    Jesus, since when did we attract such a huge following of whiners?

    Sasuke will win and likely reveal a glimpse of his new sharingan abilities. This part of the manga is predictable; deal with it.

    I don't get the people complaining about Sasuke's seeming Goku-like strength. I think the point is to make Naruto look like badass when he finally beats him down. Stacking the odds against the main character is a basic story-telling technique.
    Plus, it has to be shown that Sasuke can handle himself if Naruto goes Kyubi so there's at least some drama to the fight.

    That said, Sasuke's fight and Naruto's training don't interest me much because those two characters have plot shields keeping them from harm.

    @ Sidharthavicious: the problem with your comparison is that Goku is the main character (a.k.a. what Naruto should be) compared to Vageta (where Sauske should be). Granted Vageta was stronger untill the end of the Freza saga, but they were always comparable, and Goku was always clearly stronger after that point. Continuing your DBZ argument, even the upgrades to Buu were quick and done within five chapters. Any "bad guy" never got anywhere near 50 chapters devoted just to them leveling up.

    @ Upyours: You mean you don't already?

    You do know Goku wasn't the strongest by the end of the manga, right? (He wasn't even in 3rd place)

    Anyway, another example for a series where the main character wasn't the strongest would be Saint Seiya. Seiya was the one to pull the miracles when they were needed, but there were other saints who were clearly stronger than him (amongst the 5 main characters, I'd say he was only stronger than Shun).

    There's also Shaman King. HAO and HoroHoro had much more furyoku than Yoh (who's the main character).

    Granted it's been ages since I last read the Dragonball manga, but who took the top three ranks?

    On topic, I think Kishi is making a big mistake if he lets Sasuke take this fight. The 8 tails has had years to train and should be 'the goal' for Naruto. Building Sasuke up so that Naruto looks bad ass when he beats him is all good and stuff, but if he can take this fight, then I don't think Naruto has much chance. I suppose Naruto can win through some crap like the power of friendship, but I'd much prefer it for him to beat Sasuke with his own ninja skills.

    Hoo, this is the response I was hoping for in this thread, it looks like most of everyone believes that Sasuke will win, making it all the better when he loses. Right now, the only questions remaining are when he'll notice that he can't win and how he's going to escape with everyone alive.

    You know, a lot of you aren't giving Kishi the credit he deserves....

    Also, feel free to laugh in my face if I'm wrong

    ^I'm not laughing in your face. I see 2 possibilities: 1) The predictable one, that many (including me) think will happen. 2) Team Snake gets obliterated and Sasuke is severely injured, all as planned by Tobi. Tobi will use this to either turn Sasuke more towards depending on him or manipulate him mentally to make him play the sheep longer.

    Frankly, I think the latter would be overkill, so I choose #1.

    Should Naruto lose against Pain? Personally, I think it'd be fun if he loses, but friends of him sacrifice themselves so he can escape and survive. Then Naruto will learn that hard work doesn't always end up in gain. A first defeat would also be important, I think. I addition that he'll know the feeling of powerlessness since he couldn't save anyone, and thus he'll realise the Will of Fire doesn't always work. Then he'll train again, and come back several years later as a more realistic person.
