Just look at the links xXan posted. Notice the distance in the first link
http://narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/441/17 - Distance he notices it.
http://narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/442/7 - Him stabbing each clone while dodging
And now the Raikage
Again, I am not impressed. Also not saying the Third isn't fast, but to say he's some speed demon like his son is a misnomer.

Minato in the battle is surely the fastest as he can teleport himself instantly to any location marked with kunais. Raikage A said after Minato's death no one is faster than him.
A is incredibly fast too that he was able to match Kyuubi Mode Naruto!
Well no question to speedy prowess of Kyuubi Mode Naruto.
This leaves for the remaining two......
Sasuke is pretty fast too. Tobi once appreciated Sasuke's speed during the fight with Deidara. Sasuke even part 1 was able to imitate Lee's speed and now with his given powers he's faster than ever. I'm pretty sure he can avoid FRS just like Tendo pain avoided it and Sasuke's faster. (except for that very close FRS against the 3rd Raikage)
Gai is a pretty strong candidate too. In gates wow even Lee had shown incredible blink eye speed. So he can do better. When asked by Kakashi how he fought with Itachi, he said he concentrated with Itachi's movements while not looking at his eyes. And it's his speed and taijitsu that remark him for that. So no question Gai can escape from FRS. (except for that very close FRS against the 3rd Raikage again).
Killer Bee(able to go toe and toe with Sasuke) and Kakashi can be candidates too .
We haven't much have time with the 3rd Raikage but his feats so far can be beaten with the conclusion that he can't be put in the top 5 so far. But still I'm impressed with his speed and one of the greatest shinobis out there!
Since there are a lot of disagreements, I'm going to list my top 2.

You should have the Second Mizukage about Suigetsu, they are from the same clan and the Second Mizukage has the Chibi clone jutsu thing of his which is a devastating attack.
Mei seems to have pretty powerful Suiton attacks as she managed to quell down flames from one of Madara's massive Katon attack that took several water guns to control on another occasion. I would put her right under Kisame.
The person I quoted stated that; just by HAVING amaterasu, you were automatically the greatest katon jutsu user in the narutoverse, something that is wrong when going by the topic rules. According to the person I quoted, itachi was and always had been the best katon user until sasuke gained amaterasu as well.
As an example I'll use this, hopefully it makes sense. Let's say itachi has amaterasu which ranks at 10. And he has 3 other techniques which all rank at 5. Now madara has 15 katon jutsu which all rank at 9. Who is the better katon user? I'd say madara.
The point I was trying to make with having mastered a certain technique was that just by having the strongest technique of a certain element, doesn't make you the greatest in that field.
As an example in my previous post I used itachi and sasuke's amaterasu. While both have the "ultimate katon" it's evident that sasuke is the better user among the two since itachi has not demonstrated any use of enton what so ever. Thus, making sasuke the better katon user in this case. My point being, just having the strongest jutsu doesn't make you the greatest user, since you also have to master it fully.
I hope I made a bit more sense now:P

Yup. This is why I can't keep Raikage (either one) on the same tier as Sasuke when it comes to Raiton mastery. It seems to be the common consensus that just because that one Raiton jutsu in their employ has so many uses, it makes them better at Raiton mastery than Sasuke, who has multiple different raiton for multiple different situations (one of which stated to be beyond what the Raikage are capable of performing).Originally Posted by scandalous'
Not to mention the difficulty and level of skill needed for each one. The Raikage rely on their Bijuu level chakra to just pump chakra through there body, and then use shape manipulation to condense it into armor. I think it takes far less shape manipulation skill to just coat your body than to make several different shapes with different effects (accurate chakra control, not just a lot of chakra). It takes even more skill than that to take control of an attack not made of your own chakra (say, a lightning bolt).
I guess all I'm saying is, the combination of strength, practicality, ingenuity, reliability, and versatility determines who would be the best.

There's another facet to take into consideration: what if all of Madara's katon are the same (regular projectiles) while Itachi's Katon/Amaterasu has multiple forms and types? Or Madara's take an absurd amount of chakra, while Itachi's doesn't?Originally Posted by scandalous'
These are just examples.
