Namikaze Naruto: True Heir of the Rikudō Sennin
Hey sorry for the inconvenience of no updates lately, but I've been wracking my brain trying to think of ideas only realise I had to rewrite it. Most stuff from the old story will be in this one, but I've made it a Naruto/Bleach story now so that there is more to it that will allow me to expand the story more.
Hope you guys like this.

Chapter 1: Prologue
My name is Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze; I used to go by the name of Naruto Uzumaki instead until I was told of my heritage. All my life I had believed that I had been abandoned by my parents because of what I hold, so you can imagine my surprise when I learnt my father was Minato Namikaze the Yondaime Hokage, also known as the Konoha no Kiroi Senko (Konoha's Yellow Flash) the very same man who sealed the Kyuubi no Yoko in my gut. For a long time I was pissed at my gather for the burden being placed on my life, on some level I feel like he trusted me with the task of keeping the Kyuubi in control, believing I could tame its power, but there are some times where I wish I had never entrusted with the task.
My mother was Uzumaki Kushina, Red Death of Konoha, from Uzushiogakure no Sato (Village Hidden among the Whirling Tides). They say she was beautiful, a red head with a tomboyish attitude similar to how I use to be, and she was also a Kunoichi of the Whirlpool Country which was destroyed at the beginning of the Third Great Shinobi War. My mother was the only known survivor as there was no proof anyone else had survived. The only problem is that she is assumed to be dead, meaning she either abandoned me at the hands of the village or she passed on but went missing.
I had learnt about my heritage after I brought back Tsunade to be Hokage, Jiraiya had decided it was time that I should know who I really was, I was so happy to find out I actually belonged to people that loved me and didn't abandon me like I had thought all these years.
I had then learnt I had a special bloodline called the Omni-Elemental, this allows me to use all elements as if they were my primary element, and with me being a jutsu lover, I couldn't wait to learn all the possible jutsu out there and even create some along the way. This bloodline was apparently from the Namikaze side of the family; the Uzumaki side was a mystery as my mother was a bit secretive about her past as it was a painful issue to her when speaking to others about it.
I am now 17 years of age; four years ago I was banished from my home village Konohagakure no Sato (Village Hidden in the Leaves) all because of the foolish council thinking they know what's good for their village.
I was banished for the sole reason of not completing a mission, a mission I wasn't even the leader of, the mission where I had to bring my ex-teammate, Sasuke Uchiha back to the village all because he left in order to gain more power, of course the council in there infinite wisdom decided that he was too valuable to let to go and sent, Shikamaru Nara, Kiba Inuzuka and his partner Akamaru Chouji Akimichi and Neji Hyuuga.
All of us pursued Sasuke through the forest because he had teamed up with the Sound Four, eventually the group broke as they started to have one-on-one fights with the Sound Four and then their fifth member, Kimimaro. Chouji and Neji both ended up near death after defeating their opponents, Jirōbō and Kidōmaru. Kiba and Akamaru were nearly killed by Sakon and Ukon, but were saved by the timely intervention of Kankurō. This situation was repeated with Shikamaru being saved by Temari from Tayuya. I then engaged Kimimaro in battle for a while but was not a match for him. Rock Lee saved him in order for me to continue pursuing Sasuke. Gaara, in turn, saved Rock Lee, and both were then saved by Kimimaro's succumbing to disease. When I faced off with Sasuke the battle ended in Sasuke's favour, but he chose not kill me. In the end, the mission was a failure, as Sasuke successfully joined up with Orochimaru. I was so weak back then I felt ashamed. After that mission I made the decision that I and he were enemies, the next time I saw him, only one of us would walk away.
I now have many enemies despite being at the young age of 17, the Akatsuki who are after me for the power of the Kyuubi for their own uses, Orochimaru, who most likely wants the Kyuubi's power himself, but honestly I just want to kill him for killing the Sandaime Hokage, the only person to ever be nice to be as a kid and my ex-teammate…Uchiha Sasuke.
Not long after being released from the hospital I was called up to the Council Chambers that resided within the Hokage Tower, I still remember everything, even to this day.
As Naruto entered the Council Chamber he could feel the tension that was in the air which seemed to suffocate the room, taking a good look around he was able to see all those that were present.
At the top in the centre was Shimura Danzo, he was a manipulative man who would use other people and sacrifice them if it meant getting what he wanted, there were also rumours that he had worked with Orochimaru on occasion but it was never proven, just like all rumours on the man.
The two other elders either side of Danzo were Utatane Koharu and Mitokado Homura, ex-teammates of Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Sandaime Hokage.
Utatane Koharu holds the belief that the group is more important than any of its individual members. Because of this, she always tries to do what she thinks is the best for Konoha, even if it goes against the Hokage's or her opinion. She is also quite demure, but does not let this stop her from voicing her opinion. In fact, despite this, Koharu is one of the few people able to put the Fifth Hokage in her place when she oversteps her authority. Like Homura, she is more militant than the Hokage she served under have been, and sometimes leans more to Danzo's point of view.
Homura is somewhat of an authoritarian, but he always has the village's best interests in mind. Like Koharu, he is more militant than the Hokage he served under have been, and sometimes leans more towards Danzo's point of view.
The others in the council were all the clan heads of the Hyuuga, Inuzuka, Aburame, Akimichi, Nara, and Yamanaka.
Hyuuga Hiashi was a strange person sometimes he neither hated nor liked Naruto, but once he defeated Neji he started to admire the boy as he 'defied fate' as one might say. He was however Namikaze Minato's best friend, but because of the laws placed around Naruto he was unable to anything for the boy, leaving him to the wolves, one might say.
Inuzuka Tsume had always like Naruto even before she knew who he was, she had liked him because his personality was more like hers in every sense of the word, the fact that he had a feral look about him didn't do any justice either. She was one of Uzumaki Kushina closest friend; she had tried to adopt the boy into her clan knowing he would be able to learn their clan techniques as he is more of an animal, similar to all Inuzuka's.
Aburame Shibi had liked Naruto as he could relate with the boy considering that his clan held bugs within their bodies much like Naruto holding in the Kyuubi, they weren't stupid to relate the two as they were two separate beings. Shibi had actually gained some sense of respect for the Namikaze as he had been able to fight through all the insults glares etc. when any lesser man would cave.
The Ino-Shika-Cho trio had also always respected and liked the boy as they were probably the smartest clans out there, they could easily tell that the boy was just that a boy. They had also like Naruto for the simple fact there children admired him the more he grew up which actually made them train harder than ever.
They were all now sitting in their clan seats along with Tsunade in the Hokage seat. On the other side of the room sat the Jonin's and Chunins that were Naruto's friends and sensei's as they had been told to come.
Danzo looking as Naruto with narrowed eyes spoke up. "Do you know the reason for why you've been called?" He asked the confused blonde haired boy who blinked at him.
"Ermm…not really, I was just told I had to come here." Naruto explained with a raised eyebrow as if asking why he was here.
Danzo for a moment looked smug for some reason. "We, of the council have viewed everything that had happened on the latest mission and given certain circumstances, we have voted to have you exiled from Konohagakure, indefinitely!" He said with conviction making almost every shinobi snap their heads in his direction in shock.
"WHAT?" Tsunade shouted in outrage.
"Naruto Uzumaki, failed to bring back Sasuke Uchiha and allowed him to go to Otogakure, with Orochimaru, for that action he must be banished." Koharu spoke up while looking at Naruto with hate through her squinted eyes.
"He also used his tenant's power while fighting the Uchiha, putting his life in danger along with anyone else who may come in contact with the boy in the future, Naruto Uzumaki is a ticking time bomb ready to explode." Homura explained.
"We wanted to execute him. The incident at the Valley of the End was not the only time that demonic chakra has been sensed. It was reported on his first mission out of the village, as well as during the Chunin exams and after them when Sunagakure was invading. We gave him a chance, but enough is enough! However, we've seen how you favour the boy, so decided on exiling him instead." Danzo said directing his attention to the angered Tsunade, Naruto however kept his head lowered.
