see how easy it is to throw such lines and that they actually don't count as arguements?
1. MS jutsu(yes they ought to be counted as one...as they are all MS) and Chidori(yes cause they are variants and variants don't count)
And we can ignore summons,as we've done with naruto...we can ignore swordplay and shuriken as we've done with Naruto's taijutsu,scroll,kunai and shuriken...we can ignore katons as we've done with naruto's fuuton and chakra arms...and we can ignore genjutsu as we've done with naruto(here the only difference is sasuke was gifted his genjutsu through genes, and naruto actually has to work to do it by strategies and use of summons.)

Srsly speaking though, you are mistaking the existence of plot induced counter measures with the non-existence of factors/drawbacks which necessitated those counter measures in the first place. Its like saying Malaria no longer exists,or is a problem cause there is quinine. Just because there is an 'out', doesn't mean there was no danger/crisis...otherwise we'll have to agree that no work of fiction where hero comes out victorious ever had any crisis.

And my very point isn't that there's no drawback to the Kyuubi, it's that Naruto doesn't have to DEAL with them. Ever. Sasuke's MS usage has drawbacks that he suffers from. No one appeared in his brain and gave him more chakra so he could spam Amaterasu. No one repaired his Susanoo for him when it was cracking.
And that's the worse possible situation to compare if you're trying to prove a point anyway. Sasuke getting EMS didn't happen during the same fight, it took practically a MONTH. He had to sit through surgery and remain immobile for however many weeks (throughout the time leading up to, and into the second day of the war). You're comparing THAT to Naruto being in danger of going full tails for what? Maybe 15 minutes? An event that resulted in no consequences after (infact, the reverse of consequence. He BENEFITED by gaining a completely repaired seal)?
Sasuke was out of commission for a month, incapable of training or improving because he was bedridden, but these are similar? The only point you're finding here is the one you're making up. You have to grasp a truckload of straws to try to make your point of view click, and it's still not working.

About naruto not having to do anything, you do realize that minato couldn't stop naruto from tearing the seal again,right? It was naruto himself who had to stop himself from going over the dark side in every step of his miserable life. He was the one who ultimately made the choice not to give up, unlike sasuke. And that's why he couldn't use Kyuubi mode until recently. Similarly with sage mode, he had to come with the idea of scroll. He was restricted in his use of KB...so yeah drawbacks of kyuubi chakra and sage mode have definitely been factors in how naruto fights and what he can do and can't.
About being benefited from Minato's interference, its the same as sasuke being benefited from tobi and itachi's interference with a free pair of EMS. About being benefited in the middle of a fight, its the same as sasuke being benefited from karin and zetsu and tobi in the middle of a fight.
look my boy, just cause you are in desperate denial doesn't make what you want to see right.
It was never said that Sage mode's drawback was risk of blindness,or kyuubi chakra's drawback was risk of blindness. They were stated to have very different risks...a lapse period which puts the user in a vulnerable position during battle in case of sage mode and in case of kyuubi mode,it was the risk of losing life. I've given two manga canon instances where both risks came into play and had to be evaded by using 'outs'.
Similarly, the risk of MS was stated to be blindness and it came into play in sasuke's fights, which was also evaded using 'outs' . They didn't actually cause sasuke to go blind, or get handicapped permanently or even lose the battle...similar to how naruto never died or turned into frog or got stabbed in the lapse period using kyuubi chakra and sage mode.

Sasuke vs. Deidara: shunshin+kantana, chidori senbon, chidori spear, snake hands, shurikens+strings, genjutsu, chidori, snake summon
Sasuke vs. Itachi: genjutsu, shurikens, katon, chidori, body shedding, kirin
Sasuke vs. Bee: swordplay, chidori, Tsukuyomi, Amaterasu, chidori spear
Sasuke vs. Ee and co.: genjutsu, chidori, amaterasu, suanoo, enton
Sasuke vs. Danzou: susanoo, amaterasu, tsukuyomi, hawk summon, katon, chidori sword and spear
So yea, Sasuke have used a pretty large variety of jutsus in each of his fights.
Naruto vs. ANYBODY: clones + rasengan, rasenshuriken
I can pretty much sum up every fight Naruto has with make clones, opponent gets confused and gets hit with a rasengan/rasenshuriken.
I have backed up all my claims with manga facts. You haven't. All you've been doing is taking a couple of my posts out of context, while ignoring all the evidence I provide. At this, I'm tired of arguing with you because its pointless and a waste of my time. You provide no factual arguments and just cries "I know you are, but what am I" like a 5 year old.

