A lot of people seem to underestimate Orochimaru(even though he was a legendary sannin), so i was wondering if they think kakashi can beat him in a fight. Kakashi is an extremely popular character in the naruto universe and a strong shinobi, but the fact is that he was really frightened when he first met orochimaru. Why? Because Kakashi did not think he had a chance against him...
The only thing changed since part 1 is the awakened Mangekyō Sharingan.Yes,it is a huge power boost but remember
that since kakashi's version isn't bloodline related it isn't likely he has
tsukiyomi.(the tech which itachi owned oro with and sasuke escaped the transfer jutsu with).
The third feared during the invasion that no one was strong enough to stand up to oro(including kakashi) so in his old age he had to step up. He was comfortable fighting with fourth-tailed naruto,survived a direct punch from super tsunade which makes taijutsu useless aganist him and he defeated both the third(granted he was old) and the fourth kazekage.
