Itachi could but certainly it won't be any longer than Gaara being able to maintain the change in battlefield. I still believe Itachi's best way to win this is via his genjutsu rather than his MS.
It kinda was a stand off...the sand was still there, but so was the Amaterasu...also, does it take chakra to keep your Amaterasu burning? Itachi's was burning well after his death, lol
And yea, Gaara can definitely go into the air, and he definitely can do it quickly. He pretty much fought Deidara while in the air for most of the fight, despite not starting in the air.
Edit: Concerning Amaterasu
According to Zetsu, it was reflecting all of Sasuke's attacks
And it did reflect Sasuke's sword (unless you're taking reflect to mean it directly reverses it, a la Mirror Force or something, hahaha)

He did it with Deidara.Quote:
The only way I see Gaara having any sort of chance of winning is to go into the fight knowing Itachi's arsenal. He could avoid Tsukiyomi with the Third Eye, toss aside Amaterasu like he did against Sasuke, and create sand under Itachi's feet while he's in Sussanno (I don't think the ground is covered in chakra). But he doesn't know anything so Itachi would most likely take him out before he could really do anything - though he might be able to dodge some Amaterasu until Itachi gets serious.
I don't think Gaara needs to worry about the sand if it's Amaterasu'd, as long as he doesn't bring it near him. That'd actually come back to bite Itachi in the ass since Gaara would have more weapon to hit Itachi with, though that can be debatable as well since I'm not sure if Amaterasu burns other stuff as well, like if it would catch Itachi on fire. It'd definitely burn him though.
And I think Itachi can turn Amaterasu off if it's in danger of burning him, seeing as how he turned it off on the Sasuke kawarimi >_>
Yeah I agree which is why I still think Itachi needs genjutsu to win this lol.
He could but he would have wasted chakra then which would turn back on him later on.
When he roughed up Kakashi-tachi, then beat up Sasuke, and ran from Jiraiya, he was in fairly decent condition, despite using Tsukuyomi twice and using Amaterasu, along with KB, Bunshin Bakuha, and Suigadan. It's sorta like the Kakashi thing. I understand Kakashi doesn't have Naruto-level chakra, but he made out just fine against Kakuzu, while protecting Ino, Shikamaru and Chouji, and fighting against Hidan as well. Itachi against Sasuke had to use Amaterasu twice, got Tsukuyomi rebounded on him, and had to fight Sasuke at a high speed from the beginning, and he still had enough chakra to block Kirin with Susanoo, wtfpwn Orochimaru, and press Sasuke to the end. If he's not dying from his illness, I think he'll be alright turning off Amaterasu IF there's a chance of him getting burned by it, lol...if the fire is that widespread, I would think that a stab with the Totsuka Sword would be much more viable.
Kakashi and the group that was with him.
Also, while the initial activation of Amaterasu (and the tracking via sight) is fast, I don't think that the burning flames move with some ungodly speed that he wouldn't be able to react to >_>
Also, if the Amaterasu is just on the sand, why is it "so many Amaterasu"?? Isn't it just one Amaterasu?
