Hey Vingle Nakama!!
I haven't done a VS matchup in a little bit, with the exception of the Decision December cards, so I thought it would be cool to jump back into it.
I was racking my brain trying to figure out a good matchup. Originally I wanted to do two villains, but I decided to go with a different theme; powers. So for this versus match, I decided to focus on two awesome sand-powered badasses. This is a match between
Crocodile and Gaara
A Pirate captain who consumed the Suna Suna no Mi (the Sand Sand Fruit) which allows him to become, control, and create sand.
Immensely strong and a capable fighter, Crocodile is capable of withstanding incredible levels of torture, as seen in Impel Down.
Crocodile's hook is hollow and underneath lies another poisonous hook, with one slash being enough to kill someone. If the hook is damaged, his arm also contains a knife.
One of the 9 juubi, Gaara has the Sand Raccoon Shukaku sealed inside of him, meaning that he never sleeps and has near-bottomless levels of chakra.
Gaara has the 'ultimate defense', a sand shield that reacts automatically around him as well as a layer of chakra-hardened sand covering his entire body.
He eventually became the Kazekage and became a good guy, the youngest Kage in history and securing himself as one of the most powerful shinobi in the world.
