    Asuma and The Third Hokage

    Asuma was already a strong jounin squad leader, proficient in fire and wind release techniques, he was able to use chakra flow to his trench knives, and was able to become one of the 12 ninja guardians.

    basically he was average powerful for a jounin.

    Since he was the son of the Third Hokage, shouldn't he have been a little stronger. For Example, look at the Sanin, who the Third trained, were very powerful and are feared, so how is that Asuma was just average??

    Re: Asuma and The Third Hokage

    I find asuma more then average. He just didn't have enough fights that showed his full power. His 12 guardian tale would be a great way to see his power. Most likely he is more powerful then we think he is.

    Yes he is. Konohamaru called asuma uncle. Konohamaru's grandfather was the 3rd hokage. So asuma has to be his son.

    But there was a anbu member that seemed pretty good at wind techs. So why not ask him? Or else any one else. Asuma was a master at wind techniques.

    Re: Asuma and The Third Hokage

    If it weren't for his sacrifice, Shikamaru would never have beaten Hidan.
    That's how the previous generation are getting used or more like thats how the good guys win their fights.

    Minato's death - Hiruzen stopped Oro
    Jiraiya's death - Naruto beat Pain
    Asuma's death - Shikamaru beat Hidan

    He's strong, he just couldn't win a match where he didn't know any of his opponents moves

    He's underestimated. I could say he's in league with Kakashi.

    But nowhere near his dad, but with time you never know.

    Rasengan isn't a element ninjutsu. He knew that you could add your nature chakra into it to make it more powerful. He tried to use his lightning chakra into it and failed. So he wanted naruto to try it. Which is why wind rasengan and normal rasengan look different.

    Asuma made his Part II(Shippuden) debut standing at the Third Hokage's grave, where he commented on how he was finally beginning to understand what the Third had taught him. Asuma confessed that he'd always been detached from Konoha, but after seeing how his father sacrificed himself for the village, he was now proud to be a member of the Sarutobi clan.

    Maybe we don't know how much
    longer we have, but it what we
    do in every moment we have
    that counts!
     

    Re: Asuma and The Third Hokage

    Sure Asuma is not average - but there are people who r stronger than him. For example look at Kakashi - He is way stronger than Asuma :D And Asma is no where near his dad at all mate

    Well you expect too much.

    Work ethic is different between the two.
    Asuma realized too late.

    Jiraiya would have beat pain had he known there were 6 paths not 3. And how did Minato's death help hiruzen?

    Re: Asuma and The Third Hokage

    I think he was a lot stronger than we ever got to see.
    Not too many Asuma fights were shown and I feel as though we never got to see his true potential.
    But then again, maybe he was just an average ninja, there's nothing wrong with that though.
    Not every great ninja will have a great ninja son/daughter.
