Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto or Dragon Ball Z.
The Valley of the End…a battle field named after the battle between Madara Uchiha and the First Hokage of Konoha. Now it is the battle field between two Genin level ninja Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki. They were fighting for hours neither one giving up. The winner of this fight would decide the fate of Sasuke who wants to go to Orochimaru of the Sannin to obtain power to kill his brother Itachi; who had killed the entire Uchiha Clan. Naruto and Sasuke panted heavily trying to catch their breath.
"Naruto, why do you continue to stand in my way? Orochimaru is my only ticket to power! I have to get stranger to kill Itachi!"
"I won't let you go, Sasuke! Orochimaru only wants to take over your body so he can obtain the Sharingan!" Naruto shouted.
"I don't care, as long as I get the strength I need I'll do anything!" Sasuke's Cure Mark began to grow and cover his body. His hair grew longer and darker and hand-like wings formed on his back.
"This looks bad. Hey Kyuubi, lend me some of your chakra!" Naruto thought trying to communicate with the Fox Demon sealed in him.
"You'll need more than just "some" kit; you'll need at least one tail of my power."
Naruto suddenly felt power surging though him. The Fox's red chakra covered his body until it resembled a fox itself with one tail. Naruto's hair became wilder, he grew fangs, and his nails grew and sharpened. His eyes were red with slits.
"Okay Naruto, let's make a deal,"
Naruto raised his eyebrow. "What kind of deal?"
"We will use one last attack and put everything into them. If you can overpower me, I'll go back to Konoha and never leave again. I'll even give up on killing my brother for now." Sasuke said.
Naruto just nodded.
Without hand signs, Sasuke formed a chidori in his left hand, and Naruto formed a rasengon in his right. They then leaped into the air toward each other.
The two attacks collided with each other and sent a pulse throughout the area. At the moment it appeared that they were evenly matched until Sasuke started getting the upper hand. Naruto was losing focus fast. Was this it? Was he going to lose his best friend to that snake Orochimaru? He then saw a little image of them as kids holding out their hands to hold. Naruto suddenly got a huge burst of energy and became enveloped by a golden light. You could literally see the new golden energy flaring from his body.
Naruto pushed with all his might with his newfound strength, canceling Sasuke's chidori and sent him soaring into the rocky wall near the waterfall. Naruto calmed down and the energy dispersed.
"Kyuubi, what was that just now?" Naruto asked examining himself.
"I don't know kit, but I've never felt power like that since your Fourth Hokage fought me twelve years ago," Kyuubi said.
"The Fourth Hokage had this power too?"
"N-Naruto…" Sasuke grunted.
"Sasuke!" Naruto quickly ran up to his friend. "Are you alright?"
"Well, despite the fact I was sent hurtling into a wall made of rocks, I'm doing just fine," Sasuke grunted sarcastically.
At that moment Kakashi Hatake, Naruto and Sasuke's sensei, arrived at the scene with Pakkun by his side. Kakashi had a surprised look on his face when he saw Sasuke.
"What happened here?" Kakashi asked.
"Kakashi-sensei, I did it; I won. Sasuke can return to the village now," Naruto said with a smile on his face.
Kakashi's face softened and he smiled underneath his mask. "You did a remarkable job Naruto. I'm proud of you."
Sasuke cleared his throat to get their attention.
"In case you forgot, I'm injured and require a hospital," Sasuke said.
"Right, come on let's get you two back to the village," Kakashi said while he leaned over and picked up Sasuke up and out him on his back. "Naruto, can you walk?"
"I may need a little support," Naruto said as he grabbed a hold of Kakashi's Jounin vest. Then they made their way back to Konoha.
At the Village Gates Sakura was watching for any sign of Naruto or Kakashi who said that he would bring them both back. Shikamaru, Neji, Kiba, Choji, Lee, and the sand siblings returned to the village and Naruto, Sasuke, and Kakashi haven't returned yet. She was becoming worried they were gone far longer than the rest of the retrieval team. Then, she saw something in the distance. The object came closer until she could make out what it was. Her eyes widened as she saw it was Kakashi with Naruto limping beside him and Sasuke on his back.
