    If you look in the last panel of the chapter just below kakuzu's arm's rings , it seems as though his forearm is clipped onto the rest of his arm with some clip or attachment of some kind. So perhaps his arms aren't real, and they can change into some hard substance.

    Yup, saw that by myself a few chapters ago -- the hand could be mechanical iron fist or atleast separate from his body.

    Kakuzu = The jigsaw puzzle ninja.
    A former oinin (hunts missing nins) who has selected the best bodyparts and attached em to himself :D

    It seems more like some sort of bracelet to me.
    And the thingclip under the bracelet is just for kakuzu's outfit from standing in the way when fighting. The outfits are kinda baggy.

    Wow great theory whether it is right or not. Perhaps his face is covered up because he stole someones head for their bloodline, arms are from someone with super strength. Anyway I don't know if its true or not but judging from that pic is possible.

    We've seen the arm bands before, which remind me of Mugen's prison tattoos in Samurai Champloo, but not the clip thingy. I noticed it right away and thought that it was a fake arm. If you look at that panel again, doesn't it look like his hand is way too small for the rest of his body? ... or is it just me?

    Not his forearms/hands? Perhaps.

    I think everyone noticed this.

    I just hope he isn't another puppet.

    yeah i thought his hand looked a little odd in that image too, but im not sure if thats intentional or just the way it appears in that panel. If the arm is fake, his head/face is too, thats why its covered

    His current appearance may just be a disguise, just like Orochimaru's and Sasori's first appearances. Or he could have a robotic go nagai-esque rocket punch...!!!:laugh
    Skeletor and Mazinger Z in the same team...

    So he would be the first nin outside of Kakashi that we know of who is utilizing body parts of other nins for his own jutsu. That might also explain his eyes being strange like that. It would especially fit a character that hunts valuable ninja.

    However if that were his ability then we can already start to guess what his weakness is. Like Kakashi he wouldn't be able to use those donor parts as efficiently as the original owner would.

    There is no need to mention any weakness if true bearers of the bloodline are never shown.

    Yeah I guess that's true, but it could be used to explain an opening or weak point in an apparently unbeatable jutsu.

    Nice catch, I hadn't noticed it, but I hope he isn't. That's just way too derivative of Sasori, who already constructed a perfect patchwork body for himself. That would be a really unoriginal power for Kakuzu to have.
