    Naruto's Sage skills did not change, apart from the war arc where he could use FRS 3 times. The variation depends on if you think FRS quantity makes a difference ITT.

    What stops Amaterasu or Susanoo from overwhelming Naruto?

    Naruto would beat this version of Itachi (assuming the kid starts in SM and has spare bunshins gathering NE)

    There's a very good chance that Itachi gets killed in the first CQC encounter since he doesn't know about Frog Kata. Other than that he has an answer to pretty much everything Naruto has to offer. So I'd say it could go either way.

    Invisible strikes will ruffle up Itachi forcing him into susanoo. This Naruto could probably punch it around cause he lifted a rhinoceros Rex and tossed it around.
    MA and PA for non Tsukuyomi genjutsu and 3 boss summons to harass the susanoo. They don't need to look at itachi to fight a bigger target and negate genjutsu attempts. Naruto can take on itachi and force his attention towards himself via clone spam.
    Adding frog call and song makes it easier. Naruto was going to town with pain. He can take down Itachi.

    This version of Itachi would lose imo high diff. Part 1 or early part 2 Itachi would beat Naruto though (assuming this is not WA SM Naruto)

    1. Naruto already knows about Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, so he will be expecting them ahead of time.
    2. Naruto can counter Tsukuyomi by relying on his SM sensing to see and battle Itachi properly.
    3. Naruto, like Hebi Sasuke did, could outrun Amaterasu for a while (if he starts running ahead of time) and use Big-Ball Rasengan to block it and then disperse it to get rid of the flames. He could do this, or create Shadow Clones and use them as diversions to get hit by the flames instead. Especially since Itachi won't know which one is actually Naruto. We've seen people counter Amaterasu in all kinds of ways, so these tactics aren't far-fetched or hard to believe at all.
    4. Naruto has chakra and danger sensing, so he can sense the MS ahead of time, and can block LoS with smoke bombs like he did against Pain so Itachi cannot aim properly.
    5. He can employ the tactic he used against Pain to have Itachi's Amaterasu hit a Shadow Clone transformed into a fake Rasenshuriken, only for the real Rasenshuriken to hit him right after. If Itachi uses Amaterasu on it, he'd have to use Susanoo to block the wall of flames headed his way: Leaving him open to being hit by another Rasenshuriken right after, as his LoS would be blocked by the flames on his Susanoo. Even if Itachi dodges it, it's expansion should still hit him. So if Naruto's Rasenshuriken hits Itachi's Susanoo, considering what Danzo's much weaker Wind Release ninjutsu did to Sasuke's Susanoo, it should destroy Susanoo and kill Itachi.
    6. Itachi has no knowledge on Naruto's SM capabilities, so if he engages in CQC and goes for some Sharingan genjutsu shenanigans he may very well get one-shotted by Frog Kata (Though I find this scenario unlikely).
    This is all of course, excluding the exceptional support that Fukasaku and Shima could provide if Naruto decided to summon both of them. So imo, Naruto definitely has the tools to win here. I simply find it hard to believe that someone as strong as SM Naruto is doomed to hopelessly be one-shot by the likes of MS Itachi when the likes of Hebi Sasuke (who is much weaker) was able to find counters to some of Itachi's MS arsenal. Especially considering how well he performed against the likes of Pain, who is much stronger than Itachi is. He most certainly has the overall portrayal (hype and feats) to defeat this Itachi.

    According to @Munboy Dracule O'Brian

    Pain Arc Naruto > Minato

    And judging by the replies

    Pain Arc Naruto > Minato > Itachi

    Itachi wins. Naruto'll struggle against his speed. He has soul sensing which enables him to pick up thoughts in people's hearts as per Kabuto. He uses it to figure out his intention to hit him with frog kata.

    Power wise Naruto is stronger, but intelligence wise Itachi wins by a mile. I think Itachi would end up winning unless it was War Arc Sage Mode Naruto who can recharge Sage Mode in an instant. If it's WA Naruto I can argue for Naruto's victory.

    Invisible strikes will insta-kill Itachi. There would be no Susano.

    Don't think he'll go into CQC, he usually exchanges Ninjutsu then plants a bunshin and tries to get the shinobi in Genjutsu or a trick kill.

    KCM Naruto looked directly into Itachi's eyes after telling Killer Bee not to, SM Naruto should be caught by Tsukuyomi and killed.

    I would love to see Itachi go down to Taijutsu. After his undefeated record as a shinobi throughout his entire career - the one technique to bring him down is boxing.

    More elite taijutsu didn't work against MS Sasuke (V1 Raikage, V2 Raikage, V1 Killer Bee).. who's weaker than Itachi.

    If this weren't Kishimoto's manga that'd be an interesting outcome, I suppose. Not possible in this guy's manga though.

    Let's just say all the wipes Kishimoto used while writing itachi has finally paid off then when we can agree itachi isn't going down with boxing. More likely he will of he does decide to engage Naruto cause he destroyed a pain path with one punch and has enough strength to jackhammer a rhino the size of a Dino. But only if Itachi chooses to engage Cqc will he get air bitch slapped so hard he'll stop holding back.
    And I'm afraid I didn't get the Sasuke point

    MS techniques are going to be difficult for Naruto to deal with assuming he only has knowledge of his Genjutsu and Itachi was not only sick but he was holding back and not fighting at full strength , if Naruto is in Sage Mode no way is Itachi going in close as Naruto should be able to react and counter to everything Itachi could throw at him , FRS was supposed to be counter to Kirin and Itachi was able to tank that with his Susanoo I also see Itachi taking out Ma and Pa before they can get off frog song like Pain was able to this will push Itachi as if he’s not careful any slip up could finish him but I see him catching Naruto with Totsuka sooner or later

    Itachi wins high diff

    By the way this match has no bearing on Jiraiya because we know even though Jiraiya was a weaker Sage him being able to stay in Sage Mode his multilayered ninjutsu aresenal as well as his battle instincts make him a superior matchup than Naruto at this time.

    Would you happen to have a manga scan of this that doesn't involve you misinterpreting something because Itachi needs to be as OP as possible? I'm sure you don't, but I'd be interested to see what dialogue you messed up with.

    Huh? A battle never took place.

    Itachi was there to present himself to the elders.

    Do you think Itachi lost to the Jounin too?

    That's your opinion, which is irrelevant as far as Itachi's battle record is concerned.

    Undefeated.

    Did you take issue with anything else in my post, or do you actually think a single taijutsu maneuver will beat Itachi Uchiha?
