____________________________Naruto Leaf Ninja Tournament________________________
And that concludes the Non-Leaf NInja Tournament now let’s get this Leaf Tournament started! ^(0_0)^ Same rules apply from the first tournament except of course this is only Leaf Ninja.
1. This is a tournament involving only leaf ninja we have seen in at least one battle! The poll at the end of the post will determine which ninja moves on to number 1 spot. Of course that’d be the choice with the most votes. The ninja with the most votes automatically moves on to the Part 2 post next week.
2. In the comment section make a top 10 list of who you think are the top 10 ninja on this post. From those lists we will determine who moves on to the spots 3-10.
3. Spot number 2 will be determined by debate of who you think can take on the ninja with the most votes in the poll and based off the top 10 lists you all create.
4. The winners of spot numbers 1-10 will be revealed in Part 2 of this post next week. Also in Part 2 winners of spots 1 and 2 will be matched up against each other through debate and poll to determine who the true victor of this tournament is.
5. The victor will be announced on Part 3. If this goes well enough we’ll put the winner of the Leaf Ninja Tournament against the winner of the Non-Leaf Ninja Tournament to find out the ultimate ninja!
Note: There will be no Madara in this tournament because his space/time jutsu makes him untouchable, his powers are still unknown, and overall he’s to cheap. In his replacement I have added some useless ninja to make fun of for the most part…>_>
Hashirama: 1st Hokage and founder of Konoha. Possesses the Kekkei Genkei Mokuton jutsu (wood release) which was said to help build Konoha’s very foundation. The Mokuton jutsu was also a powerful technique in that it gave him the power to suppress a Bijuu’s chakra allowing him to collect them. He was also a user of genjutsu for those who can remember that far back. (http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/122/14/) Hashirama was one of the most powerful ninja of his time which led to his eventual battle with Madara. Hashirama came out the victor in that battle even with the EMS and Kyuubi in Madara’s power.
Tobirama: 2nd Hokage and little brother of Hashirama. Was a master of Suiton jutsu (water release) and as the Hokage was the strongest in the village after his brother’s death of course. Able to perform high level Suiton jutsu without any body of water in the vicinity.
Hirzune: Better known as Sarutobi or the 3rd Hokage he was trained under both Hashirama and Tobirama in the art of the shinobi. Was donned ‘The Professor’ for his ability to learn and use every single jutsu in the Leaf Village. Iruka also mentioned Hiruzen was known as the strongest Hokage of all. Even in his old age he was able to hold off the summoned corpses of the 1st Hokage, 2nd Hokage, and Orochimaru eventually defeating the first two opponents. He can summon the Monkey King Emma who can turn to a staff as hard as diamond.
Minato: 4th Hokage of Konoha. His nickname is ‘Konoha’s Yellow Flash’ and is so for good reason. Thanks to his Flying Thunder God technique he could instantly summon himself to wherever his special seal was placed, whether it be on a person’s body or his kunai. With the FTG Minato could wipe out an entire platoon of ninja in a blink of an eye. His prowess was so much feared that in the 3rd Ninja War orders were given to the enemy to flee on sight. Jiraiya remarked that he was a genius with talent you only see once a decade at best. On top of that he is able to summon Gamabunta and defeated the Kyuubi in battle at the cost of his own life.
Tsunade: 5th Hokage and the only female to hold the title. ^(0_0)^ One of the 3 Legendary Sanin she is best known for her amazing medical abilities and feats. As so she is regarded as the best medical nin in the world. The chakra seal on her forehead can be released with Ninpou-Genesis Rebirth allowing her to rapidly increase the cells in her body to reconstruct damaged parts and even organs. Tsuande is also just as much known for her immense strength amplified by her chakra to gain inhuman strength. One of her greatest feats of strength was when she picked up Gamabunta’s big ass sword in her weakened state during the fight with Orochimaru and slammed it through Manda’s mouth.
Danzou: Temporary 6th Hokage appointed by the Daimyo he posseses Shisui Uchiha’s Sharingan in his right eye which is damaged. Even though it’s damaged he can use it very proficiently which he demonstrates by detecting 17 ninja hiding in a forest. He also has excellent skills at fighting as he dispatches all of those shinobi alone with Futon jutsu (wind) and his sword. The Sharingan also has a special ability which allows its user to manipulate and influence another’s actions without that person knowing.
Yamato: Temporary leader of Team 7 he shares DNA with the 1st Hokage (Hashirama) which allows him to perform Mokuton jutsu. This ability allows him to suppress the chakra in the less advanced stages of the Kyubi. Though he is far less profiecent with the justu compared to the 1st he is still very much skilled, demonstrated by creating large houses instantly (even if it’s to his demise that it feels like he’s rebuilding Konoha by himself XD).Yamato is also a skilled tracker, trapper, and adept in taijutsu.
