How Should Naruto Die?
Naruto has overcome death in many parts of the original show, in Shippuden during the Great War and in Boruto also. As a megafan of Naruto, I've always wondered, with his son in the spotlight, is it now time for our hero of Konoha to be laid to rest? ☠️☠️
Let's run through some of the most notable near-death experiences our MC has gone through:
Fourth Great Ninja War
During the Fourth Great Ninja War, Naruto had Kurama ripped out of him as a result of Madara using the 'Demonic Statue of the Outer Path'. This left Naruto as a husk of his former self and without the Kyuubi, Naruto was losing one half of himself. Sakura ran to his aid and managed to resuscitate him. Sakura rushes to Minato and Kakashi's side as Kurama told her that they can use the other half of the Nine-Tails to save Naruto. However, Black Zetsu rushes in and steals the Kyuubi for himself, leaving Naruto hopeless.
Whilst in his inner mental chambers, Naruto meets Hagoromo Otsutsuki, the 'Sage of Six Paths'. Whilst there, he learns about the Indra and Asura inheritance and gains the Rikudo's power, saving his life and changing the tide of the war!
Sasuke vs Naruto: The Final Battle
After the Fourth Great Ninja War, Sasuke and Naruto fight it out one last time at the iconic location they first fought to the death, 'The Valley Of The End'. They wanted to discover each other's resolve for becoming Hokage and perhaps some old grudges too. After lots of bloodshed and losing an entire forearm, they agreed that Naruto would be the light and Sasuke would the shadow that defends Konoha from harm.
Years later, Naruto is annointed as the 'Seventh Hokage of Konoha' and later finds Momoshiki of the Otsutsuki Clan invading the village. Momoshiki releases a giant black ball that was crushing Naruto even with his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. With Boruto and the rest of the village behind him, he decided to let the invaders take him away for the sake of the village. Naruto was then saved by Boruto enlisting the help of the remaining Kage through Sasuke.
Through all of these experiences, we see that Naruto is saved by someone after being dealt a fatal blow. However, what if no one is strong enough to back him up? If Sasuke is taken down, the only other person comparable to Naruto's strength is gone, leaving our once main character with no hope.
We know that this fate will be coming in Boruto but as a megafan of Naruto, I would like to see it in a spectacular fashion with the village being destroyed and there not being any hope except from Boruto. We have seen a glimpse of such a scene with the first episode of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and I believe in this scene, Naruto has just died and Boruto has taken it upon himself to get revenge for his deceased father.
