We already know why Jiraiya wasn’t resurrected with Edo Tensei, but why did Kabuto decide not to resurrect these 7 strongest ninja in Naruto? Who are they, and why? Let’s find out together!

During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kabuto awakened hundreds of ninjas great and talented enough to bring the Alliance Army to despair. Starting from members of Akatsuki, the Kage before that, to other ninjas.

We already know why Jiraiya wasn’t resurrected with Edo Tensei, but why did Kabuto decide not to resurrect these 7 greatest ninjas? Who are they, and why? Let’s find out with Naruto Universe Blog!

Uchiha Izuna

Uchiha Izuna

The younger brother of Madara Uchiha, and the first to be able to awaken the power of the Mangekyō Sharingan. And because she was once the representative of the Uchiha clan, of course Izuna’s strength could not be underestimated.

Boruto is an Otsutsuki? How is Boruto related to the Otsutsuki clan?

But there are two reasons why Izuna wasn’t reincarnated to help Madara deal with the Shinobi Alliance.

First, unlike Madara, who tried to stay alive for as long as possible, Izuna was killed for a long time and most likely the body and DNA could not be found.

Second, Izuna gave his Sharingan to Madara before he died. So even if it was revived, Izuna would not be useful on the battlefield.

Uchiha Shisui

Uchiha Shisui

Known as one of the greatest Uchiha members, for some reason Shisui was not revived by Kabuto.

But as briefly discussed in the Edo Tensei Jiraiya discussion, Kabuto and Obito decided that spending time searching for Shisui and Jiraiya’s DNA would also take a lot of time and using Madara would be enough.

Kisame Hoshigaki

Kisame Hoshigaki

One of the most recently killed Akatsuki members. Not only is he reliable when using waterbending, Kisame is also very compatible with his sword Samehada so his fighting ability is very high.

However, it was very difficult for Kisame to be reincarnated through Edo Tensei because he decided to kill himself by being eaten by sharks in Kumogakure.

Not only is the DNA scattered, Kabuto will also have a hard time infiltrating the enemy’s area to find and retrieve Kisame’s DNA.

Konan

Konan’s ninjutsu abilities with paper jutsu will certainly help Obito’s forces during the Fourth World War Shinobi.

But somehow, she and Yahiko were not resurrected even though Konan was killed while fighting Obito in Amegakure – near Nagato’s grave site.

Obito most likely doubts that Konan will be able to reverse the influence of Edo Tensei.

Danzo Shimura

Though heavily dependent on the dozens of Sharingan eyes he glued all over his body, Danzou himself was still a talented shinobi that couldn’t be taken lightly.

But Kabuto must have had a hard time getting his DNA because he died by self-destruction.

Hatake Sakumo

Known as the “White Fang of Konoha” not only in the village but also in the ears of Kage and other high-ranking officials, of course Kakashi’s father had a great reputation as a ninja. Why didn’t Kabuto call him?

Similar to Kisame’s case, it is possible that Kabuto felt that infiltrating Konoha would be too dangerous and that finding his DNA in a vast ninja cemetery would take too long.

Might Dai

Gai’s father is actually not very famous and is often made fun of because he has been a genin all his life – earning the title of “Eternal Gene”.

But not many people know that his ability to open 8 Gates (though not perfect) can kill 4 out of 7 owners of the legendary sword Kirigakure.

Surely if Might Dai was revived and had unlimited body strength, it would make him a very terrible ninja, wouldn’t it?

But back to the first sentence: Like everyone else, Kabuto must have also underestimated Dai, so Kabuto didn’t reincarnate this great Eternal Gene.
