He would make a great security cam though.

I kinda dig that we, for the most part, know what he's capable of.

For me, it makes better reading than using the henceforth-unseen jutsu, which seems like a cop-out. With Neji, it's not how many moves he has, but how he uses what he does know.

Eh...I don't like Neji all that much, but I liked his effect on the story back in the Chunnin exam arc. Kinda the same way I don't like Sasuke, but like the role he fills in the plot. I think Neji is plenty interesting, I just wish he got a little more story time...then again, I could say the same of about everyone else.

I know it's been said a million times before, but seriously, we need to see Neji vs Sasuke-or more plainly obvious, Byakugan vs. Sharingan. Especially between Neji and Sasuke, this fight would be interesting. Sasuke, while not hailed a genius in his clan while they were alive, certainly seems to achieve that sort of rank within the academy. Whereas we have Neji, all-powerful Byakugan-wielding, should-be Clan Leader. What an interesting fight, god...

Yes, he is such an interesting, and sadly posed as, a side-character. This frustrates me to no end. Neji is just too awesome. And, like Hunter said, was hit by Naruto's awesome power of bitchiness. Which rescued Neji from his hatred for the Main Branch for the most part, (I believe he still resents them to a point, not having his freedom and all) but at the same time, was drained of any drive he might of had to become a truly important character.

Neji's attacks might be repetitive, but he uses them in an extremely efficient manner and with amazing intelligence. Hiashi himself states that Neji most likely learned Kaiten himself, it just beats me how he came up with the same exact title for it. Also, the 64 Palms of Divination is also a known Head Family Technique.

....

*pulls hair out* Too many questions....

That's it, I'm going to create a thread. I've had it.

I really would like to see Neji vs. Sasuke...but we don't know enough about Neji's abilities to have that fight (unless the fight itself revealed Neji's here-to-for unplumbed depths power). With the REdiculous power Sasuke has at the moment...the fight would be pretty one-sided. Much as I want Neji to give a good fight (and I've had this debate in another thread), I'm forced to admit that odds are Sasuke would wipe the floor with him.

Neji would've been much more interesting if he was Sasuke's rival.

Spoiler:



Instead of avoiding the Juyken of HInata, Neeji let himself get struck, but before it, he closed a tenketsu of Hinatas Right arm thus voiding the effects of Her Jyuken.

But ohh well, Maybe Im just a sucker for Neeji
And he still manages to grab titties. Bad boy. Negates an attack, disables the opponent and presses teh boobs. Tsunade look out!

Neji's fighting style is hypothetically good against just about any opponent. He can cripple his opponent with taijutsu fairly easily, even if they're really good since any part of his body can be as dangerous as a kunai. For opponents that use range, he can see through their illusions, and parry their ranged attacks fairly easily, which should give him time to get close to them. Naruto, however, uses clones that Neji can't tell apart, allowing him to fight at range anyway. If that weren't enough, he also has a non-standard chakra circulation system that pretty much makes hitting the tenketsu moot. If Neji had just gone for Naruto's internal organs he would've been good, but he had no way of knowing about Naruto's completely coincidental trump card. Personally, I think it's ridiculous that Naruto did so badly in that fight. Everything was stacked against Neji and he still managed to beat the crap out of Naruto.
If Neji hadn't spent half of that match whining and moaning about the main family, he could easily have knocked Naruto unconscious and won the match. A sensible fighter would've won the match first and then spilled out his sob story for the entire audience to hear.

Haha that's right. But i'd say Gaara & Neji were the strongest ones if they finished the entire exam without explaining or telling stories while fighting. Naruto sure was lucky...because the ref actually should've ended the fight. Naruto wasnt able to continue anymore. (Like Hinata vs Neji)

I think it's proof that speed doesnt work against Neji (only the gates, extreme speed)

Once you become Naruto's bitch you lose most of your interest, you can't have backstory on your own and you can't talk more than 5 minutes without randomly shouting that Naruto's going to be Hokage.

Such dreadful power indeed.
hahahahaha, so true.

I think a great arc for Neji would be if Hinata was kidnapped by a shinobi from one of the village and he has to rescue her.

As everyone has read before...a Neji vs Sasuke fight is wanted.

but kishi might think "ooo a byakugan fighter vs a sharingan fighter, that would make a great fight"

then after a think with his team...comes up with a solution of Hinata vs sasuke.

Hinata vs Sasuke...well Hinata would get beat up probably pretty bad imo, but this could lead a way for Neji to take on Sasuke, which would be an interesting situation.

Neji would have been more interesting if he had'nt been bitching about his "destiny" for 90% of the episodes he was in.
