Considering Hashirama was being pushed back by the combined power, the removal of the Kyuubi did give him an opening by evening out the fight.
Where did you get that ?Quote:
Unless controlling Kyuubi with Sharingan takes almost as much power as it takes for someone else to fight it (which may be the case, although I very much doubt it), it's rather obvious that they weren't close at all.Originally Posted by Rikudou King
Say you and I are having a fight, and I have a bazooka with infinite ammo, yet you manage to take my weapon away from me and even beat me in the end, leaving you almost as tired and beaten as I am.... would you give me credit for being on equal footing if you spent half your energy dodging missiles when all I did was press a button?
Take Kyuubi out of the equation, and Madara becomes quite inferior.
Also it's weird that you would call his victory a clever trick as if "clever tricks" haven't been the most integral part in determining a ninja's skill level since the beginning of Naruto. That's what jutsus are, really. You take some chakra, do something with it, and it becomes something lethal. The "do something with it" is the clever trick part no matter what it is. If you want to claim that chakra capacity/stamina is what "real strength" consists of, as opposed to clever tricks, you'll have to grant that Naruto was stronger than Kakashi during part 1, that Shikamaru is one of the weakest guys around, and so on.

Probably for thematic reasons and foreshadowing.
Love trumps hate.
well Madare definitely is faster.
