So it was time I revisited this and make some changes, more will come in the future so I guess I need to leave some sort of a change log kinda thing, no time as the present I think, here's the CHANGELOG
Changed Pairing Status
Explained The 2nd Point in Author's note.
Removed shameless plug for the other story.
In explanation of Rinnegan, replaced bloodstream with Chakra stream.
Edit Note: People have given me grief about my comma splicing and the lack of contractions, which will take some time to fix, the story is fine from a spelling point (at least that's what the reviewers tell me, so that's not a problem) Expect more changes in v1.2, including Comma Splice and contraction fixes.
This concept was bugging me for a while, and I know a lot of these kind of fics have been done, but I decided that I would do one anyway. Here are somethings you ought to know.
1. This is a god like Naruto fic, however there is no Harem, Its a Naruto-Yugito fic, Yugito will be of Naruto's age in this so people can stop complaining, also the relationship will be a slow build. Naruto will be overpowered in this fic, but I will make sure that he is challenged by the bad guys although this doesn't mean the bad guys will be overpowered, Naruto will have some problems, he has the ability, but he'll suffer in terms of experience, which can be fixed easily enough, so don't expect every battle to be of the curb stomp variety.
2. Some jutsu names will be in English, some will be in Japanese. Please don't give me grief about this in your reviews, please, really, I can't handle it.
3. Rinnegan will be different, it will as you will find out in the chapter you read, be explained in more detail in the Author's Note below.
Disclaimer: DON'T OWN NARUTO
Full Summary: Naruto has a lot to live up to, not only does he have his father, The Yellow Flash of Konoha and his mother The Red Hot Habanero, he has another legend to live up to and a destiny to fulfill, to bring peace to the world and follow the steps of The Sage Of Six Paths himself. Rinnegan!Naruto, Godlike!Naruto, NO HAREM, M for language and violence.
For as long as Naruto Uzumaki could remember, his life had been a complete nightmare. He had been hated and vilified by the villagers in the place where he lived, and that was The Village Hidden In The Leaves. Naruto had always wondered why it was that he could not ever find any acknowledgement in his hometown, which was also the reason for him playing the various pranks that he played.
The villagers always called him a demon, he always assumed that this was because of the numerous pranks he had played in the past. he had played pranks on the Uchiha clan, and the Hyuga clan and numerous other clans in Konoha had been struck by the malestorm that he was. Naruto was proud of his pranking, he was certainly able to outrun many of the villagers and the ninja's, and the situation was so bad that they had to send experienced ANBU to catch him, and yet he would manage escaping most of the time.
However this was not one of the times, but this was also not one of the times which Naruto had played a prank. This was just another day for Naruto, however the reason why he was in the predicament he was in was lost to him, he could not for the life of him explain why there was a mob of at least 20 Konoha civilians who were now surrounding him, with murderous looks in their eyes, the same way they had looked at him for as long as Naruto could remember. This was certainly not good news for him, he would sure be sore in the morning tomorrow.
That was another thing that Naruto could never explain, no matter what happened, he never got sick or why any wound that was ever inflicted on him by the villagers would ever stay, they would heal almost instantly, but today it looked like the wounds were going to stay, for a long long time.
Naruto gulped, this was not good.
He almost considered apologizing to the civilians but he could not speak, he couldn't even move, and the expression on his face was one of sheer terror. It looked like Naruto would die young, at the age of 6.
"Look at the demon" one of the civilians, Naruto couldn't tell who, sneered. There were nods of agreement in the group upon hearing this, some of them were smiling.
"Yeah, he thinks with that expression on his face he can actually manage to fool us and extract some sympathy from us, but the demon is wrong" the civilian sneered, while Naruto took a step back, however the narrow alleyway in which they had cornered him was not too receptive to this, he realized that he had just stepped into a wall, there was no where he could go now.
"This demon deserves to die" said another person, and yet to Naruto it seemed as though everyone was saying it, the voices were echoing and Naruto felt something inexplicable setting in, his heart tensed and his muscles seized up. He couldn't even breathe anymore, it was almost as if time had stopped. Naruto began feeling something burning in his eyes, while one or two civilians seemed to notice the change in him. They stepped back but shrugged it off as they began closing in again. Naruto shut his eyes as they seemed to burn even more now.
At first all Naruto could smell was the sewers, and nothing more. It almost smelled like the dank underground of Konoha did, actually it smelled exactly like that.
"Where am I?" he wondered aloud, as he began fumbling in the darkness looking for a source of light that would tell him where he was better than he could right now, and yet he couldn't find any.
