Team 11 (Nnoitra Gilga, Mashiro Kuna, Rukia Kuchiki)
Team 12 (Tōshirō Hitsugaya, Gantenbainne Mosqueda, Shūhei Hisagi)
Team 11 should win. Mosqueda is the weakest among them and perhaps a disadvantage for team 12. Nnoitra vs. Hitsugaya is very interesting prospect. I wonder who would win. Among the remaining competitors, Mashiro can be beat Mosqueda easily.
As thornofcarrion stated, Mosqueda is the weak link of team 12 whom Mashiro could easily take out. I think she could actually hold both him and Shuhei off, with Rukia giving support.
Nnoitra vs Hitsugaya is pretty interesting. I think I'd go with Nnoitra on this one. His hierro should protect him from Hyorinmaru enough. The thing with him though is he lacks range which Hitsugaya may try to capitalize on. Well, until Mashiro comes in. Yeah, Team 11.
is cero not considered a ranged attack? so far i can remember, it is ranged attack and Nnoitora's seems more powerful than Toshiro's ranged attacks.
Nnoitra's cero wasn't really that impressive. It was caught by both Nel and Kenpachi, with one absorbing it and the other just swatting it out of the way. While I doubt he will be able to swat it away, I think Hitsugaya's bankai will give him the mobility to dodge it. Looking at his performance against Harribel, who had several ranged moves, it should be a simple feat. However at close range Hitsugaya is going to be screwed.
Uhh, do you not recall where Hitsugaya says the exact opposite of what you're suggesting?Quote:
.....I can see the case made for Noitora, by virtue of Hierro, being tough to freeze, but "the others"?
He beat an Espada 2 ranks higher than him, and specializes in longer range combat. Noitora, a close-range fighter with no speed feats is ill-suited to fight him.Quote:
I can't do this.

What? The guy Chad was well beyond is comparable to WW? Her mask won't be breaking any time soon in that fight. Gantenbainne would be lucky not to be ground into a fine powder in the first 3 seconds, let alone win.Quote:
Even if her feats were only of barely being able to keep up with WW (which they weren't, they were far better), it'd still be well beyond the scope of anything a Privarion can handle.Quote:
Seriously, Mashiro is one of the most underrated characters in this manga.
I suppose, but neither are in the same league as Hitsugaya, Noitora, or Mashiro. The low-end of characters can be written off entirely in the majority of scenarios. Sure, an extra guy here and there could pull a Hisagi and Tousenify a superior opponent, but we shouldn't consider these likely.Quote:
I always thought of Mashiro's mask breaking was some kind of effect of WW. He was made to seal RJ, but IMO it seemed he could nullify other abilities to a lesser extent; Breaking the ice encasing Hallibel, getting rid of Mashiro's cero, and somehow beating Kensei who we can assume to be pretty tough.
Also, although Fura may well have been no tougher than a gillian, I'd like to think it is still an impressive feat to destroy such a massive foe with one kick.
Not only be her claim, but by the claim of other vaizards, Mashiro is something of a prodigy with her mask related skills, no reason why she won't put it up immediately and blitz the crap out of other Ganteinbainne and then Hisagi.
