    Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    Now I'm not saying that Kiba can take high teir ninja, but I do believe that he is easily jounin level and is ridiculously underrated. Most of you think Kiba = king of the fodder, and that he only spams gatsuuga. But I want to show you he is probably one of the most useful ninja in all of Konoha. And he places 3rd in the K11 (behind Neji and Lee)

    1. Speed. Kiba has a 4.5 in speed in the databook and since the beginning he has always bragged about it. Although he hasn't had an opportunity to show it off since part 1 he is still the fastest of the K11 (besides Lee). I know using his fight vs genin Naruto is bad example because Naruto was terrible, but it properly shows off his speed.


    2. His nose. Let me make one thing clear first. Kiba is hands down THE BEST TRACKER IN KONOHA. His nose is better than a dogs and 1000 times better than an average humans. This means that, while in a fight, he knows precisely where his enemy is AT ALL TIMES. Which makes things like the replacement technique useless because he can identify people by smell. His range with his nose is literally MILES, he smelled the sand siblings approaching like 30 mins before they showed up


    3. Gatsuuga/Garouga. Gatsuuga is his signature move and while portrayed as a spam move, it is nevertheless way more powerful than a regular hit. Garouga is a different story. This move is incredibly powerful. People seem to forget that he has this move for some reason. This move is difficult to dodge, he managed to land a direct hit on Sakon and Ukon who have an almost 360 degree field of vision. And this move would have KILLED ALMOST ANYBODY besides these two. Not even Hidan or Tsunade can survive being cut into two pieces down the middle. And as you can see in the top panels of the pic even if you dodge it by a foot the vacuum it creates will tear your skin off.


    4. Akamaru. Just take everything good I've said about him and multiply it times 2. Akamarus abilities while transformed are just as good as Kiba's

    5. He is not stupid. There is a big difference between hot headed and stupid. He has actually shown very quick thinking during fights. During his fight with Sakon and Ukon, when Ukon merged with his body, He managed to find a weakness within 5 seconds of knowing what his ability is. Then he had the resolve to instantly stab himself, something that Ukon said nobody has tried before.



    Chouji fought the weakest member of the sound four, and pretty much died. Same with Neji, he fought the second best and also pretty much died. Sakon and Ukon were said to be the strongest out of all of them. And Kiba managed to hold his own and escape with a perfect on the spot plan. The second after he got Ukon out of his body he threw a kunai in order to shroud his vision, threw smoke bombs, grab Akamaru, set up a trap, and escape into the river all within a few seconds.





    I hope I changed your opinion about him and I hope you agree that he is jounin level and the best tracker in Konoha (yes, even better than Yamato). Also, like I said above I think he is 3rd in K11.

    I don't know what happened to kiba it looked like he had more move sets in part 1. And in part 2 his dog just started pissing all over the place and fang over fang being the only thing he done. Such a shame.

    He is fodder. He's pretty much a sensory ninja now. He got beat by Part 1 Naruto.

    Yeah but it's the same with the rest of the k11 so I don't really mind

    I agree with Neji and Lee but I think Kiba can take Choji and Shino. He is too fast for Choji and if He uses the super expansion he would drill a hole through him with Garouga. And I don't really see Shino's bugs touching him if he is just spamming Gatsuuga. I say 50/50 for both

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    Kiba use to be a good sensory and offensive shinobi



    But kishi just didn't care about konoha 11 any more and stopped given them screen time.

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    That was a nice read +rep I thought it was weird how Kiba was the one to fight Sakon/Ukon (who Orochimaru thought was the strongest) but I'm not complaining. IIRC he lost anyways but it was a good fight. But I disagree with him on being the top 3 over all

    Some of these replies...

    Thankyou - i've been wanting to make a thread like this but always figured it would fall on deaf ears. All your points were great, and I like that you realise the difference between passionate and stupidity.

    Sasuke is the king of arrogance and he has a massive fanbase, he basically walks in somewhere says he will solo then gets pawned. Also I think people miss interpret Kiba's way of talking. I think its actually very similiar to australian humor. We make fun of/ or put down each other but don't actually mean it.

    Perfect evidence of this is the things Kiba said to Naruto in their chuunin exam match - yet when it came to the finals Kiba was the first and only (Sakura was a bit half assed) person to cheer and support Naruto. So whilst he does seem to talk down to Naruto they don't mean it, its just friendly bickering amongst friends.

    Well I know you mean this as a put down, but I have to agree to an extent. Kiba's biggest weakness is Akamaru. If Akamaru gets hurt kiba will stop everything he is doing and go straight to save him. Because Kiba prioritizes Akamaru's safety over everything else, a smart opponent could take advantage of that.

    Kishi forgot tea 8 after the time skip, seriously what has shino done since his Kankuro fight? I'm still holding out for them to do something in the war.

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    That's all Part 1 feats. In Part 1 he was indeed a bad ass. But now all he can do is gatsuuga. No more clever smoke bombs, no more strategy, no more two headed wolf mode, no more garouga. Just Gatsuuga spam.

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    Only thing i dont like about Kiba & Akamaru is that piss everywhere jutsu, but it's whatever.. I still haven't given up on Kiba & Akamaru, but in shippuden, he is looking pretty fodder. Even in these new naruto video games, Kiba is fodder.

    Typical response by so called ~Logic~. Not that i'm suprised though since according to you everyone is fodder as long as they aren't Itachi.

    Kiba hasn't had a proper fight in shippuden so we wouldn't get a chance to see how he has matured. The only thing we have seen is him fighting zetsu and one collaboration attack with naruto vs. Tobi. Maybe we will see something in the war, but I think the fights are to high level now.

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    You list part 1 feats.
    The thing is, kiba has more or less, not grown at all since part 1.
    That is why he is fodder nowadays.
    Arguably the weakest out of the konoha 11.
    Either him or Tenten(who more or less didnt grow at all either).

    Ino-shika-cho has grown.
    Hinata has grown.
    Shino is badass.
    Neji and lee were already miles above the others.

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    There aren't many members of the Konoha 11 that actually got much development in Part 2, so IMO I think it's flawed to call any of them out without seeing them in an actual fight. I agree that he's probably not going to be that high on the K11 tier list, but I highly doubt he's gotten weaker over the time-skip like so many are seeming to imply. Looking at his rise in stats judging from the databook, he should at least be given that. Although the only noticeable thing that's probably going to matter is his 1.0 rise in ninjutsu. The rest are around a .5 raise that just allow him to remain his rank among the others who also trained.

    To back up my point, the databook also said he learned a technique called the Senpuu Rouga (whirlwind wolf fang).

    Re: Kiba - one of the most underrated characters

    Awesome thread dude!
    Tho Kiba is 4th in my list, I've always thought he was pretty smart despite his appasionate personality makes him look dumb. I think his issue is that does not usually think too far away in the future, which leads to not planning. So he usually get caught in tricky situations, but I like that of him too :y It makes his few battle very interesting, cause are unpredictable and ya never know what creative move will Kiba do.
