Okay, here is the updated and changed Chapter 1. You may not notice much, as little has changed, but a few things have, mostly what happened after Naruto died. I felt I might have been a little careless there, my bad. Anyway, here you all are.

Chapter 1: Betrayal and Ascension

Life sucks.

These words can be taken up by one Naruto Uzumaki as he fought against his best friend at the Valley of the End.

Naruto's life had pretty much sucked ever since he was born. When he was born a massive nine tailed fox attacked and was sealed inside his stomach by the fourth hokage. Sadly, the villagers needed something to vent their anger on. The result was Naruto's tortured childhood. He was given overpriced rotten food to eat, had little to no friends, and was treated like a leper. There were days, specifically his birthday, when people got rowdy. That tends to happen when people get drunk. Thankfully, at that point, Naruto was pretty good at hiding.

In the Ninja Academy Naruto's life didn't improve. He made little to no friends because of his status as a pariah. On top of that the many teachers would sabotage his work so he became known as the class idiot and was the dead last of his year. While some teachers didn't sabotage him the Jinchuuriki thing did work against him by giving him more chakra than the average genin at his age. As a result, Naruto had trouble doing simple techniques like clones, substitutions, and transformations. As a result, he was labeled a lost cause since the teachers didn't want to put in the extra work.

Naruto also had to play the part of an idiot because it helped keep the villagers off his back, especially the shinobi.

Naruto had contemplated leaving, but he couldn't. He had nowhere to go. He had no family to speak of, alive or dead, and he had a feeling that once he stepped foot outside the village, without a guide there would be a massive fox hunt.

He managed to graduate, after three failures, by mastering and A-ranked technique called the shadow clones, which he could use with extreme ease, and beat the tar out of a traitor to the village.

After graduating he was put with the Rookie of the Year, Sasuke Uchiha, and his number one fangirl, Sakura Haruno. Their sensei was Kakashi Hatake, a perverted Jonin who spent most of his time reading smut. Their first test resulted in Naruto being tied to a post even though Sakura did nothing the entire test but hide.

Right away Naruto realized Kakashi was just like the rest of the villagers. He hated him for the Kyuubi and did his best to sabotage Naruto by refusing to train him. He focused all his time on Sasuke training the arrogant emo prince.

He did the same in the Chuunin exams saying Sasuke needed him more because he was fighting a psychopath named Gaara. Naruto in the meantime had to fight Neji Hyuuga, who had no problems nearly killing his own cousin!

With the help of the self-proclaimed super pervert, Jiraiya Naruto learned summoning. He beat Neji and would later beat Gaara by summoning the toad boss, Gamabunta.

Later, Naruto would learn another A-rank technique called the Rasengan and save the life of one Tsunade Senju, who was going to be the fifth hokage.

Despite all this nothing changed. The villagers all passed on Naruto's accomplishments to Sasuke because they didn't want to believe that the demon could actually do something incredible.

Now, Sasuke, who believed Konoha was holding him back, had decided to ditch the village for Orochimaru, one of the village's greatest traitors.

Naruto and some of the other rookies, Shikimaru, Chojui, Kiba and Akamaru, and Neji had all been chosen to retrieve him.

The team had beaten all their opponents with the help of three Suna Shinobi.

Now Naruto stood off against his fellow genin in a fight that would decide.

Sasuke had activated a curse seal he had on his neck and had gone into a second state that turned his skin gray, his hair purple, gave him a black mark on the bridge of his nose, and turned the sclera of his eyes black.

Naruto was currently wrapped up in a cloak given by the use of the Kyuubi's chakra. He had a large fox tail and two large fox-like ears on his head formed by the cloak.

The two glared at each other across the way of the two statues of the valley of the end. Naruto formed a large spiraling ball of chakra in on hand while Sasuke gripped what like a ball of lightning.

The two launched at each other.



The two clashed with a loud bang. A massive black orb formed in the middle of the waterfall and there was a loud explosion.

When the smoke faded it showed Naruto and Sasuke lying down on the ground. Obviously, the fight had taken a lot out of them.

Meanwhile a man in jonin attire with gravity defying silver hair, a headband slanted over one eye and a face mask saw the whole thing. With him was a mall brown pug that had a darker brown snout, ears, he had a blue vest that had a seal on the back and a headband like Naruto's and the silver haired man.

