Author's Notes: I have seen a lot of fics where Naruto and Bleach is crossed over and Naruto gets the powers of a Shinigami, Vizard, or sometimes even an Arrancar. However, I have only seen that last situation if Naruto dies or in one story because of the Kyuubi being a glorified Hollow. Then as I was reading Tyrchon's Duty, Honor, and Truth I got the idea for this story. Please note our individual writing style is quite different from each other.

Prologue and Chapter 1: Rebirth of the Arrancar

Konohagakure no Sato, the largest and most powerful of the Five Great Shinobi Villages, was normally a peaceful place. Or as peaceful as a Hidden Village can be. But, the village's strength was known far and wide, so nothing less than a force of nature would dare bring its wrath to bear on Konoha. Unfortunately it was indeed a force of nature that brought its wrath down on the Hidden Leaf Village. A force known as the Kyuubi no Kitsune.

"Hold it back! We need to keep it busy till the Hokage arrives!" Shouted one of the Jounin who was in charge of keeping the giant demon fox from entering the walls of the village. A tail swipe later that Jounin and his squad were crushed under several of the giant trees that the forests of the Land of Fire are known for.

"OUT OF MY WAY HUMAN SCUM!! NOTHING WILL KEEP ME FROM THAT VILLAGE!!" Said the Kyuubi as it passed through another layer of defense on its way to its goal. However, it paused when it felt the presence of its goal moving towards itself. Before the kitsune could move again a massive toad smoking a giant pipe and with a giant dagger at its side, poofed into existence. Upon the toad's head stood the figure of the young, blond, spiky haired form of the Yondaime Hokage Namikaze Minato, wearing his distinctive white cloak, with flames running along the bottom, over his Jounin uniform, face set to battle this new foe that has appeared to destroy his home. But, what drew the Kyuubi's eyes was not the massive Toad Boss Gamabunta, or the powerful Hokage whose name strikes fear into the heart of every shinobi in Iwagakure, but to the form of the squirming infant in the Yondaime's arms that couldn't be more than a few minutes old. "THERE!! I'LL DESTROY YOU!!

Despite having a fox the size of a small mountain charging them, Gamabunta and the Yondaime were calm and collected, knowing that they have done everything they could to make their plan work.

"Are you sure you want to go through with this gaki?" Asked the Toad Boss, who despite his gruff exterior was a big softie when it came to the young blond on his head.

"Hai Gamabunta. As I already explained to Sarutobi and Kakashi, this is the only way we can stop the Kyuubi. Well, short of giving it what it wants. But, we don't know why it's here so that's not an option." The Yondaime sighed at the actions he would have to commit that day. "I just hope that the village will see my son as the hero he is for what must be done."

"Don't worry, I'll tell Jiraiya to summon me if anything happens. And when he does I'll squash anyone giving the tadpole trouble." Gamabunta couldn't help but chuckle at the thought, but quickly became sober as the kitsune was almost upon the two friends. "Well, if you're going to do it, it should be now."

"Just make sure the fox doesn't get to us before I'm finished." Said the Yondaime as he started performing a long, complex string of hand seals that would activate the Fuuinjutsu seals already placed on his son in his own blood. Finally coming to an end on the Snake seal, Minato called out the name of the only technique he had that had a chance of defeating the mighty demon. "Shiki Fuujin!"

The Kyuubi no Kitsune is the most powerful of the Nine Bijuu. This strength is more than physical power, speed, or its staggering chakra capacity, but also comes from an intelligence and cunning that is virtually unmatched by any living creature, demon or mortal. But, in the kitsune's rage and desire to crush the figure before it, the fox failed to notice the reaching arm of the one being truly more powerful then itself.

The Shinigami had been summoned to the mortal plain by the Yondaime to seal away the Kyuubi, and in exchange it would devour the Hokage's soul as payment for the task. Reaching out its arm, the Shinigami's clawed hands closed around the demon fox's throat. Ignoring the Kyuubi's roars and pointless threats, the Shinigami used the dagger it normally kept between its teeth to stab the kitsune's side and began channeling the fox's soul through its body and into the seals on infant that kept the Shinigami on the mortal plan until its task was complete.

"NOOO!! I WON'T ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!!" Screamed the fox demon, reaching out with its massive paws in an attempt to destroy the Shinigami's summoner, but with its soul being removed the kitsune's strength was waning and only managed a shallow cut along the left eye of the Toad Boss.

Within moments the final piece of soul removed and giving one last rage filled roar, the body of the legendary demon collapsed to the ground while turning to dust and ash. Soon all that remained was the Toad Boss, Yondaime, a crying infant, and a God of Death, and that number would be reduced by two once the Shinigami took its payment.

