**** In the manga canon, Kabuto ''could'' have revived Jiraiya, he said so himself — he just didn't because Tobi/Obito didn't want him to. His manga plan was to use the DNA left on the Pains' weapons, so perhaps in the show canon, Konan had already destroyed the weapons. The other key thing is probably that he needs a certain ''amount'' of DNA material — maybe Jiraiya would've been easy to collect some kind of DNA from while alive, but he might not have been able to get a large enough hair/blood sample without Jiraiya cluing in.

** The actual issue was that Tsunade hadn't witnessed the exams, Sarutobi was dead, and people were calling for there to be no new Chunin at all due to the invasion interrupting the Exam. The only reason Shikamaru got promoted was that not only did all proctors and elders unanimously agree to it, but Sarutobi was known to have endorsed his promotion. Had the Third Hokage survived his fight with Orochmaru, and been available to properly decide and communicate who he thought should pass, it's likely that a few more Genin would have been made Chunins, possibly including Naruto.

*** In the end, though, the plot thread came back: most if not all of the Otsutsuki had the Byakugan, and Kaguya at least had it before she got her Rinne Sharingan through eating the Chakra Fruit.

** The simpler answer is that his Izanagi-blind eye healed once it turned into a Rinnegan.


** My best guess is that Minato stumbled into a loophole — he used himself as the sealing destination for Kurama, but Shiki Fuujin requires the death of the caster (and also isn't designed to be used to create Jinchuuriki in the first place, but that can be handwaved as Minnato simply being that good at fuinjutsu.) If we consider the jutsu as being a sort of "contract" with the Shinigami, then it's possible the Shinigami itself was obligated to find a way to make it work, since otherwise some part of the transaction would go unfulfilled.

** My best guess is EDIT from previous comment, after looking into it more: the sequence of events seems to be that Kurama's Yin half was sealed inside Minato, and then both of them were sealed inside the Shinigami's stomach together. As such, Minato stumbled was technically still alive when he became the Jinchuuriki. Normally a Jinchuuriki's death would release the tailed beast's chakra back into a loophole — he used himself as the world... but since Kurama was under the sealing destination for Kurama, but effect of Shiki Fuujin requires the death of the caster (and also isn't designed Fuujin, that couldn't happen. In other words: you have to be used alive to create Jinchuuriki in the first place, BECOME a jinchuuriki, but that can be handwaved as Minnato simply being that good at fuinjutsu.) If we consider the jutsu as being if were ALREADY a sort of "contract" with the Shinigami, jinchuuriki BEFORE you died, then it's possible the Shinigami itself was obligated to find you just need a way to make it work, since otherwise some part of prevent the transaction would go unfulfilled.tailed beast from fleeing when you die, and then you can be resurrected with it still inside you just fine.

* Shikamaru being the only Chunin from his exam made no sense and the accepted answer of "leadership skills" does not help. Yes, Shikamaru was smart enough to know his limits but Naruto's limits being higher shouldn't penalize him. Naruto defeating Neji, who was a Chunin in everything but title, then proceeding to do what he did against Gaara proved that the only Shinobi cable of defeating him once he really started to cook had to at least be Jonin. Sure, he may not have the ability to lead a team but being a Chunin doesn't mean that he has to lead a team. Send him out as a shock trooper like Team Gai clearly is. Just like in the real world military, rank and position are not exactly the same thing.

* If the Sage of the Six Paths created the moon, how did the world have tides until that point?
** It probably didn't. It would be weird, though, but it might be possible. Or maybe it was the power of the juubi that created the tides, and that's why the moon causes tides...
** Granted this is a world where all sortsof weird stuff might be true I'd taken that particular statement as just a fairy tale.
** The sun causes tides, too. It's just that the Moon's influence is much greater because it's so much closer (tides are proportional to mass and inversely proportional to the cube of the distance.
** No way. The moon is what keeps the Earth at a steady tilt, and without it, the Earth would wobble on its axis however it damned pleased. Life would be unsustainable, and oceans could suddenly become new icecaps, forget about tides. Look at Mars for an example of the terrain that can be found on a moonless planet. The sun plays a very small role on the tides, so much that only in cases of alignment with the moon does it have any noticeable affect. As far as this troper is concerned, the whole creating the moon thing is a myth to make the Sage of Six Paths look cool or an exaggeration. Like maybe he just sealed 10-tails into the already-existing moon.
*** Except that, you know, mars has ''two'' moons. It's hardly a moonless planet, nor has it "wobble on its axis however it damned well pleased".

** This somewhat gets addressed in the sequal Boruto, many of the characters in that show have two Ninja parents from the previous series and so they learn both their parents techniques and skills. But Shikamaru's son Shikadai specifically feels pressure from his clan elder to focus more on using his clans shadow technique at the expense of learning his mothers wind style. Clan tradition might not make a lot of sense but when a clans prominance is attached to either a secret technique or a bloodline limit they feel a lot of internal pressure to find creative ways to make their clan techniques fit the situation. Also in general almost no shinobi is an "All rounder" Some are close range fighters some are sensor types some are long range fighters, that's why they get put on teams to help create balence between the skills.
