    [Ability] Sage Mode

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Sage Mode



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Sage Mode is the direct result of blending Natural Energy in to the users own chakra flow which empowers his chakra drastically by adding a 3rd part to the normal mixture of physical and spiritual energies. Three variations exist and were shown so far. The first one is linked to the Toads of Mount Myobokuzan who first taught it to Jiraya and then to Naruto. The second one is linked to the Snakes of Ryūchi Cave and was first introduce by Kabuto but revealed to have been discovered by Orochimaru. The thirds instance was showcased by Hashirama Senju and was linked to his own Mokuton KG.

    In essence, once the user activates sage mode he forcefully assimilates natural energy from his surroundings into himself, empowering himself for a given time. This time is limited because the user is incapable of continuously absorb natural energy as he moves about, making it so that the portion of natural energy he used to enter sage mode will be the one he will spend to sustain it which, since its a finite amount, gives for a temporary activation. The Toads of Mount Myobokuzan have come up with an alternative to this issue. The two elder Toad Sages, Shima and Fukasaku merge with the user's body while sitting on his shoulders. By doing this they effectively stay motionless while they gather natural energy and transmit it to the user who can then sustain sage mode for long periods of time. Orochimaru also tried to go around this issue but with a different approach. He used Jugo's cells (whose clan has the ability to passively gather natural energy into their bodies at all times) to make his body able to absorb natural energy at all times. Off course this doesn't mean he is always in sage mode but does allow him to enter sage mode without having to meditate to gather a given amount of Natural Energy. It also allows him to sustain Sage Mode for a longer period. Kabuto took this ability to another level and was able to sustain Sage Mode even longer by having his body merged with Karin's DNA (which gave him additional life force), Jugo's DNA, Orochimaru's DNA and Snake DNA. All of this manipulation of his body made Kabuto able to sustain Sage Mode for long periods of time with much less effort. Hashirama on the other hand used his Mokuton KG to absorb Natural energy and focus it onto his body, entering Sage Mode. While his Sage mode is long lasting, it is still finite.

    Toad Sage Mode abilities
    • Users Physical Strength and Durability increases, as well as his speed and stamina.
    • The user is able to learn the Frog Kata fighting style allowing to user naturally energy as an extension to their body, increasing the reach and power of their physical attacks.
    • The users Taijutsu gains +25 damage, main elemental affinity gains +20 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +10 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage while Sage Mode is active (in Minato's case, the boost is significantly lower, Taijutsu gains +10 damage, main elemental affinity gains +15 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +5 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage.)
    • While Sage Mode is active, the user is able to passively sense the world around them through the flow of natural energy and chakra, giving the user enhanced reflexes and perceptions
    • While Sage Mode is active, the user will take little damage from techniques C-Rank and below, and B-Rank and below Taijutsu (in Minato's case, the resistance is lower with him being only able to take little damage from techniques D-Rank and below, and C-Rank and below Taijutsu).


    ( Sennin Modo ) – Sage Mode
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra cost: 70 (adds 350 chakra, consumes -15 per turn)
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: The user, by standing perfectly still in a meditative focus (user must stay still for 1 turn), will draw into him natural energy which he will then blend with their own chakra adding a new dimension of power to it. By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). This variation is know as perfect Sage Mode and was first used by Naruto who could perfectly balance natural energy with chakra due to his unusual large chakra supply. The user gains horizontal slit pupils and orange markings around his eyes, reminiscent of Toads and pertain to the users connection with them. Their physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability dramatically increase, with more emphasis on strength, endurance and stamina rather than speed and reflexes. The user can harness the natural energy surrounding them, turning it into an extension of their body, which increases the reach of their attacks through the use of Frog Kata. While sage mode is active, minor wounds heal slowly as time passes and the user gains the ability to passively sense his surroundings through the natural energy, in a similar but more precise and enhanced way as normal chakra sensing. Unlike other techniques, the user will not feel any depletion in terms of stamina and energy and will feel revitalized and strong while its active. However, once it ends, the exhaustion of sustaining such a delicate chakra balance takes over the user until he can recover. While Sage Mode is active, the user will take little damage from techniques C-Rank and below, and B-Rank and below Taijutsu. When Sage mode ends the user then experiences physical exhaustion reducing their capabilities the following turn preventing him from using techniques above A-Rank and Taijutsu above B-Rank. A user can prevent this by using the amphibian technique, using shadow clone to collect natural energy and dispelling them before sage mode ends or by ending sage mode before it times out. Taijutsu gains +25 damage, main elemental affinity gains +20 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +10 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage.
    Note: Sage Mode lasts for a total of 5 turns, unless a clone or amphibian technique is used.
    Note: if user uses Frog Katas length of Sage mode is cut by two turns.
    Note: This variation can only be used by those with the Toad contract

By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). This variation is know as an imperfect variation of Sage Mode and is only used by Jiraya who, despite his large chakra supply and skill, was unable to fully control the infusion of natural energy in his body. The user gains horizontal slit pupils and orange markings around his eyes, red markings on his face, much like a war paint, webbed hands and feet, slightly bulkier physique, warts on his nose (which becomes bulkier and uglier) all reminiscent of Toads and pertain to Jiraya's connection with them. Their physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability dramatically increase, with more emphasis on strength, endurance and stamina rather than speed and reflexes. The user can harness the natural energy surrounding them, turning it into an extension of their body, which increases the reach of their attacks through the use of Frog Kata.

