Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a shonen about Naruto’s son, Boruto. It is a sequel to the popular manga and anime, Naruto. Before Boruto started, fans are well aware how powerful Naruto is. He was able to beat tons of villains in the past that seemed to be out of his league.
One possible reason for that is that Naruto has Kurama inside of him. The tail beast has been Naruto’s companion and a source of power for the shinobi. This fact made fans expect that Boruto will never surpass his father. But after chapter 55 of Boruto, it was revealed that Kurama died due to excessive use of chakra in a fight between Naruto and Isshiki Ohtsutsuki.
Now, fans are asking whether Boruto stands a chance to be stronger than Naruto. Will he or will he not?
Is Boruto Stronger Than Naruto?
Fans believe that there is a huge chance that Boruto can be stronger than Naruto. Although it cannot be seen now as the manga and series is still ongoing, fans can give various reasons why they think so.
One would be Naruto has pure chakra from Sage of Six Path and Hinata has chakra from the Sage’s younger brother. Since Naruto and Hinata are Boruto’s parents, it is obvious that Boruto now has both pure chakras.
Another is that Boruto has mastered the nature of transformation despite his young age. He is a natural unlike his father. Fans expect that Boruto can even improve in the future, even faster than what his dad did.
Boruto has a unique dojutsu that allows him to perceive a person’s chakra, including the chakra’s pathways and key points. Naruto did not have that ability and Boruto can use this to his advantage in the future. Boruto also has a Karma seal which gives him more power.
Last reason would be Naruto will naturally teach Boruto all his skills and knowledge and Boruto can improve those. It was the advantage Boruto has that Naruto never had. To add to that, Sasuke is also training Boruto. Having two of the best shinobis training him, it is no doubt that Boruto will be stronger than Naruto.
