Does Sasuke Die in ‘Boruto’? Here’s What Happens to Him

does sasuke die in boruto

Sasuke Uchiha is one of the three protagonists of the Naruto franchise and is one of Masashi Kishimoto’s best characters. Sasuke’s story is a central part of the Naruto series. While his role became smaller in Boruto, which is focused on Boruto and Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada, he is still an exceptionally important character in the series as a whole. Now, we all know that Sasuke survived the events of Naruto, but what about Boruto? Does Sasuke die in Boruto? Well, in this article, we will explain everything about Sasuke’s fate in Boruto.

  • Article Breakdown:
  • Sasuke Uchiha survived the events of Naruto and was redeemed for his past crimes, becoming a loyal Konoha shinobi and one of its strongest fighters. He married Sakura, and the two have a daughter, Sarada.
  • In Boruto, he goes on several standalone missions in the series and eventually becomes Boruto’s mentor, helping him in several fights throughout the series.
  • After Kawaki executed his plan, Sasuke escaped with Boruto and taught him during the time skip, but was ultimately labeled as a criminal in Konoha for helping Boruto, who is now considered a criminal in the series.

No, Sasuke does not die in Boruto

Sasuke Uchiha’s story in Naruto is well-known, so we will not repeat the whole story here, as the focus will be the story presented in Boruto. In short, Sasuke left Konoha while trying to search for his brother so he could kill him for killing their parents and their whole clan; Orochimaru manipulated him for a while and ultimately became a villain before Naruto defeated him and returned him to Konoha. He atoned for his sins and was pardoned by the people of Konoha, becoming a loyal shinobi at that point.

Thirteen years later, Sasuke is in a relationship with Sakura Haruno and has a daughter named Sarada Uchiha, who will become one of the protagonists of Boruto. However, she last saw him as a small child because he constantly traveled. He’s still trying to find answers and atone for his sins. Later, though, he is more often present in the series and will ultimately become a mentor to Boruto, who also had issues with Naruto being too busy for him all the time, thus showing some similar personality traits similar to younger Sasuke.

Sasuke did a lot to help Boruto evolve as a character, so he was more than just a teacher. He was a mentor in more than one sense of the word. Sasuke also participated in several battles in Boruto and since he has become a less important character now, many fans wondered whether he died in Boruto or whether he will die in the future. Also, if you go on YouTube, you will find several animations of both Naruto’s and Sasuke’s deaths, which, more or less, look okay. Sure, they’re obvious fakes, but they look fine if you compare them with the original.


Why Is Boruto Wearing Sasuke’s Headband & How Did He Get It?

So, what does this tell us? Well, first of all, we can confirm that Sasuke is not dead in Boruto. The scenes you’ll find online are fake, and Sasuke is, as far as we know, still alive. Yes, even in TWO BLUE VORTEX; he hasn’t appeared yet, but as far as we know, he is still alive and is being treated as a criminal in Konoha because he helped Boruto (he does not remember Boruto, but Sarada does, and she persuaded her father to help him), which is why he was forced into hiding yet again.

Will he die in the future? Well, this doesn’t seem likely at this point. Sasuke is too important. He is one of the pillars of the franchise, and since a lot of fans don’t even consider Boruto to be a proper sequel (the series is fine, but it’s nowhere near Naruto), killing off such an important character in a work that numerous fans have already rejected would lead to even more backlash. We’re certain that most fans would simply disregard this. Knowing Kishimoto, he wouldn’t do such a thing.

Also, Sasuke is not that important for the plot of Boruto to die, which is quite ironic, but being as important as he is, for his death to matter, he would have to play a bigger role in Boruto. Since he does not, killing him off would just be rude, and Kishimoto does not seem like an author who would do that.
