Ōtsutsuki Clan


A mysterious race of so-called celestial beings who have been involved in mankind's affairs since the dawn of the Age of Ninja. Kaguya's defeat and imprisonment has only drawn the attention of more Otsutsuki, who are now descending upon the world with the intention of doing what she could not.

The main antagonist of Boruto: Naruto the Movie, alongside his servant Kinshiki, they are members of the mysterious clan of celestial beings, the Ōtsutsukis. Arrogant, sadistic and psychotic, Momoshiki will stop at nothing to accomplish his goals and considers anyone other than himself to be insignificant. He interrupts the Chunnin Exams in order to capture Naruto, or more specifically, what's sealed inside of Naruto.

  • Adaptational Badass: He is a more dangerous of a foe in the Boruto anime than he is in the movie. In the movie, once he transforms and fights Naruto and Sasuke, the two almost completely wipe the floor with him with minimal difficulty. In the anime, he is much more capable, able to actually take them by surprise and seemingly gaining the upper hand initially, and even during the fight, he fairs far better.
  • Ax-Crazy: He keeps it sealed up usually, but he positively drools at killing innocents and wanton destruction.
  • Big Bad: He's the main antagonist of the Boruto movie, seeking to retrace Kaguya's chakra energy and collect the scattered energy of the Shinju in order to become all-powerful and immortal. Him, Kinshiki, and Urashiki showed by themselves why Kaguya was scared enough to turn thousands of humans into an army of White Zetsus; to fight off the entire clan.
  • Clone by Conversion: How he will resurrect himself through Boruto's Kama.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Kaguya had good intentions for her children and humanity before her Motive Decay and fear of the entire clan consumed her while Toneri was motivated by misguided loyalty to his family. In contrast, Momoshiki has no higher goals than stealing power and has no care for his father figure or the rest of his clan. A mentality that the clan grooms the current generation to have.
  • Dimensional Traveler: He can access Kaguya's dimension and other worlds, presumably with his Rinnegan.
  • Death of Personality: Once the Kama takes full control over Boruto, Momoshiki's genetic profile and personality will overwrite and replace Boruto's, effectively erasing Boruto.
  • Demonic Possession: It turns out people marked by Kama can become possessed by an Ōtsutsuki. Boruto briefly ends up controlled by Momoshiki when he finally destroys Boro. It gets even worse when it's revealed that the Kama will overwrite Boruto's genetic profile with Momoshiki's, effectively resurrecting Momoshiki and erasing Boruto's personality.
  • Devour the Dragon: Absorbs Kinshiki to power up for his confrontation against Naruto and Sasuke.
  • The Dreaded: Kaguya was so afraid of his eventual arrival that she created the White Zetsu army in preparation in order to fight him.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Debuts in the Boruto anime and novel after the Nue arc, shown eating a Chakra fruit with Kinshiki on some other planet, chronologically much earlier than when he arrives during the Chunin Exams from the movie.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: He has Rinnegan in the palms of his hands. Later gains one on his forehead after absorbing Kinshiki.
  • Eye Scream: The Rinnegan in Momoshiki's palm that can absorb techniques is gauged out in the final battle with him, leaving him vulnerable to the Boruto's final Rasengan.
  • Evil Counterpart: With Boruto. Like the young man, he thinks that hard work is for fools and if one simply attains power easily, what more is needed? The major difference is Boruto learns to appreciate the nature and benefits of hard work and abandons this mindset, ultimately becoming a better person in the end; Momoshiki sticks with his mindset and it ultimately gets him killed.
  • Fairytale Motifs: He is inspired by the folklore hero Momotarō the peach boy and his animal shaped attacks of monkey, pheasant and dog are based on the familiars of Momotaro.
  • Foreshadowing: Although he had already appeared in the Boruto movie at the time, he was shown in silhouette during Kaguya's flashbacks in the anime, along with Kinshiki and Urashiki. Is alluded to as a threat greater than Kaguya in Naruto Gaiden.
  • Horned Humanoid: He has a pair of forward-curved horns resembling rabbit ears.
  • Laughing Mad: Momoshiki devolves into this whenever he's causing pain and/or gets the upper hand on his foes.
  • Lazy Bum: He is thoroughly against training and building up one's own power, and instead wishes to kill and take someone else's.
  • Magical Eye: He has the Byakugan and Rinnegan. With his Rinnegan, he's able to absorb Ninjutsu and fire it back at his opponents many times stronger or choose to covert the energy into Chakra Pills to power/heal himself.
  • One-Winged Angel:
    • Turns into a red demonic ogre after absorbing Kinshiki, vastly increasing his raw power and gains the ability to generate weapons for himself. Even Naruto and Sasuke working together barely slowed him down.
    • In the anime, he instead gains black lines across his body and a demonic, but almost regal like look as well.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Of Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring, being the subject of Sasuke's top-secret investigation.
  • Powers as Programs: As Boruto noticed, Momoshiki's ability to absorb ninjutsu and fire them back as ammo is very similar to the Kote tool.
  • Pressure Point: In the Anime version of his fight, he uses taijustu similar to the Gentle Fist.
  • Pride: This man oozes this trope all over the place. He constantly looks down on others and has absolutely no respect for others, including his own partner.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He shows signs of this during his attack on Konoha, randomly launching his attacks to his surroundings while laughing maniacally. Also, he holds a grudge against Boruto simply for ruining his garments.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His Rinnegan are blood-red, giving them a striking resemblance to Kaguya's Rinne-Sharingan.
  • Sadist: Momoshiki destroys the surrounding area around Naruto just because he can and laughs at the thought of innocents dying at his hands.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: Can create Black chakra rods and later energy weapons instantly.
  • The Sociopath: A prideful, narcissistic psychotic that holds no loyalty and is positively gleeful at the thought of killing civilians.
  • Starter Villain: Of the Boruto movie and manga. Played with because on the Sorting Algorithm of Evil he is one of the most powerful entities in the the verse.
  • This Cannot Be!: Momoshiki's final thought process when Boruto slams his Super Rasengan into him, sending him flying into space and blowing up into nothingness.
  • Undeathly Pallor: He has chalk-white skin and hair, which coupled with his horns and Byakugan indicate he's a member of the Ōtsutsuki clan.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: While Kinshiki does insist, Momoshiki still unhesitatingly absorbs his father figure in order to power himself up. The anime even reveals this is a custom amongst the clan.
  • Variant Power Copying: His Takamimusubinokami ability allows him to absorb ninjutsu through the eye in his right hand and unleash an amplified version of that same jutsu from his left hand.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: Takes a brief interest in Boruto's destiny upon seeing his future with the Byakugan, but prioritizes his mission first and foremost. When Momoshiki dies he becomes completely invested, hoping to see his cursed fate play out from the afterlife.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has silvery hair and is the villain of the Boruto movie, seeking to assassinate Naruto.

    Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki 

Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki

Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto (JP), Wally Wingert (EN), Santos Alberto (Latin America, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4)

Debut: Boruto Chapter 2 (Manga), Boruto: Naruto the Movie (Anime)

The loyal servant of Momoshiki, who raised him as a son. Silent, strong and serious to a fault, Kinshiki follows his master wherever he goes and attacks anyone who displeases Momoshiki. Of the two, Kinshiki is more skilled at Taijutsu while Momoshiki is more skilled at Ninjutsu.

  • Body Horror: His muscles get torn up from breaking out of the Kages' binding jutsu. Despite that, he still has enough strength to chop down his planet's Shinju tree.
  • The Brute: He is massive enough for Momoshiki to sit on his shoulder, and skilled in Taijutsu. To give an idea of how skilled he is, he's able to fight Sasuke to a standstill and can briefly fight off several of the Kage off.
  • Determinator: When the Kages bind him and then corner Momoshiki, he uses all his strength to escape, even though doing so tore up his muscles.
  • The Dragon: He's Momoshiki's second-in-command.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Debuts in the Boruto anime and novel after the Nue arc, with Momoshiki on some other planet, chronologically much earlier than when he arrives during the Chunin Exams from the movie.
  • Energy Weapon: Kinshiki is able to generate several weapons from his back to use against his enemies: this includes swords, spears, hammers, axes, etc.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Kinshiki risks his life and body to ensure that Momoshiki is safe and willingly gives up his life to power up Momoshiki. The novel reveals that Kinshiki cares for Momoshiki like a son. Too bad, the feeling is not mutual...
  • Evil Is Petty: Is hellbent on killing Sasuke for chopping off part of his horn in their first battle.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs: He is based on the folklore hero Kintaro the Golden Boy, a giant of a youth with supernatural strength raised by a mountain witch to become a warrior of unsurpassed martial skill. The giant axe wielded by Kinshiki is based on the signature weapon of Kintaro.
  • Horned Humanoid: He has a single sideways sweeping horn resembling Madara's.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Don't let his size fool you; Kinshiki can keep up with, and sometimes overwhelm, Sasuke in sheer speed. Sasuke would have died in his first tussle against Kinshiki if not for his abilities with the Rinnegan.
  • Magical Eye: He has the Byakugan.
  • Super Strength: Kinshiki's raw strength surpasses even Tsunade and Sakura's. When he first appears in the Chunnin Exam stadium, slamming his fists into the ground while he was in the middle was enough to turn the stadium into rubble. During the climax, Kinshiki swings his spear to fend off the Five Kage and Sasuke, chopping off his planet's Shinju tree like nothing.
  • Undeathly Pallor: Like Momoshiki, he has pale skin and hair, which along with his horn indicates he's a member of the Ōtsutsuki clan.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: During the fight with Naruto and Sasuke, Momoshiki absorbs him.

