Re: Sasuke is the greatest prodigy of the Uchiha clan that ever lived!!
Itachi was a prodigy, and he never lost at any point in the manga, his high quality as a person and a shinobi. You act like Itachi exploit his potential, which is completly wrong.
The reason why he was such a prodigy is because he exploited all of his potential at such a young age.
He pretty much attained his limits in terms of quality and execution, the only that was really left for him to do was to learn more jutsu ...
The databook stats can be used to showcase how he bad reached his full profiency in ninjutsu, genjutsu, seals, intellect and speed.
You have gotten the illusion that Itachi didnt do nothing because he was already besting down sannins at 13 years old, he likely still got better overtime but he at some point had reached his potential.
Sasuke is no prodigy. He is a genius above all Uchihas but he isnt a prodigy. A prodigy is someone who reaches and exploits his potential at a very age, Sasuke is young and is to some extent a prodigy but as much as Itachi was.
Both Itachi and Sasuke pretty much had a very similar potential. The difference is that Itachi reached his limit much faster than Sasuke did. Itachi is both a genius and a prodigy while Sasuke only is a genius and not a prodigy considering the gap between Itachi's power at 13 and Sasuke at 13 (Already beats kage levels while the other is a high ranked genin)
And dont get me wrong, Sasuke will become the strongest to have lived, but he isnt the greatest prodigy they had, Itachi. All arround Itachi is a better version of Sasuke but Itachi gave Sasuke the chance to acquire the Ems. Sasuke being in Itachi's position would have never achieved the same results, he didnt have the talent to meet such high requirements, it needed a genius and prodigy like Itachi to pull offf what he did at such a young age.
And taking Itachi's words and saying that he has failed is laughable.
hes succeeded much more than he has failed so far. Itachi hasnt failed until Naruto fails as Itachi made Naruto part of his plan and made sure by saving him and entrusting him that Naruto would be there if Sasuke was to attack, and Sasuke has yet to confirm his desire for revenge as Itachi has had a great impact on him.
