Original Japanese title: Gekirin ni Furero (逆鱗に触れろ).
The White Snake Sage tells Boruto to bring back the "Reverse Scale" from Garaga, a troublesome snake. Boruto and his friends head deeper into Ryuchi Cave and are confronted by a giant serpent. It is Garaga, the very one they seek, but its sheer power has the gang backed into a corner. Meanwhile, Moegi reports that Mitsuki's disappearance might involve someone who has access to crucial village secrets.
