Team 5

    Denki Kaminarimon 

Denki Kaminarimon

Voiced by: Chihiro Ikki (JP), Erica Mendez (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 1 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/denki_boruto.png

A genin of Boruto's graduating Academy batch and a former classmate and school friend of Boruto. The son of Kaminarimon enterprises' president, the biggest railroad company of the fire country. He's meeky, geeky & with a lot of self trust problems. Unlike Boruto's, Denki's father always tells him what and what not to do, going so far as telling him to go to the Ninja Academy, in the hope they make a man out of him. Denki would rather do what he wants than follow his father's orders, but he doesn't have the guts to go against his wishes. Currently a genin in Team Udon.


  • Adorkable: Very awkward socially, but he's rather nice.
  • Bully and Wimp Pairing: Denki forms one with Iwabee after they help tutor each other.
  • Cyber Ninja: Well, not yet, but he expresses his desire to learn ninjutsu and incorporate it with machinery and science. Thus far he has demonstrated skill in hacking for ninja exercises and tactics.
  • Demonic Possession: Gets possessed by something looking like a chakra snake in the first episode.
  • Extreme Doormat: He is often pushed around by kids of his age who takes his money by force.
  • Geometric Magic: He knows the String Light Formation, a binding seal which can immobilize enemies but since his powers are undeveloped he can't maintain the jutsu for very long.
  • Magitek: He tells Boruto he would like to find a way to combine technology with ninjutsu and in the opening appears to incorporate a laptop as a component.
  • Megane: He sports specs, thus he qualifies as one.
  • Non-Action Guy: While Boruto and the rest of his classmates managed to evade the opposing girls' team by jumping and sliding over/under them, he is unable to do the same and resorts to surrendering to them. By Episode 12 he has improved his physical skills considerably.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Attempts to at least injure the kids who bully him in a train accident while under Demonic Possession of a chakra snake.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Denki never wants for money but he is a very sweet kid.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He's very similar to the character from the manga, Tentou Madoka: They are both Lonely Rich Kids that befriend Boruto and wish to become shinobis; interestingly they both made their appearances roughly at the same time too.

    Iwabee Yuino 

Iwabee Yuino

Voiced by: Shinya Hamazoe (JP), Ray Chase (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 2 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iwabee_boruto.png

A genin of Boruto's graduating Academy batch and a former classmate and school friend of Boruto. The oldest student in Boruto's class. He's infamous for failing to graduate from the academy. He crosses Boruto path when he accuses him of riding on his father's success and fame. Needless to say, considering Boruto's relationship with his father, he takes it quite badly and they end up fighting. Currently a genin in Team Udon.


  • Blood Knight: He likes ninja subjects, he's good at Taijutsu & Ninjutsu but gets bored quickly in academics lessons and subjects.
  • Book Dumb: As a result of his poor grades, he fails to graduate from the Academy more than once. It turns out he has problems reading a book due to his poor attention span until Denki helps him to find a way to concentrate.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: He seems like he would fit in better in the time before the war.
  • The Bully: He starts as this to the rest of the students of the Ninja Academy.
  • Bully and Wimp Pairing: Iwabee forms one with Denki after they help tutor each other.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After his fight with Boruto in Episode 2, he changes his attitude to be much friendlier with him and other students.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He apparently can use Doton, to the surprise of the other students.
  • Fantastic Racism: He has a strong dislike for Hidden Mist ninja and their village due to his grandfather being killed by them in the past.
  • Good Old Ways: He blames the fact that the Academy has subjects unrelated to ninjas and ninjutsu for his failing to graduate from the academy. He doesn't even show up in lessons he doesn't like.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Iwabee is a very big fan of Naruto's and scoffs at the idea of the other four Kages being on his level. He's also a huge fan of Kakashi and Gaara.
  • Hidden Weapons: His staff has a sword hidden inside it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his brashness, he is shown to care for others, even jumping into a burning building to save some children.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a red cap covering his ears and secured by a blue string that holds up all his hair excluding a single bang that hangs between his eyes.
  • Parental Hypocrisy: Or rather adult hypocrisy. He thinks the adults had it better during their age because everything could be solved with power, and only now they've decided times have changed.

  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: He wears a white sleeveless shirt.

  • You Killed My Father: Holds a disdain towards Mist ninjas for killing his grandfather.

    Metal Lee 

Metal Lee

Voiced by: Ryo Nishitani (JP) Billy Kametz (EN)

Debut: Naruto Chapter 700 (Manga), Boruto: Naruto the Movie (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metalleeart.png

Rock Lee's son. A genin of Boruto's graduating Academy batch. A childhood acquaintance, former classmate, and school friend of Boruto. Currently a genin in Team Udon.


