    What skills, abilities, or justu did you figure a character would have before they showed anything, and were proven wrong?

    For instance, I thought that Sai would be more like a Haku-type of ninja with cool assassin skills.

    I thought Tenten would be the Chun Li of the manga.

    I thought Hidan would have more versatile voodoo jutsu. Like puppet dolls or some shit.

    I thought the juubi's eye would possess all mangekyou and rinnegan techniques.

    I thought Madara would actually have some MS techniques other than susanoo.

    I thought Sasuke would have tsukuyomi after transplanting Itachi's eyes.

    Etc...

    I expected more from Fuu and Torune since they were supposed to be the best in Root. Nothing in particular, just more stuff.

    I thought Naruto would have learned FTG by now but nope.

    Was expecting Minato to show some NR but no.

    Was expecting to see Madara's MS abilities in war. But no.

    And so on.

    Same

    But u never know cuz it could be like Naruto’s case where Minato and Kushina put their chakra into Naruto and it stayed for a long time until it “activated”

    But that theory’s honestly just wishful thinking

    I’d expect minato to teach kakashi FTG or kakashi to have decent skill in FTG

    Maybe a weaker version where he can only teleport himself or something like it drains his chakra more since he’s not as skilled with it/has limited uses of it

    Honestly if Kakashi could learn FTG to the point of Tobirama/Minatos skill with it then he’d basically have an effective substitute for Kamui but I don’t think he’s enough of a sensor type to master it that far. Then again, he used 3T/MS better than a vast majority of the Uchiha clan so idk.

    I expected the Edo Tenseis to be more impactful.

    Overall, i guess they were impactful.

    But individually speaking, they all were kind of just mini bosses.

    I did not get too hyped after seeing how every fight was "Guess the gimmick" and then that persons defeated.

    That said Edo tensai does carry most of the war arc by itself. Every notable event before Tobi takes the field is related to Edo tensai and even in the fight against him Tobi uses Edo tensai zombies in order to make full use of the rinnegan and stolen tailed beasts.

    I think my issue isn't that it wasn't impactful.

    But it wasn't as hyped as I thought it'd be.

    Most of the zombies were as i've said.

    "What's the gimmick?"

    "This guy has a clam that does illusions!"
    "This guy does wordplay!"
    "This guy is a puppet inside a puppet!"
    "This guy breathes poison, has poison in his stomach and has a salamander that does poison stuff. Heyo."

    It was bringing back all these legends that had hype, but that's about it. They were almost ALL fodder.
    They were tools for whoever's alive character progression.

    Not that I'd know how to make them more hyped.

    Then again, I read the manga and most were taken down off screen, so maybe that's my personal fault.

    I thought Rock Lee would have different eight gates abbilities, just like @Jad and i predicted
    I thought Neji would have another byakugan upgrade, like MS but for byakugan, and no, i'm not counting the tensengai shit.

    I thought Gaara would have something better than just more stamina and sand attack variations, tbh gaara deserved better.
