Trying to put it simply... I would say a genius is a shinobi who excells far beyond that of a normal member of the village forces in all manner of respects, but sometimes it can be a clan trait (Uchiha have a disposition to "genius" shinobi for example) but now and then you have one which kinda breaks the genius mould, like Lee who is a genius of hard work - which kinda goes against the genius grain because most genius characters tend to find things, or certain things elementary.
Naruto is also a genius in his own way, many people will argue, but he is a genius of persistance, for the sake of those he loves (they do kinda save his ass alot, he's running out of people lol) *edit* and also a genius to do a personality transplant on a being made of hatred... to well, a being which shouldnt be handing out chakra for scooby snacks.. seriously tho, like how it panned out with the 9 tails or not, he did fully combine with Kurama etc which also shows his metal (even tho it was a bit rushed lol)

Like no, mantaining a normal Rasengan takes a lot of effort, creating a giant one, a wind one, a throwable wind one and a great one with other three mini ones floating around it doesn't make it "the same thing"
Because Kage Bushins are useful, and he has enough chakra and stamina to spam the hell out of them in Base.Quote:
With a KB he can make a switch, upgrade to Oodama, distract the enemy, use a smoke bomb and a ton of other options, and we saw that the speed release is the same, Naruto was never slower than his opponent when doing a 2 person Rasengan
Then he tricking Sasuke, Gaara, Kakuzu, Kiba, Neji, Zabuza, Pein and whoever else was tricked by him, means that they are even dumber?Quote:
It also shows that one doesn't look at Naruto's character, try being all knowledgeable and stuff growing up with no parents, the village hating you and a desperate need for attention that made you concentrate on receiving aknowledgement more than study Not that he's the most intelligent person to begin with
Chidori variants are Nature manipulations, Orochimaru said as much.
And if he sucked at it, why then he created an S rank and an above S rank Fuutons?
Both have the means to do it thanks to their heritage, that was my point
Talent and unique abilities, Itachi was unique, no way around it.Quote:
I'm sure he could reach Madara's strenght, should've been without his illness
Let's call it manga-coolQuote:
Lol its the inverse, Orochimaru was barely affected ( it only burned his mask ) while Gaara was forced to stop moving.
Destroy the Naruto bias glasses
Like, so? Naruto can't do it on his own, Minato can.
But he's slower using kage bunshin to make rasengan when he can be faster and more unpredictable doing it on his own.Quote:
Naruto is clever/tricky, but he is not a genius.Quote:
He isn't, but Naruto has good potential to be smart, from what we've seen.
And shape manipulation as well, considering Sasuke manipulates the shape of it.Quote:
Help and clones.
And we saw he worked hard, although I doubt he could have gotten to Madara's strength, based on his chakra.Quote:
Yet Sasuke was praised.Quote:
There's no bias here, ma'am.
the one single moment of pure genius in naruto is kabuto adjusting to tsunda nerve attack as fast as he did, that shit was aizen like, as far as who has shown genius in battle well that has to be naruto hands down all his fight end with some unexpected genius move that none of his enemies see coming
not saying they didnt work hard to train i am just saying they had an edge over the more ordinary shinobi at the time
naruto was certainly a genius even if not thought so by his peers
he mastered the rasengan at a very early age even if he was using shadow clones to help, actually the fact that he developed his own method for the technique makes him more of a genius in my opinion
Naruto is a unique,out side the box' thinker,and sometimes a smart,and creative fighter, but that does not make him a genius.
I'm gonna drop in my state of mind. Naruto is a type of Genius. Not a one like Sasuke or Neji whose reputations go since when they were born which automatically gave them boost in confidence, self-awareness and ambition to become even greater. Once Naruto got that from other villagers... well, you see it on your own.
Problem here is naruto was never said to be a genius,and to say he's a different type just to give him that tittle is ridiculous. All the genius have one unique thing in common that naruto does not. That's the ability to learn quick and early in life... Naruto didn't.
Yeah.... Whatever. Naruto is not a genius just cause you want him to be. No matter what he achieve and accomplish.
