    Naruto & Sasuke Vs. Momoshiki

    This one is often cited as one of the best fights in the series, and for good reason. It's always a thrill to see these two powerful shinobi throw hands, whether they're working together or opposing each other. In this case, the strength of their bond as adults is clear - as is their straight-up physical strength.

    Momoshiki is a terrifying opponent who can absorb any chakra-based moves sent his way. This means that Naruto and Sasuke can't rely on many of their usual moves. They're nearly defeated, but with quick thinking and brute strength, they make it through.

    Also, while the fight is mostly about Naruto and Sasuke, there's a great moment where Boruto gets to do a Parent and Child Rasengan with his dad.

    Naruto & Sasuke Vs. Isshiki

    This is the battle that Boruto fans have been waiting for. As of this writing, the most recent episode was 216, and the fight isn't over yet - but it's such an important one that we can't leave it off of the list. Isshiki the strongest foe that Naruto and Sasuke have had to face, which is why Naruto has to access Baryon Mode. This mode, comparable to nuclear fusion, uses Naruto and Kurama's chakra to create a new form of energy. It's immensely powerful, but it has a downside - it can decrease the user's lifespan. Will Baryon Mode be enough to defeat Isshiki?

    Naruto & Sasuke Vs. Jigen

    Naruto and Sasuke are among the most powerful ninja in the series, so it's interesting to see them be outmatched. When the two take on Jigen in another dimension, they do some serious damage, but they aren't able to fully defeat him. Jigen is able to shrug off most of Naruto and Sasuke's attacks using his black rods, which he can also use to impale them. Ultimately, despite Naruto and Sasuke pulling off some of their best moves, he manages to seal Naruto in a teapot. Meanwhile, all Sasuke can do is escape. But Jigen's own body, which is a vessel for Isshiki, has limits, and is nearly destroyed by the strain of battle.

    Sasuke Vs. Kinshiki

    You might think that a clash between Sasuke and a member of the Otsutsuki clan would revolve around wild jutsu, but this fight is actually pretty simple. It's resolved through sick sword fighting. Kinshiki's sword is glowing like a lightsaber, but Sasuke is handling his more ordinary sword with expertise. Add the spooky atmosphere of Kaguya's temple and you have one excellent fight.

    New Team 7 Vs. Boro

    With Naruto sealed in another dimension, Boruto, Sarada, Mitsuki and Kawaki have to take on Boro themselves. Boro is a cult leader who fights using Dark Cloud, a scientifically created virus that can shut a victim's body down within minutes. Using antibodies obtained via Mitsuki's snake, the group is able to deal with the virus and defeat Boro. One cool moment is when Boro is mocking Sarada for her supposedly imminent defeat, and she responds by blowing fire in his face. Another cool moment is when she slams a Chidori straight into his core, causing his body to mutate.

    But the real standout is when Boruto's Kama evolves, and he's taken over by Momoshiki's consciousness. This allows him to deal with finishing blow.

    Kashin Koji Vs. Isshiki

    Kashin Koji is a clone of Jiraiya who was created with the sole purpose of destroying Isshiki. When the two of the face off, he isn't able to carry out his mission, but he's at least able to get Isshiki to emerge from his vessel, Jigen.

    His intended method failed due to Isshiki's doujutsu Sukunahikona, but it was incredibly clever - rather than created flames with chakra, he summoned natural flames that Ishhiki wouldn't have been able to absorb. His strategic thinking is part of what makes this fight so great, even if it ends in a draw.
