    but yeah, naruto does do some pretty respectable things throughout the series despite him not being the brightest and all.
    Didn't you remember the time when Yamato told Naruto he should rely on his own chakra rather than the fox's? Naruto's doing all this training by himself..

    Don't ask that question. Ask why Naruto sux as of late. The manga has seen its better days. Ever sense the anime caught up with the manga, the manga has been bad.

    naruto was popular not because he is dumb or stupid but his never-say-die attitude, care for his friends, man-of-his-word, and his way of try to prove himself to others and getting their acknowledgement...

    well i think like the author of one piece, kishimoto at first knows a perfect way to end the story but because its so popular they had to expand one piece and naruto...

    i think what kishimoto had plan in his mind is to make naruto a hokage in a dramatic, heroic and deserving way but it seems forgotten, now he wants him to force a man to go back to his village even if that guy doesn't want...

    Naruto is so dumb based on this:
    Kishimoto = a Toriyama fan.

    Toriyama: ape, unknown relative at the beginning, naïve main character.
    Kishimoto: Fox, unknown relative at the beginning, stupid main character.

    He can do the same for all so he has some minor changes.
    Also since naruto is the comic relief character he tends to be more dumb every time, also kishimoto tend to show us narutos world trough naruto stupidity and Toriyama used Gokuus naive ness.

    Really though after a while Goku grew up and became really, really smart. Naruto is still awkward in social situations and does stupid things because he's more of a joker, but as far as combat situations go, he's definitely wisened up and uses his intuition a lot.

    I rather like the way Naruto has been portrayed. Actually, I'm always in favour of these 'Naruto', 'Goku' and 'Luffy' type heroes who aren't those typical badass shounen heroes.
    A major reason for Naruto's stupidity is his simplicity, as seen throughout the series. The works of Oda and Kishimoto(Masashi) both being fans of Toriyama's work, show some influence in their 'main' character, all of whom who are those simple-minded-but-strong-types. One of the reasons why I like Naruto is the different styles of fighting: from head-on offense by Naruto on one hand to strategic fighting by the cool and calculated Shikamaru.

    Luffy is most certainly NOT a dumbass. He just acts that way cuz he finds life more amusing that way.

    Don't get me wrong...I was stating similarities between Odas and Kishimotos with Toriyama's work. Luffy is simple-minded and naive like Goku while Naruto is more dumb than simplistic which is also like Goku, though I should say the character of Luffy bears a closer resemblance to Goku than that of Naruto.
