Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing just fine. I’m back at TheAnimeScrolls with another brand new theory. This theory is about the the possible identity of Metal Lee’s mother. Also, this post does contain a lot of potential spoilers so whoever does not like spoilers please stay away from this theory.
Metal Lee is the son of the Jounin level shinobi of Konohagakure, Rock Lee who also happens to be an expert at Taijutsu. Metal Lee also seems to be very well versed in Taijutsu like his father. His father can use all the eight inner gates and we have already seen in Anime that when Metal Lee was under the influence of negative chakra he was able to open the three out of the eight inner gates with ease. Now, let us talk about who his mother might be.
We saw on the day of the inauguration ceremony of the seventh Hokage of Konohagakure. Metal lee watched the ceremony beside his father Rock Lee, Might Guy and Tenten. There have been numerous theories regarding who Metal Lee’s mother might be.
And most of these theories indicate that it might be Tenten.
People say that Rock Lee and Tenten ended up together which I highly doubt. Also, in any interview, Kishimoto was asked about Tenten being Metal Lee’s mother to which he declined by saying that he has a few characters in mind. This means that there is a huge possibility that Tenten is not Metal’s mother. Also, another thing to consider is that we rarely see both of them together. Even at the inaugural ceremony of Hokage, she wasn’t standing right beside him.
The second guess that has been taken is that Kurosutchi might be Metal Lee’s mother but it is highly unlikely that Tsuchikage would allow her child to be raised in another village and I don’t see why Rock Lee would marry someone who he cannot even live with. Well, the fact that Kishimoto is keeping Metal Lee’s mother a surprise makes me think that does he even have a mother.
Maybe he is just an orphan like Kabuto Yakushi was. And this is why Rock Lee adopted him, maybe his parents died tragically or something so he decided to take him under his wing. But many of you might have realized that the duo looks quite alike. I mean they do resemble each other a lot like their hair, eyebrows, hair, etc do look almost same. And it does indicate that the two of them are related.
But I think the reason that they look alike is that they are the members of the same clan, that is, Lee Clan. I know most of the fans do not know that there is a clan named Lee, but there is such a clan and Lee clan is indeed a part of Konohagakure. Also, during the Fourth Great War, there was also someone who strongly resembled both Might Guy and Rock Lee.
And in the credits of that episode, he is credited as Pac Lee. Also, when Metal Lee was awfully injured his mother did not even visit him this seems kind of odd and thus this almost proves that he does not even have a mother. But if you still insist that he has a mother then, in my opinion, it must be Azami, granddaughter of Chen who was also a Jounin of Konohagakure and a legendary master of Taijutsu.
In my opinion, she is the most suitable character to be Rock Lee’s wife. I’m certain that almost everyone does not remember her. You all can find her in Naruto Shippuden episode 312. Well, I think the most suitable scenario is that Metal Lee does not have a mother and is just an orphan taken under his wing by Rock Lee, the legendary Jounin of Konohagakure.
That is it from today’s theory about the identity of Metal Lee’s mother. Hope you guys found this theory interesting.
