1.Variety in attack by tweaking basic attacks(i.e.Naruto)
2.Variety by difference in basic attacks and then tweaking them(i.e Kakashi, Hiruzen)
The thing is, we haven't shed much light on Kakashi or Hiruzen in their range.Hell, we've seen Hiruzen at the end of his life, so I can't accept he can manipulate just fire and earth. Those were the most effective counters for edo-Tobirama and edo-Hashirama at that moment.
And if we take it literally about Kakashi having mastered over a 1000 jutsu with over 4 different release styles, he is leagues above Naruto in range whichever definition of versatility you choose.
If we just look at Kage Bunshin, we'll see that Naruto has found a way to use it that would fit under this definition of "versatile".Quote:
Of course Itachi, Hiruzen, Hashirama, Kakashi are versatile. They've shown that. We've seen that. To say otherwise is being silly for the purposes of elevating the main character, which really doesn't need to happen, because Naruto has shown versatility, too.
That said, I still don't think Naruto is the most versatile shinobi.

With what Naruto has, he do very well for himself.
'Might' is not going to cut it. When Naruto start using these said techniques then you can use them. Amaterasu is enton so he has that element.
Naruto was NEVER versatile. Even now, the only long-range attack he has is FRS in Sage Mode. Naruto is primarily a close-ranged powerhouse, that's all he's good for. Even his ability to sense comes from Sage Mode or Kyuubi, not in base mode. you don't send Naruto out there to plan, you send him out there to fight and take out enemies. Naruto has not shown the ability to ambush or track anyone... only time he's shown ability to track was when he saw some carnage those two mercenaries caused on their way to Inari's house.

I'm talking about Naruto without Sage Mode or Kyuubi mode. Kyuubi isn't his own power, and Sage Mode could leave Naruto vulnerable. Fact is, he needs either mode to be a little bit versatile.

I don't see naruto without the kyubi or sage mode, so lets just put it under his abilities. He's the one manipulating the chakra. and the chakra is on his body, he's the only one capable of perfect resonance with kurama.
it does not mater how much you say it, without the kyubi and without sage mode, its not going to avoid that fact that he still has it, and that everyone who is arguing about naruto and his abilities will always say those two.

Even those modes his versatility is very limited.
