just listing no rating, coz everyone of em is too individual
4. Chikamaru-if not in jutsu, but in combat strategy only a few can match his creativity and intelligence, and i bet once he has more experience he'll be that best strategist EVER
5. Madara and his brother
(6. Sasuke and Itachi, though teached by uber-masterminds they have developed jutsu, fighting style that i would call genius.)
Based on everything that I have seen, nothing in Naruto can compare with that time when Tsunade handycaped Kabuto. To figure out how to move and attack in such a short amount of time...
the greatest genius in naruto is the first. He defeated the most powerful uchiha in his prime. and if he came up with a new technique for the MS it wasn't a factor for the first.
i think we still know too little of the 1st especially not about the fight...Quote:
I thinks Shodai could have been a genius considering he had mokuton and was able to defeat Madara, but that fight could have been the worst fight possible for Madara. Madara could have had a weakness to Shodai's techniques or something. But Shodai is still a genius, but I still think Naruto is the greatest.
besides the 2st i would say kakashi. developing the MS and he is not even a uchiha.
I'd say in terms of straight greatest genius, it'd be Shikamaru. He came up with the plan to take down two Akatsuki members simultaneously. In terms of Naruto's use of genius...I don't know. I'd say Pein because right now, he's probably the most powerful person in the Naruto universe.
Sure, other characters had their moments, and there are a couple of other geniuses in Naruto. Well, there's a whole bunch of them. Persons like, First, Second and Fourth Hokage shouldn't be counted, since we haven't really seen some examples of their genius.
I have high hopes for Kabuto. He's a medical genius, has an extensive knowledge, thinks and reacts really fast.
So, as I said before, nothing that I have actually seen in manga can compare with this.
But if you look at it that way, than the biggest genius in Naruto is the guy with Rinnegan that created jutsus in the first place.
We should really limit this to people who are part of the cast now.
There are plenty of natural geniuses but the people who are more of a genius than the regular geniuses are the people with a certain handicap and happen to still stay powerful i.e, Rock lee,kakashi, and nobody else. the hokages are dead. everyone else has their own natural skill but these people have a disadvantage but are still very strong. Naruto has the kyuubi so regardless of the fact he has no talent the kyuubi will not let him die.
What is this certain handicap that Kakashi has ? Naruto does have the Kyuubi, but that does not mean he has no talent. It was all him that mastered the Rasengan in three days, it was all him that created the Odama rasengan, it was all him that created an elemental Rasengan which Minato nor Kakashi could do. Also Jiraiya says that teaching Naruto is like teaching Minato, who is a rare genius, I think that certainly means that Naruto has more than enough talent.
