Naruto shippuden: 14 Things That Could Have Happened If Obito Did Manage To Save Rin

Obito and Rin are two side characters from Naruto Shippuden.  
Naruto is part of the Big Three Anime of all time along with One Piece and Bleach

Obito Uchiha is one of the most popular hero turned villain from Naruto Shippuden. 

Rin’s death had a profound impact on Obito Uchiha and played a pivotal role in shaping his character and motivations.

Obito has shown all the shades there are of an anime character. 

Obito shows his innocent dream of becoming the Hokage of the hidden leaf village as a kid. 

He shows his cold and cruel side when he kills Minato and Konan. 

He shows his funny side when he desiges himself as Tobi. 

He shows his villainous side in the Fourth Great Ninja War. 

He even shows his sharp intellect to everyone when he turns out to be the mastermind behind the Fourth Great Ninja War, Minato’s death and even assisting Itachi in the Uchiha Masssacre. 

Rin’s death plays a crucial role in deciding the path Obito chooses to move forward with. 

So I wonder how things might have turned out if he did manage to save Rin.

What Do The Deaths In Naruto Signify? 
Kakashi’s guilt over Rin’s death was a defining aspect of his character.During a mission, Rin was captured by enemy shinobi and had a Three-Tails (Sanbi) beast sealed inside her against her will.

Faced with the prospect of the Three-Tails being unleashed upon their village, Rin chose to die by Kakashi’s hand, running into his chidori technique.

If Rin had been saved, Kakashi would have been relieved of this burden, leading to a different development in his personality and motivations.


Minato Will Not Sacrifice Himself To Protect The Village From The Nine Tails Attack 
During the attack, the masked man known as Tobi (later revealed to be Obito Uchiha) helped orchestrate the event, unleashing the Nine-Tails on the village.
Minato and his wife, Kushina Uzumaki, fought to protect their newborn son from the rampaging beast. In a desperate attempt to save the village and Naruto, Minato chose to use the Dead Demon Consuming Seal technique.
Using this powerful sealing jutsu, Minato sealed half of the Nine-Tails’ chakra within himself, and the other half inside Naruto.
In the process, Minato lost his life, leaving Naruto orphaned and the village devastated.
All these things could have been avoided if Obito managed to save Rin.

Naruto Will Not Have Kurama 
Obito Uchiha, as the masked man known as Tobi, later revealed himself to be behind the attack on Konoha that led to Kurama being unleashed and attacking the village.
Obito manipulated events to create a chain of events that would result in Naruto gaining control over Kurama’s power and ultimately becoming a jinchuriki who could harness the Nine-Tails’ strength.

Naruto Wouldn’t Be Raised As An Orphan
Without the influence of his parents, Minato Namikaze (Fourth Hokage) and Kushina Uzumaki, Naruto grows up alone and isolated in the Hidden Leaf Village.
He faces constant discrimination and ostracism from the villagers due to the presence of the Nine-Tailed Fox sealed within him.

Yahiko Will Be Saved As The Other Akatsuki Members Will Show Up In Time To Back Them Up
Obito orchestrated a scenario where he framed Nagato for attacking Konoha, leading to a confrontation between Yahiko and Nagato.
In an emotional and tense moment, Yahiko sacrificed himself, requesting that Nagato kill him to prevent further violence and protect their shared dream of peace.
Obito’s manipulation of Yahiko and the circumstances surrounding his death were part of his larger plan to set Nagato on a path of despair and vengeance.
Obito aimed to use Nagato’s immense power as the leader of Akatsuki, known as Pain, to further his own ambitions.

Minato Will Not Let The Uchiha Massacre Take Place
Obito’s transformation into Tobi played a significant role in the Uchiha Clan’s downfall and the events leading to the Uchiha massacre.
If Obito had remained on the right path, he might have been able to reconcile with the Uchiha, potentially preventing the tragedy altogether.
The Akatsuki Of The Motive Of Capturing Tailed Beasts Will Not Be Formed
Obito’s involvement in the formation of the Akatsuki was driven by his desire for revenge and a warped sense of justice.
If Rin had been saved, Obito may not have felt the need to create the Akatsuki or carry out his plan to create a world of illusions.

Pain Will Not Kill Jiraiya

The Fourth Great Ninja War Will Never Take Place
Obito’s manipulation of the Fourth Great Ninja War was central to the conflict. Without his involvement as Tobi, the dynamics of the war would have shifted dramatically.
It’s possible that the war might not have escalated to the same extent or could have taken a different course.

Madara Uchiha Will Never Be Revived By Obito By Using The Renne Rebirth 
Rin’s death served as the catalyst for Obito’s descent into darkness and his eventual alignment with the villainous organization known as Akatsuki.
It fueled his desire for revenge and his ambition to reshape the world according to his own vision.
All these things could have happened if Obito managed to save Rin but that’s not how things turned out, did they. Everything that Obito does from that moment onwards are an aftermath of Rin’s death.
If she wouldn’t have died then Obito could never become the Heroic character who we all love.
Obito would have never shown all his different shades to us that I talked about in the beginning.
Without Rin’s death Obito would have never realized his true potential. Rin gets all the credit for Obitos’s success. So it wouldn’t be fair to nagate her death like this.
