It applies to Sasuke to most definetely.
They have a fated meeting. 9tails was already given to Naruto.
The Sharingan abilities have been somewhat prepared for Sasuke.
It applied to Uchiha straight away with the eye story too.

With Hinata, he thought Pein had killed her or she was near death, hence there was no going back to the original state. With Haku, I am unsure why seeing his face quelled his rage, but I believe his appearance and their conversation in the forest played some role in this regard. Of course it's hypothetical of me. I hope this was a satisfactory explanation for my side of the argument. I can't do better than this, I'm afraid.
this is Part 1, you have the two clans, known for their talent and their Doujutsu:
Uchihas had the better ninjutsu and genjutsu, while Hyuuga clearly had the best taijutsu.
Now take the Sharingan, strip it of Izanagi, Izanami, Bijuu control, EMS and all the things introduced in part 2, and you have an eye with great foresight, capacity of see the current of chakra, capacity to copy common jutsus and capacity of visual genjutsu varying in power.
Take the Byakugan, it sees way better than the Sharingan, its eyesight and reading of chakra flow can easily help a Hyuuga almost at the same level of an Uchiha in predicting movements, it can see at almost 360° for a long distance, and I'm pretty sure allows the Hyuuga to see through genjutsus easily, since they can see perfectly chakra pathways and chakra currents, and would thus recognize what is false and what is real, adding to the thing their incredible chakra control.
You have Guy A with Sharingan and Guy B with Byakugan, both have similar abilities, strenght and intelligence.
Guy B would likely beat Guy A because:
-Guy A knows he can't go in taijutsu, because otherwise he would be dead
-Guy A genjutsu is most likely useless
-Guy A ninjutsu its his only weapon, but at the time Ninjutsu spammage heavily drained the user, and Hyuugas had Kaiten ( when he wouldn't simply dodge ), a defence even better than Gaara's sand, since it repels the attacks it receives.
Itachi was an anomaly, in both sheer talent and Mangekyo, her mother herself says to Sasuke that he shouldn't try to surpass his brother, because he was not normal
As for your example, taijutsu wouldn't be out of the question, since only a few Hyuuga's can inject chakra. And since genjutsu manipulate the brain, it's just as possible that what they see is exactly what the user wants them to see. I mean, after all, even the Sharingan doesn't guarantee the ability to see through a genjutsu. As mentioned with taijutsu, only a tiny few Hyuuga would be capable of employing Kaiten, which was why Neji was considered a genius for learning it. And even if they could use it, it cost quite a bit of chakra to use, so they would be in a similar position. Also, you forgot weaponry, which most of the Uchiha we've seen seem to use pretty well.
Also Juuken can be done by every Hyuuga, you are confusing it with the ability to close Tenketsus, which is pretty rare.
Juuken works by immitting the Hyuuga's chakra into the enemy system, destroying it from the inside. Tenketsu opening/closing allows the Hyuuga to reduce of completely halt the flow of chakra by closing the chakra's pathways.
As for Genjutsu, for it to work the Uchiha would need to know how the Byakugan works to effectively fool it, and considering the Byakugan's insight is superior, as well as being able to see at 360°, I find pretty difficult for it to work, considering also that they can alter their own chakra pretty easily, thanks to their style of fighting.
Kaiten was never said to consume a fair bit of chakra ( Neji employed it just to stop some shurikens ), and its teached for all the main branch of Hyuugas, meaning at least half the clan, when properly matured, should be able to use it.
Even without that, their hands are covered with chakra, meaning they can either deflect it or block it entirely.
Or just employ Vacuum Palm
It was said to release a large amount of chakra in order to make use of. That would imply that the number of times it can be used is limited. And it was said to be passed down to the heirs of the clan. I wouldn't underestimate their weaponry abilities, given how both Itachi and Sasuke displayed different tricks beyond just straight throwing. Even if they get deflected, it would still benefit the Uchiha more costwise.
Naruto, without enhancing abilities nor superior speed, could still keep up with Sasuke, both on the roof of the hospital and at the beginning of the VOTE fight.Quote:
Sure he was hit a bit, but wasn't helpless despite the obvious difference in speed.
Considering also Juuken can deal damage even without completely hitting the opponent ( all it takes is a little touch ) I don't doubt a Hyuuga would best an Uchiha
Sight is influenced by the brain, you can't tell a person what to see if you don't know how he see things.Quote:
I can concede paralyzing genjutsus would be a different story.
Keep in mind though that Hyuuga have incredible chakra control
Gotta find an official translation, I remember it was the main branch, not the main house.Quote:
As for Kaiten's chakra consumption, I remember Hiashi doing a giant Kaiten without even breaking a sweat, and if Kaiten consumed a lot of chakra I wouldn't see Neji using it for stopping shurikens, a feat he could've done calmly in 183048 other ways
On weaponry, Itachi and Sasuke are anomalies, they are gifted even for Uchihas, so imo is pretty unfair to use them as examples, expecially since the Hyuugas didn't receive even a tenth of the Uchihas development.
The best I can concede is the C rank jutsu Sasuke used to bind Orochimaru in the forest, but Hyuugas can expel chakra from their bodies, so it would be kinda useless imo
Anomalies? Madara and Obito have also shown skills at using weaponry. Seems more like their standard then an anomaly. What about the shadow shuriken, the tricks used against Deidara, or the whole display during the brother's fight? Not all hyuuga's are capable of that. Neji had to master the Gentle Fist style in order to be capable of that.
He knew Kyuubi was inside him, or at least he was in some way associated with the Kyuubi. Naruto has said he knew about the other chakra but couldn't tell what it was from, or something. Either way, Naruto was in control, or in control enough to stop when he had to.
there was no clear winner.
After that is the clash between Chidori and Rasengan, meaning Naruto and Sasuke were equals.
And Naruto didn't have the same speed of Sasuke, nor he had 2 tomoe's precog. He kept up, at the best of his abilities
Byakugan sees way better than the Sharingan, its the only thing it hasQuote:
When Neji was tired after 2 Kaitens?Quote:
Against both Naruto and Kidomaru he uses Kaiten effortlessy. He was tired/damage because he got hit by Naruto's Kyuubi chakra
Not really disproving my point, since Madara is the strongest Uchiha to date and Obito was his apprentice, even though Obito didn't show mastery of weapons, he only used a giant shuriken, what Mizuki did in chap 1Quote:
As for the Kage Shuriken or everything else, I don't buy them being able to fool a Byakugan, and even if they did, it isn't that difficult to knock out or dodge, like Zabuza and Itachi showed.
The latter was hit both for his bad reflexes and because Sasuke wired the giant Shuriken