"Well, what do you know?" the pug said in a deep gruff voice that was very deceptive for his cute appearance, "The kid actually won. Well, it looks like you won't need me anymore Kakashi. See you later."

The pug vanished in a puff of smoke.

Kakashi stood up and clenched his fist. He had seen the jutsu Naruto had used. How dare the dead last use one of the two jutus that the yondaime, his sensei used. How dare this demon pervert one of the jutsu that made his sensei famous?

Kakashi walked forward and leaned down next to Sasuke and began to heal him using a medical jutsu that he had copied.

After a moment Sasuke began to stir.

Sasuke rose up with a pained look on his face.

"What happened?" The Uchiha asked.

Then he remembered and turned to glare at the unconscious blonde next to him.

"Easy Sasuke," Kakashi said, as he walked towards Naruto and started to pick him up.

The movement woke Naruto who stirred slightly.

"S-sensei?" Naruto asked, as he saw the familiar hair, "W-What are you doing?"

Kakashi answered, "This is for the best Naruto. Sasuke is going to kill you and rid the world of the Kyuubi. At the same time. He is going to gain the next phase of his Sharingan, the Mangekyo, and return to Konoha."

Naruto's eyes widened, "You can't be serious!"

Kakashi simply lifted Naruto up and said, "Oh, I am. And I'm sure the Godaime will give him some leeway when she hears of how he had to kill you because you had lost control of the Kyuubi's chakra and went on a rampage."

Naruto tried to get away from Kakashi, only to feel a seal get pressed onto his back. He could feel the Kyuubi's chakra stop healing him and the pain returned from his shoulder wound. Sasuke, having heard Kakashi's words, smirked. With this he would be able to get one step closer to avenging his clan. Not only that, but he couldn't let it get out that the dead last had defeated him. Naruto was at the bottom of the totem pole for a reason.

The sound of chirping birds reached Naruto's ears as he saw the Chidori active on Sasuke's hand.

The Uchiha had that same infuriating smirk on his face.

"You should be happy dobe," Sasuke said, "With your death, you will be helping me get one step closer to being able to kill my brother. You should be glad you'll be of use to a great clan such as mine!"

With that Sasuke pulled the attack back and shoved it through Naruto's chest. The whiskered blonde coughed up blood as the attack shredded his lung and nicked his heart, causing it to bleed.

Sasuke had a triumphant grin on his face. It fell when he realized something. He didn't feel any stronger. He didn't feel any rush of strength, nor did his Sharingan feel changed. What happened? He was supposed to get stronger with Naruto's death. That's what Kakashi just said.

Naruto's pained chuckling reached his ears.

Sasuke glared at Naruto who was just laughing.

"You actually think…I thought you were my friend?" Naruto rasped, "An arrogant prick like you? I tolerated you Sasuke. When I'm dead you'll gain nothing. You lose."

He then turned to Kakashi and said, "Congrats, sensei. It looks like you are just as much trash as this duck-haired bastard. When you die…I'll be waiting."

With that last word, and a smirk that infuriated Kakashi, the light left Naruto's eyes. The young ninja had died.

Sasuke growled in anger as he was denied the power he so rightly deserved. It was necessary to end his brother and finally avenge his clan. The boy went through hand signs and yelled, "Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique!"

Sasuke only released a few sparks as he found that he had too little chakra left after the battle. The strain of using the level 2 curse seal hitting him like a runaway cabbage cart. The boy then pitched over and fell right next to the now dead blond.

Kakashi sighed as he reached into his pocket and pulled out a blank scroll. He removed the suppression seal he placed on hi, before sealing away Naruto's body in it and sheathed it on his belt. While he hated doing so, he didn't want to risk Orochimaru getting his scaly mitts on Naruto's body, especially if any of the Kyuubi's chakra was still left in Naruto's body.

He then picked up Sasuke and headed back to Konoha. He looked up as clouds began to gather in the sky before rain began to fall. Kakashi looked up, believing that the heavens were crying with joy at the destruction of the nine-tailed beast.

"Finally, you can rest in peace sensei."

Unknowingly, Kakashi and Sasuke's actions had just started Konoha's death clock.

In a high plane of existence…

"Damn, that silver haired bastard!"

