Hey Everyone, we will talk about the new powerup of our favorite Hokage in the boruto manga. The name of this new transformation is Baryon Mode.
In Boruto Manga Chapter 52 Naruto unlocked a new power that was dwelling inside of him for a very long time. But this new power can be lethal for both Naruto and Kurama.
Baryon Mode can be considered as one of the Kinjutsu. For readers who don’t know about Kinjutsu, it’s a type of jutsu that has after-effects on the user’s body like Rasenshuriken, Reaper death seal or affects the whole surroundings or breaks the laws of nature. All of them are forbidden jutsu.
This new power about which everyone is talking about is like nuclear fusion. In nuclear fusion, two nuclei collide to form new nuclei and an immense amount of energy alongside them. This process is used by the sun to produce all the energy in the form of heat.
In the same manner, Kurama and Naruto’s chakra particles Baryon’s will collide to form a new form of energy or chakra that can help them beat even Isshiki Otsutsuki.
Kurama always knew about this power but never suggested it using it because it can kill one of them and also it was not a stable technique that can be used for a prolonged time. But it has one great application that can only be used against someone like Isshiki, as Isshiki was low on lifespan and was about to die in almost 20 hours.
This power can suck the lifespan of not only the user but also of anyone who gets in touch with the user. The punches or attacks naruto made in Baryon mode doesn’t seem to have a significant effect on Isshiki but the life it drew from him made him weak.
The impact of Naruto’s punches reduced Isshiki’s lifespan from 20 hours to straight 30 minutes and continues to drop with each punch Naruto lands on him.
As a result, Isshiki had just a few minutes left at the end of the fight. The power shift this mode has was not very greater than the six paths sage mode with tailed beast’s chakra. But made him enough powerful that he can hold Isshiki’s cubes easily.
One reason why Kurama never suggested it before because its only beneficial effect was shortening of lifespan but this can backfire also as they did not have it in control and that could result in a friendly fire as naruto touches any friend and sucks some years out of them and opponents like Madara who were reanimated had almost infinite life span hence would fail badly against them.
Now, if you are not a manga reader there are some spoilers for you. If you are a true Naruto fan you must have seen various social media pages posting about someone’s death in Naruto. That someone is Kurama, as in Chapter 55 of the manga Kurama dies and bids farewell to Naruto.
Kurama kept on saying that it’s naruto’s life that is in danger and not his own life because Naruto would never let Kurama take his own life so he lied to naruto and sacrificed himself for the sake of Konoha.
Maybe it was his atonement for what he did to Konoha when being controlled by Obito though we cannot blame him as he was under Sharingan’s control. During their last meet, Naruto taunts him saying that he killed his ma and pa, and he doesn’t have anything to say to him.
Naruto will not die as the tailed beast was not separated from him but is dead instead hence the Bijju chakra sealed inside of him simply vanishes. Baryon Mode made Naruto very weak and his body became like lead as he stated because of the temporary state of shock, and he was unable to move.
After Isshiki was defeated and vanished Borushiki made an appearance again and he destroyed Sasuke’s Rinnegan in a flash with a kurenai knife hence Sasuke’s special ability was also destroyed alongside Naruto though he still has his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan.
At this moment, both of the main characters Naruto and Sasuke have lost their special abilities and will not be able to do much. But this can also be a great opportunity for character development as both of them don’t have their special abilities now and they can train to become better by training and learning jutsu just like other strong shinobis who were neither a jinchuriki nor an Uchhiha just like Tobirama Senju .
For Now the writer will focus on Boruto and Kawaki as the main leads of the show. For Naruto fans, it must not be good news but Boruto fans must be very excited to hear this news. As I always say, it’s about how they present it , if their presentation or production is good enough even Naruto fans will love it for sure.
All we can do now is wait and watch all the upcoming episodes and chapters to see how the audience reacts to the storyline. According to rumors, Sasuke is going to take Boruto on training outside the leaf and when they come back Konoha is destroyed just like we saw in the pain arc. This feels nostalgic and exciting at the same time, doesn’t it?
