This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son, shortly after everyone has graduated from their Genin exam. I haven't kept up with the series beyond the end of the original one, so this one is intended to recapture the feel of that time of Naruto. I will not be incorporating the main show or the Boruto movie's plot into the quest, although some recognizable characters will be present. You play as a 12 year old Genin graduate named Takeshi. You have been assigned a Jounin squad leader named Hanto, and your two squadmates are Kichiro, a young delinquent, and Ai, a strange social outcast of a girl. You are of average skill in most aspects, although your sharp intelligence has recently been making itself apparent. The Chunin Exams have begun. The preliminary fights are under way!
You grin widely. "Good luck!" He looks surprised for a brief moment, before smiling gently and responding. "Oh, uh, you too. Hey, by the way, I wanted to make a deal with you." What sort of deal could Roku possibly want to make with you? You hardly know him. You shrug. "Well, maybe. What is it?" He nudges his head towards your side of the stands. "That girl on your team, Ai? She's awesome! Do you think you could get me her number, or her address or something? Or like, introduce us?? How about this! If I beat you, you have to introduce me to her!" You blink, scratching your face with a single finger. This is unexpected. "Well, maybe, I guess." Roku quickly bows. "Thank you!" Shikamaru looks over. "Done?" You get the feeling he's getting progressively lazier as the fights continue, nodding off every now and then before snapping himself awake. Roku gives him a thumbs up. "Done." Shikamaru throws his hand down, and leaps away. "Begin!" >A. Wait to see what he'll do first>B. Throw Senbon with bells at him>C. Grab a kunai and use Shunshin to dash directly at him>D. Use the Transformation jutsu to turn into an elephant, and charge him down. Transform back at the last moment to cover the area in smoke, and create clones as a distraction. >E. Poison one of your weapons. (Specify which poison to use, and what to poison)>F. Write-in

Flipping open your weapons pouch and slipping your hand in, you draw out three senbon with small bells attached. They tingle gently as you lift your hand and take aim, deciding that this was as good an opening move as any. You aim directly for the center of his body, hoping to prompt a dodge from him. Generally you'd be aiming for a more specific point with senbon, but these are simply meant to be a distraction. The first move is an attack, but a psychological one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIOXMbpbuH4With a flick of your wrist the projectiles are sent flying, the bells ringing mid flight. He deftly steps to the left, moving with ease to dodge the attack as it clatters against the wall, and ground. Roku lifts his hands up, and begins to flick through several handseals as you consider your next move. He extends his hand, and shouts. "Water style: Water Whip Jutsu!" At once, water pours from the sleeve of his shirt down to his arm until it forms a writhing liquid tentacle, several feet long. He hefts his arm back slightly and snaps it forward, and the water whip flies towards you at high speed with a crack. You draw a kunai and slash the water, briefly disrupting it before it reforms and strikes again with another whip of his arm. You roll to the side and sling your kunai at his center of mass, forcing him to once again dodge, this time to the right. The whip slings over head as you duck and he moves, and you jump backwards, making distance and taking a breath. >A. Wait to see what he'll do first>B. Throw Senbon with bells at him>C.

Okay ladies, let's see if we can get more than 2 posts into this fight without a shitstorm. Seems to be going good so far.
>>43937170Naruto passed a bill to rename the jutsu to water whip because it's a whip made of water
>>43937215Wait for the first write-in
>>43937229What'd rename the other move?Water Tendril?
>>43937215I'm waiting for the other Naruto quest to pop up any second. Y'know the other odd thing that seems to happen every time.
Quickly darting your hand into your pouch, you draw out both senbon and a flash bomb. Covering your eyes with your arms, you slam it down on the ground, and a brilliant flash blinds the crowd, and hopefully Roku. When you open your eyes you can see him stunned, so you toss a fistful of senbon with bells as well as senbon without bells. Just as you expected, the blind Genin reacted to the sound of the ringing bells, unwary of the possibility of a second attack. Two senbon pierce Roku's thigh, striking an artory. Blood begins to the soak the pants of his leg, and he falls to a knee as he stops on his leg. instantly the Genin starts form handseals, dropping the liquid whip. His hands glow with a green energy that you recognize as the healing jutsu, and he starts to seal his leg. You notice that he leaves the senbon inside the wound for a moment, preferring to give it a moment to clot so that blood doesn't come rushing out. After a few seconds he yanks out the needles, and covers his hand with the healing energy. Blood leaks through his fingers sure enough, but it takes just a moment to completely stop the flow. He stands straight and looks at his bloody hand, and smiles. "Pretty good for an opening move. You made me lose a little bit of blood. Listen, there's a lot at stake here, so I hope you don't mind if I start to go all out, alright?" >A. Only if it's okay for me to do the same. >B. While he's awaiting your response, cast False Sound. You won't activate the jutsu right away, but it will be planted so that you can surprise him later.>C. Use the Clone Jutsu, and then use False Place to give them all shadows. Attack.>D. Write-in
>>43937388>D"No, I do mind. Please continue to hold back for another few minutes."
>>43937388>B. While he's awaiting your response, cast False Sound. You won't activate the jutsu right away, but it will be planted so that you can surprise him later.
>>43937388>>B. While he's awaiting your response, cast False Sound. You won't activate the jutsu right away, but it will be planted so that you can surprise him later.
>>43937388>B. While he's awaiting your response, cast False Sound. You won't activate the jutsu right away, but it will be planted so that you can surprise him later.Will he see us do the hand signs? If we can do it on the sneaky-sneaks, then I like this!
>>43937388>>B. While he's awaiting your response, cast False Sound. You won't activate the jutsu right away, but it will be planted so that you can surprise him later.Also this >>43937415 because seriously asking your opponent is fucking silly and I spent the whole series waiting for someone to give this sarcastic response
So during the middle of one of his attacks we make him hear shikamaru call the fight then go for the final hit tight?
