-->"[[{{Reincarnation}} Past lives]]... [[SnakePeople an evil snake like man]]... [[{{Ninja}} ninjas]]... Luffy and the rest discover that in their past lives they were ninjas and they have some unfinished business that they need to perform." - Summary on [=FanFiction=].Net

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3275874/1/Souls-Reborn Souls Reborn]]'' is a FanFic by Creator/EmmaIveli. It is a CrossOver between ''{{Naruto}}'' and ''OnePiece''. The premise is that around ninety or so years ago, the Konoha 12, the Sand Siblings, [[AndZoidberg and Kakashi]] were all killed by Orochimaru one by one during a FinalBattle. However, afterwards, a woman appeared before Orochimaru and told him that due to his many injustices, the sixteen ninja he killed would be reincarnated, and one day unite together again to kill him once and for all. Then, she gave a scroll to the other two Sannin, which would make them immortal and young, so they may wait for the reincarnations and help them train for their final battle with Orochimaru.

Now, the reincarnations have started to gather - and at their head is a certain [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits crew]].

Last Update: 3/28/13.

!!Tropes:

* AcceptableBreaksFromCanon: For Naruto: Orochimaru killing the sixteen ninja and being the main villain in general, along with Kyuubi doing a HeelFaceTurn due to being stuck in limbo. This story was published ''long'' before the current events of the manga.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Orochimaru, in a sense. He was always a villain and a major threat, being the BigBad for Part I of the manga, but him killing the sixteen ninjas is a little hard to imagine considering that in the current arc, he doesn't hold a candle to Tobi and [[spoiler:Madara]], or to Naruto who is probably the strongest ninja in the world after the two aforementioned. However, it's [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that this FanFic was published in 2006, back when the Akatsuki was extremely mysterious, Naruto's true potential strength was unimaginable at the time, and he seemed to be the real BigBad of the manga. If Emma had published this story anywhere between 2008 and now, Tobi and/or the Akatsuki probably would have been the main villain(s), having been a far more menacing threat and a much deeper impact on the overall plot of the series.
* AllMenArePerverts: Jiraiya, Sanji, Wapol, Eyelashes, but the most surprising was Ginta, [[spoiler:''Gaara's'' reincarnation]].
* AndZoidberg: Kakashi was the only mentor/sensei to be killed out of the main cast of ''Naruto''. Chopper is the only member of the crew that doesn't know any ninjutsu.
* ArcVillain: As Crocodile is obviously far less of a threat than Orochimaru, and considering that only eleven of the sixteen ninjas have reunited as of the Alabasta Arc, this is his most likely designation.
* BadassCrew: The crew is even more {{badass}} than the first time around, considering that they all now have access to jutsus and way more people.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Zoro and [[spoiler:Tashigi]].
* BigBad: Orochimaru.
** TheDragon: Yakushi Akumei.
* BornUnlucky: Tsunade, [[spoiler:and when she starts gambling again after twenty-five years, she's too happy to notice that she's ''winning'']].
* BrilliantButLazy: Zoro, seeing as he's Shikamaru's reincarnation and likely gained his intellect. However, unless it has to do with swords and swordsmen, he doesn't give a damn about it.
* CoolOldLady / BadassGrandma: Dr. Kureha, [[spoiler:who is really Tsunade in disguise]].
* CurbStompBattle: Kuromarimo had a boxing match against [[spoiler:Tsunade]]. You can guess what happened.
** Mr. 3 vs [[spoiler:Ace]]. Mr. 3 is so badly outclassed that he's deluded himself into thinking that he'll win and get a promotion.
** Crocodile vs. Four-Tailed Luffy would have been this had Orochimaru not foreseen the possibility of it happening and gave Crocodile something that allowed him to actually harm Luffy when he's in that state.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Sasuke's past has not exactly endeared [[spoiler:Ace]] to his past life, and it's not hard to see why.
* DeadGuyJunior: [[spoiler:Ms. Goldenweek's real name is Temari, due to her father being from the Land of Wind. Her mother was named after Ino, because her grandfather, Sai, was in love with her until her death]].
* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Crocodile did not heed the warnings of Ms. All-Sunday (who knew far more than he did about what kind of a man Orochimaru was) and accepted an alliance with Sound. The fact that he knew absolutely nothing about the Hidden Continent ''or'' Orochimaru is what made him into the Sannin's UnwittingPawn.
