And what always has pissed me off is that he always doesn't get nothing from the first explanation.Always asks "so, why is that?" to an obvious thing.

    And to the rasenshuriken training, if you watch the naturemanipulation training thingy closely from beginning naruto is being really dumb. Kakashi had to explain things to him like to a 6-year old.
    Kishi did it for 2 reasons=
    1. to do comedy
    2. to make the dumbest of the viewers (may be a child):D understand the concept thus interest.

    But naruto is shown to have intel at times.
    I believe he will become hokage as he understood pain's logic about justice, pain and vengenence in first go.(it was pretty tough to get even to the smart ones: u may say naruuto exp let him through but he made it that's all)

    Kakashi Training(also sages training) and pain's encounter were contrasting.

    All the other Hokages were geniuses from birth and sharpminded so do u think Naruto is going to end being Hokage as he's not the sharpmindest? I really hope so yeah but seems impossible..He's got the heart sure and strenght but other important stuff, nooo..
    All Kage are not genius from birth. In many cases what sets them aside is that they are extremely powerful ninja. The Raikage, as an example, doesn't appear to be too bright. He is strong though.

    That said, the leaf village has had a string of hokage who are both extremely intelligent and powerful at the same time. The third hokage is arguably the most intellegent, with the fourth hokage and tsunade coming in close behind. There's no evidence that the first and second hokages were super-smart, only that they were very powerful and very compassionate leaders.

    In the sense of Power, Naruto does have what it takes. He has the power to lead the village on the battlefield and to be personally responsible for the safety of the village. Off the battlefield, you raise a good point: Naruto really isn't qualified (or even interested) in some of the more mundane tasks of village leader. International relations, budgets and finance, sending other people out on dangerous missions, etc. These are all things that we would expect Naruto to do poorly.

    If Naruto does become Hokage, I expect it to last for a whole 12 days before he gives up and goes off on a different adventure.

    Re: Naruto too stupid to become Hokage?

    Naruto did goof off a lot in the beginning of the series, but he has seen a lot of things.
    He has learned about pain, vengeance, war etc. He has grown.
    You don't see him goofing off lately.
    Naruto thinks he himself is dumb, but he isn't.
    He was just childish. No one has ever shown him the right way to do things.
    The recent Naruto is very different of the Naruto in the beginning.
    I think he will make a great Hokage. He is the child of the foretold prophecy after all.

    Well cant argue with you about that. Best answer so far against my opinion along with Ignorance's answer.
    Allthough I still can't see Naruto sitting behind desk making budjetcuts and sending ninjas to for examlpe S,A and B ranked missions

    Re: Naruto too stupid to become Hokage?

    i think he matured actually, and even became a bit smarter, also you don't have to be smart to be hokage....(even though all of them are) i think (assuming sasuke returns to the village and is forgiven) sasuke will be naruto's "right-hand-man" just as shizune is tsunade's, shikamaru will fill the same role as his father.

    Re: Naruto too stupid to become Hokage?

    I think..
    it is not about whether the hokage is DUMB or smart..

    It is the will of the hokage(or other kages) to protect their village is the only thing that matters..

    Well what do u think about what I said earlier:

    "Good poinst but naruto is still a genin so..that tells us something.
    And also those things u just listed, well maybe if we think common sense then we can probably compare Leaf to our worlds nations and do you think people who are not intelligent gets elected? Forget Bush lol. But still I'd love to see a leader in one of our world nations with such ideal qualities but the reality is that, that is not how u run a town/state/nation. And I dont think it shouldn't be or isn't like that in naruto as well if we were to think it in common sense. All though it would be nicer that way and idealistic."

    So it's nice you have the will to protect but is it enough...
    I still can't see Naruto sitting behind desk making budjet cuts and sending people to dangerous missions.

    Re: Naruto too stupid to become Hokage?

    Have to agree with BA. Although I don't think it matters in the end 'cause it's clear Naruto will become hokage and my guess is that we will see some major improvement in his problemsolving skills etc.
    But the goofy naruto shouldn't or couldn't become hokage 'cause then Leaf would be f*cked. So maybe he will mature even more during the 4th War.
