Only watched a bit of Naruto, (not a big fan of the show)

However, From what I have seen, shes not useless at all.

Shes a medical ninja, her job is field dress injuries and ensure her teams survival. No ones died yet to my knowledge.


She also saved kankuro? (I think thats his name), saved his life after he was poisoned by Sasori, she also created an antidote to his highly complex poison recipe.

She defeated Sasori, and has done a pretty good job at being a medical ninja.

I dont know what people expect of her lol. Shes not strong for plot convenience like naruto.

When people ask these questions I also wonder how they would deal with those responsibilities; They would probably be the first character to die off.

Also, to the last poll option; what does being a woman have to do with anything? are you implying thats why shes useless? I can assure you, being a woman or a man has no weight on your usefulness.

She's the Asuna of Naruto; typical sidelined female who needs to be protected.

are u srs

> She defeated Sasori.

> She overcame hardships and learned to mature and a very young age. That episode where she cut her hair off many years ago? That was symbolism. She was throwing her old self away to become stronger. Not just to get out of the clutches of an enemy. That was only the first step, though; these things do take time.

Talk about character development.

> I can see how she's portrayed as a weaker female role; I do wish she was more involved in a lot of battles throughout the seasons, because she can kick ass under Tsunaide's wing. But she is also a medical ninja who is needed to heal injured allies.

> She's also an encouragement to Naruto. Just as a good friend should be. She has helped push him in the right path many-a-time. It wouldn't be Naruto without some cheesie friendship connection, ok.

> Even more character development, given the most recent story-line.

She's sometimes useful but she mainly just gets in the way.

One of the more disturbing things about Naruto is how most of the female characters are useless in the first half. I don't see why Shippuden gets the hate it does. Naruto wasn't the greatest series, I mean Sakura WAS USELESS. But then Kishimoto was like, "Hey, we got to make her seem useful, despite how little effect she has on the actual plot." When it comes to plot defining moments, she's not all that useful. Sure, they say she could be useful and is, but that's background.

Usefulness is best measured by plot relevance, or how much and what type of effect they have on the story. I watched to the beginning of the shinobi war arc, and I'm not seeing it.

Although I haven't watch every episode of naruto and shippuden, I have watched enough to know that if she weren't there, the show would be, more or less, the same. I mean in some sitiuations, she was quite useful, but in the grand scheme of things, she really isn't all that important. But if it's any consolation I can name hundreds of other female characters from other shows that are beyond useless.
