I ask everyone again. Please consult the rules thread for some general information and guidelines during discussion. The opponents don't know about each other, except widely known information. Like Uchiha having Sharingan, or Hyuuga having Byakugan. Broad information, nothing specific.
where is it said that Hashirama could use Kokuangyou no Jutsu? i can't find it...
ps: Shodai has nothing that can kill orochimaru....
IMO Hashirama wins this fight: while he can't kill Oro, his darkness genjutsu would definitly give him an opening, and he would be able to grow a massive tree and trap Orochirumaru, growing tendrils inside and stabbing every inch of his body so that he can't move or oven use the Kusanagi sword to cut the tree.
I'm sure Hashirama's wood is hard enough to handle the full powered Kyuubi's strenght for a while, otherwise he wouldn't have survived against Madara, so I'm confident that he could pull that off against Orochimaru.
Bringing Hashirama to this tournament was a huge mistake
But as him was allowed to join, i will have say the same i said against Killer Bee.
Hashirama takes this IMO !

Oro doesn't vomit himself instantly: he waited a bit against Kyuubi Naruto without his arm, and even if he oral rebirthed, the tree would still grow around him and trap him.
Hashirama could also start growing the tree around Oro first so that he doesn't notice it, and then immobilize him with the tendrils.
Hashirama's wood are quite fast, so he definitly can pull that off.
Oro can use Fushi Tensei for the win.
He can use Yamata no Orochi in such a situation as well to guard against the trees, so...the genjutsu is no problem...and when he decides to go White Snake form, which takes no time, as opposite to Oral Rebirth, the game is over...cutting himself to unleash the poison in the blood will render Shodai quite useless

I doubt Oro could escape underground because of the tree roots, he wouldn't be able to pass them.
Also, white snake form could be trapped even more easily, since we don't know if it can use the sword of totsuka while in that form and it isn't that fast really.
Yamata no Orochi would be bound by Hashirama's jutsu as well.

Hashirama's mokuton jutsu was able to bind Bijuu's, Oro doesn't have that kind of strength.
but he broke Sasuke's genjutsu he only loses to sharringan genjutsu one of which he beat easily only Itachi gave him problems read the manga you see him breaking out of the jutsu

and the Yamata no jutsu makes him bigger then some Bijuu if he is binded it would be for his small body upon which his new huge body would break out of plus in the yamata from he can bring out the Kusagari and destroy the tree binding him
Hashirama's mokuton are different than normal trees, and I doubt that he could merge with tendrils stabbing his body, not to mention he probably needs to do handseals to perform the jutsu.
Also size doesn't really matter in terms of strenght: Bunta is as big as the Kyuubi, but the Kyuubi is much stronger.
While the blood of the white snake is numbing, it took some time to have and effect in a closed room; in a wide area, with the white snake being trapped, I doubt that it would affect Hashirama before Orochimaru is trapped.
Also, Oro is cocky as shit, he laughed when Itachi stabbed him with the sword of Totsuka, if Hashirama starts to trap him the tree, Oro would take his time to react, only to find himself completely trapped and under gigantic pressure with no chance of escaping.
Lastly, even if it comes to a contest of stamina, I think Hashirama has more than oro in virtue of having the Rikudo's body, which, as we saw with Danzo, grants stamina.
