Superb! I liked every part of the tournament. It was flawless.
Good. I liked almost every part of the tournament.
Above average. There were more positives than negatives.
Below average. There were many bad moments although some good.
Bad. The tournament sucked on every level, not much was good about it.
Other (post reason)
Hmm, so he'll be able to attack an Uchiha, completely blocking their sight, and still be able to see his target? You realize that he's attacking people with Sharingan, and, in Itachi's case, someone that can make a Kage Bunshin seal so fast that even Kakashi and Sasuke couldn't read the seal in time, and even blow up the KB. I don't really see the advantage of that.
If Pain can make a kawarimi quick enough to not be actually attacked by the hair, I'm not sure how Sasuke/Itachi can't.
Regarding Yomi Numa - In Sasuke's case, seeing as how it's an Earth technique, I would think Chidori Nagashi would be able to free him. In Itachi's case, it still doesn't really stop Susanoo from attacking with its sword (and for Sasuke, its bow and arrow)
I'm curious as to why he didn't use it more if "It's impossible to recover one's strength and escape from there." Does the description of Amaterasu claim that it's unable to be dodged?
@jdw - Where do you find the translations of the databooks regarding jutsu? That's actually really useful to have (like when I didn't know that Jiraiya's Endan already had oil in it)

You'd have a point of the image was from the side so we can see the jutsu propelling, missing, and then continuing... but you don't. All you have is an Amaterasu appearing on a target that disappears too fast to be ignited, and then the flames continuing onward. In otherwords, nothing.
Don't forget that the Kagami Shield alters it's elemental affinity to block all incoming attacks, and it also seems to surround Itachi. It's entirely possible that the shield will change to raiton elemental affinity and either negate the swamps suction, or outright repell the swamp from Itachi's body all together because it's doton.Originally Posted by UchihaHunter

Amaterasu's falmes appeared in front of Raikage, who moved to the side and dodged it.
Jdw's right, if it formed on Raikage, it would've immediatly ignited and killed him.
Why does Sasuke even care about the Samurai seriously ? He was aiming Raikage for sure.
If you're still not convinced, another evidence :

What you're LOOKING at. Because he was looking at the samurai, the samurai burned. Amaterasu goes where you LOOK. Change what you're looking at and you change what burns. Sasuke didn't want to burn the samurai, he was simply in the way of his line of fire. For example if he wanted to hit Gaara and Gaara put sand in front of himself the flames would hit the sand instead because Sasuke is now looking at the sand.
You guys are making this far more complicated than it actually is.

He turns and traces his vision behind Sasuke attempting to catch him, the flames following his eyesight. It's that simple.

Raikage was standing there when it came into existence. When it came into existence, it did not come into existence on Raikage. At best, it came into existence near Raikage. If it came into existence on Raikage, who was standing there, he would have been on fire. Because he was not on fire, and the fire came into existence when he was not moving, then clearly it did not come into existence on him.

Does anyone else think Gaara would have been a good matchup for Tobi? If Tobi wasn't trying to warp him away, it's likely Gaara might be able to beat Tobi with his sand. I also thought Gaara was a good matchup to Itachi, for the most part. Now I need to think of ways that gives Itachi a victory over Tobi, but it's very hard.
The flames appear on the target you are looking at, so why should they appear in the air in front of the target?
No, the flames appeared on the Raikage's chest, he simply moved quickly away so the Flames didn't actually have enough time to ignite him.
Its the same like making a campfire and then quickly swinging your bare hand through it... you will feel some heat but your hand won't catch fire because such a short time isn't enough for the fire to penetrate your flesh and spread.

Well Jiraiya can just be on the move constantly because as I have said, Amateratsu haven't exactly shown to hit a person that's not stationary in a sense. Perhaps it requires a great deal of focusing or something, I don't really know but every time someone gets hit with Amateratsu they're pretty much just there not really moving except Sasuke but in that case like you said, he was trying to get caught to trick Itachi.
Ameratsu appears where ever the user is looking. It appeared on the Raikage, but he moved so fast it didn't light him on fire.
Depending on how fast you move your hand not even a blow torch should cause a lot of damage. Maybe my skin would get burned a bit... but consider that I'am not coated in Raiton Armor and I can't move my body at the speed of lightning.
There's also to consider that in case of Amaterasu the flame was dodged in the exact same moment as it appeared, so it never reached its full burning potential.
Basically its like something that happened to myself when I was younger. I was refueling a lighter and somehow the vapors from the gas can soaked into my sweater and I didn't notice it. When I turned on the lighter suddenly my whole front upper body burst into flames, reaching even into my face. But apart from a little shock nothing happened because the fire lastet only for the blink of an eye.
Same phenomenon we have here.

He can teleport into mid air if need be and Gaara's sand doesn't explode. The instant Madara's intangibility runs out and he's struck by the sand he has to be gripped and then crushed inorder to have this moment taken advantage of. And if he's sucked underground his mole jutsu could potentially allow him to dig far enough away, fast enough to reactivate his warp jutsu. It'd be a good fight but I still would give the win to Madara based on the amount of effort Gaara has to put forth to hit him.
With Itachi however, he could send a Karasu Bunshin in the form of a flock of crows up to the flying Gaara to cast Genjutsu on him, making him fall from the sky paralyzed and land on his head for a quick and easy death while the real Itachi is either hidden or running from sand.
Honestly, if I could prove Madara could use Genjutsu (or any jutsu for that matter) while intangible he'd be literally unstoppable... but I can't.

how did sasuke dodge it for so long then? if it's instant then it should of hit him staight up.
Probably because he was moving so fast that Itachi with his eye sight almost gone had trouble focusing on him.
