What is Jougan? The Jougan Its Abilities & Powers

Boruto Jougan

After the journey Naruto ends, his son, Boruto Uzumaki, comes to take the place of the story and continue his father’s legacy. Boruto will undeniably have outstanding and distinctive abilities that only he can manifest.

In part, with episode 15 of Boruto being released, Uzumaki’s Dōjutsu has also been revealed, and many viewers and fans wonder about its capabilities.


Dojutsu is an eye technique and a kind of Ninjutsu where a person gathers the body’s energy to extract greater energy and use it as a power to protect, fight, and defend oneself.

The author introduces a new dojutsu, marking the beginning of Boruto’s journey toward learning and adapting to his powers. We might see some similarities with Naruto, especially regarding handling and controlling their powers.


To know more about Boruto’s abilities, here are some details that will help you understand its history and potential capacity.

What is Jougan?

Boruto Activated Jougan During Fight with Mitsuki vs Nue

In a particular scene, Nue’s chakra triggered Boruto, revealing the new dojutsu, Jougan. The term refers to “pure eye,” Its structure is quite similar to Naruto’s eyes when he senses evil chakra or releases his darkest side.

Aside from this, Jougan also gives emotion-sensing abilities to Boruto. He may have inherited this ability because Naruto has experienced the same thing with his mother. It might be a bit confusing because there is no trace of Byakugan’s power, but when his eyes changed during the fight.



Although it has been confirmed Jougan is not a permanent ability, and it won’t be able to be triggered again, it is still debatable, for it can determine the key point in the chakra system. It has also been said that it has the same features as Byakugan but is more powerful.

However, unlike Naruto’s capability to detect evil chakra, some people think that Jougan features more of a space-time teleportation technique due to the moment the Boruto opened and entered through the portals.

There are also some theories about Nue being relevantly connected to Nue and the different dimensions where Nue came from. Being able to travel through dimensions is yet to be one of the most exceptional powers an individual can have. Once the Jougan is activated, he can see the invisible connection between the two dimensions.

The best thing about it is that there might be additional abilities to be revealed, and Jougan is just the first one shown in this phase. Some say that Jougan will only be automatically activated if there is an appearance of Nue. Therefore, seeing more of Nue in the upcoming episodes is possible. You Can check out that scene where,

As stated earlier, Toneri informed us that Jougan refers to “pure eye” which means that is a part of the Otsutsuki Clan’s dojutsu. It is somehow in line with Byakugan, inne-Sharingan, and Rinnegan. Hence, this episode also proved that the Otsutsuki Clan is still alive so there would be high chances of more mighty opponents.


In the movie, Toneri said that Boruto has the Star of Hope, making him a destined hero. It is also said that the combined power of the seal of Hagoromo as well as Hamura has been transferred to Buroto and it gives him the power to purify the evil chakra and save the world by strengthening humanity.

We have yet to see how Boruto will cope with the difficulties of adjusting and controlling his newly gained powers and perceiving the ability of his Jougan. We can probably say that Sasuke Uchiha can teach and guide him on how to use it, for Sasuke is the only one who can access the inter-dimension and read secret scrolls. Toneri Otsutsuki can also help because he is familiar with this dojutsu.

All the information stated above is solely based on what is already released to the media. These sources are none other than one of the many animators of Boruto. Remember that they thoroughly said that Jougan’s overall concept is incomplete, and endless possibilities exist. That’s why there are taking their time, for they want to ensure they created the right and perfect abilities for Boruto.


There is no need to overly assume its outcome or think beyond the norms and expectations. If you are excited and thrilled about “pure eye,”.
