Demonic Devil ~~ Chapter 1
Unknown-nin345: Here's something that I came up with after playing Devil May Cry 3 (SUPREMELY AWESOME GAME!). I read some of the other DMC-Naruto crossovers and I'm pretty sure that what I'm doing is different than what other people have done. The story starts just after Neji uses his Hakke Rokujuuyonshou (Eight divination signs, sixty-four palms of the hand) technique on Naruto.
"Hi there,"—Normal speaking.
'Goodbye,'—Thoughts/Writing in notes & letters.
'Let the bodies hit the floor,'—Bijuu thoughts/mental communication.
"Nothing wrong with death,'—Bijuu speech in the real world.
"Let's get this party started!"—Devil Trigger form speech.
Pairing: Naruto x Hinata x Anko x Tayuya x Isaribi.
Summary: Everybody has a breaking point. A limit to how much they can stand before a trigger goes off in them. Naruto discovers his when Neji begins to insult him and Hinata. It's time to Party!
"Sixty-four hakke!" shouted a brown-haired, white-eyed boy as he threw his palms forward. His opponent, a blonde-haired blue-eyed boy with whisker-marked cheeks, cried out in pain as he flew backwards and rolled on the ground a couple feet. They were Hyuuga Neji, prodigy of the Hyuuga Clan, and Uzumaki Naruto, Jinchuuriki of the Kyuubi no Kitsune, respectively. Both were genin of Konohagakure and were competing in the third part of the Chunin Exam.
Neji sneered at the slightly shaking form of the blonde who was trying to push himself back to his feet as he said, "This is absolutely pathetic. Someone such as you would never become Hokage; your dream is absolute foolishness. The Fate that is waiting for you is death, not to become Hokage. It's a wonder that there are even people who like you, like my worthless cousin." By this point, Naruto had completely frozen and was beginning to feel a great amount of anger slowly rise up inside him. Neji's next sentence drove him over the proverbial edge, "Losers like the two of you shouldn't even bother trying to fight against what fate has preordained. I still have trouble believing that Hinata-sama thought she could actually amount to some-"
"Shut up," Naruto interrupted in a deathly calm voice. To the amazement of everyone gathered he managed to get a knee underneath him as he said, "I don't care if you insult me or my dream. It's happened plenty of times before now." He slowly pushed himself up to a standing position but kept his head bowed, his bangs concealing his face from view as he continued, "But never, and I mean fucking never, insult someone who is willing to try to improve their selves in front of me. Especially Hinata! Someone who is willing to get back up after being beaten down like she was should never endure anyone's scorn. Even more so when it was her own fucking cousin who provided the beat down and then continued to insult her."
Neji's sneer grew in ferocity, "Someone like you could never understand what it's like to be branded with a seal you can never escape." He was once again cut off a blood-red chakra erupted from, and bonfired around, Naruto. Every Hyuuga in the vicinity who currently was using their Byakugan's, including Neji, were astonished when they saw that all of the blonde's tenketsu were being forcibly opened.
But just as quickly as it came, the red chakra seeped back into Naruto. "No, Neji. I understand more than anyone else just what you're talking about. But I'm not going to listen to your shit anymore," as he was speaking in his newly acquired deathly calm tone, he began to pulse with a bright white light. "So either shut the fuck up or I'm going to make you," he finished as he raised his glowing blue eyes to stare penetratingly into Neji's. "Let's get this party started." With that a bright red light burst from Naruto, blinding everyone in the stadium. When they all could see again, some gasped in amazement at the change that Naruto just went through while many of the women in the stands had a different reaction.
