    I recently started watching db and I came across an episode called The Rampage Of Inoshikacho
    Seeing how Kishimoto is inspired by dragonball...
    Is it just a coincedence or...?

    Actually.

    ""Ino-Shika-Cho" is a winning combination in Hanafuda.

    Hanafuda (花札) is Japanese flower cards, and a card game which evolved from Western playing cards."

    Thanks to Wikipedia for that.

    I think it is a strong possibility that Kishimoto got ideas from Dragonball and other series as well. I came across two other Anime shows that I found interesting as well:

    Kabuto (OVA): Kabuto is a tengu (reminded me of the Tengu theory on this forum), who has to save a princess from fortress which is full of monster-mecha hybrids in an alternate reality of feudal Japan.

    And this one I found really funny in coincidence:

    Hyper Police (TV): This anime series has a Kyuubi fox demon named Sakura. :laugh

    Kabuto is a pokemon! lol

    But yeah that inoshikacho thing is apparently from a game, which someone stated. I read it long a go on the Wikipedia site since I have nothing better to do then read about naruto all day. =(

    Kabuto is the name of the Helmet Samurai wear, the Kyuubi and other tailed beasts are common in Japanese folklore and Sakura is a very very common girl's name.

    That's what first crossed my mind when I saw Kabuto.

    it might be from a game, but I don't think an avid dragonballfan like Kishimoto would something like that slip by his radar. That episode is probably one of his favorites.
