"There is luck in the last helping. That much is true, but if you are truly strong you can burden anything on your shoulders, by your self! Accepting help from someone, is what proves that you're weak. To come out of a desperate situation and make a complete return in one sudden burst is the true goal of a Shinobi. You kids seem to call yourselves Shinobi, well now that's pathetic. Just be real for once, know this well what you youngsters do is nothing more than playing ninja, ninja! Look at you; so scared, even afraid to accept that you're afraid. This is the true face of Shinobi world! Fear and Darkness and everything else you'd hear is a lie. People are satisfied to judge things by their own narrow experience, never knowing of the wide world outside. Do not judge people by your preconceptions and their appearances, as you may already have heard appearances are deceiving and you can never depend on your preconceptions! Do you how many wars have gone by? How much pain have we endured? That's what we do! We endure maybe that's why we are called Ninja. But, no more it's about time when we give them a taste of our power, the hatred inside us which has been growing till now is screaming out loud, it's time we spill their blood. Let the Sixth great World War Begin!"
Takumi Uchiha (うちは巧, Uchiha Takumi) is one of the major characters in the history of Konohagakure, Takumi Uchiha was a jōnin level shinobi from an unknown origin (presumed as Taifūgakure ) and a prominent member of the Uchiha Clan. He was thought to be wiped out in the Uchiha Clan Massacre along side the other members of the clan, however the it has been noted that he was never killed during the. According to sources, he was seen again during the Fourth Shinobi World War (第四次忍界大戦, Daiyonji Ninkai Taisen; English TV "Fourth Great Ninja War").
Rumors had been heard that he resides within the Land of Cyclones; in the past few years Takumi has grown extremely notorious which has caused him to become an wanted-nin, later on Kage's considered him to be a nuisance and declared him to be an internationally wanted criminal. Ever since then, there is no sign of him in this world and it is presumed that no one is currently aware of his whereabouts.
Takumi Uchiha, better known as Takumi was born seven years prior to the clan massacre in a small village that is somewhere in the Land of Cyclones. Being born to an unnamed yet famous and powerful Uchiha couple, Takumi has always received the best education, formal training and all other luxurious in his life. It seems that the Uchiha couple were considered as "nobles" or Land of Cyclone. Takumi being the only child of the couple was the only heir to the throne however, before he would turn ten his uncle Souta Uchiha mixed poison in his fathers food and later on mercilessly stabbed him which ultimately lead to his father's death. After his father's, death his uncle, Souta inherited the throne and married the noble’s widow, that is Takumi's mother. Years later, when Takumi turned fifteen his wicked Uncle stole their ancestor's sword and his mother's precious necklace, and kept it under Takumi's pillow and proved him to be a theif. This news spread out through the land like a wild fire, this news had brought disgrace to the noble family. Then his uncle ordered him to banish from the court, which he did for the sake of happiness of his mother.
During his banishment, in the forest of heaven he met a young man named Sageru Uzumaki who informed him that his father had witnessed the murder of Takumi's father which is why later on his father was sent to banishment as well. This news greatly angered him but he was helpless, for he knew one wrong could destroy his beloved mother's life. To somewhat, he met a girl in the forest who at first attracted him, later he couldn't help it but fall in love with her but this happiness didn't last too long, one day the girl revealed that she has an incurable disease and she is soon going to die. Before he could grasp his breath, she tells him that she has been hiding this from him for a year and a half, saying this she collapses before him.
On his way, he met a Sage who could call souls. So, Takumi requested him to bring his fathers soul before him. When the sage, calls fourth Takumi's fathers sould, a ghoulish spirit appears, it speaks to him, declaring ominously that it is indeed his father’s spirit, and that he was murdered by none other than Souta. Ordering Takumi to seek revenge on the man who usurped his throne and married his wife, the ghost disappears with the dawn.
Takumi devotes himself to avenging his father’s death, but, because he is contemplative and thoughtful by nature, he delays, entering into a deep melancholy and even apparent madness. The sage and Sageru become aware of Takumi's mental condition and desperately tries to console and comfort him. With his fathers voice echoing in his head, Takumi could no longer take the disgrace his uncle had brought about in his clan. Soon, he reveals that he had already activated the famous Sharingan.
That night, Takumi finally revealed his Uchiha blood's true power and defeated his uncle in a duel, he also single handedly defeated all of the Shinobi's who were working under him. When Takumi insults his uncle and tell him to go away, just at the moment when Takumi was chakra drained his uncle tried to take advantage of the situation and tried to stab him but just before the moment he would be stabbed his mother, jumped right in and intervened the sword thrust which lead to her death. Before dying she told Takumi that she always loved him and his father, this act completely traumatized him, the pain of loosing his father, his love, his dignity and finally his beloved mother caused him to awaken the clan's most feared eyes; the Mangekyō Sharingan. With which he not only crushed his uncle but also mercilessly killed him and his soldiers.
