In Naruto, the chakra is basically the concept that governs all the franchise’s power systems, since the greater the ninja’s chakra reserves and the better its manipulation, the more powerful its techniques will be.
However, a frequent question within the fandom of the work of Masashi Kishimoto it’s about Naruto’s chakra reserves, as many believe that without Kurama our young yellow-haired ninja wouldn’t have that much chakra.
While it is undeniable that Kurama’s power made him even stronger, during episode 55 of the Shippuden phase, when Naruto is learning to use Wind Release, Kakashi states that Naruto’s chakra is at least four times bigger than his, in case he didn’t use part of that power to suppress the Nine Tails, that chakra could be up to 100 times bigger.
So, naturally, without any help from Kurama, Naruto has 100 times more chakra than one of the most powerful and skilled ninjas featured in the franchise. But where does all this power come from?
In addition to being from the Uzumaki clan, who are direct descendants of the Senju clan, known for their enormous reserves of chakra and vitality, Naruto is still the reincarnation of Asura, that is, he has the same chakra as the legendary son of Hagoromo Otsutsuki, also known as the Sage of the Six Paths.
And not to mention that at the end of Shippuden Naruto still received part of the chakra from Hagomoro himself.
Naruto Shippuden was shown between the years 2007 and 2017 and counting the second phase of the anime. In it, Naruto returns after two years of training with the mission to fight Akatsuki and then rescue Sasuke from the clutches of Orochimaru.
Altogether, the anime has 500 episodes (including the Naruto Shippuden fillers), and ends the story of Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi. In addition, the anime sets the stage for the direct continuation of the story.
You can follow Naruto in full on Crunchyroll. In addition to it, the service features classic Naruto and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, its direct continuation.
