The community was quick to discuss the details of chapter 64 and how it could affect the course and direction of the plot.

Possible death in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Some Boruto fans have access to spoilers and have discussed the details of the upcoming chapter that could alter or affect the plot’s direction of progression. The first and obvious detail that has raised fans’ eyebrows is that Shikamaru is on the cover page.

Some Boruto content creators believe that Shikamaru might die while rescuing Boruto in a fight against Code.

Boruto can use Momoshiki’s powers without letting Momoshiki take over his consciousness. Ada warned Code not to waste time during that fight because she knew that Boruto’s reinforcements were arriving soon.

This was where fans were shocked when Naruto used two shadow clones to harvest Sage Mode chakra. This confirms Naruto’s massive chakra reserves despite the sad demise of the nine-tailed beast, Kurama.


At this point in the manga, Shikamaru refuses Naruto to go alone and help his son. Shikamaru joins Naruto to rescue Boruto, and the fight between them and Code might lead to Shikamaru’s death.

Some theories suggest that Naruto would die and not Shikamaru. Hinata offers to join Naruto and help their son, but the Hokage politely refuses as he wants Himawari and Boruto to have at least one parent to take care of them should something go wrong.

If Naruto took this decision, he is aware of the dangers and could die in an attempt to save his son. These are some of the fan theories suggesting that Shikamaru or Naruto might die in an effort to save Boruto from Code.
