Who is stronger, Naruto or Boruto? In the animated series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, the exuberant main protagonist is around 12 years old and a newly graduated genin from Konoha village. 🔥 He is also approximately the same age as Naruto in the first part of his own story, during the long time jump that preceded Naruto Shippūden. The respective stories of Naruto and Boruto begin around the same time in their lives and relate to similar key events, such as examining Chûnin, learning new key techniques 📜 and as well as summoning beasts for the first time.
Comparison between Boruto and Naruto:
Despite the similarities in their stories, Naruto and Boruto received a very different education 👨🎓 and are very different fighters! However, the fanbase is debating which of the two is stronger. Boruto, is he more powerful than Naruto was at the same age? 🥊 As the exact Naruto and Boruto timelines are not explicitly dated, we will be relying exclusively on the power of Naruto in Part 1 of the anime.
Origin of the strength of Naruto and Boruto?
The strength of a ninja can be judged on 4 main factors within the Naruto franchise: taijutsu (hand-to-hand combat), ninjutsu (chakra-based techniques), genjutsu (different forms of illusions ), and tactical intelligence. 🧠 In these last two categories, Naruto and Boruto are more or less the same - neither use genjutsu and both are reckless, impulsive, and emotional protagonists in the Shonen mold, regularly breaking mission protocol.
Naruto has always been a strong user of taijutsu and these skills improved over time with Kakashi, but also thanks to his rivalry with Sasuke Uchiwa in Team 7. While Boruto enjoyed a much better workout! 🤼♂️ In contrast, Naruto did not receive personal tutoring during his academic years, since he had no family or friends to help. While Boruto began training at a young age, receiving instruction from both his father, Konahamaru and eventually from Sasuke. Additionally, Boruto's maternal heritage means that he was trained by some of Konoha's best taijutsu users - the Hyūga clan. Although not as proficient as Metal Lee, Boruto was fortunate enough to receive instruction from the two best ninjas in Konoha Village! Therefore, we think Boruto is a better taijutsu user than Naruto was in his childhood!
Who is better at Ninjutsu, Naruto or Boruto?
In terms of ninjutsu, the fight between Naruto and Boruto is much closer. Naruto's natural 🌊 chakra abundance allows him to craft hundreds of clones using MultiCloning, while Boruto can only handle a handful at a time. However, Boruto was able to develop his own version of the Rasengan much more easily than Naruto and at a somewhat earlier stage of his development (before the Chūnin Exams, as opposed to after). Additionally, Naruto never really developed an arsenal of techniques like most ninjas do, while Boruto has many ninjutsu up his sleeve., including attacks using lightning ⚡, wind 🌪️, and water. 💧 It should also be noted that the tricks that Naruto had to work hard for, like manipulating the chakra to climb trees, was a cinch for Boruto, who performs them effortlessly. Our conclusion about this is that: Young Naruto might be able to invade Boruto with the Multicloning technique in a fight, but his son undoubtedly has a wider range of ninjutsu than his father at the same age!
The Hidden Power of Boruto and Naruto:
Some fans might argue that the presence of the Nine-Tailed Fox in Naruto's body would give him the edge over Boruto. However, during the first part, Naruto was unable to control the demon, Kurama, 🦊 which lay dormant within him and was often manipulated by Kurama himself when using it. We are a long way from the Naruto of the Shippuden era, who harnessed the power of the beast and was able to use its power. If the power of Naruto's Nine Tails is considered here, then Boruto's own uncontrollable abilities must also be included, including the mysterious power of the Jougan., 🧿 with his right eye, and the seal of the kama who can both absorb Jutsu and amplify them! It is unfortunately difficult to decide on the big winner of this battle. The extent of Boruto's hidden power is still a mystery to us!
Conclusion: Boruto stronger than Naruto?
The biggest difference between Naruto and Boruto is that during the first part of Naruto's life, Naruto was seen as a nigga in the ninja academy, while Boruto has been referred to as a genius since he was a child. 🥇 The entire first part of Naruto is centered around a protagonist who continuously desires to surpass himself to become one of the best ninjas of all time. And that goal provided Naruto with his greatest strength: his determination. 💪Much more spoiled than his father, Boruto does not possess the same determination as his father and that is why it is possible in our opinion that Naruto triumphs at the same age over his son, although Boruto is a more talented shinobi at the same age! In terms of pure capacity, Boruto seems to be a superior genin from afar!
