Challenges: Xi vs Izumi, Akihiro, Kozan, and Nobu

Post by Ace Trainer » Sat Jun 19, 2021 6:16 pm

The arena has a 25m radius and is mostly comprised of grass land, trees to provide some shelter and texture to the battlefield. However, 5m from the wall surrounding the entire arena is sandy terrain. The arena is marked by a 20m high wall that is built in the shape of a doughnut, the seats are layered with ten rows running along the whole perimeter of the arena. There is a tower that is supported by pillars and columns above the northers side of the stadium, this is where the representatives of other nations are seated. The participants have the own place to wait until their turn, it is at the bottom section of the wall surrounding the battlefield and has a viewing window that allows the participants to watch fighting that take place. Challenger Xi will begin at the eastern most point, standing directly in front of the sand. Izumi will begin at the northern most point, standing directly in front of the sand. Akihiro and Kozan will begin side by side at the eastern most point. Nobu will begin at the southern most point.

First poster has 72 hours to respond, all following posts have 48 hours, with one [1] extension granted upon request. Please ensure you're familiar with the rules for the event. If you're currently in registry, the 72 hours begins once both participants have been approved.

Challenger Xi posts first.

Through one of the entrance gates emerged a rather average looking young man, his left hand rubbing on the back of his unkempt black hair. His dark clothes offset by the tan Iwa flak that he wore proudly as his eyes swept across the rather small arena area. 'Test the genin they said, I it'll be fun they said...' His rhoughts remained his own as let out a light sigh and watched the four genin enter and take their places. Forming a single hand seal now chakra followed throughout his slender frame and into four chakra recieves amongst the sash holding a series of red orbs.

Then like magic four almost seemingly random orbs shook ever so slightly before dislodging themselves from their holders and floated into the air before their user. Each small orb then he to be s foot across as a singular golden eye was revealed, each orb looking now at an individual genin. For those four genin in the arena, if the linked closely at the orbs they would be able to see what almost looked like the flat outline of lips curled ever so slightly upwards just below each eye as though the individual orbs were smiling. Some might even consider such a strange sight a bit creepy...

"Greeting my young friends. Let us begin when you are ready..."

Haruka would arrive in the arena and see two familiar faces sighing with relief that she could at least be teamed up with familiar faces. and then saw the strange man with the floating orbs that she assumed was there opponent. She wondered what sort of techniques would work on a jonin though one things for sure she knew she couldn’t win on her own so she started walking at a moderate pace towards Akihiro and the person he was with. Wondering what’s with those orbs and what he would be using them for.

Post by broodboy » Wed Jun 23, 2021 2:51 am

The time had finally come. The team battle where Akihiro would be able to put his true skills to the test and show just how good at unit type environments would shine. He was oddly motivated, maybe it was the energy of the exams or maybe he felt like he had something to prove from the loss of his first battle. Regardless, he pulled his cloak down from his red revealing his chestnut brown hair and striking Henrin eyes.

His Mother in the stands heart began to well with excitement. She leaned over to her husband who was also watching from the bleachers. ”Aki is serious in this fight. He never pulls his hood down like that unless he doesn’t want to miss a detail.” She faintly remembered this from when she trained him in Iljutsu with Jinto Senpai.

The young genin did a quick scan of the arena noting that not too much had changed over the course of the fights. Each arena seemed almost identical save for blow up trees or covered up holes in the ground from explosives and other ninjutsu. Before the bell rang he made his assessment. Ironically, he did not have to face off against Izumi, Haruka but, aid her in taking down a jouin level opponent. He knew her skills well not only from training with her before this very exam, but also watching her during the bout against his fellow Suna ninja, Souseiji, Leimine. The other two team membesr Akihiro did not have an intimate knowledge of besides what he observed during this fight was Shiimu, Kozan. Akhiro was unable to observe what skills he possessed due to personal reasons so that was a variable weighing in on his mind. Nobu was also a wild card as this was the first time the Henrin saw his name in the entire tournament. He would need more information if they were going to stand a chance at fighting someone used to taking on multiple opponents.

Across the arena stood an Iwa Jounin. His build seemed normal. His all-black clothing and his clan’s symbol proudly displayed did not make the young genin alarmed. Orbs on the man’s belt drew his attention, but not for any particular reason. The fight had not begun yet and in the span of a few seconds he began to formulate a plan.

Step one would be assessment and information gathering. They would all need to group up and figure out the best method of fighting for them. The other’s probably didn’t have the memory to recall everyone’s particular fighting style so the Henrin took it upon himself to make that his job. He leaned over to the genin standing next to him.

