Once again, i resort to have to point out a thing like this. People have overrated AL way too much. First, they say he is the strongets member in Akatsuki even without seeing him in action. Second, they say that no one dares to question AL because he will bitch slapped them. Third, when AL get questioned, people say, "well, AL let them, but his speech pwned them.' Fourth, then they say how uber powerful this guy is because he is calm and smart. Hello, did you forget Zetsu, Oro, Sasori, Deidara, Itachi? Fifth, Then they say how AL has hidden agendas and is planning to fool Akatsuki in order for him to rule the world. You must really think Akatsuki are just a bunch of idiots if you think they honor the word, loyalty. People there have killed their own families, children, women, and their own people. They all have their own hidden agendas within Akatsuki, not just AL. Sixth, People here think that AL can't be replace, but anyone else can! This is pure none sense. All of them are replaceable, and at the same time they aren't. If you take your ring with you, no one can't replace you, which is the case with Oro. If you leave akatsuki without your ring you can be replaced. If someone kills AL, they can still seal bijuu in other objects, but they will have to do it in another way. After all, if people have sealed the bijuus into humans, then they also know how to seal these beasts. Another possibility is taking AL's summon scroll. We know that the King of Hell is a summon because we saw how he was summoned. So everyone is replaceable, even AL.
