Dan Inuzuka (Inuzuka Dan, 犬塚ダン) is an immensely powerful Shinobi whose pure strength lead to him Co-finding and protecting his village. Because of it mixing with his charisma, Dan became prime candidate as a kage. Son to Kiba Inuzuka and the current Inuzuka Head, Konoha branded him as its child. He spent every waking minute attempting to surpass his father and bring absolute honor to his clan's name. He had a clear awareness of his village's expectations of him. As Kiba's son, incredibly large shoes stood before him. Also, his village's own Will burned strong within his stomach and heart. But darkness surrounded his fire. After his defeat, the world lived in absolute fear and panic. People of coursed looked to their savior for hope. But still, Villages existed with doubtful hearts. Power struggles became rampant. Soon, rebel and civil unrest started to emerge in various lands. Power usurps became frequent as well as Coup D'etat's. Konoha, for its rich history, became a source of police force. Soon he found himself on various missions to help his neighboring countries, alongside his closest friend. From childhood, they spoke of creating a new land and village that would live like The Night's Stillness. Calm, peaceful and quiet. During a specific mission where he and Kazuma found a vast uninhabited land, Dan and Konmei decided it was perfect for realizing their dream. Dan proved himself as nothing less than a charismatic hero. He fought on days on end to weeks, protecting his home. Soon, Dan earned his title as First Yakikage (初代夜気影, Shodai Yakikage). Alongside his trusted companion, Konmei Dan helped further establish his village with open hands while repairing any harmful damage. However, a darkness expanded outside his new home. One that often collided with his own perspective a light. And like all darkness, it was one he could not permanently extinguish. Still, Dan remains a powerful influence in his village, both previous and current, and his name has spread across borders as a beast, a demon in war. One to never cross.

Dan's rivalry with Kazuma Senju was a theme within and outside Konoha, and it extended into Yakigakure and Arashigakure's creation. One is a celebrated hero whose valor in battle is widely known while another is a warrior who uses his energy to command others. Although they both have similar goals, their viewpoints and ideals are conflicting. Constantly, every decision is an attack of the shadow or light. And as of yet, neither have gained an upper hand in this eternal dance. Dan, who wishes to keep Yakigakure rich in culture by holding its borders strength while establishing a friendly relationship with other village's, has support from Shinobi with thick connections to the previous generation as well as Shinobi and people who wish to find refuge in a new home. Meanwhile, his adversary wishes to conquer other lands and expand Yakigakure's greatness far and wide. His support is from those who will gain economically. And with their support, he is able to accomplish a majority of his wishes. Dan is aware of Kazuma's power and openly admits that defeating him is impossible. He claims Kazuma as the only man that Dan truly fears. Not in terms of sheer power, No. Dan fears Kazuma's mixture that comprises of a lack of mercy that mixes with an extreme amount of ambition, charm, and charisma. This battle goes as far back as their Genin days.

A descendant of Yatsufusa and great grandchild of Inuzuka Shino Moritaka (犬塚 信乃 戍孝,Inuzuka Shino Moritaka), Dan is a member of the Eight Households. A high ranking noble set within the Inuzuka clan. Even Konohagakure shinobi acknowledge the Eight Household's as high nobility. Members of these eight houses often lack knowledge of one another until it is time for an Inuzuka Shino descendant to become head of their family. To be an Eight Household member is an incredible boost in both power and respect Each member, a direct descendant of The Inu Tribes greatest warriors. As a great grandchild to Yatsufusa, Dan possesses immense innate potential. He is also involved in high spiritual activities and familiar issues between the former eight brothers.

In a world where bloodlines are a huge factor of power, Dan is a man that earned his power through absolute hard work. Harsh training sessions and limit breaking morphed him into a warrior of demons. Dan's infamous feats occurred during Konoha's short war against Iwagakure, who had just lost its beloved Tsuchikage. In a fit of power hunger, the new Tsuchikage sent squads of Shinobi to Konoha in attempt of capturing long lost secrets. Dan, who tricked his sensei into a false trail, entered a battle that lasted for a week before he killed Iwagakure's final invader. Tales of this battle birthed his title as the Demon of the Silver Moon (銀月の鬼,Gingetsu no oni). After Dan awakened and released his sword, he became an avid practitioner soon master of his clan's ancient style. Soon becoming the famed and feared Inugami Mochi (犬神餅, Inugami Mochi; Literally Meaning: "He who has a Dog God"). A title that lead to his presence in battle being a signal of retreat. Shinobi also referred to him as Dan of The Dogs (犬のダン,Inu no Dan). A side effect of his father's mingling with Naruto's cloak gifted Dan a unique trait. One that allows him to literally smell the Kyubi and any other Fox based creature within radius. Displaying this trait gifted him his name of Fox Sniffer (狐スニファー, Kitsune sunifā; Literally Meaning: "He Who Smells Foxes"). He describes the smell as one that a shady creature would have. As a gentle Kage who lives as his rivals Light, Shinobi praise him through a single name; Komainu (狛犬・胡麻犬,Komainu). Dan's immense chakra intensity and amount has lead to him being called Konohagakure's One Tailed Wolf Demon (一尾狼悪魔,Ichinō ōkamiwaruma). After his displays of power, his most trusted ally and spiritual guide, Princess Fuse referred to him as Inuzuka Shino Moritaka (犬塚 信乃 戍孝,Inuzuka Shino Moritaka). Once Dan transformed into his hellish hound of white fur, Shinobi praised him as Shiro (白,Shiro). During an extensive mission in which Konohagakure attempted to overthrow Muzai, Dan and his allies successfully earned their title of Daiyōkai (大妖怪, Daiyōkai;"Lit Meaning Great demon"). Konohagaure wished to aide Kirigakure for decades. However, Fuyuki's might proved overwhelming. It was after they received word of his sudden disappearance, that Konohagakure made its move. Two teams, six man squad sent under one goal. Seize Kirigakure. And they almost succeeded. Until they found themselves before him. A man not much older than themselves. Standing as a God stands before his people. He challenged them, easily defeating each. It was then from being bored, yet honored by their respected strengths, Muzai christened them as Daiyōkai. Their title spread far and wide. The man who overthrew Fuyuki, to survive an encounter; Dan's respect and influence skyrocketed. His name spread like wildfire across lands. Kage's and Daimyou's alike kept from angering him. And battle revolved around his immediate disposal. In a way, becoming a Daiyōkai earned him a Grand General status. Shinobi from all over acknowledging him as one of the Six Demon Warlords (六魔戦神, Rokuma Senjin). A man who marches with an immense army within himself.

Appearance

134791 forgetmynameforever sesshomaru-the-kid

Dan is a light-skinned man with long graceful white hair that flows like a river of moonlight down his back. Never a strand to cross, one can run their fingers through, flawlessly. In his childhood, Dan represented an elegance within feral. A wolf that stood in moonlight. He wore a set similar to his current clothing. A white kimono with sakura tree crest upon his collar and arm. Dan kept a sack for his shinobi tools hidden from sight. His nails were sharp and beastly, alongside his natural canines. Dan kept his hair in a bang formation so it covered his eyes slightly. As with Inuzuka, Dan had his face painted with purple paint. Even having a crescent moon tattooed upon his forehead. Dan's silver and white based appearance represents his position as Yakikage. He is the moon that shines at Nightfall, watching all it covers.

Dan displaying his clan's markings that cover his entire body.

Dan's body is covered in tribal tattoos. Mostly from his days as Lord of the Inuzuka, he branded himself with Purple marks as a display of his position. One that few could surpass.

Personality

Dan is a Kage similar to his forefathers. But he is of course, colored with multiple shades. As a child, Dan Inuzuka was surprisingly strict and stern. Son of Kiba Inuzuka and an unknown woman, Dan's Grandmother often told him how Kiba tried his hardest to bring his clan honor, and how proud she was of him. Dan instilled this belief into himself and vowed to bring nothing but respect and absolute love to the Inuzuka clan. [1] A clan overlooked for far to long. He was a dedicated kid who criticized those that lived a lazy life. No time for games, only train and become stronger. And alongside his loyal puppies who followed his every command, Dan lived each and every day with a single goal. But Dan still had a childhood. He received a love that only pets could give. Though this love, his heart softened. As he watched his pets worked day and night to please him, he began to realize that making others happy should never cost another person's happiness. Although he kept his vow to bring honor, Dan started, at a young age, to experience love and joy for others. Because of the Fourth War recently ending, he witnessed its aftermath. Destruction, decay, lost, and heartbreak. He saw people cry and empty eyes of his father's friends who parents and friends died for a silly cause. This burdened his heart and his life no longer became fixated on bringing honor to the Inuzuka. Dan questioned pain. He started to contemplate war. Soon he became a child with a new dream. He wanted to make everyone happy, at his own and only his own expense. This lead to him meeting his rival and closest human friend; Kazuma Senju.

Dan (Right) and Konmei in his transformed state (Left)

Dan always had an undying love for his Ninken. And of his closest, who he refers to as brother, they hold a stronger bond that surpasses any other Ninken or human alike. So much so he almost died on numerous occasions to protect him from harm. Especially going farther after Senken's death at Okaminaga Date's hand. Afterwards, he placed Konmei's life on a higher priority than his. Konmei is the source of his power and his true family. After witnessing him work day and night to please him, he promised to be just as loyal. As man is a dog's best friend as well. Their love and admiration for one another is clearly shown during battles and missions. Times of perfect collaboration, one could believe they communicate telepathically. His tremendous love for his brother is a trait passed between generations within Konohagakure, stating back to its founding fathers. According to his parents, it was his brother Senken that taught Dan his true power of love and understanding. As well as create a place for his Will of Fire to burn within. From his incredible burden of love and understanding, a sense of immense honor and pride is birthed. He believes himself obligated to his village and will endure all hatred if it means an era of Peace. It is for this he overdoes himself in hopes of taking away potential pain from those who surround him. He exhibits this trait most during battles. He has taken life-threatening damage for his village and teammates safety. Once tricking his own brothers so he would embark on a deadly mission by himself.

However, Dan has never forgiven himself for Senken's death. It is a burden that haunts him day and night. He constantly fears for Konmei's life, so much so, Dan has almost sacrificed his life for Konmei's safety..

Dan has shown to be loving towards those who are important to him. He swore on his life to protect Chosho and even die for her smile. He promised Fusehime to free her spirit so she could spend eternity by Yatsufusa's side...

He is very forgiving. Despite hating Nurarihyon Inuzuka for murdering his father, he forgave him. Understanding that fate drove him to do it. That Nura only understood his families twisted ideologies...

TEENAGE DAN

During his years as a young adult, Dan walked a dark path with a light heart, constantly referring to it as his torch meant to guide himself and others to happiness. But his torch brought a heavy darkness within. In form of his bestial transformations, Dan grew to love battle. He constantly walks a thin line between man and beast, and will willingly cross it. He embraces his bestial nature in numerous ways. He gained immeasurable infamy after a battle in which he literally devoured an entire enemy squad after transforming into a wolf. The darker side of Dan is one who has very little to no problem eating another human being or indulging himself in a feast of humans alongside his brothers. As a beast he enjoys it truly. It is a forbidden pleasure. In battle, Dan welcomes his sadistic, bloodthirsty urge. He plays with his food with a merciless grin. Mercy is a word he no longer understands after his transformation. For most of his missions, he got along just well with his longtime rival, and helped him clear all who stood in his way.This shade of darkness had been birthed from his experimentation with higher level Inuzuka techniques that involved transforming into actual demonic beast. In this form, his mind twisted itself and warped into that which he became; A Monster. And without lack of control, he began to enjoy his hunting frenzies. Missions and battles were nothing less than treats. Humans, dog snacks to him. Even his Ninken partook in his cannibalistic taboo's. Paradoxically, his bestial instincts remained weakened and at times, nonexistent in times that required his village safety. And through fierce training, Dan managed to master his beast form, subduing his inner feral demon. Still, Dan can feel it in times of his transformations. Especially transformations that combine his bodies with his brothers. And so, he is in a constant struggle between Man and Beast. A thin line he often tells of walking. Said line is seen in little ticks he has. He barks and growls at people, bites and claws and sometimes rolls on his back.

Sesshoumaru.600.977832

Dan becomes mature.

Dan inherited his father's short-temper as well as his impulsiveness. As seen with his defeats against Kazuma Senju, one who has demonstrated exceptional skills as a master strategist, Dan often attacked before thinking. He prematurely embraced his bestial instincts and went on the offensive without gathering enough information. Although excellent for teamwork, it made him a hard Shinobi to deal with. Someone who would act before thinking, he used his heart to guide his impulses. But it all changed before Dan evolved into a Hokage. It occurred during a mission where he witnessed his brothers suffer heavy damages because of a impulsive call. It followed with haunting thoughts of his friend slowly but surely being consumed by the abyss, and Dan losing sight of him and his loved ones. These thoughts plagued his mind. Even in his bestial forms, a small light remained flickering, rapidly changing, becoming a face he swore to protect. Keeping his creature-like heart from wandering astray. This awakened a force deep within his stomach. An immense purge of immaturity and childish wishing. Instead, he started to understand things with a mature eye. No longer did his father's quick temper and impulsiveness plague him. He awaited and struck. Dan adopted his friends style of battle and made it his own. He even spent days on end mastering his bestial transformations. Now, as a beast, Dan retains his human instincts and intelligence. And although he will succumb to it occasionally, it is often of a conscious effort rather than a forced takeover. He became a missing link between beast and human, a brilliant combination, a careful mixture. As before he proved absolutely dangerous, now Dan became the perfect ally alongside his brothers and teammates. Dan mastered his bestial instincts and utilized them in ways that kept from interfering with his true personality.

He developed a nonchalant, laid back yet serious attitude. A perspective that kept himself and his inner beast calmed. Situations that are dire importance are met with extreme patience and careful thinking. Being in a rivalry with a Senju has taught him an understanding of the importance of strategics and tactical planning. No longer will Dan rush into battle, and waste energy or resources; Unless his loved ones and/or village's safety depended on it. This is seen during a strange attack on his village from a Jinchuuriki of Kirigakure's Sanbi. Where he calmly assessed his situation and reacted accordingly, instead of blindly rushing into battle for a victory. Dan gained an understanding that physical victory matters little. A battle is necessary but one should always hold their focus on the entire war. Winning a war is key to peace, but it depends on how one wins.

Blank stare 1

Dan is a man of blanks stares. His mind often wonders on how to improve his situation, and ways to rescue his friend from everlasting darkness

It is shown that Dan has always despised his clan's method of choosing mates[2]. Believing love to be free, he's walked his clan's path. It all changed when he came across a young Feudal Lord, whose loving nature shined a unique light onto his life. Dan, who'd grown to be merciless towards those who harm his loved one's, feared that one day, he'd become nothing more than a beast. But she showed him his humanity. That it was human nature to protect their loved one's despite horrid actions performed doing so. In a way, he saw himself in her. Her love, determination and wish to protect her people at all cost mirrored Dan's own ambition. They were like Emperor and Empress. Hand and hand. Two pieces meant for one another. Causing him to form an absolute love of Sōsui Okasu. And after dinner, their love had been revealed and consummated. Dan also revealed that he always hated destiny. Wanting to make his own path. During that time of night air, Dan found himself. But had to live it short, as they both lived in lands quite the distance away. Dan was appeared a man of times. However, Dan later revealed in (Future RP), that he never stopped loving Sōsui Okasu. Going as far as forming a spiritual connection. Feeling her pain and sorry unknowingly. Dan also exhibited deep regret for he could not leave with her. Despising how cruel fate turned out to be. To him, she had been who he wanted to create the perfect world with. Later telling Konmei, he almost left Konohagakure that night. If not for his family and own dreams.

