I posted this one once a while back. I had just discovered Naruto, a year or two after it started airing, and joined a Naruto RP forum that an internet acquaintance of mine had set up. I didn't realize at the time just what sort of connotations the Naruto fandom had, so I was kind of asking for it, but here's some of the highlights.
I create my first character, a fairly self-insert Mist Village dude who was very agile but pretty average in all other respects. My first thread, just for kicks, I have him leave Mist Village to go "find himself." Before he can get more than a few miles from the village, he gets randomly attacked by some guy's original Akatsuki leader, an 18-year-old ex-Hokage named Cloud Uchiha, who can throw around Chidori like hotcakes.
After going back and forth a bit, repeating a pattern of "Cloud charges at my guy with Chidori, my guy ducks out of the way just in time," this dude calls for backup and gets Ace, a 13-year-old genderswap of Gaara who is also in Akatsuki, except they didn't seal her demon because she's too useful to them.
I had had the foresight to give my guy more than just PEW PEW LAZORZ abilities, so he was eventually able to give them the slip by hiding among the trees and creating an illusion of a raging blizzard to block their vision. They can't have somebody escaping from them, so Cloud decides to make an explosion of that special black fire stuff in a mile radius, except for some reason it doesn't affect the two of them. Out of nowhere, Tsunade shows up and makes a holy shield somehow, which protects my character from the black fire and absorbs all of it.
I guess the two of them figured they couldn't bullshit their way through a fight with somebody who was actually supposed to be powerful, because after that they ran off.
