicVillain. It works and its justified, but I wondered where it was going. And then I realised this: one of the major themes of this series is the young generation surpassing the old. Almost every major villain they've fought has either had ties to the past and previous generations, been angsty kid like Sasuke, or, like Deidara and Hidan, no connection to the main cast whatsoever. Kabuto's 23, has very personal rivalries with Naruto and Sasuke, and is shaping up to be serious contender for the BigBad role, all while coming off as an archetypal villain. Kabuto is to villainy as Naruto is to heroism: he's the new blood that keeps the ball rolling and surpasses his predecessors. The fact that he's allied with [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Madara]] only serves to hammer that point home.

* Why is Rock Lee's jumpsuit green? Because he's the "young leaf". Why are his legwarmers orange? Because he's standing on the fallen leaves (Gai sensei's sacrifice).

* Latest chapters show that in the battle with Madara, Tsunade and Oonoki are the two left standing. At first, I'd thought that Mei, Gaara, and A were getting [[TheWorfEffect worfed.]] But then I realized that Oonoki personally fought Madara. Also, while Tsunade may not have fought Madara personally, its not unreasonable that knowledge of Madara's techniques abilities, etc. may have been passed down in her family! So of course these two would be able to adapt better to him!

to:

* Latest • Guys, this “Biju Revival” plot hole isn’t really a plot hole at all and the answer is a really long but simple one.
o First, the Kyuubi stated to that Naruto that if he dies, he dies too. Now why would the Kyuubi say that if all the Biju could revive them after death? Because the simple truth is that they can’t. Think about the actions and behavior of the Biju, they get hurt and even the Hachibi states that even they have feelings, to me this means if the Biju could revive themselves then they wouldn’t care that host dies or if they get killed or even worst commit suicide. This would also make them useless militarily because even if of the villages could fit the right host, the Biju would try to die in order to escape anyway they can. Yet the Bijus and Kyuubi all protect their host all the time and Kyuubi has always been trying to escape from Naruto’s body. This means that as long as they are connected to a host, they can die!
o Secondly, the one who brought up this fact was Ay right? However doesn’t anyone find that kinda sketchy? Ay has been characterized as a person who cares and looks out for his men, especially Killer Bee however he is also a bit of a hypocritic since denies a lot of incidents that the Hidden Cloud village were responsible in (Stealing ninjustu from other villages, abducting a young Hinata and Kushina, causing the death of Tobirama, the Second Hokage). He is also characterized as a person who gets really aggressive and stubborn when Killer Bee is in danger. Now considering that both Naruto and Killer Bee were at risk of being capture and killed, would it really be out of Ay’s character to Lie about the Kyuubi being able to revive in order to kill Naruto to save his brother, the world and keep the Biju truce with the Hidden Leaf?
 Think about his logic for a second, if that was true Tsunade or any other Hidden Leaf village shinobi would be justified in killing Killer Bee in order to stop the war, which of course Ay would outright refuse thus showing his hypocrisy and a flaw in his logic.
 It also would contradicts what we have learned about Ay, Killer Bee, The Hachibi and The Hidden Cloud Village. If the Bijus could revive themselves then both Ay and his father should have gone all out to kill the Hachibi thus saving more lives. In the case the Hidden Cloud, they could easily recover the Hachibi, thanks to those sacred treasures that they have. It also would contradict what Ay said about finding some who can control the Biju rare a lie because the village would have plenty of time to strong people to become a Jinchuriki.
o Thirdly, the issue with Rin and her being the host Sanbi and the simple fact is that Rin didn’t have the Sanbi in her body in the first place! There are several reasons why
 First off, it’s more likely that Madara mind controlled both Rin and the Hidden Mist Shinobi for his plan to turn Obito to the darkside. Madara made Rin act suicidal and say that she was carrying Sanbi in order to get Kakashi a reason to kill her. He also made the Hidden Mist say similar things confirm this.
 Second, how could Madara capture the Sanbi in his current condition? He couldn’t and if he did, why does he Obito then?
 Third, why would Madara risk losing a tailed-beast that is needed for the Moon-Eye Plan in a gambit to get a kid on to his side? He wouldn’t, because killing the Biju would stop the plan completely
 Fourth, if the Sanbi was going to be revived somewhere else, why would it return to its captors? It wouldn’t because it never escaped (yet)
 Fifthly why would Obito go to the Hidden Mist village if the beast isn’t there? Remember that Obito was pretty determined to get the plan started (talking to Nagito to get him on his side, attack the Hidden Leaf Village to get the Kyuubi). There is no beneficial reason to go the Hidden Mist Village (other than revenge but that’s just wasting time).
 Sixth, if Yagura was suppose to be dead at this point then why is he still alive and as Third Mizukage? Obito doesn’t know Edo Tensei and if it was genjustu casting a illusion of Yagura then someone would have eventually noticed
o It’s a stretch but here is what I believe really happen, Madara mind controls Rin and the Hidden Mist shinobi and makes them act and behave like they implanted Rin with the Sanbi and that it’s going to destroy the Hidden Leaf village, thus giving Kakashi a reason to kill Rin. Kakashi of refuses to kill to Rin and tries to save her some other way but Madara forces Rin to get stab by Kakashi Raikiri, thus setting off Obito’s berserk button and setting him up to the dark side. After failing to get the Kyuubi, Obito later travels to the Hidden Mist village in order to find other jinchuriki and discovers that the Sanbi is inside Yagura.
o For those who are wondering about that this should have made Obito realize he was tricked by Madara, it’s really that this may give Obito more credit to his idea that this world is crap because he was pretty used much like most shinobi and that this world isn’t worth fighting for. Obito then puts a genjustu on Yagura fully controlling him but instead of extracting the Sanbi, Obito decides to get his revenge on the Hidden Mist village by becoming the Mizukage and turning the Hidden Mist village into the Bloody Mist village. After having his revenge and gaining Kisame as an ally, Obito decides to finally seal the Sanbi into Gedou statue however his revenge bites him on the butt when Zabuza, a shinobi that he created thanks to the graduation exam he placed, interrupts the sealing process and this is how the Sanbi managed to escape. For those who were wondering why Zabuza didn’t say anything about the event he saw, it’s likely that he was too focused on his own ambitions to care about what he saw or mention it to anyone.
With these three main points I made, one can argue that the Biju in do die and the need to keep them alive in the case of both the heroes and villains is still valid. Therefore this isn’t a plothole -ZanyHedgehog