  • Accidental Discovery: Metal accidentally opened the first of the Eight Gates during his fight with his dad, due to the adrenaline caused by both the fight itself and his anxiety flaring up. This in turn caused him to suddenly use the Leaf Hurricane on Rock, and send him flying into a wall.
  • Adorkable: According to the Boruto series, he's very awkward in front of people, easily distracted by crowds which makes it harder for him to focus during group exercices.
  • All There in the Manual: His name and his relation to Rock Lee isn't given in the final chapter of Naruto nor in Naruto Gaiden. Both his name and his being Rock Lee's son come from an official data sheet.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: If anything, it's even more hardcore than his father's.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: As one might expect, Metal is a taijutsu specialist like his father before him.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: As might be expected for Lee's son, he's got enormous eyebrows just like Guy and Lee.
  • Confusion Fu: Metal suffers from extreme anxiety issues, so when he fights in-front of others, he moves very erratically, in a manner similar to his father's Drunken Fist style. These erratic movements can catch his opponents off guard and make it hard for them to predict how he'll attack.
  • Generation Xerox: He takes after Lee and Might Guy, though at first the similarities are mostly physical. He's a Child Prodigy with Performance Anxiety, unlike Lee and Guy's horrendous lack of talent and Leeroy Jenkins Testosterone Poisoning mentality.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Metal and his teammates are shown to be huge fans of Gaara, and even lament about how lucky Shikadai is to have Gaara as an uncle.
  • Hot-Blooded: Another characteristic he inherited from Lee and Guy.
  • Meaningful Name: Metal's name sets up a naming pattern following that of his father, Rock.
    • Like his father, the Lee surname reflects his resemblance to renowned martial artist Bruce Lee.
    • His given name, Metal, represents how he is a Superior Successor to his father and Might Gai.
      • Music-wise, Heavy Metal music is seen as the evolution of Rock and Roll music.
      • Ore wise, Metal is both a harder and more durable material compared to Rock.
  • Missing Mom: His mother (whoever is or was Rock Lee's wife) has yet to be seen.
  • Mistaken for Badass: Played with. While he is indeed a badass Bare-Fisted Monk, his erratic movements during his fight with his father are mistaken for being purposely done to keep Rock Lee off guard, when really they're a result of his anxiety flaring up and making him act erratic.
  • Performance Anxiety: He's a damn fine shinobi... as long as no one is watching...
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He gained many of his looks from his father — hair color, eye color, skin complexion, body shape, and Big Ol' Eyebrows. The only differences are eye shapes and hair styles.
  • Super Mode: He's shown to be able to use at least 3 of the 8 chakra gates.
  • Superior Successor: While his Taijutsu still has a long way to go before it matches his father's, Metal can actually externally mold his chakra and use ninjutsu, having used the transformation jutsu and participated in the group sealing jutsu during the Genin exams.

    Sumire Kakei (Shigaraki) 

Sumire Kakei (Shigaraki)

Voiced by: Aya Endo (JP), Erica Lindbeck (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 2 (Anime), Boruto Chapter 18 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sumire_boruto.png

A genin of Boruto's graduating Academy batch. A former classmate and school friend of Boruto. She was the class representative of Boruto's class during their Academy years. She was seen mostly with Sarada & Chouchou during her Academy years, though she sometimes also hanged out with Wasabi and Namida with whom she is now teammates. Initially a genin in Team Hanabi, she is currently a research assistant in Konohagakure's Scientific Ninja Weapons Team.


