Confirmed Mechanics of Boruto’s Flying Raijin Jutsu Prove He’s More Than Just a Ninja with Inherited Talent

Boruto’s development since the timeskip has been a highly discussed topic within the community in recent months. This is largely attributed to his innate abilities inherited from his parents, Naruto, the reincarnation of Ashura, and Hinata, a member of the Hyuga clan.

Nonetheless, it has been recently uncovered that his skill in performing the Flying Raijin Jutsu, made famous by his grandfather Minato, is a product of his ability and intelligence rather than innate talent.

According to the Boruto databooks, Boruto utilizes various objects and the assistance of frogs in order to perform the Flying Raijin Jutsu, which sets him apart from Minato, who relied solely on a kunai and his own skill in mastering the technique. This highlights the contrasting abilities of the two characters.

Despite having inherited talent, Boruto’s unique application of the Flying Raijin Jutsu showcases his ability to carve out his own path as a ninja.

Please note: This article may reveal key plot points from the series.

Boruto’s mastery of the Flying Raijin Jutsu showcases his versatility as a ninja

The contrast between the protagonist and his grandfather, Minato Namikaze, in their use of the Flying Raijin Jutsu serves as a clear illustration of the protagonist’s growth and development as a ninja throughout the series. Unlike Minato, who only utilized marked kunais to execute the Jutsu, the protagonist is still in the process of honing his skills and mastering the ability that was originally created by the Second Hokage, Tobirama Senju.

His grandson, on the other hand, uses a variety of items – including shurikens, his sword, and other accessories – to transport himself to various locations. This is supported by the manga’s recent databooks, and the series has also depicted his reliance on frogs to constantly adjust the marks and make his movements much smoother.

Boruto’s version of the Flying Raijin is a different variant and not flawlessly executed, which perfectly exemplifies how he has had to learn things on the go. This is understandable, as he was seen as a criminal in the Hidden Leaf Village and had to flee with Sasuke for three years.

The latest installments of Two Blue Vortex have focused heavily on the reveal that Himawari Uzumaki has become the new host of Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Fox. The story also delves into Himawari’s struggles with Jura, a Shinju clone determined to capture her. In chapter 10, a particularly stunning moment occurs as Himawari unleashes her Jinchuriki abilities alongside the Nine-Tails.

In the upcoming chapters, it is highly probable that Himawari will be the focus, as well as the ongoing conflict between Sarada Uchiha and Hidari, the Shinju clone possessing her father’s chakra. While Boruto did not have a major role in most of the chapters, this may change in the upcoming ones.

Concluding Remarks

Undoubtedly, Boruto has made significant progress in terms of his physical prowess and proficiency in various abilities and Jutsus. His ability to adapt and improve upon his own version of the Flying Raijin further showcases his intelligence as a ninja.
