Much like his father in his youth, Boruto is exuberant, brash, inattentive, and heedless to formality or social standings. Similarly, he appears to exhibit an inclination toward pranks. Like his father, his reason for pulling pranks is also to seek attention; in this case, it's from his father, as Naruto's role as Hokage appears to be draining on his personal life. Like his father and late paternal grandmother, Bolt also inherited a verbal tic: "dattebasa." Boruto is the son of Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyuuga.
