i couldn't find a topic like so, so inform me n close this if there is already. during the battle right after the chuunin exam, it was stated by someone that gaara was the sand's trumpcard. how could gaara have been the sand's trumpcard? for gaara's ability on his own, obviously theres no way..gai easily defeated his desert coffin thing during the prelims to save lee. ok, so the monster.. naruto beat him. naruto was even to him. if jiraiya was to fight him, it woulda been over even faster since he was better with gama bunta. i guess if no one in the village could summon gama or the boss of any of the summons, htat sand monster would be able to destroy something...but with all the geniuses in the village of konoha..i doubt he'd get very far. another question.. if gai defeated gaara's jutsu that easily, and lee almost beat gaara, how can no one in the whole entire sand country kill gaara? i mean, is the country that weak? that a genin in konoha could do more damage on gaara than anyone in the sand?