From the looks of it, there's no creativity at all. All Naruto is doing is making rasengan, just different forms of it with different names that'd be totally useless and impossible without Kyuubi Chakra arms. The chakra he has is part of his own power since he got it (albeit with help), but the Kyuubi isn't part of his power like Sharingan is for Sasuke. With chakra arms, Naruto should be able to learn more jutsu easily instead of just rasengan.Quote:
Anyway, I don't see why this is an issue. In one arc, we've seen more jutsu/new jutsu from Sasuke than we have in the entire manga from Naruto. If Sasuke is a spammer, then Naruto is the king of all spams. He spams bunshins more than anyone has ever spammed any jutsu, and he spammed rasengan in one fight more than Sasuke has in his fights since getting MS. It's absurd to accuse Sasuke of spamming yet defending naruto or letting him get away with the amount of spam. Naruto gets away with anything because he's the main character, while Sasuke gets the flak although he's much better since he's the antagonist.
hey does anybody see similarities between Kingdom Hearts' Sora&Riku and Naruto&Sasuke?
except the part riku already "payed" for his actions
Secondly, where have you backed up your claims about rasengan variants being one with manga or db in your post? And don't try to go into semantics by using words like 'almost' before different. You are the not the one to determine how much 'difference' there has to be between 2 different jutsus...manga and db are there for that. So go and see the list of jutsu that naruto uses in db and tell me that it was mentioned there that naruto uses 2 jutsus as u claimed. show me the words of db/manga.
pointless examples since i've never denied that sasuke uses any of that. What i said is you deny when naruto shows variations in manga(and i merely mentioned what would sasuke's list of jutsu look if we applied the same priniciple to him)...which still stands.Quote:
and there you go, proving my point about you denying manga facts using your fancy way of 'summing up'...which if one were to use in sasuke's case would reduce him to using 2/3 jutsus as well as i pointed out before.Quote:
Naruto vs Orochimaru: 4tailed beast mode+bizu bomb
Naruto vs deidara and naruto vs kakuzu: both are more of skirmishes than full blown 1 vs 1 fight...use of kb, rasengan, kyuubi chakra, shuriken, futon rasengan
Naruto vs Pain: do i really need to go in depth here...kb,summons,genjutsu,taijutsu, frog-fu, smoke bombs, kunai, scroll, rasengan, double rasengan, sage mode rasengan,futon rasenshuriken, kyyubi mode
look i've lost interest at this point. If you don't read manga,then its not my job to make you read it. Go read the other fights and count the jutsus there, thank you.
Oh i love this. Me ignoring evidence and manga facts and 'your evidence'?i answered you right here and i didn't see you answering to this part of my post:Quote:
How is it me ignoring manga facts?Originally Posted by ashher
i've repeatedly said that i would only say sasuke has two jutsus if i were only to apply your way of ignoring manga facts as you've done with naruto. Either you don't understand plain english or its above your intellect that i following your reasoning(to which i disagree in the 1st place) to show something doesn't mean that I think it to be right.
What it shows is that your reasoning is faulty and you are the one ignoring manga facts(since your following your reasoning does that,as you yourself has pointed out) and you are being hypocritical trying to use double standards for whom you like and whom you dislike.
About you being loyal to manga...then go and count the number of jutsus of Naruto in manga and db. Thank you very much.
Your point is Naruto uses 2 jutsus. Plz show me any db/manga page where the list of Naruto's jutsu is confined to 2. That will be 'factual arguement'.Quote:
I on the other hand am perfectly prepare to link naruto's db page or the manga pages showing all the jutsus he used...which will amount to much more than 2,as you know. So who is the one doing 'factual argument' here?
Also i like the way you resorted to personal attack. You are plenty good at that. So stick to that since you can't use logic
---------- Post added at 02:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:31 PM ----------
Jiraya was one of the main characters, he died. We've seen B fleeing, we've seen kisame hiding, we've seen the rest of taka get caught when defeated. So whenever sasuke didn't win...kishimoto was there with the plot make-up to make sure that it doesn't look like sasuke lost either, not letting him go through any consequence that a lost person have to. So what's the point then?Quote:
BTW: which fights you consider Sasuke to have lost?