"Come closer" a voice seemed to call him, and Naruto had no other choice but to follow it. It was like he could not refuse the voice, it was filled with intent and sounded really menacing, almost as though not following it would kill him.
He moved in the direction of the seal before coming across a giant cage with nine bars and a center which was circular with the kanji for 'Seal' engraved on it.
"What the-?" he said to no one in particular.
"The eyes" the voice said, clearly coming from beyond that cage. "Those eyes, I don't recall you having those eyes" the voice said, the menacing tone gone, replaced completely with a curious one, it was as though the voice was interested in him, and Naruto did not like it one bit.
And then it was as though the voice had all his doubts answered. "Of course, Kushina was an Uzumaki, that explains it" it seemed to say, and this caused Naruto to look at him with interest now, it was as though someone had hit him with the stomach, Kushina was an Uzumaki? That meant there had to be another family member existing somewhere.
"Who are you?" he asked looking in the direction of the voice and it had taken more courage than one could think was possible for a six year old boy to possess.
The voice behind the bars seemed to laugh as suddenly the whole cage began illuminating, slowly light began creeping in and Naruto could see that the thing had tails, actually nine of them, and he looked like a fox.
"K-Kyuubi" he said stammering, as the voice began laughing in earnest, it was really dreadful, the whole place seemed to reek of evil forces while Naruto began thinking he might just pee himself.
"As brave as your father eh? Naruto Uzumaki, you also seem as feisty as your mother" the voice said laughing, the laugh was less evil and seemed more jovial and genuine.
"Th-Those eyes? Wh-What eyes are you talking about?" Naruto asked the Kyuubi no Yoko, straightening and summoning some more of that courage, all the while cursing himself for being so foolish. However the voice did not seem offended.
"The color of your eyes seems off though" it mused, while Naruto Uzumaki was trying to feel his eyes, as far as he could tell, the only thing that he found different was he seemed to see more clearly.
"You know my parents?" he asked the fox when he sensed that it had finished laughing, Naruto felt more comfortable by the second as the killing intent had all but disappeared. The fox nodded.
"Yes, I do know of your parents boy, why, it was your father who put me in this god forsaken place behind bars" the voice said as Naruto suddenly realized something, it had been the Yondaime Hokage that had defeated the fox that had attacked Konoha all those years ago, so maybe the fox was saying the Yondaime Hokage was his father?
"Yes" the fox said reading Naruto's mind apparently. "Although the bastard Yondaime did not kill me like some of you insolent whelps seem to believe, he merely sealed me into the body of his own son" the fox said coming closer to Naruto, so much so that they were face to face, or atleast face to Naruto's entire body. "You" he finished, causing Naruto to gulp.
"Y-you mean th-that the Yondiame is my father, and I have a demon inside me, is- is that why the villagers-" he trailed off, tearing up with every word he spoke before he began crying. The crying seemed to set off a chain reaction in the whole place, as bits of the roof seemed to be falling off the roof of the cage the fox was trapped in.
"My- My father did not love me" he said, while crying at the same time, he began moving towards the seal, "The villagers hate me" he said, with a bit more venom in his voice, "I'll show them" he said as he ran towards the circular compartment where 'Seal' was engraved.
"Now Kit, wait one second" the fox called out to him but Naruto was blinded by rage, and pulled off the seal.
"Naruto" the voice called out to him, much calmer than the one before, not even a quarter as rough as the fox's voice, "Naruto, come here" the voice called out to him again.
The whole place was covered in bright light, and Naruto was awestruck at what he was seeing, standing in front of him was a tall blonde man, the resemblance was uncanny and eerie, it almost looked like it was a grown up version of himself. The man was wearing a long cloak which had "Yondaime Hokage" written on it. Naruto realized who it was.
"You" he said, causing the Hokage to smile, it was just like Naruto's smiles but Naruto did not know that.
"Yes, its your father-" before he could finish the sentence however he was punched in the stomach by Naruto, which knocked the wind out of him and brought him to his knees.
The man got up and smiled, "I deserved that" he said, causing Naruto to get a funny look on his face, one of extreme puzzlement. It also seemed to calm him down.
"Why?" Naruto asked him. The man smiled.
"It was unfair wasn't it, why I had to seal the damn fox in you, but Naruto, there was no way to beat him, the only way I could have done it was by sealing it in someone, however I couldn't just go and ask for a baby, it had to be someone I trusted, and there was only one person I trusted enough to keep the fox in the seal, and that was you" he said pointing a finger at him.
