I think Kishi neglected him alot. He's a genius and he has a bloodline limit/doujutsu that was introduced as one of the strongest gifts in the ninja world. Neji should've had more screen time than alot of characters... But sadly, he didn't get what he deserves.
I was about to vote for Kakashi, but now I think I'll go with Neji.
This seems quite strange, i know. Maybe i'm misunderstanding the topic a bit. But in my opinion we have now seen, that the former kages of other villages were just total badasses. Also, like Neji, he was hyped as one of the strongest people who have ever lived. But his performance wasn't that good in comparison to what we see now. Yes, a lot of time has passed and the manga has changed. And yes, he fought against two former hokages ET (but their performance was also not as badass as someone would have thought).
In that fight against orochimaru his age was the reason for him losing that way. But look at tsuchikage? he still rocks despite his age with his awesome bloodline limit.
I would go with Kakashi here.
He is really the second strongest in the Village now after Jiraya's death, but not that many people accept that he is quite strong and capable as to take Tsunade or Gaara for example. The thing is that he might not be strong physically and has less chakra than the majority of other strong Shinobi, but he has tons of jutsu at his disposal and know how and when to use them properly. Also he has MS and he is good in Taijutsu and knows three elements of chakra.
Neji all the way, hailed in part 1 as a genius capable to destroy even another genius like Sasuke, he is now just another character, one of the many in the Narutoverse.
He may be the strongest in the Rookie 12 excluding Sasuke and Naruto, but he hardly even play that part, since from the rescue of Gaara he hadn't any screentime whatsoever, except the Zetsu stunt.
A shame really, since his treatment is condivided by the Byakugan, which is now the "useless" doujutsu
Neji...and if this one will be nominate a lot then...Shino.
Mifune..... I seriously did not think that Hanzo the great ninja would be beaten by samurai.
Shino. He hasn't been displayed much in all the 570 chapters we have had. Shino's team was one of the first to finish the chunin exam and we know out of the three Shino is definitely the strongest. He wasn't picked for the save sasuke mission when he clearly could have beaten at least 2 of the sound 4. Then we get just a few pages of him through part 2.
I know... she's useless...
But, she's not as useless as people think.
She's always been shown fighting people that are way stronger than her, and that's why she can't do shit against them.
But really, her arsenal and the way she can use all those weapons is enough to beat an army of fodder by herself.
I'll stand by this idea : Tenten is way more awesome than people think!
It's definitely Kakuzu. Was presented by Kishi as one a hell of a Shinobi, then later was abandoned by Kishi himself totally unfounded.
Tsunade... don't even have to think about this one.
Everyones just saying "Ohhh she's so useless, she's just Hokage because Jiraiya said so, she's just good for healing, all other Kages would kill her with ease anyway and blablabla"
NO! GODF***INGDAMNIT NO!! She's a legendary Sannin and she's Hokage for a reason... the Hokage is the one who's acknowledged as the strongest in the village... so if she's as sucky as everyone's saying then she'd be the leader of the Konoha Hospital or something like that... but not the freakin Hokage!
She was also confident enough to take on the Raikage... and gues what? SHE'S NOT STUPID! She'd know when she would be just a burden to everyone and she would stay out of it... this is not Sakura we are talking about!
-She's so strong she can jump and hurl around big ass swords which are probably as tall and heavy as a high-rise building... not even Raikages can do that! Heck... she can probably cause the same destruction Raikage's Liger Bomb does with just her index finger.
-She's got her medical Ninjutsu, so she can just tank and heal off otherwise crippling or even fatal injuries. Not to mention her instant regeneration stuff which makes her pretty much immortal for some time.
-Her snail, which is pretty much invulnerable, can spit around acid that's melting stuff even faster then Mei's Lava pukes.
-She's got will of fire, which is pretty much the biggest hax in the whole series... if you want evidence then just look what its doing for Naruto.
-Her Databook stats are only exceeded by the likes of Jiraiya and Itachi by a whooping 0,5 points.
So yeah... my point is: PEOPLE SHOULD STOP MAKING A F***ING SENZU BEAN OUT OF HER!! That role goes to Karin... and Karin alone, because Sakura can't even do that... she's at Medikit level at best... although I'd admit its a pretty good Medikit... but not Senzu Bean level!

I was going to nominate Gai because even though he gets page time, he is always looked behind Kakashi but Gai has shown he can take on Itachi maybe not seriously but he handled Kisame and is now holding his own in the current arc despite being painted as a beast idiot...
However, I will nominate Tsunade as Rash won me over because that goes to show you how underrated she is that I didn't even think of her to begin with until Rash brought her to the surface here.
