Heroes of the Leaf - Naruto Fanfic
My first ever work of fanfiction and it's on Naruto. Story is very action and battle driven, and even though Naruto still plays a solid role, there's not going to one single main character--rather, the main protagonist is none other than the Konoha 11 themselves, whom I'll be giving some new jutsu and more strength overall. Story takes place months after the events of The Last: Naruto the Movie.
Latest Chapter: 5 - The Undead Four
â€œUgh, damn it, morning already?â€ moaned Kankuro until he heard a second explosion.
Now wide awake, Kankuro looked outside the night window to see the village under attack.
â€œWhat in the world?! Gaara! Temari!â€
Kankuro quickly went to check on his siblings. He saw that Gaara wasnâ€™t in his room. Suddenly, the wall behind him was blown up. Kankuro turned around to see three shinobi levitating on jet boots looking his way.
â€œWind Style: Wind Scythe Jutsu!â€ Temari arrived just in time to eliminate the three with just one swing of her fan.
â€œTemari, what happened?!â€ asked Kankuro.
â€œHurry up and get your puppets! Weâ€™re under attack! Gaaraâ€™s already outside!â€ demanded Temari.
Kankuro nodded and quickly did as he was told.
There were enemy shinobi gliding around everywhere striking down many of the Sandâ€™s shinobi at rapid speeds. They were armed with various sorts of weapons including...
â€œThey have guns?!â€ asked Temari.
â€œJust who the hell are we up against?!â€ asked Kankuro.
Suddenly, another enemy ninja appeared right in front of the two, about to attack. Shortly, Baki, the former mentor of the Sand Siblings swiftly arrived to cut down the enemy ninja with his Blades of Wind.
â€œBaki!â€ said Kankuro.
â€œDonâ€™t stop moving!â€ warned Baki frantically. â€œAh! Behind you!â€
Temari quickly got rid of the enemies targeting the trio from behind her. As she did, Kankuro bent down to unmask the enemy Baki struck down.
â€œTheyâ€™re... mechanized!â€ gasped Kankuro.
â€œWhat?!â€ exclaimed Temari.
â€œSo weâ€™re up against robots, huh?â€ asked Baki. â€œStill doesnâ€™t explain where theyâ€™ve come from.â€
â€œLetâ€™s get moving. I just heard more coming that way!â€ alerted Temari.
Kankuro used his puppet strings on the fallen robot.
â€œIt looks like these things are powered by chakra. I can control its every part easily,â€ explained Kankuro.
â€œPerfect. Hold on to it if you can, after we fend them off, we can analyze it to find out who the enemy is!â€ responded Baki.
â€œAnd for the time being, I can use their own weapons against them!â€
â€œI hope you figure out its functions quickly then,â€ said Temari. â€œHere they come!â€
More robot ninja appeared and surrounded the three.
â€œTemari, get ready!â€ ordered Baki.
â€œI know!â€ Temari responded.
Right before the robots could shoot them, Baki and Temari combined their jutsu to form a strong barrier of wind deflecting on the bullets. Kankuro followed up by shooting the enemy robots with his own newly acquired â€œpuppet.â€
â€œWell, this thing isnâ€™t half bad!â€ Kankuro remarked. â€œLetâ€™s see what else this thing can do!â€
Kankuro had his robot summon two light sabers to perform melee attacks on some of the remaining robots surrounding them. He also tried controlling other robots to test out their functions. Temari and Baki continued their attacks as well.
â€œHaving fun, Kankuro?â€ joked Temari.
â€œWhat? Something wrong about a puppet-master using the enemyâ€™s puppets?â€ responded Kankuro.
â€œNot the time! Now letâ€™s hurry and keep moving!â€ ordered Baki.
The three could see from a distance that Gaara was fending off the enemies relatively easily.
â€œThereâ€™s Gaara!â€ called Kankuro. â€œLooks like heâ€™s doing well!â€
â€œLetâ€™s head over there!â€ said Temari.
Kankuro, Temari, and Baki continued to take down enemies along the way.
â€œDonâ€™t get carried away, Kankuro!â€ warned Temari.
â€œThatâ€™s right, the enemy is still unlike any we have went up against,â€ warned Baki. â€œEven if you have some advantage over them.â€
â€œBut themâ€™s the breaks when you send a mechanized army against the wrong guy!â€ gloated Kankuro.
â€œIs that so?â€ asked a voice from behind.
Temari, Kankuro, and Baki quickly turned around to see a cloaked and hooded figure in black. His face could not be seen.
â€œWho are you? Are you with the enemy?â€ asked Baki.
â€œOr are you the one leading those bots?!â€ asked Kankuro.
â€œNeed I answer?â€ responded the cloaked figure. His voice was moderately deep but of a young man. â€œDo I look like an ally of yours?â€
He suddenly appeared right in the middle of the trio to attack them and the three evaded accordingly.
