Kakashi and Orochimaru skills comparison
Kakashi: The reserves of his chakra are quite average due to his Sharingan. However, his chakra reserves are increased after the Fourth Shinobi World War when he loses his Sharingan and when Naruto gives him the six-path chakra. Hence, he is now able to combat long battles and develop complex skills.
Orochimaru: Orochimaru on the other hand has large chakra reserves which are enough to summon Manda. Moreover, he can absorb an opponent’s chakra, skills, and knowledge through physical contact.
Kakashi: He can use all five basic nature transformations along with the yin and yang release. In addition, he is recognized for his lightning nature. He once used his Chidori to slice a bolt of lightning.
Orochimaru: Similarly, he can also use all the five basic nature transformations including the yin and yang. Moreover, he can use wind, earth, fire as well as wood release.
Kakashi: His intelligence was evident when formulated a plan to take down Kaguya with team seven. Moreover, it was because of him that Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura defeated Kaguya in the ninja war.
Orochimaru: He acquired a substantial amount of knowledge when he worked for organizations such as ANBU and Akatsuki. Additionally, several times he used edo Tensei to fight against his stronger enemies.