Following the complete annihilation of the noble family, Takumi vanished from the lands of cyclones for a few years. He moved to the foreign lands of Kirigakure where he was trained in the arts of espionage, assassination and Kenjutsu. Takumi who was now a young man in his early twenties was seduced by a Kirigakure seductress, who offered him to sleep with him for free. Takumi to somewhat being naive didn't understand the true motives of this lady, that night the lady robbed him and tried to kill him, when again Takumi managed to knock this lady unconscious and fled. Ever since that he swore to himself he would never trust any body.
Takumi also participated in the Fourth Shinobi World War while in the disguise of a Jōnin level Shinobi from Iwagakure. Though he didn't go on the front lines but he defeated every opponent he faced which caused others to doubt his identity and hence he was forced to make his escape.
Path of Sage
Lord of Hell
Takumi is a tall and slender individual. Takumi has long hair that protrudes out the back of his head. His hair is dull black in color and is wavy. Takumi also has a ponytail and his eyes are an amber like color. He is always seen wearing a kimono with green and black stripes and a white cloth draped over his shoulders and zōri. The hair on the front of his head also covers the right half of his face. Currently, his outfit consists of a a red cloak over a black kimono and zōri, with a black scarf around his shoulders like a shawl. He is also seen carrying varieties of scrolls with him which allows him to call forth his Sword. After joining Kuroiryuu his appearance underwent some major changes. Such as, he ties his hair. And, seemingly he has gotten a bit taller and muscular. His current appearance consists of a black leather hooded coat. It is plainly adorned with a silver zipper and seemingly pointless silver beaded pull strings for the hood that form a semi-circle in the middle and black sandals. Takumi dons a face mask, in the similar manner to Kakashi Hatake, alongside fingerless black tekkou which only cover the back of his hands and a black and white checkered scarf.
Takumi is initially depicted as a kind, loving, carefree, peace loving and emotional boy. He has great respect for the village elders and his parents. It has been seen that to somewhat he was even proud of his Uchiha lineage and would sometimes proudly say he is the son of the only noble clan in entire land of cyclones. He always had a craving for acknowledgement, specially from his father. He deeply loved his mother and admired the heroic ways of his father, though he never truly liked his uncle but for the sake of his parents he endured him.
Takumi has shown to be carefree man in a state of peace, but he can be aggressive and protective as seen when defending his mother from his uncle, trying to protect his lover and friends, when Sageru reveals what happened to his father, he responds by screaming, and trying to choke him to death, before finally calming down and crying. He is also slightly perverted as shown when he told Kana, "Although so many years have past. But, your chest size remains the same" instead of a simple greeting.
It can be observed though he never met Raido X, but just by hearing his tales he considers Raido as an inspiration for himself. Takumi has also displayed an unusual lust for combat, he seems to enjoy torturing, threatening, black mailing and slashing his opponents. He is cold, vengeful at times however he can be unusually kind at the same time.
Takumi stated that he does not care about the Will of Fire or the Curse of Hatred, as he has created his own ideals to life rather than live by the one's set by others. According to Takumi, women and pleasure are top priority. Though usually a laid-back, jovial, humble and eccentric man, Takumi shows a deceptively cunning and serious side when the situation warrants it. He commonly uses idle conversation and outward concern to distract his opponents. Despite his care-free attitude, he always speaks politely, but is sometimes sarcastic.
Takumi can usually be found near the scene of an important event, but he rarely intervenes in situations, preferring to stay on the sidelines. He often knows more information than he lets on, and despite being a major player in the situation, he acts only as a catalyst, having others do the work for him. Takumi is a very mysterious man, since his almost constant smile, combined with his heavy use of sarcasm and mocking politeness, make it very difficult to discern his thoughts.
As stated by others in the recent years, Takumi is a very scary person with no care in the well-being of others, preferring to do whatever it takes to get what he wants. This often leads his opponents to surprise him, as he doesn't think before attacking. As the head of an unknown organization, Takumi uses authority to assault those that get on his nerves, including his own subordinates. He prefers to be alone, and hates crowdings. This lead him to beat anyone who he thinks crowding around him too much. He has full confidence with his own strength and power, and dislike to work together with anybody due to feeling bind and restrained, making him refuse or won't easily take suggestions from others into consideration. He is shown to dislike being indebt to anyone and strives to pay them back as soon as possible and can't stand being restrained and he absolutely refuses to allow himself to be controlled.
However, like all other men he has a soft spot for women and entertains them regardless of their looks and disposition. He outwardly admits to hating illusionists because of his grudge towards his uncle, the first person to have defeated him. His desire to be alone and attack people that annoy him still remains, though his actions are shown with more thought.
