Boruto naruto the movie
Boruto Uzumaki and the Secrets Fans Might Not Know!
Boruto was created by author Masashi Kishimoto with the intention of making Uzumaki Naruto a father figure after the conclusion of the Naruto series. Despite their father-son relationship, Boruto is depicted completely differently from his father in terms of appearance, personality, and abilities. Let’s explore Boruto Uzumaki – the “golden boy of the Hidden Leaf Village” in the following article!
Boruto Uzumaki’s Background
Who is Boruto?
Whose child is Boruto? Boruto is the child of the main characters, Uzumaki Naruto and Hyuga Hinata. This means that Boruto is the legitimate “descendant of the ancestors.” Here is a rundown of his impressive lineage:
His paternal grandfather is the Fourth Hokage, Namikaze Minato, who is considered one of the strongest ninjas in history and is known as the “Yellow Flash of the Leaf Village.”
His paternal grandmother is the former Jinchuuriki of the Nine-Tails, Kushina Uzumaki, a powerful kunoichi with exceptional sealing techniques from the Whirlpool Country.
His father is the Seventh Hokage, Naruto, who saved the ninja world during the Fourth Great Ninja War.
His mother is the heir of the Hyuga clan, Hyuga Hinata.
He is the apprentice of Uchiha Sasuke, a ninja who is considered one of the strongest in the shinobi world.
He is the student of the Third Hokage’s grandson, Sarutobi Konohamaru.
Not only does Boruto possess the strongest bloodlines and receive training from formidable ninjas, but he is also aided by many of his father’s friends – outstanding ninjas who have close ties to powerful entities in the ninja world. With such an impressive background, it’s no surprise that many fans jokingly refer to Boruto as the “golden face of the Hidden Leaf Village.”
How old is Boruto?
According to the author’s introduction, Boruto is 5 years old when Naruto becomes the Seventh Hokage. In Boruto: Naruto the Movie, he is already 12 years old. In Boruto: Next Generations, our main character has grown into a 16-year-old young man.
Appearances of Boruto Uzumaki
He first appears in the final chapter, Chapter 700, of the Naruto manga. Later, Uzumaki Boruto becomes the main character in the film Boruto: Naruto the Movie (2015). The main storyline of the movie revolves around Boruto’s training journey to become a great ninja and surpass his father.
Following that, the Boruto: Next Generations manga and anime series were officially released. The manga begins by summarizing the events of Boruto: Naruto the Movie and continues with his subsequent development. Meanwhile, the anime starts when Boruto enters the Ninja Academy of the Hidden Leaf Village, where he meets his teammates Uchiha Sarada and Mitsuki, as well as his instructor, Sarutobi Konohamaru.
Through the hints embedded in the Boruto: Next Generations anime and manga, fans can somewhat envision Boruto’s future as he grows up and find answers to the question of who Boruto will marry. Many fans believe that his future partner will be none other than Uchiha Sarada.
Boruto Uzumaki’s Ninjutsu Abilities
Although currently only a Genin, Boruto’s power is rated on par with a Chunin. He can master all three nature transformations: Lightning, Water, and Wind, and possesses impressive ninjutsu. Let’s take a look at his notable ninjutsu.
The Gentle Fist is a distinctive fighting style of the Hyuga clan. Although Boruto didn’t inherit the Byakugan from his mother, he can still use the Gentle Fist to attack his opponents’ chakra points. Therefore, Boruto’s close combat abilities are formidable.
Shadow Clone Technique
The Shadow Clone Technique is one of Naruto’s signature ninjutsu. As Naruto’s son, Boruto is also taught this technique. While he can’t create as many clones as Naruto, Boruto can create and control at least four shadow clones.
Boruto Uzumaki has entered into a contract with the Giant Snake Garaga and has summoned this creature in several battles.
Rasengan is the signature jutsu of the Uzumaki family, created by the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze. Boruto has perfected and enhanced the power of this technique by creating the “Vanishing Rasengan” – a combination of Rasengan and Lightning-style chakra.
When unleashed, the Vanishing Rasengan disappears, making it difficult for opponents to track the attack and allowing Boruto to deliver a surprise and powerful blow. With this jutsu, Boruto is able to defeat Momoshiki Otsutsuki.
Momoshiki Otsutsuki left a mysterious Karma seal on Boruto Uzumaki’s body. It is not exactly a jutsu, and it can even endanger Boruto’s life. However, when activated, the Karma seal grants Boruto certain special abilities, such as flight and chakra absorption.
