    Just goes to show how small Ikemoto's scale is when he draws fights.

    The biggest explosion in Boruto is inferior to shit Part 1 characters were capable of.

    That's rich considering Ultra Big Ball Rasengan was stated to be able to CARVE mountains. So you're KN1 Kid Naruto was replicating that?

    Boruto is now strong enough to tank chidori from an otsutski which puts his durability feats above vote naruro

    Didn't Kid Naruto's Rasengan do the same against Kabuto?

    Base kid Naruto had strength, Stamina, and durability.

    He held a Giant snakes mouth open to prevent it from swallowing him, fought Kabuto after tanking a tail whip from that giant snake and getting his femur cracked

    Not true the clones evened up the gap between him and those with greater Taijutsu skill. Fun fact, The real Naruto wasn't touched at all by Sasuke on the rooftop or by Kimmimaro

    To be honest. All the no tailed Naruto would've had to do to beat 3 tomoe Sasuke was use clones but...

    Some really shitty arguments from all sides in this thread. Also, lol at the people who say that Boruto is a shitty overpowered Gary Stu that go into these threads and also say that every relevant Part I Genin would trash him. :catblink

    Anyway, Boruto didn’t beat Ao on his own, nor is cyborg Ao stronger than pre-cyborg Ao (his stats in the volume extras are a lot lower, and even though the stats are usually bullshit, they imply that he got weaker overall). Boruto also didn’t do better than Konohamaru in that fight, Konohamaru was only knocked out because he took a hit for Boruto, who failed to notice an attack coming his way. Then, Boruto only won because he had Katasuke’s chakra absorbing glove and the chakra sword and the others didn’t. He would’ve gotten stomped otherwise. So this “Boruto easily beats Jonin like Ao, he’s also way stronger than Konohamaru” stuff is bullshit. I don’t know what you’re smoking if you think he’d solo Zabuza, maybe if he learns how to use V2 Karma against Boro or something. :lmao

    Tbh, it’s very hard to say how Boruto compares to Part I characters. The overall sense of Boruto’s (and the others) progress in the manga sucks compared to Naruto, and the kids are from completely different time periods with no common benchmarks between them, so to say.

    Naruto would outlast him.

    Until Boruto displays to run through clones without a problem, the Naruto who beat Mizuki would rush him down.

    Barely scrapes Jounin level since he doesn't have the skills. Heck, he's still struggling with his shurkenjutsu, as far as his training w/ Sasuke and Sarada caught up to the mechanics sooner.

    Against beasts like VOTE1 Naruto and Sasuke who are Tokubetsu Jounin level on a good day, he gets spanked. Even CE Neji, Gaara Lee could get a turn here in the spanking fest, Gaara is definitely stronger. Tbh, he could beat 3T Sasuke w/ his vanishing Rasengan hax, but I'm not sure against Naruto who'll rush him down and knock the living daylights out of him even before he can say "dad".

    He should be High Chuunin by all rights but that's where he should cap out but insofar as his latest performances, he's about ground level Jounin strong. Capable of defeating your weakest Jounin but not enough to defeat lukewarm Jounin like Asuma's daughter

    Neji is better in CQC with more intense training in Jyuuken, so Boruto gets clobbered.

    Gaara's got layers of impenetrable defense so even if he trolls w/ vanishing Rasengan, he can't hit Gaara's body and even if by some chances, it bypasses, he hits the armor which does nothing while Gaara can troll w/ Sand tsunami's and Sand Coffin him

    Neji eats a Vanishing Rasengan and Karma being a separate power means shutting him down with Jyuken is out

    Boruto just uses Purple Lightning and punches through Gaara’d defense just like Sasuke

    He's using Karma? I kind of forgot about it, tbh. Karma Boruto defeats even Kyuubi Mode Naruto, so Neji will be a walk in the park, especially since Kurma will bolster his physicals.

    I guess Boruto w/ Karma scales higher

    What does CE neji do against Boruto's rasengan varients or thunder clap arrow?

