The Best 'Boruto' Villains

If you're not watching Boruto, the sequel series to Naruto that centers around Naruto Uzumaki's son, you're missing out on some seriously great villain action. While not every bad guy matches up to what the original series had to offer, the best Boruto villains are just as badass, if not moreso. Many of them have connections to former villains - for example, Shizuma Hoshigaki is a relative of Kisame's. Some are even former allies - who knew that Ao was going to join the villain's side? 

This is a list of all Boruto villains. Your missions, should you choose to accept it, is to vote up the best ones and vote down the ones that don't measure up. If you're anime-only, you may not be familiar with all of these villains just yet - Team Kara has yet to make their debut in the series. Rest assured, they're some of the most fascinating villains to appear so far.
