Kawaki’s invasion on Konohagakure has been one of the most talked about topics in Narutoverse for the past year. The main reason behind this is because we are led to believe that Naruto Uzumaki might actually be dead.
However, what Kawaki actually says is, “I’ll send you to the same place as the Seventh, Boruto”. He doesn’t say anything about killing Naruto. People have jumped the gun, and said Naruto is dead. But, what about Sasuke? He’s just as strong, and important as Naruto?
Sasuke Uchiha is one of the strongest characters in Boruto, and he’s the only person equal to Naruto, in terms of strength. Sasuke is also known as Konoha’s other Hokage, because he protects Konohagakure from the outside, while Naruto does it from within the Village.
Being one of the legends, and the strongest to ever exist, it would make sense for Sasuke to be around when problems like the Otsutsuki, or Kawaki arrive. During Momoshiki’s Invasion, Sasuke was there to help Naruto deal with them.
But, what’s extremely confusing is the fact that Sasuke is nowhere to be seen during the time Konoha is destroyed. It could be that Sasuke is elsewhere on a mission, or maybe he’s in another dimension, but I don’t think Sasuke would be absent at such an important time. I think it is likelier that Sasuke is dead, rather than Naruto being dead.
When you look at Boruto, he has got Sasuke’s headband, he’s got Sasuke’s cape, and moreover, he even carries Sasuke’s sword. Further, the fact that Sasuke is nowhere to be seen at a time like this suggests something has happened to him.
While I don’t see any way someone could manage to kill Sasuke, I think we’re yet to see the power level of the Kara. Sasuke himself speculated that they’re a threat on par with the Otsutsuki Clan. But, who knows, maybe their powers surpass the Otsutsuki as well.
Further, Sasuke Uchiha is always away from Konoha, and he likely ran into Kara, just like Jiraiya went to Amegakure to check on Pain. So, I think Sasuke has a higher chance of dying than Naruto. But, it is possible that both of them are alive, which I think everyone wants as well. Hopefully, we’ll find out soon enough!