Luckily all of Naruto's friends already knew of the Kyuubi and didn't see a problem with the blonde haired boy, so it wasn't so much as a secret anymore.
"His seal has not been damaged- it most certainly isn't breaking" Tsunade snapped. "Have you no faith in the Yondaime's sacrifice?"
"The Yondaime, gifted as he was, was not infallible. And-"
"Jiraiya's been keeping an eye on the boy. He's a seal master in his own right! So you honestly think that he wouldn't notice if anything was wrong with it?" Tsunade was absolutely livid. 'How dare they? Just who do they think they're dealing with?'
"The seal that the Yondaime crafted for the boy was one of his own design! It's one of a kind, and only the Yondaime knew how it worked properly! Jiraiya is not qualified to make decisions in the boy!"
"And you are?" Tsunade knew that she had to end this. The mutterings of the council, particularly the civilian half… it wasn't comforting. She opened her mouth to speak, but Koharu cut her off.
"So you say that the seal isn't breaking? Well then, what excuse has Uzumaki got for using the demonic chakra? If what you're saying is correct, then the fact that he can call up the demons chakra himself is something that's even more troubling! At least the Uchiha's seal warrants an excuse for his behaviour!" 'That little…how dare she?' Tsunade was struggling to keep her temper.
Before anyone could speak they heard chuckling, turning to the owner aver saw Naruto with his head down while chuckling, but not a humorous chuckle, but a hollow chuckle. "You know…" He muttered getting everyone's attention. "…I was wondering how long it would take the council to pull this one, treating me as the scapegoat, all because you old bag of bones can't even shit right without help, so what do you do? Pick the usual punching bag to place all blame on because of your incompetence!" He spoke with such coldness that many actually shivered from it while the elders grew outraged.
"Listen here boy…" Danzo started only for a kunai to go flying past his head cutting some hair off the side of his head; looking ahead he saw Naruto with his arm outstretched and a cold look in his eyes.
"No…you listen to me!" He practically commanded, everyone else looked at Naruto in shock at the way he was acting. "You say I'm dangerous because I have access to the Kyuubi' power and I'll use it to practically kill and destroy? If that is the case, then why is this village still standing?" He asked rhetorically while looking around. "I have every reason to say fuck it and release Kyuubi and reduce the village to nothing, but I don't because I actually have people who see me for me and not some weapon, monster, abomination that should be destroyed. Everything I have ever done is for their safety, I have put my life on the line protecting everyone who is precious to me, and I'm the one on trial here, being told I am a ticking time bomb…right now, you have no idea how close you are." He spoke as his flashed red for a second then a sort of violet before going blue which startled everyone there.
"You are a danger to everyone here; it is only a matter of time before your presence brings destruction to Konoha." Koharu spoke through gritted teeth, anger clearly displayed on her face.
All of a sudden everything seemed to click in Naruto's mind before a small smile played out on his face. "I know the real reason you're all doing this…" He said with a smug tone making the elders and the civilian council stiffen. "…Your fear for those outside the village is amazing…you're not worried about the people of this village, you're worried about yourselves, worried that I have a group of S-Rank missing-nin after me for the power of Kyuubi, and you know they will come for me, just like Itachi Uchiha and Kisame Hoshigaki did recently…am I right?" He asked with an arched brow.
"What?" Tsume asked confused not knowing who this group was. "
"The Akatsuki." Jiraiya spoke up coming from out of the shadows having listened to everything and had a scowl on his face. "Are a group of S-Rank missing nin after the Biju's power for god only knows what…and what Naruto is getting at, is that the elders and civilian council want to banish him to protect themselves."
Everyone who had heard were gobsmacked that Naruto was in such danger and yet the village were throwing him away to save themselves.
"That is irrelevant as of now…right now we will place a vote, whether or not Naruto Uzumaki will be banished or not." Danzo spoke up drawing all attention back to himself. "All for?" He asked raisng his own hand up along with the advisors and civilian council which was actually the majority of the council now that clans have become empty in the village. "And against?" He spoke with a smug tone already knowing the result as Tsunade and the clans held their hands up with defeated looks but nevertheless showing Naruto their support.
"Naruto Uzumaki, you will be out of this village within 24 hours or you will executed."
"You can't do this…"
"Tsunade." Naruto said stopping Tsunade in her tracks after using her name instead of 'Baa-Chan'; looking up at him she saw Naruto who had a smile on his face despite was happening. "Don't worry, this is the best for everyone and you know it deep down…" He said with a sigh seeing her look down, turning to Danzo he got a smirk on his face. "…Oh and when you record this down, I want my full name there…Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze, son of Minato Namikaze and Kushina Uzumaki…so when you people find yourself in trouble with your enemies or if Akatsuki decide to attack anyway…don't you dare ask for my help because as far as I'm concerned…this village can burn to the ground." He said with crimson eyes staring at the council before leaving the Council Chambers leaving many people stunned at what they had just been told.
"He's the son of…" Sakura spoke not able to finish the sentence.
"Yeah…" Kakashi answered with a sad sigh at failing his sensei's' son.
"And this village has just banished him…" Neji whispered in shock.
The elders, civilian and shinobi sides of the Council weren't fairing much better but Inoichi spoke what everyone was thinking. "Dear god, what have we done."
Obviously I wouldn't let the village burn just because of my anger at the elders, but for the first time in my life I just wanted them to feel fear, believing that I wouldn't help them, the only reason I ever would is because of Tsunade and Jiraiya as well as my precious people.
After that I had gone home to pack up all of my stuff along with scrolls on my bloodline and heritage, before I could leave however Jiraiya had come to my apartment to give me a scroll from my father that he told me to open when I wanted to get really strong and Tsunade soon came around with a couple scrolls on medical jutsu knowing that I would need to be able to heal myself despite the Kyuubi healing abilities.
After getting a biggest hug I ever thought possible from Tsunade I had said goodbye to the two Sennin, I left my apartment, and eventually the village to live my life only kami knows where.
After reading up more about my bloodline I soon came to the point where it is possible to combine elements to create a sub-element so that I can re-create, Mokuton, Hyōton, and many more, with this I just knew it would help me to become extremely strong.
In the first few months I eventually came into a life and death situation when all of a sudden I blacked out, when I had woken up I felt stronger, stronger than I ever could feel, as I looked around I had noticed the are looked like an explosion rocked the place, until I saw a puddle where I noticed my eyes had turned a greyish-purple iris and sclera with circular ripples in it.
After some investigating I learned that the eyes were a bloodline, a Dojutsu that was unable to shut off like the Sharingan and Byakugan. I soon learnt that people viewed it as nothing but a myth, that the only person to have had the eyes was the Rikudō Sennin, knowing that it made me feel special for the first time in my life.
It was also with this Dojutsu that I seemed to gain knowledge in my dreams about jutsu only for the Rinnegan, as it was called, and that the reason for my Omni-Elemental bloodline was because the Namikaze's were derived from the Rikudō Sennin, just like the Uchiha and Senju, however the family tree had been lost for generations.
It wasn't until about 5 months later where I was on the way to Kumogakure to train more in my Raiton element and perhaps even my Ranton element which I had read up on and learnt that holders of the particular sub-element reside in Kumo as well as two fellow Jinchuriki, of course I gained this information through some spies had recruited.
This was also the same time I met my first Kumo shinobi who would become friends with me as well as allies, and Iwagakure shinobi, who would become my enemy, father like son. It was also the day that something amazing happened.
Outskirts of Kumogakure
Jumping through the trees Naruto was on his way towards Kumo in order get his Raiton element mastered despite the fact that he is already well versed in that element, but it wouldn't hurt to go to the place that holds the most knowledge of the element to learn more.
Just as he was about to jump towards another tree he could hear the sounds of battle not far and being the person he is, just had to know what was going on, so in that case he jumped towards where the battle was.
