Just noticed something really impressive about Lee

His stamina is absolutely incredible. So Sasuke was winded and the taijutsu was noticably taking its toll after a minute or two of him using it in his fight against Gaara. Now this is the genius Uchiha who has enough chakra to perform both fire and lightning jutsu as a genin, several times a day. Now Lee was doing this for quite some time in his fight against Gaara. Not only that, the purpose of his ridiculous leg weights are to directly offset that monstrous speed, which means hes powered up ALL THE TIME!!! Think about that. If he could only use ninjutsu...

Rock Lee would be Hokage if he knew any ninjutsu, end of story.

Considering Lee has to probably work twice as hard as any other ninja to even learn and be able to perform the techniques, it would seem that his stamina also improves after all that hard work.

Imagine the range, volume, and intensity of a Katon jutsu coming out of Lee. Or the silly things he could do to people's minds with his speed and normal bunshins. He could run in and out of his own images and his opponents would have no idea (plus he'd have a ton of bunshins). Its just so sad...

If Gai could train a ninja like Lee to become that powerfull, imagine what he could do to someone like Sasuke?

-Well he could get him to get a bowl-cut, wear that green leotard, and scream "Power of youth" in every sentence to begin with.

lol.That makes me remember Gai giving Naruto the green uniform after Itachi and Kisame left. Naruto would've made good student for Gai, he and Lee are the only ones to think that outfit is cool.

If Gai trained Naruto as much as Lee. He would be the strongest ninja known and they'd have to give him a nickname like Lee. Maybe Konoha's Orange Unpredictable Fox.

Stamina rankings before TJ. (Konoha Genin)

Naruto: 4
Sasuke: 3
Rock Lee: 3
Chouji:2.5
Neji: 2.5
Shikamaru: 2
Kiba: 2
Shino: 2
Tenten: 1.5
Hinata: 1.5
Sakura 1.5
Ino: 1.5

So Lee definitely has very good stamina for his age. But I wouldn't call it absolutely incredible or anything. He'll probably max out a 5 in his peak years like Gai.

And if someone raised his I.Q. by about 50 points.

If i am correct...Lee trained himself that much....not Gai.
I think a few flashbacks proved that....and when he was taking a break because he got emotional (obviously after training so much without results) Gai was there to ask him if he took a break already!

As a sidenote (although irrelevant) i think you guys already know ... Rock Lee is kind of a tribute to Bruce Lee (i think i read something like that under wikipedia) ... he most likely will remain the fastest konoha taijutsu ninja.

Yea...its true. He doesn't fight smartly at all. Its sad that Sasuke obviously doesn't have the kind of skill that Lee does, since his body hasn't been used to it for as long, but he manages to progress against Gaara's defenses much more rapidly because he fights smartly. He doesn't try to pound his way through the shield of sand like lee does...when hes about to hit it (and he knows he'll get blocked) he backs away and comes at it from a different angle.

Hmmz I wonder how the fight between Gaara and Lee would have gone if he would have been drunk...... He also doesn't need anykind of intelligence for his drunken boxing technic.

It really wouldn't have gone any differently. The reason that suiken lee was so powerful was because he was unpredictable, but in actuallity the direct nature of his attacks probably helped him more than hurt him in his Gaara fight, since predicting stuff never even entered into Gaara's strategy. Actually...his strategy seemed mostly to be "oh crap, what do I do, I can't even see him...I hope my sand takes care of this."

Yeah now that you mention. I was just remembering the fight against kimimaro, against who'm it did appear to work, for a while anyway. And it made me kinda wonder. Didn't really think about it furter.

Not true at all. Like Guy said in the fight between Lee and Gaara. Since Lee can't mold chakra outside of his body he focuses all of his time on Taijutsu. Now if he could do Nin and Genjutsu that would be different he wouldn't be able to be 1/10 of the Shinobi he is...

I think we were saying that if the current lee were somehow able to do ninjutsu all of a sudden. Not "If the storyline were different from the start and Lee were able to use ninjutsu when he was developing".

I'd just like to see Lee without weights on more often. It'd be awesome if he's basically been wearing them for 3 years...

Lee's drunken boxing was just thrown in by Kishimoto for fun. It was an homage to Jackie Chan. I doubt it will ever be used again.

Even without the weights Lee would have trouble against jounin level fighters now. He lacks everything from the ability to use ninjutsu to tactics. Look at Naruto. He has about the same intelligence as Lee, but has shown a knack for tactical fighting. Lee is pretty much screwed against high level opponents unless he opens at least six gates. Of course the strain on his body would probably kill him before he hits 30 if he had to do it all the time.

Since Lee could never make jounin, he would great tokubetsu jonin because he is a total specialist.
