    General Tropes 

General Tropes

  • Adaptational Heroism: While they are not heroes now they were much nicer people in their backstory's and all of them willingly formed Konoha in a legitimate desire for peace and not because they were forced too. They only lose it after their brother's death followed by Hashirama proving himself as to much of a General Failure.
  • Alien Blood: Thanks to the magic of Senju DNA.
  • Badass Grandpa: Tsukuyomi, Susanoo, and Amaterasu are all SS-rank (Specifically noted by Zabuza to translate into "flee on sight"). The only other people in the story that qualify for this are Hashirama, Minato, The Warlord, Pain, The Sage of the Six Paths, Hanzo, and possibly the Third Raikage, and this is a fic where S-rank fighters are actually rather common.
  • Big Bad Triumvirate: The original formation of their relationship.
  • Body Horror: The original three all got their faces blasted off during their fight with Hashirama and Mito at the Valley of the End.
  • Dark Messiah: They all have Messiah complexes of varying levels of intensity, Susanoo being the standout example.
  • Deal with the Devil: They all made a deal with the Shinto devil, Amatsu-Mikaboshi.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: For all their flaws, they all still love their brother.
  • Evil Old Folks: Everyone except Izanami is old and evil.
  • Hero Killer: Whenever they show up, someone dies.
  • Intangible Man: Mostly Tsukiyomi, but Susanoo, Amaterasu, and Izanami can stimulate intangibility in their own way.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: They all wear masks to hide their identities and their rather hideous faces.
  • Power of the Void: They have been associated in some way or another Amatsu-Mikaboshi.
  • Revenge: No matter how well intentioned they think they are their plans always manage to include "Burn Konoha to the ground" as a key part of their endgame. Even Izanami seems to want revenge on someone or something.
  • Space Master: Tsukiyomi has dozens of sharingans, Susanoo has the rinnegan, Amaterasu has two izagini, and Izanami has kamui.
  • Visionary Villain: Each of them has a long-term goal, though they all differ from the other.

    Tsukiyomi 

Tsukiyomi - The Deceiver

  • Affably Evil: Even lampshaded by the Nibi.
  • And Then What?: After Konoha's destruction he has no clue what to do.
  • The Bad Guys Win: He successfully convinced Kazama to destroy Konoha. That's a win for the ages.
  • Bad Liar: Despite being the stories ultimate Manipulative Bastard he can't lie worth a damn. He's told a grand total of one lie in the entire story and it was described as a badly told lie.
  • Badass Armfold: From time to time.
  • Badass Grandpa: Over ninety, yet still a major asskicker.
  • Badass Longcoat: His Akatsuki coat.
  • Big Bad: The first one of the story, due to creating the original Madara Trio.
  • The Chessmaster: Best shown during the Ame arc. With only four pieces he took over an entire country (or at least partial control).
  • Chess Motif: The Knight.
  • Cool Old Guy: He really tries hard to be one.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: He was in his element during the Ame arc.
  • Enemy Mine: He has teamed up with Kazama to kill Hanzo and Yagura.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Kazama. They both came from formerly great clans, they are former idealists that were both broken down by the evils of the world, and both have rejected conventional morality to make their visions a reality.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: He has almost a hundred spare Sharingan on his arms to spam Izanagi with.
  • Evil Genius: Very intelligent, with no arrogance to cause him to overestimate his skills or underestimate his enemies, and can come up with gambits of all sorts in a matter of seconds.
  • Evil Mentor: He has become one to Kazama, teaching him everything from Jutsu, combat skills, philosophy, to valuable life lessons.
  • Friendly Enemy: Tsukiyomi tries to be one to Kazama. And it has become somewhat mutual thanks to a mixture of Stockholm Syndrome and Lima Syndrome.
  • Glass Cannon: Tsukiyomi describe's himself as one. But with his Intangible Man powers, combined with his incredible skills, Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, and almost a hundred spare Sharingan to spam Izanagi with, he comes off more as an Advancing Wall of Doom.
  • Graceful Loser: He takes Kazama turning good extremely well.
  • Half Truth: A master of this trope due to being a Bad Liar.
  • Hazy Feel Turn: After Konoha's destruction and Kazama's temporary Heel–Face Turn he loses all motivation and decides to spend his time helping out Kazama.
  • The Leader: Of the trio. A type I to be exact.
  • Magical Eye: His Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, and his is noticeably the strongest Sharingan in the story.
    • Guardian Entity: His Susanoo, which takes the form of a two faced four armed demon. According to Word of God, this is because it represents the combination of his and Izuna's ideals.
    • Hellfire: Amaterasu.
    • Mind Rape: Tsukiyomi. He’s a master of this psychologically, mentally, and physically.
  • Manipulative Bastard: His knowledge of human psychology is superb, and he's a master of the Half Truth, which makes him an even better manipulator because he never technically lies to you.
  • Nerves of Steel: No matter what new trick you pull out of your ass, or what fancy new Next Tier Power-Up you gain, it is impossible to make him lose his cool. The only exception was when he saw Kuebiko.
  • Older and Wiser: This Madara benefited from old age the most.
  • Parental Substitute: He's the best father-figure Kazama has ever had. Yeah, it's not a good thing that the poor kids life has been so crappy that the best father-figure he's ever had is the Big Bad.
  • Playing with Fire: The only Katon user better than him is the Sage of the Six Paths.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Comes with having the Akatsuki coat being his trademark look.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Tsukiyomi discovered chess while he was Walking the Earth. He has begun to teach his apprentice, Kazama.
  • The Social Expert: Can easily predict how the masses will respond to different events and can turn it to his advantage.
  • The Spock: The calmest and most collected of the Trio.
  • Team Dad: A rare evil version. He's almost half-way heroic when acting as Kazama's father figure.
  • Technicolor Fire: Justified, because of his complete mastery of Katon jutsu.
  • Villain Protagonist: Tsukiyomi has become one during the Alternate Amegakure Arc and onward.
  • Villainous Rescue: He's so good at this trope that you might mistake him for a heroic character. From saving Kazama and Naruko from Susanoo. And then showing up in the nick of time with Zetsu to save Izanami's life.