Feeling his own strength waning, the Yondaime laid the infant down beside him so he wouldn't drop the child. "Well Gamabunta. It looks like this is it." Minato said to the massive orange toad, before turning to the child at his side while placing a comforting hand onto the crying infant's head. "May the village respect you and see you as a hero son. I am truly sorry that I had to do this, and force you to live a life without your parents," he could barely keep back a sob at the thought of his wife Kushina who died during childbirth, "but Sarutobi Ojisan has promised to look after you. My sensei Jiraiya even promised to train you once you were old enough. 

Goodbye Naruto." Those words took that last of his strength and the once bright cerulean eyes became a dull sapphire as the light faded from them. And, the Yondaime Hokage, hero of the Third Great Shinobi War and now the defeater of the most powerful of demons, left the world of the living, leaving behind a legacy greater than he could have ever imagined. A legacy that was found resting in the arms of the newly re-instated Sandaime Hokage, who had arrived mere moments after his predecessor's death with a company of ANBU to help him return the body of the fallen village leader. Gamabunta dismissed himself as the group departed.

Unbeknownst to the group of elite ninja, or to the chief of the Toad Summons, the entire event had been watched beginning to end by an individual who had been thought dead for decades.

High upon the Hokage Mountain, sitting on the head of the late Yondaime, was the figure of a man with shoulder length hair as black as a raven's back that covered the left side of his face. A cloak as black as his hair covered his body, preventing anyone from seeing the build of his body, but failed to suppress the aura of power he possessed. The man's lips were shaped into a smirk as he contemplated the events of that night.

'Well this is a most unexpected turn of events.' Thought the man. 'No doubt the Hokage and any others privy to the information will suspect the Uchiha of being behind the fox's attack. They'll never know that this is an instance where the Kyuubi attacked by its own choice, in a desire to destroy the very babe that now contains it.' The man couldn't help but laugh at the irony of the situation, made all the funnier since it involved a mighty demon and a baby that couldn't even crawl yet. 'But, even though I can no longer call on the fox when I desire, this is without a doubt more useful to my goals in the long run. After all, that child has the power to revive the clan that created mine, and the clan that taught me to use these eyes of mine.' The man's one visible coal black eye suddenly became red with three black tomoe markings swirling around a black pupil before shifting into the Mangekyou Sharingan of Uchiha Madara. 'Things are going to get interesting. Don't disappoint me Naruto.' Thought the former Uchiha leader as he departed from the mountain and the village it resided in.

(Time Skip – 12 years)

Twelve years had passed since the night of the Kyuubi attack, and Konoha had long since recovered its lost strength. And, that strength was about to be increased again for it is the day of the Genin Exam. A day when the Academy students show what knowledge and skills that they have obtained over the course of six years, and hope that it is good enough to become Genin.

For one Uzumaki Naruto, this day is even more important since as a Genin he will be a true Shinobi, and finally walk the path needed to become Hokage. And, being Hokage would mean that Naruto would finally receive the respect and attention he desired. There was just one little snag in this plan. That problem was the final jutsu of the last part of the exam, the Bunshin jutsu.

"All right Naruto. All you need to do to pass is to create three perfect Bunshin." Said Umino Iruka, the teacher of Naruto's class, who was grading the students of their progress with the help of his assistant Mizuki.

"Don't worry Iruka-sensei. I'll pass for sure this time. Believe it!" Naruto enthusiastically pumped his hand in the air, but on the inside he was worried. After all, Bunshin is his absolute worst jutsu. As Naruto made his way to the front, he could feel the eyes on him; it was common knowledge that this was his third attempt at becoming a Genin. What Naruto did not know was just how closely he was being watched by two individuals. These two would be Naruto's stalkers, Hyuuga Hinata and Uchiha Hikari.

Hinata is supposed to be the heiress to the prestigious Hyuuga clan, but suffered from confidence problems. In terms of looks she was among the prettiest of the girls, but she never used makeup and kept to a natural look. She would probably be counted as the sexiest if she didn't hide her impressive bust beneath her jacket. What she loved about Naruto was his 'never say die' and his 'never give up' attitude. An attitude she herself wished she had.

