Who Can Defeat Jigen in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations?

Jigen

We all know how big of a threat Jigen is. All of us must have wondered “Who can defeat Jigen?” at one point in time. So in this article, we have listed a handful of characters who can defeat Jigen. So, let’s get right into it! 
Wait! Before we take a look at the characters who can defeat Jigen, let’s understand his powers in brief!

How Strong Is Jigen in Boruto? What Are His Powers? 

  • Karma Seal: The Karma Seal is Jigen’s biggest source of power. It allows Jigen to use Isshiki’s signature ability, which allows him to shrink objects and himself. While it doesn’t work on other humans, it still is a valuable ability. The Karma Seal also grants Jigen an exceptional amount of chakra and power.
  • Scientific Tools: Like every other Kara inner, Jigen’s body has been scientifically modified as well. This grants him more versatility and freedom to attack in a battle. It also helps Jigen to remain in top physical shape; as the damaged body parts can simply be replaced.
  • Physical Strength: Jigen is quite formidable in terms of raw power. He also has high endurance when it comes to taking hits.

While Jigen has limited abilities, these abilities provide him with enough variability to win against anyone. However, Jigen’s biggest problem is his low endurance. While Jigen can take a rough beating, his body can’t handle the Karma Seal’s powers; as he’s not a perfect vessel. If Jigen goes all out by using his Karma Seal’s powers; his only hope to win is through a short, destructive fight!

With that out of the way, let’s move on to the characters who can defeat Jigen!

Who Can Defeat Jigen?

While Jigen is an almighty being, there are a few characters who can even overpower his overwhelming strength! Let’s see

Can Kaguya Otsutsuki Defeat Jigen? 

Being the progenitor of chakra, Kaguya was an easy pick. Her incomparable chakra reserves, Rinne-Sharingan, endurance and experience in battle are more than enough to convince us.
Moreover, Kaguya arrived on Earth with Isshiki, who planted the Karma seal on Jigen. Even though Isshiki was Kaguya’s superior; she did manage to almost end his life.

Although it was only possible because she caught Isshiki off-guard; remember that she had not consumed the chakra fruit back then! Prime Kaguya can put up a respectable fight against Isshiki at the very least; meaning that she can defeat Jigen. Jigen can only access Isshiki’s strength up to a certain limit; that too for a limited time. And, we’ve seen in Naruto Shippuden that nobody can beat Kaguya in long-term fights. She fought against Hagoromo and Hamura Otsutsuki for 4 months without any breaks! 

Can Hagoromo Otsutsuki Defeat Jigen?

Also known as the Sage of Six Paths, Hagoromo Otsutsuki; the eldest son of Kaguya was also a fairly easy pick. He managed to seal his mother, Kaguya with his brother Hamura after a gruelling 4-month long battle. Hagoromo’s powers are no joke; as even Hamura has admitted that Hagoromo is the strongest out of the two. Moreover, Hagoromo also became the Ten-Tails’ Jinchuriki after sealing Kaguya, meaning his chakra reserves increased exponentially.

Hagoromo Otsutsuki The Sage Of Six path

Known to have created Ninshu, Hagoromo has mastered everything about chakra, from ninjutsu to Dojutsu; as he possesses the Rinnegan and the Mangekyo Sharingan.
Again, Jigen’s lack of endurance and limited chakra reserve will be the death of him. Hagoromo can use his ocular abilities without any consequences. He could potentially see-through Jigen’s signature ability to shrink after a point in time. Moreover, he is the only person to have mastered the Rinnegan. Although he might simply overpower him!

Is Code Stronger Than Jigen?

The ever-faithful Inner of the Kara Organisation was yet another easy pick; purely due to Amado’s reveal of Code’s powers in chapter 56 of the Boruto manga! While we don’t know the details of Code’s powers yet; Amado has confirmed that Code’s powers exceed that of Jigen’s under one condition: his limiters have been removed. In fact, Code allowed Amado to put limiters on him out of respect for Isshiki!

If Code somehow manages to remove his limiters; he would gain Isshiki’s “true power” as a failed vessel, as Isshiki stated. Moreover, his physical abilities and chakra reserves would also receive a significant boost, putting him a league above Jigen. Not to forget he also possess white karma.

Is Eida Stronger Than Jigen?

Once a member of the Kara Organisation; Jigen ordered the disposal of Eida since she was a threat to his position as the leader. With the ability to make anyone fall for her, Eida can control every human, except her family members. Since her charm only works on humans, Otsutsukis are an exception to her mystical powers. Nonetheless, she can brew trouble for Jigen due to her ability to control the masses. Even though we don’t know everything about her power, she can definitely exploit Jigen’s weaknesses.

Eida Stronger than Jigen

She could control every shinobi and human alive; including Naruto, Sasuke, the Five Kages and other prominent shinobis as well!
This Allied Shinobi Force would be enough to last longer than Jigen’s limit; as his limit against Kage-level shinobis seems to be relatively low; ultimately leading to his defeat.
