    Is Kakouzu a speed freak or not. Based on movements from 324 and 325, he seems pretty fast(he didnt hit Shikimaru because of plot). If he had hit Shikimaru they would have been picking up piceses all over the place.

    In 325 he uses the usual body-flicker tech, but he is a pretty big guy and he would have difficults to use it. Im am for and against so that why im making a pole about it. Who think that Kakouzu will be a speedie power punchin freak :nuts

    The guy will probobly be ridiculously fast. Since he is fast and strong, Asuma's team will have a very hard time.

    Kakuzu suffers from Tsunade syndrome.

    That is.. he's got super strength, so like Tsunade and now Sakura and him also, he will NEVER hit ANYONE unless its a bunshin, a kawarimi, an unnamed nobody ninja/minion like the sand nins in the invasion of Konoha or unless he's got his strengt decreased beforehand.

    So.. i dont think he's super fast. He's probably very fast, like all advanced shinobi are.. but not to the level of speed freaks like Lee or Gai.

    I just hope one Akatsuki members manages to kill a Konoha ninja. That's all I'm asking for.

    May it be Kakuzu, the big strong dude. He does seem pretty fast, so hopefully he'll bust someone's head open, before succumbing to PIS.

    He seems pretty slow because of plot. That means he seems pretty slow.

    If he's a gate user, like I think, then he's probably fast as hell. See my thread in the theories forum.

    Do Izumo and Kotetsu count as unnamed nobody ninja/minions? Because there's a pretty decent chance that Kakuzu will clobber one or both of them.

    Kakuzu is clearly not slow. He is probably as fast as Zabuza or Kisame, who are also strong or super-strong guys who are not speed freaks but can keep up with Kakashi and Gai.

    I think he is pretty fast. He caught up to Skikamaru after the first punch and was about to pound him again if Asuma hadn't arrived.

    Well, he's faster than Hidan (has a faster attack speed anyway), who was roughly equal to Asuma.

    So that puts him at least up there with the likes of Kakashi, Kisame and (base) Gai... those guys can't be that much faster than Asuma themselves. I don't think he'll be a speed-freak, but he'll be fast enough to take on most other high-level characters in the series. :)

    He's fast because he's Akatsuki. Everyone in Akatsuki has to have above average speed.

    My feeling is that he's got Tsunade-level strength + above average speed + invulerable skin armor. Just a hunch.

    Nice to have people agreing with you :D And yea he wont be as fast as gate-Gai or gates-Lee, but imo he will be fast. That will be the first shook(:S spelling) when the first shinobi fights him. They will go "OMG hes this big and fast, ill better watch out" :p

    Eh, I don't think he's a speed demon, he's probably fast but not extremely so.

    Well of course he is fast in the general level, but yes I could see him being from the slower end of Akatsuki.

    Could be, seemed fast in the chapters; I suppose so. Big guys can be fast too, though. Remember, not all physical laws are obeyed in terms of Ninjutsu, etc.

    Generally we visualise the strong guys as very slow and cumbersome. So I like the idea that he's very fast.

    Well, we know he isnt the slowest attacker in Akatsuki. And seeing from the last fight Hidan wasn't all that slow as he claimed, unless its be cause it was mid range with the scythe

    Since Hidan was saying he had the slowest attack speed, Kakuzu will mostly likely be fast. The way Akastuki is paired up, it seems that each of the members are making up for the other's weaknesses. If Hidan has a speed problem, then Kakuzu is probably gonna run like a lightning bolt.

    He seems slow, but I think he's most dangerous than Hidan.

    I get the impression that he will be the ultimate speedy taijutsu user.

    Something I have been wondering about though.... Where is everyone getting the impression that Kakuzu transforms himself. I must have missed this somewhere and I can't find a thread about it.

    He should be fast since he's an Akatsuki.
    but the fact is that the lazy Shikamaru was able to dodge his punches. Even with the element of surprise.

    I think he's slow like and old woman with arthritis :(
