Reviews: Fan Fic/Naruto Shattered Eyes

From comments

  • Comments: An amazingly well written Naruto fanfiction, in all honesty this could be considered one of the greatest on the site. It is one of the "Bloodline Copy" ideas, but this one annihalates every single other one out there. Seriously... Read this.
    • Kurtulmak: Welp, it's pretty much the usual super!Naruto power trip fic. He gets the aforementioned bloodline with some Fake Balance and New Powers As The Plot Demands. Oh yeah, and there's the ever-so-original fem!Kyuubi trying to tempt him. So far a recipe for Marty Stu failure, but the author manages to keep Naruto's personality mostly intact. The writing's passible, and the action scenes are good, even though Power Creep Power Seep makes things a little ridiculous at times. Like giving Naruto a second Super Powered Evil Side. Possibly notable for having one of the few fics where Iruka can stand up to Orochimaru.
      • Less Fake Balance, this Troper feels, and more like Fridge Horror. The fact that Bloodline Limits are written into a person's body at the genetic level, means that in order to succesfully copy them, the Kyoukagan would have to literally rewrite Naruto's genetic code to match it, every time it's used! And if that's not Nightmare Fuel enough, the fact that blood-to-blood contact causes other people to spontaneously generate all-new Limits of their own, means that effect must still be lingering on within his body, even when it's not actively being used! Small wonder he's developing a case of With Great Power Comes Great Insanity!

Sound cliche, but isn't

You might have heard or read of fic where Naruto suddenly gains a powerful bloodline, wipe out all competition, and become a living god.

That is not that story.

While Naruto gains an extremely powerful and useful ability, the author added multiple downsides and limitations that makes the Dojutsu actually very dangerous to use and avoids a Gary Stu situation. And the competition is quite rude. For example Orochimaru is still too strong to be beaten and is coveting the bloodline for himself, Gaara is still a dangerous threat, and another experienced person has a cousin Dojutsu and is out to kill Naruto.

Also notable for increasing Sakura and Iruka's powers early.

So, it mind sounds cliche, but really, it isn't. The hero is not a God Mode Sue, and the situation is played realistically. A good story.
