@MrASSH0LE: Are you deliberately being hard headed, or did I not explain this simply enough? (Sorry if that is a bit rude, I just dont enjoy having to reapeat something more than once)
Tobi w/ Sharingan and Rinnegan no Six Paths
That CLEARLY means that he does not have the 6 bodys he used to host his 6 paths, since the Rinnegan itself allows the use of the 6 paths why then would he give him the rinnegan and then say "Oh but he cant use it". Its not that hard to understand, and once again why he will never use the Biju Dama against Father.
You're saying the guy with the hypersonic reaction time will be impaled that way?
When last I checked the Sharingan can only track movements of what it can see, and Father can transmute without moving at ALL. Besides Tobi will not be looking at the ground if his opponent is right in front of him now is he? Hence why he will be stabbed in the chest by the earth beneath him. If you would rather, he could transmute his mask to impale his face instead?
The second he tries to attack he will be transmuted into a chair, Father fired a casual blast that nearly wiped out all of Central HQ, not to mention he can survive molecular deconstruction. NOTHING Tobi can do will harm Father at all. Given that to soul suck he has to touch him which would lead to his instant deconstruction. What will animal path do for him? He has only ever shown the ability to summon Kurama and nothing else so what good will that do him?
No, before he died they said he could not contain the stone and if Tobi was able to get as close to Father he could BFR him.
And that is different from what I said how? I said he lost the remaining souls in his PS through the method I described, which is WHY he became unstable. I already mentioned the Gate like 3 times now, Father is more than able to return to the battlefield with it so once again, BFR will not work.
The Shinra tensei as we know levels cities and the chibaku tensei levels surpasses mountains in size.
And with prep Father came close to destroying a country... whats your point. I already said that if he trys to use either he will transmuted, given the length of time it takes to use Chibaku Tensei he will be dead before it takes effect. His only viable attack is Shinra Tensei (And he has not even used it yet), given that it is the strongest attack he can use currently. And once again he has to become Tangible to use it, which would once again let Father transmute him. Besides A Shinra Tensei on Town scale would leave him weak and unable to use it which would put him at an even bigger disadvantage
He goes to use Chibaku Tensei, suddenly he has been transmuted into a statue. He trys to Shinra Tensei, suddenly he has been turned into a chair. As for his speed, it wont matter since any direct contact with Father would lead to his deconstruction, and Fathers attacks would not need travel time so they would be almost impossible to avoid unless you knew they were coming.
In essence Tobi cant attack at all, or he will be subject to his transmutation. Or and I only say this because this would be the easiest method, he could just transmute the air into methane which would leave Tobi screwed if he tried to attack, since he would need to breath and all of a sudden he cant.
And in regards to Tobi being weak when compaired to state alchemists, I never said he was. You are the one who is saying that, not me. Was it implied by me? No, I just said that it took Greed with his power of carbonization to weaken him, to enable Ed to punch a hole through his chest and cause him to lose his souls and become unstable. Unless Tobi has a way to get rid of 1,000,000 souls, without touching him and only going tangible for a select few seconds at a time, Then Father will kill him. His Intangibility is only going to make him last longer. He has nothing that can put Father down, and while Tobi does have the speed advantage it will not do much since he does not have the destructive power to make it worth while, or the durability to survive any of his attacks, let alone deconstruction without the use of Izanagi, which he can only use once mind you. Unless tobi can deal with Fathers PS then he is unable to win, and given that Tobi's strongest attack is Shinra Tensei he would not need much to defend himself since his forcefields were tanking bullets, missiles and mustangs flame alchemy at the same time. While they might not stand up to a Shinra Tensei they could tank a good portion of the force from the attack. And then you have the 5 second rule leaving him open to transmutation directly after the attack. And that is only if he managed to get the attack off before Father turned him into gold.
As for the gate Father can open the gate without needing to transmute a country he only done that because he needed to absord God (Or the truth if you will), hell Ed only tried to bring his mother back and he opened the gate. Given that Father has 1,000,000 souls im more than certain he can open the Gate if he wished. As for the Truth part of it, The gate shows you the Truth of what you wish to see, and if this is Fathers Third form then he absorbed the Eye of God which is a seemingly omnipotent being that exists on the other side of the gate. Going by that im sure he will find a way out with 1,000,000 souls at his disposal.
Edit: Unless im mistaken your point about the Jinchuriki's were that they couldnt use the Paths. And that scan just said that Tobi didnt want to waste the chakra on the Paths Jutsu, meaning that they could he just didnt want to use them.
