Re: Kakashi Hype
Sigh.. When i sometimes read arguments in NB, i ask myself if people are reading the same manga i do. Some people say that Kakashi was only nominated as kage because there were no concurrent?
Then i will ask you. Who is strong enough in kirigakure to have been able to occupied the kage position besides Mei? Zabuza? Nukenin. Kisame? Nukenin. 7swordsmen? Dead except from Chojuro(too young)
Who could have taken Gaara's place? Kankuro? lol Temari? lmao Just imagine if Gaara dies. We would have guys like Kankuro as Kage,lol
I can name you plenty of ninjas in Konohagakure who are stronger than Kankuro, Chojuro, Temari, etc The fact is being kage in such villages means absolute nothing to me, cuz the concurrence to be kage in those village is pretty low. Put Mei in Konoha for example and she would have never been a kage in my opinion. Base on feats i can name you bunch of konoha ninjas who can kick her ass
Each village have certain principes to nominate someone as a kage. A kage should do all he h can to protect his village. Suna is constituate of desert everywhere. Gaara controlls sand perfectly, so who could have protected Suna more than Gaara? He has sand everywhere in this village, which gives him huge advantages in the protection of a village. Put Gaara somewhere else with no sand and you will clearly notice the difference. Why do you think that in all his fights in Shippudent, Kishimoto only put him in a desert? It's because he knows that it's in a desert where Gaara can use his full potential.
Experience is also a great factor to have a chance to be nominated as a kage. That's why eventhough Naruto is the strongest in Konoha, he wasn't choosed as a kage. Even Kakashi was considered as too young while they wanted to put him as hokage. So it's not because someone is hokage that he is always meant to be the strongest in his village. Ex: Tsunade is not the strongest in konoha by far. But the fact Tsunade is much more older, has much more experience, is strong as well, can protect the village efficiently, because of those reasons, Tsunade was the best choice like Jiraya also stated
Kakashi is more like a fighter, he is not that good to protect others like Tsunade. So before you say that someone is kage level or not, start to ask yourself if your talking about the title of kage in general or the powerwise. Because if you say that Tsunade is better than Kakashi as a kage, i won't deny that fact. Tsunade is far more better as a kage, she has healing abilities, she is better to protect on a huge scale, etc But in terms of power or battle, she is simply outclassed by Kakashi
So the argument concerning the fact that Kakashi was only a second choice and because of that he is not kage level is laughable. In title yes Tsunade is better, but in power? Hell no
