Boruto Uzumaki (うずまきボルト, Uzumaki Boruto) is a shinobi from Konohagakure's Uzumaki clan, as well as a descendant of the Hyūga clan. He is also a member of Team Konohamaru. Ever since his father, Naruto Uzumaki, became Hokage, Boruto had been resentful towards him for never having enough time for him and his family, causing him to act out indignantly. He also had a tendency to take short-cuts as a ninja rather than depending on his own strength. However, after training under Sasuke Uchiha and battling Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki with his father and teacher, Boruto eventually comes to respect his father and the role he has as Hokage, but nonetheless vows to go down a different path than Naruto and become a ninja like Sasuke instead.

Weaknesses: None notable
- Rasengan: A sphere of chakra energy that can create a large explosion and damage the inside of a target. Needs to close to melee range to use it. Boruto's Rasengan is noted to initially be much smaller, however. As a trade-off of this, he unconsciously applies wind-natured chakra to his Rasengan, enabling him to hurl it across distances. Although the Rasengan itself only remains stable for a certain distance, the wind itself continues on its course unseen, inflicting comparable damage when it finally makes contact. Boruto eventually becomes able to create a normal-sized Rasengan after more training.
- Kage Bunshin no Jutsu (Shadow Clone Technique): Boruto creates tangible “shadow clones” that can fight and use his techniques, but disappear after one strong hit.
- Gentle Fist: Due to his heritage Hyūga by his mother, Boruto can use the characteristic style of Taijutsu of this clan, the Gentle Fist Fighting Style that is based on damage to the inner chakra system or organs fighter with just a touch of the user's fingers.
