~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chapter 12: The Genin Test ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
" I SAID STOP IT! " yelled Hinata, which got everyone to quiet down in shock since she was always quiet
" " Naruto and Kiba had nothing else to say, so they just both sat down
Choji dropped the bowl of ramen that he was eating and he was not even pissed off about it, everyone was just surprised that she snapped like that. Shikamaru was the only one who was going about his business, which was sleeping on the counter of the ramen stand. Hinata was quickly back to her shy self. They spent the rest of the day hanging out and talking about their team until it was time for Hinata to go home. After Hinata went home, they each left one by one as they had things to take care of at home.
It was late in the afternoon when Naruto made it to his house, he walked in the house and he saw that Jiraiya was not yet home. Naruto ran up the stairs and took his clothes off getting ready to take a shower, before he would wait for Jiraiya to get home so that the sage could train him. Naruto walked in the bathroom and turned on the water so that the water could heat up, after what seemed like one minute he got in the tub and stood under the water. The water fell on his head and his hair quickly fell over his face, which showed how long his hair really was. His was face up to his nose was covered in yellow hair. After over 20 minutes, Naruto turned off the water and took his towel walking out of the tub with a bored look on his face. He went in his room and took a T-shirt and some short pants out of his drawer and put them on, before he ruffled his hair and it was back to its usual messed up look.
Naruto left the room and headed down the stairs where he would find something to do before going to sleep, he didn't want to go training right now since he would be tired before the exam the next day. Naruto sat down in the living room of the house watching Tv while waiting for Jiraiya to get home. He waited and waited and the tall man still didn 't come home yet, he wasn't getting worried because he knew there was no way anything could happen to Jiraiya in the village. After what was like thirty minutes, Naruto realized that he didn't have any materials for the test, stuff like wires, kunais, shurikens and smokes bombs. Naruto didn't want to leave the house right now, so he did the next best thing send a clone in his place, he did the single hand seal he usually did for the jutsu and said ' Kage Bunshin no Jutsu ' and in front of him two clones appeared. He told one of the clones to go find some money upstairs for the materials and orderd the other one to go find Jiraiya. The clone that was suppose to go find Jiraiya walked out of the roof with his hands behind his head, while the other one rushed up the stairs to go get the money.
~~~~~~~~~ The Next Day ~~~~~~~~~
Naruto woke up and quickly jumped in the shower to get ready for his test with Team 7, he wasn't in a hurry because he knew Kakashi was going to be at least one hour late. After putting his clothes on, Naruto went downstairs hoping to find Jiraiya since the sage was usually sitting by the table, but the Toad Sage was nowhere to be found. Naruto checked himself one more time for the scroll that had his materials in it, which was in his kunai holder before walking out of the house and applying the seals that guarded the house. He was suppose to meet Kakashi and the rest of team 7 at Nine O'clock but he knew Kakashi would make it around 10 O'clock if not later. Naruto walked slowly with his hand behind his head with a bored expression on his face.
The yellow hair boy was heading toward his favorite food place to get some breakfast before taking the test, he walked for a little more before he reached the place. He moved one of the curtains that blocked inside of the ramen stand from outside view and walked in and took a seat on the stool in the middle of the counter. He sat down and the owner of the stand was as usual glad to see his most frequent customer. Naruto ordered his food and he waited a couple minutes before Teuchi put down the bowl of vegetable ramen in front of him. He ate his food slowly and took his time thinking over many possible strategies for the upcoming test he was going to take. Naruto finished with the bowl of vegetable soup and he put the money on the counter running out of the ramen stand with a big grin on his face.
" See you Later Naruto " Teuchi screamed after the boy who only waved back at the old man still grinning
Naruto ran the rest of the way toward Training ground seven where Kakashi told them to meet him this morning. After five minutes of running the boy finally made it to the spot and found Sakura and Sasuke standing on the bridge under the sakura tree that was still growing by the little bridge. Naruto walked up to them and he greeted both of them before he jumped on the tree and sat down waiting for Kakashi to show up. Sakura at every second was trying to start a conversation with the Young Uchiha, but Sasuke was just giving her one word answers.
