Really leaning towards the Stern Ritter
This. More members and some top tier fighters as well. If Haschwald can just destroy Ichigo's Bankai like it's nothing, I dont see the Akatsuki lasting very long. Plus, some of the lower members of the Stern Ritter managed to beat some Captains and Vice Captains.
@The_Legendary_SuperSaiyan_Hulk: And I was just about to elaborate on that same fact.
@Ikki_Minami_: If As Nodt manages to hit any member of the Akatsuki with his thorns, then it's game over. His thorns have the ability to instill a deep seated fear of him inside whoever was struck by his thorns, causing them to lose control of the situation and all rational thought. And that's just one member of the Stern Ritter.
Driscoll Berci has the ability to increase his power the more he kills. Hell, they guy can get stronger just by killing gnats and flies and still power-up by the same degree as if he killed a human. Plus being a quincy, he has considerable speed, and is also strong enough to overpower and nearly kill Hisagi until Yamma stepped in.
And Jerome Guizbatt can utilize sound waves produced from a roar, almost similar to Zebura. Although he was dispatched by Kenpachi easily, we should be able to know that none of the Akatsuki have the durability to equal to Kenpachi's.
The three above aren't even the Mid Tier Stern Ritter either. And as taichokage said, we still dont even know how strong the other Stern Ritter are.
So with that siad, Pein isn't even really that much to worry about. Haschwald can dispose of him.
Vast majority of Sternritters lack feats. Notable fighters are the Llyod brothers, Haschwald (who only has one feat), As Nodt, and OMQ. I'm also assuming that they don't have the Bankais they stolen from their respective captains.
The only thing that the Sternritters have on Akatsuki are speed + durability. Without Pain, they lsoe by a hair's breadth. With him, they rage on Sternritters.
Seeing this is the original Akatsuki members I might have to side with the Nazi Archers. However,
I will give brief reasons to why the Akatsuki might win in this battle (Despite the lack of durability + Speed)
We have Pein with his Six Paths fighting in the same area where he fought Sage mode Naruto, this would mean that Nagato would be in the mountains somewhere playing stationary. Going off by that fact, that would mean Pein would have the ability to resurrect himself and everyone else that dies during the battle (without worrying about leaving himself open)
Also, we're forgetting Nagato's ability to manipulate gravity via Shinra Tensei, Bashino Tensei, and Chibaku Tensei, which also plays a huge factor in this fight since Pein could manipulate the environment with any of these attacks. Along with rejecting whatever comes within his vicinity. But the only problem with this is the five second interval from whenever he uses the attacks, I think Chibaku Tensei though would be a huge problem.
Tobi is a problem too, his ability to become intangible makes him nigh-invincible, and if he touches any of them it's probably over (BFR). He also has the ability to distort the sizes of his kunais, fire jutsus, etc via his Teleportation Jutsu. (That might be a problem too.)
Last we have Orochimaru, he might be be a big factor and problem in this fight too considering his vast knowledge over many Forbidden Jutsus, Summonings, and even his crazy regeneration.
Then we have Itachi, single swing from Susano'o and its over. (But considering the circumstances, this is an unhealthy Itachi so he might not have a chance to even use Susano'o from the start). He also has Amaterasu to join but as I stated, this is an unhealthy Itachi so he might only have one chance to use either of the jutsus once.
