The Deadly Game
Final Battle: How it Ends
Naruto rushed at Nightmare and landed a powerful kick into his stomach. Nightmare quickly recovered and crashed his claw hand across Naruto's back sending Naruto sprawling. Naruto somersaulted, landed on his feet, and came back at Nightmare with a raised kunai. Naruto's kunai and Nightmare's sword deflected each other, and the two warriors once again faced each other. "I'm gonna finish this right here and now!" Naruto shouted, "SHADOW CLONE JUTSU!" Five Naruto shadow clones appeared and rushed at Nightmare. Nightmare managed to defeat two of the shadow clones but the other three knocked him backwards. The real Naruto came down from the sky and nailed Nightmare with a powerful Rasengan. There was a huge explosion and the other three shadow clones popped. Naruto emerged from the smoke and faced back into it. He couldn't see Nightmare through the smoke, but he could hear Nightmare roaring from inside the cloud.
Sasuke was clashing with Raphael. Kunai met rapier as Raphael desperately struggled to bring down the superior ninja. Despite his rage at seeing his beloved Amy struck down by Hilde, Sasuke was to powerful for him. He tried one last time to desperately strike for Sasuke's head, but Sasuke blocked it with his kunai and kicked Raphael back several feet. "You're finished!" Sasuke declared, "Fire style: Dragon Fire Jutsu!" Sasuke shouted firing a stream of fire from his mouth. The Fire engulfed Raphael.
"No! Amyyyyy!" With that the monster Raphael vanished, engulfed by Sasuke's fire. Just then, Nightmare's roaring caught Sasuke's ear.
"Darn it, looks like Naruto's made him mad," Sasuke declared looking at the smoke. Down in the arena below, all of the warriors, including Cervantes, had stopped fighting to look at the source of the noise being made by the enraged Nightmare.
"What's going on up there?" Shikamaru asked, "Neji?"
"Something's happening to Nightmare," Neji declared using his Byakugan to peer through the smoke, "his chakra is becoming far more intense!"
Suddenly, the smoke blew away to reveal that Nightmare had transformed into a terrible looking monster! He had evolved into Night Terror! "Ah man," Naruto exclaimed, "what happened!?"
"Naruto!" Sasuke shouted, "watch out!" Night Terror rushed at Naruto and pounded him hard in the stomach! Naruto went rolling back towards the edge of the arena. He stuck his kunai into the ground and managed to stop himself just before he flew off of the arena wall! "Naruto!" Sasuke shouted erupting with black chakra as he released his curse mark! "That's enough, I'm ending this right here and now!" Sasuke shouted forming a black ball of lightning chakra, "CHIDORI!" he shouted running at Night Terror with the Chidori held high. Suddenly, the monster sprouted wings! He flew cleanly over Sasuke's attack. Sasuke recovered and jumped to finish the job, but Night Terror once again dodged him and the Chidori struck the arena wall! "What's going on!?" Sasuke shouted.
"You won't win!" Naruto shouted erupting with red chakra as the Nine Tail Fox unleashed its destructive power, "MULTI SHADOW CLONE JUTSU!" Naruto shouted forming hundreds of shadow clones that surrounded Night Terror. The Shadow Clones began a ferocious attack on the monster managing to strike him several times, but Night Terror also blew away a lot of clones. Night Terror raised his head and let out a terrible roar. The vibrations of the roar caused many of the remaining Shadow Clones to pop! Suddenly, a red glow appeared in the smoke that had been left by the clones! Naruto rushed from the smoke carrying a giant red Rasengan! Night Terror flapped his wings to dodge, but then let out a roar of pain as Cassandra's shield flew in from nowhere cleaving off one of his wings! Sasuke quickly cut off the other with a Chidori. Night Terror was defenseless! "YOU'RE FINISHED! RASENGAN!"
The attack hit it's mark. Night Terror flew backwards and slammed into Cervantes destroying them both! "Got him!" Cassandra shouted jumping for joy.
"Phew, that was way to close," sighed Shikamaru kneeling down.
"Yahoo!" shouted Naruto, "we did it!"
"Hey Naruto, Sasuke," Kakashi's voice rang out. Naruto and Sasuke looked over and saw Kakashi and the rest of the leaf ninja who had been captured standing on the wall.
"We'd better get going. We need to get back to the village," declared Kakashi.
"Nightmare opened the portal that led you to this world," declared Siegfried, "the monster is a part of me. So now I will open a portal that will allow you to return home."
"Alright!" Naruto shouted, "we're going home!"
Siegfried sat on the ground for a couple of moments, then a giant blue portal appeared behind him. Through the portal, Naruto could see the Hidden Leaf Village. "Well, guess this is good bye," Naruto declared turning to face Cassandra, "I guess we're supposed to… I dunno shake hands or some…" He was cut off as Cassandra threw her arms around him and gave him a tight hug.
"Thank you Naruto for everything," Cassandra declared releasing him as Sophitia put her hand on Cassandra's shoulder.
"Anytime!" Naruto declared giving Cassandra a thumbs up and smiling.
"Hey Naruto!" Sakura shouted from behind. Naruto looked to see that his friends were all stepping through the portal, "you better come on or you're gonna be left behind!"
"Hey wait for me!" Naruto shouted running after his friends and still waving at Cassandra and Hilde, "see you guys around!" Naruto shouted jumping through the portal. Cassandra couldn't help but laugh at Naruto's frantic display.
"I hope so," she said smiling as her new friend disappeared.
"Let's go home," Sophitia ordered as the warriors paths separated once again. High upon a hill, a cursed sword stood, imbedded into the ground, watching the heroes separate through it's wicked eye. A purple armored hand reached out and pulled the blade from it's resting place. Nightmare glared down at his departing, victorious enemies and let out an evil laugh.
"Next time, you will all die!"
