    Which characters, as individual living beings, are underrated?

    For me, I'd say the Sound Trio from CE

    Consider:
    - had dreams
    - had ideals (ultimate dreams)
    - worked for them
    - took given opportunities
    - their styles showed great intelligence etc

    Its just unfortunate that their biggest opportunity came at the hands of 'that Great Serpent' Orochimaru. Otherwise, I think they were well made characters

    Who would y'all nominate and why?

    With this in mind:


    And/or however you rate characters

    Also, do you think leeway should be made for author bias?

    There are no best tier in Naruto IMO.
    Naruto is high tier.
    Sasuke is good tier, as well as Gaara and Itachi.
    Sakura is mediocre tier.
    Most of the rookies are shit tier like Rock Lee, Shino, Ino ... Except Shikamaru and Neji who are good tier.

    Honestly I dunno. Side characters aren't meant to be multidimensional :catshrug God knows I love Fuu but he isn't underrated, since he isn't supposed to be important to the story it's only fair that nobody else cares about him. But to me he has interesting story potential and I like his archetype (aka a brainwashed, emotionless killing machine).

    You're right about Dosu, he was killed off too early. Would loved to have seen him run from Oto and develop more sound-based ninjutsu on his own, then try to assassinate Orochimaru in vain.

    Guruguru was great fun. Going from asking Obito 'What does it feel like to poo?' to stating to the falling shinobi allied forces 'Can none of you seriously articulate the feeling of shitting yourselves?' was excellent. I miss goofy Tobi.

    Best tier = sasuke, pain, naruto.

    Lowest tier = itachi. Worst character ever written.

    The way the director twisted his original character and made him a saint indeed meets the description.

    Itachi is not one dimensional.
    He as development.
    He as a personality.
    He as backdrop.

    How can he be shit tier based on the OP's list ?

    Not sure if this is for highlighting less major characters that we think had a lot of potential or just generally what characters are what?

    For the latter though, man Yamato and Anko really go the short end of the stick. They both had great personalities and back stories with a lot of potential but were continuously fodderized to plot and faded into irrelevancy. I waited years for Yamato to come back from being offscreened only for him to come out one tree and into another in the same panel.

    I also agree Dosu Kin and Zaku could've been pretty interesting if they had stuck around.

    Based on your rating criteria, I don't think I can rate any Naruto character higher than good tier.

    You'll don't have to stick to the criteria used in the picture. Especially considering that that picture attempts to comeup with an objective standard while art is all about subjectivity

    Thanks for you'll's (English teachers, is double contraction allowed?) input thus far
