    If you notice carefully, you see a blade or sword on the frog. So Frogs can use swords while snake can't. I vote for the frogs as being superior, so Naruto + Sasuke (ignore naruto + sasuke comment:D)

    Yes, but snakes have fangs and scales, where frogs have soft, slimy skin and no teeth.

    Actually, going by the janken version, like Deepthought said, it goes Snake > Frog > Slug > Snake. So yea, Manda > Gamabunta.

    Snake would win against the frog if you follow the system that has been set up. They are not superior to snakes.

    This philosophy didn't help Gamabunta much against Manda.

    It was actually the slug user that beat the snake, so theory = proven.

    In the manga, Snakes > Frogs. Orochimaru had little kusunagi swords on those snake's mouth when battling Kyuubi 4-tail.

    You right, but still the sword suit the frogs better. A sword in the mouth it's dangerous, while the frogs carry the sword in their hands.

    They eat normal sized frogs. Not the 150 feet jacket wearing,katana weilding and cigarette smoking ones.

    Yeath, that's what I'm trying to say, frogs with swords > snake. Manda just got lucky and it's not like gamabunta was dieying.

    That prooves nothing i say that it depends on how the Summons are used althought the rankings say Snakes are stronger than Frogs

    We have seen multiple times Frogs beat the stuffing out of Snakes to be honest the only usefull snake so far has been Manda and he's a Diva

    But i must go for Frogs it appears that Frogs have a more diverse range of capabilities like Frog Jutsu aswell as the typical summoning


    And 1 last thing the Snake > Frog > Slug > Snake equation is from the Japanese folk tale that has inspired some of the characters and their powers but Kishi has not confirmed in the manga if he also sticks by the equation he may well have disregarded that

    Being as unbiased as possible, Snakes have shown far more use than Frogs in the show. The only useful frog summons we've seen are Gama himself, and that toad mouth Jiraiya summoned. Snakes can shield their user far better than Frogs. Does anyone honestly think Naruto or Jiraiya could have done what Sasuke just did with a frog? (blocking Deidara's bomb bird)? Also, the greatest of the snakes was shown to be too much for Gamabunta, who would be dead if it weren't for Tsunade and Katsuya.

    Snakes are far more useful...in fact I'd say most summons we've seen are more useful than frogs. Like Kakashi's nin-dog, Enma, etc. Unless we can see more funky stuff like Jiraiya's toad mouth.

    Can anyone really disagree with that? If you do, please actually provide some evidence to the contrary, not just the same ol' frogs > snakes cuz da main character gots da frogz yo!

    Hm, I prefer the idea of snakes being better than frogs in the Narutoverse considering how flexiable the snake's form is, and that it doesn't need to have a knife to be considered a threat.

    You are completly biased the only times Snakes have actually shown any use in this manga was

    - Manda
    - The Snake that protected Sasuke from Deidara

    You want evidence that Frogs have shown more use in the manga okay

    - When the Sound and Sand attacked Konoha with the 3 headed snakes what did Jiraiya summon to defeat the attacking Snakes OH yes gigantic Toad warrriors

    - Gamabunta was essential in the defeat of a Powered up Jinchuuriki who had token the Buuji's form and personality

    -Also don't forget the 2 different Toads that transport Jiraiya around

    - And i nearly forgot the Toad that was a master at Kenjutsu and stopped Kisame in his tracks

    And on top of all that Frogs even have their own Toad Jutsu like the Toad mouth no other animal has shown this ability the ability that made Itachi use 1 of his greatest jutsu

    You ask can i really imagine a Toad being able to protect Jiraiya and Naruto from Deidara bombs the answer is yes of course

    You weren't paying attention i assume when a toad used his tongue to protect Naruto from the Desert funeral

    As for other summons Enma all he showed was he could do was transform into an imbreakable staff

    And kakashi's Nin dogs held down Zabuzza and Pakun can track people

    Face it so far the most valuble summoning shown to date has been the Toads

    Now i ask you to prove me wrong and give an argument better than Snakes > Toad because i'm a Sasutard

    That sword was the real Kusangi that belonged to Oro and Oro alone and those snakes he used were most probably Ninjutsu

    Nobody expected snakes > bombs... that was just awesome. Enma can make defensive prison and can be used on offense but he cant stop bombs. The only summon that can protect Sasuke from a bomb is a snake.

    Before 356 I would have wanted Enma... now I think snakes are better. Plus some snakes can fly and swim... I wonder if Sasuke can summon one of those. o.O

    Thanks from saving me the time. It's obvious that frogs have been to much greater effect throughout the manga. Anybody that has read the manga would know this and not actually demand "proof."
