Kimimaro's bones were the ultimate defence versus Rock Lee's Iron fist.
They would not defend against Gentle fist. And the gentle fist can:
1, seal off chakra: this includes bloodline limits, which consume chakra. Kimi would not be able to use his bone powers.
2, completely bypass all physical defences. This includes bones: Neji routiely strikes people in the chest, and his attacks go through their ribcage: a physical defence.
One thing many people forget in the Lee vs Kimi fight was that.
1, Rock Lee was badly hurt and fighting at 20% strength (he could open 1 gate vs his normal 5 as our point of reference)
2, Kimi was suicidal and was fighting at no limit. He would not display his level of power if he was not going to die anyway: he was using suicidal amounts of chakra, as he knew he was about to die. Post Edited:2008-04-19 01:36:03 Post Edited:2008-04-19 01:36:23 Post Edited:2008-04-19 01:36:39
