    Narutos fighting style will always consist of him being a punching bag

    Pretty much in all of hokage narutos appearances he hasn't really been that impressive I was expecting naruto to gain a bit more finesse with age. I get naruto is meant to be a tank and I guess it's explained that he's rusted his abilities but I would of thought adult naruto would grow out of being a punching bag.

    Re: Narutos fighting style will always consist of him being a punching bag

    Naruto has always pulled his punches where Sasuke is the polar opposite and goes right for the jugular. To have Naruto fight more aggressively kind of undermines his "good natured likeable fellow" persona.

    Naruto isn't meant to be the dark brooding Ninja a lot of people want him to be. That's reserved for Sasuke.

    I agree with that to an extent but doesn't mean naruto need to take as much punishment as he does.

    Suits the character. Part of 'the better man' aspect as seen in the Valley fight and VS Karui.

    When Naruto needs to get sh*t done he gets it done, his biased pardons are a little extreme but worked, created loyal and powerful allies for Konoha and the Ninja World as a whole.

    As for his fighting style? I'm glad he never became hugely skilled with a sword or complex jutsu, the idea of a man changing the world with brute force and his two hands was always appealing to me, which is why I loved the clones & Kyuubi mode and hate chakra avatars and nukes.

    I agree. It's one of the reason I wished he hadn't befriended Kurama. We all saw how savage Naruto could get when pushed too far ala Six Paths of Pain fight when Hinata got wrecked.

    The last time Naruto was impressive was in the Pain arc in terms of fighting style, I wish the adult version of him was an upgrade version of that.

    His style = make a million shadow clones until one gets lucky or he until finds a way to win.

    It was his initial style anyway.

    Re: Narutos fighting style will always consist of him being a punching bag

    Naruto gets intel via shadow clones. He sets up his attacks via bunshin feints and unorthodox tactics. A homage to Kitsunes and their trickster Nature

    Very rarely does he get directly attacked unless he's setting up for something, risking the hit or the underdog in the fight in which case he's outmatched.


    Naruto pays attention to how many clones he utilizes and draws from that in real time. It's like people ignore his tactics against pain and kakazu.


    The only ones who plan to be a potential punching bag directly would be Sakura and Hidan

    Naruto's no punching bag, but his opponents sure are. If TNJ doesn't work, then the solo fist will.

    It's kinda early to form an opinion on Nardo as an adult when he's been in only one serious fight and the opponent he fought against worked him and sauce over.
