Re: Narutobase viz clear up thread
I don't really understand what the point of this thread is...
He claimed sasauke to be "One of the strongest"... That doesn't mean anything essentially, since we have no idea how many strong opponents he fought. He said one, which implies he not the strongest, meaning he still fails in comparison to Minato. Another thing is that Bee never took Minato 1 v 1, but was always teamed up with his Partner Raikage. Yet... Neither of them was able to direct a hit on him, meaning that there could be a massive difference between them in power, which i believe to be the case.
I understand that Sasuke is a genius, in a naruto term. What do i mean? Well simple.... Genius in naruto, is a word that gets tossed around allot. There as been many ninja that has been called a genius like Itachi, Minato, Kakashi, Garra, Rock lee, Sasuke, Shikamaru ... Most of the time the context would refer to power, rather than intelligence.
Remember back to the "Sannin showdown" Orochimaru said... "Naruto was never be able to surpass Sasuke, as long as he's been born with the sharingan". Jiraiya then replied, "What's the point in training, someone that is "born a genius" Now... There is no real telling that someone will be intelligent, so it's clear their talking about power.
I will admit that sasuke is a strong character no doubt about it... Although there are allot of things that are said in the manga, such as Itachi famous quote "If he take him on, we will both die" I don't know if that's the exact words, although it's more of less the same point.
Pain himself stated that if Jiraiya knew his secret then he would have essentially been defeated. Point is.. That we see people that don't particularly seem as if they would stand a chance, and yet the manga reflects it differently with the speech of characters...
Anyway, i will stop there since i don't full understand the point to this thread, no disrespect!
