sasuke beat the raikage
No matter how you look at the fight Sasuke won.
When a fight is interrupted the one with less injuries is declared the winner. I for one think if Sasuke had came out of the fight without an arm people would make fun of him forever, if Raikage only had some bruises.
If you wanna go what would have happened after the clash, Raikage was hiding behind a pillar while Sasuke fought other super powerful guys like Gaara (another kage) and Darui with the Big*Susanoo*and C suggested them to retreat. If it was Sasuke receiving healing at this point people would say he had lost.*
Fact is, Raikage could have continued his fight with Sasuke even after Gaara interrupted yet he knew it wasnt wise, which means they all ganged up on him later.
The only thing people have is during the clash and I just don't see Sasuke dying with just 1 blow whereas a previous one merely bruised him, and this time he also had defense. Hell, he had even more defense. He had*susanoo*and Enton spikes.
Susanoo*ribs were broken but the aura still protects him, reason why he wasn't burned by Mizukage's initial lava.*
And Enton is a jutsu apart from Amaterasu, or it wouldn't have another name, and the databook states it.
So basically Raikage would have his leg on a stick to fall on*Susanoo*which would result in Sasuke having little to no injury.
Then with just 1 leg, Raikage wouldn't be able to avoid Sasuke's Big*Susanoo*and would have died atleast without Darui's help.
Bee stated Raikage is lefthanded, which is the arm he lost, so esentially in fighting Sasuke, and being a straight taijutsu fighter he lost a lot. Is like a boxer losing his best arm.
TBH I don't see why people say that that clash would have done both of em in. It was just another one. Sasuke was still protected, and A wouldnt have died. Losing his arm didnt seem to bother him physically that much, but hed be unable to dodge*Susanoo*without a leg.
I then think that Darui + Raikage could have beaten Sasuke, but Raikage by himself? Nah.