" So Sasuke-kun are you ready for the test? " asked Sakura smiling at the boy
" Hn " nodded the young Uchiha not even bothering to look at her
After a while, they all started to get bored waiting for the silver hair jounin to show up to give them the test. It has been one hour since they were all waiting for their sensei to show up and Naruto was fast asleep on the tree, Sasuke was sitting down at the trunk of the tree, while Sakura was just walking back and forth pissed off waiting for the man.
Kakashi appeared in front of them via shunshin with a swirl of leaves in front of the three with a smile on his face.
" You're LATE! " Sakura accused loudly, pointing up at the Jounin. Naruto fell off the tree straight on his head by the sudden noise and Sasuke jumped up and threw a kunai toward Kakashi which the jounin evaded easily.
' Honestly what kind of Jounin is late to everything? ' thought the young girl glaring at the man
" Sorry about that. A black cat crossed my path and I had to turn around and trace my steps before taking the long way here so that I wouldn't have bad luck for the rest of my life. " Kakashi explained with his eye making and Up side down U as a way of apologizing.
" What...! " Sakura was gaping and about to say more but Kakashi walked right past them to a post and set down a timer.
" Why the HELL do you have to be so LOUD? " yelled Sasuke pointing at the pink hair girl with a vein popping on his forehead
Sakura looked at him as if she was ready to jump back in a shell for protection since she had never seen the boy snap before. Kakashi walked past them and set down a timer clock that he came with, while Naruto was still holding his head with a big lump on it.
" Let's get started shall we? " He pressed the timer button down and smiled.
" It's set for noon." He then reached into his pocket and produced two bells.
Naruto watched transfixed. ' What kind of survival test was this? '
" You have until noon to get a bell from me. Whoever doesn't get a bell from me by noon will go without lunch. You'll be tied to these posts and watch as whoever gets a bell eat their food in front of you. " explained Kakashi looking at the three.
" But Sensei, there's only two bells and three of us. " Sakura pointed out.
" Oh that's so that one of you is tied to the post and disqualified. That one goes back to the academy. Of course all three of you could flunk out too. You can use any weapons or skill against me. If you do not come at me with the intent to kill, you will not get a bell. " Kakashi explained to the three new genins.
Naruto went with his thought and a kunai came out of his sleeve, ready to go. He had not even blinked when he found his hand trapped behind his head with the kunai pointed at the back of his head. Kakashi's hand was on top of his head and the other gripping his wrist tightly.
" I didn't even say start yet. " Kakashi chuckled
' He's fast ' thought the boy with a grin on his face
Each one of them stared down the Jounin while he gripped Naruto, the boy was struggling to get free from the jounin's hard grip. None of them had seen him move. He finally released his hold on the yellow hair boy and he jumped away, going through his pocket and pulling out a orange book.
