    General Tropes 

  • Badass Crew: They are the most impressive and powerful versions of the characters that the Warlord could find. For examples we've seen so far from the ring bearers alone:
    • Deidara/Ether: In addition to his canon skills, he's a Psuedo-jinchuuriki of the Yonbi, and can use Lava Release.
    • Orochimaru/Lightning: Held off Inari, Chibaku, and Karasu at the same time, and probably would have won had the fight continued.
    • Kushina/Fire: A seal master capable of canceling out ninjutsu, and this is probably just the bare beginning.
    • Zetsu/Wood: Has a Corrupt Sage Mode, and is capable of taking on the Dark Wolf with it, when she was previously capable of fighting an Edo Tensei Third Raikage with the Sharingan and Rinnegan more or less evenly. To be fair, the Dark Wolf was exhausted, and hadn't gotten much sleep for several days.
    • Mei Terumi/Water: She fought Pain, when he had 8 biju sealed in him, and managed to hold him off till Isobu, the only Biju with any real knowledge of Water Release, took over.
    • The Warlord, Naruto Uzumaki/Sun: The biggest badass of the entire bunch: He was able to hold his own against Kaguya Ootsutsuki and win, though he admitted she was strong enough to beat him if he hadn't distracted her by killing Black Zetsu. If that isn't enough, three other ring bearers put together believe they have at best, a low chance of winning against him.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: The leader's worlds are all apparently like this.
  • Big Bad Decumvirate: They are all an alliance of equals. With that said however, this is in name only: in the end, everyone there knows that the Warlord is in charge. At least half of the other ring bearers have plans to change that.
  • Character Focus: Out of Teikoku's ten core members the Warlord, Deidara, Obito, Red Zetsu, and Kushina receive the most screen time and characterization. Interestingly enough they are also the organizations most unambiguously dangerous and evil members.
  • The Empire: The organizations name is even Japanese for 'Empire'.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: All of them are at least seriously disturbed by the Warlord, and when he's brought up arguments stop very fast, and if the mood is good, it dies instantly. To put how bad he is into perspective, Deidara distastefully calls him a "Hyper-pyromaniac" and Tobi thinks he's "fucking insane". There's even a faction in Teikoku working together just to get rid of him.
  • Evil Overlord: According to Word of God all of them are this to their homeworlds. Apparently, Menma doesn't count.
  • Expy: In-Universe, Kakuzu compares them to Akatsuki, although out of universe they show signs of being based on The Light from Young Justice.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Whenever they convene with their rings, the other members appear as shadows with only their rings visible.
  • Multiversal Conquerors: Successful ones.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The ones who have them tend to be this:
    • Sun: The Warlord/The Devil of Shinobi.
    • Fire: Uzu's Blood Princess.
    • Ether: Akai Kazan, the Red Volcano.
    • Mifune: The Shinobi Buster.
  • Oddly Small Organization: Zigzagged. Teikoku only has ten core members at any time, but several of them have large amounts of resources or armies. Orochimaru/Lightning and Mei are implied to rule the Elemental Nations of their world, while Zetsu is confirmed to have a legion of millions at his command and to rule his world. But since they seem to be trying to take on the entire multiverse, this is still very small in the grand scheme of things, so they are trying to form a Badass Army from the multiverse's biggest Badasses as shown with them recruiting Kakuzu, Alpha, and Three.
  • Omniscient Council of Vagueness: Start out as this but are really a Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering.
  • Psycho Rangers: To the Arashi Clan and their allies.
  • Ring of Power: The ten core members all have rings that allow them to traverse the multiverse.
  • Standard Evil Organization Squad: They've got a Ten Tails Jinchuuriki Uchiha, a Crazy Sane anarchist, a Bloodline supremacist, a desert raider warlord, an army of parasitic plantmen, and Mad Scientist necromancer, an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy snake person, a slaver princess, an alien ghost of a Dark Messiah Knight Templar, a zombie samurai, a misanthropic clone, and a Satanic Archetype. The Warlord pulled out all the stops here.
  • We Need a Distraction: In spite of all of Teikoku's power and bluster this is what they really are. The Warlord made them a flashy Legion of Doom so everyone would be forced to focus on them while he worked on his real plan.


