Kakuzu looked on at his latest target. The broad man with the beard, a labourer of some sorts. It didn't really matter what her was, he had a heart and Kakuzu was going to take it. The question was, how? He would start by unwinding his stitches at the back of his body under his cloak as two of his masks jumped out standing behind him, one on either side a meter from him. To his left was his water heart. To his right was his fire heart. His lightning and earth hearts remained within his body.Using Kazan, in signature. You can go first.
The man was playing right into the hands of Kakuzu. Just as he'd wanted, he was going to try and send his weapons back. But that would be no use. Holding out his right arm, he shot a mass of threads from his wrist forwards towards kunai being pushed back by the wind. The threads would grab the kunai taking them towards the man as he launched himself forwards. At this point the kunai would be exploding, catching the man in the blast in the process, while the dark threads stabbed into his body from several angles:Upon seeing his opponent's body morph in a confusing and downright disturbing way, Kazan grunted and raised an eyebrow. He'd been sent here for a demonstration for the Chuunin hopefuls who watched from the seats lining the arena, but upon arrival, he'd found his opponent to be something more in line with an assassin than a fellow Shinobi of honor. Regardless, he couldn't care less.
First, in response to the man's kunai heading his way, Kazan clapped his hands together, allowing Fuuton chakra to surge throughout his body until he exhaled, releasing a strong current of which would both stagger his opponent and send his kunai flying back at him. Following this, the towering man would then launch himself forwards, closing in on the man before striking him with a downwards palm thrust to the chest, aimed to knock him to the ground.
(Fūton: Reppūshō) - Wind Release: Gale Palm
Description: A simple technique that when the users hands are clapped together, wind is compressed and transformed into a powerful gale. This technique, when used as an isolated attack has the power to easily knock over a human. Though the true value comes from using it together with projectile weapons like shuriken or kunai. Their speed, power, and ability to wound or even kill are all increased several times.
(Asshō) - Pressure Palm
Chakra cost: N/A
Damage points: 30
Description: The user strikes their opponent with a downwards thrust striking them to the floor.
The explosions went off and Kakuzu felt his hands hit something, yet no screams, not sounds of defence. His threads hadn't gone straight through either. What was his opponent up to. He then heard a sound, like rock hitting the ground. So he had defended. Kakuzu withdrew his threads waiting for the next attack yet none came. Kakuzu looked around trying to find where the man was.Upon seeing the dark threads launch forwards, Kazan instinctively knew his attack would not succeed in repelling the Kunai. Furthermore, almost immediately following the Kunai's redirection, three pillars of fire erupted around him, angled straight at his current position.
Instead of trying to directly counter each attack, Kazan simply released Doton chakra from around his body, causing a thick layer of rock to extrude all around his body. This would successfully neutralize all of the damage caused by the various attacks. Then, as he felt the Kunai go off around him, the smith took advantage of the inevitable cloud cover provided by the explosion and let his armor crumble away as he merged with the ground, travelling as if he was a part of the surface itself. He would then resurface behind his opponent, striking him with a Raiton-powered punch to the back which would explode outwards, launching him forwards and into the ground.
As his attack landed, Kazan would speak in his gruff tone, serious, but not angry by any means.
"For a demonstration, wouldn't it be best if we show off some of our capabilities at close range? Many of these Genin will want to see what a more experienced ninja can do with their body alone, as they don't yet understand how to use the Elements like us."
(Doton: Koka no Jutsu) - Earth Release: Hardening Technique
Chakra: 40 (+15 per turn)
Description: The user releases a burst of earth chakra from all over his body. As he does this, a multitude of rock seemingly grows from his skin, forming a large, dense armour or rock much bigger and bulkier than the users original size. The armour can be manipulated and used to create extendable weapons to strike a target with like rudimentary swords or hammers. The downside is that the user cannot mold techniques from other elements a part from earth while sustaining the armor. The armor can be manifested in only specific parts of the body if the user so chooses.
(Hiru Banshō: Bōka no Jutsu) - Leech All Creation: Attack Prevention Technique
Chakra cost: 20 (-5 per turn)
Damage points: N/A
Description: Using this jutsu, the user can merge with another passive object and take on its properties to avoid any damage. While merged, the user is virtually undetected unless the enemy has a doujutsu. Even chakra sensors won't be able to pinpoint the users position. The limitation of the technique is that to use a technique and mold chakra, the user must fully unmerge although doing so doesn't produce any sound and the user can only be sensed once fully unmerged. The user is still aware of the world outside the object and can travel inside it at his normal running speed. The technique was used so far by 3 ninjas (Yamato, Orochimaru and Uchiha Madara) but as an advanced ninjutsu, it can be used by any skilled enough ninja.
Note: the user must be Sannin Rank and above
Note: Orochimaru and Yamato can use it 5 times per battle, Uchiha Madara can use it 3 times, other ninjas can use it twice.
Note: Cannot merge into mediums which aren't tangible
(Raiton: Sandā Sāburu) - Lightning Style: Thunder Saber
Description: The user gathers lightning chakra around his fist, generating a sphere of pure lightning around it. The user can then punch a target, unleashing the lightning in the form of a localized electrical explosion.
