Who else was and maybe still is a huge Rock Lee fan years ago when they discovered the anime for the first time?
Anyone else who started doing body weight exercises as a kid because of him?

Rock Lee and Gai have the eternal curse of being great characters in an otherwise overwhelming mostly shit manga. Apart from them two the only two other characters I liked where Tobirama and that one Lightning nigger who fought like 10,000 people on his own.

I think there are a surprising amount of good characters in Naruto

But in Naruto, it seems as though the quality of a character is inversely proportionate to how important they are to the plot, with Killer Bee and Shikamaru being sort-of exceptions

It's a sign of a poor writer when they introduce cool characters, give them just enough of a backstory and key moments to make people a little interested and then forget about them because HERP DERP NARUTO IS THE CHOSEN ONE. I actually really liked Shikamaru but he'd been irrelevant for so long that I forgot about him.
>>
>>135307892
It didn't help that he hyped everyone up to be strong while making Naruto play the underdog even though he had a tailed beast, a legendary teacher, and was the second coming of Jesus all in one.

Who's worse with that? Toriyama or Kishimoto?
>>
>>135308123
Kishi no doubt
>>
>>135308123
It's more frustrating when Kishimoto does it because in Dragonball there was basically a point where everyone knew Goku > Vegeta > the rest of the universe except the big bad at the time so any new character doesn't have any impact, but with Kishimoto he lures you in by making you think this new person might be some cool shit and do something relevant and shows just enough of their power to make you think that they might be important, all for it to end up as "HEY GUYS NARUTO AND SASUKE ARE GODS NOW, REMEMBER, YOU LIKE THOSE GUYS AND NO ONE ELSE RIGHT?"

I would probably watch a whole 24 episode anime just about Kakashi's dad, a character who is meant to be a kage level ninja but who gets less than a chapter worth of time in the manga.

I'm not sure if it's fair to keep judging Naruto from an arc, the second (third?) arc of a 15-year old manga series.

Even the ZABUZA arc portrayed a radically different Ninja world (much more mercenary) from the Chunin arc.

to be fair, Pt. 1 Naruto did say he was going to become the strongest Hokage of all time; and since the Leaf almost always has the strongest Kage, that means becoming the strongest Kage who ever lived. You can complain about his absurdly high power level all you like, but thats only a fulfilment of a characters objective stated very early on in the series.
True, its kind of bullshit the series started off saying "hard work trumps genius!" and ended up saying "heritage trumps hard work AND genius!", but I'd like to think for the rest of the ninja world, "hard work trumps genius!" is still true. Gai was the hardest working motherfucker the world had ever seen, and he enjoyed a reputation comparable or even greater to Kakahi's. Bee and the Raikage both trained hard for their power, and as far as we knw they don't com from special bloodlines. Same goes for the other Kages, most of whom did not come from great bloodlines but were powerful in their own right; and don't even mention Uchiha Madara defeating them, it took the goddamn return of the Ninja Worlds version of God to put him down. They put up a good enough fight for a group of ordinary ninja's who, whilst powerful, have only a finite amount of power
>>
>>135307566
>Rock Lee
>Might Gai
>Shikamaru
>Neji
>Hinata (sometimes, when she actually wanted to try and do something and not just be Waifu)
>Shino

All surprisingly good and depthful characters that were just given terrible writing in the story for no better reason than they are not; Naruto, sasuke, Kakashi. So the best they could of ever hoped for was that brief time in the limelight.

Feel like Naruto is so Filler Heavy to try and give them more time, bt naruto filler arcs are fking terrible so it doesnt help. kinda like Bleach.
>>
another counterpoint to the "hard work don't mean SHIT in the Naruto universe no more!" guys; look at the Akatsuki. A bunch of criminals who, with the exception of Itachi and Nagato, came from "lolwhere" backgrounds with "lolwho" parents. Yet they were all able to hold their own against incredibly powerful ninja (some of who had bloodline hax) with incredibly powerful beasts. That has to count for something, right?
>>
The akatsuki would have failed from the get-go if the villages hadn't been retarded and trained the jinchurikis to use their tailed beasts, rather than shun them and make them resent the place they were born in. Given how powerful Killer Bee and Naruto were after taming their tailed beasts, one would think the akatsuki would have had a bit more trouble taking them.
>>
>>135312341
>or even greater to Kakahi's

Haha no.
>>
>>135312803
people in the ninja world knew and feared guy; okay, whether his reputation was greater than Kakashi's is up for debate, but he was indisputably infamous and well regarded
>>
>>135312743
Having good genetics in the real world has the same affect. A 6'5" 230lb Black guy with the build of a Roman God is going to have an easier time in life than a guy who will never see 5'10".

Training is just icing on the cake.
>>
>>135312904
Yes, he was very well regarded by the end, and will certainly be named among the heroes of the great ninja war.

But Kakashi not only did more during the war, but was also the teacher of Sasuke and Naruto and a Hokage.

Gai will never catch up.

Gaara was talented. He had complete mastery of his sand and came up with inventive ways in which it could double as offense and defense.

One of the most disappointing things about Naruto. Ask yourself what purpose did the any area outside of Konoha serve? He spent so much time building the other nations, their symbols, the chuunin exam that brought them all together, creating all these different fighting styles, only to throw it all away in favor of Sharingan and Kyuubi.

When Shikamaru won the chuunin exam it was fucking awesome, ~200 chapters later (post Sasuke retrieval essentially), him, like almost every other character without a sharingan is worthless.

The whole Sharingan being a weaker cousin of the Byakugan? Why wasn't that ever explained? Why isn't the Hyuga clan staging a coup like the Sharingan?

So much potential wasted. For what reason did he feel the need to introduce a random big bad at the end of the manga when he had so many characters that he had wasted over the last 15 years.
>>
>>135318456
>The whole Sharingan being a weaker cousin of the Byakugan?
This was never the case. Kakashi states that it is said that the Sharingan descended of the Byakugan and we now know that what actually happened is that the Sharingan and Byakugan descended from the same clan - the Ootsutsuki - but the Sharingan appeared later due to it being a degraded Rinnegan.

The Sharingan was never weaker than the Byakugan: the Byakugan could just see deeper and farther than the Sharingan, but couldn't copy jutsu or cast genjutsu

>When Shikamaru won the chuunin exam it was fucking awesome,

>The whole Sharingan being a weaker cousin of the Byakugan?

Sharingan was always stronger, the byakygan was only said to have better insight powers.
