Forum News: Cast your votes to determine the best parent in the Anime Showdown.
I promised I'd vote when the new chapter would come out. well,there were neither Darui nor Tenzo in this chapter,but I have to vote someone. I've voted Darui because I think he is a bit stronger,and because his raiton overcomes tenzo's doton.in suiton they are equal,and they both have got a kekkei genkai.
I've seen this line of reasoning and it is not sufficient enough to cast a vote for Darui. While Darui's lightning beats Yamato's earth, Yamato's earth beats Darui's water. Darui and Yamato have equal elemental advantage in both water and water. Darui and Yamato have equal elemental advantage in both lightening and water.
Yamato and Darui both have a kekkei genkai, an elemental compound (two elements combined), an elemental advantage over the other, and two elements that are of equivalent strength.
That said, what evidence can anyone provide to determine insight as to the outcome of this fight. I still haven't voted.
I'm starting to go for Darui here...in taijutsu we can probably agree that they are both around the same level...we've seen no genjutsu so there's only ninjutsu left...but there is also swordplay which gives Darui the edge here...we've seen that lightning based weapons can hurt Mokuton, and we know that Darui possesses not just a sword, but also shuriken and other stuff that can be imbued with Lightning...
However Yamato can easily go for restraining him and sealing his movements...he can easily grow trees from the ground to immobilize him, and we saw that he has the speed to get even Madara in his grasp...but I think Darui can get through thanks to the his lightning based weapons...he also has long raged attack, the panther move seems pretty large in order to electrocute him unless Yamato shields himself...
He can follow up his water element with the lightning just like he did with Sasuke and no doubt that will give him an opening...he will surprise Yamato...
So I think a surprise attack and follow up with lightning charged weapons gives Darui the edge here...though I can think of scenarios where Yamato can win over Darui
Like for example restricting his moves like he did with Madara, and in the next split second he grows spines from the branches to stab Darui...
It's tough but Darui has a bit of an edge working in his favor...I think