* DirtyOldMan: Jiraiya, of course. Due to his immortality, the Icha Icha series now spans over ''fifty'' books. And of course, being Kakashi's reincarnation, Sanji is a huge fan.
* ElementalPowers: The joys of having both devil fruits and elemental ninjutsu in one fic.
** BlowYouAway: Luffy's been practicing with his wind chakra. And of course there's [[spoiler:Tashigi, being Temari's reincarnation and all]].
** DishingOutDirt: Crocodile and [[spoiler:Ginta]].
** MakingASplash: [[spoiler:Kaya]], being Hinata's reincarnation, who was a master of water jutsus.
** PlayingWithFire: [[spoiler:[[CaptainObvious Ace]], and not just because he's Sasuke's reincarnation]].
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Tashigi]] is willing to cooperate with pirates considering the situation. However, it soon became clear that she may be joining the Straw Hats [[spoiler:due to being declared a traitor and pirate by the marines]]. Then there's Zoro, who she has BelligerentSexualTension with.
* EvilerThanThou: Crocodile doesn't hold a candle to Orochimaru and, unfortunately for him, he found out too late.
* {{Flanderization}}: In-universely acknowledged and subsequently [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]. Despite being his reincarnation, Luffy is far more idiotic and annoying than Naruto ever was.
* TheGamblingAddict: Tsunade. Some things never change.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Ms. Goldenweek, aka Temari]].
* HijackedByGanon: Once Crocodile accepted an alliance with Orochimaru, there was no doubt who was truly in control.
* IdiotHero: Luffy, as Naruto's reincarnation. Was anyone really surprised?
* {{Irony}}: The fact that the entire crew were all reincarnations is in itself irony.
** [[spoiler:Sasuke was a definitive prick, while Ace is arguably the nicest person of the main cast, Temari is graceful, while Tashigi is a klutz, Sanji can't get a girl to save his life while Kakashi was a total babe magnet...you get the idea]].
* {{Jerkass}} / JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sasuke. Sure, he may have died trying to stop Orochimaru and was close to the other fifteen ninjas in life, but their current incarnations have no shame in admitting in that he was, well, a ''prick''. [[spoiler:Ironically, his current incarnation, Ace, is probably the nicest out of all the male incarnations]]. As for the current incarnations, the closest to this trope is [[spoiler:Ginta]].
** Crocodile. When Vivi asks him about how all the suffering he made her country go through basically amounted to nothing and was now pointless due to the change of objectives by Orochimaru, all he does is laugh.
* TheKlutz: [[spoiler:Tashigi, Temari's reincarnation]].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: A given. The current main cast spans over ''thirteen'' main characters, and they've only reunited ''eleven'' of the sixteen reincarnated ninja. If you add the missing five plus the others who are obviously going to end up traveling with them, you have over ''twenty'' main characters. That's not counting all the supporting characters and villains that are likely to appear or already have, including the characters from Sound.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:Smoker doesn't know anything about the legend of the sixteen reincarnations, and Tashigi won't tell him (probably because he wouldn't believe her). As such, Tashigi has now been branded as a traitor and a pirate]].
** Chopper, seeing as he's the only member of the crew currently who has no knowledge of ninjutsu or ninja history.
* TheLostLenore: Ino was this to [[spoiler:Sai. It took a while for him to get over her, as he married very late in life, and he even ended up naming his ''daughter'' after her]].
* TheManBehindTheMan: Anyone who knew anything about Orochimaru knew the moment Crocodile accepted that alliance, Orochimaru had gained control of Baroque Works.
* NinjaLog: It's a ''Naruto'' CrossOver, what do you expect?
** Notably, this is how [[spoiler:Tsunade manages to escape the bonds the crew puts her in - in order to gamble at Rainbase]].
* NoodleIncident: An incident occurred during the last time Tsunade gambled that involved Gold Roger. She refuses to elaborate on what happened.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Yakushi Akumei, who, as you can tell, is Kabuto's direct descendant.
* [[OddNameOut Odd One Out]]: Kakashi is the only sensei that was killed and reincarnated. Asuma was dead already, Kurenai was raising the kid she had with Asuma, and there has no mention of what happened to Gai.
