Unless I'm missing anything from filler arcs, Tenten is mainly a weapons specialist who is skilled in a diverse number of weapons that she can use in melee and ranged combat. Her tactics for ranged combat won't cut it as they are fairly predictable and Kenshin would quickly know when to anticipate them thanks to his greater battle experience, as he could easily evade thrown projectiles or cut through/ block Tenten's weapons with his sakabatou, which can cut through steel and Kenshin is no slouch in the speed department as he could evade gunfire from a Gatling gun during the final moments of his conflict with the Oniwabanshu.

This would force Tenten into melee combat, which would be a major boon for Kenshin as he is a formidable foe in close combat with Hiten Mitsurugi and has a diverse number of techniques at his disposal to counter and strike down Tenten depending on battle scenario, which Tenten is lacking for engaging a close-range battle with Kenshin.

Overall, I'm picturing Kenshin prevailing in this fight. While both fighters here should be about on par with one another in stats, Tenten lacks the large amount of battle experience Kenshin has as he would be able to quickly predict her methods of attack and force her into a position that would lead him to take her out with any of his Hiten Mitsurugi techniques.

Minus variety of weapon spam and scroll usage, I am pretty sure Kenshn is quite superior. He even has bullet time reflexes at worst case and cut steel with his strength.

Part 2 Tenten would lose as well.

Kenshin due to speed and experience.

Kenshin's speed is far beyond anything tenten can deal with.

Kenshin takes it in my opinion.

Well inconsistencies always exist but I say the tag if I recall has to do with more opponents keeping up or that one of the antagonists who was faster than him, forgot his name who was under Shiskio I believe.

Other than long shower scroll what does she have?

I mean there is the kunai bomb but other than that. She can't win cqc.

Kunai bombs would probably be the deal breaker here if it gets near Kenshin. Tenten should be able to use standard jutsu as well right? (I.E. Substitution, Clone Jutsu, etc.)

Even post-timeskip Tenten would get slaughtered.

@othus12: That's a lot of information on them

On topic: I'll go with Kenshin for the reasons above, Tenten was never used to her full potential in the series

@321zigzag1: You're thinking of Sojiro the tenken. His fighting style was so fast Kenshin could only see the marks he left behind and could barely keep track of him. The only reason why Kenshin beat him was because of how powerful the Amakakeru Ryu No Hirameki is and its speed boost. Kenshin takes this.

Uh guys, Tenten didn't have her kunai bombs until after timeskip which were shown during Team Gai's battle against the Kisame clone. This battle is Tenten pre-timeskip.

Let's see. Dodging thrown weapons or dodging bullets? I wonder which is faster...

Kenshin stomps. He is faster, stronger, and more expereinced. There is no debate.

Kenshin. While i think he would lose to plenty of Chuunin level characters, Tenten is not one of them. Speed-wise she is weak and her attacks are predominantly conventional non firearm weapons which should be avoidable by Kenshin.
