(ZX Basutā) ZX Buster

Background:On his journey across the planet in search of adventure and spiritual enlightenment, Keotsu began reevaluating himself from a fundamental level. As a swordsman, he noticed that his abilities eventually boiled down to the pure form of Taijutsu, which was the basis for all close-range combat. Wishing, then, to create a style of Taijutsu that both reflected his spirit and that would also be of greater use to him, he began studying other styles of close-combat.
He observed the Strong Fist style, a “Hard” and “External” style of Taijutsu that was solely focused on physical strength and overpowering your opponent’s blows. He also observed the Gentle Fist, a “Soft” and “Internal” style that dealt heavily with deflection (and thus energy conservation) as well as meditation, using gentle strikes to release pinpoint discharges of chakra to maximize damage with minimal force.
Desiring to make a balanced fighting style that could be of great aide to its practitioners, he wanted to take the best qualities from each style, and create a form that was both “Hard” and Soft”, both “Internal” and “External”, knowing the entire time that it wouldn’t excel in those areas as well as the Taijutsu forms that specialized in them; in order to make up for these shortcomings and as well to enhance and reinforce the style to his personal tastes and designs, he also decided to make Chakra Flow and Shape Manipulation integral parts of this form, creating this unique and diverse style of Taijutsu.
The result of all this meditation was the creation of the ZX Buster; a unique style of fighting that relied upon chakra discharges to augment physical strength, and the use of Shape Manipulation and Chakra Flow to help give form and additional strength to the abilities.
Meant to augment short-range fighters, it is the perfect complement to well-founded Swordsman and Martial Artists, while being a devastating style all its own.
Description on the Abilities and Inner Workings of the Style: Generally, utilizing ZX Buster requires the use of small pieces of chakra metal which are placed on the user’s knuckles and the palms of their hand, though experienced users of the style are capable of performing the techniques without the gauntlet used; the mechanism, though, is also built into the user’s shoes, to allow for the feet to be used in the style.
The ZX Buster style, like many other Taijutsu forms, is based upon the momentum present upon impact. But, uniquely, it takes use of the chakra that is naturally leaked from the body, forming shapes to attack with, or increasing the amount of force behind an attack to deliver two blows in one; a type of supplementary, spiritual blow.
ZX Buster users accelerate their chakra flow while making a strike in the direction of impact; this causes the naturally leaked chakra to be gathered and dragged in that direction as well, allowing chakra bursts to be used in the style without exhausting the user’s reserves.
There is a specific name for this mechanic: Chakra Charge. Simply put, chakra charge is withholding chakra before impact. This is because when more chakra is accelerated by the user before impact, it results in more of the “leaked” chakra being pulled by it; this effect is similarly affected by momentum.
With this chakra discharge, Shape Manipulation can be applied, meaning that ZX Buster becomes infinitely diverse; “ribbons” of force could be madecould be created from movement, or all the chakra can be released as a great lance upon impact, in a sort of “repulse knuckle”, or the chakra could help create a type of shield, though the complex variations are techniques all their own.
Simply called “Zero Knuckle” or “X Fist” depending on the practioner, it should be noted that the Chakra used in ZX Buster is special: unlike the Gentle Fist, it does not damage the Chakra Pathway by sealing Tenketsu, but rather the chakra strikes through physical objects, meaning that the chakra used in this style damages not only the surface skin, but deep muscles and anything “struck” by the chakra, to ensure damage is dealt to the opponent. This means that ZX Buster is a particularly useful style against those who like to use things like Nagashi and Earth Spear to augment their Taijutsu.
Because of the reliance on Chakra, the “One-Inch Punch” is an integral part of the style; were as the total damage is supposed to be composed of 50% Physical Damage and 50% Chakra damage, that ratio can be vastly changed via the Chakra Charge mechanic; put simply, Charging Chakra increases the force behind a blow.
