Naruto Uzumaki is one of the strongest ninja ever in the Naruto franchise . Being the Jinchuriki of Kurma and having access to all of the Bijuu’s chakra along with half of the Sage’s powers, Naruto is clearly unstoppable in the fight at the end of this series. But, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations changed that.
In the latest episode of Boruto , Naruto lost his greatest source of power, namely Kurama. The Kyuubi died after helping Naruto fight against Isshiki Otsutsuki. Due to Kurama’s death, Naruto is now weaker. Although, he still had other powers.
With Naruto weakened, he will face many difficulties when he has to face a number of enemies who are stronger than him. So, which characters are now stronger than Naruto without Kurama? Quoted from CBR , check out the reviews!
7. Kashin Koji
Kashin Koji is one of the former members of Kara. Created by Amado as a Jiraiya clone, Kashin has extraordinary powers. His fighting style is also quite similar to Jiraiya’s, only slightly better maybe. A glimpse of his strength was already shown when he fought Jigen.
He was quite strong against and even defeated Jigen in battle, even though he was in a weaker state. In fact, Kashin was able to fight Isshiki Otsutsuki thanks to his perfect use of Sage Mode and scientific technology. Right now, he seemed to be stronger than Naruto.
One of Kara’s Inners, Delta is known to be a very strong woman. His body has been scientifically enhanced by Amado, Kara’s scientist. As an Inner, Delta’s strength surpassed the level of an ordinary Jonin or Kage.
In his fight against Naruto, he managed to push him away using Six Paths Ssage Mode, which shows how powerful Delta is. Despite losing—because the Bijuu’s power made Naruto stronger, Delta managed to push back Naruto who was enhanced by Six Paths. He could even kill Naruto if the goddess of luck was on his side. Currently, he was deactivated, but his body was unharmed. Without Kurama, Naruto’s strength was clearly below Delta.
5. Rock Lee
This Konoha Jonin is in the ranks of the strongest ninja in the current story. Lee didn’t know how to use the form of Ninjutsu or Genjutsu. However, his skill with Taijutsu is very high. He was a master of the Strong Punch Style. As an adult, he is known to have surpassed Might Guy.
This mastery of his power allowed Lee to knock down all of the Eight Inner Gates. Since Guy was able to fight Madara with this power, it’s no surprise that Lee could do the same. With all of the Eight Inner Gates open, Lee’s level of power would clearly surpass even Konoha’s Seventh Hokage after he lost Kurama.
4. Momoshiki Otsutsuki
One of the strongest characters in the Naruto world came to earth to seek the power of the Kyuubi. Despite being defeated by Naruto, Sasuke and Boruto in the end, Momoshiki managed to save his life by pinning Karma to Boruto. Thanks to this power, Momoshiki can take over control of Boruto’s body. Even though Boruto’s body isn’t completely Otsutsuki, Momoshiki is still much stronger than Naruto without Kurama.
Kawaki was brought by Jigen in order to transfer his Karma. This successfully made it a vehicle for Isshiki Otsutsuki. Over time, his control over that Karma increased and he gradually gained divine power.
After losing that Karma, Kawaki’s body was Otsutsuki for the most part and carried a power that rivaled Boruto Uzumaki’s with Momoshiki. At the time of the time jump, Kawaki was known to be strong enough to destroy Konoha. That is, the level of his strength has also surpassed Naruto.
ntroduced in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Eida is known to have been created by Amado for a long time. He was created to immobilize Jigen. Frightened by her power, Jigen orders that Eida be removed. But, Boro failed. That means, Eida is safe, but locked up.
After Isshiki Otsutsuki’s death, Code looked for him and freed him. It is believed that Eida is much stronger than Jigen, who is strong enough to give Naruto trouble in battle. Now, with Kurama’s death, Naruto was no match for Eida.
One of Kara’s Inners, originally, Code was thought to be weaker than Jigen, but recently his powers have only been revealed. Like Kawaki, Code is also given Karma by Isshiki. However, a number of anomalies gave him White Karma instead of the usual one, even though he was a failure.
With this Karma, his strength surpassed even Jigen. For that purpose, Code had a barrier installed on his body to suppress his strength and make him weaker than the leader. After Isshiki’s death, he now intends to remove the barrier and gain God’s power by consuming planets. Without Kurama’s power, Naruto clearly had no chance against Code in a battle.
