Naruto: Wrath of the Emperor

A Naruto Fanfiction

Original Story 'Naruto: Emperor's Dawn' by ChrisM2011

By Snafu the Great

Snafu's Disclaimer: Naruto belongs to Kishimoto. With the success of Rise of the Emperor, a thought had came into my head. What if things had been done differently? What if all of Konoha save for four of its clans were hostile towards Naruto? What if Hinata had left with him? This is a much darker version of Rise of the Emperor, with Tsunade and Jiraiya being hostile towards Naruto and the Western Empire.

Update: As Naruto wields the Rinnegan, he also knows the Six Paths jutsu (which is the parent jutsu of the Six Paths of Pain), and I have updated his bio as such.

- Age 0: Became the jinchuuriki of the Nine-Tails

- Age 6: Enrolls into the Konohagakure Ninja Academy

- Age 12: Graduates with the rank of Genin, assigned to Team 7 with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno.

- Age 13: Banished from Konoha following the success of the Sasuke Retrieval Mission. Escapes from Fire Country along with Hinata Hyuuga and heads west. Rescues Kumo kunoichi/jinchuuriki Yugito Nii from the Akatsuki and heads for the Western Continent.

- Age 14: Kills the most powerful of the warlords, Rokubungi Oda and takes control of his forces. Begins a campaign to unify the continent and bring about peace. Former Mist swordsman Zabuza Momichi and his partner Haku join Naruto's growing army.

- Age 16: Defeats the last three warlords at the Battle of South Ichiyama (and marries Hinata in the midst of the battle). The South Ichiyama Treaty ends the Unification Wars with Naruto and Hinata as the sole rulers of the unified lands. With the backing of his army and the people, Naruto is made Emperor of the Western Empire.

- Age 17: Summons Spring Damiyo Koyuki Kazahana, Kazekage Gaara of the Sand and Mizukage Mei Terumi for a secret summit. The four leaders sign a military and trade alliance. Rescues and later grants Kumo jinchuuriki Killer Bee political asylum in the Empire, along with his brother A, the deposed Raikage, having been overthrown by a Oto-backed Raikage. A serves as one of his senior advisers, while Bee...is still Bee. Tracks down the remaining jinchuuriki (Roshi, Han, Utakata and Fu) and protects them from the Akatsuki by offering them asylum within the Empire.

With the jinchuuriki backing him up as well as the Nine-Tails and a sizable amount of soldiers, Madara and Itachi Uchiha are killed, and the Akatsuki are routed and destroyed. The jinchuuriki are declared national treasures of the Empire.

Trained By:

- Kurama - Nine-Tails (Leadership and battle tactics, Taijitsu, Seals and Ninjitsu)

- Zabuza Momichi (Mist-style swordsmanship)

- Sonshi (Samurai swordsmanship, battle tactics, and Political Intrigue)

- Yugito Nii (battle tactics and assassination techniques)

Favorite Food: Barbecue

Likes: Helping people

Dislikes: Konohagakure no Sato, Cell Seven, and his former godparents

Fighting Style: Kitsune-style Taijutsu and Ninjutsu, Uzumaki-Namikaze-style Fuinjutsu and Taijutsu (think Krav Maga, Keysi Fighting Method and Karate combined), and a combination of ninja and samurai swordsmanship.

Skills and Signature Techniques:

- Enhanced Strength and Agility:

Through the brutal training he endured at the hands of Kurama, Zabuza Momichi and Yugito Nii, Naruto is now stronger than Tsunade, while he is faster than Rock Lee without the weights

- Kenjutsu

Zabuza Momichi has been training Naruto in swordsmanship, and he is just as ruthless as his teacher.

- Assassination Techniques:

An understudy of Yugito Nii alongside Hinata, Naruto is the master of the silent kill.

- Samurai Swordsmanship

Aside from being a shinobi, Naruto has been trained in the ways of the Samurai by Sonshi, his specialty being the quick-draw.

