well itachi can own obito as well. Kakashi is only fighting on par with obito because he discovered the flaw in obito's jutsu.

Unless you're gonna post that page when he says "Now that Itachi's gone my plans can go unopposed." In which case you're wrong, and don't bother. This implies that Itachi could impede his plans. NOT that he was superior to him.
Itachi did nothing for Obito other than delay his plans. Obito didn't gain a single advantage for keeping Itachi alive. Itachi was absolutely useless, therefore he was completely replacable for Obito. Seeing how the story progressed so far, Obito had no reason to keep Itachi alive. If he was certain that he could take him out, he would have done it for sure.
Why keep Itachi alive?
- Capture Bijuus? Did Itachi capture a Bijuu on his own for Akatsuki? Was he the only one in Akatsuki who could capture a Bijuu?
- Seal Bijuus? Was he the only one in Akatsuki who could do this?
- Sasuke? What did Sasuke achieve for Akatsuki what other members couldn't? Notice that Obito wanted to cast Mugen Tsukuyomi in this arc and till now everything what Sasuke did was to deliver a tentacle of the Hachibi.
I can't think of a single reason why he would keep Itachi alive, if he could take him on. Itachi wins 20 times out of 10. Yes, you read it right. 20 wins for Itachi in 10 fights, lolz.
The only thing Itachi would need to worry about Obito is Kamui. He would also figure out Kamui's mechanics in, at least, half the time Kakashi did it. I imagine he'd also come up fast with a strategy to render it useless. All that aside from the fact that Obito was afraid of him to the point he considered himself dead, if they ever crossed fists.
The Amaterasu trap is a regular shot of Amaterasu, something Itachi is fully capable of doing upon his own.
Once more, Itachi being alive was unprofitable for Obito. His plans were delayed and he didn't gain a single benefit. Many thought that Sasuke would play a major role in Obito's plans, but that was proven wrong the instant Obito wanted to cast Mugen Tsukuyomi and all Sasuke did so far for Obito was delivering the Hachibi tentacle.
Why wouldn't Itachi win? Because of Izanagi? Because of Kamui? Look at Obito's performance throughout the manga. Nearly every opponent hit him one way or the other, it's not even funny considering he has a space/time Jutsu, intangibility and Izanagi. Itachi was only hit once in the manga if I recall. It was only Obito's great luck that he didn't face a shinobi with legendary weapons, Izanami, Clones he won't notice, Tsukuyomi and so on. If Obito gets hit in a fight against Itachi, he will be a goner. He was already hit by opponents far weaker than Itachi. If they can hit Obito, you can be sure that Itachi can do the same. And Itachi won't infect him with nano insects or cut an arm of him. No, he will seal him with the Totsuka Sword or trap him in Izanami, where Obito will have a lot of time thinking about how dumb he was doing the shit he did because of a mere crush and why the hell he challenged a prodigy of the Uchiha Clan.

Sasuke supose to have been Nagato's replacement. Basically, Obito was going to use Sasuke to revive Madara... That's seem like a good reason.
Sasuke was recruited before Nagato's defeat/death. So this point is actually moot, since Obito was also surprised that Nagato betrayed him and used Rinne Tensei on Konohagakure.
Did nothing for him?Originally Posted by syx
He recruited Deidara, one of their most powerful members. And he did it easily.
There's no reason at all why he should limit his amount of able subordinates. He had other members who could capture bijuu, but why not have multiple so that multiple bijuu could be captured at the same time, shortening the wait? He didn't need to capture one on his own to be a help either. He could give information that allows the others to capture one, or simply aid another member. Why do you think he was sent with Kisame (didn't choose, was sent) to capture Naruto?Quote:
Because he had the strongest Bijuu, and because Itachi had first-hand knowledge of the village. Obito was still hiding his identity and couldn't simply wander into the village at this point as Tobi, since he was Deidara's partner.
It took the combined chakras of EVERY Akatsuki member to pull off removing a Bijuu from it's host and place it into the Gedo Mazo. If Itachi had left, someone else would've needed to cover his spot, and it isn't like they have an over-abundance of S-rank missing nin they could recruit.Quote:
It was what he was intended to be: either a sacrifice to revive Madara (assumption), or he would be the one with the 6 paths technique that Obito is using, as he states in he manga that he had planned on fusing Sasuke with the Gedo Mazo. Itachi likely didn't have the stamina for something like this, or was simply more of a threat than Sasuke. Though I doubt that's the reason as if he had chosen Sasuke Itachi would've attacked him anyway...Quote:
Ofcourse this is based on what happens after Nagato is dead. Before Nagato's death Obito already had an entire mausoleum full of Sharingan so he likely wanted Sasuke's aswell. Sasuke's is the last one out there he can gain access to. Why ignore them when he could get to them via Itachi?
Then do yourself a favor, since it proves nothing: stop posting it. For one, that link isn't working, so I had to use narutobase to read the entire chapter again to see where ANYTHING AT ALL implied that Itachi was superior to Obito.Originally Posted by KingOfNight
And a sneak attack applied when he was dead certainly isn't it.

Itachi wasn't sent to capture Naruto. He went to the village to remind Danzou and the Elders that he is alive. That's fact.
Not to mention that Itachi being alive wasn't necessary for Obito to either get his hands on Sasuke or sync him with the Mazo.
Why did you mention Itachi? Itachi was never an option for the Mazo, since Obito knew that Itachi is not loyal to Akatsuki.
To sum up: Itachi did nothing what other members couldn't do. Akatsuki proved to be able to recruit other ninjas. Therefore Itachi was replaceable. He was only a hindrance to Obito's plans. Obito didn't gain a single advantage for keeping him alive.

But would Itachi have known Izanagi was being used, even if he knew about it? Even Tobi didn't recognize it right off the bat when Danzou was using Izanagi.
I don't see how keeping Itachi alive was unprofitable for Tobi since Itachi didn't hinder the capture of the jinchuuriki or the operations of Akatsuki. Not only that, but Itachi probably played a major part in Sasuke getting Mangekyo and being "used" by Tobi and was close to attacking Konoha and fighting Naruto. In fact, Tobi probably thought Sasuke was the only one who could fight Naruto but he definitely was interested in seeing them collide.
obito always say that he was a trouble ninja, in any case, itachi vs obito, they would make a good fight. but itachi take the win......i mean itachi can figure out jutsu fast and make a counter. after the jutsu is figure out. obito is done. i know obito could scape amateratsu. but can he scape tsukuyomi and even if he do. could he be a 100%. also itachi is a really skill ninja with shuriken and and clone....i have never see someone to use clone better then itachi..
we all see what obito was capable off. and we was not impress