     Sun: The Warlord/Naruto Uzumaki 

Sun: The Warlord

  • 0% Approval Rating: Fully aware that he's the most hated being in the multiverse; he just doesn't care.
  • Axe-Crazy: He keeps it under control but it is obvious that he's just a boiling mass of insanity that is just waiting to explode. According to Tobi/Obito, "The survival rate of anything in the Warlord's vicinity tends to drop to... zero."
  • Badass Boast: To Red Zetsu:
    "Die? Since when are you under the delusion I can die? I am the Oni no Shinobi, the Devil of Shinobi. No one can comprehend my power and cunning. The battlefield is my realm, conquest my crown, and death my scepter. No one can match me. No one."
  • Badass Cape: A big billowing ominous black one.
  • Big Bad: Of Teikoku, as he was the founder, and is agreed by all to be the most powerful member.
  • Blood Knight: One of the few things he truly cares about anymore is the thrill of the fight and seeing the blood of his foes. He also enjoys watching other people's fights.
  • Chain Pain: His Uzumaki chakra chains. Also, through unknown methods, he has apparently made them more corrupt/twisted than biju chakra, according to Inari, and Kitsune says absorbing them is like drinking acid.
  • Consummate Liar: According to Word of God. Proven when he claims that Kazama is one of the ten ring bearers.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: They are made of hate.
  • Deconstruction: Of Naruto actually becoming Hokage, though the author states that he might actually be lying.
    • Later, of the Kage Bushin. He gained so many memories from overusing the technique that it led to My Skull Runneth Over, forcing him to transfer his memories to his clones to avoid going catatonic, and going insane even then.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Has this when he says that he's killed someone the protagonists know, or even his own allies.
  • The Dreaded: Every other member of Teikoku wants him dead, but they're all too scared of him to defy him. At least, not openly. At first.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: He can use the Rasengan.
  • Expy: According to Word of God, of Zhang Xianzhong, who was supposedly the only known Omnicidal Maniac in real life...
  • Fallen Hero: He used to be just like canon Naruto, but his failure as Hokage made him one of the most evil people in The Multiverse. At least, that's what he claims to Izanami and Yugito.
    • It later turns out he might have been telling the truth, before he went insane.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Everyone in Teikoku knows his friendliness is an act, but he keeps it up just to troll them.
  • Fighting a Shadow: His Shadow Clones are more solid, and can take actual damage, unless they're killed. It's entirely possible that we haven't seen him directly yet in the story; it seems unlikely he would risk himself unnecessarily.
  • Flight: He can do this.
  • Foreshadowing: The Warlord regularly likes to boast about how inhuman and monstrous he is which at a casual glance just seems like edgy talk or megalomania, it turns out he's telling the truth. The Warlord is in reality a bio computer inhabiting a colony of clones. He really isn't human anymore, his personality long erased by Kage Bushin overuse.
  • For the Evulz/It Amused Me: He founded Teikoku, killed trillions of people, and destroyed countless worlds, simply because he was bored.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: The other Evil Overlords he is allied with can't stand this guy.
  • Genius Bruiser: While the plot focuses on his power the Warlord is also a technological genius. He figured out how to create multiversal portals after seeing a rift, his rings give him extra chakra, and he invented a device called the Relay that can destroy two universes at once.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: He has intentions that, if they became known, would apparently make the entirety of Teikoku rebel against him just to survive. He's keeping the Arashi and their allies around so that they distract the rest of Teikoku while he carries out his plans... and partly so they can amuse him by fighting each other.
  • Invisibility: He can mask his chakra signature even while using chakra.
  • It's All About Me: His entire motivation revolves around this. He's outright convinced that only he deserves to exist. His endgame is too make himself the only 'real' Naruto to validate his solipsism and he's prepared to destroy the entire multiverse except World Prime to do it.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: He's the founder of Teikoku and wears lots of red.
  • Large and in Charge: Founder of Teikoku and between six and seven feet tall.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Before the Final Battle he mocks the Arashi clan, calling them fakes made by an "unimaginative god".
  • Light Is Not Good: His ring is "Sun", wears red and gold, and he's the boss of the Teikoku.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: He sees it as therapy.
  • Love Is a Weakness: He believes that true strength is only found when you become completely heartless.
  • Made of Evil: Sasuke thinks he is this.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He constantly plays mind games with Teikoku in order to pit them against each other, or force them to work together in order to stay in charge.
  • Master of All: In terms of combat and strategy the Warlord is the undisputed Ace of The Multiverse. He accomplished Orochimaru's dream of learning every jutsu through Kage Bushin and can use them better than specialists, his Genjutsu surpasses Itachi's, has better version of your techniques and learned his own Six Paths Sage Mode called Ravana.
  • Mask of Sanity: One that is ready to burn off at any moment.
    • It does in Chapter 57, and... hoo boy.
  • Master of Illusion: He can create illusions that take the Mangekyo to break.
  • Me's a Crowd: His Kage Bushin. This turns out to be the secret of his power.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: Has stated several different pasts in scenes that we see him in. The only constant so far is that he took over his world and eventually found out about other worlds.
  • My Skull Runneth Over: Overuse of the Kage Bushin led to this, forcing him to use the same clones that led to it to store his memories that wouldn't fit in his mind.
  • Not Even Human: What he's considered to be. The Warlord overloaded his mind with the Kage Bushin, eventually deleting his memories leaving only battle data. The Warlord's boasts of inhumanity are true, he's a biological war computer inside of an army of clone bodies.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: According to the Author's Note in chapter 35.
    • He destroys entire worlds for fun. And as it later turns out, out of hatred towards them.
    • His ultimate plan is to kill every Naruto making himself the 'real one'. To do this he's going to activate every Relay he's secretly built which will cause a domino effect that will destroy every world or multiverse with a Naruto in it then kill the Prime Naruto himself...and most likely World Prime when he grows bored of it.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Deidara says he once destroyed all life on an entire planet all by himself. Just to see if he could. He also can use a technique called Shiva to break the barriers between worlds and set them on a collision course.
  • The Peter Principle: He exemplifies this trope. He was made Hokage at the age of 15. 15-year old Naruto would be such a horrible politician that Epic Fail wouldn't even begin to describe his run in office. Ironically, despite preaching pacifism and peace, Naruto was only competent during combat and war at that age.
  • Playing with Fire: It's stated by Deidara he was responsible for literally burning an entire world to the ground.
  • Power of the Sun: Implied, since he has the Sun ring, and has Playing with Fire.
  • Red Baron: He's either the Warlord, or the Oni no Shinobi, the Devil of Shinobi.
  • The Rival: The only person he has apparently so far been unable to beat is an as-of-yet unnamed kunoichi. He claims it's because he lacks proper motivation, but since the Warlord is the one who said it, this is up for debate. It later turns out that said "rival" was Hinata Hyuuga, and that she was the only person from his world he spared.
  • Sadist: He considers watching others suffering to be a form of therapy and his entire fighting style revolves around making his opponents suffer as much as possible instead of being efficient.
  • The Sociopath: Openly and freely admits that he's heartless, and says that true strength only comes out when you care for nothing in the world.
  • Straw Misogynist: He doesn't count women as people. Though it's very possible that was just him being a troll.
  • Super Speed: As if this guy wasn't scary enough already...
  • Super Strength: Appears to have figured out Tsunade's strength-boosting technique.
  • That Man Is Dead: The Warlord tends to mix in references to how his old identity of Naruto is dead and how the Warlord was 'born'. This turns out to be more truthful than expected. This Naruto mentally died at age fifthteen.
  • Theme Naming: Names his techniques after Hindu gods but his ultimate technique is called Ravana, named after Indian Mythologies greatest Evil Overlord.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: He will blow up entire planets to get rid of threats to him.
  • Troll: He knows everybody hates him but acts like all of Teikoku is one big happy family and he's their loving father just to screw with them.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Inverted; he's Overestimating Badassery. He thinks Kazama is MUCH stronger than he is based on the Arashi clan's fight with the Shinigami.
    • Though then again, Kazama, a sixteen-year old kid, did pretty much blow up Konoha on his own shortly after meeting him, so perhaps his estimate wasn't too far off.
  • Unreliable Expositor: According to Word of God, you shouldn't trust anything he says.
  • Victory Is Boring: States this during Tsukuyomi's vision while he's fighting Susanoo.
  • Villainous Friendship: Wants to form one with Kazama. However, he also intends to kill him when he isn't amusing or useful to him anymore.
  • We Can Rule Together: One of the many villains making this sales pitch to Kazama. It's later revealed that, like usual, he's lying.
  • We Have Reserves: He considers every other member of Teikoku cannon fodder to throw at his enemies.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He apparently plans to pull this on the rest of Teikoku, as well as Kazama, when they are no longer amusing or useful to him.
  • You Monster!: The other leading members of Teikoku, who are very bad people, all see this guy as the lowest of the low.
    Hamura Ootsutsuki to Izanami: "He wears the same face as your most precious one, but he is a foul darkness in a man's skin. He is truly a monster, a blight upon creation."