”When the bell rings lets meet up with the others first. Ill make sure to cover you so just run to the others as quickly as possible.”

Within an instant of him finishing that comment the buzzer sounded and the small orbs on the Jounin’s belt sprung to life with a menacing look. It was like four eyes with small mouths began to hunt each of them. Is this the puppetry technique? He thought to himself before confirming the mans fingers were not moving. Besides, chakra puppetry was a village secret. He made sure to keep a wide eye observing the orbs meant for each of them with particular interest trying to understand how they moved or what was moving them if anything at all. He was wholly unfamiliar with this type of weapon, but highly interested with wanting to make one.

He would dart for the trees hoping Izumi and the other genin would follow suit. Attempting to get some type of cover from these hunters.

~Eideticism - Pattern Recognition
C-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Using their photographic memory, a Henrin can effectively memorize the way an opponent utilized a specific Taijutsu technique. Thereafter, should that opponent attempt to use the same technique while the Henrin has their eye open, they can almost instinctively react to it as they have memorized and figured out the technique the first time. Essentially, the same Taijutsu technique does not normally work on a Henrin twice.

Kozan stood at the ready, before the match even started he would take a deep inhale, and be surprised to find that he could immediately recognize fear scents on 3 people, and was surprised to find that the only individual without a scent was not in fact their opponent, but the boy they had named as Nobu. This would mean that even if Xi was incredibly strong (perhaps an indication even so), he was weak in will. When the boy next to him spoke, Kozan shook his head. "That boy Nobu is going to be the key to winning. Meet up with him, make a plan.", he instructed. Pulling both smoke bombs from his flak, he would toss them in a single throw, one flying towards the center of the arena, the other off to his right, about 10m from the sand. This would create a decent sized cloud for Nobu, and Akihiro to meet in so they could begin to coordinate. The bombs would burst into 10m diameter clouds, decent cover.

The black bracer around Kozan's arm would begin to squirm, forming into straight staff 2m in length. Kozan would rush forward, taking in a deep breath as he focused in on Xi. Unlike the others, he wouldn't need to be able to see to find his opponent. Allowing him to strike from the cloud if Xi entered it. Once Kozan was in the smoke cloud in the center of the arena he would stop, holding the staff at the ready behind him. He just needed to buy enough time for Nobu, Izumi and Akihiro to formulate a plan.
SpoilerShow
The base design for Kozan, he is meant to be the perfect predator. Kozan’s enhanced predatory instinct comes with two skills that are granted to him. The first is that Kozan is able to sense fear as a 6th sense, which Kozan approximates closest to smelling. In it’s basest form, Kozan is simply able to recognize the aura of fear on anyone within 25m of him, that gets stronger as he gets closer to the fearful person, though he is unable to distinguish individuals. Techniques can further refine this. Secondary to this, Kozan constantly radiates killer instinct. While this doesn’t have any major physiological or psychological effects, those within 25m of Kozan, with less Willpower than him, will begin to experience small waves of fear through them, which Kozan can then sense to track. Kozan is always radiating killer instinct.

[Predatory Instinct: The Scent of Horror]
C-rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: [Predator] Ability
Kozan is able to instantly assess the number of people within 40m of him at any time by smelling the fear radiating from them in the air. Anyone not currently experiencing any amount of fear will not be able to be sensed this way.

Nobu stood in the middle of the arena, looking around at the audience he adjusted his white medical jacket proud of the logo on his back ready to show what the medical corp can do. The challenge in front of them actually seemed polite even calling them young friends, but this didn’t relax Nobu he knew the challenge that laid ahead of them.

He was hoping to act more as of a support role in this bout, but it seemed the boy from Kiri had other plans singling to the rest of the group that he was some how they key to somehow winning this fight. He pondered why the Genin known as Kozan thought Nobu was somehow important.

He was unfortunately wrong, Nobu wasn’t overly a tactician but he was quite powerful for a Genin so perhaps he’d worked that out? Either way it didn’t matter now, Nobu placed his hands together and quickly formed a set of seals, he felt a warm sensation pour through him as a clone made entirely of Sankaton chakra formed next to him and it immediately took off running towards Kozan to assist him if need be “Lead him to Xi!” Nobu yelled to Kozan.

