Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is now setting the stage for its next major arc, and with the newest chapter has revealed the hidden secret to how Daemon’s power actually works! Eida and Daemon were first introduced to the series as two leftover cyborgs Code had activated that were deemed even too dangerous for Kara to deal with. Code soon figured out why this was the case as both of their abilities were far tougher to deal with than anything we had seen from the Kara members overall. This was especially true for Daemon as his powers seemed to counter all attacks.
The previous chapters had set up Eida and Daemon to be an unstoppable duo who not only would cause their opponents to lose their will to attack in the first place with Eida’s ability, but those who actually did manage to strike would be blocked by Daemon’s power that instantly reflected anything launched at him with a killer intent. But the newest chapter of the series revealed the hidden secret to how Daemon’s power actually works, and there’s a way around as he needs to touch others with his hands to use his ability on them.
Chapter 71 of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations continues the intense shakedown Code had with Amado, and soon it turns into a full breakdown of Code and Eida’s uneasy alliance. It’s here that Daemon fully thrusts himself into the action, and Bug explains to Code that it’s only when Daemon touches others with his hands that their actions are reflected. He tells Code this in the attempt to get the two dangerous entities to take each other out somehow, but even with this knowledge it’s revealed that Daemon is much stronger than he looks.
So while this is a tricky ability, thankfully there’s now revealed to be a way around it. Rather than seeming invincible and just countering all the killer attacks that come his way, all they need to do is somehow avoid coming in contact with him to take him out. There might be even more to the ability than explained here, and doing so will be much easier said than done. But at least there’s now a way to counter it slightly.
It’s just a matter of seeing how Boruto and the others advance from this point on, so what do you think? How do you feel about Daemon’s ability as a whole? How do you think he can be defeated?