     Ether: Deidara 

Ether: Deidara

  • Affably Evil/Faux Affably Evil: It's really, really hard to tell. It might depend on who he's talking to.
  • Badass Longcoat: This version wears a black trench coat.
  • Batman Gambit: His plan to invade Konoha hinged on Kakuzu being taken hostage. It worked.
  • Benevolent Boss: Downplayed, but there: he didn't use his biggest moves until after he found out his subordinates had been killed, and said no one gets away with killing them. Also ordered them to get medical attention when he saw they were wounded.
  • Bomb Throwing Anarchist: To a T: he even makes his own bombs!
  • Convection Schmonvection: Averted, as during his fight with Haku and Kuebiko, he grows hot enough that Kuebiko says he just has to get near them to hurt them. When Kuebiko teleports himself and Deidara away, his flesh literally melts from the heat. He got blown up shortly afterwards, but still.
  • Crazy Sane: He thinks he's the multiverse's Only Sane Man.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He can use Doton jutsu powerful enough to cause earthquakes.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He ordered Kakuzu paralyzed because he said money was better than art.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Besides the standard Teikoku hatred of the Warlord, he hates Alpha for being a Lawful Evil bitch that tried to destroy free will.
  • Evil Genius: He's surprisingly clever.
  • Having a Blast: His Bakuton.
  • The Heavy: His actions kickstarted and are currently driving the Teikoku arc.
  • Hero Killer: Set the standard for how dangerous Teikoku is, taking on two Hokage Danzo and Kuebiko and winning.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: What he had Sir Naruto do to Alpha and Three was rather disturbing, but you can't say they didn't have it coming.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He stops holding back his big moves after his subordinates are killed.
  • Mad Bomber: Just like in canon, though he seems to have standards, given that he thinks that the Warlord's love of death and destruction is sick and twisted.
  • Magma Man: The Yonbi gave him a lot of new tricks.
  • Not So Different: He points out that the Arashi clan is rather similar to Teikoku, with both organizations having near-impossible line-ups consisting of extremely dysfunctional people.
  • Nuke 'em: His C0 is this, like in canon.
  • One-Liner: He notes he needs to work on them.
  • One-Winged Angel: He's a pseudo-Yonbi Jinchuuriki.
  • Order Versus Chaos: A key part of this Deidara's philosophy is that Order is evil and he seeks to destroy it to save humanity.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: His bombs are easily able to destroy cities, and he's a psuedo-jinchuuriki to top it off.
  • Playing with Fire: He can use Katon jutsu.
  • Red Baron: He's called, "The Red Volcano".
  • Shut Up, Kirk!/Shut Up, Hannibal!: To Danzo:
    "Please, don't use that Will of Fire bullshit. I'm fed up with it. And before you start, don't feed me that everything I do is for the greater good, excuse. All you wanted was to prove you were in the right and everyone else was in the wrong. That's just how you dictators work. You delude yourselves into thinking you have higher goals then your own power, but trust me, you aren't the first self-righteous autocrat that I've offed."
  • Something About a Rose: This Deidara has a thing for blue roses. He says it's because it reminds him that life is short.
  • Starter Villain: Of Teikoku. And if this guy was the starter...
  • Sempai/Kohai: The sempai to Sir Naruto's kohai.
  • We Are as Mayflies: Part of his philosophy.

