Can't decide between Minato, Naruto, and Jiraiya.
But I guess I'll go with
JiraiyaNagato since too many people think he can beat Itachi and Sasuke when Itachi would most likely win, while Sasuke would likely win.

Hehehehe, I'm going to open the can of worms even though I know this can call for heated debate: Sarutobi Hiruzen.
I never understood what's so great about him. Yes he was awesome back in Part 1. He looked awesome and we thought "how can Naruto really become that awesome?", but compared to the fights in Part 2 his performance is chuunin level. There was nothing Kage Level about him in Part 1 compared to the later story. His speed wasn't fast enough, his techniques are easily countered and not powerful. While his fighting is effective like Kakashi's, he looked like an old man on his last legs (which he was even though he was not THAT old, compare him to Oonoki who is likely much older and you'll see why he looks average in comparison). On top of that Orochimaru was basically toying around with him the whole time until he got owned before the warm up even ended due to his arrogance and playful act. Yes Hiruzen beat both Hashirama and Tobirama, but those two showed nothing of what defined them as monsters, Kishi clearly hadn't fully mapped out their powers and the powers and level of his future villains and good guys when he wrote that fight. A Tobirama using space/time ninjutsu close to the level of Minato would likely murder Hiruzen alone. Yes, Kishi clearly said he was the God of Shinobi, but I'd like to see him beat any of the current Kage that reigned during his time (as well as new ones, particularly Gaara. I think he could easily beat Tsunade, and probably Mei). How on earth would he beat either A or A's father? How would he counter Oonoki's Dust Element? It's simple, he would die.

orochimaru.. the guy sucks if you look at oonoki, raikage, mei, and minato.
I don't even know if I have to explain about my choise. It's not only about personal feelings towards the character, but also about all the hype of him even before the Chunin exam.
Sasuke...he should comite suicide after he almost died twice during fight with Bee. He has no honor :P
Gold and Silver Brothers
I would have to say...... Sasuke. He would have gotten owned by Bee if he did'nt have a team. He would have been crushed by the kages if he didn't have tobi. The only fights I would say that he has won was against Danzou and Naruto and he was really weakened in both the fights.
The manga was young back then, and Kishi probably didn't have any idea of how the enemy would get strong by the end of it...
But, he did hype Hiruzen as the best Kage ever...
And Hiruzen didn't show anything worth being called that...
Hiruzen is the winner (loser?)
Nagato (Pain) (It's one and the same character, if you don't know. Pain bodies were only his puppets, so nothing more than his weapons) Totally overrated, every ANBU and Jounin could easily blow away that freak. :/
Uhm.. Besides a minor set of characters. EVERYONE.
In the end, Kakashi, Yondaime, Pain and Sasuke are the big shots for this category. However, I vote for Sasuke.
Changed my vote to Nagato. He's not as good as people make him out to be, and he's an idiot. People overrate him and his fighting abilities in my opinion when Nagato is nothing without his Rin'negan or whatnot.
Sad thing is, he spams his Rin'negan more than Sasuke spams his Sharingan but he gets away with it. Though, Rin'negan is all he has.
