    Default Chunin exam plot hole?

    Since we seem to be discussing previous naruto chps from way back when i have never understood who the hell crime & punishment were.

    I'm asking about naruto chp 45 when we see orochimaru appearing as a grass genin. he's got two accomplices with him and one of them (punishment) even gives evil (orochimaru's tabard says evil) the order "go after the rookies first".

    The next we get is crime saying "get those 3 first right?" while evil (orochimaru) says "go for the brats".


    Does anyone know who the hell these guys are? my guess is they are shadow clones but then why is he talking to himself? And why do they suddenly disapear right after vol 5 ends and vol 6 begins? (chp 45 and 46).


    again: Who are these two who go by the names crime and punishment?


    edit: check the previous threads and found nothing of this which is why i asked

    I'm pretty sure that that was before Orochimaru commandeered their faces.

    naw, if u read it (rereading the series^^) anko realizes that the whole time the nin who returned her kunai had to have been orochimaru.

    Also they find the bodies of the grass genin later on and mention how they must not have even reached the first exam.

    heres a fairly crapy pic of what the peeps im looking for look like:

    And it wouldn't be a plot hole, since it in no way undermines the plot of Naruto, it just.. well really does nothing

    You're right, that makes no sense at all...barring a couple of extremely far fetched idea that I can come up with.

    anyone else? im startign to wonder if maybe he had an alternate storyline planned but trashed it for this one with orochimaru.

    everything with the exception of kabuto and the sound nin was added after of built onto them.

    it seems extremely far fetched but i cant think of anything else.

    They may have been killed during the chunnin exams, because I believe they split up, so they could of ran into some tougher ninja and were killed. That is the only thing I can come up with.

    but if they were lackies then why did one of them give orochimaru orders? and i have the feeling that even a shadow clone of orochimaru could have easily dealt with any of the genin there.

    But yeah, maybe the secret to this *is* that they split up.

    The world may never know. They could just as easily be the sound five in disguise again. So they could of been killed, left the chunnin exams, or the story changed in mid-production. Kishimoto could of even forgot about them.