â€œWind Style: Blades of Wind!â€ Baki went straight to the cloaked enemy to attack but the latter quickly retaliated by slashing Baki in the stomach with a blue light saber.
â€œBaki!â€ exclaimed Temari.
â€œDamn!â€ grunted the injured Baki.
Kankuro pulled the enemy away from Baki by attaching his strings to the cloaked enemy.
â€œTemari, now!â€ commanded Kankuro.
â€œRight!â€ Temari swung her fan to unleash a vortex of wind on the enemy; however, the cloaked figure had completely disappeared from the spot.
â€œThat fan,â€ said the cloaked figure, who had reappeared on top of a building. â€œYou are Temari, the strongest Wind-Style kunoichi in the Hidden Sand. That over there is your brother Kankuro, the last of the Sandâ€™s puppet-masters.â€
â€œAnd what of it, huh?!â€ asked Kankuro.
â€œHow much do you know about us?â€ asked Temari.
â€œI know that you two are Kazekageâ€™s siblings. That said, where is he now?â€
Just then, a circle of sand surrounding the cloaked figure.
â€œYou called?â€ said Gaara, standing on top of a cloud of sand in the air.
â€œGaara!â€ Temari and Kankuro called out simultaneously.
â€œTemari! Kankuro! Get Baki to a safe place!â€ ordered Gaara.
Kankuro picked Baki up. But before he and Temari can leave with their former mentor, Baki warned Gaara about the enemy.
â€œLord Kazekage... be careful!â€ grunted Baki. â€œHe teleports instantaneously!â€
â€œLord Kazekage, I am honored to meet you,â€ said the cloaked man.
â€œCut the formalities. Who are you and what are you after?â€ asked Gaara.
â€œI have no intention of identifying myself. But to answer your second question, Iâ€™ve come here to test the villageâ€™s military strength as well as your own. From what Iâ€™ve learned, out of the Five Great Nations, the Hidden Sand seems to be the strongest second only to the Leaf.â€
â€œYou attacked my village, just to test us? I donâ€™t buy it. Moreover, youâ€™ll be targeting the Leaf as well, am I right? Or have you already been there?â€
â€œWhy, because they are stronger? Be at ease, I honestly have little interest in the Leaf. Personally, I like the color silver more than I do gold. But please, feel free to prove yourself stronger than the Hokage!â€
The cloaked figure warped right in front of Gaara trying to attack him with two light sabers. Gaara easily blocked his attacks and unleashed a whirlwind of sand around him.
â€œSand Shower Barrage!â€
Gaara unleashed an endless barrage of sand bullets in front of him, a tactic that would prevent the cloaked enemy to teleport or do anything in his front side. Without a doubt, his adversary would be forced to strike from behind and with that in mind, Gaara had preset his rear defense into a solid blade of sand, appearing and slashing the enemy the instant he appears right behind Gaara to attack.
â€œGah!â€ uttered the enemy, whose wound let out sparks of electricity.
â€œAnother robot, huh?â€ asked Gaara.
Gaara then wrapped his opponent in a Sand Coffin.
â€œNow answer my question: Why are you â€˜testingâ€™ my village? What is your true purpose? Who are you?â€
Gaara attempted to remove the enemyâ€™s hood with his sand, but once again, the enemy had teleported away.
â€œParticle Style: Atomic Dismantling Jutsu,â€ the cloaked enemy spoke from a distance as he conjured up multiple Particle Style cubes that moved towards Gaara.
Particle Style?! thought Gaara, as he struggled to avoid the cubes. Ultimately, one of the cubes caught him and detonated. However, it had merely caught a sand clone.
Scalar Sand Shower!
Gaara overwhelmed the area with a soft shower of sand before attacking his enemy again.
â€œThereâ€™s only one person alive I know who can use Particle Style. And yet, not even he can summon that many Particle Style objects!â€
The enemy tried to evade Gaaraâ€™s subsequent attacks. However, he could barely move.
â€œWhat?!â€ exclaimed the cloaked figure, suspended in midair.
â€œSand Paralysis,â€ explained Gaara. â€œHave you not noticed the Sand Shower surrounding you? Itâ€™s no ordinary one--the sand will keep you from using any of your functions as long as youâ€™re in three-dimensional space!â€
â€œBut only in this village right?â€ asked the cloaked figure.
â€œItâ€™s time I receive answers from you. Spill it, who are you and what is your true objective?â€
However, the enemy merely chuckled.
â€œIâ€™m sorry. It is still too early to answer. I promise I will answer you... once the entire shinobi world belongs to me, myself, and I!â€
And with that, the cloaked figure vanished and never came back.
Heâ€™s after the entire shinobi world?! And... thought Gaara.
