Can't be certain...
The record between them pre-timeskip was Gai winning 50 to 49... however that record includes stuff like eating contests and games of rock, paper, sissors... So actual strength between the two is rather unknown

Speaking of Gai...

What I've sorta wondered about Gai is if he has any ninjutsu. I've only seen him do a minimal amount of jutsu other than taijutsu (walking on water and dispelling the sleep genjutsu at the chuunin arena). Also, I think a few kicks/punches of his had the blue "chakra effect", but I dunno if that was added in the anime for effect or that he was using chakra to strengthen the hit. He never uses ninjutsu that I know of (other than the few times i mentioned) and even in one of the fillers to challenge Lee in his dojo he puts on a lame wig and mustache instead of using henge no jutsu (probably for comedy effect, but still).

The first time I watched the series I thought he was pretty much like Lee, where he had no ninjutsu or genjutsu capabilities, but I'm watching the series the whole way through yet again and I've noticed a few times he does. I'd imagine that the turtle that scolds Lee after the Sasuke and Lee fight was summoned by Gai now that I think about it...


Side note: Mighty Guy just sounds lame. I'd rather the translators leave the names alone (characters and techniques) and if they are going to translate the names literally then shouldn't they switch the names/surnames to the English style Guy Might and Lee Rock and etc.? Lee Rock sounds nowhere as cool as Rock Lee IMO.

It is said nowhere that Gai is as bad as Lee at Ninjutsu and Genjutsu.

I think he tries to be a model for Lee and so restrains himself to do only what Lee can learn.

Spoiler for manga:

Haha I rememeber that chapter it was awesome, but I just hope that Lee is not severly handicapped by his diability and can never surpass his mentor

Can anyone suggest the best filler arc to watch apart from bikochu?

I guess that would be the Sea Country Arc (ep 169-173), featuring Naruto, Ino (even more useless than Sakura at her worst), Shino and Anko (portrayed as very weak because of her Cursed Seal though). The fight are not very good, but the plot is pretty good. (even if there is again the same old cliché "you and I are the same" between Naruto and a freak. I am afraid they ruined the character of Anko with their non-canon flashbacks of her relation with Orochimaru though. Still it's worth watching, I think.

The bounty hunter Arc (ep 159-160, with Kiba and Hinata), as well as the Bird Country Arc (ep 162-167, with TenTen and Neji) are also passable.
If you want to watch some fillers, I guess you should download 159-173. However, be careful to not watch episodes 161, 168 and 174, which are the 3 worst episodes ever.

You are sure it wasn't fan art ?

I don't remember seeing all the hokages in master/student relations on a single picture. Especially a picture where Shodaime and Kakashi would be present.

However, if more than one picture is good for you :

Spoiler for Shodaime, Nidaime and Sandaime:

Spoiler for Sandaime and the Sannins:

Spoiler for Jiraiya and Yondaime:

Spoiler for Yondaime and Kakashi:

Spoiler for Kakashi and the brats:


I don't know from which chapters those pictures come, but I am pretty sure they are not from the same chapter.

Well according to Gai's stats in the databook, he does indeed have some ability in both ninjutsu and genjutsu... however, his stats in both a fairly low for a jounin, there comparable to that of a genin (maybe a low chunin)... on the other hand, his stats in taijutsu, speed, power and stamina are all maxed out...

So really, it seems like the only reason he uses taijutsu is because that's what he's really good at... when it comes down to it, his ninjustu and genjutsu are probably pretty useless in a serious, jounin level fight

Funnily, in the picture where Sandaime speaks of the Leaf as his family, there are only the 9 genins (Team7 is shown separately) and Konohamaru.
Asuma should sue him.
