Today I'd like to share with you the legend behind the character of Isshiki Otsutsuki, from "Boruto: Naruto Next Generation".

The Otsutsuki Clan - Folklore and Manga

Maybe you don't know that but Kishimoto took into consideration real Japanese Legends for the main branch of the Otsutsuki Clan. . . and some of their related powers.

  • Momoshiki Otsutsuki & Momotaro ---> is a popular hero of japanese folklore and his three companion beasts (pheasant, monkey, dog).

No Caption Provided

We can find the connection between Momoshiki and Momotaro in his three beasts:

  • Inukai Takeru no Mikoto - (Dog)
  • Saruiwa - (Monkey)
  • Kijigari - (Pheasant)
Monkey - Pheasant - Dog
Monkey - Pheasant - Dog

  • Kinshiki Otsutsuki & Kintaro ---> another hero from japanese folklore. Phenomenally strong and wielder of the axe called Masakari.

  • Urashiki Otsutsuki & Urashima Taro ---> the protagonist of the fairy tale called "Otogi Banashi", a fisherman rewarded for rescuing a turtle, and carried on its back to the Dragon Palace (Ryugu-jo) beneath the sea. When he returns to his home village, he discovers he has been gone for at least 100 years.
No Caption Provided

The connection with Urashiki's Dragon Palace/Time Freeze and Karasuki is very clear.

  • Kaguya Otsutsuki & Princess Kaguya ---> the main character from "Taketori Monogatari", which is said to be one of the oldest Japanese legends in written record. According to the legend, Princess Kaguya wears a hagoromo ("feather mantle") when she returns home to her kingdom. The name Ōtsutsuki (大筒木) roughly means "big bamboo tree" and is derived from an obscure passage in the second volume of the Kojiki about the genealogies of Emperor Suinin, eleventh emperor of Japan, which states that he had a consort named Kaguyahime no Mikoto, the daughter of a king named Ōtsutsukitarine no Miko; tradition holds that these individuals served as the basis for Princess Kaguya and the old bamboo cutter in the aforementioned tale.
No Caption Provided

Her horn-like appendages symbolise rabbit ears, representing her connection to the moon by evoking the moon-rabbit; pop culture depictions of Princess Kaguya and the moon-folk often incorporate features like rabbit ears for this reason. This also fits with her being known as the "Usagi no Megami".

Isshiki Otsutsuki & The Legend of Issun Boshi

No Caption Provided

  • What is "Issun Boshi" and how it's related to Isshiki ---> it's the JP folklore references to Isshiki, Issun-Boshi (“One-Inch-Boy”) & Uchide No Kozuchi (“Magic Wish-Granting Mallet”).

A folklore where are present these themes that you surely recognise.

No Caption Provided

So far the manga shown some of the stuff present in the folklore of Issun Boshi, such as ---> changing size, being stuck inside a body, conjuring food/wealth...

No Caption Provided

No Caption Provided

Furthermore the real power of Isshiki' shrink ability might have been hinted by Kashin Koji in the last chapter:

No Caption Provided

Not just that. . . the manga also shown us therice bowl from Issun Boshi's tale, as a Fuinjutsu used to seal Naruto for good.

No Caption Provided

The Miracle Mallet & The True Power of Isshiki

  • We know that Issun Boshi can shrink himself but. . . how can he do that? Thanks to:

"Miracle Mallet" aka "Uchide no Kozuchi" ---> It is a legendary artefact, a small hammer with the power to change an object's size.

No Caption Provided

However. . . this isn't the only power Uchide no Kozuchi grants to hiw wielder. It's also known to be able to realize anything wished for. This explains the name "Miracle Mallet" or "The Wish Granting Mallet".

It was also hinted by Jigen, as Kara's true and final purpose.

No Caption Provided

Uchide no Kozuki symbol is also present on Isshiki's body and outfit :

No Caption Provided

That said, the Miracle Mallet grants several unique abilities, such as:

1- size manipulation

2- mind manipulation

3- reality warping

4- summoning

5- gravity manipulation

6- water manipulation

7- duplication

8- life manipulation

No Caption Provided

Do you remember when Naruto wasn't able to sense Jigen's presence? Someone thought it was due to him being shrinked to a micro-size, like atom or molecule. . . others said Naruto was nerfed.

Actually this was due to one of Uchide no Kozuki's effects ---> "Can numb people's sense of dangers, making them less cautius"

No Caption Provided

Dharmachakra - The New Isshiki's Dojutsu

No Caption Provided

---> The last chapter of Boruto has introduced a new Dojutsu, that resembles The Eight-Spoked Dharma Wheel or Dharmachakra.

