Why can't Lee use ninjutsu?

    I seriously never picked up on this. Someone clue me in?

    Is it a birth defect? I mean, he obviously has chakra, and presumably opening Gates involves some sort of supernatural technique.

    I think it's related to realworld disorders like dyscalculia or dyslexia.

    He sucked badly in ninjutsu, so he focused all his strength and time in taijutsu.

    It's never really explained why; Gai simply mentions that he has no skill with ninjutsu and genjutsu.

    Lee has chakra and can control it enough to cling onto walls and trees and to walk on water, however, beyond that hasn't been seen.

    He lacks natural talent for Ninjutsu or Genjutsu he had to work his ass off and have heavy one on one teaching to even be good in taijutsu as even in the acadamy he was sub par in that

    This usually comes up in fanfic.

    Most of them say that Lee's coil, while big enough to cling to trees and water, are not big enough to carry enough chakra to do justu.


    I really like this and, until it is actually stated one day, will accept the fanfic theory.

    Anyway, he can't because he isn't a ninja, gai has said it. He can't use any ninjutsu so use the taijutsu. That's what i can remember but i'm not too sure about.

    Lee obviously has an immense chakra capacity, as it spews out of him when he opens gates. It seems he simply has some sort of learning disability that precludes him from the entire realm of chakra-molding attacks, and limits him to the use of raw chakra to power physical attacks.

    Jiraiya started teaching the Amee orphans how to draw chakra out, so my guess would be that since he cant forme any kind of jutsu he probably cant draw is own chakra and use it, [email protected] does Tenten has ever done any ninjutsu or genjutsu at all too?

    Inability to release chakra effectively... I wonder if he had a special exam to pass the ninja academy if the same test is given every graduation time.

    Same can be said about every normal civilian in the naruto universe.

    Even if he had no skill, surely with hard work, he'd be able to do some?

    I just consider him physically unable to do ninjutsu.

    Edit: Friday brings up a good point...how the hell did Lee graduate the Academy if he can't do ninjutsu like Bunsin no Jutsu?

    Do I smell a plot hole? :ho

    Lee's inability to use ninjutsu is comparative to the lack of ninjutsu from all of the Narutoverse's civilians.

    Considering the fact we have seen Lee mold chakra for special tree/water walking and the final test for the academy is the Bunshin no Jutsu; I believe he CAN use ninjutsu, however it's so crappy that it simply isn't worth improving.

    I don't believe the Academy Graduation Exam is always Bunshin no Jutsu. Naruto's disappointment at Iruka's announcement might imply that the technique may vary between exam.

    Nonetheless, the requirement is some form of ninjutsu and not merely taijutsu.

    It's as PureWIN said. They don't test you on taijutsu, it's solely ninjutsu-based on whether or not you graduate. Lee shouldn't have graduated, from what we've been told.

    I don't believe anything has said Lee can't do the most basic of ninjutsu, like Henge no Jutsu, Kakuremino no Jutsu, or Kawarimi no Jutsu.

    So basically he switched to focusing on taijutsu because he didn't want to remain on Part I Sakura's worthlessness ability level. :hehee

    Aside from him solely using taijutsu. If someone can only use basic ninjutsu, surely they'd suppliment their taijutsu with what little they could do?

    Not if his teacher convinced him not to bother with any ninjutsu. :mgnt

    It would also depend on how well the student could use the basic techniques. Lee may have been just passable and wasteful in term of chakra, thus making it inefficient to try supplementing his taijutsu with ninjutsu.

    As somebody above mentioned, I always heard that he had underdeveloped chakra coils. In fact, I passed that theory on many times as fact. Hmm... I guess I'd better go back and fix that.

    Anyway, I heard about it so much that I figured it was from a databook or something...

    I guess not.

    Maybe Sakura/Tsunade's healing can be useful for the first time since Shippuden started and cure him of whatever deficiency he has?

    He simply gave up on it, since focusing on taijutsu would bring about the quickest and most noticeable results.

    He does have chakra, and uses it constantly in gouken. It is what strengthens his limbs.
    Since chakra production isn't the problem, that leaves chakra molding. So, it becomes that he cannot mold chakra to save his life.

    Lee simply has horrid chakra control.
    Having such a low score in seals may be a reason.
    One must also realize, he wasn't devoted to training until he met gai.
    He was most surely a failure at life.

    So, he hasn't trained his ninjutsu since before his failure days.

    If he started trying to learn ninjutsu now, with his work ethic, I am sure he could.

    he simply can't because Kishi said so....

    but it can sort of be thought about as a physical disability - talent wise, at least.

    he can control his chakra and such, but he has no talent at all at doing ninjutsu or genjutsu, to the point thta he simply can't do them.

    if we look at it from the standpoint of some people having greater spiritual awareness or predictive ability, as opposed to others, it's not too crazy of a notion. it's just that instead of or world, where those who'd possess said awareness or ability are rare, in the Naruto world, they're common - and lee is the "odd-ball" ninja who lacks in those departments (at least he appears that way because he's the only confirmed person to simply not be capable of using ninjutsu or genjutsu)

    As for the Test.

    Gai took notice of him when Lee was still in school. Gai probably pull some strings with the Hokage or school pricnple. (Like getting sign copies of Icha Icha)

    That's because Gai is a taijutsu specialist... it would make sense that all of his students are taijutsu specialist as well.

    Um...wasn't it said that Lee's chakra coils were underdeveloped, so he can't really expel chakra much?

    naster, Lee and Neji are Taijutsu practitioners. Tenten uses weapons, though I am sure that she knows some Taijutsu, being around her team.

    No thats just bad fanfiction Gai even said Lee lacks talent for Ninjutsu or Genjutsu It's likely he isn't very good at chakra moulding he has no problem expelling chakra in things like water walking

    He lacks talent to make good use of it, so he focus on what he knows. There are students like that you know.

    Kishimoto probably just wanted a character that couldn't use nin or gen because it's interesting.
