Nara Shikamaru is one of my Favorite Character, His EyeQ Is over 200, and he is the only one that becomes a Chuunin, Even Known his life isn't what he planned and he's Lazy, his skills to gather great plans in that one stance and his Tactics used against Temari show he is a great Shinobi!

I find I have a lot in common with Shikamaru.
1. we're both lazy (I was about to say that was to much to pick up the pencil and answer all the questions on the exit exams)
2. were not as emotional as those around us. I'm sorry but I find little humor in things my friends find funny.
3. we both have dark hair (mine is dark brown and his is black, but many people think my hair is black)(I guess in the dark my hair could be confused for being black).
So we have plenty in common.
How's this relevant to anything?
well I'm compairing myself with the charcter Nara Shikamaru who's being discused(though it been a bit since this has last been posted in).

Shikky is the best character in the entire anime!
But really, he is my favorite character, mainly because of how much he reminds me of myself. Not AS MUCH now, but early on, Shik was very layed back and didnt take anything too seriously. He was (and is) probably the most intelligent ninja in the entire Naruto world. His strategic skills during battle are just a joy to watch, especially in the fight against Temari. Seriously, that fight right there is a top 3 one in the series just because of how brilliant Shik was during it.
Also, it is great to see what a magnificant leader he has become, which was necessary as he was the first of the Genin to become a Chuunin, and they couldn't have chosen a more suitable candidiate.

Shikamaru is definitely one of my favorite characters, but unlike MOST people here, I actually do not have much respect for him. Although I do enjoy watching his fights more than anyone elses, it brings me down how little will power he has to become strong, even if just for the sake of Konoha. Though he displays good leadership and is intelligent, outsmarting an opponent can only do so much unless you have the proper abilities. If Shika wasn't so lazy and trained more, learning more techniques (which shouldn't be too hard for him) and becoming stronger, he'd be undefeatable combined with his high IQ.
He really just finds a way to catch his opponent with his shadow, most of the time to trap them in his Shadow Imitation. But he doesn't have the ability to fight stronger ninja from there. He probably had little he could really do to beat Temari during his fight once he outsmarted, especially with so little Chakra left. If he trained more, he would actually be able to apply ability (with more Chakra he'd have) and do away with her. But that was just a spar in the Chuunin Exams. When he fought Tayuya, it was the real thing, and when he finally caught her, he was just too weak to finish her off, even with his brains. If Temari hadn't come, I doubt he would have even survived.

Master Zhang He
ex. 1: His chakra would have ran out and he would have lost the match anyway.
ex. 2: They were 8 Chuunin and 1 Jounin I believe and he was only a Genin at the time, so he was outclassed.
ex. 3: Tayuya used a summoning to weaken him and she was also near Jounin level and with the cursed seal it only ups her power, giving her an un-fair advantage.

he doesnt win, he gives up most of the time, or lets someone else take over because he cant win...
ex 1: Fight with Temari, give's up
ex 2: 9 Sound Soldiers, Asuma come's
ex 3: Fight with Tayuya, Temari save's him
Those are most of his fights with oponents stronger than Konohamaru...OMG HE MADE A FORMATION TO GO AFTER SASUKE, who couldnt make that formation...he is smart, all there is to it

Shikamaru's fights are Intenses with a capitil I

He must play GO a lot.
Shikamaru may know little jutsu but with them and his mind, he is hard to beat. Even when it looks like he's down, he's really thinking ahead. Like that battle against Tayuya, where he "supposedly " didn't aim with his last kunai, but it really was him thinking a few moves ahead.

Yeah, he figured out which fingers controlled the movement of each individual summon with just 9 attacks and captured them.

Yeah, It dosn't take a genius to figure out the distance your enemy is standing from the wall.
How about the time they were retrieving Sasuke and he formed a perfect formation on the day they began to head off? Or he figured out an escape from Jirobo's Dorodomu jutsu (that dude's big wall thingy that sucks out Chakra). I really did think he was cowarding out of the situation. Sure was like "Wow!" And I him figuring Tayuya's Summoning technique by using the rest of his ammo.... He IS smart.

Yeah, It dosn't take a genius to figure out the distance your enemy is standing from the wall. Although it was pretty sweet. He gave poor little Kin a concussion.
LOL yeah that was pretty funny.
