    When taking into account the entire arsenal of a shinobi, whose the best shinobi who has completely nothing that really gives them a boss summon/a lot of power and basically something really strong? (E.g. minato would not count because he has toad boss summon, as does Adult Konohamaru)

    Characters like Adult Shikamaru, Kakashi, Asuma, Mei, Yamato etc would count

    Suigetsu its a really strong character in this sense, he doesnt throw super powers but has a really cool assasination technique.

    Other characters such as Gai and rock lee also where made to fight fair and square, altought I admit sometimes the gate thingy gets a bit over wanked.

    Mei has some really OP powers, I believe her perfomance was underwhelming due to all the asspulls and hax that kishimoto kept giving to Madara.

    Tobirama and Ohnoki and those guys fit? Ohnoki can alter the wight behind his punches, so that is brute strength for me.
    I'd say the elite Hyugas..or shikamaru.
    Or maybe even Mei. Kakuzu fits for me.
    Kakashi if you consider his summons aren't combat type.
    I'd like to put Gai( same as Kakashi, his summon isn't a combat type) and Lee but they are already pretty Brute strengthish.... And the gates added makes it even more so I will not include them.

    I agree

    Ohnoki would indeed not fit btw
    His doton has some pretty powerful applications

    Yamato, since he's like a baby Hashirama, and has some solid feats/uses for his Wood Release.

    Hiruzen, able to hold off the 1st and 2nd Hokages when hes like 70 yrs old, had all the nature transformations, knew several secret clan techniques, very strong mind, and was taught under the 2nd. Even without his Enma summon he was solid.

    Raikage, Both previous and A, as both had broken lightning style, insane speed, and both have solid feats of tanking some legit hits.

    Tobirama, invented the flying raijin, trained several OG & OP characters, invented shadow clones, and Edo Tensei.

    Suigetsu is the best reluctant wingman to watch your back no matter how worthless you are. He's a legit utility player and a damn good one at that.

    He can use summons, but doesn't rely on them.

    Pretty much anyone with a wide variety of jutsu.
    So yeah, going with Kakashi, Yamato, Hashirama, Tobirama, Hiruzen, Minato, Akatsuki, Orochimaru, etc.

    According to the BD, Orochimaru heavily relies on ET. :catsmug