    Susanoo 

Susanoo - The Destroyer

  • Badass Grandpa: Even if he acts like a twelve year old.
  • Badass Transplant: His Rinnegan.
  • Because Destiny Says So: This is his justification for ANYTHING that happens in his life.
  • Berserk Button: Telling him fate doesn't exist will make him lose it big time.
  • The Brute: Personality-wise. He even has a series of Six Paths of Pain.
  • Chess Motif: The Rook.
  • Dark Messiah: Of the he actually believes he's the Messiah variety.
  • Determinator: After Mikaboshi cuts him off he forces himself back to life with pure willpower and using his Senju DNA and Rinnegan as focus points.
  • Eye Beams: He somehow figured out that the Rinnegan can fire energy blasts of some kind.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Naruko. They are both Heroic Wannabes. But while Susanoo thinks he's The Chosen One and the Child of Prophecy, he is most obviously not and always goes on and on about Because Destiny Says So. While Naruko says Screw Destiny and refuses to believe in it, while unwittingly fulfilling everything the Child of Prophecy predicts.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: For all of his many flaws he finds misogyny to be disgusting.
  • Evil Gloating: Sometimes indulges in this. Some of his dialogue is even described as gloating.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He ironically fits many of the qualifications with his large arsenal of spell-like jutsu, his dark robes, and necromancy.
  • The Fatalist: Susanoo is a self-admitted one. His soul is even made of fatalism, according to Yugito's Soul Vision.
  • Five-Man Band: Susanoo has created a set of Path's that make Pain and Tobi's look like C-List Fodder in comparison. None of the paths are very happy about this, save Izanagi.
  • Flight: With his Gravity Master powers.
  • Genius Bruiser: When he isn't bitching about destiny, Susanoo is a far more threatening antagonist; Izanami, a Consummate Liar, learned that lesson at (almost) the cost of her life.
  • Healing Factor: Figured out how Kabuto's regeneration jutsu works.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: His Fatal Flaw and the main reason why he isn't unstoppable.
  • Heroic Wannabe: A very dark take of this trope on this trope to point that he inverts it with him becoming an Evil Sorcerer!
  • How Do I Shot Web?: The other main reason why he isn't completely unstoppable is because he doesn't know how all of the Rinnegan's powers work because of his Nagato's early demise. Tsukiyomi even had to teach him how the Six Paths of Pain and the Rain Tiger at Will jutsu work.
  • Hypocrite: Naruko points out that despite preaching about destiny, he himself has been constantly denying it his entire life - right down to refusing to die when the time has come at the Valley of the End.
  • Implacable Man: Virtually impossible to slow down, let alone defeat.
  • Intangible Man: Until chapter 36.
  • Irony: The man who thinks he's The Hero and The Chosen One acts like a textbook Big Bad Evil Sorcerer.
    • The man who believed that fate and destiny dictates all things in the multiverse has been defying his own fate of dying from the day he fought Hashirama and Mito at the Valley of the End.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: He's the main reason the Madara Trio and the Arashi clan first became enemies in the first place.
  • Mighty Glacier: His rinnegan abilities make him extremely formidable, but slow at the same time.
  • The McCoy: The Trio's most impulsive member.
  • The Necromancer: First by reanimating corpses to act as his Paths. Then he learns Edo Tensei to revive Izanagi and ''five Kages'' to become his Paths.
  • Obliviously Evil: Best shown when he when he was planning to defeat Kazama. He seemed a lot more heroic than Kazama has been lately.
  • Obviously Evil: Even Yahiko didn't trust this version of Madara.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Well, he is called "The Destroyer".
  • Pressure Point: Knows how some of the Hyuuga's Gentle Fist Taijutsu works.
  • Power of the Void: Until chapter 36 again.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He doesn't fit into any clear type but he is one. At times he seems to have the maturity of a twelve year old and every time his Berserk Button is pushed he throws a temper tantrum.
    • His Motive Rant has revealed himself as a Type B. While very intelligent his motivation is basically the same as a child who can't figure out why bad things happen for no good reason.
  • Super Power Lottery: He can use both the Sharingan and Rinnegan at the same time.
    • Magical Eye: You should know what his eyes are.
    • His Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan powers.
      • Guardian Entity: His namesake which takes the form of a big black dread knight. Word of God says this is because he wants to be a symbol of the inevitable.
      • Hellfire: Amaterasu.
      • Mind Rape: Tsukiyomi. It's not as powerful as Tsukuyomi's, though (the character, see above).
    • His Rinnegan powers.
      • Aura Vision: He can see the Shinigami's power inside of Kazama with it.
      • Elemental Powers: All five chakra types, but he's only used a Katon jutsu and Rain Tiger at Will once.
      • Energy Absorption: Preta Path.
      • Gravity Master: His favorite Rinnegan power. His first answer to anything is to Shinra Tensei it.
      • Hive Mind: Only when he gets all Six Paths up and running though.
      • Mind Reading/Your Soul Is Mine: His second most favorite Rinnegan power. He has a nasty habit of stealing souls for information. He's also confident in its ability to steal the Shinigami's power.
      • Power Nullifier: Preta Path.
      • Shape Shifter Weapon: Asura Path. This was mainly used by Wave-verse Sasuke when he was turned into a Path. Also later used by Susanoo to modify his body after he lost Mikaboshi's powers.
      • Summon Magic: Animal Path, although it was originally worthless because multiversal jumping cuts you off from your Summons. Only when he gets all Six Paths running does it become useful again.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: The reason why he's The Fatalist. He believes that if you try to Screw Destiny the multiverse will make you suffer and everyone you know suffer while forcing you to fufill your destiny no matter what you do so you should just do what destiny says so no one will have to suffer.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: As of Chapter 36.

