    Who is the worst of the 9 konoha rookies and why?

    First id say Chouji, but then i think about Ino who has like one jutsu and Chouji could plow her with the Meatball no jutsu before she could pull off the Mind trick.

    Post who you think!

    I think it's generally accepted by most logical people that Ino and Sakura are tied for that position throughout part 1.

    No, I would say Ino is weaker. She is usless without the other members of Ino-Shika-Chou. Sakura however, while Naruto and Sasuke were out cold she set traps, and she was smart enough to decieve Zaku with a very clever move.

    She was smart enough to trap Sakura, and she caught Kin whereas Kin caught Sakura. From what we've seen, they're probably the most dead even of any two, to the extent that they double KOed each other.

    Ino didn't have a chance away from her team to really show off much, but if anything, she's slightly better than Sakura because she actually has a special jutsu whereas Sakura had 0 special jutsu(albeit it's useless for fighting).

    Hinata... and I think this was stated somewhere.

    But this is why she states that she wants to change. And she will in due time.

    Meanwhile, she's got two guys on her team who want to protect her. And Neji now too. ^_^

    She'll learn to stand on her own though. Which is why I can't wait till Kishi writes more.

    Sakura, clearly.

    Atleast Ino got body swap, Sakura is all around worthless. If you don't count plot backing + will of fire, which we do not because this is battledome.

    TenTen and Hinata are both on a level above them.

    Ten-Ten and Hinata are actually pretty strong it was just that they faced thier worst possible opponets.Sakura is the worst.She really doesn't have anything special about her that any other ninja couldn't do.

    I dont hate neather one but Hinata is not the weakist. Did you not see how much she grew? She trains by fighting Shino and Kiba AT THE SAME TIME!!! And wants to keep going when they tell her to stop! Not only that she did beat a Jounnin and even thogh it was a filler it still happend.

    Hinata is prolly the second strongest of the girls I think. The weakest would be Ino and Sakura. Ten-ten just got a bad match up I think. Her style of fights plays right into Temari's style.

    I'd have to agree with the Sakura thing, but I also think Ino wasn't far behind her.

    I'd have to say Sakura, she's completely useless and has no special jutsus. She only has basic techniques, while everyone else has some special moves in addition to those basic techniques.

    I say Sakura was the weakest. Ino was atleast helpful to her team. Sakura always held people back. Also, the only way she tied with Ino is because of her stupid "Inner Sakura"

    Well actually, Hinata was stronger than both of them. Sakura knew no jutsus of any kind (besides replacement) and fought with kunai and traps.

    Hinata is an effective scout and can hold her own in a fight with her deadly fighting style. She is useful on a team, but also able to fight independently.

    Ino is only useful on a team, or a fight when you can forfeit...

    Wait, does this have to be during the Chuunin exames, or where the dubbed version is now? Because if it is later on in the anime, Sakura has learned her healing and the fancy chakra control that makes it look like she is incredibley strong.

    Also, Hinata is not weak, just read what people have said and you'll get it. TenTen is not weak either, she has an unlimited arsenal of weapons, ranged and close ranged, and she knows how to use them well.

    Temari had an advantage over TenTen. Temari could blow weapons away. That is why TenTen lost. Anybody else, she might have won.

    I see most people, including me, agree Sakura and Ino are weakest. Sakura - sucks at taijutsu, and doesn't know any jutsus above E rank.
    Ino- sucks at taijutsu, genjutsu and ninjutsu. Her only ninjutsu is so crappy that even Sakura (see her description above) could break.

    Easily Sakura she had no abilities as a ninja the few techniques she did took her a while to make and were incredbly easy moves that even Naruto who was considered a failure could do without handseals.

    example: when she used replacement jutsu

    Ino is second worst only superior to Sakura because she can do the mind replacement jutsu.

    I don't believe Tenten and Hinata where bad ninjas they just have incredibly bad match ups in their matches; Tenten as Temari could blow away weapons, and Hinata because Neji was easily the strongest or second strongest genin out of the bunch.

    ino is the worst, you have to look at it like this. Sakura is the smartest ninja, she may not be the most talented but what she lacks in talent she makes up for in intellgence. Ino isnt even smart and all her techniques are mediocre.

    There's no way it can be Hinata because she took hit after hit from Neji and how long would Ino/Sakura last wit Neji? Neji would not even have to run and one hit both of them....plus Hinata's got that ultimate defense. gotta give her props for creating her own ultimate defense.
