While last year, fans were able to discover one of saddest passages of the history of narutorevealing at the same time its most powerful form, the last chapter of Boruto paints a portrait of a character acting in the worst possible way as a Hokage.

DISCLAIMER: This article contains spoilers for Boruto Chapter 67, if you’re going to read it, look no further.

a tragic event

manga Boruto completely flipped Naruto’s character making him a better father figure, but at the expense of his role as Hokage, thus becoming one of the worst rulers Konoha has ever had as a result of this decision.

In Chapter 67 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generationsreaders learn that indeed, Kawaki would indeed be involved in the death of the biological son of Naruto and eponymous shinobi of the series, Boruto. Faced with this sad news, Naruto is understandably devastated.. But unexpectedly (or not), the Hokage of the hidden village of Konoha refuses to follow the advice of his second, Shikamaru Nara, who suggested that he come up with a plan on how the village should handle Kawaki’s case. Especially since the young boy seems more than determined to do everything to achieve his goals, to the point of murdering one of his relatives.

But the most important moment is when Shikamaru tells Naruto that the village will not accept him not making any decisions in his capacity as Hokage, with many villagers already having prejudices about Kawaki. But Naruto refuses to even consider their feelings, since he treats Kawaki like a member of his family..

We then easily understand Naruto’s inability to abandon Kawaki, coming from the fact that he sees in him the young child he was, rejected by the village because of his status as a Jinchuriki. He always wanted the love and support that Kawaki has now, and that he himself didn’t experience until much later. However, if Naruto has long wanted to be recognized for his true worth by his people, he also wanted to become the greatest of the Hokage, and everything he accomplished was in the service of this dream.. And this latest decision doesn’t really go in that direction. Because as Hokage, Naruto should put aside his feelings and personal traumas to put Konoha’s needs first, even if this decision is painful.

Naruto: Worst Hokage?

In a way, this demonstrates a significant flaw in Naruto as Hokage.whose love for Kawaki compromises his role as leader. However, Naruto’s reaction to Kawaki offers an interesting reversal when considering how Boruto originally portrayed him.. Naruto was initially too engrossed in his work as Hokage to be a good father, to the point that Boruto felt neglected. It wasn’t until later in the series that Naruto finally realized how much his actions had hurt his son. and began to make a real effort to get closer to him.

Additionally, the conflict with Jigen made Boruto realize the importance of the Hokage and the need for attention the village needed. But when Kawaki, a boy who is neither Naruto’s biological son nor a native of Konoha, came into Naruto’s life, Naruto’s past made him accept Kawaki fervently, so much so that he almost forgets his homework.

It is worth considering what the previous Hokage could have done. As everyone knows, the Hokage can sometimes have to make a very difficult decision. We think in particular of the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, the father of Naruto, who did not hesitate to sacrifice the childhood and the tranquility of his newborn to save the village of Konoha. Or Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage, who had to order the slaughter of the Uchiha clan.

Of course, Naruto will always be able to remedy this in the sequel to Boruto. Originally, he vehemently rejected Shikamaru’s advice, believing that the boy he had welcomed into his home had just murdered his son Boruto. It is therefore possible that he later comes to a different conclusion, favoring Konoha’s interests, once he has had time to calm down. Especially now that we know that Boruto actually survived the incident..
