I have followed Naruto since he was a mere child and seen him grow up to become one of the greatest ninja’s alive.
In fact, the reason why I have an emotional attachment to Naruto, Sasuke, and other characters is because it feels as if they are growing up alongside me.
From sitting in front of the television when I was seven and watching him try his best to turning 17 and seeing him fulfill his long-desired dream, Naruto is as much a part of my life as anything else.
Perhaps, even more. I’m sure that my experience is universal, and one reason for the series’ popularity.
With the release of Boruto, we have one more chance to see these characters live their lives and follow their children as they forge their own story.
However, time stops for no one, as even those who saved the world need to age. How old are they now? Let’s calculate!
1. How old is Naruto in Boruto?
Naruto was an infant when the demon fox was sealed within him, and flash forward to when he saved the entire world at just the age of 17.
He defeated Pain, Madara, Kaguya and, along with Sasuke, went on to become a legendary ninja that not only Konohagakure, but every village and ninja respected.
Uzumaki Naruto was 15 years old when the Shippuden began and 17 years during the 4th Shinobi War. He fathered Boruto at 21 and became the Hokage at 24-25 years of age. Factoring in Boruto’s age (12), Naruto is 32-33 years old in Boruto in 2020.
I. Does Naruto Die in Boruto?
After following Naruto’s journey, many fans still cling to the belief that Naruto is the main character and that he will always come out on top.
However, the reality is that Naruto is no longer the main character. Even though he is extremely powerful, he is not invincible.
Naruto has not died in Boruto yet. However, going from Kawaki’s statement in the beginning that he will send Boruto to the same place he sent Naruto, the chances of him being alive by the end have reduced quite a lot.
2. How old is Kakashi in Boruto?
Kakashi has been a sort of father figure to the original team seven and mentored them every step of their teenage years.
When Naruto was merely 12, Kakashi was renowned as a genius and excellent ninja, and by the time he was 32, he had already been named the Hokage.
While still a great ninja, he is past his prime now, like the Sannin were at the beginning of the series, and unlike Tsunade, he does not have the option to revert his appearance to his younger years.
Kakashi was 14 years older than team seven, which makes him 31 during the Fourth Shinobi War, and around 36 when Boruto was born. The latter is 12 right now, making Kakashi 48 years old in the Boruto series, and 2020.
I. Does Kakashi Die in Boruto?
Kakashi has not died in Boruto. However, as the series progresses, there’s a high chance that he may either sacrifice himself to protect the younger generation.
He may also become the Hokage again due to something unfortunate happening to Naruto, thus drawing parallels between him and the Third Hokage.
3. How old is Sasuke in Boruto?
Through many years, fans have followed Sasuke and have seen him mature from a revengeful boy to a powerful shinobi who saved the world alongside Naruto at the mere age of 17.
Uchiha Sasuke was 15 years old when the Shippuden began and 17 years during the 4th Shinobi War. He fathered Sarada at 21, by factoring in Sarada’s age (12), Sasuke is 32-33 years old in Boruto anime as of 2020.
I. Does Sasuke Die in Boruto?
Sasuke has not died in Boruto yet. The very first scene in the series shows Boruto wearing his mentor’s Headband, cloak, and even holding his sword.
It looks as if Sasuke has passed down his things to Boruto, which increases the chance of Sasuke dying as the series goes on.