Anko: Found to be of interest at an early age by Orochimaru shows her talent as a ninja seeing as how Orochimaru has a keen eye for the gifted. Orochimaru branded her with the Curse Seal which she still possesses, but it doesn’t seem to grant her anymore power but instead inhibits her when activated. Anko has the ability to conjure up snakes like Orochimaru which leads to her most deadly attack, a forbidden jutsu called ‘Twin Snakes Mutual Death’. This jutsu produces two snakes from the user’s sleeve after the necessary hand seals which bite both the user and intended target injecting them both with deadly venom.
Kurenai: Condition…not pregnant! -_- Top genjutsu specialist in the Leaf Village and leader of Team 8. Not much else is known about her fighting ability… If it counts any she’s sexy as hell and Asuma was one lucky bastard! ^_^ No pervert can stand up to her is she strikes a pose so that defeats the likes of Jiraiya, Hiruzen, and Ebisu! Oh, and I”m sure she’s a wonderful fighter…>_>
Kiba: Noted for his speed, heightened senses of sight and smell, and tracking ability he teams up with his life long pet/friend Akamaru to make an unbreakable team. He has a unique form of taijutsu that is bestial in nature and inherent of his clan. Most of his attacks are in coordination with Akamaru making for devastatingly accurate and damaging double team attacks. Most notable is their ‘Man Beast Combination Transformation: Double-Headed Wolf’ where they turn into a giant double headed wolf…obviously.
Hinata: The sexiest Kunoichi in ‘Naruto’ by far and the most badass…but that’s just my bias opinion. 😄 Hinata possesses 1 of the 3 great doujutsus, Byakugan, allowing her a nearly 360 degree view of her surroundings in battle and keen site to her opponent’s vital areas and chakra circulatory system. In insight to the opponent’s condition, feelings, and even thoughts the Byakugan surpasses the Sharingan. She also specializes in the Gentle Fist which Rock Lee proclaimed as, “The Leaf’s strongest taijutsu style”. Did I mention Hinata’s amazing flexibility…o_O
Shino: Since birth he has had bugs living inside his body which come out to aid him in battle when called upon. These bugs drain the enemy’s chakra until he/she is left incapable to fight. The bugs serve other numerous roles too such as tracking, making a bug clone, and using the bugs as a sacrificial shield…*snickers* Shino is a thinker that tries to stay one step ahead of his opponent usually boxing him/her into a corner to get surrounded by his bugs… He then proceeds to creep his opponent out with said bugs. As demonstarted by Tobi… http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/395/02/ Nasty indeed. >_<
Asuma: The lucky bastard that got Kurenai…no wait there’s more than that… Asmua was the leader of Team 10 and quite formidable with taijutsu and his trench knives. In the Sound Invasion of Konoha he single handedly defeated 9 Jounin level ninja without being touched once and quite easily too. His special ability involved fusing his wind chakra with his specially made knives, increasing their reach and drastically increasing their lethality to the point of where he could throw them and pierce through a boulder. He also possessed Katon jutsu (fire) demonstrated when he did his ‘Searing Ash Cloud’ jutsu on Hidan…unfortunately while Hidan was in his special circle…>_>
Shikamaru: Two words, analytical genius. Possesses an IQ of over 200 which is only matched by his superb laziness and infatuation with clouds. After a quick meditation he is able to think 10 moves ahead of his opponent and develop over a hundred strategies. Shikamaru’s ability has led him to receive great praise and responsibility, ironically enough, to lead teams of former classmates. His intelligence combined with his Shadow Manipulation technique usually screws over his opponents as Shikmaru finds various ways to trap and capture his target.
