What's the distance? Sesshomaru has better hax, but Minato has the better speed. If Minato goes beast mode then it's who ever hits who first.
@5th: He can blitz Sesshomaru, but that is only part of the factors. We also need to know the distance, and is he in base which I think he is.
Sesshomaru's attack will hit for sure and kill him. Minato will need something nice and strong for Sesshomaru, which there's also the fact that his blade will save him again.
Since this is in character Sesshomaru will probably swing Bakusaiga and kill him, while Minata's first thought isn't to go beast mode.
@Kobra678: His first thought isn't to go into beast mode. He has only went into this form when taking on 10 tails powered obito.
What advantage does he have other than Speed?
Sesshomaru has better AOE,Flight, Powerful smell ( can smell from miles away) , regeneration, and Hax'd.
Sorry for the misconception. Read wrong lol happens at night, but I gotcha.
Anyway. Bakusagia is his first attack that he'll use. He has used it before and came down for a close up, but he's not going to reply on that.
These guys are IC remember,
Sesshomaru is pretty cocky IC while Minato is merciless.
Sesshomaru isn't Merciless as well? Sesshomaru has been stated to not even hesitate in killing his opponent.
And his regen is limited to a degree.
Yes, but helps him in this battle.
Minato could drag the fight out long enough to figure out he needs Kyuubi to one shot.
How could he drag this fight out? If Sesshomaru's first swing would kill him?
@Whats_out_the_bag: 30 feet.
Well with that being said, Minato could actually pull some stuff off. But the question is what would he do that would affect someone with better durability and dc than him?
Usually when they do this they know something about that character, which they will then use their secretpower. We still haven't seen characters like Orochimaru go all out. Hell we didn't see Sage mode until Jirya fought Pain. So what makes you think he'll just flip out the BM to attack him? Most ninja's fight smart and won't show their true power until the end of the battle. That's how Naruto characters fight, never have we ever seen a Naruto character jump out and use their full power in the first sec of a battle. That in it self is out of character for their entire verse.
