Boruto: How Much Weaker Is Naruto Without Kurama?

Naruto’s Kurama separated him from most of the characters in the series. But where does he stand without it by his side?

Naruto Uzumaki serves as the Seventh Hokage of Konohagakure and, being the protagonist of the series and the person with who countless Naruto fans grew up with, is dearly loved. One of Naruto’s most defining qualities throughout the series is his ability to turn his enemies into his friends.

Time after time Naruto showed that he was capable of changing people and Kurama, the beast sealed within him, was no different. The two went on to form what could be described as the closest of relationships in the story. In Naruto’s sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, the story continues with the two having worked together to overcome any obstacle in their way, however, the most recent clash against the all-powerful Isshiki Otsutsuki saw their relationship finally come to an end. Using the double-edged sword called Baryon Mode, Naruto was successful in stopping Isshiki and overcoming him in battle. However, the price to pay for this was huge as Kurama burned up all his chakra and eventually faded out of existence, leaving Naruto alone and, more importantly, a shell of his former self.

Kurama, also known as the Nine-Tails, was introduced to be a weakness of Naruto. Sealed within him by his father, Minato Namikaze, Kurama was a hindrance for Naruto at the beginning of the series. Although there is no denying that he offered tremendous help to him at times, it always came at a huge cost. Naruto was always known as the Jinchūriki of the Nine-Tails and the boy who must be avoided at all costs, even when he was a child. His own friends were scared of him when he lost control and even when he fought for them, Kurama’s influence often led to him losing himself and hurting them instead.

Naruto eventually conquered the hate in Kurama’s heart and this was possibly the biggest thing that he accomplished at the time, especially since Kurama was known to be a mass of hatred in the shape of a fox. Naruto’s story was always about him conquering his weaknesses and making them into his strength and that’s exactly what he accomplished with Kurama as well.

Together, Naruto and Kurama went on to form the most incredible team and with their power, they single-handedly changed the fate of the shinobi world. Naruto went from struggling against the likes of Pain to defeating the reanimated Kage with his mere shadow clones. As the war progressed, Naruto’s control over Kurama’s power improved massively and this was evident when with just half of the Tailed Beast inside him, Naruto overwhelmed five Tailed Beasts at once without even trying. He then went on to fight the likes of Obito Uchiha and eventually, even fought Madara Uchiha.

Returning from a near-death experience only made Naruto stronger as he became capable of using the Six Paths Sage Mode, a power that saw him overwhelm even Madara and exchange blows with Kaguya Otsutsuki, the progenitor of chakra itself. Thanks to Kurama, his stamina was boosted to a point where even after fighting for days against incredibly powerful people, Naruto still had it in him to take on Sasuke immediately afterward, and surprisingly, defeat him too.

By making his biggest weakness into his biggest strength, Naruto Uzumaki changed the world and built a new era of peace. When the very same peace he built was threatened by Isshiki Otsutsuki, the two once again threw their lives on the line but only Naruto walked out safely this time. Without Kurama, Naruto lost a big part of what defined his strength, and what also made him who he really is.
