Hashirama > Sage of 6 Paths
I'm going to prove to, you, out there, that Hashirama is, more powerful than the sage of 6 paths.
SO6P had only one way of combating the 10 tails, and that's by sealing it inside himself. And because the 10 tails was too much even for the sage; he had to split it into 9 cute *****es!
Hashirama on the other hand, doesn't need to seal the 10 tails, Hashirama is made up or in other words has the same make up as the 10 tails, they share the same body. Hashirama can easily control, even fuse with the 10 tails and can obtain the full Ultimate power of the 10 tails!
You see, my point is that, unlike the SO6P, Hashirama doesn't need to split to be able to handle that power, Hashirama is that power and the only one with the body of the 10 tails in the NV!
If you disagree then talk to the hand lel
