    Sleeves in Naruto

    After reading through the entire Naruto series again, I could not help but notice that sleeves seem to play a large part in Naruto battles. In most cases the victor is the character who still has sleeves at the end of the battle or has had sleeves throughout. If both characters have sleeves the victor will ussually be the combatent with the longest sleeves. When a character loses an arm (therefore losing a sleeve) their victory is far less obvious or comes at a high price i.e Jiraiya sending a message containing the secret to defeating Pein or Deidara losing an arm as part of a strategy to capture Gaara.

    Examples

    Zabuza Vs Kakashi (2nd): Zabuza lacked sleeves and Kakashi was the victor.

    Kimmimaro Vs Gaara: Kimmimaro was shirtless at the time of his demise, thus making Gaara the victor.

    Neji Vs Kiddimarou: Kiddimarou wore a sleeveless outfit and lost the battle

    Sasuke Vs Deidara: Although Sasuke was topless at the climax of the fight he still had sleeves upon his person wheras by this time Deidara did not. Sasuke was the victor.

    This is only a very short list of the cases that theory has been proven.

    I believe that it is possible to determine battle outcome in Naruto using this theory.

    Hidan had a sleeve missing and he still killed Asuma who had both sleeves.

    interesting point

    Hidan did end up dying

    Shikamaru-hidan

    Maybe this theory is based on the very end result


    This theory is somewhat similar to the cloakless akatsuki theory

    evertime an akatsuki loses his cloak he dies
    deidara-dead
    sasori-dead
    kazuku-dead
    hidan(half off) dead

    I think this is an occasion where correlation does not prove causation.

    It's funny when things that really shouldn't be plausible to the outcome of a match do end up becoming plausible because of how the author thinks. Correlation and causation pertains to real life, but not manga.

    Akatsuki cloak off = death, until proven wrong.

    Re: Sleeves in Naruto

    Maybe it's Kishimoto's unintentional habit, which he isn't aware of at all.
    Something that is stuck in his mind.

    Or maybe he can't draw wounds and blood through those capes.

    Still, each of Akatsuki so far took off their robes for a reason. Whether it is to use their abillities (Sasori, Kakuzu) or to save their neck (like Deidara).

    But it's a fun theory. I couldn't stop laughing when I read first two posts.

    Maybe the villains likes to show their muscles from their hands and that is why they are wearing shirts without sleeves .

    Lol. Agreed with this guy. Correlation doesn't prove causation. Shikamaru beat Temari during the chuunin match. Temari had longer sleeves.

    Losing sleaves, and also talking about the next generation taking over might turn out to be a popular recipe for death.

    No, this is just a normal habit that fighter does when they get serious.
    Of course it's because the cloak limits their movements so they take it off to have maximum flexibility.