In that very same story, Dan referred to Sōsui Okasu as a weakness. Something he kept throughout his entire life. On countless occasions, she's appeared to be a sore spot for him. Afterwards, Genjutsu master's have tormented him with her death. He has shown insecurity towards their separation. Blaming himself for being unable to truly win Sōsui over. He blames himself for any suffering she endures.

It is said that Sōsui Okasu inspired Dan to create Yakigakure. And for that, she is considered a founding member to him...

After their relationship ended, Dan and Sōsui Okasu underwent awkward meetings. Dan's love for her constantly battled his loyalty to Yakigakure. And soon, his newest relationship. Lord Inuzuka often describe Sōsui Okasu as a flower that only bloomed once in his lifetime. Yet bloomed like no other he'd ever encountered. Dan proves overprotective of her still. Ready to leave his village at first sign of trouble in the Land of Focus. He has implanted multiple spies that report to him of her safety. Dan showed a bit of an overprotective behavior. Willing to sacrifice his life for her survival. Dan also demonstrated love for one who he not considered family for the first time. Allowing those around Dan to see his humanity further. However, Dan remains secretive about his emotion.

Although their behavior say's otherwise, Dan holds no ill-will towards Sosui. Believing himself to be at fault. He understands fully that her village and own loved one's had to come before him. As Dan had done the same. In essence, they walked similar paths that were parallel from each other. Dan could never leave his loved one's behind.

To read Dan emotionally is nearly impossible...

From his childhood till his years as a Kage, Dan retained multiple idiosyncrasies. His most prominent is a need to bite and chew his nails as well as scratch at things. Similar to a cat, he has destroyed plenty furniture.....Dan has a catchphrase; "All Right!" which he speaks in an Engrish dialect in the dubbed and Daijōbu (大丈夫,Daijōbu) in the sub.. Through different syntax's and questions, he will adjust his phrase to fit the situation. Dan

Background

Birth

After Madara Uchiha fell to Konohagakure's Rookie Team, they returned to unprecedented fame. Absolute heroes. A generation that would rewrite history, and avoid the flaws of before. Among them was Kiba Inuzuka. An overlooked member of the Inuzuka Clan. Yet, Kiba proved himself tremendously in war. Upon his return, Konohagakure underwent drastic changes. Foremost, those who participated in defeated Obito received impressive promotions. Kiba and Akumaru became Jōnin. They embarked on higher ranked missions, travelling throughout the world, helping Naruto Uzumaki heal it. Alongside his friends, they wished for better times. Although it only proved to be wishful thinking. So much lost, pain, and fear had spread like wildfire. Usurps emerged. Rebellions destroyed nations. Super powers fell. It became chaos. Yet these shinobi retained help. It was through Kiba's vibrant heroic deeds that his destiny illuminated itself. An Inuzuka princess, one kept hidden from Konohagakure's main affairs caught an eye. Soon, she requested his hand in marriage. Not only from aesthetic attraction, but actual blood. Kiba Inuzuka belonged to a long line of Inugai-mochi. Although unknown. Meanwhile, her ancestor had been Inuzuka Shino Maritaka himself. The first Inuzuka who domesticated his clan. Transforming a tribe into their current domesticated family. Together, their clan underwent a power boost as well. Their history started to spread. Other clan's acknowledged them further. And upon their consummation, special items warmed. An omen.

Dan's birth went as usual. However, they were shocked by Dan's apparent bestial features. An ancient sign of a powerful heart. Their joy went unmatched. His friends heard endless gloating. Naruto noted that Dan had Kiba's intense gaze. But would not stop sneezing around him. A side-effect, he'd soon discover for himself. Kiba's friends gathered around in prayer. Wishing Kiba's child a happy life. During his infant days, the ancient weapons past down warrior lines became active. Seemingly glowing around him.

Simultaneously, Akumaru's mate, Kiba's wife's ninken, had gave birth to a set of twins. Both instantly falling in love with Dan. All three slept in a single crib. Earning their title as Kiba's children. It was not rare to see Dan's mother nursing alongside her hound. Talking to one another about their children. Dan cried when separated from Konmei and Senken. During his first days of life, Dan wouldn't stop crying until he was near those two. Same for both. A spiritual connection already formed. Kiba realized that Dan would become inseparable from his hounds.

Growing Up

1164888285 1164888285 ladysesshoumaru

Dan was a much more stern child.

Dan had a different childhood. His mother instilled into him an idea of destiny. Where she made him believe that Dan's life had already been set. Being descendant of the clan's strongest warriors and founding father's meant familiar obligation. He believed himself to be responsible for the Inuzuka Pack's fame. He had to continue their power. Inherited from his own father. Dan believed nothing else. Until his mother had a short conversation with him....

Movies and Appearances

Abilities

Perhaps the strongest Inuzuka to emerge from Konoha, Dan Inuzuka is a name is synonymous with fear, beast, and monstrous. A name Inuzuka of younger generations will surely study. It isn't just his own physical prowess, which includes his Ninken, boosting him into legendary status, it is also his innovative thought process, ability to progress alongside his determination and heart. He is often referred to as Hashirama's will reborn. Inuzuka are naturally dog based warriors; However, Dan's immense imagination and passion developed stronger techniques of a greater diversity. He evolved from a house dog into the wolf that stalks in moonlight. But his devotion and love remained his true source of strength. The fact Dan was able to single handily defend his village from an army is testament to his power.

After the fourth Shinobi war, Kirigakure had existed in a horrid state. It was after one God overthrew another did Konohagakure attempt to seize Kirigakure. They sent six men, two three man cells, to Kirigakure. Easily, this miniature militia managed to invade Kirigakure. Dispatching their forces, and displaying bestial powers and fearful might that could make Kirigakure's former warriors faint. However, upon Muzai's appearance, as a God appears before man, they were quickly shown the err of their ways. Only sparing them from boredom The Blood Bound God branded each as a Daiyōkai (大妖怪, Daiyōkai; Lit Meaning: "Great demon"). An ironic title indeed. But one that elevated their status drastically. Soon, their names spread like wildfire. Few dared stare upon them. Mentioning their appearance on a battlefield often stopped wars. It gave Konohagakure an influence it last long before. Dan's moniker proved a testament to his power. To acquire such a classification at a young age rippled across lands. Tales spread far and wide of his triumph. Countless stories of battle by a boy and his dog. Dan continued to grow. Perfecting his craft, eventually claiming his right as Daiyōkai. The only way to stop a Daiyōkai is for another one to intervene, A popular saying among villages. And he stayed true to those words. During his battle against Orochimaru, the great white snake spoke of the newly established Daiyōkai. Saying their title surpassed his own in terms of power and potential. Becoming a Daiyōkai granted Dan incredible fame. Shinobi feared approaching Yakigakure with blades in hand. They feared his name. Trembled before him. Dan's presence stopped trivial battles. Petty village leaders proved cowards before him. But his gentle aura calmed their shivering legs. Dan's strength granted him the respect of multiple Kage as well. As with Dogs, Dan is recognized as one of the more kinder Daiyōkai. A bleeding heart filled to its brim with loyalty. In truth, a Daiyōkai resembles a feudal warlord. They are seen as great Generals. Who can command men, and make others fight through them. Dan is one who can convince through love and dedication.

This source of strength was brought about from the immense amount of love and admiration he received both from Konoha's and Yakigakure's citizens. Yakigakure places its absolute trust into his hand, and believe with all of their heart, that he will protect them. Yakigakure watched him fight spirit-breaking battles before returning with horrid wounds that no man should endure. And through all his pain and suffering, they saw him smile before doing it once more. All in order to protect those he hold dear. And because of his connection to Kiba Inuzuka, Konoha citizens once believed him a true possessor of the Will of Fire. Much like previous holders within Konoha, Yakigakure citizens follow and support his every decision. Firmly, they stand behind their kage with fist held high. Through this admiration, Dan earned large amounts of political support from people who watch his village grow slowly. It is rare for others to disagree with an action or motive. And in situations where situations seem dire, they close their eyes and trust in his power and strength. Very few refuse his words. And even less object. As with any kage, a powerful connection has been formed. It also serves as incredible protection against his rival whose strength is birthed from his support from those powerful economically, criminally and politically. As long as Yakigakure gains excessive strength, Kazuma is unable of attacking him directly. Also, in situations that would cause for an all out war or civil unrest, Dan's words are enough to calm his people. His political strength reaches throughout The Land of Fire. Excluding criminals, he holds an open arm to towns that litter far and wide. He offers support and gains it in return.

Another connection Dan forged is through clan alliances. As former head of the Inuzuka himself, Dan possessed an equal power to his long-time rival, Kazuma Senju. Who became head of the Senju Clan not long before himself. For a period of time, a nonviolent battle between families emerged. Whose son would rise higher and achieve greater feats. And with Dan's coronation in Yakigakure, Kazuma also took multiple clans into Arashigakure. But Dan had done so as well. Both had an open hand towards specific clan members. So far, the Aburame and Hyuga clan heads support Dan in loving memory of his father. And so, they are welcomed publicly with open hands. But Kazuma still possesses something Dan lacks. The ability to rule with an iron fist. However, Dan covers this weakness with a powerful treaty between himself and other surrounding villages. he uses this treaty to continuously bring in support. This includes thorough sweeps and strict intolerance laws. Even as an attack against Kazuma's power structure, Yakigakure civilians see it as him taking care of his people. With Crime rates drastically decreasing, his villagers remain safer than ever before. Eliminating two birds with one stone. But he is aware that Arashigakure's true power cannot be destroyed.

A gaze strong enough to stop a war.

But under his kindness, there is a blood thirst for battle that churns within Dan. He enjoys fighting, he enjoys battle, and, keeping up with his theme, Dan appreciates a wonderful hunt. Those who stand in his way are faced with a wolf. A gigantic demon hound that will devour all in his path. His prowess within battle resembles that of a wild animal. And at times, it generates enough fear to get what he wishes. If someone disobeys his command and threatens his home, Dan unleashes a form of killing intent that resembles a wolf on the prowl. He has kept various powerhouses from acting unruly or outside their control through his sheer presence. This frightening presence has gifted him a power through association and rumors. Enemies absolutely fear him, and thus retreat when word of his involvement is spoken. Dan has became a key figure in Yakigakure's safety. He earned his name through many battles that resulted in zero casualties thanks to his heroic actions.

In terms of his own prowess, Dan is often considered one of the strongest Kage's to date. His ability to push his clan techniques to new frontiers and accomplish things without a birth right or some sort of blessed lineage proves his overall potential. He is able to take a technique and personalize it for his own use. During his squabble with Orochimaru, the latter noted that Dan's chakra and fighting skill rivals that of the Third, even gloating that his prowess could surpass Hiruzen Sarutobi himself.[3] It was for this that Orochimaru sought after Dan's body.

Dan has a unique ability to smell the Kyubi when within a certain radius, even if sealed within someone. A unique yet indescribably foul stench that plagues his nose. It is comedic when they come into contact with each other.

Intelligence

Chakra Control and Intensity

Mt7SyX9iwz3HwzWHe4CFSrA

The symbol which represents Dan's chakra. The perfect sync between man and beast.

As an Inuzuka, whose abilities gravitated around control, Dan required exceptional levels of chakra control. His clans hiden prepared his body tremendously. He proved able to master the concept at an incredibly young age. Dan accomplished feats faster than Kiba's former classmate, Sakura did in her younger day. Which, he noted on multiple occasions. First, Kiba taught Dan chakra control as a method of maneuverability; water and surface walking. Continuous exorcises that made it second nature. He was shocked to find out that he could perform techniques of higher caliber than someone his age. And with intense chakra, his techniques became extremely deadly. His clones were perfect, and transformation impeccable. Dan used his techniques daily, going on hunts with his brother. All three training by using their chakra to enhance their physical abilities. He also had Dan placed under a series of Genjutsu with subtle differences. Small hints that would require a masterful eye. And with his naturally enhanced senses, Dan managed to see through each with an unforeseen ease.

Dan and Konmei spent two years on the Hill of Dogs alongside his great ancestor. Due to the hills unique flow of time, each year outside equaled seven inside. Ultimately equaling fourteen years of training. However, Yatsufuse coated Dan in a special saliva that kept his body from aging as fast. During their training, Dan managed to awaken his bestial spirit and obtain his Heart of the Wild Beast which allowed him to control his spiritual energy. Through it, his techniques evolved while he acquired a plethora of dog based jutsu. All his jutsu reached sage levels, able to perform transformations that could not be defeated through damage. His Inuzuka techniques causing massive area damage as well. Dan's basic physical attributes far surpassed wild fighters before him. His senses increased as well. Within his body, man and beast had synced. Creating a ferocious enhancement in chakra density and volume. Those who could see his networked noticed a spiritual dog, circling around his physical energy. While his physical energy followed this bestial creature. Through his consuming, Dan's chakra reserves have also increased massively. He has years upon years of consumed enemies that increased his own reserves.

Dan mastered chakra control at an incredibly young age. And so, it became his greatest weapon. It boosted his fighting style and clan techniques to incredible levels. It also made him a frightening beast on all forms of surfaces. Whether land or water, Dan fought with a ferocity. Dan's mother revealed his direct lineage to Inuzuka Shino and his brothers, revealing that although, like all other Inuzuka, his inner beast slumbered, its dormant power was exceptionally powerful. Allowing Dan to naturally draw from it and enhance his own skills. A physical representation of this gift was his appearance. Dan possessed beast like ears and eyes. His senses already enhanced without chakra control. And nails just as sharp. His chakra control furthered his clan techniques exponentially and lead to him becoming an incredible warrior who never lost his target. Genjutsu of the highest frontier are required to trick him as all five senses grant him a key to reality. His control of energy lead to him developing an unimaginable level of strength. Which, when combined with supreme speed and tracking skills, transformed him into a demon that one could not avoid. His clan's hiden revolved heavily around the Transformation Technique. A technique that allows one to physically alter their appearance as well as take on their transformations physical properties. However, even his clan had a weakness; attacks would dispel his transformations. But Dan took note of how their previous Hokage, Tsunade, remained young. Tsunade had such a mastery over the transformation technique that she could take incredible damage, cast chakra taxing attacks and remain in her transformed state, only returning when her energy had been completely drained. Through her method, which he secretly studied vigorously, he improved his own Inuzuka Clan techniques with a seal of sorts, thus creating transformation techniques that would only dispel if he ran out of chakra or willed it himself.

Dan is naturally gifted with extensive mastery over chakra manipulation. His body can handle casting and controlling multiple techniques at once. Calling, creating and manipulating chakra from any part of his person body with immense precision. Allowing him to cast technique at full power without wasting chakra or timing. Dan's ability over chakra manipulation allowed him to form two distinct seals. The first one creating a back up reservoir of chakra, and the second seal creating an ocean of Senjutsu Chakra for Dan to instantly activate.

Sesshomaruwhip.jpg.w300h144

Dan releasing his own blast.