Naruto had shot up in height; whereas before he been a measly (for his age of fourteen years) 4'11'', now he stood at an impressive height of 5'9''. His muscle mass had also increased leaving his defined muscles for everyone to see (in the stands, women aged in their mid-teens to low-20's were organizing a Naruto fan club). His skin had turned a dull orange color and appeared to now be pebble-y, like a lizard's skin. His feet tore out of his sandals and seemed to become more beast-like in appearance with a similar occurrence happening with his hands. But the most startling change was Naruto's head; it had now become remarkably similar to a fox's head, complete with elongated snout and vulpine ears, with some kind of helmet that had slots open for his ears and extended down his jawline (think a Halo Elite's helmet, but with slots for ears). Finishing off his new physical change was his burning crimson eyes.
Also, on his back rested a black-as-night zwheihander (blade is 5 feet and the hilt is 1 foot and is positioned diagonally) that looked normal enough except for where the blade met the hilt: a demonic-looking, snarling visage of a fox's face rested there with glowing red eyes that seemed to glare at everything around it. Naruto's clothing had also changed; now he was clothed in black jacket with blood-red tribal designs running across the cloth, with the hem of the jacket splitting into three different sections that braided into what might have been mistaken a tails (and no, he doesn't have a shirt on). On his legs were red pants that had similar tribal designs as the shirt, only in black, while shiny-onyx combat boots covered his feet.
Naruto looked himself over in a small amount of amazement before he picked up a medium-sized rock from the ground and crushed it into powder with little effort on his part. He grinned ferally at the suddenly-nervous Neji. "Well, looks like I just got an upgrade," he said conversationally, his voice holding an eerie echoing quality to it that sounded at odds with his appearance.
Meanwhile, up in the Kage Booth, both Kages were surprised at the transformation that Naruto just went through. No conversation was made as each was busy with his own thoughts.
'It would seem that another Descendent of Sparda walks among us,' were the thoughts of the Sandaime Hokage of Konohagakure, Sarutobi Hiruzen. 'I guess Minato didn't lie when he told me the legend of Sparda and how he might be descended from one of Sparda's sons.'
'That boy, I must have him! With his blood or body, I'll finally be able to complete my work on replicating the legendary Devil Trigger,' thought the disguised Otokage of Otogakure, Orochimaru of the Sanin, with a disturbing mental chuckle.
Back down in the arena, Naruto grasped the hilt of his zwheihander and suddenly felt a brief burst of knowledge flow into his mind. With his feral grin still in place, Naruto swung the large sword off of his back and held it pointed towards the other genin.
"Let me show you a little something Hyuuga-teme!" Naruto shouted before he began spinning the zwheihander over his head. Bright blue flames began to gather on the sword before the red eyes of the fox flashed, Naruto took this as his signal and spun while slashing at Neji.
A crescent of the blue flame sped towards the Hyuuga prodigy who spun like a top while emitting chakra from his body as he shouted "Kaiten!" A blue sphere sprung up around the white-eyed boy that managed to absorb most of the damage from the attack.
By the time Neji had finished his spin; Naruto had leapt high into the air and was intent on slamming his large sword down onto his opponent. The Hyuuga prodigy managed to get out of the way of the downward slash, but was drained from using the Kaiten for the second time during the match along with his other techniques and as such, was unable to get out of the way in time for Naruto's follow-up attack. With a gut-wrenching squelch of blade piercing body, the zwheihander stabbed into Neji's left shoulder, causing the boy to yell from the pain caused.
After the teen's yell had died down, the red-eyed half-devil leaned in close to Neji's ear and asked in a low voice, "Did you know that ever since that day when Hinata watched her father use the curse seal on your father, that she wanted to forever change the Hyuuga clan and get rid of the seal along with the seperation of branch and main family? It's her dream to do that when she becomes the head of the Hyuuga's, but in order to get there, she's going to need help and support to get stronger. Think on that Hyuuga Neji."
Without giving the white-eyed boy a chance to respond, Naruto deftly pulled his blade from Neji's body, blood spurting out but missing Naruto for some reason, and spun away from the white-eyed boy, flinging the blood from his sword. Neji slumped to the ground as unconsciousness claimed him.
