These are 9 Naruto Shippuden filler we all wish we got to see and I know what you are thinking, why would we want more filler? Well I’m not saying to have more filler, what I am saying it that we could have replaced some of the cringe worthy filler such as Mecha Naruto and replaced it with something more interesting.
Like we got to see when they showed us background stories of Kakashi or Itachi, I am sure not many people complained about those fillers.
So here are nine things I and I am sure you wished we got to see during the filler instead of Mecha Naruto.
Jiraiya Vs Orochimaru
Now we have all seen flashbacks of Jiraiya and Orochimaru having a stand off when Orochimaru first fled the village however, we never got to see them fight.
We know for years Jiraiya devoted his life and tracked his former friend and teammate, which ultimately meant he had to reject the role of Hokage twice.
We also know that he attempted to stop Orochimaru from leaving the village despite his crimes, and was unsuccessful that in my opinion is hard to believe, with just how strong Jiraiya most likely was at the time.
I think at least an episode or two on what exactly happened during this fight is not too much to ask.
Minatos Team Members
Now this is something which has no real influence on the storyline but, I suppose neither did at least half of the other filler anyway.
But seriously how do we know nothing about the partners of the 4th Hokage and most importantly two of Jiraiya’s students.
Jiraiya has had an incredible record of students succeeding and becoming spectacular shinobi.
Naruto, Minato, Konan, Nagato and Yahiko all became incredibly strong in the story.
We also know that the 3rd Hokage spent a lot of time when it came to making teams and selecting the best teacher. So from that alone we must assume that these guys had some sort of talent.
How the 1st Hokage Dies
This is a massive one and to be honest really should have been at least mentioned somewhere. How did the god of shinobi die?
We don’t even know when he died let alone how he dies. Hashirama Senju was the only known person to naturally use wood release jutsu’s, could control all the tailed beasts, can use sage mode and he was able to take down Madara, so what in gods name was able to kill him?
He is literally one of the strongest characters in the entire Naruto series and barely know anything about him.
It really would have been nice to see more of his story after his fight with Madara.
Hashirama VS Kakuzu
We know that Kakuzu is the oldest character in Naruto Shippuden, without reanimation that is.
We also know that Kakuzu fought with the first Hokage at one point in an assassination attempt, lost and then was exiled from his village.
Kakuzu is also one of Akatsuki which already shows his strength, and to top it off he had to be partnered up with an immortal in order for him to stop killing his teammates, which he was renowned for.
An episode of this fight would have been amazing or at least a little bit more of a back story about him like we got to see with some of the other Akatsuki members.
Sakumo Katake Story
The legendary Whit Fang of the Leaf was one of the strongest characters in the series.
He was also the farther of Kakashi of the Sahringan and it was stated numerous times that his strength was miles above the Legendary Sannin.
However, despite all this we never get to see him fight, not even a glimpse.
I am sure many Nruto fans would have loved to at least see one episode of the 6th Hokage’s father in some action.
Not much is known about Kagami Uchiha apart from that he was a student of the 2nd Hokage and was a much-respected shinobi.
One of the very few things both Danzo and Hiruzen managed to agree on, was just how brilliant Kagami was and he also had the respect of the second Hokage Tobirama, despite him not trusting the Uchiha very much.
We only ever get to see him in a short flash back where the 2nd tells Hiruzen that he will be the next Hokage and then sacrifices himself for his comrades, although we never get to see Kagami fight even then.
Tsunade’s/ Konohamaru Parents
The children of the 1st Hokage and the second child of the 3rd Hokage, and we never even get to see a photo of them.
Who were they? Were they strong? Well we just don’t know. We don’t even know their names, but Tsunade’s parents whoever it was, either her mum or dad being the child of the 1st Hokage, would have been a Senju and have Uzumaki blood in them.
While as for Konohamaru’s mum or dad, whichever was the child of the 3rd Hokage, would also be the brother/sister of Asuma and I assume would have some sort of ninja talent.
This of course is going off what I have seen from Asuma and Konohamaru and their natural talent that they have shown us.
Seriously how do we not even know their names?
Fungaku Uchiha’s back story
The father of Sasuke and Itachi also had the Mangekyo Sharingan, which he obtained during the 3rd great ninja war.
Fungaku was also the leader of the Uchiha clan and incharge of the Village Police.
We know he was also one of four candidates along with Minato, Orochimaru and Jiriaya for the position of fourth Hokage.
These are all example of his skill, strength and talent and so it would have been nice to see a little more about him as well.
What did Madara do between fighting the 1st Hokage and finding Obito?
Now we know that Madara after being defeated by Hashirama then awakened his Reingan at a late age, but what I’m wondering is what did he do before that?
I mean he lived through the first, second and then third great ninja wars before his death, that is a long time to just sit around twiddling your thumbs until a half dead Obito falls into your lap.
With so many shinobi fighting, I cant believe he just sat in a cave waiting for his injuries to heal. Yes there was probably a lengthy healing process since his fight with the first Hokage, but still that’s a very long time to just sit in a cave.
So that is my list of nine stories, which could have been more interesting than Mecha Naruto.
Please let me know if you have any other suggestions, to what you would have preferred to see during the Naruto filler.
