Raikage Motivational Poster by DarkKnightOfShadows Raikage Motivational Poster by DarkKnightOfShadows
A motivational poster featuring one of the most badass characters in the Naruto universe: THE RAIKAGE!!!

So far, not only is he the only one to call a for a meeting to discuss the Akatsuki, but he's also smart enough to NOT trust Danzo, and actually call him on it. And on top of that, he actually considered Naruto, Kakashi, and Tenzo's words about him killing Sasuke starting a war, and admitted that it just might come to that... and then told them that stopping the war was their problem (harsh, but Konoha really is at fault here for letting the little emo fool run amok).

And this was all before he smashed through a wall to go and fight Team Hawk (but not before he told everyone else to keep an eye on Danzo, smart man).

During the fight, he KO's a fully transformed Jugo with a single hit, after having survived his point blank attack, and then he started kicking Sasuke's ass.

He's demonstrated Tsunade level strength, and has been said to he almost as fast as the Fourth Hokage, (Oh No, advanced Taijustu and awesome speed, the sharingan's one weakness).

He's also managed to dodge the Amaterasu, and block the Chidori with his lightning armor, and he was able to deliver an attack so powerful that Sasuke was forced to partially summon his Susanoo to block it, and even then a rib broke off the Susanoo.

Finally, when Sasuke surrounded himself in Amaterasu to protect himself, the Raikage just hit him anyways, sacrificing his left arm to go for the kill. Sasuke started to counter attack, but the outcome of the final attack is unknown , as Gaara interrupted the fight at that time.

After this, the Raikage glances at him arm and seems to just remember that his arm is being consumed by black fire and casually uses a karate chop to cut it off, JUST LIKE THAT! Then he asks his Team-Medic to stop the bleeding so that he can keep fighting, all casual like, no sign of any discomfort.

As of right now, with Tsunade in a coma, Danzo in the hat, and Gaara not having had any major development for a long time, he's my favorite among the current Kage.

I don't own Naruto, in any way shape or form, and I apologize if I offended anyone, so please don't sue me.

Chuck Norris vs. raikage

Making him like this almost makes for how he demand the head of Hinata's dad merely for protecting his own daughter from being kidnapped by one of his own ninjas. However when Sasuke goes after his own brother he wants to scream bloody murder about it

Hm... He should really meet Jack Rakan (also known as the Chuck Norris of Anime)

Tsunade is physically stronger than the Raikage. It was stated in the manga.
DarkKnightOfShadows Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013
Yes, but at the time when I wrote this, that hadn't been confirmed yet

Mm... I think that he has to compete with Itachi for the title of the Chuck Norris of Naruto. But I agree. The Raikage is a bad A!! XD
Teh47710 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012
But Itachi is more of an ass-pulling haxor than a Chuck Norris.

So far, all of A's abilities are logical extensions of his core potentials. Lately, Itachi just pulls off random shit that isn't foreshadowed.

Susanoo and Izanami included.

This is unfortunate, because Itachi can kick ass without pulling off random shit, unlike Sasuke.

He's a hot-headed idiot who tried to kidnap a four year old girl.
Uzumaki1632 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Hobbyist
I think Hinata was three when that happened...

AnywaysI'm surprised since Kumo tried to kidnap Kushina once before.
AlanThickamn1002 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Oh okay, so the fact that she was three makes it ok.

No it doesn't; I just wanted to point out that mistake.

He's just lucky that none of the other kage are as hot headed as him because if they were and he had acted like he had at the meeting then WW3 would have started because of this meathead, a good leader reacts calmly not ready to start a war over one man regardless of his relationship to him. Also whats with people calling that golden haired calf chuck norris a badass ? He won a few competions and was in a lot of moviea but so what?
DarkKnightOfShadows Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2011
The Chuck Norris thing is a reference to the all the "Chuck Norris Facts" that are out there. They're a series of jokes that describe him as a Physical-God, and they make people laugh at how ridiculous they are. Ex: Chuck Norris's tears can cure cancer, unfortunately Chuck Norris never cries!

...seriously, how have you never heard of those jokes? Chuck Norris's Bad-Ass status is one of the biggest internet meme's there is.

Also, the Raikage, A, is a very emotional man, who has already lost his father, and very likely the rest of his family. People in the Naruto series have sworn eternal vengeance over similar reasons, sometimes not even over deaths, so him trying to avenge his brother by killing the man who killed him isn't that surprising. At least he's not like Madara or Pein, who took it out on the world for no reason.

Also, the other Kage's are just as quirky as A, they just act out differently. And ever since he caught up with his brother B, his temper has calmed down and he's been such a great leader that you can see why he has so many loyal soldiers. Even when he was grieving for the death of his brother and surrounded by people who might have made under-the-table deals with the people who kidnapped him, he was still a very impressive person, so much so that he was made the Supreme Commander of the Alliance Army. And even at his worst he never made as big a faux-pas as Danzou did.

All in all, there's many good reasons why we think he's awesome.

What about the Hyuga Affair?
DarkKnightOfShadows Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013
While I won't deny that the Hyuuga business was a shady move on his part, one has to remember that this is a series that revolves around ninja, assassins, and soldiers. The Shinobi in the series are a mix of traditional ninja and and guerrilla soldier, and as the leader of what is one of the five strongest military garrison/cities located in one of the five largest countries, A has no doubt had to make many decisions that hurt others, for the sake of ensuring that the people who's well-being he is responsible for (At least 10000 - 15 000 shinobi plus the civilians they protect) will survive for many years to come. He is also responsible for keeping their edge in battle so that his people don't suffer needless causalities.

Also, one must remember that even though the series focuses on Konoha, every one of the five great villages has no doubt suffered from similar incidents in the past, and has also preformed similar actions themselves for the sake of gaining an advantage should war break out.

Onoki has admitted to using Akatsuki in the past, Suna tried to invade Konoha, Kiri has a stolen Byakugan themselves, and were plenty bloody before Tobi if the Second Mizu-Kage and Seven Swordsman are indicators, and it wasn't just Danzo who was responsible for the darker dealings of Konoha.

A is simply a man who cares for his people, and will do whatever it takes to make sure that they come out ahead. Minato (who SLAUGHTERED whole battalions in the blink of an eye without batting a lash), Onoki (who protects the village and family he loves with all tools at his disposal), Gaara'a Father (who killed his heart for his village, and waged war for their failing economy), Yagura (who was beloved despite his burden, still played his part in the Massacres, Tobi or no), an A's Father (who had Kushina kidnapped, yet covered the retreat of his soldiers at the cost of his life) , they all did the same. Really, it's all kinda relative when you compare it.

And makes for awesome reading.

Worldbuilding FULL STOP!

I'm more than aware of that; the problem thing is, however, that your comments made me wonder if YOU even knew about those underhanded manuveurs from A.

I personally think he's awesome as well. One thing about him that a lot of people overlook is that he's willing to admit his own mistakes and opinions(backing up the latter with his fists if necessary) and is also willing to call something or someone for what they are. His interactions with Danzo, "Madara", and even Naruto are proof of this.

The way your comments were written made me wonder if you even realized the point you just brought up hence why I pointed out the Hyuga Affair.

i agree 100% with this statement

i woiuld actually love to see him fight Danzo,that would be awesome rape

Tusande level strength?nah he's even stronger if that's even possbile,i mean he's combining taijustu with Lighting Nature and he cut the horn of the eight tails with ease.and his speed is arleady stated to be that of the yellow flash.meaning he's one scary motherfukcer

Raikage is the chuck norris of naruto indeed,espeically if he countered Chriodi with elbow
