Jiraiya, knowing that even in Sage Mode he would not be able to overpower three Rinnegan users who are able to share what they observe, decided to retreat. In addition to being able to respond to every physical attack, Paine is also a former student who knows all about Jiraiya’s abilities. To get around this particular fact, Ma and Pa propose the use of sound-based genjutsu, an area in which Jiraiya himself has very little skill. In their preparation for this attack, Paine has tracked down their location. To buy some time, Jiraiya cut the Rinnegan carriers off from each other, allowing him to finally fight one-on-one.