Not requiring as large an amount of strength as the Strong Fist, or as Precise chakra control as the Gentle Fist (as this is used to expel moderate, rather than precise amounts of chakra through chakra flow), this style offers a good middle ground, and does still require a user who is strong in body, and skilled in chakra control, as in the high-speed combat that comes with Close-range fighting, being able to manipulate their energies for this style must be second nature, since expert users can utilize this style from a strike from any point of contact. It should be noted, though, that as the physical strength of a user increases, the momentum of a blow increases, and thus so does the size and strength of the chakra discharge.
It should also be noted, as Chakra is such an integral part of this style, that it is possible to use this as a type of “ranged” Taijutsu, making it useful to defend a user so that they can work to close the distance to short range, as well; and due to the supplementary nature, some techniques can even be used through Weapons, despite being created for Taijutsu.

The far left is an example of how the chakra is gathered for each strike.
The center is an example of how basic shape manipulation is applied to create a “energy tonfa” with the strike to increase versatility. Note that this may be considered a complex technique.
The far right top demonstrates a generic discharge upon impact, and shows just how much force and energy is behind a strike from the style; the gauntlet shown is reduced down to pieces of chakra metal.
(ZX Basutā: Hienkyaku) ZX Buster: Flying Swallow Feet
Range: Short to Mid
Chakra Cost: 20
Description: A movement based technique, Flying Swallow Feet works by focusing chakra into the soles of the user’s feet, super-charging the chakra-metal present in their shoes. Since there is less of the chakra pathway focused in the user’s feet than other locations on the body, this helps the chakra metal amplify any chakra passed through it that’s used for the ZX Buster style. More specifically, Flying Swallow Feet allows bursts of chakra to be fired from the user’s feet that can be used to accelerate short distances (known as “dashing”). Dashing can be done either in the air or on the ground and helps as it allows the user to put more momentum behind their strikes. When dashing, a visible burst of chakra is seen from the user’s feet, and they tend to have an “afterimage”; this comes about simply a trick of the eye, and is nothing special. As the chakra metal will retain its “super-charge,” and once activated, this technique does not deactivate. The user, although moving in a fast pace/burst of speed is still trackable by normal eyesight.
(ZX Basutā: Noba Kōgeki) ZX Buster: Nova Strike
Description:The user, utilizing Hienkyaku, will quickly leap into the air and release a massive burst of chakra from their feet, while cloaking their body in chakra; the result is a massive aura that surrounds the user and accelerates them forward at high speeds, protecting them from damage and allowing them to act as a virtual cannonball in a type of full-body flying tackle.
Various techniques utilized can be seen and are as follows (they are currently in planning and may or may not be submitted):
2:09 – Chakra Charge[Lv1] (Fist; Ranged)
2:15 – Chakra Charge[Lv2] (Fist; Ranged)
2:40 – Chakra Charge[Lv3 (Max)] (Fist, Ranged)
Various Shape Manipulation Aspects of a Charged Ranged Fist Follow
5:30 – Nova Strike (Full-body; requires Hienkyaku)
5:45 – Excellent Freeform Demonstration (“X-Fist/Zero Knuckle”)
Various Special Techniques are as follows:
1:35 – Chakra Charge [Lv2] (Weapon; Short)
1:39 – Chakra Charge [Lv2, 3] (Fist, Ranged)
1:50 – Rakuhouha
1:58/3:49 – Rekkouha (Defensive/Offensive)
4:57 – Chakra Charge [LvMax] (Weapon;Short)
Additional effects and Restrictions:
-ZX Buster users have no strength difference than other Taijutsu users; however their blows do twice the damage as they normally would, due to the chakra discharge.
-Most ZX techniques have moderate chakra cost and are reusable, as they draw from the chakra that is naturally leaked, reducing the “actual” chakra cost.
-Due to training to withstand their own Chakra Blows, ZX Buster users are incredibly sturdy, having amazing stamina and endurance, when compared to even Strong Fist Masters.
-ZX users have amazing chakra control, due to the fast-paced nature of Taijutsu, and the ability to utilize this style with every strike.
I removed the chakra charge additions and such from the format. I intend to submit them, but as a CJ for the style, as I had originally intended anyway. I know that aspect will need quite a bit of work. I also tried to fix any discrepancies between this and the Gentle Fist, but as my knowledge in its recent feats is rather limited, I may not have done so very well.
