I want to see Sage+Kurama fusion next(which Naruto should know how to do already cause he did something similar vs Nagato)
Physically, Toad Senjutsu seems to be the strongest as others have already stated. Overall, I'm pretty sure they are even. Like Jiraya and Orochimaru they focus there specialties in different areas. As someone mentioned earlier, Toad Senjutsu is for strength and Snake Senjutsu is for those who prefer finesse. If Kishi actually allowed Kabuto and Naruto to fight, we could have probably seen the differences more clearly. Also I don't know if anyone mentioned this but, IFRC, the reason why Kabuto could stay in his Sage form longer was because the cave was full of natural chakra.
i am talking naruto as he defeated pain, with strictly frog-fu and the giant rasen-shuriken that he could throw
i dont think kabuto could have defeated pain, in fact i dont think it would have been close, pain would have demolished him
snake most likely. And it's not "snake mode", is the "dragon mode", and yes, it simply sounds stronger than toad's!
It's difficult to say but I would pick Kabuto's Dragon Sage for obvious reasons. What he shown and accomplish against the Uchiha brothers was stellar. The match isn't entirely over yet either.
1) The Kyuubi's chakra was literally controlled by the Kyuubi. Naruto could only harness small portions of it without the Kyuubi's help, never once was he in full control above 1 tailed mode while fighting Sasuke. He had limited control up until 3 tails, and then at the forth tail all hell broke loose.
2) Naruto's transformations were controlled by him either A) Being weak or dying, or B) being under high emotional stress, where the Kyuubi could then take advantage of his weak mind. That is completely opposite of how Sage Mode and Natural Energy works.
3) Natural Energy is not chakra. The Kyuubi's chakra is sinister and actually toxic, Natural Energy is not. When combined with regular chakra, Natural Energy can create Sage Chakra, but it is not in and of itself a form of chakra, it simply another form of energy. So, for someone like Naruto who didn't have great chakra control, harnessing natural energy may be easier for him.
4) Naruto never had to balance the Kyuubi chakra until he aquired RK Mode. Once he did that he had to balance chakra, but as we saw, the Kyuubi actually let him use more and more of his chakra without pulling back Naruto's, hence why Naruto's RK never seemed limited like Bee thought it should be.
As of the name suggests snake seems more powerful, but the earth's most poisonous animal is a frog(poison dart frog), which can kill its enemy by just touching it. So it seems how the power is applied. Snake and Frog Sage both have different sets of power and as always its based on the wielder that it would give its power. Generally i would say snake should be more powerful. But Naruto would be the special case where the Toad Sage is made stronger than Snake sage mode.
