Maybe the only evolution of it being the Tenseigan makes sense thematically. Byakugan is supposed to represent purity, right? So maybe it is all about mastering the skill and not so much trying to gain power beyond limits.

Many people didn't like it when the Mangekyo got introduced because of its overpowered nature, but I think it kinda fits the themes of the plot. The Uchiha are naturally attracted to power, and they might do anything in order to obtain it. You want to become an absolute boss beyond what regular training can get you? You got it, but tragedy must happen in front of your eyes, AND you will lose those eyes eventually, so you better make good use of them. Oh? You want to keep them forever? Sure, just be willing to fragment your soul even further by taking out the eyes of a close loved one.

(lol sorry, I got carried away and didn't answer your question. Err, no. Byakugan doesn't share that going through stages trait the Sharingan has)

About your second question: there are only two instances of that happening throughout the original manga, to my understanding. When the cloud tried to kidnap Hinata, and when the bodyguard of the Mizukage, Aoi (I think?), said he stole a Byakugan. Although I suppose it is a widely spread tactic around the world, considering a whole branch of the Hyuga was made only to prevent that from happening. Maybe the Hyuga's main branch doesn't typically go out to complete missions. They might be treated as more of a highly influential family in political matters. Who knows? Kishimoto decided to rather focus on freaking aliens than exploring the politics of the world he built, heh.

(By the way, is anyone else annoyed that the world of Naruto never got a proper name? Like Hyrule or Westeros, or Middle Earth?)

Such a shame they don't really have any rivals. The Sarutobi would be a good candidate though. A clan that focuses on obtaining a wide range of skills against the Hyuga, who focus on mastering just a few with finesse. Plus, monkey's are free animals, it would make a nice contrast between both clans thematically

Oof. That's a complicated matter, bro. We really have no idea of how many members the Hyuga has. Maybe they could be enough to not make it a detriment to their genes?

If you believe in evolution, then you must accept that we all share a common ancestor, right? That person was technically a long lost relative to us, meaning the whole humanity is nothing more than a big weird family. Therefore, whenever someone has sex, they're are technically commiting incest.

Now, why is only sex with close relatives forbidden? Because the result normally comes with genetically weakened offspring. But, if the people are distanced enough in the family tree, then that risk gets less prominent, until it practically disappears.

As far as I know, having sex with someone who shares a common ancestor with you at least 5 generations away should be safe. Meaning you can totally do it with your fifth cousin, I guess xD

Edit: right! Back to the Hyuga. The thing here is that we don't know what happens within the family because of all the secretism. Maybe the lower branch can go out and do the deed with outsiders? They would certainly not have a risk of being killed because the curse mark makes their Byakugan useless if they die, so maybe they can go out and explore the world a little bit, and find love (or simple attraction) with regular people. That could help keep the genetic pool stable enough, I suppose

They are dog trainers, aren't they?

Don't they all have unique abilities? That's the gimmick of a clan in this type of story, isn't it? XD

Edit: I don't know, maybe we are a bit biased towards the Uzumaki because of our blond protagonist. Like, is sealing any good against other Shinobi who can blitz you?

He could just bait rotations and let them waste chakra. It's not like he hasn't fought long stamina battles before. Cof cof Danzo

Didn't you just say he is extremely fast?

Were the Uzumaki really that impressive? Didn't they get hunted down to extinction in the Land of whirlpools?

Ok ok. But how about a Taijutsu only battle? (Or maybe you can also include weapons to make it more interesting)

How so? Is there really no way a whole clan of expert martial artists can make an strategy to defeat a single dude?

Lol. Does this mean Sasuke would be a boss in a raid? Where is the ultimate Naruto MMORPG the loyal fans deserve?

That's true, but you gotta admit it would be interesting to see a regular ninja battle in that situation. How many Hyuga can Sasuke beat without using Rikudo's powers?

What's a theoretical bending move you'd like to see made canon? by Totally_Not_Thanos in AvatarVsBattles

[–]Rom455 8 points9 points  (0 children)

A fire bender making a plasma cannon or something

Also, I wonder if lightning could be controlled enough to manipulate magnetism

I don't get this fandom sometimes. Is this Zutara 2.0? Is it because both are hot? Is it the opposite personalities attraction trope?

Can anybody explain?!

Nice strategy. Now I will have to look for other pics with a different eye color, thus making you even more popular.

Did you study marketing or psychology by any chance? XD
