As the son of the Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, Boruto was angry with his father for putting the village in front of his family. At that time, Boruto became a member of the ninja team led by Naruto’s protégé Konohamaru Sarutobi, along with Sarada Uchiha, the daughter of Sasuke and Sakura Uchiha, and Mitsuki, the artificial son of Orochimaru. When Sasuke returns to the village to warn Naruto of the impending threat of finding out Kaguya Otsutsuki’s motives, Boruto convinces the Uchiha to prepare him for the upcoming Chunin exam in order to impress his father.
During the exam, Momoshiki Otsutsuki and Kinshiki Otsutsuki – the threat Sasuke spoke of – appear and kidnap Naruto so that they can use Kurama, the tailed beast sealed in his body, to resurrect the dying Divine Tree from the dimension they came from. Boruto joins Sasuke and the four Kage – the leaders of the other ninja villages – to rescue Naruto. The battle ends when Momoshiki, who sacrificed Kinshiki for the increase, is defeated by Boruto and his father with the help of Sasuke.

When Isshiki arrives in Konoha, he looks for Kawaki. Naruto meets him face to face, preparing to fight. Boruto transports himself and Isshiki to a different location away from the village, followed by Sasuke and Naruto. Since Boruto is Momoshiki’s ship, Isshiki plans to feed him with his Ten-Tails in order to plant the Divine Tree. With Naruto’s new strength, Barion Mode, he defeats Isshiki before Kawaki tricks him, causing Isshiki to die, but at the expense of Kurama’s chakra and life force. Boruto, possessed by Momoshiki, destroys Sasuke’s Rinnegan. However, Sasuke and Kawaki confront Momoshiki until Boruto takes his body. After the defeat, Issiki asks Koda, who guarded the Ten-Tails, to continue the will of Otsutsuki, sacrifice Boruto or Kawaki to the Ten-Tails, then eat the chakra fruit and become Otsutsuki himself.
