Re: Kiba hate
He has to be cocky, his family puts heaps of pressure on him. Tsume is the narutoverse's no.1 b!tch. Also if you actually pay attention to Kiba his actions don't actually stack up with his mouth. For example -

His cockyness got the better of him and he lost, bad mouthing naruto along the way. BUT if you actually pay attention in the chuunin finals Kiba is the first and one of the few people (the other being hinata, sakura had to be convinced into it) to cheer for Naruto.
"Don't act cool just because Hinata's here"- Is an example of his relationship with Naruto and Hinata which is essentially the same. He likes to tease either side but when it comes to a front he is fiercely loyal and protective of both. He is like a dog, loyal and protective of his friends - its just that he has a friendly teasing attitude with them.
I think a lot of people don't actually take the time to think about Kiba's character. He is actually reasonably complex and interesting. He basically equates to Naruto without the bad childhood, and hence isn't quite as mature. It also doesn't hurt that he is the most animated character in the series, which I like.
You'd be surprised, I've seen a couple coming through lately.