Uchiha Hikari is the younger twin sister of Uchiha Sasuke, and is one of the few survivors when her elder brother Itachi killed the majority of the clan before running form the village and becoming a missing-nin. After the massacre, Hikari clung to the meaning of her name and sought the 'light' of life. That was why she was attracted to Naruto. He was, without a doubt, the most positive guy she had ever met, and was always doing something that made her laugh. But, she knew that one of the reasons Naruto acted the way he did was to find his own 'light' for she had seen how he was always alone and knew how he was an orphan. So in a way he was a lot like her. There was nothing Hikari would have enjoyed more then to go and make friends with him but several things held her back. The first was her clan, who would never approve of her interacting with the village pariah. The second was her brother Sasuke, who would do everything he could to keep her away from any guy he did not approve of, which was everyone. Finally there were her fanboys, who were almost as bad as Sasuke's fangirls, especially Inuzuka Kiba who was the most persistent. If Hikari paid particular attention to any boy, especially Naruto, the others would gang up on them. The reason she had the fanboys in the first place was for the same reason Sasuke had fangirls. She was the fourth best in the class when it came to grades. She was considered one of the prettiest and the hottest girl because her curves were second only to Hinata, and Hikari did not hide hers. Like her brother she wore a blue shirt with the Uchiha crest on the back, only hers was a bit more form fitting and had no sleeves (think of what Tenten wore only blue). Her raven black hair came down to her mid back and was normally kept in thick braid to keep it out of her face. From her wrists up to her elbows Hikari wrapped her arms with bandages, while on her hands were fingerless black gloves. Like the other girls Hikari wore black biker shorts, which she covered with a light blue skirt that went down to mid thigh with slits running up the sides to keep maneuverability, and had a shuriken holster taped to her right leg. Finally, her bright and sunny personality was as good for drawing men as the dark and brooding attitude her brother had drew women.

Both these girls wished they could be with Naruto. Both of them had reasons that kept them away from him. And both were more than a little jealous of the attention Naruto gave Sakura.

Down in front of class everything was set for Naruto to try the assigned jutsu.

"Ok Naruto. Whenever you're ready." Stated Iruka, ready to grade the jutsu.

Naruto took a deep breath and brought his hands together in the Ram seal. As he concentrated his chakra there was a flicker of a blue aura, noticed by only a handful of people in the room. Almost shouting the name of the jutsu, "Bunshin no Jutsu," there was a puff of smoke that filled the room revealing one pale and sickly clone on the ground. The thing looked like a strong wind would finish it off and if almost sounded like it was saying "kill me" even though Bunshin can't make any sound.

Such a pathetic display of the Bunshin caused the entire class to burst into laughter, save six. Two who were saddened and depressed, one that didn't care either way, one who did not see the logic of laughing at others misfortune, one that was busy munching on chips, and one who thought that laughing would be too troublesome.

It didn't take long for the class to get on Iruka's nerves, since he was rather fond of the blond boy, and he resorted to using one of the most feared jutsu known. The 'Giant Evil Head no Jutsu' which was on a similar level to Gai's 'Springtime of Youth' Genjutsu. "EVERYONE SHUTUP!!" He yelled with his oversized head, scaring everyone and leaving them with the deer caught in the headlight look. Turning to his favorite student, Iruka couldn't help but feel a pang of sadness for the boy's misfortune. Placing a hand on Naruto's shoulder he said, "I'm sorry Naruto. But cheer up, there's always next year." Iruka knew this probably didn't improve the boy's mood since there had never been a student before that graduated after the age of twelve. But, any ray of hope would be enough to keep Naruto going.

Naruto just nodded slowly as he walked back up to his seat as the last student, Yamanaka Ino was called down.

When class ended, everyone went out to greet their waiting families, wanting to show off their new hitat-ate. Some did not wait, like Hinata was greeted by a branch member guard who escorted her home. Or the Uchiha siblings who rushed home, although Hikari lingered for a second.

And, Naruto who did not have anyone waiting for him here or at home went over to sit on the swing in the lone tree of the academy's front yard. From this distance Naruto could watch the families, but it also allowed him to hear the mutterings of some of the parents who noticed him.

"Is that…"

"Yeah. I heard that he failed for the third time."

"Good. Maybe now he'll just give up."

Naruto grew even more depressed and got up to leave if someone hadn't been called to him.

"Hey Naruto. I'm glad I caught you." Said Mizuki as he walked up to Naruto. "Listen, I have something important to tell you that could mean becoming a Genin."

"What!? Really!?" Naruto was wide-eyed and excited at the prospect of getting another chance to graduate.

"Yes. Iruka didn't want to say anything in front of the other students, because this is a secret remedial test. It's a lot harder than the normal test." Mizuki said. "What you have to do is steal an item in the Hokage tower called the Forbidden Scroll. After that, you have to go to a secret place of your choosing and try to learn 1 jutsu. If you manage to do it by the time a Chuunin finds you and perform it to satisfaction, you pass."

Naruto was practically jumping for joy. "Don't worry Mizuki-sensei. I'll pass this test for sure." Before another word could be said, Naruto was running off to prepare for the heist.

