    Sakura Haruno's possible character development.



    Ok, so I promised this thread regarding Sakura's development in the series, ie supassing Tsunade.
    I know the majority of you will start bashing towards her calling her all that names. I've heard it before, not impressed.
    So note this: every single bashing towards her will be reported! I am not here for your whining personalities, not for hearing your hate.
    There is a lot hate in this world, real one, so I don't need some childish hate towards a character. Are we clear?
    I am looking for a nice discussion/debate upon these theories I am having.
    Before saying that no, Sakura will not get it because Naruto is ending, let's not forget that Kishi said multiple times that he wanted to end the series yet he found himself continuing it.
    So until it's not finished, I have the right to think up for some certain possibilities as long as I want.
    Hopefully, we are clear.

    Sorry if I sounded *****y, my excuses, I've just had it with people with whom you can't have a nice discussion. I am just repaying in the same manner, if you want to take it like that.

    Now, let's get down to business.

    Given the last events, as we've seen, Tsunade is on her verge of dying. There's a 50/50 chance of survival. We don't know for sure if she dies or lives.

    But putting this aside, I have had these ideas before this whole Tsunade events of certain developments Sakura might get.


    1. Yin Seal.

    Well, as we know, Kishi has drawn Sakura to make a big deal out of her forehead.
    From the series's start this was a part of her personality, more exact, one of her biggest problems regarding her insecurities over her looks.



    But what made me think it's not just about her forehead as a personality issue was after Tsunade was introduced in the manga, and afterwards, Sakura became her student and we saw the pattern Kishi followed with the 3 characters.

    Naruto - Jiraiya: Learned Rasengan from him at the beginning as a prime development, afterwards he learned Sage Mode.

    Sasuke - Orochimaru: Curse Seal as a prime development, afterwards learned Kirin with the help of Orochimaru, which, surprisingly or not, enough, looks like a Dragon (according to the manga, snakes evolve into dragons, see Kabuto getting Dragon Sage Mode)

    Sakura - Tsunade: Medical ninjutsu and improved taijutsu as a prime development, second yet to see.

    When we are first presented to Tsunade we got to see the Yin Seal drawn... where do you think? Exactly, on her forehead!



    Later on, Kishi emphasizes once again the "forehead" thing with Tsunade.



    As we clearly know, Kishi isn't the man to place signs here and there for nothing.

    Putting the jokes aside, this reminds me of a funny picture I've found few days ago.



    That was for the laughs.

    Now, going on with my theories/possibilities, however you want to call it.

    2. Genjutsu (Bringer of the Darkness)

    As we know, in the beginning, ironically, Sakura falls under Kakashi's genjutsu in the 2 bell training.



    But later on, we learn that she has gotten better at genjutsu, as proven in the Chuunin exams and Kakashi's words.







    Of course, now you'll say that she was only shown to disperse it, but in the major fight Sakura had with Sasori, genjutsu would've been totally out of the question.

    Now, you might ask yourself why I straightly went to Bringer of the Darkness and not other genjutsu.
    Well, as I was re-reading the manga, one thing caught my attention.

    In the Team 7 which consisted in Yamato and Sai, Sakura was always associated with Yamato.



    And what really really caught my attention was this:







    Out of them, Sakura was the only one to recognize the Jutsu and the Mokuton ninjutsu out of her colleagues.
    Actually as we've seen, besides Naruto, none of them were associated in some sort of way with Hashirama Senju.
    The only one who was, indirectly, is Sakura as we've seen in these scans because we all know who Yamato is.

    And also, the most powerful genjutsu technique Hashirama showed was, as we all know, Bringer of the Darkness.



    So if we put all these pieces together into a puzzle, it would lead to the fact that Sakura would get to learn it, taking into consideration that she is associated to Hashirama not only via Yamato, also via Tsunade who is his granddaughter and was known to know everything about her grandfather.

    So this would come fairly logic into Sakura's development.

    Another interesting thing I've noticed is this.
    In the War, now, when we are introduced to Nidaime Mizukage there's a hint.



    As we see, he says that his element is Yin (I wonder who possesses the same seal ) element and that this means he is a genjutsu user.

    So once again, if we put these into a puzzle, we can see it quite clear. The only missing puzzle here is Kishimoto.

    You might say that no, this is not possible but let us not forget about the fact that her master is the Hokage so, actually, Sakura has access to all these documents that contain jutsus and stuff like that.
    We caught a glimpse with Sakura having access to those things in the war, where she was reading a report made by Yamato. We all know that these reports are for the Hokage.





