Code is currently the main villain in the story of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. But after all, would he be able to defeat Naruto with the current power he has without Kurama?
Would Code be able to beat Naruto without Kurama?
Like Kawaki, Code received Karma from Isshiki, however, some anomaly gave him White Karma instead of normal, despite him being considered a failure at first.
With this Karma, his powers far exceeded Jigen’s and for that purpose, Code had to have limiters installed in his body to suppress his power and make him weaker than the leader. After Isshiki’s death, he now intends to remove his Limiters and gain the strength of a God-consuming planet after planet. Without Kurama’s power, Naruto Uzumaki has absolutely no chance against him in combat these days.
Of course, this could change in the future, but the truth is that at the current moment of the manga, Code is the most powerful being on earth.
