Re: Kakashi vs Deidara 4real
Made up my mind.
I chose Kakashi Hatake. My opening argument is going to focus on him combating Deidara's C0-4 techniques along with pointing out Kakashi's strong points.
Deidara's C1 is his most basic jutsu and in his first encounter with Deidara, Kakashi had little to no problems handling. His C2 technique is where he forms that dragon and and also creates the landmines. The problem with him creaing the was pointed out during his battle with Sasuke. The clay is mixed with chakra and can be distinquished by the Sharingan. Even if he found a way to hid them on the battle feild they could be spotted and detected by Kakashi, alowing him to avoid them or deactivate them through his lightning chakra. However we don't know if he can serge lightning the way Sasuke could, but given that lightning is Kakashi's affinity and his level of ability allowing him to create Chidori and Raikiri shows that he has enough ability to possibly do so.
Now I haven't decided how or if Kakashi has a defense against C3 so I'm going to skip to C4 and 0. Just as Sasuke was able to detect the chakra in the atmosphere after the giant Deidara exploded, Kakashi has the same ability. The Sharingan, and in Kakashi's case, his Mangekyou Sharingan has the abilities to do so as well. As far as we know Kakashi's Mangekyou only gives him his ability to use Kamui. C4 can be avoided by Kakashi if he manages to get above the range (as Deidara was) or if he manages to serge his body with lightning chakra, which would nullify the bomb and the entire jutsu itself. Now for Kakashi, deducing the weakness of Deidara's clay shouldn't be too hard with his sharingan and also through tests that he could preform, similar to how Sasuke did his. Deidara keeps at a long range however for most of his bombs (the primary being C1) he'll need to throw them at a range where the explosion could actual harm/kill Kakashi. Kakashi has midrange lightning techniques (as seen in his fight with Pain, although does he have more? we don't know however the lightning hound will take good affect for this). Also not to mention Kakashi's decoy method
Kakashi *to his clone* yeah go get your ass kicked so I can see how he does it
Clone That's all I am to you huh? we're practially releated prick lol
Kakashi uses his clones to deduce his opponents abilities and he does it masterfully to a point his opponents won't be able to tell. Only a shinobi with the Sharingan could see through Kakashi's deception really. While Kakashi's clone(s) do the dirty work for Kakashi, he anylizes his opponents fighting style, finding out possible weaknesses using the mind link between the clones and also by simply watching with his own sharingan from another location.
Now with Kamui, as far as we know it's gotten faster (enough to absorb Sasuke's Susanoo's arrow) and that can be assumed that the aim has also gotten better as well. I'm not entirly sure if Kamui can absorb the contents of C0 before teh actual energy stored up is released however the fact that it's bunched up into a small location before it explodes with incredible distance suggests that possibility. Now C0 is a suicide technique so if Deidara uses it and fails Kakashi has the automatic win. If it hits Kakashi it's still tie. However I see the possibility of C0 being absorbed by Kamui before the actual detination of the energy inside it releases. Kakashi also has his earth jutsu alowing him to escape underground, now how far down escape and how much the explosion goes underground (assuming it does level the ground area) is unknown so we can't assume accuratly the defense of the jutsu.
Genjutsu is ineffective against Deidara so that option is out for Kakashi. Kakashi's close range is heavier then Deidara's. They are both fast (equal if not I would say Kakashi>Deidara). Kakashi's vast experience over Deidara's and his natural genius gives him an advantage in the feild of battle intelligence. Kakashi having the long ranged jutsu to also counter Deidara's (not many seen, however he stated it himself but since we haven't seen specific jutsu enough to claim it that argument is fair game to be neutralized), and Kakashi's jutsu activation is nearly instant due to his incredible seal speed. Deidara, however has larger reserves of chakra then Kakashi...
This is my opener and it's not so strong but I'll go with it for now.