Keen Intellect; Battle Oriented Genius And Master Inventor
When Takumi was younger he was considered as a genius, being hailed as a child genius he always had an incredible intelligence and analytical skills to begin with. He was highly proficient in his academy, and he graduated in one year. His skill was already evident at a young age when he gained a position in the ranks of chunin shortly after graduating, ultimately surpassing the previous child prodigy. Takumi has shown himself to be highly manipulative and deceptive. He comes out unscathed due to the calm confusion he plays at, which is a testament to his overall strategy. In his battle with Sageru Uzumaki, Takumi was able to manipulate the positions of three people so Sageru would have to choose between saving his own life or others without any visible effort. He is capable of simple deception by having his opponent focus on one thing while hiding the true threat.
Takumi is analytical, perceptive, and deductive. Back in the days of acedemy, his grades were always at the top, despite his mental condition. Aside from that, Takumi can determine the pattern of his opponent's battle methods and form a proper counter-strategy to defeat his opponent's attacks. Takumi is well-trained in both body and mind, having substantial athletic abilities and a genius intellect. He uses his intelligence to find weak points in his opponents, even overcoming disadvantages he has through thinking on his feet. With his high-level intellect, strategic and manipulative skills, he is able to quickly elaborate plans, defeat his foes and decipher almost any jutsu. With his amazing manipulation skills he can twist ideals of multiple Shinobi's, mislead them and even play with their feelings and goals, in order to aid him through direct or indirect ways.
As a battle genius, Takumi can identify, take advantage or counter most forms of ninjutsu almost immediately and he is rarely caught off-guard, at which point he quickly adapts to the situation. Unarguably, the most fearsome trait of Takumi's is his tremendous intellect. He is well-versed in the history, strategy, and tactics of Shinobi world, and is privy to knowledge unknown to many. He has also shown himself to be a masterful and flexible tactician, capable of adjusting seamlessly to any given combat situation, if not planning out events well in advance. He understands the strengths, weaknesses and mannerisms of his enemies, and creates strategies to achieve victory.
He has shown himself to be a very crafty and cunning man. He is able to deceive and manipulate others around him in different ways for a variety of purposes. He has a great talent for analyzing and observing everything in his presence, allowing him to quickly understand a person's pattern of thinking and better manipulate them. He is also a master strategist, capable of formulating well-thought-out plans several steps ahead of others. These plans are incredibly involved and detailed, and are planned out with the long term in mind, making them seem slightly convoluted.
He is very literate in body language. He can often predict what an opponent will do before they do it and better plan his attacks this way. His IQ has been stated to be over 250 easily.
He happens to be a master inventor, he is credited as a man who has invented guns in the first place, many of his notable inventions produce great effects such as The Serum, pistol, shot gun, Blow torch, Antidote, Device X and Thrower Mk-2. He also happens to be the person who discovered Mustard Gas.
He is one of the most shrewd businessmen in the world, a trait that has earned him an immense fortune, while under the disguise of Raimei Heki (劈雷鳴, Heki Raimei). At the height of Heki Industries's power, he virtually owned every business enterprise in the Land Of Cyclones. Takumi's corporate skills applied just as sharply in the political arena as they did in the boardroom. He is also a polymath who has specialized in multiple fields of medicine, engineering and science. He possesses 14 Ph.D's (two of which are in engineering and physics-including assorted doctorates and masters in degrees in Law, Psychology, Chemistry, Medicine, Political Science, Physics and Mathematics). He is an expert in the field of psychology, specifically the study of anxiety disorders. He is a walking textbook on the study of fear, and can recite the name and description of nearly every known phobia. He often demonstrates his intellectual prowess by analyzing his fellow patients.
Once stated by Rei Kishi, "That guy is a brilliant individual, with exceptional skill in practically every field of science, with expertise in applied science, chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, and mechanics. He is an accomplished chemist and physicist. And, the worst thing is....he is always right".
Natural Speed And Reflexes
Takumi has been shown to possess great level of speed, seen when he outmaneuvered Ryūken Senju during their first battle in spite of the later's incredible speed. Takumi moves at exceedingly fast speeds, appearing behind Ryūken and slashing him before the former could even turn to face him. With his natural speed being so high it is said that once he caught an speeding arrow with his bare hands. Takumi always possessed great speed and honed reflexes and is fast enough to dodge most of the attacks swiftly. Since the start of his career as a Shinobi, Takumi showed a high level of speed and reflexes as he was able to notice the ambush of an intruder and effectively counter it.
Combined with his own durability his speed and reflexes would serve as a weapon to him. Although not his most used combat tactic, he can use this natural skill of his to combine with his already high level taijutsu. His reaction time is superior to that of any Olympic level athlete that has ever competed.
Immense Durability, Agility And Stamina
The tissues of Takumi's body are harder than those of most humans. While still susceptible to injury and disease as any normal human; his skin, bone, and muscles are augmented to levels that are somewhat harder and stronger than normal humans. His entire body is oriented to combat, enabling him to adapt to any environment with minimal exposure. He can withstand high caliber bullets, great impact forces, powerful techniques, and falls from great heights without sustaining physical injury. His body being tougher and more resistant to some types of physical injury than that of a normal human. Takumi's bodily tissues are resistant to powerful impact or blunt force trauma.
