Before I write I must say that it is possible to disagree without being disagreeable. What I mean is that in terms of versality naruto's rasengan variations do not allow him any ability to alter his fighting style, especially when compared to Sasuke. Let's look at the different variations: Basic rasengan- Distract opponent (probably with KB) and ram it into the opponent. Very short range. (No link given because if you are like me you are tired of seeing that jutsu.) Odama Rasengan-Distract opponent (probably with KB) and ram it into the opponent. Very Short range. X Rasenshuriken-Distract opponent (probably with KB) and ram it into the opponent. Very Short range. X Are u seeing a pattern? Well u r supposed to. These options although they vary in power offer NO possible alternative fighting style and create the impression of no real growth by Naruto as if u are able to dodge the basic rasengan, u probably will be able to dodge all of his rasengan jutsu. Now lets look a Sasuke's chidori varations. Basic chidori- Immobilise/trap opponent and deliver powerful blow. Very short range. X Chidori Nagashi- My personal fav and allows Sasuke to not only repel physical attacks but to inflict serious damage to anyone touching him. Very powerful defensive move. X Chidori needles- Can be used to 1)Repel and overpower weapon attacks 2)Destroy earth based jutsu (As he did with Deidara) 3)Use as a quick, low chackra way of inflicting damage onto opponent. Good mid to long range weapon.X Chidori infused sword-Vastly increases the range and power of his Kusagni sword and he also has the ability to use this power without the sword as a medium and extend up to a range of 5 metres. It therefore allows him the power of two swords simultaneously and is excellent for short to mid rage battles. X Passing a Chidori Current into the ground- seen in his battle with Itachi, it allows Sasuke to attack an enemy without creating an opening. In addition. because of its nature it allows Sasuke to create an opening for his other Chidori moves as it forces the opponent to jump away from the jutsu as the only means of escape. Excellent short to mid range set up manuver. X Finally Kirin- Channels the Electricty of nature and harnesses it into a giant Lightning bolt that is unavoidable from any range. Extremely powerful at the cost of almost no chackra to the user. Excellent Mid to long range attack and Sasuke's strongest attack (excluding MS techniques). X Now it should be clear that in terms of overall range and versality, Naruto's rasengan variations offer little in battle when compared to Sasuke's chidori variations. Not only do Sasuke's chidori variations cover all the three ranges of fighting (i.e short,mid and long range), they also offer Sasuke a far wider range of options when fighting at these ranges, and the ablity to create openings making for a far more interesting battle. Before the flaming starts, I must say that I am a huge Naruto fan but facts are facts and these are facts. One can only hope against hope that Kishi will address this huge disparity in power between the two most influencial characters in the manga in a way that is both fair and logical. Wow this turned out far longer than I anticipated. Hope You like it though. People keep sayin that its foolish to compare elemental to spatial recomposition. I cant understand that logic.U must accept that Spatial recomposition is limited BUT u also have to accept that it is the only technique (aside from KB) that Naruto has shown a profiiency for in part 2. So with that in mind, my comparison is meant to show the versality that Sasuke has in his arsenal as opposed to Naruto, and secondly how continued emphasis on Different variations of Rasengan by Kishi is absolutely pointless at this point given the natural limitations of this attack. What Naruto needs DESPERATELY are attacks that would allow for greater versalty and NOT another Rasengan variation. Therefore all the flaming about spatial vs elemental recomposition is really not necessary so save it.