    And as we clearly see here, Sakura has access to it.

    Now, I know there will be some of you that will say this won't happen, it's not possible but Kishi hinted so many times that old generation is surpassed by the new one, also he has made this clear that might happen with Sakura via Kakashi and Chiyo and these two are strong voices in the Narutoverse.
    Kakashi, well, we all know who he is.
    And Chiyo, we also know who she is as well and Chiyo is a veteran in her own right that fought Tsunade many times, has wars behind as experience and yet she said Sakura is liable to surpass Tsunade.
    So this might come and it wouldn't be something strange to see, I would say that even expected.

    The Slug Sage Mode thing, I am not taking it into consideration because I do believe that belongs to Tsunade more than Sakura, but who knows, maybe Kishi throws a surprise. o.O

    Anyway, this is kinda it.
    Hope you enjoyed the reading!

    LATER EDIT: What I discovered more about another genjutsu specialist in the Senju clan was Tōka Senju.



    Now, what exactly Tōka means? Well, as you guessed it, it has connection with flowers.
    It means "Peach flower".

    Guess the color of peach flowers?



    Yeap, very similar to a certain's character hair and name.

    Well, maybe not the best, but one of the best out there.
    At least if this won't come to be, it shows how great potential she has, excepting the medical ninjutsu.

    Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.

    Great thread. I never thought of a possible foreshadowing of the Yin seal because of her forehead. Would have been better if you left out all the ugly pictures of Sakura though.

    Well, I couldn't leave those aside.
    It's part of everything.

    But thanks for commenting in a nice way, really appreciated.

    Hopefully Kishi will not put her in the back... She has shown great potential and would be lame not to develop her.

    its possible for a development but her only weakness is Sasuke!!
    Well, I guess from Tsunade?
    Indeed, her only weakness is her heart, as Kishi said it here:

Not trying to step on anyone's toes, as I'm really not that fond of Sakura, but really: are you forgetting she hasn't had the same level of motivation as Naruto and Sasuke?

    Naruto has gotten stronger to not only have people acknowledge him, as was his original goal, but also to save Sasuke, as well as the rest of his friends, fulfill promises he's made to his loved ones and ultimately to uphold peace/try to create peace. Sasuke, meanwhile, had something driving him to become strong and cunning from a very young age. He was led to believe it best to kill his brother, and so he trained constantly in order to grow stronger so he could one day take down his brother and avenge his family. He even chose to betray the people he cared about, break his bonds with them supposedly, in order to obtain power. And he did.

    After the truth about Itachi was revealed, Sasuke got a new drive: anger. Pure hatred that, at one point, had driven him absolutely mad. He became evil, truly evil, but he had also become even stronger because of his desire to crush the Leaf. Even if he didn't gain strength for the right reasons, that doesn't matter.

    You hear people say Naruto has surpassed Jiraiya and Sasuke has surpassed Orochimaru a lot; you don't hear them say the same thing about Sakura because she hasn't yet. She hasn't had the drive behind her, pushing her to. The reason to work so hard. But the fact that Kishimoto threw that in, especially so early on, means that there's a very good chance it will end up happening. So please, be patient and wait before you go bashing a character. The manga isn't even finished yet.
    I quote this guy cause he is a true Naruto Fan. His words alone can best describe Sakura threads. And I must say what do you think?

    Love the detail. It's gonna take a while to store the information in my head but subscribing to this thread is best. Thanks for the insight. Awesome fan as always!

    Well, the only problem I see is the Senju body, but surprisingly enough, she has shown great endurance when fighting with Sasori, even Sasori himself admitted that.
    Maybe it's another foreshadowing? :shrug:

    Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.

    I used to hate Sakura...seriously. But I think after her battle test with Naruto versus Kakashi, I was sold. I think she would have been better off if her fighting ability would been better in Part I and improved in part II. But the way she is now, I think she has a bright future ahead of her. She has made mistakes like Tsunade, but that has just made her resolve that much stronger to do her best even when its not convenient. Props to Sakura for breaking the mold and proving she deserves some praise. I don't think she could have had a better teacher and role model. If only Tenten would follow suit. :/

    Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.

    And the funny thing is and I say with no offense. There's nothing wrong with Sakura. At all. She's hated for a wrong reasons. Sure she lied to Naruto but only to protect him from knowing the truth. Which...actually made him hyperventilate. But it was Sai who told him so that does not count! Nope!

    The point is. The hate is excuses so fans will have something to look down upon. It's sad.

    Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.

