  • What if Naruto hadn't stepped in, and it was literally Tsunade vs Pain's Six Paths. Now that we know she had Strength of a Hundred Technique, and intel on their techniques, how would she have fared? Better than Jiraiya? Or would the exhaustion have been too much for her to activate her Strength of a Hundred Technique? What if she wasn't tired, how would she have fared then?

    • In the state that she was in when she stepped up against Pain, she would have gotten stomped. She was exhausted of almost all of her chakra when she protected everyone against the Shinra Tensei that destroyed the village; she became extremely frail and unwell for a very long time after Pain's invasion.

      Now, if she was at full power with her Mitotic regen technique, she would have fared much better. I still think the outcome would be that Pain would win, but I reckon she would take down the Preta Path, Naraka Path and probably Human Path with ease.

      Asura Path maybe not, since Nagato reacted to Killer Bee with it who has faster CQC speed than Tsunade, so her punches might be stopped by restraining wires and mechanical arms. However, Tsunade could maybe pull it off considering Pain had dulled reaction speeds as a result of the big Shinra Tensei.

      If Tsunade could get close to him, the Deva Path would be taken down easily at the point of the fight you're talking about, since his abilities hadn't returned yet. But if they did, Deva has a pretty good counter to Tsunade, he'd just keep repelling her with Shinra Tensei whenever she would come close, or he would use Bansho Tenin to pull her into the clutches of the Human Path. Although, it's easy to assume that Tsunade could just punch the Human Path.

      In terms of any damage she sustains, either from the rockets and missiles or the summonings, she would regen quickly so it wouldn't be too much of a problem for a while. In terms of the chakra rods though, yes she would recover from them, but they would disturb her chakra, so she would not be as efficient with it. Additionally, she wouldn't be able to do so forever, so Pain could stall her until she runs out of chakra.

      Tsunade would have trouble with the Animal Path as well, all the summonings would pressure her quite a bit, her only option would be to try and hit the summoner Pain, but that might be difficult given that she would need to bypass all the summonings and the other Paths of Pain.

      I don't think Tsunade would perform as well as Jiraiya. Jiraiya utilised an offensive summoning, and I can't recall any offensive summonings on Tsunade's part. Katsuyu is quite passive and wouldn't be able to help Tsunade out against the plethora of summonings Pain has up his sleeve. Jiraiya also had Sage Mode, albeit imperfect, but it is a difference nonetheless.

      All in all, I think Prime Tsunade against Pain would still lose, taking out 3 Pains at best, 4 if Deva doesn't have his powers back. Realistically, if Pain resorted to it, Tsunade has nothing on Chibaku Tensei.

    • Ok, that answers it. Thanks Halcyonite!

    • Sorry she's not taking down any one of them with the shared vision of the paths, her speed is very poor to tag any of them. She'd be easily restricted by chakra rods and gg.

    • But she knows of their shared vision, wouldn't she adapt accordingly?

    • Having intel doesn't make sense if you lack the capabilities to put the intel to use

    • With Strength of a Hundred, I reckon she could take down one or two. She could really just oneshot them considering how ridiculous her strength is. Plus she's a master of Taijutsu.

      I bet she could take down one or two before they figured out they couldn't trade blows with her and distanced themselves. However, she'd have to get lucky and hit the one that revives the others. If not, it was all for nothing lol

      Tsunade is one of the sannin and one of the most famous shinobi from Konoha renowned for her medical expertise and monstrous strength. Her exploits are known far and wide. Considering the fact that Jiraiya taught Nagato, he should at least have a basic knowledge of Tsunade's capabilities. Don't really think she has an element of surprise in this regard.

      Under normal circumstances, where both Pain and Tsunade are at full strength, Tsunade most likely wouldn't be able to touch the paths due to shared vision as well as irritating techs such as Deva's Shinra Tensei and Bansho Tenin.

      But this debate is regarding a Pain who has just utilised Shinra Tensei to destroy the village. This Shinra Tensei shortened Nagato's lifespan and also dulled the responsiveness of the Paths of Pain for the duration of Naruto's fight. In this case, I'd think Tsunade would be fast enough to hit a couple of the Paths of Pain due to this disadvantage.

      Yeah Tsunade is a Sannin, but being a Sannin doesn't mean a lot compared to Pain. Ask Jiraiya. Jiraiya barely got 3 down before his arm was ripped off and he was immediately killed. And that was when he was only fighting 3 at a time.

      Kakashi's exploits are known far and wise as well, yet he ended up dying after his fight with Pain. Renown doesn't mean you're the strongest.

      Jiraiya taught Nagato, but why would he teach them about his teammates? It'd be bad practice to explain the mechanics of your teammate's jutsu to anyone.

      I wasn't trying to suggest that Tsunade has any sort of chance against pain. What I was trying to say is that many people know Tsunade's got monstrous strength. Especially considering the fact that Jiraiya was Nagato's teacher. It isn't about the mechanics of her techniques either. Just a basic knowledge of her modus operandi and likely wouldn't be able to surprise him with it in battle. Pain is in a whole other league compared to her. Even healthy or in her prime, she doesn't even compare.

      The deva path whilst weakened was still able to swap hands with sage Naruto, dodge a rasenshuriken, unless Tsunade can move faster than sage naruto or as fast,she loses, as the fight also has tsunade in her weakened state (and healthy state.) What notable speed feats does she even have lol

    • @Jason When did Deva swap hands with Sage Naruto? I remember Naruto fending Deva Path off without Sage Mode, then as soon as he got Sage Mode back he blasted him away with a single kick.

      The fight also has a parameter asking what would happen if she wasn't tired.

    • @Squinty To be fair, I think Deva just got kicked back because he was surprised. The Animal Path held its own against Sage Naruto in some taijutsu. Not that I'm saying that Animal Path is on Naruto's level in taijutsu.

    • Tsunde would die really fast even with regenerative abilities . But let's say she manages to take down one of them they can come back to life. Or we could say some miracle happened and she was only down to the diva path he would destroy her

    • If it took naruto full on 8 tails to beat the deva path Tsunade takes a fat l. She could take out a few before getting killed.

      It took Naruto going 8-tails to break out of Chibaku Tensei, not to beat the Deva Path. Naruto later defeats him with cunning use of clones and a Rasengan to the gut.