Dan's control furthers his clan's physical enhancing abilities. It is said he is capable of matching a tailed beast in pure power, and with his feral style, Dan is often confused as a Tailed Beast himself. During a mission, Konohagakure had Dan pretend to be Kurama's host in order to confuse a potential attacker. Another infamous usage of Dan's chakra control was created during a battle against a Samurai where he witnessed their usage of chakra manipulation. By flowing his energy through his body, and gathering it at his nails, Dan is able to increase his nails strength to levels that pierced through fortified steel. Their armor became paper in his presence. And swords useless in clashes. If Dan wishes, he can gather his energy and release claw shaped blast of pure chakra at his opponents. Its size varies, depending on his purpose. But his blast are able to cleanly cut through large structures as well as cause concussive damage. Dan's control allows his thrust to pierce cleanly through bodies and most defenses. Dan created an energized form of Fang Passing Fang by spinning at incredible speeds. While spinning, his nails release a stream of chakra. At such a speed, an energy whirlwind is created and flies towards his targets with damages able to cause massive craters.

As previously mentioned, Dan's chakra matches a Tailed Beast in terms of intensity and amount. Sensors refer to him as Konohagakure's One Tailed Dog. A demon capable of producing a shroud of energy that resembles that of a wolf. This shroud heavily increases his physical capabilities while forming an extra form of defense.

Immeasurable Presence

Killing Intent

Dan's immense presence forming a hellhound comprised purely of killing intent and concentrated will power.

Dan's power and blood thirst has enhanced his naturally dangerous Killing Intent and Willpower to extreme proportions. It mixed together, evolving into a physical manifestation of his Presence. His presence is an extension of himself that projects outward. As with other men that share his caliber, Dan's presence appears as a specific form. So much so, his own presence is visible to even those who cannot sense chakra as one's presence is simply that. Dan's Presence forms a beast similar to a hellish hound comprised solely of killing intent. A demonic dog with a split mouth similar to Inusaki. It's eyes completely white with hatred. Darkness forever shifting among its body, like thousands of spirits dancing among one another. Biting and howling. Dan's presence is incredibly large, enveloping Lord Inuzuka completely. Once being seen from every point within Konohagakure. Dan's presence is known to react to his anger and blood thirst. Usually, he has great control, being able to simply disappear presence wise. But, in times that Dan is irritated, his presence grows rowdy. Dan can also manually control his presence, manipulating it at his will. Moving it about, channeling it and suppressing it. The larger one's presence, the easier it is to be spotted. Which is its downfall. So Dan is unable to hide if he is angered, unless he controls his negative emotions. Some could say this presence is Dan's will personified. Given a physical form and projected from his body. And such can be used offensively as well as defensively. Dan's presence has a unqiue trait that it creates a dark subconscious inside one's mind. It gives life to his surrounding opponents instinct. Allowing it to talk to them inside their mind. This instinctive voice tells them to surrender, to give up. To escape with their life. Their fight or flight system is automatically activated. Causing them to either flee or attack recklessly.

  • Dan's bark leaving an enemies army unconscious miles away.
  • Dan's first step upon a Bandit ship left its crew in a coma.

Dan is able to release concentrated waves of his presence outwards. Travelling through the air for lengths on end. These pure blast are invisible to both the naked eye and those who can sense chakra as they are neither physical or spiritual energy. However, people feel its force within them. Spawning from inside their minds. It lacks a concussive touch. Insteadtravelling through opponents. Those all around Dan hear a massive bark. Rivaling a ear shattering explosion. Yet outside, those who are not targeted hear nothing. Dan's bark knocks those he wishes unconscious, a deep coma or a peaceful slumber. Dan describes it as something more than a Genjutsu. A simple shut down of his enemies body. Leaving them unable to touch reality. Dan has attained such control that he can specifying it. Targeting a single individual surrounded by an army. Dan can also release it wildly to effect all who stand around him in a specific radius. Whether hiding or within buildings. He describes it as his will being shot out from his being. A will for his enemies to fall. Dan's extensive pressure can knock a surrounding force around him without eye contact. Or a specific target. Such as when he knocked out a bandit's brother in the middle of their hideout. Without Dan being in his vicinity nor even seeing him.

Such as when he knocked out a bandit's brother in the middle of their hideout. Without Dan being in his vicinity nor even seeing him. Dan's bark traverses through solid objects, buildings and other physical constructs, continuing outward for as long as Dan wishes. Meaning he can target those who are hiding or not within his immediate area. Those with stronger wills are able to resist. Causing Dan to be impressed by those who are left standing after gazing upon his presence. But even kage level shinobi are left panting and sweating upon hearing his bark. Dan's bark is usual against all living creatures. Allowing him to tame dangerous beast. Tailed Beast have been known to react after withstanding his bark.

Dan's presence is incredibly heavy and distorting. With each step, his surrounding enemies began to lose their orientation. Breathing becomes difficult to those who cannot control their own chakra. Many lose face before him. Abandoning courage and fleeing when they gaze upon Dan's presence's pure white eyes. Thoughts that Dan's hellish hounds will send them to Naraka plague their mind. For this, Dan often warns his weaker allies to run if he is going to release his power. It also serves as a weakness as Dan is unable to release his strength inside of his home.

After activating sage mode, Dan's presence becomes extremely powerful. Through gaining control over surrounding natural energy, his presence mixes with it. It is for this reason that opponents begin to see thousands of wild hounds running about. Each hound is actually Dan's presence, hence their connected senses. As with all who hold powerful presence's Dan's surroundings become apart of him in this mode.

The Sacred Link of Dogs

Before defecting from Konohagakure, Dan witnessed his teammate utilize the Yamanaka style techniques. Seals which allowed them to manipulate nearby enemies both mentally and physically. Similar to the commands of the Nara. Impressed, Dan mimicked it. Creating one of his first Sub-hiden techniques. A combination between Inuzuka and Yamanaka. It involves manipulating canines mentally. Creating a spiritual and mental link with surrounding beast for various purposes. It is from this thought that Chuutai came into existence. After forming a specific seal, Dan perceives the world through the senses of any surrounding or targeted Canidae. From dogs to wolves, foxes, coyotes and other canines. Whether domesticated, house broken or wild, they become open to Dan's connection. Their senses are his. He experiences everything they do. Allowing Lord Inuzuka to exist in multiple places at once, as far as he wishes.

The extent to which he creates a sensory link has yet to be limited. Dan has reached beyond his country lines and linked his senses through over a hundred different Canidae species. Sharing all their senses, Dan existed in various locations at once. And when used around him, he gains a wider sensory field, making it impossible to truly attack him without being seen. Dan is able to scour entire countries while remaining stationary. Unlike the Yamanaka's parent technique, Dan is able to link his senses without sending his consciousness into other creatures. Meaning Dan is free to move and act as normal. Also, the distance their transmission can remain is absolutely monstrous. Dan has kept a strong link between his dog senses and himself for miles on end. Never losing their power. With increased mastery, the number of senses he can link at once is nigh limitless. From a single house dog to a thousand Canidae pack that covered an entire country. Although he forces a link between their senses, Dan does not control their actions. To overcome this weakness, Dan often uses it on his own hounds who obey his every will. However, Lord Inuzuka pushed this technique further.

Based off a powerful Konhagakure technique, Dan domesticated his own version. Instead of transferring his whole consciousness into a body, Dan implants a sliver of his own mind into theirs. Causing them to obey his will as an instinctual

Ninjutsu

Earth Release

Earth Release chakra

Dan subconsciously releasing surges of earth release chakra was enough to nearly sink a town in a small fit of rage.

Dan is an extreme master of Earth Release. Not only a master alongside Dan's allies, his Dog theme and attributes heavily influences his techniques. Dan prefers to manipulate his surroundings, often creating large pits, death traps, and complex formations that both hinder and threaten all before him. He also possessed a unique mastery over transmuting earth into mud. Doing so creates two potential goals. Dan is capable of transforming the enemies surroundings into mud which steals away their balance, swamps that sink them hundreds of feet below, creating an eternal prison or weapon. Dan's second method involves shape transformation. Dan can create Mud based constructs for offensive, defensive and supplementary use. From perfectly reforming clones to actual defenses alongside offensive measures. Manipulating earth and mud, Dan adds special variety to his technique. Dan combines his earth release techniques alongside his dog usage. Unlike other summoning techniques, Dan can summon his dogs underground, and allow them to literally travel through as if swimming in water. Granting him the element of surprise. Through immense chakra control, Dan is able to exponentially increase his claws strength and cutting power by coursing earthly chakra through each. A technique that rips steel blades apart with finesse. For this technique, his nails are rumored to be the sharpest blades man has crafted, going against Orochimaru's Kusanagi.

Another mixture involves shape transformation. Dan can form earthen dogs for a variety of purposes. These dogs, being composed of earth, are capable of reforming upon damage. Continuously attacking, hunting down Dan's target. They possess incredible strength, crushing bones and tearing flesh. Their size varies, depending on Dan's purpose or target. He can make them small enough to stalk the night, or large enough to tackle summoned enemies. Their numbers also vary. Going from single beast to large packs. Creating a pack large enough to consume enemy armies. Even forming a large dog from earth that follows his every command. Lord Inuzuka has also created other powerful constructs including fist, walls and other items form his imagination. Each possessing nigh invulnerability due to continuously streaming his energy into it.

The sheer size of his earth release depends on his purpose. As said before, Dan often practices restraint, knowing very well that he could influence a countries geography. Battle becomes hectic as Dan manipulates his enemies movements by altering their surroundings. A sheer testament to his power are the Three God Walls that surround Yakigakure.

Dan is one of few earth release masters capable of transforming their chakra easily into earth. Meaning he is able to access catastrophic techniques without requiring an earthen source. However, Dan also possesses great power over earth and mud. Dan has cast techniques that completely erased villages. With enough force to devastate a nations army. When Lord Inuzuka performs these large scale abilities, Dan often manipulate its force and overall power. Being able to completely alter his terrain. Transform a forest into a valley, create massive earthquake or destroy a large water source completely. Once claiming that to release his true strength over earth would be like stepping on an ant. And so, Dan often restrains himself in battle. As a manipulator of earth, Dan gains a natural control over the battlefield.

Dan mastered the usage of transmuting earth and earthen substances into different phases. His most known are it's liquid and solid state. Lord Inuzuka can increase his solid earthen constructs to levels that rival diamonds. Allowing basic earth release techniques to possess enough power to completely crush enemies. Or he can liquify it for various purposes.

Mokomoko-sama

Main article: Mokomoko-sama Mokomoko-sama (モコモコ様, lit. Lord Fluff-Fluff) Is an ancient family heirloom passed through Inuzuka Clan's noblemen. When Kiba married into the Inuzuka Clan head family, his son came into its possession. But not through simple generation to generation gifting. As an actual living creature, Lord Fluff-Fluff chooses its wielder. And when in contact with Dan, Mokomoko-sama destined him as its owner. Mokomoko-sama is the fur on Dan's shoulder. It is said to have been made after a great Wolf Youkai's slaughtering and it's fur harvested alongside its eyes and fang. Residue energy brought it to life for various usage, and mastering it was a sign of true Inu heritage. Mokomoko can extended to great lengths and be used to whip, constrict and fling his opponents or carry Dan through the air. However, because it is a part of his body, well connected spiritually, the mokomoko-sama is capable of bleeding and is highly sensitive to pain, to the point that injuring it can render Dan temporarily immobilized.

Dan can order Lord Fluff-Fluff to act on its accord. This includes giving it to allies to watch over a person. Mokomoko-sama is also able to carry people away as well. Although it prefers to stay on his shoulder, it is often used in unique ways that might call for it to disconnect from Dan. However, it still serves as a powerful weak spot for Dan, no matter its distance. This is seen through chakra sensory as there is a chakra connection between Mokomoko-sama and Dan. Through Chakra control, Dan is able to harden Mokomoko-sama, allowing it to defend against metallic weapons. Even weapons that involve flowing chakra are deflected through his unholy scarf.

When used for flight, Mokomoko-sama extends to a wider length, resembling that of a wavering cloud beneath him. Using this method allows him to bring along others. He can also command Mokomoko-sama to take others away by flight while he is within battle, an action he does when situations are dire.

After mastering his Sage Mode variant, Dan created a technique as a method of overcoming Sage Mode's major weakness. Once in Sage Mode, the user will easily drain out their Natural Energy since Sage Mode require's one remains still to continue gathering Natural Energy. Dan can use Shadow Clones to gather Senjutsu but even still, doing so proves a threat. During his time on the Hill of Dogs, he realized how Mokomoko-sama and himself had become connected. This realization brought him to his famed, Sage Art: Canis Technique. During his Hunting Stance, Mokomoko-sama will attach to Dan's lower back side, resembling a tail. While attach, Dan's tail continuously absorbs natural energy. Allowing Dan to remain in Sage Mode for extended periods of time.

Tsuyunoinochi

Main article: Tsuyunoinochi

Iy sesshomaru166-1

Tsuyunoinochi sealed form.

Tsuyunoinochi (露の命,Tsuyunoinochi; "Literally Meaning; life as evanescent as the dew ") is an ancient sword belonging to Dan's ancestor who passed down his sacred blood. It was often attributed as a treasure of Konohagakure alongside other sacred weapons. Similar to Mokomoko-sama, and his Tamashī no Nenju, Dan's forefather crafted Tsuyunoinochi from a Dog Demon's body, utilizing it's fang and fur for its composition. But its true power came from its soul. By sealing its Inugami form into the blade, its fang became a sword of immense spiritual power. A level that has allowed it to be compared to the Shinigami Mask of the Uzumaki Clan. In its sealed form, Tsuyunoinochi shivers in presence of powerful unholy intention. Dan feels when powerful energies cross boundaries or intend something horrible. It also alerts him when his closest connections; Kazuma, and Konmei, are in danger. Tsuyunoinochi exist in two states; sealed and unsealed. Sealed, Tsuyunoinochi resembles a normal katana with a crimson and golden sheath. It's guard circular with a unique wolf design. He is able to telepathically communicate with Tsuyunoinochi, the Inugami which possesses his blade. When using his abilities, Tsuyunoinochi prefers to speak rather than appear physically.

