    You're right.. and don't forget; Naruto has to convince Raikage, that he was wrong in his decision,.. for not saving Sasuke. Raikage brought it up like there's no other ninja way, but Raikage did looked back at Naruto, when he walked away. That means that he got suprised, that someone like Naruto exists.
    Just like many other Kage's ( Tsuchikage ), Raikage didn't had any hope left in believing that forgiving someone for his deeds, will solve all the hatred/darkness/revenge.

    RIGHT NOW, it's time for Naruto, for convincing Raikage, that there's IS a way.. that way is Naruto Uzumaki. And the beauty about this scenario is that; KILLER BEE is going to be the ONE, who's gonna block Raikage's attack for capturing/holding Naruto from going away. Killer Bee is willing to give his life for Naruto, just to save the world.

    - This way, Tsunade will be fighting Dan and Raikage/Killer Bee together; will be fighting their father.

    I like how Sakura evolved herself in becoming one of the best medical ninja around. She IS the next gen of Tsunade,.. BUT after re-reading the chapter, I still think it was a " cheap " way for discovering the spy. Fckin TonTon !!

    Btw, Naruto vs. Raikage,.. means also that we're gonna witness how fast Naruto really IS in his R- Mode. It was said that Raikage's second form of speed was as fast as Minato's yellow flash, meaning; it won't be only raw power, it will also be a match between speed.

    It will be fun to see a Naruto vs Raikage fight. In this fight Naruto needs to compare very well against Raikage. The problem with this thought is that Naruto didn't really finish his training yet but it is also a fact that Naruto learns better through field experience. On the flip side, Raikage as far as we know still has only one hand, although it is possible that Tsunade somehow found a way to regrow his left hand for him.

    This Battle may not give us a true or adequate comparison of how Naruto would fare against Sasuke since Sasuke now has EMS along with Itachi's power, but it should offer some insights.

    Kishimoto has many plots pending. He has:

    Kakashi's Rampage, White Zetsu Sabotage, Madara's Pending Moon's Eye, Itachi and Nagato's plottings, Yamato's fate, Gara's Batlle with his Pops, Tsuchikage vs His Master, Sasuke's Status, and maybe a few more. Hope Kishi finds a way to squeeze all these things in there without shortchanging any one of them.

    Kabuto's scheming/Mystery Coffin, Mizukage vs. Black Zetsu, Naruto vs. Raikage. Plus we really should get a chance to see the Edo Jinchuuriki fight, at some point.

    I honestly consider Sage Mode Naruto to be stronger than the Raikage, back when we first saw the guy fight. Naruto shouldn't struggle at all at this point. Raikage is basically about speed and power, just like Naruto, except Naruto has Kagebunshin combos and Rasengans on top of his power-ups, while the Raikage's Raiton power-up is really all he's got. Granted, it was enough to force Sasuke to use Susano'o, but Sasuke uses that on everyone these days.

    Don't forget Naruto has the ability of sensing evil, that will give him a massive advantage against Raikage.

    Naruto should be able to see him coming and counter anything Raikage throws at him.

    Now that I think about it, Naruto's talk-no-jutsu has a chance of success. He only needs to say: "Sasuke is like a brother to me, I can't abandon him like that. Wouldn't you be still trying to save your own brother, even if he has fallen so low ?".

    You consider the Raikage evil? I'd say Sage Mode's sensing abilities are more useful, but I dunno. If Naruto does anything clever with wind element, he's got the advantage against lightning, though.

    I agree, Sage Mode should be more than enough to defeat Raikage, his current abilities are the definition of overkill in facing Raikage.

    I think you're underestimating Raikage a little, the Guy has strength and speed that would rival or exceed Naruto's sage mode abilities. Naruto will be handicapped by not having prepared Clones to gather sage energy for him, plus he can't use his SFRS on an ally. Before you remind me that Naruto's Yellow flash speed is Da-Bomb, let me agree, but let me point out that Naruto hasn't practiced Rasengan in Rikudou Mode (RM) yet, let alone used it to make himself resistant to injury, plus he can't at this time combine RM with SM, so he can't use the advantages of sage mode with the speed that RM gives him.

    I can see how Kishi might use this fight to allow Naruto to discover what he can do with RM. Or it could be the first time Naruto might attempt to combine SM with RM. In practical terms he needs to not get taken out by Raikage very early in the fight.

    I'm not saying his evil, Raikage is a raging bull his definitley got some hatred in his heart.

    Hatred is an element of evil, remember Naruto had a dark side born from hatred and the Kyuubi could sense his darkness or as he calls it the real Naruto.

    If the Kyuubi sensing ability could sense evil inside the "hug no jutsu" specialist Naruto, then surely Naruto should be able to do the same with Raikage.

    Naruto's typical weakness, as described by Kakashi, lies with shinobi who utilize long range attacks. Facing another guy that's a hand to hand, charge first ask questions later, type of guy plays to Naruto's strength. Naruto's Sage Mode upgrade is the equivalent of Sasuke's MS upgrade at the time he faced Raikage on Kishi's consistent upgrade scale he uses to keep them near each other in terms of power.

    From the abilities shown during his fight with Pain, I believe he's ideally suited for this fight with Raikage that in all likelihood will never happen in earnest.