If the group did come towards Nobu, he wouldn’t waste much time “We need to figure out was those orbs do A.S.A.P until we do that we can’t formulate a plan, once my clone strikes we’ll see what happens.” He paused for a moment, still confused why this burden had been put on him, but nonetheless it was part of the challenge to work as a team and leadership seemed to have fallen to him, unless someone else decided to take on the mantle “For now, keep moving and defend yourself!” he yelled out to the group, drawing out a kunai and holding it in a defence position readying for whatever happened next.
UsedShow
*[Corrosion Clone]
D-Ranked Sankaton Ninjutsu
After performing the necessary hand seals, the user will create a clone out of their Sankaton chakra. This clone will have the users stats. It lasts for [Control/5] posts. Whenever it comes in contact with any type of weapon, attack, or person, it 'explodes' into a mass of Sankaton chakra, that attaches itself to any metallic objects, that creates a thin mist. The mist covered a 5x5x5m area, but is widely distributed, which lessens the damage it does, but causes first degree burns to anyone who passes through it.

*Ochiba • Oaken Defense
D-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: 10 Speed
A technique that specializes in fighting Samurai and equalizing the battle field. The user will wait for their target to attack, and will quickly counter this by gliding the blade of their kunai onto the opponent's blade. The user will quickly move in towards their opponent while also sliding their kunai closer and closer to the opponent's hilt. This will force the angle of their blade to be raised and leaves the opponent wide open for attack.

Jutsu used last post for reference

Soul Orb: Basic Enlargement
D-Rank Ninjutsu
Forming a short set of hand seals the user channels chakra into his active soul orbs causing their size to increase from their normal three inch diameter up to the max size allowed by the user's [Control] stat. This transformation last for [Control/4] posts.

Soul Orb: Eye of Insight
D-Rank Ninjutsu
Forming a short set of hand seals the user channels chakra into his active soul orbs causing their eye slots to open and reveal a hidden eye that is linked to the vision of the user lasting for up to four posts.
His dark eyes took 8n the field in front of him as his vision was enhnace through the four new point of view created when the orbs opened their special eye. It was more than simply improved vision as it also allowed for him to see chakra as well, some that brought an interesting surprise as he could tell that the Nobu kid on the white medical nin jacket had a rather large chakra supply that bordered on jounin levels.

But as he thought this one might be the one to keep an eye on during the match instead it was the one known as Kozan that made him feel something strange in the back on his mind. Like this one had some kind of hidden secret about him but as for what was causing this tingling on the back of his neck the man couldn't place his finger on it at the moment. With the start of the match two of the genin rushes to link up with one another as the Kiri nin broke out two canisters and chucked them into the center of the arena.

One orb stayed about two meters in front of Xi as the three others moved at ten (10) speed forward. Of the three, two shot upwards at an angle and went directly over the quickly billowing smoke before breaking off towards two seperate targets. One being Nobu himself and the other being Izumi. These two orbs opened their tooth filled mouths as the straight forward attempting to bit each of their target with mouths that opened around six inches in size.

While the two orbs passed overhead of the smoke cloud and Kozan who rushed into it with the clone trailing close behind, the last of the three orbs that moved stopped a few meters outside the smoke bomb area and ita mouth opened to reveal a ball of chakra hidden within its mouth. A conical spray of needles moving at five speed and strength targeted the center area of the area vieled in the cover of smoke. Using an aoe style of attack against anyone trying ro use the smoke to their advantage. Understanding that someone doesn't normally rush into a cloud of smoke unless they have a means of using it for some type of advantageous means. The needle attack would push through the cloud and if they weren't stopped by anything they fly until they impacted the wall on the otherside of the arena area.

'What a diverse bunch...' Speaking quietly to himself the man focused on his combined vision as he continued to hold a single hand seal and channel chakra to his four orbs. Not planning on moving a single step this match...but at the same time he didn't plan to put to much effort into this match either as it was something he had been voluntold to do by his own superiors. Sighing to himself as he focused on the reactions of each target within the arena.

Jutsu usedShow

Soul Orb: Exploding Needle Attack Command

As haruka was walking towards the end of the arena Akihiro was in she would see him run to a tree then a interesting chain of events took place where. The kiri ninja made a smoke bomb blocking her vision of what’s happening with him and Nobu. She then quickly sees one of the orbs fly towards her and does hand signs to activate bright bolt jutsu control speed 10 control strength 10 aiming it at the things mouth hoping to blast it away at what could be considered a vulnerable area normally. Immediately after firing the jutsu at it she would enter the smoke cloud. Heading what she thinks is south to Nobu’s last known location.

