The fourth great ninja war was full of reanimated ninja. These reanimated ninjas has unlimited strength and chakra. Furthermore, the only way to stop them was by sealing them or by stopping the caster. I personally think that the trend of reanimated shinobi will continue in Boruto. So, today I have made a list of seven characters that may be reanimated in Boruto.
07. Hashirama Senju
We begin the list with Hashirama Senju. He was the first ever Hokage of the Hidden Leaf. He was also known as the “God of Shinobi”. Hashirama’s cells made him one of the most sought after shinobi. In the most recent episode of Boruto, Hashirama’s cells were mentioned once again. There are still people in Boruto who want to get Hashirama’s DNA. So, I think it is a hint at Hashirama being reanimated sometime later in Boruto.
06. Sakumo Hatake
Sakumo was the father of Kakashi Hatake. He was considered to be on the same level as the Legendary Sannin. Sakumo was also known as the “White Fang of the Leaf”. For someone so powerful, Sakumo was never shown at all in the series. All the members of the legendary Sannin are Kage level easily. It was a big disappointment that his power was never revealed.
05. Neji Hyūga
His death was one of the most pointless deaths in the series. Why did he have five in front the attack while he easily reflected it. The Boruto series will unravel more and more secrets of the Byakugan. Also, Neji was arguably the best user of the Byakugan. As things stand, there is a good chance of Neji being reanimated.
04. Itachi Uchiha
Next on the list is the Uchiha prodigy, Itachi. Itachi was reanimated in the fourth great ninja war as he was killed during his fight against Sasuke. It was because of Itachi’s efforts that Kabuto undid the reanimation jutsu. Shin Uchiha was heavily influenced by Itachi and the Uchiha clan. He was also trying to start the Akatsuki once again. It is possible that Itachi might be reanimated once again.
Jiraiya was one of the members of the legendary Sannin. He was killed in Amegakure by the six paths of Pein. Jiraiya was also one of the strongest shinobi in the history. He also possessed the imperfect toad sage mode, which granted him amazing amount of power. Kabuto wanted to reanimate Jiraiya, but he was stopped by Obito Uchiha as he thought that Kabuto was pushing his luck.
02. Obito Uchiha
Obito Uchiha was more or less a hero towards the end of Naruto Shippuden. He wanted to achieve peace through the infinite Tsukuyomi. However, this impossible as the Gokage refused to meet Obito’s absurd demands.
Thus, leading to the start of the great ninja war.
Obito was in possession of six paths chakra before his death. If he was to be reanimated, his power would unmatched. Obito would also have both of his Mangekyō Sharingan, which will make him untouchable.
01. Shisui Uchiha
So, the final character on the list is another Uchiha. Shisui was the best friend of Itachi Uchiha. Shisui was considered the strongest Uchiha of his generation by Danzo Shimura. This led to Danzo taking Shisui’s eye.
Shisui then handed over his remaining eye to Itachi.
He also possessed one of the strongest known genjutsu in the series. Shisui’s powers were never properly shown in Naruto. During the time of the fourth great ninja war, he could’ve been reanimated but Obito didn’t allow Kabuto to reanimate Jiraiya and also Shisui Uchiha.
That’s it from me. I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave your suggestions below.