ReleasE

Tsuyunoinochi's source of power stems from what lies inside. It is a sword cursed to contain Dan's Inugami, a Dog God, that is capable of utilizing powerful black magic. And by holding said sword, Dan is able to command them as if their magic was his. Tsuyunoinochi powers are widely unknown, as Dan admits that he is still figuring it out for himself. He suspects that he has accessed and mastered twenty percent of his Inugami's power. These spells of dark magic are bounded to Dan himself. Activating during times of spiritual, emotional or mental trouble. As Dan continued training and perfecting his weapon, he learned that his blade reacts to his command. Each command is followed by his Inugami's name. Due to Dan's lack of perfected mastery, there are some commands that are ignored. This is shown when Dan calls out his command and his sword remains normal. But a successful command invokes a different spell. His first command is Heel Tsuyunoinochi (,). Heel is perhaps Dan's most basic, yet important command. By yelling Heel, Dan calls Tsuyunoinochi to his side. In this state, Tsuyunoinochi is unable to be seen or sensed by all who lack spiritual awareness. Heel increases Tsuyunoinochi's spells as it literally calls him from his seal. Without heel, Dan can only use Tsuyunoinochi's spells at a partial mastery. Causing them to be significantly weaker. Certain powers of Tsuyunoinochi are cast-able without a command. For example, its power of restoring the life of recently deceased can be done on will. However, certain conditions require him to use the Heel command. Fresh corpses can be without it. But passing hours increase it's level of requirement. Tsuyunoinochi also requires a relatively-intact body to work completely. Tsuyunoinochi does not heal or restore lost body parts. Meaning any damage sustained at time of death is continued. Restoring the dead, He is unable to restore dead whose bodies lack the essential organs to sustain life. Also ones soul must remain either on earth or in the next realm. His Inugami is capable of combating a Shinigami for possession of one's soul. This only occurs if a Shinigami summoner is nearby. The amount of people Dan is able to revive at once has yet to show a true limit, once reviving his entire squad. As a sword of immense spiritual power, Tsuyunoinochi's energy have mixed with Dan's own senses. He's developed a Supernatural sense of smell and hearing. His nose can pick up on energies not of this realm. Smelling a soul within his presence. He can also pick up foul scents. The fouler the soul, the more concentrated it is. He can also hear whispers of deceased spirits if he concentrates. But lacks the ability to truly communicate or even see deceased spirits. Dan uses his supernaturally enhanced sense of smell and hearing cleverly. He can smell if a person's body is without a soul, gaining him sense of if his allies are dead or not. This mixture syncs perfectly with Tsuyunoinochi's mastery over dark arts. A dog's command calls his Inugami behind him. Becoming visible to his target and some spiritually aware people who stand around him. Tsuyunoinochi's darker purposes curses those it kills into serving eternity as a , awaiting for their masters call. Dan absorbs these dogs to power up further. A master of Tsuyunoinochi is said to be able to cut the Shinigami's body, stopping his deadly seal in its process. Tsuyunoinochi has a sense of when one summons the Shinigami and will often draw his user to it. As a dog and his mail man, Tsuyunoinochi chases the Shinigami. Tsuyunoinochi can release a dog shaped blast that returns undead or ghouls back to their world. However, Dan has little knowledge on activating it, using it only once before. Another powerful command is one Dan rarely uses as he recently achieved it. It is activated by Fetch Tsuyunoinochi. Fetch sends an Inudama into a person's body. Allowing him to literally possess them. Under his influence, they appear to be normal. However, darker thoughts plague their bodies. This is also accompanied with dog-like symptons. Barking, chasing and an irresistible urge to chase their backside....This command is countered by Release which dispels his Inugami possession. In situations where Tsuyunoinochi flies out of control, Dan's Lie Down command calms his blade. Although in occurrences of extremely powerful spiritual beings, Tsuyunoinochi has ignored Dan's call. In cases where Tsuyunoinochi is taken, Dan's command Come Tsuyunoinochi, causes his sword to fly back into his possession. In its sealed form, Dan is able to freely access Getsuga Tenshō.

Dan unleashes his volley of destructive bladed portals.

  • Getsuga Tenshō (月牙天衝, Moon Fang Heaven-Piercer): Getsuga Tenshō is nothing more than Heavenly Dog Whistle channeled through a sword. Effectively combining Space-time ninjutsu and Kenjutsu. Dan's Getsuga Tenshō and Mangetsu are achieved using a single principle. The tip of Tsuyunoinochi serves as the focal point that is responsible for opening a rift in the space-time continuum upon swinging. This creates a dimensional void, or a pathway directly into Tiangou which is then shot towards his target(s). Tsuyunoinochi's attack is nothing more than two forms of a blasted portal. Anything occupying the space it touches, as long as they are within this dimension, is absorbed into Tiangou's stomach before leaving a massive trail of emptiness. As of yet, Dan can only freely access its incomplete blast; Known as, Getsuga Tenshō (月牙天衝, Moon Fang Heaven-Piercer). Getsuga Tenshō can resemble Mangetsu, as in its fired through an orb shape as well, but it must be fired. Unlike Mangetsu which is in essence a wormhole that absorbs all that is around it. After channeling his chakra and swinging his blade, Getsuga Tenshō releases a volley of crescent shaped bladed or orbed portals. When a blasted portal makes partial contact with a target, only the part it touched is absorbed into Tiangou. Meaning they are spatially severed into two location. Sucking its contacted part into Tiangou and leaving the rest at the current location. Orbs leave a spherical hole while crescent shape resembles a bladed attack. It is a technique that cannot be stopped by normal means, as it cuts space itself. By literally absorbing all that occupies that space, the surrounding object is bifurcated, unable to reconnect. Even environmental objects contacted are inhaled by Dan's mighty blast.As they do not consume an entire target, Getsuga Tenshō is his more offensive technique.
    • Dan fires his Getsuga Tenshō at a mountain. Creating a wormhole into Tiangou's stomach.
    • After disappearing, everything that occupied that space is sucked into Tiangou's stomach.
    A single portal will continue forward through an object or person. Spatially severing them into multiple pieces and casting those said pieces into Tiangou. He has severed those who claimed indestructible skin in half, and pierced cleanly through absolute defenses. Things that obstruct his path are sucked in as well, destroying his enemies hopes for using physical defenses. Getsuga Tenshō's blast disappears after coming into contact with a target. But it also sends the part of the person or object it touched into Tiangou alongside its sealing. Dan can manipulate the size of these bladed portals, so they can rapidly consume an entire person without cutting them into two different places. Dan's Getsuga Tenshō portals often shut when they absorbed a piece of object. Firing continuous valleys causes a target to spatially rip into different pieces, half of which are located inside Tiangou's stomach and others floating about. Dan can manipulate the size of both blasted portals. Either sending a massive portal flying at a target or a thin crescent blade that cuts his opponent in half. making it more effective against larger and more powerful opponents....Dan usually wills this portal shut.
Tsuyu Unsealed

Dan unseals Tsuyunoinochi. Allowing it to take its true form.

Dan has released Tsuyunoinochi in times of utter importance, often when his brother is in danger. When released, Tsuyunoinochi turns into an over-sized dog's fang, fitting for Dan's theme. The cross guard becomes a large patch of fur similar to Mokomoko-sama. In its released form, an Inugami becomes visible to all connected to Dan. Carrying out his every will. He is able to revive a larger amount of people. By opening a portal into Tiangou, he can call upon those who have failed Tiangou's test. Demonic, vicious man beast who fight for him. Tsuyunoinochi also summons spiritual dogs to consume his enemies. It is said that these dogs are actually Okuri-inu. When released, these dogs follow his every order. They are incredibly fast and can morph through physical matter. Their teeth and claws are sharp enough to rip humans to pieces in a matter of seconds. They are said to be so ferocious that no other dangerous yokai or wild animals will come close when summoned. His Okuri-inu only harm those who hold a negative intention to Dan and those he wishes to protect. Spirits who are cut down by his sword are transformed into spirit Dogs to live out their eternity at his command. Absorbing his spirit dogs into his sword and channeling it, Dan is able to use a one-time attack which reverts his blade back into its sealed form for a cool down. The attack is said to be able to create a gigantic dog spirit that consumes all in its path. Sealing it within Tsuyunoinochi, increasing its power for future use. Dan furthers his mastery by allowing his Inugami to possess his body. Doing so grants his Inugami sense any foreign influences or anything wrong with his body. It also forms as a defense against techniques which possess his person. Inugami are able to fend off other spiritual demons and beings. With his presence, Dan can fend off the Shinigami. After forming the connection between Tiangou and Tsuyunoinochi, Dan's blade acquired a new technique, known simply as Mangetsu.

  • Mangetsu (満月,Mangetsu) is its full form. An orb that resembles Yakigakure's full moon. Although Dan can fire Getsuga Tenshō as an orb, Mangetsu is significantly larger. And unlike Getsuga Tenshō, this orb uses his chakra as a suction force, absorbing all that surrounds him. A wormhole of sorts. Also, instead of severing his enemies, it is used to transport targets and objects into Tiangou as a whole. Its shape increases Mangetsu's size. Amplifying its purpose. More for defense, it's large size allows him to teleport extremely dangerous targets into Tiangou. Entire mountains have been consumed by this blades unique power. And alongside Takenshi's earth release, they transformed a mountainous land into one perfect for a village. He has absorbed attacks that are simply catastrophic, transforming a hellish situation into a serene sky.
Red Tsuyu

Dan's sword takes on its demonic aura, preparing to release Saigo no Getsuga Tenshō.

  • Saigo no Getsuga Tenshō(最後の月牙天衝, The Final Moon Fang Heaven-Piercer) is Tsuyunoinochi's strongest blast....

The scabbard of Tsuyunoinochi, like its blade, is able to erect a barrier...

Similar to Mokomoko-sama, Tsuyunoinochi is connected to Dan's life-force and spirit.

INudama summoning

Tsuyunoinochi also allows Dan to summon Inudama (犬玉,Inudama), small spiritual dog-like creatures who are said to be puppy spirits. They are summoned to consume meat and bone as well as possess people. Transforming them into wild creatures for Dan to control.

Murasame

1154881343 f

Dan using Murasame to call down intense lightning blast from above.

Murasame (村雨,Murasame; "Literally Meaning; Village Rain or Autumn Rain") is a powerful blade passed throughout his family. Like his other treasures, Mokomoko-sama and his second sword, Murasame is a sentient blade. Murasame is a blade that Dan has mastered fully. Making it more useful than his stronger sword, Tsuyunoinochi. It is a regular looking Katana with a unique ability to summon powerful Rainstorms. However these rainstorms possess a special attribute. Whatever element his sword taste, his summoned rain takes on its attribute. He can feed his sword with natural elements or elements created from jutsu, effectively using his opponents nature against them. Fire causes his rain to burn. Literally leaving burns at a higher degree than third. Melting flesh as if submerged in a pot of boiling water. Tasting earth turns his rain into a defensive force. A circle of continuous rain falls with such power that it can block attacks of various levels. He can also release a blast of downwards water at incredible power. Water creates a physical sensing rain that senses a person's physical presence rather than their energy. As long as his hand rest on Murasame's handle, he is able of locating a person who occupies space. But it does not distinguish people from one another. It is usually used as a secondary sensory to his normal bestial senses. Tasting wind gives his rain immense piercing damage, slicing and his skewering his enemies in seconds. Lightning is said to be his strongest taste. When Murasame drinks electricity, his is able to summon natural lightning bolts. Freely striking his opponent and surroundings. As long as his hands holds onto its handle his rains are continuous.

Tamashī no Nenju

Main article: Tamashī no Nenju

Kohaku no Jōhei

Main article: Kohaku no Jōhei After a meeting with Raido, Dan acquired an ancient tool that once belonged to the Rikudo Sennin. A powerful sealing treasure which furthered Dan's ability to protect Yakigakure. As with all treasures that once belonged to Hagoromo, the Amber Pot requires large chakra reserves. Only Dan is capable of continuously activating it, a feat not accomplished since Kumogakure's Third Raikage. When one responds to Dan's call, his pot seals anything within after recording their voice. The pot has a stylised kanji for "lightning" (雷, kaminari) on it and a thick rope tied around its rim.

Dan keeps the Amber Pot sealed within his room. Protected by barriers that keep it unable to be stolen by common thieves. For usage, Dan performs a Summoning Technique to call it to his position.

Poison Claws

Poisonclaws.jpg.w560h420

A unique power completely unrelated to his dog based theme, Dan learned how to convert his energy into poison. He witnessed it after watching a medic-nin protect her students from a cloud of intruders through a poison cloud. Using his increased Chakra flow, Dan managed to coat his paw with a green poisonous aura.

Because he is not a medic-nin, Dan is unable to cover more than his claws.

Inuzuka Clan Techniques

Sesshomaru-Transforming-leap-sesshomaru-10525175-703-398

Dan's four legs technique transforms him into a humanoid beast with an immense chakra shroud.

Perhaps Dan's key to his success, from the youngest age possible, Dan mastered his clans techniques and improved it through his life. Especially after mastering his inner beast. It of course started with a strong bond between his Wolfish Ninken Konmei, a large dog that resembles a wild dog. His basic clan techniques revolved around their Four Legs Technique. A technique which gifts him beast-like accelerated fighting instinct and reflexes. Through encompassing his entire body in chakra and moving on all fours, his speed movement and reflexes mirrors that of a wild creature. When combined with his natural physical prowess and chakra control, his speed is enough to mimic teleportation, instantly appearing in a specific area and losing eyes blessed by gods. This is due through a combined physical training with weights that enhanced his physical enhancing techniques further. His already feral-like appearances; incredibly sharp canine teeth, finger and toenails increase to claw-like lengths, his eyes follow with his pupils becoming nothing more than slits. Dan's feats of physical strength, speed, agility and endurance are immense even by Inuzuka levels. This form is used for a ferocious "hit-and-run" system of battling that his family is infamous for. Sheer speed and strength mixed with incredible agility and acrobatics leaves his opponent blurred and unable to launch a counter attack let alone perform another technique. Dan once used this formation to stop a Samurai from drawing his blade. Using Four Leg Technique, Dan adopted his families Beast Human Taijutsu (獣人体術, Jūjin Taijutsu; Literally meaning "Beast Human Body Technique"). Because of his royal lineage and awakening of his bestial spirit, activating this technique causes Dan to physically shift into a humanoid wild dog mixture. Shinobi no longer see Dan as a physical being as he becomes a dog visually and through chakra sensing. Dan's devilish Ninken are able to follow his lead and transform into unmistakable humans as well as activate this technique. Reaching his level of strength and power, his overall attack is easily tripled. Together, they utilize a high-speed, high power combination style of fighting. Each beast attacks after one another, aiming at their target's blind spot.

As an Inuzuka, his chakra control had to exist as unsurpassed. His own father noted that Dan's level of control lead to him having an incredible mastery over his clans techniques. So much so it had been enhanced to unforeseen levels. At base level, his strength is already enough to effortlessly break through rocks and crush bones. But he was able to intensify his chakra while activating his beast infusing technique, thus further amplifying his overall physical power. A simple swipe is enough to send a person flying across a village at speeds that make it impossible to stop. His attacks become devastating, unstoppable and unimaginable. It is said that he equals up to Tailed Beast infused Jinchuuriki at this level, albeit having to combine two techniques. Rare it is for him to have to go beyond, as his unimaginable speed makes blocking impossible. As seen with his training against Rock Lee, where he easily kept up with him in his third gates before brutally and ferociously sending him flying through an entire forest[4] with a swipe, being only sixteen at the time. Through chakra control, Dan can increase the reach of his nails and claws for further damage as well as further push their durability. Allowing him to effortlessly shred through metal. As previously mentioned, Dan trained with weights to increase his physical prowess. All of which add up to create a devastating hand-to-hand combatant. After awakening his inner spirit, Dan's power boosted tremendously. His transformations were such that they would no longer revert after damage. Almost mimicking Konmei's perfect shape shifting ability.

Dan's power is further enhanced exponentially by his heart and Sage training. As with all pure blooded Inu warriors, he holds an innate affinity for the wild. Natural energy streams into his body and mixes perfectly with his physical and spiritual energies. All of his techniques are passively increased immeasurably. His and Konmei's transformations do not revert upon damage. His physical capabilities are nothing less than monstrous. His inner bestial energy amplifies his techniques so they are ferocious. Sensors and non sensors alike will see a hellish hound surround Dan upon releasing his chakra.

TRANSFORMATIONRESIZE

Dan created an entire fighting style surrounding his dog-like abilities. His speed turns his hand into a blast of hundreds wolf shaped palms launching at his target, clawing and completely demolishing his target. But never is it from a single path. Through quick action, he rapidly attacks, breaking his opponent with each blow. Speed creating illusions of multiple attacks. But it is with his hounds that he becomes a true threat. After transforming into him, they are able to perform all of his techniques at an equal level. Meaning they can achieve his strength with an unseen ease. They are also gifted with the ability of chakra control, and can unleash their very own seals. Dan is also a master of his clans hiden techniques. As an individual, his own techniques are unimaginable when compared to his clansmen.

Passing Fang

Dan using Passing Fang by himself.