The sounds of battle erupted in the arena as four genin sprung into action quickly pulling out their best tactics. It was ironic that Akihiro had no ninja tools or extremely flashy jutsu, but he had something much better an arguably one of the best things in the entire world. His brain. He began running behind Kozan as a cold feeling crept into his mind. His palms began to sweat and a lump in his throat prevented him from speaking for a second. This was an odd feeling for him but, he had felt it before. He purposefully did things that would not create it. Although, it was slightly different. This fear seeped into him like a black pool and slowly made its way into his muscles. It was coming off of Kozan. Man am I glad he is on my team.

As they ran a staff morphed from the wrist of his counter part which Akihiro found interesting. The metal might be worth looking into for weapons in the future. He tucked the idea onto a mental shelf and listened to Kozan’s words about Nobu. He wouldn’t be talking out of his ass so Aki added it to the running list of things going through his mind. He perched himself behind a tree and observed the field of actions. The smoke bombs were a nice distraction from his actions that would let him really take in how the field was playing. Kozan ran head long into the smoke, his staff expertly held with the confidence of someone who knew what they were doing.

Nobu, the proverbial chosen one by Kozan sent a clone towards them directing Kozan to get the clone as close to the jounin as possible. He proudly sported a medical symbol on his jacket and Akihiro recognized that. Which means he would be able to focus his own chakra on other things besides first aid.

The orbs all appeared to move independently of each other, Confirmed by the separate actions. They swirled around the plume of smoke taking in the field. Two chased his fellow team members and even attempted to bite them. The orbs did not move very fast, but he would not be surprised if the Jounin could make them move faster. There was so much going on at once that it was becoming difficult for the young genin to keep track. Akhiro was not being attacked by anything that he could see so he began to focus chakra into his eyes doing his best to absorb every detail.

Haruak unleashed a flash of lightning at the orb that was perusing her as Akihiro would make a note of how it reacted to the chakra as well as if it would get destroyed by it. It’s most likely extremely resilient. One flew high above the smoke and unleashed a spray of chakra into the smoke. Hopefully Kozan can deflect those, but if he is anything like the Konah ninja he should have no problem. Nobu held a kunai in his hand tactfully on the defensive as most medical ninja would be. Akihiro sent a glance towards their opponent. His eyes were open, but he was maintaining a hand seal which meant that he was channeling chakra into his orbs to move them by some mechanism.

Akhiro was in the perfect location to formulate a plan. Although the information was slim they needed to start going on the offensive. With his quick assessment of the team he formulated a small plan. They had the medical support from Nobu, the menacing confidence from Kozan, and the short fuzed explosive jutsu’s from Haruka. Had Akihiro put more into his training he might know a better way to talk with everyone at once, but he did what he could.

With a flurry of hand seals, he made three basic clones behind the tree all with explicit instruction. The clone that would run to Haruka would tell her to protect Nobu with her long-range ninjutsu. The one headed into the mist at the direction of Kozan would tell him to run straight for Xi and have the clone created by Nobu flanking the Iwa Jounin. One clone would remain in the spot that Akihiro was and he himself would run towards Nobu to group up and evaluate for himself what made him the key to this battle.

It would not take him long to cover the distance between them as Akihiro was quite fast. He ran as quickly as possible and shoulder-checked the menacing orb meant to bite, who Akihiro was now referring to as, The King. He gave a pointed stare at the boy, the Henrin’s intensity at full force. Henrin, Akihiro, nice to meet you. Let’s form a defensive position here and wait to see how the attacking unit fairs. Haruka should be joining us over here in a second and we will form a support unit here. Kozan will make the first move with the clone you created.”

Once the simple clones spoke their instructions they would disappear so Akihiro could observe how the Jounin would counter. He placed his eyes on the orb highest up in the sky assuming that it was able to share the vision with the others or even just to the Jounin himself. That would be the only way to keep track of so many different foes at once.

The clone would run to join Kozan as he disappeared into the cloud, quickly followed by another. Have the clone flank. Got it. He pushed Nobu's clone to the left, sending it off in that direction. He'd simply assume that clone would have heard the same instruction and known was to do. As he rushed forward, needles would fly through the smoke, the first two impaling his left shoulder as he swung the staff up, spinning it in his right hand to block further needles. As he came out the other side, he'd continue to spin the staff as he approached the orb before diving to the left and taking a swing at it from the side. Hoping to knock the orb out of play, he tucked into a roll, the staff releasing into a loose fluid then forming back into a solid staff as he returned to his feet.

