and even since the beginning of the manga, teamwork had an emphasis. and then recently with itachi, or was it nagato i forget now, telling naruto to not take all the responsibility on by himself and to share it with his friends and to not end up like the secluded friendless matobito. a group surpassing the "one" has been established since forever.
its only inconsistent in your mind because you cant accept madara or the 10 tails being beaten as of now. im not encessarily defending the manga, but if you are going to be upset, be upset at the correct things at least.
I never said fiction wasn't for fun, but logic is not in opposition to fun. Impossible is fine, as long as it is consistently within the rules of it's own universe. For example, Dragonball Z. It is impossible for Vegeta's power level to have been as high as it was against frieza. you can track the math of what his power level was after each time he died. it literally started increasing by twenty and thirty fold, or more, where as, the first time, it didn't even increase by 50%. There is no logic there. it's inconsistant, and therefore unacceptable. I'm ok with power creep, on a small scale, and IF it gets explained well. Random power creep irritates me.
yes, teamwork is important, but on the 'effectiveness' scale, 5 kage together, are a more potent force than this alliance. At this point, the alliance is tired. It's like assembling 1000 elephants, which seems powerful at first, to fight the Colossus at Rhodes. The Colossus cannot be beaten by elephants, regardless of numbers. I'm not a madara fanboy, I don't even like him, but I acknowledge his power. As you yourself said, he has unlimited chakra. Not only that, he can use susano'o indefinately because of that, and he also cannot be killed.
as for breaking his jutsu, as far as we know, it was a "one and done" deal, not a currently ongoing jutsu. The only way I can think of for them to do that, would be to force madara to use some jutsu himself, much like itachi did against kabuto, but he could only do that because of sharingan. Besides, Genjutsu wont work on madara.
I'm not referring to the idea of a group beating an individual as being in consistant. I'm referring to power scale. an 1000 poodles no matter how hard they try, can never kill captain america. I don't like it, but that's basically the power scale at this point.
Honestly? Madara can create a forest of UNLIMITED size, or summon another meteor (because it wont kill obito), or use susano'o to kill everything in front of him with the sword, etc. I don't see any way for them to beat him. Susano'o into giant meteor = gg.