Ino: Alright, you know how I said there would be useless characters to take up Madara’s space in this tournament? Well, introducing Useless Ninja #1 who couldn’t even develop the Shinranshin no Jutsu (Mind Body Disturbance Technique) after 3 years. Consequently, after her sensei was killed and she set out to avenge him she was stuck with the same old Shintenshin no Jutsu (Mind Body Switch Technique) she had 3 years ago! Guess what? She couldn’t use it on such high level ninja so in other words she was f**king useless again and only served to yelp and get in the way. You should see her face of disappointment when Shikamaru basically tells her she’s about as useful as Moegi. It’s f**king priceless here take a look http://www.onemanga.com/Naruto/335/09/. USELESS!!! -_-
Chouji: Useless Ninja #2! Don’t get me wrong I love Chouji…3 years ago but 3 years later he turned into a fat bastard again who can’t land a punch. It’s true he helped Kakashi fight Pein but of course Kakashi did all the work and all Chouji did was wrap some chains around the guy. He nearly got Kakuzu thanks to Shikamaru’s planning but of course that didn’t work. I’d say Chouji is on the very edge of usefulness teetering either way. He does have some impressive body size altering jutsu and he makes a great bowling ball. What he really needs to do though is bring out those pills again and grow some awesome looking butterfly wings. Kind of like that picture over there. Float like a butterfly eats like a bear just out of hibernation. -_-
Maito Gai: DYNAMIC ENTRY!!! If you hear that you better duck because there’s a jump kick coming your way and you probably don’t have medical insurance. 😉 Don’t let his silly demeanor fool you though Maito Gai is a very talented shinobi. Gai is a taijutsu specialist that utilizes the style Strong Fist, relying on heavy bone breaking attacks. Thanks to his intense work regime dedicated to that one style he has gained immense strength and speed. Even though Gai trains only in taijutsu he is still able to use ninjutsu and possibly genjutsu. Gai is also able to open the Gates all the way up to the 8th at the cost of his life of course. If he brings out the Nunchaku (Nunchucks) you better get the hell out of there! Gai has a unique way to fight Sharingan users by looking at their feet and predicting their movements from there.
Neji: Just take Hinata, clone her 4 times, put 3 of them together, and give me the 4th one and you’ll have Neji! 😀 Lol, jkjk it’s not known how much stronger Neji is compared to Hinata at the moment but odds are (95%) sure that Neji still and always will have a large gap on her. Whatever Hinata has Neji has it, does it better, and has more of it (this does not include womanly features…>_>). Neji is considered a natural genius of the Hyuuga clan far surpassing what a member of the Branch Family should be capable of according to the Main Branch. For example, unlike Hinata, Neji can see the 361 chakra points above the “inner coil system” which if pressed correctly allows him to control the flow of his opponent’s chakra. He can also surround himself in chakra using the Heavenly Spin blocking almost any attack. Damn you Neji! >_<
What, you want me to say more? There’s nothing else to say. She has weapons and amazing accuracy but no one sucks so much to get defetaed by kunais and shit except for one person…hmmm…who did she defeat? Oh yeah, HERSELF! Only she would suck enough to get offed by TenTen! Ja, I know Hidan was killed by an array of explosive tags but that was planned and Shikamrau is a genius. All TenTen does is throw weapons and pray that it hits. She’s a genius of uselessness! She’s kinda cute though. -_-
Rock Lee: SPIRIT SENSE ON!!! O_O Lol, that was a filler don’t worry about it. ^^ Rock Lee is very much limited in the arts of the shinobi to the point of using taijutsu and only taijutsu. As a result of training in that one style, also Strong Fist like Gai, for the entirety of his life he has nearly perfected it. Lee has insane speed and strength compared to many of his peers because of his extremely tough training. Gai has gone as far as to call Rock Lee a “genius of hard work” recognizing his tenacity to become a famous shinobi who only uses taijutsu. Rock Lee trains with weights and when taken off his speed drastically increases to the point where he can vanish from your sight. On top of all that Lee is a naturally born master of the ‘Drunken Fist’. When given alcohol he goes into a drunken stupor of weird attack patterns that throws the enemy off. Last but not least Lee is able to open all the Gates up to the 5th one.