If Nobu's clone was flanking, that meant Kozan was be going one on one with this guy. Not exactly a strong position for him to be in. This was twice now he'd been forced into situations where he had to make a frontal assault rather than stalk in the shadows like he preferred. If Nobu and the other two could formulate some plan, hopefully Kozan would be able to slip away and attack from the shadows.

Slowing his frontal assault, he now stalked, holding the staff in his left hand as he reached up with his right, pulling the two senbon out. He'd continue to strafe, crouched slightly, trying to lead Xi's gaze away from where the clone would be going by strafing in the opposite direction. When the time came, he'd be ready to pounce.

The clone would do as it was commanded, it hurtled through the smoke and leaped through the side leaving a small trail behind it whilst it continued around the side and behind Xi, hoping he was distracted by Kozan. The clone charged forward, lifting up his arm and swinging at the back of Xi’s head.

The real Nobu, continued holding the kunai out infront of him as the two other genin came to his position, he nodded in response to each of them with a very casual greeting.

“We need to attempt to strike those orbs, I’d assume as they take on the appearance of eyes they do just that, offer a visual insight.” Though Nobu didn’t truly know if he was correct “Perhaps they could be nothing but an offence.”

There was only one way to find out, he pushed his finger through the pommel of the kunai and spun it over his fingertip as he weaved a set of hand seals “Split up, don’t all gather around one another try and take out those eyes, either way they are an essential part of his game plan. Do not touch them, use ranged attacks we don’t know how they’ll react.” He said with a nod, once the seals were complete, the kunai would be engulfed in flames he darted forward pulling back his arm and launching the heated blade through the air aiming at the nearest eye, hoping to cause some damage to it.

Challenges: Xi vs Izumi, Akihiro, Kozan, and Nobu

For Izumi

The orb took the attack head on, Xi not really worried about the strength of the female genin only to find that the attack had enough force to actually briefly pause the advance of the orb which caused the man to raise an eyebrow. 'An elemental ninjutsu type...' This brief interval allowed for the young girl to break away but she was followed by the rapidly advancing orb that chased her attempting to bite the genin where ever it could is she wasn't fast enough to escape its ten (10) speed movement.


For Akihiro

The orb heading for Nobu was tracking a decent field of view and was able to witness the actions from the other genin who had created clones that seemed to have their own destinations before rushing in different directions towards his fellow teammates. But it was a rather rash decision to attempt to shoulder check the flying or because unlike a person who was rather limited in the amount of movement it had in the air, the orb was able to freely move itself under the will of its users and the young kid would discover this for himself in that moment. At the moment he attempted to shoulder check the open mouthed orb it instantly swiveled to the left intercepting the approaching genin who would drive his shoulder directly into the waiting jaws of the metallic mouth that would bite down with its ten (10) speed and strength.


For Nobu

The orb meant for him would find its prey elsewhere as the other genin attempted to shoulder check it (insert what happens when Haruak responds, if the bite lands then reference the spoiler at the bottom of the post). But Nobu's own personal strength would come to a surprise as the genin's heated dagger was strong enough to break through the ten (strength) orb due to its elemental coating just a few moments later. This caused for the jounin to have to re-evaluate the medic shinobi as a major threat amongst the genin group as the other two so far didn't seem like to much. Due to the "genin's" attack the eye was destroyed and the orb seemed to wobble in the air as if something was wrong with it. Fixing an orb was always a pain in the ass... to damage the soul orb to the point that it must have affected the chakra receptor when it passed through the orb as it was somewhat sluggish to respond to his commands.


For Kozan

Xi was able to see the genin that gave him a strange feeling exit the black clouds spinning the strange metal staff with refine precision, enough to only allow a few senbon to strike him even from a blind attack. It was truly impressive reflexes and training that gave the jounin a sense of almost admiration for the genin's actions. Though from his position as the orb was struck at the orb spun much like it had against the other genin with no warning or indicator of its movement to chomp at the staff only to find that after it made contact it reverted to some sort of fluid like existence. "How odd..." Even Xi couldn't help but remark at the oddity of it even with his floating orbs that had a large eye and metal filled mouths. He had planned to take away the staff from the boy but that proved much harder to do and instead the orb flew rapidly at full speed (10 speed and strength) positioning itself to stay between Xi and the genin attempting to flank to Xi's left.


