    Consider the various bonds that exist between characters, whether for their type, form, strength or whatever else you value in a bond

    Which are your favorite, least favorite and why?

    Would you rank them or do you see that as being against the nature of bonds?

    Overall, rank them.
    Whether they be bonds of friendship, love; hate or whatever else

    Lots of bonds in this series that are fun to see play out.

    I like the teachers' bonds, Iruka, Kakashi, Jiraiya, Yamato. It's subtle and not made into a big thing. But I like whenever the teachers get together to chat about their students. They each have their own way of teaching, and each show their pride and annoyances in a different way. But it's fun to see them reflect on the kids' progress in between arcs.

    The videogames also did these kinds of relationships pretty well. Giving screentime to bonds we don't get to see much of in the manga/anime.

    Sai's relationship with his friends is interesting to me.

    But my favourite is and will always be Shikamaru and Naruto's friendship though.

    Favorites are probably bro - bro and student - teacher

    Hiruzen/ Danzo - I like it cause they are different as Heaven and Hell but they ultimately had the same goal. And those Danzo's last word always cut deep. "Hiruzen, what was I to you?"

    Kakashi/ Gai - They are just good pals and funny as hell

    Obito/ Kakashi - They both went through hard times on their own, weren't exactly friends bur became mates in the end

    Jiraiya/ Naruto - Common

    Gai/ Lee - It was nice to see Gai going to such high lengths to let Lee chase his dreams

    Least favorite is definetely Sasuke/ Naruto cause it became annyoing over time and Sakura/ Sasuke cause she was just stupid there. Take a hint woman.

    Last time I checked , madara is not a cuck who jobs to each villain to hype up hashiramas new powerup



    I have come to realize that the goku vegeta rivalry is an absolute joke. There's no hope for competition when they aren't in the same tier lol.. Watch vegeta job to broly and goku get a new powerup

    At least Vegeta gets cucked by villains stronger then him and most of time fights people strong as himself or stronger.

    Only thing Madara does best bully people weaker then him and then get turned into a women.

    Madara is basically that big guy in school who picks on smaller kids.

    I can't think of a single bond in this series that didn't turn out stupid in the end :kanyeshrug.
    Yeah instead of Madara being a cuck who jobs, his whole life is spent being a cuck. Dude can't even win against Hashirama with the strongest being in the verse helping him out and literally has to suck on him to win:hestonpls. His "rivalry" ain't that much better than Vegeta by a long shot.

    Vegeta crushed Goku... literally with his own power.

    Unlike Madara.

    Not when its Vegeta who starts the fights.

    One of my favourite bonds is between Team Taka, if I'm honest. They started out with grudges galore and the most precarious state of agreement, and then became so close that they were all willing to risk their lives to protect Sasuke and each other. And they chose that, and he chose them. It wasn't assigned to them by somebody else deciding what team you've gotta be on. They could have left, too, but they didn't, even after their one mission as Hebi, their stated team purpose, was completed.

    Shame they got left behind in favour of 'woo Team Seven forever amirite' nonsense...

    As the TC I'm probably expected to have the coolest answer but . . .

    I liked the bond between Sai and his brother

    I won't even bother with the winded explanation, just that it's the one that moves me the most

    DO you even think when you talk? What domestic abuse? Do you even know the meaning of domestic abuse? :confusedjr


    Last time I checked, being shy was not stalking

    Favourite Bond:

    Kiba and Akamaru - Just a loving Boy and his dog (the most loyal creatures on earth). Nothing more precious than that.

    Least Favourite Bond:

    Naruto and Sasuke - The most focused and nonsensical bond of the franchise and possibly all of Shonen. They were never friends nor were they true rivals. One the most forced bonds ever and is a major factor for why the story was so terrible, especially in the second half.

    As the others said, the mentor-student relationship seems to be the most powerful bonds in the story. Families are also extremely important. Naruto meeting his mother comes to mind, as well as his relationship to Jiraiya. Sasuke's story is darkly embedded in the loss of his ties.

    Pairings sadly are the relationships that do not work for me. While I like Boruto and Sarada, I detest how the story was written for the parents of the later character.

    I've been enjoying the Boruto relationships more, and to add to that, the parent-child relationships.

    Honestly looking back, I don't really care about any characters with their bonds.

    I really liked Naruto and Jiraiy, but quite frankly there was some continuity issues with Naruto never getting a visit by him once until the Chunin Examinations. Which makes it feel sour (plus Jiraiya is never mentioned since!).

    Never cared about Itachi or Sasuke's "bond" either.

    OG T7 was laughable at best... Forgettable at their worst.

    Naruto and Sasuke's bond is the biggest joke of the franchise, even.

    Yeah I really don't care about the Naruto franchise like I thought I did. Even my OG pairing, I could care less.

    Not hating it's just that... I don't care that much. Kishimoto didn't care, so why should I?

    I only feel something about the "Naruto" series when I think about how far Naruto has come, and seeing that reflect on his children.

    Naruto and Gaara

    In OG Naruto, the Naruto and Iruka's bond is honestly the most well written in the series and Kishimoto being Kishimoto basically cut out that aspect from Naruto's life until their single scene in the war arc because "muh Naruto and Sasuke brotherly bond of fate and destiny".
