Jougan, the dojutsu that Boruto possesses has always been a mystery. We know a bit about its abilities, and even less about its origination. However, this might’ve changed since Chapter 55 of the manga, as Isshiki might’ve foreshadowed while talking to Code before “dying”.
In chapter 55, Isshiki’s spirit appeared out of Code’s “White Karma” and ordered him to inherit his will and become the “Otsutsuki God”.
In the panel shown alongside Isshiki’s words, we see a huge figure with three eyes and countless eyes surrounding it. To become this god, one must devour multiple divine fruits to keep on evolving. While the art for this panel was amazing, what caught the attention of the fans was the insane number of eyes that this panel had.
Many fans are speculating that this “eye” is the Jougan, which Boruto possesses. It could be a feature that is unique to the Otsutsuki God, which is why it is referred to as the pure eye.
It is possible that the eyes shown could very well be Jougan, but we can’t say anything for sure as of right now, since we have little to zero information about the dojutsu. However, if the speculation turns out to be true, then Boruto surely is in possession of a dojustsu that is apparently super powerful.
But the, this makes the question of how Boruto inherited this dojutsu even more important.
Boruto’s strong lineage could be the key to him having the Jougan. His mother Hinata Hyuga is a direct descendant of Hamura Ohtsutsuki and received his chakra in Naruto: The Last Movie. Naruto, his father is a reincarnation of Ashura Ohtsutsuki. He also received chakra from Hagoromo Ohtsutsuki and has chakra of all the tailed beasts inside him.
The two might’ve passed their strongest genes over to Boruto, providing him with the potential to awaken the Jougan. Obviously, if the chakra types did get passed down to him and merge, then he currently is in possession of Kaguya’s chakra type, who was an Otsutsuki.
This brings us to the question of how strong the Jougan can be? It has all the potential to be a plot armor if not handled properly.
When Toneri Otsutsuki helped Boruto awaken the dojutsu, he stated that Boruto will need to use it in the future to survive and also he has the potential to become the pinnacle of power in the future. Even Momoshiki has shown his distaste towards the eye, implying how strong it can be.
This is enough to understand that Jougan is as strong as a Byakugan, Sharingan or the Rinnegan at the very least. However, only time will tell just what its true potential is.
It will be interesting to see how things turn out if the Jougan is as strong as we speculate it to be since Code or even Momoshiki might try to steal or destroy it.
With that said, what do you think about the “Otsutsuki God” and Jougan? Do you think that Code can become the “Otsutsuki God?” Or will Boruto become the pinnacle of power? Let us know in the comments below!
