Naruto Characters that Should Have Gotten More Screen TimeThis went well with my RWBY one and I decided to do one for Naruto. Lots of characters in Naruto get pushed off to the side more than they should. Sometimes you wish these characters replaced the main characters. Now to avoid hate from the rabid fanbase of Naruto, these are just my opinions. You're free to add in your own. I'll leave ten suggestions and the rest is up to you.
The Top Ten
Y U DiE NeJi!
They could've done so many things with her Genjutsu, and her abilities, she has so much swag it pains me to know they threw it away - Enmanu16
Didn't they have a ninja interview on Kurenai in one of the Naruto Shippuden shorts? - TwilightKitsune
Deidara is my favorite character. Courtesy of fillers, I got more scenes with him in the anime than in the manga, for which I am grateful. Since I find him to be such an outstanding character, I would have appreciated even more scenes with him. - Crwth
Temari's one of the few female characters I think that didn't get screwed over. She was sassy and brave. Best female character in Naruto. - HoneyClover
Giving him a separate slot from the Sound Four. His relationship with Jugo was a nice contrast to how his clan normally acted and his overall character was something that could have made up for an interesting story arc. - CrimsonShark
What did he do aside of scolding people? - Enmanu16
I was torn between Temari and Iruka, but Iruka really DID deserve more screentime. Once the initial arc was over, he basically got that filler arc with Mizuki and that was about it. I loved this guy and he needed more love overall - taishisohma
Such a cool character, he was OP in first Naruto and still good in early Shippuden. Such a wasted
