So, I have gathered some inspiring messages that this awesome young man had said throughout the series.

What is Rock Lee's catchphrase?
I don’t Rock Lee has any favorite catchphrase. The catchphrase in this context refers to words this protagonist says multiple times in the entire Naruto. It is more like a verbal expression.
Who is stronger Rock Lee or Might Guy?
No. Rock Lee stands no chance against Might Guy. In the series, Might Guy can open eight gates while Lee is seven.
Is Guy Rock Lee's dad?
Despite their similar features, Guy is not Rock Lee’s dad. Guy has clarified this matter while the younger one is still in the academy.
So, why do they look similar as if they are brothers? This is because Rock Lee wants to be like his idol with respect for Guy’s mentorship.
Before Lee joined Team Guy, he looks different. But since joining, Lee changed his appearance drastically.
Is Rock Lee stronger than Naruto?
Rock Lee could defeat some Naruto characters such as Sakura, Darui, Shikamaru Nara. However, Naruto is a lot stronger than Rock Lee.
After all, the legendary seventh Hokage possesses the spirit of the nine-tailed fox, which is rumored to be the strongest one.
Moreover, Rock Lee is best in taijutsu and is one of the best persons adept in hand-to-hand combat. Still, this skill might not be enough to defeat the future Hokage.