Naruto placed his sword on his back and took a couple steps forward before he looked back at the proctor and said, "He should be fine. I made sure not to hit anything vital." As he finished his statement, Naruto was consumed by another flash of red light. The light died down and revealed a new Naruto.
This Naruto's hair color was now a shining silver with it hanging in a messy fashion that had grown out to reach his shoulders (a/n: if you need some help visualizing, think of Dante's hairstyle in Devil May Cry 3). His clothing stayed the same, proudly revealing the seal that contained the Kyuubi no Kitsune on his six-pack stomach for the world to see. His height shrunk down to 5'6'' while his eyes changed back to their normal sapphire blue.
The silver-haired half-devil continued his march to the stairs, ignoring the shout that he was the winner as well as the silence that permeated the arena. Halfway up to the competitors' box, Naruto pulled out a slip of paper and wrote something on it. He then called up a Kage Bushin that quickly transformed into a white mouse, already aware of what its creator had in mind. As he continued on his way to the competitor's box, he thought on what his transformation, along with a certain conversation he had, had changed his outlook on.
- (With the Kage Bushin) -
Immediately after receiving the note from his creator, Mouse Naruto sped into a nearby mouse hole and made his way up to the stands were the spectators sat. Luck was with the Kage Bushin as he arrived not far from where Hinata was sitting. Mouse Naruto's eyes widened, though, when he saw who was sitting next to the Hyuuga heiress. The super sexy voluptuous Snake Mistress of Konoha: Mitarashi Anko.
Mouse Naruto took a tiny gulp to steel itself and gather its courage before it scampered to Hinata's legs. Mouse Naruto then began to speedily climb up Hinata's pant leg and was eternally grateful that neither Hinata nor Anko were afraid of mice.
Of course, Hinata didn't even notice Mouse Naruto climb up her leg until she heard a small squeak come from her lap. She looked down and saw a tiny white mouse with sapphire blue eyes hold a tiny folded note out towards her.
"Is that for me little one?" the lavender-eyed girl asked as Anko looked on in a small amount of curiosity before the brown-eyed woman's eyes widened in recognition as a smirk settled on her face. Mouse Naruto meanwhile, nodded his head and held out the note to Hinata.
Hinata accepted it and read the following:
Several recent events, my fight with Neji-teme included, have…opened my eyes, shall we say, to certain things around me. One of those things…well, I'm going to cut right to the point since I'm getting nervous just writing this. Hyuuga Hinata, once the Chunin Exams are all over with, would like to go out on a date with me? If yes, then nod to the mouse (it's a kage bushin) and we'll work out a date and time later. If not, then simply hand the note back to the mouse. I won't hate you or think any worse of you if you do say no, so no pressure.
Hinata blushed prettily at what the note said while Anko, who had been reading it over the younger girl's shoulder, looked down at the mouse and asked, "Do you think I could tag along?"
Hinata looked up at the older woman in slight shock; sure the lavender-eyed girl knew Anko (who was only five years older than the thirteen-year-old girl) only because she had showed up with Kurenai at Team 8's practices every now and then, but Hinata was left stumped at how Naruto might know the dango-loving woman.
Meanwhile, Mouse Naruto shrugged and held up a finger before his eyes glazed over slightly. After a minute he motioned for the note and, using his chakra, wrote, 'Sure, but no antagonizing anyone (Anko pouted at that part) and be sure to wear something nice.' Mouse Naruto then turned his attention to Hinata and cocked his head to the side as he waited for her answer.
After a minute of silent debate, Hinata nodded her head. Mouse Naruto saluted and disappeared in a puff of smoke.
Once the last dregs of smoke disappeared, Hinata looked over at Anko and asked, "Anko-san, how do you know Naruto-kun?"
