The Ōtsutsuki Clan are the overarching antagonists of Naruto: Shippuden and the main antagonists of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. They are an ancient clan of extremely powerful extraterrestial beings who many revere as gods. High-ranking members of the main branch travel out in search of life energy and consumption of planets.
For countless milleniums, the Ōtsutsuki Clan have traveled across dimensions to plant God Trees in order to harvest planets for their chakra.
A millennia ago, Kaguya and Isshiki were selected to set the God Tree on Earth and harvest its chakra fruit, sacrificing Kaguya to the Ten-Tails sapling in the process. Instead, Kaguya desired to take the chakra fruit for herself, betraying Isshiki in the process whom she almost killed. Isshiki survived, however, by possessing a neaby monk and continuing his operations undercover. Meanwhile, Kaguya, overtime grew close to humans and even got pregnant with her lover, but after being betrayed and losing faith in humanity, she imprisoned humanity in a dream world.
Later on Kaguya birthed two sons with powers on their own. Overtime they caught onto Kaguya's cruel ways and stopped her, sealing her away after a one month fight. This fight, however, would leave a devastating affect on nearby countries.
These are power-seeking creatures who don't understand the concept of love and follow the Ōtsutsuki will. Most of them see planets as nothing but "seedbeds" to destroy and transform into a chakra fruit. They tend to travel in pairs and use the weaker partner as a sacrifice to the tree. If they are endangered however, the more powerful partner will consume the weaker one.
They are mostly arrogant, cruel, selfish and don't believe in working hard for power, believing it is better to simply steal power from others. When faced with a threat, they will try to avert death by any means possible, and attempt to possess a nearby human and slowly take over their body.
The only full-blood Otsutsuki to experience love is Kaguya who betrayed them and grew fond of a group of humans, though she reverted back to her cruel ways after being betrayed by her lover.
The Ōtsutsuki's who were born on Earth are much less cruel and easily able to fit in with humans. Due to growing up on the planet, most of them wish to protect humans and live alongside them. The only known hybrid to become corrupted is Indra Ōtsutsuki who got tempted by Black Zetsu.
Full-blooded Ōtsutsuki's are humanoids with pale skin, colorless eyes and white hair, along with arched eye-brows. They each have differing horns coming out of their heads. They are known to wear white robes as well.
