Sasuke can't beat Orochimaru? That's funny, I could have sworn he absorbed him with his own Jutsu, awhile back. Even if Orochimaru wasn't ill, what can he possibly do to Sasuke and his Sharingan? Naruto could easily beat Orochimaru now. Orochimaru could barely handle four-tailed out of control Naruto, how on earth can he deal with fully in control Kyuubi Mode Naruto with Kurama working alongside him? Orochimaru is old news, he'd have to get some kind upgrade to even be a main player right now. After all the insanely powerful stuff that's been shown, people actually think modern day Orochimaru is still a threat to Naruto or Sasuke?

RIP anime version of Glovehead. Pokemon Adventures will save you.
