I haven't been here in a minute. I meant to make this thread a few years ago for all of the slow people who constantly miss things. For the people who always scream "ASSPULL!!" whenever things don't go their way or they simply just can't understand things. I remember all the madara fanboys/girls losing their shit with the reveal of kaguya. The main gripe these ignorant butt hurt fans had was that there was no "foreshadowing" of her. The zetsu twist just added insult to injury. Pain fans lost their shit and said the same about madara and obito(well obito's plot twist was executed kinda poorly though) smh. Well for all of you people that were blinded by the rage of your favorite character being tossed aside. Causing you to miss all the foreshadowing and hints about her existence. I will help you slowly through it, and you will see she was never an ass pull and was thought of waaay back in part one. 1. Remember Kimimaro? Well he belonged to a mysterious unique powerful clan that went extinct. It was called the KAGUYA clan! I just came up with a nice theory after reading the latest boruto chapter(it's finally picking up) about kawaki. I think he's the true last member of the kaguya clan. I'll explain this in the proper thread later. But anyway, We didn't get much info on this clan or exactly why orochimaru chose him as his perfect vessel before sasuke. We now know that pretty much every special clan member that orochimaru had with him were strongly connected to the otsutsuki family. The way his clan died off was a bit ambiguous as well. Nobody even knew where they were from. So ummm yeah, this was the first sign/hint of her existence. 2. Her story is on the uchiha ancient tablet. Nobody could read all of it unless they had the fully powered eyes to see it. In Obito's flashback of when madara was telling him about what he learned from reading the whole tablet. She was shown but it was an ancient style type of picture but her name was not spoken. 3. We learned from madara that his hideout had been there for a very long time and the god tree was old as fuck. Also that the husk left behind were already there when he discovered the place. Meaning that the moons eye jutsu had already been done waaaaay back in the day. Of coarse he didn't know this because it wasn't on the tablet. We learned this from hagoromo later. 4. The mystery of zetsu. Some of us thinkers instantly figured out that zetsu would play a huge role in the future. At one point people thought he was gonna be the "final villain". The guy was the first member of akatsuki we seen that appeared at the end of part one. All he ever did was go around and gather information. He was every damn where just watching. Then we learned that he ate people(collecting their chackra I guess). White zetsu was stupid(madara's creation) while black zetsu was smart and seemed very wise. One major clue we got about black zetsu's level of knowledge was during the fake itachi vs sasuke fight. All of us sharp people were trying to figure out how zetsu knew more about itachi's blade than orochimaru(the guy who was obsessed with it). Zetsu was clearly old. So his role in kaguya's revival makes perfect sense. He creeped into the kage summit and not one person noticed him. May not be "clever" enough for some people but his/kaguya's plot twist make sense. 5. Kakashi mentioned that the sharingan came from the byakugan in the middle of part one. This was never mentioned again/explained until near the end of of part two. Lets see if you can use a little brain power and figure out why without me walking you through it anymore.... .. .the answer is what you refuse to believe about kishi's writing. So you can justify yourself screaming "ASS PULL!!!!!!" all the time. There's a few more that I can't think of right now because this is all straight from memory. Kaguya's existence has been sprinkled all throughout the series here and there. It just wasn't super obvious. It kinda reminds me of the revival of madara and people losing their shit over it calling it an ass pull lol. Besides Kurama saying his name, a few hint's were sprinkled around afterwords up until his revival. Kishi never dropped a random name or gave something a full panel and never explored it again. Hell, kaguya was actually foreshadowed/hinted at before madara if you think about it. Kaguya's was more hidden of coarse, because she was the damn final villain!! Using common sense and logic. A lot of us often wondered where did chakra come from?, where does blood limit abilities come from?, what did kakashi mean by the sharingan comes from the byakugan?, etc etc. Well only limited thinkers would have loved to see naruto end after the pain fight or with madara. But the rest of us wanted our questions answered, we wanted a full fleshed out ending. Like it or not, everything started when kaguya ate the forbidden fruit(see where kishi did there?). The whole narutoverse started with her and her family. She was a goddess that fell from grace. Her family put an end to her madness/evil and banished her. But before she was banished she left a backup plan that would one day ensure her return. Madara was very special and was chosen to help with this plan. He was nothing more than a vessel and a huge pawn. He was taken advantage of. It's ironic because he did the same to obito, who did the same to nagato. Naruto is the hero of this age old classic tale who breaks the cycle. Say what you want about how naruto ended, but don't say it was a damn "ASS PULL!!!!".
