Neji HyūGa was a ninja of the Hyūga clan. He was a whizz-kid even by the standards of his clan. Being a member of the clan’s brand house, he had decided to be in service to the Hyūga main house irrespective of how skillful he becomes. He believed that his fate was predestined, but his opinion changed when he saw Naruto’s denial of such an ideology. Neji came to the conclusion that it was up to him to decide his fate, and he started seeking all the strength he needed to make a future that he wanted for himself and his loved ones.
Neji ended up sacrificing his own life for the protection of his cousin Hinata during the Fourth Shinobi World War. It was crucial for Naruto since because of him, he was able to stop Kaguya. Since Naruto later married Hinata, Neji had unknowingly saved Naruto’s future wife. The story could have been much different if it wasn’t for his sacrifice for the greater good. So, it is not surprising that Naruto fans regard him as the most selfless heroes of the show. Only just recently Boruto has honored Neji with his unique move, and it is all coming together since Neji was his unofficial godfather.
Neji was able to challenge Naruto and Sasuke and pushed them to their limits with his chakra manipulations and palm style techniques. He was too good for everyone his age, and it was believed that he was going to become Konoha’s most exceptional shinobi. Unfortunately, that never happened because of his premature death. Boruto, aware of this history, honored him in his fight with Kirisaki.
While investigating the case of Hashirama Cells, Boruto’s Team 7 go to the Land of Silence. There they find black markets where many of the wanted criminals roam freely. Even though the ninja alliance knows them, they choose to turn a blind eye to all the shady business that goes on there. This shocks Boruto as he can’t comprehend why the alliance would decide to do anything even when they know about all of this.
Team 7 finds out that to get their hands on the Hashirama Cell and to solve the case, they will have to interrogate Kirisaki, the rogue medical ninja. Boruto uses his sexy jutsu to lure him into a trap so that he can be caught. But the trick fails as Kirisaki starts fighting him. He easily dodges some of Kirisaki’s attacks, but when he rushes in, Boruto uses the Wind Style: Gale Palm to create high-speed winds that knock him out.
Boruto accurately mimics Neji’s movements in his attack as though he was copying him subconsciously. This shows how much respect he must-have for his godfather Neji, as he wants to make Neji’s moves his own. This is undoubtedly an emotional tribute from Boruto to Neji, and it has left all fans teary-eyed.
Boruto’s sister, Himawari, has the famous Byakugan eye technique. It would be a perfect homage if the siblings just pair the ocular jutsu along with the fighting style of Neji. What was even more impressive was the demeanor of Boruto after he performed Neji’s moves. Also, though he usually gets very excited and makes jokes after completing his mind-blowing moves, he appeared much different this time. Neji used to have a very stoic aura around him. After Boruto had copied his move, he also seemed very dignified and majestic as if he were relishing the historical significance of his actions. Boruto has always been very compassionate and considerate towards others. His tribute to Neji proves that he is born for greatness like his father, Naruto Uzumaki.
