    Japanese Folklore and The Otsutsukis of boruto and naruto.

    All Otsutsuki in the Boruto and Naruto series is based off elements of Japanese Folklore and mythology.

    Kinshiki
    Momoshiki
    Urashiki
    Isshki
    Kaguya

    All Otsutsuki based off Japanese Folklore and mythology. There characters there abilities and powers and personality all subplot Ed off Japanese Folklore and mythology.

    Isshiki is obviously based on Issun-Boshi 一寸法師 from one of Japan's folkloric fairy tales, as was the case with Momoshiki (Momotaro), Kinshiki (Kintaro), Urashiki (Urashima Taro) and Kaguya (Princess Kaguya from The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter).

    Momoshiki is based off Momotarō who also met and befriended a talking dog, monkey and pheasant, who agreed to help him in his quest in exchange for a portion of his rations ( or "millet dumplings"). We can see this part manifesting in Momoshiki's ability to summon Monkey Rock & Pheasant Hunter.

    Urashiki is based off Urashima Taro who was a fisherman. This manifests in Urashiki's signature skill to create a flexible fishing rod which he can use to manifest an extendable thread and fishing hook so as to steal portions of his enemies' chakra and use their abilities. Further, he was shown to have a magical box called The Palace of the Dragon King which has time-based attributes. This was taken outright from Urashima's tale where he received a mysterious box called tamatebako with time-based effects from the princesses.

    The New Otsutsuki in the Boruto manga Isshki Otsutsuki is based off a character named Issuni Bochi.

    In Japanese mythology, Issun Boshi is a child given to a childless couple by the Sumiyoshi sanjin. Issun Boshi is only an inch-high when born, but later in life still embarks to find employment in the real world. He is hired in the capital and becomes the companion of the daughter of one of the officials. On a journey she is attacked by an oni and Issun Boshi saves her by poking at the oni's stomach after he eats Issun Boshi. The oni runs off and drops a magical mallet known as the uchide no kozuchi, which Issun Boshi uses to make himself normal sized.

    Isshki Otsutsuki ability to Strink and expand objects and himself comes directly form Issuni Bochi Japanese Folklore he is based off of not only that but The Same Staff of Issuni Bochi is the same Staff isshki Otsutsuki uses and the same staff kawaki uses in the time skip vs boruto

    Not only that but the The symbol of the wish Granting Hammer called Uchide no Kozuchi in Japanese used by issuni Bochi, is the same symbol we see at the back of Isshki Otsutsuki Royal Otsutsuki clothing.

    Isshki Otsutsuki also has the wish Granting ability of Issuni Bochi this wish Granting ability is summerised in issuni folklore and we have already seen isshki Otsutsuki use this wish casting ability in chapter 24 of the boruto manga, when he recreated and wished for a Physical things including a table, cups, a candle and fork and food. This was only a hint but the story is shaping up to the point of that when isshki Otsutsuki Regains his original Otsutsuki form he will be able to use his wishing abilities at full power.

    Isshki Otsutsuki wish Granting ability is called
    Uchide no Kozuchi which he used in chapter 24 of the boruto manga with delta at the table.

    So in summary, isshki Otsutsuki character just like all Otsutsukis is based off Japanese Folklore and mythology he has the abilities to Strink himself and things around him at will and the ability to Grant any wish he souls deseries with the wishing mallet of Uchide no kozuchi

    There is at least 1 or 2 other Taro not used. One of them is Chikarataro.

    Some say though Kinshiki incorporated Chikarataro because both are about super strength.


    I wonder how broken the wish would be.

    Although that increases the chances of a more embarassing plot-induced defeat for Isshiki. :doge

    Where? I only heard on one account that the ringing from a temple bell will make anything that was wished for; disappear.

    According to the [ ] (1179), the mallet is a "wonderful treasure," such that when one goes out into a wide open field, it can be used to tap out a mansion, amusing men and women, useful servants, horse and cattle, food, and articles of clothing. However, all the items wished for reputed disappear at the sound of the bell tolling (hence the necessity of using it in a vacant field), and the moral of this sermon-type tale ( ) is that this is no treasure after all.

    In Buddhism bells have many important meanings. They are often used as a call to prayer as they can be heard even at great distances. The ring of the bell can represent the heavenly enlightened voice of the Buddha teaching the dharma and can also be used as a call for protection and as a way to ward off evil spirits.

    One thing I'd like to touch upon is that Isshiki is not necessarily based on only Issun Kotarō.

    We know that Momoshiki for instance was not only based on Momotarō, but also on Ushiwakamaru; same for Kinshiki, who was based on Kintarō and Benkei.

    Kaguya is based on Kaguya-hime from the tale of the bamboo cutter, as well as the moon rabbit, given her horns, which represent rabbit ears.
