We've seen Kage-class ninja be completely controlled by genjutsu...I doubt that reaching that level automatically gives you immunity to genjutsu, and let's not forget that Itachi's Tsukuyomi only needs a few seconds to be effective.
Also ok let's use you logic. Itachi can deflect teleportation and redirect it direcly inside a rock, show me him unable to do that lol. As you stated "Take your time".
I can post a huge list of elite ninja that got owned by genjutsu but Minato is not going to right? Let me gues why because of his fanbase and your love for him... Don't wory he will win this fight like all the others. Of course a logical arguement on how he will fight Itachi's genjutsu will never be presented and the only thing that will be stated is the completly inlogical line "just because he never done it does not mean he can't do it" from people that can't even read the tournament rules. The fighters can only be considered as they have been shown on panel or text. Of course i have no problem with corelations and some logical detuctions but Minato has absolutly no feats in genjutsu.
Give me some logical evidence why Minato will be able to take Itachi's genjutsu and not the ridiculously inlogical line "just because he never showed to be able to counter it does not mean he can't".
At this level of combat, there has to be something more, I am sorry if you guys don't agree. I only get one vote so if you are more persuasive it shouldn't be a problem.
I am not permitting Itachi to one-shot the most powerful people in the Narutoverse without any basis whatsoever. If Itachi wins here, and faces Naruto, my assumption will be that unless Naruto shows genjutsu defense in the next few days, he dies pretty quick because weakness was displayed. I am not saying Itachi cannot win with genjutsu, because he definitely can, but for me it isn't an automatic assumption because Minato has never had to defende/face genjutsu in the manga. There is no free pass for itachi when people have not shown a weakness to genjutsu.
minato wins easily. nagato was much stronger than itachi.
You can also look below you how Minato is going to win. Because people don't care about a logical argument and only go "woo Minato him win yeah".
Also Naruto showed genjutsu defence ... Clones...
Itachi's got this in the bag.
I think it really comes down to what standard you hold the ninja's competing to; I could easily say that Minato tosses a kunai, Itachi deflect it and then Minato teleports to the kunai and Rasengan's Itachi, but since Itachi's a s-ranked ninja I assume that he'd last more than a couple seconds against Minato. I don't think either of these guys would go down that easily. Maybe if Minato attacks first, Itachi reflexes and sharingan would prevent him from being killed right of the bat, but Minato would be able to place a seal. If Minato gets caught in a genjutsu, about the same level as the one placed on Naruto, he would be able to get out of it if he summoned a toad right? If he can't get out by himself.
I understand what you're saying, but we already know what works on Tsukuyomi, no? We can basically run a checklist on it.
Does Minato have Sharingan - No
Does Minato have Uchiha Blood - No
Does Minato have a Bijuu - No
Kakashi had Sharingan, but no Uchiha Blood...he got one-shotted.
Orochimaru is a genjutsu master, and he was pwned by a regular Sharingan genjutsu.
Sasuke had Sharingan (two tomoe) and Uchiha blood, but he got pwned by it.
Deidara got pwned by generic genjutsu.
Naruto got training on how to defend against Genjutsu, and got pwned by it, while the Itachi clone was fighting Kakashi.
Bee actually got caught by Sasuke's Tsukuyomi for a bit, before the Bijuu broke him out...and we already know from the Kakashi fight that he doesn't need much time to injure you pretty badly.
It'd be like me saying "well, I can't see a Kage-level ninja losing to a kunai, it's too generic and lame" or "I can't see a Kage-level ninja losing to an A rank technique like Rasengan." It makes no sense. We've seen that Rasengan is a powerful technique, and we've seen that if you're caught in the wrong situation, a kunai or a sword can end you.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!! Decisions, decisions! Too... much... bad...ass...ery! If you all feel the same, I have glorified the epicness of each contender here. I will probably wait after this discussion gets intense to see who I'm convinced to go for! This is the best match of the tournament!
itachi was very fast,I don't know why anyone refferred to him when it was talking about fast ninjas. sasuke was almost as fast as A,even if a bit slower.itachi was faster than sasuke. but minato owns itachi for speed.
How many times he made eye contact with Madara and Raikage hmm?Quote:
