Does the wolves have to bite to explode?
Its not farfetched that incredible number of ceros would soak up respire.
Actually, yes it is. There was apparently no limit to it, and Barragan's respiras would go through them.
You are approaching no limits fallacy. If its that powerful he should have aged away the barriers with ease as well. But it did not.
He should have been able to age the explosion with ease inside the field. But it did not. He has to keep spewing respire for that to occur.
I will say it again.
Respira dissipates when it comes in contact with matter, (not sure how that affects air), Ceros can slow it down and Starrk only needs to slow down a portion enough for his size.
Its spam vs a stationary guy spewing out.
Respira doesn't go on forever, it will dissipate the more matter it makes contact for it to age away.
Its not like an everlasting wave.
HAHAHA. Ahem. Sorry, but you're getting way ahead of yourself. I am not going anywhere close to it. If I said he could erase an attack from SSJG Goku? Of course. If it was a full power attack from the Juubi? Yes. But Stark? Well, unless you want to suggest that his ceros are way beyond Soi Fon's bankai (they're not, by the way, going by everything that has been suggested), yes, they will be erased too.
...go back and watch the fight, he erased the barriers just fine. Don't forget, he was toying with them the whole time. As soon as got pissed the barriers were like nothing to him, just as he is pissed with Stark in this fight. Besides, Stark's ceros have been shown to be a widespread fire, not concentrated into a single spot. If you can show me a scan suggesting otherwise then great, but until then, Stark's ceros get erased just like everything else. Barragan has never shown to tire using the ability, he could release it again and again. Stark would not be able to continuously repel his attacks forever.
Stark himself noted that his ceros wouldn't even be able to inflict fatal injuries on the people he was fighting (the 2 vizards and Shunsui). And yet the kido vizored, who was on the same level as them, was stunned that anyone could survive Soi Fon's bankai (it was even noted to have damaged his best barrier):
Soi Fon's bankai is clearly much stronger than Stark's ceros, and yet Barragan didn't even take it seriously. The only reason he was hit at all the second time around is because he totally underestimated them and was too busy laughing his ass off at their efforts. The thing is, you are applying Barragan when he was toying with them to an angry Barragan. When he was pissed, his power was tearing through kidos.
Barragan not giving two craps:
And Barragan giving several craps:
The vizored had to don his mask just for his barrier to give any delay at all.
@GIRUGAMESH: Are you kidding me? Show me a scan and or clip of Barragan aging a cero or any type of energy attack for that matter. Theoretics hold no weight here and you know it. From your logic, Barragan should have been able to just make the entire battlefield disappear just by being there, or, like 321zigzag1 said, he should have been able to age the kido barriers from the beginning. Barragan is not reaching Starkk with Respira. End of discussion. Soi Fan is fast, but by your logic, just because people with abilities similar to and or greater than hers could keep up with Starkk, Barragan can catch him with respira? No.No.No. What's keeping Starkk from sniping Barragan from a distance? Remember, the only reason Soi Fan was caught with respira is because she is a close combat specialist and she had to close in on her opponent to deal damage until she used her bankai. Im not doubting Barragans ability, but respira is being overrated. Besides, you must be forgetting that every time a wolf is defeated, it is replaced by 2 more. Barragan just can't win when he just causes many more problems for himself. It's going to be a never ending battle the more he destroys the wolves.
Does a cero last forever? No? There's your answer. Respira would age it as easily as it did kido or just about anything else. Fact: anything that does not last forever can be erased by Barragan.
And what on earth are you talking about? You're going off on a rant that makes no sense. Erase the whole battlefield? If he wanted to with respira, sure, but there's not much point to it. And I never suggested that his auto field extends for miles.
End of discussion? Cease your wanking, you have proved nothing with your statements. Were you pissed when you wrote that or something? Barragan was aging the kido barriers, look back over the chapters.
'No.No.No'? Ok...get back to me when you have something to back yourself up with, because my argument still stands.
If person A is as fast or nearly as fast as person B and they get hit with a casual attack, then there is a decent chance that person B would get hit if attacked by loads of serious attacks.
Your reasoning is flawed again, Soi Fon didn't rush in when she got tagged, she was flying away as fast as she could- and still got tagged. Respira speed>Soi Fon speed, this is fact. The fact that you make so many clear errors prevents me from taking your argument seriously.
And again, the wolves are not just being hit or destroyed, they are being aged. And honestly, if Barragan was bloodlusted then he wouldn't give a damn about the wolves, he'd just fire off bombardments of respiras against Stark. You can try to downplay respira all you want, Stark is not getting through. And even if he did land a bunch of ceros, so what? If lots of them weren't even strong enough to even deliver fatal wounds to those vizoreds, then how the hell are they supposed to put down Barragan?
As ever, Barragan wins. The wolves need to get close range to even do anything (have fun with that Stark), the ceros would still be erased (and according to Stark's own statement, would barely even affect Barragan even if they did hit) and the respiras from a pissed Barragan would tag Stark before long.
But remember that Baraggan dilates time as well. If his respira can't age a blast quickly enough, he can halt it giving him more than enough time to avoid it. That's what he did the first time Soifon used her bankai on him and it had no effect. The only reason it didn't work the second time was because Hacchi put 5 massive barriers around him so he had nowhere to go. Even then he tanked it albeit with damage. Starrk has no such way to confine Baraggan so he could avoid Starrk's attacks endlessly.