As Kakuzu leapt up aiming to strike the man in the air as he was about to strike the man flicked something towards him, Kukazu struggled in such short range in the air to do anything but defend. Instantly he hardened his body (yay cannon techs) allowing his hardened body to take the brunt of the blow in the process. Now he was a meter away from his opponent in the air.When he emerged from the ground, Kazan was unfortunately confronted by a pair of masks, one of which proceeded to cast a Water technique which pushed him off of the ground briefly, leaving him stranded in the air. During that moment, the strange man turned around and attempted to strike him with a flying uppercut, crackling with lightning.
Fully aware that he wasn't in a position to dodge the attack, Kazan charged his left fist with Fuuton chakra in the form of six small orbs of wind stored within his clenched hand. Then, by righting himself and flicking upwards with his thumb, he fired all six into the very close-to-striking man, knocking him away and down to the ground as Kazan landed safely.
Following this up, he proceeded to draw his Katana from his sheathe on his right hip with his left hand, empowering it with Raiton chakra while moving straight into a lateral slice aimed to cut both of the masks floating in front of him.
(Fuuton - Yubijuu) | Wind Release - Finger Guns
Range: Short - Mid
Damage: 5 (Per Bullet)
Description: The user first focuses Fuuton chakra into a clenched fist. They then allow the gathered Fuuton chakra to be released into their closed palm. Using shape manipulation, they then form six small, spherical “bullets” of Wind which they hold in their fist. The user may then dip their thumb into the fist (through the top of it) and flick with said thumb, shooting one of these bullets in a direction of their choosing. As they are incredibly small and fast, these bullets usually require either a very high reaction speed or some sensory/dojutsu ability to be reacted to at point blank range. They can, however, be effectively noticed and reacted to if fired from 5 or more meters away. Despite all of this, the bullets disperse at the end of the user’s turn due to their high instability as substances.
-Firing the bullets themselves is a freeform action associated with the technique (they are created by the technique and can be used for the duration of the turn).
-Can be used three times.
( Kusanagi no Tsurugi: Chidorigatana ) - Grass Cutter Sword: One Thousand Birds Katana
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: 40
Description: The user flows Chidori current through a katana in manner similar to flying swallow technique. The Radiating and chirping blade can easily cut through steel. Furthermore, the body of the person cut by the sword goes numb, taking away their freedom of movement.
Kakuzu would slam the man into the ground, with crashing force (60 damage i think) but it wasn't enough the man got back up, and then stomping his foot on the ground. Kakuzu heard something behind him and slightly moved his body, but the spike pierced his chest, impaling him lifting him up into the air. His body going limp as though he'd died, hung from the spike.Kazan slammed into the ground, bewildered at his opponents' speed. Instead of dwelling upon it however, the blacksmith kicked himself back up, prepared to strike his foe down once more. Instead of engaging in the small talk his supposed dignity said he should, the man ignored his mind, instead deciding to go for the kill.
First, the man stomped on the ground with his right leg. From the ground behind his opponent then rose a single earthen spike aiming to pierce the man through his back, suspending him in place. Following this, Kazan would rush the man, feinting a right hook before dipping into a spinning left legged back kick which would strike the man across his jaw.
Finally, Kazan would then allow chakra to fill in the space in his right palm, swirling and compacting it until it became a spiralling ball of death; the Rasengan. With that said and done, the smith would then shove the ball into the other man's chest, likely destroying the spike holding him and knocking him back.
(Doton: Ganchūsō) - Earth Release: Stone Spikes
Description: This technique lets the user create a few rock pillars that will protrude from the ground to skew the target. The rock pillars will even pass through obstacles to reach their target if these are less dense. The pillars/spikes can be done in any earthen surface, including other earth techniques of the user.(Konoha Gōriki Senpū ) - Leaf Strong Whirlwind
Chakra Cost: N/A
Damage Points: 40
Description: A taijutsu using a combination of speed and power. The essence of this technique is concentrated in a spinning back kick, with such speed that makes it hard to follow the user's movement, smashing his enemy with overwhelming strength. This is a more Powerful leaf great whirlwind.
(Rasengan) - Spiral Sphere
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage Points: 60
Description: Rasengan was a Ninjutsu technique developed over the span of three years by the Fourth Hokage, Namikaze Minato. The technique was taught to his sensei, Jiraiya, who then passed it on to Minato's young son, Naruto, years later. The technique is unlike many other jutsu in that it does not require any hand seals. It just relied on the ninja's ability to mold chakra. The ninja concentrates a contained, fast, rotating sphere of chakra in the palm of their hand, which can create a destructive impact.
As Kakuzu finished off his opponent, he sent his threads into the swamp, into the man's chest, grabbing his still beating heart, ripping it from his chest. He pulled it into his body which would reform his lost mask on his back, giving him back his lightning heart.Feeling himself slowly become entrapped in mud as he rushed towards his supposedly dead opponent, Kazan knew he had fucked up. Immediately, he was surrounded by torrential flames, burning away at his skin, and finally, a tearing torrent of water which ripped through him, killing him.
