Eida’s Omnipotent Power allows her to control the memories and emotions of others, but intelligent characters like Shikamaru and Amado can still discern the truth. Eida’s overwhelming abilities are a concern, but the latest chapter reveals that her power is not unbeatable. The limitations of Eida’s powers add to the tension in the story and allow for the development of more interesting side stories and subplots.
Warning: SPOILERS for Boruto: Two Blue Vortex chapter #6There is very little power in Boruto even more shattering than Omnipotence – Eida’s mesmerizing ability to control the memories and emotions of others. Its effects are immediate and its duration is eternal for all but a few of humanity. However, as the story progresses in Boruto: Two Blue Vortex, the two prove that even after being seduced by Eida, The truth can be realized if the victim is smart enough.
Eida’s power is later revealed to be an Otsutsuki shinjutsu called Omnipotent. According to Amado, it gives users the ability to write or rewrite the memories of a wide range of people. However, unlike Otsutsuki, which only allows high-ranking clan members to use it, Eida as a teenager has no conscious control over it, which is why this ability only works at full strength. strong after Kawaki’s intervention.
Eida was overwhelmed from the start. Indeed, even Jigen was so concerned about Eida’s power and abilities that he ordered Boro to destroy her. Eida doesn’t even need to fight because almost everyone who meets her is instantly enamored and can’t hurt her. However, chapter #6 of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex proved that even those who fall victim to Eida can still realize the truth.
Amado and Shikamaru begin to lift the veil on omnipotence
In Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Chapter #5, the creators begin to show that instances of Eida’s hold on other people’s minds, previously thought to be unbreakable, are showing signs of weakening. First, there is Amado, who after finding his daughter Abeki’s input on Kawaki’s kama, is certain that he is the only one who can do it, even if this conflicts with his (fabricated) memory when recording it on Boruto, leading him to believe that his memories had been altered. Second, after Amado’s comment about his memories being controlled, Shikamaru conducts an investigation into the matter himself.
In Chapter #6, this leads to him realizing – despite being under Eida’s Omnipotent power – that Boruto is Naruto’s son and that his memories have also been tampered with. As Shikamaru concludes, there is too much cognitive dissonance between what his memories say and what reality shows. When Eida’s powers were fully revealed at the end of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, many fans believed they would witness the most corrupted abilities of the series, which could be detrimental to the series. development of a good story.
Eida’s Nerfing is great for the story
Luckily, the series is now showing that, in addition to those who are naturally immune to the Omnipotence, there are also those who can realize their memories have been tampered with. It is no coincidence that these are the two smartest characters in the manga, Shikamaru and Amado. Eida can rewrite memories but cannot undo or hide past actions. If humans are smart enough to make that connection, Eida’s power begins to weaken.
Power balance has always been a burning issue for Boruto fans since its inception. Finally, the creators finally seem to be addressing those issues by showing the limits of the series’ most corrupted ability. In doing so, they revived considerable tension in the story, while also making other side stories and subplots relevant again. Showing the weakness of Eida’s strength is an important improvement for Boruto: Two blue tornadoesbecause it allows fans to think through and debate all possible outcomes, while also generating fan interest, which is the lifeblood of all good manga.
