Yeah, it's like CPUs. If I have a 2.0 GHz chip, and you have 2 1.5 GHz chips, the 2.0 still owns the 2 chips.

It's also obvious that Orochimaru didn't give it to him (once again, anime subs.) because when Orochimaru runs into Kakashi when he's protecting Sasuke, Orochimaru tells Kakashi, "I see you got what you desired." in reference to the sharingan.

Maybe Kakashi used some of his techniques to get the eye from one of the clan members that Itachi killed. It'll be answered later, I imagine. I just hope Kakashi finds a way to get buffer, or hasnt' shown the full extent of his powers yet.
Orochimaru was telling Kakashi that he's lucky to get what he (Oro) always desired.

You are making Kakashi sound like a hypocrite with some evil agenda.

Anyway, there's also speculations that he got the eye from his best friend.

Well...that makes a bit more sense. Guess I got a bad subber.

I don't think Kakashi has an evil agenda, but perhaps a bit of a darker past. I'd heard the best friend suggestion...I'm just assuming he was dead or dying when he gave it to Kakashi, because his friend doesn't seem to be around anymore...and Kakashi mentions something early on about not having his friends around.

they are completely different things. so what? he does not have it in both eyes. but he can STILL see stuff that sasuke cannot because he has that third fleck, and sasuke does not. so there.

Wrong guy to flame. Read my example again, it backs yours up.

1 powerful chip beats 2 lesser chips.

1 powerful Sharingan beats 2 lessers.

Though if you want to argue with your own argument, go right ahead.

i will argue with everything i see fit. and that was not a flame. that was an expression of my opinion. i will now argue that arguing is arguable.

If you argue with an arguer, that makes you an arguer so the arguer you are arguing with is arguing with an arguer.

Are you on some sort of caffeine rush? Or possibly crack?

Someone said since Sasuke had more total flecks, his Sharingan were in total more powerful.

You said Kakashi's Sharingan was stronger than Sasuke's 2 Sharingan.

Then I said "Yeah, Hobo's right." and then backed it up with a real-world example.

Then you said I was wrong.

Sasuke had 2 flecks in one eye and 1 fleck in the other when he fought Haku.

He had 2 flecks in both eyes when he fought against Lee before the chuunin exams.

Ok, I'll tell you guys the real reason Itachi backed off from those fights.

It's just a plot device used by the author to keep us wondering until we see Itachi unleash his true power. I think that's all there is to it. I don't think anyone would want to see Gai and Jiraiya get killed yet.

You know you guys are making sharingan out to be the ultimate tool in this anime, but it might be or not you decide.
Narutoguide.com has this:

Secret of the Sharingan, as told by Zabuza:
The Sharingan can neither read minds nor see the future. It is simply a trick that makes an opponent think you can. It's basically an eye technique involving hypnotism and an attention for detail. By using those two abilities together, you can progress from copying the mind to copying the Jutsu. This is the dance that makes it seem like a Sharingan user can see the future.

First, with that keen eye you copy your opponents movements and shake their mind.

Body copying
Once they are confused you are able to figure out what they'll say and can become them.

Mind copying
When their worry and confusion reaches it's peak, you attack with a clever trick. Through hypnotic GenJutsu, you suggest what seal they should preform.

Jutsu copying
Once you know what the seal they are performing, you simply copy it. Using this technique, Kakashi has gained the knowledge of hundreds, possible thousands, of Jutsus.

The Sharingan user's worst opponent would be a TaiJutsu specialist. When reading NinJutsu and GenJutsu, which need Chakra to be raised and Seal(In) to be preformed, you get an advantage through the Sharingan. Although TaiJutsu is a little different. Even if the Sharingan eyes can read movements, their body does not have the speed to react to TaiJutsu. Basically, even if a Sharingan user can see it, if their body can't move, then it's useless. Advanced Taijutsu is the worst possible match up for Sharingan.

Also you underestimate Jiraiya. It been awhile, but i could have sworn that his apprentice was the fourth and his Master was the 3rd. Now to me that seems like a highly creditable combination.

Wrong. I don't know where you get your info, but "owns" really doesn't mean anything here without any explanation.

Examples:
1. Pentium M 1.5 Ghz chip out performs Pentium 4 2.0 Ghz chips in nearly every benchmark. This is because clock speed isn't everything. There are better optimizations in the Pentium M chip.

2. One 2.0 Ghz chip will only perform better than two 1.5 Ghz in certain cases. The only way to measure speed performance is from execution time. And when a program's parallelism is big, two 1.5 Ghz chips will most likely execute the program faster, with a good OS.

3. A person with IQ 180 will not own a person will IQ 100 in every competition. Raw speed/numbers do not always decide who wins.

also, I got the feeling he feels bad about killing his whole clan and doesn't really want to do the same thing to the rest of the village, regardless of whether or not he actually could
Wrong, itachi did not face jiraiya in a village full of hostile jounin. He met jiraiya in another town that was not the hidden leaf village. Read chapter 144 again. Also, in the chapter, (about page 9), itachi mentions he wants to kill them and I think he is refering to jiraiya. So it is obvious itachi has doubts whether he can take out jiraiya.

Read manga chapter 144 again. They are not in the ninja village. They are in another village, and itachi chose to grab naruto then because he believed there won't be other ninjas and because he believed he could deal with jiraiya using his weakness of women. So as you can see, itachi doesn't think he can take jiraiya out with a one on one fight or doesn't think it is worth his life/health...

Its pretty hilarious how you think a Taijutsu user will be effective against Itachi.

Itachi is probably the fastest character in the show, so i dont see how Taijutsu is going to be effective against him.

You can say that Gai can open his 8 gates, but do you honestly believe that Itachi hasnt copied the 8 gates manipulation in the past??

Itachi knows more jutsu than anyone is probably the fastest character on the show, the only people that may be stronger than itachi are perhaps the 5 other members of his clan and whoever leads that 7 man gang.

jesus THINK before you speak, please.

Where the HELL would Itachi have learned how to copy the 8 gates technique from? As far as we know, Gai is the ONLY character who would possibly know how to do that.

You seem to think Itachi is some infallible god or something.

Umm, supposing Gai were to open 8 gates against Itachi, what would be the point of Itachi countering by also opening 8 gates? Clearly if someone opens all their gates against you, they are planning on sacrificing themselves to take you down. You sacrificing yourself in return is kind of pointless. The best thing to do against someone who has all 8 gates open is to try to get away.
