Gai Profile Review
Might Guy is the leader of Team Guy, though much of his time with this team is focused on Rock Lee. Because Lee's goal in life is to master taijutsu, Guy's goal has become to teach Lee all that he knows about it. Because of Guy's dedication to Lee, Lee has modeled himself in his sensei's image, such as mimicking Guy's distinctive green jumpsuit and shiny bowl haircut (having already had Guy's characteristic thick eyebrows). Lee has also adopted Guy's "nice guy pose," which consists of giving a thumbs up, winking, and smiling with teeth so white they give the proverbial "ping." This action is often used by both Guy and Lee to indicate commitment to a statement they had just made, their highest form of a promise. Guy, and by extension Lee, lives his life by his own "My Rules" philosophy, which involves setting tough self-imposed penalties for failure in the belief that the punishment will make them stronger.

Gai Abilities
Guy specializes in using taijutsu, though unlike Lee, does so as a matter of preference. Instead he simply chooses not to use ninjutsu or genjutsu, even going so far as to use a regular disguise during one of the anime's filler arcs instead of the Transformation Technique. In the few instances that he has used ninjutsu, it has always been offscreen, such as when he summoned a large turtle prior to his first appearance. Through his mastery of taijutsu Guy specializes in the Strong Fist style of combat. Likewise, he can open at least six of the Eight Gates, each gate giving him a brief boosts in strength. As the self-proclaimed rival of Kakashi Hatake, Guy has developed an effective counter against Sharingan users: by focusing on their feet, Guy can both predict the movements of the enemy and negate the hypnotic abilities of the Sharingan that require eye contact.
