Orochimaru time!Time to make him pay for Hinata!
>>42651521Okay, so, We blast Kabuto back, knock him down, use Shuriken to wrap him up in explosive tag wire. Even if he cuts through it, just getting 20+ tags close to the guy will be enough to leave him a charred splatter.
>>42651521So, what's up with Hinata and Neji? And also Sasuke and Itachi?
>>42651521Do we finally get to shatter Tsunade's expectations by knocking Kabuto right out of the fucking world?
>>42651521time 4 swords :^^^^^^^^^^^^^)We seriously need to start practicing with that shit though. With our release and our speed, we'd be a fucking monster to face in melee.
In order to make up for his weakened state, Sarutobi Sensei is cycling through elemental jutsu to strengthen them, keeping the giant snake at bay.You intend to stand your ground and fight Kabuto, but as the other snake dives at you, Kabuto jumps from its head and makes a break for the rest of your group. Shizune gets ready to fight him off.>A.Try and get rid of the giant snake (how?)>B.Head back and help fight Kabuto
>>42651600>>A.Try and get rid of the giant snake (how?)Climb into its gullet and Impact Release until its insides are mush.
>>42651600>Giant Shattershot, try to catch them both in the blastUse roughly the same as Chidori.
>>42651599Thank you anon.Swords are cool.Way cooler than silly polearms.>>42651600>Summon Monkey!
>>42651626>not using a naginata
>>42651600>A.>B.Wrap the chain around Kabuto's foot, then drag him into the snake. Then use a shukaku-level shattershot on the both of them.
>>42651600>Make the snake chase us into Kabuto
>>42651587Okay, so something you guys never got the chance to learn, and likely wouldn't, is that Neji doesn't have any animosity towards the main house by this point. It's all faded away. When Jiraiya came to the academy and personally administered the test, and only let Neji pass, he saw his potential and wanted to see if he could make lightning strike twice, like with Itachi. He immediately put Neji into ANBU and gave him tons of training to get him to reach his potential. The main house didn't like this but Jiraiya wasn't having any of their shit and has gone there personally to put his foot down several times. So Neji is doing fucking great.On Hinata's end there's no animosity either, but that's because she doesn't really care. She's always focused somewhere else.As for Itachi and Sasuke, they have a friendly relationship, even though Sasuke does have a bit of an inferiority complex.
>>42651600>B. Tackle Kabuto away from them and towards the snake."Buckle up, bitch, we're goin for a ride!"
>>42651600>A.Try and get rid of the giant snake (how?)Snakes are very sensitive to vibrations. Punch it in the face with some Impact chakra and it will probably decide we're not worth the effort. It's just a summon, it doesn't get paid enough for this shit.
>>42651599Even better if we got haku to give us Zabuzas sword.
>>42651599We can channel our kekkek genkai through weapons now right?Use that with knife on a rope and the Katana.
>>42651626>Swords are cooler than PolearmsGetalookatthisfaggot.jpg
>>42651726Neji and Itachi are doing greatThats all I ever wanted We gotta get on the ANBU side of things guys>>42651740>>42651599Why are there always swordfags in anime quests? Like why are you always so completely fixated on swords
>>42651600A. Run up the snake, try to use concentrated focused impact in the back of the snakes head
>>42651825Jaw would be better. Snakes hear through those, an Impact punch to the jaw would hurt as bad as if someone stabbed you right in the ear drum. The best would be if we got it right at the mastoid process where the jaw meets the skull. That might knock it out entirely.
>>42651814To be fair, our particular release would go very well with swords. And also axes, and greatswords, personally I'm in favor of getting a nice, big hammer.
>>42651814Axes are better and swords are way over rated but this is mutherfucking Zabuzas sword we're talking about. Its a national treasure and part of an exclusive seven piece set.
>>42651599>Training with swords when we could master staffs and use that badass staff that Enma transforms intoSeriously swordfag?
>>42651864I wanted a piercing shot
>>42651874or the adamantine staff that Enma transforms into that can alter its shape and size to the will of the wielderOr we could just swordfag
>>42651901>Training with Konohamaru's brostaff.
>>42651900Dude Haku already offered it to us and we said no
>>42651600I'll second pulling Kabuto into the snake and then turning them both to mush.
>>42651874I want a small hammer with a pick on the other end. Something understated. The whole thing is chakra metal. Flat end for wine/ impact, pointy end for lighting and last fine point impact
>>42651918this, I bet we're going to be ready for that shit pretty soon since I doubt Enma takes the same truckload of chakra required to tow a fuckhuge toad off his mountain.
>>42651990Wind*/impact Laser* fine point impact
Honestly I wouldnt mind joining tenten in being a weapon expert, that way we can have exotic swords for the swordfags, staffs for the Enmufags (which i am) and traps and explosives for everybody who's still liking our original concept
>>42651990Will we kill one asshole by throwing said weapon at his face?Will the crowbill/pickaxe become our spirit animal?Will iron master all?
>>42651990So you want the hammer Celebrimbor made the Rings of Power with? The one Sauron used to brutally murder him and his family?
>Tfw when people were talking about getting a sword I thought they meant a Scimitar or a Katana or something but instead they mean a goofy, oversized sword
>>42651617>>42651619>>42651737>>42651825https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4N-Q14MvOI&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85&index=32As the snake dives at you, you get your jutsu ready. "Impact Release:Shattershot!"The blast blows the snake back, but it hisses and makes another lunge. This one is slower however, and you can easily dodge it. Once the snake's head hits the ground missing you, you channel Impact chakra into your fist and strike it from below. With the amount of chakra you expend on this blow, the snake rolls over and shudders. It doesn't seem to want to get back up any time soon.You turn back to the group to see Shizune on the ground. Apparently she can't move her legs. You confront Kabuto, whose hands are glowing."So you want to fight me now, Kon?" he asks, getting into a stance.>A.Respond>B.Attack (specify)>C.Guard the others>D.Other
>>42652058>A.Respond"Don't see how I have much choice.">C.Guard the others
>>42652058>A. "...I just took down a giant snake in two hits. I haven't even broken out the explosives yet. What exactly are you expecting to do against me?">B. Start grabbing shuriken with explosive wire.
>>42652058>Summoning Jutsuthe more people involved in this on our side the better
>>42652058>A.Respond"sur-.....uuhhh. whats with the glowing hand?"Can we feedback this scalpe?
>>42652058>B.Attack (specify)use shogi rope thingy to keep at range. prep a shitload of explosive tag traps between him and Shizune
>>42652088sure. but are you ready to take the hit?
>>42652080This is good.Inb4 DarkKon comes back
>>42652088Probably not. It's not a tangible object, it can reach through solid matter to strike past defenses. Trying to apply a counter-force to it wouldn't work well.
>>42652080>>42652083Combo of this
>>42652058>B.Shattershot to push him back and keep him from the others.
>>42652058>>A.RespondNo not really. But since you are attacking people we have come to get it kinda forces the issue ya know? Not to mention you being a traitorous scum.
>>42652084Oh yeah1.Get the imitation monkey2,double team with wire, explosion and impact3.???4. profit
>>42652129Holy shit you're rightWe could pull some fang over fang/Android 17&18 shit with the copycat monkey
>>42652058>B. One anon suggested a cool kunai-explosive wire thing where we vault over the guy and wrap them in explosives. Can we do that here?
>>42652080"I don't see how I have much choice." you respond, taking up a position between Kabuto and the others.You pull some kunai and wire with explosives on them, and try to wrap around Kabuto, but he cuts through the wire using his hands as he closes in on you. In a moment, he's right up on you, holding one of your wires with some active tags still on it."You do love your explosives don't you, Kon?" he asks with a grin.>A.Get out of there>B.Try to take them from him>C.Try to knock him back>D.Other
>>42652292>C.Try to knock him back
>>42652292>>C.Try to knock him backImpact Release Scatterhsot?
>>42652292>A.>D. Detonate and brace for danger close. Maybe try to coat yourself in chakra so you can pull the force of the blast around you.
>>42652292>D.Other "Yes!"Can we set them off now?
>>42652292>C.Try to knock him back>D.OtherMaybe also try mixing lightning into the impact blast as well? See if we can ignite the bombs, too.
