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 rather than depending on his own strength. However, after training under Sasuke Uchiha and battling Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki with his father and teacher, Boruto eventually comes to respect his father and the role he has 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 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, leading him to receive praise without even trying. Because of all this, Boruto has a high opinion of himself and his abilities and freely brags about them, but his arrogance also resulted in him not valuing his team-mates or teamwork to the point where he believed he could do everything and anything on his own, as well as lacking an appreciation for things earned with effort, such as using cheats on video games rather than play them as intended. He does, at least, appreciate his mother and sister, becoming angry when either are hurt physically or emotionally. Boruto was also shown to be quite intelligent, and, at times, he tends to be highly coy about his feelings, to the point where he pretends not to actually care until he later shows his softer side when no one is around. While Sasuke felt the Boruto was quite like his father, Naruto denied this, saying that Boruto was more like Sasuke, though he then agreed that the similarities to him are there.