     Moon: Tobi/Obito Uchiha 

Moon: Obito Uchiha

  • 0% Approval Rating: His homeworld's denizens hate him so much that they prefer Kaguya to him.
  • Abusive Parents: He created everyone in the Road to Ninja world and his relationship with Menma is emotionally abusive making him his partner to mock the original Naruto for failing to stop him. He gets physically abusive when he nukes the Konoha he created just for a fleeting psychological advantage in his fight with Kazama.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To his 'favorite' son, Menma and Obito is a horrible father.
  • Ass Hole Victim: Obito's ultimate fate is to decide to let Kaguya reincarnate through himself as a final end of spite. The process destroys his soul with Kaguya using his transmogrified body as a suit, unknowing or uncaring if he still exists or not.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His true body, which he keeps on the moon.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He's a powerful Ten-Tails Jinchuuriki with aspirations to remake reality. In any other story, he could be the Big Bad. In Echoes, he's this to the Warlord.
  • The Bluebeard: Killed the Rin-Doll he made his wife without a second thought when he destroyed his Konoha. Given that Obito's been at it for decades and Menma says he's three years old this isn't the first time this has happened.
  • The Brute: His actual position among Teikoku's power structure. No one likes him, and the Warlord sees him as just another beat stick.
  • Cessation of Existence: His ultimate fate, Kaguya's revival destroyed his soul, even if Rin is still waiting for him in the Pure Land, Obito's not even getting that because of his own pettiness.
  • Deconstruction: A not so subtle Take That! against wish-fulfillment, and how unhealthy one's mindset has to be and the lengths they'd go to fulfill them. Kazama even lampshades how immature it all is - in a not so different light to canon Naruto's aspirations as a kid.
    • He's an even more thorough deconstruction of Obito's canon motivation wiping out all life in the name of his selfish and petty fantasies showing how unsympathetic a person like that really is as the scope of the meaningless death he caused is examined.
  • The Devil Is a Loser:: He fits this well. His first appearances portray him as polite with an Anti-Villain bent, he is a powerful Ten-Tails Jinchuuriki that has surpassed Hagoromo as he has figured out how to truly create life . But his casual omnicide, a fighting style that can be summed up as 'bullying', childish attitude, his treatment of his creations and wife, the utter contempt from everyone who personally knows him, and his defeat being because he's told how much of a disappointment he is shows that Obito is a loser on every conceivable level.
  • Disappointed in You: Being told this is what causes his defeat.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His true form looks like a ten-tailed squid the size of a Hidden Village, with a spherical center and a mouth containing enormous fangs and the eye of the Ten-Tails.
  • Evil Is Petty: Destroyed an entire world simply because he didn't like it. When he begins dying, his final act is to let Kaguya take control as a final "fuck you" to Kazama.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Obito proved himself worse than every other major villain in his homeworld: Madara, Kaguya, and Black Zetsu all end up playing second fiddle to Obito's evil.
  • Expy: A self-centered Psychopathic Manchild with Reality Warper powers that created a world solely for Wish Fulfillment is rather similar to Ray Thompson from an episode of Justice League called Justice League S 1 E 16 And 17 Legends.
  • Fighting a Shadow: The Obito in the village isn't the real thing. See Eldritch Abomination and Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever.
  • A God Am I: His Creating Life powers of his Infinite Izanagi have given him an obvious god complex, even referring to his homeworld as 'his garden'.
  • Hero Killer: He won the 4th shinobi war in his world, and later flattened the Konoha he made, as well as Menma.
  • Hypocrite: His hatred of the Warlord becomes empty when you realize that he's guilty of omnicide as well.
  • Irony: He is Obito as a villain but he never calls himself Madara or Tobi openly accepting his real name.
  • It's All About Me: This man is a purebred Uchiha. After Rin died, he used the Infinite Izanagi, despite that the jutsu would wipe out everyone else on the planet to create his own personal heaven. And he's planning to expand to other worlds, despite already having a personal paradise.
  • Kill 'em All: Killed everyone else in his world for his own satisfaction. And then he does it again.
  • Lack of Empathy: He cares nothing for the people he murdered who he did not know personally, and failed to replace in his new world, citing them as unneeded or unimportant.
  • Mask of Sanity: Obito starts out Faux Affably Evil, and sophisticated in his control, by the end of his arc, it all fades away revealing himself as 'frothing at the mouth' levels of insane.
  • Master of Illusion: His Moon ring implies this via Tsukuyomi, but it turns out to be a subversion. The Infinite Izanagi instead acts as a Reality Warper on his world, and makes everything he thinks about real.
  • A Million Is a Statistic: Has this mindset, he only sees people he personally knew as important enough for the Infinite Izanagi.
  • Moral Myopia: He claims that he respected the original Naruto and felt bad about killing him. This becomes complete bullshit given that he can't even bother to care about the people he personally knew and ruined like Minato, Kushina, and Kakashi. It becomes even more bullshit when you take Obito's treatment of Menma into perspective.
  • Not So Different: As he tells Kazama. And given that they're both Tobis...
    "Your words are my don't get it, do you? Do you know why you caught me? It's not because you're a detective. It's because we are alike. We think the same. You truly are the second coming of Obito Uchiha."
    • He himself is this to the Warlord. Both are monstrous, evil people that have killed everyone in entire worlds out of selfishness, have god-complexes, have the most powerful techniques in the story, and are hated by everyone. There are just two differences. One: Obito is a completely oblivious hypocrite. Two: He's a discount-bin version of the Warlord.
  • Older Than He Looks: Obito projects an illusion of his adult form to communicate with others with his true body degenerated into a giant squid. Obito's own point of view reveals that his Fourth Shinobi War happened decades ago making his age even more ambiguous.
  • Parental Incest: Creates copies of Rin from his chakra and brainwashes them into loving and marrying them. Given Menma's "three years ago" comment this has happened multiple times.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: As a Ten Tails Jinchuuriki Obito's Bijuudama can casually destroy city's and it all goes up from there. His greatest feat was casually destroying the moon.
  • Pride: Obito's success and feeling of validation of the path he took has caused his ego to grow out of control. This turns out to be a double-edged sword as its all he really has. When Kazama destroys his pride Obito becomes a sack of rotting meat in terms of threat.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: He is Obito after all, though he seems to have switched from Type B to Type C.
  • Psycho Psychologist: He's the village psychologist to predict ahead of time if any of the people he's created catch on to what he's done.
  • Reality Warper: His ultimate ninjutsu, the Infinite Izanagi, gives him this power over his entire homeworld. However, as it turns out, this only works for creation: he has to use old fashioned jutsu to destroy anything, and cannot alter what he makes beyond base programming.
  • Satellite Love Interest: The Rin he created has little personality, no agency, and does nothing but obey him. It makes you wonder how well Obito actually knew the real Rin.
  • The Sociopath: Kazama notes that he'll likely erase any of his constructs just for displeasing him. Turns out he's right.
  • The Starscream: The Warlord notes that he'll probably be backstabbed by Tobi once he thinks he can get away with it.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He's the jinchuuriki of the Shinju/Juubi.
  • Truly Single Parent: It's shown that he gives birth to every one of his chakra construct children by budding them off his body.
  • Un Skilled But Strong: While in Ninjutsu Obito is in the top tiers but thanks to turning into a giant squid, when he has to assume a human form he finds that his Taijutsu has atrophied thanks to decades spent in a inhuman form.
  • Up to Eleven: Why have an Infinite Tsukiyomi when you can have an Infinite Izanagi, instead?
  • Was Once a Man: He stretched the powers of the Ten-Tails so far that he's become a creature similar to Kaguya.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted. He sets himself up as this but his omnicide shows it's all about pure Wish Fulfillment to him.

     Wind: Menma Uzumaki 

Wind: Menma Uzumaki

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Subverted. Menma was actually born blonde, but dyed his hair black to help better define himself among his templates' counterparts.
  • Affably Evil: When he met Kazama, the two had a pleasant chat about their sides, a small theological debate, and Menma even gave Kazama advice on when he next saw Izanami.
  • Artificial Human: Really just a figment of Obitos machinations.
  • Blow You Away: Implied, since he has the Wind ring.
  • Canon Immigrant: Inverted: he appears to have come from the Road to Ninja movie's world. However, how his world came into being is an entirely different story from canon.
  • Chick Magnet: Both Sakura and Hinata have crushes on him. He hates this, because he knows that Obito programmed them to be in love with him and its all a sham. It most likely helped his suicidal tendencies along since nobody loved him of their own will.
  • Dark Chick: Sets himself up as this for Teikoku.
  • Death Seeker: His status as a fake and his artificial life has left him suicidal. He was willing to sell his soul to the Shinigami without a second of regret.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Upon discovering that he was just a chakra construct created by Obito.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: He doesn't seem to know what he wants to do.
  • Evil Makeover: He completely reinvented his look when he went evil.
  • Freudian Excuse: He once lived a perfect life as Naruto, then he deviated from his programming and gained free will. He learned that his loving parents were actually his siblings that were programmed to love him, his real father is a omnicidal shitstain of a squid monster who killed his original self, an All-Loving Hero who died horribly, just for a Power Fantasy. The only reason he exists is because said real father killed every real human being on the planet, then he is forced to join an interdimensional band of dictators in their mad plans to conquer reality and is forced to come to terms with being a fake and everything he loved being a lie. No wonder he's so nihilistic, suicidal, and depressed.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: He took finding out that he was a fake... poorly.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: Given how he is raisedAbusiveParents, it’s little surprise how little cares about people.
  • Irony: Canon-Naruto and Sasuke see themselves as brothers. Menma and Sasuke are actual brothers (though only Menma knows) but he's the one clone Menma isn't hung up on.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He agrees to help kill Obito/Moon.
  • Made a Slave: The only reason he's part of Teikoku is because Obito wanted some father-son bonding time.
  • Meaningful Rename: He changed his name to Menma after finding out about the Infinite Izanagi.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: After becoming aware that he was a fake/Artificial Human, he began to hate everything because he didn't know if he could actually feel anything, or if it was just caused by Obito to taunt him.
  • Mommy Issues: He really hates Kushina for some reason. He later says that he hates everything, including himself.
    • Daddy Issues: All of that is nothing compared to his relationship with his real father.
  • Monument of Humiliation and Defeat: He is one. Menma theorizes that Obito made him so that he could lord his superiority over Naruto.
  • Patricide: One of Menma's greatest dreams is to kill his father Obito Uchiha. Given that Obito is a murderous Psychopathic Manchild these feelings are completely justified.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being a gigantic misanthrope, he told Kazama that if he took advantage of the Sakura clone, he'd kill him.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Left Konoha before he joined Teikoku, smokes a pipe like the Third Hokage, dyed his hair... it's even lampshaded by Kazama.
  • Straw Nihilist: He starts out as one loathing himself and reality because of how he was born and his relationship with his father. Sakura and Kazama help him grow out of this.
  • Token Good Teammate: Is this to the Teikoku: he sees world hopping as a hobby, and claims that while he's done some bad things, he's never burned a village to the ground like Kazama or many of his colleagues. It turns out that he was Made a Slave and he jumps ship as soon as he sees the opportunity.
  • Younger Than He Looks: Menma might look like a teenager, but he's only three years old.

