Boruto came along but the question remains unanswered to date. So, let’s look at some of the theories and speculations as to whom did our favorite side character ended up with.

Who is Rock Lee?

Rock Lee was first introduced as an opponent to Naruto and Sasuke. After being challenged by Sasuke, who recently unlocked his Sharingan.

Lee is a master of Taijutsu but he didn’t achieve that mastery without a price. As a child, Lee always suffered because of his lack of ninjutsu skills and he wasn’t able to qualify for the ninja academy because of it.

Who did Rock Lee end up with? Theories

One of the most famous theories is that Rock Lee ended up with TenTen, who is a childhood friend of his as they trained under the same sensei and have also always looked out for each other. This theory has many supporting points such as,

  • Rock Lee and Tenten were shown together in the Boruto movie end credits in which every couple was shown standing together.
  • Rock Lee and Tenten have also supported each other and have been really great friends.
  • The son of Rock Lee, Metal Lee shares the abilities of Rock Lee and Tenten with his Taijutsu mastery and Ninja tools mastery. 

Even though these points make this theory quite solid. It was confirmed in the Boruto series that Tenten is indeed single and has shown no romantic affection towards Lee.

Another theory revolved around the character name Azami. Azami is the great-granddaughter of a legendary Taijutsu user named Chen, who is an inspiration for Rock Lee. Even though this theory looks good, it is very weak as Azami is just shown as a filler character and is nowhere in the manga.

All the theories apart, So far there have been no clues as to whom did Rock Lee end up with or who is Metal Lee’s (Rock Lee’s son) mother. When Kishimoto, the writer of Naruto was asked about this he turned the question down by saying that he isn’t sure.

So far there is no answer as to whom did Rock Lee end up with. It can also be said that Kishimoto willingly left the story open-ended to allow fans to make up theories as he has done this several times in the past. It can also be seen as a trend in Naruto to hide the family details of Taijutsu users as no details about the family of Guy sensei, except his father was ever revealed. So all we can do now is just wait and see if, in future Boruto episodes, we get an answer.
