Might Guy is the son of Might Duy, who was nicknamed the “Eternal Genin” because he never advanced beyond the rank of Genin.

Duy intervened and sacrificed himself by opening all Eight Gates to defeat the Seven Swordsmen. Furthermore, Guy has no siblings, and his mother’s identity is unknown.

Love Interest – Girlfriend

Might Guy, known for his dedication to martial arts and fierce loyalty, does not have a confirmed romantic love interest in the Naruto series. His focus and passion primarily revolve around his training, his role as a shinobi, and his deep bonds of friendship. Guy is one of those Naruto characters who do not take an interest in women.

Background

Might Guy, also known as Might Duy’s son, is a prominent character in the Naruto series created by Masashi Kishimoto. Hailing from the Hidden Leaf Village, Guy is a highly skilled shinobi and a master of taijutsu, the art of hand-to-hand combat. Despite lacking proficiency in ninjutsu and genjutsu, Guy compensates for it with his extraordinary physical abilities and unyielding spirit.

Born with a naturally strong physique and an unwavering determination, Guy grew up under the tutelage of his father, Might Duy, who instilled in him the philosophy of hard work and perseverance. Guy deeply admired and respected his father, Might Duy, despite the fact that Duy was known as the “Eternal Genin” due to his inability to advance beyond the rank of a genin throughout his entire ninja career. Guy struggled with doubts about the significance of his father’s teachings and whether they held true value in the shinobi world. However, his love for his father and his strong belief in the power of youth and hard work proves that his teachings were not in vain.

But the Third Hokage and Danzō Shimura didn’t think Guy was suitable for the Anbu because he wasn’t dark enough. Guy saw Kakashi’s horrible actions during a meeting with the Land of Woods. So he asked the Third Hokage to take Kakashi out of the Anbu. Eventually, the Third agreed, and Guy suggested that Kakashi should lead a team of young ninjas to help him become kinder again.

At a festival, Kiba and Tamaki, who specialize in cats and dogs, start arguing and fuel the conflict. Mirai uses a genjutsu to stop the chaos, but Guy accidentally knocks down a wall that separates the town. Surprisingly, this convinces the villagers to come together.

Later, Lee challenges his son to a match with many spectators, saying that Metal must win if he wants to learn the Eight Gates.

They inform Guy about Kakashi’s warning regarding Itachi’s Sharingan, but Guy is already aware of it and shares a strategy to counter it: by focusing on Itachi’s feet. Guy instructs Kurenai to take Kakashi to a medic while he and Asuma keep Itachi and Kisame occupied until the reinforcements arrive. Itachi and Kisame decide to withdraw instead of engaging in a fight.

Personality

Guy is known for his signature “nice guy” pose, which consists of a thumbs up, wink, and winning smile. This pose reflects his optimistic and confident personality. When Guy strikes this pose, it means that he believes in what he says and will make it come true, either now or in the future. The pose represents his energy and enthusiasm, as he is determined to live up to his promises no matter the effort it requires. He reserves this pose for important promises to important people for significant reasons, often leading to tears of emotion. Guy is a highly motivated and dedicated individual. He is committed to his principles and constantly pushes himself to surpass his limits. He believes in acknowledging both strengths and weaknesses and strives to improve what he can while compensating for what he cannot. This mindset was instilled in him by his father. Despite being proficient in ninjutsu and genjutsu, Guy chooses to rely mainly on taijutsu and even uses unconvincing costumes instead of the Transformation Technique. He also prefers weapons without blades. His MBTI personality type is ESFJ-A.

Guy can sometimes be serious despite his unusual behavior, especially when he faces enemies who threaten the village or his friends. However, even in those serious moments, his uniqueness can come into play. For example, when Guy encounters Kisame Hoshigaki on three separate occasions, he is confident that he has never met Kisame before, due to his poor memory. By observing the energy and enthusiasm of his students, Guy sometimes reflects on his own youth and wonders if it has passed him by. However, he quickly rejects this possibility, believing that youth can never truly fade away. If his student, Lee, breaks one of his rules, Guy may discipline him physically, but he immediately feels upset and starts crying.

