    Sasuke was running his chidori against the wall to give it power, raikiri was just activated in the hand. Chidori appears white, Raikiri is blue (looks more like chakra). Raikiri uses more chakra because it's a stronger version of chidori. Basically Raikiri is/was chidori, and since no-one else used the jutsu but Kakashi, Chidori no longer existed. When he taught the jutsu to Sasuke, it wasn't as strong as his s-rank raikiri, so it was called chidori again (the a-rank jutsu). They are the same, but not technically the same, as Odama Rasengan is not Rasengan. (bad analogy, I cant think of another one)

    When in doubt, just look at the databooks that have been usefully necroed by adonai at least 4 times. It differentiates the two by saying "when Kakashi uses it, Chidori is known as Raikiri".

    ^ I didn't necro it the last time (in the general info thread), that was kaom.


    On topic: I would think that the fact that raikiri is described as an assassination jutsu would be a much bigger problem, Kishimoto did try to explain it away by saying that the sharingan allowed it to work, but if you had the sharingan in the first place there's probably lots of other simpler and easier ways to kill someone.

    It's Guilty Gear. Awesome game...

    On topic, you did come up with a good analogy, me thinks. Also, I think Kakashi's raikiri is quieter? I don't recall it ever making too much noise, whereas the chidori announces your precense.

    Chidori was his original jutsu before he got sharingan. Raikiri is an easy guaranteed kill, not much can be simpler than that.

    I dont think the format of the manga allows Kishimoto to usefully utilize every aspect of the sharingan, because really, it is impossible to loss with it. Kakashi should have seen that Kakuzu was going to kick him, he should have known Kakuzu wasn't dead. Kakashi makes me wonder sometimes though. Kakashi can open the "inner eight gates", but he hasn't done so in a battle. His genjutsu is at maximum, but he never uses it. But Kakashi is far from finished.


    *^thanks.

    well he could have cut lightning with raikiri if he aimed at the middle of a lightning attack and only nullifies the lightning attack for a second and i will look like he cuted it =3

    Edit: if someone already said something like this so did i only read page 1

    IMO...rakiri is just another nickname for chidori after he cut lightning...Its probably the same..like calling spit saliva and all that...(yes spit is technically saliva so any smart remarks will get u nowhere)... Anyway i dont see y he doesnt use his mangekyou sharingan to finish hidan off first.. Get rid of the one that cant be killed then move on to the not so easy kill

    if kakishi cut the lightning in two wouldn that jus leave twice the amount of lightning to dogde? hit the people behind him? you know like how a actual real folded katana CAN cut bullets, but thats just twice the amount of holes you get. Negating the attack or dodging is better.

    With the latest chapter though i feel that their gonna show that kakishi's water jutsu can beat a fire jutsu or sumthing. Because if kakishi used a fire jutsu he may have to remove his mask :O and that isn't allowed.

    I agree with the using the mangekyou to just pop off hidan's head into another dimension. But i'm way off topic now.