Anko smiled lightly at the memory of when she had first met the former blonde before she said, "Well, I first met him when he saved something just as important as my life…my virginity." At Hinata's gasp, Anko nodded and continued, "Yeah. I had been out drinking one night with Kure-chan and was walking home by myself when I was stopped by these three drunks who thought that they could have some 'fun' with the 'snake-whore'. Since I was only a recently promoted chunin and slightly drunk, I was powerless to stop them. They had just ripped off the last of my clothing and were groping me while preparing to remove their pants when Naruto-kun showed up." She chuckled as she remembered what happened next, "He came out of nowhere launched a kick straight into one of the bastards' balls before turning to the next one and hit him in the same spot with a block of wood that he had picked up somewhere. Once he saw that his two buddies were put down easily the last tried run away, only to trip on his pants. Naruto-kun walked over to him and found a still intact wine-bottle nearby which he then shoved up that poor sap's asshole! And Naruto-kun was only eleven at the time!" She burst out laughing at that point while Hinata giggled at the justice extracted by her- by Naruto-kun.
Anko sighed and said, "Ever since then, Naruto-kun and I would meet up every now and then to usually eat dango. Eventually he came up with the idea for his Oiroke no jutsu and I decided to help him out with it. Until he could get a passable form of a woman, I modeled for him, but once he looked mostly like a girl, I decided to take him to the onsen so he could get a more in depth look at a woman's naked body." She paused as the smallest of blushes stole across her cheeks, "Naruto-kun also gave me my first kiss, even if it was only a friendly one on the cheek."
Hinata nodded (a bright blush on her face at the thought of Naruto seeing her naked) since something similar had happened to her; she had been out in a flower field gathering flowers when she cut one of her fingers on a thorn from a rose's stem. Naruto had shown up out of nowhere and had bandaged the wound before leaving after giving her a kiss on the lavender-eyed girl's cheek. Hinata decided to tell this tale to Anko, who only nodded with a smile while saying that it sounded like something that Naruto would do.
- (Back with Naruto) -
The silver-haired boy arrived in the booth just as Mouse Naruto dispersed, causing a happy smile to spread across his face. However this smile was wiped off when he felt a pulse of something that he couldn't describe. He looked over the competitors and felt the feeling strengthen when his eyes landed on the red-haired Suna-nin.
Just then the Proctor shouted, "Will Sabaku no Gaara and Uchiha Sasuke please report to the arena!"
Gaara vanished in a swirl of sand while Naruto walked over to, and leaned on, the railing as he ignored the looks he was getting from the other competitors. 'What was that I felt just now?' he asked himself, 'It felt similar to that time when I met Kyuubi-ue, but different at the same time.'
'That would be because that boy also contains a demon Naruto,' said a seductive female voice from inside his head.
'What do you mean Kyuubi-ue?' Naruto asked with a small frown. He had met the Kyuubi during the time he had been unconscious after summoning Gamabunta and then rode on the giant toad for nearly a whole day. After their first discussion, the Kyuubi decided to switch to her human form: a fiery-orange-haired woman with an absolutely perfect body, large bouncy DD-cup breasts, and ass that one could watch for hours without growing bored.
At the beginning, there had been a major problem about this; namely Kyuubi would never, for any reason, clothe herself in any way. Thus, Naruto was constantly submitted to the sight of a naked woman with fox ears and tails, which had the effect of increasing the orange-haired woman's exoticness. After a while, though, Naruto got used to the sight somewhat, meaning that he no longer passed out with a nosebleed.
'What I mean, Naruto, is that the Suna boy contains the Ichibi. A desert spirit that can control sand and, to some degree, wind,' the fox-woman explained. Her voice turned to a concerned nature as she continued, 'But, I've met containers for Shukaku before now, and none of them were as psychotic and blood-crazed as that kid. I'm worried that the seal might be faulty or there might be a third spirit sealed inside the boy that could be driving the boy crazy.'
Meanwhile the Proctor, who had been looking down at his watch, saw that the allotted time was up for the Uchiha to arrive. He looked up at the crowd and shouted, "Since Uchiha Sasuke has not arrived to participate in his match, as ordered to by the Hokage, he is hereby disqualified from the Chunin Exams! Sabaku no Gaara is the winner by default!"
