Hidan Strength Completely Analyzed
This threads serves the purpose as the same as Owarij's thread: http://www.narutobase.net/forums/sho...d.php?t=282001. Unfortunate, I'm not skilled with fonts and stuff so the fonts will be basic.
People tend to overlook the strength of the character just because of the results/outcome of their deaths. Lets get started on why Hidan by feats and hype (yes hype bare with me) makes him wanted for Akatsuki.
Stats (I spoiled it cause I did paint job wrong):
As you can see what he lacks is Genjutsu and Intellengents. Hidan's characteristics fits perfectly for these stats because he has yet to show any good feats for those, but the fact it made average means something.
Hidan's Taijutsu seem to be underrated a bit.
His Unorthodox style was able to keep up fighting a close-range fighter and long range:
Dodging and evasive skills were on point:
He was able to dodge buijuu's rampages, reguardless of the after-math of the battlefield:
And eventually finds an opening to kill:
Hidan's fighting style also catches his opponent's by surprise while multitasking with his weapons, needing a partner to look out for you:
That scan above this Spoiler ^ also shows that his style also pressures his opponent, leaving no choice but to get killed by his weapons or by ritual:
Hidan has good mind games with his Ninjutsu and Taijutsu.
Note: One last thing I would mention that gives him the upper-hand in Taijutsu is... HE NEVER BLOCKS! This could be an advantage because he is willing to tank a move just to scratch his opponent.
The obvious needs to be mention. I seen people saying, one example, Tsunade can punch him and the inside of his bones will no longer function.
Physical force doesn't decapitate Hidan, only cutting does:
He has also been pierce in places that shouldn't make him even walk/move again:
The BIG QUESTION:
By his feats, how was he able to defeat jinjuriki/Buijuu's?!
Well it is confirm that Buijuu's can bleed:
By abusing his immortality, special weapon and their size he can clearly get a scratch.
-From Wiki put I believe its accurate:
In Naruto Hiden: Sha no Sho Character Official Data Book, Kishimoto revealed that Hidan's design, with the skeletal patterns and scythe, were meant to resemble a shinigami (死神, "death god," "grim reaper"), because "Hidan uses curses and things". He also noted that he originally planned for the scythe to have a number of special tricks, but "didn't have time to show them all".
This hype should also be up there with Kakuzu's other mask, his potential with all of it in display, and Sasori's 298 human puppets. Thus, making Hidan a True S-rank ninja.
