To my understanding, people with the Kurama’s genetics have whiskers.

Kinkaku (3 Whiskers) – Ate Kurama’s flesh.

Ginkaku (3 Whiskers) – Ate Kurama’s flesh.

Naruto Uzumaki (3 Whiskers) – Born from Kurama’s jinchuriki.

Boruto Uzumaki (2 Whiskers) – Born from Kurama’s jinchuriki.

Himawari Uzumaki (2 Whiskers) – Born from Kurama’s jinchuriki.

Now here’s the question, if that’s the case, then why does Boruto Uzumaki and Himawari Uzumaki have 1 less whisker? Does that mean their whiskers are inherited not from Naruto Uzumaki being Kurama’s jinchuriki, but from Naruto Uzumaki himself?

Also, that means Senju Mito’s children should have 3 whiskers too, Nawaki and Tsunade then would have 2 whiskers, but that’s not the case for some reason.

Boruto Uzumaki and Himawari Uzumaki were in Hinata during pregancy, they didn’t have the influence for as long during development.

Naruto probably just got it concentrated since a couple Uzamaki have developed with Kurama around.


  1. I guess Mito Uzumaki had already given birth before she became the Nine tails Jinchuriki..,so there was no chance of her children or grandchildren to acquire the whisker marks.
    As for Boruto and Himawari, their mother-Hinata, herself is not a Jinchuriki (unlike in the case of Naruto), so they only got 2 whisker marks from their father’s genes.
    That’s all I can think of. So yeah if anyone can contradict it, please feel free to do it.

  2. In my opinion; only the people from uzumaki clan which blended their chakra with kurama’s have the whiskers.In Kushina and Mito’s situation kurama is in prison in their bodies and doesn’t share chakra with them but in naruto’s situation they became friends and naruto blended kurama’s chakra with his. So he has the whiskers also boruto and himawari are from a jinchuriki who blended chakra with kurama. And if you ask about naruto’s birth and why he has whiskers while children because the only way for a jinchuriki to give birth is to free kurama’s sealing. Again in my opinion, in that case kushina and kurama’s chakra are blended so naruto could have the whiskers

    • Hey..i watch the apisode when naruto parent lock kurama inside him..but before that happen naruto already had 3 whiskers when he born..not because kurama he had the whiskers..u guys should watch the episode again.
