Ryu (Shaman) vs Kabuto




Suggested by iKnowledge Ryu returns but Kabuto is an even more difficult match than Kisame. Kabuto’s speed was enough to keep up with both Itachi and Sasuke at the same time. There’s no way Ryu’s going to be hitting this guy and Kabuto’s regeneration will also come in handy here. Kabuto’s final form was pretty crazy that’s for sure. Ryu would likely have the edge here in any circumstance outside of the final arc where Kabuto’s power hit a whole new level. At that point he just becomes too fast. Kabuto wins.

Ryu (Shaman) vs Kisame




Suggested by iKnowledge Ryu is a pretty strong Shaman fighter. While he couldn’t keep up with the rest of the main cast so it’s easy to forget about him, his raw stats were still quite impressive. I don’t believe he would be able to match up with Kisame’s speed though. Ryu’s raw power may actually be stronger at the end of the day but he will really have his hands full against Kisame here. Kisame even has his true form which further amps up his physical stats. Kisame wins.
