I wonder how was that one particular Pain got killed permanently. The same method could be used to kill those individual Pain currently in Konoha.
Any ideas/guesses? I'm leaning towards those buttons on Pains bodies and faces.
They skipped away from Jiraiya's/Pein's fight after Pein hit Jiraiya with one blow, afterward when they flashed back, Jiraiya was inside of a protect shield, and from what I could gather it was a last second move by Jiraiya when all the Pein's were inbound to crush him, 5 avoided it at the last minute but the first 'animal' Pein didn't. From what Pa Toad was saying none of the clones could get inside and Jiraiya actuallly had an opportunity to escape, but he needed to find the secret to Pein since he had gone that far.

I think the 'Ghost' pain will continue checking shinobi, and eventually he'll come upon someone the fans love. Its inevitable because he's searching for the shinobi who knows the whereabouts of Naruto. Tsunade, Shizune, Sakura, Yamato, Kakashi, Sai, and Shikamaru definitely are in the 'know' group, and their status is at risk because it seems Ghost Pain can rip someones soul out. Eventually ne will find out that he's away training, and they will break off and retreat. Not from fear, but lack of purpose, thats my best bet.
