Re: Kakashi Hype
Underrate him or ranking in itself?? While I'm sure it's arguable that characters like Gai, Daruis, etc can defeat Mei and Tsunade based off their fighting styles, they lack the qualifications being Kage level. Kakashi has shown the ability to defend as analyze situations, but it's not his power that stops him from being Kage, but what's been displayed from his character as a whole. With his tricky tactics and defending fodder, he hasn't accomplished anything that a character of his level shouldn't have.

In all instances where we've seen villages attacked, Kakashi wouldn't have done as good as 3rd Hokage, Tsunade, Garra, Minato, etc in protecting his village or at least assisting those in need. However, he is great to help attack a situation when needed, which is where his character has been shown the most is dealing with!
The fact is Jounin level is just below Kage, not because they would get owned by every Kage, but simply because they don't fully have help it takes to take on top tier shinobi while having save others. Kakashi can defend against top tier shinobi but no where beyond that, at some point he would need assistance and a Kage shouldn't need that in every situation.
