** 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".
