In Naruto, ninjas fight for victory with their powerful Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, Illusion and even Kekkei Genkai. And one thing that cannot be ignored is ninja's intelligence, that is, the ability of analyzing the combat situation and making a perfect plan.
Shino is an excellent and reliable ninja. Besides the Secret Jutsu, his level head and strong analysis ability are also his weapons that help him win the victory. Whether fighting Hidden Sound Zaku or Kankuro, Shino used his brilliant tactics to win them both.
Kakashi has a very brilliant mind in addition to his powerful strength. He is good at analyzing the strength of both sides and developing strategies according to the fighting environment.
Minato also has a cool mind. In fact, except his improved Flying Raijin Kunai, Sage Art, Rasengan and Sealing Jutsu, he doesn't show any other powerful Ninjutsu. However, Naruto games fans all believe that he is a strong ninja because of his high intelligence, and especially when he fought Mask Man, his tactics played a very big role.
Although Shikamaru doesn't show anything special except his Secret Jutsu, with an IQ above 200, he has still become an excellent ninja.
When he was only 7 he began to think like Hokage and after the extermination of his entire family, he tried to protect Sasuke even at the cost of becoming a Traitor. So we can see that Itachi Uchiha is strategic talent in Naruto.