Guy often refers to himself as “Konoha’s Sublime Green/Blue Beast of Prey,” a title that seems fitting considering his personality and abilities. Lee greatly admires Guy and strives to copy his appearance and character, aspiring to become as admirable as Guy himself. Due to their shared backgrounds and similarities, Guy is fully committed to supporting Lee in achieving his dream of mastering taijutsu. Their bond is so strong that it can sometimes make others uncomfortable. As the years passed, Guy also developed a similar relationship with Lee’s son, Metal, acting as a surrogate second father or uncle to him. While Neji and Tenten benefit from Guy’s teachings, they have their limits when it comes to participating in Guy and Lee’s mischiefs.

Just like Neji and Tenten, Kakashi hesitates when it comes to participating in Guy’s competitions. He is often unwilling or uninterested in joining their contests. However, instead of discouraging Guy, this actually motivates him even more. Guy is determined to defeat Kakashi and his “cool, hip, and trendy” personality. Despite their rivalry, there is no bitterness between them. In fact, Kakashi considers Guy to be one of his closest and most reliable friends. They work well together in missions, can understand each other’s thoughts without needing to speak, and genuinely care about each other’s well-being. At the beginning of Part I, Kakashi’s score is 50 wins and 49 losses in their competitions. Even when Guy takes the lead, the score difference remains the same. Their contests range from eating competitions to games like Rock Paper Scissors, so the score doesn’t really represent anything significant.

Transformations

By opening Eight Inner Gates, Guy’s body goes through a transformation. Without opening these gates, individuals can only utilize around 20% of their maximum physical potential. However, as each gate is opened, the user’s power increases significantly. It’s important to note that each gate is located in a different part of the body and has a specific name. By opening these gates, Guy can unlock his body’s full potential, but the associated risk and strain on his body also escalate exponentially.

Gate of Opening

The Gate of Opening, the first gate, removes any mental barriers that may hinder the user and allows them to access their full potential. Opening this gate unlocks the powerful Front (or Primary) Lotus technique. The Gate of Opening is situated in the left hemisphere of the brain.

Gate of Healing

The Gate of Healing, the second gate, is located in the right hemisphere of the brain. Opening this gate revitalizes the body and enhances physical strength.

Gate of Life

When the third gate, known as the Gate of Life, is opened, significant physiological transformations take place in the user’s body. Their skin turns red, their veins become prominent, their hair stands on end, and their pupils vanish. Opening this gate grants the user a tremendous boost in speed, which can be further utilized through the Reverse (or Hidden) Lotus technique. The Gate of Life is located along the spinal cord.

Gate of Pain

The Gate of Pain, the fourth gate, is also situated along the spinal cord. Opening this gate results in a further enhancement of the user’s power and speed. However, it comes at a cost as the body begins to endure significant damage, including muscle tearing.

Gate of Closing

The Gate of Closing, the fifth gate, is located in the abdomen. Opening this gate amplifies the user’s power to even greater heights. However, it carries the risk of bone fractures due to the intense strain placed on the body.

Gate of Joy

The Gate of Joy, the sixth gate, enhances all of the user’s abilities and is situated in the stomach. The user becomes so powerful that even bodies of water in the surround are displaced by their energy. By opening this gate, the user gains access to the Morning Peacock technique, where their punches are executed with incredible speed, generating flames through friction with the air. Opening the Gate of View is often depicted with an aura surrounding the user, typically shown as green in the anime.

Gate of Wonder

The seventh gate, known as the Gate of Shock, is located below the stomach area. When activated, it causes the user’s sweat to evaporate, creating a thin blue aura around them. The notable technique associated with this gate is the Daytime Tiger. It involves delivering a powerful punch that releases a blast of compressed air, creating a forceful shockwave.

Gate of Death

The eighth and final gate is known as the Gate of Death, located in the heart. When this gate is opened, the user’s blood evaporates, causing their skin to darken. The heart beats at its maximum speed, granting the user an immense power increase, multiplying their abilities by a hundred times. However, as the name suggests, opening the eighth gate almost always leads to the user’s death. Might Guy was saved by Naruto, but he suffered permanent disabilities as a consequence of using this technique.

Abilities

Although Might Guy had a difficult beginning in his ninja career, his potential for growth was recognized by the renowned Sakumo. Over time, he proved himself a great warrior and gained recognition as one of Konoha’s most powerful ninjas. His incredible strength has been acknowledged by skilled individuals like Itachi Uchiha, who warned the Akatsuki not to underestimate Guy. Through rigorous and demanding training, Guy has pushed his physical abilities to the absolute peak. He constantly challenges himself to reach new heights of strength and endurance. What makes his accomplishments even more impressive is that he achieves them without relying on chakra enhancements.