As he got close he was able to pick out four Kumo shinobi 3 females, two of them blondes while one had red-brownish hair and a male who had white spiky hair.
Across from them were twenty Iwa shinobi who had lecherous grins on their faces at seeing the three beautiful woman, something he didn't like to see, but what he could tell is that the Kumo shinobi were a bit worn out while it was clear a battle had been fought given the damage of the area and dead bodies of Iwa nin.
"Damn, this is bad…Yugito, can't you use the Nibi's chakra." The one with red-brownish hair spoke to the young woman named Yugito.
Yugito, now that he could see her clearly was a beautiful woman, she purple slit eyes which by the way it sounded, was because of her demon, the Nibi no Bakeneko. 'Well, at least I've found a fellow Jinchuriki at last.' He also noted she wore what looked like the traditional Kumo shinobi ware as well as a headband on her forehead.
"Cant…I'm too exhausted to be access her chakra right now Karui." She replied to the now named Karui.
Karui was also a beautiful woman in a tom boyish sort of way, she was also dark skinned while wearing a standard kunoichi Kumo shinobi attire with her headband in the form of a bandana; she also had a sword strapped to her back. She had a long mane of red hair with brown underneath flowing down her back, and she had some of the most beautiful topaz eyes.
"This is very bad, I knew I should have been nicer to the Raikage, but no, I had to screw up and now he's sent us to our deaths, I honestly didn't think he would be that upset that I hadn't eaten my cereal." The only male spoke who was crouched down low also wearing standard Kumo attire with his head band tied around his forehead. He had short spiky white hair with black eyes and sucking on a lollypop, he like Karui also wore a sword strapped to his back.
"Shut up Omoi, he didn't send us to our deaths…right Samui?" Karui asked the blonde woman uncertainty who blond short haired woman with a massive chest stood lazily with one hand on her back as if leaning on it. She also wore similar clothing to Karui with a mesh shirt and a sword in her hand.
"Right." She said shortly.
One of the Iwa nin started walking forward. "Why don't you ladies just come peacefully…and we'll show you our appreciation." He said with a leer while his companions laughed harshly making the woman feel a trickle of fear.
"You wish." Yugito said with a hiss.
"Oh? And who's gonna stop us from takin' our prize." He said as his friends started moving towards the girls and Omoi.
Naruto deciding enough was enough took action jumping high up he started swirling chakra in his right hand before diving down at the Iwa nin. "ME! RASENGAN!" coming down fast he smashed the Rasengan down on an Iwa nin while catching a couple more in the blast radius.
Standing up from his crouched position Naruto looked down to see the dead body of the shinobi and kicked him away while looking around him to see he had been circled by the shinobi while the Kumo shinobi stood off to the side in shock at seeing what looked like a mini Yondaime Hokage.
"Who the hell're you?" A gruff Iwa nin demanded.
"Wait a minute…" another spoke almost hesitantly. "…I know you, your Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze aren't you, the son of the Yondaime Hokage…you were banished from Konoha all because you held the Kyuubi huh? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, we can finally have our revenge, while taking the Kyuubi for ourselves!" He spoke almost in glee while everyone stood stock still at the information.
The Kumo nin were in no better shape as their jaws were hanging open at the information.
"Namikaze…" Omoi mumbled.
"Son of the Yondaime Hokage…" Samui almost spluttered out.
"Kyuubi…?" Yugito asked herself in shock.
"That's right kitten, I could feel his presence anywhere, there's no doubt about it, and he's the container of the Kyuubi." The Nibi spoke in her mind.
'Why would Konoha banish their Jinchuriki?'
'Fear kitten…fear make people do a lot of stupid stuff, but if I'm right from what I can feel, banishing this young man was their biggest mistake ever.
'I haven't felt power like him since the Rikudō Sennin existed.'
Unaware of Yugito's internal conversation, Karui had only one word that summed everything up. "Whoa…"
Naruto narrowed his rippled eyes at the Iwa nin while gathering chakra around him ready for anything. "Yes, but the question is, how the hell do you know that?"
The Iwa nin just chuckled. "Information about you is being passed around pretty easily, it's as if someone's out to get ya kid, don't blame them, having the Kyuubi, being the son of one the strongest shinobi, and then there are your eyes…the Rinnegan, seems like someone knows more about you than you think."
Naruto's eyes suddenly turned icy cold, on his short journey he has had to kill many bandits and shinobi alike, at first he hated it but eventually got use to it understanding that he had no choice, this was his life now, and either way, he would have to kill eventually. Over time he had learnt to go into a sort of 'Zone' where he would be a monster in battle.
All of a sudden all the Iwa nin pulled out kunai and shuriken intending on turning him into a pin cousin much to the Kumo nins horror. All at once every single weapon was thrown at Naruto who simply closed his eyes, raisng his arms up either side of him his eyes snapped open as he called out. "Shinra Tensei!" to everyone's shock an incredible force exploded from out of Naruto blowing all weapons away at a much faster speed while creating a small crater underneath him.
"Don't underestimate me…or you'll pay for it!" He exclaimed as he flipped through hand seals before calling out. "Shōton: Shuriken Ranbu!" Lights started to shimmer around Naruto as shurikens started to form out of crystals before spinning around him like a tornado, thrusting his right arm out in front of him he sent his shurikens soaring for the five Iwa nin who were frozen in the spot causing them to be shredded from the crystal shurikens that tore through the skin with such force that they slammed them into the surrounding trees.
Sensing movement from his right he spun around while flipping a kunai out of his sleeve blocking a kunai in the hands of one of the nin, pushing against it he caused the nin to stumble back before he used his free hand to knock his opponents kunai out of hand before thrusting his own into his heart and kicking the body away with his right foot and catching the kunai that he knocked away.
Spinning around he threw his two kunai at two Iwa nin, who came at him, hitting them in the foreheads effectively killing them. '8 down, man, these guys are weak, if I didn't know any better I'd say they were High Genin – Low Chunin.'
Hearing a noise that sounded like a 'Swoosh' he spun around only to came face to face with the end of a katana when all of a sudden he seemed to black out.
Opening up his eyes he soon realised he wasn't in the same forest anymore as he looked around he could only see what looked like a tropical forest, only when he looked up all he could see was red, as if the sky was on fire, which was strange since he couldn't feel any heat whatsoever.
"I was wondering when you would come." A voice spoke up which sounded almost regal.
Turning around he came upon the sight of what looked like a man dressed in a samurai outfit, the only strange thing is that the outfit was made out of fire, while bits of it were metal such as the knee-caps, elbow pad, shoulder pads, feet and gloves.
The outfit gave off a powerful feel, while also feeling like he should welcome it with open arms like it's a part of him. "Who are you?"
"You're Zanpakuto." The figure spoke simply as if no explanations were needed.
"Zanpakuto? What's that?" Naruto confused.
The figure chuckled behind its helmet. "A Zanpakuto is a manifestation of a person's soul, it is extremely rare for a human to ever obtain a Zanpakuto but that is irrelevant right now seeing as you have one. Anyway Zanpakuto's are unique to their owner, as the swords are both reflections of their owners soul and power, and sentient beings unto themselves hence me. The physical form of a Zanpakuto is a sword; this sword will be a representation of your soul and will be formed to be one with you in a way."
"So…you're saying that you are a sword? And I'm the only one who can use you?" He asked.
"Yes, there are a few things first however, every Zanpakuto has its own unique name, a Zanpakuto can determine whether or not its wielder is worthy of its power and also each Zanpakuto have their own true form, this isn't mine at the moment, you could say this is my first form in a way."
"Ok, I understand more…so you say each has its own name, what's yours?" Naruto asked with a raised brow.
"Well, normally people don't hear their Zanpakuto's name straight away, but I got a feeling you aren't like the others…very well, my name is Ryūjin Jakka." As soon as the name was spoken, Naruto could literally feel the power that came just from the name.
