Re: Sasuke without sharingan =Minato >Naruto without kurama
I would say that he would have deactivated it because the fight ended, we never actually saw the fight, only the aftermath. I never see Sasuke having the Sharingan activated just for the sake of activating it. Hes a cocky guy, when he fought against Deidara, at the end when he thought he won, he deactivated his Sharingan, which pissed off Deidara because he thought Sasuke was looking down on him.

Kakashi got pass the ninja system very quickly however what people fail to understand that though a genius the reasons was because the system was less strict during the time of the 3rd war and i suppose jonins/team leaders were needed to cope. Mikoto even notes this when sasuke asks about itachi's accomplishment [1
True, he would have not copied so many jutsus, and he wouldn't have been exhausted with chakra due to using the Sharingan, but was he really lazy in his training? How do you know this? This was a time when Kakashi lost his best friend and Rin. If anything, that would inspire him to train even harder than ever, so I'm not really sure about this part. Maybe he might have, but he could have been worst as well, this has now gotten to the stage where it's just guessing and speculation with no manga facts to back it up. xD
Anyway, the sharingan has helped kakashi alot and due to this has gained him the copy ninja alias however it came at a great cost. If kakashi had kept his original eye, he will not have learnt this 1000 jutsu's however from a very young age he managed shape and chakra manipulation. He seems like somebody who wouldv'e went on and created many techniques on his own and gathered his own fighting style like other great ninjutsu developers like sasori and orochimaru whom by feat aren't rivalled when it comes to ninjutsu development, however he got lazy with the sharingan. His reserves take a hit when he uses the sharigan which limits him to an extent, but also his training capabilities.
Also note that sasuke needed lee without weights speed to use chidori which states that kakashi at that age had lee's speed already. I can go on and on, but kakashi had great potential
Hmm, well maybe they could have learnt RDS, considering that Minato died when Kakashi was young. Even so, we can't really say for sure because this is now just bordering into assumptions and speculations.
I made a typo meant to say kakashi doesn't know shiki fujin. Corrected it after you quoted me.
In order to learn shiki fujin obviously the seals would have to be taught to the person.
Naruto would be on Minato's level as a genius or higher, I agree. (developing rasengan further than Minato, better chakra giver, mass shadow clones allows Naruto to learn super fast) and I believe that Itachi would have been as well. One thing with Itachi, is that he learnt much faster than Sasuke. Itachi learnt fireball technique instantly, Sasuke one week. But with Sasuke (without sharingan), I'm not so sure, I believe he is not as great a genius as Minato, and I think there are different level of geniuses.
Also put naruto especially after the latest manga as the greatest genius in the series with sasuke second though when sasuke shows us more he'd be equal
