As far as wind, baku hasn't shown much, so he may be something great, but we don't have enough evidence for or against that, even temari has been shown to be more skilled than baku with fuutons, I would have to give that to naruto, the day he learned to throw rasenshuriken and make mini-rasenshurikens he surpassed danzo's fuuton level.
I agree with all the rest though, I still think sasuke's kirin was just the creation of a lightning rod, and nothing special, he may as well have thrown a big metal rod or some iron filings over itachi, that would have had the same effect, people are acting like sasuke gained the ability to call lightening whenever he wants to, he didn't he just relied on it happening independently of him anyways and then created conditions that caused it to go where he needed it to go.
We have yet to see sasuke call any lightening on a clear, sunny day for example, that would be godly, especially since it doesn't use any of his chakra, but he has not shown that ability and probably never will.
As for summoning lightning, going by the mangas laws of physics (which are extremely flawed) he can use his own Amaterasu to create Kirin when ever he wants.
From what i can see your post falls under 1 of 2 things:
1-You where stating Sasuke does not have mastery over Amaterasu and that would make your post nonsense.
2-You where not stating Sasuke does not have mastery over Amaterasu and that would make your post irrelevant.
In case i did not get your post please elaborate as i sure don't get what you are trying to say.
Now why is Sasuke>Itachi in Katon? Because he showed greater mastery over Amaterasu and even stronger katons (normal ones) as he was pushing Itachi's Katon BACK forcing Itachi to shoot Amaterasu or be burned alive (well i gues he could also use Susano but that is another thing).
Having multiple ranges is useful, but these techniques are of varying use and power. And Chidorigatana is just chakra flow along his blade.Quote:
Yes, Kirin requires little chakra as a technique. However, the chakra requirements to set it up are massive, and of course there is the time it takes to do so. The damage is impressive, it's just that quite a few others have shown attacks of equal or greater power. And saying that there is no damage limit is a bit pointless, it's limited by the energy in the atmosphere, which is limited by the chakra required to add to that energy. The same could be said of almost any technique; the more chakra, the bigger attack is going to get.Quote:
The Third has multiple lightning element techniques, but his lightning armour has no equal amongst Raiton techs. This singular technique allows him to rank among the top 5 in speed, it gives him defence that is perhaps only exceeded by Susanoo itself, and provides a massive boost in attack power. This technique alone allows him to compete with some of the best ninja out there. Add Hell Stab, with its massive attack power, and you realise that utilising Raiton alone the Third is capable of taking on almost everyone in the manga with few exceptions. He became a legend because of his usage of lightning element techniques. Using only Raiton, he would be able to accomplish far more than Sasuke could dream of achieving. For me this puts him beyond Sasuke, by quite some margin.Quote:

Surely Third Raikage and A are beasts but Sasuke generally beats them in the Raiton Department. His versatility and chakra manipulation is above the two.
Kirin may be limited as a shot but to summon-tame the Lightning Dragon in the air is I believe the greatest feat a Raiton user can do. And only Sasuke can do it . Even if he was helped by Orochimaru still he is the only one who can do it!
This is the speed of a FRS:
So the FRS was DAMN close, then Naruto's clones poped and he had to stab them and then when the FRS was some 30 cm from Pein he could jump out of the way...
To state that i am not impressed with the speed of FRS would be an understatemant...
The Raiton Armor he uses does not increase speed, nor does the A's. It increase their reflexes. These two shinobi are already incredibly fast because they are huge and have massive muscles. This is a misnomer that everyone likes to point out.
The Raikage always had the speed to dodge Amaterasu, he simply lacked the reflexes without powering up. Same thing happened when fighting Minato. He proved on foot he is faster than Minato, but he needed his Raiton Armor's ability to increase his synapses to react to his Hirashin (which was moot seeing as how Minato tagged him). Minato's reflexes surpassed his own, allowing him to react and use Hirashin just quick enough where A didn't take his head off.
