Hey peoples, I'm starting my Naruto/DBZ cross. Note, this is gonna start out almost exactly like Naruto, The Fox. In fact, until Naruto actually arrives in the DBZ universe, it's gonna be nearly word for word. I asked myself if I could do it and was kind enough to give myself permission. Wasn't that nice of me?
I think I may cry. Hardly anyone took notice of my Naruto/Saw crossover "The Games have Begun". I know the first chapter was short, but I at least expected more people to read and review than they did.
Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto or DBZ.
White. All around him was an endless void of white, threatening to enter him and take him into the nothingness. Naruto clutched his head in pain, trying to figure out how it had come to this…
Rasengan/Chidori! The two incredible genin fought their hardest. They knew this was it. The last stand of two opposing powers, one fighting to protect, the other to kill. The power of the seals both boys were marked with empowering them, forcing them on.
From Naruto, the power of the Kyuubi no Kitsune coursed through him, giving off a red aura and the killing intent of a feral beast.
From Sasuke, the power of the cursed seal urged him on, whispering dark thoughts to him as he prepared to kill his best friend, someone he looked to as a brother. Through the corrupted power, his entire physical being had changed. He now had a black four-pointed star across his nose, grey skin, and sported to wings that almost seemed to look like webbed hands
As much as Sasuke hated to admit it, the two were fighting as equals, and Naruto knew it.
He remembered being swallowed by a sphere of energy and a pain in his chest, then…nothing…
Another flair of demonic chakra surged from the seal, and Naruto did everything in his power to stay conscious. Sadly, he soon found himself in the dark, sewer of his mindscape.
Feeling a sudden jerking sensation, the blonde ninja was pulled into the very center of his mindscape. To a place he had already come to know. The cage of the most powerful demon in history, the Kyuubi.
"You very nearly got the both of us killed Runt. Lucky for you, I'm not ready to die yet." Boomed a voice Naruto knew well by this point. Sure enough, two gigantic eyes appeared, along with the smirking mouth of the great beast.
"Since when do you think you have a say in when I get to die. Maybe I wanted it, you never know."
"As a matter of fact, I DO know whelp. Like every weak human, you are afraid to die, I have seen your fears, and I have heard your thought. Like it or not, I know more about you than you do. Now, the reason I called you here is that, if you haven't noticed, you are trapped in limbo, the space between worlds. Stay here to long and we both die."
"I myself have never been here personally. Though I can phase through dimensions, I pass through so fast it's as if I move from one world to the next. You got into this mess through a major power surge caused by yours and that bastard son of an Uchiha's strongest attacks. So, only an even greater power surge will get you out."
"So, I'm stuck here. DAMN IT!"
"SILENCE! As I was saying, only a greater power surge will get you out. I can help you."
"And what do you get in return? If it's freedom, than no deal."
"What I gain is someone who will take over my titles of Fox King, Lord of the Nine Hells, and Emperor of the Demon Realm. The Deal is, you become my successor. I give you the whole of my power, and all my knowledge. Using them will take training, but I can teach you what you need to know. I have knowledge of nearly every jutsu your world has created among other things. You will have the knowledge to perform them, but like I said, you will have to work to gain the skill to use them."
"There's a catch to this, I just know it."
"You catch on quick. The catch is that you lose your current contract with the Toads, and the other is not to embarrass the Fox clan. Other than that, you're pretty much free to do as you please."
"What happens to you?"
"I will become a mere thought, a voice and teacher in your head. I wouldn't ask any more questions boy. Time may go drastically faster here, but your time in limbo is almost up. It's now or never. Live or die… make your choice."
"Fine… I'll do it."
Suddenly, a claw shot out from between the cage bars and, grabbing Naruto, hoisted him into the air. Naruto watched as the Fox's tails shot between the cage bars as well, slamming into him and causing immense pain as they were seemingly being absorbed while a tail grew from his tailbone with every one that he absorbed.
"The first five tails are each gifted with an element. Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, and Lightning. The Sixth tail is the tail of Insight and Foresight. And the last three tails are the tails of Mind, Body, and Soul. When all combine, you become a force that can only be stopped when your own will fails. You become a force of nature."
As he spoke, the final three tails were absorbed and Naruto became a dark silhouette illuminated by a strange white light from within. It expanded as red, demonic chakra merged with him and Naruto screamed as the power overtook him and in a flash of light and pain, he was shot from his mindscape into the waiting new world.
The Fox fell to the floor, exhausted, but happy at what it had done.
"Give 'em Hell, runt… give 'em Hell."
With that, the once great and powerful Kyuubi fell into an easy sleep.
Piccolo suddenly snapped open his eyes as a huge surge of power washed over him, snapping him out of his meditation. The earth beneath him began shaking as if the entire planet was being ripped apart by the energy. Suddenly he was blown back by a gust of wind as a red beam of energy a few miles away shot into the sky. Deciding to investigate, he quickly flew off and reached the area just as the tower of light began to dissipate. At its base was a sphere of red light. Suddenly, before his eyes, the sphere grew so bright he couldn't look at it.
While he was looking away, the light shifted into a humanoid form and became solid, the light losing its intensity. When the Namekian looked back, he saw a young man with long, golden blond hair that was tied back. His face was marked with six marks on each cheek. His body was muscular, though extremely lean. He wore a red t-shirt and a black vest over it. The vest was covered in pockets full of who knows what. He also wore a pair of black sandals and black pants that looked like they wouldn't restrict movement in the event of a fight. But what got his attention the most was his lack of human ears, replaced with what looked like elongated fox ears, and nine flowing tails coming from his tailbone covered in blood red fur.
