Naruto: Shichiyo Gaiden IX
Chapter 9: Friends turned Enemies
The three giant serpents make their way through the village, slithering over buildings and devouring people, shinobi, men, women and children alike.
“This isn't good, this isn't good!” Kankuro exclaims, terrified.
Shikamaru looks at Naruto who clinches his fist and has a look of rage in his eyes. All of a sudden he goes bursting through the window, fully set with his golden chakra cloak and he rams himself right through one of the snakes, all the way in the center of the village. The snake drops to the ground, with a huge hole through the center of it's body.
“This is way to simple an attack, there has to be.” Shikamaru is cut off by two shinobi barging through the door frantically.
“Shikamaru-sama, we have a problem!” They both say.
“Yeah, big snakes, we got it already.” Kankuro says sarcastically.
“No, it's not that, it's much worse.” One of them says, at that moment, both Kankuro and Shikamaru pay close attention as to what the two shinobi have to say.
Naruto then makes six clones, surrounding another one the snakes in a circle. All of the clones and Naruto hold out their hands towards the snake while extending large chakra arms around them. “Kansai Kekkai Rasengan!”
At that moment, a huge ball of chakra surrounds the snake and then with a burst of energy, the chakra begins rotating like billions of blades within the ball and the snake is obliterated within the sphere.
“Naruto!” Shikamaru yells running towards Naruto.
“I'm busy right no--”
“Let the Anbu handle this, we have much bigger problems.” Shikamaru says darkly.
“What do you mean?” Naruto asks curiously.
“There's two shinobi going through the village destroying and killing everybody in sight.” Shikamaru says, trying to hide the rest of the truth behind his statement.
“Well then I'll beat them to a--”
“It's Kakashi and Guy.” Shikamaru blurts out in a low tone, cutting Naruto off. Naruto's eyes widen in utter, horrifying shock.
In another part of the village, Kakashi and Guy take out several shinobi in mere seconds. Several of the shinobi hesitate when fighting the two, the older generation primarily because of the psychological trauma of fighting their former comrades, and the younger generation for fear of the reputation of these two renown shinobi.
“Everybody, stay at a distance, from the one in the green, if you get close to him you're done.” One of the shinobi says.
“What about the other one?” another on says.
“All I can tell you to do is pray.” The shinobi says seriously. Suddenly Kakashi and Guy launch out and with blinding speed, they get behind the group of shinobi. Kakashi charges up a Raikiri, while Guy's fist travels at such speed and power, it practically ignites in flames.
As the shinobi turn to see the two zombies behind them, they freeze in fear, unable to move. At that moment, Guy is sent crashing through the ground, creating a moderate sized crater, and Kakashi's Raikiri stops an inch away from the face of one shinobi. Naruto stands over Guy and Shikamaru stands at mid ranged, in front of the shinobi and Kakashi's position. Shikamaru's shadow binds Kakashi and as he restrains him, he makes another seal, and sends another shadow towards all the Konoha shinobi (six of them).
“Oshi-eiei Kage” The shadow possessing Kakashi extends, pushing Kakashi back, while the shadow possessing the six Konoha shinobi pulls them in and places them in back of Shikamaru.
Note: Oshi-eiei Kage (Push-pull shadow).
Naruto smiles at Shikamaru and then he realizes Guy's body parts beginning to reassemble and he leaps away from him, and gets next to Shikamaru. Shikamaru and Naruto look at Kakashi and Guy seriously. Shikamaru releases his shadow on the shinobi and Kakashi in order to reserve his chakra. Naruto looks straight into the eyes of Kakashi and Guy and sees the souls sucked right out of them.
“They're being completely possessed by that damn jutsu!” Naruto yells with rage. “Talking to them won't work.” He admits painfully.
“It shouldn't matter, we know how they fight...the only problem is, they'll be stronger then they've ever been before.” Shikamaru says.
“What do you mean?” Naruto asks.
“They're souls are bound to those forms no matter what, they have an unlimited amount of chakra. Before Kakashi's chakra reserves were not much more then my own which placed restrictions on him, but now...he has the ability to use those famed 1000 jutsu of his a million times over if he so wished. And Guy, his time in the Eight Inner Gates is virtually limitless, and opening the eight gate has no consequence now.”
