After seeing madara and what he is capable of with the EMS I just cant help but wonder how hashirama won that fight. Do you think kishi will ever show that battle so we can see how badass hashirama was?
I think with the rinnegan, madara wouldn't
have lost to harishama. I feel like he could have
won. I also feel like Madara wasn't holding
back when he fought harishama because he used the
nine-tails. If madara was stronger than harishama,
theres no need for the nine-tails. I think madara
knew he would lose so required the nine-tails to
help him defeat harishama. However harishama was
able to defeat madara even with the nine-tails.
Right before madara was going to die, he somehow
gained harishama power and lived.
the fact that harishama was able to defeat madara
with the nine-tails, harishama should be a VERY
powerful ninja. In fact, madara himself said
harishama is one of the strongest ninja of his
time and his greatest rival. When orichamaru
summoned 1st hokage i think it was a glimpse of
his powers, so we haven't fully seen him in
I think harishama was able to defeat madara
because he has physical energy and strong life
force of younger son. Whereas madara has inherited
spirtual energy and powerful chakra.
My theory is that since harishama was able to
use wood element, it was his ultimate DEFENSE and
made him almost imprevious to damage when he can
grow trees and wood from his body. Also made it
difficult to injure him physically when he can
harden his body with his wood element jutsus and
use clones. Madara although he had his EMS
wasn't able to overcome that.
Also i think there is more to harishama because
he had knowledge of forbidden jutsus, which was
written in scrolls. He could have used them to
defeat madara. Since harishama and madara were
the strongest ninja of their time, there battle
should have been intense, such that we
haven't seen a REAL battle yet
the 1st had his wife with him at the battle. and
the 1st didnt know how to do the rasengun the 4th
invented it. madara wasnt serious he was aiming
for the future. but had to make it look series.
but the wood element is pretty powerful. he could
create forest and use the forest to destroy stuff.
he was also using alot of swords and scrolls. but
other than that we have no idea.
have to also realize that madara wasnt as powerful
as he is in edo. he didnt have the rinngun. and
kabuto gave him extra power. so its safe to say he
was around sasukes strength but a little better.