    Amaterasu 

Amaterasu - The Warrior

  • Affably Evil: He is polite and cordial to his enimies, wanting to see them all as Worthy Opponents.
  • Badass Grandpa: Although he acts like he's in his late twenties or early thirties. Amaterasu was the benchmark for strength during the first half of the story, killing the Kyuubi and being clearly stronger than the rest of the cast.
  • Badass Transplant: After spamming Izanagi to kill a Kyuubi he replaces his old Sharingan with his worlds Itachi's Sharingan, who he killed.
  • Handicapped Badass: He was blind at the end of his fight against Zabuza and Jiraiya and still managed to take Zabuza with him.
  • Baddie Flattery: Amaterasu constantly and honestly compliments his opponents valour and determination during his fights.
  • Blood Knight: Amaterasu has turned himself into the Anthropomorphic Personification of this trope to cover up how much he hates himself.
  • Breaking Lecture: First he dishes out one on Fugaku and Mikoto calling them out on their pettiness and how they are just Selfish Evil losers with a serious case of Chronic Backstabbing Disorder instead of people protecting their clan like they claim. It doesn't work...because he's completely right and they're so Selfish Evil that they are incapable of caring about anyone but themselves. He then dishes one out on Shisui explaining to him the Insane Troll Logic that the Uchiha clan runs on and how pathetic it is to be an Uchiha. This one is completely successful turning Shisui into a Boomerang Bigot and making him mastermind the Uchiha Massacre.
  • Chess Motif: The Bishop.
  • Deconstruction: Of being a Blood Knight in general and fighting honorably. Becoming War itself has been a completely empty experience and has left him with nothing of true value. It is also pointed out that if Amaterasu wasn't honorable, he could be practically invincible.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu??: Amaterasu kills the Kyuubi. Yes, you read that right.
  • The Dragon: The most physically-oriented of the Trio, and he seems to not mind giving the other two more authority. Ironically, despite being "War made flesh", he keeps the peace between Tsukuyomi and SusanooHe's also the first one to die.
  • Expy: Ability wise, he's Gilgamesh from Fate/stay night. Mentally, his Social Darwinist idealology is the same as Shishio Makoto, the Big Bad of Rurouni Kenshin.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Amaterasu faces his death with an extreme amount of dignity. He even congragulates the people who killed him.
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Amaterasu" is the name of the Shinto goddess of the sun. In fairness, Warrior!Madara was likely aware of this when he took the name - he and the other two were picking the names of the three Great Gods after whom their most noted techniques were named, so they were likely unconcerned about the gender of the original name carriers.
  • Genius Bruiser: Most obviously, his mind is as sharp as his swords. He was even able to scam extra information out of Amatsu-Mikaboshi, something even Tsukiyomi couldn't accomplish.
  • Graceful Loser: Or, as he puts it: "Congragulations, worthy warriors. You Won."
  • Honour Before Reason: Amaterasu is a villainous version.
  • Hero Killer: The best example of this trope in the story, killing off Kisame, Sakura's Kyuubi, and Zabuza at different points in time. Among others. Tellingly, the other two Madara mostly take to the background for a while after his death.
  • It's All Junk: Amaterasu, on his deathbed, realizes this of all his achievements - no matter how many weapons he has obtained, they don't do him any genuine good and they brought him nothing in the end. He accepts this with quiet dignity.
  • The Juggernaut: Nothing ever stops Amaterasu, not even the Kyuubi. He only slows down when he chooses to slow down. He was only killed because he chose to slow down and fight fair.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Him leaving Fugaku and Mikoto out to dry and at the mercy of Shisui and Danzo after everything they did was well deserved. Especially Mikoto if you can piece together her motives.
  • Lightning Bruiser: To the point where he's The Juggernaut.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • The Kirk: He's probably the sanest and most reasonable member of the Trio, despite mostly being an all-around bastard.
  • Manipulative Bastard: While he doesn't do much manipulating in the present he helped send the Uchiha clan onto their path of self-destruction in his home world by making that his support would let them get away with things they really couldn't.
  • Noble Demon: Amaterasu is a deconstruction of the trope. He has a strict code of honor (and is arguably the nicest of the Madara Trio, which isn't saying much), but he's NOT an Anti-Villain. He gets an effective Alas, Poor Villain scene, though, acknowledging that his accomplishments as a great warrior haven't really brought him anything of lasting worth and congratulating his enemies for defeating him.
  • Remember When You Blew Up a Sun?: Amaterasu will forever be remembered as the man who killed the Kyuubi.
  • The Social Darwinist: He believes heavily in the strong ruling the weak. It ties all his other traits together, but it’s subverted in the end we realizes that his beliefs didn’t really matter.
  • Storm of Blades: One of Amaterasu's techniques is called this. It's based on the Gate of Babylon.

