    Being bloodlusted, Sasuke will imediately use Susanoo and Gaara will go airborne and will try to make more sand when he has the chance. However, a bloodlusted Sasuke probably won?t give him an opportunity for that, but Gaara will realise that it?s his only shot to win against Sasuke with Susanoo.

    Sasuke will spam Amaterasu against Gaara, just for him to block every shot with his sand. Gaara with manga knowledge knows external attacks won?t work against Susanoo. I don?t know if Gaara has enough sand to protect himself and at the same time make more sand. But if he has, he?ll make the soil below Sasuke turn to sand.

    This if Sasuke stays in the ground. Seeing Amaterasu being blocked, Sasuke can summon a taka and go airborne. However, I believe Sasuke will rely on his arrows first, and those arrows may take down Gaara if it can bypass his defenses.

    If Gaara survives long enough for pulling Sasuke out of his Susanoo, then he has a chance to win if he?s fast enough with another sand attack.

    Sasuke has some options to take out Gaara, while Gaara has a slim chance to win.

    I?ll give it to Sasuke 9/10 times with high diff.

    Bloodlusted, and at this range, Sasuke will probably resort to his big guns right off the bat and Gaara won't have much of an opportunity. Gaara has never seen Amaterasu actually initiated, so he could fall victim to that, especially if the flame is large enough. Otherwise, he is going to be under a wall of Enton, and quite frankly, Sasuke's Susano'o ought to be able to break through his sand early on. If Gaara gets airborne, he can survive most of what Sasuke can throw at him, except Kirin.

    I'll give this to Sasuke with mid-high difficulty.

    Sasuke's arrows vs. Garra sand doesn't bold well for Garra.

    In recent chapters, his sand defense seemed to be overwhelmed by a volley of swords from Susano..

    We've seen Sasuke's arrows pierce through a think trunk of Makoton.

    There is also the chidori variants which, which are tailored made to breach defenses.

    Overall with no "Favorable" conditions for garra such as field advantage, he doesn't stand much of a chance against someone with Sasuke's arsenal based entirely off his latest feats.

    Gaara hasn't enough sand here+Sasuke is bloodlusted so I ll give it to Sasuke with hard diff. Main problem for Gaara here is that he is limited only to gourd sand and have to grind more while BL Sasuke will immediately start to attack him with his strongest jutsu. He will burn though his gourd sand quite fast with 2-3 amaterasu shots and a couple of enton magatamas. Though this will take a great toll on Sasuke s chakra.

    Sasuke wins low difficulty.

    Bloodlusted means instant Susanoo followed by arrow spam (which Kakashi a mid-Kage tier shinobi with much better reaction feats then Gaara had to resort to Kamui to escape canonically), Enton magatama spam and Amaterasu. Assuming Gaara can even survive the initial barrage he then attacks with V4 Susanoo and Enton swords.

    MS Sasuke has the feats to be just better then Gaara and EMS Sasuke is hyped to be equal to KCM Naruto (not with feats though...) who is a good tier or 2 above Garra.

    Susanoo isn't instant and must go through stages to fully form.

    Also Gaara's sand has shown it is fully capable to deal w/ anything Susanoo has. And it isn't like Susanoo arrows have any impressive offensive capabilities.

    You see the Zetsu only get a little closer and V4 Susanno is out.

    Yes but the sheer speed of them is where their potency lies, I'm not going to argue that Gaara's sand can't block an arrow. However with a starting distance of 30m a barrage of Enton magatamas and arrows is going to break through Gaara's defense. Madara's magatama's almost broke through Gaara + Oonoki's defense, one or two arrows and some Magatamas can break through Gaara only in my opinion.

    ^No I don't see, Can't view mangareader.

    Either way Gaara has shown that he is fully capable and has the necessary defenses to block Amaterasu Magatamas and Susanoo arrows, the latter of which hasnt shown to pierce anything w/ a slight defensive feat.

    30m is a good distance between the two. And I think you under the concept that if Gaara has a defensive layer of sand blocking a Magatama, that the same sand will keep blocking magatama, whereas Gaara's defense is contanstly flowing making new layers of defense.

    Madara is on a whole nother level than any other shinobi bar Hiruzen and Hashirama. I wouldn't doubt that his Magatamas are far> Sasuke's or Itachi's. Quit comparing Madara's techs and their feats to Itachi and Sasuke.

    Sasuke can directly form his full Susano'o [1 (http://naruto.anifreak.com/manga/naruto/574/9/)].

    Sasuke's arrows have shown a comparable strength (and a superior speed) to Madara's Magatama; i don't think that Gaara can effectively defend himself from Amaterasu and Arrows spam.

    No they haven't, they couldn't peirce a tree, nor a snake and a spike sticking out of the ground. Their fucking laughable.