    Note: This variation can only be used by Jiraya bios

    ( Sennin Modo ) – Sage Mode
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra cost: 70 (adds 200 chakra, consumes -15 per turn)
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: The user, by standing perfectly still in a meditative focus (user must stay still for 1 turn), will draw into him natural energy which he will then blend with their own chakra adding a new dimension of power to it. By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). This variation is unique to Namikaze Minato and is otherwise akin of the one know as perfect Sage Mode which was first used by Naruto who could perfectly balance natural energy with chakra due to his unusual large chakra supply. Minato, however, doesn't have enough chakra to fully master the technique and, while he has great precision in his chakra balance, enabling him to achieve a Sage Mode which is visually equal to his son's perfect mastery, he cannot sustain the technique to long and its results are far inferior to those of Naruto. The user gains horizontal slit pupils and orange markings around his eyes, reminiscent of Toads and pertain to the users connection with them. Their physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability dramatically increase, with more emphasis on strength, endurance and stamina rather than speed and reflexes. The user can harness the natural energy surrounding them, turning it into an extension of their body, which increases the reach of their attacks through the use of Frog Kata.

However, once it ends, the exhaustion of sustaining such a delicate chakra balance takes over the user until he can recover. While Sage Mode is active, the user will take little damage from techniques D-Rank and below, and C-Rank and below Taijutsu. When Sage mode ends the user then experiences physical exhaustion reducing their capabilities the following turn preventing him from using techniques above A-Rank and Taijutsu above B-Rank. Minato cannot prevent this with the use of the Amphibian Technique like Jiraya or other Sage Mode user and is limited to using a shadow clone to collect natural energy and dispelling them before sage mode ends, granting him a slight increase in the duration of Sage Mode. Taijutsu gains +10 damage, main elemental affinity gains +15 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +5 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage.
    Note: Sage Mode lasts for a total of 4 turns, unless a clone is used in the last turn to increase the duration by 1 additional turn.
    Note: The use of Frog Katas cuts the length of Sage mode by three turns, instead of the normal two.
    Note: This variation can only be used by Namikaze Minato bios.


    Snake Sage Mode abilities
    • Users Physical Speed and Reactions increase, as well as his strength and durability.
    • Users Senses and Perception increases dramatically. This involves better Sight and Hearing as well as better perceptive capabilities like enhenced smell, heat & vibration perception.
    • The user gains access to Snake anotomy, allowing them to use physical traits of snakes such as brille.
    • *Users Taijutsu gains +15 damage, main elemental affinity gains +20 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +10 damage and Genjutsu gains +10 damage.
    • While Sage Mode is active, the user is able to passively sense the world around them through the flow of natural energy and chakra, giving the user enhanced reflexes and perceptions
    • Custom Snake Sage Mode users and Kabuto bios will take little damage from techniques C-Rank and below, specially Taijutsu. However, because of his special anatomy, Orochimaru, while in Sage Mode, will take little damage from techniques B-Rank and below and A-Rank and below Taijutsu.


    ( Sennin Modo ) – Sage Mode
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra cost: 70 (adds 300 chakra, consumes -15 per turn)
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: The user, by standing perfectly still in a meditative focus (user must stay still for 1 turn), will draw into him natural energy which he will then blend with their own chakra adding a new dimension of power to it. By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). This variation is used by the signers of the Snake Contract that undergo Senjutsu Training. The Snake sage mode gives different effects and features than its toad counter part. The user gains yellow eyes with a black sclera. They gain further access to snake anatomy, such as their brille, which can be used to block out some light as well as stop visual-based genjutsu from affecting them and their scales, which bestow a rudimentary yet effective protection from minor attacks. They are also able to perform abilities that are characteristic of snakes, such as dislocating their jaw, although this is not exclusive to this mode. Their physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability dramatically increase, with more emphasis on speed, agility and reflexes rather than strength, endurance and raw power. When Sage mode ends the user then experiences physical exhaustion reducing their capabilities the following turn and preventing him from using techniques above A-Rank and Taijutsu above B-Rank. A user can prevent this by using a shadow clone to collect natural energy and dispelling it before sage mode ends or by ending sage mode before it times out. While sage mode is active, minor wounds heal slowly as time passes and the user gains the ability to passively sense his surroundings through the natural energy, in a similar but more precise and enhanced way as normal chakra sensing. While Sage Mode is active, the user will take little damage from techniques C-Rank and below, specially Taijutsu. Taijutsu gains +15 damage, main elemental affinity gains +20 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +10 damage and Genjutsu gains +10 damage.
    Note: Sage Mode lasts for a total of 6 turns unless a clone is used
    Note: This variation can only be used by custom bios with the Snake contract

    Description: In the normal Sage Mode, the user, by standing perfectly still in a meditative focus (user must stay still for 1 turn), will draw into him natural energy which he will then blend with their own chakra adding a new dimension of power to it. By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). However, by infusing his body with Jugo's cells like Orochimaru did, Kabuto was able to mimic his ability to passively gather natural energy at all times, becoming able to enter Sage Mode at any time he wishes without needing to wait one turn to gather the necessary natural energy. The Snake sage mode gives different effects and features than its toad counter part. The user gains yellow eyes with a black sclera.