"He did it, he brought Sasuke back to Konoha…to me," Sakura thought. She ran up to them tackle hugged Naruto. Even though he was weak from the fight, he was sturdy enough to stay standing. Naruto was surprised that Sakura was hugging him at all.
"You brought Sasuke back. I'm so happy Naruto. Thank you, thank you so much," Sakura said, tears of joy ran down her face. She released Naruto and turned to Kakashi.
"Is he going to be okay?" she asked.
"Don't worry; he'll be back to his old self in no time. He just needs sleep and we need to get both him and Naruto to the hospital," Kakashi said.
Two hours after Kakashi returned both Naruto and Sasuke, the Council members, Koharu Utatane and Homura Mitokado gathered in Tsunade's office. Since they knew how Naruto stopped Sasuke from leaving and joining Orochimaru, they came to a conclusion on how to deal with it…and Tsunade was not pleased.
"What! You're going to punish Naruto for stopping the Uchiha from joining Orochimaru!" she yelled.
"Tsunade, we are not punishing him," Homura said. "We felt the power coming from Naruto from all the way here. Not only did we feel the Kyuubi's chakra, but we felt a power from Naruto that could rival its own."
"In fact come to think of it, I recognized that power from the Fourth Hokage," Koharu said. "How is it that Naruto has that power as well?"
"In any case, if he let that much power leak from the seal, he might lose control, and then the Fox demon will run amuck again and finish what it started years ago," Homura said.
"We're doing this for the protection of Konoha, and the boy. There's no telling what might happen to Naruto if the villagers knew what happened," Koharu said.
Tsunade still didn't look any happier. Those two had better find a better reason to convince her before she hangs them on her mantel.
Koharu sighed. "Look Tsunade, we're not doing this because we're against the boy. We've actually grown to respect him, as has the Clan Head members. We just can't risk the safety of the village."
Tsunade sighed staring at her desk. "You said banishment was the safest way?"
"Of course, even we don't want to see the boy executed," Koharu said.
In the hospital, Sasuke was staring out the window by his bed watching the rain. He was in deep thought about how much of his life he wasted for revenge for a clan that was long gone. He wished if he could turn back time, he would and find out why Itachi massacred their whole family. He'll admit that their father wasn't the nicest of people, but Itachi could have at least let their mother live so he could have some family left.
His thoughts were interrupted by a knocking on his door.
"Come in," he said.
The door opened to reveal Sakura with a small bouquet of flowers. "Hey, Sasuke."
"Sakura…what are you doing here? I thought you would be visiting Naruto,"
"I'll see him on my way out," she said pulling up a chair next to his bed after placing the flowers in a vase on a table. "How are you feeling?"
"I'm still sore, but other than that I'm fine."
"I'm glad you're back, Sasuke. You don't know how happy I am,"
"Why would you happy I'm back after all I've put you through? Every time you tried to talk to me, I would push you away. I rejected you every time you tried asking me on a date. I couldn't even protect you when I was fighting Gaara."
"I don't deserve your presence Sakura. I don't deserve your smile, your love, not even-"
Sasuke turned his head toward her and was silenced by her lips pressed against his. He was shocked, but a few seconds after, his face softened and he returned the kiss while wrapping his arms around her waist. Sakura snaked her arms around his neck.
Unknown to them, Ino Yamanaka was outside the room watching the scene before her.
"Way to go, forehead," she said with a smile.
Shikamaru, since he wasn't really injured, was with Naruto going over the retrieval mission.
"Why aren't you stuck in the hospital like the rest of us?" Naruto asked.
"I only got a broken finger during the mission, so I don't have to be in this troublesome hospital."
"Man, everyone was nearly killed on this mission but you come out with only a broken finger. That's just wrong."
Suddenly, there was a knock on Naruto's door and Tsunade entered.
"Hey Grandma Tsunade, what are you doing here?" Naruto asked, but then he saw a sad look on her face. "Why do you look sad?"
"Naruto, the council knows how you defeated Sasuke…and for the sake of the village's safety, they have come to the conclusion that you are to be banished from the village," Tsunade said with her head down.
