Not including the God tier guys e.g Naruto, Sasuke or the Top tier guys e.g Kakashi, Gai, Tsunade, I would say Choji isn't like the rest of the Rookies and he can kick ass.
I feel like I'm one of the few ppl pleased with Choji becoming a Top level ninja lol.
Neji I think could, he was the only Jonin at the start of Part II after all...
Shino would kill him probably. Hiashi, Choza, Shino's dad Shibi.
Now without God tier and Top tier that isn't many. Choji is pretty up there now.
I was thinking that myself but wasn't sure. You're probably right.
Neji can hit Shino from a distance now with Gentle fist so he can still shut down Shino's chakra points from far.
They are here now, but, this raises another question. WHERE THE HELL IS NEJI ?
If this was before the Pein arc, I would agree with you, the Pein arc and the War arc though destroyed its character for me, he lost everything good and became a worthless fatass blessed by the author.Quote:
To think that Kakashi died because of him
Imo he's stronger than his father, as well as Aburames, since they would need to cover someone the size of a giant summon, and at least one on one I don't think they have enough bugsQuote:
Hyuugas are the worst match-up fro Taijutsu users, and Hinata was showed in this war to be more impressive than Neji ( same combat abilities, more endurance and, from what we know, her Byakugan's range is higher than Neji's ), meaning Kiba gets fodderized.Quote:
Same with Sakura, I guess, a punch would make Akamaru explode.
Agree on the Shino/Neji thing
Kishi must have gotten so many complaints at that he just had to revive Kakashi haha.
But then again, can't Shino lock off a vital chakra point or something? Like how he defeated Kankuro?
Gosh... Shino was just so awesome.
He was the only person besides Naruto who he somewhat respected amongst the rookies thinking back to when he and Sasuke were chasing Temari and Kankuro.
Simply because currently only Neji can hit pin point Gentle fist shots at people from a long distance away, I would say he kicks her ass.
Whilst Akamaru would die the moment Sakura lands a punch, what about he and Kiba's two-headed wolf thing?
I mean yeah they're fodderized but that technique would be awesome at by now.
Surely it's two fast for Sakura react to? Same with Hinata.
So Ino is now the bottom of the rookies then?

When you're with Kakashi, up against Hidan and Kakuzu who if you take away their immortal aspects to them, Kakashi could kill 'em both rather quickly, I expect Shikamaru to catch Hidan in a Shadow jutsu trap comfortably.
Though one-on-one, Shikamaru would have died sure, and although I want to defend he doesn't have much going for him besides being really quick and being a genius. Quite a shame.
So you guys are debating who is the biggest fodder of them all?
his father and Kakashi sacrificed their lives for him, and that useless fatass couldn't even run fast enough to dodge a single attack from a dying Pein?
We saw against Obito that insects can cover an area slighty bigger than a human body, and probably Chouji's pinky is the size of a human bodyQuote:
Well Sasuke respected him probably because he was the only guy that wasn't either a fool or a pain in the butt, he probably would've said the same thing to, say, Shikamaru
If you are talking about the Vacuum palm, Hinata can do it as well ( they did it back to back against the Zetsus ).Quote:
Sakura one-shotted a boss-sized Summon during the Pein arc, that doggy wouldn't be a problem.
As for Hinata, she can shut him off before it launches its attack, and her Byakugan could enable her to dodge Akamaru's piss ( lol ).
Actually its Tenten imo, Ino showed pretty good feats like controlling quickly and effortlessy more than one body, meaning she could easily turn Kiba against Akamaru or viceversa
You mean diverting the Bijubeam? Neah Naruto's plot no jutsu would have stoped it somehow.
What's just as strong is his talk no jutsu.
His talk no jutsu is so strong Kakashi and Shizune ended up getting brought back to life as a result.
The thing is, Ino and Hinata did just divert a beam. Mainly Ino. She gets props.
So after the last chapter, the rookies didn't do much as the fodder took center stage in Shikadad's plan.
It feels like Kishi might be cleansing the battlefield. After a bunch of ninja get wiped out, the rookies move into the spotlight. Madara is going to kill, and the only thing more powerful than him is the rookie's plot shields. Madara can wipe out 10,000 ninja, but he can't kill Rock Lee and the others The K11 are the true immortals.
I can also see Shikaku losing contact with the army forcing Shikamaru to take over. Ino's dad probably reached his limit.

Is Shikamaru more clever than his dad? Although his dad is clearly a ridiculous genius.
Shikamaru being far cleverer than Minato sounds a bit off but I can't disprove it I guess.
And maybe you're right. Shikamaru is more clever than minato. He was clever enough to find the weakness of hidan's jutsu and how to kill him in, let me say, 5 minutes? While minato find the weakness of obito's jutsu and kakashi's jutsu in , watevah.
But overall, shikamaru is way way way way smarter and cleverer than minato.
I don't think so. And she showed here she can possess two bodies, meaning she can likely possess both of them.
Ino's jutsu is pretty good is you see past the barrier "woman in Kishi's universe"