"Trusted? Why would you trust someone to seal a demon in them?" Naruto asked his father, who just smiled.
"Of course, my son is too young to understand all this, that is why the seal was almost taken off, however I will explain it to you" he said, Naruto nodded.
"You see" he continued, "There are nine tailed beasts in this world, and the Kyuubi is one of them. These beasts are sealed in a person, and this person is called a Jinchuriki" he said. "The power of human sacrifice" he said explaining the meaning of the term to Naruto.
"Jinchuriki's are the power of human sacrifice Naruto, because not only do they take on a lot of danger by sealing a beast within them, they also have to bear with the treatment you received at the hands of the villagers, and I couldn't understand that" he said sadly, shaking his head as he did so.
"What does that mean?" Naruto said, sitting down and crossing his legs. Listening to his father like a child listens to a fairy tale.
"I expected the villagers to treat you like a hero, for you made an ultimate sacrifice by holding the Kyuubi within yourself, but they saw you for what you held inside you, not what you actually are. It is disappointing I know, but that is ignorance isn't it?" he asked Naruto, who nodded. The villagers really did not know any better.
"Naruto, the trust I have in you was the fact that you could control what is inside you,so that one day you may use the power as a Shinobi of Konoha" he said smiling.
Naruto nodded, wasn't that his dream. It had always been that way.
"Naruto, I love you, and so did your mother, we are proud of you and we will always watch you from above, trust me on this. I will fix the seal this time, but this is the last time I do this" he said, causing Naruto to nod.
"Now, I have some time left, I think I should figure out those eyes of yours" he said, and Naruto wondered what was wrong. This was the second person (although calling the Kyuubi a person would be stretching it) had told him his eyes were different. Suddenly a mirror materialized in front of him, he walked up to the mirror and looked at his reflection, his eyes were different. There was a ripple like pattern around the pupil and the iris and sclera were a red color.
"That is the Rinnegan Naruto, and strangely enough I think I know what caused you to have the Rinnegan" his father said as Naruto stared transfixed at the mirror. "Naruto" he said slowly, Naruto turned around. "Do you know the basics of channeling Chakra?" he asked him. Naruto nodded. He smiled.
"Good" his father said as he began rubbing his hair. "Why don't you relax and withdraw all Chakra?" he asked Naruto, who nodded and turned to the mirror while calming down and withdrawing the Chakra from his body. His eyes returned to their normal piercing blue color. His father smiled.
"What do you know, you have my eyes too" he said, causing Naruto to smile.
"Dad, why do I have this Rinnegan thing?" he asked his father, who looked pensive upon being asked that question.
"I think we need the fox to explain that question to us" he said, as the bright light immediately receded and they were back in the familiar dark and smelly sewer again.
"YONDAIME" a voice screamed, Killer Intent flaring causing Naruto to feel unsettled again, however his father held his hand, stabilizing him immediately.
"COME HERE, YOU INSOLENT HUMAN, HOW DARE YOU"
"SHUT UP" his father screamed, and that earned Naruto's respect. He was petrified of the damn thing, but his father was having a shouting match, and the Kyuubi was actually listening.
"I know you were not in control of yourself, but I had to do what I had to do, so stop shouting at me and listen and explain why he has these eyes"
The fox smiled. "The sage of six paths possessed that Dojutsu and only a person with Uchiha and Senju chakra can unlock the Rinnegan" it said.
"That is correct, but where is the Uchiha Chakra from?" he asked the fox.
"You know, the person who took control of me, after you freed me from it, I was left with some traces of that infernal chakra of the Uchiha's. It was not enough to control me again, but it was there, today it melded with the kit's Uzumaki Chakra, which is a clan that is related to the Senju's and my first ever host itself" it said. "No wonder he unlocked the rinnegan, and I can even explain why the Rinnegan is slightly different for him, that is because of my own Chakra" it finished.
"You mean to say some of that Uchiha Chakra was mixed with your own and leaked into Naruto's chakra stream, mixing with his normal chakra and thus giving him a Rinnegan that is different and is something he can deactivate?"
The fox nodded its giant head.
"That does not make any sense whatsoever" Naruto pipped in, causing not only the Yondaime, but also the Kyuubi itself to laugh.
"Your son, Minato, he has spunk, I have to give you that" the fox said laughing at the same time.
Minato nodded. "Naruto, focus some Chakra to your eyes will you, once more, lets see if you can do it again"
Naruto nodded, forcing some chakra to his eyes, however the pain did not come this time, there was no burning sensation in his eyes.
