    Kakuzu is weaker

    I don't remember one single impressive feat for him, and I don't see Kisame losing to both Immortals Arc Naruto+Kakashi either :oldshrug

    Both are both Mid-Kage but I honestly think Kakuzu is at the bottom

    Kakuzu. Kisame has showings that outright spit on anyone bar the Doujutsu trio. He arguably buttrapes Obito and high diffs Pein going by feats.

    Sasori is stronger than Deidara according to the manga, so it can not be the weakest mid akatsuki, Deidara also has better portrayal and feats than Kisame and Kakuzu, so the weakest is between Kakuzu and Kisame, I always believed that Kisame was stronger, but in this forum I read some say the opposite and that's why I have the doubt.

    Kakazu is impressive. He clapped The 2 Tails Beast tanking an attack from her and Kakashi, Ino and Choji were destroyed. However, Kisame definitely beats him. He eats all his jutsu, drains all his chakra and drowns him.

    Obito
    Nagato/Pain
    Itachi
    Kisame
    Kakazu
    Deidara - These 3 in bold are very arguable as to where there are in the list in my opinion.
    Sasori

    Konan (Higher with preparation time)
    Hidan

    Deidara has better destructive feats then most if not all of the Akatsuki if that's what you're going off. Kakazu vs Deidara is arguable. Kisame literally just eats Deidara's bombs

    Kakazu is stronger than Kisame but both in the same tier ,Kisame can reach a higher height against certain enemies like a ( Jin) but against most common enemies Kakuzu will perform much better

    I think Kakuzu if only for being less relevant and given less respect by characters. :hm

    Kisame was praised by his opponents and accomplished his goal of sending info to Obito while Kakuzu died mocked by Kakashi.

    Kisame is weaker than Deidara or Sasori, Kisame said he considered Deidara one of the stronger Akatsuki members, and Sasori is stronger than Deidara...

    Kakazu obviously mostly cause way too many top tiers use raiton which shits on him.

    Chakra Absorption is just more useful.

    It took Ino-Shika-Cho, Kakashi, Yamato, and Naruto (who surpassed Kakashi) with prep time and at different intervals to defeat Kakuzu who didn't even go all-out until the end of the fight. Whilst Kisame was defeated twice by Guy (who is equal or at least close to Kakashi). Kakuzu's portrayal is definitely above Kisame's. Anyway, my tier list of the Akatsuki is this.
    High Kage Tier
    1. Obito
    2. Pain
    Mid Kage Tier
    1. Itachi
    2. Orochimaru
    Low Kage Tier
    1. Sasori
    2. Kakuzu
    3. Deidara
    4. Kisame
    Jonin Tier
    1. Konan
    2. Hidan

    I am saying good Raiton cuts through his defense like butter which is a problem when you consider the amount of Raiton Users in the Kage Class.

    Sure, but that's only one aspect of it.
    a lightning attack (or weapons enhanced by lighting) will cut through all other characters as well... :catshrug

    Deidara, love him as I do

    Kakuzu and Sasori have to much potential with their styles
    KiSamehada is too troublesome
    Deidara only has one style

    I have them:
    Konan > Oro (alone, no prep) >> Sasori > KiSamehada > Kakuzu (better hearts put him equal to Sasori) >> Deidara = Tobito

    This thread should be a discussion between Konan, Kisame, and Deidara. One of them is the weakest. Kakuzu is a senior member of Akatsuki, and decidedly not a candidate for weakest mid-tier member.

    I used to say Kisame is rated fairly on this forum, but I guess not. Pretty underrated. Kakuzu's the weakest.

    Also if it wasn't obvious, "Seniority" in the akatsuki depends on who you're paired with. Kisame being a junior to Itachi doesn't mean he'd be a junior to Kakuzu or Sasori for example. It essentially amounts to claiming Kisame is inferior to Kakuzu because he's inferior to Itachi.

    Of these two, I'd peg Kakuzu as slightly weaker than Kisame as the latter has a more terrifying ultimate technique (Daikoudan). Kisame would also beat him out in a 1v1 due to being able to absorb all of his ninjutsu.

    There isn't really a big difference in their strength though.

    I think in a normal scenario kakazu would do better than kisame considering the experience and versatility he possess along with knowledge.
    Most mid tier Akatsuki likely are on the same tier with each other performing better than other under specific scenarios

    SB like Obito Itach a tier above them would perform better than them in likely any scenario

    I'd say Deidara would be the weakest of the mid Akatsuki but between these two I'd slightly favor Kisame as being the stronger of the two
