    The same as movie Momoshiki?:hm

    The other two mediums didn't really give him new abilities or have him do anything that set him apart, and his overall portrayal was the same even if feats differed a bit.

    Generally, it was all the same, but the differences I noted:

    Movie: he had Kinshiki's weapons plus his other animal jutsu.
    Novel: he had that "star absorption" going on and had other jutsu absorbed like ice style jutsu.

    So the Momo we saw with the above abilities.

    Like @Platypus said, that star absorption was just a translation quirk. He was just absorbing a bunch of Chakra from the people on earth like Kaguya did with the MT victims.

    I got a question, I don't know if this was already told but...

    -Where exactly are Boruto and Sasuke in the flashback?
    I'm assuming they are heading to The Hokage Office Roof. If so...Boruto has Sasuke's Hitai-ate. Didn't he only received Sasuke's headband next to the Rinnegan portal, where he said goobye to his mother, friends, etc...?

    An author's mistake (I know he can later correct that in the next volume) or am I confusing things (as usual lol)?

    But in the roof he doesn't....(like the next 2/3 chapters after that one)

    That's why my question: Where exactly are they?
    I might messing up this haha

    You're right, I didn't even notice. Yeah they would be making their way to the 'scene' where Hinata stops them before entering the portal.

    So by that he shouldn't have had the headband on. Probably just a mistake, it's not really that big for them to fix later on I think :catthinks

    Still good eye.

    Can't really blame people since the only novel translation we had literally said he was absorbing a star, and not everyone is well versed with the nuances of Japanese.

    it wasn't really that far fetched either seeing as Toneri was apparently absorbing energy from the sun (unless that's another misunderstanding too) so most would assume Momoshiki was doing the same or something similar.:mlpshrug

    Yes I know that Japanese is very hard to understand, but you could do so much more research a don't believe in some Jackass that trows something out of the place, like for example the Toneri stuff could be a reference to Hinata since the meaning of her name is "Place in the sun", And a matter of fact if you read the reviews of the novels in the website Anime news Network even that translation were wrong in certain places.

    Research where? The novel is the only place Momoshiki actually does the absorption thing, and that was the only translation we had, not to mention it was otherwise accurate.

    Plus the thing Toneri did wasn't metaphorical. He literally absorbed energy from the sun, so it's not like anyone would be suspect to another person doing the same thing. T'was just a misunderstanding, which tends to happen with mistranslations.:cattired

    Momoshiki only did absorption of 2 things, one was Boruto attacks and then were the scientist attack, and the Rinnegan can only do absorption of Chakra/Natural Chakra nothing more.

    iirc sasuke said something along the lines of "mankind who lived on that star won't see a tomorrow". I'm pretty sure the naruto world isn't a sun, so yeah. Would've been a great thing to see than what we got.

    That's probably not the exact sentence from the novel, but the context was that Momoshiki absorbing energy from the "star" threaten mankind's existence.

    The context implied it was the earth, not the sun. The star bit is probably a translation mistake or something. Stupid or not, that made Momoshiki seem like a big threat.

    Planets and moons have natural energy on/in them so I can imagine stars having natural energy as well, except on a much bigger scale.

    I think deep down we already knew Momoshiki and the other future Otsutski will be large disappointments.
    Even if they absorbed the sun, somehow a Rasengan will kill them :cat

    It's true, he is like Kaguya you know that he is gonna lose, so you doesn't feel nothing, and he has no background.

    So in the way the Shinju the tree is like a parasite that sucks Natural energy from planets that have enough and make immortal magic fruits.

    Seems to be the case. The wiki says,

    "Some Ōtsutsuki, such as Momoshiki and Kinshiki, harvest the God Tree's fruit until it and its respective planet die, at which point they go looking for a new one."

    But I don't know where it was mentioned (movie, novel, some guidebook maybe?)—outside of recent anime fillers saying that the Shinju leftover was absorbing natural energy from its environment or something along those lines.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Although, if Momo and Kin were harvesting Shinju trees, why didn't they just consume Chakra Fruits instead of cultivating those red chakra pills which seem far less effective?

    This is true, that's why i was on the fence about that "Star" feat appearing in the manga. You have all of that yet die to a rasengan. It just makes the defeat that more embarrassing. :catprone
    Well, that's true. Kinda funny how kishimoto cut out kaguya's background story to avoid "unnecessarily" lengthening the manga & he scrapped momo & kinshiki's backstories because there wasn't enough airing time.

    Maybe they are incomplete versions. In my opinion whats on that scroll that Sasuke Found is the formula to make the true fruit, type that Kaguya made.


    And the anime made a stupid story that doesn't made sense in terms of world building, and character development.

    when you have people that don't understand the world and characters that's what bound to happen. And that's why you should never put freelancer do the writing and i know that do anime is tiring and expensive, but when you cut corners your franchise is gonna suffer. I got a little mad when i saw the Mangekyo Sharingan Of Indra and How Hogomoro awake is sharingan, Really Byakugan evolves to the Sharingan, that only make the Byakugan look like Shit.

    2- His speech was ok at the start of the vid, but then he started rambling nonsense when he started talking about Asspulldara.

    There is a channel for a retarded guy on Youtube that seems like stalking me everywhere as well. :geg

    I think I even blocked him (Or tried to?) and I still keep seeing his shit as recommended or something on my screen! :psyduck

    So far, Momoshiki is probably the strongest. I don't see how is that a wrong or outrageous thing to think about. And as he pointed out, all the villains before Momoshiki were only battling Naruto and/or Sasuke when they were only teenagers, where Momoshiki battled them when they are adults.

    He was not sure if their powers have increased or not, but it's pretty obvious that they are MUCH stronger than how they were during their teen time.


    Yes, the Asspulldara wank was rubbish. :catdude
