Re: Who's The Strongest Character So Far
Good question. I don't think there is a "strongest" character. They all have strengths and weaknesses... It's a circle. Here's how I think of it: A is stronger than B, B is stronger than C but C can defeat A because of some special power... Or you can think of it like the Element wheel:

So nothing is the best, coz each has a weakness.
Jiraiya would have probably been able to beat Itachi given how well he fought against both Itachi and Kisame. Also, Jiraiya would've been able to beat Pein if he'd known the secrets of Rinnegan. Then there's Pein himself who would probably have pwned Itachi. According to Fukasaku, the Rinnegan is said to be the most powerful eye tech.
Rinnegan - Narutopedia, the Naruto Wiki
And Pein fell to Naruto... So, there you have it.
