--Fight Takes Place Outside of Sunagakure
--Kabuto has every edo tensei (even Madara)
--The Fight only ends once Kabuto is dead, and all Edo's or immobilized/sealed/released
--No Technique is restricted
--If Itachi tries to Genjutsu Naruto or a clone of his, he gets KotoAmatsuki'd
--Assume Torune and Fu can do any technique shown by their clan (because of lack of techs shown)
I shudder to imagine what kind of hell they'll dish out at Kabuto at the beginning of the fight to stop him from using Edo Tensei, a blitz from Naruto and Ee, an Amaterasu and a Kamui to the face, a Jinton on his butt while sand would keep him still.
I don't think he can form even the single handseal necessary to summon Edo Tenseis when you have one-shot killers such as Ee, Oonoki, Naruto, Sasuke and Kakashi.
I'll elaborate on it later though
As one sided as it may seem, Kabuto in Sage mode is extremely dangerous. I honestly doubt he could get blitzed. Its like he has a 24/7 active evolved form of the sharingan on and environmental control.
But a team with Oonoki in it is really dangerous with how annoyingly powerful and ranged his Jinton is. If and only If Kabuto summons Madara, Itachi, Nagato and The 3rd Raikage in time, this could seriously end up being a stomp because its 18v1 for a short time.
If by having every single Edo you meant that they are already summoned, then il come back and elaborate later. I think Kabuto could win with his Edos though if he takes care of Naruto, Oonoki and possibly Sasuke in time.
Well, if Kabuto gets the coffins out he wins...
Madara, Nagato, Kabuto and Itachi would already be a ridiculously broken combo... and stuff like Hanzo, Kimimaro, Second Mizukage etc. etc. also wrecking havoc would pretty much seal the deal. The only question is if Kabuto manages to get out the coffins before he gets obliterated... and I think with his puddle mode, spliting into snakes etc. he should be able to pull it off.
Thats of course assuming Team 1 knows that Kabuto is going to use Edo Tensei and thus in turn they go all out right from the first second. If they don't and leave him some time to act, then it almost turns into a stomp... all Kabuto needs to do is run away and leave his immortal army behind to do the dirty work.
Between the abilities of Team Taka and Sound Five, not only would Kabuto be capable of taking any blow they threw at his, but he would likely have the means to trap most of his opponents even before he called forth the Edo summons.
If Kabuto is given the opportunity to summon an Edo, he wins. However, he is very unlikely to be given the chance. He just doesn't have the ability to withstand the combined might he faces. Add that to the fact that Orochimaru probably has extensive knowledge on most of what Kabuto offers, I don't see Kabuto being given the chance to do pretty much anything.
How doesn't he have the ability to withstand? Except for maybe Onoki, none of his opponents would have the means to do any real damage to his body given the combined power of Suigetsu and Karin's abilities. Add to that his ability to transform into a bunch of snakes, and he should be able to buy plenty of time to do what he needs. Not to mention that if he uses Tayuya's genjutsu, he'll be able to prevent them from moving for at least a little while.
Still it would be interesting to withness a battle between a Kabuto not limited by plot ( so not a retard that uses the Edo so that the good guys can win ) and everyone else, I don't think Kabuto can lose that way though, him + Madara + Nagato + Itachi is a fearsome combo indeed

Anyway, the point was, that unless they could mount an complete offensive right off the bat, Kabuto would have more then enough time to summon forth some Edo summons and take a backseat in the fight. It only takes a moment, as shown when Kabuto made his deal with Tobi and summoned the former Akatsuki while dodging backwards.
And I agree, it only takes a moment for Kabuto to summon his Edos. I just don't think this line-up is going to allow him even that.
Kabuto was able to keep up and evade against Sasuke and Itachi, meaning at best the only two that would prove troublesome speedwise would be Ee at max speed and full cloaked Naruto, only one who possesses a ranged attack. His Sage senses would allow him to evade everyone else and the Sound Five's abilities would allow him to take down multiple opponents.
I notice everybody talking about how Kabuto can be defeated... but I have yet to see any mention of his ETs...
Like do you think they will kill Kabuto with his Zombies still rampaging... or kill him first and then seal him...
--Upon rereading... I notice that you guys are saying that Kabuto wouldn't get the chance to summon the ETs... well I agree on that for the most part... and anyone who has argued that to this point I also agree with... But I'll go ahead and make it clear, Kabuto can't beat them by himself, and since everyone has made points which I agree with, in all following post include the Edo Tensei in your arguments just to make the thread a lil bit interesting...
