Will anyone in Naruto ever open all 8 gates?

Opening all 8 has been hyped since the technique's debut and it seemed like it would happen at one point or another in a desperate situation but will Gai or Lee really do it? The way things are going (omnipotent talk no jutsu) I'm not sure it will be necessary, which is kind of a bummer. Thoughts?

Probably at the end.

I can see lee going all 8 gates towards the end to save somebody.

It's never going to happen. Closest you get is Gai jumping around with different gates. I thought it had to be done sequentially buy apparently you can pick and choose whatever ones you want. Anyways, nope. Never happening.

i honestly think that gai is going to go all 8 gates against madara in order to save one of his students

I'd rather it be Lee even if he dies because he's had no development for a very long time. Seriously, Gai his Sensei has had way more developement and important roles than Lee. His role even in this arc so far has been little more than kicking an immobile Madara once. The 8th gate has been hyped or foreshadowed for something like 11 - 12 years. It needs to happen and Uchiha Madara seems to be the last chance for it to be used.

All of post time skip is like this. I'm fine with the show sticking with main characters, but the only teens to really do anything of note in the Shippuden era were Naruto, Sasuke, Shikamaru, Gaara, and Kabuto. Nobody else has done jack shit that lasted for like more than 1 episode/chapter.

Yes exactly. I was just especially disappointed with Lee since he had the most hype outside Naruto and Sasuke in part 1. And even compared to the rest of the rookie 9 members, Lee has had even less development than the tiny but they've had except maybe for Tenten.

Neji showed up just to get killed. Rock Lee has literally done nothing in nearly 300 chapters/episodes. Hinata got one chapter/episode. Tenten got a new weapon and we didn't even get to see her use it. Temari threw a wind attack at Madara. Ino stood in the background twice. Choji got an episode/chapter.

Rather than a bunch of boring one vs one fights with people like Kankuro and the Black Dude from the Raikage's place, I would have preferred this war arc have like Neji's team have to tackle a bad guy. Give Hinata's squad an Akatsuki member to face off against back when they were relevant. Anything to get some of these characters back in the fray to show how they've grown post-time skip.

I have a feeling Rock Lee will also go with Gai the Red Beast.

He would have died, but Naruto as usual asspulls things to prevent the death of a major character.
