One of the most formidable ninjas in the history of Masashi Kishimoto is the fourth Lord Hokage, Minato Namikaze. Naruto's father, who spawned several jutsu, including Rasengan, was gifted with formidable skills, one of which has apparently returned Boruto: Naruto the next generations.

Boruto Chapter 60 begins with Shikamaru, Sai, and Ibiki discussing the last of the Kara organization. The Seventh Hokage's advisor reveals that strange traces attributed to code have been found outside the walls of the Leaf Village travel immediately Brand to brand, a bit like the fourth Hokage with his Instant Transfer Kunai.

The yellow flash of the leaf, so called because of this technique, is used to mark the seal of the Flight of the lightning god on three-pronged kunai. By throwing them into enemy ranks, he was able to teleport across the battlefield instantly.

Apparently with a technique very similar to instant displacement, even code manages to move between the brands it uses. In Boruto Chapter 60, Kara's intern shows his "claw marks" for the first time to rescue Bug from Daemon's clutches.

What do you think of this very dangerous technique presented by code? Do you think it's inspired by the iconic Fourth Hokage? Flee or stay? Here the indecision is one of Boruto's protagonists.
