Kakuzu has demonstrated great raw speed, he is able to cross great distances in the blink of an eye and disappear from unfocused eyes. He was fast enough to be able to intercept Kakashi when he was attacking Hidan with his Lightning Cutter. He was able to lift both Chōji and Ino by their necks with relative ease. His raw strength was great enough to catch one of Chōji's enlarged punches with a single hand, as well as send an opponent flying with a single kick.This was further supplemented by his already adept taijutsu skills, shown when, during his fight with Kakashi he mixed his hardening and extending abilities with his taijutsu all of which afforded him great versatility against his opponents. Using Earth Release: Earth Spear Technique he was able to increase his hardness, up to the point when he was able to withstand attacks that were normally fatal.
All of Kakuzu's abilities revolved around his unique body structure, which was composed of hundreds of thick, grey tendrils woven throughout his flesh called Earth Grudge Fear, holding his body together like the stitches of a rag-doll. This allowed him to separate his body parts at will, to perform long-range physical attacks and sew up almost any injury he suffered. All these abilities made him very difficult to defeat. Because of his unique body structure, Kakuzu is a highly enduring man, his threads could even compact together to form a giant octopus-like form around his body, used for long range battle.
As a member of the Hyūga clan, Hinata specialises in close-range unarmed combat. She fights with the signature combat style of her clan: the Gentle Fist, which takes advantage of the Byakugan's ability to see opponent's chakra pathway system and their unique ability to expel chakra from any point on their body. It allows her to surgically inject chakra into an opponent's chakra network to cause severe internal trauma with minimal external force. During the timeskip, Hinata improved her taijutsu skills immensely, and displays a larger variety of her clan's techniques. She can skillfully use the Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm, which creates a huge wave of chakra that targets the opponent from a distance, yet still strikes vital points. Hinata learned the Eight Trigrams Thirty-Two Palms, a minor version of one of the Hyūga clan's most powerful techniques: the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms.
Hinata also continued to develop her natural flexibility. This ultimately developed the Protection of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, a technique that can take advantage of her great flexibility and coordination to both attack and defend at the same time. Hinata has also developed her own original arsenal, including the Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists, which she could use to drain the chakra from her opponents chakra network with a single touch. Hinata can combine this technique with the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms to make it more deadly.
Guren is a very powerful kunoichi, her skill with the Crystal Release is so great she was chosen by Orochimaru to be Yūkimaru's bodyguard and could fight the Three-Tails for a significant amount of time and even defeat it temporarily. In times of desperation, Guren is also able to convert a small portion of her life energy to access extra chakra reserves to allow her to continue fighting at full strength for a short period of time. Guren's taijutsu skills are also rather high as she was able to fight on even grounds with an expert like Kakashi, dodge multiple Rasengan attacks from Naruto, and fight Lee and Tenten simultaneously. She is talented at noticing weaknesses in her opponent and using diversions, shown in how she kept Kakashi, Kiba, and Shino busy fighting her clones while she took Hinata hostage. By using her Crystal Release, Guren can summon and freely manipulate her crystal constructs in a number of ways. However, the deadliest aspect of her Crystal Release is that it crystallises the opponents and physical matter at a molecular level, and causing them to shatter into crystalline dust as a result. It is stated by Kabuto and Kakashi that she can crystallise the moisture in the air, therefore giving her an infinite source of weapons. The density of this power also appears to be very high as even the Wood Release was unable to penetrate it.
Hiruko had a long mechanical, scorpion-like tail (an allusion to Sasori's name meaning "scorpion"), extending from the mouth of what appeared to be a demon mask on its back. Chiyo said this mask was a recent addition by Sasori to act as an extra defence to a weak point in the puppet. The tail worked as Hiruko's main offensive weapon and was laced with Sasori's speciality poison. The tail could also be used defensively by spinning around Hiruko's body at a rapid speed. Hiruko's left arm was also rigged with a projectile launcher capable of firing poisoned shrapnel and needles, and its mouth could also be used to serve a similar function of firing poisoned needles. In the anime, Sasori was also capable of performing the Sand Clone technique through Hiruko.
