Warning: this article contains spoilers for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Chapter 55

With the confirmation of Kurama’s death, fans noted the absence of Naruto’s main feature in the latest chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Masashi Kishimoto Naruto has had a long career in Weekly Shonen Jump. It has released weekly updates from 1999 to 2014. When it ends in 2014, Kishimoto begins serializing Samurai 8: Hachimaru’s Story. Meanwhile, the series has been picked up by Ukyo Kodachi, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is born. Unlike its predecessor, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is published in Jump V next to Dragon ball super and only releases one long chapter a month.

At first, Naruto starts out as a loner. Being the Nine-Tailed Jinchuriki, he has been discarded by both his classmates and society. They look at him in fear after the tragic event that has almost destroyed all of Konoha. With Naruto’s stubbornness and perseverance, he manages to befriend many people. He even becomes the hero of Konoha countless times. His greatest feat, however, is when he finally befriends Kurama, the Nine-Tails. Kurama has always been a threat to the shinobi world, as well as Naruto. If it weren’t for the Fourth Hokage’s seal, Kurama has already run rampant and wreaked as much havoc as he can. So when Naruto finally tames Kurama, he manages not only to eliminate a serious threat but also to control his immense chakra. But with Kurama’s death, it also takes away Naruto’s most distinctive feature.

Naruto’s whisker-like markings on his face have been there since time immemorial, and there is actually a symbolic meaning behind them. When Kushina was conceiving Naruto, Naruto had already been exposed to the Nine-Tails chakra. This may have been a factor in the formation of the whisker marks on his face, as well as being the Jinchuriki of the Nine Tails. Furthermore, whiskers also tend to change during Naruto’s various transformations. But with Kurama’s death, fans have noticed that this trademark has also faded.

Kurama’s life has been turned into sacrifice in order to use the Nine-Tails’ ultimate form, Baryon Mode. He has intentionally tricked Naruto into thinking that they will both die from its use to make sure Naruto does not hesitate to use it. That being said, her death has caused an uproar, as the sounds of crying echo within the fandom. After all, Kurama is the only one who has always been with Naruto (albeit forced) through thick and thin.

Now that Naruto’s whiskers are officially non-existent, his image looks like something is missing. On the other hand, it can also be a strong message that Naruto will no longer play important roles during the upcoming battles of the series, and perhaps, he is no longer more than a supporting character in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
