Naruto series ended earlier this year and it caused a lot of heartbreaks. However, the fans were relieved after it was announced that Naruto would getting a new show named Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. A lot of Naruto characters will still be just as important as they were in the original Naruto series. So, today I have made a list of the characters who will play a major role in the series.
07. Naruto Uzumaki
I’ll start off with arguably the easiest guess. Naruto Uzumaki is the childhood hero of many fans around the world. The focus point of the new generation is his son, Boruto. It’s fairly easy to figure out that Naruto will still be important to the new series. He still has got a lot to offer us.
The slithery snake escaped yet again after the ending of the Fourth Great Ninja War. Well, he was actually pardoned by Kakashi. He has his own son now, plus he resides in a woman’s body, which is creepy. Orochimaru has always been uncouth person. Orochimaru might not be a villain however, he is wise as an own. He is the first person who successfully created synthetic humans.
Konohamaru is the grandson of the Third Hokage. He is a Jōnin of the Hidden Leaf. He is also the leader of Team Konohamaru. Konohamaru has grabbed a lot of attention in the recent chapters of Boruto manga. If he doesn’t die in the next couple of chapters, then I am certain that he will play a major role in the series.
04. Toneri Ōtsutsuki
Toneri is the last surviving member of the Ōtsutsuki clan. He is the main antagonist of the movie, Naruto The Last. Toneri was able to awaken the Tenseigan. He is the first person after Hamura Ōtsutsuki, who was able to awaken the Tenseigan. Toneri knowns about the secret of Jougan and his return in Boruto series is imminent.
03. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto currently runs an orphanage. He is a really clever. I like him as a character, I think he really became a splendid villain after Orochimaru was temporarily dead. He came close to perfecting the Snake Sage mode, I think he will be play a crucial role in the series.
The five Kage collectively are known as the Gokage. They are the strongest characters of their respective villages. Gokage are obviously gonna be important in this series as well. A Gokage summit have already taken place in the series so far.
That summit was called in order to talk about the threat of Momoshiki and Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki. They have already talked about how much greater threats will be coming to Earth. By the looks of it, the Gokage will be heavily involved in the Boruto series.
01. Sasuke Uchiha
So, the final character on the list is Sasuke Uchiha. Sasuke Uchiha is the rival of Naruto Uzumaki. Sasuke is probably going to play a more crucial role than Naruto. He is Boruto’s teacher and Boruto is heavily influenced by Sasuke. Sasuke is without a doubt one of the most powerful shinobi of all team.
There’s even a chance of Sasuke becoming the Hokage if Naruto dies, although that’s highly unlikely to happen. But, his role in Boruto is really special and I don’t think anyone from the original Naruto seris is gonna have the same amount of influence as Sasuke.
