Naruto and Sasuke vs. Momoshiki: Who won?
In the anime, Urashiki showed up and informed Momoshiki and Kinshiki about Kaguya’s fate, apparently having an attraction to a planet dweller, creating biological weapons, having children and being sealed by them, something considered a betrayal of the clan. Momoshiki stated that the lesser beings on the planet deserved praise for dealing with her.
Dissatisfied with the amount of chakra, Kinshiki informed him that he detected a larger chakra source, so they decide to go for it. As they flew to Konohagakure, Kinshiki commented that he could feel multiple large chakras gathering together, Momoshiki affirmed this by stating that he could see it, using his Byakugan to see the large Chakra within Naruto.
Suddenly, Momoshiki and Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki appeared and started attacking the arena where the exams had been taking place. Naruto was knocked out of the arena by Momoshiki but he rushed to defend his son when he was in danger and was soon joined by Sasuke and Sarada. Sasuke informed Naruto that the two enemies were the new threat that was hinted at in the scroll.
Naruto realized he was their target and demanded to know what they wanted from him. After Momoshiki revealed he wanted Kaguya’s chakra and possibly Kurama’s chakra from the Seventh Hokage, Naruto and Sasuke combined Kurama and the Susanō to protect themselves and their children from enemy attacks. Naruto also sent clones to protect the civilians who failed to flee the arena.
Determined to protect his son and his friends, Naruto finally decided to allow himself to be captured by Momoshiki’s jutsu and asked Sasuke to take care of Boruto for him. Just before disappearing, Naruto looked over his shoulder and smiled at his son. Naruto was then teleported to another dimension and bound by Momoshiki and Kinshiki to a Divine Tree.
Naruto resisted as Momoshiki extracted half of Kurama’s chakra from inside Naruto. The two debated the merits of instant strength and gained strength, leading Naruto to realize his own lack of effort in trying to understand Boruto, causing him to cheat with the shinobi gauntlet. Sasuke, Boruto and the other Kage arrived to save him.
Naruto, surprised to see Boruto wearing his old jacket, told his son that he felt like he was looking at one of his own clones. When he attempted to apologize to Boruto for not being there for him, Boruto replied that it was no big deal and he just wanted to know more about Naruto’s past.
After the other Kage failed to defeat Kinshiki and the latter was absorbed by Momoshiki, Naruto and Sasuke joined forces to fight him and initially gained the upper hand until Naruto was briefly imprisoned by rocks and Sasuke being severely burned by Momoshiki’s Yoton. Naruto became enraged seeing Sasuke injured but was relieved to find that he was fine and still able to fight after being healed by Kurama’s chakra.
Combining Kurama and Susanō again, they were able to defeat Momoshiki and slice his lava creature in half, but Katasuke rushed in and began firing ninjutsu attacks from his Shinobi Gauntlet at Momoshiki, which he absorbed and used to attack Naruto and the others. Naruto was restrained by black sticks as Momoshiki prepared to take out the rest of the Kage.
When Boruto used his Vanishing Rasengan against Momoshiki to free his father and the other Kage, Naruto was very surprised to see that his son was able to use the Rasengan. As they prepared for the final assault, Naruto helped Boruto create a Parent and Child Rasengan, which Boruto himself threw at Momoshiki and eventually killed him.
After the battle was over, Naruto sat down with Sasuke and the Hokage agreed that Sasuke had won their bet. Naruto proudly looked at his son and declared that he would always be there to watch him grow. Back home, Naruto posed for a photo with Boruto, Sasuke, and the other four Kage. One morning, as Boruto was leaving to join his team members and Naruto was leaving for work, both of them wished each other to do their best and made a fist to fist. As Boruto gave a talk to a reporter live on Konoha TV, Naruto watched her from his office.
