Re: Sasori vs Orochimaru
You're making him sound impressive, when in fact he isn't. He is one of the worst villains TBH. Him and Kabuto. He managed to learn some jutsu that made him quite strong (including IWR), but he decided that he needs an Uchiha body. Well... he was so smart that he let Sasuke become strong enough to defeat him (cause I doubt Oro's plan was to be absorbed by sasuke and hope that someday sasuke will be weak enough to need his powers). That's a very huge mistake to make. Also as a villain he was not impressive. Yes at the chunnin exams he was scary because they were all genin. But later on when he fought tsunade and jirayia it wasn't really jirayia's best was it? Tsunade is a medical ninja and we know she's not a strong fighter. And we have all seen what jirayia was really capable of. I think Jirayia was mostly holding back because he still wanted Oro to come back to the good side. Otherwise I don't see why not end it right there with sage mode. And Sasuke vs Orochimaru was laughable. He let himself be weak enough to be absorbed.

He is capable of such detailed attention, that he can control quite accurately 100 puppets... That's sharingan level accurate. He can do offense and defense at the same time (please tell which other character is so multi-layered in battle). He made himself into a puppet to avoid most of the weaknesses in the human body and to keep himself young (pwning Oro's quest for eternity). And one of the most important things is that even if he lost, he lost intentionally... against one of the best opponents he could get + 1 medical ninja... so in fact he could have won that battle (which people seem to have forgotten).
Who's more impressive? Well Oro has done a lot of stuff that's true, but in a battle, Sasori is waaaaaaaaay more impressive than Oro. Oro has his snakes, but sasori can control so many things at once, that I presume even a sharingan user would have difficulties with. So if they were to fight, Sasori would have the advantage in tactics and numbers, while Oro would have the advantage in jutsu.
