Is Tobi really Madara Uchiha? Who is behind Tobi’s mask?

The Man behind Tobi’s mask. Who is really Tobi?

Before Naruto Chapter 559 and Naruto Chapter 560 were released, a lot of us were wondering who is really Tobi behind the mask? There were many speculations that for many months was left unanswered. Until Tobi was finally revealed as Madara Uchiha (before).


madara uchiha

We presumed, before, that Tobi was Madara because the fact that he has Sharingan eyes like Madara. Basically he has Madara’s power.

Another speculation is that, he is Obito. But Obito was still very young when he died. So most Naruto fans dropped that theory.

But now, when the epic chapters 559 and 560 were released, we were shocked by what we have seen! Madara Uchiha was summoned and was resurrected using the Impure World Resurrection. According to Gaara, the person used that technique most probably died. But I doubt it.

Someone is really pulling the strings aside from Kabuto. Kabuto is just an assistant or subordinate. And the real master mind behind this might be even Orochimaru. There were speculations that one of Kabuto’s goal was the resurrection of Orochimaru.

Now that the real Madara Uchiha has appeared, the big question now is “who in the world is the man behind the mask?Who is really Tobi?

who is madara

This leads into another sets of speculation. Now that the theory that he is the “real” Madara is crossed out, this leaves that Tobi might be another person or a clone.

Again the theory that Tobi is Obito resurfaced. Another interesting theory is that he is a clone of Madara. Remember that Kabuto somehow modified Madara’s body so that he would have powers beyond his prime state? They could have messed Madara’s original body and made a clone.

There is no doubt that the Madara appeared in Naruto chapters 559 and 560 is really Madara Uchiha. Another observation is that he has a Sharingan on one eye and Rinnegan on the other. This is a trait of SO6P and/or the Six Path of Pain.

Another theory is that he is “The Elder Son“. I don’t actually understand or get this theory. Other suspects who he is, are:

1. He’s Madara’s younger brother
2. Another member of the Uchiha clan
3. One of Rikudo’s Senin’s original disciple
4. He could be Izuna or Nagato

But those theories are far fetch. Last theory is Tobi is really Tobi. Another character who possesses or was given the power of Madara.
UPDATE: I also have a strong feeling that Tobi is Danzō Shimura. When Tobi revealed his Sharingan to Sasuke, he really look like Danzo. Also they are about the same age.

is tobi really madara

But honestly, I think there is only one person who could really give us the correct answer. And that person is most probably be Masashi Kishimoto! ^_^

  1. Tobi can’t be Danzo, he watched Danzo fight Sasuke

    my theory is not far-fetched and simple.toby is really madara;but he is in spirit form,maybe through an unknown jutsu,he was able to separate his spirit from is body and he may have transfered it into another body;that not a new technique,orochimaru use that same proceeding remember?so why not him.moreover,when kabuto summoned madara the first person he mentioned was nagato,so he expected nagato to resucitate him,and toby was dissappointed when he found out that nagato used a technique not on him,and don’t remember what the ninjutsu was.also,what kabuto refered to ‘I’m his assistant,I guess he was refering to orochimaru.

    wot if tobi is really kakashi old friend that give him the eye, well that is jus my theory

  4. I would say the smart money is on Izuna, or someone else entirely. If he is Izuna it would explain how he knows so much about Madara and why he has the sharingan. I really doubt it’s Obito, considering the views he held when he was alive. I mean what possible reason could there be for it to be him? Other than that Tobi and Obito are similar names. And it definitely can’t be Danzo OR Nagato.

    P.S: The reason Tobi has Rinnegan in one eye is because he recovered the eyes from Nagato’s body and replaced the sharingan he lost to izanagi.

      Your probably right. Maybe Tobi is Tobi after all. He might be a clone of Madara or part of him is Madara (or came from Madara). What if, Madara Uchiha is not the big enemy here, instead it’s Tobi.

      Sorry I was not able to update this post lately. But I think Tobi is not really Madara as revealed in the recent chapter of Naruto Manga. Tobi I think is another character and his real plan is Eye of the Moon Plan. ->
      Meanwhile, the real Madara Uchiha has different plans. His plan to to destroy Konoha.

  8. here is the theory behind madara and tobi: after madara’s fight with first hokage, prior to his death, he has awaken the power of his eyes the eternal mangekyo sharingan to rinnegan, the next level of its transformation. this eyes is believe to be of the sage of the six path, who has the power to create imagination into life, as explained earlier with izanagi, thus in short madara re-created himself thru imagination and make that imagination into life that is now tobi, to continue his quest of total control. tobi is madaras self created beast in a form of human, just like the sage of the six path, created the tailed beast.

  9. I think He is A wood person like yamato… Since madara Has the power of the 1st hokage and created him an apprentice or something like that. He maybe inherited the sharingan due to DNA or maybe He Take Madara’s eyes and kill him. I dont know This is just my guess…

  10. No the latest naruto manga identifies Tobi to be obito because when obito got rocks on his body shortly after madara saves him and because of that obits must do what Madura says and when kakashi fights obito and uses his justu were he sucks it up it is the same portal as Toby’s one and obito gave Kakashi’s right sharigan so it was very obviously obito

    1. Hi spin
      Yes we already knew that by now. Tobi is indeed Obito. Check out my latest Naruto related articles. Thanks for dropping by

  11. I come from the future, Tobi is Uchiha Obito