Apparently you feel this is the point. That you think that outcomes of sasuke battle weren't as 'magical', and him losing sometimes validates his wins as fair. You do forget that three/four of the worst 'magical' PNJ happened with sasuke fights:Quote:
1. Somehow Sharingan gained an unprecedented and never-to-be-seen-again power to turn your opponent's jutsu directly on your opponent when sasuke beat orochimaru's body transfer jutsu. Its not countering with same jutsu as kakashi does, cause sasuke was never shown to be capable of copying instantly like kakashi or that he can do body transfer.
2. Sasuke getting walkover from Itachi
3. Sasuke being able to summon manda when he didn't have any chakra left against deidara. Not only that, the swiftness with he had to capable of summoning and hiding in it after the bomb detonated at such close range is totally incongruous with his normal jutsus, in fact its incongruous for any ninja shown so far(perhaps except minato). Meaning it was impossible, PNJ
4. Hate causing him to break free of seal against danzo...unprecedented, never-to-happen-again capability of Hatred.
So i don't see how these are not getting rewarded by wins when he should've lost
About change of heart allowing naruto to win...only one instance can be found which can be remotely accused of that, which is Nagato vs Naruto. Funnily enough, Naruto was not in any apparent position to lose at the point when Nagato had the 'change of heart'(unlike how sasuke was sure to lose against danzo when Hate intervened). They agreed not to fight...how that was avoiding a defeat through change of heart is beyond me, since it was never indicated who had the upperhand at the point. It could be that Nagato was the one who avoided the humiliation of getting beat by naruto just as easily.

That's two fights where he would've lost thanks to his MS if someone else hadn't saved him.
Naruto however doesn't get saved from his opponents when the Kyuubi is breaking it's seal. On the contrary, his allies save his opponents from HIM. It's the complete opposite. One ninja's power causes him to need help to win a fight. The other ninja's power causes him to need people to calm him down after he's already won. Naruto has NEVER been in danger of losing a fight thanks to the Kyuubi, whereas Sasuke has already lost TWO thanks to constant MS usage.
You claimed that Naruto has consequences during battle from the Kyuubi, same as Sasuke has with the MS. I'm simply showing you that he doesn't, because they're always taken care of for him. As for it being different from Zetsu feeding Sasuke, the difference is that Sasuke couldn't fight afterwards. He didn't get any stronger, he was just capable of living (the chakra taken from Mei was just enough to keep him from dying, or else Karin wouldn't have needed to heal him afterwards). Another massive difference is the fact that the same exact problem happened to him again in the next damn fight, whereas Naruto's Kyuubi breaking out is taken care of against Pein, then isn't a threat anymore. It was a clear gimme, and after that, never a problem again.Quote:
Sasuke's price he pays for power is constant, balanced, and greater than Naruto's. It's simple fact for anyone not trying as hard as you are to delude themselves.
No you don't. Sasuke didn't gain any strength from his hate, he simply pushed himself harder because he was angry. It's no different from Jiraiya, despite his heart stopping, managing to write his code on Fukusaku's back. He was still working within the limits of the strength his body had, he was just ignoring his pain. All Sasuke did was activate a jutsu that didn't require his body to move. It's literally no different from Naruto creating chakra arms without moving.
Granted, he reached the next level of Susanoo this way, but that's because that's how the MS reaches it's next level: through the body being physically pushed to it's limits. You're either trying too hard, or not trying hard enough, I can't figure out which.
Yes he did lose. He wanted to kill them, his blindness and exhaustion wouldn't let him, so he FLED. That's a LOSS. The blurred vision allowed him to get caught with his pants down by Sakura and also forced him to give up. Same thing happened against Mei, but it was exhaustion instead of loss of eyesight.Quote:
That's not even the point. The point is that one character's risk not only eliminated any chance of him losing the fight, but it repaired any and all damage he had recieved prior, and was instantly, INSTANTLY corrected without him lifting a damn finger. The other ninja however:
1: Lost his eyesight
2: had to forfiet his battle (lose)
3: was out of commission for practically a month, deminishing the amount of time he could've been using to train, gather supplies, etc.
You're not gonna spin this any other way than what it actually is. And even if you did, someone else is waisting their time correcting you. I'm done.
no, the match was left unfinished. Had he been defeated, then he'd have died since kakashi was going for the kill. not one panel shows any 'fleeing'...don't twist things around when it was clearly tobi's intervention which stopped fight from progressing and not sasuke's blindness. (and he wasn't even trying to win/kill kages, all he was trying to do is get away from them which he did successfully)Quote:
My point exactly. The best consequence the 'risk of blindness' left was that sasuke had to adopt for it, or rather plot adopted it for him by bringing in other characters and keeping the fights 'unfinished'. No winners.Quote:
Same happened with naruto as 'risks of kyuubi mode and sage mode' necessitated involvement of other characters and adoption for them.