Naruto's eyes widened. The council was banishing him for using the Kyuubi's power and an unknown power he just found out about? Even Shikamaru was shocked at this information.
"What, why are they doing this! I brought back Sasuke! Sure I used Kyuubi's chakra, but that was the only way I was going to win since he had his Curse Mark activated!" Naruto yelled.
"Naruto, they don't like it any more than you. You've actually gained their respect," Tsunade said. "Also, I found this letter that is addressed to you when I was looking for my secret stash of Sake. It's from the Fourth Hokage."
"T-the Fourth left a letter for me?" Naruto asked stunned.
"Shikamaru, I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave," Tsunade said.
"O-okay," Shikamaru got up and left the room.
Once Shikamaru was out the door, Tsunade handed Naruto the letter. He opened it and read:
If you're reading this then that means that it's time you knew who your parents are. I wish I was still with you to this day; your mother and I both with we were there with you. Yes Naruto, you are Kushina Uzumaki and I, Minato Namikaze. The day the Kyuubi attacked, I couldn't ask any other parent to use their child. So I used you to be the Kyuubi's jailor. I wanted you to the one to keep this village safe from the Kyuubi; I wanted the village to see you as a hero.
Naruto was speechless. His own father was the Fourth Hokage. He was also the reason the villagers hated his guts. He didn't know whether to happy he finally knew who his parents are, or to be angry for his father to do that to him. He then continued to read more of the letter.
Also Naruto, there is one last piece of information you need to know. Out in the universe, in another galaxy, there is a planet called Vegeta which was your mother and I's original home. Planet Vegeta is the home of one of the strongest warrior species in the universe; the Saiyans. As a baby I was sent out to originally destroy this planet, but the parents that raised me here changed that. They took care of me until I went into the ninja academy to become a ninja because I wanted to protect them. Also, one more crucial information; Saiyans are born with tails. It's the main source to our power, and it gives us the ability to transform into a Great Ape during a full moon.
Naruto was quiet for a second…yeah, for a second. "I was wondering what the hell this thing was for!"
Naruto then pulled out a tail out from his pants which shocked the hell out of Tsunade who jumped back.
"Holy crap! N-Naruto, you have a tail!" She then walked up to him a grabbed his tail. He yelped and felt his power draining.
"Please Grandma, stop! Let go of my tail! I suddenly feel so weak," he said as he slumped a little. She quickly released his tail and apologized. Naruto then read another sentence that was actually in bold print.
Unfortunately it's also our major weak spot.
Naruto's eye twitched. "Now he tells me." After he regained his strength he continued reading.
Four years after I graduated from the academy and was now chuunin, I met your mother.She was beautiful. She was attacked by Iwa ninja. I was about to help her when she revealed her tail and demolished them. Since she had a tail so I knew she was just like me. When I asked her about herself she said she was Planet Vegeta and was sent here to finish the job that the "useless little runt" from 17 years ago failed to accomplish. When she saw my tail, she figured that I was that runt and kept asking me why I didn't accomplish my mission. I told her that I had people here I wanted to protect. At first she didn't understand why I wanted to protect these people until later when she saw people actually appreciating my presence. A few years passed and we came to fall in love. Well, I have to go now, Naruto. Under the Namikaze Compound, there lies the ship I arrived to this world. In a Spiral Galaxy in the northern quadrant of the universe there is a planet called Earth like ours. Use the ship to go and find another Saiyan that was said to be sent to that planet. His name is Kakarot, and if that planet isn't already destroyed, ask him to train you in the ways of the Saiyan. I everything in your hands. And remember, Naruto, no matter what happens your mother and I are proud of you and we'll always love you. We hope for you to grow up strong.
Tears started to well up in Naruto's eyes. Tsunade walked over and pulled Naruto into a hug.
"The council is giving you two weeks to get everything you need ready. Use this time to spend as much time with your friends as much as you can," she said with a soothing voice.
In those two weeks, Naruto told the rookie 12 about the council's banishment of him. This piece of information didn't go well with everyone. Even though Shikamaru heard this already, it still pissed him off, as troublesome as it was. Sasuke blamed himself for the council's decision, but Naruto didn't blame him. Naruto spent the two weeks with the rookie 12.