>>43937388Maybe if it's not too out of character, taunt him a bit. Try to get him to slip up or something.
>>43937388>B. While he's awaiting your response, cast False Sound. You won't activate the jutsu right away, but it will be planted so that you can surprise him later.Seconding >>43937415too.
>>43937415>>43937505>>43937554Do it as politely as possible too. Takeshi is polite, even when sarcastic.
>>43937415Yes, please.Along with B, of course
>>43937537 What if we made Shikamaru hear Roku say he gives up, due to a false sound? Is that cheating? That's probably cheating.
>>43937616Yea kinda, also him still trying to hurt us while "giving up" is kinda suspect
>>43937415Changing vote to this.
>>43937388>>43937616I wanted to save False Sound for Mari, but this is hilarious. Still, it wouldn't work as is, but I've got a tweak that might.Make him hear Shikamaru "disqualify" him instead. Then strike when he's distracted.
>>43937896This would get you disqualified, don't use a jutsu on the proctor
>>43937943What about making the opponent hear the proctor's voice?
>>43937943Not using it on Shikamaru. Using it on Roku and making Shikamaru's voice.
>>43937943im not that anon but it didnt say use it on shikamaru it said make him hear shikamaru
>>43937943No, no, I'm saying use it on Roku to make him think Shikamaru's disqualifying him when he's not. Shikamaru's not targeted at all, we're just using his voice.Or we can use a different false sound tactic. We're saving it for when we need it, after all.
>>43937981Oh woops, sorry. Yeah that sounds good
>>43937981I thought the one where we have Mari loudly declare her love for roku was hilarious.
>>43938006As funny as it would be, I don't think he'd buy it. Maybe if we false sounded her giving a warning though... "behind you, idiot!", he turns around, we stab him gooood.
>>43938024That might actually work
>>43938006False love confession vs. Fission Mailed. Decisions, decisions... Also wasn't it Ai he's interested in? I mean, we know he's a womanizer so he'll be interested no matter what, and it's funnier if it's Mari because we can mess with her at the same time and that's always a plus.Just a thought, we can also use False Place to make people look like they're naked. I was saving that one for Sarada since she's got this hangup about boys always wanting her, but last time I checked Sarada thinks we're a psychopath who doesn't feel emotions the way people are supposed to, so she might not fall for it and go hyperviolent tsundere mode on us for it. Still, it's worth considering. Stolen Modesty Jutsu.
>>43938107Sarada is immune to Genjutsu because of Sharingan.
>>43938162Visual maybe but does it block other sense related jutsus?
>>43938162so as long as she's not using it it would be fine?we could do it as a prank rather than in battle
>>43938162Is it a passive thing or does she have to activate it and recognize that she's under genjutsu?
>>43938201Yes>>43938203true, but she'd not appreciate it at all.>>43938213Pretty much when she activates it, All genjutsu no longer work on her period, unless they are Mangekyo cast.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYpySN0SwAYAs he's talking, you grit your teeth. Talk talk talk. All anyone's been doing in these fights is talk trash before they actually whoop each other's asses. You can't afford that sort of luxury. Not now, and probably not ever. You form the handseals for the False Sound Jutsu, and sure enough it's a direct hit as Roku stands there unawares. He holds up a finger and points as you finish."Eh? What were those handseals for? I didn't see a jutsu. Well, if you've got something prepared, I hope it can help you deal with this!" He holds up his blood soaked hand, and the glistening red starts to glow softly. There's a soft humming in the air as the glow intensifies, and he slings his hand in a karate chop motion. "Blood Crescent!" A glowing red slice of blood sings through the air, and you leap directly upwards in order to dodge it. It creates a gouge in the concrete wall behind you several inches deep, and below you Roku charges forward. He leaps upwards to meet you as you descend, and you stomp down with a kick using all of your strength. He narrowly evades it and grabs your leg, spinning around and launching you towards the ground at high speed. Lights flash in front of your eyes as your body hits the concrete, and you gasp for air while scrambling to your feet, only half aware of your actions.
>>43938270You reassert yourself, placing your fists up defensively and blinking as your sight returns from the impact. The entire left side of your body is probably going to be bruised from that, and your shoulder and hips are crying out in pain. Nothing seems to be seriously injured however, as the impact was evenly spread out. Roku turns as he lands, and starts to walk towards you.You're guessing that he can only do that powerful blood attack if he has blood to sling. He can also heal. This means that every injury you give this guy could end up back again as an attack while you retreat. Then you also have to consider that he's a medical ninja and can probably remove poison from his bloodstream. Also better than you in Taijutsu. Trained by rock lee. You grumble to yourself. "I guess he's not really worse than any of the others would be.." >A. Create clones and dash around. Use the false sound to mask your footsteps with the sound of a thundering herd. Have all your clones stop once you do, and create the sound of bells coming from behind him. Throw silent needles in the opposite direction when he turns to look. >B. Taunt him with the sound of Mari saying that she loves him, and shunshin dash in to strike him with your kunai. Disable his hand so that he can't use Jutsu.>C. Throw down all your Caltrops, and use False Sight to create a series of illusionary Caltrops as well. (Cancels False Sound.)>D. Write-in
>>43938162How immune? Is it just that she doesn't see the illusion at all? This is a psychological attack; it hits as long as she's aware of it. The point isn't to deceive her, it's to anger her into making mistakes while getting her to underestimate us. Unfortunately, since she thinks of us as a sociopath, she'll see through it anyway, Sharingan or no Sharingan. It'll still anger her, but she won't underestimate us.