    And Gaara is extremely exhausted against Madara, look at what he's already protected against. Attacks that are way better than anything EMS Sasuke has shown.

    WOW Amaterasu Magatamas pierced Zetsus.

    Given, but granted he hasn't used many sand attacks on the scale of his part 1/Deidara battle self, throughout this war.

    His abilities have primarily been confined to a support role, and his defensive potential of his sand is still suspect.

    Remember Magatama would have breached his shield defense is not from assistance from Onoki.

    Considering Sasuke's arrows, have showcased and likely have more "Penetrating" power than the individual magatama's themselves I'd still compose the same argument above.

    Garra's arsenal is potent and effective, but it's evolved to more of a support role...... One on One anyone who is capable of "Breaching/outpacing his sand defense" is capable of besting him.

    Now, there are very few who can do the above, however Sasuke is one of them.

    One arrows is clearly not enough. The problem is that, given the mindset, Sasuke will start to spam Amaterasu and Arrows or Amaterasu Magatama, and Gaara just doesn't have enough starting sand for all this attacks.

    The fact that he was exhausted does not influence the sand's durability.

    ^But the sand in his gourd is both faster and stronger than any other sand.

    Gaara's sand is as strong as steel, an Amaterasu Magatama hasn't shown anthing spectacular.

    Sasuke can only shoot 1 arrow at a time. Not to mention that Gaara fights with clones.

    Sasuke via high difficulty. Gaara isn't an opponent to be taken lightly, given he has two Kages being beaten by him under his belt. One arrow is likely not going to be enough to pierce his defense, considering it tanked a fully formed Susano'o (minus armor) sword and required five total just to break it. (http://www.[Blocked Domain]/manga/Naruto/588/5) Not to mention he can block Enton and Amaterasu.

    But given Sasuke's capability of fully forming (http://www.[Blocked Domain]/manga/Naruto/574/10) in seconds, Gaara doesn't have many options of penetrating it. He can take flight...but so can Sasuke with is hawk summon.

    Susanoo is slow, Gaara's sand can get through it quickly and then its GG. Gaara has a number of ways to win while Sasuke has none.

    So, Gaara can defend himself well enough so as not to die from being hit by four susanoo swords (from madara, of all susanoo users..) and still be able to get up. I'd say his sand is pretty freakin' realiable when dealing with Susanoo, he's already shown to be able to pull Madara OUT of his susanoo and fling him around. His sand has also shown to block amaterasu when he met sasuke at the kage summit, and fast/durable enought to stop four susanoo blades from doing any real damage to him aside from knocking him backwards. Gaara wins high dif.

    Gaara is a powerhouse, its a good thing he don't have control of his old bijuu like Naruto and Bee do or he would damn near stomp everyone.

    One was probably the weakest kage we saw and the other had Gaara beat without Onoki helping him.

    The Fourth Kazekage could defeat Shukaku whenever he rampaged. He's not really 'weak'. Not only that, Gaara found the Clam on his own and bested Joki Boi, something not even Mu could do.

    I said Sasuke won, just that Gaara isn't someone to be taken lightly.

    Well I say Gaara wins this if he opts to go airborne and setup effect Attacks to buy time to grind more sand. But Gaara is Underrated when when he's not in the Desert or Suna like he'll run out of Sand Really Fast which I dont aee happening.

    Run out of sand? I dont think he can.. I mean, even if the sand gets damaged or hit by amaterasu, Sasuke would just have flaming sand chasing him. Not sure he can run out of sand, not like he's done it before. :headscrat

    No I actually meant he's underrated with his gourd with some people implying like Gaara is going to run out of sand in his fight or he wont have enough.

    Like I said in the other post l, I dont see that situation happening.

    Gaara has specifically said that turning stone into sand comes easy to him and he can do it in little to no time.

    Gaara grinds 1 pound of stone into sand from 55lbs of stone. Well while he grinding the other 54lbs into sand he can use that 1lb of sand that he's already grinded.

    Gaara will never run out of sand its impossible

    Danzo said (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v51/c479/5.html) that dodging the arrows wasn't easy. Danzo got pierced (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v51/c479/2.html) by an arrow straight through him. Kakashi admitted (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v52/c484/6.html) it would've hit him had he not used Kamui. Here (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v51/c478/9.html) is it piercing a tree (which you specifically said it couldn't do). It pierced Danzo here (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v51/c478/13.html) as well. Doesn't seem to laughable to me. Stop making stuff up.

    Amaterasu would be good game if it hits Gaara, he can't defend forever. The arrows would go right through his sand. Sasuke also has genjutsu to create openings and Raiton jutsu to pierce Gaara's sand. Gaara is one of my favorite characters and Sasuke is my absolute least favorite but you're underestimating him alot here.

    Amaterasu burns anything so it doesn't matter what it can pierce because as long as it touches Gaara, he'll burn to death.