     Fire: Kushina Uzumaki 

  • Anti-Magic: She effortlessly canceled out a jutsu from Yugito boosted by the Nibi.
  • Arch-Enemy: Sees all Mikoto as this, due to her own Mikoto selling her out to Kumo.
  • Archer Archetype: Apparently she practices archery in her free time. It later turns out she uses chakra arrows as a form of attack.
  • Berserk Button: She acted bored and lazy until she saw Izanami/Mikoto, and entered Tranquil Fury at the sight of her.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She has the full power of Kurama at her disposal, along with being a sealmaster and knowing the secrets to Ninshuu, but unless her revenge is involved she's very lazy.
  • Dumb Muscle: Kushina has a lot of firepower but is none too bright.
  • Create Your Own Villain: She was created by Mikoto Uchiha's act of spite.
  • Collector of the Strange: Her favorite hobby seems to be capturing Mikotos then leaving them to rot or torturing them.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: According to Metal, she's done this in the past.
  • Deal with the Devil: Made a deal with her world's Kyuubi in order to escape Kumo/destroy it after she hit her Despair Event Horizon.
  • De-Power: During her fight with Izanami the Uchiha uses her Sharingan to seal her connection to the Kyuubi cutting off her Nine Tails Chakra Mode.
  • The Dreaded: Became this to her world after she destroyed Kumo.
  • Driven to Suicide: After Mifune and Hamura are both beaten, and is fatally impaled by Izanami she ends her life rather than let a Mikoto be the one to kill her.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: For all his sociopathy, indifference and laziness, she truly loved her teacher General Mifune.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Inverted; she's a princess (or is called one) and one of the Teikoku.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Izanama.
  • Evil Redhead: Appears to be one.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Inflicted one on her Mikoto for betraying her.
  • Foil: To Izanami, Kushina was an outcast turned princess, Izanami was a political princess turned outcast and courtesan. Both adapted to their lifestyles frighteningly well.
  • Foreshadowing: Her existence was hinted at when Deidara said that he got some seals from a friend who was a Uzumaki.
  • For Want of a Nail: This Kushina apparently never befriended her world's Minato. And when her Mikoto hated her for not returning her feelings.
  • Fusion Dance: The Kushina we see is actually a fusion of her and Kurama, but to what degree is unknown.
  • Golden Super Mode: She can use the Kyuubi Chakra Mode.
  • Harem Seeker: She wondered when she met the Arashi if "there are a few pretty boys worth sparing among them."
  • Hypocrite:
    • While she may be right that Izanami projects her feelings for Ame-Kushina onto others, she's forgetting that she projects her hatred for Fire-Mikoto onto her counterparts who never wronged her.
    • While she's right that Izanami lives in the past, Kushina forgets that she's never moved past Mikoto's betrayal and lives in the past as well.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Is defeated and fatally impaled by Izanami, causing her to commit suicide.
  • Literal Split Personality: The key to her fighting style. Kushina is a composite of herself, Kurama, and Black and is at her strongest when the three fight together. Together they are so strong it took Kazama, Izanami, and Indra fighting together to bring them down.
  • Misplaced Retribution: To all Mikoto for what hers did to her. Her current target is Izanami, the Mikoto who is the most loyal to Kushina. Then she moves onto the Mikoto of the Godaime-Itachi's world, who has no clue about what's going.
  • Never My Fault: To utterly ludicrous extremes. She believes that every bad thing she does is Mikoto's fault, not her's.
  • Not So Different: Despite dedicating her life to hating Mikoto if you gave one of them the right colored hair dye she could use Mikoto as a mirror.
  • People Zoo: Apparently has one for all the Mikotos that she encounters.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Destroyed two Hidden Villages by herself in her backstory.
  • Playing with Fire: Implied, since she has the Fire ring in Teikoku.
  • Power Nullifier: Can cancel out ninjutsu using a seal dubbed 'Return to Nothingness.'
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her color scheme.
  • Red Baron: Uzu's Blood Princess.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: It shows that something is definitely off about this Kushina. It's later revealed to be her Kyuubi's influence.
  • Reincarnation: She is the reincarnation of her worlds Black Zetsu who died on the moon. Yes, really.
  • Satellite Character: To a dead woman. Kushina sees herself as superior and free but even in the grave Mikoto dictates her entire life.
  • Sadist: She admits that conquering got boring a long time ago, but seeing any Mikoto in pain and destroying her life never fails to feel good.
  • Smug Super: This Kushina is incredibly conceited and arrogant, however, her Superpower Lottery means she can back it up and do whatever she wants.
  • Soul Power: While it hasn't been seen onscreen much, she can use Ninshuu.
  • Superpower Lottery: On top of her seals and Uzumaki vitality, she can use the full power of Kyuubi Chakra Mode, has her own Sage Mode, and can summon the souls of her past lives to aid her in battle.
  • Super Mode: Has her own Sage Mode, much to Kazama's chagrin, in addition to her Kyuubi Chakra Mode.
  • Super Speed: Fast enough to keep up with a person who can teleport.
  • Vague Age: Like Obito Kushina's age is hard to pin down. She obviously lived past her canon death date but her Uzumaki vitality and how off course her world has gone makes it impossible to guess.
  • Villain Has a Point: Manages to be right about Izanami's character while being a complete hypocrite about it.
  • Villainous Legacy: Fire Mikoto has been dead for years, but thanks to her betrayal and the lessons Kushina took from it, the world had to deal with the monster she created.
  • You Are What You Hate: Kushina hates Mikoto, who was an obsessive, lustful women with no life outside of Kushina. She has become exactly like that, an empty women with no life outside of obsessing over Mikoto.
  • You Wouldn't Shoot Me: Even after being defeated by Izanami she's convinced she'd never be able to kill her. Then Kushina pushes back too hard, sealing her fate.
  • Woman Child: Sort of; Hamura notes her as, deep down, somewhat of a "scared, lonely child."
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Her home was destroyed, her best friend sold her out to people who wanted to extract a demon from her and kill her, and her deal with the Kyuubi didn't help her mental state.


