    Hebi Sasuke instead of fighting Itachi, he first tried to go to Ryuchi Cave

    Could he have mastered SM?
    If so, would that have been enough to beat Itachi flat out?

    Sasuke’s curse mark would probably interfere with the snake bite but if he got Perfect snake sage mode he would dickslap itachi

    I highly doubt Sasuke had the chakra reserves for Sage Mode at the time, but if he could he would probably be able to defeat Itachi

    If Hebi learned Sage Mode he would be able to beat Itachi straight up.

    It wouldn’t have changed anything.

    First off I don’t think Sasuke could master Sage Mode as his chakra is insufficient to balance the natural energy that’s why he needs the Curse Mark for Senjutsu.

    But assuming he did master SM; he’d gain the same x10 increase to his Jutsu CS already grants him so the biggest thing he could get is the SM sensing to enhance his speed, but he’d still get walled by Susanoo. Only way anything changes is if he could learn Haguki; then perhaps he could overcome Susanoo with that in connection with his Jutsu. But that’s a lot of beneficial assumptions at that point

    It's not about chakra control it's about chakra reserves. You need massive chakra reserves for Sage Mode that Hebi Sasuke doesn't have and IA Naruto does

    Itachi couldn't afford to hold back, but SM alone wouldn't be enough to give him a legitimate win when he'd still have no answer to Susano'o. Then there's the problem of SM even being viable even if he did learn it. He could end up being another Minato who can't make efficient use of it in battle.

    Surviving the cursed seal, being compatible with Jugo's flesh, and being Orochimaru's dream body when he was actively searching for a body that was compatible, aren't all more that enough? What quality could he even be lacking that people when people with more or less ordinary bodies like Minato and Jiraiya possess?:hm

    The only question should be if he has enough chakra or not, not whether or not his has a good enough body.
    Jiraiya, Minato, and all the animals that practice Senjutsu are neither.

    I’m not sure if he had high enough chakra lvls for it but if he did master it then he’d still lose to Itachi but he’d put up a slightly better fight

    What exactly does that have to do with the whole Indra/Ashura thing? Were you not talking about them being transmigrants or descendants of Indra and Asura or something of the sort?:thunk

    It depends on whether he has the Chakra to learn SM like the ones who learned SM in canon (Jiraiya, Naruto, Kabuto, etc.) There's not really a clear-cut answer to this.