Takumi's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
Takumi's musculature generates considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. He can physically exert himself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his bloodstream begins to impair him.
Takumi could initially bench press 800 lbs and lift 1,000 lbs. However, he has injected himself with a serum which contains the powers of R and Naien.
Takumi's physical strength has dramatically increased to the point of being able to lift up to 5-7 tons. He has proven to be able to beat Ryūken Senju unconscious and hold his own against Naien, R, and Raido at the same time. Following his reset of powers from being cured of his degeneration, along with embracing The Other, it is assumed his strength level is roughly around class 7. His strength extends into his powerful leg muscles, allowing him to leap heights and distances in excess of human capability. Unlike Naien, Takumi generally has no restraints on using his super-strength against enemies with typical human durability, and as such, is capable of severely injuring enemies with normal attacks. This makes him an overall dangerous foe.
Before becoming a Kung Fu master, Takumi trained in the art of Karate. He is a master in several forms of Kung Fu, notably Dragon Style. He has mastered a technique which includes an attack known as the Leopard's Claw. He is a master of several martial arts. He is a deadly assassin and one of the preminent martial artists on the planet. He has combined many moves and elements from numerous martial arts including a few forgotten ones to create a combat form that matches his own strengths. Leopard Style Kung Fu, Dragon Style Kung Fu, Judo, Capoeira, Kokusho, Savate, Karate, Stick Fighting and Jijitsu. It is observed that he was taught Kickboxing and Aikido by Muchinushi, the same person who trained Naien and Kūkan.
Takumi happens to be the master of his own created form of martial art, which he refers to as "Way of Chi", this consists of internal damaging such as leaving the opponent with internal bleeding, paralyzed limbs, induced pain or overlapped muscles. A way similar to the Gentle Fist, mastered through years of training. This form of fighting targets vulnerable spots on the human body, nerve clusters and joints. It is said to be the gateway for students to experimentally understand the martial aspects of the internal martial arts (內家 nèijiā): leverage, reflex, sensitivity, timing, coordination and positioning. It works to undo a person's natural instinct to resist force with force, teaching the body to yield to force and redirect it. Health oriented t'ai chi schools may teach push hands to complement the physical conditioning available from performing solo form routines. The technique allows students to learn how to respond to external stimuli using techniques from their forms practice. Among other things, training with a partner allows a student to develop ting jing (listening power), the sensitivity to feel the direction and strength of a partner's intention. In that sense this is a contract between students to train in the defensive and offensive movement principles of their martial art: learning to generate, coordinate and deliver power to another and also how to effectively neutralize incoming forces in a safe environment.
Takumi uses the technique mostly to use use the attackers own momentum against them and push them away with a single strike of hands, although the strike may hurt a little and leaves a burning sensation on the outside but on the inside it causes muscles to overlap thereby makes his opponent(s) unable to use their physical prowess.
Takumi possessed the ability to achieve a state of perfect equilibrium in any position imaginable. He seemed able to adjust his position by instinct, which enabled him to balance himself on virtually any object, no matter how small or narrow. He had developed a unique fighting style that made full use of his agility, strength, and equilibrium.
Kinetic Energy Absorption And Control
Takumi's primary ability was the ability to absorb the energy caused by a kinetic impact. While this power does have limits, he can survive a 20 story fall, discharge powerful concussive blasts of energy/chakra/chi, and be struck with superhuman force without suffering injuries. Takumi's kinetic absorption power evolved to greater limits and the energy he absorbed had to be channeled into powerful blasts of concussive force or heat. He could also purposely channel the energy to increase the force of his physical blows. After absorbing his peak level of energy, his punches and kicks were 10 times stronger than normal. It isn't known if he could channel the energy for the purpose of lifting great amounts of weight.
After absorbing the energy of kinetic impacts, he can now channel the energy into blasts of corrosive energy due to an acidic enzyme that was secreted from the tips of his fingers. This enzyme was specifically produced aside from it's naturally acidic properties, could counter act an enemy's accelerated healing capabilities. The process of self-healing was actually reversed so that the more an opponent's body tried to heal injuries inflicted by the enzyme, the worse the injuries became.
Takumi Uchiha is a man of immense talent and courage. Takumi hailed as a genius of his clan, with many Shinobi's calling him "Brilliant" and even "The Child Prodigy" of his era. Even by the standards of the battle adapted Uchiha clan he is said to be one of the most finest Shinobi's living. And, is hence trained in all possible ways of the Uchiha Clan. Even before attending his academy he received a rough training course. Where he learned all the fundamental was of being a Shinobi and was trained in such a manner that he could defeat a Senju with relative ease. His father deeply wanted him to become one of the strongest Shinobi's so he got the young Uchiha a tutor; who trained him to become a very versatile fighter on his own. Surprisingly, he managed to reach the most advanced-class in a short span of three days and hence his teacher was left dumbstruck with that. He has always been noted for his amazing intelligence and understanding skills.