Kakashi: Oh boy here we go… Hatake Kakashi; the most overrated loved copy cat ninja in the ‘Naruto’ world. A genius I must say for becoming a Jounin at the age of 13. He has so much to offer I’m just going to get it all out the way. Kakashi has 4 (fire shown in the anime) of the 5 elements at his disposal and knows over 1,000 jutsus including the rasengan and raikiri. He posseses the intellect comparable to that of Shikamaru, a keen nose almost on par with Kiba, and superb control of his Sharingan for a non-Uchiha. He has developed his Sharingan into the Mangekyou Sharingan allowing him to warp objects, people, and even explosions into another dimension. Though use of the Sharingan drastically drains his chakra reserves much faster than it would for a Uchiha. 😛 He has a summoning pact with nin-dogs who he uses on occasion for battle and tracking. Kakashi is Hokage material, fast, strong, smart, skilled, yada yada yada…-_- He’d be dead right now if Nagato didn’t pussy out at the end of the arc…>_>
Uzumaki Naruto: Yes, he deserves his last name in there. 😉 Sage+Kyubi chakra…nuff’ said! Lol, aright let’s get it all out there. Naruto holds inside of him the 9 tailed Kyuubi and a near endless supply of chakra as a result. Though drawing out that chakra risks losing control and harm to his body. A knucklehead ninja he doesn’t know the meaning of giving up and as a result has been labeled as a “proud failure” for getting up no matter how many times he falls. That attitude has seen Naruto through to learn incredible jutsu like the Kage Bushin at the age of 13, Rasengan, Rasenshuriken,Kuchiyose no Jutsu (Summoning) of Gamabunta, and Sage Mode. He even knows how to control small amounts of his Kyubi chakra and recently we saw a mix of Sage/Kyubi chakra when he got pissed. +_+ Naruto is a genius in his own right when it comes to fighting outsmarting superior opponents numerous times (Kiba, Neji, Kabuto, Pein) with his unique strategies. Last but not least Naruto always has his secret weapon Sexy No Jutsu which never fails to impress me! ^_^
Sakura: Useless Ninja #4! No wait, I’m sorry I had a flashback to 3 years ago. *shudders* Alright, no Sakura bashing I promised myself. 🙂 Sakura was trained under both Kakashi and Tsunade to become a great ninja like two other special shinobi on her team. At first she was only notable for her high intellect, affinity to genjutsu, and great chakra control but she needed a boost in power to fight in combat. She got that major boost in power training under Tsunade’s tutelage (sounds dirty I know 😉 ) for 2 1/2 years. During the training she was taught to dodge like a medical nin and never to get hit. Thanks to the training Sakura has learned to read and predict her opponent’s movements in order to avoid being hit. She gained Tsunade’s strong punches where she builds up and releases chakra in her feet and hands. Last but least Sakura was trained heavily in medical jutsu taking advantage of her fine chakra control. Sakura is now one of the best medical nins in Konoha and Chiyo even praised Tsuande’s pupil for her medical prowess.
Uchiha Sasuke: Naruto got the last name I think his rival deserves one too. 😛 Sasuke is regarded as a genius even amongst the elite Uchiha standards. He graduated at the top of his class easily outperforming the rest of his peers. Sasuke’s main weapon is of course his cheap ass wonderful Sharingan which allows him to put his enemies in slow mo, copy their moves perfectly after only seeing them once, and predict their movements. He’s also extremely well versed in genjutsu shown when he was able to break Itachi’s Tsukoyomi without the MS and put Manda under genjutsu without any chakra left…now that’s just amazing not to mention he summoned Manda with no chakra left. O_O After Itachi’s death Sasuke’s Sharingan developed into a Mangekyou Sharingan with his powers transfered in there. Itachi transferred all of his eye techs into Sasuke giving him Amaterasu, Tsukoyomi, and Susano’o. Sasuke has made amazing progress with these techniques in a short period of time able to cover and manipulate the shape of Amaterasu around the protective shield of Susano’o. Shi even remarked he may have better control over it than Itachi did.
Sai: The newest member to Team 7 he was a former member of ROOT at such a young age proving his skill. Danzou remarked that Sai was stronger than anybody in his generation that lived in the village and he was the same age as Naruto, which is the reason why he was assigned to Team 7. That can go up for debate. ~_~ Sai’s weapon is art or his ability to put chakra into his drawings and make them come alive. His drawings can be used for offense, scouting, flying, defense, cloning, and…drawing I suppose…o_o His greatest weapon though has to be that washboard of a stomach. I wouldn’t approach him for a fight unless I had a spare shirt.
Jiraiya: R.I.P. Ero-Senin… Jiraiya, one of the legendary 3 sanin an immensely powerful ninja in all areas. Jiraiya was originally requested to be Hokage because he was the strongest in the village but he denied the position to continue his free wanderings and spying on Akatsuki. Superb in taijutsu, ninjutsu, and with Pa and Ma frogs’ help in Sage Mode genjutsu too. In Sage Mode Jiraiya is at his strongest and fastest defeating 3 of Pein’s body with no information beforehand. Pein stated himself that had Jiraiya known his secret he would have been defeated. Jiraiya also had a pact with the toads enabling him to summon Gamabunta and a variety of other toads. Jiraya liked to utilize his hair alot in offense and defense. I wonder what shampoo he used. @_@
Orochimaru: Sasuke is to Naruto as Orochimaru is to Jiraiya. Alright now that you know the history I don’t have to go into the back story. Orochimaru is extremely strong evident enough in being one the 3 Legendary Sanin. He was able to fight on equal ground with a 4 tails Kyuubi Naruto in a weakened body near its limit. In his quest to learn every jutsu in the world he has obtained a vast arsenal of jutsu both common and forbidden. One of his more known ones is the immortality jutsu or ‘Living Corpse Reincarnation’ jutsu he uses to stay alive and young by switching bodies every three years. Another formidable forbidden jutsu he’s used is the ‘Impure World Resurrection’ allowing him to resurrect anyone from the dead and fight under his complete command. As he did raise the first two Hokages it’s presumably possible he could raise any dead character in the manga to fight for him. Then there are the snake techniques which makes perfect sense because underneath it all Orochimaru is just an ugly giant ass snake.