>>43938292>>A. Create clones and dash around. Use the false sound to mask your footsteps with the sound of a thundering herd. Have all your clones stop once you do, and create the sound of bells coming from behind him. Throw silent needles in the opposite direction when he turns to look.
>>43938292>B.You wouldn't tempt us like this without reason.
>>43938292Use transformation trick used on Mari, Coat some senbon with the good poison, then A.
>>43938292>>B. Taunt him with the sound of Mari saying that she loves him, and shunshin dash in to strike him with your kunai. Disable his hand so that he can't use Jutsu.Except modified. Not "I love you", a warning. "Behind you, idiot!". He turns around so we can shunshin and stab.
>>43938292>A. Create clones and dash around. Use the false sound to mask your footsteps with the sound of a thundering herd. Have all your clones stop once you do, and create the sound of bells coming from behind him. Throw silent needles in the opposite direction when he turns to look.I like this one because it still has the chance of him not realizing the False Sound, while the Mari (or Ai) one would be effective but show our hand. If we can generate enough clones then it will still give us the smokescreen effect we would get from the Elephant to Fly technique
>>43938292>>B. Taunt him with the sound of Mari saying that she loves him, and shunshin dash in to strike him with your kunai. Disable his hand so that he can't use Jutsu.But replace it with the sound of Ai cheering him on
>>43938292>B. Taunt him with the sound of Mari saying that she loves him, and shunshin dash in to strike him with your kunai. Disable his hand so that he can't use Jutsu.
>>43938292Hmm...Every injury he has could mean another attack, true. However, each attack has to come from injuries on his body, so it's more of a problem up close than far away. Furthermore, he has to run out of blood eventually...I'm gonna vote A. If we can bait him into attacking with that more, we can win this. Healing takes Chakra. Attacking takes Chakra and blood. Removing poison probably takes Chakra. And all of these take time.>A. Create clones and dash around. Use the false sound to mask your footsteps with the sound of a thundering herd. Have all your clones stop once you do, and create the sound of bells coming from behind him. Throw silent needles in the opposite direction when he turns to look.
>>43938426He only needs another one of those to connect to really fuck us up though.
>>43938292>A. Create clones and dash around. Use the false sound to mask your footsteps with the sound of a thundering herd. Have all your clones stop once you do, and create the sound of bells coming from behind him. Throw silent needles in the opposite direction when he turns to look.
>>43938464You raise a good point. He has better stats than us, so outlasting him will be troublesome. And he's got a tank build, too...
>>43938292>B. Taunt him with the sound of Mari saying that she loves him, and shunshin dash in to strike him with your kunai. Disable his hand so that he can't use Jutsu
>>43938527We might honestly have to kill him. Do the Elephant-to-fly trick and appear behind him with a kunai to take off his head.
>>43938578>mari's belief we're a sociopath intensify
>>43938578Woah dude, let's not go full crazy yet. I'd rather take a loss than kill a fellow village member. We can risk killing him, sure, but not deliberately go for the kill shot.
>>43938292...Something else worth considering. If we do C, it might fool him into thinking that we already used the jutsu he saw us use. Since it hasn't done anything yet, he'll be on the lookout for something that isn't there.
>>43938578Bullseyeing him with full paralysis should take care of him.
i want him to believe we wont get close to him then when he gets cocky enough we go in to surprise him and fuck him up make the move to do so now would only end in failure so we need to keep up the distance fight for now
>>43938578Honestly, I'd sooner forfeit and admit we can't think of a way to beat him that doesn't involve killing him.
>>43938596>>43938578Um, if we were capable of just straight up killing anyone, we wouldnt be having trouble in this competition in the first place. As it is, we having a hard time just injuring him.Secondly, Holy shit do you actually think killing people is allowed during these matches, because its EXPLICITLy not. The judge will intervene.
>>43938578>>43938594I thought it was Sarada that thought that.Also, how about No?
>>43938642This also isnt bringing up how out of character that is. It's like were not even playing the same game.
Can healing palm heal severed tendons? It might be a good idea to go for the achilles and hand tendons if we want to incapacitate a healer.
>>43938594>sociopathDon't you mean psychopath? They're the meticulous ones, the people who excel at hiding their lack of empathy and emotion. Sociopaths are normally irrational and incapable of anything more complex than basic human interaction, and are usually ostracized for being noticeably strange.
>>43938720On that note, if we can disable his arms, and then injure him elsewhere, he might not be able to heal himself at all, since I believe you need to place your hands on the area? Thats something we could exploit. Theres the question of how we could hit both arms before he could heal them though.
>>43938378>te>>43938359>>43938381>>43938426>>43938453>>43938511https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lw9YNl-B5wk"Clone Jutsu!" You form at least two dozen normal clones all around you, a horde of illusions. Even though none of them have shadows or form, their sheer numbers make it difficult to see you. They all take off with you, sprinting in a circle all around Roku as you cause the sound of a thundering stampede to blast through his mind. Roku holds his head and grits his teeth, looking around in shock.