A testament is that his Passing Fang technique reaches a speed that is strong enough to rip through absolute defenses. His speeds often if not always summon massive, immense whirlwinds that increase damages incredibly. At at his level of power, it can absorb surrounding elements to increase its own strength while avoiding damage to himself. He has transformed into a flaming blast of fire using his enemies fire ball, a massive tornado of water and even shatter through diamonds. His Fang Passing Fang set is strong enough to easily shred through most if not any defense. And he contains combination moves that transform him and his brothers into a whirlwind of devastating attacks, their immense speed and strength greatly amplifying each. After awakening his spirit their combination transformations are such that they can become a three headed dog and unleash Super Fang Wolf Fang as well as other combination attacks continuously without reverting. Although dynamic marking is still necessary, Dan has used other ways to track his target. His Passing Fang set also makes use of a larger attack radius. Through his sheer speed, his body releases razor winds that fly from his whirlwind. Meaning, if an opponent manages to dodge it, they will still receive damage. This is usually shown by claw marks the appear below their attack, resembling a wild beast approaching. But Dan is also infamous for a technique that does the exact reverse of his clans main human transformation.

The Inuzuka Brother's are known for their use of a special version of their double headed dog. While combination techniques are achieved through simple transformations such as Beast Human Clone, Konmei and Dan's Fusion abilities revolve around Konmei's shape shifting skill. As Konmei is able to become an actual human, Dan's and Konmei chakra can link together before taking shape. Instead of a simple transformations, The Inuzuka brothers actually become the Inuzuka's infamous two headed dog. As one, their chakra among and physical attributes given monstrously unbelievable enhancements. They are able to constantly attack without fear of reverting as even if they run low on energy, they will not separate. In this form, The Inuzuka brothers can continuously utilize their Passing Fang technique for super devastation. Also, they can combine it with their physical enhancement hiden as a method of improving their overall power. As mentioned previously, they do not separate from damage or lack of sustainable energy. Although a powerful advantage, it can also serve as an extreme disadvantage. Should they run low, they will remain trapped as one until they gather enough energy to willfully revert themselves.

Also, due to Dan's requirement of forming a third shadow clone, they are unable to classify their usage of Human Beast Mixture Transformation: Three-Headed Wolf. Meaning that technique still suffers from the same weakness as its normal usage. Dan often states that the third head was supposed to be Senken. Hence, a perfected Three Headed Wolf that would fuse permenantly. However, this became impossible upon Senken's death.

He created a shape-shifting technique that transforms him into a demonic dog. He refers to this form as his true-self, a hellish hound. It is one half of the Double Headed wolf combo. It's size depends solely on his reason. He has reached levels that rival summons as well as enough to chase a house-hold pet cat through its door. Similar to his other transformation techniques, this technique does not disappear after an attack. He has fought entire battles while taking incredible damage in this form. Although he loses his ability to speak, he is incredibly faster, more nimble and ferocious. It is also an amazing way for him to move about. Dan has such a mastery over this technique that he can perform it without hand seals. It begins with his eyes changing color, then his body elongated and such. He has transformed unconsciously as well. And during his playful hours, he will become a dog for children to pet. But in battle, it becomes a powerful asset, especially during times that require a team up. Partial transformations are possible as well, although semi-useless. At full power, Dan becomes a dog that rivals summoning beast. And it is in this form that his Inuzuka techniques are at their strongest. Able to create valleys, it is a rumored level that very few have witnessed. But unlike his dog formation, which concentrates it into a controllable size, this form uses attacks that are absolutely devastating and uncontrollable

Enhanced Hunting and Tracking

"They say his nose surpasses even the strongest Byakugan."

Naturally, Dan's sense of smell and hearing are said to be a gift upon man, reaching for countries. Allowing him to watch over his village. Without kneading chakra, his sense of smell outmatches a Bloodhound's. He is able to track a man easily through multiple countries. Once Dan obtains a man's scent, it is impossible to evade him. By concentrating his chakra in his nose, Dan's sense of smell increases to that thousand's times more sensitive and powerful than that of a bloodhound. He is able to distinguish people by their scent, so much so, he can individualize every citizen, object and plant within his village. His sense of smell is a way of identifying a target, animate or inanimate. It's biological, physical, emotional and mental description all described through their scent. Even clans are categorized. Specific chemical excretions are picked up. Dan was able to deduce that the The Provisional Kazekage was actually a puppet through his smell alone. Dan's sense of smell easily alerts him of his targets physical condition and surrounding. Because his distance far surpasses Inuzuka of old, Dan has never lost a target. His tracking is absolutely superb. Across countries, his target will be found. Traps also fall under his incredible power of scent as well as detecting those who approach. Dan once sensed an enemy from his countries border. A feat that shocked his citizens. It is for such a reason that murder is rare within Yakigakure. Spilled blood attracts his attention. Dan's sense of smell had been proven upon his discovery of Raido X entering his land; Where he told of smelling Raido before he set foot upon his country while correctly titling him an Uchiha[5].

After passing his great ancestor's test, Dan's sense of smell and hearing received an increase like none other. Through extensive time in Tiangou's gastric stomach, it's wretched environment almost drove him mad. But Dan's sense of smell became accustomed to it upon success. His training transformed his environment from a hellish aura into an everyday norm to him. He could differentiate those who failed the previous trials even while trapped inside Tiangou. And within time, his nose grew incredibly powerful within. This journey strengthened his nose in multiple aspects. In terms of sense of smell, Dan's base smelling capabilities exponentially outmatched Ninken of all varieties. It reached a level of existence that is on an entirely different plane when compared. His nose's smelling capabilities at base can distinguish every person, object, animal, and plant in a country without fault. Every man, women and child. Animal, furniture. Anything with an odor falling victim to his nose. Trillions upon trillions of scents constantly surrounding him. He has continuously shown that his nose far outreaches a Byakugan's sight. He can identify a target and even describe what it is through its scent. He could also pick up scents that a normal human could not at stronger levels than the strongest beast. Hormones and sicknesses excreted are picked up his nose. Allowing him to understand nearly any situation before arriving. It is impossible to lie to Dan due to him smelling the chemicals released from a persons body. Dan also is capable of determining other biological and psychological tendencies through a persons released chemicals. Flowing chakra, Dan is literally tunes his nose, increasing or decreasing its power. Focusing solely on an object all on a wide variety of scents before focusing on a specific target. Doing so takes the appearance of him zooming in upon a trails, going miles onto he reaches its source. It is said, with his nose, there is not a place on a planet a person can go without Dan finding them. He can increase his noses capabilities through chakra so it reaches further than his normal limits. Another aspect is its resilience. Tiangou's wretched stomach had a vile aura. It smelt far worst than Death's stomach. Its power enhanced his nose's strength. Soon, his nose was able to handle it as if it were flowers. After leaving Tiangou's innards, Dan's nose could withstand powerful scents, allowing Dan to overcome. Because smells usually are traceable, enhancing and focusing zooms his sense of smell beyond his base. Allowing him to effectively cover multiple countries through concentration.

  • Dan's nose creates a three dimensional map of his full surroundings.
  • After focusing, Dan can locate armies countries away.

His sense of smell creates his infamous blindsight. He is able to understand with his nose. Comprehending his entire surroundings for miles on out. Dan's nose creates a three dimensional map that stretches far beyond countries. Colors of different combinations whisper along this map, creating innumerable trails to its sources. Leaving traces and tracks upon contact. Very few trails similar, none perfectly identical. This source is an aura that surrounds the physical shape; described as a phantom. No trail or phantom remains alike as previously mentioned. As their body secretes different chemicals, come into contact with different scents or exhibits environmental, physical, emotional and mental changes, their aura follows. Giving every person their own constantly changing yet remaining signature. This allows Dan to literally see through his nose, what and who they are. Animate or inanimate as well as their previous actions. Because his nose has such an incredible range, he often views his village with this blindsight. Trillions of color combinations radiating through his village. He can focus through each, seemingly zooming in on a particular one. Stretching his blindsight for miles upon reaching its source. It also creates a sort of clairvoyance. Through certain bodily changes, Dan can predict an incoming attack or danger. He can see a situation before arriving, and exist in multiple locations at once through his nose. Combined with his scent, Dan's taijutsu is enhanced. He is able to fight without his eyes. A feat that makes him deadly to those who require eye contact. Darkness, smoke or mind-tricks are useless upon his nose. Shinobi who Teleport through dimensions are instantly rediscovered upon reentry. And it is impossible to hide no matter how fast one hides are, and through incredible speed attack without notice. Those marked are unable to evade his scent entirely. In a way one could say his eye sight is a hindrance. As it overlaps his blind sight. Dan's range and strength increases unimaginably once his eyes are closed, causing him to access his blindsight fully.

Dan's hearing was equally increased. He has heard whispers from across his village and high pitched sounds that go unnoticed to humans. He outmatches bats in hearing. Dan's own call for Konmei is through silent whistles that go unheard to humans. Even those that possess enhanced hearing themselves. His sense of hearing alerts him of potential danger. Medicinally, he is able to hear a persons heart beat from an incredible distance away. This serves for interrogations greatly. Also, his ears can pick up natural disasters or attacks that resemble natural disasters, granting him a sixth sense. Through it, Dan can almost see things before they happen. Sounds that travel, no matter how low, are louder in his ears. Causing him to react quicker to sneak attacks. He often teases that he knew of the attack the second it had been talked about. Together with his monstrous nose, escaping him becomes nothing less of a dream. With his spiritual power, Dan picks up on spirits. Being able to both hear and smell them. But not see. Dan's eyesight grants him night vision. An unprecedented clarity that surpasses other canine's.

Dan has a unique ability of consciously receiving and deducing a person's pheromones. Because pheromones are a subconscious biological secretion, it is a sensory type that is impossible to mask. His smelling capability evolves into a sixth sense of sorts. It is so strong, Dan is able to literally smell one's fear or worry. A compliment to his deadly title. Targets always feel fear or worry when his name is mentioned. Meaning all targets leave a bright trail during his hunts. And through distance, escaping becomes impossible. Fear and worry is a biological reaction. It is a scent that one is unable to mask. During discussions, Dan uses his smell to deduce an opponents level of calmness. He also smells a person's sadness. Through trail pheromones that are left, Dan determines who occupied a specific space and picks up on their path. Responses including alarms and triggers are received through Dan. Allowing him to perfectly understand a situation before actually arriving. Being miles away and knowing all that is happening. Against other clans who use animals, such as an Aburame, it is nearly impossible to surprise him with gender specific attacks. As with most of his enhanced traits, the length is simply incredible.

His enhanced senses have granted him a form of immunity to certain illusions. Even if an opponent creates a false reality visually, Dan's sense of smell and increased hearing crafts a link to reality. He can see a real person surrounded by illusions through hearing for a heartbeat.

Through intense training, Dan mastered his art of Sense Focusing. His chakra is able to block out all other scents and sounds to focus strongly on his target. He describes it as creating a trail of light leading directly to his target within a world of darkness.

As any Hunter should, Dan holds an extensive knowledge of both wildlife and fauna behavior.

Senjutsu

403564-captainwolf large

Dan first revealing his incomplete silver moon technique to Kazuma Senju during the Exams.

Dan, as an extremely innovative Inuzuka, pushed his clan's hiden into maximum levels ultimately causing him to come across a technique thought long forgotten by his clan. A Sage Mode variant that few learned over time. It was said to be the clan's strongest transformation before being domesticated into the Four Legs technique. The current usage of the Four Legs Technique transforms the user into a bestial mixture of human with dog like traits. A creature who retained their human composure but acted as a wild dog, with feral physical power that went unmatched by all that walked on two feet. But before, when Inuzuka were simply a tribe of man and beast, they utilized a greater transformation. One that involved the usage of Natural Energy as a third component. Because its dramatic increase of power, Inuzuka Shino forbade Inuzuka clan members from kneading Natural Energy into their Four Legs transformation, thus ridding his clan of innate usage of their transformation. But Dan's determination brought him to his famed; Fang Transformation. A technique forbidden to Inuzuka, it is said that if an Inuzuka uses it, they will forever be cursed as a wild beast. That they'd leave their location and return to the Hill of Dogs to haunt its forest for all eternity. But Dan was able to use it before awakening his spirit. His lineage and immense beast spirit allowed him to retain his base instincts and subconscious tendencies. Although he did go mad, his drive and love kept him focused until his natural energy depleted. Resulting in him reverting back. After his years training at the hill of dogs, Dan learned to awaken and control his inner beast. Gaining a certain control in this form. It is achieved through a method different from other forms. It uses the same concept of remaining still, becoming one with nature. However, it involves a specific stance. In order to achieve this sage mode, Dan must remain on all fours and not move. His bestial energy will circulate his body while natural energy enters. Coming into complete balance with his chakra. It is shrunk and streamed through his person. The Senjutsu transformation will form an invisible aura around him strong enough to create a crater from pure pressure. With his intense energy, his body literally transforms into that more than a beast. His body becomes that of a werehound, but through mastered control, he retains his human shape. Compacting beast level energy and physical power into his human form, also increased with carefully balanced natural energy. His bestial appearances grows exponentially. Hair covering his body, fangs and claws. His muscles and bones becoming beast like. A demonic man beast with ferocious teeth and bestial claws that resemble wolf rather than man. His bones and innards are morphed to that of a werehound to better contain his power increase and allow bestial physical enhancements. Through a newly grafted body, his transformation technique allowed him to go head to head with a full formed tailed beast and subdue them. At first, Dan would lose all form of human consciousness. Rampaging for hours until his chakra drained itself. For that reason it became labeled as a Kinjutsu. Forbidden for him to use. Empty eyes preying on his hunt. Partially used, Dan's face would transform roughly to that of a dog with immense hair growing on half of his body. During an extreme battle, Dan managed to master his technique. In this form, his body is imprinted with purple claw marks. His hair grows spiky from his intense chakra and he grows fur on numerous places. His pupils darken as well. Dan combines it with his two brothers, to triple it's overall power. With three werewolves all attacking at once, a heavenly barrage is unleashed. Dan's clan based techniques are boosted to catastrophic levels. Dan's abilities are pushed to extremes;

  • Senjutsu Manipulation: First and foremost, Dan possesses the ability to manipulate Natural Energy both internal and external. An overwhelming aura of natural energy surrounds his person. He is able to manipulate this cloak similar to a tailed beast shroud. His physical strikes increase in distance. Every swipe, kick, punch or even bite travels. Attacking enemies miles away. He can manipulate his senjutsu aura, or general natural energy around him, to create extensions of his physical body. Claws that slice through absolute defenses, that choke enemies a considerable distance from him. He can use this aura to form arms, nails, legs, teeth, anything upon his body for from him. Making it almost impossible to truly escape. His taijutsu becomes a Long Range aspect. Because Natural Energy is all around him, there is yet a definite limit to how far his attacks can reach. Defensively, Dan can create multiple limbs and extensions as a method of protection. Once grabbing a falling Chosho while battling a group of enemies. His extensive use of Senjutsu is based purely on his imagination. He has bitten out throats of people who stood far from him.
    • Sixth Sense: Similar to others who can sense chakra, Dan gains a sixth sense. A precognitive eye on the back of his neck which alerts him of danger...
    • Fear of the Wild: A Dog Sage is a hunter. He is the predator. Those two eyes which peer from the darkness of trees belong to him. The creature within darkness who will consume their target at any minute. Dan's Senjutsu aura embodies this natural occurence. Those in his presence believe themselves to stand back in the wild forest their families once found shelter in. Dan awakens mans primordial, subconscious, genetic memory of a time when people lived and hunted in forest. A time where they were food for wild creatures. It is this time from which man developed many evolutionary traits. But never had it been forgotten. They start to envision trees. Hear calls of wild animals. They smell, touch even taste their predators presence. Surrounding them. They feel like the prey they once were. This causes all in his presence to fear him. To constantly feel like a beast is behind, about to pounce. They start to hallucinate. Create illusions of multiple wild dogs surrounding them. Growling. They lose track of Dan. Hesitate. Some passing out from fear or suffering from heart attacks.
Full power dan

During Dan's first usage, he lost all form of human consciousness.

