Kabuto was one of the most notable villains to appear in the early days of the Naruto franchise, being the right-hand man of the snake ninja known as Orochimaru, and one fan revisited the rogue ninja’s most terrifying appearance via a truly amazing cosplay. Like so many other villains introduced throughout the series, Kabuto ultimately moved from the dark side to the light thanks in part to Naruto, as well as a genjutsu placed on him by Itachi Uchiha, who fought the successor to Orochimaru alongside his brother Sasuke during the next series. of Naruto Shippuden.
Many fans were shocked when it was revealed that not only was Orochimaru redeemed at the end of Shippuden, but the show’s former main antagonist now lives within the borders of the Hidden Leaf Village. Much like his former master, Kabuto was also bought out and currently works in the orphanage he once called his home, leaving behind the battles of Ninja World in the current series created by Masashi Kishimoto in Boruto: The Next Generations Of Naruto, although he still has an appearance that makes him resolutely resemble the villain he once was as he worked with the Akatsuki to help create World Ninja War.
Instagram cosplayer Noah OniNeko shared this perfect and terrifying recreation of Kabuto’s form as he was able to absorb a part of Orochimaru into himself and turned out to be one of the most powerful antagonists ever. Naruto and his village have never faced in their entire lives:
Orochimaru and Kabuto’s legacy unexpectedly continued throughout Boruto, with Team 7 made up of albino member Mitsuki, the former villain clone who once fought alongside Tsunade and Jiraiya. Orochimaru’s offspring has yet to display any villainous tendencies throughout his career as a young ninja, and will continue to play a central role as the Kara Organization continues its plan for world domination while trying to spread the legacy of the celestial ninjas known as the Otsutsuki clan.