    I think one thing that really redeemed Sakura for me in Part I was when she was defending Sauke and Naruto during the Chuunin Exams. I know she didn't win but points go to her for even attempting and wanting to not be the same.

    True, the whole love drama is way to out of the normal limits.
    I think Kishi got wrong the idea of romance in the manga.

    I never hated Sakura, I had nothing going on with her, not praise, not hate. She was just... there.
    But what totally got me on the offensive and defensive with her was every since I joined the base and I started to get more into this whole Naruto thing and saw the hate she gets. I just don't stand people bashing on someone/something. I always been the warrior who defends the ones that are not that liked or are wronged, lol, but that's another story.
    Sakura doesn't deserve even half of the hate she gets from the fandom. But that's another thing I will discuss.
    I am not trying to turn this thread into that.
    I will have a separate one for the matter.

    Here is only to show her development or at least how could Kishi develop her.

    As I said, I am not turning this thread into a hate Sakura thread and to explain her personality.
    For this I will have another thread coming-up soon.
    Or at least as soon as I can because it's going to take a while until I will write it, it's going to be one of those wall text, heh...

    I've always been a Sakura supporter, every since I joined the base and saw the hate from the fandom.
    As I said, before that, I didn't know that stuff like hating her happened, but when I saw it and I saw people did it wrong, I always got on the offensive when someone bashed about her, because she doesn't even deserve it.
    Most of the people don't even understand what's Sakura's role in this manga.

    Well for me it was that and it was as well when Sasuke kinda fought with her about Naruto because she made a silly statement about him and then she realized she was wrong and started to wonder herself if that's how Naruto felt and she started to stop being so silly.
    But indeed, the Chuunin exams was... wow.
    She didn't care, she was ready to get beaten to a pulp just to protect both of them and stood all the night awake so that they will not be in the slightest danger.

    Well if everyone would stop hating and start thinking they would've seen it coming too.
    Thanks!

    Well, Sai said some truth and mixed some things in the same time, but that's to be discussed in another thread.

    Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.

    Wanted to add my favorite Sakura thing in the series.

    When Shippuden first started (aka Naruto returning from his 2.5 years with Jaraiya), Sakura and Naruto had to get the bells from Kakashi.

    During that training Kakashi stated that Sakura was on track to surpass Tsunade. Kakashi's reason for this was because Sakura had become a "mini Tsunade" and Sakura was naturally a genjutsu user from the series start.

    Deadly mix!

    Thank you!
    At least I appreciate the fact you said it nicely. Really.
    About the personality, well, maybe we can discuss it in an upcoming thread? If you are open to it, if not, it's ok.

    Indeed that is a deadly mix because if she adds genjutsu to that crazy strenght she has now, she adds more potential to the one hit kill she already has.
    Imagine if she puts someone in genjutsu and then lands a punch.
    Deadly indeed.
    And Bringer of the Darkness is crazy OP genjutsu.
    Basically the enemy sees nothing.

    Re: Sakura Haruno's possible character development.

    To be honest, the reasons I hated Sakura were because

    - IMO, she didn't do much fighting compared to Naruto & Sasuke. Maybe that is a bad comparison but at least the other female in the Konoha 11/12 were able to fight.

    - I was impressed by Sakura's intelligence but that was quickly ruined by her annoying way of telling everyone that she knew the answer. Although I have to admit the tidbits she provided were quite entertaining.

    - She undermined Naruto and his potential (to some extent) and was more worried about Sasuke.

    I apologize if those aren't valid reasons but they are my own. I would like to hear your insight though to see your views on it. ^__^

    Well I believe that the hate towards her was more induced because of the anime, not the manga.
    In the anime they totally took things out of the box.

    1. True, she didn't do much fighting, but she was always on the defensive and helped the best she could. Also, let us not forget that the other females in K11 they all had something special about them, they were from a clan or something like this.
    Sakura had nothing, just her intelligence.

    2. I have never seen this behavior on her, to be honest. Maybe it was in the anime? Because in the manga, the only time I have seen her doing it was when she explained chakra to Naruto.

    3. Yes, that was what she did in the beginning, for life few chapters, but afterwards, Sakura was the only one to praise Naruto when others saw him as a failure.

    I will have more insight to these, as I said, in my upcoming thread.
    It might just take a while because it's some sort of Sakura analysis from Chapter 2-3 where she appeared until the last chapter she appeared and that will take a long time.
    But maybe after that we can have a chat?
    It's really nice to see people open to discussion regarding Sakura. ^_^