    From the list you mentioned the only that can get a win against current boruto is gaara assuming his sand can't be absorbed
    He doesn't need karma to beat CE neji, now if it's SRA neji yea

    What does Boruto do against Neji's Jyuuken or Rotation if he gets in close? You evaluate as though it's a Pokemon game and they each get a turn to try out their best move.

    Obviously they'll start off in CQC since Boruto is no long range fighter and obviously he gets destroyed by Neji in CQC as he's canonically tried Jyuuken in every fight he's been in where he could close in the gap and go for a palm strike. Thus it never goes beyond that and gets his TenKetsu blocked especially since his Jougan only activates in special cases

    Boruto's rasengan will do nothing against Neji's rotation.

    Neji has Lee weightless speed and will easily disable Boruto with gentle fist.

    No, he's but he's a mid-range fighter and why would boruto engage a hyuga is straight CQC? You know he trains with them right??:drake

    Boruto starts off with clones to CQC while he preps any one of his ranged techs... When neji does get close he'll have a hard time hitting boruto to begin with as boruto has kept up and dodged multiple jounin LVL opponents on panel...

    Because that's what he basically did against Shikadai with full knowledge of his shadow possession jutsu and/or estimate of range improvement. He got stomped, btw.

    Now why would he suddenly lose confidence against a Hyuuga if he's trained with them and knows Jyuuken? That's like claiming Sasuke would back down from a Sharingan challenge or another Hyuuga would go for another fighting method because they know they're getting murked. Thankfully Hinata is there to debunk what you're saying.


    OOC. Show me a scan where Boruto's opted for long ranged off the bat. Who are these Jounin level opponents? I'll take your word for it and assume you're right. But he's never fought a Hyuuga, a genius even.

    Neji's brutalised Lee a much physically stronger fighter and faster w/ clean sheets on that. And Lee's went toe to toe w/ Kimimaro who'd clobber Boruto and lived to tell the tale.

    Tenketsu get blocked as soon as he gets within range as he eventually does or what is he doing all the time, standing in the far distance and throwing long-range attacks that are never hitting Neji and then concluding vanishing Rasengan is his only hope thanks to knowing he's no match for Neji he's never gauged in CQC?

    And in every instance like I said he's tested the waters with Taijutsu

    During the chunin exams? He had no idea about shikadi's special shadow possession he learnt from Shikamaru just for that fight
    Wtf? He Hardly ever fights using jyuuken because it's ineffective without the byakugan, only time he used it outside CE was during the spar vs sarada. He's trained with them so he knows how they fight and what to avoid.

    Shojuji and Ao

    Lee without gates in not much stronger than neji.... And boruto went toe to toe with Ao who'd beat neji six times till Sunday:catshrug

    Your right boruto usually opens with CQC and rasengan/TCA. Neji dies to a rasengan the moment he gets within range or gets electrocuted buy surging sea + thunder clap arrow.

    Shikadai literally has "Nara" in his name lol. What are you on?

    In a 1V1 I'd bet he always does. He did against Sarada in their sparring match, did against Mitsuki, did against Shikadai, did against Shizuma... Like literally most of his 1v1 fights I can recall. So just because odds are against him which he doesn't know, he'll back out of CQC and keep Neji out of arm's length? Sure, that makes sense

    No seriously the tech Shikadai used was new and held secret in reserve as a specific counter to Boruto and his KBs

    They literally telling you shikadi learnt that jutsu specifically for boruto, it's not a regular shadow possession. Boruto was evading his shadows with clones just fine before that and only engaged in cqc when he thought he had a clear opening.
    He may have tried using more it as an academy student but he hardly used it now even in 1v1. Against AO, shojuji, kawaki and Naruto he doesn't use it.

    You're talking about the Shadow Possession Jutsu or the tech? Yeah, the tech was new but not the Shadow Possession Jutsu. My bad if I caused any misconceptions...:catshrug
