Naruto can do one handed rasengan, despite what people says, but he chooses not to because it's too easy for people to counter. Just look at his one-handed rasengan against Kabuto, and how easily Kabuto dodged it. And then look at his clone-used rasengan - he successfully hit Kabuto. Clones just make it easier for Naruto to do rasengan so he can have an easier time of hitting the person instead of being too obvious about it, kinda like how he was with FRS when he was fighting Kakuzu.
thats what i mean, sauske i questioning his life and has made many improvements mental and physically that we can see. naruto is still the same hot headed ninja that rushes off without thinking or preparing fully, he still has the same motivation since part 1 while sasuke is making great strides even bringing back oro to find the answer hes looking for. naruto hasnt even questioned himself why he wants to save sasuke or how hes even gonna do it, he thinks theyre gonna fight and thats it. lifes not that simple and naruto needs to realize that. i really hop he doesnt turn obito good cause that will keep his head in the clouds and wont introduce him to the real reality that there are people who are evil for the sake of being evil and sometimes you can change their minds and you have to let them beQuote:
but what am i saying the story doesnt make sense theyre all fighting for peace, why not just let them cast it without killing everyone? it may be fake peace but eventually everyone would come to terms with it and you can live how and wherever you want...seems alright to me XD lmfao and if not why cant they just sit and jam out over a cup of sake and talk things over? if they all want peace why not reach a conclusion that benefits both sides. no more wars or battles for naruto, no taking over the world for obito lol seems fair to me

Naruto couldn't hit Kabuto because he was too slow. He ended up finally hitting him with a Rasengan because he held him in place and had a clone make the Rasengan for him in one hand.
Making clones takes up more time, more chakra, and I'm sorry, but should make it more obvious that he is going to make a Rasengan.
If Naruto could simply have made Rasengans with one hand quickly, he could be in a fist fight and then WHAM! Crack someone with one and level them. But instead, he has to go through the trouble of making a clone and then making one which logically should be more obvious, time consuming, and uses more energy.

he shouldnt need to spam rasengan at the beginning, middle and end of the fight hoping to land a hit, he should be past that by now
Sasuke's progress is not based on will power or a winning mentality. It is based purely on hatred - pure and simple. This was proven in the forest of death. He was against an opponent he didn't hate and what happened to him? Weak at the knees, did he not get?
You can't say his progress has been based on a winning mentality. It has been fueled by emotion and very distructive at that (ask Manda / ask Karin) and that's why he will sacrifice his comrades to get his goal. How did he trick the leaf?
You say he tricked Oro - anyone could have seen Oro was not well. Sasuke took a risk with Oro based on his hatred for the leaf. That hatred was so much he went down a destructive path refusing to see any light. That is not being smart, that is destructuve behaviour. As for Tobi, Sasuke fell hook, line and sinker for the story he was told. He may have his own plan, but Jyuubi would not be revived today if not for Sasuke. He aimlessly went to get the hachibi because he thought Tobi will give him what he wants. Again destrucitve behaviour.
Sasuke does not even play the sore loser card which is a trait of people with a winning mentality (they hate losing). Sasuke is purely emotional. Talent may make him similar to Lebron but I think that is were the similarities end.
Fake peace is not permanent peace, people won't automatically come to terms with it. THey need to understand each other, not be fake peace. bunnyQuote:
Because Naruto cannot do sudden rasengan.Quote:
Everyone has a goal that drives them. Sasuke's was revenge. Naruto's was too be Hokage. Kakashi's was to protect his comrades. Each uses different emotions to fuel these goals. Wanting to win because you are hate something and want to destroy it is no different than wanting to win because you want to protect something. Difference is, once you have revenge, what else is there? Sasuke has a need t win because he wants revenge and wants to set things right. He has a win at all costs mentality, that should be plainly obvious.
As for how he tricked the leaf, he lied to his comrades, took an oath to defend his village and betrayed them despite the faith they had in him. He more so tricked his team and Kakashi than anyone else.
You call this destructive behavior and yet Sasuke has not been destroyed, he's stronger than ever and is searching for the answers. He is looking for clarity, and now has his head on straight to do so. I don't think you could be any more wrong in that regard.
Sasuke has always been competitive and a sore loser, always. His fight with Lee is another example of this.
IMO you have either ignored these things are simply forgot. But one of themes of this manga is Naruto and Sasuke's rivalry. It wouldn't be much of a rivalry if they both weren't sore losers and wanted to better the other and hated losing. Both are driven by emotion, and both work hard to achieve what they want despite how hard things can be.

True, true, I don't know why he doesn't do it, but I guess that'd make him too overpowered. Imagine 20 Naruto coming at you with rasengan, or fighting trickster Naruto who could use rasengan anytime. It'd be hard to beat him when you don't know when he'll bust out a powerful move.
Hell, he can even do FRS without needing a clone in Kyuubi Chakra mode, so I guess he can technically do rasengan one handed now, which makes no sense but whatever.
see thats what i mean like why keep powering up one move why not make naruto whole?
IMO this isn't a Naruto a problem, but a Kishi problem. In an attempt to expand on the powers of characters he made them too God like and thus had to make Naruto and Sasuke be God like with their powers too.
Something to do with Naruto as a character? I never understood that myself, considering Naruto is smarter htan given credit for. He'd be so dangerous with more jutsu in his arsenal. Give him few C-rank wind jutsu and he'd probably turn them into dangerous jutsu. He was able to make kage bunshin-henge no jutsu and trick Kiba twice, I think. He also used clones to create his own version of Lion Barrage, which was effective. I guess he'd be too overpowered with more jutsu?
As I said before, I don't think he is an a-hole. I just feel in the state he was in, he lost all touch with the world around him. The revenge bubble surrounded him.
I still don't think he has demonstrated any strong will at all!
