Re: Gai vs itachi!!!
It seems obvious that you are vastly overestimating the capabilities of the eight gates. They increase his speed and power but neither have been shown to be very impressive in comparison to the top shinobi. Even with seven gates open he needed Bee to throw him to catch up to Kisame, even with a head start Guy should have been able to catch up to him in time but he didn't.

The gates don't seem to be as much of a power boost as Sage mode or raiton armor but everyone thinks that it is.Everyone in Konoha knows that Guy uses the gates and taijutsu solely so they know what he is capable of, and they were never asking him to fight the big battles like they were Naruto or Kakashi.
Honestly if you would stack up Guy against pretty much anybody in the Naruto Universe than you are pretty much by definition a fanboy.
Minato, Nagato/Pain, Hiruzen, hashirama, Tobirama, Oro, Jiraiya, Itachi, Sasuke, Naruto, Madara, A, Oonoki, Mizukage, maybe Kakashi, Kabuto, Yamato, Danzo, Kisame with Samehada, Deidara, Sasori, Hidan, Kakuzu, Mu, Bee, maybe Darui, and some other people I can't think of can all beat Guy.
Don't kid around.