Nobu

Due to how the man has his feet on the edge of the sand ring and the start of the arena it would prove hard to truly flank the man unseen as the fourth orb that had its eye tracking as it exited the smoke cloud and the orb floated to just above the right shoulder and the approaching clone. Already a bit weary from how the so-called genin had been able damage the weakened orb, a decent feat on its own so the man would put a bit more strength into his next action as the clone opened its mouth screwing forth raw chakra that rapidly expanded outward (20 speed and strength) toward the advancing clone into a fifteen meter concave barrier that if the clone didn't respond properly would expand to push the clone directly into the wall allowing himself to be protected from the right flank for the time being and somewhat attack the clone in the process as the barrier cut off an advance around him and would require the clone to backtrack around the growing barrier and attack him from the front most likely.

Xi himself was still continuing to probe and watching the actions of each genin with just these few orbs to determine what exactly their strengths and weaknesses were, to this affect an addition orb floated up directly in front of the man's chest as a tiny golden eye opened up just like the ones before only this one stayed within about one-to-two meters of the jounin seeming to be a replacement for the damaged one near Nobu and Haruak.

Sadly Haruka didn’t notice when the eye was damaged in the smoke but what Haruka did notice was the effect her jutsu had on the orb and next time remembered To hit it harder. So when it started chasing her after she had started to run she quickly kept running while doing the hand signs. Then at the the last moment when it was mere centimeters from her body and biting her at the last second she quickly turned around and tried blasting it in the center of its mouth again with the same jutsu. Control speed 4 control strength 16 then if she was at least able to stun in like last time she would do a few hand signs and activate her chakra burst alt on her feet and axe kick do quick flip to gain speed and momentum then brought her heal down on its eye in a axe kick. If it connected a 20 control strength explosion of chakra would hit the orb.

Afterwards she would then keep running into the smoke, when suddenly she would then hear the instructions from the clone and heard where Nobu was. She was already planning on heading towards him but at-least she knew where in the cloud he was now. So she nodded to the clone in response as she kept moving then did her best to reach Nobu. She hoped somehow together they could pass this challenge.

It was a huge miscalculation on his part. He had observed the movements of all the orbs quite well but, the heat of battle got the better of him. He forgot how they turned, swiveled, and flowed in his hurried attempt to analyze a variable of his plan. Akihiro was blind sided by his own naivety and would have to pay a rough price for it. One could say it was entirely the reason he chose to learn Kugapau in the first place. He blocked the rest of the battle field out of his mind for the moment of impact where he would feel his shoulder barely touch the edge of the gaping mouth. He could track its speed as they were all moving as fast as he was; a factor the Jounin surely would adjust when he needed to.


For a brief moment he felt the metal jaws of the creepy weapon slowly move to clamp down on his right shoulder. He would quickly press his left hand against the hull to begin to spin along its edge. He felt the corner of the orbs mouth make contact with his right shoulder grazing it . There was a one inch gash where the counter attack was successful that would ring in his body. Before he could turn to counter attack it Nobu launched into a series of hand seals himself as the kunai he had in his hand began to glow with a searing fire like embers in a furnace. It slid through the orb that had originally been meant for him with ease. Akihiro was taken by surprise with the sheer force that shredded apart the orb he just laid a hand on.


What immense chakra. Is it just me or is every genin from other villages more powerful than I am.


Thank you for the assist, that was a close one. No wonder Mr. Killing intent said you were going to be our ace.” Aki stood up and assessed his arm. A shallow wound, but any deeper and it could have mad his arm useless. However, the hit took more out of him than he thought. His energy levels felt lower than before as he ran through the list of jutsu that he used in the fight. There was more to those orbs than he previously thought. He looked on to watch the advance of the attack team taking in deep breaths to lower his heart rate. He did not want to get lost in his own impatience again and with no threat currently on him he had the time.


Wishfully he followed the clone run at Xi’s flank while Kizan appeared from the smoke to make a frontal assault. A two pronged attack that was surely coming from his blind spot or so the Henrin thought. How naive he was as a powerful chakra barrier erected from the orb that had been hovering above the field. The barrier was massive and the shape looked to push the clone away with ease. On the same front Kozan was at least able to stare him down and prevent his weapon from being taken.

That confirms it, I had a theory, but I can say now with some certainty that the vision from all of his weapons are linked. Secondly, each ‘orb’ operates independently of the others and are controlled through chakra. We won’t be able to make a scratch on him if we don’t eliminate them or hide. I also believe he is able to actively regulate the amount of chakra each orb is receiving and change their strength and speed on the fly.”

Akihiro focused chakra into his left hand as it began to glow with a faint green hue. He held it over his wounded right shoulder and began to stop the bleeding. And stood up from his kneeling position. ”I would not be surprised if the next time you try to use that jutsu again it wouldn’t work on it twice. Candidly I think you do not need me here to help you and observing the way our ally wields his weapon I do not think he is used to fighting opponents face to face.” Akihiro was frustrated with himself. He needed to study more, learn more, and create more things to be less of a burden to teams. His brain was a massive tool, but without the means to enact his plans or support from a better position.


