    Itachi, Orochimaru, and Akatsuki

    I just had a thought.

    I think I know Itachi why did not kill Orochimaru when he could have back when the latter tried to steal the former's body.
    Could it be because he knew Orochimaru would leave Akatsuki after that, then become an enemy of Akatsuki? That he knew Orochimaru's potential as an enemy of Akatsuki?
    Orochimaru is not dumb, and he is not weak. Orochimaru is a Sannin. And he proved to be a hated enemy of Akatsuki.

    Dat Itachi

    Itachi couldn't have predicted that Orochimaru would leave Akatsuki. The reason he didn't kill him was because they were theoretically "comrades" - there was just that essence between Akatsuki members to show each other their powers. We don't know why Orochimaru left Akatsuki, most probably he did something against the laws and they wanted to kill him.

    Re: Itachi, Orochimaru, and Akatsuki

    That's a nice perspective on the situation. Why not let Akatsuki pick up more enemies over time?!

    And because you can't kill Orochimaru.

    I disagree. Itachi is smart, and could easily have predicted what Orochimaru did next. It doesn't really take a genius to see what would happen next.
    And we do know why Orochimaru left Akatsuki, it was for that exact reason.

    After failing to take Itachi's body.

    So... he left because he was unable to steal Itachi's body?

    Re: Itachi, Orochimaru, and Akatsuki

    Itachi had no reason to kill him. He was the member of Akatsuki - Nagato would've hanged him.

    Not to mention, Itachi is no philosopher. When he left, Itachi couldn't wander off to try and find Orochimaru. What's the point?

    Itachi probably knew about the Curse Mark and transfer project so he waited for him to come with Sasuke somehow to kill him.

    One does not simply "hang" the solo king

    That's what Narutopedia says, and that's the most likely answer. It was never explicitly stated, but knowing Orochimaru, that was most likely the case.

    Re: Itachi, Orochimaru, and Akatsuki

    I always figured Itachi decided not to kill Orochimaru because he was a pacifist. He preferred not to kill, he didn't care for it because of the war he saw at such a young age. Honestly, I'm pretty sure Itachi's genjutsu fighting style is all due to his pacifist ways.

    This doesn't sound like a reason to leave Akatsuki to be honest, only because you're unable to take one's body doesn't mean you have to leave the whole organization. This also doesn't justify why Akatsuki were after him after he left, this actually tells us he's done something wrong to the organization itself.

    Yeah, not so much. Kakuzu killed dozens of his partners before he was finally partnered with Hidan, who couldn't be killed. However, that didn't seem to be a problem, as he was simply assigned new ones.

    OT: Pretty plausible.

    That's what I thought before. I just added on to that idea.

    I don't think Orochimaru was working for Konoha at that time.

    Re: Itachi, Orochimaru, and Akatsuki

    This is plausible since I don't think any one knows why Oro actually left. Also I think Itachi took the arm as punishment much like hiruzen sealing his arms
