    when Gai used the 8 gates techniqua against kisame, he opened 5 of 6 gates...

    why was he able to run away afterwards? shouldn't he be in alot of pain?

    Lee opened five and he was totally wasted... because it was stated that a 13-year old opening gates was uncommon/a first timer. He was not so developed then and his body coudn't sustain the damage. Gai is older and has been doing it for quite a time, he's expected to feel less pain/be more used to it.
    Spoiler: open if you saw Shippuden 16
    Anyway, in the anime you'll see that the strain of gates was added as filler... even as a pretty bad comedy relief

    Also, Gai opened the sixth gate, ("Hachimon Tonkou! Dairokku Keimon, kai!") Not just the fifth.

    6..

    it was indeed a small filler part, just saw the episode...
    really strange to see that he doesn't get affected by opening so many gates..
    wonder if we ever gonna see somebody ( gai/lee ) open all 8 gates..

    let's just hope tsunade or sakura is there to magically heal a dead person...

    They have always gone by the Protect Someone Precious rule. Gai opened gates to protect his students. Lee used the primary gates to do Omote Renge and protect Sakura, and secondary gates for Ura Renge and protect his nindo. So those are cases of dire measures to be taken, and thus gates should be used.

    ROTFL. Sasuketards...
    Fifth gate. Sand container turned cushion. Gate exhaustion. Jinchûriki.
    Do any of those four sentences add in your mind?
    Not sixth, seventh or eighth, damnit. Fifth.

    I made that comment before because, avatar-wise and speech-wise, you seem a Sasuketard. But I don't think many Sasuketards would steep that low as to question Gates' effectivity just because Lee pwned the Uchiha before the exams.
    Spoiler:
    Manga and anime have/will show that, no matter how dangerous, they are a desperate double-edged sword of an attack, but somehow VERY effective.

    It showed that gai was tired but you have to keep in mind that he is much older and expierienced so he can use them with less sideaffects.

    It's mostly because of how Gai didn't do much with that open. With Lee, he did very intensive movements with the gates open, like the Omote and Ura Renge. However, Gai only did Morning Peacock and nothing else with them open, with put much less of a strain on his body.

    And it's not the gates themselves that cause problems to the body. Opening the gates only releases the limits on the body and nothing else. If you do nothing with the gates open, then no harm will come to you, since you're not physically straining your body in any way by just having the gates open. All opening the gates does is release the limits and nothing more, so just releasing them doesn't cause any harm to you. It's what you do with them that matters.

    This is why Lee was so hurt, while Gai was not. Lee did very intensive moves with the gates open and pushed his body to its limits. However, Gai didn't do anything quite so intensive and didn't push his body so far. Thus, he was only tired, but not injured.

    Because you don't. You'll only die if you have the eight gate and push your body to the limits that the 8th gate lets you. Just like with all the other gates, opening the 8th gate would do nothing to you all by itself.

    Yeah the 8th gate would be pretty pointless if it killed you as soon as you opened it.

    So i guess there must be some level of using the 8th gate when your body just gets squished by its own strength!

    I think you are right tho, that all the gates do is remove limits on what you can do/how much strain you can put yourself under etc, so it makes sense that if you close your gates after only a short time you wont get so hurt.

    Hemm, you sir suck, maybe it is my Leetardness, but I think that No weighted Lee beating sasuke so easy makes you jelalous, and accept it, Chuunin exam sasuke was a piece of crap, and Drunk Lee could pwn him hands down, no gates needed.

    thus, I have wondered, do you imagine a No weight lee x Drunken mode x 5 Gates?

    lee was a genin who had never opened the gates before, gai is an elite jounin who has most likely opened the gates several times

    Activating the gates alone puts a heavy strain on your body...the 8th gate is no different. you'd have about a split second to attack before your heart explodes from it.

    Yes, maybe but not that short time, give it 10 minutes, to make some pwnage.
     
  25. Cair Guest

    It's kinda scary, knowing that both Lee and Gai could go over-the-top with their 'Protect Someone Precious' rule and open up the Gate o' Death. GAAH!

    The day Lee/Gai dies, the world will stop spinning.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing, how can he open 8 gates and not be injured, you could say "lee was weaker than Gai", but the gates go with percentage of the subjects strength, and 8 gates is 100% whilist 6 is about 70%, so even Gai should have had the same symptoms if not worse.

    guess another plot hole.

    When Gai opens his 8th gate which is called the Hell gate it will be the end of everything as we know it :oh

    The sky will be scorched just like in the matrix which will be the beginning of the era of Pwnage

    Gai is physically in an excellent shape and far more trained and experienced than lee in his taijutsu. He can take the strain of 6 gates far better than Lee and i think he would be only in a serious trouble if he opened number 7 and 8.

    i don't think gai used his strength to its fullest potential. i mean lee was extremely exhausted because he pushed his body beyond its limit. i think gai just used enough strength, enough for his body to handle without draining himself completely, to defeat kisame.

    But like HMnK and a bunch of others said, Gai has more experience with the Gates, while Lee has some, not much. Plus, Gai only performed the Morning Peacock, while Lee was ricocheting off of the walls, performed the Ura Renge, and so on. Lee just put a lot more strain on his muscles then Gai did, even though he managed to open the Gate of Joy.