  • Enhanced Agility: Dan's body is structured differently. His bones make it easier to perform amazing feats of acrobatics and agility. He can transfer from one movement to another with incredible ease. Leading to dodging attacks, swinging from objects, and performing a massive amount of gymnastic, athletic and acrobatic feats with little to no wasted energy. When combined with his other physical enhancements, catching him is increasingly harder if not impossible. He is able to react in mid-air and re-position his body accordingly. Things thought impossible for a human body is no longer so. Dan's speed often creates an illusion of flight. And through high speed movement, it is thought that he literally bounces without foot hold.
First Time Full Transformation

Dan mastering his awe inspiring power.

  • Enhanced Senses (Smell and Hearing): Although his sense of hearing and smell are unimaginable on average, in this form, Dan's sense of smell is enough to rival his ancestor, and current Great Dog Sage.

Enhanced Reflexes: As a wild creature, Dan's excellent senses are hooked to his reflexes. His body acts on instinct rather than conscious thought. Making fighting him physically nearly impossible. He can react near instantly and move his body accordingly. His hand-to-hand combat is also deadlier as it follows massive strings of combination attacks. Deadly, unpredictable movements and unmerciful barrages. As in this form he plays with his food, his attacks become bestial. But one with a gift can use it to their advantage.
High Durability:Dan is not invulnerable. But he is incredibly durable. Physical attacks are brushed off and followed up with a devastating counter. Damage that would usually cause more harm in his human form, waived. It is a form that transforms him into a literal demon. His body has sustained damages from released tailed beast, allowing him to go head to head with one....

As with Sage Mode, in order to gather more natural energy, Dan requires to remain still in his hunting stance. But to do so in battle remains difficult. Besides a use of Clone's, Dan created a secondary method of gathering natural energy. After mastering his Sage Mode variant, Dan mastered a technique that served as a method of overcoming Sage Mode's major weakness. Once in Sage Mode, the user will easily drain out their Natural Energy since Sage Mode require's one remains still to continue gathering Natural Energy. Dan can use Shadow Clones to gather Senjutsu but even still, doing so proves a threat. During his time on the Hill of Dogs, he realized how Mokomoko-sama and himself had become connected. This realization brought him to his famed, Sage Art: Canis Technique. During his Hunting Stance, Mokomoko-sama will attach to Dan's lower back side, resembling a tail. While attach, Dan's tail continuously absorbs natural energy. Allowing Dan to remain in Sage Mode for extended periods of time.

Sealed

Senken sealed inside of Dan's mind.

Dogs who were wronged or mistreated do not pass on. Often, their souls become powerful gods forever bent on vengeance. Twisted creatures surrendered completely to bestial instincts. Inugami. Practicing arts that involve manipulating these angry spirits are ranked Kinjutsu. Still, due to important cultural ties, Inugami mochi still exist. However, Dan became a special case during a tragic night. After Senken sacrificed his life in hopes of protecting his brothers, Senken's soul underwent a horrid transformation. Senken, once a gentle and kind soul morphed into a hateful spirit. One containing unimaginable power. Befitting his title of Dog God. To not only avoid his clan's home destruction but his siblings destruction, Dan fought him off. He remained powerless. All of his attacks, meaningless. However; his spiritual energy reacted. Mimicking Senken's own. Suddenly, it drew upon their ancestor's power before sealing Senken inside of Dan.

Senken has no memory of what transpired that night. Only following his hateful, vengeful urges. But deep inside a light shines. One that protects his brother throughout all challenges. Although he states his wish of fully possessing Dan, Senken constantly demonstrates restraint. An unnerving feeling that his purpose involves protecting both Dan and Konmei. Yet, Senken will attempt to break Dan. Consciously wishing to push Dan into his bestial nature further. Transforming him into a monster fully..

Although not a true Tailed Beast, Senken grants Dan multiple abilities for him to call upon. Without partial or full transformation, Dan can access minimal amounts of these skills. Often used in times of certain death, they act as guards placed by Senken to protect his forgotten brother

  • Banishment: Banishment is a useful roar which banishes spirits that are aggressive towards Dan.
  • Flight: Calling on Senken's power grants him a limited ability to fly...

Through Full possession, Dan gains an exponential power boost..

  • Bestial Release: Dan can release the bestial instincts of people, turning man into wild animal....

The Dog Trinity

Dan is one of two Inuzuka to truly master the Dog trinity. He tamed living, dead and spiritual canines. All of which calling him their master. Inuzuka often master living hounds. Becoming absolute monsters of Ninken. Alphas who control immense packs alongside their Canine sibling. But few evolve and manipulate the hounds that have passed. And only after becoming a master can one hope to reach the spiritual level...

The Living Beast: Master of Ninken

Dan was often referred to as Dan of The Dogs (犬のダン,Inu no Dan) for his natural born affinity for feral and domesticated dog based techniques. Those who summon wolves and Dogs build their own pack, meaning one's Dog summon rarely involves another. Rumors speak of Dan sporting an unimaginably large pack. A pack that consist of a wide variety of breeds and an incredible amount of individual dogs. Ninken's of all shape and sizes. His Ninjutsu revolves majorly on summoning his hounds. Dan's Ninken pack views both Dan and Konmei as their Alpha. None being able to match up to their level of power and connection while exhibiting extreme levels of power. Ninken who are able to speak refer to Dan and Konmei as their Lord. All hounds bowing within their presence. They follow his every command viewing both as pack leader. Because it is rare for Dan and Konmei to ever split, Dan utilizes Ninken to track multiple enemies or in instances where an enemy escapes his grasp, splits up from a group, or diverts his attention. This allows him to keep Konmei by his side while sending other members of his pack to fight for him. As head of the pack, Dan and Konmei are referred to as a Lord Status. Dan and Konmei are able to understand every member. Their barks becoming basic communications.

Dan's Ninja Hounds are masters of utilizing chakra and performing techniques. His Ninken possess an Earth Release nature affinity. An asset he heavily takes advantage of. During Dan's technique, his summoned Ninken tunnel underground, not appearing until they have reached their target. Whereas users require smearing one's blood upon their victim, Dan has Konmei mark his enemy or enemies. Konmei's markings are insanely strong. Dan and his hounds can track a man countries away through this mark. Followed by summoning Ninken that tunnel underground towards his targets for miles. This creates a deadly situation. During a battle, an entire platoon disappeared after Dan placed his hand upon the earth. This method of marking also grants Dan an incredible advantage. Because he literally summons his hounds underground, which is where they tunnel through, there are times when his hounds do not surface at all. Disappearing after dragging his opponent under. Meaning he holds the element of surprise in his hand. A simple touch can lead to ten hounds chasing a target beneath the earth without a person's knowledge. Because they travel below earth, they avoid plenty counters.

Because Dan's contract over Ninken is an affinity based summoning, he is capable of using such techniques without scrolls and through minimum handseals. In some instances, a simple touch sends a couple hounds chasing after his opponent. Larger techniques such as one that calls a massive dogs head from below require smaller chakra consumption than if a regular summoning attempted it.

In Dan's presence, Dan's ninken use Collaboration and Mixture techniques alongside Dan and Konmei perfectly. They can transform without seals and perform devastating combinations. Although they lack Dan and Konmei's ability to perform high powered Transformations they are able to become clones of Dan, alongside their lord, and use truly devastating attacks.

A large majority of Dan's dogs utilize different blades. Some hold massive swords in their mouths, others collaborate to summon bladed throwing weapons. Because they are able to perform ninjutsu through chakra control, they can call weapons for free usage. Their Kenjutsu skills are impressive enough to go toe to toe with several Kumogakure squads.

A testament to his power, one that the Great Dog Sage has attributed to him, is his contract with the Tiangou (天狗, Tiangou "literally meaning: Heavenly Dog"). It is a summon that has not been seen in ages, only returning through various rumors and legends. It is said to be a heavenly dog that travels through the heavens, consuming the sun during an eclipse and defecating the moon. The technique is a space-time ninjutsu of immense proportion. Through required hand seals, Dan warps himself and his targets into the Tiangou's massive stomach. After passing its trial, he kept free access to Tiangou's innards as a battlefield, prison and overall as his own personal domain. The technique itself is the actual space-time ninjutsu that warps himself and others into Tiangou's apparently infinite stomach. The dog's stomach, thought to consume the sun, is absolutely massive, seemingly never ending. For this reason, Dan boast that this technique is similar to bringing others into his own dimension. He spent years learning every nook and cranny of it. It's effects, the composition even the location and process it induces upon humans who attempt Tiangou's trial. By teleporting himself, this jutsu transforms into a method of dodging extremely powerful attacks. And in situations where his allies lives are at stake, Dan can bring them along for safety. But no mere shinobi could hope to survive Tiangou's stomach; often referred to as The belly of the beast, Hell itself. When used for protecting loved ones, Dan must call upon his Ko beads power. This way, his heavenly barrier protects those who travel with him from Tiangou's hellish insides. Using it as a battlefield, its rare for an opponent to survive its basic conditions upon entry, let alone continue battling Dan Inuzuka who is capable of fighting without hindrance while inside. This becomes his realm. One that is both infamous and feared. Due to its usage, the Tiangou's stomach is nearly indestructible. Resilient to all natures.

Surrounding it's fleshy constructs are immense oceans of strong corrosive gastric acid that can dissolve anything that should happen to fall into it. This gastric acid emits an unimaginably strong smell. One that causes blood to leak through every pore. A natural man killing poison. Inhaling it induces unconsciousness and suffocation. Should one possess a strong enough will or unique means of survival, the gas drives them to madness. It smells worst than death. Dissolving flesh. Gas. Absolutely horrid. Those with capable noses lose that sense completely. It is strong enough to cast powerful hallucinations. People who matter. Allies, loved ones and friends. All killed within these illusions. It is a hallucination that is natural, making it different from Genjutsu. As in a simple release does nothing.

Tiangou's innards are infinitely dark. Darkness inside Tiangou is nearly alive. One could not make out their own body from darkness. Light is consumed within and a high pitched sound is also emitted, causing ones mind to further fall into insanity. Because of his training, these disadvantages become advantages. His senses are just as strong here, making it his ultimate hunting ground. By teleporting his enemies here, Dan basically controls his own field. Also, since Tiangou soars through earth's heavens, its stomach serves sort as a different realm. Those trapped inside or nonexistent to those outside.

Inside Tiangou are hundreds if not thousands of those who failed his test before. They take form of demonic man beast. Blind and feral, hunting to consume all that they smell. Even fighting one another. It turns this battlefield into a hellish realm. One where one has to worry about their surrounding environment and creatures.

In instances in which Dan wishes to hold a target, or let Tiangou's inner conditions kill them, he can send his enemies their by themselves. After making contact, Dan warps people into the Tiangou's stomach, either dropping them immediately towards his ocean of acid or letting them fall upon its flesh as a method of imprisonment. Doing so, allows Dan to remove his enemies while he remains in the outside world. When used for imprisonment, Tiangou's inner darkness mixed in with its gastric acid often drives his opponents mad. They experience never ending illusions and lose all track of time, rarely does one not fall unconscious upon arrival. Dan can re-summon his prisoners through a basic summoning technique as well.

Inugami Style: The Savior of Spirits

"I can feel your pain. The suffering you endured. Let me save you..."
— Dan Inuzuka

First Draft

The infamous Inugami sealed inside of Tsuyunoinochi

Dan is one of few Inuzuka who mastered his ancient clan's Inugami Style Techniques. Dan's mother was infamously linked to the great dog sage, Yatsufusa. Also a descendant of the Inuzuka Clan's founder and his brothers. However, his fathers blood contained that of a family who were infamous Inugami mochi. Inugami mochi descendants had received a blessing from their ancestors. Their souls possessed an immense amount of Yin, the source from which their incredible bestial powers resonated. Those of higher spiritual energy could connect to spirits with extreme ease. This allowed their descendants to link their spirits to that of Inugami, the first step of taming a Dog God. Often, descendants inherited their parents innate ability to call upon these Dog Gods. But taming must evolve from within. To tame an Inugami, is a difficult process. Also dangerous, as Inugami are often spirits who have been betrayed. The process begins after accomplishing a basic summoning. Two weak Inugami spirits answering their call. To tame an Inugami, one has to channel their own bestial spirit. Matching the spirits frequency with theirs. Dan compares it as a mutual understands.

Sealed

After Senken had been sealed inside Dan, his family asked Yatsufusa to send Dan into Oofuru forest to further his mastery....

Among few who fully can summon, tame and manipulate Inugami, Dan has achieved a high level of success.

  • Inugami Style: Spirit Possession Technique:
  • Inugami Style: Blessed Healing Technique:
  • [[Inugami Style: Hungry Dogs Pack Hunt: After performing its necessary seals, Dan makes contact with his target. Through it, Dan summons six hundred and sixty six Inugami spirits into a persons body. Small, dark hellish spirits raving about within. A hunting ground of sorts. All rapidly consumes their host's soul. Dan describes this technique similar to opening a pathway from Oofuru forest. Using his body as a bridge, he lures his rapid Inugami directly into their nesting ground. When used on Jinchuuriki, starts to literally consume the tailed beast..If completed, both beings are killed....For spiritual creatures outside of physical containment, Dan is able to release his hunting dogs through his sleeves as they hunt their target...
  • Inugami Style: Call of the Grand Guardian: When Dan activates this technique, a portal of seals appear behind him. From it, the grand guardian of Inugami emerges. A chain is then wrapped from his Inugami guardian onto Dan's entire arm and a portion of his chest similar to how his Soul Leash attaches to his phantom hound. It is connected to him through this leash. A creature that shares Dan's bestial consciousness. Because of this intimate connection, The Inugami guardian will often attempt to take control. But with all dogs, Dan must tame it. Show it he is the master. Throughout his years, Dan boasted that he has fully tamed his Inugami summons through an understanding brought about by his soul leash.

    The Inugami Guardian is an incredibly large dragon-like dog. An Inugami of immense energy and unfathomable power. It is to Inugami what Tiangou had been for dogs. This god matches up to tailed beast in terms of size and physical ability, capable of wrapping around full sized Bijuu multiple times before biting into them. It towers over villages and dwarfs Kage manors. The hound possesses an unmatched sense of smell and hearing. So through its shared conscious, it can sniff out its designated targets. Dan also shares it's senses. So he is able to experience what it does, making for a powerful scouting tool. A monster of speed, his Inugami enjoys a chase. And through feeding it his chakra, Dan's summon will expand indefinitely. Stretching and twisting in unbelievable directions.The Guardian of Inugami is a great deity who protects Oofuru Forest. A god that matches bijū. It's physical attributes enough to hold a released Kurama at bay, even wrapping around its massive body and suppressing it. Causing the tailed beast to succumb to Dan's might. Being a creature whose composition also allows it to perform devastating blast of pure chakra. The Inugami possesses a roar that can dispel powerful ninjutsu as well as cause catastrophic damage. Its body is strong enough to repel incredibly high ranked jutsu, protecting Dan from a Bijudama's resulting explosion. Dan used this technique against Orochimaru's Eight Branches Technique. After their catastrophic battle, his Inugami managed to overpower his eight headed dragon opponent. The Inugami maintains a connection into the Oofuru Forest. Those consume are sent there, and immediately transformed into Inugami after seemingly endless torture.