My point again. Note that you said he would've lost (contradicting your previous statement that 'he lost)...but i'm glad you noticed that the fights were left unfinished and other plot elements were brought in so that 'risk of blindness' couldn't actually 'make sasuke lose'...rather would've made him lose...if they were really risks(according to your definition of risk)Quote:
Similarly Naruto would've lost fights had it not been for other interfering plot elements due to 'drawbacks' of sage mode and kyuubi chakra.
Boldened part....blatant lie. Naruto will die if kyuubi breaks out in 9tails full form...that's been made clear as the daylight. Naruto has always been in danger of dying if he used kyuubi's chakra...so using kyuubi to win a fight has always carried its risk...as apparent from the fight against orochimaru and pain.Quote:
[QUOTE]You claimed that Naruto has consequences during battle from the Kyuubi, same as Sasuke has with the MS.[/QUTOE]
It sure had...naruto couldn't use kyuubi chakra after that. i already showed. However i'd still like to point out that i never mentioned about the consequences being in the same fight...though i wouldn't have been wrong if i did.
This is what you said:Quote:
you claimed no one appeared and gave him more chakra and i'm showing that someone exactly did that(though i couldn't show someone appearing in his brain exactly). Karin saved him, juugo gave him chakra...so your claim about sasuke single handedly dealing with the drawbacks/risks are proven false.Originally Posted by ninjabot
Did you notice that in the quoted part you claimed in no two senses...that no one takes care of the shit sasuke gets into. You didn't mention about to what extent the intervening persons could manage the damage...and NOW you are trying to make it a factor when your original stance was totally proven false.
So what? he should've died there if your claim that none helps sasuke to get out his shit was true...to prove that his risks are real according to your reasoning.Quote:
Sasuke couldn't handle MS, had help....Naruto couldn't handle Kyuubi,had help.
That Naruto's recovery was better isn't because that Kyuubi chakra was any less dangerous or risky than MS, but it was because Minato is a better help than Karin or Juugo or Zetsu.
Kyuubi breaking out was a problem vs Orochimaru too.Quote:
The 'price' sasuke pays doesn't stop from winning fight, or be prepared for the next fight, leave any permanent damage or doesn't become anything that hasn't been handled through plot elements like other ppl's help in the very same fights those manifest...to make sure that sasuke doesn't die, doesn't lose or be caught or be permanently handicapped...which were supposed to happen if the 'risks' were to kick in...Quote:
So they are theatricals(according to your way of reasoning). Fitted in the plot in such way that doesn't really cost sasuke anything. You can't see that cause you are biased as hell.
'Pushed harder"? what does push harder mean? is breaking a seal like child birth or worse yet , shitting when having a constipation? How does one break a 'seal' by 'pushing harder'? Show one other instance where a 'seal' was broken by 'pushing'. Prove that sealing technique, a special variety of ninjutsu can be broken by 'pushing'.Quote:
Since you can't figure out...i'll tell you...i don't NEED to try at all. You say its no different from Jiraya and Naruto...while you knowing that it IS...as you yourself said in the boldened part.Quote:
"Granted, he reached the next level of Susanoo this way, but that's because that's how the MS reaches it's next level: through the bodeing physically pushed to it's limy bits."
What happened there, was:
1. A jutsu insta-upgrade
2. A jutsu doing something it was never seen to be able to do before or after...susanoo breaking seals.
Jiraya neither had a jutsu upgrade, nor he evaded certain death like sasuke did there through sheer PNJ.