    Izanami 

Izanami/Tobi/Mikoto Uchiha - The Undying

  • Action Girl/Dark Action Girl: Yeah, she's not a Non-Action Big Bad. When she wants to she can kick some serious ass.
  • Adaptational Badass: And not just power-wise. Izanagi really underestimated his teaching skills given how effective, competent, and magnificent this Mikoto can be.
  • Ambiguously Evil: She loves being a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside of an enigma. She seems to be leaning towards 'good' lately, although it's unknown whether she was Good All Along, or a heartwarming case of Love Redeems.
  • Animal Motifs: The preying mantis.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: She was in love with Kushina for a long time, but Kushina was straight and loved Minato. This was the start of Love Hurts for Izanami.
  • All Women Are Lustful: Izanami. Gropes. Kazama's. Ass. But given that it's Izanami it probably doesn't mean anything. It's taken even further when she begins to start flirting with him. Then she starts molesting him.
    • She has shamelessly admitted to being a pervert. Looks like that's not part of her Troll act.
  • Almost Kiss: Loves to invoke this trope.
  • Arch-Enemy: Izanagi.
  • Ascended Extra: Like you WOULD NOT believe.
  • At Least I Admit It: A comedic example with her believing that all woman are as perverted as men, with her being the only one to admit it.
  • Badass Armfold: Usually when making a Badass Boast, she seems to have mimicked her own Madara's Character Tic.
  • Badass Boast: Makes a rather impressive one after dropping her Obfuscating Insanity facade.
    Izanami: Do you really think you can kill me? If you are truly immortal, then I am undying. Nothing short of a god can kill me.
    • She wasn't boasting, that's the really badass part.
  • Bastard Understudy: Izanami was this to her Madara - when he tried to replace her because she's a woman he learned that he had trained her too well.
  • Back from the Dead: She died in a river and Izanagi revived her with an unknown jutsu that made her part ghost.
  • Beautiful All Along: She is described as a Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl with her mask on but is described as a peerless beauty with it off. Although this mostly comes from Kazama's point of view so it might be biased. Chibaku later states that while she is attractive, she's less so than Mei or Konan.
  • Becoming the Mask: While she originally went along with the training to better betray Izanagi, to a certain degree she seems to have come to enjoy the lifestyle of a Femme Fatale, loving all of the vices, pleasures, sex, and trolling that comes with it. This is hinted to be because she hated being a housewife.
  • Berserk Button: Do not threaten or try to hurt her son. Ever. Izanagi found this out the hard way.
  • Bi the Way: The only reason why she was Ambiguously Bi was because it took so long to be confirmed in story to be confirmed. While she flirts with Kazama and has made it her goal in life to make him her personal man-toy, she also flirts with Mei, then was far less ambiguous when she couldn't help but admire Yugito's voluptuous form who after getting her clothes burned off had to wear clothes too small for her, and then there's her high opinion of Kushina. In "Precious Ones" its confirmed, Izanami was in love with Kushina for years.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: She intimidated the Madara into letting her in by threatening them with the Edo Tensei zombie of The Sage of the Six Paths.
    • Non-Action Big Bad: She has noticeably never entered direct combat, instead relying on manipulation, threats, blackmail, coercion, proxies, and killer zombies to get what she wants. This might be justified because her Madara trained her to be a spy and seductress. But given her habit of lying and with holding information, she might be a more powerful direct combatant than she lets on, plus certain people say she's good with a sword... She is confirmed to be very good at fighting, even without her zombies.
  • The Blank: Her White Mask of Doom seems to invoke this.
  • Blatant Lies: "Nami is a good girl" as she puts it. Even if she is a good guy she definitely isn't a 'good girl' given her rather lustful nature.
  • Broken Bird: One of the many, MANY maybes about her. As of Chapter 36, it's been revealed to be true.
  • Brought Down to Normal: She loses her immortality once the Shinigami hits her with an attack.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Izanami is a perverted, trolling, borderline nymphomaniac that is also an extremely skilled schemer, organizer, planner, and fighter that is able to effortlessly outwit or overpower even the most cunning and powerful foes when serious.
  • Butt-Monkey: A dramatic example. While Izanami is at first introduced as a powerful mastermind, as her past and current situation is revealed, it becomes clear she's a sad, bitter woman, who's life has become a trainwreck of failed relationships,broken dreams, unrequited love, jealousy, and self-loathing.
  • Came Back Strong: Izanagi brought her back as an immortal with ghost powers.
  • Casting a Shadow: One of her ghost powers involves shadow manipulation.
  • Combat Medic: Izanami is a medic skilled enough to heal Nagato after using the Gedo Mazou and badass enough of a combatant that she can tangle with a zombie Madara Uchiha.
  • Companion Cube: Her White Mask of Doom seems to be this to a certain degree, she has a strange attachment to it. Even after her identity is revealed she still wears it.
  • The Confidant: She and Kazama are this to each other.
  • Consummate Liar: Oh hell yes. She uses the fact that no one knows the events of her universe for all it's worth.
  • Covert Pervert/Chivalrous Pervert: If her internal monologues are anything to go by Izanami has a healthy appreciation for both the male and female form covertly inspecting everyone before choosing her prey and pouncing as a Chivalrous Pervert as Kazama (happily?) found out.
  • Crazy Homeless People: Sort of; Izanami started out as a possibly crazy lady living in a cave. She's moved up in the world since then.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Just look at all of her Edo Tensei countermeasures.
  • Cursed with Awesome: She's completely immortal and undying, but at the same time, she's completely immortal and undying. The only thing she wants nowadays is a way to cure the curse Izanagi put her under.
  • Dark Is Not Evil Dresses in black, but easily the nicest and most morally incline of them all.
  • Darth Vader Clone: Madara sure have a thing for these, don't they? Okay, well, to recap: She fights with a Flaming Sword similar to a lightsaber, was fatally wounded and was revived in a different form reminiscent of how Anakin was revived as Darth Vader. Dresses in black, wears a mask to hide her identity, and has completely rejected her former identity like Darth Vader has.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: She finds Yugito so attractive that she had to stare at corpses in order to stop thinking about her.
  • The Dog Bites Back: To Izanagi, and it was an Offscreen Moment of Awesome for Izanami. Izanagi deserved every second of it.