"Ryūjin Jakka huh? I like it." Naruto spoke with a grin.
Ryūjin Jakkaalso chuckled. "All Zanpakuto are different as they each have their own ability, mine is the ability to control all fire, big or small. There are also different levels when it comes to Zanpakuto which are, sealed; this is the base form of the Zanpakuto, like so…" Opening his hand fire swirled around it before settling into his palm and stretching out and eventually forming a sword.
The sword was one of the most amazing things he had ever seen; it must have been at least 5 ft. long, standard katana with a dark purple handle and a circular hand guard with what looked like a phoenix engraved around the edge. The scabbard was a royal purple with a red tassel that hung off the top just underneath the guard.
"This is the sealed form; the next form is called Shikai (Initial Release) the second form available to a Zanpakuto. To activate it, the wielder needs to learn the name of their Zanpakuto. This is not as easy as simply picking a name, as the living spirit of the Zanpakuto already has its own name. Therefore, the wielder must be able to communicate and harmonize with their Zanpakuto effectively, which requires being able to speak to the spirit within its world, very much like we are now. However it is the third form, Bankai that is most difficult to acquire, one must be able to materialize and subjugate their Zanpakuto spirit. Materialization means the opposite of getting dragged into the Zanpakuto's inner world. Instead the wielder needs to summon the Zanpakuto's spirit into the physical world. It usually takes 10 years or more to achieve, plus the experience needed to master it. By achieving this, the power can increase ten-fold, however even with the usual time; I have faith in your ability."
"How come I have this power though?" Naruto asked with a raised brow.
"Ahh that is a good question my boy…well first off what do you know about the Shinigami?" Ryūjin Jakka enquired.
"Err…just that it was the one to put Kyuubi inside of me."
"Correct." Ryūjin Jakka said with a nod. "But that's not all, the Shinigami goes around the world searching for pure souls, like you, to do his work for him in a way by giving them powers, a Zanpakuto for instance is a tool of the Shinigami."
"So you're saying I'm part Shinigami?" Naruto asked in shock.
"In way yes I am, but more of the fact you have been touched by it and given a gift." Ryūjin Jakka explained.
"Well then, I guess I should put on my resume, Shinobi/Jinchuriki/Shinigami under job huh?" Naruto said with a chuckle
"Haha, you must be careful though, with having the Kyuubi within you, it may corrupt the Shinigami powers. But be warned also that there will be people out there with Zanpakuto's, they may not all be good either."
Naruto's mouth was practically through the floor with the information provided and couldn't help but feel giddy. "Awesome, so how do I use you, or ermm…work with you is that's the right way…I'm not use to this sort of thing."
Ryūjin Jakka just laughed. "It's ok my boy, in time you will learn as we grow together, but for now I will give you the knowledge you will need to use me. Simply touch the Zanpakuto within my hand, and all information needed will be given." He said holding out his hand, Naruto without hesitation grasped the scabbard part when a rush of feelings flew into him, and power of the likes he had never felt before enveloped him in its pure energy while information flew to his brain.
Naruto suddenly felt like he had awoken from a dream until the world came into focus just as a katana was about to strike his head, bringing his arm to block the hit he didn't expect to find a katana in his hand, bringing it up quickly he block his opponents katana and pushed him off sending him back.
Looking down at the blade, everything that had happened moments earlier suddenly came back to him causing a grin to form on his face. Putting the sword up in front of him so it was horizontal he grasped the scabbard with his left arm tightly as he started pulling on the handle.
All around him the temperature started to go up causing everyone to back away from him cautiously as the grass beneath his feet started to catch fire while a red haze covered his body.
"Is the Kyuubi?" Karui asked Yugito.
"No, this is something else." She replied while shaking her head.
"Where the hell did that sword come from?" Omoi asked not expecting an answer.
Samui eyed Naruto with calculative eyes. 'Who is this boy, everything seems like some fairy tale, as soon as this over, I want answers.'
Naruto's eyes snapped open as his Rinnegan seemed to glow, pulling out the sword all the way he called out. "Banshō Issai Kaijin to Nase, Ryūjin Jakka!" What came next was something no-one would ever forgot, fire engulfed the katana with such unnatural heat that the surroundings started to catch fire just from the intensity, the fire from around the katana grew and enveloped Naruto himself who seemed to be in a state of peacefulness as the fire shot up into the sky turning the once blue sky, red.
And just like that the all the fire that surrounded Naruto vanished, only envelop the katana, handle included as well as Naruto's right arm. Placing the scabbard in his belt he brought Ryūjin Jakka in front of him and swung ahead causing a wave of intense heat to spew forth enveloping ten Iwa nin, unfortunately they didn't have time to scream as the heat turned them to dust, incinerating them.
Turning around he jabbed forward stabbing an Iwa nin trying to sneak up on him, fire exploded from the katana wrapping around the enemy as his screams pierced the air before he was burnt to a crisp before copying the same thing with the last remaining nin.
Sighing in relief Naruto placed the katana back in its scabbard, which dispelled the flames before he turned to see four stunned Kumo nin. "I don't know about you, but I could really do with getting to Kumo right about now."
After that they took me to the Raikage where explained everything that had happened to me to him ever since I was banished, as well as the Zanpakuto. I was still in shock that I was part Shinigami but couldn't wait until I found others like me. I soon learnt a lot of techniques from my Zanpakuto which are called Hadō, which are the destructive spells, my favourite, and Bakudō the more defensive spells, very helpful, they were classed as Kido, which is 'Demon Way'.
After the Raikage found out who I was he decided that he would help train me which made the four Kumo shinobi to look on in shock, which I had seen to many times lately.
When I asked why, he simply told me that when I became a legend, that to mention he had trained me, which I had to admit, wasn't a bad deal. So from that day on, I learnt from the Raikage and sometimes his brother who called himself Killer Bee, the Hachibi no Kyogyū Jinchuriki.
They taught me a lot about Raiton to the point where I could use it from any part of my body like it was nothing. I also learnt some Ranton, not a lot, but enough to get me by.
I stayed there for six months, integrating with their culture and getting to know everybody, I started seeing the Raikage and Killer Bee as two crazy older brothers, while I became closer to Yugito, Samui and Karui, I knew they were trying for my affection, but at the time I was unable to give it to them.
Killer Bee had told me about an island where he learnt to control the Hachibi's chakra and offered to take me, despite how much I felt I needed to I knew I couldn't at the time so I told him I would when I was ready seeing as I felt I was nowhere near strong enough yet.
When I eventually had to leave I said goodbye to everyone, except for the three girls, nope, but I gave them each one hell of a kiss that they would remember for a while.
My next destination was Kirigakure to learn about Suiton jutsu seeing as that is where they specialize in that element. While there I had met Mei Terumi the sexy, yet commanding Mizukage and had found she was quiet flirtatious with me, something I didn't mind considering her beauty. However despite how much I wanted to I had told her nothing could happen…yet, while she was disappointed she understood clearly, that didn't stop her from leaving me with something to remember.
Soon after that I ended up in Sunagakure where I followed up on Futon manipulation since I knew all masters of the elements hailed from the great village. I progressed well in the art thanks to Gaara and Temari who had felt like they owed the blonde young man for saving Gaara from the darkness.
At some point during the third year of my banishment, I finally opened the scroll Jiraiya had given me before I left, and what do I find within it? The entire Icha-Icha collector's edition…as well as something else my father left behind, Hiraishin no Jutsu, the very thing that made my father who he was, was now all mine. I also started learning from Tsunade's medical scrolls and had to admit they helped.
I soon found my partner in crime, as well as one of my lovers, instead of being in a relationship; we were what you could say 'friends with benefits', something we both were ok with considering our life at that moment.
This person was the beautiful…Kagura Enkai.
