Kabuto and Orochimaru don't need their lower body, their only vital organ is their stomach... as long as their stomach is intact they can barf out a new body whenever they want.
^Was gonna bring that up but had to work another 12 hour shift. There isn't a flesh wound that can kill Oro or Kabuto. Or atleast, I'm assuming Kabuto's body regenerates at a superior rate to Orochimaru's, considering he added Karin's regenerative abilities to his own.
Yeah. Minato's weakness are ninja that can't be stopped by a kunai or a Rasengan. This means:
Suigetsu (and I love it)
...are all capable of defeating him. That's not to say that they would win, but they all have ways to survive a blitz from Minato. And all it takes is surviving one Hiraishin before any of the listed ninja automatically know how it works. From that point they think up a strategy and things get ugly.
Suigestsu was able to withstand a 8-tailed Bijuu Cannon, so rasengan would not even scratch Kabuto.
Nope, he didn't withstand the attack. He survived through it, but that was a KO.
But I don't think the rasengan would hurt Kabuto either, not especially since Kabuto already experienced it once. With Orochimaru's chakra, he should heal even faster and better if he does get hit in his normal mode.
You forgot Naruto, ninjabot. S'far as we know, there's nothing that can get past Naruto's cloak, and he's pretty fast as well. If he combines Sage Mode and Kyuubi Mode, he'll be a version of Sharingan with super strength, speed, and longer reach and more versatility.
Let's add the 3'th Raikage, Kimimaro, Gaara, Hashirama, Gaara's father and probable more lol.
Yeah that is true but i was thinking about the water mode and if they could pull themselfs togeder again if they where missing part of there mass.
It's not about how powerful the rasengan is, or how someone can tank that jutsu, it's how minato will going to execute his technique together with his startegy. That's make minato as a godlike shinobi. And again, all of you are keep insisting that minato has just a rasengan to deal with his useless enemies. Sigh.
Same Uchiha's feathers? huh? This is nothing to do with Uchiha, being Itachi fan, or hating Minato. I don't hate Minato at all. Just because I'm not biased and can actually recognize the reality doesn't make me biased at all, otherwise I'd be saying Itachi beats Pain or Jiraiya beats Sasuke, if I was biased towards characters I liked and against characters I hated.
It doesn't matter how Minato will execute his technique if his enemy can tank the jutsu or have a shield that rasengan can't penetrate. especially when it's against one of the smartest shinobi in the series who is also very capable of executing his technique together with his strategy. Itachi was able to figure out the weakness to Chibaku Tensei pretty quickly, and he was able to deduce what Kabuto would do. Itachi has shown intelligence on par with Minato, if not higher.
Because that's all he's shown: a rasengan. Against shinobi like Ino or Kiba, rasengan and probably Hiraishin would be enough, but Itachi is on a different level.
Rasengan isn't enough for Naruto, Sasuke, Itachi, or Madara. Hiraishin isn't enough for Naruto and most likely not enough for Itachi either, though Sasuke might have trouble with it.
I don't hate Minato or love the Uchiha but the facts are facts and Minato does not have what i takes to take them down.
Now considering i also see you agreeing with other Minato fans that have the same oppinions as you this is really ridiculous...
Why people that thinks that Minato could win of everybody have the habit of saiyng that we are another character fanboy.
My favorite character is Hiruzen Sarutobi and Hatake Kakashi, the former is far more hyped than Minato, I have databook to back him up and several statments. But I don't use this to say that he could beat the likes of Hashirama or Itachi.
I really dispise Sasuke, but I know he can beat Hiruzen and several others character I like.
As a neutral here, I am just predicting these fights by actual skills, not using "Maybe If".
Arguments like Minato is GodLike, Minato is unbeatable because of this and that, is not acceptable by neutrals without proof.
I agree with Ninja Star^. I love Minato and think the world of him, but he has not shown/demonstrated any other offensive jutsus(can't even kill Sugetsu ). Don't get me wrong, speed is a great feat in Naruto world, but intelligence,resilience, genjutsu, and large ninjutsu win most if not every battle that has been SHOWN IN THE MANGA. Speaking of things that have been shown in the manga, we don't even know Minato's nature affinity yet if that will even be revealed (probably not). Minato has not even been shown to kill any S-rank ninja's in the show. Not to go off on a tangent, but Hiruzen Sarutobi was said to be the strongest kage in leaf history(In his prime which we have not seen), so strong to where killing Oro was just a decision based on morality alone. But we can only jump to assumptions when comparing him to the 1st hokage. I suggest less assumptions and more facts when talking about Minato's abilities in battle. Therefore Minato can not beat anybody who the others have listed above.
We haven't seen anything from minato's caliber and yet he was no match at all? You haven't seen any technique/s on minato so he has just a rasengan and his hiraishin, so he's no match to (insert your useless character). Is this the basic sense of this thread? Minato has just his rasengan and his hiraishin. No assumption is allowed.
You're making more assumptions without basis. At least ours has basis to it.
Don't blame us, blame Kishi. He had opportunity to show what Minato had against Tobi and Raikage but didn't deliver. Wouldn't be hard to assume rasengan and Hiraishin are all he has.
It's not what Minato didn't show us that makes us think Minato would lose, but what the enemies have shown us. Itachi has shown extremely high caliber genjutsu that no one was able to break out of so far, save for Sasuke and Bee. Gaara's advantage would be Minato's undoing, especially if there are no trees for Minato to gain altitude. Gaara's defense can withstand Minato's attacks. Orochimaru post-body transfer is almost indestructible, not even Kyuubi Naruto could kill him. Pre-body transfer, I think Minato would win. Same with Kabuto, Minato has nothing to take him out. Probably won't. For Sasuke, see Itachi. Not only that, but Sharingan helps him keep up with Minato, and he ahs more chakra and better mastery over Amaterasu than Itachi, to boot.
So far, Minato is more useless than any of them. So are the arguments that say he can win, in most cases. Nice try bashing those characters, but Minato looks worse since all he has are three or four jutsu, and he was unable to prevent or kill Tobi.
