Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back here at TheAnimeScrolls with a brand new list about NarutoVerse. In today’s list, I’m going to talk about top 10 Naruto characters who were wasted. There are characters in the NarutoVerse who had tremendous potential but their true power was never showed or they never reached their true potential. So, without further delay let us begin.
10. Neji Hyuga
Neji Hyuga was considered to be a prodigious character. He had mastered all the techniques of the main family even though he was from a branch family. He had mastered the use of his Byakugan. We all had high expectations regarding him in the anime but he never reached his potential.
9. Rock Lee
Rock Lee was the student of the legendary Taijutsu user, Might Guy. Like his sensei, he is very skilled in Taijutsu. We saw Might Guy using all Eight Inner Gates but we never saw the true power of Rock Lee. We know that he’s very powerful but never got to see his true power.
Anko is a Jōnin from Konohagakure. She is a former a student of Orochimaru. Anko can utilize snakes, as she uses the hidden snake hands technique. Now she has retired as a ninja and serves in the ninja academy as a teacher. We all thought that she might have a prominent role in Naruto but that didn’t turn out to be the case.
7. Sakumo Hatake
Sakumo Hatake was known as the White Fang Of The Leaf. He was of the strongest shinobi of his time but sadly almost none of his abilities were shown in the flashback. We all wanted to see more of his powers that he was renowned for. But, all we were given was disappointment.
Orochimaru is one of the legendary Sannin of Konohagakure. He was arguably the strongest shinobi of his time and still is. But his true power in battle was never shown. We know that he knows an absurd amount of Jutsu but he was never shown using it which is a real disappointment and we hope to see more of him in Boruto.
5. Konohamaru Sarutobi
Konohamaru Sarutobi was trained by Naruto Uzumaki himself at times. He also defeated one of the puppet’s of Nagato’s Pain and we all almost knew for certain that he’ll be an awesome shinobi after growing up. But instead, I haven’t seen a more pathetic shinobi than him. He needs his Genin to save him in battle like we saw in recent manga chapters.
4. Shino Aburame
Shino Aburame was one of the prodigy characters of Naruto series when he was a Genin. He impressed us all during the Chunin exams in Naruto. But unfortunately, he never reached his true potential and now serves as a teacher at a ninja academy. We did hope he would be doing something better than that.
3. Kiba Inazuka
Kiba was one of the best at coming up with strategies in Naruto series. He had the upper hand in his battle against Naruto for a quite a while during the Chunin exams. When the Sasuke retrieval team set off, he fought Sakon and Ukon, and put up a great fight against them. We hoped to see him improve even more but that never happened.
Yamato is another test subject of Orochimaru. He has the ability to use the all-powerful Wood Release Kekkei Genkai. We all thought the ability that made Hashirama so great would at least make Yamato a prominent figure in the series but unfortunately, that never turned out to be true.
She was known as a master at using genjutsu. She used mostly flora to trap other people and bind them in her genjutsu. Also, she was very agile and possessed notable skill in taijutsu as well. Also, she could revert the effects of the genjutsu to the caster. These abilities made us expect more from her but unfortunately, these expectations never became the reality.
