Zetsu

Background Information

Zetsu (ゼツ, Zetsu) is a member of Akatsuki and one of Obito Uchiha's most loyal subordinates. The black half is known as Black Zetsu (黒ゼツ, Kuro-Zetsu), while the white half was known as White Zetsu (白ゼツ, Shiro-Zetsu). White Zetsu, along with his many clone siblings, was created by Madara Uchiha using a living clone of Hashirama Senju and the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path. Madara implied that Yin–Yang Release was also involved in the creation of White Zetsu and his clone siblings. When Madara was on the verge of death, he infused a part of his will into White Zetsu, which created the second personality, Black Zetsu. This in turn made the complete Zetsu partially a clone of Madara, albeit weaker and partially a clone of Hashirama. With the creation of Black Zetsu from White Zetsu, Zetsu as he was afterwards known was created. Originally nothing but an imperfect clone of Hashirama’s cells, with the creation of his black half, Zetsu became a fully fledged ninja and served as Obito’s right hand inside Akatsuki up to the great war. Tasked with inteligence gathering and scouting, Zetsu became a crucial part of Obito’s strategy.

Abilities

Zetsu, as a clone made from Hashirama cells, possesses abilities linked to the laters DNA. He can merge with the ground and organic vegetal life and move within it at great speeds virtually undetected. Black Zetsu is also skilled chakra sensor. He can split himself in his two independent personalities, forming each a fully functional ninja. Both halfs also displayed the ability to use a rudimentary form of low rank Wood Release (up to A-Rank). In his case, this rudimentary form manifests itself through roots that he can create from the ground to attack his enemies. He lacks however, the ability to use normal wood techniques and can only use the root variation known to him. Two important abilities Zetsu uses are his cloning abilities and his spore abilities. He can create spores of himself who can lay dormant, leeched onto a ninja. These can be used to leech chakra from the ninja and create Zetsu clones who can be used to attack but also to give said chakra to the user/allies. The cloning abilities allows him to, through his spore abilities or direct contact, copy the chakra of an enemy and create a virtually identical copy of them.

Rank: D-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 10
Damage points: N/A
Description: This technique enables Zetsu to split his body into two: the white half and the black half. While separated, the two can act on their own and perform techniques. Each half when split grows a missing leg and body mass but do not grow a missing eye, ear or arm. The two halves can also use this technique to merge back into one entity.

Rank: A-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 30
Damage Points: N/A
Description: This technique allows White Zetsu to create clones of himself, which he is able to control and communicate with remotely. Unlike most clone techniques, these clones are not dispelled when they are dealt damage or killed. They can also be used with White Zetsu's Substitute Technique to assume the form of any individual that he has touched, right down to their unique chakra. The clones can be produced from earth or organic vegetal matter as well as through Zetsu's spore technique. These clones can use ay technique the user knows up to A-Rank or, when they are used for the substitute technique, up to A-Rank of the basic 5 the copied ninja can use.

(Kagero) Mayfly
Rank:A-Rank
Type:Supplementary
Range:Short-Long
Chakra cost:30
Damage points:N/A
Description: This technique allows the user to merge his body with the ground and plants and to move at very high speeds through the networks of roots and water veins. Although once in the ground the travel speed is, indeed, fast, merging and emerging with and from the ground is not very fast. This allows the user to conceal his presence completely, making it almost impossible to detect him, although it was noted that Byakugan users can still spot the user. If an underground technique of higher rank is used, its possible to stop the user or force him to surface.
Note: Can only be used by Zetsu bios.
Note: Usable 5 times per Battle.

(Ne Tsūshin no Jutsu) - Root Communication Technique
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Long
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: N/A

Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: N/A
Description: Several White Zetsu clones merge into a single large being with their venus flytrap-like middles opened up. The merged white zetsu have a resiliance to Naruto's Nine Tailed Chakra modes Yang chakra influence preventing them from becoming Tree's. While highly durable (can endure up to B-rank techniques with no damage) , this form is also very slow and not very agile.

(Narikawari no Jutsu) - Clone Body Substitution technique
Rank: A-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 30
Damage points: N/A
Description: This technique allows the White Zetsu to create an exact copy of the opponent, down to their chakra, using his Parasite clones. Zetsu needs to have absorbed some of the targeted ninja's chakra with either a chakra absorption technique or his Spore Technique. However it will not be strong enough to fight an extended battle, so its primary purpose is for the function of a diversion. When the clone dies the appearance retains that of the person created until Zetsu releases it. The clones can use the Basic 5 Elements the original can, albeit only up to A-rank, plus all of White Zetsu's abilities.

(Hōshi no Jutsu) - Spore Technique
Rank: S-Rank
Type: Attack/Supplementary
Range: Short-Long
Chakra Cost: 40 (-30 per turn)
Damage Points: N/A
Description: Zetsu is able to plant spores in his opponents' bodies, unbeknownst to the opponents themselves (including Chakra Sensors, Doujutsu users, etc). These spores re triggered upon the users will or after a set amount of time and grow into a white mass of a variable number of clones of White Zetsu, that engulf the target, restricting their movement and absorbing their chakra as they grow. This chakra can then be transferred to someone else, provided the white clones of Zetsu were able to make contact with the person whose chakra is to be replenished. Through this technique, the user is able to create up to 4 clones. The clones can then be used for the clone body substitution technique or for simply combat.
Note: While the targets chakra is being absorbed, he is limited to A-Ranks and below.