Her emerald eyes and crimson hair always seemed to sway in mischief. She wore a black battle kimono that was slightly altered. It was altered in a way that it was very revealing. Yet to underestimate her would be a great disadvantage. She was carrying in her hand a wicked looking demon scythe, Beni Akatokiyami (Crimson Moonless Dawn), The scythe had a bone-like handle in black up to 5ft. with a flat metal base for it to stand, at the top of the scythe where the blade is connected there is what looks like an emblem of a silver skull with ruby red eyes. Whereas the curved blade that is connected is black with red along the edges making it looks like blood.
The scythe to my shock was actually a Zanpakuto, the first other person have met who was part Shinigami, apparently her Zanpakuto had explained it all to her. it seemed for some reason it was always in its Shikai form, Ryūjin Jakka had told me that it was either because it was too powerful or she didn't have enough control, or maybe both, the advantage was that it never got in the way unlike mine which would make me walk around with a sword on fire 24/7. When she uses her Zanpakuto, it tends to increase her battle lust which doesn't concern Kagura at all since she loves battle. With Beni Akatokiyami, Kagura can unleash some destructive techniques that could possibly rival me, her techniques though tend to relate with the Moon. Her expertise with her Zanpakuto had earned her the name Shoujouhi Kijo (Scarlet Witch) because of her techniques and her crazy lust for battle.
I had met her close to Kirigakure where she thought I was a bounty hunter, long story short, we fought, I won, she joined me, and we eventually had hot steamy sex. All jokes a side, she is the only person to come close to killing me aside from the Raikage.
On the fourth year of by banishment I had learnt that Gaara had been kidnapped by Akatsuki but eventually rescued and brought back to life thanks to Konoha. I couldn't believe I didn't even know he had been kidnapped until it was way too late, I felt like the worst friend. What I did know was that if Konoha hadn't been able to save him then Akatsuki would be wiped off the map.
It was also during the fourth year that I was travelling past Amegakure when I was confronted by an Akatsuki member, however this one was different, and the fact that she was female was a big starter as everyone I had met or known about were male.
Her name was Konan, she was a truly beautiful woman who held up a cold expression to hide her true feelings, but against someone who had led a harsh life I could easily see it through her eyes, the pain, loss, hurt and regret.
We had fought obviously, I kept my eyes hidden so that no Akatsuki member would know about them should they know of them which would make them my trump card so to speak. I eventually beat her and spared her….
Konan and Naruto stood away from each other both bloody and battered, Naruto clothes were torn and he had cuts all over the place thanks to Konan's paper attacks which honestly were a bitch. Konan wasn't much better she was burnt, soggy and frazzled; some of her Akatsuki cloak had been burnt off almost revealing.
It was at that point that Konan dropped to her knees admitting defeat, admitting being weak to beat her opponent. Naruto seeing he won turned away and started walking confusing Konan. "Why aren't you going to kill me?" She asked confused.
Naruto looked back at her and had trouble keeping the blush down at how beautiful she seemed as the sun light broke through the clouds. "I see no reason to kill you." He said as she looked at him in disbelief.
"But…I'm your enemy!" She exclaimed showing emotion for the first time in a while.
"You know what pain really is…I can see it in your eyes." He said as if it was the simplest thing.
"What would you know of pain?" She asked with an edge to her voice.
Naruto walked over to her and knelt by her. "Because I am the Kyuubi Jinchuriki." He said shocking her, she didn't know he was a Jinchuriki just that he was trespassing in Ame and he had to be dealt with. "We Jinchuriki are the epitome of pain, agony, loneliness…we feel it all and what's worse is we're treated like nothing but scum or being made in to tools for other peoples own selfish needs…and your leader, is nothing more than one of those pathetic delusional fools." He said in a harsh tone that surprised her.
"You don't anything about him!" She said sharply trying to defend the man who had been with her always.
"Really you mean I don't know who your oh so great leader is, Nagato or is it Yahiko?" He asked nonchalant causing Konan's eyes to widen.
"How do you know who he is?" She questioned harshly.
Naruto smirked he was getting to her. "I have my ways, I heard all about you, Nagato and Yahiko, at first when I saw your blue hair I thought nothing of it, but when you used paper for you jutsu it confirmed my suspicions, you are alive, unlike what the rumours say."
Konan's brain was racing, she didn't think that this meeting would turn out like this, she finds out he's a Jinchuriki then he know about the three of them and then Nagato, now she finds out he is Jiraiya-Sensei's pupil as well. 'Maybe…just maybe he can save me.'
"What do you want to do with your life?" He asked startling her from her thoughts.
"What do you mean?" she asked confused.
"I mean do you want to live your life with a man who only sees people as tools to help with his grander plans or do you want to be free?" Naruto asked causing her to look down.
"I-I don't know anymore." She said as she broke down in front of Naruto crying for everything she had lost before, how her whole life had been a waste of time serving her childhood friend who would use her as long as it reached his goals.
Naruto seeing a broken down woman hugged her bringing his arms around her midsection while she on reflex put her arms around the man neck and cried in to his shoulder.
"You can leave with me." He suggested startling her not expecting that.
"I-I can't, he would find me and kill me, it would be too dangerous." She said, as much as she wanted to go with the man that had made her see reality.
Naruto shook his head and lowered the glasses he wore to cover his eyes revealing his own Rinnegan which made her wide-eyed. "I wouldn't let him…I promise." He said with a grin which caused a tint of pink to appear on her pale skin.
"How do you have those eyes?" She asked confused as she thought no-one else would get them.
Naruto sighed and massaged his temple. "Honestly…no idea…one minute I was near death and woke up in an empty battlefield With these eyes I will protect anyone precious to me…and if you come with me that means you to." He admitted as he wanted her to come with him to live a more peaceful life than as a tool.
Konan was stuck she could leave Akatsuki and live the life she had always wanted or she can stay and be a tool to be used and thrown away at a later date.
Konan however was too afraid. "I can't." She said solemnly which Naruto nodded his head at.
"I understand." He said as he stood up and started to walk away which incidentally caused Konan to panic realising she may lose her chance at happiness.
"WAIT!" She shouted as she ran up to him and hugged him from behind. "What if I be your spy…I could tell you everything that is going on and what's what and when the time is right I can go with you." She pleaded; she did not want to lose this chance.
Naruto pondered that thought but shook his head crushing her hopes. "It's too dangerous for that; if he suspects you of doing anything against you he would kill you." He said starting to walk forward but she kept a grip on him. "Konan, if you do this you will be putting your life on the line, you would never be safe."
"I don't care, I've been in these types of situations before, in a way I want to save him, but I know that won't be possible, you're the only one to ever be nice to me like this and see through my exterior, you're the only one to take notice of how I feel. Please give me this chance, let me prove I can do this for you, I know you can't easily trust me for this, but…If I help you take him down…I can free Ame as well, I can become the leader and make an alliance with whatever village you will be with." She never wanted something so much before, and given this opportunity she had to made it work somehow, in some strange way she felt an attraction to Naruto as he reminded her of Yahiko sort of, someone who would go out of their way to help people no matter who they were.
Naruto seemed to think it over, while she would be valuable at getting information about Akatsuki, he didn't want to put her in that position that can be so dangerous.
"Fine." He said turning around and saw she had a small smile on her face. "But you have to be careful…I will come back for you eventually one way or the other." He informed his new spy getting an affirmative nod.
With that she told him everything, how the three orphans were betrayed by Hanzo as him and Danzo struck a deal to kill the three where only Yahiko died causing Nagato to turn on his path to peace, which was in the wrong direction as he thought so. She also told him how Nagato had taken up to using 6 bodies besides him to use the Rinnegan abilities separately, basically she told him everything.
Ever since that day we had met up on occasion where we would share information about many things, it was one of these times we fell for each other, at one of the meetings we ended up in a make out session on a field crowded by trees, I don't know how it happened but I didn't complain.