     Lighting: Orochimaru 

  • Animal Motif: The Snake. Were you expecting something else?
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Like in canon: however, he can back his arrogance up.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He can figure out the secrets behind his enemies techniques and then improve upon them with a glance. Chibaku notes he uses his Sharingan better than most Uchiha.
  • Elemental Powers: He has...
    • Blow You Away: A wind jutsu that continues blowing even after he uses it.
    • Playing with Fire: He copied Karasu's Fenghuang and improved it simultaneously.
    • Shock and Awe: His main element shown so far. Also has the Lightning ring, to make it clear.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the Arashi's Sasori: Both seek to be immortal and achieved it in a different way, have/had an apprentice, which they cared/taught for in different ways: Sasori taught Chibaku to be Weak, but Skilled via puppetry and a variety of supplementary jutsu, and cared for him despite being The Stoic, while Orochimaru taught the Sound!Naruto to be Unskilled, but Strong by mixing his Cursed Seal and the Kyuubi, and didn't care for him.
  • Killed Midsentence: "You mot-"
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's almost as fast as the Sound-Naruto.
  • Magic Eye: His *Sigh* Mangekyo Sharingan... remember when these things used to be a big deal?
    • Guardian Entity: His Yamata-no-Orochi jutsu.
    • Hellfire: Amaterasu's Breath, which he can channel through his Yamata-no-Orochi.
    • Power Copying: He's the first person in the story to actually copy a person's jutsu with the Sharingan on-screen.
  • Master Swordsman: He uses a sword in combat against Inari, Chibaku, and Karasu.
  • Power Nullifier: He can use a seal that shuts down people's chakra and organs.
  • Smug Super: He's as smug as ever, but this version of Orochimaru has got more than enough power and cunning to back it up.
  • Taught by Experience: The thing that allowed this Orochimaru into the top-tiers was that whenever he made a mistake he made sure he learned from it and developed techniques that would cover up his weaknesses or create a new technique that could counter a new threat. Chibaku sends him into a Villainous Breakdown by saying he only learned from what others did, and that he hadn't had an original thought in years.
  • Reality Ensues: Orochimaru is still a sociopath, and after the Sound!Naruto dies at Chibaku's hands, he says he was expendable, and that while he had a "special place" in his heart, he still had several other apprentices.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After Karasu destroys his ring.
  • We Have Reserves: Apparently has several apprentices besides the Sound-Naruto, and taught the Sound-Naruto a flawed fighting style on purpose to ensure he wouldn't be able to backstab him successfully.

     Water: Mei Terumi 

Water: Mei Terumi

  • Affably Evil: She's never anything but calm and polite, even to the Arashi after she reveals herself to be The Mole.
  • Anti-Villain: She's her worlds undisputed dictator but cares about her people.
  • Dark Action Girl: Formidable and on the dark side of the two sides.
  • Dramatic Irony: The readers know that she's The Mole, but the heroes don't. This is no longer true: however, she is acting as The Starscream to Teikoku, and wants to work with the Arashi to stop the Warlord.
  • Killed Off for Real: In a Last Stand against the Warlord.
  • Magma Woman: She can use Lava Release.
  • Making a Splash: Appears to be at least as good as Kuebiko at this.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Not so much bitch, but very manipulative and willing to use who she can to gain an advantage.
  • The Mole: As of Chapter 40, "Taking a Rest", she has replaced the Mei Terumi in the Arashi clan, and is acting as this inside the clan.
  • Pet the Dog: She genuinely went out of her way to comfort Kazama after Izanami almost died.
  • The Starscream: Is acting as this to the Warlord, along with Earth/Kabuto and Steel.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The Warlord described her as a "wannabee savior." He wasn't lying about that at the very least.

     Earth: Kabuto Yakushi 

Earth: Kabuto Yakushi

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Is smart enough to see the secrets of a technique after only watching it once.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Implied, since he has the Earth ring. It's possible it's just a reference to his Edo Tensei, however.
  • Graceful Loser: Kabuto is ultimately not a Smug Snake. He treats being outsmarted and defeated rather well.
  • For Science!: Seems to be his ultimate goal, reacting with glee when he seems something new to understand.
  • Insufferable Genius: Everyone hates him, but he's too smart and useful to get rid off.
  • It's All About Me: Admits he only cares about keeping his lab worlds safe.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: He made the Madara of his world his slave. Such a horrid crime.
  • Mad Scientist: Smart enough to easily understand dimensional physics.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: While Kabuto can fight he prefers to leave the action to Madara and his Edo Tensei.
  • The Necromancer: Can use Edo Tensei.
  • The Starscream: Is working with Water and Steel to stop the Warlord.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Out of all of the Teikoku defectors he is the least sympathetic.
  • Wild Card: He's on his own side, nobody else's. He's happy to weaken either the alliance or Teikoku, but would prefer to see the alliance win, rather than the Warlord.
    • Later joins the alliance officially after discovering the Warlord's endgame.

