First I want to say I didn’t think of this theory I saw it from a You tuber Ace Operative “about the nue part” but I will eleborate on it and also Boruto’s eye. A nue is what Boruto’s creature is speculated to be influenced after. Nue (鵺, 鵼, 恠鳥, or 奴延鳥) is a legendary Japanese yōkai or mononoke. Appearing in the Heike Monogatari, it has the face of a monkey, the legs of a tiger , the body of a Japanese Raccoon Dog and the front half of a snake for a tail.

A yokai (ghost, phantom, strange apparition) are a class of supernatural monsters, spirits and demons in Japanese folklore. The word yōkai is made up of the kanji for “bewitching; attractive, calamity” and “spectre; apparition; mystery; suspicious”. Source:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y%C5%8Dkai

Mononoke are vengeful spirits (onryo), dead spirits (shiryo), live spirits (ikiryo), or spirits in Japanese classical literature and folk religion that were said to do things like possess individuals and make them suffer, cause disease, or even cause death.                       Source:-  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mononoke

Now i want to elaborate I think Boruto eyes is influenced based upon the pineal gland. Now the pineal gland is considered to be a third eye which is believed to allow you to see the unaware. And many people who claim to achieve the unlocking of the pineal gland claim they see evil spirits. Which will explain why Boruto saw the purple chakra on people.

Also would explain why Edo Tensei summoning have that black eye could correspond with Boruto’s black eye.

Also in some cultures the color blue could mean spirituality. We know on the symbol it showed on the seal before Boruto summoned whatever it was we saw a flower and a eye. So the eye on the flower could be symbolism for the pineal glad, aka Boruto’s third eye. The Blue Lotus in Buddhism is the symbol of the victory of the spirit over the senses, of intelligence and wisdom, of knowledge. It is generally represented as a partially opened bud, whose center is unseen, the embodiment of the ‘perfection of wisdom’. The Blue Lotus of the Nile was the most sacred of plants, prized above all others. The plant was associated with the sun god Ra as the bringer of light.

  1. What if like Sasuke, as he progresses so does his kekkei genkei, for Sauske during his fight with Haku where Sausuke’s sharingan “first activated” he had 3 “pedals”, when he’s up against Orochimaru he has 4 and in his fight with Naruto he receives his last two pedals. later we find out Sasuke awakend his during the Uchiha massacre, like his daughter did in Boruto her sharingan only has two. I’m excited, we get to see Boruto build up a new kekkei genkei, unlike with others where they are explained as the fight goes on, or as with the sharingan where we’ve always seen a step ahead because Itachi, and Kakashi have been a big part of the series.
