Boruto is an up-and-coming Shounen anime. It has the potential to become a really great one, too, as it is following the footsteps of its predecessor, Naruto. And we know that this show would have been incomplete without a Chunin Exam, and that is exactly what the writers thought too. The Chunin exams in the anime started in episode 50. We got to see many great fights and challenges. But the most important and turning point for the show was Boruto’s fight. In this article, we will be talking about who does Boruto fight in the Chunin Exams? Along with that, we will also be talking about the complete arc and events leading up to it.
The story of Boruto takes place ten years after the events of Naruto Shippuden. Here we see that Naruto has become a Hokage and now has two adorable kids, Boruto and Himawari. However, Naruto is not always around as he is the Hokage and has to stay up in the office working late. Boruto hates him for the fact that he is not around for his family during such times. And being the son of the Hokage, everyone expects nothing less of him and always thinks that he is special because of the same fact. But he does not like it even a bit. With that aside, let us now looks at who does Boruto fight in the Chunin Exams?
The Chunin Exam Arc In Boruto
When Chunin Exams were announced, Konohamaru was against his team participating in the Chunin Exam. However, his perception is changed after a mission and allowed his team to participate in the Chunin Exams. At the beginning of the ceremony, we can see many ninjas from different villages and the Five Kages. In their first test, they were supposed to arrive at a site where a quiz would be held. However, it is 20km away, and the path is filled with traps.
Boruto and his team made it to the site with 5 minutes left to spare. There the question was asked, and two platforms were kept; true and false platforms for the answer. The participants have to stand on the platform corresponding to their answer. However, the question was a sham, and the real test was to see who survives falling into the pit full of ink. Here too, with the quick thinking of Sarada and Mitsuki’s extending limbs, Boruto and his team survived the first round.
In the second round of the Chunin Exam, two teams were pitted one another in a game of Capture the Flag. Whichever team manages to get the flag of the opposing team advances to the third round. Team 7 was against the Triplets from the Hidden Mist. At first, Boruto was quickly overpowered by them, but he used his Scientific Ninja Tool given to him by Katasuke. He used the Water Style Jutsu and wiped out the triplets. And this is how they managed to advance to the third round of Chunin Exams, a one-on-one fight.
Who Does Boruto Fight In The Chunin Exams?
Boruto fought against Yurui in the Chunin Exams. Yurui was a ninja from the Hidden Cloud Village. Their match was the opening one for the tournament. At first, he was pushed and could not do much as Yurui had a very unique jutsu. But soon, Boruto realized that he had to win, so he used his Scientific Ninja Tool instead. He cast a Shuriken Jutsu and was able to easily defeat Yurui. And thus, Boruto advanced to the next round.
In the semi-finals, Boruto fought against Shikadai. Here too, his power fell short, and so he relied on the Scientific Ninja Tool provided to him by Dr. Katasuke. Boruto was able to defeat Shikadai and advanced to the finals. There he faced Sarada and Shinki in a Battle-Royale style match where all three were on their own. Here, he and Sarada decided to join forces in order to defeat Shinki and take revenge for Mitsuki and all of the friends he ridiculed. However, they were quickly overpowered by Shinki’s Black Iron Fist, with Sarada getting eliminated first.
Boruto faced Shinki head-on using his lighting style and managed to crack Shinki’s Iron Wings. To finish off, he once again relied on the Scientific Ninja Tool and used Kakashi’s Purple Lightning Technique. For those who don’t know, this jutsu requires intense training and is a very high-level jutsu. It is even more powerful than Chidori and Lightning Blade. And Boruto was finally able to defeat Shinki and be declared the winner.
So to summarize who does Boruto fight in Chunin Exams, he fought Yurui of the Hidden Cloud, Shikadai, and finally Shinki and Sarada. Not much with Sarada, as they both immediately team up to defeat Shinki. However, his victory was short-lived. Naruto found out that Boruto was using a Scientific Ninja Tool, which was prohibited in the Chunin Exams. Hence, his victory was void, and he was disqualified. Boruto was also disqualified as a ninja too. And soon after which, Momoshiki attacked the venue. But that is for some other time.