”I will go and assist him so he can fight to his fullest it looks like he is waiting for an opening that is not coming. You and Haruka take care of the orbs with your long range ninjutsu if you can.”


With that Akihiro dashed to Kozan. It was a good thing he was used to running otherwise it would prove exhausting. As he moved he made sure to make note of the locations of all active orbs. One was damaged by Nobu, one was still pursuing Haruka, one was projecting a barrier, and one was directly between Kozan, Akihiro, and Xi. Should any of them change their trajectory and make a beat for him he would be prepared to react. The closer he got to Kozan the worse the bloodlust crept into his mind. It was cold and tasted like metal in his mouth. He arrived and placed his hand on his allies shoulder.


”Let me take care of the frontal assault. You wont find an opening here, not with all of their sense being linked. The way you walk makes me think you attack from the shadows so try to hide if you can, although, do not be surprised if you can not actually hide. I would not be surprised if he new some sort of tracking jutsu.”


He stared down the orb with the golden eye that was now looking at him and then up to Xi. He saw enough of the battle field to know that being the one up close to their opponent was going to be best for them. He made sure to show his eyes to the orb hoping it would cause the Jounin to make him more of a target. ”Senpai, would you tell me what metal your weapons are made of or do you need to concentrate to send them chakra?”

Just before any type of ninjutsu the orb mouth will open and chakra will form inside it before being released. There is almost no warning when the trajectory of its face changes however, there is a small window from when it starts turning to stopping in the direction it needs to be in. As long as I watch for these two things I should be okay to fight one head on.
Jutsu UsedShow
*Kūgāpou • Slight Dodge
D-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Whenever in a situation where they can't avoid being struck, the practitioner will slightly shift their body. This slight movement allows them to cause the incoming attack to miss any vital organs and cause as little damage as possible.

*[Iijutsu • Blood Clot Technique]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
This highly useful field technique is applied to bleeding wounds to help encourage the coagulation of the blood. After focusing chakra into his/her hands, the user will hover them over the bleeding wound and begin to channel chakra through it. The chakra will began to thicken the blood, causing it to clot. Wounds must be dealt with one at a time, and the number of wounds that can be tended to within the three (3) posts that this technique lasts depends on their size. Small wounds take very little time to clot, while moderate wounds take one (1) post of concentration to clot, and large wounds take two (2) posts to clot. Although this technique stops the bleeding, the wound remains vulnerable and will require further care after this has been performed.

~Eideticism – Rapid Recall
D-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
By quickly using their Doujutsu, the family member can recall a small portion of any memory in a fraction of a second, in order to recall specific details such as clones, Genjutsu triggers, and the like. This takes almost no focus or effort, allowing The family member to recall the detail with pinpoint accuracy and speed

Nobu looked at the young genin talking, it seemed all of his theories were simply conjecture they could be true but Nobu couldn’t figure out where he’d collected his evidence from “Don’t assume too much.” He said coldly, the arrogance of the Konoha Genin was almost unbearable.

They wouldn’t have so much time to talk and discuss, didn’t this man realise he was in a battlefield “Keep your instructions short and clear.” He barked as he flung himself to the left, watching as the orb they destroyed was quickly replaced by another “Keep him distracted.” He ordered to the pair.

He tutted with annoyance as he saw a stone dislodge and knock out Kozan, it was an annoyance but none the less he still needed to focus. Slamming as smoke bomb onto the ground and running into the depths of the smoke, taking as sharp left as he ran around 5 metres, he came to near the edge of the smoke and threw another, and again another 5 metres slammed another one down, however rather than running into the third set of smoke he stayed in the second hoping that both Xi and of the smoke he slammed down another weaving a flurry of hand seals as he did. He leaped out of the smoke, now 10 metres to the left of Xi as a stream of sankton poured from his mouth and took on the form of a cougar, running across the ground at an incredible speed and directly at the man.

Secondly the clone that was attempting to flank Xi, was hit firmly however it disrupted in an explosion of sankton hopefully damaging Xi or at the most pushing him more forward into Nobu’s cougar.