Taijutsu

As a child, Guy lacked talent in ninjutsu and genjutsu, so he dedicated himself to mastering taijutsu. As an adult, Guy has become a taijutsu master. His expertise extends not only to the styles he specializes in but also to those he is unfamiliar with. Guy primarily focuses on the Strong Fist style, allowing him to adapt his attack patterns and tactics to effectively handle different situations using unconventional yet powerful strikes. He has honed his abilities to the point where he rarely needs to rely on weapons. With just one hand, he can effortlessly send opponents crashing deep into solid rock walls. Additionally, with his remarkable speed, he can strike his opponents before they can fully react or even become aware of his presence. His exceptional stamina and rapid recovery rate enable him to engage in battles for extended periods of time or quickly return to a fighting-ready state after intense exertion. His exceptional combat skills have even earned the recognition of Madara, who acknowledged that Guy’s combat prowess is unmatched. After losing the use of his right foot, Guy’s fighting style has adapted to compensate. He maintains a more stationary posture, relying on his left leg and using his remaining limbs to engage in battle. He flips and handsprings to move swiftly and strategically.

Eight Gates

Trained by his father from a young age, Guy has mastered the use of the Eight Inner Gates. What sets him apart is his ability to instantly unlock the first seven gates without opening the previous ones first. Each gate he opens brings immense power in no time, enhancing his physical, mental, and chakra abilities to their maximum potential. However, as he opens more gates and keeps them active for longer periods, his body becomes more vulnerable to damage. Opening all eight gates is extremely dangerous and can lead to certain death. Because of this, Guy only resorts to opening a single gate when he needs to protect something or someone dear to him. Due to his intense training, Guy has developed the endurance to handle the strain of opening the gates for extended periods. He can withstand the effects of the sixth gate with only noticeable exhaustion and can resist the after-effects of the seventh gate. As the Fourth Shinobi World War progressed, Guy became even more resilient, able to repeatedly activate the seventh gate without succumbing to its effects. He also learned to adapt to the immense pain caused by the eighth gate immediately upon activation.

Once Guy opens certain gates, he gains access to various techniques that he has created. When he unlocks the first gate, he can perform the Front Lotus, a powerful pile-driving move. With the third gate, he overwhelms his opponents with a barrage of punches known as the Reverse Lotus. Opening the sixth gate allows Guy to use the Morning Peacock, where he unleashes a rapid series of punches that create friction in the air. Upon unlocking the seventh gate, Guy can perform the Daytime Tiger. This technique releases highly concentrated air pressure that violently expands upon impact, delivering a destructive blow that he considers a potential one-hit kill. With the eighth gate open, Guy can use the Evening Elephant, which allows him to deliver powerful shockwaves of air from a distance with his punches. However, Guy’s ultimate technique with all eight gates is the Night Guy. By channeling all his power into a single kick, he generates incredible speed that distorts the space around him. The Night Guy was so powerful that it nearly killed Madara Uchiha when he was the Ten-Tails’ jinchūriki. Unfortunately, using the Night Guy resulted in irreparable damage to Guy’s right leg.

Ninjutsu

Although Guy primarily focuses on taijutsu and doesn’t frequently use ninjutsu or genjutsu, he does possess some capabilities in those areas. For example, he has the ability to summon tortoises like Ningame. In addition, Guy has mastery over the fire and lightning chakra nature. Furthermore, despite his preference for physical combat, Guy can break himself free from high-level genjutsu.

Skills

Summoning Jutsu

Might Guy can summon a ninja-tortoise named Ningame. Ningame helped Guy by keeping an eye on Team 9 and even scolded Rock Lee when he tried to use a forbidden jutsu. In the Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy summoned Ningame again to assist him in chasing after Kisame Hoshigaki.

Ferocious Fist

The Ferocious Fist style is a fighting technique that relies on pure strength to overpower and harm opponents. Its main goal is to cause severe damage and break bones. This fighting style does not require chakra, so only physically strong shinobi can effectively use it to inflict significant harm. Might Guy created the Ferocious Fist technique to strengthen himself and compensate for Rock Lee’s limited chakra abilities. Unlike Neji Hyuga’s Gentle Fist, which targeted an opponent’s internal organs, the Ferocious Fist focuses on delivering powerful kicks and punches to cause significant damage.