We started to open up a lot more as well, she told me everything about herself along with me doing the same, we eventually became lovers, at first I wasn't so sure about it but after talking about how I needed to reform my clans as I was the last one we decided to take the next step.
It wasn't long after that I had finally learnt the Hiraishin, once I did however I met up with everyone important to me that I met up and gave them a special 3-pronged kunai in case they ever got in trouble, which brings us to the present, where I felt a pull on my mind indicating a kunai had been used.
Turning to Kagura he said. "I've got to go, Hiraishin pull, someone must be in danger…when you can feel my chakra follow it as fast as possible." He said before giving her a full blown kiss which she gladly returned.
"I'll be there." She said with a flirtatious smile.
A second later he was gone.
Hi no Kuni (The land of Fire)
Yugito Ni had never been in such trouble before, all she was supposed to do was be on a mission to an outpost within a town to drop off a package and that was that, now though she was thinking something else was going on.
And that something was Akatsuki.
In front of the blonde haired woman were the immortal, zombie brothers Kakuzu and Hidan, and she was in major trouble of actually losing, well that was until teams from Konoha had appeared.
Apparently they were after the same Akatsuki members; from she had heard the two Akatsuki had killed someone called Asuma, one of the team's senseis.
Yugito had introduced herself as the Nibi no Bakeneko Jinchuriki, which made sense to them with seeing her fighting these two.
And it was then they started fighting….even she knew that was foolish, from her information on them, the teams sent were formed out of Shikamaru Nara, Ino Yamanaka, and Chouji Akimichi with Kakashi Hatake as the leader the second team was formed out of Sakura Haruno, someone called Yamato, Kurenai Yuhi and someone called Sai.
However neither team was getting far, they had seriously underestimated their opponents as they didn't realise just how powerful this Kakuzu was. They had found out he had five hearts which was truly something they didn't expect along with the fact he could use all the elements from some masked creatures.
Their other opponent Hidan was the hardest as he was…invincible literally, however Shikamaru had taken somewhere else to do battle as he felt it had to be him. When Yamato, Kurenai, Sakura and Sai had gotten there they had sent Sai and Sakura off to help with Shikamaru as Sakura's medical Ninjutsu and Sai's aerial jutsu could be very helpful.
Up to now they had killed Kakuzu twice meaning he had thee hearts left, Kakashi had killed one using Raikiri and the other one was killed by Hidan who had been tricked by Shikamaru and ended up using Kakuzu's blood in his ritual sacrifice thinking it was Shikamaru's.
Kakuzu's remaining two masks had merged with Kakuzu's back; these masks were blue for Futon and red for Katon a bad combination.
Kakashi and his team along with Kurenai and Yamato were exhausted and they knew if some miracle didn't happen they may never make it out in one piece.
"We need a miracle." Muttered Kurenai as she surveyed the area and seen it looked like a great war had happened with all the craters and trees that had been reduced to stumps now.
"I know but we have to everything in our power to stop this guy." Kakashi replied as he too was looking around seeing if there was anything they could use.
"I can see why this guy is part of the Akatsuki." Said Yamato as he had run out of chakra to use any of his Mokuton jutsu's that may make a difference.
Ino and Chouji were practically exhausted and couldn't do anymore jutsu, Ino's were ineffective as she needed the opponent to stay still and Chouji couldn't get close enough without a jutsu shoved in his face.
Kakuzu looked at the in amusement knowing they were fucked; he was going to enjoy taking Kakashi's heart for his own and maybe Mokuton user or the Genjutsu mistress.
Yugito who had been watching by the side the entire time still exhausted realised it was now or never. "I think I got just what you need." She said gaining their attention as she pulled out an Hiraishin kunai. 'I hope he doesn't mind seeing these guys so soon.'
As soon as Kakashi saw the kunai his mind almost blew, not understanding how this woman could have that kunai, seeing as only one other person could ever use it, which hopefully meant one thing.
"Hiraishin? How do you have that?" Kurenai asked shocked.
Yugito just chuckled. "Let's just say, you'll be surprised." Once she said that she chucked the kunai as hard as she could in between herself and the Konoha nins where a crimson flash blinded them.
As soon as the flash vanished the Konoha team were in shock at seeing someone they hadn't expected in a long time.
Naruto Uzumaki-Namikaze was back.
He now looked like an 18 year old young man, he stood at an impressive height of 6 ft. 2, he had blond spiky hair with black highlights that stood up all over the place that flown down past his shoulder blades, much like Madara Uchiha's hairstyle looked like. His face was unblemished not as much as a spot of dust on his tanned face. His Rinnegan eyes were on show for all to see, they still displayed some warmth in them but not as much as they use to, on his left ear he had an earring of what looked like a phoenix that dangled slightly on a very short chain. His face was set in to a blank stare as if he was staring at nothing at all.
He wore steel toed black combat boot along with a pair of baggy black cargo pants with various extra pockets, a shuriken and kunai holster strapped to each leg due to becoming ambidextrous. He also had a utility belt with several pouches on it along with scrolls for easier use. He wore a normal black t-shirt that had an upturned colour covering his neck, on top of that he wore a black sleeveless trench coat with crimson fire licking the bottom much like his father's own trench coat, due to having no sleeves on it his t-shirt covered up his biceps only, however he did wear a pair of fingerless gloves which seemed perfect for fighting as they had metal plating fitted in.
On the back of the trench he had the kanji for Shinku Senko (Crimson Flash) in gold stitching vertically. The trench coat's collar stood up covering his neck. Around his neck was also a beautiful silver chained necklace where it held a replica of a phoenix along with another beautiful necklace he had received from Tsunade Senju. And last but not least Ryūjin Jakka strapped to his left side in his utility belt showing off its beauty while also being perfectly placed for a quick draw.
Looking to his left Naruto saw a panting Yugito. "Yugito…what's going on?" He questioned.
Yugito looked towards Kakuzu where Naruto followed her line of vision only narrow his eyes. "Akatsuki came after me, I was almost captured when those Konoha shinobi…" She paused pointing over to Kakashi and the gang where Naruto got his first look at them in over four years and gave them a nod in acknowledgement and showing no bad blood between them. "…They sent some of their shinobi after the other Akatsuki member called Hidan…but this guy takes the piss." She said before she went on to explain everything that had happened up until he appeared.
"So…gotta kill him three more times huh?" He said as if it was no trouble. "I'll give it a go."
Kakashi was still looking at Naruto in wonder, over the years information of Naruto appeared in the Bingo book which he along with every Jonin had a copy of and practically knew all about his bloodline, the Rinnegan, the same one that was meant to be a myth.
When he read it, some part of him thought it was just a lie to gain attention, but seeing it now, was a whole other situation, he could practically the power.
"Well, there's you miracle Kurenai." He said with an eye-smile.
"You think Naruto can really beat this guy? I mean all of us had trouble." Ino asked unsure, while she was sure Naruto had become strong, she didn't know just how strong he is.
Kurenai said nothing just pulled a Bingo book out of her pocket flipped some pages and gave it to Ino so her and Chouji could read it.
As she read it, she couldn't believe what is said…

Compared to the last time she had seen him, he had changed so much, and with what everything said, he seemed almost like a god. 'He's amazing, perhaps being banished did him some good after all, I doubt he would have this strong in the village.'
"Whoa!" Chouji said shocked.
"Yep, he's come a long way from the last time we've seen him." Kurenai said in a sort of proud tone.
"Don't forget hot." Ino blurted out which made her eyes wide with shock and further more when Kurenai said in almost like a trance. "Yeah…"
Kakashi hearing them shook his head. 'Lucky bastards Naruto.' He thought in amusement.
Naruto turned back to Yugito and told her. "Stay with Kakashi and the other…this may get destructive." He said with a smirk making her sigh and shake her head before doing as he said.
Naruto walked towards Kakuzu with a look that could certainly kill as his Rinnegan seemed to penetrate his very being, Kakuzu shivered it was like he could feel his death before him.
