Re: Who was the best water release (suiton) user?
well as they said, does the end, justify the means.. getting the work done is irrelevant in discussing one level of skill.. as you said, most suiton users expel water from their mouths (Tobirama, Kisame, Mei, Darui, etc.) so deffinitely, that means is the routinary way of using water based jutsus.. with that, Tobirama is clearly the most skilled in water based jutsus as he is the only one shown of utilizing suiton techniques in such means.. in response to your query, what is the reason why Kisame is better than Tobirama, when it is clear that Kisame can't perform jutsus done by Tobirama..

as you have said, for someone to become a great suiton user not only do they have to show strong suiton feats, they also have to show enough skill and mastery of suiton to create original jutsus.. Tobirama has exactly showed that by creating water justus in a manner that none since him has displayed.. Kisame has given the chance to show many of his jutsus while Tobirama has not.. judging from what they have shown perform in their most basic, i cannot see how can a more advanced water user be considered weaker.. and as you have said, its not all about power, its about skill and mastery of the art..
