People overrate Gaara too much I think. They say his shield of sand is the strongest . I saw a thread that if Gaara is on a sand battlefield,he can beat Nagato,Madara etc .
Now watch this .
Even 2nd Mizukage managed to broke it ... Imagine the others.
I'm not saying Gaara is a fodder , he is the strongest of his village, but out of it,he isn't that strong .
