Re: Other then Naruto, who in Konoha can actually beat Sasuke 1vs1????
Kakashi is not a given. I'd say they're as smart as each other but no faster then Sasuke. I'd like to say that but until Kakashi can work Kamui into his fighting strategy and not use it as a last resort, then he isn't going to be on the higher power tiers like Sasuke.

Hinata did horrible. She did worse then Choji. Although her courage was commendable he nowhere near Sasuke's level.
I don't doubt that.

If he successful I guess, he'd still end up dying.

No need with the names. I don't call Naruto by the name of Naruto***(His one of my fav characters but you know what I mean)

Well lightning>earth and in general lighting>water=wood.
His been shown to use it through his blade, as an external shield, able to extend in great length to cut and expand it in several outward directions on impact.
Well manga proof has shown Sasuke to able to both extinguish Amaterasu and manipulate it's shape in a short amount of time. The point I made was the quick progress of being able to do so, reflects on his intelligence. W/e Itachi could or couldn't do I guess we won't ever know.
Konoha was at war during that time so they wouldn't promoted those with that type of potential early. Put Sasuke or many of Konoha 12 and they would've graduated alot earlier as well. Different times.
And like I said, Kakashi doesn't take the Kamui risk unless it's for defensive risk or he has no other choice. What's not to say he won't be killed then. Sasuke's black cloaked Susanoo covers all of Sasuke.
As long as we keep it civilized then it should be fine, unlike that moneyezzz fellow

Well I say it now. Current ninjas :p
