Re: In what order of strength,power and knowledge the 4 main characters are.
Kabuto has an undead Akatsuki army on his side plus his unknown coffin *cough* Madara *cough* he also has been shown to be very intelligent and to think his plans through carefully.
Tobi he possesses both the Sharingan and the Rinnegan and is utilizing the 6 previous Jinchuriki's as the new Six Paths of Pain. He is also intelligent and will not hesitate to make a decisive move quickly.
Naruto has Sage mode and Kyubi mode at his disposal but does not know enough about either Tobi or Kabuto to effectively combat them especially with Kabuto wielding an Edo Tensei army.
Sasuke, Where to begin with this one, he has had his power handed to him repeatedly throughout the series yet still manages to lose with it nearly every time, he was given the cursed seal by Orochimaru and barely beat everyone he fought with it that wasn't just a fodder ninja. Itachi let himself die so that Sasuke would acquire his MS but what does he do? He goes and uses it so much that he is nearly as blind as Itachi was and still manages to almost die on roughly 3 separate occasions so now he has the EMS given to him by Madara in part due to Itachi intentionally allowing Sasuke to kill him. People complain about Naruto's power ups being bad but at least Naruto worked his butt off to develop or learn most of his jutsu rather than getting eye hacks like Sasuke.
