    When Rock Lee and Gai made their 1st appearance there was this talking turtle...is Gai the turtle summoner?

    I know this is question wont lead to any real information but why would someone summon a turtle?..i mean a dog, a snake, a frog all make sense. but a turtle? and oh, tsunade's slug is probably the worst animal to be summoned (next to the turtle).

    are there any other jounins that can summon animals that havent been explicitly shown in the tv series so far?

    Well Guy hasn't summoned a turtle since then. But maybe that was just a flunky to the ultimate turtle that can be summoned.

    well, his turtle is a lot like Pakkun, Kakashis dog companion that he summons for tracking purposes. Hope this helped!!!

    Turtles are awesome, perhaps just used to wow the audience XDD. Um, maybe they're good for protection? What with their shells and all...or maybe not...I'm gonna shut up nows =P

    And just for the sake of it...Best summon so far has gotta be Temari's weasal XDD

    If he has signed a pact with the Turtles I would love to see Gai Summon a Big Ninja Turtle One day.

    How has the way Gai dresses or acts make sense? Gai is more of a "look at me" than someone who blends and follows the norm.

    the weasal has to be the most random thing that has happened on the show...plus why do weasals carry sickles to cut down trees? how do weasals fly?

    yea but all of gai's weirdness has some good reason (with exception to that bobble head haircut). but his suit is for super aerodynamics so he can konoha whirlwind kick in his sleep

    Wrong. You guys have to watch that episode again carefully. It is Gai that is the summon. The turtle is the one that summoned Gai.

    i really think that kishimoto just stuck the turtle in there as a little bit of irony since, a turtle is generally slow, while gai, is amazingly fast. it also ties into how lee is a hard worker and the saying 'slow and steady wins the race'. i think it's more of a symbol than it is a fighting machine, but who knows, maybe gai takes advantage of the turtles shell by hurling it's diamond hard carapace at enemies with his super strength. or maybe it's just a kicking post since normal tree trunks would not suffice in building up his strength.

    I think the question now is, will we ever see Guy summon a turtle again? Cuz I think it'd be interesting to see what a turtle can do in combat.

    I'm dissapointed at it's lack of appearance in the filler. Sure, give Anko a backstory, but the turtle-sensei get's jack.

    Never underestimate the power of a Summon that can Clone, Reconfigure, and Regenerate itself. Destructive Power isn't everything when it comes to a Ninja Summon.

    The Weasel with a Sickle is actually a common element in Japanese Folklore. It's often used to associate with powerful, destructive winds (check out the updated Bijuu Directory or for more details)

    To answer your question:
    Spoiler: Manga Spoiler
    I can't think of any large animal summon occuring in part 2 of the manga.


    Also, watch the multi-posting. Use the EDIT button instead.

    Well if Naruto's still a spoiler than I'd say Sarutobi has Enma the ape King.

    No way guys, watch that episode again. The turtle clearly summons Gai. Hence, Gai is a summon.

    The turtle is the PERFECT summon for gai. When you need to train but can't find any waits tell me how a dog or a giant frog is gonna help you. But a turtle! Now theres an animal to lift and train with. (No even Gai can't lift Gamabunta and start training).
