Is Sasuke really as powerful as a "god" on his own?

    My answer... no.

    It is true that he's currently one of the strongest ninjas his age: he's intellegent, naturally (for the most part) gifted in learning various types of 'jutsu, and has the Sharingan (which seems to be one of the better bloodline limits to have in the Naruto universe).

    However, the other aspect of that "power" (and what everyone seems to forget now that Kabuto pulled his "gotcha!" moment in chapter 356) is that part of the new powers/abilities/jutsus that Sasuke has displayed in the curent arcs are directly from Orochimaru's influence/power. When Orochimaru's attempt to take over Sasuke's body backfired, Sasuke reversed the justu and took over Orochimaru instead. Hypothetically, this would mean that Saskue not only gained access to the justus that Orochimaru knew, but also his chakra amount as well - meaning that Sasuke has a FAR greater amount of chakra then he originally possessed, which in turn means that he now use stronger jutsus that he may not have learned from Orochimaru (and has more resources to draw upon without losing strength). In a way, I see it as being very similar to Naruto's relationship with Kyubi or Gaara's relationship with Shukaku.

    Thoughts?

    Hmm him borrowing power from Oro as if it was a Bijuu would be cool.

    However, I wouldn't take away sasuke's feats just because he has Oro inside of his body. Nothing has proved that Sasuke has became more powerful because of having Oro's soul in his body.

    A student is only as good as his master, look at the sannin as a keen example.

    Exactly! Look at Sakura and Tsunade, Sakura has shown to possess medical skill that are 2nd to none except to her Master Tsunade herself. Sasuke was just the perfect student for Orochimaru to pass his jutsu on to, just as Sakura was the perfect student for Tsunade to pass her jutsu on to as well.

    Sasuke hasn't really done anthing since his fight with Oro so I doubt that anyone could take away anything from him.
