The Hidden Rain Ninja refused to tell Jiraiya about Paine’s current activities. Jiraiya removed Gerotora from his body, explaining his concern about the upcoming confrontation with Paine. He tells Herotora to place himself inside Naruto in case he doesn’t return. Herotora, who contained the key to the seal that kept the Nine-tail inside Naruto, recommended against it. Jiraiya insisted, convinced that Minato, for some unknown reason, wanted Naruto to possess the Nine-tail. Perhaps to fight Tobi.