This statement brought much anger and shouting from the civilians in the stands until Sarutobi stood and let loose a blast of Killing Intent to quiet the crowd. "Enough! Just because Uchiha Sasuke is the last loyal member of his clan does not give him special privileges. As a shinobi of Konoha he is expected to follow his orders, ones that I gave him, and follow those instructions to the letter! If he is late to something as important as this and we let him off without punishment then who knows what else he would choose to be late to!" With that, the Sandaime of Konoha returned to his seat and rubbed his forehead in irritation.
The disguised Orochimaru looked over at Sarutobi with surprise evident on his masked face as he said, "I find myself surprised at your choice of action Hokage-san. From what I've heard many of the people gathered here today were hoping to witness the Uchiha boy battle my son."
The Sandaime Fire Shadow narrowed his eyes slightly as he responded, "If I were to show that one genin was able to get away with something like this simply because he's one of the last of the clan while any other person would have been disqualified anyway, what would that say about my leadership capabilities. And besides," Sarutobi continued, "Did you not wish to execute an entire team once simply because one of their members was a minute late to his match?"
The false Kazekage smiled, "That's because it was in my village that the incident occurred. Here I have very little power to order anything."
Sarutobi nodded, "Very well. Let us go back to enjoying the matches Kazekage-san." Orochimaru-in-disguise nodded and both turned their attention back to the arena floor where the fight between Shino and Kankurou was taking place.
Back in the competitors' box, meanwhile, Naruto was continuing his discussion with Kyuubi as Shino's and Kankurou's fight took place.
'Kyuubi-ue, do know anything about what's just happened to me during my fight with Hyuuga-teme?'
'It would seem, Naruto, that you are a descendent of a demon know as Sparda,' the vixen in the former-blonde's head replied. Sensing her container's confusion she elaborated, 'Millennia ago, a demon known as Sparda rebelled against Mundus, the King of Demons back at that period of time, and sealed the demon world off from the human world. Sparda then settled down with a human wife and had two sons: Dante and Vergil, along with another named Nero. Dante and Nero went on to protect the human world while Vergil attempted to gain the powers of their father for reasons he never really revealed. Each of the three brothers had the ability to absorb a demon's soul and transform it into a weapon that they called 'Devil Arms'.'
'Ne, Kyuubi-ue, do you think that I'll also be able to do that?' Naruto asked with a hopeful smirk.
The vixen just giggled before she said, 'Of course you can do it. In fact, you've already done it. Do you think that sword is just for decoration?'
Naruto lifted the zwhiehander off his back and held it in front of him as he replied, 'So this is your Devil Arm? How could I make it if you're still…?' When his train of thought hit that particular point, the teen slapped his forehead, 'Never mind. So, do you think I'd be able to do the same with Gaara's demon?'
'I think it would be best if you asked right now Naruto. It'd be best to avoid any future complications,' the Kyuubi advised.
Naruto nodded and made his way over to where the two Suna siblings were standing. Both turned to face him; Gaara indifferently and Temari a little fearfully. The silver-haired half-devil nodded to both and began speaking, "I have a proposition for you Gaara-san, one that may aid in alleviating the voices within your head."
The redhead narrowed his eyes as he asked, "What are you talking about?"
Naruto's own eyes narrowed as he irately said, "I'm talking about the fact that the Ichibi no Shukaku is sealed within you and is slowly driving you to insanity." Temari gasped while Gaara subtly shifted his stance. Naruto waved a calm hand as he said, "Quit your worrying you two, I'm not going to kill him. Geez."
"How do you know?" Gaara whispered.
Naruto's eyes cut over to Shikamaru. "I assume you've already figured it out that little secret about me Shika?" he questioned the lazy Nara.