And prey tell where you found the bit of info that "that's how the MS reaches its next level:through the body being physially pushed to its limits"....link any manga page,stating that.
no he didn't lose, neither did he flee due to eyesight. He stayed a long time after that...had to be stopped by zetsu and tobi from going after naruto...and retreated. Kakashi wanted to kill him, Mei wanted to kill him... if the risks were real(according to your way of judging that's disregarding all other plot elements), Sasuke would've died. Since he didn't he didn't lose.Quote:
Unfinished=/=Lose ; Retreat =/=flee
What's not even the point, oh this:Quote:
I see why its not even a point, cause you can't answer to this...cause it totally floors your point about a month of bed rest meaning more dangerous than killing himself along with a whole village.Originally Posted by ashher
Cause unlike other ninja, lifting the fingers harder won't do jackshit for him...as it shouldn't.Quote:
Both of them needed others to help...how efficiently others could help him is a totally different factor which is neither relevant to whose risk was greater nor who can be credited more personally for dealing with the risks. Both of their credits go out the window once the other person intervenes and saves them
1. Didn't lose his eyesight as he can seeQuote:
2. Avoided getting caught or killed or even fleeing(retreat/unfinished0
3. The actual time when he was vulnerable, he was safely hidden in plot so nobody attacks him and kills him at the time(unlike orochimaru or itachi)
if the proof or the worth of the risks are to be proven only if they are actually came to happen, then both sasuke and naruto stands at the same plane...that neither of them have any risks cause plot shields.
you're not gonna spin this any other way than what it actually is. And even if you did, someone else is wasting their time correcting you. I'm done.
I like how, with Sasuke, Chidori variation is cool and he is so clever and smart while, with Naruto, Rasengan variage is lame. Like, Naruto is dumb and boring because he uses improved variation of an A rank jutsu while Sasuke does the same bar the improving part. I find that funny, also because, with Sasuke, we have "swordplay" and "shuriken" while with Naruto's taijutsu one says that it doesn't count, and bla bla bla. Also, wow, summoning a medium size hawk is great, while effortlessy summoning giant toads is, like, childplay.
I'm not bashing Sasuke, but I really don't like how Naruto is always downplayed, probably because Sasuke's fight were always better showed. Before Pein, Naruto didn't have a fight ( in Part 2 obviously ) when he had his moment to shine:
against Itachi's replica, he was supporting Kakashi and finished the fight. Same thing against Deidara. He destroyed Oro ( but that was the Kyuubi, not him, so it doesn't count ) and was beaten without effort by Sasuke. Then he goes and finishes Kakuzu ( an S rank nin ) with a single jutsu, and then we have the Pein fight. Imho, while Sasuke's method of fighting is definitely more elegant and thinked through, it lacks in efficency, because he pretty much uses jutsu after jutsu after jutsu while Naruto strikes one-two criticals hits.
Now, what ppl seems not to understand is that both had almost the same, one can say, "advantages":
against Pein, Naruto's ass was saved by Yondaime and Hinata, and against Kyuubi he was saved by Kushina. Against previous opponents, he had the help of Kakashi mostly.
Sasuke, except against Itachi and Deidara ( and excluding attacking a sick oro ) was saved time and time again by Juugo, Karin, Zetsu and Tobi. If they didn't help, he would've died against Bee twice or thrice ( Suigetsu's help was pretty much useless against the bijuu dama ), against Danzo when Karin cured him, against Mei when Zetsu replenished his chakra, against gimlikage when he was saved by Tobi before he was turned do dust.
They both had their best abilities handed down by someone elses ( Chakra mode by his parents, MS and EMS by Itachi ) at a cost ( Naruto pretty much risked his life time and time again, and put others in danger with Kyuubi's chakra while Sasuke had to live, even if for a short while, with the danger and fear of turning blind ) while being, in their own right, great fighters.
They are equals, 2 sides of the same coins, and they pretty much put every other characters to shame with their "free" power ups and the like:
recovering from an almost escaped Kyuubi? Freeing himself from a seal just because of "hate"? You name it, the two have it.
Imho is silly saying that Naruto or Sasuke has more than the other, because, and that is one of the central themes of the manga, they are equals. That is my opinion, nothing more
P.s to ppl saying that Sasuke's fights are oh so better and with variety and the like, lets compare Sasuke versus anyone, courtesy of chilibun
Naruto vs Kakuzu: KB + Rasenshuriken, not much for originality
Naruto vs Pein: Sage Mode + Rasengan + Frog Kumite ( the equivalent of any of sasuke's "swordfight" ) + Taijutsu fight against Deva Path ( breaking his weapon and all ) + KB + Oodama Rasengan + Rasenrengan + Rasenshuriken ( and I don't include the Kyuubi rampage )
Naruto vs Kyuubi: Sage Mode + Frog Kumite ( or whatever it gives him the strenght to throw friggin' Kyuubi around like a ball ) + KB + Rasengan Barrage + Rasenshuriken + Oodama Rasengan Barrage
Naruto vs Raikage: Chakra Mode + Chakra Arms + RasenShuriken + Kage Bushin + Sage Mode + Frog Kumite ( even if I think that the trans isn't exact, is the sensor power of Sage Mode imho that enabled him to dodge Raikage's attack ) + Rasengan
Naruto vs Everyone at war: Mini rasenshuriken, Kage Bushin, Kuchiyose no Jutsu, triple rasengan, rasenshuriken, oodama rasengan, rasengan barrage, bla bla bla bla bla...
