The problem is not Logical wise, but plot wise, as the reason why Hunter said Naruto is not a Hyuga, I guess.

there is no need to make byakugan more powerful. the baekugan doesn't play any major role in this series, the omfgwtfhaxsharingan however advances the plot, what with both kakashi(naruto's training) and sasuke alive and jumping.

Still, I won't feel comfortable if Byagukan is left the way it was shown at the beginning.

Well..Think about it this way, there are people who would not be conftoble if Byakugan gain abilities to match the sharingan. Including, even maybe, Kishimoto himself.

Besides, the purpose of giving Byakugan new Abilities to match the Sharingan should be for a Hyuga and a Uchiha fight, and a Fight like this would just lack the coolness because everyone will know before hand who is going to be the winner.

Well, its all deppend on the use Kihi would like to give the Byakugan in terms of plot, somehow I just don't see this happening.

Like Rurik said I was more refering plotwise but for the sake of discussion : why?
It's not like these bloodlines are mean to be fated to be equally powerful even if they seem to be fated to be almost equally loved by the fanbase.
The Sharingan and the Byakugan may share the same origin but so does monkey and us and I sure you don't intend them to hide some secret power which they could use to fight back Earth
In the same way all jutu come from chakra... Which doesn't mean all jutsu have the same potential.

I remember 4 years ago at the beginning of this thread some people were already saying the Sharingan had shown the end of its abilities whereas the Byakugan was just started.... Well in these 4 years we got to learn a (tiny) weakness from the Byakugan while the Sharingan continues spaming new broken abilities like there is no tomorow.

Had Sasuke & Itachi been Hyuga it would be the opposite but given the story each time Naruto & co will become more powerful the Sharingan will drop some new insane power until the end of the series (or until all Uchiha are beaten but that should be close to the end as well).


That being said, I do hope we will get to learn more about the Byakugan and that Kishimoto will invent some new cool things about it.

I dont we have seen the FULL power of the Byukugan. Does it have anykind of evolution like the Sharingan? It's too early to actually match the too. But right now, they cancel each other out really?? each has there Advantage and Disadvantage. Though Actually unless you have the MS, All Byukugan user has to do is fight you with Taijutsu and hit you Chakra points. Remember what Might Guy said, Look at his Feet and stay away from his eyes.

Also his name is MIGHT GUY not Maito Gai...Where did the name Maito Gai come from???The name "Might Guy" is a joke aimed at the "hot-headed hero" archetype that appears in many movies and anime. Shonen Jump even uses the name "MIGHT GUY" or "MIGHTY GUY" (which was changed to MIGHT GUY)

I say neither ...

People would think your blind with the byukagan white eyes, when in reality you can make an eagle say: "do you have eyes on the back of your head?".

And with the sharingan eyes YOU SIMPLY ARE A FREAK ... I will stay with a kyubi instead of special eyes. At least with a kyubi you are a FREAK! but with a good reason to be one, you would have a demon inside ^^.

Doesn't matter! We have to accept that characters's name are about as stupid as it get and we should call Iruka Dolphin of the Sea, Ino Wild Boar in the Mountain, Kakashi Field Scarecrow and the list goes on!

Actually a direct translation would be Maito Gai(I think this is the written pronunciation of the Japanese sound), but when translated for english purposes it's might guy , both would be correct...mighty guy prob. would sound better in english though

byakugan would win if the fighter could get close enough to land two chakra hole plugs on the sharingan user's eyes

Yeah except if Sharingan could get close enough to land two hole plugs on the Byakugan user's eyes.

Assumption is the mother of screw-ups.

---Neji vs. Kakashi = kakashi wins
---Neji vs. Sasuke = even
---Sasuke vs. Neji's daddy = Neji's dad wins.

---SEE the context and logic behind that