Kabuchimaru: How you may ask is it that Kabuchimaru is in this tournament when Orochimaru is alive and well in this tournament as well? Simple, because I want to pit the new Kabuto up against his former master. He said he wanted surpass him right so now’s his chance. Besides people would complain if Kabuchimaru wasn’t in the post. Then if I took Orochimaru out and just put in Kabuchimaru the die hard Orochimaru fans would be all “boo-hoo”. Why am I wasting my time explaining this? So put Kabuto with his amazing healing abilities and medical knowledge together with Orochimaru and what do you get? You get a badass baddie that’s what you get! Does that surpass Orochimaru though? Last time we checked Kabuto was having trouble stopping his own body from being taken over.
Itachi: Yeah of course the Uchiha’s golden boy is here. -_- Let’s get this over with shall we? I’ll be generous and say this is Itachi pre-sickness but of course we don’t know his abilities back then nor do we know how long he’s been sick. Have at it all you assumption whores out there! 😀 What we do know though is that Itachi bested Deidara, Sasuke, Naruo, Kakashi, Kurenai, and Orochimaru at different times in the story line. Those are very formidable ninja and for one person to do all that is a quite the feat. The only battle he lost is against Sasuke and he planned to die. Itachi is a master of genjutsu and his Mangekyou Sharingan making good use of Susano’o, Tsukoyomi, and Amaterasu all in one battle. Itachi’s hand seals were faster than Kakashi’s and Sasuke’s Sharingans could keep up with. Kisame a very formidable ninja even showed anxiety around Itachi whenever he got angry. Itachi thinks of himself as God…>_>
Tsume: Just like her son Kiba she has a faithful companion by her side at all times and his name is Kuromaru; a big ass canine that looks like a wolf with an eye patch over its right eye and it can talk! O_O I’m not surprised it can talk I’m worried it has some kind of doujutsu! >< Anyway, Tsume works with Kuromaru to do combination attacks including ‘Dual Pierce Fang’ which she used on one of Pein’s bodies. Of course it turned out to just be a corpse but she tried.
Hiashi: Head of the Hyuuga Clan and father of Hinata. He is well versed in the techniques of the Hyuuga Clan of course since he belongs to the Main Branch. He posseses the Byakugan and the same near 360 degree view as all members of the clan. Like Neji he is able to perform the Heavenly Spin and dispatched a couple of shonbi back in the Sound Invasion doing so.
Shibi: Alright, honestly we haven’t seen this dude fight but he’s just to cool to leave out and all the other moms and dads are here…>_> Let’s just rightfully assume he uses the bugs the same way Shino does but is better at it… We know his bugs can suck poison out of people’s body as he did it for his son and can eat paper as they did Konan’s jutsu.
Shikaku: Head of the Nara Clan he’s mastered the manipulation of shadows in various ways. He can use the ‘Shadown Neck Bind Technique’ on 4 enemies at once as shown back in the Sound Invasion. He also constantly beats his son Shikamaru at Shougi (Chess?) which shows he’s a clever strategist.
Inoichi: Unlike his useless daughter he knows how to use the ‘Mind Body Disturbance Technique’ allowing him to confuse his opponents into attacking each other and lose control of their own body. He is also an expert mind reader being able to quickly transverse someone’s mind removing and avoiding traps.
Chouza: As head of the Akimichi Clan not only can he do the partial size technique like his son Chouji, but the full size allowing himself to grow into a giant and tower over his enemies. He heavily damaged Asura Path with one partially sized punch.
Anbu: Useless Ninjas #4 and up! Last but not least just like the Samurai we had to let the Anbu enter this tournament because…they’re just so damn useless! 😄 The Anbu may suck ass individually but let’s see how they fair in large numbers. They are the only ones in this tournament allowed to attack in groups. Remember folks, never underestimate the power of useless people in large numbers! Maybe I should let Ino and Tenten join this group. -_-
Alright that’s the list and yes it took forever to put it all together but it’s done. ^(~_~)^ Now you can finally go ahead and cast your votes for who you think should win this tournament! Remember the poll votes will automatically determine the #1 spot to move on to the next round. Debate of who you think can take on the winner in the polls will help determine the #2 spot to move to the next round. Your top 10 lists will determine spots 3-10 and influence who takes spot #2.