But instead Shikamaru took revenge on Hidan and this golden opportunity pretty much disappeared. The main reason that revenge is bad even if it’s control like Shikamaru or wild like Sasuke is because people who commit the act of revenge never consider the long term effects or other options and it also means that it screws everyone up later on (which kinda does)

Anyway on of my major points that the Hidan and kakazu arcs is one of the important arc in the series and the reason is that if Shikamaru had captured Hidan(through decapitation) and gain information from him, every tragic event that happens afterwards could been avoided or stop for example
• They could have learned where the Akatsuki bases were located, who are the members and their associates and who is in charge of the organization. They would then learn that the Akatsuki base would be in the hidden rain village and prepare for an invasion force earlier on and thus Jiraya would still be alive and the attack on Konoha would have been avoided.
• They would also gain the knowledge of where Itachi and therefore Sasuke are and instead of running around in the purist of Itachi arc. If they could capture itachi then they would be able to learn the full truth about the Uchiha massacre. They would also lend to Sasuke’s goal to have more (or less depending on how you interpret the character) weight.
• Capturing Hidan would also mean learning how many bijou and jinchuriki are left and learning their locates and possibility helping them out or in the case of the Bijou ether capturing it, sealing it away forever or straight out killing it. They could also use this info to warn the other villages about their jinchuriki about to be taken (if they even care or too afraid to help him/her). But ultimately it would halt, completely stop the Akatsuki plan entirely or make things more difficult for them.
• This would also mean no Fourth Great Shinobi War and no countless deaths of Shinobi including Neji, Shikamaru’s dad (Shikamaru didn’t look happy now huh?) and Ino’s dad. This also means no resurrection of Madara or Kaguya
• In another sense, Shikamaru would actually be protecting the next generation
