Considering how he had his neck broken before, acid spat on him, I'm guessing no.

Felt like reviving this thread, so...any speculations as to what Zetsu is keeping under his black body mask?

After all, he's the leader; why can't he just sit behind the scenes and direct while the other eight collect the Bijuu's? I just think there's something about him that hasn't been revealed, but is something extremely significant. The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to believe that he's actually the strongest person in the group, or perhaps pulling all the strings somehow.
Okay so this is many many posts later...dunno if someone already said this, but
Pein and Konan grew up together and I think we can infer, somewhat, that they were in a relationship of sorts? Plus when Naruto meets the real Nagato, Konan is right at his side...makes me think that he needed her there for something.

Its probably because his two halves function as partners. Also hes mostly a spy-type ninja who collects data and such...from wat ive seen

Probably from the info Jirayiya gave him...other than that Kakashi has no such info on who Zetsu is.

Unless I'm mistaken, we haven't seen much of the remaining Akatsuki members lately, so it's hard to create new speculation. That being said, re-reading my original post in this thread led me to a new theory about Zetsu's strength, particularly with regards to the remaining Akatsuki; he doesn't seem to have any fear or respect for anyone. Even Madara now has something to fear (Kabuto's return showed us that), but Zetsu still has yet to really be shown as scared of anyone or anything. Concurrently, he doesn't seem to really show any respect for anyone, Madara included. True, perhaps, that none of the Akatsuki ever really had a deep respect for any of the others, but they all at least appeared to act under the orders of Pain. Zetsu just seems to do his own thing most of the time and, though he follows orders when they're given, his two halves seem to be quite at odds with having to even carry out the task. His black half seems --uninterested-- in doing anything that he's told to do, and the white half seems to only try and keep the black half in check. Perhaps there's something more to that...

I won't disagree that they were in some variety of relationship, but I'm led to infer that you are suggesting a romantic relationship, which I don't think existed between them. So far as I can tell, Nagato wanted nothing more from Konan than the protection she could offer by manipulating her paper to blend into the surroundings ala a big tree. He may have needed her protection at some point (perhaps if his machine malfunctioned or something), but he even had weapons hidden within that machine, which I doubt anyone but Naruto could have even survived in the first place.

While I don't disagree, I don't like assuming that him being shown primarily as a spy, means that is all he's capable of. We've seen some of the --theoretically-- best fighters in the story doing recon work, so I don't think it's a stretch to assume that some of the best spys in the story should have some combat potency as well.

Well they grew up together, and were friends, and stuck together through it all.
There are suggestions/hints at either a romance or some kind of relationship behind a business/use relationship. Since they had been together (regardless of relationship status) since BEFORE the Akatsuki was even created I get the feeling there was more to it than he needed her protection and such.

I'm guessing the bodies he eats automatically became his clones. He's also capable of high speed time/space jutsu. That energy leech thing was interesting as well.

He's probably a medic nin. Maybe collaborated with the Kakuzu/Oro to get his current body/abilities.

The fight between Kisame and Bee after the water disappeared is really Zetsu vs Bee. He wasn't much of a fighter then. Of course it could've been orchestrated for him just to lure Raikage and have him get killed, but we don't really have much else to go on.

In essence he's a true ninja though since he actually can sneak around.

There is a definite connection between Madara and Zetsu, that is well known by now, but most of our speculations concerning that connection all stem from Zetsu (specifically, Zetsu found Madara, or Zetsu created Tobi, or Zetsu placed Madara in Obito's dead body, etc), but why does Zetsu have to be the one in control of the relationship? Specifically, why couldn't Madara have created Zetsu? I can offer no evidence to support such a claim (much the same as no one can offer real evidence that Zetsu is at the forfront of the currently exsisting relationship), but it could be very interesting if Zetsu was the one who was created for the relationship...

I agree. There's almost certainly some kind of assimilation thing going on between Madara and Zetsu.

-It would certainly explain why Madara is alive for so long, if he's actually just using Zetsu-created clones for his body. He regenerates or create a new one whenever

- it would explain why Madara considers himself so weakened, as the clones Zetsu creates apparently have reduced strength though they can replicate powers of the original like the doubles Pain creates

- It could explain Tobi's earlier goofy behavior, if he "channels" white Zetsu's personality sometimes (who seems to be the one clones stem from). It could also explain why Zetsu treats Tobi more like a subordinate in his first appearance-- referring to him as a "good boy"--while he treats him as a boss later on. If Madara's newly created bodies have a personality similar to white Zetsu they would act like retards. As they mature, Madara's personality becomes more in control.

That's what I've always assumed. It seems pretty clear to me Madara is the one in charge. Zetsu obviously takes orders from him.
