"This chakra belongs to me, now. I gave it shape. I gave it form. I made it what it is; power."
Takeru Uchiha is a shinobi of the Uchiha clan and is the brother of Kakuzu Uchiha. Takeru leaves the clan along with his brother in order to obtain the power of the Sage of Six Paths. In the process he becomes the second Psuedo-Jinchuriki of the Shinju.
Takeru was born at an unknown point during the Warring states period. His father was killed in a battle with the Senju clan when he was two years old and his brother, Kakuzu, was six years old. Becaus he didn't know his father as well as his brother, he didn't develop as strong a hatred for the Senju.
AppearanceTakeru has short, spiky black hair that goes down to his neck. He typically wears black and white robes and a red strap across his chest. When using the Shinju's power, his hair's length increases down to to his waist and becomes pale white. His skin also turns pale white and wears a white robe and a black mask made of bone with two horns and white stripes. Underneath the mask, he has the Rinne Sharingan with only six tomoe.
As an old man, Takeru wears a long black robe with white trimming around the collar. His hair has grown slightly longer and he wears brown sunglasses.
Takeru is calm and serious, but barely displays any emotion at all. He cares deeply for the protection of his clan and wants nothing more than to see it prosper. He does not particularly care for the constant wars, and doesn't hate the Senju clan nearly as much as his brother does. Instead, he hones his skills to fight solely for the preservation of the Uchiha clan. He values human life and deep down would want nothing more than to see the war come to a complete stop. He doesn't like giving it his all in a fight but ironically, he uses his strongest attacks first to end the fight as quickly as possible.
As a reaction to the ten-tails power, Takeru develops a split personality during his transformed state that is quite the opposite of the original. He becomes arrogant, disrespectful and brutal. He also frequently displays bits of sadistic tendencies. In this state, he talks a lot, but never gets distracted from the battle. The new personality also displays a love for the act of murder.
Takeru is well known for his skill and speed in battle, and his powerful intellect. Unfortunately, his intellect is wasted due to his personality, he falls short at making important decisions both on and off the battlefield and can often be described as clumsy. He only rarely goes all-out with opponents he deems are strong enough to hold their own.
ChakraFrom an early age, he has had abnormally large reserves of chakra, and can fight for up to 23 hours without tiring himself out. He can preform very complex jutsu with extreme ease and is able to use Mangekyō Sharingan without much strain on his eyes. upon awakening the Rinnegan, his chakra levels skyrocket to levels beyond belief, comparable only to his brother's. He can also absorb Kekkei Genkai as well as chakra, which aided him in obtaining the ten-tails power.
As an adept Sensor-type, Takeru posesses the ability to judge his opponents strength by sight alone. He can detect chakra natures and signatures from great distances and can recognize the exact wielder of said chakra. His sensory abilities, however, aren't always spot-on, and due to his personality, often underestimates his opponents' strength.
Takeru is highly skilled in taijutsu and can move at very high speeds. Although he is very skilled, he would rather not use taijutsu because he fears it will lengthen the time he has to fight. He rarely uses taijutsu but occasionaly will if the battle exceeds twenty minutes.
Takeru prefers to fight using ninjutsu and usually fights with his strongest techniques first to end the battle as quickly as possible. This, of course, all depends on his mood and however strong he deems his opponent.
BukijustsuTakeru can use an extensive range of weapons and has extreme proficiency with all of them. His trademark weapon is a sword with which he can redirect attacks, or use to channel his own chakra or nature transromations. His sword is sharper than most and is even rumored to cut through space itself.As an old man, he also displays the ability to create weapons made of chakra.
Takeru has an affinity for blaze release, a simultaneous mixture of Fire and Lightning release. He is even said to be able to create various weapons out of the black flames of Amaterasu, but is only seen wielding a sword. In the process of learning how to access the ten-tails power, he learned to use the other nature types, including Hashirama Senju's legendary Wood Release.
Takeru awakened his Sharingan at the age of three, when he was finally told of his father's death. Initially, each eye possessed only one tomoe, but as he grew up, his Sharingan matured and fully developed at the age of fifteen. With his Sharingan and sensory abilities, he can see and differentiate nearly every chakra signature within a 5,000 mile radius.With his Sharingan, he can use various genjustu so vivid, no one would be able to differentiate between reality and genjutsu once caught.
Mangekyō SharinganTakeru's Mangekyō Sharingan awakened three months after his Sharingan fully developed. It takes the shape of a inward spiral that flows into a circle surrounding the pupil.He rarely uses the Mangekyō Sharingan except against the strongest of opponents, except for his brother whom he believes is an even match for him. While his eyesight never fully deteriorated, he still felt the need to preserve his eyes and eventually awakened the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan, which takes the appearance of his original with another spiral going inward to the pupil.
While learning the ten-tails secrets, Takeru and his brother managed to awaken the Rinnegan. He can easily switch between Mangekyō Sharingan and Rinnegan at will. With the Rinnegan, Takeru can freely use the Six Paths Technique and all of its derived techniques. Even with the Rinnegan active, he can still use his Susanoo.After gaining the power of the Ten-Tails, he gains a Rinne Sharingan atop his head, much like Kaguya Ōtsutsuki and Madara. Unlike his dual Rinnegan, the new eye is red , and unlike Madara's and Kaguya's, it only has six tomoe.
Jinchūriki TransformationsTakeru absorbed some of the ten-tails chakra residue from the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path and eventually gained the ability to utilize its power. However, he is only in partial control due to a split-personality that manifested upon awakening his new abilities.
With the power of the ten-tails, he becomes far faster than he was before and possesses regenerative powers that can even withstand getting a portion of his head destroyed. He also now possesses the ability to fly and use the ten-tails nature energy to preform senjustu-based techniques. Instead of having Truth-Seeking Balls like his brother, he possesses a single white sword with similar properties to them, such as negating ninjustu and changing its shape.
