Re: Reverse situation...
So to sum up: speed > power/experience/tactic because who gives a flying fuck about logic? Oh wait, there is logic to your madness, all you have to do is misconstrue the living shit out of all the panels and twist and bend facts to make it work with your argument. Spot on rationality KYF.
Why is it so hard to admit faults in your favorite character? One of my favorite characters is Batman. For all the martial arts, cunning, intelligence, and gadgets he may have, I know that he may loose on occasion to mega powerhouses like Bane on occasions and other super intelligent villains like Lex. He has his strengths and weaknesses and I'm fine with that.
You can't seem to give in to the idea that Minato can realistically lose to Hashirama given proven chapter panels where its stated that Hashirama can fight for hours on end spamming jutsu. Minato was barely better than Obito during the Kyuubi attack on Konoha and only managed to seal the Kyuub. Hashirama went bijuu hunting like a baws rolfstomping each of them to be handed out to the other villages like party favors.
Yeah, I can totally see how Minato > Hashirama.