" Okay, get ready then…..start. " Kakashi stated before burying his face in the book after making the statement
As soon as Kakashi finished his sentence, Sasuke jumped at him in order to try to get the bells. He threw a punch at Kakashi's head but the experienced jounin dodged it easily by ducking and countered by attempting at a leg sweep against the young Uchiha, Sasuke jumped in the air evading the counter of his teacher and aimed a kick at the jounin's head, Kakashi simply put his left hand up and blocked the attack from the young boy. He was about to kick the boy when his years of experience alerted him of some incoming danger, he quick kicked the Uchiha in the gut sending him crashing to the ground before catching the incoming kunai and held it in his hand waiting for Naruto to come out from behind the tree he was standing. Sasuke stood up shakily and looked across to see Kakashi standing in the middle of the training ground with his book still in his hand. The young Uchiha dusted himself off and got ready to attack again when he saw Naruto jumping out from behind the tree. Naruto stood in the middle of the training ground and Kakashi turned to face him, Sasuke was standing back waiting for the opportunity to get his hand on a bell. Naruto and Kakashi faced off each other, but Kakashi's face was still buried in his book, he would giggle every few seconds reading the book. Naruto balled up his fist and started running toward the lazy jounin, he was running at a rather fast speed which Kakashi did not expect from him. Kakashi saw Sasuke about to attack him also from the corner of his eye and he decided to put the book away to deal with the two boys. As soon as Naruto was five feet away from the jounin, he disappeared and appeared behind Kakashi hoping to catch the jounin off-guard. He launched the punch meant for Kakashi's head but Kakashi blocked the punch before kicking him away, the jounin was shocked when the boy turned into a puff of white smokes. ' A shadow clone ' thought going through a series of hand seals before saying ' Katon: Housenka no Jutsu ' and a bunch of fireballs shot out from his mouth toward Sasuke who was running toward him. Sasuke jumped, ducked, and managed to dodge all of the incoming fireballs, while going through his own hand seals before screaming ' Katon: Goukakyuu no Jutsu ' and a giant ball of fire shot out of his mouth toward Kakashi. The size of the fireball was very impressive for someone so young, Kakashi did the same hand seals before saying ' Katon: Goukakyuu no Jutsu ' and shooting out a fireball the same size toward the incoming. The two fireballs struggled for dominance for about a minute of so, before Kakashi had to cancel his to avoid the incoming shuriken that was coming from Naruto and Sakura.
Kakashi was impressed that they were cooperating together to handle him, but he was still going to test them further. Kakashi stood on the top branch of the tree to overlook all of them in the field. Naruto did the single hand seal required to perform his favorite ninjutsu before saying ' Tajuu Kage Bunshin no Jutsu ' and a hundred exact replicas of himself appeared around the field. The clones made a circle around the three and each clone took out ten shurikens each and threw them in every direction around the field. That was unexpected to all of them except for Naruto who thought of the plan, he needed to draw out the jounin and that one of the less destructive way he could do it. Kakashi used the same kunai to block most of the shurikens that came to where he was standing, some of them he just moved out the way to evade. Kakashi jumped down from the tree and did a single hand seal before he said 'Tajuu Kage Bunshin no Jutsu ' and he created five clones of himself and they all ran toward the three and the army of clones surrounding them. The clones ran toward Kakashi and his clones, Kakashi and the five clones swiftly handled all the clones, while the three genins just stood there and watch in awe at the man's skills. The real Kakashi then decided to take out his book and start reading again. After taking care of all the clones, Kakashi cancelled two of the clones, while he just leaned against a tree.
Sasuke was the first to snap out of it, and activated his Sharingan before he started running toward Kakashi who was hanging back reading, he was intercepted by a clone who kicked him in the adnomen sending him flying into the yellow hair boy. Sakura quickly started trying to get to the young Uchiha, but a clone of Kakashi jumped in front of her and pulled up the half of the Hitai that covered his left eye revealing his Sharingan eye, he quickly put her in a simple genjutsu and she was out of it. Sakura started seeing leaves float around her before she fell to the ground unconscious. The clone disappeared in a puff of smokes and the real Kakashi shook his head at how easy it was to take the girl out.
Sasuke was having a hard time keeping up with the jounin, even after he activated his doujutsu to fight the man. The man got around his whole taijutsu style, like he knew the style himself, and that was impossible because the man was not an Uchiha. They had only forty-five minutes left on the clock and neither one of them even got close to the bells. Sasuke jumped at the clone once again with a kick aimed for the man's head, but the clone ducked and did a leg sweep under the Uchiha, forcing the man to jump in the air. Sasuke twisted his body while in the air and lauched a powerful kick toward the clone once again, but the clone grabbed the leg and was about to launch the boy, when the was hit in the back by five kunais making his disappear in a puff of smokes. Sasuke landed on his feet and looked to see Naruto standing across from him with grin on his face. Sasuke walked toward the boy and they gave each other high-fives before they both turned to face off the last clone.
