Rock Lee has no chance against Kakashi because the latter's Taijutsu prowess is more remarkable. Moreover, with his Sharingan, he can read Lee's movements and counter his attacks without sweat.
Nagato pushes Kakashi to the limit with two of his paths. However, if Kakashi was in better tactical position, then he likely could have overcome this opponent. Still, the fact the battle technically eliminates Kakashi means Nagato is stronger than Kakashi in at least some ways.
5 Stands No Chance Against: Might Guy
Guy is a Jonin of Konohagakure and Rock Lee's mentor. Like Lee, he is an expert in Taijutsu, and being his master, his skills surpass those of Lee. While Lee could open up to just seven gates, Guy had the power to open all eight.
1 Doesn't stand a chance against: Naruto
Naruto is Rock Lee's fellow underdog who got blessed by destiny. His starting point was even lower than that of Lee's, but after his almost inconceivable power boost, he and Rock Lee could not even be mentioned in the same sentence.
Naruto: 8 Characters Who Surpassed Kakashi By The End Of The7 Killer Bee. Killer Bee is the brother of Kumogakure's Fourth Raikage, Ay.6 Itachi Uchiha.5 Rock Lee.4 Might Guy.3 Obito Uchiha.2 Sasuke Uchiha.1 Naruto Uzumaki.
Even though Boruto's body isn't fully Otsutsukified, Momoshiki Otsutsuki remains far stronger than Naruto without the aid of Kurama.
Itachi wins because he is an Uchiha, meaning he is a natural when it comes to using the Sharingan, and not just any Uchiha, but one of the best in their history who could have made the fight against Madara himself easier – as stated by Kishimoto – plus he got 2 Sharingan eyes as opppsed to Kakashi's one Sharingan..
For the most part, Kakashi's absurd strength was associated with his ocular jutsu, which, to some extent, is a fair assumption. However, the events that followed after Kakashi lost his Sharingan in the Fourth Great Shinobi War clearly depict how strong of a shinobi he is on his own.
With that in mind, here are some of his strongest abilities.6 Unmatched Taijutsu.5 Leaf Hurricane.4 Primary Lotus.3 Drunken Fist.2 The First Seven Gates.1 The Eighth Gate Of Death.
7 Would Crush Him: Naruto Uzumaki
In his base form, he was strong enough to fight and overwhelm the same Madara that almost killed Guy. With his Six Paths Sage Mode, Naruto was levels above Guy in terms of power and could easily take on Madara, and even Kaguya in battle.
The truth is, compared to other Jonin, Kakashi is not actually low on chakra reserves. In fact, he has a pretty high capability. The weakness comes when battling the best villains in the series. Kakashi does not match up to the strongest and most gifted of legendary shinobi.
While Jiraiya has incredible power over ninjutsu and can summon powerful allies like Gamabunta, he would prove no match for Kakashi with the twin Mangekyou Sharingan. It's worth mentioning that some of Kakashi's most powerful jutsu can strike at Jiraiya from afar, while many of Jiraiya's jutsu are close-range.
No, not at all. A lot of people get this misconception because of how OP naruto got with Kurama inside him. Yes, he wouldn't be close to being a god tier in the verse but he still would be one of the strongest shinobi in history. Naruto has learned two deadly jutsu, rasengan and rasenshuriken.
Her skills with Gentle Fist were immense, thanks to receiving training from Neji. When compared to Sakura, however, Hinata doesn't fare too well, primarily due to Sakura's ability to regenerate from any damage using the Byakugou. In return, one clean hit from Sakura would be enough to defeat Hinata.
Furthermore, Sasuke was able to obtain the Rinnegan Eye and the Eternal Mangekyo, giving him another edge against Kakashi. While Kakashi is a brilliant tactician and generally a powerful warrior, he just wouldn't be able to measure up to Sasuke Uchiha as he is now.
Kakashi had already lost his Sharingan at this point and this weakened him quite a bit. With Naruto Uzumaki, the Seventh Hokage, being considered the strongest of all time, it is quite clear that the weakest of all Hokage is one of Kakashi Hatake and Tsunade Senju.
14 Rock Lee
By the latter half of the story, he was capable of opening up to 6 gates and that alone makes him one of the fastest Naruto characters. Lee could easily outpace most characters in the story, which is nothing short of impressive.
1) Rock Lee
While Rock Lee might have perfected Taijutsu, he doesn't stand a chance against Jiraiya.
Sasuke was stated to be the strongest Uchiha to ever have been born, including Madara. So, obviously, his powers do exceed Madara's. With his Choku-tomou Rinnegan and Indra's arrow, he is almost invincible. As a result, he is also one of the Naruto characters who can defeat Madara.
Madara Uchiha is among the most powerful shinobi to have ever lived, and his power only increased when he attained the power of the Sage of the Six Paths. He was able to fend off both Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha for a time in this form, and Kakashi Hatake would likely be unable to subdue Madara on his own.
However, Kakashi was shown to be a ninja prodigy even before he gained the Sharingan, meaning the statement of Kakashi being weaker without the Sharingan is an unjust assumption. Analyzing his current skills and achievements reveals how strong he truly is, even without the visual jutsu.

|Characters Jiraiya Would Lose To
After finding that he can't land a single hit on Obito, he would retreat and summon Ma and Pa. If Sage Mode isn't enough to land a hit on Obito, Jiraiya might attempt to use sound-based genjutsu. This enables Obito to be hit and killed, though Jiraiya would have no idea that Obito can use Izanagi.
Is Naruto weak now without Kurama Fans are made aware that he is no longer a superhuman immediately after the death of Kurama. Naruto can't rely on Kurama's power anymore, which means power-ups such as the chakra cloaks, the Nine-Tails chakra mode, and his Kurama Mode aren't accessible to him anymore.
Madara also went on to call Might Guy the strongest fighter that he ever faced. All of this happened when Madara was a ten tail Jinchuriki and not in his base form. Given Might Guy's power levels after opening all the Gates, he would be able to beat Kurama.
