I don't know which one of these to throw my vote behind, they're both extremely fast teleportation techniques. Which one do you think is better, kindly listing reasons for said opinion, just to know which one you guys pick FTW.

IT is superior but FTG is more practical in it's own verse

IT has vastly greater range than FTG and can be done with minimal reserves consumption and can probably be spammed. Only problem is that an energy source is required, which for the most case, wouldn't even be a problem in combat situations.

FTG can be done at will with a thought whereas IT requires a finger to the forehead (although I do believe there is a variant where one can just do it by thought). And you just need a seal tag to teleport to, which in many cases can be a severe limitation.

Overall IT is significantly better

Let's see:

Shunkan Idou (Instant Transmission)

Pros

  • More distance can be covered.
  • Requires minimum preparation to use.
  • Doesn't consume much for ki reserves.
  • Many people can be transported at a time with ability, more so than Flying Thunder God.

Cons

  • Requires a ki target to be concentrated on to be able to transport.
  • Not practical for use in most battle scenarios due to said concentration requirement.

Flying Thunder God

Pros

  • Versatile ability that can be used for both transport and combative scenarios.
  • Doesn't require prep time in transporting to a targeted point.

Cons

  • Means of using the technique requires a certain seal applied at certain points on objects and people to be able to use it.
  • Large objects and groups of people consume more chakra for use of it.
  • Effectiveness of the technique in battle depends on the user's skills and physical capabilities in combat.
  • A highly advanced technique as such where only a small number of ninja have mastered it.

So breaking things down:

Best for Transporting: Shunkan Idou (less energy consumption, can cover greater distance and doesn't require as much preparation to use)

Best for Combat: Flying Thunder God (if enough locations are tagged with a seal, the user can transport themselves very quickly to tagged areas without needing to focus on where they want to go. This also allows a physically capable user to quickly move about the battlefield to pick off foes.)

Best Overall: Shunkan Idou (More benefits to its use, despite its impracticality for most scenarios in combat)

Thanks. I think I'll throw my vote behind IT over FTG.
