Episode 219 of the Boruto anime unleashed a vengeful villain on Konoha, and he was even stronger than Isshiki.
In the Boruto anime, Naruto and his teammates breathed a sigh of relief after dodging a bullet known as Isshiki Ōtsutsuki. They barely managed to kill the aliens, returning home to Konoha with Kurama dead, Naruto losing power, Sasuke losing his Rinnegan, and Boruto struggling to keep Momoshiki at bay. However, they appreciate the silver lining and look forward to fending off another threat, another day. Well, that’s coming to them much sooner than expected as Boruto has now unleashed an even stronger villain than Isshiki on Konoha.
When the Hokage and Co. back, they hold a council with the scientist, Amado, who defected from Kara and betrayed Isshiki. He and Koji Kashin made up a plan to get Isshiki away from his host, Jigen, which resulted in Naruto’s team killing the villain, but now Amado warns them about the Code.
The young man is the last remnant of Isshiki’s cell, hiding in another pocket space to keep an eye on the Ten-Tails. While Boruto doesn’t show much Code in action, Amado warns him to be a more dangerous vessel than Kawaki. While not a perfect host, Code has more power inside, so without Isshiki he could run around.
The big turning point was that Amado had set limits on himself, which Code loved because he didn’t want to be stronger than his boss. He actually reveres Isshiki as both a god and a father, but the truth is that Isshiki also knows Code’s genetic experiments made him almighty. He hasn’t used his full potential – but Amado knows this will change as his quest for revenge begins.
First, Code has White Karma as opposed to the Black Karma Kawaki has, allowing Isshiki’s spirit to appear before him one last time. He poured all his strength into the teenager, telling him that he must now carry out Ōtsutsuki’s will. Isshiki disappears and Code swears to serve Konoha for destroying his god.
Even with his limits turned on, Amado knew the Code was a group dedicated to sabotaging one person. Seeing that he was the only one who could eliminate them, the scientist worried because he was now also a target. It worries Boruto fans seeing death and destruction ahead as Code is ready to use his Ōtsutsuki abilities to track down Boruto and Kawaki.
Their alien DNA meant that they could be sacrificed to the Ten-Tails to create the Tree of God and the chakra fruit, which was Isshiki’s plan up to now. And considering all that’s left is Isshiki’s ‘son’, Code seizes the chance to complete the quest and drain the planet’s life essence – especially as he will have to taste the pain of the planet. Hidden Leaf shinobi on the go.