Kakuzu just smirked. "If you think you can defeat me, you truly are mistaken, just like the Konoha shinobi Hidan killed." He said with a laugh.
Naruto frowned at that since he hadn't heard someone had gotten killed. "Who?"
"Asuma Sarutobi I believe his name was." He said making Naruto sharpen his eyes while trying to control his anger.
"You bastard, now I have more than one reason to kill. I'll make sure you never leave here alive." He said voice full of anger.
Kakuzu grunted showing he didn't care about killing Asuma. "He was a worthy bounty." He said angering Naruto more.
Naruto grit his teeth together at hearing that. "Thad's all human life is to you? Bounty? You people disgust me."
"Well little Jinchuriki what do you plan on doing?"
Naruto chuckled before holding his right hand up. "I plan on showing you what it's like to feel true pain."
"Shinra Tensei!" The ground in front of him was literally ripped up breaking away as if some powerful force was blowing the area away; a second later Kakuzu was picked up off his feet as he went sailing back through a couple trees before stopping.
The group looked on in shock at the power of the jutsu; looking at the result they saw what looked like a half-pipe that was sent at where Kakuzu was stood which was now a crater.
"H-How the hell did he do that?" exclaimed/asked Ino.
"That was the sixth element." Answered Yamato vaguely.
"Sixth?" Questioned Chouji.
"Yes while you and the others know the primary 5 there is also a sixth called Gravity, no-one really knows how to control it, but it seems the Rinnegan allows that possibility." Answered Kurenai as she marvelled at the power.
Kakuzu was in pain, more pain than he thought possible, he wasn't expecting such an attack from the Jinchuriki and now he paid for it by underestimating him even though he had that Dojutsu. Standing back up with his arms still extending by his black thread which made them dangle down, reattaching them to make them the size of normal hands he went through hand seals as the red and blue masks mouths opened up.
"Katon: Gōkakyū no Jutsu!" (Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique) the red mask then shot out a huge fireball.
"Fūton: Renkūdan!" (Wind Release: Drilling Air Bullet) the blue mask shot a compressed ball of air at the fireball.
Both Jutsu's combined creating a ball of fire with intensity of that of the sun soaring at Naruto who had his eyes closed. The fireball was still raging towards him, he could feel the heat getting closer, his blood pumping and despite himself his grinned, he had been charging up chakra to use a Jutsu he hadn't properly tested yet but now was a good time as any to stop that fireball, water was out of the question as it would evaporate, wood would burn, wind he may as well kill himself, there was no other jutsu except…
Naruto snapped his eyes open and held out both of his hands and shouted. "Fūjutsu Kyūin!" As soon as the fireball made contact, instead of an explosion it hit a carrier that formed around Naruto before it started to be sucked into the barriers at the points of Naruto's hands.
A minute later and the fireball had been absorbed. "Sorry Kakuzu but jutsu don't work on me."
"Holy shit! He just absorbed the freakin' jutsu!" Ino exclaimed amazed at the jutsu.
"It appears as if that is one of the abilities of the Rinnegan, truly an amazing Dojutsu." Responded Kakashi.
"Ha! And to think everyone in the village thought that the Sharingan was the greatest, can you imagine if he ever turned on Konoha for revenge." Mused Chouji.
"We would have the worst possible enemy." Deduced Kurenai, she had always held respect for Naruto even if she didn't admit it, and right now she was a little turned on at seeing him fight with such power, after all power attracts.
"Has anyone noticed Naruto has not moved at all since the battle started?" Yamato stated, everyone looked down and sure enough no sign of him moving.
"Amazing!" Ino exclaimed as she felt horny herself seeing someone so powerful and hot fight e specially with it being Naruto, she had never admitted it before but she had always found him cute when they were younger and seeing him now brought out all those emotions.
Shikamaru had just wrapped a couple dozen explosive tags around Hidan with his shadows stopping him from moving, now Hidan was hovering over a giant hole that went down for ages.
The explosive tags were all connected to the trees around him and for once in his life he felt fear run through his system as he knew he could actually die, or be unable to be put back together again should he collapse in the hole in pieces.
"WHAT'S GOING ON? WHEN DID YOU DO THIS?" Hidan yelled as he indicated to the giant hole below him.
"I just set up this trap beforehand here. That's all." Shikamaru informed him as he was bent slightly panting.
'This guy…he wasn't just separating us two without thinking...he did it to lure me here? If that's true…he planned it up to here…!"
Shikamaru then bent down to pick up a fallen pack of cigarettes. "If you curse someone, you dig your own too…" he pulled out a cigarette and put it in his mouth. "You killed my sensei by curse…" he then lit the cigarette. "Don't think you can just merrily go you own way." Hidan glared at the lazy Nara so hard you would think he would set aflame
"That's your grave."
"Kuh…kukuku…I won't die even if my body is scattered and I only have a head, I'll climb out of here and rip out your throat."
Shikamaru took a smoke of the cigarette before taking it out. "This forest is special even within the fire country…only our clan is allowed to set foot in here…no-one else will come. Our clan will keep an eye on you forever." As he said that deer were coming out of the tree line all over the place.
Shikamaru then felt a hand grasp his shoulder lightly; looking over his shoulder he saw the spectral figure of Asuma-sensei stood there with a proud smile on his face. "You did good Shikamaru."
The spectral Asuma then pulled out his cigarettes pack before pulling out a single cigarettes and putting in his mouth. Shikamaru pulled out his lighter and lit it for one last time. 'My will of fire…I entrust it to you.' Those words echoed through Shikamaru's mind as if being told them.
"Goodbye…sensei…" he said before he flicked the lighter at the bound up figure of Hidan, the lighter then touch the first explosive tag causing a chain reaction which caused a massive blast that rocked the area surrounding him.
As the smoke cleared Shikamaru looked down the blood splattered hole to see the various parts of Hidan lying at the bottom while his head was facing him.
"HAHA…GYAHAHAHA…WELL…LOOK AT THIS YOU'VE SCREWED ME OVER PRETTY BAD!" Hidan's head yelled up at Shikamaru. "BUT JASHIN-SAMA WILL DEAL HIS RETIBUTION! FEEL THE WRAH OF DIVNE JUDGEMENT!"
"Yeah, like I'm of afraid of that." Shikamaru said as he pulled out a kunai with a wire attached to it. "You and me we believe in different things. I believe in the 'will o fire', but right now your god isn't that Jashin-sama or whatever…it's me." Pulling his kunai up to his face level he said. "Now I deal my judgement." He then threw the kunai with an explosive tag attached to the midsection of the hole where it then blew up making Hidan go wide-eyed.
"LIKE I SAID! YOU WILL FEEL THE WRATH OF THE DIVINE JASHIN-SAMAS DIVINE JUDGEMENT! JUST YOU WAIT!" Hidan yelled up like a crazed man as rubble fell on him. "GYAHAHAHA I SHALL BE THE EXECUTOR OF THAT JUDGEMENT! I CAN TAKE YOU OUT WITH JUST MY TEETH! I'LL BITE YOU DOWN IN TO TINY LITTLE PIECES!" He yelled up as the last piece of rock fell on his head.
Kakuzu had to admit, he was not going to win, this…man was surely more powerful than anyone he had ever fought, he may even be more powerful than Pein, and that was saying something.
"Hahaha, you remind me of leader-Sama." He said, he may as well help out the guy who proved to be more powerful than him and given him a good work out.
"Leader-Sama?" Naruto questioned
"Yes the leader of Akatsuki has your eyes…the Rinnegan."
Naruto's eyes widened in shock, of course he only he acted surprised as he knew already thanks to his informant within the organization. 'I'll have to remind to repay Konan-Chan…'
Naruto nodded. "I see…"
Not giving Kakuzu any chance Naruto once more performed another Jutsu. "Mokuton: Jubaku Eisō!" out of no-where a tree started to grow around Kakuzu effectively trapping him strongly even though he tried to breakthrough.
