They imagine Naruto as a villain and this is what he would look like

Naruto It is, without a doubt, one of the oldest and most recognized anime franchises in the world. 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 his popularity is at an all-time high, and that 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 he 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 like Orochimaru or Pain.

So, it’s no surprise there are artists like Cabobsin have made an incredible fan art considering the following turn on its way out: What if Naruto Uzumaki had surrendered to his efforts as a hokage and joined his adversaries?.

The impressive thing about this fanart is the details it has. For example, this version not the hokage we know on Boruto: Naruto Next Generationsrather, 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 rage, provoked 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 had joined him. Here, the linchpin was always Kurama, the nine-tailed fox, with whom our protagonist forged an important relationship.

But now that Kurama is no longer with him, after the tragic events in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations worth wondering What will be the future of this powerful ninja? For our part, we would love to see a path of corruption that shows us a more complex protagonist. Although, that will be decided by its author Masashi Kishimoto.
