First is the Fourth Raikage. His power is a ‘spectacular’ combination of brutality and breakneck speed – extremely rare among shinobi.
This powerful combination leads people to believe that Jiraiya will have difficulty keeping up with the Fourth Raikage’s movements, as well as reacting in time to fight effectively. The Raikage is also known for not giving his opponents time to prepare, which could prevent Jiraiya from activating his Sage Mode.
Next we have Kabuto. After overcoming Orochimaru, Jiraiya’s arch-rival, Kabuto rose to formidable heights of power. His power is so strong that even characters like Itachi and Sasuke have difficulty defeating him.
With the abilities of the Sound Four, combined with Uzumaki’s vitality and regeneration, Kabuto becomes an extremely challenging opponent who could surpass Jiraiya.
Tobi Truly a ‘hard to swallow’ opponent of Jiraiya. He has good reflexes that help him avoid attacks from the famous Minato Namikaze and his Mangekyou Sharingan’s Kamui ability. This allows Tobi to ‘pass’ through anything.
Jiraiya would struggle against Kamui, rendering even his formidable ‘hair barrier’ ineffective.
In addition, we also have Naruto, Jiraiya’s disciple. After Jiraiya’s death, Naruto mastered Sage Mode and wielded Kurama’s power, surpassing even his master.
Furthermore, Naruto also made a deal with his jinchuuriki, making Jiraiya’s genjutsu ineffective on him.
Finally, there is Orochimaru, another member of the Legendary Sannin. Since childhood, Orochimaru has been stronger than Jiraiya.
With a diverse arsenal of skills and tricks, it can be believed that Orochimaru is a ‘deadly’ opponent when facing Jiraiya on equal terms.
