Kawaki Arc

Kawaki was seen to be passed out by Boruto, Sarada, Mitsuki, and Konohamaru. Boruto later sees his Karma seal on his hand, and he finds out it's the same one he has. Several minutes later, an outer of the organization called Kara named Garo appeared and Kawaki fights him using his prowess, he's able to make his body parts into brownish and a few little orange spots, in doing so, he's able to become way stronger then he is in a normal state. He then uses Karma to absorb Garo's attacks. He kills Garo, and afterward, Boruto uses his Karma to fight and save Konohamaru Team 7's sensei, after Garo shot a fire attack at him. Absorbing all the attacks, Kawaki and the rest of team 7 head back to Konoha and Kawaki gets put into the hospital and is asked further questions by Sai. After being brought to Konohagakure by Team 7, he is taken in by Naruto Uzumaki who trains him and treats him like family, during which he develops a brotherly bond with Boruto because of them both possessing Karma, however, Kawaki would then lose Karma during the Isshiki Ōtsutsuki fight and will somehow regain Karma due to it being shown in the brief scene after the time-skip.


During his childhood, Kawaki was raised by a man who suffered from alcohol problems and beat him constantly, until Jigen bought the boy with a large sum of money. Taking over his custody, he told Kawaki to be at ease from now on, as after all, he was his new father. So Jigen took him to Kara's hideout, where he performed experiments on his body with the organization's scientist and researcher, believing that the boy might be able to forcefully receive Karma into his body. In the end, the test was carried out with several children and all died, except Kawaki, who survived and received the seal of Karma in the palm of his left hand. Later, the boy was subjected to being beaten by Jigen so that he could learn to use the power of Karma, even against his own will. At some point later, he mastered Karma more and pulled out Garō's jaw.

At one point, he underwent a series of changes in the structure of his body, being transformed into a scientific weapon, in which he had all his blood vessels and his nervous system replaced by some inorganic technology.

Kawaki is apparently defeated by Kara's outsider, but manages to turn the fight around using a new power, stronger than the one shown earlier, defeating Garō and killing him, even with the pleas to be spared. When he kills the outsider, Kawaki looks ahead and sees that the Konoha boys survived their attack because Boruto was able to absorb part of it with his Karma thanks to the resonance caused by the use of Kawaki. It's noted that the boys of Konoha did not even have the slightest knowledge of that power. Then the boy falls unconscious on the floor, and Katasuke watches him noting that his body has been totally modified into a living Scientific Ninja Weapon.