Chakra absorption is a special ability Boruto possesses when activating the Karma seal. Boruto has used it twice, once when he rescued Konohamaru in a battle against Kashin Koji, and another time when Momoshiki took control of his body and Boruto absorbed chakra from Naruto.
Jougan – The Pure Eye
Jougan, also known as the Pure Eye, is a new eye in the world of shinobi, possessed only by Boruto. The Jougan allows Boruto to see the flow of chakra, detect the weaknesses of opponents, and even see through other dimensions. The true extent of its powers is yet to be revealed.
Space-Time Portal from Karma
The Space-Time Portal is a special jutsu created from the Karma seal. It can open a pathway to any space requested by its wielder. Boruto and Kawaki unintentionally activated it, transporting themselves to a dimension where Naruto was held captive. Thanks to this ability, they were able to rescue the Seventh Hokage.
Lesser-Known Facts About the Boruto Series
Boruto was originally meant to have the Byakugan
In the world of shinobi, Bloodline Limits can be passed down to future generations. However, Boruto and his younger sister Himawari do not possess the Byakugan, despite their mother being from the Hyuga clan.
The author, Kishimoto, explained that he initially intended for both siblings to have the Byakugan but forgot to depict it in the final chapters of Naruto. In the special one-shot chapter “The Day Naruto Became Hokage,” the author corrected this mistake by having Himawari activate the Byakugan. As for Boruto, he possesses the Jougan, the Pure Eye, instead of the Byakugan.
The Teacher-Student Relationship between Sasuke and Boruto was inspired by Piccolo and Gohan
Kishimoto mentioned on a TV program that Sasuke becoming Boruto’s mentor was inspired by the Dragon Ball Z series. When Goku died or was on a new adventure, Piccolo took care of and trained Gohan. Due to Gohan’s influence, Piccolo gradually reformed. Many fans believe that Boruto’s character and mindset will play a role in Sasuke’s transformation.
Boruto’s name is a tribute to Neji
During the Great Ninja War, Neji sacrificed himself to protect Naruto and Hinata. His death left a deep impact on fans. Since Neji’s name means “screw,” Naruto and Hinata named their firstborn son Boruto, which means “bolt,” as a tribute to their fallen comrade.
The relationship between Boruto Uzumaki and Naruto mirrors the author’s real-life experience
After becoming Hokage, Naruto became incredibly busy and had no time to care for his family. This strained the father-son bond between Boruto and Naruto. This relationship reflects the real-life experience of Kishimoto and his own children. Kishimoto devoted most of his time to his work, neglecting his children. Though he now tries to make amends, the lost time from the past cannot be regained.
Combining Multiple Chakra Attributes into the Rasengan
Boruto Uzumaki has the ability to use three different natural chakra types: Lightning, Wind, and Water, with Lightning being his dominant nature.
While learning the Rasengan from Konohamaru, Boruto unintentionally combined Lightning chakra into the Rasengan. This caused the attack to disappear momentarily and then reappear, making it difficult for opponents to predict its trajectory and successfully evade it. Over time, he was able to incorporate Wind chakra into the Rasengan, similar to his father’s past abilities.
Momoshiki Otsutsuki’s Vessel
Momoshiki Otsutsuki infiltrated the Hidden Leaf Village to steal the chakra fruit that Kaguya was harvesting. However, he couldn’t find any fruit, so he changed his plan and captured the Tailed Beasts to extract their chakra.
He took Naruto to another dimension in order to absorb his chakra without interruption. However, Sasuke, along with Boruto and others, arrived to rescue Naruto. In the battle, Momoshiki was defeated after being hit by an attack from Boruto. He left a Karma seal on Boruto’s body, turning him into his vessel. With the Karma seal, Momoshiki can potentially take over Boruto’s body and be resurrected.
These are the interesting details about Boruto Uzumaki compiled by Topreadmanga. With the inherited power from his parents and his own exceptional abilities, Boruto is considered to have the potential to succeed his father and become the number one shinobi in the world. Although he was initially disliked by the Naruto fan community, Boruto’s personality, abilities, and uniqueness in his adventure journey have made fans change their minds. This is an exciting series that Naruto fans should not miss. Follow the complete series of Boruto on Topreadmanga, starting from April 16, 2022!
