    "The best of Root" my ass. Such disappointment. Especially Fuu. He deserves a... special punishment :hurr :hurr :hurr

    Spoiler:
    I usually keep my expectations low so idk. But Neji could certainly use more screentime before dying :catshivers

    in no particular order

    Hanzo.

    the hype about him was insane at first, and I was expecting him to be extremely powerful, but he ended up "meh" power-wise. Seeing
    his battle against Mifune.

    Samui


    I remember the expectations about her at that time was that she is around Kakashi's level at least, but then we got nothing.

    Fun and toruni (or whatever his name was).

    weren't so special.

    I was disappointed in the 7 swordsmen and the KKG users.

    4th Kazekage- Rasa

    Danzo, I think he was pathetic.
    Hiruzen was "meh"
    Kinkaku & Ginkkau weren't all that much either


    Dan, ultimately did nothing
    Oro was pathetic for the most part
    Mei, the Mizukage

    and maybe some more here and there... :hm

    Sai, Yamato and Orochimaru. I thought Orochimaru would have a more pronounced role in the new series. The anime made good use of him, but I thought the manga would also offer something more with a few years in now.

    Fuu's death was brutal smh. Didn't like it, since we don't get to see side characters take charge often.

    You really expected a female who had bigger tits than Tsunade to be as strong as Kakashi? :dafuq

    Yes, yes it was :hurr My faves have a tendency to die brutal deaths. I'm fairly convinced by now that it's some fetish thing :catshivers

    In all honestly, even though I (inexplicably) started loving Fuu from the moment I first saw him, I also thought to myself that he was definitely doomed. So his death didn't faze me too much, and neither did the fact that he was so unimpressive. He was special to me from the very beginning so I didn't mind him being a flop :catsadfeels

    I guess Hanzo, but he's not as bad as he could be, looking at some characters. I'm not going to name any name though.

    Neji and Rock Lee were both top contenders to be Naruto/Sasuke/Gaaras peers for quite some time down the road but they just fell off HARD. Real disappointed tbh...BoS gaara would manhandle a team of Neji AND Lee with pretty much no diff. Dude made Kage level before the other 2 could even blink and left them in his dust from that moment on.

    Not really a letdown considering the shit he accomplished when he showed up in the War arc, but I kinda wish Tobirama was more than a Minato clone wannabe...

    Also truth :mjlol

    I don't believe she has bigger bust than Tsunade.

    OT: I was very disappointed by Orochimaru.

    Kurenai (as good at genjutsu as Itachi "takes opponent's to a place far beyond genjutsu" gets hit in the uterus and never recovers)

    Mei (op jutsu that can melt Susano'o, Kage level chakra for large scale spam, always has allies hanging around and can never use her acid spam, gets slapped by Susano'o)

    Hiashi (leader of strongest clan in Konoha, secretly knows about Kaguya and Otsutsuki before anyone else, OP taijutsu style, exists 99% offscreen with no direct references to power level or skill)

    Neji

    Rock Lee

    Shikamaru

    Kiba

    Chouji

    That whole SRA retrieval squad was a flop basically..

    At least Gaara made it somewhere..

    But mostly because Naruto and Sasuke became so OP ...

    So many that the others here have stated
    -Lee
    -Hiruzen
    -Neji
    -Orochimaru
    -7 Swordsman
    -Sai (how the hell did he really think he could take out Sasuke?)
    -Konahamaru (he reached his peak as a 10yo or however old he was in the pain arc sadly)
    -Shisui (being itachi's mentor was pretty bold then nothing really ever happend with that. turns out we never saw anything from him so by feats he was weak as shit)

    I'm not gonna sit here arguing fictional busts sizes but I think they are as close....



    Pretty sure Kishimoto knows only 2 sizes: Flat, and super big.

    No one said Shizune yet.... Oh well

    I thought she was gonna be some tactical Jonin who poisons enemies here and there and would provide long range jutsus to assist Tsunade who is a melee type......

    And she only became Tonton's babysitter ever since that Kabuto fight.... Which reminds me of another one......

    Anko... She looked really badass... Gets turned into Kabuto's personal slave in a comatose.Orochimaru really wasted a curse mark on that one

    Tomato was supposed to be the second coming of Harashima. Turns out Kishimoto created him so that Kakashi wouldn't have to job to the Sauce.