No Caption Provided

The Dharmachakra ---> comes from the Dharma, which is the path to attaining enlightenment and reaching Nirvana (the highest state of being a person can achieve). It also means "the Wheel of Law":

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________That said and taking into consideration the folklore behind the char. . . we know just the 10% of Isshiki's true power.

''Kaguyahime no Mikoto, the daughter of a king named Ōtsutsukitarine no Miko''

Otsutsuki King and possibly name in the series ? If that's the case weird to think he just let her daughter be sealed and killed twice and decided to do nothing.

I also wanna add things on KK flames

They are heavenly supernatural flames from Heaven.

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

When Sun Wu Kong was causing trouble in Heaven he battles all the Gods and eventually was captured. He was sentenced to be tortured in the eternal flame pot which was used to cook the Gods immortal Pills.

But since he ate the Immortal Elixirs Himself he wouldn’t be killed easily.

When they opened the pot after months Sun Wu Kong jumped out, surviving in the vents of the heater, but his eyes were turned goldish red from the smoke.

The Heavenly Pot was knocked over And its Charcoal which fell down to earth catching fire to mountains which became the flaming mountains.

These flames were so powerful they lasted for 500 years.

No Caption Provided

When Sun Wu Kong was freed n went on the journey to the west with his new master, passing the flaming mountains was one of their trials.

Despite having incredible power Sun Wu Kong couldn’t blow away the flames. Hearing about a great goddess princess who had a supernatural fan that could extinguish the flames he traveled there to her on his flying cloud.

There he had to battle Princess Iron Fan to get her to let him use the fan, her being angry at monkey king for his foolishness 500 years ago she blew the king away with her fan 80,000 feet into the air To another mountain. On this mountain the God of that mountain gave monkey king a magical orb that would allow him to not be blown away again.

When monkey king returned he easily defeated the princess since she could not blow him away. And for his victory he took her fan.

With the fan monkey king was able to blow away the flames.

he fan blew him away borrowed a Magical Leaf Fan from a Goddess to blow out the flames in order to pass.

@joviolma: @kalebsmarty156: Momoshiki did seem like he cared about Kinshiki though.

*****

“Kinshiki.”

The flame of Kinshiki’s life was in a trodden down state in front of the injured Momoshiki.

However, Kinshiki’s expression was peaceful.

That was because this was the law in their clan.

“Come now…Momoshiki-sama.” Kinshiki said. “It looks like the time has come for you to eat my chakra as well…”

Momoshiki was staring at him.

There was nothing else he could do.

“It is my duty as your parental role.” Kinshiki guided Momoshiki just as he had done in the past. “The only thing I can pass onto you is power…Do not hesitate.”

“…”

“Just as my parental role once entrusted his power to me….now I do to you.”

“…Of course.” Momoshiki extended his right hand towards Kinshiki.

The time had come.

Sucking up the power of jutsu from its very foundation.

It was given from parental role to child.

Chakra was no more than their clan’s property.

They had to use it in the most efficient manner.

There was nothing more to it than that.

“GUAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

Kinshiki let out a dreadful scream.

His soul was being sucked into Momoshiki.

Kinshiki dried up and rotted away.

Inside Momoshiki’s hand, there appeared several cinnabar pancea pills. The compensation.

“You…to your comrade, you….!”

“You demon…!”

Naruto and Sasuke had gotten to their feet.

What do you understand? Momoshiki thought, but saying that out loud would only insult Kinshiki’s resolution.

There was only one way to repay him.

“The transfer of power…that is our clan’s law.” Momoshiki said, and ate the cinnabar pancea pills that had been created from Kinshiki.

The colour of his flesh changed. Chakra spurted out from all over his body.

“From the very beginning, this star was the our Ootsutsuki’s seedplot!” He yelled, “Come now, the time for all the chakra to be eaten has come!”

He was truly an ogre.

Those who would eat the soul of someone who’d been like a father couldn’t be anything other than an ogre.

That was their law.

*****

1- size manipulation

2- mind manipulation

3- reality warping

4- summoning

5- gravity manipulation

6- water manipulation

7- duplication

8- life manipulation

Some of these abilities seem incredibly overpowered; others, a little mundane.

Mind, gravity, and water manipulation, and summoning and duplication we have all seen before.

The rest seem quite haxed.

It would be cool to see him shrinking chakra.

Like suppressing chakra just by looking at someone.

Looks like my hypothesis was correct

From what I just read in the spoilers for the new Boruto Chapter

Isshiki DOES have the ability to numb danger sense/sensory abilities with his miracle mallet abilities like his lore states

Hence why even Six Paths Naruto could not sense him

I want to know what Kurama means by Isshiki being "Beyond this dimension"

4D Isshiki

At least 8D actually as Juubito, Juubidara and Hagoromo all also have Higher Dimensional statements 🤧

But for real, what do you think of this ability being proven right by yours truly? ( Need someone to stroke my ego )