The image of Naruto being killed and burned was seen in a mirror.

The mirror was on the wall of a very extravagant looking room. In the room were several individuals.

The one who yelled was a woman with long red hair and purple eyes wearing jonin garb. Though you couldn't tell her eyes were purple because she had an epic scary face on as she radiated crimson energy while her hair waved around like octopus tentacles, her face completely shadowed with only round white circles in place of her eyes.

The second was a man with spiky blonde hair with two long sideburns running down the sides of his face. He wore a jonin like attire under a long white trench coat with the words yellow flash written on the back with red flames imprinted on the bottom.

The third was a man long brown hair cut short on top with two locks wrapped in bandages framing either side of his face. His eyebrows were cut short and his eyes had blue marking around them, which were turned up in the corners. He wore a high-collared, light-colored kimono held closed by a dark sash. On the collar were several magatama decorating it. Under the kimono was a full-bodied suit.

The fourth had short spiky brown hair, with two locks wrapped in bandages and framing either side of his face. He wore a headband with a metal plate replacing the ninja headband only without the symbol. He wore the same outfit as the other man.

The fifth was a tall and pale skinned man with deep wrinkles. He had spiky, shoulder-length, pale-red hair, with a chin-length braid hanging fin front of his left ear. He had a long beard. He also had two horn-like protrusions on his head. He had purple eyes with a black dot as a pupil and ring like pattern around it and a red marking that in the middle of his forehead. If you looked at his palms you would see a light-colored circle on his right palm, and a dark-colored moon on his left.

The sixth was a tall man with featureless white eyes and hornlike protrusions on his forehead. He had no eyebrows and long light-colored hair with bangs combed to the left, and a single chin-length lock that hung from the right side of his face. He wore a light, full length kimono with a pattern of six black magatama around the collar and dark pants. He had a sword strapped to his left hip and a dark crescent moon on his left palm.

In order they were Kushina Uzumaki Namikaze, Minato Namikaze, Indra Otsutsuki, Asura Otsutsuki, Hagoromo Otsutsuki, and Hamura Otsutsuki.

As mad as they were…there were three people who seemed angrier.

The first was a woman with beautiful tanned skin. Her tanned skin was a contrast to her long snow-white hair. Her golden eyes were filled with anger. Her curvaceous body was covered by a pure white battle dress with a window cut out that showed off some of her chest and cleavage. Her dress ran down to her ankles her feet were covered with white boots that went up to her calves.

The second was just as curvy as the first. In contrast her skin was pale and hair was pitch black and done up in pigtails. She had bright purple eyes. Her attire consisted of a black corset with dark purple highlights down the center. He lower half was covered by a skirt that went to her knees and was a little loose. Her feet were covered with black boots. In her hands was a black staff with a large double-bladed scythe that had the kanji for hell on one end and the kanji for heaven on the other.

The third woman was also curvy. She had short green hair that went down to her neck. Her eyes were a deep brown color. She wore a deep green top that revealed her cleavage and her midriff. Lower half was covered by tight pants and what looked like hiking boots. Over her top was a brown leather jacket that had the image of vines wrapping around her arms.

In order they were Kami, Shinigami, and Tozi.

"Damn humans," Shinigami said, "Do they really believe that Naruto is a demon. Do they have such little faith in their leader and my power!?"

Kami reached out and said, "Calm down sis. There is no need to go crazy. At least not yet."

Tozi nodded and said, "Yes…there are other matters we must focus on."


The three goddesses turned to see Kushina was tearing into Minato furiously even though she had been doing so since the day that they died.

"I know! I know! I screwed up!" Minato yelled back at his wife, "Don't you think I feel bad enough about what has happened to our child!?"

Kushina yelled, "NO!"

Hagoromo shook his head and asked, "How far the world has fallen. If Tobirama and Hashirama were here no doubt they would weep at how far their beloved village has fallen."

Hamura nodded and said, "I must agree brother. The ninja world has fallen into chaos because of the gift given to them."

Asura crossed his arms and said, "It is truly heart wrenching to see my reincarnation put through such pain."

Indra nodded and said, "Yes, and mine has become so horrible. At least after my defeat I began to mellow out."

Kami walked forward and said, "All right, I believe we are all in agreement?"

