Answers I keep easily available for different reasons

What are the smaller symbols over larger ones for?

I had to ask ShonenSuki something, and I happened to see your post while I was there. I can't read kanji or any other Japanese writing, but I do know that those smaller symbols are called furigana. They're used to help the reader with pronunciation, I think. Darth Havoc (talk) 04:07, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Darth Havoc is right, the smaller signs are furigana, usually written in hiragana or katakana. The basically show how a kanji is supposed to be pronounced. For example, the kanji 人柱力 (jinchūriki) would have the hiragana じんちゅうりき as the furigana. However, they can also be used to bring more nuance to the text. To take 人柱力 as an example again: it wouldn't be strange to see these kanji with the katakana ナルト (Naruto), for example when an Akatsuki member is talking about Naruto as the jinchūriki of the Nine-Tails. I've also seen the kanji for younger brother (弟, otōto) and older brother (兄, ani) with the names for Sasuke and Itachi as furigana, or those of Gaara and Kankurō. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 09:40, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Narutopedia Ranks

Those are obsolete. We used to alias bureaucrat=kage, sysop=jonin, rollback=tokubetsu jonin, user=genin, anon=academy student just for some fun. However I removed this recently because people started to ask for "chunin exams" and "promotions" and were turning simple permission flags into a social status game. The userboxes were created then. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) May 16, 2009 @ 19:17 (UTC)

Parallels to "foreign" games and series

Some people tend to add parallels to other games and serieses hinting that Naruto is some kind of a rip-off of that game or series. From the top of my head I can only recall the parallel put to some monster in Dragon Ball called Ino Shika Cho, some minor (I think) Naruto character had "strong resembelence" to some Bleach character, and then we have these quotes: "Rock Lee (like several other characters through the series) hold a strong resemble and may even be based off of video game character Wangtang from Capcom's Arcade game, Power Stone. (...)". Are these things okay to have in the articles, or should they be removed? ~Hakinu (talk | contribs) 21:13, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Those kind of statements are pure speculation, they have no basis to them. Frankly you can round up a few dozen anime/manga/games, look for similarities between characters in them, and you're almost guaranteed to find some. If you're looking for something you're going to find it, that doesn't mean it's at all relevant to the series. If someone had some citation that Kishimoto was influenced by something, coming from an interview, then ya it makes a good trivia note. But comparing naruto to X of Y type of media and saying that part of naruto MIGHT be based on it, is junk. There's far more complexity to that, it could be completely random, or it could be that both of the things were influenced by the same thing, that doesn't mean any relevance between them. For example, Soul Eater has Shinigami, Bleach has Shinigami, and Death Note has Shinigami. All are based of Japanese Shinigami, that doesn't mean that the series have any connection to each other or were based on each other in any way. While this one is obvious a lot of these subtle "might be based off of" may actually be because there was something they both were based on in Japanese myth which we, as foreigners are not familiar with. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Jun 3, 2009 @ 21:22 (UTC)



Re: Now this is utterly embarrassing.

Hiya, long time no see ^^

before I do anything wrong, you still want this page deleted? —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 00:05, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

^^ There you go. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 08:43, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Eyooo~ :D

Welcome back. Sure I still accept block suggestions, even though the amount has dropped since Omnibender got promoted. Anyway, the character in question isn't a filler. His name is Okisuke. He is a Samurai that served as bodyguard for the samurai general Mifune. There isn't much more to say.

I hope I will see your signature in some notification about new edits. ^_^ Jacce | Talk | Contributions 04:30, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

Aspect Ratio

Hey there, I don't have much time to spend with the Narutopedia and I'd normally do this myself but is it possible you could go through all the images before Shippuden Episode 54 and if they appear to be landscape, not portrait, tag them with {{Widescreen}} ? It'll help to fix incorrect ratios on such images. Thanks! :) --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 12:51, September 30, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, I haven't been active at all lately. Is it too late? ~Hakinu (talk | contribs) 04:18, October 23, 2012 (UTC)
