    The Akatsuki are members with specialist abilities.
    And Gai has gates, beast summon and dynamic entry, and mad tai jutsu.
    How do you think he'd fare in the Akatsuki?
    Would he be mid/high or low Akatsuki level, or would he even be able to make it into the Akatsuki?

    He would make it if they were a man short. But some members are stronger.

    Well, Itachi was scared of him, but Gai wasn't scared of Itachi.

    Gai is certainly uber enough to get in. Tobi got in. :oh

    I think he can easily best Kakuzu for speed and strength. He can hang, and with enough gates he can threaten top tier, but I don't think he has the seal knowledge to counter everything the Akatsuki could throw at him. Mid level seems about right.

    And he has yet to take his leg weights off. He'll get a boost like Lee, but on a much higher scale.

    Why do people keep saying Itachi was scared of Gai? There was no emotion in his face when he warned Kisame not to underestimate himHe wasn't rude to anyone or seem to put them down

    They are just saying it for whatever reason, but they know it isn't true.
    Kakashi confirmed it, it's proven fact Itachi didn't escape because of Gai.

    He'd get in if they were a man short. He's almost as strong as people like Deidara and Kisame but not quite.

    Low tier.
    His taijutsu is supreme, but IMO he isn't strong enough overall to be any higher.

    And as Seiko said, only if they were a man short.

    He is even weaker than the lowest tier that already exists. He'd have to use a shitload of gates just to reach the Deidara/Kisame tier.

    high in the middle imo.

    I think Gay is amazing, but I think he'll be in serious trouble when fighting an opponent like sasori.
    Though I think Itachi will eventually beat gai, or it will be a draw (8thgate).
    Tho my guess is IF he will fight Itachi ,Itachi tricked him in looking in his MS before he managed to ope the 8th gate.

    If he could use the 8 gates without without a major drawback (kind of like being limited to one 8th gate opening a day) then I'd put him mid to upper tier Akatsuki level.

    P.S Gai can take down the entire Akatsuki. "Whats that green flash coming at us at 3000m/h?!?!" "I don't know man, my 3 tomoe Sharingan can't see a thing!!!".

    Tobi>Gai.

    He wouldn't make it. Tobi obviously did somthing to the bijuu, Deidara's bomb couldn't have brought it down. Maybe if it #18, but I think Tobi landed some nice and strong hits.

    And Gai's Taijutsu would have like annoying like a finger flick(a weak one) to a bijuu, and 8 gates would just be like a light punch, like a friendly one.

    Gai lacks the power and Kage-level needed for Akatsuki. If he used Ninjutsu more, he might get in though. But Tobi's most likely better than Gai.

    Gai is a freight train, but he doesn't have a really cheap technique like everyone else in Akatsuki, so he'd be mid tier at best. Akatsuki's motto is the cheaper the better.

    Gai is great and all, but I think he would be a low tier member if anything. 30% Kisame was kicking the shit out of him.

    It would be extremely hard to cut it in Akatsuki with only Taijutsu. He would probably have to use 6-7 gates just to make his entrance.

    Gai is strong enough to fight with an Akatsuki member, but he isn't strong enough to get in Akatsuki, if you can see the difference there.

    His ability to really compete with the Akatsuki hinges on the upper gates, which can cause permanent damage and even death with the uppermost. His training allows him to fight 1 time at the Hokage level, and then he's dead. So while he could have a chance at killing most regular shinobi, he wouldn't be helpful at all capturing bijuuus, he wouldn't be good enough for the organization as an overall shinobi.

    Considering Akatsuki's lifestyle of fighting Bijuu, other kage level shinobi, jinchuuriki etc., not to mention whatever thier entrance exam is, he would be quickly pushed to his limits and beyond, and if not killed, then tossed aside by the organization.

    I think Gai is stronger than Tobi, that guy did like nothing. He ran like shit from that Bijuu.