>>42652292>C.Use Scattershot to push him back.>D.If C. succeeds, then proceed to detonate the explosives as a surprise for Glasses.
>>42652292>D. "My relationship with my explosives is perfectly healthy, I'll have you know."
>>42652292set off the explosives in his hand, use a burst of our impact release to protect ourselves from the shockwave
>>42652292>D.OtherVacuum Wave him away, and detonate the explosives he's holding.
>>42652292>D. "Well...yeah. I thought that was obvious." Then detonate. And try not to die. Impact release can help somehow, right?
>>42652373>surpriseHe's holding them up to you on purpose
>>42652374>"Yeah man it's not my fault they only live for a few seconds but at least they go out with a bang.
>>42652406I got a baaaaaaad feeling
>>42652292>D. Grab Kabuto, pull him close>Open up your vest, revealing the literal fuckton of explosives you have>Cover yourself in chakra feedback style, but with the intent to neutralize force instead of simply turn it around>"You don't know me very well, do you?">Detonate.
>>42652443... Did we become a suicide bomber while I wasn't looking?
>>42652292>D.OtherUse Feedback against him.
>>42652457The idea of the chakra use is to survive it.
>>42652457Did you miss the part where we survive?
>>42652457>>42652443actually a i think we could do this with feedback but instead of reflecting damage we just stop it from harming usCall it "Shockproof" instead of feedback
>>42652495I was thinking more "Unbreakable Shield" jutsu. Then we can make an "Unstoppable Spear" jutsu to play on the 'Piercing Spear, Unpiercable Shield' story which actually did originate in China.
>>42652457>tfw we got recruited for Jinshi cultwe are getting more and more closer to being Akatsuki's fav
>>42652305>>42652310>>42652325>>42652346>>42652373Before the tags go off, you try to push Kabuto back."Impact Release:Shattershot!" The blast pushes Kabuto backwards quite a ways, but he's dropped the tags before he was hit, and they detonate between you.By the time the smoke clears, you don't see Kabuto."Below you!" you hear Shizune shout.By the time you hear it however, Kabuto has grabbed your left ankle. Whatever move he did, you can't move your left leg anymore.Kabuto emerges from the ground. "The effect of your release is pretty interesting." he notes. "Not entirely unlike one of Tsunade's jutsu I recently experienced. I guess it wasn't as effective on me as you were hoping?">A.Respond>B.Blast him again>C.Throw projectiles>D.Other
>>42652472>>42652493>>42652495>>42652443I'm all for new applications of our release, but I'm not sure being covered in explosives in a fight against Kabuto is a good test to see if it actually works. I mean the fight against Lee didn't overly matter if we tried something new, this though could end up with a hand in our chest.
>>42652528I was going for the technical naming style that we're going with "feedback" "shattershot" and "impact release" but thats also good
>>42652472>>42652493Still feels like a suicide bomber type move. Plus, do we even know if such a move will work to protect us?
>>42652553>>A.Respond"No, you're wrong Kabuto!" Then loook behind him and shout "Now", if he falls for it and turns as if to protect himself throw more explosives
>>42652553>>A.RespondYeah well screw you. What I'm twelve that's a valid retort!!
>>42652553>A.Respond "It got you away from me temporarily, so I can't call it a failure."Then do an axe-kick with our unnamed version of the release on the hand he's holding us with.
>>42652598we're 13 m8call him a dumbass and then tell him that he fell for our trapKids that age don't like admiting defeat
>>42651626>>42651636>not a jumonji yari, so we can use the cross arms to trip, disarm, and otherwise be a sneeky breeky cheeky cunt
>>42652553>A.Respond"Nah, I was just trying to make space. Speaking of which...">D.OtherHit him with a Vacuum Wave. It's less chakra-intensive than Shattershot, we can use it more often.
>>42652553>A. "Speaking of Tsunade, what did you do to her? Some kind of Genjutsu?">D. Bit thumb, go for a summon of one of the genjutsu monkeys.
>>42652553>A.Respond"Shut up, four eyes!">D.OtherSummon some monkey to help.
>>42652553>D. Point at him, start gathering chakra release in the finger for a tight beam. "Yeah? Well try this." Shoot a beam of impact release at him, aim for the heart or neck or something vital.
>>42652553Is he.....analyzing our moves?
>>42652553That tilt B from Kabuto>Summon a fucking monkeyWe are so outmatched unless we do something sacrificial like naruto we are fucked, and sadly because our most powerful abilities result in explosions thats not an option, we need help
>>42652553>D.OtherSummon a fucking monkey before he stops one of our arms
>>42652553>>42652666Second this. Let's try for a beam attack.
>>42652042>implying Shadow of Mordor is in any way canonGet the fuck out.I enjoyed the game, but its story was a mass raping of the history of Middle Earth.
>>42652726I just thought the hammer was cool, man.
>>42652742You like to pound dontcha anon?
>>42652647>>42652686>>42652709>>42652732You have to do something before he takes the use of one of your arms. But first, you have to get him off of you. You take a deep breath and start to spin. "Wind Release:Vacuum Wave!" The blades of air push Kabuto away and give you an opening.You quickly bite your thumb, gather chakra, and make the hand signs. "Summoning Jutsu!"In a puff of smoke appears Sarujizo. Seems like that's all you could get on such short notice.The monkey looks to Kabuto. "You in hot water, kid? What do you need me to do?">Write-in a plan
Question, who are we summoning?
>>42652742It's just a really prissy interpretation of real world warhammers.
>>42652880Can you give a quick run down of Sarukizo's capabilities?I believe he has the mask user switch which is handy but i'd like to know if theres anything else he excels at/is better at before deciding
>>42652880Lets go with a plan to confuse himSarujizo transforms into Kon and they attack together Ala android 18 and 17Let Sarujizo take the lead in the attack and when Kabuto gets guard down strike him a impact release attack
>>42652880"Hold these for about three seconds."Hand him a fucking huge amount of tags, then launch the monkey at him with a shattershot. Dismiss him mid flight, then detonate.
>>42652880Can he copies people's technique?If so, become kabuto and copy that blue glow
If we want a weapon that would work well with our release, we would need something heavy like a hammer or mace. Swords won't really work well unless we get a greatsword.
>>42652944Pffffft. Alright, I'll second this.
>>42652969You mean like Zabuza's sword?
>>42652936>>42652950He can't use other people's techniques even if he transforms into them, he can only use ones he knows, which is a handful of fire and various utility jutsusWhen he transforms, he does have any weapons that person has on them, though
>>42652880"I need a willing partner to substitute with."
>>42653016Oh.Ohhhhhh.Oh man, this will be good.>>42652880>"Become me, throw everything in the vest at this guy from above." Begin gathering chakra to brace for the explosion.
>>42652880Do we know what monkeybro can do? besides copy appearances I mean. If he's any good in a fight he should suit up and we can tag team the fucker
>>42652880>Write-in a planAttack from two directions at once, with Sarujizu copying us.
>>42653016Tell me about the various jutsu
>>42653016go with>>42652939 thenBut instead of Sarujizo attacking only in melee use also his own techs to confuse kabuto
>>42652880>>42653041Seconding this, but tell him to detonate with fire. Actually, just have him throw the vest at Kabuto and hit it with a fire jutsu.
>>42652880have him turn into us so we can bombard kabuto with literally twice as much ordinance as we normally carry.
Hmm would have preferred the See no Evil monkey to stop Tsunade seeing blood. Use a smoke bomb, then have the monkey transform into us, give him lots of explosive Kunai, and tell him to dash around and throw them to get Kabuto to move into a specific location. We transform into monkey and, whilst he throws the explosive kunai, we focus our release into a tight beam to pierce Kabuto once he gets in our aimed area.
>>42652880"I need backup. Copy me and help me take this guy down, we'll try to keep him confused as to who's who. I've got a bunch of bombs you can use if you need to."
>>42653056>>42653045We're down a leg. Our mobility is shot incredibly bad.
>>42652969We are way too low on strength for that, at least competitively. I'd go for specialized explosives, especially those that focus on reducing the enemy's mobility.
>>42653088Hop around using our impact release to propel us forward faster.
>>42653088And given how Kabuto attacks we're not going to get use of that leg back in the middle of the fight. He severed the nerve, without a healer (wink wink, Tsunade) that leg isn't getting back to normal any time soon.
