Gai can use ninjutsu, but yeah, that is curious. All Lee had was below-average taijutsu. That's all Naruto had too, originally.

No! Lee can not do any form of Ninjutsu/Genjutsu. (At the moment anyway, I don't know If he will be able to In the future)

I would just say that because he was so advanced In Taijutsu they made an exeption.

Oh and Gai prolly had a word In someones ear.

has u seen the head band of lee??

maybe his head band is the answer. because gai himself said that people like lee are a rare case. probably the gave him some kind of special test and the red head band is proof of that. It seem lee is like the younger version of gai, and during time gai learned jutsus. i think he even summon a turtle.

If Naruto Failed the Genin Graduation test 3 times. Was he in Lees class? at one point. This is a little off the point, but i thought about it while reading.

Im sure Gai had a say in Lees graduation. Gai himself said, Its not that lee isnt using ninjutsu, its that he cant use ninjutsu. so.. anywho..We wove lee!

I bet he will learn to control basic chakra, he sees sasuke as a rival, like Gai to Kakashi, so once lee starts beliving in himself and pushing, who knows how strong he will get.

Does anyone know why Lee can't mold chakra? I mean Kishimoto hasn't really explained it beyod saying that he can't do it. I was wondering if there was something implied that I'd missed.
Remember that whether you graduate or not depends a lot on who it is that's grading you. Mizuki would've passed Naruto due to his Taijutsu skills, but Iruka didn't because he wanted Naruto to perform bunshin properly.

As a matter of fact, he says the exact same thing in the manga (Inane I believe). Still, in the earlier frame he says "He can't use them (Ninjutsu/Genjutsu)". As for why, that's because his hair doesn't have a swirl

Speaking of his head-band, did anyone ever realize when that he used to wear the blue one before, but then they switched it to red shortly after? So I guess this kind of dirupts your theory

It's posible they didn't have the same final exam as Naruto and the others did... they could have had a tournament or something similar. I don't think lee can use anything other than Taijitsu, he can mold chakra but hasn't got any talent on how to use it at all... he's like a normal person in the Naruto universe who doesn't know anything about using their chakra

So many damn theory threads in this forum. Some one should make a generic theory thread so people won't get confused.


Either that.... Or we could make Anko's pink pantie theory thread

Riiiiight...because Kakashi and Gai being sex fiends has anything to do with why Rock-kun wears a red instead of a blue headband.

I'd contribute to the debate, only I'm still too Naruto-newbie to add anything substantial, not to mention I'd somehow revert to Rock Lee uber fangirl mode. ^.^;; Maybe he just likes the color red? But he seems to be modeling himself after Gai-sensei, so maybe the answer to Rock-kun's red headband mystery is his mentor's reason for wearing the red band. Ay nako, I try.

Also the old saying "Blue and green should never be seen unless there's something inbetween"... man, my mum has millions of those things. Neji has a black headband, no one's thinking up stuff for that. It's most likly a fashion choice.

Evidently they are taijutsu, since all he is doing is physically opening up the gates.

I think Lee has a red headband because he wanted one. You can probably just choose different colors. Most people opt for blue because blue is one of the most flattering colors.