With Team 8; Naruto spared with Kiba, Shino helped Naruto with controlling himself by meditating, and Naruto hung out with Hinata. Even though it was too late, Hinata finally admitted she feelings for Naruto. Naruto, however, didn't have feelings for Hinata like she did him because he did love her but like she was his sister. She was happy that she did have his love even if it was of brotherly love.
With Team 9; Naruto spared with Neji and Lee to improve his taijutsu and Tenten helped Naruto with using weapons with better accuracy.
With Team 10; Naruto and Shikamaru watched the clouds and remembered times when they were kids and they would sneak out of class along with Choji and Kiba to play and hang out until Iruka want to look for them. Ino took Naruto shopping for some new clothes much to Naruto's disliking. What did people have against the color orange anyway? Naruto and Choji had a ramen eating contest which ended in a draw and they had to spend the rest of the day in the hospital do to ulcers.
With his team; they really just remembered their time as a team and all the adventures and missions they had.
Naruto even spent time with Iruka and one last bowl of raman together.
Jiraiya heard of what the council said and wasn't pleased either. Naruto, Tsunade, and Jiraiya found the Namikaze Compound and also found a secret entrance that lead to Minato's space pod.
The last day of the two weeks arrived. Naruto was at the Village Gates with the space pod ready for launch. He had a dozen storage scrolls with the new clothes Ino "forced" him to buy and food to last him for years, and of course he had to have his ramen especially Ichiraku's in one of those scrolls. Naruto knew he couldn't survive only on ramen alone.
All the teams and their senseis were there to see him off, as well as the sand siblings. Tsunade, Jiraiya, Shizune, and Iruka were there too. All the guys either gave Naruto a handshake or a pat on the shoulder, and the girls gave him a hug. Hinata gave him a hug, but also a kiss on the cheek.
Lee then shouted out, "NARUTO, MAKE SURE YOUR FLAMES OF YOUTH DO NOT DIMINISH!"
"You got it, bushy brow," Naruto said giving him a thumbs up.
Naruto then turned to Kiba. "Hey, if I hear that you made Hinata cry or hurt her in any way, I'll find some way to kick your ass. I'll be keeping in touch, so I'll know if something happens."
Kiba smirked. "Idiot, what makes you think Hinata and I will ever get together at all?"
"I don't, but you never know what the future holds," Naruto said with a shrug. Hinata then blushed and Kiba just scratched the back of his head.
Naruto then turned to Sasuke. "Hey, live both of our dreams Sasuke. Become Hokage while training to kill Itachi. Don't take the easy route; you need to work to reach your goals."
Sasuke smiled and walked up to Naruto and shook his hand again and then they pulled each other into a man hug.
"You can count on me bro," Sasuke said.
After that, he got a hug from a crying Shizune and Tsunade, Jiraiya just ruffled the kid's hair and wished him luck, and Iruka embraced the boy in a hug before he entered the space pod. He put on a scouter that belonged to his mother who had constructed this one herself. It could track any power signature no matter how far the distance of the target. He already read the directions on how to work the thing and put in the target's name. After getting a precise location marked, he typed in the location into the pod's database. Naruto waved good-bye for one last time before the pod door closed and the rocket boosters started up. The now rookie 11 waved good-bye as the space pod took off in a sudden burst of speed and in mere seconds the pod left the Earth's atmosphere.
Naruto watched as the Earth only got smaller from his viewpoint and sighed.
"I sure am going to miss them."
"I know kit, but you can still be in contact with them. So it won't be like you know how they are."
"Yeah, I know."
"Kit, I'm going to help you train. That power of yours seems that it can diminish fully, so I will help you with that."
"You mean this isn't how I normally look?"
"It appears that way. Also, I'm going to help you to try and control that transformation the Fourth mentioned. He said you can transform into a Great Ape or something. I'm sure you don't want to go on a rampage during a full moon, do you?"
"Of course I don't! That planet will probably be my new home, and I don't want to destroy it if that happens."
"Then let the training commence."
And so began Naruto's journey to find this mysterious Kakarot in another world. Will Naruto manage to find him, and how will the result of Naruto's training with Kyuubi unfold?
