Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back with another interesting informative post regarding NarutoVerse. In this post, I’ll be giving you all the information about the Edo Tensei technique, like it works and what is the logic behind its working and simply everything there is to this all-powerful technique.
Let’s begin the list of why Edo Tensei is the most hax Naruto jutsu
It is the most complicated technique in the NarutoVerse. It is S ranked forbidden or kinjutsu in NarutoVerse. Tobirama Senju was the inventor of this power technique. This technique has been derived from the normal summoning technique.
We have seen this awesome jutsu a couple of times being used by Orochimaru and Kabuto Yakushi who just used it to its fullest potential. The purpose of this jutsu is to bring a dead person back to life. This is the basic purpose of this technique but the working mechanism of this technique is pretty complicated to explain.
I’ll be doing my best to make you all understand. One has to summon a dead person.
When someone summons an animal using this technique they have to have a contract with the summoner and obviously when using Edo Tensei no such contract can be made.
In place of the contract in Edo Tensei, the summoner uses the DNA of the person he wants to summon. Also, in order to perform this summoning, the user has to offer a living sacrifice as well.
This sacrifice is used as a vessel to bring back the soul of the dead character. Like normal summonings, it also involves a scroll and a bit of blood of the summoner. Meanwhile, the person being sacrificed changes into the revived person. When the summoning is complete and the person is revived the summoner has complete over the revived person.
The summoner can easily choose how much he wants to the revived person to be like his normal self.
Tobirama Senju couldn’t maintain control over his reanimations and thus couldn’t summon a lot of people at the same time and also the reanimated version of the person that Tobirama used to summon were very weaker than their living selves.
But Orochimaru improvised on this jutsu and then later Kabuto Yakushi just nullified its weaknesses. Kabuto could summon as many people as he wanted and also they weren’t as weak of Orochimaru and Tobirama’s reanimated people.
To reanimate a person, one’s soul has to be in the pure land. That’s why Kabuto wasn’t able to summon 4 Hokage as they were in grim reaper’s stomach and not in pure land. The flaws of this technique are offset due to their advantages. First of all the reanimated characters have unlimited chakra. So, they can use all their techniques to their fullest.
Also, they cannot be killed and just sealed. Imagine Might Guy being reanimated in his youth. He would use all inner eight gates without getting killed.
That surely is scary. As we saw Kabuto Yakushi he made a full army of reanimated shinobi thus one can even fight a war with the help of this technique.
Now, coming to its flaws. Even Edo Tensei reanimations are not safe from genjutsu. As we saw Kotoamatsukami was able to turn Itachi Uchiha’s reanimated body against his summoner Kabuto Yakushi.
It was this reanimated Itachi who put an end to the Edo Tensei that Kabuto Yakushi had cast. Another flaw in this jutsu is that if the reanimated person knows the hand seals he can easily break the control of the summoner over his body and become free easily.
Thus, this is how Edo Tensei can be used and it is clear that even though that Edo Tensei has some flaws it certainly is one of the strongest ever techniques.
Well, as I said one can easily fight one of the biggest wars on his own just using this technique while the summoner keeps his location hidden.
That is it from today’s post on why Edo Tensei is the most hax Naruto jutsu. I do hope I was able to make you all understand everything there is to Edo Tensei.
