    Suigetsu said that the only one that could stop Juugo without getting hurt was Kimmimaro, and I asume that Team Hebi is S-Class like Akatsuki. Wouldn't that mean that Kimmimaro was S-Class to? If so he should've been able to pwn both Gaara and Lee within secons during the "Rescue Sasuke" arc? Was it because Kimmimaros's desise or didn't Kishi think this through? (Altough it could be me that is stupid and dont get it :sweatdrop)

    Oh, and how did Suigetsu know that Kakuzu was a bounty hunter and a member of Akatsuki?

    Kimimaro could have killed off Lee and Gaara. Gaara said so himself right after Kimimaro pass away.

    I dunno about Suigetsu though... hes got skills.

    Kimmimaro was sick, and Gaara is a not your average Shinobi. Also, I'm pretty sure Oro and his minions, incuding Suigetsu, have plenty of info on Akatsuki.

    I always thought Kimmimaro was leagues stronger when he was healthy. Then again, Sasuke stopped him without even looking at him, so he could have had some mental way to calm Juugo down as well.

    We have no idea how awesome Kimimaro was in his prime.

    Remember, everything we saw him doing, he was doing while he should have been lying on his death bed on life support.

    Thanks, makes more sense now :D

    Well Orochimaru was an S-Class ninja and Sasuke killed him, and he knows that Itachi is stronger than Orochimaru. So why would he bring people weaker than Akatsuki if wanted to defeat them? He picked Karin, Suigetsu and Juugo because they were strong, he wouldn't bring them if they wasn't

    Didn't they mention that they came to orochimaru out of free will? Ok I dont know about Suigetsu and Karin, but I know that Juugo came because he wanted a cure. Maybe orochimaru manipulated Karin and Suigetsu like with Kimmimaro? And he probably trained them to use them as tools later.

    Well , it's an assumption , until we have seen them in battle we can't gauge their skills , and both Lee and Gaara said that Kimmi was a strong opponent , it was only because of his lung disease that he died

    Kimimaro's particular abilities made him invulnerable to nearly all physical damage. I doubt even Orochimaru could harm him even though he's technically stronger. It could be the same case with Juugo, and that may be why he was paired up with him.

    I don't doubt that Kimimaro was incredibly strong -especially when he's healthy- but I think his bloodline's ability played a big role in restraining Juugo.

    I agree with Sho. Kimimaro with his bone-morphing abilities was the best pair for Juugo, who seems to have also some sort of morphing his body like steel, really resembles in that Kimi.

    About Suigetsu knowing Kakuzu I dunno, but from some source he must knew...

    Even falling to the hands of illness, none of Gaara nor Lee's attacks put a dent in him.

    Kimimaro was sick and he underestimated Gaara a bit.

    Suigetsu might know about Kakuzu because Sasuke probably asked Orochimaru about Akatsuki before then told Team Hebi about them.

    Hebi knows what Akatsuki is up to because Oro already had information on most of their activities.

    Kimimaro most likely would have been S-class if he had his health. Gaara was pulling out massive jutsu and Kimi just plowed through all of them and nearly got the win. A healthy Kimimaro is nothing to fuck with.