    Urashiki Ōtsutsuki 

Urashiki Ōtsutsuki

Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai (JP) Ben Diskin (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 53 (Anime)
Click here to see his transformed appereance 

A member of the Ōtsutsuki clan who was sent to deal with Toneri by orders of the main clan. He arrives simultaneously with Momoshiki and Kinshiki, assisting them as he sees fit. When Momoshiki falls, Urashiki continues his plan to hunt down the Tailed Beasts while keeping an eye on Boruto Uzumaki, bearer of Momoshiki's Karma.

  • Ape Shall Never Kill Ape: He mentions that since Toneri is also a member of the Ōtsutsuki clan no matter how divided by dimensions and time, he is forbidden to kill him; so instead he traps him in a time prison. This is also why he is more interested in keeping Boruto alive, albeit in pain, then in killing him outright.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared for the first time as a silhouette alongside Momoshiki and Kinshiki in Shippuuden Episode 461, when Kaguya mentions them to Hagoromo and Hamura as an upcoming threat.
  • Eye Scream: He eats both of his Rinnegan to get a power boost after getting cornered by Boruto, Jiraiya and Naruto.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs: Urashiki is based on the title character of the Japanese fairy tale Urashima Taro, a fisherman who saved a turtle who then took him to the undersea palace of the dragon king as a reward for his kindness. In the fairytale the Palace of the Dragon King has a Year Inside, Hour Outside time flow which is used as the basis for Urashiki's sealing jutsu which freezes Toneri in time for ten thousand years and his use of a turtle as a time-traveling device. Like Urashima, Urashiki is also a fisherman and wields a fishing rod as his main weapon.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He speaks very softly and politely, but he has an enormously sadistic attitude. He even feigned to be offended by Mirai's hostility and rudeness when he's being so polite.
  • Feathered Fiend: His final form as a humanoid white bird-like creature.
  • For the Evulz: During the Urashiki Returns arc, he attacked and destroyed the home of the farmers who helped Boruto nearly killing the father; when questioned by Boruto on why he did it, he answers that he was just frustrated and destroying the farm amused him and relieved him of his boredom.
  • Magical Eye: Like the rest of his clan he can use the Byakugan. He can also use Rinnegan, including his own special blue variation that gives him powers of time manipulation. All of them turn golden after his transformation.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: He kept his full power a secret from Gaara and Chojuro, using his Rinnegan to escape.
  • One-Winged Angel: After eating his Rinnegan, he transforms into a bird-like humanoid.
  • Power Copying: He steals other's chakra with his fishing line, storing it within his gourd which allows him to use their power.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: A favorite tactic of his. Urashiki uses his Rinnegan to escape Gaara and Chojuro after being cornered by them during the Chunin Exam arc. He later uses another Rinnegan to escape Sasuke after his scuffle with Boruto and Shinki.
  • Time Travel: Small scale. He can invoke a "Temporal Rewind" to turn back time a few seconds and escape.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: After observing Momoshiki's battle during the Chunin Exam arc, he takes an interest in Boruto. This is because Boruto is now Momoshiki's vessel, something he obliquely refers to at their final confrontation.

    Toneri Ōtsutsuki 
After being an antagonist in The Last: Naruto the Movie, Toneri tries to make amends. See his entry in Naruto - Ōtsutsuki Clan.

    Isshiki Ōtsutsuki 

Isshiki Ōtsutsuki

Debut: Boruto Chapter 35 (Manga)
"All people have a predestined fate"

A member of the Ōtsutsuki Clan who is currently using Jigen as a vessel. He came to Earth with Kaguya.

