Kiba because of the feral idea behind his attacks. He starts off with simple, animal based taijutsu with Akamaru, but when he needs to kick it into gear, that double headed wolf is a beast. I'd love to be able to kick that much ninja butt with a dog, but i'm more of a cat person, so if I could make that work instead, that'd be great.
Kankuro because he brings a different form of tactics to his fights than ninjas like Shikamaru and Temari. It seems like his puppets are never the same from battle to battle, which shows the time and effort he put into making them the perfect killing machines after Sasori created the main three.
I kind of have to like Kiba. He is my favorite characters teammate. I love big dogs, so the fact that his partner is one just makes him all the more awesome. I want a St. Bernard myself, but my mate hates dogs with a passion, so I don't think I'll ever be getting one. But just thinking about running around, playing with a big, fluffy dog, an animal you don't have to worry about being too rough with, an animal that knows when you are being playful and will only nip lightly, just sounds like so much fun! Not to mention, if you are kind to it, it will protect you in return!
I like Kankuro as well, but, while the puppets are unique and it does show a lot of care, time and effort on his part, they just seem (to me) like they'd be a hinderance in battle. Kankuro is kinda hot, though...
But Temari is by far the most attractive of the sand siblings. She's powerful and mature.
