    I'm reserving this battle of my two favorite Akatsuki members for when Kakuzu shows his skills... if no one minds.

    If you want to discuss with limited info, go right ahead. :amuse

    The poll will be re-opened when Kakuzu has his first major fight.

    Depends pretty much if Kakuzu has a skin of steel, since he doesn't look all that fast to me.

    Ok, I won't vote.

    With the limited information we have on Kakuzu, I'll say that Sasori would win.

    So many puppets as well as poison.

    Pre-mature thread xD

    For now, Kakuzu has shown nothing that would indicate that he was immune to poison.

    Added to the fact that he appears to be taijutsu based, or at least physical contact, there will be a greater chance that he will get scratched, if he is in the fray.

    I wonder how many people voted? I almost want to vote, just to see if anyone voted. I assume everyone did that.

    Anyway, so far, Sasori would kill him. On scratch is all it takes.

    That said, Kakuzu seems pretty fast, how fast? Can't say for sure, but fast enough to catch Asuma with a kick out of nowhere.

    He could smash Hiruko with ease, but when the Kazekage comes out, it'll probably go South for Kakuzu.

    For now, I'd say Sasori. Like the original poster said, we don't have a lot of information about Kakuzu.

    No, i think he would be able to break Hiruko for certain.

    Whether he survives after that, or in fact even before that, is another question.

    kakuzu takes this one...his strength would demolish ALL of sasori's puppets even the 3rd kazekage...sasori's only advantage would be his red secret technique: performance of a hundred puppets.

    well from what we have seen kakuzu is faster than sasori so if he could dodge the poisoned blades and such he'd be a winner in this fight.

    What have we seen that shows he is faster than Sasori?

    Regardless, he will fall into traps.

    And added with his size, he might find it hard not to get scratched.

    I wonder if Kakuzu can use his super-strength from mid-range by launching his fists like that...it looked like he was about break the necks of Izumo/Kotetsu just by gripping them from range.

    That could be a possibility.

    Also, are those hands even organic :huh?

    They seems very puppet-like to me, so it could be questioned whether poison can affect Kakuzu at all.

    Owell, this is why i didn't want to participate in this thread yet, because there is too much speculation xD

    Well, given that Kakuzu can make his body solid like that, I'd say his chances of winning just increased dramatically. It's obvious that normal projectiles aren't going to break through that - a sword bounced off it like it was nothing, as did Chouji's massive spiky jutsu.

    The only thing Sasori has shown that might power through it is Satetsu... but that's very much a "maybe".

    Kakuzu hasn't shown anything too troublesome for Sasori yet either, though, so I'm reserving judgment for a few more weeks.

    I'm going to say Kakuzu on case of bad match up. If Kakuzu's steel skin works like he says it does then Sasori is next to useless against Kakuzu.

    IMO it would take a while for Kakuzu to beable to do any damage to Sasori himself, so if Sasori could outlast the steel skin(exhaust Kakuzu's chakra) then he could win.

    I can't see how he will be afected by Satetsu and poison. Iron=Iron and he can't be scratched. :amazed

    Kakuzu wins.

    well, if kakuzu's steel skin is immune to poison, then kakuzu wins EASY. But if its not, he'll get past hiruko, but will fall to the 3rd kazekage, or kakuzu takes that puppet down with him

    It depends if he's immune to the posion or not, I think he is as he can turn his skin to steel.

    I say Kakuzu wins.
