Who could it be? A fanatic of the Icha Icha series?
I wouldn't like it if the chubby little guy was the original Pein.
I agree. I don't think Pain is the 3rd student. If the wave/rain (whatever the name) country and Konoha had as much contact as they seem to have had (as implied in Kushina's mention), then the jounins of Konoha may have been liason teachers to those smaller countries and come in contact with other students of different villages.

Also, if we reflect back, Ibiki was the 1st one to recognize Jiraiya when he came to help Konoha during the Sand and Sound's attack. And Ibiki also reflected on his detailed impressions on Orochimaru while Orochimaru was semi-young in Konoha, which would be much more likely to occur if he was with Jiraiya, since the sannin would have more interaction among each other than other ninja groups would have with Orochimaru.
Also, if you remember back to the end of his chuunin exam test, he lifted his hat to show the drill holes and stuff, but we also found out he was bald from that. Also, if Ibiki was the 3rd teammate, the change in his younger physique (seems a tad fat) could be explained by the torture experiences he mentioned/showed (which would thin him out).
Also, Ibiki was one of the people to make a special note of Naruto in the earlier part of the series, so it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up having a role in Naruto's future.
yeah, I've thought it that way before, the timing seems right...and that is WAY better than having the 3rd one be pein again...but overall i don't think this is significant, he's just there to be there i guess.
WTB Ibiki as the 3rd member :P
and Orochimaru and Tsunade didn't only have 1 student, we've just only been introduced to Anko for orochimaru (and i don't know if we've met any from Tsunade's group)
Something tells me since Anko hates/fears orochimaru so much and has his seal on her, that her and her team mates were used in experiments. She might be the only survivor.
Baldy is pein. pein gets new bodies for different reasons. so his real image is yet to come. pein an konan were teammates of the 4th and they probably moved to the rain country. konan is hott<3
What does WTB stand for?
