While the Naruto movie does showcase the building romance between the characters, it also features an Otsutsuki that most fans might have missed because they skipped the movie. The Last: Naruto the Movie delivers one of the best fights against Otsutsuki Toneri.

In the last scene of the movie, Otsutsuki Toneri uses his technique to split the Moon in half. As speculated by most fans, this Moon could be one of the orbs both Naruto and Sasuke created to seal away Otsutsuki Kaguya, which could mean that she got released right after this movie.

Otsuksuki clan members have only grown to be formidable opponents well into the Boruto series. The movie’s primary antagonist, Otsutsuki Toneri, proved to be one of the strongest enemies encountered by Naruto, battling against the protagonist in the movie’s final battle. Although Naruto was the strongest shinobi in the world after the War, he had to rely on his most powerful form to take down Toneri.

Kaguya Otsutsuki was the first Otsutsuki to land on the Earth’s surface. having two sons with a local Earthling. However, Kaguya betrayed her clan by consuming the fruit of the God Tree, becoming the first wielder of chakra on Earth. While giving birth to her twin sons, Hagoromo and Hamura, she passed down the chakra to them. Eventually, she gave in to her desire to possess all chakra and turned against her sons.

With a plan to absorb the chakra, she merged with the God Tree and became the Ten-Tails herself. Hagoromo and Hamura ended up sealing the beast’s chakra using Six Paths – Chibaku Tensei and creating a celestial body known as the Moon.

During the Fourth Great Ninja War, Kaguya was revived through Madara Uchiha, whom Black Zetsu manipulated since Hashirama defeated Uchiha. Hagoromo guides Naruto and Sasuke to seal her in the moon-like mass once again. However, fans speculate that she might have been released in The Last: Naruto the Movie.

The Last: Naruto the Movie was one of the only movies in the series that Masashi Kishimoto worked on. The story centered around Otsutsuki Toneri, a descendent of Otsutsuki Hamura, who wanted to destroy Earth, believing that the inhabitants had tainted the original teachings of the Sage and despised humanity for weaponizing chakra.

He made the Moon fall on Earth in bits and pieces, and a team from the Hidden Leaf Village was assigned the mission to stop the Moon from falling out of its orbit and onto the Earth. Meanwhile, Toneri was pursuing Hinata, who was promised to him at an early age. Hinata had to follow Toneri to save her sister, who had been kidnapped by him earlier. After a long fight, the showdown came down between Toneri and Naruto.

While fighting on the Moon’s surface, Toneri used the technique ‘Golden Wheel Rebirth Explosion’ to crush Naruto, but the latter managed to avoid it. However, the Moon got split in half following this maneuver. After Toneri was defeated by Naruto, the Moon returned to its original shape due to Kurama’s chakra.

Fans have widely speculated that the Moon split in half could be the same mass in which Naruto and Sasuke sealed Kaguya. This led to the belief that Toneri’s attack could have released Kaguya, which could result in her return in the upcoming Boruto series.