Shikamaru simply nodded his head, "I figured it out when the red chakra sprung up around you down in the arena. Before I only had suspicions, but I figured it'd be too troublesome to worry about since you hadn't gone on a rampage yet."
Naruto smiled, "You know that brain's gonna get you killed one of these days Shika." The Nara only grunted, making the former-blonde roll his eyes. Naruto turned his attention back to the Suna-nin and said, "I know about your condition, Brother Ichi, simply because I carry the Kyuubi no Kitsune."
Temari fearfully took a step as if she expected Naruto to suddenly kill her right then and there. "How come you're not insane?" she question with a small shout.
Naruto rolled his eyes in exasperation as he said, "Insane is one of those things that's based on perception lady. But unlike your brother here, whose seal is either faulty or there's more than just Shukaku within him, my seal was designed by the best of the best and I'm pretty sure that the only other entity within my head is a vixen that likes to tease me with the sight of her naked body." He shrugged at Temari's look, "Hey, I've told her to try to clothe herself numerous times, but she just says, and I quote: 'I like to feel the wind tickle my tits and pussy'."
"What is your proposition Uzumaki?" Gaara interrupted, not in the least bit flustered by the innuendo unlike his beet-red sister.
Naruto snapped his fingers in remembrance, "Ah, yes, the proposition. You see, during my match with Hyuuga-teme, I apparently awoke my long-dormant kekkai genkai. Now, aside from my changed appearance and what you saw down in the arena, I can also absorb the souls of demons." He paused to let that statement sink in. "As such, I can free Gaara of his curse of being a Jinchuuriki. However, I'd need to defeat the Ichibi in combat in order to absorb the soul."
'No! Do not listen to him! He is lying and will betray you like everyone else has!' Shukaku shouted inside Gaara's head.
Gaara gripped his head in pain from the sudden mental onslaught of images the sand demon sent him about people who had attacked him back in Sunagakure. He was nearly startled from this state when he felt a concerned grip on his arm, looking up the red head saw that Temari was looking at him with concern written all over her face and something clicked inside Gaara.
'No, you're wrong Shukaku,' Gaara argued, fighting back against the influence of the one-tail. 'Temari has never betrayed me and whenever she has been nearby, she has always been concerned about me. I WILL NOT LISTEN TO YOUR LIES ANY LONGER!' With a visible effort, Gaara drove the Ichibi's shouting to the back of his mind. The act left him panting deeply as if he had just ran an incredible distance in a short amount of time.
Temari helped him straighten up from his doubled over state, something that prompted Gaara to give his first grateful look to his sister for the first time in his memory as he said, "Thanks for always being there…nee-chan." Temari was stunned for a couple seconds before she tearfully hugged her little brother.
Gaara tentatively returned the hug and looked back at a softly smiling Naruto. "I would very much like to be rid of the Shukaku, Uzumaki." Naruto simply nodded as Gaara continued, "I believe in instances such as these, one usually offers something in exchange for such an important action," before Naruto could begin to protest Gaara said, "Suna is going to invade Konoha alongside Oto."
This sentence made both Shikamaru and Naruto freeze while down in the arena, Shino was declared the winner after managing to finally have his kikai devour Kankurou's chakra. Both Shino and Kankurou were carted off to the hospital section of the arena; Shino for a minor poison that the make-up-wearing Suna-nin had hit him with, and Kankurou from chakra exhaustion couple with the drain caused by Shino's bugs.
"Will Nara Shikamaru and Sabaku no Temari please report to the arena at this time!" shouted the proctor. Temari left after giving her brother one last glance, riding down on her giant battle fan, while Shikamaru was content to simply forfeit his match. That is, until he felt himself freefalling down to the arena floor before he crashed landed and stared up at the competitors' box, giving Naruto the evil eye.
Naruto turned back to Gaara while the proctor called for the start of the match. "What can you tell me about what the invasion will entail?" the former-blonde asked.