  • Animated Tattoo: The eye at the center of the Gozu Tennou opens wider the more chakra it's fed. When it disappears from her back, the new mark on her left palm (which looks just like that same eye) can blink freely.
  • Becoming the Mask: For all her insistence that Sumire Kakei never existed, it's the experiences she made with that indentity (along with a speech from Boruto) that sever her connection to the Nue and allow them both to abandon their revenge-driven purposes. In the end, she completely embraces said mask and becomes all the more happier for it.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She puts up a great act of Class Representative to hide her real goals. Averted in that she tried to become this, but as Boruto talks her out of it, she realizes deep down she really is a nice girl who was manipulated by her father. With some introspection, she returns to the persona she believed she made up which was what she was deep down all along.
  • Big Bad: Of the Academy Arc in the anime.
  • Breakout Character: Sumire became one of the most popular Boruto characters after the Nue arc, popular enough to be brought back in subsequent anime episodes, with one focusing entirely on her - and to be confirmed as a canon character. Even the directors and executives of the anime have stated " they've noticed" how popular she is and are working to include her more.
  • Class Representative: She mentions in her introduction to be the class rep of Boruto's class.
  • Color Motif: Violet. It's in her name, hair, clothes, and her eyes, and later it also turns out to be the color of her and Nue's chakra as seen by Boruto's dojutsu.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Played straight in the anime where her eyes are purple just like her hair. Averted in the manga where she has blueish violet hair and dark grey eyes.
  • Easily Forgiven: The fact that she is just a really nice child with a horrible past plays a decisive factor into this because otherwise she did nearly kill several people by severely draining them of their chakra and had launched Nue as a part of a plan to blow up the entire Leaf village from within.
  • Finger Firearms: Her primary method of attack is to fire water bullets from her fingertips this way.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Has two, long braided pigtails.
  • Generation Xerox: Ends up being a scientist like her dad, as Chapter 18 of the Boruto manga revealed. She works with Katasuke. However, due to fan demand, episode 55 of the anime showed that she partook the chunin exams and didn't become a scientist.
  • I Am Not My Father: When is becomes apparent that Nue has grown fond of Sumire after all this time and thinks of her as its parent, Boruto asks her if she's really going to do as her father did and turn Nue into a weapon of revenge. Sumire realizing that she can't is what breaks the Gozu Tennou.
  • Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: Raised by her father for the sole purpose of exacting his revenge on Konoha by blowing it up with a giant monster for which she would serve as the summoner. Her dedication to that purpose is so great that she's willing to die to empower Nue further... until Boruto talks her out of it.
  • Love Triangle: Is interested in Boruto. Sarada has a crush on him and Sumire in turn declares her own interest in Boruto to Sarada in chapter 19.
  • Making a Splash: Her specialty is water style ninjutsu which she can use to fire from a Finger Gun, create walls and clones from.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means "violet" (the flower) in Japanese.
  • Nervous Wreck: One of her defining traits; she has a tendency to worry and freak out over various problems.
  • Nice Girl: While not very outspoken, she shows genuine concern for her classmates. Sumire is also very respectful and dutiful, and wishes to avoid conflict if necessary. While some of it is an act, she actually does enjoy spending time with her classmates and isn't nearly as cold-hearted as she thinks she should or tried to be in order to fulfill her father's vendetta.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Or in this case Obfuscating Meekness, she always acted flustered around any physical conflict; turns out that she's much more capable of combat.
  • The Power of Friendship: What eventually redeems her and allow her to come back to the Academy with her classmates.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her two braids reach past her waist.
  • Revenge by Proxy: She took on herself to get revenge on Konoha since her father couldn't do it while he was alive.
  • Sailor Fuku: She dons a black t-shirt, with a violet dress over it that has a white collar on it, knotted by a purple ribbon, almost resembling a seifuku overall with long black stockings.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her outfit for the crux of her mission to destroy Konoha has the back entirely exposed since that's where her Mark of the Beast is, so it's less for fanservice and more for function.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: Sumire's main method of hooking victims up with her Gozu Tennou seems to be by biting them with a snake made of her chakra. This snake is also an effective weapon — Boruto needs a kunai to stop its bite, and it comes head-to-head with one of Mitsuki's white snakes.
  • Shipper on Deck: Ironically, despite her own feelings for Boruto, she cheerfully acknowledges that Sarada and Boruto get along really well in episode 49 and even encourages Sarada to go after an agitated Boruto in Episode 34. She openly asks Sarada whether she is interested in Boruto in chapter 19 and teasingly winks at her when she declares her own interest in him.
  • Ship Tease: With Boruto. She openly admits she is interested in Boruto to Sarada.
  • Shrinking Violet: Sumire is a meek and quiet girl. It's an act to deflect suspicion so she can harvest chakra in secret, though the shyness turns out to be real.
  • Starter Villain: The first of Boruto's opponents in the anime despite not being a villain herself.
  • That Man Is Dead: Or as she said, Sumire Kakei never existed. It's just a facade so the others would not suspect her. However, rather ingeniously, it is her "original bad girl" persona that was fabricated and, with some help from Boruto, abandoned for good becoming "Sumire Kakei" from that point on.
  • Walking Spoiler: Saying basically anything about her other than her role as the class rep and her meek personality spoils major parts of the first arc and its aftermath.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair in anime and blueish-violet hair in the manga.
