    i have always wondered what nature element bolt was born with coz this was never explained, in the movie he subconciously added wind to the rasengan so many people assumed wind was his affinity but in the anime he is stated to have a strong lightning nature so could this be his affinity or both wind + lightning are his affinities?

    In terms of continuation, they still left his Vansihing Rasengan blank from a specific nature release still. Outside of the Novel that is.

    Makes me wonder if that is the reason why. But yeah it appears that Boruto's nature has a strong affinity towards Lightning Release.

    But who knows. He does use it more than anything else Manga wise.

    It’s lighting but maybe because naruto has all of them after getting the power from the sage. He was born with more then one affinity?

    It's wind.

    Honestly, when people were saying "Bolt has an affinity towards lightning" I was a bit confused and was wondering
    where did they get that from. I rewatch the episode, and all Sasuke said at the end of the day is Bolt has strong lightning and whatnot.

    Either way, the fact that he added the Wind-style to Rasengan without even realizing implies that his Wind is the dominant one imo.

    I think its Raiton. I was guessing this earlier when Bolt's eye released a lightning stream but I think Sasuke confirmed it. I think Boruto will be capable of more than three honestly. Naruto has basically every form of chakra within him.

    Boruto uses a lot of Raiton, and it seems to be his preferred offensive element, but given what we've seen so far, his 'natural' affinity is probably Fūton. Boruto's Rasengan has a lot of elements that are wind-like in nature, such as the fact that it can be thrown like Naruto's Fūton: Rasenshuriken or the way it vanishes, and it's implied in the movie that he developed that subconsciously. It would make sense, considering the anime's emphasis on Boruto's talent and the fact that the Rasengan was originally designed to eventually have nature transformation applied to it.

    There might also be a case made for Boruto inheriting Naruto's Fūton affinity. A lot of the characters in Naruto, particularly those from clans such as the Uchiha or Sarutobi clans, inherit affinities genetically.

    You mean you "couldnt" prior to Boruto :thumbsup

    They are dropping literally every other jutsu or chakra related restriction for his gen...Why not affinity logic as well :oldshrug

    "affinity" stopped meaning anything a long time ago anyway. :lmao
    look at Hiruzen for example. :catshrug

    And it's hardly apparent that someone's second element is any weaker anyway.

    like if we were to assume that Zabuza's affinity is Water-style, then how did Kakashi match him just fine?

    I guess it's only a fancy word, but it does not account for anything... :catshrug

    This is never even once freaking implied bud

    There have been 0 instances of anyone with 2 affinities

    Your chakra can only be predisposed to a single element

    But like every other rule in the franchise previously established on ninjutsu, i wouldnt be surprised if Boruto pisses on that as well
    Hiruzen LEARNED all 5...He wasnt born PREDISPOSED to all 5

    Massive difference
    Never said it did :oldshrug

    Never even implied i believed that :oldshrug

    it could also explain why he is so talented with elements, next thing you know it he will be pulling out some fire style jutsu or earth style jutsu he probably learned from his pops

    It appears to be Wind, but I wouldn't mind it being lightning as we'd probably get to see more elemental Rasengans.

    Remember Jiraiya's Flame Rasengan from the games? Yeah, that would've been dope.

    It was never said in the movie nor the manga that Boruto used wind for his rasengan. Only in the novel, but Kodachi might have decided to correct it which it why he left it out of the manga. It was made vague on purpose I think.

    Moreover...
    Nothing new with english subs having bad translations. :hisoka
    "Your chakra has a strong lighting nature"
    :blinditachi
    It's made very clear.
    (The official french translation translated it as "Lightning is the major element of your chakra" btw...)
    Maybe it's time for people to stop relying on those half-assed translations for their arguments.

    @saboltgene yes, Boruto's affinity is most likely lighting.
    @Seelentau I doubt the anime or manga will bother to show him (or anyone) do the paper test unfortunatly but I think Sasuke's reliable...

    It does not matter to me either way tbh. I don't think those stuff are taken into consideration in a battle. lol

    Just don't use obviously bad translations in the future. :lbj
    Your ears should be enough to tell it's wrong. No need to speak Japanese. That's how bad it is.

    I hope they retcon it and turn it into a Jougan space time ability

    which would make sense as to why a rinnegan or byakugan can't see it

    maybe they can retcon it that is subconsciously did it without being actively visible

    like its effect on chakra

    we saw it flicker to help Boruto with that chakra sword the Hiramekarei

    Could be either from what i've seen in the thread, but he'll probably gain multiple considering he has a new dojutsu.

    Having an affinity and being able to use a certain nature isn't the same thing. You don't have more than on affinity, but you can learn other nature transformations.

    I could have sworn when Kakashi and Yamato was teaching Naruto about affinities they mentioned how Sasuke had fire and lightning, and that yamato had earth and water.