Leaf Whirlwind

Leaf Whirlwind is a combat technique that involves a rapid sequence of high and low kicks to engage enemies. Its main objective is to catch opponents off-guard by striking them continuously, leaving little opportunity for defense. The speed of the technique is so fast that even the Sharigan struggles to react and track the movements. His powerful barrage of kicks was unstoppable and could send enemies flying, even overpowering those with great strength.

Dynamic Entry

Dynamic Entry is a powerful attack where the user performs a flying kick aimed at the opponent’s face or neck. By adopting a distinct style, the user advances forward with a fully extended leg to strike unaware opponents. The effectiveness of Dynamic Entry is closely tied to the user’s confidence, as it unleashes its maximum offensive potential when the user strongly believes in themselves. As a firm believer in teamwork and the youthful spirit, Might Guy frequently used this technique as a vital weapon in Team 9’s arsenal. Guy has utilized Dynamic Entry against Kisame Hoshigaki from the Akatsuki, and even knocked out Jiraiya, one of the renowned Legendary Sannin of Konohagakure.

Primary Lotus

The Primary Lotus is a technique that requires the user to unlock the Eight Inner Gates, which enhances their speed. The user begins by delivering a powerful kick to send the opponent high into the air. They then grab onto the opponent and start spinning in midair. Both the user and their target seem defenseless when they are about to reach the ground. But, at the last moment, the user escapes the technique, leaving the opponent’s head to collide with the floor. Might Guy taught the Primary Lotus to Rock Lee after Lee learned to unlock the Eight Inner Gates. However, due to its extreme exhaustion on the user, Might Guy considered the Primary Lotus to be a forbidden technique. Nonetheless, he still used it against Madara Uchiha.

Asakujaku

The Asakujaku technique starts with a powerful upward kick to the opponent’s chin or chest, sending them into the air. The user then leaps high and launches a rapid series of punches at the target. As the speed of the punches increases, the friction generates fireballs capable of causing severe burns. Guy created this technique as he was defining his own path as a ninja. He later used it against Kisame Hoshigake, instantly evaporating numerous clone sharks created by the Akatsuki member.

Uber-Leaf Superhuman Hurricane

The Uber-Leaf Superhuman Hurricane is based on the Leaf Hurricane technique. It involves a continuous barrage of high and low kicks against the opponent. However, what sets it apart is the utilization of the Eight Inner Gates, making it impossible to dodge. Even if the opponent blocks the kicks, they still suffer significant damage. Might Guy use this technique against Obito and successfully landed a powerful kick to his head despite Obito’s frequent use of Kamui. The speed of Guy’s kick caught Obito off guard.

Daytime Tiger

The Hirudora, also known as the Daytime Tiger, is a powerful punch that creates a tremendous amount of air pressure. It can only be executed by opening the seventh Inner Gate. The user shapes the air into the form of a tiger head, which then explodes upon impact. Unlike other jutsu, the Hirudora is purely a taijutsu technique and does not require chakra. It has become one of Might Guy’s most iconic techniques in the series. He employed it with devastating effects against Kisame, leading to the defeat of the former Akatsuki member. Guy also utilized the Hirudora in his battle against Madara, successfully shattering Madara’s Susanoo armor and freeing the Eight-Tails.

Evening Elephant

The Evening Elephant is a powerful attack that involves a series of five consecutive punches. Each punch releases a cannon-like blast of pressurized air toward the target, creating columns that resemble the foot of an elephant. These air columns cause significant damage to both the target and the surrounding area. Might Guy performed this technique during his intense battle against Madara Uchiha in the Fourth Shinobi World War. By opening all Eight Inner Gates, Guy unleashed this destructive attack. The force of the Evening Elephant created deep rifts in the ground, shattered Madara’s Truth-Seeking Ball, and even managed to immobilize him temporarily, despite Madara being the Ten-Tails jinchuriki.