* OfficialCouple / ReincarnationRomance: Subverted in two cases. Creator/EmmaIveli ships both [=NaruHina=] and [=SasuSaku=], so both couples occurred in their past lives. However, since Luffy is celibate, [[spoiler:Kaya]] is in love with Usopp, Kiba's reincarnation, and both Nami and [[spoiler:Ace]] clearly have no attraction to each other, the chances of either couple happening in this life are zilch.
** The last two cases, [=ShikaTema=] and [=NejiTen=], have tons of ShipTease, which is unsurprising considering their reincarnations are Zoro and [[spoiler:Tashigi]] and [[spoiler:Kohza and Vivi]].
* OhCrap: The general reaction of everyone when they realized that Crocodile pissed off Luffy, to the point that he went ''four-tails'' straight off the bat.
* OriginalCharacter: Ginta, [[spoiler:Gaara's reincarnation, who was created because Crocodile had already eaten the Suna Suna no Mi, and Emma didn't want him to be the reincarnation considering how much of a bastard he is]].
* PastLifeMemories: Each of the reincarnations see theirs in dreams, and once they realize they aren't dreams, they become a lot more vivid and clear instead of disjointed.
* RaisedByWolves: Ginta's parents were killed by a sandstorm, so he was pretty much this. He learned how to talk thanks to sailors down at the port (which is why he's such a [[SirSwearsALot potty mouth]]), and survived in the desert [[spoiler:with his awesome sand powers]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Smoker. Once he gets a scope about the situation and realizes that [[spoiler:Tashigi]] may have merit in joining with the Straw Hats, he immediately starts searching for more information, particularly where the legend of the sixteen reincarnated ninjas are concerned.
* {{Reincarnation}}: [[CaptainObvious Duh]]. Three guesses for who Luffy is, and the first two don't count.
** Zoro: Shikamaru.
** Nami: Sakura.
** Usopp: Kiba.
** Sanji: Kakashi.
** [[spoiler:Ace: Sasuke]].
** [[spoiler:Kaya: Hinata]].
** [[spoiler:Tashigi: Temari]].
** [[spoiler:Vivi: Tenten]].
** [[spoiler:Kohza: Neji]].
** [[spoiler:Ginta: Gaara]].
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Ms. Goldenweek, aka Temari, is the granddaughter of the "thirteenth" member of the Konoha 12, Sai the Artist, one of Naruto's best friends in life. The teachings of her grandfather and being the only one (asides from Ms. All-Sunday) who knew about Orochimaru's true nature and power is what lead to her pulling a HeelFaceTurn]].
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The new Sound Four, who have only been in service for around two months.
** Sayuri of the Western Gate.
** Minako of the Northern Gate.
** Satoshi of the Southern Gate.
** Kenta of the Eastern Gate.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Sasuke in his past life, which [[spoiler:Ace]] intends to avert - at least until Orochimaru is dead. Then he's going after Blackbeard again.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: As per all Creator/EmmaIveli FanFics.
* SealedInAPersonShapedCan: Luffy, due to Kyuubi coming back with him after Naruto was reincarnated.
* SirSwearsALot: Ginta, seeing as he was taught by sailors on how to talk.
* TookALevelInBadass: The entire crew now has jutsus at their disposal, due to being awesome reincarnated ninjas.
* TookALevelInKindness: Kyuubi, mainly due to Naruto and being stuck in limbo for several decades.
* TheTrickster: What Kyuubi ended up becoming. He once made Luffy do the Sexy no Jutsu on the promise of meat - though to be honest, it only worked because Luffy is an idiot.
* TrueCompanions: The bonds of those sixteen ninjas transcended ''lifetimes''. [[spoiler:It also extended to Sai, who was known as the "thirteenth" member of the Konoha 12, and who Naruto prevented from joining the battle that killed them. His last request to his granddaughter, Ms. Goldenweek, was that should she ever meet their reincarnations, she'd tell them about how he lived his life]].
* UnwittingPawn: Crocodile, who, unlike Ms. All-Sunday, doesn't know a thing about Orochimaru or the Hidden Continent, which is why he made the mistake of making an alliance with Sound.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Usopp and Akamaru. And of course Zoro and Sanji.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There has been no mention of the Akatsuki at all asides from allusions to Itachi. This was due to the Akatsuki being mysterious and rather unknown when the fic was published.
** Kakashi was the only sensei to be killed alongside his students. While it's obvious Asuma was already dead and Kurenai is raising their kid, what happened to Gai?
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Orochimaru, of course, which is why Tsunade and Jiraiya burned the scroll with the jutsu that gave them immortality after using it.