The guy opened his eyes and Piccolo saw his crimson red eyes, animalistic slits for pupils.
"All right, just who or what are you?" asked Piccolo, demanding an answer more than asking for one.
Naruto just looked at this odd being who asked him who or what he was. That one made him crack a smile, much to the green…thing's frustration.
"Me? I think I should be asking you that question. I'm Naruto, and if you haven't guessed, I'm new here, so if you could just point me in the direction of the nearest town, I'll be out of your hair, or lack thereof I guess" said Naruto. That did it. Grabbing him by the collar of his shirt, Piccolo hoisted Naruto up to eye level. A very bad move, as once eye contact was made, Kyuubi inside Naruto used one of the boy's new abilities and peered inside the mind of the green one, now named Piccolo.
"Whoa, whoa, calm down Piccolo. Geez, it's no wonder people don't think you even have a sense of humor" Naruto said, once again smiling stupidly. Piccolo seemed shocked for a moment at the blond before growing more irritated at the blond. If it weren't for the two familiar energy signatures coming in fast he would have taught the kid a lesson.
Sure enough, landing just off to the side, Goku and his son Gohan made their entrance, the latter merely giving him an odd look, the former just wearing a stupid grin on his face that matched the blond he had hoisted in the air.
"Um, as fun as it is being held up by my shirt, you can let me down now." Piccolo's attention was once again brought back to the blond in his hand. He growled lightly before relinquishing his grip on the young man, who dropped to the ground and stretched, as if he had been asleep for a very long time and was unsure of his own body for some reason.
"So who's the blond guy?" asked Goku. "Is he the source of the energy wave we felt?" The dark haired man suddenly became somewhat serious.
"More than likely, but the kid seems like a goof. I wouldn't believe he was remotely strong, but I think he managed to penetrate my mind as though it were paper" replied the Namek, who had felt the presence in his mind before the blond somehow magically knew his name. Who knew what else the young man, Naruto, may have taken from his mind.
"My name is Naruto Uzumaki, former shinobi of the hidden leaf, new Kyuubi no Kitsune, Lord of foxes and the Kitsune clans, Lord of the Nine Hells, and Emperor of the Demon Realm" said Naruto, causing the fighters that were already there to adopt their fighting stances.
"Whoa, just hold on there, I'm not looking for a fight, I just got out of one" said Naruto, holding up his hands defensively. "If you don't mind, I'm just looking for something to eat." Goku and Piccolo just glanced at each other, but couldn't sense any lies.
"Well, then you can follow us, if you know how to fly" said Piccolo.
"Of course I know how to fly" replied Naruto smirking. "You don't think your name was the only information I picked from your mind, do you?" Piccolo just growled darkly at the blond before taking off, the other three soon following.
They soon arrived at Goku's home. They were about to enter, but were stopped when they opened the door and Goku was bashed in the head by a frying pan. Naruto saw this and nearly cracked up laughing. Instead, not knowing how long things were going to take with Goku's wife, he let his mind slip into his mindscape to train. The nice thing about his mindscape was explained to him by Kyuubi on the flight while Naruto asked him about the mind-entering ability.
Apparently one minute in the real world was a full week in the mindscape. Add in the fact that inside the mindscape he had no physical form, meaning he didn't need to eat or sleep. The Kyuubi also mentioned that holding it up for too long would cause severe mental backlash, but Naruto was too excited about the aspect of training that he really didn't listen, much to Kyuubi's annoyance.
So after a full month and a half of training, Naruto found himself with Goku waving his hand in front of his face. Goku after taking a verbal lashing from Chi-Chi, Goku had taken notice that the new blond kid had totally spaced out. Now the other three were curious as well.
"Kindly stop doing that" said Naruto, a slight irritation in his voice.
"Sorry, but you kinda spaced out on us" said Goku, rubbing the back of his head sheepishly, though that may have been left over pain from Chi-Chi's frying pan.
Now it was Naruto's turn to rub the back of his head sheepishly.
"Yeah, sorry about that. I figured you were having a "family moment" so I took the time to train. This got raised eyebrows from all present.
"You were…training?" asked Piccolo, clearly confused.
"Maybe we should all sit down and have a chat" said Naruto, before turning to Chi-Chi with a large smile on his face. "If that's alright with you, Miss Chi-Chi."
"Um, yeah, sure, come inside. I haven't really had time to tidy up or anything" she replied.
"I can help with that" replied the blond, forming his fingers into a cross seal. Suddenly, five exact copies of him phased into existence, much to the shock of those around. It was similar to the split-form technique, but different at the same time.
"Just tell them what to do and they'll do it. Consider it a payment for a bite to eat?" said Naruto, as Chi-Chi suddenly developed stars in her eyes and the five clones got a horrible feeling in each of their stomachs. They were suddenly whisked off to help the woman do chores around the house, as the four warriors outside just stared, mouths agape.
"A bite to eat? Man, you are gonna get an all you can eat buffet if you just give her more of them to help around the house" said Gohan, Piccolo and Goku just dumbly nodding in agreement as the four walked into the house.
Sorry for the short chapter, but I hope to have at least 6000 to 8000 words as the new average length of all my chapters. I say this cause school starts next week, so while I'll have less time to type, It won't be as rushed The pool is officially closed, so you now have TEN stories. Harry Potter cross will be next.
I'm still sad. Nobody noticed my Saw crossover (Cries tearfully in background). Please at least read and review it. I just want to know what you think.
Anyway, review this too. And something good, not just the UPDATE SOON crap I keep getting.
Peace to all my fans
