    Now that we know a little more about Shikamaru, do you think he's doomed to die?

    Thoughts, opinions?

    lol I think Shika will live, but I'm worried about whether he'll become a Jounin during the series.

    Yup, Naruto as Hokage and Shikamaru as his chief advisor = Konoha's golden age.

    Looking for death is too much of a hassle for him, so Shika will refuse to see it. :D
    Seriously, he's smart, skillful & still young. Shika has great potential in the future. I don't see him dying any time yet.

    Now, why would he be doomed? He'll be one of Narutos closest comrades in the end..

    What are you talking about? Did 284 come out and I missed it or something? What do you mean, "now that we know a little more about Shikamaru..."? If anything, Shikamaru is the one character I'm positive will survive of the 15 ex-genin.

    1. He's very popular, yet not esscential to the plot. Meaning, If Kishimoto kills him all he does is piss of Shika fans...which is pretty much everyone. All the characters that are more important than him could possibly die to move the plot forward, but Shika dying would just be random. Besides, we all know Kishi doesn't want to kill fan favorite this early in the series. Maybe near the very end when he knows there will be no further use for them, but right now? No.

    2. He's got nothing to prove or save. There isn't anyone he would need to protect and no desire to prove he is strong. Well, to a limited extent he does, but there are much more prominent examples of characters who should do these things.

    3. He had a fake death already. Remember when he sacrificed himself to let Naruto and Sakura continue on after Sasuke during the Konoha Invasion Arc? At first, everyone knew he was going to die, then Asuma saved him. He's safe.

    4. He's got a future already. It's pretty obvious that he has a future with Temari, in fact it's probably the most canon couple thus far. If someone were going to die It'd be someone with an unclear future ahead of them.

    5. Much better choices. I've said this in other points, but basically there are much better choices for death. You want someone to die proving they can beat a more powerful opponent? Rock Lee, Kiba, Chouji, and Hinata for you. You want someone to die protecting a precious person? Rock Lee, Hinata, and Sakura. You want someone to die for dramatic affect without hindering the story too much? Shino, Tenten, Ino, Kiba, Chouji, and Kankuro for you.

    Basically, SHikamaru just has too much going for him to die right now, imo.

    Why would shikamaru die ?
    He's too unique for it .
    I bet he's going to be chuunin examiner forever :D
    J/k, probably like all of the above said, he's going to be Naruto's right hand when Naruto becomes Hokage.

    Welllllll I'm going to have to disagree with everyone, in the upcoming episodes I think that a war is brewing and in the conflict Shikamaru will be sent to backup Temari. I guess whre you can see this is going but I think it's a possibility, Temari steps in to save his life and battles on until she is about to die so he sacrifices himself for her. Don't start screaming at me just because im a temxshik fan, but it would be nice if someone died like that but I think Kishi will have quick and sudden deaths all around.

    Nah, someone will die but not Shikamaru. When you think of how the characters are being introduced in the manga it will probably be the new guy Sai (is that his name). youve probably heard this already but Sai is like the red shirts on the original Star Trek, intorduced too carry the plot then killed like a punk too show the seriousness of whatever situation unfolds.

    I just keep getting this image of Sai getting killed by a reintroduced Sasuke

    Shikamaru is a character with a very different personality, not always fighting and getting mad, or wanting to be the best ninja ever, or loving someone in a crazy and sick way. Hes unique, and has an unique point of view of the ninja world, yet, hes important to the village as a ninja, Naruto´s friend - maybe his best friend, since Sasuke is gone -, and has a good romance going on. No, I dont think hes going to die. Hes sane and smart, rare qualities among his pairs.

    I love how you guys took this poll totally seriously

    it is obviously meant to mock the dumbshit posting the DO U DINK SAI WILL DIE - everyone makes a poll about it whenever there's a new character. its getting fucking old.

    It is getting old. YES, Shikamaru will die and so all the other characters will die also. Nobody lives forever(except Jesus).

    I don't think Shika will die. He's to smart, and he strives too much NOT to be put in the middle of things. He thinks things through, and he'd walk away from a fight before allowing himself to be killed.

    I also think Temari motivates him somehow, and I think that'll help him fight on.

    If you had used Obito it would be doubly amusing. You'd get responses saying, "wtf?! He's already dead!" and other reponses from Tobi=Obito people saying, "OMG of course! He's a villain so he has to die!!" :amuse