No matter how hard training it was, he grasped it within few hours which left no doubt in the hearts of others that he is a Child-prodigy of his generation. After spending an year as an academy student and finally graduated as a Genin he found him self to be affectionate with his clan's fire-based-techniques. Soon discovered his natural affinity for fire-style chakra nature.
At the age of seven, he passed out from the academy and became a chūnin at age of eight. He became a jōnin by the young age of ten, and also earned himself a rank in the ANBU (though he never accepted the offer). It has been noted that Takumi's battle prowess greatly exceeds many Shinobi's of the same rank.
Takumi primarily relies on his mastery of Ninjutsu, of which he has incredible mastery and moderately large arsenal thanks to his clan's dōjutsu, i.e, the Sharingan. Takumi has shown drastic improvement in each battle with his ninjutsu mastery and it is said that with each battle his arsenal grows even bigger. With his exceptional skills for Ninjutsu he is said to be nearly invulnerable to his opponent(S), though he prefers using defensive and supplementary type ninjutsu it has been witnessed that he is equally capable of performing a ninjutsu of mass destruction. Takumi has displayed the ability to fly and can transfer this ability to others for an unspecified amount of time. He also has a considerable prowess in the field of fūinjutsu and bukijutsu. Being an Uchiha, he is extremely skilled in the field of bukijutsu and wields a wide range of weaponry throughout, ranging from Sword to Gunbai. With his Gunbai, he can absorb and return the force of an enemy attack.
With his intellect combined with his ninjutsu skills, he can turn even the most simple ninjutsu's into a highly dangerous one. He has proved himself to be extremely versatile with ninjutsu, this is best seen when he uses the Eight Branches Technique with a clone to deceive his enemy. Before activating his Mangekyō Sharingan and gaining access to Kamui, he has shown extensive usage of Transparent Escape Technique.
Takumi was trained in kenjutsu, and became a skilled swordsman. He also acquired a Tsurugi, and the use of kenjutsu has become a major part of his fighting style. His Tsurugi is more popularly known as Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (草薙の剣). Takumi's lethal swordsmanship is shown to be very versatile, using impressive speed and precision behind his attacks, leaving little time for enemies to dodge or counter. He can effectively use it in either a normal or reverse grip, giving him various attack styles and the ability to attack or defend from various angles, allowing him to easily change his attack type to suit the situation. And, as time passed he started to carry various different swords throughout the years. He effortlessly disarmed a shinobi, commandeered his sword and used it to cut down several members of the ANBU-Black Ops during a mission. The speed of his attacks were so great that none of the shinobi he killed using this combat tactic had any time to react. Though he makes use of twin swords as his weapon of choice. His attacks are swift and precise, and are generally used in rapid succession of the other to overwhelm a defense. He is infamous for his ability to string combinations of attacks together through a series of feints to deliver fatal blows to his opponent. Favoring the use of acrobatic maneuvers that allow the user to attack with great speed and precision while airborne along with body movements designed to take advantage of the third dimension in terms of combat. Takumi's movements are characterized by his ability to move sinuously from one point to next, around his opponent and even through the air, constantly maintaining his motion. Movement is fluid, like a snake, bending and coiling as he moves until closing, and distancing become second nature. Power is generated from the sinuous motions, to create swift rippling attacks, like a snake striking its prey. At first glance the style appears to be singularly linear, movement is always in one vector, the same with its attacks, however that is where the true power of Takumi lies.
In addition to his already overwhelming ninjutsu skills and intellect is capable of undergoing several nature transformations. It is said that he is incredibly proficient with each of them. As a true genius ninja and member of the Uchiha, Takumi has great proficiency in Fire Release nature manipulation. He managed to master his clan's rite of passage technique, the Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique by the young age of five. He can also use a fire technique of mass-scale destruction which would easily cause his foes to be instilled with fear.
His prowess with Water Release outmatches most of the Kirigakure Shinobi's. He can perform his water style techniques even without the presence of any pre-existing source. He can essentially form a dragon of water which would flood and drown his opponents. He can also mask his movements with a secret water based technique. Later on, he was able to use the Water Release: Water Severing Wave; a technique originally utilized by the Second Hokage.
He also has considerable prowess with Lightning Release as seen he was able to flow his lightning natured chakra through his weapons through "chakra flow", hence giving the blade extreme cutting power. During the Sixth Shinobi world war he was able to combine the distorting effects of certain Space–Time Ninjutsu with a formidable lightning technique to form another technique. As a result of continual experiment on his body with the nature transformation of various people, Takumi soon gained access to the rare Wind Release.
When he gained the Mangekyō Sharingan, he manifested Amaterasu, later on which helped him to develop an advanced Fire Release known as the Blaze Release; an element that draws its power from Amaterasu. Because of his usage of sage mode and mastery over Blaze Release he is given the moniker Sage of the Black Flames (黒炎の仙人, Kokuen no Sennin).
