The series of anime Naruto It is based on the manga of the same name created by Masashi Kishimoto. The protagonist is a young ninja, who from birth was rejected by his village. The reason? Have at Nine-Tailed Fox (Kurama) sealed inside.
Although the blonde was able to win over his town with the help of his friends and a lot of perseverance, one fan decided to imagine the version of the ninja walking on the dark side. This resulted in art shared on Reddit and putting the future Hokage as a terrifying villain consumed by hatred.
The art was published by the Reddit user Cabobsin and also asked the following question to other fans: “If Naruto left the village to join Orochimaru or Akatsuki to destroy the village that oppressed him, how would Sasuke react?”
Naruto Uzumaki as anime villain
The comment section weighed in on the idea of the protagonist as a vengeful boy and also delved into how catastrophic it would all turn out. For example, one user mentioned that if the ninja “joined Akatsuki, they would just take Kurama out of him right then and there.”
Another fan commented, “First, Akatsuki would try to extract Kurama, but if they don’t devise any jutsu to make them realize that the protagoinsta is only half kurama, it could be kept and used while they try to find the other half.”
The user added that “Sasuke would think that the blonde is a traitor for working with Itachi and would probably try to follow or capture him for information.” What do you think of this plot change?
The truth is that we are grateful for the original line of Masashi Kishimoto, but this would not be the first time we explored a alternative world of Konoha. The Truth News reminds you, we saw an alternate timeline earlier in the ninth film in the Road To Ninja franchise, released in 2012.
Fans earlier explored a story where the protagonist’s parents (Minato and Kushina) never died and instead it was Sakura Haruno’s parents who sacrificed themselves. Likewise, characters like Neji, Hinata, and Sasuke were completely different.
How does Boruto start?
The anime of Naruto is available on Crunchyroll and continue with the anime de Boruto. This series started differently in the manga, as the animation started with a movie some time before the new characters became ninjas.
