Ok when these two jutsus were used against each other we already know that the chidori won. However at that time the rasengan wasnt complete. If it was do any of you think it would defeat the chidori?

When the two were used against each other, the Rasengan actually won? Naruto made only a small hole in that big water tank or whatever while Sasuke made a big one, but later when Sasuke looked at the back of that water tank, it was completely blasted open.

I think the complete rasengan and chidori are equal in their effect on the opponent. but when they are used to each other, rasengan wins. because lightning's weakness is wind. chidori is used with lightning while rasengan is used with wind. :]

Ok but what about the fact that in shippuden Sasuke is able to create not only a full body chidori but also is able to channel the chidori's energy through his sword. Thats also not taking into account the fact the naruto completes the rasengan.

It's very hard to compare both jutsus but if you want to break down it would be something like this. The rasengan is concentrated moving at very high speeds and circulating in the palm of the user while the chidori high concentrated amount of electricity around the user's hand. The chidori can pierce through nearly everything, but the rasengan can tear nearly anything apart. Now to make something clear; the chidori never really proved to be better then the rasengan because it was Naruto who chose to aim it at Sasuke's forehead protector proving that he could indeed put a scratch on it [ because Sasuke had said prior to the fight that Naruto would not be able to complete such a feat ].

If they were to collide, I'm not sure what would happen but I think something like a huge explosion would have taken place or the chidori would have been pushed aside or ripped apart. The rasengan collides, the high speed swirling chakra pushes aside the electrical current and reaches the hand, and once it reaches it tears it up completely and if left with no hand, the user can't really keep using the chidori. This is unless chidori doesn't pierce right through the rasengan.

sounds more like your talking about rasen shuriken vs chidori...in which case rasen shuriken owns because of winds being stronger then lightning in relation...also because it uses the perfect shape manipulation...a plain rasengan i think would lose against chidori...because chidori combines both chakra shape manipulation and nature manipulation while rasengan only uses shape manipulation

Rasengan so far, chidori seems incomplete.

Actually, the Rasengan is technically more powerful. There doesn't seem to be any "set" limitation to use its, but basing simply on the user's chakra capacity. Once you form your chakra and the sphere, that's it. The Rasengan will end up sustaining itself until the user makes it otherwise or the sphere around the chakra is broken. The Rasengan doesn't have piercing power like the Chidori, but its grinding effect can just as easily kill an opponent or at least cripple them in some way regardless of where it impacts. And considering how it would pretty much turn any muscles, bones and innards into paste where it hits means the chances of recovering from such a hit would be slim to none unless you got some special ability like Kabuto (who even he still ended up knocked out anyway). And then follow it up the resulting explosion because of the sphere being broken and releasing all that contained chakra and you got even more widespread damage.

And THAT is only the incompleted Rasengan. Even a 50% Rasenshuriken was several steps above in every way to the incomplete Rasengan.


The Chidori is just Kakashi's (failed) attempt to instill his Raiton element into it to complete it. It requires the user to constantly pump chakra into it to keep its power up since, with the electricity flying every which way, chakra is constantly being expelled and wasted. Hence why it has such a low number of uses available to Kakashi and Sasuke. While the Chidori does have a much better and faster piercing power, it would require precision hitting if you wish to take down your opponent quickly; hence, usually the heart of the head. But aquiring such an accurate blow would require the user to either take the opponent completely by surprise (not likely given its light and sound) or completely immobilizing them (like Kakashi did with Zabuza). Otherwise, as Itachi showed, one could easily dodge it, deflect it, etc. And, as shown, unless you have the Sharingan, you'll simply end up with tunnel vision from the running speed and leave yourself completely helpless against possible counterattacks if/when you end up missing or the opponent deflects it.

Nicely put, in truth the destructive power of the rasengan even without the wind chakra was stronger then the chidori, it's just Naruto desired not to kill Sasuke so in theory he weakened it durning the exchange if he didn't he would have over powered it and possibly killed Sasuke, also the rasengan is more of an area of effect attack and not a pin point attack like the chidori so the Rasengan deals area damage to the person and not direct damage hence you only need to make contact to severly hurt someone with the rasengan where the Chidori needs to attack vital organs to do the same thing.

imo the Rasengan is better

Yeah and both have the weakness of being a point-blank attack which can easily be dodged unless an opponent is immobilized too like, as said, Kakashi with Zabuza or as Naruto did with Kabuto with his first successful strike. Otherwise taking them by surprise as Naruto did with Kakuzu with the Rasenshuriken or as he did with Pain in the final bout of their battle.

Also, if someone is strong enough physically and/or with chakra, then even the Chidori may not be effective like we see with Sasuke vs. the Raikage when he was barely able to break the surface of his skin thanks to the Raikage's body being pumped up with Raiton chakra just like the Chidori is, thus offering extra resistance between 2 similar elements, so the Chidori is also restricted to that 1 blow and if it fails than, similar to if the opponent dodges and the user doesn't have the Sharingan, that would also leave the user wide open for a counterattack. However, the Rasengan is constantly grinding away at whatever it hits, so it's capable of wearing down armor/chakra defenses BEFORE dealing extra damage with an explosion; Wind chakra merely amplifying that ability thousands of times higher on a molecular level.