He is also a Yin Release genjutsu user, who has displayed to have amazing skills with illusions. He also has an extensive knowledge of Yin-Yang Release, its component Yin and Yang as well as techniques which involved this kind of nature manipulation. Yin and yang, the natural dualities of polar opposites or seemingly contrary forces that are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world and how they give rise to each other in turn in relation to each other. With many distinct natural dualities e.g., dark and light, female and male, low and high, cold and hot, water and fire, earth and Wind—are thought of as manifestations of yin and yang (respectively). Though described as polar opposites they combine to form a greater whole with almighty effects such as creating anything or all things. Everything has both yin and yang aspects as light could not be understood if darkness didn't exist, and shadow cannot exist without light. Ryūken states that separating the energies of yin and yang, also interpreted as positive and negative electric potential respectively. When the yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy) collide together to become whole again then lightning is created. With his deep understanding of yin-yang he was finally able create the principles of a devastating technique for himself.
After getting into Orochimaru's contact he seemingly gained and imbued Guren's DNA which allowed him gain access to an unique kekkei genkai, known as the Crystal Release. Within, a few months he completely mastered Crystal Release and created a secret technique for himself. After researching on the remains of an young ŌtsutsukI and imbuing his remaining cells (further enhanced by him), he gained access to Six Paths Yin Power and when combined with Ace's cell, he awakened Dark Release nature.
Takumi always possessed a natural affinity for Snakes, by letting him sign a contract with the snakes of the Ryūchi Cave he was taken through the execution of the technique in order to provide Takumi with allies in future battles. With his unusual affinity for snakes he learned a number of snake-related abilities, including learning Sage Mode. In addition to the traditional Summoning Technique, he can also make use of other variations of the Summoning Technique, based on snakes, such as the Hidden Shadow Snake Hands. Takumi can also bind his opponents with little time to react. Finally, Takumi can also summon snakes from any part of his body.
The most interesting fact about Takumi is after controlling Shukaku with his newly developed Mangekyō Sharingan, he was able to summon it a number of times. The mere presence of the tailed beast was more than enough to ensure his victory over others.
With his immensely large chakra reserves and strong life force, he was deemed as worthy for learning the arts of Senjutsu, he was taught senjutsu by the White Snake Sage where he gained access to a Sage Mode.
Due to his incredible affinity for Snakes and loyalty for them, he was offered to visit Ryūchi Cave where he discovered the existence of Senjutsu. Here, he attempted to learn senjutsu as well as Sage Mode and managed to master it. As a master of Sage Mode, he enjoys it's abilities to the fullest extent. Takumi has devoted his entire senjutsu experience to improving his ninjutsu techniques for usage in battle. In exchange for these immensely augmented abilities he had to stay still which was a bane for him. So, like Naruto he decided to use clones in order to overcome this disadvantage.
Physically, Takumi undergoes little alteration in this form, with the only visible changes being the markings around his eyes extending onto his back and the growth of four horns on the back of his head, as well as darkened sclerae. While using Senjutsu, his physical strength, speed, stamina, and durability dramatically increases. Also, his perception abilities and reflexes dramatically increase. He also gains access to snake anatomy, such as their brille, which can be used to lock out light as well as stop visual-based genjutsu from affecting him. He is also able to perform abilities that are characteristic of snakes, such as dislocating his jaw.
He can use a technique which releases both blinding light and deafening sound also he can effectively use a technique which can reduce his foes to ashes. Takumi has also demonstrated the ability to expel venom of high viscosity when can essentially strangle his opponents to death.
Takumi awakened his Sharingan at the age of ten, that is after his father's death. As a member of the Uchiha clan, Takumi possesses the great Sharingan, the clan's kekkei genkai. This dōjutsu grants him all the Sharingan's standard abilities such as analyzing and predicting movements, as well as copying enemy techniques into his arsenal. He first developed it at age 10, during his fight with his Uchiha uncle, with two tomoe in each eye, but Kenmei had forgotten he had activated the Sharingan from being traumatized by the incident. He was able to reactivate it during the battle with Sageru, where his right eye acquired three tomoe in it. By the time he fought Sigma again, both eyes had three tomoe. In developing his Sharingan prowess, he drastically increased his time periods to which he can maintain it, with little effect to his chakra levels, even in prolonged fights against several high-level opponents. While making good use of it, Takumi also developed a number of more novel uses for it. Takumi regularly uses his Sharingan genjutsu abilities, which grew considerably strong, to easily hypnotize opponents, replay memories, paralyses his target, and control a tailed beast such as Eight Tails. Using it, he gains access to the dōjutsu's generic abilities such as seeing chakra, predicting movements, and placing a victim under paralyzing genjutsu with just a single glance, leading those who had faced him to advise others to not look directly at his eyes whilst confronting him. Takumi is able to use these abilities in conjunction with his primed taijutsu and weapons skills in battle to deadly effects, leaving his opponents with very little time to react or means of defense. This eye also gives Takumi a heightened visual perception to his surroundings and helps him to deduce complicated jutsus at relative ease.
