I know Naruto is the main character and all, but I think Neji, simply because he rules you all!!

Nah, Neji may be strong, but his thoughts are wrong. In fact, half of those guys on the list don't have any of the the ideas to become a good Hokage.

Neji - Because he thinks destiny's too predetermined...I know he's changed but still.
Chouji - Oh come on, no offense, but he's obsessed with eating, much like the rest of the Akimichi.
Shikamaru - One of the choices that's probably worthy. He's intelligent and quick to come up with a solution.
Kiba - Maybe this guy too, he's sort of like Naruto, cept much more Arrogant.
Sakura - I'll say nothing...which isn't a bad thing, but I still say nothing.
Naruto - He's got the spirit and the will and determenation to become Hokage. Not to mention he's actually pretty smart despite what most people think of him.
Lee - Even if he had what it needs to be Hokage, I don't think he wants it.

So I guess Naruto is the best choice in my opinion.

I think Shikamaru..mainly because people are thinking. "Oh, Naruto! He's the main character, it's got to happen!" Well, the Japanese are a little more open minded than Americans, it's not always a happy ending. I believe they'll make Shikamaru because he is probably the best fit. Though he is lazy, he is pretty strong, definitely very intelligent, and has near flawless tactics and strategy. He is basically a younger, not so strong, not a woman, Tsunade.

Well, there are many more i couldn't put on there. For example, the Chuunin and Jounin. If I had to pick from those, Iruka. And as for SHikamaru, he's too damn lazy. Reminds me of Tsunade from the episode after Sasuke left. He would fall asleep or skip out on work to watch the clouds. I could just imagine Kiba yelling at him like that guy (I suck at names. ^_^;; ) did at Tsundae. Neji may think destiny has a preset course, but that didn't stop him from fighting the Main House. Or from giving up when Kidomaru (?) had him beat. In short, Neji is the one real candidate for Hokage unless Shikamaru gets over his laziness.

You say Shikamaru reminds you of Tsunade...and guess who she is?

Uchiha Kaede
03-09-2005, 11:38 PM
... Neji, Chouji , Rock Lee , and Kiba cant be the next hokages, Kage is a villages No1 ultimate ninja isnt it? And these guys are specialists not all rounders,
Neji is like the best close range ninja
Chouji best physical i think
Rock lee - taijutsu and speed
Kiba = animality techniques
If you compare their skillz to the previouses im not sure they are close,
But all of these guys are strong though but not enough for title hokage,
The 3rd was hokage for knowing all the jutsus in konoha
Jiraiya was picked as hokage becuz he is also strong and taught the 4th hokage but he gave his position away to tsunade

um i dont know. all of them seem good. each person possess something unique in them.

but by watching the episodes, its still naruto. if it was someone else, it would make sense.

I'll admit you have a point, Kaede, but what does Tsunade have to offer aside from strength and healing abilities. Basically, she only got the position because Jiraya gave it to her and that the third was her grandfather.

The First was her grandfather and shes like the second strongest person in Konoha, thats why she was chosen.

Its going to be Naruto. Shikamaru, Chouji, Kiba, and Sakura are too weak. Lee is only good at Taijutsu, and Neji will probably be the Hyuuga clan leader. Beside, this show is about Naruto, hes always screaming about being Hokage. He probably will become it.

ok i see what u mean...i know that its not going to be this perfect episode where everyone gets what they want...actually im sure that by the end of the anime ill wish i never watched it bcoz the ending would suck i dont know what but its just a feeling, BUT still i think the whole theme of naruto is how if u realise shikamaru always tells him he can never be the guy who is the main character and how naruto always says he wants to be hokage, and the point is he will be and he probably will live up to be like yondaime as in be really young and bcome hokage and be really strong u know. so ya ofcourse no clue of what will happen but if anything im sure he will bcome hokage...but if anyone else bcomes hokage before him..i dont know really :D

There is no reason Neji can't be the next Hokage, we all assume Naruto will be Hokage oneday but that doesn't mean he has to be the next one, hopefully he is or that means Neji will have to die before Naruto can be.

Now, there are two things I must say:
1. Hokage=best ninja in Konoha, You are talking about kids, who, most of them, aren`t even chunins. I do belive you have to at least go up the ladder. As for Tsunade, excuse me but she and Jiraya and Orochimaru are the elite of the elite, so of course she deserved to be Hokage
2. A Hokage also means someone with a bit of a brain, to run the village, no one here is mature enough to do that

Conclusion: I voted for Naruto, but in some very distant future (many eps away), because he is the only one who really wants it, and thus he will do anything to get it.

