Daemon’s Ultimate Power and Its Fatal Flaw: A Preview of Boruto’s Next Fight

Despite the Boruto series introducing a number of “overpowered”characters, including Isshiki, Code, Eida, and Daemon, Daemon remains one of the most enigmatic. His unique ability, which enables him to deflect any intent or attack directed towards him, solidifies his position as a truly formidable character.

Despite the current depiction of Daemon as one of the strongest characters in the Naruto and Boruto series, fans have noticed certain trends that suggest he may soon face a formidable opponent who will expose a significant weakness in his technique. This could potentially level the playing field between Daemon and other powerful characters such as Boruto and Kawaki.

Please note that this article may contain spoilers for the Boruto series.

Boruto’s Similarity to Gojo’s Infinity Technique

Daemon’s main and most noteworthy skill is his natural ability to deflect an enemy’s attack. This power is always active, without Daemon needing to consciously activate it, as long as he is making physical contact with someone. The reflection is activated by the opponent’s intentions, so the stronger their intentions are, the stronger the reflection will be.

It is indisputable that Daemon stands out as one of the most formidable characters in the current series. While his dominance over other characters is widely acknowledged, the full extent and workings of his abilities and techniques remain unexplored. Nevertheless, it is highly probable that his method of deflecting deadly intentions and attacks bears resemblance to Satoru Gojo’s Infinity from Jujutsu Kaisen.

Eida’s ability to prevent harm and allow only non-lethal attacks to reach her is reminiscent of Daemon’s reflection technique. This mechanism operates through specific rules, similar to how Gojo’s Infinity filters out threats or substances deemed harmful. Eida’s power supports the theory that Daemon’s reflection technique functions as an automatic filter for attacks and hostile intentions.

For example, while Code’s claw marks and Shikamaru’s shadow paralysis were able to affect Eida, they had no effect on Daemon, even though they were not intended to harm him. This indicates that Daemon’s reflection does not solely operate on the basis of causing harm.

Despite appearing to be overpowered, Daemon has actually been subdued in the past by someone of much weaker strength. Prior to being introduced in the story, Goro, who possesses the ability to paralyze his host with bacteria, was able to subdue Daemon. It is highly likely that this technique was also used to subdue Daemon.

Some speculation suggests that Daemon’s reflection technique is connected to his eyes. It is believed that his unique eyes may possess a dojutsu ability, which would explain how he is able to counter any attack. This would also align with his enhanced physical abilities as a cyborg.

Furthermore, these theories propose that he could be susceptible to harm from bacteria or poison, since they lack any intention. If his skill is truly linked to his perception, countering him may require surpassing his speed or becoming undetectable to him.

One possible factor for Boruto’s decision to learn the Flying Raijin technique could be to outsmart Daemon’s perception. Yet, even with Daemon’s exceptional intelligence and comprehension, he may still prove challenging to counter effectively.

Concluding thoughts

Although the exact mechanics of Daemon’s abilities are still a mystery, it is clear that his immense strength and the rules governing his reflection technique firmly establish him as one of the most formidable characters in Boruto. The ongoing mystery surrounding his abilities only adds to his compelling and dominant presence in the series.