Haruka

Her timing was impeccable as the lighting bolt from her finger tipis shot directly into the chomping mouth of the soul orb striking its chakra transceiver, damaging causing for the orb to halt in its tracks and slowly float downwards as if the gravity had finally one over and was claiming the shinobi’s mysterious tool. Leaving it wide open to the chakra empowered axe kick that broke the top half of the orb revealing the scorched inner workings of the orb as it was slammed into the ground creating a nice sized crater upon impact. Xi was continuously surprised with these genin, how fun this was becoming.


Kozan

As the orb smashed into the Sank clone the impact caused an explosion which kicked up dirt and debris, of that being a small rock that shot across the arena striking the genin in his blind spot and knocking the kid out cold. The strange tingling sensation of danger that had been on the back of his neck disappeared at the same moment, what an odd occurrence and just how bad was the kid’s luck for something like that to happen to him here. It made Xi sigh out loud as he had been one of the more interesting genin of the group in the Iwa-nin’s eyes.


Aki

The other genin that had kept step coming from behind Kozan held himself at a distance, seeming to attempt and put together everything that had happened so far in the short battle between the four of them and Xi. Though this one was the closest one to Xi currently he really didn’t feel a threat from this one like he had Nobu or Kozan, even the girl who had managed to knock out his orb didn’t feel like much of a threat either. In his eyes those two could be ignored to deal with the Konoha Medic Nin who seemed far stronger than a genin. Especially with the attack he’d just used...so for the moment the actions of Aki appeared to have been ignored as the man’s eyes were fixated on something else.


Nobu

That something else was the corrosive liquid that was quickly eating its way through the chakra barrier that had shielded the man himself from being hit with the liquid as the clone broke apart into it. Though he’d never seen it in person he was a jounin and knowledgeable enough about one of the village’s enemies to know this was one of the special releases from the Leaf village, but a young shinobi with this much chakra and even the ability to use that release was enough to peak the man’s interest in him. He truly had been holding back too much now as he heard the first smoke bomb go off through the previously lingering smoke bombs that Kozan had thrown.

The orb that had been keeping space between Kozan, AKi, and himself shot up into the air as the man himself leaped upwards placing chakra into the orb as it expanded to about a meter in size, easily dealing with the man’s weight as it moved upwards nearing fifteen or twenty meters. As the orb went up two new orbs detached themselves from the man and shot downwards as the second smoke bomb exploded. Only these moved much faster than the previous ones at [35] thirty five control and increased in size now to two meters. These man sized orbs opened their mouths wide enough to envelop a normal sized person (think pacman mouth action) shooting down rapidly towards the third smoke bomb's position.

If he had chosen to keep this a one dimensional fight, it would have been very bad but taking the high ground in this instance paid off as his prey leaped from the smoke to reveal himself to Xi, who altered the orbs flight path to attack both Nobu and the other orb attempting to intercept the forming creature the ‘genin’ was crafting before it was able to fully manifest. The Sankaton element was dangerous and not even Xi as a jounin wanted to face something like that head off if he didn’t have to do so...

Haruka would quickly destroy the exposed burnt transceiver in the orb that was exposed below her foot. Then would yell to aki “my long range jutsu aren’t strong enough to destroy them best I can do is stun them if I can hit the right spot. Any other ideas? Also don’t you have a way to communicate without yelling? It seems pretty ineffective if you think about it.”

Since the guy seemed to be ignoring her she would take advantage of that and would quickly look around at what’s going on then would quickly run towards the strange orb mans blind spot underneath him. Since she clearly wasn’t going to reach the large orb going to attack the construct in time. Then would tie some wire to a kunai and run wind chakra(control 10 strength) to enhance the kunai’s cutting power and would then throw it above at the orb the man was standing on. If it connected and even slightly pierced the orb. She would then start slowly channeling fuinjutsu chakra up the wire and into the orb at (control speed 2) storing the chakra in the kunai. Until the jutsu is ready and she activates it causing a seal to instantly appear all over the orbs body.

Akihiro was so focused on the battle ahead of him that a second rock whizzed in wholly unnoticed and clocked him in the back of the head. The crowd were growing impatient. He toppled over with grim inevitability and was eliminated from the bout.

The fight continues for Xi, Haruka, and Nobu.

A signal came to Xi from one of the judges, it seemed that they had seen enough to evaluate the trio and the green eyed Iwa-nin simply gave a slight now. Chakra flowed off the man's body suddenly as his si gle handed seal instantly became a two handed focus seal. The set of orbs on his sash all came to life and without a moments hesitation they flew out at maximum speed striking each of the genin participants with enough force to render each unconscious but not render permenant damage to any of them. It had been a drag for Xi but at least it was over now...