>>43938819Suddenly, the stampede stops. All of the clones do a right face to turn towards Roku, staring him down. The sound of bells echoes out from behind Roku thanks to your jutsu, and as he turns you slip your hand into your weapon's pouch to draw a fistful of needles. Six in total, you fling them all in a burst at various spots on his body. One strikes his thigh, another in the back of the knee. Two in the back and one between the ribs. One slips through his forearm, causing him to tense up in pain as his body is riddled with needles. The remaining ones miss, but even still he falls to the ground on his knee. Roku reaches around and yanks out the ones he can. It doesn't seem that any of them are particularly vital, but they sure must hurt, and they're in places that he won't be able to heal. You smirk. Every little cut helps.He turns to you, needles poking out of his back. "That was unexpected. But the pain of your attack released your Genjutsu, thankfully. Now I know you have it, as well. But you still haven't learned all of my tricks, and I get the feeling I've pretty much seen most of yours. Allow me to demonstrate." The older Genin flies through handseals, and holds out his palms. They start to glow a bright blue. "Chakra Scalpel Jutsu." He starts to walk towards you menacingly. >A. Throw Caltrops on the ground, and use False Sight. Pepper him with ranged attacks.>B. Charge towards him as an elephant. Turn back to use the smoke as cover, and then transfrom into a fly. Sneak attack.>C. As he's walking towards you slowly, tie a wire between two shuriken. Throw them like a bolas, then use Shunshin to dash and attack with a kunai.>D. Write-in
>>43938836>C. As he's walking towards you slowly, tie a wire between two shuriken. Throw them like a bolas, then use Shunshin to dash and attack with a kunai.Healing doesnt work on ropes,
>>43938836>B. Charge towards him as an elephant. Turn back to use the smoke as cover, and then transform into a fly. Sneak attack.Use a window of time to get a weapon poisoned, normal poison on a Kunai.
>>43938270>"Blood Crescent!"Don't you mean IRON REAVER SOUL STEALER!
>>43938768You raise a good point. Unless he knows how to use jutsu one handed, we only need to disable one of his hands....You know what, disabling that hand is tempting, and running the tank out of chakra/blood may not be the best idea. I'm going to change >>43938426to B.
>>43938836>A. Throw Caltrops on the ground, and use False Sight. Pepper him with ranged attacks.We certainly do not want to be in melee range. Can clones use shunshin? It might be a good shock tactic to have a fake Takeshu charge with it.
>>43938836>A. Throw Caltrops on the ground, and use False Sight. Pepper him with ranged attacks.I really don't want to get close to a chakra scalpel-wielding guy who was trained by Rock Lee!
>>43938921they cannot sadly
Hm, if we used false sight to make it look like the ground was slightly higher than it was do you think we could get him to stumble enough for a cheap shot? Presumably the elephant cloud trick first so it's not completely obvious.
>>43938836>>D. Write-inMake another set of clones and charge him with all but one then use false place to make us disappire and give a clone a shadow then have the clone attack with us right behind it to do the real attack with a kunaibasically what Shikadi did just our own style of it
>>43938963raising the whole ground is more of a non euclidian geometry perception screwy sort of thingFalse Place would be more like putting a fake boulder to hide behind, or for him to think he has to circumvent.
>>43939022I mean more like making it look like there's a slope when there isn't
>>43938941Can we elephant, throw caltrops and then false sight to cover up? I don't want him to know there are traps on the floor.
>>43939061False place not sight goddammit.
Went ahead and archived, I get paranoid about mis-archivers if I don't do it. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Boruto
>>43939053well, that'd be more doable I supposethe thing about large changes like that is that it makes someone more likely to question that it's genjutsu that caused it and not you, when you haven't displayed any earth jutsu before. the same could be said with the boulder example too
>>43939022is what i suggested here>>43939008even remotely possible or am i reaching with it
>>43939106Well ideally with the slope it'd be subtle enough that with the elephant cloud it wouldn't even get noticed, because how often do you pay attention to the exact shape of the ground?
>>43939119Only one type of change can be done at a time. So you could give a clone a shadow, or make yourself go invisible. (Your footsteps would still cause noise though, and your clones don't, so it wouldn't be hard to pinpoint you.)
>>43939149If he's not paying attention to the ground then he's just going to take a step forward and break the jutsu, if it's subtle enough for him to not notice he won't really stumble all too much
>>43938836>>A. Throw Caltrops on the ground, and use False Sight. Pepper him with ranged attacks.Stay out of melee range
>>43938836Okay, he sees our plan and wants to end it fast now that time isn't on his side. If we choose C the wire won't tie him up, but it *will* force him to respond to it. Maybe long enough for us to maybe get a hit in, but maybe not. He won't expect it because he's better than us in Taijutsu and knows it. Problem is, he's likely good enough in Taijutsu that he might be able to deal with the distraction and counter us at the same time.If we choose B, he won't be able to see through the smoke, but he'll be expecting a sneak attack by now, since we've pulled so many already. However, transforming into a fly should give us the edge we need to get a hit in anyway.If we want to attack him up close, I think B is a better option than C. However...A is the obvious move, and it's the general plan. It's the smart thing to do, but it's also the one he expects. I'm willing to bet Mari told him about our False Sight, even though we haven't used it yet. Also, pain of attacks will release genjutsu, so hiding the caltrops will only work once. And then the caltrops will be an obstacle to us too, and he'll try and herd us into them. Even so, if we use A, and maybe use some normal poison too, we might force him into playing his hand, if he's holding out more jutsu on us.Hmm... need to think about this more before I vote.Also >>43938893Haha I was waaaay too late. Oh well, no worries.
>>43939175Alright yeah. My other thought is maybe try to hide debris that's behind him and then run over there.
>>43938921>>43938941Hmm... what if we used False Place to make the clone look like it was using Shunshin?
>>43939230You wouldn't be able to mimic the sound that a Shunshin makes.
>>43939242We really need to learn double-layered genjutsu
>>43939258Maybe when you get your sharingan
>>43939275>Maybe when you get your sharinganWell, we'll just have to steal Sarada's then
>>43939275Aren't there strong genjutsu we can use without using the eyes of sue?
>>43939302only do it if you become best friends with her first, otherwise it won't be worth it
Going to have to cut the thread short tonight sadly, I wanted to start earlier but had to work a bit later. If this thread is still here for when I get back from work tomorrow we'll pick up from it, if not, then we'll make a new one.Now you have an idea of what Roku's fighting style is like, and you've gotten a few hits in while only taking one lump yourself. Plan for the rest of the fight ahead, people.
