Naruto is one of the most beloved anime and manga series of all time, without a doubt it is one of the longest-running and most recognized franchises worldwide. By telling a unique story about its protagonist Naruto Uzumaki, although today we will talk to you in detail about what he would look like if he had become the bad guy in the story.
Something that seems quite curious to us is that his story tells us the life of a young ninja who was seen as useless by his village. But, thanks to his effort and work, he managed to become a hokage, the greatest authority figure.
Now that its popularity is at its highest point, and it seems that it could even reach Fortnite, one of the most popular video games in the world … there remains a doubt, what if instead of protecting his village he had fled and had his arc of corruption?
During the first two sagas of this franchise, we saw how Naruto Uzumaki grew up along his ninja path. At first, he was just a little boy who dreamed of being a hokage and being accepted by his village for who he is.
During the chunin exams, he proved that not only did he have the will to become a ninja, but that he would be the best the world had ever known. So, he slowly gained the respect of the entire ninja community, even his adversaries.
Naruto Uzumaki, the villain of Konoha
So, it’s no surprise that there are artists like Cabobsin who have made incredible fan art considering the next twist in their journey: what if Naruto Uzumaki had given up on his efforts as a hokage and joined his adversaries? The impressive thing about this fanart is the details it has.
For example, this version is not the hokage that we know in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, but rather it is a much younger version. From his type of clothing, we can tell that he is from his training stage with the mighty Jiraiya.
Furthermore, the type of pupils he possesses are very similar to when he assumed the form of the four-tailed demon. We see this transformation in episode 40 of Naruto Shippuden, when our protagonist succumbs to the chakra of Kurama, the nine-tailed fox during a fit of anger, caused by Orochimaru.
That villain insisted on unleashing all the power of Naruto that the fourth hokage’s seal had sealed when he was a baby, even if that meant destroying everything around him. All in order to carry out your plans. Fortunately, Naruto Uzumaki managed to come to his senses thanks to the help of his master Jiraiya and Tsunade, the fifth Hokage of Konoha.
However, it seems that many fans like Cabobsin have thought that it would have been more interesting if Orochimaru’s plan had been completed and he joined it. Here, the key piece was always Kurama, the fox with the nine tails, with whom our protagonist forged an important relationship.
