How Naruto has been nerfed after Kurama’s death in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Naruto is one of the most beloved anime in the industry and many of us grew up with the ninja path of Naruto Uzumaki to become Hokage, which is shown in detail at the beginning of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, after Naruto made his dream come true. , has had to give way to the next generation of ninjas, led by his son, Boruto.

Something that seems quite striking to us is that Naruto has not ceased to be relevant or to participate in battles for the good of the ninja world against the Otsutsuki clan. At the end of the Naruto Shippuden manga, the protagonist was in the position of a God, since he had the power of Kurama mastered, as well as the Chakra of the rest of the Tailed Beasts and many destructive techniques.

However, this has been nerfed in Boruto: Next Generations, which has worked in narrative terms. But as a result of this, Naruto Uzumaki has lost two of his most powerful attacks.

Naruto’s shadow clone technique has lost a lot of effectiveness

Obviously Naruto is still an experienced and very powerful ninja, but it is no secret to anyone that he has lost two extremely powerful attacks. The technique of shadow clones is characteristic of the character and he has always used it in creative ways. However, by losing Kurama, this ability has lost power, because in the past, he was capable of creating up to a thousand copies of himself, when the normal for a person was around 3 or 4.

These losses have conditioned the character, who is aware of all this, and when the occasion calls for it, he will have to solve it in another way, since he will not be able to summon those large amounts of clones to help him on missions, not only during the fighting.

The shadow clones, beyond combat, represented a great opportunity for Naruto to learn new techniques and information, because when he absorbed them again, he gained what they had learned. And he no longer has this facility.
