In Boruto, there are many characters, some we know well and others we’re still getting to know. But for many fans, imagining Naruto characters as grown-ups can be touching. So, in this list, we’ll focus on the most significant characters in Boruto, including some important adults in the story. Let’s dive in and explore!
Most Important Characters in Boruto
Boruto is the series’s protagonist, the mayor son of Naruto and Hinata Uzumaki. He is part of Konohagakure’s Uzumaki clan but also a Hyuga clan descendant. Unlike his father, Boruto grew up surrounded by friends, but it didn’t work well with him.
At the beginning of the series, he is rebellious and acts to get his father’s attention. He is arrogant and skinny, belittling and lacking in respect for his friends. Sasuke Uchiha briefly trained him.
Instead of Naruto giving part of his powers to Boruto, the boy starts to understand it a little better. As a result, he began to train with renewed vigor, trying to overcome himself more and more.
Himawari is the youngest daughter of Uzumaki. She is full of energy and is always kind, in addition to demonstrating a maturity much greater than that of her brother, Boruto. She wonders about her busy father, who understands the reason behind her absence.
During a discussion with his brother, he wakes up by mistake with his Byakugan. Naruto intervenes in the middle of the confrontation and falls faint before the girl’s power, who attests to a tenketsu.
Sakura and Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada, is a kind, sweet, and affectionate. Unlike her parents, she has a great friendship with Boruto, and their bond gets even stronger when Boruto helps resolve issues with her father. Sarada dreams of becoming a Hokage, and Boruto promises to support her in achieving that dream. She carries a heavy responsibility on her shoulders.
Sarada inherited her mother’s medical jutsu abilities, but she also possesses her father’s impressive skills in combat. Unfortunately, her relationship with Sasuke is almost nonexistent because he had to leave when she was very young, and they only got to know each other much later.
Sarada always puts her friends first and can be fiercely protective when they are in danger.
Mitsuki is Orochimaru’s “son,” but he’s not a regular human. He’s a synthetic human, created artificially. He also has a brother who serves a specific purpose. One day, Orochimaru gives Mitsuki a mission to steal a parchment, but when he reads about Boruto Uzumaki on it, he decides to take a different path. He steals a key and escapes.
Later, he ends up in Konohagakure as an exchange student from Otogakure. He becomes a genin, graduates from the academy, and joins Team Konohamaru alongside Boruto and Sarada. Mitsuki is a calm and composed boy, but he’s also very honest and straightforward. He’s incredibly loyal to his friends and takes great pride in fighting alongside them.
Mitsuki greatly admires Naruto and Sasuke, but he believes that his father, Orochimaru, is even stronger than both of them.
Rock Lee’s son with an unknown woman. Metal Lee is a shinobi dedicated but suffering from extreme social phobia. He feels very nervous thinking about the opinion of others about him, and he is even unable to move when it comes to fighting with the public.
He greatly admires his father and constantly demonstrates it. He has the reputation of being a genius in his class.
Shikadai is Shikamaru Nara and Temari’s son and Gaara’s nephew. He inherited his tough appearance and personality from his father, showing disinterest in becoming a shinobi.
However, later in the anime, Naruto ascends to chunin in recognition of his devotion to his allies and leadership skills.
Inojin is the son of Ino Yamanaka and Sai. He is well-behaved and follows the rules but sometimes lacks empathy towards others. It’s like he inherited his dad’s training to suppress emotions.
At first, Inojin looked down on Boruto and thought he used his father’s influence to get special treatment at the academy. However, as time passes, they become friends, and their friendship grows.
Naruto is now a member of the 5 Kage and holds the title of the Seventh Hokage. In the Boruto series, he is around 32 or 33 years old. Due to his essential duties as Hokage, he has become more serious and has less time to spend with his family.
Despite his busy schedule, Naruto is a caring father who tries to show affection and make time for his family. He feels responsible for Boruto’s rebellious nature and tries to teach him the value of hard work and dedication.
Gaara is now the Kazekage, the leader of the Hidden Sand Village. In the past, he was distant and emotionless, but as he grew older, he learned the importance of friendship and caring for others. He has become much warmer and values the love and support of his friends.
Gaara shares a close bond with Shikamaru’s family and even named his son Shikadai after his friend. Their friendship is a meaningful connection in Gaara’s life.
He is the grandson of the Third Hokage. Before, he used to be a carefree and playful boy, but in Boruto, he has become more serious and responsible. Now, he is a teacher for Team 7 (and later Team 15), which includes Sarada, Boruto, and Mitsuki.
His biggest dream is to become the Hokage, just like his deep admiration for Naruto, who is currently the Seventh Hokage.
