Given these points, he certainly had more practical experience during the war period than any other characters in the series.
Furthermore, his combat proficiency increased with each passing battle as he prepared himself to face such encounters in the future.

In addition, Naruto’s godfather has mastered tar attacks, the fire style, Rasengan, sage mode, along with the toad summoning Jutsu. He can also manipulate his hair to destroy his opponent or to defend himself.
Besides that, he had strong enough control over his genjutsu that it even managed to injure Pain.
Thus, in other words, he is unpredictable and can effortlessly adapt to any problem presented by his opponent.