Mizuki watched him for awhile before muttering "What a gullible idiot." With that Mizuki turned away to prepare his act for tonight.

What neither one knew was that they had been watched by a certain Uchiha who had come back rather than go home

Naruto jumped into the middle of a clearing in the woods. He was panting, with his hands on his knees, and with the scroll tied to his back. It took every trick he knew to evade his pursuers, but in the end he got away. But, he knew that wouldn't last long when Iruka started searching. The Chuunin seemed to have a sixth sense when it came to finding Naruto. And, it didn't help that he taught Naruto half of those tricks.

But, no matter how tired he was, now was not the time to rest. It was time to practice.

"Now let's see what the first jutsu is." Said Naruto has he opened the scroll, while wearing a foxy grin. "Hmmm…The first jutsu is Kage Bunshin. Aw man! Another clone jutsu. Sigh…well maybe I'll have better luck with this one."

Setting to work on the B-class jutsu, Naruto found it surprisingly easy. After only two hours he could proudly say that he had fully learned and could create a perfect shadow clone, something he could never do with the regular Bunshin. And it wasn't long after that when he received an expected guest.

"Naruto!" Shouted the worried teacher when he saw his student, hopping down into the clearing. "What were you thinking stealing the Forbidden Scroll?"

"Well I just wanted to make Genin, so took the remedial test. But, you got here sooner than I thought. So far I've only have had time to learn one jutsu. Now that you're here, I can show it to you." Naruto said excitedly, but stopped when he saw the confused look on the Chuunin.

"Remedial test? Naruto, there is no remedial test."

Naruto blinked before hesitantly asking, "Then why did Mizuki-sensei tell me about one?"

"Because I knew you would believe it!" Shouted the voice of Mizuki from above them, with two giant shuriken strapped to his back.

"Mizuki!" Shouted Iruka. "Why did you tell Naruto that there was a test that involved stealing the Forbidden Scroll?"

Giving the confused Chuunin a smirk of superiority Mizuki answered. "Simple really. Despite his terrible grades, he's pretty good at getting in and out of places without getting caught. Add in the fact that you're the only one that can catch him and that provides me with the best chance to get the Forbidden Scroll. All I have to do now is get rid of you two and it's all mine."

"But why?"Iruka asked of the man he had thought of as his friend for years.

"Power Iruka. I would have thought that obvious." Mizuki said as if talking about the weather. "That scroll has the most powerful techniques this village has ever possessed. If I can master that power, I could obtain or do whatever I desired. Naruto is a perfect example what one can do with such power."

"Wait! What do you mean?" Asked a confused and somewhat scared Naruto.

"Oh, that's right. You don't know about your little secret, do you?" Said Mizuki as a sadistic grin spread on his face. "Well, why don't I inform you then?"

"Stop Mizuki! You know it's forbidden!" Shouted Iruka.

That didn't stop the rouge Chuunin. "Twelve years ago on October 10th the Kyuubi no Kitsune attacked the village of Konoha. Fortunately, it was defeated by the Yondaime Hokage. But, what they don't teach is how the Hokage couldn't kill the fox. Instead he had to seal it away in a child. A newborn child."

"DON'T SAY ANYMORE!!" Screamed Iruka, to no avail.

"That child was you Naruto. Now DIE!" Shouted Mizuki as he threw one of his giant shuriken, straight at Naruto.

If Naruto was his normal self, he might have been able to dodge. But in his emotional turmoil at the revelation, he didn't even notice the projectile. Until he felt the drops of blood. Looking up he saw Iruka leaning over him and with the shuriken in his back.

"Iruka-sensei, why?"

"Because Naruto, no matter what anyone else says I know that you are Naruto and not the fox. You are also my student, and I would give my life to protect you. Now run before Mizuki attacks again."

Naruto was about to run when something inside him told him to stop.

"Naruto hurry and get away, you have to protect the scroll."



Looking the Jinchuuriki dead in the eye, Iruka saw something he had never seen before, resolve. "No Iruka-sensei. You said you would give your life to protect me, and I can't let someone do that for me." With that Naruto shove Iruka behind him to protect the Chuunin-sensei.

"Naruto! This not the time for heroics. If Mizuki gets his hands on that scroll, who knows what he'll be capable of."

"Please Iruka. If the brat wants to stay let him. It just saves me the trouble of hunting him down later." Said Mizuki as he prepared his next shuriken.

"Listen here Mizuki-teme! I don't care why you want power, but you hurt Iruka-sensei. And, I'm going to make you pay. For I'm going to be the next Hokage. Believe It!"

