    Gai vs Raikage

    If there already is a thread like this then I apologise.

    Just wondered who would win this extreme clash of tai jutsu.

    Conditions:

    -Open Battlefield
    -Gai can go up to seven gates

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    I would go with Raikage. I think Gai gates are very very dangerous, he don't defeat his opponent then he is defeated by the damage the gates cause to him. I believe that is the case in this battle, Gai would be winning until the side effects of the gates, then it's over for him.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    Depends.

    The Raikage is certainly the front runner. However, if Gai goes up to 7 Gates and can use a technique to kill/decimate the Raikage, then things might be over for the Raikage and Gai can walk away.

    That's the best case scenerio for Gai. Second best is they both die by him going 8 Gates.

    Worst case, he just out right loses.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    I think Raikage has the speed to dodge's Gai's 7 gates attacks, so he would win this even with just one arm and without too much harm to himself IMO.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    We haven't seen alot of Raikage in action yet compared to alot of other characters, so I'd say its safe to say we haven't seen his true power. And he's already been able to pretty much own Sasuke. Plus hes Kage level, and seems to be a pretty old one at that. And theres no information to suggest that his experience and age has reached the point where he's not as strong as he was in younger years, in fact he seems very energetic. So my moneys on Raikage.

    Well Hirudora looks very strong, but in reality it didn't even mange to kill or seriously injure Kisame. Yeah it gave him a lot of bumps and bruises, but as we saw he had plenty of strength left, which to Yamato's surprise, he used to break out of the Mokuton restraint jutsu. And judging by E's Raiton Armor and how easily it completely blocked Sasuke's Raiton sword and forced Chidori to only cause a little more then a scratch on E, i think its fairly safe to say that E could take on Hirudora head on and survive. And thats not even taking into account E's obviously natural physical superiority to Kisame and almost every other character as well. Either way that would be the absolute worst case scenario for E. Because his speed seems to be able to allow him to dodge basically any attack, particularly ones that are "launched" or "fired off". And Gai even in the 7th gate never showed signs of any real speed himself, at least in terms of movement. So at this point E seems to be much faster then Gai, in terms of movement speed. And in the end speed wins.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    we've only seen Gai use taijutsu and in the end, his most powerful didn't harm Kisame that much. Raikage has the advantage of having superior ninjutsu and he did appear to be faster. Yeah Gai's seven gates did manage to cause a shit-ton of destruction to his surroundings but it all felt rather superficial. Not to mention Raikage completely shrugged off Juugo's attacks and he could probably pose a threat to Gai. Raikage is in his own league as far as speed and ninjutsu/taijutsu are concerned (not counting space/time techs)

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    That would be a fight! Raikage is a beast, but so is Gai. I don't know. Gai might probably loses, but I'm not sure.

    Noon tiger is hell of a attack. Considering that it is suposed to kill. I know, Guy like kisame survived it, but we have seen Kisame heal from tough wounds like nothing before (When bee ripped his chest out).

    It is hard to tell, i will go with draw. I mean, Noon tiger is also superfast, but raikage is also one of the fastest charakter...

    That could also be because of Kisame's inhuman strength and stamina though. We've already seen that he can take a lot of damage and has enormous pain tolerance. He got his chest blown to pieces and all he had to say about that was "you got me..." with a smirk on his face. His stamina must be insane and thats probably also the source of his inhuman chakra imho.

    Gai called the Noon-Tiger an instant killer move, so I'am quite sure it would mess up even someone like Raikage badly. Thats if he can land it of course... lol

    If Gai goes 6 or 7 Gates and Raikage goes Raiton Armor it would turn into a DBZ fight: nobody could see whats happening because they move so fast, they would just feel and hear the shockwaves from the clashes of their punches xD

    Well Kisame was so confident and unshaken after getting his chest torn apart by Bee mainly because he had Samehada right next to him to fully heal him. And a large part of his chakra and stamina were directly linked to Samehada as well, as Chojuro pointed out. Also i don't remember Gai calling Hirukuro an "instant killer jutsu", all i can see is that he called it a "deadly tai-jutsu". Either way Hirudora was little more then just a very flashy and hyped up jutsu that had very underwhelming results. For something that created this large of a "boom" Kisame should have been reduced to nothing afterwards. Yet as we all saw he just had a lot of bumps and bruises. While one of E's normal punches drilled a whole in Jugo. And once again Gai hasn't showed anything close to great movement/foot speed while using the 6th or 7th Gate. I mean he had to have Bee throw him and summon Ningame to try and catch Kisame via jumping. If he was anything close to being as fast as E, then not only would he have ran but he would have caught Kisame long before Kisame reached the ocean.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    Is it possible this is a new translation? I'am sure in the version I've seen he said something like "this attack is different then anything you've seen before, its a one hit kill".

    You are right, he was confident because of Samehada, but with your chest torn to pieces I would assume one would be in extreme pain and yet he endured it with a smirk on his face.

    I also have the impression that Gai is extremely fast in gates mode, could be because of the anime though. I always have to remember like Kisame's body double was jumping up those water fountains and suddenly Gai appeared right in front of his face, leaving him no chance to react.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    If the seven Gates can only perform the noon tiger, then Gai don't need to use it. it would simply leave him open for a attack after Raikage dodges it. Like i said before Gai could win if the Gates wasn't a double edge sword.

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    we probably gonna see a fight like this but between Gai (or Lee maybe) VS the old Raikage (the edo tensei summon).

    Will be pretty much the same

    Re: Gai vs Raikage

    Raikage is basically a suped up Gai. Both are mainly a taijutsu fighter, but Raikage is much stronger and faster than Gai. Imo, a gated Gai is just around the base Raikage level. A raiton armored Raikage curbstomps him.

    Lets review Raikage's resume:
    - bijuu level chakra
    - power to chop off eight tail's horn and break susanoo's bones
    - speed to evade amaterasu
    - durable enough to brush off a direct chidori hit and hold off amaterasu flames (to an extent)

    That's a lot of stuff gated Gai don't have or can't do.
