The Inuzuka and the Hayabusa would cross the seas as they journey towards witchwood.
They had delayed enough, and neither was a fan of wasting anymore time, so they began their battle preparations forthrightly so that they could immediately throw themselves into the tumult of battle upon their arrival.
From the Inuzuka would emerge two male Ninken, who would immediately fuse to become one.
Keruberosu Mohō | The Cerebus Imitation
Chakra Cost: 30
Damage Points: N/A
Description: Allows for two or more Ninken to fuse together to gain the size and strength increase signature to Inuzuka transformation techniques. Unlike most other transformations, the size increase is not static but is instead adaptable, allowing the fused Ninkens to freely shift between normal sizes up to giant summon sizes. Furthermore the fused entity is capable of producing additional limbs and appendages (No more than the sum of the unfused participants, i.e 2 Ninkens would have 8 legs total), and is also capable of increasing it's musculature for additional strength. Fused Ninken will gain a +20 damage boost to Inuzuka techniques, while also being capable of withstanding B rank and below physical attacks due to their enhanced musculature and fur, and holding the ability to shatter through B rank and below defences by increasing their size, or even just their density and weight. High Breeds who use this technique will have their healing factor increased greatly while in this state due to the shifting nature of this technique and the tremendous amounts of physical energy crammed into a single body, as a result they will be capable of regenerating from bruises, stab wounds and burns within the period of a turn, while more severe injuries such as shattered bones will require two turns to regenerate from. Along with this, they will gain the ability to perform minor changes to their bone and cartilaginous structure, such as alterations to accommodate for bipedal movement, elongate claws and fangs, and even the ability to alter the plates within their skulls to produce sprouting horns - however the changes will always be purely functional in nature, and unlike Kaguya's they will not hold the capacity to produce or manipulate bone to any exceptional degree.
- Last for four turns, five in the case of a High Breed.
- Merging requires to Ninken to be within a meter of each other, or direct physical contact.
- Can be used again to refresh the duration of this technique, or similar such combination transformations. Naturally this counts towards move and usage count.
- Can work alongside Double-Beast Head Transformation and other such Inuzuka techniques.
- In the case of only a single Ninken, the user can assist with this technique, producing a clone so as to reach similar effects. However the fusion will be less stable, and as such only last for half the time. (Rounded up (2 or 3 turns respectively))
- This technique will slowly begin to take its toll on a Ninken, should a Ninken enter into another transformation directly after this technique, or refresh it's duration, they will, after 5 turn enter a fatigued state that will leave them incapable of performing Inuzuka techniques above B rank or entering into an more transformative unions for three turns.
- Can only be taught by Scaze
Meanwhile, the Inuzuka would begin to charge his fire chakra.

Description: Breath of the shapeshifters is the name of Yoru’s signature shapeshifting ability. Yoru is composed of a malleable black substance formed via Yin-Yang release. The substance has no fixed properties, meaning it takes on whatever properties the user and it’s creator desires. Yoru uses this ability to shapeshift into different animate and inanimate forms. The ability provides the user with a wide array of weapons. Yoru could stretch, expand and contract at will, as well as harden itself like high grade steel in order to act like an actual durable weapon. The shapeshifting ability is not limited to weapons however, Yoru is capable of taking the shape of an animal or beast as well extensions to the user’s body, like an extra pair of arms or functional wings. Yoru’s body also becomes an infinite supply of basic munitions such as shuriken and kunai, and as such allows Yoru to be used as a long range weapon such as a bow or even an adequate replacement for CFS and CW techniques or other weapon techniques if plausible. As for special munitions, such as explosive tags (whose properties yoru can’t replicate by itself), Yoru is capable of keeping a huge supply within itself without gaining mass. The user is able to draw objects from Yoru really fast and in quick succession, at the same speed as he would from a pocket. Similarly, Yoru’s ability to shapeshift into a different weapon is instantaneous and does not consume a move or chakra. However, moving back to humanoid form or in the shape of another creature always costs a move and 40 chakra. While in weapon form, Yoru is incapable of using the rest of its abilities, with the only exception being chakra transfer technique. If allowed the property, user is able to conduct chakra and energies into Yoru without harm, and Yoru is able to reciprocate. Yoru’s ability to adapt properties is also voided as a humanoid/creature, i.e. Electricity could be channeled into Yoru without harm as a weapon, but as a humanoid he would get hurt and paralyzed. When not in combat, Yoru is passively able to use this technique to shapeshift as an ornament, a tattoo or to simply hide in the user’s shadow.
The name Breath of shapeshifters implies, a power or energy bestowed upon by the (orginal) shapeshifters. The technique is jokingly called Tanuki no jutsu (Racoon-dog technique), a pun on it’s name, Tatazumai-no-ki. Tanuki in japanese lore are also renowned mischievous shapeshifters, with abilities that most closely resembles Yoru’s own.[/spoier]
Arriving from the two could finally see the coast of Tobusekai in the far distance. It invoked little feelings in Solomon, the land was tainted after all. It was nothing like his home 800 years ago. Oui had yet to reply, a cause for concern for the Mage King.
