Okay I really did try to look before I posted this but seriously there is like 75 pages with 15 posts each. That's just to much work. Anyway this post is about something Zabuza said. He said that Kakashi was in the his village's book as the man who has copied over or at least 1000 techniques.
And Kakashi has constantly been considered a ninja to be afraid of because of this. My question is But we haven't seen more than 10 copied techniques this whole time? Why? And of those 10 most were in the beginning and 2 were in the last few chapters.
And I'm not talking about from a writers standpoint because I get that Kishimoto probably doesn't want too use a technique and then realize that technique is superpowerful and have to explain why it didn't beat some future villain when it obviously could have.
Kakashi tends to use his same attacks over and over as much as people who don't have sharingan. And I get some might say that just because he copied 1000 techniques does not mean that he can use all of them, and he would waste too much chakra to use them because he would need to use the sharingan to use it but at least on the second point, is false. Just from seeing Lee before his Chunin Exam fight he mimiced Lee's moves greatly without a hint of sharingan during this fight. Even if Kakashi can use only like 100 of the moves and most of them are weak, 1. Why would Kakashi copy weak techniques anyway. and 2. There would have to be enough out of 100 for at least 40 to be useful. I mean really we see more copied attacks from Naruto movies than the manga.
So basically post a feasible even if slightly, reason why Kakashi cannot, will not, but definitily does not use the majority of his so-called 100 copied techniques when we see them? By that I meann don't post he uses all of them in the missions we don't see.
