Heartwarming / Boruto: Naruto the Movie

Go To

The true final movie in the Naruto franchise about the next generation of ninja has several moments that will warm your heart:

Fist bump of love between parent and child.

  • Hard to see, but if one looks closely enough at the pictures in the Uzumaki household, one can see the happiness radiating from each of the family members.
    • One of the pictures is Gaara and Naruto, after the two reached adulthood.
    • The Five Kage posing for a picture, along with Boruto and Sasuke, after their victory over Momoshiki and Kinshiki.
  • The way that Boruto lights up with happiness when it comes to ensuring his little sister's happiness and his warning against Naruto not to screw up her special day. Can't really blame Boruto for reacting with anger when Naruto blows off attending his daughter's birthday party for the sake of his job.
    • Vice-versa, Himawari's adoration towards Boruto, cheering him on in all his matches and becoming sad whenever something bad happens to her brother.
  • Himawari finding Naruto's old genin suit and Hinata smiles in nostalgia.
  • Naruto, despite his busy work-style, tries his best to aid everyone in the village with his shadow clones, even channeling Obito's spirit in helping the elderly during one scene.
  • Seeing how happy Himawari is during her birthday party and how much her parents and older brother dote on her.
  • Sarada noting how happy Sakura is due to Sasuke being back in the village. Sakura says it's the same with Sarada.

  • Konohamaru, rather than get angry at Boruto for waking him up in the middle of the night, gladly accepts Boruto's request to teach him the Rasengan.
  • Naruto worrying and reacting with happiness over Boruto's progress during the Chunin Exams. The same goes for Boruto's reactions when he receives such praise, as that was really all he wanted.
  • Sarada noting how blue Boruto's eyes are compared to his father, causing Boruto to blush. Even when arguing, these two are pretty close.
  • Hinata calling Naruto "anata" which in Japanese can mean an endearing form of the word "you" or in the case of married couples, "honey."
  • Boruto seeing how scared Sarada became in Momoshiki's presence and puts aside his own fear in order to protect her.
  • Naruto doing his best to protect the citizens of Konoha and his son from danger, even to the point of seemingly giving his life to shield the village from the impending Tailed Beast Bomb.

  • Sasuke smiling warmly a lot more often in this movie, particularly when it comes to Boruto's progress as his student. He even treats his relationship with Naruto with a lot more care and respect.
  • Just before going with everyone at the end, Boruto dons his father's old clothes and teacher's old forehead protector. The resemblance to Naruto is since that it truly surprises Hinata, but also has Sasuke, Sakura, and the others smiling with warmth and pride, including Hinata when he declares his intentions like a true shinobi.
  • In their fight with the transformed Momoshiki, Sasuke is severely burned by a Lava Style technique, and Naruto is pissed upon seeing him badly injured. He then lights up with joy when Sasuke is fully healed by Kurama's chakra.
  • Towards the end of the movie, Naruto and Boruto reconcile with each other and put the bad blood between them behind. They are able to fist bump with each other with pride.
    • Hinata and Himawari wishing the men of their family a good day at the same time, even giving them their lunches as they rush out the door.
  • Boruto mimics his father's penchant for sending shadow clones for menial tasks at the end of the movie.
  • Boruto voicing his intent to support Sarada's dream of becoming Hokage and eventually become her right hand man. Sarada blushes crimson as a result.
  • Sasuke and Sakura watching over their daughter and her team as they go on their next mission, smiling all the while.
  • Sasuke has spent all these years looking and preparing for the threat greater than Kaguya to descend on the village and they appear in the form of Momoshiki and Kinshiki. Now that they're finally dead, Sasuke can finally stop wandering and settle down in his home village with his family.
  • The final end credits, showcasing nearly every character in the series.
    • Team Konohamaru and Team 7 mirroring each other.
    • Boruto and Naruto charging into battle with their respective Rasengans.
    • Showcasing the Uzumaki and Uchiha family together.
  • A small one, but Shikamaru and Temari's reaction to Shikadai forfeiting his match against Boruto. Neither one is disappointed or angry. Shikamaru gives a small smile, while Temari laughs with a look of pride.
  • Sakura, Ino, and Temari are seen hanging out together — at a cafe shop and later at the Chunin Exams.
  • Sasuke saving Sarada from being crushed by fallen debris. Even more heartwarming when Sarada calls him "papa."
  • Boruto warning Naruto to not miss Himawari's birthday.
  • Sakura bursting with pride when Sarada wins her match in the Chunin Exams.
  • When the stadium starts collapsing, Lee carries Shikadai and stands on top of a column. The debris starts approaching Lee and Shikadai and Gaara uses his sand to block it from hitting them. Although a minor scene, it does show that Gaara does care for his nephew and friend's safety.
