I'm trying out the Naruto d20 rpg right now and I intend to have my players interact with Team 7 in a sort of training scuffle. It wouldn't really be a fight, as they would be chunnin while Team 7 would be genin.

I don't have much experience with the modern d20, which might be my problem, but I can see from the description of the base classes:

  • Naruto maps out perfectly to the Tough Hero class
  • Sakura maps out perfectly to the Dedicated Hero class

But I can't figure out what would be the base class for Sasuke. I'm thinking Smart Hero, but he seems to be more of an all-rounder. His fangirls would suggest some charisma and he seems to have decent at least physical stats.

I've checked the given builds but I don't see him anywhere, so I'm curious: if someone built him as a NPC which of the base classes he would start out in or have the most levels in?

If you're looking for subjective opinions about which traits the character should have Anime & Manga SE may be better place to ask this than here. – Joshua Aslan Smith Aug 21 '13 at 15:11
@JoshuaAslanSmith what you're saying is true but I think RPG knowledge is rar-er than manga knowledge thus it would be easier to find a d20 buff who happens to know the manga rather than a manga buff who knows the Modern d20 system. – George Bora Aug 21 '13 at 15:16
I agree, but I also think you may wait awhile to get an answer here, or end up answering it yourself. If you framed the question on Anime & Manga SE correctly they could answer it (As in you breakdown the core values of the different classes and then ask them which values they think more closely align with Sasuke). – Joshua Aslan Smith Aug 21 '13 at 15:17
I know nothing about the system, but as I see it, naruto is tough, sakura is dedicated, but sasuke is talented. That is why is more of an antihero most of the series, since, all throughout the series, he didn't have to put too much effort in to succeed. – kravaros Aug 22 '13 at 21:33
"Naruto maps out perfectly to the Tough Hero class" -- Total aside, but adult Naruto's highest stat is almost definitely Charisma i.e. force of personality. – starwed Aug 24 '13 at 20:12

The consensus in the comments and from what I can gather from other places is that the first levels should be in Smart Hero.

If somebody else wants to post another opinion as a answer I'll select it as the chosen answer.
