1. Still, a simple blade attack took the guy's arm off and Gama got away scott free. He's not all that.
Yeah, because Gamabunta jumped away right after he slashed his arm off. So what? This is the same blade attack that Gamabunta used to cut into Pain's Ceberus, same Ceberus that was able to tank a RM-enhanced FRS unscatched. Except that time, Gamabunta had no trouble doing it, whereas he did immense difficulty slashing the Shukaku's arm off. You act like just because Gamabunta didn't get injured in that moment means the Shukaku is unimpressive and slow as hell. No, it doesn't mean that.
2. I'm not arguing Byakuya. I'm arguing Yammy.
Then we're getting completely off-topic, seeing as this is a Byakuya vs Gaara thread.
3. They were using it most of the fight but he was still able to drop them both in the end. Plus Chad.
Show me the scans were Yammy was able to catch a speeding Rukia, Renji, and Chad, because all I can find is a completely off-panel fight between Yammy and Rukia, Renji, and Chad.
4. Shukaku's air bullets (which are his only effective attack)
Forgetting about the Bijuudama, aren't you?
missed Gama who is the same size.
I don't see your point. All this means is that Gamabunta is faster than the Renkuudan. Doesn't mean that a Shunpoless Byakuya will be able to dodge it, nor does it mean that Yammy will dodge it
And Shukaku isn't the most mobile fighter.
No, he isn't, but speed means nothing in this fight.
And yeah that was my point. He could barely fight Gama moving at the same speed while Yammy tagged 2 opponents who were faster than him.
Sand is not doing squat to Yammy. Period point blank.
Okay. But I didn't say anything about sand attacks.
He took hits from Kenpachi who would would turn Shukaku into a litter box.
Except he got cut apart by those attacks, so you're going nowhere by stating that Yammy took hits from a patched kenpachi who was just running around, casually slashing Yammy up, whose Hierro offered no defense against them. Shukaku can do the exact same thing.
And maybe not in one hit I guess but after about 2 or 3 or some balas, Shukaku is going down. They pack a lot more of a punch than air bullets.
Btw, we should get back to Byakuya vs Gaara. Do you think that Byakuya will beat the Shukaku?
