    Everyone should try this...

    Tell us who do you think is the best, or one of the best, characters in Naruto and why?... Not the Most Powerful, Not the Most Popular and Not your Favorite Character but who is Best as a Character.

    But here's the catch you cannot name a character in your; Username, Signature, or Profile Pic. (I know we've got some dedicated fanboys here on the Base, and I'm cool with that, if you love a character you should show it, I do even though no one knows him, but I also want people to really think on this question as what makes a good character, and what characters did Kishimoto write better than others.)

    -----

    I think one of the best characters is Rock Lee. He's simple, easy going, determined, goofy and he's a character that isn't complicated and doesn't need to be. Lee's simplicity makes him funnier than most characters because he's not in depth and doesn't fit to a strict character type. He's strong, powerful, has basic morals, is willing to sacrifice his well being for his friends.

    Lee's also a good balancing element to some darker stricter characters like Sasuke (Not picking on Sasuke, he's just a good example) who's character role involves many strict moves, nothing really radical or outside the box, Sasuke is an Avenger and takes down anyone in his way unless they're so far beneath him they don't matter. Lee never goes looking for a fight and other than what goes on in the moment he really has no ultimate plan. Lee will fight for his friends and fight when it is necessary, Sasuke goes hunting for his targets and rarely fights because it was unplanned. Lee has no real goals other than to be successful, while Sasuke has intricate plans for his future and works to make them happen.

    It's this element of simplicity within Lee that makes him a strong and well written character even though he gets very little screen time, and even though Lee is not in depth or extremely powerful he's still fun to watch and lightens the mood from a generally heavy and serious show.

    Re: Everyone should try this...

    Yeah I like Lee. Kakashi is actually pretty cool as well. I feel like Jiraiya shares good aspects as well.. especially with all his back stories. Oh and Part 1 Gaara. He's still cool but his old wicked self was awesome.

    Re: Everyone should try this...

    Sasuke. He is the closest to real life when it comes.to personality.

    Lee.because he showed us the importance of hard work.

    Gaara because he.showed us the importance of love.

    Nagato because he showed us the consequences of hate.

    One of those four.

    Re: Everyone should try this...

    I was going to say Madara , but I can't.
    I was going to say Obito, but I can't.
    I was going to say Itachi, but I can't.


    I guess that only leaves Nagato
    Why ? I like his complicated character he is also awesome as hell

    I think one of the best characters is Danzo. He's beyond "good" and "evil", you simply can't just call him one of those things. Hiruzen is good, Orochimaru is evil, Danzo is neither. He is both selfless and selfish. Kishi himself put it best: "A greedy dictator, or the noble personification of Shinobi?" He's the most real to me, what a real ninja would be. One of my favorite characters and easily one of Kishi's best ideas.

    I agree. It's lik every good intention is cancelled out by an evil deed, and the same vice versa.

    What do you mean Lee doesn't go looking for fights? Back before the chunin exams even started, he picked a fight against Sasuke.

    Anyway you might as well have picked Gai who is a pretty funny character.

    Jiraya
    He was funny, smart, and somehow a huge part of the story was about him. His death was very important for the story, without it Naruto would never have learned how to face true hatred, and Kishi showed this evolution in Naruto that was the final step to becoming the savior. Jiraya also gave the story something special. Not only was he even more powerful than Kakashi, he was also more perverted, and his 2 former students proved to have the greatest importance in the story.

    Just watch you pervy sage!
