Re: Jiraiya Vs Itachi ?
Jiraiya would beat Itachi hands down.
Itachi: His Genjustu takes 1sec to take effect, fair enough, do you think Jiraiya would be so thick as to look into his eyes?
Susanoo etc etc are awesome but Jiraiya could just keep evading until Itachi ran out of chakra/died from overuse as this tech is a last resort.
Jiraiya: In sage mode with elders is I believe unable to be trapped by Genjustu the only trouble is getting into Sage Mode but I believe he would find a way and then proceed to pwn Itachi as he just needs to land 1 Rasengan.
Kisame: Again cant use main tool and absorb Jiraiyas Sage chakra he is still a powerful opponent but with his main arsenal taken away and jiraiya could imo easily pwn him.
The point about Itachi running away because Jiraiya would kill them both has some manner of truth to it but it is all in all a pointless argument;
1. Itachi doesnt want to hurt Jiraiya
2. Jiraiya would kill them because only Kisame would fight to kill Jiraiya, Itachi wouldnt fight at his best which in theory would result in his and Kisame's death
3. At this point in the story Kisame and Itachi are weaker than they are when the story progressed by 3yrs so theres probably no way Jiraiya would beat Kisame + Itachi at full strength later on.