- Flying Thunder God and Flash Step:

The technique which made his father famous (or infamous if you're an Iwa shinobi). Rather than the yellow flash which is signature to the Hiraishin, Naruto's version has a crimson flash, earning him the nickname 'The Crimson Fury.' The Flash Step is an updated version of the Hiraishin, with Naruto moving so fast that he leaves a after-image.

- Kage Bushin:

Aside from the standard version of the technique, Naruto has added exploding clones to his movelist.

- Rasengan:

Naruto's signature technique. Can destroy anything in its path, if he is using the Rinnegan's power.

- Rasenshuriken:

Combined with his wind affinity, it attacks the opponent's cells, severing them. Now that he has then Rinnegan, he had added several more variants to the jutsu. The Fire variant reduces anyone caught in it to carbon. The Earth variant can shatter bones and rupture organs.

- Chakra Chains:

Based on his mother's attack, Naruto uses them to sap the opponent's chakra to the point that they are severely weakened

- Deadly Tempest:

Inspired by Temari's Kamitachi, Naruto has developed his own version of the technique, using hurricane-force winds to attack. The Wind variant uses supercooled air to numb the opponent, while the Fire variant uses superheated air to burn the opponent.

- Chakra Wind Blades:

Deadly wind-laced chakra blades that can dismember flesh and destroy nearly anything in its path

- Shadow Dancer:

Think Morrigan's Darkness Illusion...only with four Shadow Clones

- Shinra Tensei and Banshou Ten'in:

The signature techniques of anyone wielding the Rinnegan. Shinra Tensei pushes objects away, while the Banshou Ten'in pulls them in.

- Demon's Gate:

Used to open a massive portal from the Empire to an area of his choosing, as long as he had been there before.

- Vajira Slash

Similar to Vergil's Dimensional Slash Hyper Combo.

- Wrath of the Six Paths:

Variant of Nagato's Six Paths of Pain jutsu, only that Naruto does not have the ability to control numerous bodies like Nagato. Naruto can either incorporate the paths into his fighting style, or summon a Rinnegan-powered shadow clone with the path of his choice. The Wrath of the Six Paths puts him on par with Jiraiya's Sage Mode.

Deva Path: Naruto's primary path of choice, which allows him to manipulate both attractive and repulsive forces.

Asura Path: Inspired by a visit to the Cult of Asura's Temple in Shinoku, Naruto's Asura Path gives him an appearance similar to that of its god (think Naruto does Asura's Wrath). Naruto's first form gives him metallic arms, while the second form adds four more to the total. His strength is increased a hundredfold.

Human Path: Naruto's interrogation jutsu. Same as Pain's Human Path, without the soul stealing.

Animal Path: Summons Kurama in her fox form to attack.

Preta Path: Can absorb chakra and most Ninjitsu, which resupplies Naruto's own chakra reserves. He can also use this to boost another person's chakra reserves, of which he used on Hinata more than once.

Naraka Path: The only genjutsu (surprisingly) which Naruto can use. This is for interrogation purposes, as the unlucky victim thinks that he is being judged by the Shinigami.

Outer Path: The forbidden path to Naruto. He knows the jutsus which make the Outer Path, but refuses to use them.

Favorite Food: Chocolate, Cinnamon buns

Likes: Training with Naruto

Dislikes: Same as her husband

Fighting Styles: Kin Shiki Jyuukenpo (Forbidden Style of the Gentle Sixt - basically the Hyuuga-ryuu Jyuuken overhauled to remove the flaws and weaknesses, making it more deadly - think Hinata fighting like Jun Kazama), Kitsune-style Taijutsu (think a combination of Wing Chun and Wushu) and Ninjutsu

Signature Techniques:

- Enhanced Senses and Agility:

As she is the third Kitsune Sannin, Hinata enjoys several perks. Aside from an upgrade in her Bykaugan, her sense of smell and hearing has improved.

- Medical Ninjitsu:

A talented medic-nin, Hinata's skills in healing are even better than Tsunade and the Konohagakure shinobi.

- Assassination Techniques:

As she can heal, she can also kill. A former understudy of Yugito Nii, Hinata is also a skilled assassin.

