Boruto Uzumaki (うずまきボルト, Uzumaki Boruto) is a shinobi from Konohagakure‘s Uzumaki clan, as well as a descendant of the Hyūga clan. He is also a member of Team Konohamaru. Ever since his father, Naruto Uzumaki, became Hokage, Boruto had been resentful towards him for never having enough time for him and his family, causing him to act out indignantly. He also had a tendency to take short-cuts as a ninja instead of depending on his own strength. However, after training under Sasuke Uchiha and battling Momoshiki and Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki with his father and teacher, Boruto eventually comes to respect his father and his role as Hokage, but nonetheless vows to go down a different path than Naruto and become a ninja like Sasuke instead.
Similar to his father, Boruto tends to be loud, energetic, and stubborn; he even has a verbal tic, “dattebasa” (だってばさ), similar to Naruto’s “dattebayo“. However, Boruto is different from his father in a number of ways: whereas Naruto was an orphan who struggled to make friends growing up, Boruto’s family is always there for him and he likewise has many friends; whereas Naruto had to work hard for everything, Boruto’s acquisitions came naturally to him from a combination of prodigious talents and nurturing parents. For these reasons, Boruto has a high opinion of himself and freely brags about his abilities, but his arrogance has made him put no value in his team-mates or teamwork, believing he could do anything on his own. He at least loves his mother and sister, becoming angry when either are hurt physically or emotionally. Boruto is quite intelligent, and he tends to be highly coy about his feelings at times, pretending not to care until he later shows his softer side when no one is around. Both Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto commented that Boruto resembled each other when they were younger.
