Kakashi's, hands down:
he is the perfect ninja imho, even more than Itachi, since he usually outsmarts his opponents while waiting in the shadows to exploit their mistakes. He has a wide variety of jutsus ( not the whole 1000 jutsu crap, but actual jutsu ) and while not having a Gekkei Kenkai has 3 elements at his disposal that he uses smartly. And when he can't hide he can pretty much hold his own against almost any fighters, since he his pretty strong in Taijutsu and in Ninjutsu.
Also he uses his Sharingan as well as any Uchiha, his Kamui is top notch, and with that any Genjutsu that isn't Tsukuyomi is pretty much useless against him. His only limit are his reserves, but that is what makes him even more likable, since he managed to be with the strong guys without having great amounts of chakra or overly haxed jutsus or plot induced abilities
Totally going with Itachi .... i would go with Kakashi as a second if i could but sadly for him, his stamina / or chakra control isnt as good as Itachi's thus makes the whole difference in their fighting levels.
Itachi is the most versatile fighter in Naruto we've seen so far.... Doesnt waste a single movement and has yet to show a flaw in his fighting style specially when he's top notch in so many fighting categories... (Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, Taijutsu, Speed, Intellect, Seals ...)
Speed is the thing in Naruto and so far only Shinobi displayed that on the highest level ... I would love to vote for Itachi but given the fact that he has a bloodline limit .... I nominate Minato Namikaze ... so far nobody was able to touch Tobi in hand-to-hand combat but Minato took him down and like a minute plus whenever he is cornered or caught like Naruto was many times he can teleport himself out the oponents grasp - nobody has shown that ability sofar
Kakashi fighting style...
Stylish and Deadly
Itachi is definitely the best all-around fighter, with Sasuke.
They can do so many things that they always have a card in their hands...
If I only got one to choose from the two, I'd choose Sasuke...
Simply because we saw more battle from him and that the many ways he use Chidori by itself is incredible.
PS: Still, the fights I enjoy the most are probably Shikamaru's, but he's not the best fighter, so...
I nominate Minato, allways surprising his enemies with fast smart actions thanks to his spacetime jutsus.
Kimimaro. His whole body is a weapon, he's pretty much unstopable and at the same time he's not lacking elegance like most of the other dude's from the tank department.
Uchiha Itachi. I enjoyed his fighting style the most, because of his incredible pace. The combination of movement, seal and jutsu execution speed is amazing. You have to be insane if even the Sharingan can't follow you.
I would go with Muu's and Oonoki's long-range nin-jutsu fighting style in combination with stealth and flying. Impressively powerful dust-release techniques that cause enormous destruction.
Though Gai/Lee's fighting style aside, I'd put Kakashi above Itachi's because Kakashi showed more tactics and deviousness in his fights. He was able to outsmart his enemies and catch them off guard, and he showed more variety.
Of course, Itachi didn't like fighting and used genjutsu. Plus, he was too good to really be given a challenge in the fights we've seen so far.
I don't wanna go on a long debate.... maybe his chakra control is good...but if Itachi's 2.5 stamina stat means he has less chakra than Kakashi.... i hardly believe the rediculous difference only comes from not being an Uchiha ..... if i recall correctly... Kakashi used two kamui against Nagato and was out for good after and he had not used many techniques prior to it.... While Itachi used quite a lot of MS techniques and had yet to be fully drained out on top of having his sickness kicking in constantly...
Sole reason as to why i mentionned this is because given the Genjutsu expertise Itachi has.... it's no surprise to think that his chakra control is likely the best there is out there.... while Kakashi doesnt use genjutsu and clearly has stamina problem.... while Itachi never seemed to ever show stamina issues and concern
Kakashi is scared of having issues when he uses 1 bunshin.... Itachi has his Crow bunshin as his main ninjutsu usage.....
Either way i get you... but i still think that despite Kakashi being very well rounded and 2nd to Itachi .... Itachi is still imo ahead of him in that department as well,
And while i agree that Kakashi has shown more tactics so far... Itachi hasnt fought seriously until he fought Edo Nagato.... and this wasnt really a fight.....
Itachi clearly is a tactician... he wasnt Anbu captain for a reason .... i'd say let's wait for Itachi vs Kabuto as this will be the very first fight he will take on alone and seriously.
