His curse seals he helped create optimize a person's existing abilities enhancing them to their maximum potential. Sasuke while he had the curse seal didn't have sage chakra nor did he ever gather it. His seal like all the others allowed him to use his full potential early instead of waiting for his body to naturally reach that level. Sage energy on the other hand allows outside energy from all living things to enter the body enhancing it with abilities uncommon of what it had before. While they may seem vaguely similar they are very very different.
Oh and by the way he is referring to kabuto's transformation idiot. Look in the picture and you can see kabuto in sage mode.
As far as orochimaru combining with sasuke, that won't happen either since orochimaru has just taken a zetsu body for a host nor can he simply jump from one body to the next at a whim. It takes time for him to jump from one body to another which is why he can't automatically just merge with sasuke.
How can you transform into a sage, but not become a sage??? You have just blown my mind...
Juugo's KKG abilities comes from ryuchidou training in senjutsu. Juugo even confirmed himslef that the curse seal power is just another name for the original. Sennin power that allows the user to transform into a sage.
How is Juugo not a Ryuchidou snake or dragon sage?
sasuke when he was using curse seal power was a sage, using the SAGE chakra that Oro implanted in his body with the bite which was confirmed when he stated he poured his sage chakra into Anko's curse seal as well, thus was the power that was being drawn on the whole time making sage copies...
And When sasuke drew on that sage chakra fully, it mixed with his creating a lower level sage chakra, but sage chakra none the less which made sasuke a sage too like Juugo...
What else could increase the users chakra times 10 by just adding something to chakra other then Nature energy or already created sage chakra?
I never said that oro was going to pur his spirit into sasuke like Before. NO! I am talking about Oro physically merging with sasuke since it has already been confirmed that the secret of the Uchiha's body is their body easily accepts the cells of the Senju which Oro is using... to unite the young and elder son's of the sage's powers as they were...
SO oro should easily be able to do so if he chooses to, that is.
