Maybe its off-topic but I disagree my friend.Kabuto has such garbage showings in part 1 it's hard to argue he does anything to anyone of note. I made a post a while back detailing how despite his hype of being on part 1 Kakashi's level, Kakashi would just absolutely dumpster him if you went to actually comparing feats.
Kishi did an extremely poor job of matching Kabuto's showings to his hype.
That was something she developed in response to the death of Dan and Nawaki, but during her battle in the sannin deadlock she got past it to save Naruto's life, after that she was able to operate Lee and fight without going ever again into PTSD-mode, so if Kabuto decides to use again this tactic he'll only damage his own body without gaining the expected resultJust one, he takes advantage of her fear of blood, he is Intel specialist after all.
First of all. Kabuto outsmart Kakashi on-page and schooled him easily.
When Kakashi was afraid of facing a Sannin. Kabuto was so eager to try his shot against a Sannin.
-Are you referring to when Kabuto ran away at the hospital after Kakashi showed superior physical ability by stopping his attack on Sasuke?
Kakashi went up against a Sannin killer without hesitations so what does that say? He lasted longer than Orochimaru did vs Itachi.
His pupil ?Kakashi went up against a Sannin killer without hesitations so what does that say?
Sick Orochimaru w/o ninjutsu and legs in a mouth as a sitting duck?He lasted longer than Orochimaru did vs Itachi.
1. Superior physical ability? Kabuto got away, Kakashi couldn't even chase him lol.
2. Actually, he flinched and called himself a fool immediately after charging Raikiri at a Sannin. Also, it took a Totsuka Sword to finish Oro off, Kakashi got negged by killer intent and Tsukuyomi alone, and Itachi didn't even want to kill Kakashi at all. FKS Kakashi is the one that faced a Sannin killer, and that's the guy that made even Pain wary of him and his potential.
No need to downplay Kabuto and Oro, m8. Kakash
1- I am referring to him stopping Kabuto's puppet from decapitating Sasuke at point blank while at a distance disadvantage
Since when does desperately escaping
by jumping from a window imply superior physical ability? Did running away from Kakashi again at the stadium imply superior physical ability?
2- He said "Kakashi was afraid of facing a Sannin. Kabuto was so eager to try his shot against a Sannin." as if it means anything about Kabuto's power but it doesn't. Kakashi thought Orochimaru was too much for him but still didn't back down vs Itachi who rekked Oro previously
Thinking you can go up against someone and actually being able to, are two different things. Both Kabuto and Kakashi were wrong about their assessments. Arguing that their mindset "I can go/I can't go up against someone" determines their power level is illogical unless the feats are there.
His pupil ?
Sick Orochimaru w/o ninjutsu and legs in a mouth as a sitting duck?
Or An Oro that tries to test Itachi's eyes?
SAme Kakashi lasted less than Orochimaru against %30 Fake Itachi when he had 3 Jonin Level Supp.
Nice try dude.
Kabuto's puppet =/ Kabuto himself.
Desperate? Kabuto's literally the one laughing and smiling, Kakashi is the one that's tense and sulky about Kabuto lol.
Odd way to phrase the fact Kabuto managed to give Kakashi the slip, in spite of Kakashi's considerable speed and tracking skills
Kakashi had no idea Itachi defeated Orochimaru lol.
This is true.
Yeah, Kabuto's puppet probably has better feats
considering Kabuto couldn't stop kid Naruto from landing rasengan on him
while Kakashi casually manhandled Sasuke and Naruto's attacks
Not sure how escaping from Kakashi
and literally stating during their second encounter that he didn't want to fight him due to the sharingan is supposed to be impressive
Kabutois not too far from Kakashi's general tier
but not because of his combat abilities but his sneakiness and medical jutsu brilliance
however Kakashi is a horrible matchup for him due to Sharingan as Kabuto stated
It's irrelevant whether he knew or not, it just shows that their own assessment of their own power vs someone else is arbitrary and can be erroneous and that's why I called out his example.
