War of the Biju: The Fourth Shinobi World War
is a Alternate Universe fanfiction of what had happened right after the Invasion of Pain in Naruto
. Instead of Danzo Shimura
being named the Candidate Rokudaime Hokage by the Daimyo, Shikaku Nara quickly nominates the hero of the village, Naruto Uzumaki to be Hokage. Realizing that at this point if he uses his Kotoamatsukami
to force the Daimyo to make him Hokage anyway after he liked how Naruto described, Danzo lets it happen, biding his time till he can take the Hokageship
. Thus the fanfic goes into the Five Kage Summit arc with Naruto being Hokage, characters like Neji getting the spotlight (fighting evenly with Sasuke until he breaks out the Mangekyo Sharingan) and even making Taka useful (nearly taking down Kakashi with teamwork). Naruto and Sasuke (who rapidly matures his Mangekyo) fight, and Naruto defeats his full Susano'o
with a Rasenshuriken
. Just as he's about to capture the defeated Uchiha...'Madara' arrives and takes Sasuke away to be healed as well as Taka.
Notable for giving female Naruto characters the limelight and making them stronger, and has plans of making all the Rookies have notable fights in the War.
Its compared to The Hokages Will
in the beginning, since it was inspired by it.
Tropes this fic displays::
- Action Girl: All the female Naruto characters get to be this in some way or another. Hinata being one in recent chapters due to being Naruto's love interest, even awakening a higher level of the Byakugan. Sakura gets training from Kakashi to make her a more solid Combat Medic. And even Karin is able to form a plan and nearly kill Kakashi with a special trap.
- Sakura defeats Pakura, who is in this continuity a former Godaime Kazekage candidate, Ameyuri Ringo, and with Kakashi's and Monga's help she defeats the fully transformed Yondaime Mizukage Yagura herself!
- A Day in the Limelight: Neji was the first. All the Rookies will get similar days of limelight during the War.
- Adaptation Expansion: The only fight that hadn't been expanded on was The Raikage vs Sasuke. Notable in the Nine-Tails Attack on Konoha...where Hiruzen, kid Yamato, Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and teenagers Kakashi and Gai all get to fight Kyubi. Word of God says the War will be a month instead of a couple days.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Boy does Naruto show he deserves the Hokage post by beating Sasuke, breaking 'Madara's' mask, and defeating Kyubi in one on one combat.
- Clothing Damage: Naruto's jacket and shirt are damaged by Sasuke's Susano'o arrow, and Hinata's coat and mesh shirt are torn open by Kabuto when she tries fighting him.
- Combat Pragmatist: Danzo has the Sharingarm like in canon, but added Nagato's Pain Path eyes to give him Animal Path's powers, Human Path's, and eventually Asura Path's.
- Cool vs. Awesome: Sasuke's Final Susano'o vs Naruto's Senjutsu-enhanced Futon: Rasenshuriken. Rasenshuriken wins.
- Day in the Limelight: All the Konoha 11 gets it in the War Arc, each showing how far they've came by fighting elite undead shinobi oftentimes one on one and in Rock Lee's case two on one and win.
- Flash Step: Minato's, A's, and Naruto's later fighting style.
- Killed Off for Real: As of right now, Hana Inuzuka and Hiashi Hyuga.
- Lightning Bruiser: A.
- One-Man Army: Several characters: All the Kages, Naruto himself, Rock Lee, Sakura, Neji, and even Hinata have shades of it for the heroic side, Kabuto, Tobi, and all resurrected shinobi on the villain side.