  • Enigmatic Minion: She still manages to be this after joining the Big Bad Duumvirate. No one knows what she wants, if she even wants anything at all.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: While not 'evil', Izanami was unable to understand that Kazama didn't want to get into a relationship with her not because he didn't like her, but because he believed that he couldn't be the person to give her the love she deserves.
  • Evil Genius: In a Five-Man Band dynamic.
  • Femme Fatale: Izanami fits every qualification besides wearing a baggy black kimono instead of a more revealing outfit. She even lampshades it.
  • For Happiness: This seems to be how she views sex.
  • Fragile Speedster: She moves around a lot very quickly, and uses swift attacks. Due to her ghost powers, she has little need to worry about defending herself from attacks.
  • The Glomp: Tends to show her affection by caressing, groping, or by hugging someone as tightly as possible while violating their sense of personal space. Her hands are like an iron vice. Resistance Is Futile.
  • Good All Along: Maybe. It's either this or Love Redeems.
  • Good Bad Girl: She acts as Kazama's moral support and is more ethical than him... except when it comes to being sexually active; she's a Jiraiya level pervert, gleefully gropes him, and happily took his virginity.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: She seems to be so skilled that Kazama was described to have de-aged a few years after she was done with him.
  • Graceful Loser: Once it was clear that Kushina and Minato loved each other, though very bitter, Izanami stopped pursuing Kushina and wished them happiness. This is very noticeable given how two other Mikoto decided to help kill Kushina in revenge for not returning their feelings.
  • The Hedonist: An ethical one. Due to her Becoming the Mask and being immortal she states that she constantly seeks new pleasures, mainly those of sexual nature. It's highly implied that she has made a long line of sexual conquests over both men and women with Kazama being her greatest conquest.
  • Heroic Seductress: She is very good at seduction, apparently due to Izanagi's training.
  • I Lied: It's like crack for Izanami. She's lying to AT LEAST two different factions, with at least two lies to each of them.
  • Identical Granddaughter: Her and all of her counterparts are stated to look exactly like Madara's wife, Yumi.
  • Immortality What Izanagi gave her unwillingly.
  • Immortal Procreation Clause: Due to her immortality she can't get pregnant or give birth, it's highly implied that the reason is because she's frozen in time.
  • Incompatible Orientation: She loved her Kushina, but Kushina loved Minato. While she was distraught, she respected Kushina's decision.
  • Indy Ploy/Gambit Speed Chess: In hindsight she's even more of a Magnificent Bitch when you realize that she came up with all of her plans in mere seconds without having a clue about what was going on and still being able to adapt to such an insane scenario while changing her schemes accordingly.
  • Intangible Woman: She can become intangible like the Madara because she's part ghost.
  • Irony: Many people in the Naruto universe seek immortality. Izanami is the only person who has Complete Immortality, and she doesn't want it.
    • She hates Minato, but she fell in love with the version of Naruto that is the most like Minato.
    • She hates her former persona yet is The Confidant to a cynical leader like her more mainstream Alive!Yondaime self.
    • Her more mainstream self is an Insecure Love Interest to her romantic partner, while Izanami's significant other is the Insecure Love Interest to her.
  • It Amused Me: Part of the reason Izanami was lying to the Madara and Kazama. It's like meth to her.
  • The Lancer: Izanami has become Kazama's right-hand woman as the Amekage, acting as his closest confidant and is the only person he trusted besides Konan until the rest of the Arashi came back. She also fits the traditional Lancer role by acting as Kazama's most vocal critic. Kazama also seems to be her Lancer as well helping her with her own issues.
  • Large Ham: Whenever she's in her Tobi persona she loves to ham it up. She also gets rather hammy when genuinely upset or angry in a Drama Queen like fashion.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Kazama. She is the only person who truly understands him after all of his Character Development and is the main reason why he hasn't gone evil.
  • Longing Look: Gives one to Kazama whenever he isn't looking at her.
  • Loss of Identity: Izanami seems to have no idea who she really is. She can be a Manipulative Bitch Troll one second, a calm, caring confidant the next, an angry spiteful woman that hates the world, a lustful Femme Fatale, a sad Woobie that hates her immortality and wants to find a loving man, a competent Number Two Lancer, and a Large Ham Drama Queen. The only things that seem real about her is her love for her son, her love for Kazama, and a scathing hatred for her former Yamato Nadeshiko self. She shares this with Kazama.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: well, Kazama finds her lovable, and Izanami is the one who loves sex.
  • Love Hurts: Despite her lustful nature, Izanami's been burned by love all her life and her romantic relationships have been a long string of failures from her failed first marriage, her Does This Remind You of Anything? undertones with Izanagi, to her unrequited love for Kushina.
  • Love Redeems: She's fallen in love with Kazama and it has seemingly brought her down a brighter road.
  • Magical Eye:The Sharingan. It appears that she hasn't gotten past the three-tomoe stage (yet).
  • Mama Bear: Izanagi made his last mistake when he set his eyes on her son.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She fits this better than Guile Heroine. She prefers to emotionally manipulate people, seduce men, and invokes Obfuscating Stupidity to make people underestimate her.
  • A Man Is Always Eager: Inverted as a Rare Female Example with Izanami, she loves sex. And was the person who convinced Kazama to take their relationship to the next level and took his virginity.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: While Izanami is as sexy as hell and knows it when it comes to being in an actual romantic relationship with Kazama she finds herself acting as the major masculine driving force in contrast to the insecure Kazama and is the one wearing the pants and tends to be the one who makes the final verdict, so to say.
  • Master Swordswoman: Best shown when she cut through a Susanoo.
  • Missing Mom: To Itachi. Who probably doesn't even remember her given that she was forced to run when he was an infant.
  • Morality Chain: She and Kazama are this to each other. Both her and Kazama are both a step away from a Face–Heel Turn and the only thing stopping them from doing so is the love they have for the other.
  • The Necromancer: Izanami is the biggest user of this trope - Edo Tensei is practically her signature jutsu. She hasn't used it as much since the fight with Susanoo.
