Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is an anime based on the next generation of shinobi after the Fourth Great Ninja War. People were excited to see how the children of their favorite ninja community would look and how great the story would continue. But after experiencing it, most of them were unsatisfied with how the strongest shinobi were nerfed down, especially Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha.
While the continuation of the Naruto franchise was somewhat popular, it was the manga that kept the hype of the show intact. The executives had to bring back Masashi Kishimoto to bring back the glory days. People think that the Boruto anime nerfed down the Orange Hokage, but it is not true since there were moments when he showcased his powers to prove that he has gotten stronger over time.
Naruto Uzumaki Peaked In Boruto Anime
At the end of Naruto Shippuden, Naruto Uzumaki unlocked his Six Paths powers and got access to both Yin and Yang Kurama, so he was in his most potent form at that time. But in Boruto anime, several legit theories can make the fans think that our beloved Seventh Hokage has gotten weaker but it is definitely not the case since he became much more powerful than before.
Kurama indeed revealed that Naruto Uzumaki might have become rusty since peace prevailed worldwide, and he did not have to fight any major villains. But from the beginning of Boruto, the fans saw him getting back to action against Momoshiki and Kinshiki, along with Sasuke Uchiha. It was the first time in a long time that the fans got to see him getting serious.
After that, there were several other might when he had to use Kurama’s power. He peaked during his fight against Isshiki Otsutsuki. Even though it was the last ditch method and Kurama had to sacrifice himself, Baryon Mode was indeed the point where Naruto Uzumaki became most potent in the whole franchise.
More On Naruto Uzumaki
Naruto might have gotten rusty over the years, but there was never a doubt about him getting weaker. He worked hard throughout his life to become one of the strongest and most reliable people in the series. He greatly improved his Taijutsu skills and showcased them during his fight against Momoshiki and Isshiki.
One of the reasons why people think that Naruto Uzumaki got weaker is that the anime has portrayed Boruto Uzumaki as having tons of power-ups along with having unlocked several new abilities. At the end of the day, it is an anime named after Boruto, so he was going to be the main focus of the show. But there was never a doubt about Naruto Uzumaki. He and Sasuke Uchiha will always be the strongest shinobi that the fandom will ever know.
