kimimaro takes this
@UltimateHero0406: With his sword, yes. But Zabuza's water jutsu could still be used to drown Kimimaro. As long as Zabuza doesn't get in close range of Kimimaro or Kimi resorts to Sawarabi no Mai, Zabuza has a shot at taking him out.
@Dream: that wont be enough. Kimimaro could still just hit zabuza with a bone spear or digital shrapnel through the water. Plus even kisames water prison has a weak point. Getting out will be easy for Kimimaro. He was super compressed 6 meters under ground and got out just fine.
just hit zabuza with a bone spear or digital shrapnel through the water.
Wouldn't work. Shooting a solid projectile like a bullet (or in this case, Kimi's bones) underwater would undergo so much resistance from being submerged that it greatly reduces the effective range and lethality of the fired projectiles.

Crushing pressure to one's bones versus sapping of one's oxygen while fully submerged underwater? This is a far different scenario for Kimimaro here.
I admit if kimimaru had some restrictions to his abilities zabuza would take it no problem but what is to stop kimimaro from simply releasing his bone out of his body when in the prison? Or idk... swimming O_o. Zabuza would have him under water sure but kimmimaro could simply swim to the top and walk on top of the water if its like kisame's jutsu considering he just has to have his bones sticking out and just swim so he can be guarded.
