Fanfic / Witchblade Sakura

Go To

Following the battle with Sasori, Haruno Sakura is informed by Chiyo of an Ancient Artifact.

A powerful, sentient weapon, immersed with supernatural properties, that only can be wielded by a worthy female warrior... this weapon is called the Witchblade. It is a masculine aspect forged to unite and balance with only a worthy female wielder.

It is a weapon born from the primordial aspects of light (Angelus) and darkness (Darkness). Bestowed to Sakura, who struggles in her first trials, finds herself immersed and driven to defeat the evil that plagues her world. The weapon bonds and accepts Sakura as his worthy host.

However, the Witchblade is a wicked power that consumes one's humanity. This start completely diverges following the Sasuke Reunion arc and goes into its own direction (albeit some manga canon is retained). The enemies Sakura must face include the Akatsuki, Cloneblades, and the forthcoming Darkness.

Witchblade Sakura is a Dark!Sakura fanfic and a crossover between Naruto and Witchblade. The author, Kanius, utilizes elements from the Comicbook, Anime, and Live Action media. The story is currently on indefinite hiatus due to the author's waning interest on the Naruto franchise.

On top of that, the latest chapters have some amusing omakes based on the Witchblade. There are also cameos from the previous Witchblade wielders (from the comics and anime).

Fanart based on Witchblade Sakura can be found here and here.

In 2015, Witchblade Sakura made a guest appearance in Chapter 16 of a Guilty Crown Mega Crossover called Shinnen New Year.

The story comprises the following tropes

  • Blood Lust:
    • In the early chapters, this becomes an issue Sakura must endure to fully tame the Witchblade's lust for violence. Sakura very much demonstrates this when licking her blade, her fingers, and lips.
    • Tayuya faces a similar situation when wielding a Cloneblade. She developed a double persona as the madness consumed her, driving her to kill aimlessly. The other kunoichi (Kabuto's experiments, who replicates a piece of the Witchblade to create Cloneblades) also endure this fate (except for three).
  • Crossover:
    • With the other Top Cow series, the Darkness and there is mention of Lara Croft. Sara Pezzini, the most well known wielder, is featured in cameo scenes whilst conversing with Sakura mentally. Likewise, Danielle Baphiste and the anime wielder Masane Amaha make cameos.
    • In Chapter 32, nearly the whole chapter is dedicated to Sakura meeting her wielder predecessors. Sara, Danielle, Masane, and even Chiyo (a younger, hotter one during her time as a wielder) encourage Sakura to overcome her burdens and continue the fight on. Hell, she even meets the first wielder — a hot cavewoman named Una!
  • Evil Knockoff: The Cloneblades were mass produced by Kabuto (using a piece of the Witchblade). Tayuya, Karin, two twin sisters who are cousins of Sakon/Ukon, Sasame, and Isaribi comprised of the Cloneblade Five (Six counting both twins), chief antagonists of an arc.
  • Fanservice: Lots of it. Witchblade!Sakura and the Cloneblade!Kunoichi wear practically nothing but revealing armor! And these half-nude, empowered young women won't hesitate to beat the living crap outta each other! Good grief!
