Naruto x Unleashed
A few days had passed and things were uneventful. It was quiet, serene at the camp site. Ben fought back a chuckle as Gwen looked paled at what Grandpa Max was making. He felt sorry for the girl who did not share his taste. What looked like a shooting star soared over head and landed somewhere in the forest.
''I want to check something out. I'll be right back,'' Ben announced as he threw on a jacket and went in the direction of the shooting star as Gwen called out to him.
''Ben wait! It could be dangerous.''
''I'll be fine,'' He shouted back not waiting for any other declarations to stop him. He traveled through the forest following the smoke and the smell of some sort of metal. He came to a crater and walked down as he noticed a glowing green light. The first thing that came to mine was radiation but the atmosphere would be toxic in some manner. He got closer to the wreckage and saw it was some sort of pod. The pod opened and a watch like device appeared. ''No way...could this be?'' Ben had heard rumors of some kind of watch like device on his way hear. A weapon that allowed the user to assume the form of numerous alien like forms. So why on earth did it crash here?
Suddenly the thing latched onto his hard. No matter the amount of force Ben used it wouldn't budge. ''Shit!'' After another minute of trying he relented and climbed out of the crater where Gwen was waiting for him.
''Ben why did you...what is with that watch? You didn't have it before.''
''The wreckage contained some sort of pod. The blasted thing latched on me. No matter how hard I try I can't get it off.''
''Have you tried activating it?''
''Let's see...hopefully I don't blow off my own ass or something,'' Ben murmured as he tried activating the dial. He turned it and then the face popped up. The silhouette of something humanoid appeared and he pressed down on it. Gwen shielded her eyes and stepped back as a bright green light enveloped the area. The light died down to reveal a humanoid being, much taller then Ben and made out of fire. He was a mixture of orangish-yellow with patches of red all over his skin saved for his face that was like a candle flame.
''BEN! You're on fire!'' Gwen shouted in disbelief.
Ben smirked or what could be considered a smirk and said, ''...finding me 'hot' all of a sudden cousin?'' He teased as Gwen frowned and told him, ''Get over yourself hothead.'' She paused for a moment and asked, ''Aren't you...'' She paused trying to find the right word.
''Hot? No, I feel...different, but not in the way you were expecting.''
''Let's go find Grandpa. Maybe he'll know something,'' she suggested, even though in her mind this wasn't an occurrence that normal or most people could even conceive.
Ben nodded at Gwen's suggestion, despite the irony of it.
It took all but three minutes to explain what happened when they got to the camp site. ''...and this is the result?'' Max finishes as the two teens nodded. Max sighed as he tried to figure something else. After five more minutes passed Ben decided to try something else. In another flash of light he transformed in some sort of beast. Vaguely canine-looking with features between a lion and gorilla hybrid. Not to mention gills on his neck which seemed to give him radar like sight due to the fact this form didn't have eyes.
The Vulpimancer turned to the voice as it's tail moved about slightly.
''You shouldn't screw around with the watch. What if you turn into something dangerous.''
The Vulpimancer started to sniff Gwen.
''Hey you...what are you...''
''An unusual one. Your mind is far beyond that of a normal human. You wish to bridge the gaps don't you? I shall partially awaken the Master Control. Use the Power of the Ten representatives well. It is up to you to master the full power of the Omnitrix.''
The Vulpimancer disappeared as in it's place stood Ben. ''Whoa...that was a rush.''
''Ben...you're you...what happened.''
''I don't know. I think the Omnitrix spoke to me.''
''Omnitrix?'' Max questioned as he walked up. It was already decided that they pack things up and get ready for a trip early tomorrow morning.
''Yeah. My mind was filled with this rush of information. A device like this can not fall into the wrong hands. From what the voice told me I can use at least ten of these alien forms.''
''Aliens? A transforming watch? This whole thing is crazy. Why are you two so calm about this?''
Ben and Max shared a look.
''Should we tell her gramps? I mean she is old enough. It'll be a lot easier if we didn't have to hide things.''
''Tell me what? What's going on?''
Max took a deep breath and gestured Gwen to sit down in one of the lawn chairs they brought for the trip. ''To begin, when I said I used to be a plumber, I didn't mean your garden variety Mr. fix-it of sinks and plumbing. I was a member of an organization of the same name. A law enforcement officer that deals with extraterrestrial activity. Originally the Plumbers were a debunk government agency, but in recent years because of all the alien activity and advancement, which included extraterrestrial recruitment the agencies of similar names and goals combined and formed an intergalactic police force that deals with the affairs of all life.''
Gwen was massaging her knees, trying to take in all that she heard. It was simply; it was insane but yet...seeing her cousin stuck with some kind of device that turned him into 2 of possibly 10...creatures...no more then moments ago made it hard to argue against.
It was then Ben spoke up. ''I happen to know because I came across alien life a few years ago.''
''So Area 51 and all those space saucer sightings?'' The red-head voiced.
''Not quite all of them were real, but more some then others. A girl smart like you should know plenty about politics. How things are often covered up by the government. Especially incidents that would make them look bad.''
While this was going on up in a space a ship that was fresh out of battle was undergoing repairs. In a rejuvenation tank was a bluish-green squid like alien who was worse for wear. Three of his limbs were practically gone, with only a small portion of his right arm intact. While he was being healed by tiny machines a subordinate was informing him of something.