     Wood: Zetsu 

Wood: Red Zetsu

  • Adaptational Badass: Zetsu is a competent spy in canon, but this thing can tame bijuu, fight Kage, and has successfully committed genocide on his whole home world barring the Dark Wolf, Tobi, Spiral, Karin, and a few dozen other humans.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: His last, desperate attempts to hold off the Dark Wolf failed, and his Last Words to her were just depressing.
    "I hate you... because on the day of your birth... you were happy to be born..."
  • Archenemy: He and the Dark Wolf are this to each other.
  • Badass Boast:
    "This world is mine, wolf pup. From the highest mountain, to the deepest cave. The four of you are the only humans I haven't conquered... yet. I don't own the land. I am the land itself!"
  • Big Brother Is Watching You: Zetsu is the land, so he knows everything that is happening. Resistance is futile.
  • Brains and Brawn: He's the Brains to Madara and Kaguya's Brawn. Its obvious which is superior, given that both got royally fucked over by Zetsu.
  • Brains Evil, Brawn Good: Zigazagged by him and the Dark Wolf: while Word of God is she's Lawful Evil, he's the clear bad guy, since he massacred almost all of his world's humans. He's clearly smarter, but admits that she has always been stronger than him. Later subverted when he brings out his Corrupted Sage Mode.
  • The Chessmaster: He caused a global war by using his shapeshifting skills, and later attacked with his legions after the world's shinobi had exhausted themselves.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He truly loves his Zetsu children, seeing them as his legacy in case he dies.
  • Expy: Of Nurgle, according to Word of God.
  • Fighting a Shadow: After he tossed Kaguya's soul out of the God Tree, he inserted his into it, and if his 'body' is killed, he can create a replacement easily.
  • Genius Bruiser: A hulking red abomination that is also a cunning military strategist and chessmaster.
  • Green Thumb: Can use the Mokuton, and do it well enough to control Bijuu.
  • Hijacking Cthulhu: He took over the God Tree and made Kaguya his bitch.
  • It's Personal: With the Dark Wolf, due to how many of his Zetsus she's killed.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: He admits that the Dark Wolf always had the edge on him, but he quickly gains an advantage in their final battle once he activates his Corrupted Sage Mode.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: He's done many horrible things, but killing Madara and Kaguya must have given him some seriously good karma.
  • Large and in Charge: Apparently twice the size of normal humans, and leads an army of millions of smaller white Zetsus.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: He's the only red-skinned Zetsu in his world.
  • Oh, Crap!:Upon realizing that Spiral had cut his connection to the World Tree, leaving his Sage Mode unusable, and realizing the Dark Wolf was still nearby.
  • Sadist:
    "Nothing smells better than false hope. That's why man is my favorite animal: you're the only species in this world that can feel true despair.
  • Smug Super:
    "It's not arrogance when you can back up your claims."
  • Super Mode: Has developed a Corrupt Sage Mode that makes him incredibly strong and fast.
  • The Social Darwinist: Believest only the most formidable series should survive, but fails to realize the irony of his words.
  • Superior Species: He sees Zetsu as superior to humanity and seeks to replace them as the dominant species.
  • To Serve Man: Best shown when he remembers how he ate Kushina alive during his edition of the Kyuubi attack.
  • The Virus: Is like one in tactics, according to Word of God.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Downplayed: while Word of God states he's nowhere near as strong as the story's top ninjas, and he usually throws his army at his enemies, studies their tactics, and attacks when he has a perfect plan, he's still extremely powerful compared to most shinobi. Even without Corrupted Sage Mode.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Due to the Zetsu being made from tropical plants, cold forces him to retreat. Part of the reason he joined Teikoku was to get their members to eliminate the remaining humans of his world.
  • We Have Reserves: Millions of them, in fact.

     Metal: Temari 

Metal: Temari

  • Even Evil Has Standards: Has little love for Lightning/Orochimaru, and makes no secret of this fact. Also apparently dislikes torture.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Implied, since she has the Metal ring in Teikoku.
  • The Leader: Is apparently her world's Kazekage.
  • The Starscream: Is working with Mei/Water and Kabuto/Earth to stop the Warlord.


     Sir Naruto - The Clown 

Sir Naruto - The Clown


Sound Naruto

  • Bad Boss: To anyone working under him: he has a tendency to blame his henchman to avert people from blaming him, or kill them for lesser offenses or things out of their control.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: When Karasu says he will avenge Kurotsuchi (his world's version was Karasu's girlfriend), the Sound!Naruto asks him which one it was.
    Sound!Naruto: Listen, moron, the day I killed your girlfriend was perhaps the worst day of your life, but for me... it was Tuesday.
    Karasu: It was a MONDAY, you murderous asshole!!
  • Crippling Overspecialization: He's as fast as Minato, but when Chibaku manages to keep up with his incredible speed, he has no other tactics or jutsu to fall back on besides his speed and Make Me Wanna Shout jutsu.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He kills the Sound Four for failing to extract both of Karasu's Sharingan.
  • The Dragon: To Teikoku-Orochimaru/Lightning.
    • Co-Dragons: He's currently on loan to Deidara, forcing him to work alongside Sir Naruto.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Chibaku: both had a missing-nin teacher who took them in, and had differing opinions: Sasori taught Chibaku all he knew, and despite his seeming heartlessness, cared for him greatly. Lightning!Orochimaru taught the Sound!Naruto a flawed fighting style intentionally, feigned affection towards him, and ultimately saw him as expendable.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Averted; he turns out to be rather bad at hand-to-hand when Chibaku manages to keep up with him.
  • Healing Factor: While powerful, it didn't save him from Chibaku's Death Ray.
  • Jerkass: Little more than an unlikable prick when all's said and done.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Chibaku's Death Ray.
  • Lack of Empathy: He kills his own men without batting an eyelash, and for minor offenses.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Deconstructed: when Chibaku manages to keep up with him, he has no other tactics to fall back on save his Sonic Blast.
  • Limited Wardrobe: He apparently prefers gray uniforms.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: His Sonic Blast jutsu.
  • One-Winged Angel: He gets this by mixing the Kyuubi's power with his Cursed Seal.
  • Only Friend: Sort of: he laments why the deceased Kimimaro had to be the only other Oto-nin who was really sane/competent.
  • Super Speed: He's as fast as Minato at level 3: he found out the hard way Kuebiko was even faster.
  • Up to Eleven: He can use the Cursed Seal at level 3.
  • You Have Failed Me: To the Sound Four: read above.