Everyone looked at the goddess and nodded. Kami reached out and snapped her fingers.

Ashes began to form and rose from the ground. They began to mix together in a small twister before growing bigger and forming a skeleton. After a few more moments muscle and sinew began to form and then skin. Orange cloth began weaving into existence on the body. In a matter of minutes Naruto was back and alive.

"Huh? What the hell?"

Naruto looked at his hands, shocked to be alive. The next thing Naruto knew he was enveloped by a powerful hug and being squeezed like crazy. All Naruto could tell was a lot of red color.

"Oh, Sochi! I missed you so much!"

Naruto then pushed away from the powerful hug, despite the woman's bizarre strength.

Naruto stepped back away from the duo. Then he saw him. The blonde-haired man behind her.

"Uh…Hi?" Minato said awkwardly.

Naruto's look became angry.


The next thing the dead kage knew he was tackled to the ground. Before he could gain his bearings he found himself being beaten in the face by Naruto furiously.


Kushina managed to pull the boy off her husband. Naruto was now thrashing around in her arms.

Minato got up off the ground and said, "Okay, I deserved that."

Naruto writhed in Kushina's arms. Tears of anger were running down his cheeks.

He stopped and just started crying.

"Why did you pick me?" Naruto asked.

The older blonde answered, "Because…you're my son."

Naruto froze. There was a brief silence.

Kushina let her son go.

Minato approached slowly.

Naruto then threw out a leg and kicked the man between the legs.

Minato let out a cry of pain as he fell to his knees clutching his injured body.

The other guys in the room all winced at the strike to the balls.

Kushina then wrapped the blonde around the boy's shoulders and hugged him tightly.

"…does that mean…you're my mom?" Naruto asked.

The red haired kunoichi smiled and said, "Yep, Kushina Uzumaki. The red hot-blooded habanero, and second jinchuuriki of the Kyuubi, Dattabane."

Naruto blinked and laughed and said, "Wow. Now I know where I get my verbal tic, dattebayo."

The older Uzumaki giggled cutely. As she snuggled Naruto tightly, like she had hoped to do when he was a toddler. She then made the mistake of rubbing Naruto's cheek.

Naruto purred. Kushina pulled back in shock as Naruto looked very embarrassed. She was then hugged him squealing, "Cute!"

Naruto continued to purr in his mother's embrace, though he tried to get out of it, but it was very difficult given Kushina's incredible strength.

The three goddesses smiled and kami said, "As much as I hate to break up the touching family moment we have business to get to."

The young ninja looked up at the three women and blushed slightly at how pretty they were.

"Naruto," Kushina said, "may I introduce, Kami, Shinigami, and Tozi, the three goddesses, and the Otsutsuki family, the family of the sage of six paths.

Naruto looked at his mother then the three goddesses and the people who started the ninja world, not that he knew that last one of course.

Naruto looked at them briefly brining in their features as he realized that they were not only telling the truth, but he could feel the incredible power coming off them. He could have sworn he heard a voice in his head say, "holy shit", but he pushed that aside.

Naruto blinked in shock before finally bowing deeply to the three goddesses. Naruto wasn't that big on manner or tact, but even he knew that you shouldn't mess with divine beings.

Kami smiled and said, "There is no need to bow before us Naruto. We have brought you here for a reason."

Naruto answered, "What? What reason do you have to talk to me about?"

Kami answered, "The world…the world has become a dark and desecrated place. The gift of chakra given by the sage of six paths has been abused over the years. Even the person who was supposed to have the power of the six paths has been corrupted. We want you to bring peace to the world."

Naruto blinked and said, "Peace? What are you talking about? Wait, aren't you three are goddesses? Can't you do something?"

Tozi spoke up and said, "Unfortunately, ancient laws passed by creatures older than us prevent us from involving ourselves in the world of mortals. We are however, able to choose champions to fight for us on the mortal plane."

Shinigami nodded and said, "Yeah, you are the only one. There is another person from your village who has caught the attention of a few of our siblings. I believe his name was Itachi."

Naruto's eyes widened at the name of the Akatsuki member who he had seen before. He flinched slightly as he remembered the cold, emotionless eyes that the Uchiha clan murderer.

