[QUOTE=kael03;2137988] Lol, you and common sense... That will be the day..
Your drawing the conclusion that regeneration without the use of hand signs is not AUTOMATIC because hashirama can be killed by a Kunai is so completely flawed it is ridiculous...
How does that cme off as valid much less sound reasoning?
All your doing is trying to alter the meaning of "regeneration without the use of hand signs" as something other then what it could ONLY be, AUTOMATIC regeneration.
And the FACT that Obito, who has a hashirama clone body was able to AUTOMATICALLY heal his arm wounds shown here: But I guess you ignored that, right...
Proof that Hashirama dropped to one knee from exhaustion? If you look at hashirama's eyes, it looks like he is very emotional after having to actually KILL his friend meaning he did not drop form exhaustion Because he clearly had enough power to control the buddha to bring the Kyuubi back to Konoha which was far away so he was definitely not out of chakra.
So your premise does not fit what the manga shows.
LMAO, Madara was just hyping hashirama while Kabuto contradicted himself saying hashirama>Madara despite the FACT Kabuto admitted he did not know what madara is actually capable of in his prime... And that is you best evidence... contradicting HYPE Vs Minato and his clone's FEAT of brushing off the attack of the shinobi that owned tobirama so easily, was confirmed stronger then hashirama too... All while busy focusing on his new jutsu too lol.
But that means nothing for some reason..
Aside from Obito currently. Minato wouldn't be able to do shit to him, even with all of his speed. You have to understand, Tobirama, the guy that Minato took FTG from, was Hashirama's brother. You don't think he would've figured out counters to S/T techs?
1). AGAIN, MINATO EASILY BRUSHED OFF THE ATTACK OF V1 JUUBITO WHO IS CONFIRMED STRONGER THEN HASHIRAM AND OWNED TOBIRAMA IN AN INSTANT EASILY. ALL WHILE BUSY FOCUSING ON HIS NEW JUTSU, SHOWN HERE:
(Minato and his clones hands are up with the hand sign for "focus" beucase they are busy preparing to use the new jutsu and yet still tracked, the brushed off V1 Juubito speed spin kick)
2). Ninjutsu will not work on Juubito thus hashirama is boned and his SM jutsu can be sealed with prea paths power, but Physical attacks work on Juubito. ANd since minato's attacks are so fast that Obito cannot even REACT and Juubito cannot grow a head back or regenerate organs. Minato could actually land a Killing blow.
How can you guys not understand how effective super raw speed so fast the enemy cannot touch you or react to defend against your attacks...
Once Minato tags you, you are done... that much is common knowledge...
3). Minato's Hirashin>>Tobirama's. You really think that hashirama can counter Hirashin of 3 different levels just because his brother could use a much less effective version of mInato's level 1?
Where is the logic in that statement?
Speed is the most effective ability when it comes to striking/taijutsu/ninjutsu, not power/strength. Thus why Minato is top tier and needs to be holding back with sympathy and guilt along with a failed Kunai defense against the strongest shinobi since the rikudou sage himself just to touch him.
And yet you think hashirama will possibly counter Minato's time space jutsu and touch him while not being touched by Minato....
I mean come on, how can you underestimate Minato so much?
Remeber perfect cell Vs super trunks? Super trunks far surpassed cell in power and strength, However, he was way to slow to hit cell while being able to defend against cells attacks thus lost.
Simply because no matter how POWERFUL/STRONG you are. If you cannot CATCH your Enemy, all you power is no more effective then a squit gun if it cannot hit anything.
And if You cannot possibly TRACK/REACT to your enemies attacks, then how can you possibly stop him from owning you at will...
