In Boruto Episode 224, Iwabe makes it clear he needs to be the following Hokage. Wasabi, although, laments how her household is not one from a high-powered bloodline, thus she might by no means dream of being in such a place. Merely put, the position’s out of attain and to her, “lowly” individuals reminiscent of her clan and Iwabe’s do not deserve that accolade.

This angers Iwabe, who then makes use of his hammer and Earth jutsu to generate an enormous rock formation to carve. He hates listening to Wasabi confess her household has exaggerated her powers, and that the scroll her grandmother gifted her actually would not have an enormous monster cat inside. It is all doubt, derision and an absence of perception, which basically has a self-loathing Wasabi insulting her household to the purpose her mother and father cowl her grandma’s ears within the viewers.
