Re: .kakashi is being too overrated, and too underrated
*Sigh*, not another overrated and underrated character thread. All the popular characters are overrated, but a at the same time a little room can be made about them being underrated.
Anyway firstly top whatever doesn't exist therefore you shouldn't take too much notice of ranking threads and argue with who's ranking is 'right'. Fact is none is, because kishi hasn't made one. Understand this and you wouldn't take too much notice about who a member decides to put into top whatever.
Example. Kakashi doesn't make top 15, for me. He might however make top 5 for somebody else, it depends on how you judge it really.
Majority judge it on who they believe will win a fight in a situation and that never works. Quiet a lot of things contribute to a fight. Ill give you an example.
Canonically speaking, Kisame > Bee.
Gai > kisame.
Majority will agree that Bee > Gai.
However when i rank i look at their strengths rather than who won the fight or who i believe will win a fight. kisame was a good match against bee and gai was a good match against kisame.
Though Bee lost to kisame, and kisame lost to gai. If i was to rank it will be like this
Similarly id put deidara above hebi sasuke, sasori above, chiyo/sakura, hidan above shikamaru. Yes the akatsuki lost, however they are still stronger than who they lost to, because each of these fights were created in a way that, akatsuki would lose.
Orochimaru, jiraiya and bee are all above kakashi in my book.
Now kakashi can beat them with kamui without knowledge, but that doesn't mean he is stronger.
The 3 character's ive named above have overall stronger techniques/abilities but kakashi holds the ace card above them.
Dunno if you watch football, but majority agree that man for man Real have a stronger team and bench than Barca.
However Barca have the best player out of both teams which is messi. Think of oro/Jiraiya/bee as real and kakashi as barca, with messi as kamui. If that makes sense.