    • Taijutsu gains +25 damage, Wood Release techniques gain +20 damage, Water and Earth gain +15 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage.
    • While Sage Mode is active, the user is able to passively sense the world around them through the flow of natural energy and chakra, giving the user enhanced reflexes and perceptions

    ( Sennin Modo ) – Sage Mode
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra cost: 70 (adds 450 chakra, consumes -15 per turn)
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: The user, by clapping his hands together and concentrating will draw into him natural energy which he will then blend with their own chakra adding a new dimension of power to it. By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). This variation is used by Senjun Hashirama bios and it was first seen in the flashback of Hashirama's fight with Madara. Apparently, Hashirama, through his wood techniques, can gather natural energy and enter sage mode with only a small delay and effort when compared with other users, indicating he can enter sage mode in an easier way than previously considered. Unlike other Sage Mode variants, Hashirama's Sage Mode seems un-related with any animal contract. When he activates sage mode, Hashirama's face gains markings around and under his eyes as well as one in the middle of his forehead reminiscent of a third eye. During the time the user is gathering Natural Energy (1 full turn), Hashirama can still control and use techniques, although he can't physically do any movement, including handseals. Their physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability dramatically increase, with much more emphasis on strength, endurance and stamina rather than speed and reflexes. While sage mode is active, minor wounds heal slowly as time passes and the user gains the ability to passively sense his surroundings through the natural energy, in a similar but more precise and enhanced way as normal chakra sensing. Unlike other techniques, the user will not feel any depletion in terms of stamina and energy and will feel revitalized and strong while its active. However, once it ends, the exhaustion of sustaining such a delicate chakra balance takes over the user until he can recover. While Sage Mode is active, the user will take little damage from techniques C-Rank and below, and A-Rank and below Taijutsu and their incredible chakra levels will increase their resistance to genjutsu, being immune to C-Ranks and below and taking -10 damage from all other genjutsu. When Sage mode ends the user then experiences physical exhaustion reducing their capabilities the following turn preventing him from using techniques above S-Rank and Taijutsu above B-Rank for 3 turns. The user can prevent this by using a shadow clone to collect natural energy and dispelling them before sage mode ends or by ending sage mode before it times out. Taijutsu gains +25 damage, Wood Release techniques gain +20 damage, Water and Earth gain +15 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage.
    Note: Sage Mode lasts for a total of 6 turns, unless a clone is used.
    Note: This variation can only be used by Senju Hashirama bios with Senjutsu.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Additional Restrictions
    • Sage mode can only be used once per battle and only lasts the time stated in the version used but it can be activated at any point in battle. If the user has signed the Toad contract, the user can have clones in Myobokuzan gathering natural energy. By reverse summoning them, the user is able to, by dispersing them in the battle field, use the natural energy they gathered and replenish his own, prolonging Sage Mode. However, not only do those clones count towards the normal clone limit rules and have to be stated in the beginning of the battle, but the user can only have 2 clones pre-preparared and using them only replenishes 2 turns of Sage Mode each (user must state at the beginning of the battle if he has clones in Myobokuzan pre-prepared). This ability is, however, not available for Minato Bios. Other users can make a clone on the field and leave him gathering natural energy to then disperse and enter sage mode, the duration of it will be the normal one, or to replenish its duration.
    • To get trained in Sage Mode you need to be of at least Sannin Rank.
    • To take the test for Sage Mode you need to gain the permission of 2 RP Moderators who will guarantee that you are capable of learning it and using it correctly.
    • Earth, Water and Wind mastery is needed.
    • Once permission is gained, you must apply for a battle test in the bio/battle tests application thread in the RPG Biography section. The test will then be conducted by a sensei and in which you'll need to showcase mastery over Earth, Water and Wind as well as Snake, Toad or Wood techniques depending on which type of sage mode you're testing for.
    • After passing the test, you'll need to find a sensei that will teach you sage mode.
    • Sage Mode cannot be learned on KG, EIG bios or Cannon bios that were not seen possessing it. Custom Clan bios cannot have Sage Mode.
    • Sage Mode cannot be stacked or used with other "modes" or "mode-like" techniques since the fine balance needed to maintain the equilibrium of natural, physical and spiritual energies prevents it.
    • Senju Hashirama bios must abide by their own rules before attempting to attain the permissions and requirements needed for Sage Mode.
    • Yakushi Kabuto bios must abide by their own rules before attempting to attain the permissions and requirements needed for Sage Mode.
    • Orochimaru bios must abide by their own rules before attempting to attain the permissions and requirements needed for Sage Mode.
    • Namikaze Minato bios must abide by their own rules before attempting to attain the permissions and requirements needed for Sage Mode.
