Naruto 646 reveals information on the Sage of Six Paths, as well as information based on how everything came to be. Madara reveals that all power came from the God Tree, in which the Ten Tails is in. From a primitive race, there was war, a princess called Ootsutsuki Kaguya ate a fruit belonging to the God Tree and gained chakra power to which she stopped the war. She gave birth to a son which also had chakra abilities. The boy was called Ootsutsuki Bagoromo, he was the Sage of Six Paths! Madara wishes to use the God Tree in order to make his Infinite Tsukuyomi.
Naruto 646 begins as the Ten Tail’s eyes close, from there a seed like thing appears. Obito brings down the barriers to which the seed allows for tremendous growth of a large tree. As the tree grows, it searches for anyone and everyone around the area with chakra, it even hits Minato. It touches them and in an instance it sucks out their chakra. Everyone begins to run but are eventually captured.
Bee seems to have quite a few tree’s trying to get him, Gyuki explains that this is the Shinju (God Tree), the final form of the Juubi. The chakra that Naruto gave to everyone will be nothing but useless. Both Hashirama and Madara fight, Hashirama asks what is that thing. Madara begins to explain that all chakra belonged to the Shinji (God Tree), all the chakra surrounding them, even Hashirama’s belong to him.
Madara explains that man took chakra from the Shinju (God Tree), therefore the owner is simple taking back what is rightfully his. Madara begins to explain that a long time ago, people didn’t even know about chakra, they were just having war, the Shinju was not affected by this, it instead was worshipped as a host of a god. One day a fruit grew, in which it only grows once every millennium. They were instructed never to lay a single finger on it.
The princess saw the amount of war and conflict there was, to which she took the fruit and ate it. Her name was Ootsutsuki Kaguya. She was able to gain chakra powers to which she ended all conflicts. She had a child who also wielded chakra. However the Shinju was not happy about this, due to this the Juubi came to be. It’s also known that the person who tamed it was the son of Kaguya, his name was Ootsutsuki Bagoromo, this was founding father of all shinobi and the man that taught them about chakra. Otherwise known as the Sage of the Six Paths!
Hashirama asks how he knows this, Madara explains that it was all written in the Stone Tablets. Madara mentions that man tried getting their hands on the fruit, thus nothing changed, in fact it only made things worse. Madara explains that during this point he learnt the truth, in that world true dream is nothing more than an illusion. Once they consumed the fruit they became cursed.
Madara mentions that there is nothing more and that all shinobi’s are proof that nothing will change. Hashirama asks if this is what he meant a long time ago when he mentions dreams of the future. The Shinju (God Tree) grows large and has a rose like feature on its top. Madara mentions that when the Shinju blooms, the eye in the flower will reflect all the moon and during that moment, the Infinite Tsukuyomi will be complete, and the person to complete this will definitely be Madara himself.
Naruto tries to escape but unfortunately the tree keeps on chasing him. There are simply too many. Tobirama asks if he can teleport to Naruto, Minato says that he cannot when Tobirama jumps. Out of nowhere Hiruzen jumps and smashes the branch of tree attached to him. He grabs Naruto and quickly goes to another place.
Naruto and the others appears where Sasuke is, Naruto notices that number of dead people at this point. Everyone keeps on running, however they have no chance. Obito tells them to just lay there. As their suffering will soon coming to an end, this is whilst the massive Shinju stretches above the sky. Naruto 646 ends here.
