Still, Kakashi's main focus was protecting Sasuke, remember? And he really wasn't toying with him, I think. I think he was just trying to find a way of escape while making it look like he was toying with Kakashi. xD
I suppose so...but what I see in Kabuto is the guy who has an extremely weird motif for everything. He could have killed Sasuke, but he didnt, he didnt have to reach for his neck slowly, he hesitated. Hesitated to kill the kid, after killing like 5 ANBU xD
I think that he didnt want to hurt Kakashi, but had planned for something like that anyways. I doubt that anyone could have caught him at that part....we'll be able to really clarify what it was once Kabuto's character has been expanded on, for now, he;s still one of my favorites
Kabuto was said to be just a little bit weaker then Kakashi and Tsunade even stated somewhere that he may even exceed her medical ninja skills when she was in her prime. Then their's the fact that now Orochimaru is inside him I say kabuto wins easily.