"Are you crazy!?" Naruto yelled, "I may have a grudge against Sasuke…but Itachi!? That guy murdered his entire clan on a whim! Why the hell would he do that?"

Kami stepped back, surprised at the boy's words.

Then she held out her hand. A portal appeared in front of them.

Curious, Naruto approached the portal and was surprised to see a conversation between the Sandaime and a younger Itachi. He heard them speak about how the Uchiha clan was planning a coup. How Itachi had been forced to choose to kill them to prevent it. He could see the regret in Itachi's eyes as he was given the order. Afterwards, it showed Itachi being inducted into the Akatsuki. He saw the tears of anger running down his cheeks and his wail of absolute sorrow.

Naruto blinked in shock. He had no idea. It also meant that Sasuke wasn't even fighting for the right reason. His thoughts turned dark as his mind went back to Kakashi and Sasuke for what they did to him. Killing him for power, and doing so because of some stupid old grudge. It also made Naruto wonder what would happen if Sasuke ever found out the truth.

Naruto was brought out of his thoughts when Kami spoke.

"There is more than just that, Naruto," Tozi said, "The man you called a grandfather is not the man you knew him to be."

Naruto looked at the nature goddess with a confused expression.

"What do you mean? The old man was always there to help me when I needed it."

Kami waived her hand again and there was another image shown. It showed the old man talking with his advisors, two people whom the blonde knew hated him. They seemed to be talking about how they should have Naruto as a weapon for their village, nothing new to most. What shocked Naruto telling them that he agreed! How he told everyone in the village his status, because he knew that they would react badly to this information. Ordering certain ANBU to make sure Naruto would be caught in certain bad situations, and others to save him. All so he would have a reason to have some connection to the village. If that wasn't enough to hurt Naruto's image of the old leader, the image rewound a few years to show the four meeting again, and planning the downfall of a country called Uzushio. He saw the younger Sarutobi give orders to sabotage the seals protecting the village, and ignore all calls for help. He saw the village fall, with his mother being lead to Konoha. The image then began to fast forward showing a younger Naruto having special seals placed on his body that would further cripple him, all provided by the bandaged old adviser, Danzo, if he heard right, only to have the seals be burned off by the kyuubi's influence.

The elder ninja present looked upset at the new information, especially Kushina as displayed by her hair rising and waving around like the tails of a certain giant fox. The Otsutsuki siblings looked upset as well.

He was shocked to find out that this was to bring the Kyuubi to Konoha, so they would have a weapon against the other villages.

Naruto fell to his knees in shock. His grandfather figure, the man who laughed at his pranks, and welcomed him into his life with open arms…was a fraud. He didn't see him as a monster, but he only saw him as a weapon and a tool! Naruto felt like his world had just shattered.

The trio gave Naruto a couple of moments to get his head together.

"Like we said, the world is corrupt. There are other examples, such as your treatment as a child. The bloodline massacre in Kiri, the abuse of the biju to create the jinchuuriki and their abuse. We want this to end. We want to bring true peace to the elemental nations."

Naruto blinked in shock.

"What did you mean by bring peace? What do you want me to do?"

Kami smiled and said, "We will bless you with power from all three of us. We have also found someone to teach you. And I mean really teach you, not like the lazy Cyclops or that perverted hermit. Someone to bring you real power."

Naruto blinked in surprise.

"What do you get in return?" Naruto asked, "I highly doubt that such a great honor would come without a cost."

The three grinned as they looked at each other.

Tozi said, "Simple boy. First, we want you to destroy Konoha. That village has become a corrupt shadow of its former self. Not just the village, but others who believe themselves above the laws of nature and to be gods in human skin."

Naruto's thoughts went to Orochimaru when he heard that remark.

The goddess of light answered, "The world has become a shadow of it's former self. Your ancestor, the sage of six paths, gave chakra to the world in hopes that it would help the world. Instead it has lead to a war stricken world. For you to complete this mission Naruto, you must bring peace to the elemental nations."

Naruto's eyes widened slightly. He was wondering why they were giving him this mission. Narutow as honored, bu the was also nervous as this was a very tall order. Naruto was quiet as he thought, which brought slightly concerned looks from those around him. Naruto then pushed aside his doubts. If they believed that he could do it, then he would give it his all. A steely reserve formed in the boy's eyes.

