This Is The
Strongest Ino
Member In
The Ino-Shika-Cho trio in "Naruto" is now on its third generation across the original series and its spinoffs. While it is difficult to rank the individual members of the trio, given the varied parameters of their abilities, it can be safely said that there is one member they could never function without.
Despite starting out as a lazy kid at the beginning of the original series, Shikamaru Nara is now the right-hand man and chief advisor to Naruto Uzumaki, the Seventh Hokage. Even as a child, Shikamaru showed great potential, and had a proven IQ of over 200, as stated in the manga and the anime, setting him up as an exceptional and top-tier strategist for the series.
Although Shikamaru does not possess Naruto's incredible chakra reserves or Might Guy's and Rock Lee's exceptional taijutsu skills, he has nevertheless been a formidable adversary in any fight. Using nothing more than his strategies and Shadow Possession Technique, he has either defeated or assisted others in defeating some of the series' most deadly and powerful shinobi.