- Kage Bushin:

Naruto had taught her the technique, as she can also use the standard and exploding clones.

- Kin Shiki Jyuukenpo:

Hinata was trained in the Jyuukenpo by her father, and through that, had made the Gentle Fist more suited for her style.

- Eight Trigrams: Rotating Heaven

Rather than it being an defensive technique, Hinata had changed it into an offensive technique similar to that of Kung Lao's Whirlwind Spin. Covering her body from head to toe in chakra, Hinata spins, knocking the opponent into the air.

- Protection of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms

A variant of the 64 Palms which Hinata had created for herself. Using a constant stream of chakra combined with her natural flexibility, she can reach any point around herself, allowing her to strike numerous targets within her field of assault.

- Eight Trigrams Thirty-Two Palms:

Nothing special, as she does this the same way she always has done. Only difference is now rather than the Eight Trigrams pattern being green-and-black, it is now gold-and-red.

- Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms:

Hinata does this with a shadow clone; the real Hinata does 32 palms, while the clones does the other half 32.

- Eight Trigrams One Hundred Twenty-Eight Palms:

Hinata performs this move just like Gen's Zetuei Super Combo (in most cases, she even says the same quote: "You cannot dodge what you cannot see!")

About the Fox Sage: Part warrior, part healer, the Fox Sage is truly an elite warrior.

About the Samurai in the Western Empire: The samurai which serve and live in the Unified West are not the traditional brand of samurai seen in most anime and movies per se. The samurai in the Western Empire are in some ways similar to the shinobi. What the shinobi considers chakra, in the Western Empire, to the samurai, it is called ki energy. The samurai uses their internal energy to reinforce the strength of their weapons (similar as to how Kunou and Mousse do to their own weapons in Ranma ½). Aside from the traditional samurai weaponry, some samurai uses some exotic weapons custom built by the Himura Weapons Shops (such as the Chinese-style Dao and Straight Swords and the Nepalese Kukhri knives – but for the sake of the story, they are all weapons with origins in the Western Empire). Like the Shinobi Ranking System, the Samurai also has a ranking system of their own: Aonisaibushi (Amateur Samurai) is the equivalent of Genin, Chukanbushi (Middle Samurai) is the equivalent of Chuunin, Seiseibushi (Elite Samurai) is the equivalent of Jounin. Only Sonshi, Naruto's father figure and mentor is the only one to obtain the rank of Kodenbushi (Legendary Samurai) the equivalent of Sannin. The samurai as just as strong and resilient as their shinobi counterparts, and have a good working relationship with the shinobi in the Western Empire. In some cases, there is an unnamed class of warriors who had embraced both the shinobi and samurai ways, making them even more dangerous.

About the Elite Guards: The Elite Guards are the Imperial equivalent of the Fire Lord's Guardian Ninja. Following Naruto and Hinata's ascension to Emperor and Empress Consort, Sonshi had warned them both that as the leaders of the Empire, they both will always be targets for those opposed to their rule. Naruto and Hinata's first order was the creation of an elite group of warriors, both samurai and shinobi to serve as their bodyguards. Each member of the Elite Guard are classified as S-Rank combatants and are tough enough to face down even the most battle-hardened Jounin, Danzou's ROOT ANBU or even the Akatsuki. The Elite Guards consists of six battle-hardened shinobi and samurai who carry the rank of Jounin and Seiseibushi respectively. The members of the guard are Sana Sonshi, Hideo Kibagami, Roh Shainto, Takuma Chiba, and Rena Shiratori. Major Benisato Minazuki is the leader of the Guard.

About the Unified West in General: Unlike the Elemental Countries, in which the shinobi is the dominant force in the region, the Unified West is a combination of both Japanese and Chinese warrior cultures – in other words, before Naruto and Hinata arrived was basically the Three Kingdoms meet the Warring States in a free-for-all, but it still contains the Damiyo system used in the East. Aside from humans, the West is also home to half-demons and hanyou who live in the badlands and the forests in the Southern Region.