Night Guy

Night Guy is a forbidden taijutsu technique that can only be performed by someone who has opened all Eight Inner Gates. When all the gates are open, a blood-red aura surrounds the user, taking the form of a dragon that engulfs them as they charge toward their target. The resulting kick from Night Guy is incredibly powerful and has the ability to completely obliterate an opponent’s body. However, using Night Guy puts an immense strain on the user’s body, causing internal damage that ultimately reduces them to dust. After his Evening Elephant attack failed to subdue Madara, Might Guy unleashed Night Guy as his final and ultimate attack. Night Guy granted Guy enough power to inflict heavy damage on Ten-Tails Madara, leaving Madara in fear for his life for the first time since his battle with Hashirama Senju. Madara was astonished by Guy’s strength and skill, proclaiming him the strongest shinobi in the world.

Strength

  • Taijutsu Mastery: Guy is a master of taijutsu, the art of hand-to-hand combat. His skills in this area are exceptional, making him one of the strongest fighters in the Naruto universe. His speed, agility, and precision in executing taijutsu techniques make him a challenging opponent.
  • Eight Gates Technique: Guy’s unique ability to open the Eight Gates grants him immense power and speed. By unlocking these gates, he can enhance his physical abilities to superhuman levels, allowing him to overpower even the most powerful enemies.
  • Indomitable Willpower: Guy possesses an unwavering determination and a never-give-up attitude. He has an incredible spirit that drives him to push beyond his limits, even in the face of overwhelming odds. This mental strength enables him to endure and persevere.

Weakness

  • Reliance on Taijutsu: While Guy’s mastery of taijutsu is his greatest strength, it can also be a weakness. His reliance on physical combat limits his versatility in long-range or ninjutsu-based battles. Against opponents with powerful long-range attacks or strong defensive techniques, Guy may face challenges in finding effective strategies.
  • Limited Chakra Control: Compared to other characters in the series, Guy’s chakra control is relatively weaker. This limits his ability to perform complex and intensive ninjutsu techniques. While he compensates for this with his taijutsu skills, it puts him at a disadvantage when engaging in battles that heavily rely on chakra-based attacks or defenses.
  • Time Limitations of Eight Gates: While opening the Eight Gates provides Guy with immense power, it comes at a cost. The technique puts a tremendous strain on his body, and the extended use of the gates can lead to severe physical damage, including potential death.

Equipment/Weapons

Guy possesses exceptional mastery in different weapon styles and has imparted his knowledge to Tenten. In battle, he prefers to use nunchaku. With his own pair of nunchaku named Sōshūga, Guy can break through solid rock.

Signature Move

Might Guy is known for using the Leaf Hurricane technique frequently, and it has become his signature move. In this technique, Guy moves toward his opponent very quickly and spins his body rapidly to deliver a series of powerful kicks. The kicks are so strong and fast that they create a spinning energy vortex around Guy, like a hurricane. When Guy uses Leaf Hurricane, he causes a lot of destruction.

Reviews/Reception

Might Guy’s character has received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. His dedication and excitement have made him a beloved and inspiring figure in the Naruto series. Fans appreciate his incredible feats of taijutsu and his loyalty to his friends. His emotional moments, such as his tearful farewell to Rock Lee, have resonated with many viewers.

However, some critics argue that Guy’s character lacks depth and development outside of his determination and physical prowess. They feel that his one-dimensional focus on training and combat overshadows other aspects of his personality. Additionally, his over-the-top personality and quirky behavior have been polarizing, with some finding it heartwarming and others finding it odd. Nevertheless, it’s important to note that Might Guy’s character and impact cannot be overlooked. His memorable moments, such as his battles against Madara Uchiha have left a lasting impression. His never-give-up attitude and his belief in the power of hard work have inspired many fans.

Facts/Trivia

  • Despite the lack of talent in ninjutsu, Guy does possess some proficiency in ninjutsu. Unlike his disciple Rock Lee, who has limited abilities in ninjutsu and can only walk on water, Guy is seen using advanced ninjutsu that requires mastery of Chakra nature affinity. Guy is capable of using fire and lightning release techniques, even though they are not commonly seen in his battles.

  • Despite Kakashi’s difficult past and distant attitude, Guy was one of the few classmates who saw beyond Kakashi’s cool personality and consistently offered friendship. When Kakashi considered joining the ANBU, a group known for its dangerous and emotionally taxing missions, Guy recognized the potential harm it could cause to Kakashi’s already wounded soul. Guy requested the Third Hokage to either remove Kakashi from the squad or allow him to join alongside his friend.

