What's Up With People Taking "Kage-Level" Lightly? It's Overused.
I've seen people compare Lee, Chouji, Hidan, Zabuza, and even Part 1 CM Sasuke as being Kage level. Seriously? Whatever happened to the title of Kage, and why is it so easily acheived?
Well, I think there are a couple things.
First of all, it doesn't help having people like Tsunade and Mei as Kages. Before, Kages were these legendary shinobi that were often shrouded in mystery and power. Then after seeing Tsunade (but mostly Mei) Kage level seemed to be something that could be acheived easier. As much as you argue, Tsunade and Mei can't compare to any other Kage.
Another thing is the power scaling. It's gotten to the point where even Kage level shinobi are being sh*t on by these OP shinobi from day's past. I think it's ridiculous how far the power scaling has gone, Sage Mode should have been the strongest powerup Naruto got.
That being said, bring back the Kage days!
