Come on, you know Kishi has a special place in his heart for Sasuke. I bet his biggest regret in life was not naming the manga Sasuke.
Considering how Kishi's made Naruto look better than Sasuke, at least in fights, I'm sure he prefers Naruto.
I don't get what you're saying. Are you implying that Naruto would defeat Sasuke in a fight if you took away all of their special powers? If so, I guess I'd agree. Take away Sasuke's sharingan and Konohamaru probably whoops him. lol
No need to hate Sasuke, he's a pro at hand to hand combat too, so it could
or rather should behis fight when it's Taijutsu only, taking away Frog Kata out of the equation.

There's no way Sasuke should be in Naruto's class when it comes to taijutsu. Not anymore. Even if he's not in sage mode, the taijutsu training he went through to learn frog kata should have elevated Naruto to Gai's class.
Why would you presume that when we saw Deva Path and Animal Path didn't have much trouble fighting in taijutsu with Naruto . Sasuke manged against Kirabi using his sword without needing his Sharingan. So I would say Sasuke should at least be able to fight evenly with Naruto in taijutsu despite his training.
Sasuke has shown more skills in a fight than Naruto and is better than Naruto, as much as I don't wanna admit it, if you wanna take their skills away. Sharingan helped Sasuke, but it's not the reason why he's dangerous, it's his ability to fight. Same with Naruto, although Kyuubi did save his ass in so many fights as well.
No way? There's more explanation needed than a side effect surpassing life-long training in swoop. Do you have any evidence to reinforce your statement? They could be equal, but we will have to wait for the next "everything else is gone" fight to see solution to the question. :P

Sasuke never died once aginst bee so the way you used 'phoenix downs' is wrong. Sasuke wasn't brought back to life, he was healed from wounds. Two totally different things.
Look at the databook stats.Originally Posted by Schabrak
Naruto was never superior to Sasuke in any stat. Any stat at all, except for stamina. And that stat is only big thanks to him being born an Uzumaki. So the ONE thing Naruto was better than Sasuke at wasn't something he trained to be superior at. It was a handicap he was born with.
What does that say about who's superior, when the only way Naruto could be better than him at anything, was if it was something he had no control over? As for who's better now, remember that Naruto doesn't gain experience from his clones until they all disappear, and as far as we know now none of his clones have disappeared. His experience in battle is likely still inferior to Sasuke's. Then there's the fact that Sasuke, prior to each fight he's been in, was preparing himself and honing his skills. It's not like he was sitting in a closet cutting himself while Naruto was training.

Not to mention Naruto still makes moronic mistakes mid-battle that make any feats suspect. Like when he was fighting Nagato, JUST learned he was immune to ninjutsu, and his immediate response was to what? That's right: use a ninjutsu against him. Or when his ability to sense malice didn't protect him from a damn root in the ground. I can't for the life of me ever believe Naruto could go toe-to-toe with Sasuke in a full on Taijutsu match with them both at base mode, without him getting babyshaked.