Sasori's favourite human puppet was the Third Kazekage, which retained its Magnet Release, which in turn grants Sasori access to the Iron Sand techniques. When mixed with Sasori's poison, the Iron Sand was given a more lethal edge. The Iron Sand could also be used to fill up the joints of other puppets, thus immobilising them. Due to the Iron Sand being derived from the Third's ability to convert chakra to magnetism, this grants Sasori immunity from metallic weapons. The Third's puppet's right arm held several poisoned blades, while the left arm could open up to reveal several summoning seals that summoned thousands of similar arms to attack the target. These arms were capable of crushing an opponent, emitting poisonous gas clouds, and releasing wires that dragged the opponent into the gas cloud. If these arms were cut off, a small buzz-saw took their place.
In place of his intestines was a thick cable coiled around a pole, allowing him to use it as a stinger and retract it if necessary. Attached to his back was a scroll holder, containing four scrolls that stored extra armament. The first scroll allowed him to expel powerful streams of fire, and the second scroll was used to store numerous puppets for the Red Secret Technique: Performance of a Hundred Puppets. Sasori also has a pair of poles attached to the back of his hips, each equipped with five large blades that could spin like a propeller, granting him both an equipage for greater speed and a monstrous close combat weapon. Sasori also had pipes on each of his palms that could spew out intense fire, hot enough to melt rock, or, in the anime, powerful water jets with such pressure that they were capable of cutting through rock. Being a fully-armed puppet himself, Sasori did not suffer the weakness of being vulnerable to close-range combat that other puppeteers suffer.
This is a close call, Kidomaru is a great tactician and marksman. In a limited amount of time he was able to figure out Neji's weakness and managed to strike his blind spot each and every time. He'll try and overwhelm Spiderman with large barrages of chakra fused kunai, along with webs and his summoning contract with that large spider that releases even more smaller spiders that are about the size of basketballs.
Kidomaru would most likely realize that Spiderman has some type of extra sense and expose it as he did with Neji. Plus, if Spiderman were to close the gap, he is not without a defense. His body secretes a hardened substance that is stronger than steel. Neji was able to break it because of his Gentle Fist fighting style.
What makes this battle difficult to call is that both characters can change the terrain on a mass scale. Regardless if water weighs sand down, that's not going to be the main factor. Gaara could lure Kisame more inland and deal with matters there, plus we've seen Kisame create tidal waves away from large bodies of water. So it wouldn't be as if he is left powerless. What I feel might be a factor is that Gaara is a long ranged fighter and Kisame is a close combat type. I think it would all depend in the very beginning of the match, which way the rest of it goes.
Could Gaara keep him away or could Kisame close the gap? hmm
As one of Orochimaru's closest and most powerful warriors, Tayuya was branded with a cursed seal. Tayuya was a strong kunoichi. She claimed to be the second strongest member of the Sound Four, subsequent only to Sakon. She was also very intelligent, and could think of excellent strategies, though not quite parallel with those of Shikamaru. When in Level 2 Cursed Seal form, she gained an immense boost in strength, stamina and endurance. Tayuya was the only member of the Sound Four to use sound as her primary fighting style, in the form of her Demonic Flute. One such purpose was controlling her Doki: three massive, ogre-like creatures that can absorb an enemy's physical energy through spectral worms spawned by the creatures. Another one of her abilities was performing sound-based genjutsu, such as Demonic Flute: Phantom Sound Chains.
Kurenai is considered one of Konoha's elite Jōnin, she has shown some taijutsu skill, being able to react fast enough to defend herself from Itachi Uchiha's attacks. While the full extent of Kurenai's abilities are predominantly unknown, her skill with genjutsu is so vast that it is said to rival even those of Itachi Uchiha. Most of her techniques focus around flora; primarily using large trees to bind opponents as well as flower petals for various reasons. She is also able to simultaneously affect multiple opponents with her techniques. Itachi, a genjutsu master himself, has also praised her skills. Furthermore, she could revert the effects of genjutsu to the caster.