  • Not So Different: Although she believes that she has broken free of Izanagi's influence, he has still greatly corrupted her, best shown with her liberal Edo Tensei use.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Especially when she's around Kazama. She will never turn down a chance to touch or grope him. She is either being a Troll or she's so broken inside that it's the only way she can show affection.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: In her first appearance.
  • Obliviously Evil: While not 'evil', Izanami is completely oblivious to the fact that Izanagi was far more successful in remaking her into Tobi than she realizes.
  • Official Couple: With Kazama.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction when Fire is revealed to be an alternate Kushina.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Izamani claims she wants to be one. But since Izanami said it... Well take that claim with a grain of salt. It was a lie after all, it seems.
  • Playing with Fire: As a Uchiha, she has a plethora of Fire Jutsu at her disposal.
  • The Power of Hate: Uses this to power up her Katon Jutsu when remembering her time with Izanagi.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Izanami is shamelessly perverted. She regularly sneaks into Kazama's room with her Intangible Woman powers and is implied to use her Sharingan to properly admire people that she likes to see. If you catch my drift.
  • Properly Paranoid: She was so afraid of Izanagi that she believed that someone would revive him with Edo Tensei even though she had all of his DNA so she created lots of Edo Tensei counter measures. Irrationally paranoid? Yes. Did it save everyone's lives? Hell yes.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Wears a more practical outfit that incorporates a lot of purple in it underneath her black kimono.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin <—> Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Zigzags between these two appearances depending on who's describing her. Most people see her as the latter, finding her creepy and ghost-like. While Kazama and Kushina see her as the former. Although Kushina hasn't seen her in years and Kazama's opinion is somewhat biased so her true appearance is unknown.
  • Reincarnation: She is the reincarnation of her world's Indra Ootsutsuki,the Sage's Elder son skipping over Madara to shed his bad karma.
  • Red Herring: She is not a Gender Flip of the Tobi we know; she is actually an alternate, immortal Mikoto Uchiha.
  • Reforged into a Minion: Her backstory with her Madara remaking her into Tobi. He was only halfway successful.
  • Riches to Rags: She was born into the Uchiha clan with everything she ever wanted baring the person she loved, after a Noodle Incident she became a crazy lady that lived in a cave with a Bastard Boyfriend version of Madara. Fun times.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Kazama. Kazama copes with his issues by acting stoic and driven. While Izanami likes to cover up her pain by being as bombastic and trolly as she can, there are certain signs that she is just a natural Large Ham so it might not be all an act.
  • Second Love: Can be seen as this to Kazama depending on how you view his old crush for Sakura.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: This is most likely why she's trying to romance Kazama. While he is a rather hardcore Anti-Hero, he is also the first person to be truly kind to her in years.
  • "Shut Up" Kiss: Does this on Kazama to pull him out of a pity party.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: She has a one-sided rivalry with Mei.
  • Skirt over Slacks: Wears a more practical purple and black combat outfit underneath her black kimono.
  • The Smart Girl: Thanks to her Madara's training she knows a lot of things like canon Tobi does.
  • Soul Power: Several of her powers come from being part-ghost.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: How she usually greets Kazama.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: She is quickly becoming this to Yugito and is loving every second of it.
  • Summon Magic: Her Preying Mantis Summons, who all seem to be Straw Feminists.
  • Sweater Girl: For about half a chapter.
  • Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Described like one. She has deathly pale skin, is extremely thin, has long black hair, and seems rather ghost like. And then she's revealed to be part ghost and is actually similar to the original Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl — the onryo, the ghost of a woman who was wronged by a man.
  • Teleport Spam: She abuses her teleporting abilities for all that they're worth.
  • Technicolor Fire: Her Katon Jutsu can turn blue when she uses the Power Of Hate.
  • That Woman Is Dead: Thanks to her Madara's Training from Hell, abuse, and a lot of other events, everything except her love for her son and possibly her friendship with Kushina from her former persona has died; she even admits this, feeling nothing when she meets a more mainstream counterpart.
  • A Threesome Is Hot: Izanami is a firm believer of this trope, always suggesting threesomes to both men and women. Kazama finds this mortifying.
  • Troll: Being one is like pot to her. She loves screwing with people, from joining the Madara to scope out their abilities, to groping Kazama's ass for fun.
    • She and Mei have recently formed a relationship based around Troll-to-Troll Combat.
  • Unreliable Narrator: SO. GOD. DAMN. MUCH. It's impossible to seperate the truth from her lies. It's like cocaine to her.
  • The Un-Reveal: Izanami takes off her White Mask of Doom in front of Kazama...but Kazama has no idea who she is, so neither do the readers.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: She is on the side of good, but her moral compass is only slightly stronger than Kazama's and tends to go out the window whenever Kazama or Itachi might be in danger.
  • Walking Spoiler: To the point that her true identity has been revealed and we still don't know everything about her.
  • White Mask of Doom: Her version of the Tobi mask is this.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: She wants to get rid of her immortality because she's afraid it will eventually drive her insane, make her complete her Face–Heel Turn, and become the next Madara.
  • Yandere: Played for Drama and deconstructed. She was one to Kushina who acts as her personal Uchiha obsession. She worships her and treats her like she's God's Gift to Earth endlessly obsessing over her, and this is multiversal, a lot of Mikoto actually have a possessive-obsessive relationship with Kushina. One helped assassinate her because she got married and another killed her husband because he helped assassinate her, and then a third one sent her Kushina to her death for turning her down. This leads to a deconstruction, being a yandere destroyed Izanami's life, left her Kushina as an embittered cynic, and one of the Kushinas her counterparts ruined out of spite returned as a monster to haunt Izanami, in the end Izanami has some serious problems. Izanami only gets the relationship she wants after stopping being a yandere.
  • You Owe Me: Tells Kazama that she wants 'compensation' after she gives him one of her Anti-Edo Tensei talismans. Three guesses on what she wants and the first two don't count. note 