So, like, I don't see that much difference, except for Naruto vs Kakuzu. It seems like ppl seems stuck at the beginning of Part 2, where Naruto was, pretty much, a loser. And on that, I think, everyone agrees
Orochimaru:won, Deidara:won, Itachi:"won", Kirabi:tied, Ee:tied, Mei and Onoki:lost, and Danzo:won.
1) Except we already knew that Sharingan can reflect mental techniques back onto their user since all the way back in Part One when Itachi did it to Kurenai.
2) Not sure at all what this is all about.
3) Um, Sasuke was never out of chakra against Deidara. And it was shown multiple times in that very battle, that both Sasuke and Deidara were fast enough to preform several actions as an explosion was going off. Heck, we directly saw him summon a snake a a shield against an explosion at the start of the battle. If Deidara can free his arms, create a clay bird, enhance it's size, and jump on it while in the middle of an explosion, Sasuke summoning Manda is nothing.
4) Sasuke's hatred towards Danzo simply allowed him to draw out more of his Susanoo, which was shown to be connected to his emotional state. Sasuke would have been saved by Susanoo regardless, the only difference would have been whether it had manifested more or not.
And Naruto was in a position to lose. We know everything Nagato was capable of and had he choose to fight, he would have easily defeated the tired Naruto, considering how he owned chakra cloaked Naruto.

Where was this stated? Sasuke couldn't die even if he lost because he is a main character is a poor excuse in the first place.Quote:
they hid,they got caught...none of which happened to sasuke. And we saw ninjas running away in this war.Quote:
What other losing but living ninja we've seen? not anybody that comes to mind.
So if sasuke was to be such one,losing but living,then he should've shouldered the consequence. So that others(who lost and died) do not show such outcomes does not excuse us from the fact that sasuke should've been written to go through them if his loses were to have any meaning/impact.
So kirabi, A, Mei and Onoki...last three were more of skirmishes though. Sasuke 'losing' them was hardly a factor that added to those fights 'interesting-ness'...since even 'losing' wasn't good enough to stop his 'plotshield'Quote:
I don't see any meaningful variety...as he was always guarenteed to live, or get away...because of his plot shield. So they were boring and tedious.Quote:
Is body transfer jutsu a genjutsu? Is kurenai's genjutsu equal to Orochimaru's body transfer jutsu in rank and strength and mechanism? can sasuke do what itachi could with genjutsu? what itachi did was called 'reverse genjutsu' or something like that...a particular tech,that sasuke was never stated to be able to do.Quote:
A win that was awarded to him magically...Quote:
Yeah sasuke did burn up is last bit of chakra...http://www.mangafox.com/manga/naruto/v40/c362/11.htmlQuote:
He couldn't even stand up,even his sharingan was gonehttp://www.mangafox.com/manga/naruto/v40/c362/15.html
everything indicates he was out of chakra.
and uh...which time you are talking about when you were mentioning Deidara?
either way, a PNJ in favor of Deidara doesn't stop a PNJ in favor of sasuke from being a PNJ. Also the range is a factor which you gladly overlooked. The last explosion was from nearly point blank,unlike the previous ones.
Its only your imagination that saskue would've been save by susanoo eventually since its never stated that susanoo can break seals. Recently we were shown that susanoo couldn't even free its user once his body is caught by mere sand...no reason why it'd able to do so against seal already on the body.Quote:
No we don't know what the handicapped nagato could do with his real body in his life. We don't know how much toll the attacking jutsus take on his body. Once again nothing but your assumption there. Nagato vs Naruto was a battle that never started...so there is no question of either of them being in a position to lose.Quote:
All raiton jutsu sasuke uses pierces. So should we count them as one? No. All the variants of rasengan have different ranges and destructive ability...and the manga counts them as separately...so that's good enough reason to count them seperately.Quote:

Tobi has lost but still lives, yet he has never beg for his life or ran away. And Sasuke has shouldered the consequences of losing. Getting beaten and going blind are consequences.
