Why do people think there has to be a robot in Akatsuki?

    I dunno why people keep making the assumption there has to be some type of cyborg character in Akatsuki.

    First people thought Deidara was a robot, then they thjought toBi was a robot, and then KAkuzu. I dunno why are ppl making this assumption. Perhaps they have avalid point i noidea

    It is a bit odd, isn't it? I think rumors from the Japanese forums (where cyborg theories are common) filter over here somehow.

    Cyborgs would be retarded for naruto. This is not a futuristic Anime, nor should it be.

    If anything, Tobi might be some type of Golem... but thats about as far as i will go

    Wikipedia on cyborgs:
    "The term cyborg, a portmanteau of cybernetic organism, is used to designate an organism which adds to or enhances its abilities by using technology."

    Sasori enhanced his abilities by using technology.

    What technology?

    By that measure Orochimaru is a Cyborg to.

    edit: And Kakuzu probobly. And i guess Sasuke cause he uses advanced medicines to make himself stronger.

    :S did you not see Sasori's body? It was not biological, it was a body of manufactured parts. It is not living tissue, it is mechanical in nature. Hence cyborg.

    Oro and Sasuke are not cyborgs. They have 100% human bodies. Kakuzu too, probably.

    First off, that is an awsome smiley.

    Second off, I see where you are comming from now. But from your definition, it is just the use of technology to enhance your body... Wouldn't takign very technologically advanced drugs be the same thing, just to a far, far, far lesser extent? So i guess, only slightly "cyborgish"

    I wouldn't really mind if Kakuzu were actually robotic in some way, although it seems a bit odd for Narutoverse. Sasori was puppetry, not really robotics, there's a fine line there, but theres no hydrolics or computer chips and such, just joints being manipulated with chakra.

    My guess is Kakuzu is more likely either a chimera (Frankenstein-esque) or he's just battled so much he had to reattach his parts and perhaps make "adjustments" here and there. His arms seem to be from the same being, so either they are someone else's (chimera theory) or his own that have simply been reattached. He does have other powers we don't quite know the extent of though, we've seen his arms do something before. Who knows how much of the rest of his body has been sewn together.

    Your thread title was the first i'd heard of this 'common' opinion.

    Interesting I guess, but unlikely.

    As for Sasori, he always struck me as a puppet with a more supernatural beginning, ala the puppets from the Puppet Master movies, than a cyborg. I think I might have a more sharper defining line between what I'll label a cyborg (need more science to it for me).

    We are a little quick in our judgement:

    1) I, as many, Think that if there were a "robot" in Akatsuki, this was sasori.

    2) Kakuzu may be one, after all Naruto technology is really a mess, so i will not discount the idea.

    The important question is if it's really taht important, if Kakuzu were a robot, he would be the most funny Akatsuki member, because if he dies, you can replace him :)

    So lets time says.

    Dude, I think everybody in the AL is a robot. It's the only possible explanation.

    Hidan is a fleshy cyborg, that cannot die.
    Kakuzu is a super cyborg, that can extend his arms.
    Sasori was a wooden robot.
    Kisame is a shark robot, with super strength.
    Itachi is a weird Uchiha eye implant cloned cyborg.
    Zetsu is a plant robot, with weird nature manipulation powers, and telescopic robo-sight.
    AL is a mega robot, with ultra power.
