The Naruto And Boruto The series both feature many compelling villains, but the reintroduction of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Code is another reminder that he’s the worst villain the entire franchise has ever had. Code’s goal is one pursued by many of the villains in the series; become a God by eating the chakra fruit from the Spirit Tree. While Code’s plans and abilities seem intimidating, the villain Boruto has been thwarted in almost all of his plans, leaving him completely confused on the battlefield. Boruto Part 2 is no different.
Boruto wanted to remind fans that Code’s strength and abilities are said to be far beyond Jigen and Naruto. However, since being introduced as a member of Secret Society Kara, most of Code’s plans and fights end shamefully for the trendy villain. Even if his limitations were removed and there was time to train and improve during Boruto’s three-year skip, Boruto’s appearance in chapter #1 immediately erased any sense of worth. fear that readers should have for Code again.
Boruto tells fans Ma is strong but never shows it
After failing to catch Boruto or Kawaki during the timeskip, Code decided to lure Boruto out of hiding by attacking Konoha and Sarada. While the plan technically succeeds and sends Boruto fleeing from hiding, it also causes the leg of the True Son of the Seventh Hokage to hit Code in the face. This isn’t the first time that the current Kara leader’s plan backfired significantly and made it hard for readers to get scared in the face of seemingly powerful enemies.
Code’s hatred and jealousy towards Kawaki’s relationship with former Kara leader and Ōtsutsuki owner, Jigen, is evident. Those intense emotions prompted him to decide to unleash the world-changing cyborgs in order to kill Kawaki and gain the same powers as God Ōtsutsuki. Those plans didn’t go nearly as smoothly as Code had hoped, as both cyborgs sided with Kawaki in Konoha, ultimately making his enemies stronger.
The first major battle between Code, Kawaki, and Boruto features several moments when both adopted brothers outwit and overwhelm the new leader of Kara. Not long after, on a mission to lift his “limit of power”, Code needed to kidnap Scientist Amando. The code is once again overpowered by a reprogrammed Delta and needs to be saved by Eida. Besides being shamelessly overpowered in battle, Eida and Shikimaru also outmaneuvered Code multiple times. Even as Code manages to remove his limitations and is at his strongest, Eida’s younger brother smashes Code to the ground, once again making it hard for readers to take the series’ main antagonist seriously.
Code is a disappointing villain after Jigen, but that could change
After fans watched Naruto’s Bayron Mode destroy Isshiki Ōtsutsuki, it would be difficult to find such a terrifying villain, and Code was not. With each character having three years to develop and train their abilities, there is hope that during that time Code can effectively increase his power as well as Kara’s ability to control the Ten-Tails. Although Boruto’s appearance in Boruto: Two Blue Vortex #1 is the epic return of the series’ protagonist, it once again makes Code looks like a deserving villain instead of the strongest villain BorutoHis dialogue speaks for itself.