>>42652880Reminder we could have gotten a real pimp summon.
>>42653101On one leg?
>>42653114I prefer my master of disguise monkey thank you very much
>>42653134That's why we're hopping.
The only other thing I can think about is getting him to transform into Sasori, and to tell Orochimaru to stop messing around.
>>42653134>>42653149Or we put the impact release through the useless foot.
>>42653149This is stupid, you realize? Much dumber than having Sarujizu throw our vest and explosives therein at the guy and hitting it with a fire jutsu?
>>42653155I think he has to have seen the person to transform into them. Otherwise he'd be really great for scouting. "Sarujizo, transform into any people within a kilometer of here" and stuff like that.
>>42653155Sarujizo hasn't seen SasoriSo you guys want him to copy you, now is it>Double team Kabuto>Sarujizo goes in while you provide support>Both of you just unload your explosives on him
>>42653177Oh, I don't want to do it. I was just explaining the logic. I'm a different anon from the one who proposed it.
>>42653170Ah, yes, and have it go flying since we have no control over it.>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on him.
>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on him
>>42653188>Double team KabutoBecause explosives just haven't worked.
>>42653188>Double team Kabuto
>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on himBOOM MOTHERFUCKER!!!
>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on you.We sparky sparky boom man.
>>42653178I thought he could work off people we'd seen. Anyway>>42653188>Sarujizo goes in while you provide supportI'd say we tie Kabuto hands up with the rope part of our Kyoketsu-shoge, whilst Monkey-Kon runs around him planting tags on him.
>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on himlets keep our gimp leg the fuck outta melee.
>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on himIf fucker gets close blow him away with Vacuum Wave or shattershot and then continue with the explosives
>>42653232>>42653240>>42653244>>42653250This is the 'go into melee' option.
>>42653188>>Both of you just unload your explosives on himLeg is busted guys.
>>42653188>Sarujizo goes in while you provide support
>>42653188>Both of you just unload your explosives on himstay away from his magic fingers unless you wan to loose feeling in more limbs
>>42653312>stay away from his magic fingers unless you wan to loose feeling in more limbsThank god we are not a girl right now
>>42653361>The guy's got magic cards.>And magic hands.
>>42653390>>42653361KILL THE MAGIC MAN BEFORE HE MAKES US FEEL LIKE A GIRL WITH HIS MAGIC FINGERS
>>42653276... um, it isn't though?
>>42653263Monkey-Kon is probably stronger than we are though, meaning he'd be better with the KS than us.
>>42653276I know.>>42653279And he's already too fast for the explosives.
>>42653205>>42653227>>42653248>>42653249>>42653267>>42653269>>42653279"Transform into me and unload all your explosives on him." you tell Sarujizo."Can do, kid." Sarujizo puts on a mask and takes your form.The two of you start pelting the field with explosives, and Kabuto can barely manage to dodge them. He weaves in between several explosions before he starts grabbing your kunai out of the air and sending them back, causing more explosions. After he does this a few times, there is far too much smoke to see anything. You hear another explosion and then a puff of smoke indicating that Sarujizo has disappeared. From the smoke emerges Kabuto, burned all over his body."You just can't stop it with those, can you Kon?" he pants. You see his wounds start to heal themselves. "It's a good thing I can use my chakra to regenerate, or I'd be in a bad spot. I'm almost totally drained as it is."Kabuto starts to retreat. "But you're not exactly in a good position either, I'm afraid."From across the field, you hear the sickening sound of metal in flesh.>A.Look what happened>B.Stay on KabutoC.Fall back to the rest of the groupD.Other
>>42653459Yeah but we're injured, so we can't dash around him planting the explosives easily.
>>42653485>B.Stay on Kabuto
>>42653485>>B.Stay on Kabuto
>>42653464>And he's already too fast for the explosivesI'm surprised people voted for explosions when the last one very nearly backfired on us in a big way.I also like how our kekkei genkai's effectiveness is basically determined by the narrative rather than any actual rules.
>>42653485>D. Giant Shattershot. Put a good 2/3 of our chakra into the blast.Then.>A.
>>42653485>C.Fall back to the rest of the groupSo how do you do that anyway? Is it something that only you can do? Or can anyone learn it?
>>42653485>C.Fall back to the rest of the group
>>42653485>B.Stay on KabutoWe can worry about it after we take down Kabuto.For all we know it's a False Sound.
>>42653485>B.Stay on Kabuto"I protect people for a living, Kabuto. I'm supposed to be in a bad spot."
>>42653485C.Fall back to the rest of the groupIsn't Shizune a medical Ninja? She should have healed up her own injuries by now.
>>42653485Oh shitSmoke bomb then>A.Look what happenedIf shit went down south for us then>C.Fall back to the rest of the groupIf Sarutobi/Tsunade/etc are doing okay then>B.Stay on KabutoGet him with a sneak attack on the smoke or summon monkeys again
>>42653485>D.Other"Sarujizo, check that sound. I'll keep on Kabuto."
>>42653568>another explosion and then a puff of smoke indicating that Sarujizo has disappeared
>>42653568Monkeys already gone m8
>>42653485>C.Fall back to the rest of the groupDid everyone forget the gimp leg? If we follow, we're gonna get fucked. Let's get Shizune to fix it first
>>42653568Sarujizo got blown up/unsummoned
>>42653578>>42653581>>42653588Yeah, I missed that. Shit.
>>42653485>>42653516Second. Seriously why haven't we hit him with this yet? What are we waiting for?
>>42653585If Kabuto's actually making to run, then I'd change my vote >>42653542 to falling back, albeit cautiously.
So what sort of Bad End have we gotten? Third dead?Tsunade dead?Konohamaru dead?Some combination of those?
>>42653608cuz then we would be a dead weight later?Orochimaru is still out there m8 and being made a makeshift hostage is no good
>>42653643I'm guessing Sarutobi stabbed. Maybe not dead, but in a bad spot. He was the only one anywhere near someone with sharp metal objects that isn't on our side, so he seems likely.
Rolled 1 (1d4)>>42653643Lets see based on your options.
>>42653671>>42653643Fuck you both for killing the third
>>42653687Should have added Shizune to give an irrelevant option, sorry.
>>42653687Welp at least we already got monkeysWho the fuck am i kidding i don't want that old fuck to die
>>42653519>>42653531>>42653560>>42653566>>42653585>>42653623https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wknP5Mxmuzw&index=56&list=PL3AC39BCAE0A97F85You want to pursue Kabuto, but with this leg you wouldn't get very far. Shizune can probably heal you.You fall back to the rest of the group to find them looking on in horror.You look over to see that Sarutobi Sensei has been run clean through with a sword that Orochimaru has produced from his throat. As your teacher wretches up blood, Orochimaru mocks him."What were you thinking, fighting me at your age, Sensei?" he says perfectly clearly despite the sword sticking out of his mouth. "Trying to be a hero? Live up to your title as Hokage? You were always too naive, Sensei."Through the pain, the Third responds. "You're right, Orochimaru. I was naive. Not killing you when I had the chance was my second greatest mistake as Hokage. But even so, I tried my best to protect future generations of the village! Those who would carry on after me! My pupils, Jiraiya, Tsunade, and you, Orochimaru. My student Kon, and my grandson. And every single person in the village! That is the Will of Fire! Giving everything I have to protect the village and the next generation, so that an even greater Hokage may take my place!"At that moment, Konohamaru uses all the chakra he had been building up this whole time. Every last bit that he can force out goes into his technique. "Summoning Jutsu!" From the smoke appears the Monkey King, Enma. He catches the now unconscious Konohamaru before he hits the ground.Even as Orochimaru's sword continues to cut up his insides, your teacher continues. "So that though I may die, the village will stand strong forever! That is why you could never succeed me! You never understood that! It is not mastery of every jutsu that makes you a great ninja! It is to endure hardship protecting those that are precious to you!">Continued

>>42653861Also the anger from seeing your grandfather being murdered in front of you is also some pretty damn good fuel, too.
Remember guys. One day Ochimaru is going to get away scott free with all of this.
>>42653870Also when you're not saving anything to fight after you're done summoning.Konohamaru may have summoned Enma first, but he's still not ready to use what he's learned. Not even close.