Naruto ran toward the clone, while Sasuke was going through a series of hand seals. Naruto launched a punch a the clones head, which was blocked by the clone. As soon as the clone was going to retaliate, the yellow hair boy did a five back flips landing besides the duck hair Uchiha. As soon as Naruto was away from the clone, Sasuke finished his hand seals, the clone was running toward the two, when the Uchiha said ' Katon: Goukakyuu no Jutsu ' and launched a massive fireball toward the clone. The clone of the jounin did some fast hand seals before saying ' Doton: Doryuu Heki no Jutsu ' and a barrier made of stone rose between himself and the fire ball. Sasuke cancelled the jutsu and took out a kunai getting ready to go get the clone. The clone jumped on the top of the wall and had to dodge three kunais as soon as he did.
Naruto started thinking about the test they were taking. Their survival test was surviving against Kakashi. But that did not make any sense. There was no one way that a Genin up against a Jounin would work. It was odd. There was something wrong with this. Kakashi was strong and he was still holding back against them, there was only two bells and three of them, and now they were nearly out of chakra. Or...
" Sasuke! " called Naruto to the young Uchiha
" Hn " answered the young boy in his usual way of talking
" I figured it out... This is not about the bells, so go get Sakura... Time is almost up " Naruto hurried as he took out some clear exploding tags from his holster.
" Where is she? " asked Sasuke looking at the boy confused
Naruto closed his eyes and sent his chakra out like Jiraiya taught him and he quickly found Sakura's chakra signature with a sweat-drop at how low her chakra was. Naruto opened his yes and still saw that the clone was just standing there on top of the rock wall just waiting for them to make the first move.
" She is behind the bushes to the west " Naruto pointed Sasuke to the location of the young girl.
Sasuke ran toward the bushes where Sakura was laying unconscious, while Sasuke was going to get Sakura, Naruto put his finger in a cross and said ' Kage Bunshin no Jutsu ' and a single clone appeared besides him. The clone took out some ink from his cargo pocket and started drawing some seals on the clear tag. The real Naruto ran toward the direction where Sakura and Sasuke was to tell them what the plan is, the clone was still drawing down the seals on the paper and he would put them on a kunai as soon as he was done. Kakashi on the tree wanted to take out the clone, but he was curious as to what the clone was doing. The jounin stood on the tree with one eyebrow raised at how quick the clone was drawing the symbols on the paper before wrapping them around the kunais.
Meanwhile, Naruto and Sasuke just stood over the unconscious body of Sakura since they shook her and she still didn't wake up. Neither of them knew how to wake somebody up from a genjutsu yet and Sasuke was annoyed by that fact. Naruto was also getting aggravated because they didn't have much time left to finish the exam. Suddenly an idea came to Naruto and he channeled some of his chakra to the girls body and she woke up screaming.
" KAMI, SASUKE-KUN IS DEAD " cried Sakura, Naruto and Sasuke sweat-dropped looking at the girl like 'what the fuck'.
" Uhmm...Sakura! The teme is right here...He's not dead " sweat-dropped Naruto, which had Sasuke glaring at him for the nickname.
" Hn... The dobe is right... I'm right here " an annoyed Sasuke looked at the girl. Sakura looked up and saw Sasuke standing besides Naruto with his hands in his pocket perfectly fine and she cried even more.
" Sasuke-kun... You're alright, I saw Kakashi-sensei cut your head off in front of me before I passed out " Sakura cried out loudly as she ran toward the boy and hugged him.
" Can you please get off of me " Sasuke told the girl with an annoyed look on his face.
" We don't have much time guys... So Sakura calm your ass down and pay attention " Naruto said as he looked at them
" Don't talk to me like that baka! " screeched Sakura glaring at the yellow head boy, while getting off of Sasuke
" Ok guys listen... I figured out the purpose of this test " started Naruto before he was cut off by Sasuke " To get the bells and not get sent back to the academy right "
" No... The purpose of the test is to make us work together as a team... " continued Naruto looking at the two, who just looked at him like he was stupid.
