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

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

Boruto Uzumaki is the titular protagonist of Masashi Kishimoto’s Boruto, the sequel to his original Naruto franchise. Boruto was born as Naruto’s and Hinata’s son and has become the principal character of his own series. Throughout the years, we have followed Boruto’s growth and evolution from a baby to where he is now, and the story is still ongoing, so we assume that many thrills await us in the future. In this article, of course, we will discuss Boruto Uzumaki and tell you how he got Sasuke’s famous headband in the series.

As we’ve seen in Chapter 49 of the manga series, Boruto asked Sasuke to lend him his headband before they went off to help Naruto against Isshiki. Sasuke, Boruto’s teacher, knew what the headband meant to him and how important it was for him psychologically, so he lent it to him, telling him to be sure to bring it back, which Boruto says he will do.

The rest of the article will give you some more information on Boruto wearing Sasuke’s headband, as we will explain its symbolism and how it influenced Boruto’s overall appearance. Since there is no precise answer to this, there will be several theories in this article and some spoilers, so be careful how you approach the article if you don’t know everything yet.

Why is Boruto wearing Sasuke’s headband, and how did he get it?

Before we really give you some hypotheses about Boruto’s headband, let’s take a look at an analysis of Boruto’s overall appearance since the headband is also linked to another aspect of his appearance. Boruto has two whisker markings on each cheek, blonde, spiky hair, and blue eyes. Although he has some facial characteristics from his mother, such as the shape of his face and eyes, overall, he is remarkably similar to his father. His tail suggests the stem, and his hairstyle is reminiscent of a leaf. Sarada Uchiha claims that his eyes are a deeper shade of blue than Naruto’s.

The fire symbol was on the left chest of the black tracksuit Boruto wore as a child, and a bolt-like symbol was on the back. He was dressed in white flat sandals and black slacks with red side stripes. Boruto donned a pink shirt and black shorts the day that his father, Naruto, was appointed Hokage. Later, for the ceremony, he changed into a black shirt with a white cloak over it. His attire remained largely the same as before when he was a student at the Academy, except for adding red stripes to his unbuttoned jacket.


He has a bolt hanging around his neck and a white T-shirt below the jacket. With the exception of the forehead protection, his attire remains essentially the same once he becomes a genin. He would subsequently add a brown belt to his pants. Sasuke’s damaged forehead protector and Naruto’s original orange jacket were both temporarily used by Boruto. Boruto received a black diamond-shaped mark in the middle of his palm from Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki after touching his right arm, which he momentarily concealed with bandages.

Later in life, Boruto would obtain a tattoo of his fully developed Kama on his right arm, covering part of his hand, and a scar over his right eye. This tattoo can change blue and runs the length of his right side. He wears a jacket over a white shirt that is identical to the ones he wore when he was younger, as well as unusually short black leggings with red stripes around the borders, long brown shinobi sandals, and a black cape with the bottom inside. He also has a forehead protector split down the middle and an extra stripe that matches the scar on his eye.

As you can see, Boruto’s appearance has changed over the years, but Sasuke’s headband was never really a prime accessory to his persona. Boruto never owned Sasuke’s headband, and it was just an addition to his overall design, seen only during some key moments in the series. It is important to understand, as well, that Sasuke also values this headband, as it is a symbol of his growth, his evolution, and the overall story we’ve seen in Naruto. This is why he keeps it close by despite not wearing it anymore and doesn’t want anyone else to have it. Save for Boruto.

Boruto is Sasuke’s pupil, and from that perspective, it is important for us to stress that Sasuke Uchiha is very close to Boruto. Despite his rivalry with his father, he became a mentor to Boruto, and he did a great job in raising Boruto and teaching him, giving to him what Naruto, due to his own personality, could never give him Boruto. This is why the two of them are so close and why Sasuke trusts Boruto so much, enough to give him his headband, and that is a very important moment and the fact that must be considered here.


Is Sasuke Still a Genin? You Won’t Believe the Answer!

In Chapter 49 of the Boruto manga, we see Sasuke and Boruto prepare to go and help Naruto fight Isshiki. With Boruto having his usual doubts about Momoshiki, Sasuke gives him a proper motivational speech and even promises to kill him if Momoshiki takes over his body, something that Naruto could never do; Boruto accepts that fact and is even more determined to do his best because he knows how much his father and his mentor care for him.

Before they leave, Boruto asks Sasuke to lend him his headband, as he did before when they went to save Naruto from Momoshiki. Knowing how important it is for him and how it can influence him psychologically, Sasuke accepts and lends Boruto his headband, telling him to return it because it is very important to him; Boruto agrees with it that. The headband makes Boruto more determined. He is seen wearing it only during some important moments (helping Naruto against Momoshiki and Isshiki, and fighting Kawaki), which shows how important it is for him and why he asks Sasuke to lend it to him.