    Izanagi 

Izanagi - The Creator

  • Arch-Enemy: Izanami.
  • Asshole Victim: His first death was cruel and unusual, but you can't deny that it was extremely satisfying to imagine him suffer like that.
  • Badass Armfold: When making a Badass Boast. His apprentice has copied his Character Tic.
  • Badass Boast: Makes one upon his revival and swearing revenge on Izanami.
    Madara/Izanagi: Izanami is a fitting name, for she is the goddess of the dead, and reborn again. I? I am Izanagi, the creator, who will send her back into the hell that spawned her.
  • Badass Teacher: As twisted as he was you can't deny his results, though in a contrast to Tsukiyomi, he never realized this or the progress his student had made.
  • Bastard Boyfriend: He acts like one basically physically and emotionally abusing Izanami while she keeps him alive. Her resembling his dead wife also opens a whole new can of worms about their relationship.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Susanoo.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While powerful and dangerous after his revival Izanagi has no clue of the cosmic powers in play. Acting as Susanoo's pawn, all he manages to gain is Hashirama's hatred, and to crank this Up to Eleven he was never Indra's reincarnation meaning all of his plans were in vain.
  • Break the Haughty: Played With. He has canon-Madara's ego but being killed by Izanami taught him to just Colony Drop his opponents rather than show off, but at the same time, he got way too sure of himself and underestimated Izanami a second time.
  • Came Back Strong: Luckily not as strong as his canon self, but thanks to him being Crazy-Prepared when someone uses Edo Tensei on him he is revived in his younger form before the Valley of the End instead of his pruny old form.
  • Colony Drop: When the Sage of the Six Paths has him cornered he decides to use his Gravity Master powers to dislodge the freaking moon from orbit in an attempt to stall the Sage.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Izanami killed him by poisoning his meals, then got a giant preying mantis to eat his heart while he was still alive, then cut his corpse into tiny pieces. The Domestic Abuser totally deserved it.
  • Curse Cut Short: By a meteorite.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Him coming Back from the Dead could remind a person of a abusive significant other coming back to ruin their exes life. Thankfully, Izanami shut him down.
  • Eyescream: Izanami burnt his eyes out. They sadly grew back thanks to Edo Tensei.
  • Domestic Abuser: His relationship with Izanami could remind one of a abusive husband, boyfriend, or father, given what he did to her.
  • Faux Affably Evil: During his conversation with Susanoo he came off as a rational man, then we see what he did to Izanami...
  • Gravity Master: By the virtue of becoming the Deva Path.
  • Immortality Seeker: In his backstory he was seeking immortality. Izanami was the closest thing he had to a success.
  • Irony: The man who thinks he's the ultimate badass lost because he underestimated his skills as a Badass Teacher.
    • He named himself "The Creator" but could not comprehend what he had created in the end.
  • Jerkass: Susanoo secretly dislikes him for his attitude and sexism. But his jerkassery really comes to light when you saw how he treated Izanami, it could remind one of a Domestic Abuser.
  • Kick the Dog: His entire relationship with Izanami is this trope. Every single thing he ever fucking did to her.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Unlike the other Madara he has no idea of the cosmic powers that are in play.
  • Magical Eye: The Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan.
  • Meaningful Rename: While at first glance this Madara renaming himself Izanagi is just him being a egocentric dick (although in hindsight it probably contributed to the rename) Digging a little deeper in Shinto mythology you will learn that Izanagi was the one who sealed his wife, Izanami, away after she died and went insane. And this Izanagi plans to seal away his former Bastard Understudy Izanami who has a rather similar backstory to the real Izanami.
  • The Necromancer: He's the one who taught Izanami Edo Tensei.
  • No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: Justified: He never made a counter measure against Izanami's immortality because he wanted it for himself and didn't want it to have any weaknesses.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Brought back by Susanoo with Edo Tensei as his Deva Path.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He almost destroyed the Earth by trying to drop the moon on it in a moment of pettiness.
  • Pet the Dog: Yes, really, once long, long ago, he spared Hanzo's life as a child in a moment of kindness...or possibly arrogance.
  • Playing with Fire His fireball jutsu of course.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He was extremely misogynistic. It bit him in the ass.
  • Post Humous Character: He was Izanami's Evil Mentor who has recently died of old age. Izanami's lying through her teeth on the "old age" part.
  • Revenge: First order of business after being brought Back from the Dead? Find Izanami and subject her to a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He didn't last long, but his creation/student, Izanami, has an extremely important role.
  • Straw Misogynist: Rather obvious given that he lost to two women.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Out of all of the Madara he comes off as the most normal, which is rather disturbing considering that his favorite hobby was treating Izanami like shit.
  • Too Dumb to Live: For some reason he thought that treating the woman that was in charge of keeping him alive like shit was a good idea.
  • The Unchosen One: An evil version. He created his own Moon's Eye Plan, but this Izanagi isn't Indra's reincarnation, so he can't develop a Rinnegan. This caused him to rely on the Ame-Sage's anti-Mikaboshi plans through Nagato who did develop a Rinnegan naturally in this world. To add insult to injury his apprentice, Izanami, is Indra's new incarnation and neither knows.
  • Underestimating Badassery: On multiple levels. He underestimated Konan, he underestimated Izanami, and he underestimated his own teaching skills due to him not being able to comprehend that his apprentice could surpass him in any way.
  • The Worf Effect: The Sage of Six Paths didn't even have to try to kick his and Hashirama's asses at the same time.
  • You Monster!: Hashirama says this to him after he dislodges the moon from orbit in an attempt to stop the Sage of Six Paths, fully aware that he might destroy the planet doing so.