A squad of Anbu drop down beside the fray of Konoha shinobi and the Hokage. “Hokage-sama, the final snake has been dealt with, but we're having problems dealing with the last shinobi who infiltrated the village?” One of them says.
“The last?” Naruto asks.
“Yeah, the sensors picked up three shinobi presences entering the village, Kakashi and Guy and then there was a third, we suspect that he was the one who summoned the snakes and Kabuto must have summoned these guys from--”
“No that's wrong.” Naruto says cutting off Shikamaru. “There's four shinobi including Kakashi-sensei and Bushy-brow-sensei.”
“What do you mean?” The Anbu shinobi asks.
“There's Kakashi-sensei, Bushy-brow-sensei, and two others who wreak of vial chakra.” Naruto says.
“That's right, in that form of yours you can sense the malevolence in others, the last one must be concealing his chakra, but if that's the case then all of this is just a decoy...and what a decoy it is. The enemy knows that Naruto's the only person who actually stands a chance against these two shinobi in their current state. The person concealing his movements must be after something else.” Shikamaru says.
“Well then we--” Naruto is cut off with a powerful punch straight into his stomach by Guy and he goes flying back. The impact of the punch contained such force that the backlash winds knocked back all the other shinobi. Naruto goes crashing through a building, and the rubble falls over top of him. Shikamaru lands on his feet, however, he's met by Kakashi and another Raikiri. Shikamaru reacts with admirable reflexes and ducks Kakashi's attack. He attempts to sweep Kakashi's leg but Kakashi jumps up and counters with a roundhouse to Shikamaru's face. Shikamaru manages to block it, but he still is knocked back.
“Damn it, my taijutsu is better but I'm still at a big disadvantage in that field compared to Kakashi. Not to mention that Raikiri of his.” Shikamaru express with worry.
As Naruto gets up from under the building that collapsed over him he brushes himself off. “Damn that hurt. If I hadn't moved at the last second my ribs would've been shattered, even in this cloak.” Naruto leaps back as he see's Guy glowing in a white, luminescent aura, the form taken when the eighth gate is activated. He places himself between Guy and the other shinobi, “Get out of here, and go find that other shinobi. He's the target!” Naruto commands.
“But sir, we don't know where to look, we can't sense him, could you tell us where he is?” On of the Anbu soldiers asks.
Before Naruto can open his mouth he ducks from a punch thrown by Guy and, once again the backlash winds are powerful from and they knock several shinobi back and even Naruto is forced to shift backwards from the power. “*Damn, I can't help them out at all, I'll have to focus on Bushy-brow-sensei, this sucks*” Naruto thinks to himself.
~At the Shinobi Academy~
The gray skinned, demonic shinobi stands over several dead bodies of shinobi and holds another in his left hand. He stands in front of a bunch of children and smiles cynically with his razor sharp teeth, his yellow eyes piercing at the children dreadfully.
“You know what I love more?” The shinobi says in a devilish tone, licking his lips. The kids look terrified into the shinobi's eyes. The shinobi laughs softly and bites out the neck of the shinobi he holds in his hand and then begins sucking out the chakra of the shinobi and then drops him. He looks at the children and smiles again “I love the taste of immature chakra more then fully developed chakra. The chakra of children is sweeter then the bitter adults. I mean they're so uptight, don't you agree? Come on, you're kids don't you think adults can be so annoyingly strict sometimes.” The shinobi says laughing. Some of the girls begin to cry in the back and the boys try to act tougher in the face of the devilish shinobi. “Oh come now, don't starts acting all tough, you'll ruin you're precious chakra.” he says as he begins walking towards them. “Hmm?” The shinobi stops in his tracks as two puppets drop down between the kids and the shinobi. “What's this?”
“Boushi Kenhandou!” Koichi comes down over the shinobi, spinning at a rapid pace, a white glow surrounding him, and he lets down an ax kick straight down on top of the shinobi.
Note: Boushi Kenhandou (Spinning Blade kick)
The shinobi looks up with an unimpressed look and makes two seals, and suddenly several spikes rise from his back, replacing his wings.