>>42653913or we ourselves could murder every single molecule of his fucking body with a ninja atom bomb
>>42653913Fuck that. We're sending him to the fucking moon. Let HIM deal with all the angry moon men.
>>42653917at least he learnedif he survives today, he'll be a fucking beast
>>42653933Enma CAN extend a really long ways... we could conceivably power pole Orochimaru's ass straight to the fucking moon.
>>42653795"Enough of your prattling, old man! Always with your meaningless talk of villages!" Orochimaru shouts as he removes his sword from Sarutobi Sensei's body. "I don't care about any of that! You've long overstayed your welcome! Just die already!"He makes several more slashes all over the Third's body, and the the former Hokage falls motionless to the ground."Sarutobi!" Enma shouts, as he rushes over to your teacher's body. Enma grabs him and returns to Konohamaru and Tsunade's side.Tsunade stands up and bites her thumb, making some hand seals. Orochimaru calls Kabuto to his side to do the same. "Summoning Jutsu!"In two giant puffs of smoke, appear a giant slug and a giant snake. They face each other down."Enma." Tsunade calls. "Adamantine Staff Transformation.""Right." Enma responds. He transforms into a large staff and flies into Tsunade's hands,"It ends here, Orochimaru!" Tsunade calls. "For the sake of the village, I will stop you!">A.Try to assist>B.Hang back>C.Say something>D.Other

>>42654000>Shizune is right thereShe can heal him right?
>>42654012Silly anon. You should know by now that Kon's not allowed to be relevant to the plot.
>>42653952>Rush to sarutobi senseiIf he's gone we sure as fuck gonna impact release defibrillator him

>>42654031When the fuck was kon not useful?Remember the fact that neji is still alive after Shukaku? that was kon
>>42653952Shizune cant walk, Sarutobi might be dead. get one of them to the other and see if shizune can do anything for him.
>>42654037>>42654085The release...That breaks bones and makes jelly out of flesh...What could go wrong!
>>42654095or we summon a monkey that can do it for usCuz one of our legs is fucked remember?
>>42654086Also, as Laze said, Kon is to be shaped by stuff in Part 1 and then actually make a difference on plot stuff in Part 2.
>>42654110Defibrillator. Manual heart pumping.
>>42654037> impact release defibrillatorI never even though of this, let's just use our impact release and become the best medical ninja ever, send tremors in them to detect inside their body like x-Ray
>>42654132And since the tremors are also chakra, we can detect things like curses and abnormalities in their chakra flow.
>>42654110It's called chakra control, think of it like the tree walking, too much might shatter it but a delicate touch and you can send just strong enough tremors to pump the heart
>>42653952>D.OtherCrawl over to Sarutobi, stabilize him as best we can. We have to know at least basic first aid.
>>42654159And we're amazing at Chakra control.
>>42654159and our charka control is I'm pretty fucking good-tier
>>42654132I'm pretty sure there's already a medical diagnostic jutsu that already does exactly this, if there isn't, then I guess Tsunade isn't the medical genius everyone thought she was
>>42654159>>42654110also>what could go wrongWell if his heart has already stopped not much. You can't really make a dead guy worse.
>>42654170We can do better with our Will of FireWhat's our will of fire anyway?
>>42654197We don't have one, Mainly because it's a cheap gimmick.
>>42654191This is a fair point. I'll go along with it.Who knows, maybe keeping Sarutobi sensei on manual life support throughout the rest of the day despite having been wounded and exhausted will even convince Tsunade to get the stick out of her ass.
>>42654188Perhaps, I don't explicitly recall any particular jutsu that does so, so I figured it was worth a shot.
>>42654197I don't think it's been formally put into words, but from how we've acted so far I think a good summary would be "If someone is willing to die for something, then it matters."
>>42654197to set things on fire with explosives?I seriously don't get why people are suddenly talking about switching from bomberman to doctor ninja. we already have a theme people can we please stick to it?
>>42654197>"We protect what those who went ahead of us cherished, so those that come after will have a future. "Fits the dead parents and constantly being bait fairly well, I think.
>>42654204We're still from the leaf m8We have the will of fireWe have double will of fire just cuz Sarutobi is out master
>>42654159Or we could do regular chest compressions. That's also an option that wouldn't risk exploding his heart. Not everything has to be a jutsu.
>>42654224Because "bomberman" shouldn't be the limitations of our skillset, and in fact sticking to that is likely to hinder Kon's development as a fighter.

"Maybe if I can just keep him holding on until Lady Tsunade is finished..."At that, the Third manages to speak. "Stop." he groans. He points a finger to Konohamaru. "Take care of Konohamaru. He's lost a lot of chakra."Shizune is unable to refuse, and starts treating Konohamaru instead. You try to see what you can do with your release, using it like a defibrillator to keep his heart going, but it doesn't help for long. You haven't practiced this, and you're not sure if you're causing more harm than good.By the time the fight has wound down, you're sure he is about to slip away. Tsunade staggers over, exhausted."They got away." she pants.>A.Hurry up and try to heal Sensei>B.How could you let that happen?>C.So I guess you've come around>D.Other
>>42654229So "Honor your dead" while making sure that no one dies around you before their time while making you the target of damage?

>>42654252>>A.Hurry up and try to heal Sensei
>>42654244If you're doing it right chest compressions can and often do break ribs, and it's extremely tiring to do for extended periods of time.Source: I've actually been trained to do it, and have had to do it in practice.
>>42654252>A.Hurry up and try to heal SenseiCan't imagine passive bitching or active bitching being more important at the moment.

>>42654285Me too. But broken ribs are less of a problem than "exploded heart". And using a constant flow of chakra would be pretty tiring, too.
>>42654252>D. "I've tried to keep him going, but I don't know what I'm doing. Please...help." Look up like the scared teenager we are trying not to lose the first true idol and father figure we've had in a long time (uncle is nice, but can't count as an idol because he doesn't really approve of us being ninja)
>>42654252>A.Hurry up and try to heal Sensei"I've tried to keep his heart going the only way I can think of, but I've never done this before."
>>42654299>>42654315How about no.
>>42654299More in character than "You fucking bitch, nothing personell Tsunade but I'll cut you if you don't heal him"So this.
>>42654263>while making you the target of damageNot as much. Just being willing to if that's what's necessary, it's not like Kon'd go out of his way to put himself at greater risk.

You can see wrinkles forming on her skin for some reason. "I've used too much chakra. If I wasn't so tired, maybe I could do it."Sarutobi Sensei manages to speak again. "It's okay, Tsunade.

I'm guessing if he does die, Kon would blame Tsunade for it, at least for a while. He'd rationalize that this wouldn't have happened if she had just gone with them in the first place, or hadn't drugged Sarutobi before hand.
>>42654450This. With a brave (if teary) smile at the end as per >>42654483
>>42654400Give her our chakra if that's possible
>>42654549I'd go more with him blaming himself, as he wasn't strong enough to help, or to force Tsunade to change her mind.
>>42654400Super charge Tsunade with a charge up Jutsu!Like imbuing our weapons or limbs. We just zap zap!Be a great support jutsu.
>>42654583Except Tsunade actively poisoned Sarutobi. I think the real problem here is that Sarutobi didn't even get to seal up Orochi either, so he's still a massive threat, and our mentor died for nothing.
>>42654427See if it is possible, even if we might lose conscience
>>42654583I'd go with blaming himself personally.
>>42654400>C.Just cry a lotGrab Tsunade and hold onto her like an emotional life raft while we cry.
>>42654583I'm gonna say one part blaming himself, one part blaming her. Though he'd keep it to himself until the Mission is finished at least. Itachi can still be saved.
>>42654594>Be a great support jutsu.Kon's chakra control is really good, so we could actually become a healing ninja.>>42654638Seconding.
>>42654635Kek, voting for this. It works out for us, in a way, becuase we can reinforce our point about heroism
>>42654638With maybe a bit of passive aggression until they got back, too. "Are you going to deny a dying man's last wish?"
>>42654638I imagine he'd wouldn't say it yet, but would try and take Konohamaru back on his own. And be all "When he wakes up he's gonna blame you, because I know I do."
>>42654686Or we could NOT be a fucking cunt.Not being a cunt sounds good.I'm gonna go with not being a cunt.
