Disclaimer : I do not own Naruto
Summary : A man declared his message to the world. "I am the one who will establish peace and order." The man have faced pain and survived. The man have died and resurrected. He was both Uzumaki Naruto and Rikudō Sennin.
Decided to try to make this into a story. For those who read the original oneshot version, there are a lot of things changed
He Who Will Establish Peace and Order: Samsara
Namikaze Minato, the Yondaime Hokage stood glaring at the man before him. The man tried to release the Kyūbi from his wife. he managed to prevent that, however it was done with a cost. He lost one of his hand. In a battle against normal ninja, this was not a problem. However the man before him was anything but normal.
The man managed to find the secret place where his wife, Kushina gave birth. The man almost managed to kidnap his son, Naruto under his nose. This was beyond other ninjas ability. Not to sound arrogant but Minato was certain that lesser ninjas would have died before they came close to his son.
He tensed. The man charged towards him.
His only thought was hoping that Kushina managed to call reinforcements on time.
Uzumaki Kushina ran through the forest of Konoha with a baby in her hands. Her eyes moving frantically seeking any Konoha shinobi for assistance.
After some time running, she was about to lose hope when a voice called.
"Kushina? What are you doing here?" Tsunade asked.
Kushina sighed in relief. Senju Tsunade was one of the strongest kunoichi of Konoha. In addition as a member of sannin, when one was sighted, the others must be near.
Kushina's prayer was answered when Jiraiya and Orochimaru appeared beside her.
"Tsunade-sama! Please help! Minato is attacked!" Kushina pleaded to Tsunade.
Orochimaru tensed. Jiraiya's eyes widened, "Where is he?" he asked Kushina.
Kushina informed him.
"Jiraiya, Orochimaru go to Minato. I will follow you after I take Kushina to safety."
"No Tsunade-sama, I'll be fine alone. Please help Minato..." Kushina begged.
Tsunade nodded. The sannins leaped. Jiraiya hoped that he was not too late.
The sannins arrived at the secret spot. They froze.
In front of them was Minato, dying. Blood soaked his clothes as he panted. One of his hand hanging limply covered in blood. The whole battlefield was covered by the kunais.
Beyond Minato, a man with orange mask stood. Aside from his panting. He seemed to be in full health.
"How?" Jiraiya asked. Shock filled his being. Minato was one of the strongest shinobi. If not the strongest. How did an unknown defeat him? Especially without any visible wound.
"..." Orochimaru stared calmly. Though inwardly he was worried. Someone who Minato could not beat definitely could destroy him. Loathe as he to admit, Minato was stronger than him.
Tsunade froze at the sight of blood. Her fear of blood might be nearly healed. But the huge amount of blood triggered it.
Minato disappeared in a yellow flash. He appeared behind the man. Rasengan appeared on his hand. he moved to strike the man. The Rasengan passed through him. Minato flashed again to another direction and continued his Rasengan. The man's eye, revealed to be a Sharingan transformed for a split-second before Rasengan connected.
"Foolish man. I have proven to you my power. your efforts are futile," the man stated. His voice carried power within it.
"...yes, but the last time I struck you with Rasengan. I felt your chakra lowers drastically even though there is no visible wound. So I tried another one," Minato panted.
"And it shall be your death!" the man struck.
Jiraiya and Orochimaru attempted to stop him. However they were not fast enough as Minato's heart was stabbed by the man's hand.
Orochimaru kicked the man away and Jiraiya tried to help Minato.
"Tsunade! Heal him!" he yelled.
Tsunade snapped out of her daze and moved to heal the Hokage. The other sannins crouched around them.
"...no... the wound is too deep..." Minato coughed blood, "Tsunade-sama, Orochimaru-sama, Jiraiya-sensei... please take care of Kushina and Naruto... the man... cannot use that technique again..." Minato closed his eyes. Forever.
Jiraiya's eyes burned with fury. Orochimaru hissed. Tsunade stood, her eyes turned cold.
The man faced them. Eye closed.
"...why did he close his eye?" Jiraiya asked.
"Minato-kun informed us that he would not be able to use that jutsu again. And the man seemed to have used it twice," Orochimaru analyzed.
"So, one jutsu needs one eye..." Tsunade concluded.
"Well then..." the sanins moved.
Uzumaki Kushina watched her baby with worry-filled eyes. They were in Minato's safe house. It's location unknown to anyone but Minato, Jiraiya and her.
"I wonder if Minato is alright?" she asked out loud.
A knock sounded from the door. She froze. Minato would not knock.
Chakra chains shot from her hand. The chains went through the door and captured the one behind it.
She stared at the visitor.
Tsunade stared at her with a grave expression. The chains released her.
"...I'm sorry Kushina..." Tsunade apologized. She moved to show what stood behind her.
Kushina's face was filled with horror. Orochimaru and Jiraiya showed the body of Minato they carried.
That day, the sannins and the Uzumaki understood one fact.
Namikaze Minato was dead.
