Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. In this post I’ll be discussing Onoki’s character in Boruto series and whether or not the justice has been done to his character or not. Some fans have reacted very angrily against the recent actions of Onoki in Boruto series and have claimed that they are destroying one of the prominent characters of Naruto series. I’ll be giving my verdict on this situation in this post.
Let’s begin this post regarding Onoki’s character in Boruto series
First of all, let us talk about Onoki a bit. He is the longest reigning and the former Tsuchikage of Iwagakure.
Onoki excels in earth release techniques and can even use the Kekkei Tota technique known as Particle Release or Dust Release. It is very advanced ability even more than any Kekkei Genkai as Kekkei Genkai abilities are used by combining two nature transformations but, particle release uses three nature transformations, and these are earth, wind and fire nature transformations.
Using this Onoki is able to reduce anything to dust, in other words, he can disintegrate anything to the size of dust particles.
Onoki even destroyed meteors and Susano’o with this super powerful technique of his. Now, I’ll be comparing how Onoki’s character in Naruto series was shown and how it has been shown in Boruto series.
At first, Onoki was a real menacing character. He wanted his village to be the most powerful one and hired various assassins and even Akatsuki to do his dirty work.
But after fighting numerous wars and almost losing all of them to Konohagakure he decided to put an end to this bloodshed which yielded him absolutely nothing but pain. He lost his children and grandchildren to violence. He, later on, believed in the vision of Naruto Uzumaki and Kakashi Hatake, then he agreed on making an alliance with all five villages which seemed to be impossible in the past.
Onoki fought with all his might during the fourth great war. He, in my opinion, surpassed his own limits even though he was in his later stages of life.
Onoki achieved his wish of peaceful relations between all five villages after the allied forces were victorious after the fourth great war.
Now, let us talk about his role in Boruto series. Onoki was shown recently for the first time in the sequel of Naruto series and he got along quite well with the genins of Konohagakure, especially Boruto Uzumaki.
He told them to visit him if they visited Iwagakure. Onoki’s character till recently seemed fine. But it was revealed that he is the one who has created Ku, Kokoyou, Akuta and others. Onoki has now risked a full-fledged war with Konohagakure by his actions.
Kokoyou has killed numerous Konohagakure shinobi which is completely unacceptable. Why would Onoki destroy the peace he fought to create in the first place?
It does not make any sort of sense, does it? Onoki recently sort of explained all he wants.
He wants to save the lives of the young generation of the upcoming shinobi generation of all villages including Boruto and others. Onoki proposed the same thing to Kurotsuchi but she ordered against it.
It seems that Onoki has managed to carry on his research without even his bodyguard knowing it. One thing that doesn’t make sense is that if his intentions are so pious why doesn’t he do what he wants out in the open. Even though Kurotsuchi told him not to carry on the research he still did it behind her back which is an act of treason in the first place.
Second, he is risking a war by his actions as numerous Konohagakure shinobi are already dead. Onoki’s character is still hanging in the balance for now.
We cannot say for certain that his character has been destroyed yet as he can make up for his unintentional mistakes but if he carries on unnecessarily spreading violence his character will surely be destroyed. We all hope that his role and character is still preserved in a good manner.