We are going to become the healing specialist for our team. It ties in well with our experience at knocking others the fuck away and primarily using traps.
>>42654734I tend to agree, but lately I feel like we've been in the minority.
>>42654686OH SHIT. Konohamaru.We better hug him hard while he cry
>>42654400>>A.You can't die Sensei"That sounds like quitters talk. None of that. We've got work to do."OOC, I just realised; if he dies, that means we're the ranking ninja on this mission until Tsunade gets reinstated. If she does.We're going to have to do all the paperwork....HE CANT DIE. IT MUST NOT BE ALLOWED.>>42654549And rightly so. I never liked that she got off scot free for her bullshit in this arc in canon.
>>42654686This anon >>42654734is right. I don't know why you insist on being such a massive fucking cunt. We know Tsunade is going to be kicking herself, he was her teacher too. Do you know no empathy? Do you know how to play a character consistantly?
>>42654751He knocked himself the fuck out, but sure. Whenever he comes to.
>>42654734Seconding no bitch Kon. There's a dead guy, act with some solemnity.
>>42654734Good PlanWe literally just brought her around. We do NOT want to make this whole trip meaningless by driving her further away with guilt
>>42654747In fairness to the 'being a cunt' crowd, our Sensei is literally dying in front of us, in large part due to the actions of Tsunade. We don't know much of their earlier history.
>>42654734Being upset and saying some shit while in that state of mind would be understandable though. Although we won't say anything while someone's life is still on the line.
>>42654744Also 'cause our team needs a healer. Plus this trauma could fuel our training.And if we need to assassinate someone, we can use wind jutsu to put a slowly expanding wind ball into someone's veins.>>42654747I'm a third guy who doesn't want to be a cunt but also wouldn't mind being mad at Tsunade or himself.Kon's gonna be angry at someone. For a little bit, not his whole life or anything.
>>42654450"You can't die, Sensei." you say as the tears begin to roll down your face."Kon." he says. "As long as the Will of Fire remains in you, I will never die. Remember that."You try and force a smile through your tears. “We protect what those who went ahead of us cherished, so those that come after will have a future. If anyone asks... that's what I'll tell them you taught me.""That is good." your teacher mutters. "I know you will protect the village. One more thing. Please, take care of Konohamaru."With that, the Third Hokage closes his eyes for the last time.Tsunade stops her jutsu and stands up. She walks a bit away and stands there for a while, facing away from you.>A.This is your fault>B.Are you going to return to the village?>C.Stay silent>D.Other
>>42654734>>42654762We're a 13 year old who's mentor got murdered, cause some doctor wouldn't go and heal a fucking patient, so she poisoned someone else.You have to consider what Kon actually knows, which isn't that Tsunade was planning to die, it's that she poisoned his Master, and now he's dead.
>>42654762She thought poisoning him when she knew orochimaru was around was a good idea, because she's a selfish drunk that didnt care, she probably does now but it doesnt stop her from being a terrible terrible person
>>42654804>B.Are you going to return to the village?>C.Stay silent
>>42654734i am with you but i will go with a bit passive aggressive.Carry both bodies, say "mission failed" and go home
>>42654780>>42654786Kon is one of the most emotionally mature 13 year olds in the setting, and is even better put-together than a lot of older ninja. Quit trying to make him into a little shit. He's not.

>>42654804>D.Other"Heal my leg and then let's go. We've wasted enough time already. I'll carry Konohamaru."

>>42654804>D. Shizune Is Konohamaru going to recover? I need to get going soon. Sensei's body needs be returned to the village, and I need to report his failure. Perhaps I'll make it in time for them to find someone to save Itachi.

>>42654804>B.Are you going to return to the village?Our eyes might say 'this is your fault' though. Can't be helped.
>>42654804>D.OtherHold out one of the standard-issue scrolls all chunin get in their basic kit.“... he deserves to be taken home, but I don't know the technique very well. Can either of you help me?”
>>42654793Fuck that. We use that force neutralization technique anons were talking about earlier, turn it into a seal and apply it to someone's heart.>Impact Style: Cardiac Arrest Seal!Alternatively induce a heart attack with punch.>>42654804>D. Stare at him for a while, offer a small prayer, then say, "We should...do something. We need to bring his body back to the village. And Konohamaru shouldn't see him like this."
>>42654804>A.This is your fault
I would rather we don't become the dedicated medic. Should we learn a medical jutsu or two? Sure. Every competent ninja should know SOME kind of effective first aid but our role has always been to switch between traps/support and total explosive offense. we are a great mid range fighter and shouldn't dedicate ourselves to being the medic when we could be laying traps and leading squads of enemies into the BOOM zone.
>>42654804>B.Are you going to return to the village?We're devastated, and we don't have to be happy about it, but I don't think we're in a headspace that would let us fuck the mission just to be bitter.If she refuses, then we can flip our shit.
>>42654851This.It'll have the most emotional impact on her and we arent directly being a cunt
>>42654804>D.Other"You're returning to the village."
>>42654849ThisBut put up as as our failure instead of hisor this>>42654856to shizune
>>42654827'Most mature' doesn't mean he is completly mature yet, as he's still 13. He'll at least have the sense to keep it to himself.
>>42654804>>C.Stay silent>D. Watch herShe knows that this is largely her doing. Silent condemnation is more effective than anything we could say.So stare. Don't talk. Don't even blink.>>42654870Agreed.
>>42654870Our role is trying to do things that Naruto does in canon and just failing completely:^)>>42654851this
>>42654804>>42654851I'll go with this, although maybe ask if Shizune knows how to summon a container for the body.
I'll fucking laugh if in answer to our childish bitching she says he died cause we fucked with his heart using an untested technique.
>>42654786There's a difference between losing your shit at someone, and the kind of passove-aggressive, catty cuntery that keeps getting suggested. Catty cuntery is deliberate, and requires a relatively calm state of mind.
>>42654804Remember people, we're the ranking survivor here and Kon knows it. This still isn't the time to be a bitter little shit, and Kon knows it. This is the time for making sure our sensei didn't die for nothing, and to make good on our last words to him.Get your fucking shit straight.
>>42654927Man, you made me giggle you fuck
>>42654927So would i, mainly because thats dumb and it'd still be her fault
>>42654851I can get behind this, no way she's not taking his body back after this anyway
>>42654870But with our traps we can quickly and easily set up a 'Do not cross' area in which we can administer mid-battle first aid. I say we become a variety of things. Can someone give me that 'Specialization is for Samurai' quote? Because we can become the ultimate support ninja.
>>42654927And if she hadn't poisoned him, maybe he wouldn't have had to.>>42654935Uh I think Shizune is technically a Jonin, not to mention whatever Tsunade's rank was whenever she left.But yeah, I imagine the situation is similar to Shikamaru's bitch-tears when he failed to bring back Sasuke.
>>42654851>leaving our sensei's body behind>being a bitter little shit when we should be completing the mission he left usYeah, grade-a roleplaying asshole.
>>42654982They abandoned the village years ago. They have no rank.
>>42654982They aren't a part of the village. They have no rank.Technically, they're civilians.
>>42654982>Uh I think Shizune is technically a Jonin, not to mention whatever Tsunade's rank was whenever she left.Yes, but they are also not Leaf ninja anymore, or so they claim. So we have rank.
>>42654995Grade A lack of empathy anon
>>42654804>>A.This is your fault
>>42655032What "lack of empathy"? Voting to be a bitter little shit to someone who's already blaming themselves and leave our sensei's body in a field is where the "lack of empathy" is.Fuck, do you even know what the word "empathy" means?
>>42654804>D. "Can you help me...prepare his body? I need to bring it back to the village.">B. "Are you coming with?"
>>42655059Grade A justification asshole
>>42654804>>42655083This. Just kind of empty and emotionally drained after sobbing like that, but still getting the job done in a normal fucking way.