" Then why does he have only two bells? " smirked Sakura looking at the boy
" To put us against each other.. He's a jounin and we are straight out of the academy, Do you really think we can beat him one on one?... He's stronger than he appears to be, he's been holding back since the beginning of the exam to check us out. Our only way to pass this exam is through team work. " finished Naruto looking at the two with a dead serious look on his face.
Sasuke was the first to understand where the yellow hair boy was coming from because he saw what Kakashi was capable of. Sasuke nodded at the boy, which had Sakura shocked because she didn't think Sasuke needed Naruto's help to pass the exam. She eventually looked at him and also nodded. The three walked back to the opening where the clone was done with the kunai waiting for them. They all stopped behind the clone and was waiting to come up with a plan to take down the jounin.
" Ok, here's the plan... " Naruto put his thumb and his index under his chin to think of a plan. He took out the shurikens that he had in his holster and handed them to Sakura before he instructed Sasuke to do the same, they both gave Sakura all their shurikens.
" Sasuke... Me and you will be doing the heavy attacks with taijutsu and ninjutsu. " explained Naruto looking at the boy and Sasuke nodded
" Sakura since you have no skill whatsoever...Attack him from afar with the shurikens to keep him on his toes " smirked Naruto looking at the girl, who just glared at him in return.
" Okay...Ready " they both nodded at him. " Lets go " The yellow hair boy said, as he and Sasuke started running toward the jounin at an impressive speed. Kakashi jumped down from the earth wall and started running toward the two. The three of them engaged in an all out taijutsu fight, with Kakashi holding his own against the two easily. They were all fighting at a high speed with both of them being able to keep up with the jounin, while Sakura was standing waiting for the opportunity to throw the kunais. The taijutsu fight lasted for about three minutes, before Naruto looked at Sasuke and nodded, they both jumped back leaving Kakashi with a raised eyebrow. Sasuke three a smoke bomb and Naruto yelled " Now Sakura " and she started throwing the kunais and the shurikens in the general direction that they left Kakashi.
The jounin did some hand seals before yelling " Fuuton: Daitoppa no jutsu " Using the only wind style jutsu that he can use even though he has a lot of them in his arsenal, to clear the smoke blocking his vision. The smoke cleared a little bit and he saw a bunch of shurikens and kunais heading for him. ' They really going all out huh, I did tell them to attack like they intended to kill ' he uncovered his right eye and his sharingan activated and he started dodging and blocking kunais and shurikens like his life depended on it, his life depend on it. He dodged three kunais and as soon as they passed him, they transformed into clones of Naruto in a puff of smokes and they took the bells from the jounin before making a run for it.
Naruto didn't even get a chance to activate the seals on his kunais before Kakashi put his hands up admitting defeat. Naruto threw a bell to Sasuke and threw the other to Sakura and waited for Kakashi that was walking toward them with a serious look on his face. Kakashi made it in front of the three that was waiting for him and he looked at them with his usual eye smile.
" You three...Pass congratulations " Kakashi eyed them
" Yippeeeeeeeee " Naruto jumped in the air dancing around
" So you figured out the point of the test huh " Kakashi said to them
" Hn " replied Sasuke with a smirk on his face
" Yeah, we figured it out, since you only had two bells and Pervy Sage always told me that a team was a three ninja cell. So we had to come up with a plan that included all three of us " Naruto happily told his sensei
" Ummmmm Pervy Sage? " was all Kakashi said
" That's my ' Guardian ' " answered Naruto looking at his sensei
" Okay... We are officially known as Team Kakashi now... " Kakashi didn't get to finish his sentence as he was interrupted by Naruto " I think we should put the name of the Team to a vote " Naruto smirked.
" Anybody for team Kakashi " said Naruto, Kakashi and Sakura raised their hands and said 'Hai'
Naruto did some hand seals and said ' Tajuu Kage Bunshin no Jutsu ' and created one hundred clones on the spot which surrounded them. Kakashi sweatdropped, he was cheated by Naruto.