>>43939366I have no idea how we're going to win. I mean, we really could kill him, but I kinda don't want to.
Ah, wait, I totally just missed something!"He starts to walk towards you menacingly."C and A take advantage of that while B. does not. B telegraphs our attack, even if it makes it harder to see where it's coming from. I didn't catch that before.
Gotta say "try to take out his hands so he can't heal" isn't... the WORST plan
>>43939366Sad panda. Thanks for running Mini!
>>43939535We could try the Elephant-to-Fly thing with a fistful of poisoned senbon.
>>43939388How do you defeat an opponent that's superior to you in every way?
>>43939629All I could think was Sun Tzu"Show strength where you are weak, and weakness where you are strong."Are you suggesting we lie like a motherfucker?
>>43939680>Not "Evade him."We really can run down the clock on this guy. All we have to do is get him to attack a bunch of fakes. If we do the elephant charge, then distract him with clones, repeat as necessary and occasionally wade in to strike him, we can probably make him deplete his reserves faster than we'd deplete our own.
>>43939629Lose the match but end up fucking his mom?
>>43939770That's pretty funny
>>43939629Hit him till he goes down...or so the shonen way saysor ya know....use bug poison if it gets tricky
>>43939629Call for help?Scream and cry?Kick them in the dick?
>>43939629Called being the underdog.
>>43939680He's walking towards us menacingly.He's trying to intimidate us.He wants us to be afraid.We're not afraid.If we act afraid, he'll think it's working.Conform to his beliefs, and make him think we're slipping up when we're really not.Question is: how? It's easier said than done.
>>43939629Keeping bleeding him, he needs to use chakra in order to heal himself which in itself is a finite supply. You don't need to beat him, you just need to outlast him.
>>43939922>"Look man, I get that you're trying to be all theatrical n shit..but can you stop looking at me like that? It's kinda creepy..."
>>43939629Hit them where they are weakest?
>>43939629Pretend we have a better move. Start casting an insanely complex jutsu and then just cast false sight on him and make it seem like we're using a Jounin level move.
>>43939922Wait...What happen if we grin at him menacingly, like guts smile?Smiling at the face of danger and/or death.Another idea is to attack him psychologically
>>43939961That's the exact opposite of pretending to be afraid.
>>43939629Make him think he's won then shiv him in the kidney from behind?
>>43940001No, because what he's going to hear is "you are creeping me out, your efforts to scare me are working, and i am trying to mask it with wit"
>>43939629Google just gave me a bunch of boxing tips...I guess they could work in this situation...
>>43940039Shit man... guy's trained by Rock fucking Lee.CQC is not a go
>>43940039I'm pretty sure this guy'd be willing to hit us while we're lying down.
>>43939991'Totally Not a Psycho' Takeshi
Wait....guy have water style too.Maybe we can train with him?Man, should have counter offer that deal with it or if you guys want to be a cheeky cunts, "if I win...help me tease Mari"
>>43940058No not actual fighting tips, just methods of beating stronger opponents.Like outlasting the fighter, using a technique that's focuses on the opponent's weaknesses, learning to fight automatically and to beat them both psychologically and beat them on how much heart you have in the fight.
>>43940238Oh...nice.His strength and weakness?Strength:>We know about that blood crescent thing: only if there is blood.>Anti poison and healer>CQCWeakness:>Womanizer>self-heal blindspots
>>43940381That blood-crescent technique probably isn't very efficient. Between the chakra used the manipulate blood, physical exhaustion caused by blood loss, and then more chakra to replenish the blood, it probably takes more and more of a toll on his system the more he uses it.The answer is we get him to use it as many times as possible while taking as few hits as possible ourselves. We can do this with clones, genjutsu, transformation, ranged attacks, all kinds of shit. If we can get hits on him and force him to lose more blood/chakra faster, all the better. But the point is to outlast him.
>>43940381So we use a sexy no jutsu of Ai and other women if that doesn't work?Make him loose all the blood through his nose.
>>43940461>Sexy no jutsu....Best.Technique.Ever.Naruto be proudUse it as a wild card
>>43940381While our bog standard poison is most likely a no go, the special bug poison probably will still work. The trick is delivering it quickly and distracting him long enough to make his muscles completely paralyzed. I say we need to aim for his arms or upper back. If his arms are paralyzed, his Justus are effectively a non-probably, including his healing skills. This also means any of his Taijustsu involving the arms are out too.
>>43940541I'd say a sexy no jutsu would be just that distraction.
>>43940528So a version of Mari and/or Ai. I think that'd be a win the battle lose the war scenario...
>>43940541No no no, engaging him directly is a fool's errand. He'll wear himself down quick enough on his own.
>>43940541I'm against using special poison for this joker, we don't need it. I'd say we try regular first, it'll make him waste time removing it at any rate.
>>43940557Mari will fucking KILL us...I love itbut AI....She's fine.
>>43940555You do realize we don't know that Jutsu, right?>>43940568I never said get close to him. We can deliver the poison at range, then continue peppering him with other tools we have or from those still in the arena itself.
>>43940611Great plan, as long as we don't use bug poison. It needs to be our ace for a real match, not a prelim
>>43940611Sexy no jutsu is a practical genjutsu that every nin from the academy should know. Especially with Hokage Naruto in charge of everything.
>>43940611>You do realize we don't know that Jutsu, right?Isn't it just ordinary transformation, but with tits? That said, I'm not sure if Takeshi has studied the female body (porn) enough to make a decent looking one.
