Naruto X Hunter
Sasuke can absorb his ninjutsu including shadow clones and Kurama avatar. Evade attacks, redirect them to hit Naruto & better set up his own with teleporation (could have immediately killed him if he sliced him in half like Madara, or in pieces, instead of smacking him away with Chidori). All Naruto has left is taijutsu which gets shut down by Susano.Is there a statement in the manga that says it? As far as I remember, Hagoromo said Ashura is the next to bring peace through Ninshu. With training, he unlocked his potential to catch up to Indra. I mean he could be stronger idk. I'd like to think so considering Hashirama gapped Madara badly along with Naruto against Sasuke.
