A lot of Naruto characters have made it to Boruto. There are some new ones as well, but most of the series includes the characters who were once from Naruto. Many Naruto characters, such as Naruto himself, have not stopped improving ever since the 4th Great Ninja War ended. They’ve continued training and are stronger than ever right now. Today, I’ve made a list of all the Naruto characters who I think have improved a lot in Boruto.
09. Hanabi Hyuuga
Hanabi Hyuuga is the daughter of Hiashi Hyuga. She is also the heiress of the Hyuga Clan, and will be leading them after Hiashi. Hanabi was too young to actually be a part of Naruto. As a result, she was left out, even though everyone said she had unmatched talents. But, now in Boruto, she has grown to be a Jōnin, probably, and is easily a strong Kunoichi. It goes without saying that Hanabi will have improved a lot. She is easily one of Konoha’s best ninjas right now, especially because she has the Byakugan.
08. Mirai Sarutobi
Mirai Sarutobi is the daughter of Kurenai Yuhi and Asuma Sarutobi. She’s a Chūnin from Konohagakure. Mirai was born sometime before or during the 4th Great Ninja War. She was 2 at the ending of Naruto Shippuden. You could consider her as not a part of Naruto, but she was born in the same timeline. So, around 15 years later, she had grown to become a Chūnin. She’s also one of few known members of the Sarutobi clan right now.
Moegi was a member of Team Ebisu in Naruto. She was usually seen alongside Konohamaru, and Udon. Moegi didn’t really do much, and was used just for gags most of the time. However, that’s not the case anymore. Times have changed and now, she’s a Jōnin of Konohagakure. She’s grown into a fine Kunoichi. Right now, she’s the Jōnin leader of Team Moegi, which includes Inojin Yamanaka, Shikadai Nara, and Chocho Akimichi.
06. Konohamaru Sarutobi
Konohamaru Sarutobi was the apprentice of Naruto Uzumaki back in Naruto, and he idolized him as his role model. He even got some spotlight during the Pain arc, when he managed to take one of them down. Konohamaru Sarutobi has now become a Jonin. He’s the leader of Team Konohamaru, which includes Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, and Mitsuki. Konohamaru will have a huge role to play in Boruto.
Orochimaru was one of the major antagonists of Naruto. He also played a huge role during the 4th Great Ninja War, and even after it. He’s since been responsible for many experiments. If you honestly believe Orochimaru won’t have improved after the war, you’re not watching the series carefully. It’s been around 15 years since then. He’s definitely developed some new stuff along the way.
04. Sakura Haruno
Sakura Haruno was one of the main characters from Naruto series. She was the apprentice of Tsunade Senju. During the 4th Great Ninja War, Sakura Haruno awakened the Byakugou and managed to surpass Tsunade. But, she has just awakened it. So, her skill with it was limited. Now, she has mastered it, and she had also become a Jonin. Sakura also gained immunity to Genjutsu.
03. Rock Lee
Rock Lee has shown great improvement in the series. Back in Naruto, he looked like an exciting character. However, he was not really included in Shippuden. After the war, Lee rose to the position of a Jōnin. He even managed to surpass Might Guy as a Shinobi, which is a great feat. Rock Lee can now open atleast 7 Gates, but as I’ve said so many times, before, I’m sure he can also open the 8th Gate of Death.
The current Five Kage include Naruto Uzumaki, Gaara, Kurotsuchi, Darui and Chojuro. Back in Naruto, except for Gaara, none of them were Kage. The fact that they’ve become Kage tells us that they’ve come a long way, and improved a lot. The Gokage are a force to be reckoned with. Their abilities can barely be matched by other ninjas.
01. Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke Uchiha is the current leader of the Uchiha Clan. He was one of the main characters in Naruto, and continues that role in Boruto. Even though Sasuke lost an arm, he has gained superior control over his Rinnegan. He also learned how to perform handseals with just one hand. Further, Sasuke Uchiha has shown the ability to keep up with even the likes of Momoshiki Otsutsuki, which indicates that his Taijutsu skills have also improved a lot.
Who do you think improved the most after Naruto ended? Let me know in the comments section below!