Mifune - The Shinobi Buster

     Spoiler Character 

Hamura Ootsutsuki - The Fallen Sage

  • Be Careful What You Wish For: His Motive Rant is laced with this taunt. Hamura notes that many people searched for the answer to peace. He gave them one by torturing them into slavery, thus establishing peace.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Kushina's out for revenge and cheap thrills, Hamura's in it to judge everyone Guilty. They work together disturbingly well.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Hamura isn't a holier than thou space elf. He hates shinobi, and holds a special hate in his heart for his Hyuuga descendants because of the Caged Bird Seal.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: His greatest and most secret fear. Hamura knows that after what he's done there's noting but damnation awaiting him, so he stays in the living world as a ghost.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite becoming more like his mother, he still loves and respects his brother, the Sage.
  • Evil Counterpart: He's become this to his brother. Hagoromo created Ninshuu to make life prosper but it was corrupted into Ninjutsu by Indra's pettiness. Hamura purposely used pure Ninshuu to corrupt and enslave life of his own volition after seeing Humans As The Real Monsters.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despite being a misanthrope that sees humanity as scum he sees the Warlord as a special type of sick and wrong, and despite his loyalty to Kushina, he found whatever torture she did to Mikoto to be disturbing to discuss despite that Mikoto being a horrible person that validates his negative view of humanity.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Discussed; He believes his mother using force to achieve peace wasn't such a bad idea after all.
  • Fallen Hero: He once had faith in his brothers plans for peace and Ninshuu. After Indra screwed everything up and he watched one thousand years of war, he started his plan to punish humanity.
  • Foil: His Caged Bird Seals are ones to the Infinite Tsukiyomi. Both put humanity into an And I Must Scream situation but one keeps the victim safe and pacified through happy dreams. His Caged Bird Seal is the opposite, it turns the body into a weapon he can control while the mind is trapped in isolation and is endlessly tortured. Hamura has turned his entire world into his personal torture machine to contrast the Infinite Tsukiyomi being a brainwashing plant.
  • Hanging Judge: He's out the judge the multiverse for its crimes and is just waiting to slam down the Gavel for a Guilty verdict for everyone.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Believes this after watching the shinobi world for roughly a millennium and all the damage that was done with ninjutsu.
  • Humanity on Trial: And they got judged with a very Guilty verdict.
  • Knight Templar: He's out to bring justice to all Karma Houdinis. The problem is to him everyone is Guilty by his extreme view of justice.
  • Lethal Harmless Powers: He was the one who turned Ninshuu into an art of domination and torture. He's effectively discredited Hagoromo's entire life's work by showing how Ninshuu is worse than Ninjutsu when it comes to establishing peace.
  • Magic Eye: His Tenseigan.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: The raining champ of misanthropy in Echoes.
  • Mommy Issues: Manages to encapsulate how much he hates Kaguya by just saying "mother". Given how proud of himself Black is, whatever happened on the moon most likely makes these feelings rather justified.
  • Murder by Inaction: He gets pinned by this by Menma. Hamura kept to his vow of non-intervention letting Black perform his Final Solution on the Ootusuki.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: He can still interact with the world, despite being dead for over 1000 years.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Other users of Six Paths can only make ten Truth-Seeking Balls and are stuck with that amount. Hamura? Hamura can make thousands of Truth-Seeking Balls without pause.
  • The Stoic: Due to his misanthropy and apathy.
  • Soul Power: He taught Kushina and Mifune Ninshuu.
  • Torture Technician: His entire world is a torture machine designed to punish humanity for their crimes.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Hamura starts out as cool as ice, easily breaking people with his cynical lectures. But the mix of mistaking Tobi's Rinnegan for his brother's, Menma's mouth, and Kaguya making a Heel–Face Turn causes him to break down and become a Death Seeker.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He watched as mankind corrupted his brother's Ninshuu into ninjutsu and used it solely for harming others; he's rather bitter about this.
  • You Do NOT Want to Know: Whatever Kushina did to Mikoto was so horrible he refuses to tell the story.

     Spoiler Character 

"Black" Zetsu

  • Adaptational Badass: In spite of all his plans, without someone to hide behind Black Zetsu was a Dirty Coward. This model, however, is not afraid to get into the fight, fighting Kazama directly, shows a mastery of Ninjutsu, and can use Wood Release without a White Zetsu host body, fought on par with Hamura while alive and then goes toe-to-toe with Indra..
  • Badass Boast: "There was a war on the moon and I won it! I sowed dissent among the gods, paved the heavens with blood, and poisoned the mind of a saint. Tell me, little boy, how can you defeat which only the divine could kill?"
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Proud of his own wickedness, Black's Badass Boast shows that he has no pretensions of how evil he is.
  • Death by Adaptation: In canon, Black Zetsu is still alive, albeit sealed in a moon with the Gedo Mazou in a pocket dimension and is implied to be immortal. This one died centuries ago on the moon, killed by Hamura after wiping out the Ootsutsuki. Alas, this turned out to be a mistake and he returned as Kushina's reincarnation.
  • The Dragon: In life, he was this to Kaguya, in death, he helps out his reincarnation, Kushina.
  • Dragon Ascendant: While Kaguya created Black to free her, he decided to do things his way.
  • For the Evulz: Black is a ghost connected to the Kyuubi Jinchuuriki, making reviving Kaguya all but impossible. He's fine with that, letting him pursue his own dreams of spreading evil and misery to feel better about himself.
  • Green Thumb: He can use Wood Release without a White Zetsu.
  • Fantastic Racism: Towards the Uchiha clan, he mocks them, referring to them as '"A race who loves themselves'' too much!" He's not completely wrong.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: In the end Black hates everyone and everything; underneath his worship for her, Black is heavily implied to hate Kaguya to most for creating him.
  • Insistent Terminology: He is just Black, not Black Zetsu.
  • Irony: In canon Black Zetsu failed, had a Villainous Breakdown, and suffered a Fate Worse than Death by being sealed into a moon with his mother's corpse. Black died on a moon happy, having successfully accomplished all of his goals.
  • Jerkass: Black is rather proud of how much of a bastard he is.
  • Kill 'em All: He was somehow behind the death of all Ootsutsuki on the moon, barring Hamura while alive.
  • Man on Fire: Instead of appearing as a shadowy blob he manifests as a man made of black fire.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Black's been dead for years at least. But thanks to Kushina's Shiranui he can incarnate as a ghost to aid his reincarnation in battle.
  • Predecessor Villain: To his own reincarnation, Kushina.
  • Pride: Black is tremendously proud of what he is and what he's accomplished.
  • Satanic Archetype: He is a creature made of darkness and in life he destroyed a civilization with his silver tongue and started its Messiah's path to evil. Then death itself couldn't stop him and he returns as a man made of black fire, happy to despoil to world again.
  • Sycophantic Servant: Deconstructed. Being created as Kaguya's Yes-Man was what made him hateful enough to become a Satanic Archetype.
  • Unintentional Back Up Plan: Black should have been done on the moon a thousand years ago, but things in his world then went ridiculously well for him. He reincarnated into the Kyuubi Jinchuuriki who was sent to her death by her 'best friend' over being rejected, this caused a chain of events that caused Kushina to be mentored by Hamura, teaching her a Ninshuu technique that let her revive her past lives as ghosts, thus bring Black back into the living world as a cognizant individual with the resources and power to take on the multiverse.
  • Walking Spoiler: The fact that he's dead and who he reincarnated into makes him a colossal lategame spoiler.

     Madara Uchiha: Amaterasu Variant 

Madara Uchiha - The Slave

  • Ambiguously Evil: Since he's based off of Amaterasu this Madara was most definitely not a good man in life. In death as Kabuto's slave, however, the few lines of dialogue he speaks hint at a changed man.
  • Boring, but Practical: How did this Madara best old age without Mikaboshi or a pointlessly convoluted Gambit Roulette? Earth Grudge Fear, that's how.
  • Came Back Strong: He was a monster that could kill a Tailed Beast in life, as an Edo Tensei zombie his regeneration lets him use all Eight Gates all the time with no drawbacks.
  • Demoted to Dragon: He's Kabuto's top Edo Tensei zombie.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Kabuto has no use for honor or showboating so he's overwritten Madara's personality into a kill-bot. His method of attack is Susanoo, sword spam, and the Eight Gates at the same time.
  • Time-Limit Boss: You have to defeat him before he releases all Eight Gates or he basically wins.
  • The Undead: He died in Kabuto's world but now finds that the shoes on the other foot as Kabuto's top Edo Tensei zombie.


Example of:
