Default Sakura: Useless, or Not?

Ok, after reading through the "is hinata useless??" thread, I decided to come up with a Sakura one.

Now, there are in fact, a lot of us wo think Sakura is still useless, now here's your chance to say why and for those of you who don't, here's your chance as well to say why not.

I'll go first! ^ ^

Sakura isn't useless. Why? It's simple: She's actually trying to get stronger and achieve more, also, she's shown to do more than the normal kunoichi in her age group.

People will disagree, but here are more reasons why I htnk she's actually useful.

1. She fought and defeated Sasori. Regardless if she had Chiyo to help, she actually fought and defeated an Akatsuki member with her own strength.

2. She actually wants to do something other than sit around crying. I know there will be posts saying, "But she's been crying a lot lately!" Have you ever wondered why? Sasuke. He's the one she wants to save the most, and that's why she can't stop herself from getting emotional when he comes up. Him in the darkness and being evil hurts her.

I'll come up with more later, but I have another manga I'm reading, so I'll come back to this in a bit. Well, post your reasons as to why Sakura is or isn't useless. ^ ^

In the original series, Sakura was pretty useless. But in Shippuden she isn't. She has gotten a lot stronger and knows a bunch of medical jutsu.

Default Re: Sakura: Useless, or Not?

For part I, I can see why someone would say that Sakura was useless... as she didn't fight as much as most people would've thought.

But for part II:

Spoiler:

*looks at the remains of Hiruko and shudders*
Yeah, only one punch. Never thought it would only take a single punch to completely obliterate Sasori's favorite puppet.

I would have to say that she's definitely proven her worth as an effective Medical Ninja... at least a couple of times, by my count

She isn't the best,but she's not useless.Sakura can defeat anyone with one hit(of course,landing a hit is the problem),she only needs someone to grab the enemy and then game over and without using too much chakra.

Proof:She destroyed Sasori's shield puppet with one hit(and Sasori too,but he recovered),she defeated one of Pain summonings with one hit.

True, in Naruto, she was pretty much just the female role who needed to be saved, but once she cut her hair, she changed and decided she wanted to become strong. Ino said Sasuke liked girls with long hair.
>/_\>
</_\<
She got rid of what may have made Sasuke like her a little more, even though it was just a rumor. She got rid of her material being.

In Shippuden, the difference is apparent. She has incredible physical strength, is a medical ninja, and most of all.......

Spoiler:

She's deciding to go out and kill Sasuke herself, without Nauto. Sasuke was the one who made her cry and hurt. Nonetheless, she loves him. Sakura wants to save Sasuke from the darkness on her own.


Now, who wants to say Sakura is weak?

Sakura is far from useless. She's stronger now than ever before, and she actually tries to do things now.

She used to be, in part one, but so did Hinata. And Hinata still is.

She was completly terrible in every aspect back in the original, but it's always good to have a medical ninja around, even better if they have a good Plot No Jutsu move.

ya even in the non shipuuden episodes, she was a great genjutsu ninja. She could have noticed and stopped a genjutsu in its trackes on a mission facing another genjutsu user

HECK NO!
Not even in regular Naruto.
She saved Lee's Naruto's And Sasuke's lives.
She protected Tazuna
She protected Sasuke from Gaara
She saved Kankuro's life
She punched Sasori
She saved Chiyo
She left the village to try to kill Sasuke
She saved Karin's life
She Saved Hinata's life
She defeated Pains thingamabob
She killed White Zetsu
Etc.
She may not be the best ninja but she's not useless

As a fighter she is useless, but as a medic she is awesome so I'm just going to say equal I guess.
