Re: [Nagato test] - Xanthe
Okay, so your problem is that the Rasengan would form instantly after the initial water vortex and block the laser.

Your Typhoon Water Vortex had taken the brunt of the explosion and was already weakened so it continued and would have created a massive explosion already. Rasengan can't absorb explosions nor protect you fully from an explosion. If anything, the explosion would blow Naruto off course or at least deviate Naruto's descent. At this point in time, Naruto has been pushed up by the use of Typhoon Water Vortex and been pushed up back into the air slightly. This would cause a large amount of his momentum to be lost and he would basically be free falling for just a moment. While falling for just a moment, his vertical vector of velocity, considering he's moving straight down, is about 5 meters per second. All the explosion needs to do is move him and push him over enough so that he can't come straight down onto Nagato. There are no factors increasing his descent besides gravity and if there is, you haven't stated them. For the explosion to just deviate your path, it would need to just explode and the force of the explosion, which in this case would happen when the laser hits you, would be enough to easily disrupt Naruto's path while he falls. Explosive forces work by applying a force vertical to the surface of the explosion and in this case, the surface is the location and angle at which the laser hits Naruto's forming Rasengans. Since Nagato's arms are angled up so that he can aim the laser and his jutsu, he has an angle that comes in at your side, either above or your side (Or both), and push you up and away with enough force to blow you off course due to you not having a great downward vector of acceleration, gravity being the only one. The horizontal vector of the explosive force is easily enough to blow you off course and away from the pit. You have to consider that size also takes a major effect here as the size of the explosion far exceeds the size of the Rasengan.
1. You have only the vector of force acting on Naruto downwards.
2. Explosive forces act vertical to the surface of the explosive so the angle at which Nagato shot the laser at you would apply a force horizontally enough to deviate Naruto's descent and blow him back towards Itachi.
3. Even if we consider that the Rasengan blocked the majority of the explosion, it would still blow you back.
4. Just because your Rasengan "absorbs" the blast, it would still apply a force that would push you aside.
5. Considering the force vectors on Naruto: There is the force of gravity acting directly down, the horizontal force of the explosion, and the vertical force of the explosion. The horizontal and vertical forces of the explosion far exceed the force of gravity and can easily push you back into the air.
6. If we want, we can consider pressure to also play a role. The force of the laser, withholding easily over 9000 Newtons of force is focused upon a single location on the Rasengan as it hit. This sheer pressure, Force / Area, is incredibly large as the force is focused into an area as small as the area of the laser when it hit the Rasengan. This sheer pressure is enough to push you back into the air and away due to the vector of pressure acting opposite in your direction.
So my two cents is that Naruto shot away to Itachi, near unharmed. Anyways, Alucard will decide.
