Warning: This article contains SPOILERS for Boruto: Two Blue Vortex #2One of the open secrets of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex Boruto saga is that Konoha Village will be destroyed, based on the flash-forward presented in the first chapter of the series. Considering how its ruins were introduced to fans, specifically as a backdrop for the confrontation between Boruto and Kawaki, it is assumed that it fell victim to their fight or due to its actions. Kawaki’s misjudgment. However, the second chapter of Boruto: Two Blue Vortex offers a more plausible explanation for its destruction, focusing on the violent chaos brought about by the Ten-Tails.
In Boruto: Two Blue Vortex chapter #2, Boruto returned to Konoha after three years to defend the village from an attack by Code and his army of beasts known as Claw Grime. Code created them in Boruto Chapter #72, using his Claw Seal technique to sever pieces of the Ten-Tails that Isshiki Otsutsuki had long hidden in another dimension. Once cut from the Ten-Tails, the pieces transform into smaller humanoids. Code also upgrades their abilities by giving them a refined version of his Claw Mark ability, allowing them to teleport through each other. However, it seems Boruto knows something about the Ten-Tails that even Code overlooked. As he orders Code to retreat with his Claw Grimes, he adds “do it now as long as you can still control them”.
By releasing the claw dirt, the cryptid is playing with fire
As recounted in Naruto, during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, even skilled and experienced shinobi like Madara and Obito had difficulty controlling the Ten-Tails. Code clearly believes that letting Claw Grimes loose on Konoha will give him a tactical advantage. He also gloats to Boruto that he has these thousands of soldiers prepared, but it seems that Boruto’s most obscure villain has made another mistake. As Boruto mentioned in this chapter, using the Ten-Tails is an extremely risky endeavor. The creature is driven by a desire to eat Otsutsuki, and Claw Grimes will bite everyone around him until they find out. However, Boruto said that while this usually happens, Code’s Ten-Tails spawning was different due to the fact that he enhanced them.
Boruto’s understanding of the Ten-Tails certainly came from something that happened during the three year skip, perhaps from the research and discoveries he made with his mentor and now shinobi scam, Sasuke. In fact, Boruto even tells Code that he doesn’t understand “the true horror of the Ten-Tails,” meaning he knows something that the villains ignore. However, Boruto’s most interesting (and ominous) line in this chapter is when he orders Code to eliminate Claw Grimes, “otherwise, we will have the worst possible future for everyone.” People”. It’s hard not to see this as a reference to the apocalyptic vision of a destroyed Konoha seen in the famous flash-forward that opens Boruto.
The destruction of Konoha was inevitable
Fans largely believe that the destruction of Konoha will be the result of the feud between Boruto and Kawaki, and Kawaki’s betrayal at the end of Boruto season 1 seems to confirm this theory. However, now it looks like Code will mess with the Ten-Tails to cause that ominous future. Obviously, Boruto’s main purpose in coming to Konoha Village is not simply to save the village and his friends but to force Code to take him to the location where the Ten-Tails is hiding. This makes it more likely that the destruction of Konoha seen in the Boruto prologue will be largely due to Code’s Claw Grimes (or possibly Ten Tails himself) rather than the fight between Kawaki And Boruto.
