well the thing with basilisk was that the two clans where enemies. they weren't trying to extract info from each other they wanted to kill each other so there's no way the battle would last too long.
We don't really know all the jutsu's Naruto has learned, just the ones he has shown us. You really think almost 3 years will Jiraya and all he learned was how to peep on girls?
He does need to learn some substantial moves, some water based or other wind based jutsu, or atleast show us what he knows.
To all naruto fans(which i'm one of them).
Just be realistic and admit that sasuke is way stronger.
Chimie is right i think naruto hasnt shown us everthing hes learned . mainly wheter or not his taijutsu or summoning jutsu have improved
but i have 2 admit sasuke is no joke the man nasty
people say that naruto kill a akatsuki with more level them Daidara thats not true because the one that naruto kill he waz fighting with kakashi and the other he waz weak cause he use all hes shackra to fight with the othey plus he help hes othey friend
i have a question for you guys do you thing that naruto cant win a fight without the power of the fox no no cause if you see went sasuke go in to naruto body the fox tell naruto that he cant beat nobady without hes power?????
why does everyone hate on naruto . kakazu is probally stronger than deidara . naruto killed him without demon fox help
