Is Boruto Evil Due to Karma Seals?
The latest chapter of Boruto featured some pretty interesting developments that might change the way fans see the series. One of them is the fact that there’s a possibility that Boruto will turn evil due to karma seals.
He has Otsutsuki DNA in him and his obsession with revenge makes him prime villain material. But could he be good again?
A member of the main branch of the Otsutsuki clan, Momoshiki is a pale, androgynous man with a pair of Byakugan and Rinnegan in his hands. He comes to the world of Naruto and Boruto to suck out the chakra from the Ten-Tailed Beasts, like Kaguya did, in order to grow another God Tree.
He’s a dangerous enemy to Konohagakure and the other members of Team Kara as he can resurrect himself by using compressed Otsutsuki data stored in his body or by giving someone else karma to create a vessel for him to reincarnate into. He’s also incredibly strong as he was able to kick away a possessed Boruto without much difficulty. Moreover, when Momoshiki absorbs Kinshiki, he becomes even stronger. Momoshiki can fly and attack using the earth, fire, water, wind, and lightning elements.
Sasuke returned to the village after a long time-skip and became a mentor to Naruto’s son, Boruto. He’s been helping the boy train and teaching him everything he knows. He even let the child keep his old headband, a sign of trust.
He doesn’t disparage Boruto unnecessarily and is always there to protect him. He also has a strong paternal instinct for the kid, which is quite a change from the evil that was Itachi.
Despite being a traitor to Konoha, Sasuke doesn’t hate the Hidden Leaf village, and he wants to return there someday. In the eyes of the ninja community, this is likely considered a crime since the former hero participated in the village’s downfall. However, he is working to right his wrongs.
The recent episode of Boruto where a Momoshiki Otsutsuki-possessed Boruto stabbed Sasuke and destroyed his rinnegan left many fans wondering if the protagonist will follow in his father’s footsteps as a morally upright hero or turn into an antihero. However, this is unlikely to happen for a number of reasons.
Shikamaru has a strong moral compass and is always willing to help others out. He’s also very dedicated to his friends and will go out of his way to help them, even if it means sacrificing himself in the process.
This makes him the ideal partner to have in a team. Shikamaru is also very intelligent and uses his clan’s Shadow Possession Jutsu in clever ways. This allows him to stall the progress of the enemy or protect his teammates from harm.
4. Sasuke’s Jutsu
Sasuke’s sagelike wisdom and quick decision-making make him an expert strategist. He also possesses a high battle IQ and can swiftly assess his opponents’ strategies and means of attack.
Sasuke is a master of the Rinnegan, which allows him to peer into the world of Limbo and dispatch shadowy threats more efficiently. He has a unique ability that allows him to project images of objects and creatures (and their sounds, smells, and temperatures) into the real world.
This technique is called Amenotejikara and costs 10 + 5 chakra points to cast. It creates a black sphere within 1 mile of the caster that rips up parts of the terrain and ties creatures to it, requiring them to succeed on a Strength saving throw or be restrained for 1 hour.
Kawaki is one of the most interesting villains in Boruto. He was raised by the Kara society to be the vessel for Isshiki Otsutsuki and ended up being rescued by Team 7. He is a strange child and while he does look up to Naruto, he seems to want to destroy him.
He has a lot of power and he uses it to try to glue Himawari’s vase back together. He also reveals to Boruto that he has a kama seal which makes him more powerful.
Kawaki has the potential to be a really good villain for Boruto as he can cause a lot of damage and may even kill a few people. This could actually redeem the series from being a subpar prequel, but it is still a bit of a surprise that Kawaki will be the endgame villain.