''Sir, during our battle with the Uxorite Xylene when our bridge was damaged many of our systems along with our systems were damaged. It will take weeks before our ship will be fixed my excellency. Though our trackers have indicated a transmission from the Omnitrix. It has been active for about three hours my excellency.''
''Send the drones to those coordinates and retrieve it now!''
'Huh?'' He was awaken from his stupor by Gwen's voice.
''There's something I've been meaning to ask you. About what happened at the restaurant. Ben...I...''
Ben's body jerked as he gaze went to the trees.
''Ben what's Wraaaaah!'' Ben tackled Gwen to the ground as a laser beam shot right over them.
''Gwen stay down...'' Ben told her as he got up and activated the Omnitrix. A large orange machine with four metallic legs ripped the trees out of it's path. From it's head emerged some kind of scanner as it locked onto Ben.
''Target Located! Destroy Life Form and Acquire Object!'' It's cold metallic voice stated.
''Time to turn up the heat then ugly!"' Ben slammed his hand down onto the watch.
Instead of turning into a humanoid form of fire Ben found himself turned into some sort of creature made out of a green diamond like substance.
''Well shi...'' Before he could finish his swear he was blasted by the red beam by the metallic creature sending him crashing towards several trees.
''Ben!''Gwen shouted out to him, first thought on her mind going to her fallen cousin when she was held back by Max. ''GRANDPA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING! BEN HE'LL BE...''
''GWEN! Calm down! He'll be fine! We need to worry about getting any nearby citizens out of here or they'll be caught in the fight.''
Ben stood up and shook off the attack.''Hardly fazed. Sucks for you I'm afraid!'' He said as he held up his hand. 'I hope like hell this alien has a projectile attack!'' He thought as the machine drew closer. Moving at him with it's spider like legs. From who of the hatches Saws were produce and revved up.
The diamond creature's hand shift into spiky crystals and were fired at the machine. The crystals made scratches but the dents were hardly enough to slow down the machine as it steadily advanced. ''Fine! Close range it is!'' Focusing again the crystals shifted into one large blade. Ben charged forward and thrust his arm forward as the Saws connected with it. Sparks started to fly about as the saws began to ground at the tough diamond like subject until it's edges started to dent and fly apart. Picking up one of the saw blades Naruto stabbed into the creature's arm.
He was able to pierce the hull. He was knocked back by one of the creature's leg and landed on the ground on his side with a thud. ''Damnit! This is going to be tougher then I thought.'' Getting up again he charged again, paying extra care to knock be caught off guard by the creature's legs. He attacked the whole again, making the piercing in the machine even larger. Taking careful aim he shot several crystals into the machine hoping to damage it's circuits. As luck would have it the foreign material in the machine caused it's systems to work triple time trying to run despite the cloggage. The machine began to overheat and exploded.
''Well at least that takes care of...'' He didn't even get to finish as he was blasted by a laser and driven into the dirt. He turned around and came face to face with another one of those machines. ''Damnit! You bastards are pest!''
''I shall partially awaken the Master Control. Use the Power of the Ten representatives well. It is up to you to master the full power of the Omnitrix.''
Remembering the voice from before he decided it couldn't hurt to see what else he could become. He changed this time into some sort of wraith like creature. This transformation felt different, as if more malignant or dark. Maybe it was just after effect of so many changes. Phasing into the machine he ripped it apart inside out as he phased some of it's opponents clears right out of it. The machine fell to the ground in a wreckage with ease. It was then the Omnitrix started beeping. He made a mad dash or glide to the forest so no civilian would catch sight of the detransformation. Out of the green light came an exhausted Ben.
''Lord Vilgax after 30 minutes the Omnitrix has timed out. Both of the drones have been terminated. Should I send a collector to salvage the box so we can extract information from the combat?''
''Do so immediately. Whoever this being is was able to partially unlock the Omnitrix's Master Control. I want you to use that new Serum we acquired.''
''Lord Vilgax that serum is untested it could...''
''Do not question my command drone. It is imperative my recovery is sped up before that being learns how to harness the Omnitrix and become an actual threat.''
The drone merely complied, not wanting to anger his master any further.
The partial Master Control mentioned is the ability to switch between alien forms access at will for a set amount of time. For the time being the limit is thirty minutes at the most if stretched and the minimum being the fail safe ten. In this case it will take time for the Omnitrix to bond on a genetic level with Naruto. Some alien forms will not retain the damage that Naruto retains after the battle like Diamondhead while others will (like in Alien Force.). Also this will be more mature and darker in terms so certain characters will have changes.
If it seems like Naruto will be harnessing the Omnitrix's power to quickly then it will be on the basis that he will be training with the alien forms on a daily basis. Learning their strengths and weaknesses along with thinking up situations to use them in hypothetical situation instead of abusing it like some sort of toy. Since this is Unleashed! Naruto, a harden shinobi and warrior this shouldn't be a surprised for those who are familiar with my story.
I also decided to have it be revealed to Gwen about Max's past so she could undergo 'training' to 'discover' and 'harness' her hidden power. A lot of people didn't like the basis of Gwen's power being alien origin instead of actual magic and spells so don't worry, while the Anodite origin will be the basis for the energy the spells and magic/Anodite power will be treated as two separate abilities.
