I am not perfect and I defy you to prove otherwise
Growing Old Gracefully is an Oxymoron ... Mostly Moron !
I always considered Nagato's position to be similar to that of the original Sage... he had to make a choice between Tobi's ideology and Naruto's, just as the Rikudou Sannin chose between the Elder Son and Younger Son. Jiraiya merely inherited the Will of Fire of the Senju from Sarutobi, who in turn inherited it from Hashirama... who inherited it, in the long run, from the Younger Son. So Jiraiya can't really be compared to the Rikudou, because he himself is a product of the Younger Son's lineage/ideology.
Nagato was originally a successor to the Younger Son's Will of Fire via Jiraiya, but was corrupted by Madara. Essentially, he experienced both ideologies of the Elder/Younger sons, putting him in the position of the "Rikudou", and thus forcing him to make a choice. By trusting in Naruto, he made the same choice as the original Rikudou. Naruto isn't meant to fill in for the Rikudou, he's meant to finish what the Younger Brother started, what Nagato believed Naruto would accomplish. And to do so, he's going to need to make peace with Sasuke, the ultimate heir to the Elder Brother's ideology. By uniting the two "Sons" of the Rikudou lineage, they will achieve the true peace the Rikudou hoped for.
Nagato made his own chooses to devaite from his original ideology when he was child with jiraiya.
Yakrio dying was what changed nagato not madara or tobi. Nagato had his own plans for his nuke jutsu that in itself shows he was following his own plan which happens to coincide with tobi's as they both needed the bjuu's total chakra.
"By uniting the two "Sons" of the Rikudou lineage, they will achieve the true peace the Rikudou hoped for"
In the end of the nagato vs naruto fight both impraced jiraiya's views and nagato become the destined child also in the end too.
Manga/Anime I read/have read/tried to read:
What chakra type are you?
