So it goes the same for kabuto, talking to the uchiha's brother wouldn't cost him a senjutsu chakra. His sage mode isn't some sort of a timing bomb that would stop/explode/gone after his limit time. His sage chakra would remain inside of his body until he use it.
Gathering/absorbing natural energy takes time. Mixing of spiritual energy, physical energy and natural energy can't happen in an instant. That's why it needs a proper balance and concentration. That's the reason why jugo's clans go berserk. They can't control/balance their natural energy. Now, kabuto already perfected that ability, so he can't absorb the natural energy like jugo's because he needs to concentrate and to balance the physical, mental/physical and the natural energy. ( I don't know if it's physical and mental or physical and spiritual).
And if he can gather a natural energy like jugo, why the heck he goes inside of his snake to gather a senjutsu chakra? And when he came out from snake's mouth, he already become a sage mode to fight the uchiha's bro's.
No Sir Naruto's sage mode was given a time limit regardless of if he used jutsu or not. That's the whole reason using Rasenshuriken twice would deplete it. In Regard to your earlier post, you are correct, the whole Reason that Jugo's clan went berserk was because they couldn't control it. Kabuto can control it, thusly no random fits of rage.
Even with Jugo, the amount of Natural energy he absorbs isn't always consistant. I say that because he doesn't always lose control of himself. If Kabuto can actually control it unlike Jugo, it would be even less of a factor for him. But he manly did that to gain distance between himself and the brothers. we all no sharingan genjutsu are kind of a hard thing to get past
I realize I skipped over some of your points. I'll address them after I get some sleep.
And we saw him gathering natural energy while moving. He merged into a bunch a snakes and transformed while also talking to the brothers.
Why are we using the horns as proof that Kabuto can be hurt? I highly doubt he can liquify the horns or his face (assumption, since I don't remember). I doubt Kabuto even cared about the horns to bother healing it.
Nothing stops Kabuto from using Tayuya's ability to put Jiraiya and Minato in genjutsu. We saw it took Jiraiya a long time to summon Ma and Pa, and get into Sage Mode. For all we know, it takes him a while to summon Ma and Pa as well, so by the time both come out, Minato and Jiraiya are already in sound genjutsu and killed, or swallowed by Kabuto.
EVen if Jiraiya summons every single frogs there are, they can still be hit with Tayuya's genjutsu, or Kabuto can even amp his defense with Kimimaro's bones. I doubt Minato can get close enough to Kabuto and plant a tag on him. Even if he did, if Kabuto realizes it he can use Oral Rebirth.
And I think it's purely an assumption that kabuto can gather a natural energy while moving. Pa's frog statement contradicting that assumption of yours. He clearly stated that gathering of natural energy needs a concentration and balance. Because you're just not absorbing that natural energy, you also needs to balance the other energy inside of your body to create a new form of chakra, the senjutsu chakra.
And no, kabuto isn't gathering his senjutsu chakra while moving, you forgetting something that itachi even said that there's alot of snakes and he can't determine where's kabuto. Why? Because kabuto was absorbing his senjutsu chakra inside of his snake's belly while hiding from itachi and sasuke.

Holy shit, I just realized something...
What makes Juugo go crazy? Overabundance of natural energy. Who used to calm him down when he turned homicidal? Sasuke. "I'll be your prison." he said. And how did he do it? That's right: Genjutsu. Sasuke turned off Juugo's access to natural energy... with Genjutsu.
I think you all know what I'm implying.
Thanks for that RK, must have skipped over that when I read it ages ago!
When naruto goes to sage mode, iruka turned off naruto's access to natural energy by saying...... I think of you as my brother.
So, should we assume iruka has the ability to stop naruto's sage mode? Holly Molly. It's more awesome than sasuke's genjutsu, if you ask me.
Jugo go crazy when he absorb natural energy, but it disappeared when his calm.
Naruto can absorb natural energy when he's angry, but it disappeared when his calm.
It's almost the same, right? Their natural energy disappeared when they're calm. So, sasuke's genjutsu isn't the reason why jugo's natural energy gone/stopped/turned off. He's just making jugo's to calm a lil' bit. Nothing more, nothing less.
jiraya was a great shinobi and freaking powerful and he was meant to be the godaime hokage but he let tsunade take that position and kishi never showed his great power in a real battle until his fight with pain and it was jiraya's death,... jiraya vs oro, jiraya was drugged up and oro couldn't use his hands ...
People underestimated jiraya alot to my opinion.
It's not a case of Jiraiya being underestimated. This fight isn't one where the one who can hit harder wins. Jiraiya and Minato would first have to figure out his abilities and how to hurt Kabuto before they could actually defeat him, whereas Kabuto simply needs to hit them.
Kabuto has the tools to deal with JIraiya and Minato, just like how Itachi and Sasuke have the tools to deal with JIraiya and Minato as well. It's only because people refuse to admit their favorite will lose that they ignore that.
Kabuto can affect Minato and Jiraiya with sound vibration, making it difficult for them to concentrate. He can put them in a genjutsu or use Kimimaro to block a lot of attacks. Hell, Kabuto can use Jirobou's jutsu to trap both and suck their chakra out, as long as Minato doesn't have a tag outside.
