"The Best Death"
Making a great death is certainly one of Kishimoto's speciality. The death of the one who went by many titles : the Sennin of the Legendary Sannins, the Toad Demon of Myoubokuzan Moutain, the "Erosennin", was no exception to the rules.
The Gold Medal goes to...

There aren't too many deaths in Naruto.
So, I will start by nominating : Jiraya's Sequel.
The Sequel deaths i.e. Nagato and Jiraiya, along with Konan and Yahiko. It was symbolic in a sense.
Jiraiya's death was pretty awesome. I don't count Itachi's death as awesome because he poked Sasuke's forehead and passed away. We didn't even know anything about that until way later after the fight. Though, Sarutobi's death could be considered good as well.
it can only be jiraiya's.
I nominate Jiraiya he deserves the best death, being able to gather his last energy to write that information on the frog, and his ever soo depressing fall at the bottom of the ocean thinking of a title for his next book.
I agree Jiraiya had the best death, he died from his former student and acknowledged/believed in Naruto before his demise. It was honorable indeed.
Itachi's death was also quite markable. But the drama in it gets destroyed by him being "alive" again.
jiraiya or hiruzen or danzou.
jiraiya- the saddest.
hiruzen- the bravest.
danzou- went out with a bang respect!
I would go with Third Hokage's.
I was really crying when he died, especially after seeing it in the anime. They really made it look really touching.
And I pick Kisame...I didn't expect him to do that and I was sad cause I wanted him to show us some more badass stuff.
Jiraiya, it was the most saddening since he died for a greater good while having the chance to escape, meaningful since it was his death that made Naruto man up, and the most awesome, since he refused to die until he managed to relay his message to Konoha, thus enabling Naruto to defeat Pein/Nagato.
I also liked Danzou's death, he was a true shinobi, and the last panel with his and Sarutobi was damn good too
Tough one between Itachi and Jiraiya. I would have to say Jiraiya, since his fight was against a VERY powerful enemy.