  • Just like his model, Bruce Lee, Guy has nunchaku in his arsenal. In his battles against powerful opponents like Kisame, Guy used his favorite pair called Sōshūga (“Twin Attacking Flames”).
  • Guy and Obito had a somewhat one-sided rivalry between them. Both of them considered Kakashi as their rival and used him as a source of motivation to further develop their skills. It is seen that they had encounters during their time in the Academy, but these encounters often ended in a rather underwhelming manner. Despite Obito’s hard preparations, Guy always seemed to quickly overpower Obito, leaving the young Uchiha unconscious and feeling embarrassed.
  • Guy’s name stands out among the Naruto characters as it is not of Japanese origin. The translation of his name has undergone various revisions for English-speaking audiences. Initially, Viz Media translated his name as “Mighty Guy,” but it was later changed to “Might Guy.” Additionally, in some instances, his name has been rendered as “Maito Guy” in romaji form, further adding to the complexity surrounding the issue. It is worth noting that, unlike most Japanese names, none of these variants followed the typical practice of reversing the surname and given name in translation.
  • Chapter 668 of the Naruto manga and episode 418 of the Naruto: Shippuden anime introduce a character named Duy, who is Guy’s father. This episode sheds light on Guy’s character and the influence his father had on him. The special bond between Duy and Guy also reflects in the relationship between Guy and his disciple, Lee. Furthermore, we discover that Duy, like his son, overcame his limitations as a ninja and used the Eight Gates technique to save Team Choza from the Seven Ninja Swordsman. Interestingly, Duy’s debut in the story occurred around two months after author Masashi Kishimoto lost his own father.

  • In a 2015 interview called the Kobayashi interview, Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, revealed some interesting details about the series. One of the revelations was that initially, Guy was intended to be from a different village. However, with the introduction of a new story arc, Kishimoto decided to change Guy’s background and make him a ninja from the Leaf Village instead.
  • Throughout much of the series, we witness Might Guy opening up to six gates with relative ease. For example, in his fight against the Kisame clone during the Rescue Gaara arc, he accesses these gates without experiencing significant exhaustion. Even after his battle with the real Kisame, he does not suffer as severely as other characters do when pushing themselves to their limits. In the war, Guy repeatedly opens his gates, and prior to unlocking the final gate, there are minimal visible signs of the immense physical pain he endures. It is also worth noting the mental strain it took for him to unlock the final gate, fully aware that doing so would lead to his own demise, similar to his father’s fate.

  • The naming conventions in Naruto often reflect familial relationships and lineage. The Nara clan, for example, follows a specific naming style with names like Shikaku, Shikamaru, and Shikadai. When the lineage of Might Guy was revealed, it came as a surprise to some that his father’s name was Might Duy. The issue with Might Duy was that his character seemed almost identical to Might Guy, including his rivalries and abilities. While it can be interesting to introduce the family members of sidelined characters, having a character who is just a carbon copy of the original is not as exciting as it could have been. However, one redeeming aspect of the storyline is the progression of the Eight Gates technique from Duy to Guy.
  • Guy considers Kakashi his eternal rival, and Kakashi too enjoys engaging in friendly competitions with Guy. Although he may not openly acknowledge Guy as his rival, Kakashi is always willing to participate in duels or challenges to test their skills and determine who is the better ninja. This friendly rivalry between Guy and Kakashi has been present since their childhood and continues to shape their interactions. This rivalry has actually benefited Guy, as it has helped him develop effective strategies against opponents who possess the Sharingan.

  • Might Guy is considered the most powerful Taijutsu user in the entire shinobi world.
  • Guy’s mother is never mentioned or shown in the Naruto manga or anime. The absence of information about Guy’s mother has led to various theories and speculations among fans. One theory suggests that Guy’s mother may have passed away during childbirth, while others speculate that she may have left for unknown reasons.
  • Despite facing numerous setbacks and failures, he never loses his resolve and always pushes forward with a strong determination. This positive attitude, often referred to as the “Will of Fire,” drives him to overcome challenges and inspires those around him.
  • Throughout his life, from childhood to adulthood, Guy maintains a positive attitude. He remains energetic and approaches life with a strong sense of optimism. Regardless of the situation, he rarely shows signs of sadness or despair, even when things don’t go according to plan. Moreover, Guy is renowned for his lighthearted and comical nature. He frequently adds a touch of silliness to the story, often surpassing even Naruto in terms of providing comedic relief.

