    Kimimaro was a lot stronger than some people think, or maybe it's just me who underestimated the healthy Kimimaro. The first hint I noticed was Sakon's speech about Sasuke who apperantly didn't have nearly as much potential as Kimimaro. The second and more significant hint was told by Kidoumaru, his comparison revealed he wasn't as close to death since Kimimaro the day Neji sealed his fate with the final Jyuuken hit. Given this information I guess what happened most likely is the Sound 4 started an attack on Kimimaro to test his power and Kimimaro beat all of them nearly to death, probably interrupted by Kabuto or Orochimaru. Uchiha Sasuke couldn't control his cursed seal when the Sound 4 were playing with him, so Kimimaro probably didn't have an advanced cursed seal either yet he still have fought the Sound 4 and won or at least beat the shit out of Kidoumaru, a foe that even the genius Neji thought was impossible to defeat 1on1. The Sound 4 were afraid of Kimimaro, Tayuya was scared when she meet him again on her mission, yet they were not afraid of two enemy Konoha Jounin. I surmise as a healthy kid Kimimaro was at least kage level. In his last fight with Naruto, Lee, and Gaara he was with one foot in the grave yet still show insane skills.

    I didn't even watch the anime rescue saga, so sorry, it can't be filler.

    Um, yeah, he must have kicked ass back before he was coughing up blood...but I don't know about Kimm beating the shit out of ALL of the sound 4, that seems like a stretch, considering their cs2 and it being 4on1. 1on1 definiatly, tho.

    i will say that you are absolutely right. i will even add to it.

    he and his clan invaded the hidden mist....only he survived as a kid, against the hidden mist, a country.

    and he was still a kid, when he put down the sound 4.

    but i will also say that post cs2 sasuke would have owned kimmi-kun

    sharingan makes the unpredictable ability of kimmi-kun worthless.

    and he would have copied all his taijutsu.

    one of the only times you'll hear me praise sasuke-chan like this but you gotta give it to the kid.:)

    love the thread

    ^ I think Kimm would kick cs2 Sasuke's ass. Oro said that he will always long for Kimm, that he was the ideal host, even when he knew that Sasuke was coming. Even considering sharingan, Kimm is still probably stronger. And the bone thing is a bloodline limit, so it can't be copied. Just like how Sasuske was defeated by Haku (who is way below Kimm) b/c of the ice prison thing.

    Why is it a stretch for him to take out the other sound 4 alone? Kimimaro had the seal just like they did and oro wanted him more than he wanted sasuke.

    Frankly, I think it's kind of pointless talking about dead characters.

    Filler.
    Filler again.

    People seriously overestimate Kimimaro. He was able to beat a weakened Lee, and Gaara who simply lacked the ability to hurt him. That doesn't make him the strongest in the series.

    The condition kimimaro was in before the fight does lead you to believe he was very strong. He was next to dead and still wasn't defeated. Granted that he was still fighting against genin but he was in no condition to be up and walking around let alone fighting anyone and he still put on a show.

    There is a reason why he became Oro's intended vessel, and it's not because he can make a toothpick out of his bones.

    All you Kimimaro haters are full of shit. Read the first post before talking crap.That's canon, not filler.

    I still think Kimimaro > Sasuke in his prime, and probably Itachi as well. And there is SOME indication that Orochimaru felt the same way.
    Oro has this dream of learning and mastering all jutsu's, and sharingan speeds this up. But he still chose Kimimaro as his original desired vessel. It would make him indestructable in combat.

    At the time of Kimi's death Kabuto alone was equal to Kakashi, maybe even stronger than him, but at the same time Orochimaru seems to take Kimimaro as even better than Kabuto
    Kabuto seemed to see Kimimaro as his superior too (at least when he was healthy)
    ?Oh dont worry sir, there is nobody who can beat this guy (even if the guy is dying by illness)?
    And yeah, he only lost due to the handicap. He had the worst handicap in the whole series and he was still kickin asses. Imagining him healthy is just insane.

    He beat Naruto, Lee using a decent powerup, and a 2 year to be Kage Gaara, while being on his own deathbed. Nothing to scoff at.

    Orochimaru wanted Kimimaro's bloodline far prior to looking at Sasuke. It was only when his host became deathly ill that he had to look elsewhere. This means that his abilities where far superior to Sharingan. the things he did were pretty incredible, and he may not have even full accessed what he could possible do. (1 or 2 tome Sharingan)

    He may not have been on the level of Itachi/Orochimaru/Jiraiya. But he was very powerful, and probobly pretty close to them.

    Kimimaro didn’t exist in the manga, he was just a huge filer.
    And lee never got drunk.

    No problem. Just extent his lifespan 2 seconds more. Or take away his terminal illness and your genin kids are dead.
    Hmm..GTFO?

    Personally, I'd say Kimimaro could actually hold his own against an Akatsuki member. After all, his bones were hell-a strong. I mean, he must've been strong enough to take on Hidan. ^_^

    He would lose to Hidan in a millisecond. Everytime Kimi uses his ability, there's blood for Hidan to use. The ritual would be easy to pull off.

    the way i remember it (from the anime) is that kimm was the main attacker for Oro in his quest to defeat konoha. Though oro probably delt the final blow the kazekage, i have always held the impression that kimm did most of the damage, and held him there for oro to finish. kabuto even said that it would be easier to take on konoha if they had had kimm

    I think an important fact many people overlook is that Kimmimaro was SEVERELY handicapped when we saw him. Tayuya was surprised he was even able to move... and said he had "one foot in the grave" Kimmi was just moving his body through sheer will power. This is a handicap at the level of Jiraiya and Oro in the sannin battle, imagine a perfect healthy Kimmimaro, he would be considerably stronger than the one we have seen, I can't even begin to fathom how strong he would be.

    him takin on the sound 4 at once was indeed a filler but im 100% 1 on 1 he'd wreck all of them. And yea he's be very strong but we wouldn't know how strong he would get cause oro would take his body definately then oro would be invicinvible in battle nearly.

    He probably would have been Akatsuki material, especially after the time skip.

    Definitely gotta give Kimmi his due credit....

    I wonder what would be better though.....

    Oro in kimmi's body vs Itachi

    OR

    Oro in Sasuke's body vs Itachi?

    You make a good point there. if Kiminaro had no illness to begin with, he would have been pretty tough to deal with. Then you have Oro in the mix and he will be very powerful with that bloodline. I can't imagine Orominaro duking it out with Jiraiya, Tsunade, or anyone else for that matter. Healthy Kiminaro=heavy pwnage on enemies! :nuts

    I agree with the original post. Even with one foot in the grave, he still remained indestructable, and basically Gaara could do nothing to him except ultimately delay him. His bloodline limit made him pretty much indestructable to most physical attacks, and his taijutsu was incredible (along with his predicting ability).

    His potential was pretty much godly, and that's why he died. I can't even imagine how strong a healthy Kimimaro had the potential of being. Probably one of the strongest ninjas ever with enough time.

    kimmi's bones would have blocked hidans sythe, by the time hidan noticed, he would have been cut to ittie bittie pieces. that spear of his would be tested against kakuzu's body, and i think he would have won.

    yeah, i am a kimmimaro fanboy.:)