>>43940638Given his age and lack of understanding of what Sakura implied? Probably not
>>43940660>>43940638So they don't teach human anatomy at the school? Isn't that like...a thing ninjas are required to know?
>>43940638He's 12. And seeing as Takeshi isn't a pervert, I don't see him as the porn acquiring kind of guy.
>>43940666Given we had to study weak points on our own? Probably not to the extent you're thinking of.>>43940691also this.
>>43940666There's a difference between normal human anatomy and sexy anatomy.
>>43940666There's a difference between knowing how babies are made and thinking of making one yourself.
Why not just go for the eyes? The dude's show he can heal, so it should only be a minor inconvenience that buys some time.
>>43940703>>43940703So if Takeshi needed to disguise himself as a woman, he'd have to be fully clothed, and possibly a stuffed bra?
>>43940691Guess we'll ask Mini.If he says no, then its a bust.Normal transformation to Mari can distract him too ya know
>>43940703>>43940708Heh, it looks like we're the same person.
>>43940691This gave me a bad idea that made me laugh.Takeshi doesn't know what's sexy and what isn't yet. However, he *does* know that Roku likes girls a lot. So instead of a naked image with a lot of guesswork involved, how about cute outfits instead? We could create the Moe no jutsu!
...I feel like either we're going to lose horribly or nothing else is going to happen because Mini is on a errand/eating/misc.
>>43940968>Some ninja named Moe keeps thinking we named it after him.
>>43940972He have work...He will resume tomorrow>>43940968Naruto reaction?>>43940983Moe from Simpson?
>>43940968That... is not as bad of an idea as my instinctual reaction>>43940972Mini already ended the thread, we're just still supposed to be talking strategy by QM fiat
When we do one of those elephant smoke bombs, could we also make a clone dash out of the smoke? Since the area is clouded by smoke, the fact the clone produces no shadow is largely irrelevant.
Why haven't we poisoned this kid yet? We just poison him and then keep on rushing him so he cannot heal. He might be better at taijutsu, but all we need is to keep him from extracting the poison while he tires out.
>>43940968>Moe no JutsuIt didnt cause nosebleed, it cause heart attack.Naruto banned it because of its weapon of mass destruction nature
>>43937215I'll post some more thread caps if that happens again
>>43942076Good on you.
What if we transform into a really fucked up zombie. This setting isn't too familiar with zombies right? Seeing a decaying body walking around might be a big enough shock to give us an opening
>>43941385Have the clone do the bolo trick while we throw senbon without bells at him
>>43944321He'd be able to tell it's a clone and respond accordingly
I hate to be Debbie Downer here but I really think that even if we win we should really retire from the tournament and spend all that time honing our skills for the next chuunin exam.If you think about it with all these Mary Sues and Gary Stus we dont have a real chance of competing in a straightforward battle, mainly becausea)We dont have the potential. We're shitbag mcgee and we dont have any natural-born gift.b)We dont have a teacher and even if we manage to get one since their babbis are gonna be fighting in the tournament they're probably gonna give us half-assed directions just so we dont have the tools to defeat their kids/relatives or because they think we're trashcans and their efforst are not worth being invested in someone like us.c)We dont have the intel. We dont know jack shit about any of our future opponents beyond the "they're stronger than us" assumption so we cannot really train and deliver a hard counter and taking into account these are way pass our limits one shot might be enough to get fucked since these are not battles like the previous test where we can prepare,ambush, surprise and be sneaky.d)We dont have a finisher move. Yeah we're sneaky, yeah we're crafty, ofc we have many ways to slither past our opponent's defense but if you think about it, we really dont have anything that can pack a punch strong enough to deliver the killing blow. We rely on outlasting our enemies which soon is gonna get us nowhere because the snowflakes are just gonna scream, go berserk and use some sort of magic mumbo-jumbo to one-shot us.e)The few techniques that we have are gonna be revealed in this battle. This faggot has already told everyone and their mothers that we're genjutsu users, if our oponnent does not have brain damage he will prepare for that.I know we just have to give an impression to make it to chuunin and not just win, but if we go into a fight and get ourselves destroyed in one move what impression does it give?
>>43947096Honestly, I'm ready to forfeit now and say we can't figure out how to beat him without killing him, and killing someone over something as silly as a promotion just isn't worth it.
>>43947096>we really dont have anything that can pack a punch strong enough to deliver the killing blowPoison and explosive tags
>>43947254Poison relies on taking effect is not immediate and we dont have any explosive tags left do we?
>>43947245I agree with the no killing policy since we already have a bad enough reputation, but for the record, I think the instructor would stop us before we kill the opponent. Still I dont think us being stopped from murdering our opponent by the instructor doesnt bode well for our reputation either.
>>43947274We'll have plenty once we reach the tournament proper. For our current match we hit him with our strongest poison and then just harass him to keep him from trying to extract it.
>>43947313>We'll have plentyWhy? I dont think we have the money for it considering so far we've only been able to afford 2 tags in the whole quest.
>>43947344we need to learn to make them
>>43947096Say we retire now. What are we going to do for a month whilst our companions are training? What would we do different if we weren't in the exams?As for the teacher, that surely depends on who we get doesn't it? I mean Kabuto was mentioned, he doesn't have any motive to 'half-ass' if we went for him for training. Kurenai is another alternative, being a genjutsu specialist, and whilst her daughter looks after a team, that's not really going to influence her either.Why would it matter about intel? You train to win fights and be flexible against opponents, it's probably very rare for a ninja to know who their opponents would be especially a month before-hand. Trying to be a hard counter an opponent makes it looks like you're fighting just to win a tournament, which is not what the examiners want to look for.I know Mini seems to have a hard on for making us suck compared to everyone else. But I'm struggling to see what your alternative is.
