Please tell me what can Sarutobi do against Sage Mode or Kyuubi mode...he must have something...too bad that sometimes the power gap is too big, despite the difference in battle experience and jutsu arsenal...like Sasuke vs Danzou

I'm going to answer this with a singular statement.
Onoki has a bloodline expansion an ability so rare and powerful that it takes someone with the same bloodline expansion to counter it. Onoki can fly, turn people to stone with a touch and disintergrate people and entire islands with a single jutsu. A is the fastest shinobi currently in existence, he was able to dodge ameratsu and he's able to fight on par with a host in full control of his tailed beast. Those are just two of the Kage that ruled at the same time as Hiruzen.
Despite all of their abilities and talents, speed and power, Hiruzen even as an old shell of his former self was considered stronger than them.
He's the main character and yeah we all love him, but I think Naruto is getting far too much credit in this match up. Hiruzen was a veteran of Three Ninja world wars.
...I dunno, it seems pretty obvious to me.
I just want to note that sarutobi at his old age was considered the strongest kage among all the villages: that includes oonoki, raikage, mizukage, etc
I'd also like to point out that that's just heresay until such a point that Sarutobi shows skill and strength that matches the hype.
Hanzou was unbeatable until Pein came along, and then we saw him actually fight and he was hardly impressive. I won't rely on hype to give someone the benefit of the doubt. Only shown feats.
I don't think sarutobi was considered the strongest of the kages in his old age, I think that applied to his younger self. based on what we saw, I really cannot imagine sarutobi actually winning against oonoki or the raikage honestly. heck, I would find that a little hard to believe against any of the kages for the most part as evidently sarutobi was way to far from his prime. Is there any department in which the sarutobi could possibly compete against a? I would find it absurd for old sarutobi to be anywhere near the raikage in terms of speed for one thing. Even if sarutobi does land a hit, how much would that accomplish? Raikage's lightning armor was more than capable of reflecting sasuke kusanagi sword, I honestly doubt we saw anything from sarutobi which would pack enough of a punch. I can't even see sarutobi winning against oonoki here. Oonoki is the older one probably but in turn age has clearly have a greater effect on onooki than on sarutobi. Oonoki has maintained his attack power because his KG has that much attack power and his mobility has been maintained by his flying technique. in turn sarutobi just has a normal shinobi's body and his speed and stamina have decreased much from his younger days as the manga repeatedly stated. I honestly don't believe sarutobi would have been able to take orochimaru alone without the death god seal.
If this was young sarutobi we were talking about then things would be dramatically different but that is not the case at all. Sarutobi has shown nothing in his old age which suggests he would win against the other kages or even against HM or jinchuiriki naruto. don't get me wrong, sarutobi did show some pretty high level ninjutsu but nothing which would be uncommon in a fight involving kages or extremely high leveled ninja.
I think Sarutobi in his prime could beat Naruto, but old Sarutobi doesn't stand much of chance.

You keep saying this over and over again, Hiruzen did not learn the dead demon seal from Minato, he already knew the seals, get it over with.
Sorry Sarutobi, but eventhough you are strong and smart as hell, you simply do not have a technique, that could even hurt Naruto. And you will not use dead demon seal, so it is stated, you lose...
Now that my dogg Naruto has aquired the ''body flicker technique'' it's his win and his tournment.Vote has been casted.
If you've not seen the goodies..that is issue 544?If not go to mangareader to get your Naruto fix...lol.If you troll
Naruto and a big sasuke fan,don't bother.You'll only start hating pmsl.
Naruto now has the body flicker technique and it's offical.Raikage Tsunade and Bee have all confirmed it, lmfao now.
He's gonna walk the bloody tournment now.And i can't wait to see some of the bogus arguments that will ensue.
Naruto vs Minato pmsl.That's all..abit child like i know.Still i told you so!