    Calling upon the Inugami Guardian has a huge risk. Through the now established spiritual connection, it will attempt to take over Dan's own spirit. During his first usage, Senken had reacted violently, cutting Dan's own soul leash. Dan eventually acquired nigh mastery of his guardian calling, allowing him to use it for an impressive amount of time by controlling his emotions. But a strong enough disruption, especially by rage results in him losing control and his Inugami becoming feral. During these episodes, his behavior is monstrous. He loses his ability to tell friend from foe. He views all as targets for as prey. He becomes a true beast. As his Inugami Guardian uses his body to carry out its every desire.

    Upon Dan's defeat at his Cousin's hands, it is revealed that this technique possesses a higher form. Summoning one's guardian Inugami as a full form beast is dangerous. It is wild and uncontrolled. However, members of the Eight Household can stabilize their Inugami into a humanized form. To grant an Inugami a Humanized form is called Perfect Synchronization (,). It is channeling one's physical energy through their Soul Leash and bringing forth their Inugami's human form through imagination. In perfect Synchronization, This beast possesses blinding speed, unrivaled strength alongside monstrous obedience. It also obtains a unique power. Dan achieved perfect synchronization after his cousin's first victory.

    Dan's Perfect Synchronization turns his Inugami into that of a teenage female. Konmei noted a striking resemblance to Chosho when he first saw its usage. Dan's Inugami not only receives an unimaginable boost in her physical attributes, she is now able to create smaller dog-like claws for usage. Turning her into a Taijutsu monster. She can launch incredible taijutsu combo's, attack from multiple directions as well as defend simultaneously.
  • Inugami Style: Silent Moon Killing: It is a technique performed through absolute trickery. A false Genjutsu, an untrue illusion to its core. Lord Inuzuka describes it as a cross between a howling dog and a dog whistle that no human can hear. Dan begins by summoning a single or group of Inugami, depending on his targets number. Unlike other Inugami, these unique spirits are invisible to the naked eye. Even those who possess special eyes are only able to perceive masses of spiritual energy rather than an actual shape. Also, through a medium Dan can hide their presence in a weapon. Which transfers his spiritual servants upon contact.

    After his Inugami enter his opponents body, their body reacts to the moon's presence in the sky. At night, a massive ringing is emitted within his targets mind. A deafening sound. One that resembles an unbelievably loud dog whistle. Hence it's previous description as none except those possessed will hear it. Upon hearing it, his targets lose their sense of sound. Everything is overwhelmed by this incredibly loud ringing. It slowly drives them mad. So loud, but impossible to go deaf since it's not an actual sound. Torture.

    The Inugami are known to speak through their ringing, slowly pushing their possessed enemy into madness. Causing them to kill their allies, loved ones and even themselves.

    Because this is not an actual Genjutsu, the only method of removal involves spirit evicting techniques.
  • Inugami Style: Sacred Elemental Inheritance

Sarameya Art: The Master of Hell Hounds

Hellsing.600.1312410

Dan's hell hounds often possess multiple eyes or crimson fur.

Once Dan fused with Sarama's energy, Dan's mastery over dog based techniques reached new frontiers. An ancient spirit who was said to be the Mother of All Dogs. The Bitch God. A being possessing immeasurable chakra who gave birth to Yama's own guardians and servants. She had existed during the time of Indra and Asura. Helping Indra battle against his brother. She grew to great strengths, almost defeating The Sage's youngest child. However, as all great warriors do, Sarama died. But was unable to enter the next realm as well as reincarnate. Sarama continued to exist upon the Hill of Dogs. This was due to Yama's dogs. The King of Death's guard dogs, his servants were unable to retrieve their own mother. Instead, they obeyed her. Sarama gained unrivaled control of hellhounds while remaining tied to the Hill of Dogs. Granting her absolute mastery over both living and dead hounds. When Dan awoken his sage mode, he managed to sense her presence. A feeling that he'd been missing something all his life. Being the first Dog Sage to do so. Understanding his purpose, Dan chose to merge. Becoming one. A master to all hounds, their own father. Completing his own trinity. A plethora of techniques which involved summoning hellhounds to obey his will opened to him. Even becoming a physical medium for their power. Granting him access to nigh miracles. Sarameya Arts gifts a mastery over the path of life and death. Dan can even traverse between dimensions such as Naraka and Heaven. Access other realms, and battle against spiritual creatures conjured by powerful warriors. Dan is one who has a mastery over both Inugami and Hell Hounds.

Hellhound by leegoist-d5jn2if

Hellhounds are invisible to the human eye. They travel through a portal comprised entirely of darkness. A direct link to hell. And upon materialization, appear as a continuously shifting mist of pure black. However, they retain the ability of interacting with this realm.. Hellhounds can be called invulnerable. For those who can actually see and sense their presence, only specific offensive methods work against these fierce beast. As guardians of death, Hell hounds can cause all sorts of dark aftermaths. Every dead hell hound puffs into black smoke before creating two in its place. Meaning Dan has a potentially limitless army at his whim. Hell hounds are master trackers. Their super senses, allows them experience existence on an incredibly keener level. It is said once Dan locks onto his target, his hell hounds will track them to the ends of earth and beyond. Following through dimensions. Retrieving spirits, souls and sufferers from all Naraka's levels. Allowing Dan to perform complex reanimation as long as their is a source. Because they reside on multiple realms, Hell hounds can perceive invisible targets that exist on a specific realm they share. They can even sense clones. As with all hounds, Hell hounds move using incredible speed. Able to easily intercept kunai, instantly appear where it is needed, while outrunning any target. Hiding nor running becomes an option. They combine such speed with incredible maneuverability. Agility levels that grant complex actions. Dan's hellhounds are also unimaginably strength. Very little defenses hold against them. Allowing for impeccable defense or offence. Sometimes both simultaneously. In rare cases that Dan must materialize his beast, they can manifest a smokey body. Seemingly whispering an aura of darkness.

22dd

Perhaps Dan's strongest attribute is his ability to create, manipulate and coat his body in Flames of Suffering. The fires of Naraka that burn spiritually. These flames are the purple flickering flames that surround Yama upon his summoning. Manipulating these fires, Dan is capable of burning his enemies soul directly. Causing extensive, immense and horrific pain to those it touches. Unable to actually use shape transformation, Dan's unholy fire is strongest when used in conjunction with his actual body. Creating an incredibly dangerous taijutsu combination used against godly eyes. Because of their composition and spirit burning properties, they are strongest against spiritually based techniques and creatures.

Jnffd

Dan, at base, can summon three to four Hell hounds without seals. These hell hounds are often used for trivial matters. Such as protection or to dispatch weak enemies. Stronger techniques involve hand seals and tremendous concentration. Dan's famous for summoning his hounds through snapping or whistling. Causing any whistling noises to be feared throughout.

Another incredible combination is between Dan's Strength of a Hundred Seal and his hellhounds. Similar to Dan's Inugami, his seal can circulate chakra through his hounds. Leading to thousands being supported by his chakra. Allowing them to continuously rebirth, split or perform devastating attacks. More to Come

Physical Prowess

Sheer Spee

Dan's natural speed allowing him to deflect hundreds of Kunai's.

Hailed as Konoha's Dog Demon, at base level, Dan's strength and speed levels are absolutely tremendous. Through years of intense weight training and Ninjutsu enhancements, his body's base reached an incredible plateau. Capable of matching the fastest of Shinobi, Dan becomes untraceable even by eyes blessed with hatred. Normally, without enhancements, Dan's speed has been recorded as monstrous. Able to keep up with his former sensei, Rock Lee. After mastering the Inuzuka Clan and Inu Tribe enhancement techniques, as well as developing his own, Dan becomes nothing more than a blur. An afterthought before an enemies death. During an ambush in which hundreds of Kunai had been thrown, Dan spun with his blade drawn and deflected each and every. Only retaining a single scratch upon his cheek. Dan's usage of body flicker has resulted in him shredding opponents before they realize he'd made a movement. Combined with Dan's Body Replacement Technique, one has no true idea if they have actually landed a blow against Lord Inuzuka.

Alongside Dan's incredible speed, he also sports horrifying strength...

Supporting Dan's physical attributes, he is incredible durable...

Shurikenjutsu

Dan has an extensive knowledge of Shurikenjutsu. Using his sheer speed, Dan is able to throw shuriken at incredible power. His drawing level makes it appear as if shurikens appeared from thin air. Many times his throws are unseen, only a shuriken covered body falling. Dan has matched up to an Uchiha in Shuriken throwing. Dan's skill with Shuriken allows him to literally curve a blade while throwing. Giving him an unseen amount of versatility. He deflects shurikens off of one another to strike his intended targets. Sometimes using his enemies own throwing weapons for his purposes. A majority of his throws aim at a smaller target for a entirely different purpose than he thought.

  1. REDIRECT Insert text===Medical Ninjutsu===

Despite not being a committed medical ninja, Dan was taught intense and extensive medical ninjutsu by Sakura after he repeatedly begged her. After his chuunin exams, Dan wished for enough strength to truly help his loved ones. It had happened before Senken's death, when Dan feared using Tsuyunoinochi after witnessing it consume a Genin during the exams. He wanted a different method of protecting his friends. After realizing Dan's potential in chakra control, Sakura asked Kiba if she could take him on as a student. Believing him able to surpass most medical ninja of that time. Which Kiba accepted happily. She taught him basic usages such as Chakra Scalpel and Mystical Palm Technique. Dan spent a major amount of time understanding both properties. Being able to heal wounds of his allies in a matter of seconds. His most impressive feat however came from personalizing the chakra scalpel. Creating his infamous Mini Chakra Scalpel technique. Adopting it to his bestial theme, Dan used careful chakra control to surround his fingers into chakra scalpels. These blades appeared as claws, but retained the Chakra Scalpel's legendary finesse. He was able to perform complex operations due to their size. Carefully cutting specific arteries, creating pinpoint flawless incisions, and overall boosting his accuracy. Surgeries became quick processes. And due to their appearance as claws, they retained a level of deadliness. Allowing him to easily cut through almost all defenses. Dan's level of control during his mystical palm usage was also impressive. Healing all sorts of wounds even those that brought his allies to near death. Lord Inuzuka even figured how to heal a person form a distance, similar to transmission without using a seal. Dan's mystical palm usage could even stop a person by forcing their body into a comatose. Ranging from weaponry to actual techniques, Dan's healing prowess became significant. He's closed gaping holes, recreated flesh and purified an enemies wound to assure infection would not happen. His brothers fought alongside recklessly knowing that Dan was able to heal them both. Dan has brought men and women alike back from death with intricate knowledge of both thousands of wounds and how their body works.

  • Dan's arm regenerating after suffering from a heavy fire explosion.
  • Dan's arm back to normal while wielding Murasame.

During his final years within Konohagakure, Dan's name had grew exponentially. Shinobi from all over knew of Konohagakure's legendary Daiyōkai. The Demon Warlord of the Fang. Very few could rival his might. And Konohagakure thought Dan would rise to take Naruto's position. But Dan personally felt that he lacked the ability to truly heal his loved ones. Although Tsuyunoinochi had a dark resurrection power, Lord Inuzuka wished not to rely on an Inugami as a clutch. And watching loved one's died caused him pain, even if he could heal them. So before his departure, expecting only a mission, Dan asked his sensei Sakura for further enhancements. Despite healing hundreds of allies, and saving people who have suffered dearly, his mystical palm technique could not save Senken. And resulted in Konmei receiving heavy wounds which Dan was luckily able to save him from. During his battle against Muzai, Dan watched as his allies died one by one. Through tears Dan begging caused her to bestow upon him two massive scrolls. For she had thought this mission would last a specific amount of time, Sakura figured he'd have enough time to train during breaks. She decided that if he truly wanted to protect his loved one's, Dan would master this technique without having someone holding his hand. Dan happily accepted. When he was not helping the settlement or defending it, Dan would sneak off and study the scroll. Sakura had already noted that Dan possessed the chakra controlling ability of high caliber medical ninja. Believing him to be able to accomplish this task, Sakura left him two massive scrolls. Instructing him to burn both after his learning. An incredible instruction manual of sorts. When Dan arrived on the then not established Land of Fang, he spent a majority of time studying and training.

Strength of a hundred

Dan's strength of a hundred seal appears as a purple crescent moon.

The first scroll taught him how to form a Strength of a Hundred Seal. The pinnacle of chakra control that only masters could achieve. Although difficult, Dan managed to comprehend the concept. It took him three years of storing chakra, using his forehead as the focal point. Dan created the signature rhombus at 19. However, he despised the purple mark as it interrupted his own facial markings. So through careful concentration, Dan managed to craft his own variation of the marking. A purple crescent moon that graces his forehead. For years, Dan managed to subconsciously allocate chakra into that one spot. While being able to fight at near full power. Proving his potential might, achieving something only two others could. The fact Dan was able to manipulate its appearance utterly shocked Sakura, who constantly wondered its true power. This was of course due to Dan's Heart of the Wild Beast. His wild spiritual energy influencing this seal. This seal allowed Dan to use techniques without wasting his own chakra. And after activating it, Dan could reform the seal. The chakra stored inside Dan's marking is so enormous that upon releasing, those who are surrounding him feel as if an immense forest sprouts. A sea of trees emerging from beneath the earth. Creating hundreds if not thousands of wild dogs. Dan summons the wild to his call. He is able to instantly heal from Amaterasu's burning rage, going as far as completely regrowing limbs. As well as performing energy taxing techniques without fatigue. During Dan's various transformations, his seal remains on his forehead. Lord Inuzuka is capable of releasing his seal in his techniques, which naturally amplify his forms abilities unimaginably. In dire situations, Dan's second scroll taught him its purpose. Dan managed to create multiple branches that use this seal's released chakra. Techniques that only he are capable of utilizing such as his Reverse Dog Years. Dan's seal creates a reservoir of chakra for him to access.

Iy sesshomaru078

After releasing his natural energy seal, Dan's facial markings revert back to purple and his eyes redden.

Dan combined his Strength of a Hundred Seal with his senjutsu usage. Creating a secondary seal upon his face. This seal takes the form of Inuzuka tribal marking. Matching Dan's purple crescent marking on his forehead, four purple tribal markings appear on his face. The focal points where his senjutsu chakra is stored. For extended periods of time, Dan spends countless hours storing Senjutsu Chakra into those markings. Dan's Seal of a Thousand Trees grants him an instant sage mode upon activation. Removing it's motion drawback. After every Senjutsu usage, in which Dan utilizes his backup reservoir of senjutsu chakra, Dan spends time in his hunting stance, gathering more senjutsu chakra and storing it in a secondary seal for future usage. Causing his red markings to become purple once more. Because Dan spends nights continuously storing senjutsu chakra into his seal, Lord Inuzuka often contains a naturally immense reservoir that he could access at any moment. One that rivals his own backup reserves. Dan describes this as having an ocean connected to two massive seas with gates that block their merging until he releases both seals. When releasing one seal, Dan's chakra gains an incredible boost. Being able to match up to a full power Nine Tails. However, upon releasing all three, Dan gains a power that granted him a title of Sage of the Illuminating Fang (牙照の仙人,Kibaterasu no Sennin).

