After all, would Hiruzen Sarutobi be able to beat Pain in Naruto?

Sarutobi unfortunately did not have the opportunity to fight Pain during the invasion of the village in Naruto Shippuden, as he died at the hands of Orochimaru during the classic. But would he be able to stop Pain’s threat after all?

After all, would Hiruzen Sarutobi be able to beat Pain in Naruto?

One of the strongest and most underrated shinobi in all of Naruto’s history, Hiruzen Sarutobi was the Third Hokage of Konoha. Like Hashirama Senju, he was given the title of ‘The Shinobi God’, which speaks volumes about his strength.

In his old age, Hiruzen was able to defeat Orochimaru, along with the weakened First and Second Hokage, which is an incredible feat, even though he died in the process. It is said that in his prime, Hiruzen was stronger than all the Hokage that came before him.

Therefore, if he were alive during Pain’s invasion, he would probably be able to at least contain the great threat, even if he had to give his life for it, as happened during Orochimaru’s invasion.
