The early Reddit spoilers of Boruto Chapter 71 are finally out and we saw Daemon giving himself the title of strongest character in Boruto right now.
According to Daemon, Code without limiters is stronger than Sasuke and Naruto. But to Code it doesn’t matter who is the second and third strongest, since he is the number one.
Daemon also said that Code without limiters is even stronger than Jigen. This reminds us of one of Amado’s dialogues where he told us that he had made multiple cyborgs stronger than Jigen, but he had to dispose of all of them on Jigen’s orders.
So Amado was speaking the truth when he said that he had made cyborgs stronger than Jigen at one time.
But what makes Daemon the strongest creature in Borutoverse? Is no one his equal right now?
In the previous Boruto chapters, it was made clear that Jigen was stronger than individual Sasuke and Naruto, so this makes Code without limiters stronger than them as well.
Now that we have seen Daemon defeat Code effortlessly, it will be safe to say that he is the strongest creature in Boruto right now. But what about Kawaki and Boruto?
What Is Daemon’s Power?
From what we have seen, Daemon possesses power similar to the full counter where he is able to reflect opponents attacks against them.
According to Ada, he is the only non-Otsutsuki capable of killing her.
When Daemon first time appeared, we saw that he possesses fast speed and exceptional stealth. He was able to get out of his pod instantly and get behind Code catching him off guard.
Amado is the one who worked on Daemon and enhanced his abilities with the help of scientific ninja tools. According to Amado, the current Daemon is easily stronger than Jigen.
So how does Daemon’s full counter actually work?
It seems like Daemon uses his quick speed and scientific ninja tools embedded inside him to reverse the trajectory of the attack, thus reversing the attack while increasing its speed and power.
This catches his opponents off guard, thus defeating them easily. Some Youtube theories even specify that Daemon might have future-sight where he can see a few seconds ahead in the future.
Is Daemon The Strongest Creature In Boruto?
After the early Boruto Chapter 71 spoilers, fans are asking if Daemon is the strongest creature in the Borutoverse right now or not. To this, we think he is currently the No. 1.
According to us here at Recent Highlights, Daemon is indeed the strongest in Boruto at this moment.
As shown in Boruto 71 early leaks, Daemon easily defeated Code who was fighting without his limiters. Even Ada recognizes his strength and feels like he is the only person other than an Otsutsuki who can defeat her.
Kawaki must come a close third after Code when it comes to the current strongest rankings in the Boruto manga.
So when Code gets defeated by the joint efforts of Naruto, Sasuke, Boruto, and Kawaki, will they also be able to defeat Daemon.
All of this depends on how Konoha establishes its relationship with Ada. According to Amado, Ads should join hands with Konoha and Daemon goes wherever Ada goes.
So let us know your thoughts about this theory on whether Daemon is the strongest creature in Boruto manga right now or not. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments down below.