>>43947096>We dont have a finisher move.With a month to develop one I'm not all that worried. Either we git gud with genjutsu, or maybe we learn some water bullshit jutsu.
>>43947434We would have more than a month to prepare for the next chuunin exam and probably not risk getting crippled by our next opponent.>KabutoDo we know where he is?>KurenaiSame as above>Why would it matter about intelWell while you're certainly right about being flexible as a ninja, I think you're dismissing the point that we're not a straight-forward fighter and in a real battlefield we wouldnt really face the enemy ninjas 1v1 on the open and if we did we would probably move the battlefield to a zone where we can be comfortable sneaking around and dealing damage rather than fighting them in a head-on battle, and also the point of us getting our asshole torn open in a single move is not probably what the examiners are looking for either.My alternative is, let the bigger fish move up, wait for the smaller fish to come and devour them. Giving us time to grow, amplifying our repertoire and letting us have enough pieces to properly play chess with our oponents, rather than trying to fight a full set of pieces with a pawn and a knight.
>>43947437We're not mary sue anon, that's the point of the quest. We're supposed to be the garbage tier background shinobi.
>>43947700>Do we know where he is?Just ask.
>>43947700>KabutoI don't think we even know he exist IC>KurenaiShe's the mom of one of the jounin squad leaders, and probably godmom to one of our classmates. Finding her shouldn't be too hard.
>>43947096A) if we work at it we can keep up, Lee, Himaya and Naruto were jobbers for a long while.B) we can find one if we look, Kabuto, Kakashi or Kurenai off the top of my head. Takes a little effort.C) watch the other matches, that will get us IntelD) ironically a finisher move isn't that big of a deal, a dagger to the throat is still lethal.E)Takeshi can learn new techniques fairly fast due to high int and determination also we have no concrete style yet.If you want to pussy out fine, but I at least want to try.
>>43947715It's not like we're going to pull a Sasuke and learn Chidori in our month of training, but it is not unfeasable to learn a decent finisher.
>>43947812A)Yeah they werent special snowflakes, not at all. The gates?Pffsshh we can do that with our eyes closed. The kyubi in ourselves? Ezpeazy bru.b)Again we dont fucking know them, you're assuming they will teach us and teach us properly but it still remains that they're probably thinking "aw how cute he thinks he can be a chunin" in their heads. Also we dont know kabuto IC according to someone above.c)They're strong enough they can keep their aces hidden.d)Tell that to all the guys we've been peppering with weapons while they dont give a fuck about it.e)He has decent chakra control and good intelligence but even so he isnt S rank chakra control/intelligence master +++ alpha ultra, even in our highest stats we're behind other guys in our promotion, mini said so if I recall correctly, and our chakra pool is shit enough that we wont have an ebin technique in our arsenal, it's probably some shit-tier technique like that one about spitting water senbon and such that we're gonna get in the best case scenario. If you think you can win against them with one or two new garbage tier techniques then okay, let's do it I dont mind, I was just thinking we might as well skip it all together to not waste time but it's not like it matters.
>>43948025If that's your view you may as well give up now and drop the quest. The whole point of this quest is to recapture the feeling of struggle. Naruto was Really outclassed by all his peers early on too. If hadn't have kept trying he'd have never gotten anything done. Same thing here, you either keep trying, or pussy out and go nowhere.
>>43948078Nigga we dont need to drop the quest, we just need to give us enough time to grow our skills. And naruto is not us, naruto had ALL the special snowflake perks, we dont. We rely on what we have, no deus-ex machina behind to keep us going like him.
>>43948025Again, what are we going to do in this month with no missions if we drop out?You seem to be saying we can't go to anyone for training, because they'll think we're shit for some reason and won't bother to teach us anything. Which seems rather silly because what we learn can also be used on missions even if we fail.I'm not sure why not participating in this exam makes us better prepared for next years. Other than 'oh they'll know less of our moves'. Which implies that we won't learn anything for the next year if we do fight in the tournament.>>43947715That depends on what your assumption of background is I guess. Faceless Mook A, yeah you're right, but Shino or Kiba were pretty much 'average' ninja in the scheme of things, and they still had their moments to shine. If we're stuck as A forever we might as well stop the quest, or at least ask to be transferred into a shittier team so we don't drag down Kichiro or Ai.
>>43948025It seems premature to forfeit, it's not like chess where there are only a certain number of possible moves and you can tell early on if you'll win or lose. There are still things we have not tried and avenues we haven't attempted. If they believe we're a psychopath then play that up, make him worry about closing.If we still have poison, use it.Also keep in mind that the people we are fighting with are all special snowflakes and are used to fighting other special snowflakes. We're up here with them and thus, if they have any intelligence at all, they probably think we have something special too. They should be waiting for the other shoe to drop.As far as our rank in intelligence we might as well have S rank. We have a ton of voices in our head to outsource our plans too, a lot of perspectives to look at the situation with. Next time Mini is here we should ask for a better description of the environment as it stand. Where are the debris sitting, where the statues are, anything we can possibly use to our advantage.It's far too early to throw in the towel but we're also not Naruto and we are intelligent enough to know when to forfeit. It;'s an option just as valid as the others, just not necessary yet.
>>4394844910 garbage tier training months may amount to more than 1 garbage tier training month, that's what I'm basically saying. We dont need teachers to improve our "face-to-face" combat skills, get our taijutsu improved and maybe even earn enough money to have a couple toys and become !notbatman in the shinobi world is what I was thinking.Or we can go to the tournament, get ourselves into the fights hope that nothing awful happens and we dont have to recover for a billion years so that even if we lose we still have a chance to prepare for the next chunin exam. The second seemed risky to me so I thought that maybe we should skip this one and go straight to the next one, but hey whatever floats the majority's boat, I dont mind.>>43948466>If they believe we're a psychopath then play that up, make him worry about closing.I dont think that's really good though, banking on bad rep only helps further that rumor, and do we really want to antagonize our village against us? But yeah you're right it doesnt hurt to see the layout of the battlefield weight our options and decide on the spot to go further or not.
