Content Reveal boruto The series has finally reached a dramatic time jump to reveal who is Eighth Hokage And narutowill be the replacement, and the answer will shock fans. Boruto: Two Blue Vortex begins three years after Boruto is accused of killing his father, the Seventh Naruto Hokage Uzumaki. While Naruto and his wife Hinata haven’t actually died, someone needs to take over as Konoha’s new Hokage, and surprisingly, it’s not one of Konoha’s strongest shinobi.
The beginning of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex introduces Konoha’s eighth Hokage: Nara Shikamaru. Throughout the Boruto series, Shikamaru is the extremely powerful right-hand man of the Naruto Hokage with sharp intelligence and quick thinking. Although Shikamaru is a fan favorite for his ability to outmaneuver almost any opponent he encounters, he ranks as the weakest Hokage the franchise has ever had, considering the strength of the shinobi he has ever encountered. held that position in the past.
Konoha’s eighth Hokage stands out for its lack of strength
Throughout Konoha’s history, the village’s most respected ninja has, at times, possessed extraordinary strength with God-like abilities capable of destroying mountains and traveling at the speed of light. Before Shikamaru, the least powerful Hokage was said to be Hatake Kakashi, a true prodigy who proved himself to be amazingly capable even after losing his Sharingan in the Fourth Shinobi War. Before him, however, this title was held by the strongest ninja in the history of Naruto’s world, Hashirama Senju, then his brother, Tobimaru, who invented one of the most absurd techniques. ever since, Resurrection of the Unclean World. Following them was Hiruzen Sarutobi, who later mentored Naruto’s father, Minato, who was feared by all the other Hidden Villages because of his powers. Then there’s Tsunade, who essentially invented medical ninjutsu, and after Kakashi’s time in office, Naruto, who was essentially a one-man army with godly combat abilities.
Compared to them, Shikamaru is definitely superior, despite his great skills as a shinobi.

His talent has been recognized and even considered worthy of being a Hokage candidate by his former mentor, Asuma Sarutobi, and even Boruto himself. However, Shikamaru has previously said that he doesn’t want to take on the position as it would be too much of a drag with all the responsibilities the role entails. Like in the past, the ninja goes against his previous word when called to action and fulfills his duty to become Hokage when the village needs him.
Shikamaru will soon need to prove his worth as Hokage
Many fans might have assumed Sasuke would be a likely candidate to become Hokage in Naruto’s absence, but the Uchiha was once again seen as a traitor after following Boruto into exile, after witnessing Sarada awakening the Mangekyo Sharingan made him believe in his daughter. pleads that Boruto is innocent. Despite that, Shikamaru was given the role of the Eighth Hokage, even though he was one of the many people who had been brainwashed into believing Boruto was the enemy. With real enemies and wanted Boruto appearing in Konoha near the end Boruto: Two blue whirlwinds #1, Shikamaru will likely need to show off his abilities and prove whether his legendary intelligence really makes him worthy to be the Eighth Hokage.
