Fanfic / A Father's Wrath

Go To

An AU Naruto story written on by Saiyan Warrior 200 and is currently completed and can be read here. A Father's Wrath has a surprising change to it as instead of Minato, Orochimaru is Naruto's father instead, and is forced to witness Kyuubi being sealed inside him. This causes Orochimaru, (who is at best, an Anti-Hero type IV, and at worst, an Anti-Villain in this) to swear revenge against Konoha for doing so. Sarutobi casts an Genjutsu on the newborn Naruto to hide his true appearance. Orochimaru joins Akatsuki and leaves after failing to defeat Itachi and creates the Hidden Sound Village in order to continue his plans to try and get his son. This is a more humane Orochimaru-centric story as he shows qualities that he could've had, had he not gone down the path he went.

A sequel Son of The Serpent can be found here.

Tropes in A Father's Wrath include:

  • A Fate Worse Than Death: Hidan's downfall After being defeated and his hands cut off, He is tossed into an empty void by Orochimaru who opened up the Rashomon Gate and he can do nothing but float off into the distance and curse him.
  • And Then What?: Pein asks this to Muta as he is near death at Sekigahara what he would've done afterwards if he had somehow managed to kill Naruto. Muta responds by saying he doesn't care what he does after that, so long as he can kill him.
  • Ascended Extra: In Canon Jashin and The Jashinists were given a mention as a religion that worshipped pain and destruction and we only saw Hidan as a member. Here, they are The Big Bad.
  • Armor Is Useless: Averted, when The war with the Jashinists start Naruto and the others start wearing armor to protect themselves in battle and The Snow Forces cover their bodies with a layer of Ice to deflect attacks and so their archers don't have to worry about hitting them.
  • Bad Boss: Keiji Sosano is one of these as during the Chunin Exams he threatens to kill the other Akatsuki agents if they fail. When he becomes the Tsuchikage he gets even worse as its revealed he willingly sent thousands of his own men and followers to their deaths so Naruto and the others wouldn't be able to figure out what he was really planning. He even kills the one person who had feelings for him and uses her heart to power up his ultimate weapon
  • Blood Brothers: Naruto and Haku become this, swearing an oath in a Peach Garden similar to Romance of the Three Kingdoms
  • Blood Knight: Lu Xiaong of the Jashinists and Iwagakure is one as he doesn't care about serving Jashin or the difference between good and evil, he only cares about fighting and prove his strength.
    • Deconstructed however, in that for his desire for battle and opponents, when he and his army is sent as part of a pincer attack for a battle and apparently Orochimaru has died he turns back and leaves seeing no reason to fight as there's no one worth fighting. It's implied if he had been there, The Jashinists would've won the battle.
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do to Orochimaru is fine, but threaten his kid and he WILL END YOU.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: When Naruto's opponent in The Chunin Exams uses a Jutsu that transforms him into an humanoid scorpion, he gains one of these.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Many learn not to hurt Naruto when his sister Anko's around. When she confronts Orochimaru in the Forest of Death instead of being in fear she threatens to kill him if he doesn't tell her where Naruto is.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Hidan has attacked Konoha with other followers of Jashin while Leaf and Sound are trying to put a stop to The Main Jashin force in Iwagakure. The group manages to return and fight them to a standstill it's when Suna and The New Kazekage Gaara appear and announce themselves as their allies that the Jashinists flee
  • Bittersweet Ending: Hurray! The Jashinists are defeated and peace is held once again throughout the land, many have died but are never forgotten and Konoha, Suna, and Oto are allies.

  • Breaking Speech: Keiji Sosano gives one to Naruto telling him that he is doomed to a life of isolation and hatred as a Jinchuurki, he nearly believes him until he realizes You Are Not Alone.
  • Can't Catch Up: Sasuke fears he is becoming this after Naruto has become more powerful and stronger than him. In the last chapter He asks Orochimaru to train him so he can become stronger after The Fourth Shinobi War and manage to finally be able to defeat Itachi.

Dosu Kinuta we see is saving money for a surgery to restore his face and becomes a Strategist in his own right and friends with Shikamaru.
  • Defector from Decadence: The Snow ruler changes sides in one of the final battles as he was more of a Well-Intentioned Extremist who sought to end the squabbling of the land by unifying it and joined with the Jashinists. Upon seeing what they have planned after they destroy a defenseless village. He switches sides, and helps win the battle that turned the war in their favor.
  • Demoted to Extra: This happens in a way to Akatsuki as Pein refuses to get involved in the war despite Hidan's betrayal and uses the organization to spy on what is going on with the War. This however, enables them to capture Yugito and extract the Two Tailed Cat. And during the final battle he himself appears and wipes out an entire army numbering over five thousand.

The closer it is to one the stronger it glows taking the form of fire on it. After being stabbed once by it Kyuubi can be heard growling remembering the wound that had been given to him.
  • Enemy Mine: Orochimaru is reluctant to agree to an alliance with Tsunade and Konoha during the Fourth Shinobi War but is forced to do so as it'd be the only shot they'd have defeating The Jashinists. Gradually at the end, He, Her, and Jiraiya are at respectable terms.
