Updated faq thread now.. If someone claims anything else that person deserves to be date raped by orochimaru.

Although like I mentioned, Tobi has Madara mindset Maybe Madara is in reality a artificial shinobi created by the Data Integration Thought Entity who knows!
He could've gone crazy and thinks its madara... Hell I know a couple of lads that think they are Nappoleon! To them they are..

But with certain I can say: To tobi, he IS madara.

Is he the "real"-deal? Seems so, as Itachi did confirm himself. He might not be as strong as he was 100 years ago, but Itachi got royal screwed by him! So no.. Tobi is not "faking" anything.
