WHY IS NARUTO SO MUCH WEAKER IN BORUTO?

Naruto had acquired amazing power throughout Masashi Kishimoto’s anime and manga series, so why is he so much weaker in ‘Boruto’? When the Naruto story began, the eager ninja was firmly planted at the bottom of his class, capable of changing into a naked woman but unable to conjure the single clone required to graduate from Konoha’s training school. As the storey progressed, the eager ninja’s position improved. Naruto Uzumaki was able to overcome his weaknesses in the end. Naruto achieved his status as the world’s finest ninja by a mixture of dedication and determination. In the last episode, Naruto came close to defeating his long-time enemy Sasuke, proving his strength and fulfilling his goal.

Naruto’s relative underperformance in the Boruto sequel series may be attributed to two significant in-story factors. The first is that Naruto had simply become rusty, as Kurama made it quite evident to Naruto. Naruto spent his youth practising, engaging in missions, and subsisting on ramen and other fast food. He was motivated by the high desire of becoming Hokage, and he had no choice but to put in the necessary effort to achieve his goal. With the onset of adulthood, Naruto has a slew of new responsibilities to fulfil. A Hokage’s administrative responsibilities take up the bulk of his time, and Boruto has already expressed his displeasure with Naruto’s treatment of his family. Naruto’s job as Hokage is to protect the village, which requires much more than simply learning new techniques and becoming more skilled. Second, the ninja world is now experiencing a time of peace, which has resulted in the villages as a whole being weaker. In Boruto, one of the most recurring themes is how, when there isn’t a war to fight, the younger generation isn’t as skilled as the old guard, and Naruto hasn’t had a good battle in years by the time Shin is on the scene.

There are, however, two plausible possibilities for Naruto’s demise in the actual world. Notably, Naruto is no longer the protagonist of his own storey; instead, it is Boruto who is the hero. As the Seventh Hokage, Naruto serves as a supporting character, and it is not the sequel’s obligation to improve the character of “Boruto’s father.” As Boruto’s storey takes centre stage, Naruto’s responsibility is to be arrested, engage in close battle, and provide opportunities for Boruto’s storey to be told rather than his own. On a more practical level, both Naruto and Sasuke were uncomfortably strong by the time the series came to a close, as well. Gaining these magnificent abilities resulted in an exciting battle against Kaguya, but it does not augur well for the rest of the quest. To turn his son into Konoha’s next great hero, Naruto’s might had to be moderated; otherwise, there would be no point in continuing his father’s efforts.

However, even if Naruto Uzumaki’s power has waned as an adult, this is just in contrast to the stratospheric degree of his own might. Despite his age, Naruto is still an unbeatable ninja, and his main problem as an adult seems to be ring rust. Naruto may yet be able to recover his former grandeur if he has less papers on his desk and more enemies knocking on his door in the future.
