Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, as the name suggests is a sequel to the famous anime Naruto. Boruto is well known right now for its intense battle sequence and interesting storyline. It is now at the top of the must-watch list of any anime fans who like action and thrillers. The plot is continuing the story of the famed shinobis of the lands.
Whenever we think of an anime, the first thought that comes to our mind would be, who is the strongest? Just like how the fandom has left Naruto and its characters out, we too will only look at Boruto characters. This is because we already know who the strongest would be if we take Naruto characters into consideration as well. On top of that, this anime follows a different storyline, so it is just fair to look at the characters in this generation. We will be looking at the top five strongest characters in the Boruto anime.
Top 5 Powerful Characters in Boruto Anime
The list is from the people who have already shown their powers because if we include the Kara members, who have potential, we will just have to assume. The characters that we will look at today are all shinobis who have been trained in the shinobi way.
Kawaki is the most interesting and varied character that we see in the anime now. If we talk about the personality of Kawaki, we all know from watching the anime that he is not someone who gets along quickly. By spending time with him, Boruto and many other show that he is not that bad, he just needs time to adjust. Kawaki has gone through the pain of being an experimental subject. Because of this, he has gained the power of Karma. He is one of the people in the anime who has a fair level of control over this power. The power that we have seen in Kawaki till now is just the beginning and he is full of mystery. Hence, he is the strongest character out there in the Boruto universe.
Everyone is familiar with Orochimaru, the unkillable shinobi. So, it is no surprise that we can expect great strength from the ‘child’ of Orochimaru. Mitsuki has shown since the beginning of the anime that he is strong, he has never once hesitated to use his power. On top of that, because of how he was created, he has good chakra control and he uses the sage mode that his parent Orochimaru has taught him. This puts him at an equal with Boruto, maybe even weaker. But because he has fast reflexes and situation grasping skills, he does better in battle than Boruto.
We all know that Boruto is the son of Naruto and Sakura. Also, he has gained powers from both his parents. He has a good amount of chakra and he has also awakened the Jougan. With that, it would have been enough for him to be one of the strongest in the world. But apart from that he has also awakened the Jougan and has the Karma, which was forced upon him. Adding all this up, he is certainly fit to be in the top 3 strongest shinobis in the Boruto world. Boruto also uses the sage mode, which means, with practice, he can actually become the strongest, all he needs is a little training.
The son of Gaara
Kagura is a descendant of the Mizukage and hence, has a strong bloodline. On top of that, he is one of the strongest swordsmen of his generation and is a part of the 7 Swordsmen of the Mist. His chakra control and sense for the battle are what puts him above Sarada who has the Sharingan and super strength. Kagura has fought and trained so hard that his swordsmanship and chakra control are both at very high levels.
