Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga faced a lot of discredit when it began. Confronted by the colossal expectations of the fans, Boruto had a hard time proving its individuality when compared to Naruto.
However, the manga has come a long way since then with an array of interesting characters and topics. One such topic is The Ohtsutsuki Clan. They were briefly initially introduced at the end of Naruto Shippuden.
However, Boruto has taken up on its own to unravel the secrets about the mysterious alien species — the Ohtsutsuki Clan, aka the God Clan! In this post, I will share some of the recent revelations about the clan.
1. Quick Highlights
In Boruto Chapter 45, titled “Defection,” Amado explained everything Ohtsutsuki. He tells that The Ohtsutsuki are alien invaders that roam planet to planet to consume the life of that entire planet by using the “The Divine Tree” that bears the “Chakra Fruit.”
2. The Ohtsutsuki Clan
The Ohtsutsuki clan was first introduced in Naruto Shippuden, its member, Kaguya Ohtsutsuki, was the central antagonist of the Naruto finale.
According to Naruto manga, Kaguya Ohtsutsuki hailed from an unknown planet and bore two children with a human leader — Hagoromo & Hamura Ohtsutsuki.
Hagoromo Ohtsutsuki later became the “God of Shinobi” and is the ancestor of Senju, Uzumaki and Uchiha clan. Hamura Ohtsutsuki took his side of the family to the moon and is the ancestor of the Hyuga Clan.
In the Boruto series, more of the Ohtsutsuki members were introduced, such as Momoshiki Ohtsutsuki(Boruto’s karma), Kinshiki Ohtsutsuki(deceased), and the central antagonist of Boruto manga — Isshiki Ohtsutsuki(Jigen & Kawaki’s karma).
As explained by Amado, the Ohtsutsuki clan members roam planet to planet in their quest for sucking its life energy via the divine tree, and the fruit it bears.
What is Krama?
Karma seals are bestowed by the members of the Otsutsuki Clan to mark certain shinobis as their vessels. They are intended to serve as vessels for possession by the Otsutsuki chakra and if the experiment is deemed successful, it results in a “perfect Otsutsuki” for the clan member.
3. What is the Divine Tree & Chakra Fruit?
In chapter 45, Amado goes to explain the entire process of the Ohtsutsuki invasion. I will lay out the same for you.
Firstly, the Ohtsutsuki clan members are alien parasites(figuratively), who use the divine tree to suck a planet’s energy.
The Divine Tree is the massive tree that we saw at the end of the Naruto Shippuden. It spreads its roots in-depth intro to the planet’s core. It puts its residents into eternal slumber — the Infinite Tsukuyomi.
While they are in a deep sleep, the Divine tree sucks on their life energy to grow itself. After sucking the life energy of everything on the planet, it bears the Chakra Fruit.
The Chakra Fruit
The Chakra Fruit is the fruit that grows out of a Divine Tree and possesses the chakra aggregate of the entire planet.
It is created and consumed by the Ohtsutsuki clan to grow in strength.
They are the firm believers that he who possesses more chakra is stronger — as seen by Momoshiki mocking Naruto about Jutsu and other skills — a theory that was proven wrong when Naruto, Sasuke & Boruto defeated Momoshiki.
4. The Seedling & Ten Tails – Divine Tree’s Origin
The question that had been on our minds since Naruto Shippuden is the origins of the Ten Tails. Unfortunately, for you guys, the origins of this beast remain unexplained.
The one thing he does tell is that the Ten Tails acts as the Seedling that grows into the Divine Tree.
