    I dunno... I'm beggining to think Gai was not originally from Konoha. There is NOONE in konoha that looks or behaves remotely like him. I'm thinking he was adopted or was originally from some other village. His techiques are also very unorthodox actually everything about him is, especially his fuzzy brows, and green spandex.

    Nobody looks like Naruto Either.
    Nobody looks like Kakashi either
    Nobody looks like Sakura either.
    Nobody looks like Kurenai either

    Point is.. Kishi wanted his characters to be unique and to stand out.

    Brought there as a baby, too young to remember imho.

    Perhaps that's why you felt such a bond to Lee, they came from the same place originally. Doubt this will ever be covered in canon now though and I hope it's never raped in filler land.

    Lee looks and behaves remotely like Gai and we are told Lee is from Konoha. So that theory fails. And tell me which village you've seen that has other people that look like Gai and Lee that he would 'really' be from? None? That's right. Might as well be from Konoha as anywhere else. And since when is taijutsu unorthodox?

    We haven't seen everyone in Konoha, how can you even make that assumption?

    And since when did the kid HAVE to look like the parents? While mangas generally follow this pattern, it's not always the case.

    Based on your logic can we say that Oro, and Jiraiya were not originally from konoha as well? As lekki stated we barely know the people living in konoha, so your assumption in a way is inconclusive so to speak.

    No one in Konaha living looks like Sasuke. He's from Konaha.
    Are there any pink-haired people in Konaha? No.
    Is there anyone living that looks like Kakashi or Naruto? No. We know they're from Konaha.
    Does Gai have someone that looks like him? Yes, Lee.
    Does Lee have anyone that looks like him? Gai
    Point is, you can't deduce that Gai'f from a different country when other ninjas like Sakura don't have people that look like them either.

    Yea...you fail horribly...

    Yondaime looks like naruto...
    Kakashi had the same hair as his father...
    Its been stated that Sakura's parents arent ninjas...we've heard her talking to her mom, but we havent seen her mom. so there's no way to tell this.
    Kurenai...we havent seen her parents...so who's to say she looks like them or not...they might not be ninja's either...

    point of this post...just to let you know how much of a undeniably retarded post that was...

    You just commited syntax genocide
    Kakashi's father, we never saw,. using this little jibe, you could say that everyone in the comic looks like someone dead that we never really saw properly.

    Yomdaime.. well, here we have the same theory. Someone thats dead looks like this character. However in Naruto's case, he is quite obviously going to be linked to Yondaime in a future comic, but that does not excuse the fact that no other character existing in the present day manga looks like him either, except someone that is dead that has not been given a connection to Naruto past the Kyuubi sealing.


    My original post is geared towards saying that you cannot judge a character by others we have not seen in the manga, by making reference to characters we have not seen the families of.

    And.. you just posted afterwards saying the exact same thing. And tried to bash me for it? I wonder if you're real.


    So.. i'm sorry, you're the retard here. If you want to try and attack something, dont attack the thing you're attacking with the exact same point its trying to make.

    We haven't seen Gai's parents, maybe they look identical to him. Maybe he has an extended family in Konoha that aren't ninjas. You can't assume anything based on what we've seen so far.
