~ Might Guy

  Might Guy is a high-level ninja from the Shonen anime/manga franchise Naruto. He is a master of martial arts, sworn rival of Kakashi Hatake, and mentor to one of the show's secondary protagonists, Rock Lee.


Ever since at a young age, Might Guy has been training to get to where he’s at today. His father was Might Duy, a man who’s famous for being known as the “Eternal Genin” in Konoha due to being a genin (the lowest rank for a shinobi) despite being a grown adult. However, Guy still loved his father and would pick fights with anyone who dared mock him. Despite his gift in taijutsu, Guy failed the entrance exam to Konoha’s Ninja Academy thanks to his lack of talent in ninjutsu and genjutsu. Eventually, Guy was able to enter the academy and became classmates with his future rival, Kakashi Hatake.

After graduating into an official shinobi and becoming a member of a ninja team, Guy was taught the Eight Gates by his father. However, Duy told his son that the Eight Gates came with a self-imposed rule: sacrificing one’s self to save something/someone precious. Eventually, Guy’s life would change when the Third Shinobi World War took place. During a mission in the war, Guy and his team were attacked by the Seven Swordsmen of  Kirigakure. However, Duy came to their rescue and sacrificed his life by unlocking all eight gates to fight off the swordsmen, killing four to six of them depending on the canon.

Afterward, Guy would develop his rivalry with Kakashi by challenging him in numerous competitions. However, they would also develop a mutual friendship and would work together in various missions, especially when the Nine-Tailed Fox attacked Konoha. When Kakashi lost his teammates and sensei, Guy made sure that his rival/best friend didn’t lose himself and stray towards a path of darkness.

Guy eventually heard about Rock Lee, a young student who was unable to use ninjutsu or genjutsu. He encouraged Lee to use his youth to keep on training and eventually became his jounin sensei, leading him and two other students: Tenten and Neji Hyuga. Guy dedicated his life to helping Lee achieve his dream of being a great shinobi who specializes in only taijutsu. He taught Lee everything he knew of taijutsu, including the Eight Gates. Guy even taught Lee the keys to self-improvement taught to him by his father and encouraged Lee’s rivalry with his teammate Neji.

Might Guy played a role in the battle against the Akatsuki, most notably his frequent fights with the Akatsuki member Kisame Hoshigaki. During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy sacrificed his life by unlocking all eight gates and nearly killed Madara Uchiha as a result. However, instead of dying, Guy’s life was saved at the last minute by Naruto Uzumaki. However, too much damage done to his leg ended Guy’s career as a shinobi. But despite being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Might Guy continues to train as his flames of youth refused to die out.

Powers & Abilities

  • Immense Physique: Due to his constant training and pushing his body to its absolute limits, Guy has become far faster, stronger, and tougher than other ninjas.
  • Master Martial Artist: As Rock Lee's mentor, he is considered to be the greatest practitioner of Taijutsu ever known. Guy's fighting style is known as the Strong Fist, which focuses on overpowering the opponent with quick and powerful blows, every strike having the power to cause external damage and break the bones of opponents. His martial prowess is so adept that by carefully analyzing the position of his opponent's feet in battle, Guy can predict the movements of his enemies.
    • Dynamic Action: Guy can flip towards the user and attack the opponent with a series of punches and kicks.

    • Leaf Gale: A move that can send an opponent spinning away with a simple rear spinning kick. The move can allow the opponent to lose balance and gives the user of the attack some time for other attacks to perform.
    • Leaf Gust: Simple yet a powerful and effective strike that involves spinning at a fast rate and follows with a powerful high spinning kick to the opponent.
    • Leaf Whirlwind: A move that involves a series of high and low kicks. Uses a high kick as a feint and follows up with a low kick. It also includes a powerful spinning roundhouse kick in the air.
    • Leaf Coil Wind: Performs by making a handstand with his legs outstretched and spins around to create a wind to clear a small area of thick mist.
    • Leaf Coil Whirlwind: Performs a powerful roundhouse kick to a single opponent.
    • Leaf Great Flash:   Unleashes a powerful lateral kick to the head by charging at them that can send an opponent flying.
    • Leaf Great Whirlwind: The move processes with a low kick as the start of the attack and following with a middle kick and a high kick and ends with a heel drop to the opponent. Guy gains buoyancy as the speed of the rotation increases, allowing him to shift into a higher attack.