03-11-2005, 06:31 PM
well i voted shikamaru, he has the brains for the job, <mind you im using their current abilties> naruto has the techniques, hes clever but shikamaru is more suited for the job

nma

[QUOTE=Nara Shikamaru]shikamaru has a good chance cause hes a genius..... but out of those id say Shikamaru is the most suitedfor the job. QUOTE]
Shikamaru is smart yes, but he's lacking in power. I don't think that he's strong enough to be a Hokage.

nma
03-11-2005, 07:23 PM
yes this is true but hes the best candidate for it all he really has to do is learn some jutsus and maybe train with JAiraya or someone like NAruto is doing and hes set while the others have to somehow attain a higher IQ which will be so much more troublesome...
But its like Neji said, not everyone can become Hokage. Shikamaru is smart, but intelligence can only take you so far. What could someone like Shikamaru do if the village was attacked by an Orochimaru or an Itachi? He's smart enough to run Konoha, but he isn't strong enough to protect it.

nma
03-11-2005, 08:45 PM
what would a guy like neji do? sasuke? rock lee?

they wouldn't let him be hokage if there were stronger people in the village the To-be hokages must undergo training like i said if the perverted hermit trained him he would be fit for hokage
These guys have the power to defend the village if its being attacked by someone of Itachi or Orochimaru's caliber. What could Shikamaru do against someone like that? And what do you mean 'under-go training'?

nma
03-11-2005, 09:33 PM
when i say under-go training i mean if he were to be trained in ninjutsu taijutsu or whatever like Naruto is doing with the ero-sannin he can have the power needed

if kakashi cant touch itachi why can neji rock lee or chouji,especially chouji, have the power to? Shikamaru would be able to devise plans for the characters like neji and rock lee and even help out himself (after training) while with neji rock Lee could only recklassly charge after them. Shikamaru can analyize and learn his opponents attacks through observation and even stop they're movement with the Kage mane no jutsu and allow others to be in position for attack or just strangle them with the same attack
Kakashi was matching Itachi blow for blow until Kurenai screw it up for him.

You're assuming that Shikamaru is the only one that will get stronger and smarter. Of course Itachi will pwn them now but they will get much stronger as they get older. Neji is genius, that means that not only is he narutally much stronger than most people, but also smarter than them. He won't just recklessly charge in, we've seen that he's just as good as Shikamaru at analyzing a situation. He can even rush in like an idiot if he wants to, he has the byakugan and can see if an attack coming from any direction and dogde it. And with his jyuuken, he could kill Itachi with one well placed hit. One. Lee has super speed and can open the gates. We've seen what a power up it gives him and we only saw him open up 5. He will get much stronger and faster in the future, I can guarantee faster than Itachi with his weights off and all his gates open. Chouji has no chance what so ever. The rest of the rookie 9 and Tenten have no chance of ever reaching the level that Naruto, Neji and Lee are at.

KyoichiKanami
03-11-2005, 10:00 PM
I based this thread on just what nma said.They will all get stronger, and Choji especially now that he has learned just what the pills can do. And most of them up there age geniuses in their own rights. i.e. Choji knows medicenes, TenTen is a weapon's genius, and Sakura can mold chakra the quickest.

sabakunoGaara
03-12-2005, 12:14 AM
u guys we all know that they will get so much stronger even the weak ones like sakura for example...manga readers spoling it for us already told us she gets so much stronger so she probably will get EVEN more by the time someone has to bcome hokage. but still im not defening sakura and i dont think that she or tenten have the chance to be hokages yet. and i think sasuke is really strong and smart and ofcourse i love him but i dont think he is hokage material...its not only abt strength its also wanting to be. like Jiraya everyone wanted him to be one but he was like no i dont want to be so they chose tsunade. so Naruto is the only one determined to be hokage and he likes it and he is strong and will be stronger so well i think he deserves to be one. shika is amazing and strong-ish and smart but he doesnt want to bcome hokage, well ok he never said it but im assuming that he doesnt want the responsibility. Neji he may or may not want to but i think he would actually deserve to be.
and kidistight- um neji doesnt have to die before naruto bcomes hokage there can be more than one hokage at a time...the 1st 2nd and 3rd were all together and the 3rd and the 4th were together so they can be hokages at the same time :)

Thank you sabakunogaara, I'm surprised someone actually took notice to one of my posts. But irregardless, nah...I'll actually be very amazed if Naruto becomes Hokage. He's got the potential, but the Kyuubi factor is going to get him. People may think he could go out of control or something, I don't know. I have more likely opinions, but it is too late and I am too tired to type.