"Originally, the invasion was supposed to begin during mine and the Uchiha's fight, however since the match was cancelled the invasion will start during our match. Outside the village, groups of Suna and Oto-nins are preparing to summon giant snakes to bypass Konoha's walls. There are even Oto and Suna-nin hidden amongst the crowd at this very moment. Finally, I was supposed to be the main heavy hitter by letting Shukaku take control of my body," Gaara explained in his monotone.
"Take control? How would that work?" Naruto asked with a small frown.
"If I ever fall asleep or am knocked unconscious, Shukaku will take over control of my body and summon up enough sand to make a physical representation of its self," Gaara explained. He hesitated before continuing, "There is also something else. Last night, my father, the Kazekage, approached me and explained to me what I would be doing for the invasion. However, I noticed that instead of my father's usual scent of the desert and a faint hint of scorpions; he instead smelled like a snake. Does this mean anything to you?"
Naruto nodded, "Sounds like one of our missing-nin, Orochimaru."
Gaara raised an eyebrow as he said, "That is the name of Otogakure's Kage." At Naruto's incredulous expression the redhead nodded, "For a month up until the start of the Chunin Exams, Orochimaru would visit Suna and speak with my father about plans for the invasion. However after the second exam, my father learned of a rumor that Konoha had its own jinchuuriki and since mine is the lowest of the nine, and by proxy the weakest, my father decided to cancel Suna's part in the invasion."
Naruto raised an eyebrow in amusement, "I guess Orochimaru wasn't too happy about that." The blue-eyed boy then turned his attention to a seemingly random part of the room and asked, "Did you get all that Jii-san?"
A section of the wall shimmered before revealing the form of the Sandaime Hokage of Konoha. The aged leader nodded, "That I did Naruto-kun. This is grave news indeed and it seems like Jiraiya's spy network was correct."
"Ero-sennin? I didn't think he did anything important besides writing those Icha Icha books that you and Kakashi read," Naruto said.
Sarutobi snickered at the name, faintly recalling that Minato had called Jiraiya something similar. "Yes Naruto-kun. Jiraiya's spy network is not only widespread, but extremely efficient at doing its job. The information gathered by Jiraiya's spies has often prevented foolish decisions from being made in the past," the Sandaime informed the new half-devil.
Naruto nodded and asked, "What are we going to do Jii-san?"
Sarutobi fiddled with his pipe in thought before he looked up at Gaara and asked, "Do you plan on participating in the invasion on the side of Suna and Oto Gaara-san?"
The red-haired boy shook his head, "No. Uzumaki is making the effort to help me with Shukaku, something that my home village can never claim to have tried to do. I will aid Konoha in this invasion if Naruto manages to remove my demon."
The Sandaime nodded and looked back at Naruto. "Very well, if you do manage to remove Gaara-san's demon, I want you to keep an eye on the Kage's box during your match. The first second you notice something happening up there, join me. I have a feeling that your new abilities could be of great help against Orochimaru," he ordered. Naruto nodded and snapped off a crisp salute. The Hokage nodded at the both of them and disappeared in a poof of smoke.
"Winner: Sabaku no Temari!" shouted the proctor. The jinchuurikis looked down to see a slightly winded Temari standing over a bleeding, cut Shikamaru with her fan poised to crush the Nara's windpipe. Shikamaru was shipped off to the medical section while Temari made her way back up to the competitors' box.
When she arrived, Gaara nodded and said, "Good job…nee-chan."
The silver-haired teen's eyes widened slightly before she smiled and nodded back at Gaara, "Thanks otouto."
Naruto smiled ferally at Gaara when the Proctor called them down for their match and asked, "Shall we get the party started?" The redhead said nothing, but vanished in a swirl of sand. The blue-eyed boy looked over at Temari and winked at her before back flipping out of the competitors' box, his coattails flapping wildly in the wind. The blue-eyed jinchuuriki landed solidly on his feet and walked forward to stand across from Gaara.
