Naruto Might Be Able To Use Wood Style, Here’s Why

Can Naruto Use Wood Style

Wood Style is one of the strongest Kekke Genkai in the Naruto universe, and what we know about his Jutsu is that it can’t be used by many. Naruto has developed his technique over the years, after building his strength and stamina he went on to develop his own Jutsu. Something that started, and was inspired by his father Minato – it was the Rasengan. He was taught the essentials of how to create the chakra-filled ball by Jiraiya. The next important point of Naruto’s training was the Chakra control arc, and this was where he was taught by Killer B, how to control the chakra of a Tailed Beast. The question that has come up is after we’ve seen many amazing abilities that Naruto mastered, does he have the potential to use the wood-style Kekke Genkai? So let’s take a look, can Naruto use Wood Style?

  • Article Breakdown:
  • We have never seen Naruto use the Wood Style technique, but theoretically, he could.
  • After his final fight with Sasuke, he lost his arm, and it was repaired later with Hashirama Senju’s cells.
  • From the users that we have seen this was one of the main requirements to use Wood Style Jutsu.

Can Naruto use Wood Style?

One of the things that many Naruto fans like is the fact that you can watch the characters grow over a long period of time. Naruto’s growth especially, we followed him since he was a young boy, and over many episodes, he’s learned so much. His strong drive and motivation to never give up was something that helped him on his path to becoming one of the strongest characters in the universe.

The first Jutsu he learned was the forbidden Shadow Clone Jutsu, and that was because he stole the forbidden scroll from which he taught himself. He wanted to learn the Jutsu because earlier he had failed the exam that required him to create a clone. As you probably remember Naruto was followed by an assassin sent to kill him, but his teacher Iruka saved him.

After his first Jutsu, which later became his signature move, he entered the Chunin Exams. Naruto and his team managed to get to the second stage of the test but at one point they were ambushed. Orochimaru had other plans for Team 7, and what he wanted was to recruit Sasuke so he could eventually use him as his new vessel.

Sasuke was left with Orochimaru’s curse mark, at first he was confused about what he would do, but after he saw the strength he gained from the mark he decided to join Orochimaru. His only goal then was to defeat his older brother Itachi, so he would get revenge for what he did to their clan. This was like a shortcut to getting strong, Naruto tried to keep him from going but Sasuke wouldn’t listen.


Here’s What Chakra Natures Naruto Has

This was another point in Naruto’s growing motivation, not only to get stronger so he could bring Sasuke back but to become the Hokage as well. This would lead to his next important training arc with Jiraiya. The two of them went on the road and trained together, Jiraiya showed him the main elements of creating the Rasengan.

The Rasengan was quite difficult for Naruto to learn at first, it required a lot of patience and chakra control. Since he has a very jumpy personality it was hard for him to calm himself down and concentrate. Little by little he learned the technique and after that, he was evolving it on his own.

The same thing happened when he was training to learn the Sage Mode, which was an even more difficult task for him. The immense energy that comes with pure natural energy was extremely difficult, but when looking at all of the students he had, Fukasaku Naruto’s toad teacher, said that Naruto learned very quickly.

Going back to Naruto and Sasuke, their relationship was very complicated. Sasuke had his reasons for leaving and accepting he would become hated by everyone, but in the end, his goal was more important. After the Fourth Shinobi War ended the two of them were after the same goal now, to become the Hokage.

After hearing the true story about his older brother Itachi, Sasuke completely changed. This made him even angrier at the village, but now he wanted to rule it and take complete control with his powerful eyes. For their final fight, they met after the war was over, and at that moment both of them knew that this would be their final battle.

Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki last fight

The fight started off with Taijutsu, it was silent, and all you could hear was their punches landing. This was a very difficult scene to watch for many fans. They continued with their strongest Jutsu, Sasuke activated the Susano and Naruto entered his Tailed Beast state. The fight lasted for the whole day.

When it was hard for them to gather any chakra, they fought with their hands, the night started to fall and both of them were preparing to land the last blow. When they did that both of them lost their hands in the clash. This is where Naruto’s hand was healed with Hashirama’s cells and why ultimately he could use the Wood Style Jutsu because of this. He has not used it so far, not even in the Boruto series, but there might still be a chance of that happening in future episodes.


All 10 Rasengan Users In Naruto (Ranked)

Who else can use Wood Style in Naruto?

From what we are aware, there are ten Wood Style users in the Naruto universe so far. The Wood Style users are Yamato, Hashirama Senju, Madara Uchiha, Obito, Tobi, Ten-Tails, Orochimaru, Danzo, Moegi Kazamatsuri, and Momoshiki Otsutsuki. Most of these users were able to get this power because of experimentation with Hashirama Senju’s cells.

The only natural users among these are Hashirama Senju and Moegi Kazamatsuri. We don’t know some of the origins of this technique and how someone else could acquire it naturally but it is definitely an interesting power.

Will Naruto ever use Wood Release?

It is possible that Naruto will use the Wood Release technique, especially now that Kishimoto is back writing the Boruto series. He might want to revisit this power at some point. We definitely wouldn’t be surprised to see that happen. It is very well-known how Naruto’s arm got replaced, so we will see what happens in future episodes of the Boruto series.
