In the first episode of Boruto we saw that, in a certain point of the story, Konoha will be almost completely destroyed and Boruto, who will be a teenager by that time, will fight against the presumed enemy of the village; this enemy has been named as “Kawaki”. Despite the fact that we will have time to know him, who could Kawaki be?
Let’s understand it together!
The story of Naruto is basically the story of two friends, rivals and brothers; as their relationship develops, it is ultimately revealed that they are the reincarnations of Hagoromo’s sons Indra (Sasuke) and Ashura (Naruto); in addition, Indra was revealed to be the ancestor of the Uchiha Clan, while Ashura of the Senju-Uzumaki Clan.
Furthermore, by the end of the anime, both Naruto and Sasuke have reached a god-like power level thanks to which they have been able to defeat even Kaguya; despite this, individually they weren’t invincible and, in fact, for example, Hagoromo himself was stronger than Naruto and Sasuke if either were alone. This is the reason for which they needed to work together.
Following this logic, presumably speaking, it is possible that someone who reaches Hagoromo’s power would be able to defeat both Naruto and Sasuke, if they don’t work together.
Despite the fact that there could be a hundred causes for which they couldn’t be able to work together, who will be this character who owns so much power?
In my opinion, he will be Orochimaru. It has already been revealed that Mitsuki is Orochimaru’s son and that he has been created artificially using Orochimaru’s DNA, so I think that Kawaki could be another artificial person created by Orochimaru using both Naruto and Sasuke DNAs, probably taken during the years spent alongside the two boys.
Their mixture could easily reach the Sage Of The Six Path’s level and, in addition, we saw that Kawaki is supposed to have both blond and black hair, which are Naruto’s and Sasuke’s hair.
But if this is true, who could be able to handle such a power?
We know that Hagoromo had a brother, called Hamura, who was the ancestor of the Hyuga Clan; moreover, Boruto comes from both the Senju-Uzumaki Clan (Naruto) and from the Hyuga Clan (Hinata); for this reason, Boruto is also supposed to become able to use both his unique dojutsu and the Tenseigan, especially if Kawaki is going to awaken the Rinnegan because of the fusion between Ashura’s and Indra’s chakras (Senju+Uchiha).
In conclusion, both Kawaki and Naruto are supposed to be able to reach Hagoromo’s level, but I guess they’ll even surpass it in reality, who knows.
