You are currently viewing Would Naruto And Sasuke At Their Strongest Still Fail Kakashi’s Bell Exercise [Explained]

Kakashi’s bell test was the first test for the member of Team 7 including Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura. This was the test in which Kakashi held two bells and asked the team members to grab one bell from him within time.

This was the test in which Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura got training from Kakashi and didn’t know much about their abilities and powers. They failed the test because of a lack of teamwork.

They tried to grab the bell individually and failed the actual test. The main aim of this test is to gauge the teamwork of a team.

Many fans argue that what happened if Naruto and Sasuke would at their strongest.

Would they pass this test, or still fail?

Let’s try to find the answer to it…

Would Naruto And Sasuke At Their Strongest Overcome Kakashi’s Bell Excercise?

According to me, this is an intriguing situation. Both Naruto and Sasuke were the strongest characters in the Naruto series, with immense skills, abilities, and experience.

Kakashi Hatake designed the bell exercise to gauge not only the shinobi’s physical strength but also teamwork, strategy, and the ability to think differently.

What you would expect from Naruto and Sasuke when they are at their strongest?

Naruto and Sasuke both possess a formidable arsenal of powers.

Naruto Incredible Power

Naruto, a jinchuriki of the Nine-Tailed Fox is an owner of immense prowess and techniques such as

  1. He is the master of Sage Mode.
  2. He has full control over the Nine-Tails chakra.
  3. He can access the Six Path powers.

All of these things combined give him incredible strength, speed, and durability.

Sasuke’s Proficiency

On the other hand, Sasuke also possesses this prowess and techniques:

  1. Sharingan
  2. Mangekyou Sharingan
  3. Rinnegan

He is also a master of a variety of formidable ninjutsu, genjutsu, and his own Sasanoo.

Kakashi’s Tactical Brilliance

The above discussion stated that Naruto and Sasuke have incredible strength, and powers to defeat their opponent. Whereas we can not underestimate the Hokage, and Copy Ninja Kakashi Hatake.

He is known for his tactical brilliance, intellect, and exceptional combat skills. However, his physical strength has some limitations, he is a master strategist, and able to analyze his opponents’ strengths and weaknesses.

Kakashi can copy his opponent’s techniques at the same time he performed. Kakashi gained mastery in Sahringan and lightning-based jutsu.

Hidden Aim Behind The Bell Exercise (Testing Teamwork, Creativity & Exploiting Weaknesses)

Kakashi didn’t conduct the bell exercise to allow shinobi to showcase only their raw power; Kakashi also gauges the ability to work as a team and think creatively.

Kakashi already knew the weakness of Naruto and Sasuke, and that’s the reason he plotted the challenge in such a manner so that he can tailor to exploit their weaknesses or separate them to diminish their combat strength.

Kakashi’s Expertise in Jutsu Analysis And Countermeasures

Kakashi’s ability to counter his opponent’s jutsu poses a significant challenge for Naruto and Sasuke.

No matter how strong they are, Kakashi could effectively nullify or evade their attacks and disrupt their coordination. This way he could potentially neutralize their strengths and make it difficult for them to grab the bells from him.

Kakashi’s intellect and cleverness make it challenging for them to overcome the bell test.


In conclusion, while Naruto and Sasuke are incredibly powerful shinobi, the result of the Kakashi’s bell test would depend on many factors, including:

  1. Circumstances.
  2. Their mindset.
  3. Specific strategies employed by them.

All the above discussions make it conceivable that even at their strongest, Naruto and Sasuke could still find the bell test exercise a challenging task. Without applying a smart approach, teamwork, and creativity they would be unable to overcome Kakashi’s formidable skills and tactics.
