After what we have seen of Minato, i don't see much opponents who could take him
Unfortunately Kabuto doesn't has a chance against him
A) It will take him far more then one second considering their sheer amount and the fact that he has to spread them once again
B) Manda can swipe them away once again just as fast
C) While Minato is wasting his time and isn't watching Kabuto he can prepare whatever traps and strategies he likes.
Bunta stomping Manda2... ? Seriously... Manda 1 was more then a match for Katsuyu and Bunta together, so I don't see at all how Bunta is stomping Manda 2, its completely the other way around.
Minato ripping Manda II away from Kabuto's control is bullshit... that would only work if Manda wasn't loyal to Kabuto and controled against its will like the Kyuubi.
If Minato wants to teleport Manda around --> fine with me. Nobody has preperation time in those fights, which means there are no hidden Kunai Tags 100 miles away. So... what exactly will he gain from teleporting that huge ass summon around a few meters other then wasting his chakra?
Kabuto can also afford to get hit, he survived a Rasengan from Naruto and was just knocked out for a few moments. Now that he has Oro's powers, who even survived being ripped in half by four tails Naruto, thats not nearly enough to kill him. He also only needs a slight touch on Minato to make (for example) his right leg useless for the whole fight... what better opportunity would he get then Minato attacking him with a technique that requires body contact?
A was quite far away when he started moving and Minato was able to react in the very last moment. That doesn't realy matter though because Kabuto indeed is far slower then both of them... although his reactions aren't bad at all if he can defend against something like Shizune's hidden needles with his forehead protector.Quote:
Kabuto needs to slow down Minato in some way, and I think his brains, his durability and his medical ninjtsu give him the means to do so.
It is Kabuto's loss anyway, even ignoring everything else he simply can't win against the might of popularity. Its completely the same as in the Naruto vs. Kisame thread: Even though both fighters where pretty much equal Naruto ended up stomping Kisame... which in turn makes my motivation to argue in this topic basically nonexistent, so have fun with whoever else wants to take that pointless job from me and don't expect any more replies from me.Quote:

Hell this is a oneway boodbath...Minato without any shadow of a doubt.I'd expect the biggest gap between
votes but it seems That will go to Nagato win over The Tsuchikage...how bias was that one lol.Anyway unto
Minato litters the area with his special kunai.And if he wants...spams his body ficker technique with either Kunai
or Rasengan in hand.It's over in seconds.End of.There will be no forming seals from Kabuto side.And even if he
could summon manda 2 it'd be a pretty fruitless exercise with Minato summons being way to much imo.Hell there's
no need for summons.Minato that dark!!
He can showcase his moves thoughout the tournment and still win.lol.

Hang on a moment there mate.Just because of his popularity is it?Minato has clearly showed that he was the
most complete shinobi that we've seen.I'm waiting for him to be paired against Itachi and see how that goes...
It be hard but i know who'd get my vote.And they are both my favorite charators.To even suggest that kabuto,
with his recent power up's and as you say.His sharp mind,was or is ever a match for Minato is lunacy lol.Kabuto at
best is Kakashi equal.And kakashi was and is a long ways behind Minato even now!

I agree about pupularity thingy, there will always be sth like that. BUT.. No, you were serious that Kabuto had a chance fighting Minato. Until he shows how capable fighter he is now, Minato just kills him before he even knows what hit him; and if he will survive how you wrote that Kabuto will then know the secret behind the kunais, Minato will do the second hit, but this time he will also know that Kabuto has some nice hax healing abilities and he will hit head, with Rasenagn to be sure its one hit k.o. Thats my simplest scenario for Minato.Originally Posted by LnDRash
Kabuto The Handicapped will have Minato ripping him a new one, basically. Not really a fair matchup, to be honest. In fact, I'm not even sure how Kabuto The Handicapped ended up in such high tier, since he's basically a very gimped and subpar version of Orochimaru.
Well the premise for the popularity argument is when the fighters are equal...which is not really the case here...even if Kabuto would've shown his entire arsenal and how talented is he in fact, he still would have no chance...Kabuto's strength lies in other areas than 1 on 1 combat
Not to mention that in most cases the popularity is the result of ones power...people like Minato, Itachi who are really popular, they are mostly because of their strength...and even if we count plot elements, like predicting and manipulating, that's still because of their insane ability as shinobi...
So yeah Minato wins this, because he is stronger and thus more popular than Kabuto

Can't say the same about Tsukiyomi, Frog Song, or Itachi's Genjutsu.
The common consensus is "they can't do it until they show they can". Not "he's immune to it until we see a pic of him subdued because of it."
In this top tier...I would put him around Tsunade's level or maybe Hidan's probably...but still worth to be here IMO
Minato easily. Without Edo Tensei, Kabuto haven't show anything that would make me think he can make Minato break a sweat.
Kabuto's only shot IMO is summoning Manda 2. Manda 2 is stronger than the Manda that was beating Katsuya and Gamabunta. After Gamabunta is dead Manda 2 can just wear Minato out.

mighty big IF their not quick enough.It's speed of thought against speed of thought plus lvl 1 and 2 ftg.It's a joke
to think that he had not faced anyone with genjutsu abilites thoughout his short life.The uchiha clan was still very
much alive and kicking.
I want the mods to fix it so he fights itachi or sasuke in the next round.I might get this request granted,as madara
already has his plce booked..''oh me sides''.