" Now anybody for Team Bad-Ass " Naruto smirked as all the clones and Sasuke raised their hands.
" Hahahahah. That's One Hundred and Two to Two... So the team is officially known as Team Bad-Ass " laughed Naruto looking at the man in front of him. Naruto and Sasuke gave each other high fives once again and Kakashi just ruffled their hair, before he gave Sakura an eye smile.
" Okay...Now we have to report the result to the Hokage at the Hokage Tower " Kakashi started walking away leaving the training ground with the three kids following him closely.
Ten minutes later, Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and their sensei Kakashi arrived at the Hokage Tower and they knocked on the office of the aged Kage waiting to be let in. Sarutobi Hiruzen, The Sandaime Hogake of The Village Hidden in The Leaves, heard the knock on the door and told them to come in. The team walked in and saw several other teams in the tower talking to the Hokage. They recognized the other teams as the nine new rookies to graduate out of the academy.
The stood in the back of the group and waited for the Hokage to address them, since the man was already talking about something different to the other teams. Kakashi took out his book and opened, before he felt his life in danger and when he looked he saw Kurenai glaring daggers at him, so he did the only thing he could in this situation, he put the book closer to his face. He started reading his book with Kurenai still glaring at him, he didn't even bother to throw a glance at her.
Two minutes later, Sarutobi finished what he was saying to the other Teams and he looked to the back of the room at Team Bad-Ass, though he didn't know the name of the team yet.
" Okay...Team Kakashi..." he was interrupted by Naruto
" It's Team Bad-Ass now Hokage-jiji " corrected Naruto smirking at the old man, Sarutobi looked at Kakashi with a raised eyebrow but the man just shrugged before putting his book back in his pocket. Everybody looked at them and already knew who came up with such a name
" Team Bad-Ass huh? " questioned the old man looking at the team
" Who came up with that name? " asked Sarutobi looking at Naruto. Naruto and Sasuke pointed at each other, Kakashi kept his hands in his pocket, while Sakura pointed at Naruto.
" I should have known it was you Naruto. Well anyhow all the teams start doing missions tomorrow, So Y'all can go get some rest and take the rest of the day off " instructed Sarutobi.
Multiple Shadow Clone Technique
Tajū Kage Bunshin no Jutsu
Type: A-rank, Supplementary
Users: Naruto Uzumaki, Kakashi Hatake
This jutsu is basically a massive version of the Shadow Clone Technique. Instead of a few clones, it creates a few hundred clones (or a number of equal grandeur). This is considered a forbidden technique, because it can potentially be dangerous to the person performing it, seeing as all of the clones are given an equal amount of chakra directly from the user. Naruto learned the technique from the scroll of forbidden seals written by the First Hokage and used it to save Iruka from Mizuki. Few people are able to use this technique effectively, due to the large amount of chakra it consumes. This technique is also used by Naruto to train quickly, since all the clones share their experiences with Naruto.
Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique
Katon: Gōkakyū no Jutsu
Type: C-rank, Offensive, Close range (0-5m)
Users: Most Uchiha clan members, Jiraiya, Yamashiro Aoba, Oki, most Konoha nin above Chunin level
Utilizing a large amount of chakra, a large ball of flame is exhaled from the user's mouth. When an Uchiha clan member masters this technique, they are recognized as an adult. In the anime, this seems to be a fairly common technique amongst Konoha ninja.
Fire Release: Phoenix Immortal Fire Technique
Katon: Hōsenka no Jutsu
Type: C-rank, Offensive, Close range (0-5m)
Users: Sasuke Uchiha
This jutsu sends multiple balls of fire at a target. It is also possible to hide shurikens within the fireballs, creating an unexpected secondary surprise attack. For the most part, this jutsu is used as a distraction.
Earth Release: Earth Style Wall
Type: B-rank, Defensive, Short range (0-5m)
Users: Third Hokage
The user spits out a stream of mud that quickly grows and solidifies into a strong, protective wall.
