    Itachi could have killed Obito...

    Pretty obvious, I'd say, but hey, here's the argument:

    1. Obito said Itachi could kill him with knowledge



    And knowledge is gained from experience, for those of you who don't know.

    So Obito carefully guarding his secrets means he was the one keeping his distance.

    2. Why didn't Itachi kill him then?



    Why didn't the Five Kages and all of their guards kill Tobi?

    Why'd didn't Minato with all of Konoha kill Tobi?

    Because Obito can phase out of and teleport away from any fight.

    3. Itachi was the one (who couldn't teleport) surrounded by Tobi's allies.



    Why didn't Tobi defeat Itachi and control him with genjutsu like he did with Yagura?

    Why didn't Tobi store Itachi in the handy-dandy pocket-dimension until he needed him like with Torrune?

    Why didn't Tobi replace Itachi with a White Zetsu clone for Sasuke like he did with Kisame?

    Why did Tobi hide in the shadows for years when Itachi joined, and didn't emerge until just before Itachi died?

    4. Itachi was Tobi's problem.



    Regardless of translation specifics, Itachi was a problem.

    And Tobi didn't make a move on Konoha until Itachi was dead.

    If Tobi betrayed a pact after the pactmaker died, that means he didn't respect the pact.

    Only the pactmaker. Tobi didn't move purely because he didn't want to cross a living Itachi.

    He had Akatsuki annihilating Konoha before Itachi's body was even cold.

    4. Tobi thought Itachi was the bee's-knees. Itachi thought Tobi ['current Madara'] was pathetic.





    And you'd be surprised how many can't differentiate 'pathetic shell of former self' from 'invincible Madara.'

    5. Tobi's Kamui has an obvious counter.



    Tobi cannot attack and defend at the same time.

    Gai countered Obito's offense with his nunchucks. It isn't unstoppable.

    But guess who has clones? Guess who can fool a Dragon Sage and EMS user with feints?

    Guess whose clones explode, which can make Obito absorb explosive damage like Konan did?

    Heck, he has exploding clones and one of the fastest ninjutsu and one the fastest jutsu molding speeds.

    Itachi's a walking counter to Obito's Kamui.

    The author wouldn't even have to create new jutsu out of nowehere for Itachi to look great...

    5. Tobi's only other primary jutsu was Izanagi



    Who was that ninja with the jutsu specifically designed to trounce Izanagi?

    Conclusion

    So, why didn't the terminally ill teenager with deteriorating eyesight that was waltzing around the enemy base as a known double-agent for nearly a decade, who was actively keeping the Big Bad from attacking Konoha again, kill the Big Bad? Because the Big Bad was hiding in the shadows. He was hiding from Itachi so effectively that even the readers didn't know he existed until the 300 chapters in.

    I feel like you need more information to make a good argument for this

    Re: Itachi could have killed Obito...

    No need to read, I completely agree. It's obvious imo. Obito is more powerful than Itachi, but Itachi's godly intelligence is what could've ended Obito if Itachi had known all of his secrets. Kishi doesn't have 99% of the characters praise Itachi's abilities, potential, and intelligence for nothing.

    When someone turns on a pact the moment the person they made it with dies, then they didn't give a damn about it. If facts make you stop reading, then you should stop reading altogether.

    I agree. If tobi could have killed itachi he wouldn't have made a pact with him in the first place.

    Why should he keep a pact with a dead man? That is like a country having a treaty with another country that doesn't exist anymore.

    Oh yeah, don't forget plot no jutsu. Kishi wouldn't have had Itachi kill Obito, the frickin main antagonist. That's Naruto's job.

    Not really. A pact ends with death. That's just a fact.

    However, I agree with you that Itachi could kill Tobi using his intelligence.

    Re: Itachi could have killed Obito...

    You're acting like Itachi didn't know Obito was the leader of the akatsuki, talking about how he was hiding until Itachi died Pfft Obito was hiding cause he couldn't reveal himself yet he didn't reveal himself as leader until after Yahiko died.

    Re: Itachi could have killed Obito...

    Great post! I agree, I really believe Itachi could have killed him, had Obito been dumb enough to have told him everything. Defiantly Obito was scared to make a move on Konoha, while Itachi was there, no doubt.

    Let me answer your question with an analogy. If I made a pact with you to never have sex with your wife, and didn't do so for years, but then had sex with your wife after you died, but before your body was cold, then I didn't care about the pact. I cared about you reacting to me breaking the pact.

    Well she's not his wife anymore she's a widow ... So the title of wife goes away and makes it Fair game

    “The paradox of vengefulness
    is that it makes men dependent
    upon those who have harmed
    them, believing that their
    release from pain will come
    only when their tormentors
    suffer.”
     

    Re: Itachi could have killed Obito...

    I agree with everything stated, others are just in denial.

    EDIT: I would rep you, but apparently I have to spread it around more first.:y

    Re: Itachi could have killed Obito...

    With enough intel maybe Itachi could have been able to defeat Obito. One thing that worries me is Obito's Senju half. A hit with that half at full power would devastate. Also, Itachi was a pacifist, so seeking a fight against who he thought was "Madara Uchiha" probably wasn't the best choice at the time. One last thought: When Itachi was talking about how "Madara" was a pathetic, defeated loser who was unworthy of being called the Uchiha's strongest... I think Itachi was partly trolling Sasuke so he could get him in the mood. Notice how he used the word "Today." That implies that he will "retrieve" Sasuke's eyes in order to achieve the Eternal Mangekyou, although he knew he wasn't. He was just setting the mood. Just a thought.