"Shizune, do you know how to seal objects in scrolls?" you ask. "We need to take Sensei back to the village."Shizune pulls out a scroll and starts work on sealing the Third's body into it. Meanwhile, you go over to Konohamaru, still unconscious, and carry him.You call over to Tsunade. "Are you coming back to the village?"Tsunade is silent for a while. The ground in front of her is wet, so she must have been crying, but her eyes are dry when she turns to you."Yes." she responds. "I'm responsible for Sensei's death. The only way I could dream of making it up to him is to follow his will. I will heal this Itachi, and he will become a great Hokage."You take the scroll from Shizune once she's finished, and all of you start to head out. Soon, Konohamaru wakes up on your back."Bro?" he asks, still in a daze. "What happened? Is grandpa okay?">A.Tell him we won the fight>B.Tell him what happened>C.Don't answer>D.Other

You make sure to put emphasis on Sarutobi Sensei's words, so Konohamaru doesn't take it quite as hard.Konohamaru doesn't say anything. He just grips onto your jacket tighter and cries into it. The rest of the trip back to the village is done in almost complete silence. When you do arrive, the mood is solemn, as Shizune sent word ahead.The day after you return, the Third's funeral is held. The entire village is there.You stand next to Konohamaru in the pouring rain."Why?" Konohamaru asks. He isn't crying, but you suspect that's just because he's all cried out. "Why do people have to die? Even when they bring so many other people happiness?">A.I don't know>B.To protect those people>C.Don't answer>D.Other
Can we at some point have the mask monkey reverse summon us to the monkey place, if for no other reason but to talk to Enmu about sensei a bit, be told about stories and whatnotThat could also be where our time skip training takes place
>>42655470>>B.To protect those people
>>42655470>B.To protect those people
>>42655470>A.I don't know
>>42655397This belongs on a dildo.Because the message keeps fucking me.>>42655470>"Because there are people out there who only care about their own happiness. And they don't care how many other people get hurt for it. We fight, and we die, so that those we care about can be happier. Because we aren't like them, and we will never be them."
>>42655397Why, anon, why?
>>42655470>B.To protect those peopleWe protect what those who went ahead of us cherished, so those that come after will have a future
>>42655470>B.To protect those people>"And the things they care about. When we're gone, all that's left is the memories we give to those we leave behind. The happy memories the entire village has of Sarutobi is exactly what he'd want."
>>42655490Let's do that then, it seems like we could gain a lot from it both mentally and technique-wise. Maybe bring Konohamaru as well, so he can do some much needed grief-induced training.
>>42655470>B.To protect those people"Sarutobi sensei lived his life to protect others, and he saw that life through to the end. That was the duty he took upon himself as Hokage.""When you're old enough, you'll do a fine job protecting the happiness he cherished. I know it."
>>42655551>Grampa Enma, can you tell me another story about Sarutobi Sensei?
>>42655470Fuck, go with this guy, he knows how to put things into words. >>42655505
>>42655430Happiness is a duty, owed to the self.>>42655470>>B.To protect those peopleTo protect their memories, their ideals, their goals and dreams. To pave the way to hope for a future without need for it."
>>42655564this is good too
>>42655470>B.To protect those peopleThe need of the many out weight the need of the few.
>>42655625Get outta here, Spock.
>>42655505This, but when he asks, 'What's the point then,' Add in >>42655608 'Because of the hope that some day, we won't have to fight. Because there won't be people trying so hard to make themselves happy, and hurting other people because of it.'
>>42653671>>42653643Hey! The dice were right!
>>42655682Eat a big fat sack of dicks.
>>42655682I'm so fucking mad right now you don't even know...
"Because there are people out there who only care about their own happiness." you answer. "And they don't care how many other people get hurt for it. We fight, and we die, so that those we care about can be happier. Because we aren't like them, and we will never be them."You calm down a bit. "Sarutobi sensei lived his life to protect others, and he saw that life through to the end. That was the duty he took upon himself as Hokage."You force another smile. "When you're old enough, you'll do a fine job protecting the happiness he cherished. I know it."Konohamaru looks up, resolve in his eyes. "Yeah, I will."As the funeral ends, the rain stops and the clouds give way. The sun begins to shine brightly. Shining on a hopeful future.>End of Chapter 22That's the end of happenings for a bit, I hope you all are ready for some downtimeRunning again tomorrowTwitter is @LazeQM
>>42655768So, now is when we dedicate ourselves to killing Orochimaru, right? Like, not obsessively, but I can see Kon focusing on learning jutsu that will make him better able to shut down Orochimaru's tricks.
>>42655768So does Tsunade have ANY respect for Kon?How pissed is the village that the Hokage died, but everyone else lived?How do most of our friends/teammates feel about it?Did we get any closer to being at a level where we'd matter in a fight like the one we were just in, or has Kon stagnated?
>>42655768Thanks for running LazeQuick questionWould it be possible for the Third to survive this arc had we done something different?
>>42655768Sarutobi died, Kon's having to hide his pain about the death, and my feels have been ruined.All in all, a great thread. Thanks for running, Laze.
>>42655768We cant save him yeah?Just like garaa and fuuThanks for running
>>42655768>>42655807No, now is when we dedicate ourselves to being the best ninja we can be, so we won't feel so fucking helpless. We gonna go to Tsunade, learn what we can, then one day up and fucking disappear to Monkey Land to start learning shit from them.
>>42655768So, did we actually help at all by keeping Sarutobi's heart pumping? Not that I regret suggesting it.
>>42655768>I hope you all are ready for some downtimeHopefully real downtime, and not HumbleStoryteller style downtime.
>>42655810I imagine Tsunade doesn't have any respect for Kon, but not disrespect, either. More that she's too busy feeling guilty to even look us in the eye. Though I think this is a good chance to bond with her over shared guilt, get a relationship going there.
I can see Tenten coming to check on Kon while he's sitting in front of Hiruzen's grave, only to have him completely open up.Sweet catharsis.
>>42655810YesThey're more sad than pissedThey're all sad of course, Sarutobi was like the village's grandpaYou're a bit better, but the Sannin are just too high tier. You gave Kabuto a run for his money though, he doesn't want to face you head on again
>>42655953Anything quantifiable, or is it mostly just a reputation for being a tough little fuck?
>>42655953Have we piqued Orochimaru's interest yet?
>>42655953We got any gains in this thread?
>>42655953> Kabuto a run for his moneyAtleast that's something
>>42655953>You gave Kabuto a run for his money though, he doesn't want to face you head on again
>>42655819If you guys had insisted on doing something crazy, maybe he wouldn't have died, but that likely would have been bad news for someone elseSo yeah, this was meant to be a plot related death, it's meant for you and Konohamaru to grow from it>>42655858He was able to get a few more last words in, though you were breaking his ribs
>>42655950... Yep, now I want this.
>>42655953Considering Kabuto can easily take down a squad of ANBU, that's pretty goddamn impressive.
>>42655987You do have a bit of a rep going on, especially after your match with Lee>>42655989He is, as with all kekkei genkai. He doesn't believe for a second that he can turn you, though>>42655993No
>>42655989>>42655993My guess is yes to the first, no to the second.Gains are a rarity, and Orochimaru probably heard from Kabuto that we fucked him up pretty good. Not that we won, just that we did a great job not losing and have a kekkei genkai of some kind.
>>42656009There's really no way to keep a heart pumping from the outside that won't break ribs, though, so I'm counting that as a net neutral. Kind of an accomplishment, really, to do it with Impact chakra. That takes control. I'd feel real good about that, if he hadn't died.
>>42656021Wait, he can already do that at this point?Damn, we're actually pretty good.
>>42656009>breaking his ribsThe reason Sarutobi want to die is that so we wont break his ribs moreaside from joke, can we develop this technique from tsunade or other medical?
>>42656042He did it when he went into Sasuke's room. It was the first confirmation any of the Jonin had Kabuto was a traitor, when he broke into Sasuke's recovery room after Kakashi had sealed the curse mark. Kakashi had put a large squad of Anbu on guard duty there. Kabuto killed them all.
>>42656042Most enemies he faces don't cause nearly as much widespread damage, so he can take them down at his own paceHe really doesn't like fighting you
>>42656033>NoSee I find that a little silly, and here's why. We just fought a Jonin tier opponent solo and held our own and made extensive use of our release after the bit of training we did last time.There's quite a lot of effort that Kon has put in with nothing really to show for it but a dead sensei and loads of emotional baggage.
