Have you never read the part when Kyuubi Mode naruto summoned dozen or more of his copies?
Airbending lacks offensive power to kill the base clones in my opinion,. He is alot better suited to use other elements.
As for combustion man, that same attack, even Sokka was reacting to it. I guess he has supersonic reactions too?
How fast was the explosion?Because Naruto is generally accepted as supersonic to hypersonic.
Here's the first battle with Combustion Man.
The supersonic to hypersonic speed feats apply only to his Sannin and Kyuubi Chakra modes. In base form, the kid's only at "faster than the eye can see" level of speed.
Those clones easily fast enough to blitz Aang .Plus they are fighting on the field which isn't crowded.
Applies only if the clones were in Sannin and Kyuubi Chakra modes, which the kid can't even spam as freely as he does in base form. Aang's Airbending would be perfect crowd control to deal with base level stat Shadow Clones coming from Naruto, especially if in character he won't feel the need to go for his powerful forms against Aang.
Scenario #1: Methinks being on a moving train could cause Lucy to screw up on accurately delivering lethal attacks to Claire and with the guy casually moving about the top of the Pussyfoot as he fended off Chane and Ladd, I believe he could win here.
Scenario #2: Lucy's vectors moving at hypersonic speeds make this a not so pleasant fight for Mr. Stanfield, even if he can see them.
Scenario #1: In character, Aang actually has a fairly good chance to win here. Naruto wouldn't be able to easily pull any deceptive tactics in a crowded arena and Aang could make use of Airbending and Earthbending should he have to deal with Shadow Clones. Those doubting the kid's speed should recall he was able to dodge a high-speed blast coming from the Combustion Man's attack in their first encounter. Being able to float around in the air via Airbending combined with his expertise with all four elements gives him a more versatile means of dealing with Naruto.
Scenario #2: Aang's screwed in this one. Naruto in his new Kyuubi Chakra Mode has far greater speed, strength and durability than his younger foe. Before Avatar State Aang can even take to the air, he'll be instantaneously killed from a high-speed blow from Naruto as he still has the durability of a normal human.
Two bullet-timers against three men in peak human condition? Hmmm. I think I'll favor the two men from Rurouni Kenshin, especially considering Hiko's godly status within the series.
1. Johan Liebert (Monster)- Whereas many of the villains above are either your cookie-cutter variety or around seemingly to look badass from having ridiculous abilities, Johan is a master of manipulation who psychologically manipulates and drives his foes to either follow his lead or kill themselves when he desires said person as a pawn for his plans or if they are a threat to him. Johan was able to nearly drive the population of a small town into killing themselves and had influential figures of authority under his influence at points throughout Monster.
2. Legato Bluesummers (Trigun)- One of the few anime baddies to succeed at driving the hero into a corner regarding his moral beliefs, in this case Vash and his pacifism.
3. The Count (Gankutsuou)- One of anime's best Magnificent Bastardswho created the image of a kind-hearted, wealthy nobleman yet was actually a cruel and manipulative man who took advantage of the kindness and wealth of others in his quest of revenge against three influential families who wrecked his life decades earlier because he was a threat to their status in society.
4. Light Yagami (Death Note)- One of the few cases I've seen in anime where the "hero" could be considered both the protagonist and antagonist of his series. His megalomania made him care less over who he manipulated and killed in his quest of creating an ideal society that his warped mind believes in, including those among his friends and family.
5. Griffith (Berserk)- A man whose desire for power was so great he sacrificed his former comrades in the Band of the Hawk to be fodder for demons, psychologically scarred his second-in-command Caska by brutally raping her and drove Guts into his merciless quest of revenge.