To put it simply, he is the only one who wants to be Hokage, and he has the most potential out of anyone. (Kyuubi fox demon.)

putting aside the whole kakashi vs itachi things bcoz i have my own messed up theories abt that, i think naruto will become hokage for sure. but that doesnt mean he will be the 6th or the 7th for all i know...but he will be. but if i were to choose a hokage shikamaru out of the 9 rookies and Gai's team shikamaru would have been my first choice along with Neji. and its bcoz of what Nara said: he may not be the strongest one right now but his ability to devise plans and to be able to use each member's strongest talent...its just leadership abilities. about the strength issues..well i know he isnt the strongest but he isnt bad...although he once said he wouldnt fight chouji i dont think he is weaker than him...and i think he was handling tayuya pretty well for his level, so i think he is pretty strong he just doesnt show it. another thing becoming a chuunin means u have to take on missions be the leader and fight, why would EVERYONE think that he would be a worthy candidate if he is intelligent only? so i say it again he should be a hokage later but its just that it doesnt seem like a position he would accept...

mamapapa
03-19-2005, 08:37 AM
Ummm... we still can't say that none of them can become hokages. Uchiha Kaede noted above that kages are all rounders, but what we are picking on are kids. Im sure sarutubi wasn't an all rounder when he was still young...
I'm nt saying it's naruto ok? but it seems he's the one developing lots of skills right now. If he grows up, who knows what skills he will have right?
But right now, as kids, I think Shikamaru is the best hokage to be, he has very wise decision making and is calm in situations. Naruto now cannot control his temper, like when fighting kimimaru (i hate seeing naruto standing their like an idiot with all the stupid bunshins). Chouji, lets skip that. Rock lee, he's fit to become the hokage's guardian. the way he wants to protect. Coz if rock lee becomes hokage, whe're all doomed, what if strong enemies appear and all he could do is taijutsu and super speed?.... Kiba, he's temperamental. and he really didn't grow up that much. i would love to see akamaru fully grown though. Sakura, she still needs a lot of training and overcome her emotional issues. that's all.

mamapapa
03-19-2005, 08:42 AM
ah yeah, i was excluding the "old ones"...
speaking of old, Jiraiya would become a nice hokage even if he doesn't like the position.
Itachi was even cautious of him.

mamapapa
03-19-2005, 08:46 AM

KyoichiKanami
03-19-2005, 12:18 PM
This is the way I saw it. And it's like what Sabaku said. We can't base this on just intelligence or jutsu skills. I mean, in their own way, everyone of these people could become Hokage. Choji because he knows what the value of the villagers would be and wouldn't just let them die in a fight, Kiba because this is a forest village, and surely animals play at least a small role in forests, Lee because he knows the true value of hard work and what had to be done, Shikamaru because he's a very intelligent and can analyze any situation, Neji because he is down to earth, and knows that being a shinobi isn't all fun and games, Naruto because he wants to attain that rank no matter what, and Sakura because she...Um...Well, she's could anyway. The point is, with Hokage, you have to be an all arounder as a person. Not just as a shinobi. That's why I voted for Neji. Because he is a genius in that he knows the real world. He knows death, and knows killing, and knows just what it'll do to affect a person.

03-19-2005, 04:02 PM
Id say Naruto, because he has the determination and ability to not quit in any situation.. He only is strong when he fights to defend someone and usually he only fights when he is defending someone. He also resembles the 4th and has the power of the 4th. So yeah.

The deeper
03-21-2005, 10:22 PM
Becoming a hokage means you are ready to sacrifice to protect everyone in the village the only person who can sacrifice til the end is Naruto because he has the courage and the ability to become a hokage, also he has the power to motivate people, did u see how he helped Gaara, Neji, Konohamaru, Hinata, and everyone else to overcome their own problems? . Also don't forget the episode when neji tells naruto " You have a better eyes than mine, you the only one can help Sasuke". Hokage isn't only about the power , it is also about personality. :D

I really like Naruto, but at the present his state, He would be a terrible Hokage. Naruto is a strong ninja, no doubt about it, but the Hokage is the man in charge who makes the decisions in the village. It would be Shikamaru. Just because he's the most intelligent one there. Maybe when Naruto is older and wiser (probally not anymore mature) he will be smart enough to be Hokage.

Even though Naruto is the main character, and is my favourite character, I'm not sure whether he will have the ability to be Hokage. He's definitely got the determination, but so far he hasn't shown enough leadership and organisational skills. He's quite impulsive at times too. Hopefully he will mature.

i think neji presents the best mix of what would be needed to be a Hokage. He is smart, strong, and he makes use of strategy and his surroundings in battle.
