Akatsuki from ‘Naruto’ vs Kizuki from ‘Demon Slayer‘, if such a crossover were to ever happen, who would come out on top? Akatsuki and Kizuki are respectively, the strongest groups from their manga. While one group consists of Shinobi (ninjas) the other group is made up of blood-thirsty demons.
If these two groups were to ever fight each other, it would surely be a battle worth watching. It’s only fair if the strongest of the 2 groups are pitted against each other. So representing Akatsuki would be Obito Uchiha and the Demons would be represented by Kokushibo. Before we put them against each other, here’s a look at each one of the characters.
Obito Uchiha from Naruto
Obito Uchiha aka Tobi was a member of the Konohagakure’s Uchiha Clan. He was believed to be dead during the Third Shinobi War but was actually saved by Madara Uchiha who decided to use him to execute the Eye of Moon Plan.
Obita was born in the Uchiha Clan of the Hidden Leaf Village. He grew up alongside teammates Kakashi Hatake and Rin Nohora under the guidance of Minato Namikaze, who would later become the Fourth Hokage and Father of Uzumaki Naruto.
During a mission in the Third Shinobi War, he was crushed by a boulder while protecting Kakashi, leading others to believe he had died. However, he was saved and manipulated by Madara Uchiha, who used Obito’s grief and resentment to convince him to join his path of darkness.
Obito under the alias of Tobi, became a member of the Akatsuki. He manipulated Kaguya, the leader of Akatsuki for Madara’s Eye of Moon Plan. He played a key role in the team’s conflicts, including capturing the tailed beasts.
The Fourth Shinobi War acted as a turning point for him who harbored a deep desire for revenge against the world that he believed had forsaken him. He ultimately gave up his life protecting Kakashi, Naruto, and others. His sacrifice played a crucial role in stopping Madara from destroying the world.
Here’s a look at the special abilities of Obito Uchiha
- Sharingan (special eye ability unique to the Uchiha Clan)
- Kamui (space-time ninjutsu that creates a void)
- Mangekyou Sharingan (an enhanced Sharingan)
- Jinchuriki of the Ten-Tails
Kokushibo from Kimetsu No Yaiba aka Demon Slayer
Kokushibo, Upper Moon One, is one of the strongest antagonists in the Demon Slayer Series. He is second only to Muzan, the ‘Demon King’. Kokushibo was once a human but after consuming Muzan’s blood, he joined the Twelve Kizuki, the highest-ranking demons in the series.
5 centuries ago, Kokushibo was the younger twin brother of Yorichi Tsugikuni, the original user of the Sun Breathing Technique. Kokushibo is the only one among the Upper Moon Demons who possess exceptional swordsmanship skills.
In addition to his combat skills, he was also a former Demon Slayer Corps member. He is highly intelligent and strategic, making him a dangerous adversary.
In the climax of the series, he faces off against the protagonist, Tanjiro Kamada, and his allies, ‘The Hashiras’, who are the strongest members of the Demon Slayer Corps. His determination ultimately led to his defeat as a demon at the hands of Tanjiro and the Hashiras.
- Breathing Style – Moon Breathing
Kokushibo is the first demon to utilize Breathing Techniques. His Breathing Techniques along with his Blood Demon Art make him one of the strongest adversaries of the show.
- Dark Moon, Evening Palace
- Moon- Dragon Rin
- Mirror of Misfortune, Moonlit
- Moonbow, Half Moon
Obito Uchiha vs Kokushibo
Starting off Obito is likely to use his Sharingan on Kokushibo but it would not be as effective as he would have wanted because Kokushibo has 6 eyes. Another downside is that Naruto has no mention of the Nichrin Blade which is vital in chopping off a Demon’s Head. If Kokushibo were to use any of his superior Moon Breathing Techniques, Obito could face a tough time……but only for a moment.
Obito Uchiha was recruited by Madara for a reason. He single-handedly managed to manipulate some of the strongest Shinboi in Akatsuki. Not to mention, Kokushibo would be no match for Obito’s Rinnegan. And also the fact that the Demon could never fight him during the daytime. Obito wouldn’t even have to consider using the Ten-Tails for this battle.
Team Naruto wins this one, unfortunately, Kokushibo is no match for Obito, but what if Muzan went against Madara Uchiha? Stay tuned for more.