  • In the series, Guy has alias such as Guy-sensei, Konoha’s Sublime Green Beast of Prey, Leaf’s Noble Green Beast, Master Intense Brows, and Bushier Brows Sensei, and Beautiful Savage of the Leaf Village.
  • If the hypothetical scenario took place where Naruto was absent during the destruction of Konoha by Pain, and Pain encountered Guy and his team instead. Considering Guy’s impressive strength against Madara’s Rikudo form, it is possible that Guy could have emerged victorious in a battle against Pain.
  • Hashirama had overpowered Madara on multiple occasions, but it should be noted that these encounters were not against the most powerful version of Madara. The version of Madara that Guy faced was stronger than his previous self. When Madara became the Jinchuuriki of the Ten-Tails, his power reached extraordinary levels, to the point where he could be considered on par with the legendary Rikudo Sennin mode. As a result, defeating Madara proved to be an impossible challenge for anyone except Guy, who harnessed the incredible power of his Eight Gates Released technique.

  • Not only does Kakashi consistently outperform Guy in friendly matches, but he also surpasses him in terms of completed missions. According to the Naruto Databook, Guy has successfully accomplished a total of 788 missions. These include 86 D-rank missions, 270 C-rank missions, 210 B-rank missions, 199 A-rank missions, and 23 S-rank missions. In comparison, Kakashi has an even more impressive record with a total of 1,141 missions completed.
  • In addition to his inability to perform Ninjutsu, Guy also has another weakness that affects his reliability: he often struggles to remember people’s names. This issue is not related to his age, but rather a personal challenge with memory retention. Despite facing powerful opponents like Kisame and Madara, Guy has been known to forget their names. This behavior creates humorous situations and highlights Guy’s unique personality.
  • Guy’s battle with Madara left him severely injured. During the fight, his right leg was shattered. He is no longer able to walk and uses a wheelchair. However, despite this handicap, Guy continues fighting even with just one leg.
  • In the past, Guy revealed his private body part to Kakashi, and Kakashi called it an acorn. As Guy progressed in age, he openly acknowledged that the size of that thing had undergone growth, no longer resembling an acorn but expanding to a larger size.

  • Guy is the teacher of Neji, Tenten, and Lee. However, Guy only seems to think highly of Lee. It makes sense because Lee highly respects Guy and even fulfills all of Guy’s instructions. Guy thinks Lee as of a new leaf that will replace him as an old leaf waiting for the autumn.
  • Guy is still unmarried and single in the Boruto series, but it also turns out that all teachers, including Kakashi, Ebisu, and Yamato, appear to be single. Since many of their students are married with kids, it feels a little weird. The only teachers who are married and have children are Kurenai and the late Asuma.
  • The Eight Gates technique is mastered by a select few individuals in the world, including Might Duy, Might Guy, Rock Lee, and Metal Lee. While the use of this technique is less observed in the case of the other practitioners, Guy, on the other hand, often unleashes the power of the first two gates as a means of entertainment and amusement.
  • Guy possesses a lesser-known skill in the art of making medicine from herbs. This aspect of his character is not extensively explored. It appears that this attribute was included by the writers to enhance Guy’s versatility.
  • Might Guy is known for his signature catchword that he passionately exclaims, “Youth!” Interestingly, he often uses this word in various situations, even when they seem unrelated to the concept of youthfulness. Some might find it confusing to have a ninja in his 30s continuously emphasizing “Youth” without irony. This consistent proclamation of “Youth” in everyday life, even during serious moments, creates a lighthearted and amusing contrast. In an episode of the Boruto series, the word “Youth” was written on his foot.

  • The name “Might Guy” is actually a playful nod to the “hot-headed hero” archetype commonly found in movies and anime. It serves as a humorous take on the character’s personality and role within the story. By using the word “Might,” the name emphasizes Guy’s strength, while also hinting at his energetic and determined nature.
  • In episode 359 of Naruto: Shippūden, Guy expressed agnostic views over the Uchiha’s patron deity worshipped at the Naka Shrine.
