Rasen-shuriken is a way more juiced up version of the rasengan. Naruto could totally kick Sasuke's butt now.

I beg to differ. Ladies and gentleman, we must keep in mind that we are comparing the techniques themselves rather than the shinobi who use them. In doing that, is is quite clear that the chidori is the superior of the two techniques.

=====================
DRAINS TOO MUCH CHAKRA |
=====================

The rasen-shuriken requires a great deal of chakra to use. We must keep in mind that even the current Naruto (utilizing the kyuubi's chakra as well as the full power of sage mode) can only successfully pull off this technique twice and that regardless of how it is used, it deals a great deal of cellular damage to Naruto's body. This is all IN SPITE of Naruto's healing factor and enormous chakra reserves. Surely using this technique would kill just about any other shinobi in the process.

On the other hand: The Chidori doesn't drain up anywhere near as much chakra. Even Kakashi (whose chakra is pretty average for a jounin shinobi) can use this technique up to four times in a day. Merely using this technique even once wouldn't kill an average shinobi using it.

Looking at it from this perspective, it's similar to comparing a katana to a zanbato. Although the zanbato is much bigger, it's much slower when used in combat due to the amount of strength it takes to use as well as its sheer size. Because of this, the average individual who wields it would be placing themselves at a vast disadvantage for combat in general. The same applies to a comparison between the chidori and the rasenshuriken. Naruto is an exceptional shinobi when it comes to having successfully pulled of this technique, but the average shinobi would lose their limbs or die from chakra exhaustion simply in trying to use it. On the other hand, one would be more capable of using the chidori without dying from chakra exhaustion. Even Kakashi as a 10 year old was able to use this technique without need for large chakra reserves.

I'll leave it at that for now.

Wind element beats lightning element. Rasen-shuriken has wind element and chidori has lightning element. I've seen the chidori and its not that special and ive seen rasen-shuriken against kakuzu and pein and it would blow any technique away.

I am sorry that I was unable to respond. I had difficulty getting at a computer. Please, forgive me.

But we have to remember that air>lightning. I'd interpret the resolution to mean that in a head-on battle, Rasenshuriken>Chidori. Obviously, it is.

"we must keep in mind that we are comparing the techniques themselves rather than the shinobi who use them"

This is the most important point of the debate. Harboring the kyuubi makes a lot of moves possible for naruto and naruto alone.
