Welcome back to Naruto Battles, where our favorite Naruto characters (and sometimes outside characters!) face off and your votes determine the winner! This week's battle is Maito Gai vs Deidara!

(Color Battle results can be found at the bottom of this card)

Maito Gai

Because of his lack of skill with ninjutsu and genjutsu, Guy did not seem to have a very promising future as a shinobi when he first applied to the Academy. Sakumo Hatake, however, sensed in Guy a willingness to succeed, what he believed was a great strength yet to be fully realised. Sakumo's son, Kakashi Hatake, agrees with this years later during the Fourth Shinobi World War, calling Guy stronger than himself. Over the years, others have echoed the Hatakes' views: Itachi Uchiha warns others not to underestimate Guy; Kisame Hoshigaki, after being defeated by Guy, is impressed that Guy could fight him on two prior occasions without using some of his more powerful jutsu; Madara Uchiha calls Guy the most exciting opponent he's had since fighting Hashirama Senju. Despite his permanent damage from the Fourth Great Shinobi War officially ending his ninja career, Guy still proved as powerful as ever. Ultimately, Guy became recognized as a legendary shinobi.


Deidara was a very powerful S-rank missing-nin whose abilities earned him recognition within Akatsuki. Even the organization's leader, Pain, praised Deidara's abilities, openly admitting that he was something unique, and that his loss was a major blow to the group. At different times, Deidara single-handedly defeated and captured Gaara, Shukaku's jinchūriki and the Fifth Kazekage, as well as Isobu despite fighting in its home territory. He also fought on equal grounds with Sasuke Uchiha, an Uchiha clan prodigy, despite his techniques being at an elemental disadvantage against those of Sasuke.

So who wins!?
