The anime hype train has been boosted by Episode 198 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime! Boruto fans have been hypeing up the series ever since the Kawaki arc began. This is a valid reason! After ending on a cliffhanger, the latest episode served as a nitro booster. This left anime-only fans with only one question: Is Delta stronger than Naruto.
After answering the question in depth, we’ll also give a brief overview of the context of the fight for Boruto fans that might have missed some details. Let’s just get to it, without further delay!
Notice: This article contains major spoilers of the manga. Please read it at your own risk!
Who is Delta in Boruto
Delta is one the Kara inner members. She is strong, it goes without saying. Kashin Koji urged her to enter Konoha, but she was unable to do so because her chakra wasn’t in Konoha’s database. She became frustrated that Koji wouldn’t bring Kawaki home immediately. Delta refused to accept this, so she entered Konoha to kill Naruto and take Kawaki home.
You can see that she is confident and cocky. Is she as strong as Naruto? Let’s see!
Is Delta stronger than Naruto?
The simple answer is no. She is certainly strong but she can’t hold her own against the most powerful shinobi.
“Oh, but just look at the way she’s giving Naruto so much trouble! Kawaki had no choice but to protect him He was nerfed !”. Well, you’re wrong.
Let’s first look at how the fight ended. Then let’s examine Delta’s abilities and form our opinions!
What are the powers of Delta in Boruto
A Cyborg. Delta is extremely strong. Amado has scientifically altered her body to make it a cyborg. These modifications make her very similar to Kawaki. She can transform any part of her body into a weapon she chooses.
Taijutsu She’s also an expert at Taijutsu and can hold her own against Naruto. Because she is strong and agile, the Hokage could not let her down.
Drone A drone is also connected to her consciousness. This gives her an eagle’s eye view of battle. This was a big help in her battle against Naruto. She used the drone to find the Seventh Hokage, and other targets. She can also store all her information so that she can change her body and carry on living.
Ninjutsu absorption As if that wasn’t enough, her eyes can absorb ninjutsu! Amado gave Delta eyes that were similar to those of the Otsuki clan dojutsu. This allowed her to absorb chakra. These eyes allowed her to absorb Naruto and Boruto’s Rasengan, as we saw in episode198.
Her eyes also have limitations as they store the absorbed Charka in Delta’s body.
Destructive beam: Let’s finally talk about her last power, the “destructive beam”. This attack allows Delta the ability to unleash a super-powered beam that is powerful enough to defeat even the most powerful regenerative abilities. As this attack permanently damages Naruto, it is her only chance against him. To use this beam, you will need a lot chakra so Delta uses the chakra she has absorbed. This is very similar to the way Otsukis used fight.
You should now be able to see that Naruto is too strong for Delta. The fight between the two seems close for one reason: the children and village. Naruto and Delta are fighting in the village. Kawaki and Boruto are too close for Naruto’s to fight.
Naruto’s strength is such that he was able to control the fight throughout.
Kawaki also picked up on this, and you will recall him telling Boruto about how the Hokage was holding back to protect his children as well as the village.
However, love and war are two sides of the same coin, so anything is possible. This is exactly how Delta stands against Naruto. She also knows this! To make sure her attack hits Naruto, she uses Himawari to bait him, but Kawaki saved the day! You’re probably wondering what happens next. Who wins the battle? It’s clear who will win. We will still shout it loud.
Who wins Naruto or Delta?
Naruto was furious at Delta’s actions, as you might expect. He told her not to touch his children and she did. Naruto became furious and decided to show the Hokage what he is made of! His Giant Rasengan completely defeated her, to the point where her destructive beam and ninjutsu absorb abilities stopped working. To protect Kara’s valuable information, she decides to self-destruct. Although she did live to see another day, her drone transferred her data to a new body. However, her life was short lived. This is what gives Naruto a clear win.
We said it before, she was strong enough to support Naruto after signing hundreds upon hundreds of papers in his office. Although Delta might have been too much for most shinobis to handle, Naruto is a completely new being. He is a monster as Delta herself stated. The village and his children were the only reason that Delta survived so long. The fight would have lasted only 5 seconds if Naruto had fought her the same way he fought Momoshiki Oksutsuki.
What are your thoughts? Is this too much for Naruto or understandable? Are you still convinced that Delta is stronger than Naruto, or any other Kages of the planet? Comment below to let us know your thoughts!