Right then two things happened. First Mizuki threw his second shuriken. And just a split second a dark red light surrounded Naruto. When the shuriken was about to hit its target, Naruto raised his hand and caught hold of the blade.

"WHAT!?" Shouted Mizuki in disbelief.

Naruto had caught his giant shuriken bare handed. A feat that would get the hand sliced off most others. Yet there was not a drop of blood. As the light faded, it revealed a changed Naruto, who had an aura of dark red chakra. When they felt the chakra both Chuunin thought the same thing. 'What is this dark feeling chakra? It feels like the Kyuubi's, but it lacks the malice and rage. And what happened to Naruto?' Naruto had suddenly grown three inches while somehow obtaining some muscle mass at the same time, making his clothes far too tight. Where once his green goggles rested on his head, was now a white headband that appeared to be made of bone. What really drew attention was the bone white claymore that rested on his back in holster attached to a chain that again appeared to be made of bone.

Naruto looked directly into Mizuki's eyes, directing a small amount of killing intent at the traitor. "Is that all you've got?" He asked while dropping the shuriken, a small paper cut the only indication he ever held it. "If it was, then I'm going to pay you back for what you did to Iruka-sensei. A thousand times over!" Making a cross shaped seal, Naruto called out his newest technique. "Kage Bunshin no Jutsu!" Suddenly well over a hundred shadow clones appeared in the clearing. On some unspoken signal every Naruto attacked the traitor, delivering the harshest beating the Chuunin had ever felt.

Once that was over and the clones were dismissed, the real Naruto walked back over to the fallen Iruka who had a look of trepidation.

"Naruto, is that you?" The Chuunin asked nervously.

"Heh heh…See Iruka-sensei? I told you I had learned a new jutsu." Said Naruto weakly before he collapsed face first into the ground, exhausted from the sudden changes his body went through.

"Naruto!" Shouted Iruka as he tried to get over to the tired blond, but the wound in his back limited his movement. Fortunately the Calvary arrived in the form of the Hokage and two ANBU. "Hokage-sama, I'm glad to see you." Said a relieved Iruka.

Giving the teacher a nod the Hokage said. "It's good to see you still alive Iruka. Bird, Dog," he said to the two ANBU with him, "take Iruka here to the hospital for medical treatment. I'll take care of Naruto myself." He said as he picked up the boy, while confirming his suspicions from what he saw in his crystal ball. He was also somewhat worried about the presence he felt running back to the village, but he would have to deal with that later. Right now he needed to deal with Naruto, and Sarutobi had to admit that he loved the boy like his own grandson, but the amount of paperwork this was going to cause would probably be the old man's undoing. There was much to be done that night and the next day, he thought as he was about to depart, before being stopped by Iruka.

"Wait Hokage-sama." Iruka untied his old worn hitat-ate and tossed it to the old man who caught it. "When Naruto wakes up, tell him that he passes."

The Hokage gave a small nod of understanding before he disappeared via the use of Shunshin.

Far away in the mountainous northern reaches of the Land of Lighting, a man wearing a black suit with a grey scarf and an orange swirling face mask with one eye hole paused at what he was doing and gazed off to the south. His attention was snapped back when a plant like man wearing a black cloak with red clouds upon it rose out of the ground in front of him.

"Why did you stop Tobi?" Asked Zetsu's white half.

"Huh? Oh, nothing Zetsu. Tobi was just daydreaming." Said Tobi as he rubbed the back of his head sheepishly.

"Well get a move on before I decide to eat you." Said the black half. "Pein-sama wants this report on the Nibi given in person, as soon as possible."

"Hai, I'm coming, because Tobi is a good boy." Said the odd man. In his mind the real Tobi, Madara was overjoyed. His special Mangekyou allowed him to sense the awakening of Uzumaki Naruto's power, and that meant his true goals were one step closer to completion. 'One day, you and I will meet Naruto, but first you must get stronger. Strong enough, to honor your ancestors. Until then, I will simply congratulate you for awakening your Kekkei Genkai and allowing the rebirth of the Arrancar.'

Author's Notes: Man with all the ideas I am getting sometimes it is a wonder I can get anything done. Don't worry I will only do at most one more story but I would need to some research before I could attempt that one. I will try to be punctual about updating my stories, but I do ask for a bit of patience.

I will eventually make the rating for this story M but for the first few chapters I am going to have it as a T.

This is also definitely a harem story. Right now the set girls are my OC Uchiha Hikari, Hyuuga Hinata, and FemHaku. There is a possibility I will add Sakura but we have to see how I feel about that. The same goes for any other girls.

Please Read and Review: Reviews make me feel good and I will answer any questions people have.
