Re: Akatsuki rankings
1-2. - Pain/Madara.
- Madara's abilities make him extremely difficult to kill and he should be the most haxxed person right now but he keeps suggesting that there's something holding him back. He's wounded in some way from his fight with the 1st but we can't say for sure what that is.
- Nagato/Pain's feat are incredible. His Rinnegan power against Konoha were extremely powerful.
- Itachi is extremely talented in his use of the MS. He'd speedblitz alot of characters if they battled him. Fast with handseals and uses Genjutsu better then anyone in the manga.
- Orochimaru is just plain hard to kill. He regenerates extremely quick and his durability is way up there. Because of his modifications to his body, conventional killing methods against him are ineffective most of the time. Excellent in Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, Taijutsu and snake summons. All round powerful ninja.
- Kisame with his Samehada are a deadly combo. Able to absorb chakra attacks with his sword and has the largest chakra reserves after Naruto, he can make a lake out of nothing. Kisame has immense strength and was able to take out the 4th tailed host who could use Lava release technique.
- Sasori is a prodigy puppeteer who could wield 100 puppets like no other. The only one to make humanoid puppets, his Kazekage puppet with Iron Sand was a force to be reckoned with. Also used deadly poison, booby traps and able to change from puppet heart to another.
- Kakuza is able to utilize the 5 elemental attacks all at once and has great defense in Iron Skin. Having 5 hearts makes him difficult to kill and his 100 yrs of experience makes him knowledgeable in combat strategies. Also has a modified body that extend tentacles which can dislodge his hands like missiles.
- Deidara use of clay made him a talented artist. Able to shape homing birds out of clay and even make microscopic bombs that attacked within the opponent. He is able to create destructive attacks that covered a wide range.
- Zetsu has one of those abilities that seem haxxed but we've yet to see it in full effect to properly judge him. He can merge with objects and should be able to surprise attack kinda like Robin in OP uses her hands. Was able to surprise a group of powerful ninjas in the Kage meeting with one of his halfs alone but they all did manage to escape easily. He will probably move up in power ranks.
- Konan like Zetsu has a strong ability but we are yet to see it's full extent. She is pretty much the logia of the Narutoverse and can divide herself into thousands of pieces making her difficult to hit unless you know her weakness like her former sensei, Jiraiya. I expect to see her more and showcase her beautiful use of origami in battle.
- Hidan is a one trick pony. Slowest members and most likely dumbest as well. Whilst his immortality is amazing, he doesnt have much of a backup plan or change of fighting style when he gets in trouble. He is most powerful when battling against an opponents for the first time as his method of killing is unusual.
