Can Kawaki Beat Hashirama in Boruto? This has been a long debate for many fans however, we have a conclusion on which character would win. Many fans would agree that Kawaki at this current level now in the anime, being able to control his Karma without Isshiki Otsutsuki is one of the top five strongest characters in Boruto.
Wel will go through why some fans believe Kawaki can beat Hashirama was why others think not. Then, we will come to a conclusion base on the evidence. Recently in Boruto, Amado made two separate statements and even code himself made stated that he can take down the current Naruto and it will not go down the same with Delta.
It was very straightforward and clear that Kawaki is massively stronger than Code in the manga. So, just by using the logic that a lot of fans say that Kawaki is stronger than Hashirama. We all know Hashirama is a beast when it comes to chakra. However, Hashirama is known for using his wood style and summons his Wood Golem and Dragon. Current Kawaki would have easily shrunk his Wood Golem and Dragon immediately as Kawaki gets his sight on it.
However, if Hashirama decide to use his trump card which is a thousand hands and statue, it would have gotten shrunk as well. Hashirama would then realizes that Ninjutsu is completely useless against Kawaiki and goes into close combat. However, this would lead Hashirama to immediately get clapped with zero difficulty.
A lot of fans would argue that Hashirama has more experience than a Kawaki, which is somewhat reasonable but not entirely effective with the Karma seal. While retaining the Karam seal Kawaki would figure out that Karma gives the user experience. This only means that Kawaki has Isshiki’s fighting style and experience for why back as well.
Nonetheless, Kawaki also uses can use is his metal rods on Hashirama and his chakra is now blocked/locked and he is vulnerable after that. So, this is how Kawaki would defeat Hashirmama.
Kawaki Vs Broushiki
Kawaki is a total and complete beast in the Manga. During his battle with Borushiki, Kawaki just toyed with Borushiki at the moment, he could have killed Broushiki without the need of Boruto waking up if Naruto didn’t intervene. Kawaki would have also killed Code with limiter in the latest chapter he bodied Borushiki. At his point in the Manga with Kawaki controlling the Karma seal power, he is comparable at Jigen’s level in terms of power, however, that might be a stretch too far.
Hashirama is most definitely strong might be the strongest however, his power means nothing to these Karma characters, anything Hashirama use would be shrunk. Nonetheless, Kawaki should also be much faster than Hashirama, which combined with the fact that Hashirama can’t sense or see Kawaki when shrunk makes this an easy win for Kawaki. Again, Kawaki could easily rods Hashirama and drains him of chakra.
A lot of fans still don’t understand how powerful these rods are. While we see Naruto and Sasuke running out of chakra quickly from the rod’s effect, the same rods are capable of subduing the juvenile Ten-Tails and Hashirama had nowhere near that much chakra.
Kawaki vs Hashirama
Many fans would say that Kawaki doesn’t stand a chance against Hashirama. This is because Hashirama Senju was the First Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Also, he is regarded as the ‘God of Shinobi’ due to his excellent qualities in being a shinobi and chakra mass. He was the one who started the foundation of villages and was the only rival to Madara Uchiha.
Hashirama had humongous chakra reserves which would give him an edge in any battle, comparable to the all the Tailed Beasts. Hashirama also possessed Wood Style Kekkei Genkai which allowed him to create huge wood statues while he summons forests, and wields wood as a weapon which is an extremely powerful Jutsu. This Jutsu allowed him to fight against the Nine-Tails, and capture all other Tailed Beasts as if they were his pets. Hashirama also fight and went up against a Susanno many times.
We also know that Hashirama was a natural healer. Back in the day, Hashirama was able to heal injuries without weaving any signs. His healing abilities were also stated to be on the same or even higher level as Tsunade’s 100s Healing Jutsu. Nevertheless, many fans say that Hashirama is an absolute powerhouse and got powers without the help of any Six Paths strength.
Kawaki on the other hand was Isshiki Otsutski’s vessel. Although the situation is complicated now that he can control his Karma at will. Kawai in recent chapters somehow acquired Isshiki’s dojutsu along with Isshiki’s abilities.
Can Kawaki Beat Hashirama?
Kawaki can defeat Hashirama easily in Boruto easily even with all the strength Hashirama has. This is due to the fact that Kawaki can now control his Karma seal power at will and that he has all the knowledge that Isshiki know in battle long before Hashirama existed. Hashirama may be strong and have a lot of Chakra reserves, however, he is no match for Otsutsuki level fighters.
