Who is the Smartest / Who is the Dumbest
 
Who do you think is the single most intelligent character in Naruto? For me it's a no brainer: Itachi. He did get a few things wrong, like underestimating how much Madara knew about him, or even not seeing that Madara was not really Madara at all. But his ability to analyze opponents and situations is impeccable! No only that, he is such a good poet: "Run, run and cling to your wretched existence. And then someday, when you have the same eyes as me, come before me. . ." That is just so creative

Before people come and start bashing Hidan, the dumbest shinobi is probably Choji. He was practically about to commit suicide by rushing Hidan just because he insulted Asuma. Choji would have died the dumbest way possible in the entire manga if it wasn't for Shikamaru saving him. I agree that Itachi was arguably the smartest shinobi. Also Shikamaru lost some of my respect when it took him that long to figure out Hidan's voodoo no jutsu when it was obvious when Hidan sent Asuma's damage back to him.

I think the smartest is Shikamaru. Honestly I think Naruto is the dumbest, I hate Naruto's personality it really bothers me that they made him a delinquent and a idiot.

yep...i'd always vote for that line of itachi as the best throughout the entire manga...

as to intelligence, I'd put Minato before Itachi....

@Ino>sakura, I'm sure itachi would have found Peins secret way earlier than jiraiya and would have avoided getting killed...

Minato is powerful, and I'd say that he's smarter than Naruto, but he's never said or done anything very intellectual. Like Itachi, he couldn't figure out who Madara truly was. We could say that thry're even, but Minato just went and died. Itachi actually planned his death out from the day he massacred the Uchiha.

Gonna say it cuz I'm biased, Kakashi Hatake. Buuutttt. He is a genius. And I do acknowledge that there are others as well. But just don't feel like naming them.

It’s hard to say who I personally think is the smartest, I’d go for either Shikamaru-kun or Neji-kun because they’re both geniuses in their own rights, Shikamaru’s IQ is through the roof, and this is something that I’m sure many people will agree with me on, he must be classified as an ‘intellectual’ Ninja. Neji however is known to be a genius, and is often referred to as one in the manga/anime, he is also an intellectual type, and thinks things through carefully before rushing into battle as easily as the others, often the one holding team Gui back from attacking recklessly.

So I really can’t decide who is the smartest between these two, I think they are both as intelligent as each other in the different areas they specialise in.
The dumbest Ninja, that is also hard, I’m tempted to say Naruto-kun for all the times he has done something completely idiotic, such as taking the bait/walking into blatantly obvious traps. He always rushes head-long into battles, and has often been referred to as ‘dumb’ by the other characters, e.g. in the first Naruto Shippuden movie he is called ‘dumb’ by the Priestess.
However; when Naruto is being intelligent, it really outshines the rest, therefore, I cannot label him as the dumbest character.

I’m really not sure, though in the end I would probably settle on Choji-san, there are so many reasons why, but I’ve talked long enough so you’ll just have to settle with my opinion! ^_^

Smartest : Itachi
2nd Smartest : Minato

Dumbest : Choji
2nd Dumbest : hidan

Shikaku or Minato

Because ya know, Shikamaru's dad has been shown to be smarter than him strategically and what not.

Not Itachi because he doesn't account for any variables ever.

Re: Who is the Smartest / Who is the Dumbest
 
Shikamaru is smart too. I actually hadn't thought of him. His intelligence should be respected too, because honestly, I don't think he is a strong ninja overall. His taijutsu is nonexistent and his ninjutsu is so-so. You can only do so much with shadows that only work when light is present. He wins his battles through his plans, which really testifies to how smart he is. Itachi could have the intellect of Choji or Naruto and still do alright.

Re: Who is the Smartest / Who is the Dumbest
 
I guess we all agree Hidan is the dumbest of the dumb

Re: Who is the Smartest / Who is the Dumbest
 
Shukaku or Shikamaru because Kakashi stated that he had an even higher IQ than himself. There are a lot of smart people but I don't think anyone can plan ahead like Shikamaru.

Kiba is the dumbest because he never learns his lesson - - he wastes so much chakra using the same methods over again, and he is too stubborn to listen to anybody else. At least Chouji listens to his team mates when in need. Hidan has shown to be smarter than he looks on his serious side.

Re: Who is the Smartest / Who is the Dumbest
 
Shikamaru is overrated for his intelligence. Why didn't he take Hidan's head back to Konoha to have the intel extracted from his head? His objective was to take out one Akatsuki and capture the other one alive. He put revenge above his main priority. Don't even bring up that poorly written OVA where he said he had 20 ways to take Hidan down but he didn't need them. How the hell are you going to take down an edo guy that's twice as immortal without the sealing team nearby? What was he going to do blow him up or have ino and choji dig another 30 foot hole right there? Poor writing.
