Re: Are Sauske & Naruto Top 5 ?
I wouldn't put them Top 5, but close.
If were going by character, The Sage of Six Paths is always number one, hands down.
Considering no Edo Tensei forms: Hashirama can beat Madara, who can beat both Naruto and Sasuke, putting Hashirama and Madara in front of them.
Nagato( without six paths of pain, and not being emotionally swayed) has 5 changes in chakra nature and can counter any jutsu Naruto or Sasuke use against them with his Rinnegan. Putting Nagato ahead as well.
Kabuto's DSM was only bested by Itachi's Izanami, we dont' know what he is REALLY capable of with it, but I would imagine with every ability he absorbed, he wouldn't be beaten by them either, also with his Edo tensei, Edo Yota could beat Naruto and Sasuke, who neither posses a sealing jutsu, making an Edo dominate over them. Putting DSM Kabuto ahead.
Now, Itachi on the other hand, is very intelligent, quick to analyze and find weaknesses, and exploit them.
Had Itachi truly wanted to beat Sasuke in their fight, he easily could've.
Naruto vs Itachi now, With naruto being a jinchuuriki, Genjutsu is useless. And Itachi's Sharingan can make Naruto Shadow clones useless. Leaving Naruto with only Rasengan ( all types ) and TBB ( assuming we're using his BM mode )
Since Naruto can only use one or the other at one time, Itachi's Yata Mirror can deflect it.
Leaving Naruto with no effective jutsu. And therefore, powerless.
So, out of all those you listed, Naruto and Sasuke can not beat any of them.
