Naruto Characters that Should Have Gotten More Screen Time

This 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

1 Neji Hyuga

Y U DiE NeJi!

2 Kurenai Yuhi

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

3 Shisui Uchiha Shisui Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
4 Deidara Deidara is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

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

5 Temari Temari is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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

6 Kimimaro Kimimaro is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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

7 Iruka Umino

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

8 Sakumo Hatake
9 Itachi Uchiha Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.
10 Hanabi Hyuga

YES HANABI

The Contenders

11 Sasori Sasori is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
12 Kiba Inuzuka
13 Haku
14 Shino Aburame

Such a cool character, he was OP in first Naruto and still good in early Shippuden. Such a wasted
character.

15 Kisame Hoshigaki Kisame Hoshigaki is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.
16 Pein