The Proctor looked at them both and after determining that they were ready, brought his hand down with a shout of, "Hajime!" Nobody noticed the swirl of leaves around the two contests until two people appeared between Naruto and Gaara just as the redhead fired his cork at the former-blonde.
The shorter figure screamed in pain before dropping to his knees with his hands covering his 'family jewels'. After everyone got over the shock, they recognized the figures as Hatake Kakashi and Uchiha Sasuke, who was still engaged in his effort to pierce the sound barrier.
Naruto broke down laughing at the sight while the Proctor glared at Kakashi as he said, "Get your student out of the arena Hatake. He was disqualified when he didn't show up on time."
Kakashi's visible eye widened, "What? But Sasuke-kun is…"
"Disqualified," the Proctor flatly stated. "He will not be given special treatment here just because he's the last person of his clan still in Konoha. So get him out of here, we have a match that needs to start."
Kakashi was about to sullenly escort the Uchiha, who had finally stopped screaming, when he noticed Naruto still laughing on the ground. "Wait, who is that supposed to be? I don't remember any of the competitors having a sword like that," the cycloptic-scarecrow said.
The Proctor glanced over at Naruto, who had picked himself up off the ground, and said, "That's your other student Hatake, the one who managed to show up on time and win his match. Of course, you'd know that if you'd bothered to get here on time. Now, for the last time, escort Uchiha Sasuke from the arena."
Sasuke looked up and noticed Naruto standing a little bit away, and after what the Proctor just said registered in Uchiha's addled mind. With a snarl the black-haired boy formed three handseals and thought as he gripped his wrist, 'The dobe can't show me up, I'm the last Uchiha!' A high-pitched warble alerted everyone in the arena to Sasuke's actions as a bright blue ball of lightning formed in the boy's hand.
With a shout of rage the Uchiha rushed at Naruto, who was standing there with not a care in the world. Just as Sasuke's arm was about to pierce him, Naruto spun out of the way and brought his large sword down on the Uchiha's outstretched arm with pinpoint accuracy. The misguided avenger slowed and dropped to his knees as he stared down at his arms, with blood spurting out of where his appendages were now sheared off at the elbows. The shock his mind was currently in was the only thing that prevented him from screaming.
Naruto placed his sword on his back turned towards the two jounin. "You might want to get some medical attention Hatake-san. All that blood spurting out of his arms can't be a good thing," the silver-haired teen stated conversationally.
Kakashi, meanwhile, was stunned at what just occurred between two of his students with the civilians in the crowd mimicking his action (of course, almost all of the ninja were silently cheering at what Naruto just did), and could only ask, "Why did you do that Naruto?"
The former-blonde just shrugged and said, "He attacked me and I defended myself. Surely you didn't expect me to let him hit with what obviously looked an A-rank jutsu similar to your Raikiri, did you?" At his sensei's hesitancy, Naruto snarled, "You really did, didn't you? What kind of fucking sensei lets one of their students attempt to kill the other! Get the fuck out of here and take your fucking boy toy with you." Kakashi silently did so, and disappeared in a poof of smoke with Sasuke.
When they were gone, Naruto turned back to Gaara and said, "Sorry 'bout that. How about we get on with beating the crap out of each other?"
Gaara smirked a little and called forth a large amount of sand from his gourd as he said, "Yes, I think I could greatly enjoy that."
Naruto smirked right back as he grabbed his zweihander and twirled it around his body in a fancy pattern. "Let's rock!"
- (End Chapter One) -
Unknown-nin345: Right then, that's the end of chapter one. I hope you liked it and my original devil trigger for Naruto. I had tried to think up a plausible way for Naruto to meet Anko and came up with his beatdown of the three drunks. I don't think I'll be including Dante or any of the other DMC cast in the fanfic; only stories of their past exploits and probably only two or three of the Game's Devil Arms.
If you tell which three Devil Arm's you'd most like to see, I'll see if it's possible for me to include them.
