No, Naruto and Sasuke haven’t gotten weaker. Their opponents have gotten beyond their level.

Tell me about it, they use 5% of their arsenal and get smacked like rag dolls. At least show us more for fuck sake. I want to see Naruto throwing bijuu-natured rasengans left and right, I want to see Sasuke using chibaku tensei and his susanoo. I want to see Sasuke use Kirin because it’s not a fucking jutsu and can’t be absorbed. I want to see some sort of actual effort using everything they have before Naruto discovers Baryon mode.
Its a last resort but have they tried using anything more than their basic jutsu from when they were 12? Sasuke can use almighty push and decides to let Boruto fucking lift rocks like, mate, please.
The Truth Seeker Orbs are actually gone. Naruto progressively lost them over the course of the war. He used three of them to seal one of Madara's limbo clones. Then he used one as platform for Sasuke in Kaguya's lava dimension, but it later got stuck there after she transported them elsewhere. Finally, he used up two more to pin down Black Zetzu. We know he doesn't retrieve any of them since he visibly only has three left by the time he fights Sasuke. Those three are never seen again after that so it can be assumed that they were destroyed in the explosion from their strongest attacks.
truthseeker orbs? destroyed? those are like, the strongest things in existence aren't they? and they're not even solids, they can be shaped into anything. guy broke madara's truthseeker shield, obito's truthseeker shield cracked, etc etc and they just reformed it, what?
yeah, I think they just created that "absorb jutstu" ability just to stop making giant kaijuu battles happen cause that was indeed ruining power scaling, but now it creates a new fucking problem. taijutsu is basically the only way to fight them, and that just kinda ruins everything cause even the taijutsu should be breaking mountains and stuff but nah it just knocks them back a few feet. all the blows feel so empty.
also also, the BIGGEST, **BIGGEST**, fucking problem with boruto is that it's not Boruto. It's still Naruto and Sasuke. Boruto: Naruto next generations? More like Naruto: Naruto next generations. what the fuck does boruto even do? what do ANY of the new characters even do? What do any of the OLD characters do? absolutely nothing. This is the problem with sequels where the strongest characters characters of the old series are still part of the core cast. it just throws everything out of balance. This is one of the reasons why I don't like My hero academia either. The adults just take care of too much shit. The main character should play a vital role in the fights and plot, and that doesn't mean just the finishing blow. They need to pull their own weight, but they don't. Naruto and Sasuke always take care of everything, with boruto doing the bare minimum cause he's the main character.
and sure, maybe boruto did alright against boro, but even then, that's naruto, sasuke, and 4 more relevant characters. out of the hundreds of other characters, none of them are relevant. none of the other kage, not rock lee, who supposedely is the strongest taijutsu user now, nobody. How do you expect some genin/chunin level ninja to properly get stronger when they're basically always fighting gods that are stronger than naruto and sasuke?
not disagreeing with any of your points, but I did kinda go off on a tangent, my bad.
Nah, if anything, they got stronger in Boruto. Notice how they were barely able to beat kaguya, but in Boruto they was completely stomping momoshiki ( who's stronger than kaguya ). They have more experience and more time to master their abilities. Naruto's bayron mode is a prime example of this. Naruto has a whole other half of the 9 tails, so dude has even more chakra now. And Sasuke has had time to master his Rinnegan. So if anything they'd grown stronger since the last and Shippuden.
Yea but actually the problem at least for me is simple but decisive its not that they are nerfed more like dumbed down to a fine point. Example Sasuke having a rinnegan is pointless beside teleportation. He never uses other paths when it counts . Example he would let naruto tank momo ultra attack that could wipe the village when he can not only absorb this ninjustu barrage but would get revitalized from absorbing. Hell he sees someone about to get hit he teleports into it when he literally has the power to control polarities and either push or pull them physically from that danger. Summoning any creature. Stealing souls. Even raise the dead with a hades summon or heal all wounds of teammates with the hades summon but no he just teleports only. Isshiki weakness is he cant manipulate organic beings or people and only one time does he use the transformation justu to catch isshiki of guard never again. Seriously the fact they fail to actually use their actual and entire tool kit at many times make me wonder why give them powers or titles in the first place. Like naruto having the ability to use all the other tailed beasts power and communicate with them but he only ever fights using kurama alone which is cool but you would think the rest of the beast would want to help as if isshiki wins they dead too but whatever i still like the series boruto but man it feels weird to see them not use a actual solution or other plans like genjustu sage mode .
Naruto: I am basically shinobi jesus, and have the ability to use every chakra nature as well as some kekkai genkai, and have mastered thousands of jutsu
Also Naruto: OH NO, SHADOW CLONES AND RASENGAN DON'T WORK, WHAT DO I DO???
They did get weaker naruto lost kuruma and Sasuke lost the rinnegan
some people here didn't read the Boruto manga and the post isn't spoiler tagged
Everyone is talking about before that though.
Ohhh then nah they were never weaker
Fr though, a lot of people who make left field complaints didn’t pay attention. Multiple Shinobis have said, I people will only get stronger w each generation. And it’s true.
And? That’s still stronger. Did you miss the part when it was said by Kishimoto himself and in the show again, multiple times that each generation will surpass the last.
Again, DOESNT mean EVERY SINGLE PERSON has to surpass. It’s literally cannon. I’m not saying this is what I believe, ITS LITERALLY CANNON and stated by kishimoto and in both the anime and mangas of Naruto. Just stating facts so chill.
Exactly! And yes it still does because the new strong shinobis STILL surpassed the old ones. Regardless, it’s FUCKING CANNON. Idky you’re trying to argue w me over a fact that the creator himself has stated over and over.
Omg dude. Have you ever thought that maybe they haven’t reached their potential yet? Growth is thing you know? It’s a pointless argument to have when it’s literally cannon. Go argue w Kishimoto if you’re so butthurt by it. I just said what has been told to us for years. Again doesn’t mean every single person in the new Gen will be stronger, doesn’t mean every single person will be immediately strong because that’s not realistic anyway. It’s just cannon. Stop trying to argue with something that is literally set in stone, it’s redundant 👋🏼
that's some bullshit he came up with. It's obvious just looking at the history and lore kishimoto has written that the generations have only gotten weaker. the only reason this generation is so strong is because of the incarnatations, as well as it's the generation of the main character. furthermore, when we say "stronger" it refers to 2 characters, and nobody else.
And? Still cannon from Kishimoto, don’t get mad me for speaking the truth. Take it up with him. He never said EVERYONE from the next Gen has to be stronger, just as a whole the new Gen will surpass the past, cannon. Again, stop arguing over something that is written in stone. Pointless argument