    Team Kage 

Hashirama Senju, the Sandaime Kazekage, Mu, the Sandaime Raikage, and the Nidaime Mizukage Revived by Edo Tensei

  • And Zoidberg: The Kazekage is treated as such due to some seriously dick moves.
  • Anti-Villain: All of them except for the Kazekage are Type IV's. The Kazekage's more of a Type II or III.
  • Badass Crew: Although they don't want to be one.
  • Be as Unhelpful as Possible: All of them have sworn to be as useless as possible to Susanoo.
  • Break the Cutie: Hashirama hasn't had it easy after his revival. Starting with him being forced to realize how far Madara has gone, followed by Kazama giving him a brutal "The Reason You Suck" Speech telling him how the Will of Fire ruined his life and that the Hidden Village System he created for peace just made warfare more brutal and better organized, now all he needs to learn is that his society was built on Mind Rape and he'll be completely broken.
  • Came Back Strong: Immortal zombies with infinite chakra plus Sharingan and Rinnegan enhancements? These guys are complete nightmares!
  • Dream Team: They are the strongest fighting force of all time even though they don't want to be.
  • Explaining Your Powers to the Enemy: Justified, since they're trying to lose.
  • Four-Star Badass: All of them are former leaders of their respective villages, and the most powerful members of their time.
  • Healing Factor/From a Single Cell: What would you expect from magic zombies?
  • Hero Killer: All of them are introduced as this, and the Raikage and Kazekage fully graduate with them killing Kakashi Sasori, and Omoikane respectively.
  • Irony: The Sandaime Kazekage who hated human puppetry was revived as the puppet-like Asura Path.
  • The Juggernaut: All of them. But a special mention has to go to the Raikage.
  • Magical Eye: All of them have a Sharingan and a Rinnegan giving them an unwanted power boost.
  • The Mentor: After being freed from Susanoo's control all of them but the Kazekage plan to teach the Arashi clan a few tricks before moving on.
  • One-Man Army: Each of them by themselves are this trope. All five of them together is just plain overkill.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: They are all Edo Tensei zombies.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Once they got to work, maps needed to be redrawn.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: All of them except the Kazekage are extremely reasonable and helpful. Though the Raikage takes the cake throwing away his considerable pride while trying to lose.
  • Revenge Before Reason: The Kazekage has let his grudge against Sasori completely consume him.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Them being assembled is basically the personification of Susanoo's adherence to this trope.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: The Raikage invokes this on himself because he has to fight Yugito.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Susanoo gave them all a Sharingan and Rinnegan plus a Path power that covers their weaknesses. They all hate this.
  • Up to Eleven: Pretty much the entire point of this teams existence is to make Pain and Tobi's Path's look laughably pathetic in comparison.
  • The Worf Effect: Hashirama and Izanagi were completely (but justifiably) worfed and ripped apart by the Sage of Six Paths.