>>43948681Do you remember how Shikimaru was made chunin because of his smarts and leadership ability instead of his individual skill or powerlevel? We can be this years Shikimaru.
>>43948681It's a heavily watched tournament with examiners who will step in if shit gets too dangerous, and also legions of healing magic ninjas to help us recover. The worst that can happen is like Rock Lee, who after two months was back fighting. And heck, we can always watch Boruto prepare his Big-Bang-Kame-Chidori-Sengan and just go "lol I quit" It just seems silly to me for us to stop an opportunity, just because we might lose. I mean 90% of the special snowflakes will be in the next year's exams, that they'll also have had a year to train for.
>>43948878Yeah no I admit it was premature jumping the gun this early, you're right, we can always drop even if we're into the fight. I just have the typical player paranoia, that feeling that we're stepping into the dm's trap or whatnot.>>43948800I'm mainly worried about getting crippled or having some serious damage done to us. I know we're probably gonna face a wall sooner or later because you know special powers and whatnot, and I know that the only chance we have at this test is by showing that we're capable enough rather than winning, I'm aware our chance to make it to chunin does not lie in the winning the fights, I was just thinking "we're gonna get so outpowered that we're not even gonna have the chance to show our skills" with a side of "omg what if we get crippled". But yeah you guys are right on that one, there's always time to give up and the examiners/medical teams are present.
>>43949055Hey, if we're completely outclassed it might give us a very positive mark to realize our shortcommings and concede the match before we get seriously injured.
Wait a second... Can we take out the lights?
>>43949331Yeah probably, but we don't have any better way to operate in the dark than he does. What we can do is make him think that we turned out the lights though with false sight
I still say we wear the guy down instead. That blood manipulation can't be easy on his chakra or his body. If we get him to use it enough, we'll exhaust him.
>>43949571Really, all we have to do is last longer at any rate.
>>43949563...What if we turned out the lights, and then made him think the lights were still on?
>>43949331why don't we just fling two needles into his eyes? I mean he's walking at us with a causal strut right? Just some some clones to block his line of sight of our hand, use false place to make it seem like we're just thinking of our next move instead of us reaching to grab two needles and then we can let them fly into his eyes. I mean he can heal so he'll probably fix that problem pretty quick but it will buy us time to try some other things.
>>43949924Then we would have to upkeep and moving picture of the battlefield while keeping his own movements accurate without being able to see them ourselves. Way too many moving parts to pull off. I would love to be a proficient Genjutsu user but we need to work more on it. Honestly an underutilized school in the verse
You know, i can't help but laugh when i imagine how this fight must look from the outside.Like, the whole swarm of clones and false sound stampede into an attack?All the spectators saw/heard, was a silent army of fake Takeshi's and the sound of a single guy running around his opponent.Topped of by Roku (due to false sound) looking in the completly wrong direction, just to be hit by the guy who, to the spectators, obviously was the real Takeshi.
>>43949981>swipes them aside his chakra knife jutsu
>>43950696We're gonna get a lot of loud heckles during the tournament bit. Just some kid wandering around and then (hopefully) his opponent just falling over.
>>43950696Genjutsu makes your opponent look like a retard.
>>43950756If we're really lucky the match is basically just the opponent jumping around while we sit in the shade, then after a few minutes we get up and punch them in the face and end the match
>>43950756>>43951017Hallucinogenic poisons synergize really well with Genjutsu.
>>43951028Fuck yes, we should get some when we have money for it. Another reason to stick it out with the exams. Chunnin are paid more and we need the dosh, not the most noble reason but I like it and I would love to see someones face when we tell them
>>43951265Remember that money is a superpower.More on topic, I wanna take this guy down, and I'm positive we can. Question is how?He might be able to heal wounds, but so can we, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't know that. We can use that, but it's something that's better kept until the worst case scenario. We can use it to out-tank him at range while we whittle him down slowly with poison and play keep away with caltrops. Or we could try a risky gambit and go for a disabling strike, then use healing to mitigate the damage. One other idea: False place: fake an explosive tag somewhere. Not an explosion, just the tag. Might startle him enough to leave him open.
>>43951875BtwCan we made up some fake jutsu?
>>43951875healing palms takes a while to do stuff, better poison and wear him down.
We should read up on toxicology at some point. Growing poisonous plants/mushrooms might also be a worthy investment. Never underestimate the power of having a lungful of spores.
>>43952097Man so much things that require money... Fuck being poor.
>>43952325We ain't poor, just a 12 year old.
>>43952496We're 2poor for our !notbatman dreams. Anti-boruto spray repellant when?

Just to point these things out, we know that he expects a sneak attack, so what if we just did smoke cloud followed by letting it dissipate and just taunting from the other side of the arena? He'd be willing to keep his distance if he thought something was up with the other side of the arena.Either that, or it would be quite easy to hit a nerve by hitting him in the armpit. Stick a senbon in there and he'd lose an arm from hitting the nerve. Bandaid magic can cure him later. Other good spots to hit are the end of the spine on either side which will take out a leg, the elbow, which will disable at least half the hand, kicking the side of the knee which can break ligaments really easy, the base of the sternum where the diaphragm attaches can break easily, making the opponent have a hard time breathing because it loses an attachment, and the chin which can cause someone to be knocked out if it's hit hard/often enough. We might want to keep the potential one-shot to the sternum under wraps though, as a finisher.
