Entering Sage Mode, Jiraiya came face-to-face in battle with Paine with the assistance of the Two Great Toad Sages. They asked why he needed their help, to which Jiraiya replied that he had to kill his former apprentice. Accepting this argument, the Two Great Toad Wise Men discovered the chameleon in which Paine was hiding and forced him to show himself. Upon seeing Rinnegan, the toads recalled the prophecy that had been foretold to Jiraiya. It said that Jiraiya would have an apprentice with the power to both save and destroy the world. Watching Paine go about destroying the world, the toads were ready to fight. Paine, on the other hand, responded with a two-body call.
