The two characters in naruto manga:
Orochimaru: Orochimaru (大蛇丸, Orochimaru) was one of Konohagakure's most powerful ninja: a legendary Sannin, but defected from the village in pursuit of his own self-seeking desires, such as learning every technique. Prior to his defection, he was an ANBU-level shinobi and a member of the Root faction. He was the main antagonist throughout most of Part I and a major antagonist in Part II.
Kabuto:Kabuto Yakushi (薬師カブト, Yakushi Kabuto) is one of the main antagonists of the series, who was first introduced as a Konohagakure genin. He was later revealed as Orochimaru's personal medic, assistant, and general right-hand man. After Orochimaru's sealing, he joined forces with Tobi during the Fourth Shinobi World War.
if Orochimaru still alive, and we know this type of Kabuto since the naruto 586, so compared of them, who is more awesome in your mind?
Orochimaru is the teacher of kabuto,but kabuto is more clever......if Orochimaru's parents did 't die .Orochimaru will not be so bad...