He reached the stage where he could even have his Sharingan activated for extended periods of time, with minimal drain on his chakra levels. With the Sharingan, Takumi reached the point where he could presumably utilize one of the Uchiha clan's ultimate dōjutsu, Izanami, and also understood its counterpart, Izanagi.
A glimpse of the dōjutsu's infamous potential to subjugate the tailed beasts. The young Uchiha is also able to trap his opponents in an illusionary world where he could paralyze his opponents which is accompanied by physical pain.
Takumi awakened Mangekyō Sharingan after witnessing his mother's death. His tomoe's took an unique shape taking the form of a pin-wheel with sharp ends. However, unusually for a Mangekyō it rotates in the reverse direction when compared with other's Kaleidoscope eye. With his right eye, he can use Amaterasu which ignites unquenchable black flames at the focal point of his sight that continue to burn for an entire week, or until they have completely consumed whatever they come into contact with. Takumi's usage of Amaterasu easily outmatches others, as he can freely manipulate these black flames. He is capable of using Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi and further could develop a varieties of techniques, such as the - Blaze Release: Shurikens. He can extinguish and manipulate these flames with the aid of his left eye.
Again, with his left eye he can cast a space-time ninjutsu, namely Kamui. Shockingly, while using Amaterasu and Blaze Release continuously deteriorates his vision, Kamui does not cause him to suffer from the Mangekyō-induced blindness, inspite of his extensive use of the technique. Kamui grants him two abilities: teleportation, and another best described as "intangibility". As the first part of this technique, the eye serves as a gateway to another dimensional space, which he can instantly send parts of his body to and bring back from. This causes him to seem "intangible" in the original dimension; when struck, attacks pass right through him.
Due to this, Takumi favours using his intangibility for defensive purposes, by letting his opponents and their techniques phase through him and absorbing them while they are off-guard. He can also extend this intangibility to whatever he's touching at the time. Takumi can also travel long distances within relatively short time-spans.
Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan
Takumi's eternal is a result on self experimentation and mutation instead of a transplant. Due to constant usage of his drug and new medicines along with radiation and various supplements, his eye evolved thereby giving him access to "eternal light". He is able to use all of his previous techniques in a more versatile manner and has access to some new techniques such as Mukei, Warp Hole and Dimension Rift. He has become a master of space-time now that he can use techniques of high caliber like Hypersonic Warp. It has been noted that he has become capable of using Kamui Shuriken and finally has gained access to Susanoo by unknown means. Although unexplained but it may very well be possible that his Susanoo was born from Kamui, Amaterasu and Mukei instead of Tsukuyomi. He awakened Susanoo even before he discovered the derived techniques from Mukei and it has been growing both in size and power drastically as Takumi continues to evolve. Unlike most Uchiha's his Susanoo has rather evolved very quickly, as seen the first time he only manifested its ribs and then arms but by the next time he used this technique, he was able to perform Susanoo and is able to manifest it's "stabilised" Perfect form. While fully manifested, it has enough dexterity to carefully hold and carry someone in one of its hands, fly, and despite its immense size, move extremely fast. Although, never witnessed before Takumi did mention to Izumi Soga that he could utilize Skaði with his Mangekyō as well, just like her. So, far he has used it only once and with his eternal instead of original Mangekyō.
His most interesting technique is a Susanoo clad in Crystal Release armor and bearing spikes which can be fired as shards, he would occasionally ignite these shards with his Blaze Release technique. Much like Sasuke, his extreme emotions have been the root of its development. While initially relying upon different partial manifestations, Takumi was soon able to complete his Susanoo's body. His Susanoo is electric crimson in color and barely resembles a human. It appeared to be slightly larger than more demonic than that of Itachi Uchiha's in skeletal and full-bodied form. His Susanoo has two sets of arms, which are conjoined at the elbows; the secondary arms are manifested as required. It wields two normal but slightly longer swords. The full bodied form doesn't at all resemble a tengu instead it resembles a humaniod like creature with bright eyes protected nose, cheeks but no mouth. While in its, stabilized form it has two scabbards where it sheathes both of its sword. The primary weapon for him is then a Bō staff, its more like a collapsible Chinese fighting gun, only made of stabilized chakra. The staff can also project out strong blasts off chakra, which are strong enough to knock a tailed beast like Matatabi unconscious. Like most Susanoo's, in its final form it, wears an armor becomes more solid and samurai-like, forming robes, pointed shoes and body armour on its shoulders and waist. The construct has forehead protector-like plating on its head, two locks of hair falling on either side of its face. However, the entire nose, mouth and cheek area is covered by a mask therefore giving it a mysterious look. Its secondary set of arms form wings, allowing for flight. By combining Susanoo with Kamui, he is able to launch multiple giant shuriken, which are able to warp away what ever they strike. His Susanoo was big enough to dwarf Kurama easily. Using Blaze Release: Susanoo Kagutsuchi, he can produce various weapons from the orb, including a blade wielded by Susanoo's primary right hand, which can be used to stab his targets and set them ablaze.
