    Think about it.
    :naruramen


    Kaguya - Came out of nowhere and had brain damage

    Hagaromo - Was foreshadowed, but inherited Kaguya's brain damage

    Hamura - Came out of nowhere

    Toneri - Wanted to force Hinata into a marriage, nuff said.

    Momoshiki - Died soon after being introduced

    Kinshiki - Died soon after being introduced, and was mostly in Momoshiki's shadow.

    Urashiki - Boruto Movie reject. Literally.


    Now assuming Jigen is an actual Ootsutsuki, and absorbing the Juubi's chakra didn't simply make him appear like one; we may have the first non shitty Ootsutsuki.
    :kishi


    As far as design goes, imo the studs are a turn off.:dontpepe


    But other then that the past Boruto chapter made him feel menacing.
    :blessed

    All we need now is decent backstory, and motivation.
    :tchpepe

    INB4 HUHUH MUH CHAKRA MUH POWERAAAAH:dumbpepe


    Like what connection does an Otsutsuki even have with the shinobi world that he would have good motivations ? The entire clan is basically chakra fruit and power hinting monsters which is the most basic thing in a villain possible



    He has the potential, sure because nothings been done yet


    But so far there's nothing to indicate he's gonna be that well written. Besides he just seems like a part 1 oro knockoff with his power quest and vessel shit till now....


    The only reason behind people's hype is that he's supposed to be super strong and stronger than naruto and sasuke and is playing around with OP stuff. But so was kaguya and the rest of them and power doesn't indicate good writing.


    I mean people can hate all they want but itachi as a villain or anti hero or whatever had SO much depth in his actions and character that they're debated till date:oldshrug
    Naruto also dealt with themes such as hate and war and genocide and race and stuff via pain ( that cycle of hatred dialogue is iconic) which Boruto just doesn't seem to do

    I doubt any of the new villains are coming even close to that morals and themes and shit

    Likely scored some O clan girls too.

    Theory time: Kaguya did go insane because Lord Jigen chose not to grace her with his D for over a month. Black Zetsu was Kaguya's supressed sexual frustrations given form. Kaguya created all those BZ to find the man who changed her whole world...but to whom sexin' Kaguya was just Tuesday. :smoke

    It's really not that hard especially for a character like jigen, no need for some complex explanation he could have been in another dimension or sealed this whole time. If the writer had to fit every villan he created into previous plots as a way to explain where they were all these years, it'll never work and only lead to a bigger mess because those stories weren't created with them in mind.
    That is how you end up with stuff like character A secretly controlled by B who secretly was controlled by C and so on...

    There has to be a big ass backstory about him. What he did before Earth, how he got there and formed Kara. Hard to guess, what his motivation would be, besides the generic Otsutsuki one.

    I guess they already wholly fucked up with Hamura and Hagoromo doing nothing about the threat of other Otsutsuki that Kaguya was terrified about (just another instance of Kishi switching the narrative mid story)

    so, nothing stopping them from retconning a bunch of other characters motivations to shoehorn Jigen into the plot

    Let's not forget there was an entire space Hyuugas clan just chilling on the moon for thousands of years.

    Were they regularly kidnapping "importing" Earthlings for breeding or just inbreeding amongst themselves? Oh...

    Reducing Kaguya down to romance fodder.... :scust

    Jigen does seem like the best and his otsutsuki design give me some good badass vibe makes me think of thanos. Hope he has a goal like thanos that actually make him charismatic like creating a new empire/humanity anything smarter than MUH ME WANT CHAKARA!
    Also thanks for explaining why almost all otsutsuki as of now were shitty. Momoshiki kinshiki had the excuse of being movie villains. Kaguya had the excuse of being a last minute shit
    But the worst are Hagoromo ( a dude planned for a long time and who was way more charismatic as a shadow lol) and toneri. Those two were planned but for some reasons were shit. Momoshiki's goal was as simple as kaguya's but God damnit I prefer it than toneri's whose complex goal makes him even more of a retarded idiot.
    I cannot stand that faggot , also Hamura is just Hagoromo without rinnegan , I hate this fag too. It's a family of retards. I hope part of jigen's plan is to make them extinct because they are degenerate! It would make him my actual favourite villain :fatcat

    You lost all credibility when you started praising itachi. A shitty written dumb faggot whose objective and action are retarded and overly complicated but in the end makes little to no sense ( who is also a Gary sue) is not better than a stupid chakra fruit vore.

    He's not an Otsutsuki and he popped out of thin air, so no. He, Kawaki, airship, just randomly decided to pop into existence for Burp's era. Forgive me for not buying trash writing produces a decent character.

    Seems that there was a method to the madness of making Kara and Otsut. more than we originally thought. I think he will have a good story.

    Jigen is not the only Ootsutski ( Assuming he is) to have potential when both Momoshiki and Urashiki are still remain active in the story.

    Each of them have something they want to achieve and whatever their intention are remained mysterious and between Jigen and Momoshiki, they are clearly not fond of each other so it would probably be a battle between two villains having complex backstory.

    Momoshiki is becoming a vital part of the story and is likely going to have the most negative impact on boruto life.

    Urashiki Seems to broke the clan law since he obtained the rinnegan and was hiding his superior, Momoshiki since it entails that only Main Family have the right to access more powers while the lower branch (Urashiki and Kinshiki) must simply obey and give up their life for them.

    So Urashiki is definitely cooking up to something

    He has the potential to be the first Otsutsuki that's an actual character period. The others just came outta nowhere, served as a plot device with almost no characterization of their own (though Toneri did get some in the movie I guess) and just felt like non entities.
    You're saying this because it wasn't an Otsutsuki that chopped off Minato's arms and you know it.:wow

    maybe he shouldn't have get one :caticon
    The character of a faggot who is mad because hinata wont make him a scarf is 10 time worse than any otsutsuki. This guys was a pathetic villain and one of the most faggoty person in this series.
    Everything about him screams loser and stupid idiot. Maybe he should just have been an emotionless and thoughtless puppet

    He's definitely got potential.

    And I personally liked toneri when he was a villain. Urashiki and transformed momo were very enjoyable as well.