Those around him comment that it feels like they are standing within a massive forest. That everywhere they go, they are still in its center. They began to hallucinate. Seeing trees sprout from their surroundings. Even in places without soil, in deserts and in frozen tundras, trees appear. Hence the seal's name. A kingdom of wild dogs barking. Thousands of imaginary packs hunting. All Dan. He is able to exist through any of these wild dogs, something that his monstrous senses are shown through. Thousands upon thousands off wild hounds. Each one an extension of Dan. Giving him an omnipresent aura. Their five senses fall under Dan's control. They experience the wild that their ancestors once lived. Cities such as Amegakure become massive dense forest. Everything they experience just as real as they are. It is a release that can change the entire battlefield into a hallucinatory forest, only seen through by those who can utilize senjutsu masterfully. In this form, Dan's power becomes phenomenal.

Dan established a direct link between his strength of a hundred seal and his summoned Inugami. Dan is able to transfer his chakra through his Inugami. By bestowing his own chakra through Inugami, these angry spirits are given extraordinary power boost and properties. And after possessing a person, purposes used by Dan during his Strength of a Hundred Seal activation is transmitted into the possessed body. Dan can remotely heal thousands of Shinobi at once after summoning a mass amount of Inugami, protecting his village from harm. Dan has brought back hundreds from death through his incredible healing prowess. And as long as his Inugami possess a body, Dan can remotely grant a form of immortality similar to his own. In a way that Dan will continuously rapidly healing all wounds. From limbs to organs, to major wounds to minor scratches, Lord Inuzuka's seal allows him to heal it. Dan's transmission range is absolutely incredible. Dan can cast his healing techniques and other transmission techniques across country borders. Allowing him to offer support immense distances away. Alongside his Tei Bead, Dan can reach a target no matter where they go. For this, Konmei is able to heal from anywhere on the planet, as long as Dan is alive. Because of Dan's impressive chakra manipulation abilities, Dan is able to heal or cast transmission techniques through his Inugami and strength of a hundred seal while fighting at full power himself. During a battle against an army of bandits, Dan healed an entire squadron while fighting through activating his seal partially. The squad haven been brought back to base already. They remarked at how far Dan's love reached them. Dan can also transmit other things through his chakra. He can cast techniques that enhance a person's bestial strength, once granting Four Legs Technique to an ANBU. An infamous usage unseen before is Dan's ability to bestow instant sage mode into allies. Upon casting an Inugami into one's body, when Dan releases his Strength of a Thousand Tree's, Dan's senjutsu chakra is also transferred. However, if a person cannot handle natural energy, they will end up transforming into a wild beast. Through this connection, Dan is able to communicate and experience everything they do. Meaning he gains a wider presence among their possession. Beyond healing, Dan can protect a considerable amount of his allies. Overall enhancing his military in battles by fighting alongside them. Being the Jinchūriki, Dan only gains a boost in spiritual power, but is granted multiple side abilities as well. Through controlled transformations, Dan can boost the chakra levels of those his Inugami possess. As well as grant them abilities only granted through an Inugami. This includes flight, powerful barks and even the power to banish weaker Shinigami.

Dan learned how to release his stored chakra, forming bestial marks around his own face. His release command will disperse the seal and allow the stored chakra to pump back into his own body. Granting him access to Creation Rebirth as well as other stored techniques. This blesses Dan with the ability to not only call help from surrounding animals, but to naturally heal without hand seals. In this form, Dan gains a form of nigh immortality. Damage that are near fatal are reduced to nothingness in mere seconds. This allows Dan to fight recklessly without worrying. Giving into his true bestial nature.

Dan's full release is through his Strength of a Hundred Technique. The markings cover not only his face, but extend well pass his body. Creating an impressive, intricate design. His tribal markings also become purple to match the crescent moon on his forehead. During a non senjutsu activation, Dan's physical strength is increased exponentially. Dan also gains an immensely enhanced regeneration that appears instantly. Able to come back from death in a matter of seconds without seals, Dan can continuously fight. Limbs, organs, anything upon his body is remade to perfection. Needing not to worry for himself no longer. Battling entire armies for days. Also, this ability can combine with his other transformations. Granting him higher levels of offensive and supplementary capabilities.

Medical Ninjutsu

Despite not being a committed medical ninja, Dan was taught intense and extensive medical ninjutsu by Sakura after he repeatedly begged her. After his chuunin exams, Dan wished for enough strength to truly help his loved ones. It had happened before Senken's death, when Dan feared using Tsuyunoinochi after witnessing it consume a Genin during the exams. He wanted a different method of protecting his friends. After realizing Dan's potential in chakra control, Sakura asked Kiba if she could take him on as a student. Believing him able to surpass most medical ninja of that time. Which Kiba accepted happily. She taught him basic usages such as Chakra Scalpel and Mystical Palm Technique. Dan spent a major amount of time understanding both properties. Being able to heal wounds of his allies in a matter of seconds. His most impressive feat however came from personalizing the chakra scalpel. Creating his infamous Mini Chakra Scalpel technique. Adopting it to his bestial theme, Dan used careful chakra control to surround his fingers into chakra scalpels. These blades appeared as claws, but retained the Chakra Scalpel's legendary finesse. He was able to perform complex operations due to their size. Carefully cutting specific arteries, creating pinpoint flawless incisions, and overall boosting his accuracy. Surgeries became quick processes. And due to their appearance as claws, they retained a level of deadliness. Allowing him to easily cut through almost all defenses. Dan's level of control during his mystical palm usage was also impressive. Healing all sorts of wounds even those that brought his allies to near death. Lord Inuzuka even figured how to heal a person form a distance, similar to transmission without using a seal. Dan's mystical palm usage could even stop a person by forcing their body into a comatose. Ranging from weaponry to actual techniques, Dan's healing prowess became significant. He's closed gaping holes, recreated flesh and purified an enemies wound to assure infection would not happen. His brothers fought alongside recklessly knowing that Dan was able to heal them both. Dan has brought men and women alike back from death with intricate knowledge of both thousands of wounds and how their body works.

  • Dan's arm regenerating after suffering from a heavy fire explosion.
  • Dan's arm back to normal while wielding Murasame.

During his final years within Konohagakure, Dan's name had grew exponentially. Shinobi from all over knew of Konohagakure's legendary Daiyōkai. The Demon Warlord of the Fang. Very few could rival his might. And Konohagakure thought Dan would rise to take Naruto's position. But Dan personally felt that he lacked the ability to truly heal his loved ones. Although Tsuyunoinochi had a dark resurrection power, Lord Inuzuka wished not to rely on an Inugami as a clutch. And watching loved one's died caused him pain, even if he could heal them. So before his departure, expecting only a mission, Dan asked his sensei Sakura for further enhancements. Despite healing hundreds of allies, and saving people who have suffered dearly, his mystical palm technique could not save Senken. And resulted in Konmei receiving heavy wounds which Dan was luckily able to save him from. During his battle against Muzai, Dan watched as his allies died one by one. Through tears Dan begging caused her to bestow upon him two massive scrolls. For she had thought this mission would last a specific amount of time, Sakura figured he'd have enough time to train during breaks. She decided that if he truly wanted to protect his loved one's, Dan would master this technique without having someone holding his hand. Dan happily accepted. When he was not helping the settlement or defending it, Dan would sneak off and study the scroll. Sakura had already noted that Dan possessed the chakra controlling ability of high caliber medical ninja. Believing him to be able to accomplish this task, Sakura left him two massive scrolls. Instructing him to burn both after his learning. An incredible instruction manual of sorts. When Dan arrived on the then not established Land of Fang, he spent a majority of time studying and training.

Strength of a hundred

Dan's strength of a hundred seal appears as a purple crescent moon.

The first scroll taught him how to form a Strength of a Hundred Seal. The pinnacle of chakra control that only masters could achieve. Although difficult, Dan managed to comprehend the concept. It took him three years of storing chakra, using his forehead as the focal point. Dan created the signature rhombus at 19. However, he despised the purple mark as it interrupted his own facial markings. So through careful concentration, Dan managed to craft his own variation of the marking. A purple crescent moon that graces his forehead. For years, Dan managed to subconsciously allocate chakra into that one spot. While being able to fight at near full power. Proving his potential might, achieving something only two others could. The fact Dan was able to manipulate its appearance utterly shocked Sakura, who constantly wondered its true power. This was of course due to Dan's Heart of the Wild Beast. His wild spiritual energy influencing this seal. This seal allowed Dan to use techniques without wasting his own chakra. Casing devastating techniques while possessing extraordinary reserves. And after activating it, Dan could reform the seal. The chakra stored inside Dan's marking is so enormous that upon releasing, those who are surrounding him feel as if an immense forest sprouts. A sea of trees emerging from beneath the earth spreading around and submerging an entire village. Creating hundreds if not thousands of wild dogs. Dan summons the wild to his call. He is able to instantly heal from Amaterasu's burning rage, going as far as completely regrowing limbs. As well as performing energy taxing techniques without fatigue. During Dan's various transformations, his seal remains on his forehead. Lord Inuzuka is capable of releasing his seal in his techniques, which naturally amplify his forms abilities unimaginably. In dire situations, Dan's second scroll taught him its purpose. Dan managed to create multiple branches that use this seal's released chakra. Techniques that only he are capable of utilizing such as his Reverse Dog Years. Dan's seal creates a reservoir of chakra for him to access.

After releasing his natural energy seal, Dan's facial markings revert back to purple and his eyes redden.

Dan combined his Strength of a Hundred Seal with his senjutsu usage. Creating a secondary seal upon his face. This seal takes the form of Inuzuka tribal marking. Matching Dan's purple crescent marking on his forehead, four purple tribal markings appear on his face. The focal points where his senjutsu chakra is stored. For extended periods of time, Dan spends countless hours storing Senjutsu Chakra into those markings. Dan's Seal of a Thousand Trees grants him an instant sage mode upon activation. Removing it's motion drawback. After every Senjutsu usage, in which Dan utilizes his backup reservoir of senjutsu chakra, Dan spends time in his hunting stance, gathering more senjutsu chakra and storing it in a secondary seal for future usage. Causing his red markings to become purple once more. Because Dan spends nights continuously storing senjutsu chakra into his seal, Lord Inuzuka often contains a naturally immense reservoir that he could access at any moment. One that rivals his own backup reserves. Dan describes this as having an ocean connected to two massive seas with gates that block their merging until he releases both seals. When releasing one seal, Dan's chakra gains an incredible boost. Being able to match up to a full power Nine Tails. However, upon releasing all three, Dan gains a power that granted him a title of Sage of the Illuminating Fang (牙照の仙人,Kibaterasu no Sennin).

Those around him comment that it feels like they are standing within a massive forest. That everywhere they go, they are still in its center. They began to hallucinate. Seeing trees sprout from their surroundings. Even in places without soil, in deserts and in frozen tundras, trees appear. Hence the seal's name. A kingdom of wild dogs barking. Thousands of imaginary packs hunting. All Dan. He is able to exist through any of these wild dogs, something that his monstrous senses are shown through. Thousands upon thousands off wild hounds. Each one an extension of Dan. Giving him an omnipresent aura. Their five senses fall under Dan's control. They experience the wild that their ancestors once lived. Cities such as Amegakure become massive dense forest. Everything they experience just as real as they are. It is a release that can change the entire battlefield into a hallucinatory forest, only seen through by those who can utilize senjutsu masterfully. In this form, Dan's power becomes phenomenal.

Dan established a direct link between his strength of a hundred seal and his summoned Inugami. Dan is able to transfer his chakra through his Inugami. By bestowing his own chakra through Inugami, these angry spirits are given extraordinary power boost and properties. And after possessing a person, purposes used by Dan during his Strength of a Hundred Seal activation is transmitted into the possessed body. Dan can remotely heal thousands of Shinobi at once after summoning a mass amount of Inugami, protecting his village from harm. Dan has brought back hundreds from death through his incredible healing prowess. And as long as his Inugami possess a body, Dan can remotely grant a form of immortality similar to his own. In a way that Dan will continuously rapidly healing all wounds. From limbs to organs, to major wounds to minor scratches, Lord Inuzuka's seal allows him to heal it. Dan's transmission range is absolutely incredible. Dan can cast his healing techniques and other transmission techniques across country borders. Allowing him to offer support immense distances away. Alongside his Tei Bead, Dan can reach a target no matter where they go. For this, Konmei is able to heal from anywhere on the planet, as long as Dan is alive. Because of Dan's impressive chakra manipulation abilities, Dan is able to heal or cast transmission techniques through his Inugami and strength of a hundred seal while fighting at full power himself. During a battle against an army of bandits, Dan healed an entire squadron while fighting through activating his seal partially. The squad haven been brought back to base already. They remarked at how far Dan's love reached them. Dan can also transmit other things through his chakra. He can cast techniques that enhance a person's bestial strength, once granting Four Legs Technique to an ANBU. An infamous usage unseen before is Dan's ability to bestow instant sage mode into allies. Upon casting an Inugami into one's body, when Dan releases his Strength of a Thousand Tree's, Dan's senjutsu chakra is also transferred.

Concepts and Influences

Dan Inuzuka is one of my older characters, actually being created YEARS before I joined this site. He holds one of my defining traits as an author, one that I have possessed for over five years. His name, although taken from the Naruto series, is derived from my own. Six years as an author, most of my main characters have been either named after myself, or possess some form of it. After Dan Katō's appearance, I was given the golden opportunity to name most of my main Naruto characters (And a few other Japanese based characters) Dan. Dan is a connection between author and creation. It allows me to feed my own personality, my own being into this creation. Thus breathing life into it. As an older character, his base work was a simple copy paste from a bank of old characters I still have access too. Among hundreds of different character types, I absolutely loved the werewolf design. A hand to hand, physical demon who had control over dogs. Dan is the epitome of an absolute love I held for animals.

He represents my perfectly. My love for family, how I enjoy late night early early mornings, my strange love for the color white and silver. Everything. From personality to interest, Dan is the author written into his story. Even his best friend Kazuma represents the authors own struggles between juggling friendships and personal goals...

He also plays off my supposed Hipsterism. My friends note that I constantly avoid anything popular. From music to interest, If it is something liked by a large consensus, I probably will ignore it. Hence the fact I never watched Breaking Bad or How I met Your mother. Even Big Bang Theory. The last popular series I've shown interest in was Game of Thrones. Only because I watched it on the low, and very few people I know actually keep up with it. How does this play into Inuzuka? Well, no one likes the Inuzuka clan. Rarely do you see someone make an Inuzuka their main focus (Similar to Muzai's story, and Koshiro's creation.). Quite frankly, the Inuzuka clan has been straight ignored for the past nearly ten years. While some might find it impossible to write for such an ignored clan, I hit a true gold mine. Clan's and abilities that have little to no back story, enhancements or purpose besides main character support are easier for me to use. I am given a blank world, some paint, and a brush. As it's explained further downwards, Kishimoto brilliantly morphed the Inuzuka Clan in such a way that they possess so much potential. The Japanese Epic, in which Inuzuka comes from, is one of the most famous to date. There are hundreds of manga which drawn from it. And through extensive research, I drew inspiration from it, and applied it.

I grew up with a love for Sesshoumaru. So him as a character source was no doubt. And having such a wide known character meant thousands of usable pictures...

His choice of music comes from my own love of underground hip hop and jazz. And my absolute undying love of Nujabes (RIP). One of the greatest contributors to music since ever. It was only fitting that my favorite character have my favorite artist's music. This album is Metaphorical Music.

As mentioned before, Dan draws inspiration from two main myths. The [n.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nansou_Satomi_Hakkenden Nansou Satomi Hakkenden] and the story of Inugami. Both which I find extremely entertaining. The Nounsou has been used in series such as Okami, Akame ga Kiru, Naruto, Getsurin, and much more. And through careful understanding of each, plus real world reading, I was able to shape the Inuzuka Clan further. Giving it both back story and applying hidden potential.
