One of the reasons why Tobi isn't using Rin'negan, as we saw, is because it uses chakra, something that Tobi can't spare a lot of because he's controlling the jinchuuriki and bijuu. or rather, he was. Plus, he'd be a lot more dangerous because he can phase through stuff and has Sharingan.
Madara is using Rin'negan to an extent, but I guess it's pride reasons that he's not using it as much as he is Sharingan, especially because he's mocking the kage for not being able to make him resort to Rin'negan. He even took a jutsu to the shoulder for lulz and to show Hashirama's face on his chest. Naruto has little to no chance of beating Madara considering Madara has two powerful doujutsu, can use Mokuton, and is probably one of the most powerful Uchiha with more battle experience than any other shinobi, maybe except for Oonoki.
to use Nagato as a measurement to see how Naruto would fare against other Rin'negan users is pretty bad considering they all have different powers.
And lulz at the irony of Uchiha using cheats.
kabuto has got a lot of reasons to escape from izanami:
1)he adfirmed that he is immune to every illusion;
2)he has got a snake that should be excellent to counter illusions,and it hasn't done anything yet...
3)itachi wants to kill him,but Urushi's presence implies that kabuto will meet him again
4)madara mustn't be stopped,because that would allow dan to meet tsunade and to show us his evanescence technique.
and the list goes on...
i just dont see kabuto standing up to naruto right now naruto has his dads speed and even more power
kabuto would be destroyed, i honestly dont think the fight would be very close
in fact, i would argue that naruto in the sage toad mode, would beat kabuto in the sage snake mode
Regardless, Kabut should not be done here & Itachi should fail. If Itachi does indeed talk to Sasuke I cannot see Sasuke going back to his destroy Konoha phase. So imo, Kabuto somehow escapes Izanagi, maintains ET Madara going & somehow seals/defeats Itachi in front of Sasuke seconds before their ''talk''.
I doubt Itachi will fail. Itachi's like Minato, Kishi isn't gonna allow him to fail. Sasuke could just as easy maintain his current feeling even after knowing the truth, depending on what that truth is. If it's similar to what is currently known, then Sasuke would have little reason to change his mind. Not that it would matter. Sasuke doesn't have to want to destroy Konoha for the plot to move forward. The only thing that matters plotwise is him fighting Naruto.
Naruto's sage mode would nullify kabuto's sensory disruption. That's because Naruto would be able to use nature chakra to sense his surroundings. There would be clones hidden elsewhere giving Naruto an advantage against it. Also Naruto's kyubbi mode is able to sense Ill intent so Im not so sure kabuto could win against him since that's his trump card besides Edo tensei which Naruto clearly has mopped up. As to the next chapter I think it should return to more interesting battles. Even the ones where Naruto didn't finish off some Edo tensei characters. Such as that guy who split himself leaving his chakra low despite being an Edo tensei.
Kabuto is impressive enough to be a member of the Akatsuki, but I don't think he is strong enough to take out either Sasuke or Naruto. Most of this fight has focussed on Itachi and his Izanami.
I think Sasuke needs a few power-ups or an opportunity to show-off to be considered a match for Naruto, but I would take him over Kabuto any-day. Nothing about Sasuke's character seems interested in this fight. In fact, Sasuke has no real stake in this. There has been a back forth between Sasuke and Itachi that has been like "Can we kill him, yet?" Itachi replies, "No! I must stop the Edo Tensei." Give Kishi more credit. There is more to Kishi's battles than just the fight.
This should not be a fight used for comparisons between Sasuke and the other characters. This is a final judgement on Kabuto. Kabuto is getting owned by his own jutsu. Kabuto's character was so pathetic that he has been given the element of surprise, the locational "home court" advantage, ass-pull out of nowhere jutsu, instant regeneration, immunity to genjutsu, and the fact that "he can't die because of the Edo Tensei" and he still cannot win this fight.
Who the F would lose if you gave them all of those advantages? Two conclusions: 1) Sharingan is GOD in this MANGA and don't forget it - or - 2) Kabuto is the biggest loser we have ever seen.
Also you aparently missed this (about the Kages landing blows and what not):
You can't hit him with shit aside from your fists.
Tobi was controling the jins. When he does that he can't also use rinnegan techs. It was stated by Kakashi and confirmed by Tobi.
Of course in the end you can also go with plot no jutsu. Happened before ... Naruto getting into range with a clone of Madara's/Tobi's/Nagato's would mean that thy can activate the shield and absorb the clone. They can do that to ANY jutsu even FRS so where is the logic lol.
Nagato showed to instantly drain Bee in lvl 2 with 8 tails... So again what do you think?
ORIGINAL. It was not a clone. That one that had 2 rasengans was the clone.
Kabuto can't dodge. Look here:
Look from the 5 biju's bomb perspective. Where is he suposed to dodge? Its bigger (way bigger) then 5 biju's put togeder... THERE IS NO DODGE, there is no 10m to the left. We have 10 miles to the left. Aimed at the ground is going to anihilate Kabuto.
Now i will put it simple. What feats of durability, regen, absorbing chakra and whatever else do you have from him that would put him close to surviving that? Its more then absurd. Kabuto get's anihilated. A 4 tails would have killed Orochimaru.
Sry but its 1 shoot 1 skill. When Naruto shoot it the damn thing was ripping the ground as it was moving... I am not even giving Kabuto the benefit of the doubt.
