Each generation of Shinobi has their ‘gems’. The next generation is no different. Even though the standard of the ninjas is not quite up to the mark, that doesn’t mean talented ninjas don’t exist. There are several powerful next generation Ninjas in Boruto. Some of them even have the potential to surpass the Kage of their own respective village. Today, I’ve made a list of characters from each Village who might surpass their own Kage.
05. Boruto Uzumaki
Boruto Uzumaki is the son of Naruto Uzumaki, and Hinata. He’s the protagonist of the Boruto series, and he’s someone who you’d expect to surpass Naruto one day. Naruto Uzumaki believes he will do it, and so does Sasuke Uchiha, his mentor. If they can clearly see the potential in him, then he will probably grow into a fine shinobi. Boruto is a considered as a genius Ninja. He’s a user of atleast 3 Nature Types even at such a young age. Boruto also has an eye known as Jougan, and we haven’t really seen him go all out yet.
Shinki is the adoptive son of Gaara, and a Genin of Sunagakure. He’s considered to be one of the strongest characters at the Chunin Exams in Hidden Leaf. Mitsuki is a user of three natures. As a Genin, he can use Earth Release, and Wind Release. Combining the two, he can also use a Kekkei Genkai, called Magnet Release. He uses his Magnet Release Kekkei Genkai to create and control Iron Sand.
The Iron Sand was renowned to be the weapon of choice of the Third Kazekage. It is consisted to be even superior to Shukaku, because it can supress a Tailed Beast as well. Shinki also looks a calm and collective fighter, very much like Gaara. I’m sure he’ll be able to surpass Gaara as the Kazekage.
Yurui is a Genin from Kumogakure. He’s probably a student of Killer Bee, as he looks a lot like him, and he looks up to Bee a lot. Yurui uses some explosive Bubblegum technique, which works in quite a strange manner. He is a tactical and calculating fighter. His real strength lies in his swordplay.
Although we haven’t really seen him use them much, he is said to be great with swords. He has two supervibrato Lightning Release swords, which Killer Bee also carries. He is able to infuse them with Lightning Release, making him a very deadly opponent to fight. I don’t know if he’ll surpass Darui or not, but he’s the best Kumogakure have.
02. Kagura Karatachi
Kagura Karatachi is a Genin from Kirigakure. He’s of an unknown origin so far. However, he does look a lot like Yagura. Surprisingly, Kagura wasn’t even at the Chunin Exams in Konohagakure for whatever reason. He is said to be someone with great strength. Even though he’s very young, he already works alongside the current Sixth Mizukage, Chojuro on missions.
That does make him very powerful indeed. Kagura Karatachi also carries a Katana. We don’t really know how skilled he is, but if he’s anywhere near the Seven Swordsmen in the future, he will likely be very powerful.
Unfortunately, there are no next generation ninjas from Iwagakure that we know yet. So, from all the Five Great Villages, I’ve picked the next strongest Ninja. I really think Mitsuki has what it takes to surpass the previous Generation. Even as an Academy student, he has the skill of atleast a Chunin level Ninja.
Further, Mitsuki has also been on several missions with Orochimaru himself. He has the power to use the Perfect Snake Sage Mode, and he’s easily the strongest next generation ninja from the Five Great Nations in my opinion.
Who do you think is the strongest next gen Ninja from the Five Great Nations? Let me know in the comments section below!