Takumi during his prime gained access to the legendary dōjutsu which was not seen by the world since possessed by the Sage of the Six Paths, the world's first shinobi, and the founder of modern ninjutsu. Although, he was never actually seen using its abilities. It was assumed that he could use all the paths. The only ability demonstrated him so far while using the Rinnegan is, the ability to manifest chakra receivers. He has manifested both Chakra Receiver Rods and Chakra Disruption Blade. Also, he was able to maintain his Susanoo while using Rinnegan as well as absorb and negate ninjutsu using Preta Path.
Takumi's fame comes from his extraordinary usage of medical ninjutsu. Takumi's medical ninjutsu is referred as Godly; a feat achieved by Takumi so far. As a young shinobi he was thought how to use the Mystical Palm Technique, although it took him a long time to master, because of the fact he had no affinity for it but ultimately mastered it. The Mystical Palm Technique helped him in many battles. With his age his prowess with medical ninjutsu increased. Takumi is able to perform any procedure flawlessly to cure and heal injuries that others would consider impossible or a lost cause. Takumi is also able to create a chakra scalpel both for surgery and combat purpose. He is one of the few persons who can heal the psychological damage caused by Tsukuyomi, this maybe because of his exceptional understanding of the Mangekyō technique.
Takumi was able to transmit his healing better known as medical chakra over a range of people healing them within seconds. Takumi himself has created a medical kinjutsu, a lost form of medical ninjutsu which allowed the person to instantaneously heal himself without weaving hand signs- Instantaneous Regeneration Technique. A jutsu which instead of repairing the damaged cells, works on a different principle, it creates new cells. A feat possible my mixing his chakra to ca+ ions of the body. It is this process, that has helped he to retain his youth even after living for generations. This technique not only makes him biologically immortal but also literally has made him an immortal being, that is, he cannot be killed while this jutsu is in effect. Also, Takumi has proven to be skilled enough to be able to diagnose the severity of an attack with just a glance or during healing.
However, Takumi's most interesting work in the field of medical ninjutsu was his own way of gaining eternal light. Takumi after briefly studying the consequences of using Mangekyō Sharingan was forced to thought of a way to gain eternal light because he was certainly not willing to transplant his uncle's eyes, claiming their views are different. After years of research on the cells of the first Hokage, Hashirama Senju and the exceptional prowess of the Senju clan alongside the life force of the Uzumaki Clan after years of research he concluded that these could be used to gain eternal light. The life giving features of these clans are more than just beneficial to the Uchiha clan. He soon formed a drug, which used the cells of Hashirama and the cells of an Uzumaki clan member along side a little chakra of the senju clan which was sealed in a capsule with an unknown base, which allowed him to create a drug which can not only slowdown the consequences but also completely nullify them. Takumi stated he has to apply the drug every third year to prevent his eyes from deteriorating.
Takumi also possesses great information about various forms of poison and their antidotes. And, finally he has also created a truth serum which allows him to interrogate his enemies at ease.
Takumi is able to manifest a murder of crows which he can command with hand gestures. The crows are primarily used to swarm the enemy, hindering their view and seem to be dispelled in a puff of smoke like shadow clones when struck but can also be used for scouting and offensive attacks. Takumi has also displayed a high-level of skill in collaboration techniques, by using the a technique along side his old friend, Hikari Kumoi. Takumi has also modified his body by performing various experiments on it, such as studying a Hōzuki clan member's DNA and integrating it, he gained access to an altered variation of their liquification technique. Through, his experiments on an Uzumaki Clan member, he gained access to the clan's extremely strong life-force and hence regeneration capabilities. He is also well versed in the form of Fuinjutsu; this is best seen when he uses Contract Seal to break the linkage between Ryūken Senju and Gyūki. He infused the DNA of a Hōzuki clan which caused him to gain access to the Hydrification Technique, although he was unable to eliminate it's weaknesses. He has also experimented, with the DNA of several poisonous creatures, ranging from salamanders to snakes. Due, to this frequent experimentation's he has claimed that now he has become immunized to all common forms of poison.
He is a master of assassination techniques, espionage methods, covert operations, infiltration methods, escape artistry, marksmanship, and is highly skilled with many bladed weapons (frequently carrying two swords strapped to his back), and a number of other weapons including firearms. As a result of his naturally perfect athletic gift for hand-eye coordination, He can quickly learn how to wield most weapons even if he's never seen them before. Aside from throwing projectiles, he is also skilled with knives, swords, and other weapons.
