Re: Debate: Speed Vs Power/Strength...
Harashima has the largest charka level of any living ninja right now (excluding ten tails).
The idea he could increase his speed with that seemingly endless supply of chakra isn't a stretch but can actually be EXPECTED.
Look at Gai or Lee when they open the first few gates and get access to more chakra, or Naruto when he unlocks the Kyuubi's chakra for use. They all get a tremendous boost in Speed and Strength.
The First Hokage surpasses all of them in that regard. No one in their right mind can possibly think Minato could beat the first with a couple of kunais.
Not to mention Hashirama is a god damn tank on both the offensive end and defensive end. Minato wouldn't stand a chance.