“Damn it.” Koichi retracts his kick and lands, and the shinobi releases extends spikes out in front of himself but Koichi backs away avoiding them and gets beside the two puppets. At that moment a slicing wind current races towards the demonic shinobi from his rear and he doesn't turn, he simply makes the dragon seal and his changes form again, this time, covering his entire body with thick scales, and the winds divert right off his body. Ryoko then drops down besides Koichi.
“Great, more uptight people.” The shinobi says disappointed. “Guess it can't be helped.” The shinobi runs towards the genin with smiling cynically and the two puppets meet him half way and begin attacking with their weapons. The shinobi blocks the blade of one of the puppets with his arm, still being as hard as steel and smacks it away with ease and then does the same with the other. Koichi appears on the left side of the shinobi and proceeds to sweep his leg, with a powerful kick. The shinobi reaches down quickly and grabs Koichi's leg. “Believe it or not I'm not stupid.”
In the tree where Koji hides, the voice of the shinobi behind him causes him to react with shock. The shinobi moved at such a speed, Koji couldn't comprehend. As Koji turns around and sees the shinobi his eyes widen. “Hi.” The shinobi says joyfully with a smile and he whips Koichi down, right onto Koji and both are knocked out of the tree and make impact on the ground hard.
“Koichi, Koji!” Ryoko yells seeing her comrades fall before her. The shinobi then appears in front of them once again. He looks past them and notices the children were gone.
“Ahh, you let the main course go! You're going to pay for that!” The shinobi says angrily rushing towards the three shinobi. Ryoko places herself in front of Koichi and Koji with her katana in a defensive manor. Another puppet appears before the three genin and intercepts the attack, forcing the shinobi to stop and move backwards. The red hair of the puppet flows in the wind and the middle of it's chest says “Scorpion”
“You guys did great distracting him, I'll take it from here.” Kankuro says standing on top of the academy, with his chakra strings linked to Sasori. The shinobi stares at Kankuro with an expression of mocking confusion on his face.
~In the Main District~
Shikamaru stands panting, still at a distance from Kakashi, while Naruto is at a deadlock with Guy, meeting his amazingly fast punches and kicks with equally as fast blocks and counters. Naruto punches Guy in the face and sends him tumbling backwards but the zombie gets up as if he felt nothing.
“Shuriken Kage Bushin no Jutsu!” Hundreds of shuriken rain down on Kakashi's body as Konohamaru appears besides Shikamaru.
“Shikamaru-nii-san, are you alright?” Konohamaru asks.
“Yeah, no matter how much training one does, fighting an opponent like Kakashi won't be an easy feat.” Shikamaru lectures.
“I received a message from the village on my way Kumo and I came straight back here...I can't believe what I'm seeing though.” Konohamaru says.
“Well, now that you're hear, I might actually stand a chance at winning. I'm going to need you to act as a distraction while I try to trap him, can you do that?”
“Yeah, but what about Naruto-nii-san?”
“He can handle himself for now, the quicker we get done with Kakashi the more time we'll have to help him.” Konohamaru nods and they prepare to act.
In an underground fortress, under Konoha, foot steps echo through the corridors, walking past several dead shinobi. In a single cell, containing one prisoner, the prisoner hears the foot steps and he begins to open his eyes. The footsteps come to a stop in front of the cell. The prisoner, sitting against the back wall in a white robe. His cell, containing a tag on it with the word seal on it confines him.
As the person appears before the prisoner her knocks on the bars of the cell and smiles. “Sasuke Uchiha?” He asks.
The prisoner, eyes open, lifts his head up slightly, his bloody red Sharingan, in full view looks at the shinobi. “Who wants to know?”
Ninpo: Ukio Enko (Ninja Art: Life Connection)
Origin: Sunagakure (After WWIV)
Description: Developed by Kankuro of Sunagakure, this technique grants temporary animation to an puppet/inanimate object via transfering a portion of one's own chakra into the puppet. Similar in a way to the Shadow Clone Jutsu, the puppet acts and moves of it's own will, however it's mind and vision are linked to the user and the puppet itself has no base intelligence beyond instinctual fighting. The jutsu lasts for a period of time pending on the amount of chakra transfered into puppet. Chakra used up in this technique takes longer to replenish and extracts large amounts on base activation alone and more so as the jutsu is continued to be used in one single day. As a result the more times activated in one day the more chakra consumed and the less time the puppet remains active.
