Are the Sannin all exceptional outliers to what it means to be a Kage level?

Yes, this post obviously does not count Him. Nor does the pathetic "SM Jman" object frequently used as a porta potty by the local geriatric toad wildlife count either.

Akamaru is counted as a mindless obedient and unintelligent pet slave as he's the character that Isayama was inspired by when creating Mikasa. So when Nardo complained about Kiba cheating, it was deemed ok.

But the Sannin all use summons that are fairly intelligent, and capable of speech and thought.

Why isn't that counted as cheating? Are rules just ignored for the Sannin?
:wellshit

Could it be that the Sannin never passed the Chunin Exams because they relied on summons that per rules, count as outside help? :ahmm

No other Kage level has a technique that can think and act on its own intelligently. The Sannin are the only ones who do this. :ahmm

IIRC, it was stated at some point during part I or in some flashbacks that summoning three way deadlock was putting fight on entirely different level that no one, but this three ninja could achieve.
Hiruzen, minato, kabuto,Naruto,Kakashi and konohamaru all can summon talking animals. Even Tsume's canine companion can speak.
But yes, summon deadlock of great sage region is something only Sannin and their students are able to do.

It's not cheating just because the Sannin were the only ones smart enough to pick intelligent animals for their summons.

You can restrict summons for Orochimaru & Tsunade and they’re both still high kage level

:vegetak
At worst Tsunade bumps down to mid, still above Hebi Sasuke regardless though
:oldshrug
If we wanna talk about unfair let’s address getting to be born into clans descendants of actual fucking gods. Itachi is literally hard carried by his bloodline. Non Uchiha Itachi is like, low kage level at best, dude is legit entirely dependent on his heritage.

Tsunade was born a senju but it’s not like she depends on it, and the other 2 are clan less

:blessed

Fuck being born into that clan is so unfair that Kakashi, who isn’t even apart of that clan, became famous for getting that clans eye powers, legit carried him for most of his adult life as he became known entirely for his sharingan ability.

But sure, Sannin are unfair for summons

Eye powers aren't independent, sovereign entities though who can read, write and speak at an acceptable level.
