Re: Who can beat Sasuke with his current strength?
He is not that powerful yet, he was supposed to be dead already, remember? Bee raped him, but team taka saved him 3 times, as if his powers wasnt enough haxor, he got more 2 powerup characters to help him, otherwise he would be dead by now, but that would messup the plot.
Bee "finished" him, but then karin was there to heal him, then Bee did it again and Jugo was there to heal him and bee just stood still watching he being healed, then KB was about to "kill" him again, then Suigetsu saved his ass, yeah right, so yes, he is powerful and he wont die, just because the writer doesnt want Sasuke to die.
Wot i believe make ppl "go bias" is because it's so cheap to have ppl around sasuke that keep healing him all the time, yeah i forgot to mention, there is also tobi which is one of sasuke's powerup, tobi just sit around and if some1 is going to kill sasuke, he can just teleport, so it's like cheating, that doesn't make him powerful, only weak, but yet at the same time he is kind powerful, but not at the level that he would take anyone, by what we have seen, he should be dead, but kish doesn't want to let sasuke go.
@Kenshin Himura, I was reading one of your posts and u stated as fact that sasuke have been always more powerful than naruto, this is not true, it's the otherwise, sasuke have been seeking power to surpass naruto, yes in the begin of Naruto, sasuke was always more skilled than naruto, but it was naruto that was saving the day in every mission and sasuke many times asked to himself why naruto was getting stronger and stronger and he wasnt, his 1st goal on team 7 was to surpass naruto, he couldnt, than he left to seek more power.
After the time skip, he seemed to have more haxor tecs and speed than naruto, i wouldnt say more powerful... Then naruto become insanely powerful during Pain fight with sage mode, even tobi told sasuke that naruto is more powerful, then sasuke powered up again after Itachi battle, getting another bunch of haxor tecs...
So if we assume that kish would let sasuke die in battle, meaning there wont be anyone to heal him when he is near death, then any kage level character could beat sasuke, but he would put up a good fight, the main problem of sasuke is chakra and his hate, though now that is a kind of his new power "hate", though as far as we know he is not YET a host of any beast to access the power through hate, kind like what naruto does when he is mad.
imho Sasuke seems to be a weaker version of Itachi, kind like that 30% clone of Itachi, that doesnt mean he is weak, but he is getting stronger and stronger, one day he may surpass Itachi, but Sasuke still lacks of intelligence(because low chakra, he need to use his suttfs better), chakra(if he had alot he wouldnt need much intelligence) and experience.
