    As the upcoming events in the manga will occur at the "bridge between heaven and earth" and as Kishimoto has already used many elements of the Japanese myths including the legendary sword Kusanagi (also called Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi: "Sword of the heaven of the clustering clouds"), I think it is quite possible for the legendary spear Amenonuhoko to be featured.
    I don't remember any character handling a spear so it might be an opportunity to do so. If so called ninjas wield huge swords, why not spears?
    There might also be a pillar summoning technique, who knows...
    Which character do you think might use this weapon?

    This is too out of the box for someone like me at the moment... Possibly an Akatsuki character would wield this weapon... Or perhaps Orochimaru's subordinate/Sasori's spy...

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the name appear, but it'd be surprising for it to be taken so literally. Tsukiyomi isn't really lunar in any way. It's just a genjutsu with moon iconography. Since we're more likely to see Sasuke than Itachi, it could just be an evolved version of Chidori. Maybe mixing them in with Hidden Snake Hands?

    I would love to have a spear fighter join. That would be so awesome. But I do believe it could work -- and if Kishimoto did do it, I wouldn't be surprised if Sai had to do with it.

    Sai doesn't seem to be the kind of shinobi who would wield a huge weapon of mass destruction. He is an artist.

    Right now I admit I can't imagine any already introduced character being a spear fighter.

    Yamato: forget it, he has a katana.
    Kabuto: let's be serious!
    Orochimaru: having the kusanagi is more than enough.

    Sasuke: I don't think so but he might. Normally huge weapons are for tall buffed guys (i.e. Zabuza and Kisame) but since weapons can be summoned from scrolls everything is possible.

    As Gaimanotaku suggested, the Amenonuhoko could well end up being a jutsu. But not a longer soulreaver looking chidori as the latter is rather a blade than a spear.

    Would spear fighting be effective though?

    lol a toothpick?! :laugh.
    I just wonder who would use the spear. I'm guessing an antagonist since new good characters might not be appearing as freequently anymore. This is IF Kishimoto decides to borrow more from mythology.

    Well considering that Naruto nearly pulled Scorpion's spear trhow attack in 243 chances are Naruto has that weapon. I mean he uses weapons which are mostly linked to kunai as Sasuke was linked to shuriken's so why not have him a spear, which is basically a spear with a kunai on the tip. Scorpion's (MK) spear also incorporated the same system, a kunai with a string attached to it's end. It would be a nice clash of weapons and style.