Minato looked at Naruto with a triumphant expression in his eyes. "You can actually activate and deactivate this thing, that is certainly very useful" he said, causing Naruto to feel puzzled.
"Why would that matter dad?" he asked Minato who smiled. "You will have some people after you for this Dojutsu Naruto, so its a good thing that you can hide it at will" he said, causing Naruto to look at him wide eyed.
"Is it really that powerful dad?" he asked his father who nodded. "No one knows what the Rinnegan can do Naruto, it generally is said to bring goodness or chaotic evil, you are going to be an exceptional shinobi someday"
Naruto smiled, it was good to hear that from the man he was idolizing who turned out to be his own father.
"Naruto, I am fading now" Minato said smiling, "Not a lot of time has passed outside, barely a second, so just react on your instincts okay, I think you will be alright. I know I couldn't stay too long, and I know that you would love to know a lot of things, but that is your mother's story to tell" he said, causing Naruto to look at him again.
"Yes, Naruto, did you expect only your father to be able to talk to you, your mother is a lot more feisty than you, and she made sure that she would see you when the time came, but that is some ways away son" he said, Naruto was tearing up again, while even Minato seemed to have teary eyes.
"I love you and I hope you can forgive me for this" he said, causing Naruto to nod. Deep down even Naruto knew he couldn't stay mad for long at his father for what had happened and he understood the reasons for the fox being sealed into him. Minato began flickering.
"Ask the Sandaime to give you Minato's scrolls, he will understand clearly" he said, "No matter what happens, do not blame the villagers Naruto, rise above that hate and focus on making friends and earning respect. Remember, the people who have responsibility thrust upon them are the ones who are strong, just like you, make sure that the village is your responsibility, okay?"
"Minato" the fox said, interrupting the conversation that father and son were having as Minato began flickering. "He has the eyes of our father, and he is of strong heart, so the day he is capable of taking my Chakra, I will offer to meld with him" he said."The great Kyuubi No Kitsune will make sure that he stays alive" he said, causing Minato to smile.
"You know, you aren't that bad" Minato said, the flicker was getting stronger now.
The fox laughed, "Its time, leave Minato, I consider you worthy enough of knowing my name. It is Kurama" he said.
However Minato had disappeared.
Naruto was about to turn off the Rinnegan when the fox spoke to him.
"Naruto, not much time has passed outside. Those eyes should give you some form of control over gravity, so just focus your Chakra on pushing when the mob comes close, you should be able to fend them off" it said. Naruto nodded.
"One more thing, when you need to talk to me, just meditate, this is your mindscape, you can meet anytime. You don't have to come here to talk to me though, we can do that telepathically also" it continued.
"Telepathic?" Naruto scratched his head. "What is that?"
Kurama shook his head. "You are a stupid kid, now go" it said, pushing Naruto outside the mindscape.
It was almost as though only a breath had been taken in the world outside, the civilians were still closing in, however some seemed to have noticed the color of his eyes had gone from blue to red. They stepped back, however Naruto was just doing what was coming to his mind, however he felt instincts take over as he gave a push of his chakra.
"Shinra Tensei" he whispered.
The affects were immediate, a huge pulse of energy was sent out from Naruto's hands, and the whole mob of people was pushed right back. Naruto cringed as he saw a person hit his head against the wall, the narrow alleyway had become wide as the walls surrounding them had been destroyed.
Some of the civilians were cringing at what had happened, there were moans of pain heard from some sides as Naruto realized that while he might not be as tired as he looked, there was a lot of things that had happened and everything had changed. He sighed as he fainted, deactivating his Dojutsu as he did so.
Weasel, of the ANBU had seen villagers lying about in pain, he did not know what had happened. He sighed as he realized that the idiots had tried attacking Naruto Uzumaki again. He decided the boy needed a hospital while Sandaime needed to know about this, he walked over to the exhausted six year old and sunshined away.
Naruto's Rinnegan : Now, I have warned you, Naruto is strong here, however not every battle he has will be of the curb stomping variety, he has all the skills of the Rinnegan but he can deactivate his at anytime, and can also combine two or three nature types, however this will be more difficult for him compared to someone with a bloodline. The villains are also overpowered as such.
Tell me what you thought about this story (Its called The Second Sage for a reason you know), also, I am running a poll about the pairing, it will probably be only for a week, so please vote. There will be a lot of names, and remember, only one can win it as there is no Harem, so please take five minutes of your precious time and vote. Until then.
