Naruto Uzumaki has made quite the name for himself, but he was better known back in the day for his lewd pranks. Even before he became a ninja, Naruto was liable to pull all sorts of pranks on the Hidden Leaf, and he was unafraid to use his self-made Sexy no Jutsu on anyone unsuspecting. Even the wise Third Hokage fell for the jutsu back then, so you can see why the technique has become so popular.
Although his use of the Shadow Clone Jutsu ended up being the more elaborate example of Naruto's unusual use of jutsu, the fact that he was able to come up with his own transformation was a smart way that Kishimoto hinted that Naruto is better than everyone gave him credit for. Struggling to use a clone jutsu was one thing, but he was often ridiculed for having no skills at all.
But one look at the Sexy Jutsu proves this was not the case as it's entirely unique to him! How could someone so bad at jutsu in general be able to craft one for himself? Either way, its bold and stunning visage has been super popular over the years! Now artist @ladybell_tyan (who you can find more work from on Instagram here) has shared a stark reminder as to why with a bold recreation of Naruto Uzumaki's famous Sexy Jutsu. You can check it out below:

The Sexy Jutsu hasn't faded away in the slightest over the years as it most recently made a reappearance during Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Not only has Boruto Uzumaki picked up the technique from his father, but he's willing to use it in order to get out of a jam. That means that there's still an opportunity to play around like the old days even if the technique has gotten less...bold over the years.
What did you think when you saw Naruto's Sexy Jutsu in action for the first time? How do you feel about its appearances throughout the franchise as a whole? How odes it compare to Boruto's version of his father's now famous technique?
