I dunno about the element thing making a big difference in how stuff happens in the naruto world, like if the blue, crackling stuff on kakishi's hand called "lightning blade" doesn't seem like electricity in the first place, what does?
Like nothing really changed much, like when asuma called his knives "chakra blades" technically thats what they are, chakra knives that absorb different chakra types to amplify the effect of the knife.
Chidori(lightning) beats gaara's sand everytime sasuke used it.
And as far as bloodlines go wouldn't a mixed jutsu be sumthing like this?
ex: mokuton is earth and water, earth is weak against lightning, water is somewhat neutral.(i'd say it loses to lightning) So when sasuke used weird chidori nagashi thingy on yamato his wood got destroyed cause its mainly weak against the electricty?
when sasuke fought haku didn't haku say something liek "a fire of this level can't melt my ice"
So fire could work? but sasuke wasn't strong enough.
I don't think i'd consider bloodline limits really neautral, or "without weaknesses" like, If water beats fire, and adding wind to fire helps it, (common stuff)
You'd think that wood loses to fire alot, ice gets beat by fire alot. And honestly, i can't say anything else considering no other element things have been shown. But i think that IF there are combinations of other elements, They will probably have similar weaknesses.
so in the short form, i agree with talamare. Weakness comes into play but power still matters alot in the outcome of fire vs water, lightning vs earth,etc.
EDIT: Blah too long
