Re: Shikamaru and kakshia would fail at hokage
Then it must be pure coincidence that
A Hokage is like a General in a war, they don't need to fight there job is to strategize and use their forces where needed
1st hokage was a powerhouse with intelligence
2nd Hokage was a powerhouse and could make water through chakra
3rd hokage was smart but also immensely powerful
4th Hokage, was FOS worthy for being so powerful
3rd Kazekage was unique and powerful
Gaara, the 5th? Kazekage is also brains and brawn
Raikage is just all out Power
Tsuchikage is an old fascist but full of power
Mizukage also has an array of powerful Jutsu
Danzou as Hokage is amazingly powerful.
In fact every Hokage battle we have seen we have never actually seen them act as general
The 3rd Hokage let the village do its usual commonplace strategy of hide the civilians and let the ninjas go all out, while the 3rd fought 1 on 1 with Orochimaru
Imagine if that was Oro vs Shika, with that shield around him.
Naruto and Kakashi wouldnt be able to get in, Shika would be owned, and then itd be up to Naruto and Kakashi WITHOUT shikas intelligence.
This is why Hokages need both brains and power, and why Shika should be a strategist and Advisor, NOT the leader.
Gaaras fight, we again see no use of general, in fact he dissapeared without even telling his Ninjas what was happening, and simply let them figure out tactics themselves while he fought deidara 1 vs 1.
So again, another Hokage battle where your "general" idea is absolute nonsense and never occured.
Imagine Sasuke taking on Shikamaru at the 5 kage meeting.
Shika binds sasuke if he can, Sasuke cant move, but he can use his eyes to burn amaterasu onto him, cast tsukyomi, or simply susano'o slap him.
Danzo restricted sasukes movement and SLAP.
Shika wouldve been PWNED at that meeting had sasuke taken him on instead of the other 5.
Shika should be an ADVISOR, not the hokage, plain and simple.