>>42656043You could, it'd take a lot of training to get right though>>42656077Gains are mostly done over time, not every big fight is gonna get you gains. You have plenty of time to improve, no need to try and wring gains out of every single thread
>>42655950That would actually be a really nice scene.>>42656077I was under the impression that it's easier to get better initially, but harder to keep improving at the same rate. The stat system is effectively logarithmic. If we made big gains every thread we'd be godlike in no time.
>>42656075I imagine anything besides Jonin Caliber(if not rank) Nin would not like fighting us. We can easily hit a lot of people or hammer one with impunity at a variety of ranges.
>>42656065Ah, okay, thank you for telling me. I should really rewatch the first half of the anime again just so I remember all of this shit.
>>42656111>Defibilator techique is a goLaze...do we have soldier's pill?
>>42656163Not a defibrillator. Those are meant to cure fibrillation, irregular heartbeats. This is more like an artificial heart pump, keep the blood flowing even after the heart stops.
>>42655625Of all the souls I've encountered in my travels, his was the most... human.
>>42656163Someone brought that up before, their use/disuse in the series itself is so inconsistent, like Kiba uses it and gets his shit stomped anyway, then they battle for days without them anyway later, and the supposed side effects are completely ignored anywayI figured we could just say you guys are using them when you're on long missions that need them, and don't use them otherwiseI don't want to deal with that shit
>>42656255So laze, right now who would be the toughest, yet actually slightly winnable, character for Kon to fight now?
Would focusing our release into a point be lightning tier piercing or maybe better with time? Can our release be made into force fields?Also anyone else want a chakra war hammer with a pick end? I don't know how big. Either over sized as fuck for anime reasons, or small and utilitarian. Like no bigger then a hammer for carpentry.
>>42656642Be interesting to channel the release into specially made throwing weapons, so they can explode on impact.I think that would fit Kon's style more.
>>42656636Hmm. That's tough. I'm not really sure. You'd pretty much have a good shot at beating anyone short of Jonin tier though.>>42656642YesWith a ton of practice, maybe you can jerry-rig something like a force field
>>42656752Could Kon eventually learn both Chidori and Rasengan?
>>42656733We armstrong now?
>>42656811Neither of those moves are impossible for you to learn, as long as you actually have someone to teach them to youBut Chidori is a pretty useless move without dojutsu
>>42656848Alright.Just wondering.And would it be possible for Kon to do stuff like Whitebeard from One Piece?
>>42656733Chakra metal bolos. Charge that fucker up and let it fly. Impact bb's and piercing senbon. Each marble sized projectile will hit like it was a semi truck, and our senbon could take out a target on the other side of a wall without making a noise.
>>42656889Potentially. That would require plenty of gitting gud, though
>>42656922Kon will git gud.
>>42656895Holy shot. Impact bolo. You would turn their legs to goo.
>>42656848Speaking of teachers, would King Enma be capable of teaching Kon how Hiruzen used to fight?
>>42656927There had best be a moment where we have an 80s training montage with Eye of the Tiger playing over it.
>>42656922So, Laze, Kon later on years down the line develops a technique that allows him to convert all kinetic force that impacts him into chakra without hampering his movement at all. This technique eats up so much chakra the only way to feasibly sustain it long enough to actually get hit is sage mode. Then he fights pain while in Sage Mode, and Pain uses an almighty push while Kon's got his 'convert force into chakra' thing happening. What happens?
>>42656979How did he used to?
>>42656895>>42656939>not just going all the way and having a meteor hammer
>>42656642>>42656733>>42656752We could use a weighted hammer head at the end of our shuge instead of a dager or sickle with chakra conductive chain instead of a silk rope, the chain could even be spiked to help it grip weapons and limbs, we could channel impact chakra into the hammer head to do massive damage, or lighting chakra down the chain to stun pr shock pir opponents. We should also see about trainng under Tsunade, even if we don't much like her attitude or chakra control would be perfect for medical techniques as well as her strength technique, we could train along side Tenten whom idolizes Tsunade as well.
>>42656984>Eye of the Tiger>not Push It To The Limit
>>42657009System errorIf that happens, I'll figure something out
>>42656895We could charge up a handful of the marbles and basically make kinetic explosions. Just magnify the force into a concentrated area. Blow shit up without explosives.
>>42657040>We could use a weighted hammer head at the end of our shuge instead of a dager or sickleYou don't throw the dagger end of a kyoketsu-shoge.You throw the end with the weight on it.The dagger end stays firmly in your hand and is used for shanking things.
>>42657052>inb4 Pain retreats because quite frankly he doesn't want to find out either.
>>42657052>Almighty Push gets eaten by Kon's sage mode thingy>Burn all gained chakra into Shattershot as well as senjutsu>Pain and the side of the country he's in gets to fuck off into space>The angry moon men get even angrier that the rain is salty
>>42657095Ah well in that case do the same but switch the weight for the hammer instead.
>>42657011Plan achieved: summon Monkey King, receive instruction on how to replace the God of Shinobi.
>>42656752>Hmm. That's tough. I'm not really sure. You'd pretty much have a good shot at beating anyone short of Jonin tier though.What is a good example of Jonin tier though?They tend to vary wildly in ability from Kakashi to Anko to random scrubs.
>>42657152there's no difference between the hammer head and our current weight thingThey both serve the same purpose
>>42657022Like a fucking boss. He was fully versed in sealing techniques, genjutsu, taijutsu, and non-elemental ninjutsu like Shadow Clones and Shadow Clone Shuriken. And he did it on a modest stamina, by only putting as much chakra into a technique as was necessary to produce the full effect.PLUS he knew all the basic elements. The man was a fucking beast, and if Enma can help us get even partway there it'd be fucking worth it.
>>42657109>We direct all of the force at the moon because we need a fucking target>There is no moon anymore.>Space faggots can go eat a bag of dicks>Ten-tails refuses to be summoned anymore, like, "Fuck naw man, I'm good right here.">Pain looks at the lack of moon, then at us, then at the lack of moon, then back at us.>Sadly, the moon isn't us. But it could be, with new Old Spice Rinnegan.>Look up. What's this? It's the space where your enemy could be. Now it's the moon, and now it's diamonds.>Anything is possible when you have that Old Spice Rinnegan.So we're Bearglove then, right?
>>42657191That's the thing. It's only up until then that I can say you definitely have a shot. I can't think of any good examples myself, which is why I said that. I can't think of a named Jonin that you could beat, is what I mean.
>>42657095switch the Dagger for a Warhammer, they tend to have a spike so we can still shank people with it, and the warhammer would probably work better with our Impact release
>>42657191Well, Kabuto is a fairly capable Jonin-level enemy and we did reasonably well against him.
>>42657192Yeah but it's a flare thing. Though a hammer head has a larger surface area than just a wieght so should in theory allow more force to be transferred. You at least agree with the spiked chakra conductive chain though right?
>>42657283I think>>42657265has the right idea.chakra metal Warhammer connected by chakra metal Chain to Weight/spike
Guys, wait.I just realized.We've gor our Impact Release.And we plan to train with the monkeys.We should get NUNCHAKU!
>>42657283Before we do that shit, could we please try and learn one of the many ninjutsu techniques that would let Kon wrap light around himself?Invisibility+speed+chakra-enfused punches allows for some GitS-type shenanigans.
>>42657342I like the idea but, can we even use it? We don't have a high strength stat is my only worry.
>>42657381We can fix that with our training sperg.Personally, I think we should have Kon handle this by undergoing pretty stupid levels of training. He just disappears into some training area for about three weeks and noone knows where he is but his retainer as he pushes his body to the point where it could quite easily collapse on itself.Then when Tenten comes looking for us and tells us to give it a rest, that she knows how broken up we must be about it, and we end up limping home with her because our limbs are seriously about ready to give out from hypertension and we need medical help. Then she spends the next while nursing us back to health because she's been training under Tsunade.
>>42657353I'm 100 % behind nunchuk or tonfa. Preferably with spikes at the end
>>42657254Honestly, the Rank System works better for powerlevel dickwaving. Ex:SS Rank: Madera, Tobi, Pain, Minato, Hashirama S rank: Kage, Senin, Atasuki, trained Jinkarichi, Hanzo, ect.A Rank: The Seven Swordsman, Kakashi, Guy, Powerful Clan heads, Minor Village HeadsB Rank: Most JoninC Rank: ChuninD Rank: Normal GeninWe're Probably upper C at this point, with most of the kids we know mid/low C.
