@GIRUGAMESH: ok look deflecting an attack is not the same as tanking it thats for sure, they didnt explode yet, so they do give out the damage that they can deal usually, there not beams they are bombs. second, all the other biju got hurt by much much less than what happened to him. and so what if it went on in his mind, the kyuubi wasnt weakened by it, and the giant rasengan was first used in there, and lastly, I'm pretty sure thats pain in his face when he was hit, just because someone doesnt fall from an attack doesnt mean that it didnt do anything to hurt them, he was still damaged by it. also, how would he hit luffy with a bijuu bomb if he cant land it? I've said it before, but hes not going to blow it up on himself, and luffy moves fast enough to dodge and get close enough to start using the elephant gun gatling. i am willing to say that maybe it did only affect him because it was in his mind, but you have nothing to say that it wouldnt work. post the scans of the pein attack so I can go over them myself.
@GIRUGAMESH: lets see a giant rasengan hasnt shown as much power as a elephant gun, it is probably as strong as a giant pistol, yet it still did this to the kyuubi
so he blocked one of them at first, he certainly didnt block all those so nice try, and sure he recovered but the difference is Luffy can keep it up for a long time so dnt go thinking that this is over for luffy
@FormerCrimsonKing: oh that i know he would lose lol i just wanted to make his case against naruto, and unless a lightning bolt hits luffy while in G3rd out of nowhere then I doubt he'll do much against him haha
@FormerCrimsonKing: i thought the mind trip was why to but that was the first time he used a giant rasengan but after he was able to use it. the reason it has that potential imo is because he was busting an island sized ship, he was going to odestroy the whole thing but was stopped
@FormerCrimsonKing: the kyuubi didnt take naruto's giant rasengan very well, not to mention luffy can keep up the attack even while injured, and its a potential island busting attack when hes going nonstop
every person who wants to wank against characters who can beat the originals use the edo versions because they cant die. its a bunch of crap, and thats why I had the admirals go against the entire edo army and they won, how? because they are logia types and haki masters. THAT IS WHY WE TURN OFF INTANGIBILITY, TO MAKE IT FAIR!!!
