Re: Rank the Akatsuki
It is fun when the opposition uses ill-informed information and throws around insults as if he is wholly correct, that is why.

For you information, the bird didn't pierce gaara's shield, the spiders just got inside and Gaara didn't have time to react.
Yep, that is what I said, how you got anything else out of this amazes me.
What pierced Gaara's shield, the C3 or the spiders? Okay, my point exactly.
And yet during the war, without the Shukaku, he is able to create such a huge sandstorm in which his dad exclaimed was the effect of the Shukaku right? And then continue to battle potent forces without rest, and never show any signs of depleting chakra, right? But in the fight against Deidara he controls sand already present in the vicinity and that depletes his chakra so much more than the aforementioned scenario? Lol, you just made a funny.
Also, his sand shield and armor consumes a lot of chakra. Can't you make a direct link here? He previously exhausted his chakra protecting the village. Is that to hard for you to understand?
Also life force and chakra is intertwined which is why Kakashi died from depleted chakra. The blast to Gaara's face depleted his life force which consequently affected his chakra, not the other way around. If Gaara didn't take that blast to the face he would still be up and running fine.
Sad, let me dumb it down for you. Kakashi has the Sharingan and can predict movements yes, and yet Kakuzu alone, single-handely landed blows on Kakashi. Whereas Hidan, with Kakuzu's aid, couldn't. Let me repeat that.
Kakashi has the sharingan which predict movements, This isn't a valid point.
Kakuzu, by himself, hit Kakashi, multiple times.
Hidan, with Kakuzu's help, couldn't land one blow.
And apparently you cannot either. You keep referring back to when Shikamaru and Hidan was separated from everyone as if that was the only interaction they had in that bout. I am talking about prior to where everyone was present. Shikamaru has zero taijutsu prowess, and yet, Hidan couldn't land a blow on him, ever, some great fighter there.
And I can't see why you're still persisting to bringing Shikamaru's here. I see that you're too stubborn to comprehend what I am saying, oh well.
So numbers equate to a disadvantage? Wow, re-read that chapter. It was unfair, which is why Asuma stepped out of the usual comfort zone and didn't fight his own way, hence Shikamaru's complaint. And furthermore, your initial point that Hidan drew the circle before Asuma's jutsu is invalid because the circle was already drawn and all he did was step into it.
It was a 2 vs 1 fight, Hidan was in a huge disadvantage here, you're kind of shooting yourself in the foot.
Deidara already mixed in his explosive clay with Gaara's sand when Gaara took his arm before he used the C3. So even if there was no village there, Gaara would still use his absolute defense to protect him from the C3 thus suffering the same fate.
An in regards to gaara vs deidara, your correct. The only reason he won was because he attacked the village. If the would have just been out in the middle of the dessert gaara would have won.
And let's not forget that Deidara came to this bout unprepared and he had to restrict his attacks because his mission was to capture Gaara and not kill him.