For tropes as they relate to Jigen, see his profile on the Kara page here

  • Abusive Parents: The guy experimented on his adoptive son, right after "saving" Kawaki from his real father.
  • Badass Longcoat: Favors a long open chested jacket with his personal emblem stamped across the back. He summons it immediately once he is revived.
  • Big Bad: He’s the true mastermind behind Kara and he was using Jigen as vessel to keep himself alive after Kaguya betrayed him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He can dominate both Naruto and Sasuke going all out on him, though not without costs.
  • Curb-Stomp Cushion: He defeats Naruto and Sasuke handily, but exhausts himself to such a degree in the process that he opts to not kill Naruto as it would cost too much of his remaining strength.
  • Demonic Possession: Currently possessing the body of Jigen, the leader of Kara. Kawaki has been groomed as his next host.
  • The Dreaded: His mere existence is enough to scare Sasuke into a Not So Stoic moment.
  • The Faceless: Serves as this throughout his initial appearances from Chapter 36 to 47. During these sporadic appearances, he is always shown to the audience from an angle that obscures his face, hinting at something unique about him. When we finally do see his face, we discover that he has a never-before-seen ocular jutsu in his right eye.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs: Like the other members of the main Ōtsutsuki family, Isshiki is named for a fairy tale character, in this case Issun Kotaro, also known as Issun-Boshi. Like the diminutive Issun, Isshiki's fights with needle-like weapons and has the power to shrink himself. The symbol on the back of his jacket is that of the magic hammer wielded by Issun.
  • The Fatalist: His very first quote, once revealed, implies this. Admittedly, he isn't exclusively pessimistic about it, as he respects that Jiraiya died in service to a cause greater then himself. Furthermore, he believes his ultimate victory to be destined. Given the Flash Forward...
  • Faux Affably Evil: Upon entering Naruto's house, he apologizes for entering with shoes on and claims he's trying to bring back his wayward son. He then attempts to kidnap Kawaki while abusing him physically and emotionally. Admittedly, it's not entirely an act: he genuinely was sorry. It's just that he didn't care enough to stay sorry for very long. This actually applies to many interactions he has with characters in the series: moments of sincerity followed by senseless brutality.
  • Foil: To Orochimaru. Both are crazy scientists whose experiments are out of this world and bring suffering to others at large when abused. Both also have otherworldly powers that make them a huge threat when confronted. Both have "sons" that they experimented on to give them more power. However, Orochimaru has made a switch to good and became an ally that can provide intel our heroes can't get on their own. In his own way, his actions were genuinely meant to help Mitsuki grow. His experiments favor organic technology. Isshiki, on the other hand, could care less about Kawaki and only seeks to enhance himself. His own experiments favoring ninja tech.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He's the one who gave Jigen his Karma. Slowly turning the once human Jigen into a real Ōtsutsuki. It is said that should he regain his full strength in a suitable form, he will become unstoppable. He is eventually revealed to have been around since ancient times and in fact was Kaguya's partner before she turned on him, making him a threat on par with her in scope.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Kaguya bisected him when he dropped his guard, but he barely survived by hijacking a unlucky monk's body.
  • Keeping the Enemy Close: He had reservations about Amado and Koji Kashin for some time before their betrayal. However, he also made full use of their respective skill sets in that time, giving them assignments that allowed him to ascertain their true loyalties.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Has one. Literally. His powers grant him access to a pocket dimension where he stores items he shrinks for later use. Time does not pass within it. He makes liberal use of it both in and out of combat, summoning a dinner table, candles, a wine bottle, and a fully cooked meal out of thin air to replace the ones Delta had just destroyed.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: He can shrink himself and any non-living thing, making it hard for anyone other than Sasuke to keep track of his movements.
  • Mad Scientist: His lair and minions give off a creepy atmosphere similar to Part 1 and early Part 2 Orochimaru; the man knows the human body and conducted unethical experiments on numerous victims.
  • No-Sell: He can shrug off Amateratsu, and even kick Sasuke out of his perfect Susanoo and Naruto out of his Kyubi cloak form.
  • Magical Eye: Besides the Byakugan in his left eye, he has a unique right eye that enhances his natural abilities resembling a camera aperture.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: According to Amado, Isshiki shrunk himself and embedded himself in Jigen's brain to control him.
  • Pragmatic Villain: As smart as he is strong, Isshiki tends to approach things practically, such as trying to avoid a fight with Naruto while he attempted to retrieve Kawaki. Isshiki could have potentially destroyed him outright, but there was no value in it at the time, as he would be wasting precious time and consuming too much energy.
  • Sizeshifter: Not only is he the source of Jigen's sizeshifting abilities, he shrank himself in order to enter Jigen's ear and directly control his brain. He is capable to shrink everything that is in his sight, as long as it is inorganic, and to retrieve it when he wants it.
  • Smug Snake: Nothing fazes the guy and he's so arrogant that things will go his way, he really doesn't mind when it seems that his plans are failing.
  • Wine Is Classy: The man isn't resurrected five minutes before he summons a glass of wine to drink while standing over the broken body of his enemy, just to illustrate a point.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Despite being the adoptive father of Kawaki, this didn't stop him from transforming the boy into a weapon.

How well does it match the trope?