    • Seasickness Fist: Like the Drunken Fist, Might Guy gains unpredictability in his fighting style due to the motion sickness from the queasiness of it. It can also allow the user to vomit on the enemy.
  • Chakra: Like all Naruto characters, Guy possesses chakra, spiritual energy that is found in all living things. It has five natures that ninjas can tap into, though Guy can only utilize the fire release. Chakra can allow Guy to walk up sheer surfaces or water, and can be used as traction to enhance his speed.
    • Eight Gates: Eight inner gates that limit the flow of chakra in the user's body, making it weaker than it could be to prevent it from damaging itself. People with the right training can open the gates one by one, boosting their strength, but causing their body more damage with each gate opened. Guy is capable of opening all eight gates, allowing him use of many different techniques.
      • Front Lotus: After opening the first of the Eight Gates, Guy restrains the target and spins towards the ground, pile driving his opponent into the ground head-first at high speeds. The move can also work on multiple foes at once if the user wants it to.
      • Reverse Lotus: Guy opens three of the Eight Gates, causing his skin to turn red and his eyes to turn white, and kicks the target into the air before unleashing a barrage of attacks faster than the eye can track. The move ends with an open-handed strike and a kick at the same time, sending the target plummeting into the ground.
      • Violent Leaf Adamantine Strength Whirlwind: Guy opens three of the Eight Gates and does a roundhouse kick.

  • Nunchaku: Despite how complicated the weapon is, Might Guy has shown high skill into it. The weapon can strangle the opponent or be use a bludgeoning weapon.
  • Sōshūga: Like the Nunchacku but with an intricately carved handles. The weapon can be wielded with massive dexterity and used where physical contact is to be avoided.
  • Kusarigama: A sick on a chain that can be used to steal weapons from people. It can also be used to attack opponents and the chain is strong enough to incapacitate people.

Alternate Forms

Sixth Gate

By releasing six of the Eight Gates, Guy's strength, speed and durability massively increase to the point where he can punch so fast that his fists burst into flame from air friction. His strong enough to knock out the Six-Tailed Slug Saiken and easily blitz Kisame, who can deflect lighting-enhanced pencils at point-blank range from Killer Bee. 

  • Morning Peacock: Guy kicks the opponent into the air before unleashing a barrage of punches on them, the punches catching fire from air friction. It ends with the opponent sent crashing down to the ground while being covered in flames by Guy's punches. 

Seventh Gate

By releasing seven of the Eight Gates, Guy's strength and speed increase far more than his Sixth Gate form. In this state, Guy's body is surrounded by a glowing green aura of evaporating sweat. This form makes Guy strong enough to create a massive explosion of concentrated air pressure that dwarfed Turtle Island with just a punch, and even destroyed Madara's full body Susanoo. 

  • Daytime Tiger: A normal punch with so much power, that it unleashes an explosion of air pressure in the shape of a tiger.

Eight Gates Released Formation

By opening all Eight Gates, Guy enters the Eight Gates Released Formation, causing his physicality to increase to a hundred times its normal power and causing his heart to pump at maximum power. While in this state, Guy's blood becomes a flaming aura of red steam that constantly emerges from his body. With this active, Guy was able to fight on part with Madara Uchiha when he was the Ten-Tails' Jinchuriki, causing Madara to compare his fight with Guy to his battle against Hashirama Senju, the first Hokage. However, using this state is fatal, and it causes Guy's body to burn up and crumble into ash after it wears off. Even though Guy survived after being healed by Naruto, using the form cost him use of his legs.

  • Evening Elephant: A barrage of five punches, with each punch unleashing a massive wave of air pressure. One punch is strong enough to carve a massive tunnel in the earth, and the final punch was able to break through Madara Uchiha's chakra shell.
  • Night Guy: The strongest technique usable with the Eight Gates. By gathering all of his chakra, Guy forms the blood vapor coming from his body into the shape of a dragon, before launching himself at the opponent for an extremely powerful kick. While using this move, Guy moves fast enough to distort space, making this attack guarenteed to hit against most foes, and the kick itself is powerful enough to make Madara fear that it would kill him.
