- Alternatively: Mitsuki will hesitate to kill, even when it might save the lives of many innocents in the long run. He may be the son of a literal supervillain, but Mitsuki's shown a lot more empathy than one would expect.
- Jossed. In Episode 5, during a sparring match, Mitsuki took Iwabe's demand that the former don't hold back way too seriously and would've killed him had Boruto not intervened. And in Episode 6, when a possessed Shino was trying to kill Mitsuki, Boruto and Shikadai, Mitsuki suggested killing him, believing that there was no other way to stop him and reasoning that if Shino was willing to kill them, they should be willing to kill Shino.
- Or maybe he'll kill someone without a second thought, only to regret it almost immediately.
- I would actually like to see how Orochimaru himself would react to any of those situations, considering how he seems to have become less evil and more neutral. He also seems to genuinely care for Mitsuki and wants him to become a better person than he ended up being. In the former WMG, he might be disappointed in Mitsuki and/or maybe even worried at the implication that merely being related to a villain makes him more likely to pull a FaceHeel Turn. In the latter two WMG, he might be proud of Mitsuki for being more empathetic than him and take solace in the fact that he's the one good thing he's ever created.
- Well, as mentioned above, Mitsuki almost killed Iwabe in Episode 5 and suggested killing Shino in Episode 6. So he certainly isn't hesitant to kill, thus Jossing the second WMG. But seeing as how he hasn't actually killed anyone yet, the first and third WMG aren't confirmed or Jossed.
- Possibly confirmed by the first chapter itself with Naruto.
- Jossed. Boruto already has the eye (which isn't the Byakugan) as a child.
- Considering he was anime only, no.
- Kishimoto actually supervises both the manga and the anime, so this is still a possibility, and therefore neither Confirmed nor Jossed at this point.
- Confirmed in the anime. It's Urashiki that will be appearing in the anime version of the movie recap. The legend says he was cut from the movie due to time issues.
- Alternatively: the trio will just be compared to the Sannin. For better or worse, considering what happened with Orochimaru.
This is probably going to sound really cheesy, but unless getting killed (twice!) didn't teach Orochimaru a lesson after all (which admittedly is pretty likely), I see no other reason why he would create Mitsuki. After seeing how hard Sasuke fought to protect Konoha in Itachi's name despite going through Sanity Slippage, Orochimaru wanted to see if he himself was still capable of genuinely caring for others. So, just like Justine, he conducted an experiment: create a child and raise him/her to be a good person. First, he created the first "Mitsuki" (Log) as a test to see how to properly create a synthetic human being (and judging by the meaning of the name "Mitsuki", use as his next host). When he turned out to be a success, Orochimaru created our Mitsuki and ensured he was capable of making his own decisions. Once everything was said and done, he sent his son to live in Konoha; the best place to learn to be a true shinobi.
- Semi-confirmed in Episode 35. He is uncharacteristically benevolent when he visits Konohagakure. However, he has yet to be introduced to Boruto.
- Confirmed in Chapter 15.
Similar to his father Orochimarus obsession with Sasuke, Mitsuki will value his friendship with Boruto so much that hell become a borderline Yandere trying to do whatever it takes to protect him and do what he believes will make him happy. Bonus points if Orochimaru himself calls him out on this, claiming, from experience, that following this path of obsession will only lead to death, failure, and sorrow.
- Sakura being an experient medic would never risk her unborn child travelling through dimensions lacking basic sanitary conditions and health services.
- Sasuke would never risk having his wife and unborn child getting caught in a fight against members of Kaguya's race.
- Sasuke can teleport across time and space, there is no reason for Sakura to deliver a child in an Orochimaru hideout when he could take her directly to Konoha.
- Sakura never mentioned her midwife to Sarada even though Karin and Sakura are supposedly friends.
- Sakura can remember how much her first date with Sasuke lasted but can't remember if Sasuke wore glasses or answer if they kissed.
- Sakura has no pictures from marrying Sasuke or even dating him despite keeping several pictures of Sarada and even a copy from Taka's photo.
- Karin kept Sarada's umbilical cord even thought Japanese tradition has the mother taking it home with her.
- Neither side of Sarada's stated lineage ever wore glasses and while it could be a random mutation or optical nerve damage from disease (which would have placed her on an ITU in coma rather than her bedroom) she displays not just physical traits but also behaviours similar to Karin despite never meeting her.
- There were no flashbacks confirming what Karin said was true which has always been the norm in the series when revealing the past.
Unless the anime releases additional content jossing the above, it's very likely that Sarada's true origins remain hidden and her Gaiden just established this plot threat for the future like how Kakashi Gaiden introduced Obito without revealing his importance.
- Jossed as in addition to both official and unofficial information against this theory, in Anime Episode 73, Sarada and Karin have met face to face; there was no emotional display from Karin that hinted of her being Sarada's biological mother, Sarada also addressed her formally as Karin-san and she didn't have the reaction you would expect her to have if she met her alleged real mother. And if that wasn't enough, in Episode 101 Sarada and Karin have a talk together alone in which Karin explicitly confirms not being related to Sarada.
- Jossed. Kawaki is not a clone but a cyborg modified with ninja tech. His flashback in the manga shows he used to be a normal child with a drunken father.
