"Monsters" (怪物, Bakemon) is episode 198 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.


Naruto asks Kawaki about Delta's identity, and Kawaki confirms she's a Kara Inner. Delta is aware of who Naruto is, and asks him to step aside, which he refuses. Kawaki warns them of Inner's strength, and Boruto notes his apprehension. Delta decides to kill Naruto, who instructs Boruto and Kawaki on what to do. Naruto and Delta begin fighting, exchanging physical blows, and until Naruto gets an opening. He attempts to land a Rasengan, but Delta absorbs it with her modified eyes. She attacks him by transforming her leg, similar to Kawaki, and confirms her body has been extensively enhanced with scientific ninja tools. Naruto dons his chakra cloak and resumes fighting. He blocks her kick, but Delta transforms her leg, injuring Naruto. He breaks the leg with chakra arms, and she accuses him of being as much of a monster as she is while regenerating her leg. Concerned, Boruto tries intervening, but Naruto warns him against it. He threatens Delta, goading her into keeping engaged with him. He asks Delta what Kawaki is to her, and she realises he's trying to trick her into revealing information. She removes the spike on him, and he stands up, healing the wound. Boruto is relieved, and Kawaki stresses they need to leave. Naruto and Delta resume fighting, and when they're locked in place, Delta releases the Rasengan she absorbed from her eye. She makes use of her modified body to attack. Naruto destroys her legs with a Lava Release Rasenshuriken, but she merely regrows them, so he strategises how he should hit her. Boruto wants to create an opening for Naruto to attack, but Kawaki reminds him of Naruto's orders, and explains that by staying away, it allows Naruto to go all out, and adds that Naruto is the one leading the fight, as to keep attacks from coming in their direction. Delta comments on Naruto's abilities, but when he suggests her to surrender, she unleashes beams from her eyes. Naruto dodges them, and Kawaki is concerned by them, explaining they were designed to counter regenerative abilities. Naruto deduces such an attack must be chakra taxing, but Delta counters that it only has to hit once. She tries getting close to him to land her beams, but he keeps dodging. She spots the children through her drone, and sends a beam their way. Naruto punches her, knocking the beam off course. She attacks Boruto, throwing him Naruto's way, and grabs Himawari. Boruto activates his Kāma and throws a Vanishing Rasengan her way. Despite it disappearing, Delta is able to spot it with her drone, and absorbs it. She throws Himawari in the air to force Naruto getting in the way of her beams. When the smoke clears, all are shocked to see that Kawaki blocked the beams with his transformed arm. Kawaki tells Boruto they're even on the vase. Delta is baffled by Kawaki's attitude, growing more furious at the situation.
