Kawaki is introduced as a villain, however, his role seems to be much more complicated than that. Here are 10 Kawaki facts you may have missed.
Kawaki is one of the main characters in the Naruto sequel, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. He plays an important role in the story, similar to the role Sasuke Uchiha played in the original series. Kawaki is introduced as a villain, however, his role seems to be much more complicated than that. Here are 10 facts about Kawaki you may have missed.
Kawaki is the perfect vessel for Isshiki Otsutsuki
Kawaki is introduced as the “vessel” that the Kara organization is chasing. While it was initially unknown what purpose Kawaki would serve in the story, as the truth was gradually revealed, Kawaki would actually become a “vessel” for Isshiki Otsutsuki, who currently controls the engine. Jigen’s body.
Kawaki has lived under various roofs in his painful life up to now. Kawaki’s real father beat him up for not serving his real purpose. Later, Kawaki was brought in by Jigen for the purpose of transferring Karma to him.
After breaking free from Jigen’s grip, Kawaki was eventually captured by Naruto Uzumaki. Naruto raised him as his own child. For Kawaki, Naruto was the best father he could ask for.
Kawaki received Karma from Jigen as a ‘gift’ which, according to leader Kara, strengthened the bond between parent and child. However, that’s not all that Kawaki got from Jigen.
Kawaki’s entire body had turned into a scientific instrument. On top of that, Kawaki is also endowed with an ability that gives him the same strength as Kekkei Genkai.
Severe psychological trauma
Kawaki’s life is incredibly tragic, no matter how you look at it. From being beaten by a drunken father to being forced to take Karma and then being beaten for training, Kawaki has endured a lot.
As a result, Kawaki suffered from a severe traumatic disorder. This was confirmed by looking at Kawaki’s rough memories of the past. Thankfully, Naruto seems to have had a big influence on Kawaki and has helped him quite a bit.
Years of training under Jigen have turned Kawaki into an incredibly strong kid. Soon after being introduced, Kawaki was able to fight and defeat a Kara Outer member named Garo. Soon after, he nearly killed Konohamaru Sarutobi, a full-fledged Jonin.
Even as a child, Kawaki’s strength was greater than that of Jonin, making him a great talent, despite having not trained under Naruto. In the future, Kawaki grows strong enough to destroy Konohagakure, or at least play an important role in it.
Kawaki is able to take advantage of Karma’s powers, as seen in the Boruto manga. Basically, Karma allows him to harness the power of Otsutsuki.
According to Jigen, Kawaki has the potential to become a complete Otsutsuki. It is not known exactly what Kawaki means, but it is conceivable that Kawaki will transform into one of the family members once he is fully ready. The same can be said for Boruto Uzumaki, who is also said to have similar powers to Kawaki. Whether the two will go on to achieve this or not remains a mystery.
Kawaki’s Karma Stage
Kawaki’s Karma is known to have two phases. The first allows him to transfer Karma marks all over his body and activate some powers like absorbing Ninjutsu to release energy blasts.
However, there is also another phase of this power, Kawaki also grows horns and the Karma mark spreads more widely on his face. So far, we haven’t seen him use the power of the second stage since Kawaki doesn’t really have control over it.
Kawaki is also known to be able to use space ninjutsu, however, right now, he can only do so when synchronizing his Karma with Boruto. Since Jigen can use it without any assistance, it is likely that Kawaki will be able to access its power on his own in the future.
Roman numerals Kara
Like the core members of Kara, Kawaki also has a Roman numeral on his body. In Kawaki’s case, it’s the IX that he has under his left eye. Exactly what it means or if it has any meaning is not known.
As far as we know, Kawaki has a total of 80  strength. Kawaki’s chakra is quite low at 30, while Kawaki’s intelligence, at 130, is his strongest ability.
In addition, Kawaki has 70 points in negotiation, 66 points in perception and 66 points in ingenuity. Kawaki is also known to be exceptionally skilled in close-quarters hand-to-hand combat.
