    Someone calls Sakura useless, then a few people come along and say something like "Sakura surpassed Tsunade in the war arc. She's the strongest Kunoichi in the series" and say nothing else.

    question mark¿ IIRC the only thing she did in the War arc besides healing, was use Tsunades healing(...) jutsu.

    Where do people get this idea that shes superior than Kurotsuchi, Hinabi, Hinata, Mei, and Tsunade in battle? I think its debatable if she can beat Temari


    :mako?¿ Did I miss some chapters? Where does this come from?

    Am inclined to say she can beat all kunoichi in naruto except kurotsuchi and maybe hinata due to her being the byakugan princess

    Idk about that. You have Hanabi, Hinata (Who has Hamura's chakra), and Kurotsuchi as well that could give her some serious trouble. And maybe even Temari as well.

    I don't want to see a bunch of headcannon in Vs threads. I just want to know where in the manga/anime does it state/show her doing something that leads many people to believe she's the strongest kunoichi :sphinx

    I know for a fact that Hanabi and Hinata are better at taijutsu then Sakura

    this is comparing Konoha's best taijutsu style to some random fist to cuffs

    but Sakura has other means for combat like summoning, etc...

    then again she isn't meant to be a fighter in the first place but a medic

    we saw with the SHIN fight that you can counter CES by parrying the wrists

    Nah, Kishi asspulled her into being the strongest Kunoichi based on this:
    - dodged Kaguya's chakra arms (for a couple of seconds) that were faster than Naruto/Sasuke
    - punched off Kaguya's horn that was sturdy enough to tank Bijuu-Rasenshuriken
    - iirc, Obito said Byakugou Sakura had more chakra than Naruto's 6 Paths Sage Mode clone that also had Tailed Beast Chakra

    Realistically, she should be NOWHERE at this level but muh team 7 parallels. :catdankv4:

    Seems like the common sense assumption. and Sakura surpassed her, meaning she'd now be the strongest.

    None of the other Kunoichi you listed (Mei, Hinata, Hanabi, Temari) are as powerful as Tsunade (only Mei even comes close) so they aren't even competition.

    Plus she was being compared to Naruto and Sasuke and managed to be relevant against Kaguya. Bullshit as some of that may seem, it still her being portrayed as head and shoulders above every other Kunoichi alive (probably even dead too.)

    that is kind of sad then since as shown via Gaiden (anime and manga)

    That SHIN>Sakura

    So SHIN is greater then all Kunoichi in the verse

    I think the problem lies in this statement. I know Chiyo and Kakashi in Kazekage Rescue Arc said that she has the potential to surpass Tsunade but those were merely predictions. Then we also have Hashirama saying that but he has never witnessed Tsunade on the battlefield so his statement doesn't have weight (he died when Tsunade was a toddler and she was cut in half when he said that).
    I know we're supposed to believe she surpassed her sensei since Naruto and Sasuke also did but meh...

    @Reviewing Logic Gaiden powerscaling is terrible. 11 year old Sarada is out here using CES combined with Sharingan with no training at all. :catflip

    This doesn't happen.
    And this is just reaching for feats. Kaguya's horn isn't relevant at all

    Spoiler:
    Naruto's clone pushes him and Sasuke away because they wouldn't be fast enough to dodge. Plus Naruto, who at that time was one of the fastest shinobi ever, said the arms are "insanely fast". I'm saying it's bullshit but you can't deny that it happened.
    eh, it does imo. also what about Sakura punching the ground in the war causing literal tons of debris to fly?

    Didn't she one shot him?:thunk

    He didn't even beat her in the second fight since Sasuke came in before it was concluded, and she wasn't even using Byakugo. He embarrassed Naruto and Sasuke at the same time so it's indeed sad as hell, just not for Sakura who had to save them. (Another thing that puts her head and shoulders above other Kunoichi.)

    Yeah, not the best execution on Kishi's part since he just made her a carbon copy skillset wise rather than succeed where Tsunade failed or get something new in addition to it.

    It's relevant because her horn like the rest of her body is ridiculously durable, and damaging her in any capacity isn't something any normal person should be capable of, let alone hitting her so hard she gets knocked down.

    Besides, it's not like any other female ninja could do it.:catshrug

    This has nothing to do with this topic. This is just about Sakura finally being able to fight alongside Sasuke and Naruto.
    You said she dodged them. She did not.
    Now you have something but she has been able to destroy the ground since the beginning of shippuden. We know she chakra enhanced strength

    The One Shot was a surprise attack

    and in the second bout be it or

    Shin never got hit, countered all attacks and had her stabbed with his numbing skrewers

    using byakugou, not using byakugou it was already check mate with the skewers that were known and shown to numb the body

    Sasuke had to rip them out on both accounts, post hitting Shin

    so yeah

    SHIN > every Kunoichi

    I said she dodged them for a couple of seconds, look at the second and fourth panel on the second page. we literally have 3 panels of her trying to escape Kaguya's arms. :hm
    but not on that scale. people were impressed when she destroyed the boulder in front of Akatsuki's cave but destroying tons of the ground is different and afaik we didn't see Tsunade doing something on that scale (her destroying the ground vs Oro/Kabuto is the only thing that comes close to it and that's still a fraction of the destruction Sakura caused)
    it took 8 Gates Guy to destroy a Madara horn so...

    She only had the knives in her arm which wouldn't cripple the rest of her body, and she's not in check if she's not even using her best technique (meaning she wasn't pushed to the point of needing it) and not in a position where she can't detend or counter.

    Was talking about when she showed up and saved Naruto and Sasuke.

    Pretty sure I didn't imagine her being physically unscathed after taking Naruto's Cho Bijuu Rasenshuriken.:hm

    Byakugou is just healing/regeneration right?

    Or does it also boost up speed and other abilities?

    Because if it is the former then I don't see why Shin won't still win

    He parried all of her CQC Taijutsu

    The only hit she got on him was a headbutt but as shown she can't add CES beyond her hands and feet

    Even with just hitting her arm we saw that when he activated the knives she instantly got/felt stunned to the point that she fell/collapsed

    Then Sasuke saved her

    So idk how byakugou will make this so called difference


    It would just extend the battle.

    She had the chance to use it

    She didn't; saying she could've or couldn't is just as speculative as saying why so and so didn't use such and such during this and that


    She had her fight with him and until a rematch she lost

    When was it ever confirmed that she surpassed Tsunade? All we've had are might's and maybe's which means it's up in the air.