>>42657246Nope, Tenten prefers her man to smell like Timber.
>>42657461Ten/Ten would vote for.
>>42657353Well, they ARE more "ninja" than a warhammer.Plus if we get a pair with a slightly longer chain we can use it for binding.
>>42657353but hammers are the best for Ragdolling people just look at Halo(gravity Hammer), Dead Island(Tesla modded Sledgehammers launch zombies clear a rcoss town and over multistory buildings), or Vindictus(Fiona)>>42657381Warhammers aren't really that big most of the time(their like 3-4 lbs unless you go super fantasy types)
>>42657499Honestly, I would be all for a small carpenter hammer literally the size of the one from Shadow of Mordor.
>>42657353how about a mace?
>>42657532how about a mace then?
>>42657516shut the fuck up, jesus christ
>>42657516Warhammers are cool, but remember the setting.What you are doing is the European-focused version of that guy who wants to play a Samurai in a game set during the War of the Roses. Only worse, because as far as we know this world doesn't even HAVE a Europe.
>>42657574>>42657571>>42657556>>42657532>>42657516How about we all just stick with a fucking bo staff?It's not like the adamantine staff is a reality or something...
>>42657556>>42657556Same problem as the warhammer.Doesn't fit the setting.
>>42657584Warhammers fit all settings dude. Hammers are pretty much a universal tool.
>>42657623What do you mean stick with, we haven't ever used one.
>>42657623>only mastering one weaponI figured studying the bo would be a given as part of our monkey training. Nunchaku are just nice because they're compact, we can keep a set in a scroll pouch as a sidearm.
>muh warhammer>muh mace>muh kotetsu-shirohigefuck off all of you, all we need is a chakra sword and a ranged weapon, like the one we have now.
>>42657642All right then anon let me ask youWould you rather have a Warhammer or a staff that can change shape/size at your will and be as hard/harder then diamonds?
>>42657642>Hammers are pretty much a universal tool.And never really took off as a weapon in asia, especially not with the Elevens.
>>42657623This is truly a thing. And it is good. Enma is the "special" weapon we should focus on using, because he's fucking nuts.I want /k/ to go.
>>42657661>muh disguised swordfagWhy does everyone love swords so fucking much?
>>42657678The only hammer I remember seeing in the series is the one Chojuro uses
>>42657705konoha has at least one, even it it is ridiculous looking
>>42657693>undisguised hammerfaghey man, I agree we should get a hammer, it's easy to carry around with us, easily hidden and light as fuck! it's not slow and easily dodged by people like those other dumb weapons like swords haha
>>42657715>hammerfagBro i don't care about hammers i just want the adamantine staff cuz that shit is literally the best thing ever in our range
>>42657705>>42657714there's also the Kabutowari of the Seven Swords. yes the Axe tied to a Hammer is a sword, shut up.
>>42657693They're standard-issue kit, they're plain, and in the right hands techniques that use them can be very powerful in the setting.>>42657372>Invisible Kon>Setting traps, throwing swarms of cloned kunai>Unexpectedly punching people through the spineWe'd gain a new element: Surprise.
Kon's ultimate weapon, if we can liberate it from one of the seven swordsmen.
>>42657751Speaking of those, we should see if our chakra-enhanced strength lets us actually wield the Kubikiribōchō properly. Running Impact through that would be badass.
>>42657789it's not as awesome as>>42657785which as a blade made of explosions/explosive tags
>>42657800However it IS in the possession of someone we know, and who wants it to be used.Using it in the defense of Haku's new home could serve two purposes: give us a powerful, unique weapon AND give Haku some added closure.
>>42657785we could ask the monkeys in monkey mountain to help us to make something like that if we have enough intelligence to come up with something like that
>>42657850>>42657789gotta get more swole for that m8i think we need at least 2.5 or 2.0 to wield that shit
>>42657785>>42657789These are both about as sneaky and clever as a brick through a plate glass window, and blatantly inferior to having Enma go all power pole.
>>426578782.0 shouldn't be hard to get to, and like I said before our chakra control lets us enhance our strength.I think it's worth trying.
>>42657886Zabuza was plenty clever with it, we'd just need to learn some actual fucking ninjutsu. Invisibility, clones, mist... all of these are things that we should probably be investigating anyway. Hell, even Kakashi picked it up for a while and seemed to like it.And Enma won't always be there. We may have need for other monkeys, or for him to remain un-transformed.
>>42657906i'm just saying that if you want to use a weapon get the stat requirements for it without the need for buffs cuz theres gonna be that one that where someone is gonna make that buff go awayI'm just saying to be prepared
>>42657906>our chakra control lets us enhance our strengthYou guys know that you don't know how to do that right
>>42657966Do we even know if that's a "thing" IC?
>>42657966... since when? I thought we were working on that during the last howeverthefuck many weeks?
>>42657886don't rally want to have to depend on summoning the Monkey king for 2 reasons, massive chakra cost for boss summons limits our non melee options and summoning the Monkey King for every fight is impolite and a bad idea.
>>42657987We saw Sasuke busting up trees by accident, and one of our techniques involves releasing chakra in a punch. It should be fucking obvious.
>>42657995dude thats not str buffthat was enhancing our attacks with the impact release
>>42657987You know Tsunade does it
>>42658039Are you gonna give us some proper 'Talk to who you want but things don't quite happen immediately so you still have time' downtime?
>>42658017What sasuke did was the chidori so that doesnt really count since its pretty much "lightning punch">>42658039Okay so we gotta learn that shit from tsunade thenFuck you captha that was a banana
>>42658069Sounds about right
>>42658025So it would seem.Disappointed.
>>42658091Any chance you could make a pastebin of what everyone did in the invasion that we didn't see? And maybe what happened with hinata/Oro in the second exam?
how about some Meteor Hammers(assume a longer chain) or Metal Gauntlets
>>42658078Did you even read? I was talking about tree climbing, anon. Channeling too much chakra into his feet damaged the trees, which for someone with as good of a mastery over chakra control should realize has applications.
>>42658128Someone asked for that, so I was gonna make itIt might be a couple of weeks before I get those done though
>>42658134How about we learn some useful ninjutsu instead, and leave the weird and kinda funky weapons to Tenten?
>>42658134>meteor hammersPerfect.We can make the 'chain' out of wound explosive tags. The balls are heavy-metal-laden plastic explosive.
>>42658150Could always do it in episodes, keep us happy.
So possible mastersEnma with pretty much everything that he taught Sarutobi with Konohamaru as a partnerWhile also having Tsunade before or after getting trained by Enma so she can teach us str buff and some medical jutsu so we can heal someone in a hurry and not just watch them bleedout
>>42658173but bonding over obscure weapon choices.that and channeling Impact through a Blunt weapon sounds like a good plan to me.
>>42658204I might release it in parts as I goReally just depends on how fast I can scrounge up the motivation
>>42658236Just grab some bolas and act like Joseph Joestar
>>42658251So, what about Shisui?
>>42658384What's Kon's favorite color?
>>42658408the color of an explosion
>>42658408How should I know? I'm gonna guess >>42658422 though
>>42658384That mean Itachi has the Mangekyo?
>>42658503Wow.Shit....we might still be able to take him. Maybe. Eventually.
>>42658503Would it be possible to learn to move like Shisui?
>>42658567Was....was it Danzo? Is he still a problem?I mean, there wasn't a big gap between Shisui dying and Itachi massacring the Uchiha.
>>42658727Danzo is currently imprisoned for treasonJiraiya was a lot less forgiving than HiruzenThat's why Root was disbanded and Sai is in your class
>>42658761I like this, though I assume that will be a plot thing itself soon.What about Sai's "Older Brother"? He a thing? We gonna meet him?
Jiraiya doesn't have to die in this timeline, please remember this Laze
>>42658794Shin is already dead
>>42658832Aaaaaand sadness.>>42658813Tsunade probably will, though. Killed off by Pain.
>>42658813Everyone has to die, anonExcept OrochimaruAin't never gonna kill that fucker
>>42658850Who gives a fuck about Tsunade.Best buds with Jiraiya, the Saviour of the Leaf, the Toad Mountain Sage, the Best Sannin, the White Maned Toad.
>>42658256I knew I had this for a reason.
