sarutobi lost against orochimaru....
@ShadowSilver: they were at less than a quarter of their original power... pein would have defeated orochimaru dont you agree?
Sarutobi might be able too but up a good fight like Jiraiya since he did stalemate Orochimaru and the weaker versions of the 1st and 2nd.
Pain has the Rinnegan and the Six Paths buut since he's not serious he could slip up a few times and get caught by the Reaper Death Seal
Pain. Spite. Sarutobi has nothing in his arsenal to put him down.
