In the recent episodes of Boruto, we saw the first appearance of Momoshiki which left everyone stunned. Every Boruto fan had very high expectations for Borushiki and the animators did not disappoint us. 

In the following article, we are going to tell you how Boruto turned into the vessel of Momoshiki Otsutsuki. And we are going to dive a bit deeper; is it good or bad? If it is bad, then just how much worse can it get?!

Sasuke’s Rinnegan Destroyed:

Now if we read Chapter 53 of Boruto manga, we see the fight of Naruto and Sasuke with Isshiki. Right after, Boruto jumped in and destroyed Sasuke’s eye, also known as The Rinnegan

This Chapter left everyone speechless because lots of things happened that no one expected. This can pretty much tell us that Boruto has no control over himself when he is in Borushiki mode. And becoming a vessel of the Otsutsuki is a far more dangerous thing than we imagined. 

What exactly happened in Chapter 53?

Naruto and Sasuke fought with Isshiki Otsutsuki to their very limits. They didn’t have much of a chance of winning against him. All they could do was delay time. 

As soon as their fight ended with Isshiki. Out of nowhere Boruto barged in with a Kunai knife in his hand and put it inside Sasuke’s eye. 

Boruto’s appearance was as if he was completely possessed by someone. And that someone was Momoshiki Otsutsuki. He was waiting all this time inside Boruto for one perfect chance. 

He even said, “I didn’t expect Isshiki Otsutsuki to be defeated by you. So for me the only obstacle left is you”. 

What does he mean by this? Momoshiki plans to absorb all the chakra from the earth and also revive himself. All that stands between him and his plans are obstacles which he is going to kill.

How did Boruto become Momoshiki’s Vessel?

There are many mysteries about Karma seals. We even saw that in Boruto: Naruto Next Generation Episode 65 where Momoshiki Otsutsuki stopped the time and gave Boruto a karma seal on his right palm. 

We can conclude that whenever an Otsutsuki clan member is killed by anyone they place a karma seal on them. This means that they will also get the soul of the Otsutsuki member they killed. 

This also makes the Otsutsukis immortal. In some ways, it is even worse than becoming a Jinchuriki. Possessing the soul of a dead person is a heavy burden. That too of Momoshiki Otsutsuki, a complete psychopath, can be even more troublesome for Boruto

How powerful is Borushiki ?:

In the recent episode of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, Team 7 was fighting with one of the main members of Kara i.e Boro. Even all of them combined had no chance of defeating Boro

They all ran out of chakra and Boro was smashing everything that came in his way. Suddenly Boruto vanished and the next thing we saw was epic. 

Boruto had a horn grown from his forehead and he was surrounded by a blue aura. Just by looking at him, we could feel he was gonna pulverize Boro.

Of course, that is exactly what happened. Borushiki defeated Boro in an instant with a massive Giant Rasengan. By this, we can imagine how powerful Borushiki is. 


So far we can conclude that Boruto has no control over the Borushuiki mode. 

He doesn’t even remember what happened and his body was in total control of Momoshiki Otsutsuki. The kid has to learn how to control this mode or else things are gonna end pretty badly. Let us know in the comments if you think Boruto has what it takes to take control.
