I'm a huge Naruto fan but after watching Fairy Tail, I came to this conclusion. I'm gonna give plenty of reasons why this is actually true.
- Magic > Chakra in terms of power, and this is why.
Zetsu explained the difference in power between Ninjutsu-based elements and natural elements:
Ninjutsu based elements are basically artificial inferior rip-off of natural elements with limitations in all aspects. This is why Senjutsu is stronger and gives 10x multiplier.
Whereas in Fairy Tail, magic elements are a product of nature:
Using that as comparative basis, we get the following:
Naruto who was burned from an artificial lava that does not have temperature of a real lava, and Team 7 scared of falling into lava:
Would be melted when facing powerful fire users like Natsu and Igneel:
Naruto and Sasuke get incased up by a generic ice:
Would be frozen right to the bone when facing powerful ice users like Gray and Invel:
I could go on forever, but the premise is clear.
- Fairy Tail speed >>> Naruto speed.
Zetsu stated that natural lightning is physically impossible to dodge, which is confirmed by Itachi struggling to react to it and ultimately could not dodge it. Itachi is fairly a speedster in Naruto.
BOS Gajeel evaded Laxus's lightning (which has natural properties to it), and Gajeel is not a speedster in Fairy Tail:
- Fairy Tail physicals >>> Naruto physicals.
Sakura and Tsunade are regarded as physical monsters in Naruto, and they're like building busters at most.
But we have Gildarts smashing up mountains with a punch and Gildarts is not even the highest level of strength in Fairy Tail:
- Fairy Tail hax >>> Naruto hax.
-Larcade who can kill others by making them hungry, sleepy or feeling pleasure.
-Zeref who can stop and rewind time.
-Brandish who can shrink anything.