"Kage Bunshin!" He said as hecreated a clone, putting his hand out he formed a Rasengan his clone started to add wind chakra, only this time the wind started to pick up ripping the ground apart, destroying trees around him, he closed his eyes while focusing on the power of the jutsu.
"Fūton: Rasenshuriken!" Naruto declared while everyone had to shield their eyes from the sheer power coming from it. Naruto held up his hand as the jutsu whirled around him taking on the appearance of four large points, making the Rasengan appear as a giant Fūma Shuriken, with the Rasengan in the centre remaining a perfect sphere
Kakuzu looked at it like he had shit himself, which at this situation he wouldn't surprise himself if he did. 'That Jutsu I have to get out of here that will definitely kill me!'
"I-I can't believe he done it!" exclaimed Kakashi who right now seemed ecstatic, confusing the others around him.
"Done what?" asked Kurenai as the wind seemed to get stronger and stronger.
"He completed the Rasengan."
"Completed?" asked Ino as the screeching was getting higher by the minute.
Kakashi nodded. "Yes when the Yondaime created the Rasengan he initially wanted it to combine his elemental affinity with it to make the ultimate jutsu possible, however he was never able to progress that far as he had a pregnant wife to take care of and truthfully he never had the control for it., but it seems Naruto has done the impossible…again!" he exclaimed happily and the others finally got what he was saying.
"Amazing!" Chouji said proud of how far his friend had come from being the dead-last.
"Naruto-Kun can really surprise you at times." Yugito spoke with a smirk.
Naruto cocked his arm back and looked at Kakuzu who was struggling in the tree he was in. "Goodbye…Fūton: Rasenshuriken!" Swinging his arm forward he threw the Jutsu, no one could believe it, Naruto had just thrown a Jutsu that needed so much control and had so much power that no-one could even dream of using and yet he simply…chucked it like it was nothing.
The Rasenshuriken soared across the battlefield like a disc screeching until it hit its mark cutting through the tree and lifting Kakuzu up in the air from the force.
The Rasenshuriken then exploded creating a dome 80 ft. wide of wind and chakra, inside the dome though the masks that were attached started to crack all over before finally dissolving in to nothingness, and Kakuzu was being cut to shreds at a molecular level.
Naruto stood at the same spot amazed at his Jutsu as it was the first time he used it against someone, he looked as the dome started lowering down until it revealed Kakuzu still floating in mid-air being attacked by hundreds if not thousands of tiny wind blades before falling down In the 40 ft. deep crater. Naruto started walking towards the crater along with his friends who jumped by him.
"Such power!" Exclaimed Ino as she almost pissed herself seeing the destructive power.
"Amazing." Whispered Kurenai as she wished and promised that she would never get on Naruto's bad side, good thing she always admired him then. She was also happy that one of the people who had a hand in killing Asuma was now dead.
Many believed that her and Asuma were an item for a while when in reality they were close friends who always shared their secrets, ever since the academy they were like siblings. She only hoped Shikamaru was alright as he was the closest to Asuma, probably more than her on some level.
She also knew that Naruto viewed Asuma as some sort of uncle as he was the only other person other than the Sandaime who actually treated him like a real person when he was younger. Asuma had informed her of Naruto and what he was like which caused her to become intrigued and understood that his idiotic ways was a mask to hide the pain as it was easier that way, something she could relate to.
Kakashi also was awed and terrified of the jutsu Naruto had just used as it was truly a powerful jutsu which looked like it was a one hit kill. In fact all of Naruto's jutsu that had seen had been destructive and high level.
If he was honest with himself he didn't expect Naruto to become this much powerful, he was going to fix his past mistakes and hope that he could still give Naruto some jutsu such as his own Chidori and Raikiri which knowing Naruto he could improve them in ways he only wished he could.
Kakashi walked up to Naruto a little wobbly at first as he was slightly fatigued from his previous battle. He stood by Naruto and grasped his shoulder in a proud way. "Your father would be proud of you." He said making Naruto grin and scratch the back of his head which caused Ino and Kurenai to nearly shout 'KAWAII!'
Before anyone could say anything they heard someone appearing close by. "Son a bitch." Looking over they came to the sight of Kagura looking at the crater with wide eyes. Lifting her eyes from that she walked over to Naruto. "You never told me about that jutsu Naruto-Kun." She said with a pout which Kurenai thought she looked like Anko.
"It was too dangerous to show you without getting hurt." He explained casually.
Hearing Kakashi cough, Naruto looked at him before he realised that no-one knew Kagura. "Sorry, guys this is Kagura Enkai the Shoujouhi Kijo." He said making them wide-eyed that Naruto knew such a person; it wasn't a secret that she was a blood thirsty. "Kagura, this Kakashi Hatake, Kurenai Yuhi, Ino Yamanaka, Chouji Akimichi and from I understand, Yamato."
"It's nice to meet you." Kakashi said being polite.
"Right back at ya." She said before turning to Naruto. "We should get going soon."
"Where are you going?" Kurenai asked.
"Well, we were going to take Yugito back to Kumo and kick the shit out of the council for what I can presume sending her here for a trap, am I right?" He asked Yugito who grew a scowl.
"Yep, those bastards have hated me for as long as I can remember."
"Well, we'll be seeing ya." Naruto said as he started to walk away before stopping and getting something out of his pocket and going back to Kakashi. "Could you give this back to Tsunade, its important, oh and I've made sure only she or Jiraiya can open it." He told him before he gave him a scroll and getting a nod.
"Sure Naruto…do you think you'll ever return?"
Sighing Naruto turned back to look at Kagura who was talking with Yugito. "I don't know, I doubt it while Danzo and the elders are still there…and if I was, I'd make sure Kagura comes with me."
"Lovers?" Kakashi asked with a raised brow while Kurenai and Ino glared at him, until Naruto actually chuckled.
"More than you know Kakashi…more than you know." He said with a smirk before he walked away towards the centre of the crater leaving two blushing woman and a perversely giggling man while Chouji and Yamato blinked between the interaction.
Naruto walked over to the body of Kakuzu and opened up a scroll in front of him; drawing some seals on the black scroll he then placed his hand on the seal and Kakuzu and just like the body disappeared.
Walking back to Kagura and Yugito he grasped both of their shoulders before vanishing in a crimson flash leaving the Konoha nins to go home.
Shikamaru had just walked out of the forest line with a deer of his clan walking alongside him. He was currently holding the packet of cigarettes that were once Asuma's in his hand. Before he could go on any further a pink and black blur dropped down in front of him.
Sakura and Sai dropped down in front of Shikamaru in a crouch and stood up, they notice how Shikamaru looked dishevelled as if he had been in a war of his own, and they also noticed the deer next to him which they thought as strange.
"Here you are!" Sakura exclaimed happy to see Shikamaru alive.
"Reinforcements?" asked Shikamaru with a raised eyebrow. "You're a little late aren't you?"
Sakura and Sai both looked shock for a moment before Sakura asked. "What…? Shikamaru…you took out an Akatsuki on your own?
While Sai muttered. "He's more impressive than I thought…"
Shikamaru then put the pack in his pouch. "This time I really had to do it, so yeah…" he said as he glanced at the deer besides him.
Sakura smiled slightly secretly proud of her friend. "Yeah I guess…"
"What's going on over at the others?"
"We left them to go help you so…"Sakura trailed while Sai finished off. "Let's go back to them." The three of them then jumped in to the trees to meet up with the others, and unknowingly and old friend.
Both teams eventually joined up and were now stood in a part of the forest de-briefing each other about what had happened.
"So Naruto really shown up huh?" Sakura asked wishing she had seen him.
"Yep, he's strong too, but right now, we need to get back to Konoha, Naruto asked me to give Tsunade a scroll and it might be important." Kakashi said getting a nod from everyone before they shot off.
Kakashi only hoped the scroll didn't contain any dreadful news…oh he had no idea.
