The other option would be that Sand is simply a variation of Earth Jutsu and not a special KKG which would debunk yet another long held KY belief.
So take you pick: Bijuu power plot hole device, or KY theory squasher. Pretty damn lulzy either way.
EDIT: I also find it hilarious that it takes 4 kages to perform that 4 Red Suns Barrier move, yet Obito alone can make an even more powerful 6 Red suns barrier move like it's nothing.
Ridiculous power inflation is ridiculous.
SHukaku and the other Bijuu were originally part of the Juubi and thus it's powers were as well, therefore it makes perfect sense that Juubito could use any of the bijuu's abilities like sand abilities, coral abilities, lava abilities, slug acid abilities, Kyuubi regeneration abilities, ect... because they are all his now as the Juubi/all the bijuu JINK, but with only small amounts of hachibi and little more, but small amount of kyuubi power...