Myaku Bushin (Pulsing Clone)
Developer: Mai Shichiyo
User(s): Mai Shichiyo, Koichi Shichiyo
Origin: Sunagakure (After WWIV)
Description: This is a taijutsu technique from the style Suuxe-sensu, created by Mai Shichiyo. In this technique the user releases a full body blast of chakra from their body and it takes the shape of the user. The technique isn't an actual clone, however, the chakra takes the shape of the user, which gives the appearance of such. The jutsu has three uses: One, to distract or frighten one's opponent. Two to force one's opponent backwards as the chakra is dense enough, at its lowest chakra requriment to shatter through a tree. The third use is to make the user faster for a brief moment in time, as the release of such a great force of chakra all at once, temporarily gives one an almost weightless form, but with the same density allowing them to move faster. This jutsu takes chakra control on top of having a high level of chakra.
Suuxe-sensu (Sway Style)
Rank: N/A (fighting style)
Developer: Mai Shichiyo
Users(s): Mai Shichiyo, Koichi Shichiyo
Origin: Sunagakure (After WWIV)
Description: Suuxe-sensu is the taijutsu fighting style developed by Sunagakure kunoichi Mai Shichiyo. In this style of fighting the user utilizes precice chakra control to line one's body with chakra. Derrived from Konoha's Hyuuga style, and the medical-nin fighting style of Chakra enhanced strength, the most basic of the techniques involves defensive circular movements meant to block and use an opponent's force against them. However when combined with chakra, the circular patterns become sharp and a circular block and be used as a blade. The few strikes and kicks used in this style are powerful. This style requires chakra control and large storages of chakra.
Kansai Kekkai Rasengan (Trapping Barrier Spiraling Sphere)
Developer: Naruto Uzumaki
User(s): Naruto Uzumaki
Origin: Konohagakure (After WWIV)
Description: This is another advancement of the Rasengan created by Naruto Uzumaki. In order for this technique to work, several shinobi as the radius perimeter of the jutsu is large then that of a normal Rasengan. In Naruto's case, he would summon shadow clones to assist him in preforming the jutsu. The group would then surround the intended target and entrap them in a sphere of chakra. They would then begin to rotate their chakra as if a normal Rasengan and the billions of rotating chakra blades within the jutsu would come to overshadow the target and anything within the barrier would be virtually obliterated. The primary use of this jutsu is to create an inescapable trap around several shinobi or one/few large opponents.
Oshi-eiei Kage (Push-pull shadow)
Developer: Shikamaru Nara
User(s): Shikamaru Nara, Shikaku Nara, Nara clan (advanced)
Origin: Konohagakure (During WWIV)
Description: This is a varriation of the Shadow Imitation jutsu, the funadamental jutsu of the Nara clan. The user would extend his/her shadow just like in the normal technique to one or several targets. The user can then forcefully push away or attract their targets, closer to them (via extending or retracting their shadow (s)). One could also preform both tasks simultaniously. The advantages of this jutsu is that, if an one's opponent is primarily close ranged fighter while the user is not, they can repel them and keep them in their more comfortable range. However, this jutsu requires advanced chakra control as the acts of extending and/or retracting while keeping your target attached, and you stationary is a difficult feet.
Boushi Kenhandou (Spinning Blade kick)
Developer: Mai Shichiyo
User(s): Mai Shichiyo, Koichi Shichiyo
Origin: Sunagakure (After WWIV)
Description: Part of the Suuex-sensu style, the user focues their chakra into legs and feet. While in the air they spin at a rapid pace, which would cause the white chakra to appear as if spinning around them. The user would then let down a powerful ax kick which holds two possible outcomes. The first out come, is if the user lands on their opponent with their foot, they will slice through whatever part of the body aimed for as the feet will possess the highest form of chakra control in the source of the blade. The second outcome would be if the user strikes with their shin, they will demonstrate a devestating force and power rather then a cutting affect.