"So, what do you think of our offer?" Shinigami asked, "Are you willing to accept the job?"

Naruto was quiet for a minute.

Then he said, "Yeah, on one condition. I get to wipe out Konoha. It's high time that village got what was coming to it."

The three nodded. Kushina and Minato looked at each other. Kushina was happy her son decided to join them and bring down that corrupt village. If not just for his own revenge, but for what they did to his home country and his people.

Minato looked upset slightly at his old village, but he quickly squashed the feeling.

Kami stepped forward and said, "As Kami I bless you with my power over light. You can heal any wound, physical and mental, revive the dead."

She leaned down and kissed his left cheek causing him to blush and leaving a white lipstick mark.

Shinigami stepped forward and said, "As Shinigami I bless you with the power over darkness. You can cause any injury, manipulate the darkness."

She leaned down and kissed the boy's right cheek leaving a purple lipstick mark.

Tozi then said, "As Tozi I bless you with the power over nature. You can freely communicate with animals of all kinds and I give you knowledge of every jutsu on earth."

She leaned down and kissed his forehead leaving a green lipstick mark.

The three marks then glowed brightly as they faded. Naruto then felt a huge rush of power run through is body.

Naruto groaned in pain before taking a few steps back and rubbed his head.

"Oh man," the blonde boy said, "I feel like I just chugged down a huge barrel of energy drinks."

Kushina said, "Come on now gaki. We can start your training tomorrow. For now, though, I'd like to catch up with my son and I think you'd like to meet your other teachers."

With that the Uzumaki-Namikaze clan members and the Okutsuki clan members began to leave.

The three goddesses just stood there and watched.

"So that's him, huh?"

The three goddesses turned to see two new figures entered the room.

They were a man and woman.

The man was rather tall, standing over six feet, nearly seven feet. His body was covered with muscle showing he was built for both speed and power. His skin was tanned. He wore a black lined gold vest with a white shirt with a long pair of black pants and combat boots. There were black armguards on his forearms. The man's eyes were gold and reptilian like and on his bared upper arms were patches of what looked like…lizard scales.

The woman looked incredibly young. She had long, wavy blonde hair that reached down to her feet with a single lock pointed upwards, large green eyes, that didn't have and irises, and her build was child-like. She wore a frilly, pink layered robe with a red ribbon tied in a bow around her neck. Around the chest were three diamond patterns with two blue triangles above. Each of these series were outlined in hot pink. On her head were wing-like adornments around her ears, and small hoop earrings. She also lacked shoes.

Kami smiled and said, "Yes that is the child of prophecy we told you about."

The man scoffed and said, "The little runt didn't seem like much."

The woman elbowed the man in the gut and said, "Oh, quiet Bahamut. You can see if he is worthy. Give the kid some time to relax and rest. Besides if I remember correctly you value family. Isn't that why you called the dragons back in Earthenland?"

Bahamut muttered something under his breath and said, "Be quiet Mavis."

The now identified Mavis giggled and said, "So when will he go to my world? I'd like to see his face when he learns about magic."

Kami answered, "Eventually. I want him to gain good control of his powers before he starts learning from you Bahamut…no offense."

Bahamut shrugged and said, "I understand. My methods can be brutal."

With that the five figures began to walk away from each other.


On a large mountain filled with toads a certain one shifted.

The toad was incredibly large, easily eclipsing a building. He was brown colored with a white belly. He was incredibly wrinkles and his eyes were squinting. He wore a professor's hat with tassels and an orb on top of it. Around its neck was a necklace that had the kanji for oil on it.

This was Gamamaru, the great toad sage.

There were walls lined with scrolls all around this toad.

The toad shifted a he felt something off he reached out with a webbed hand.

He pulled the scroll from the wall and opened it. His squinted eyes widened as he saw the words on the scroll be rewritten.

Gamamaru wheezed slightly and said, "The prophecy…has changed."

Cut! Okay, people the rewrite has begun. Okay, before we get started I need to get something off my chest. I was not a fan of the ending of Naruto. There I said it. To me it felt like the writer was attempting to appease the fans. In my opinion, I would have been better to kill Obito and Madara, have Sasuke go into hiding for his war crimes, come back to help Naruto when Kaguya woke up years later because of the war, then redeem himself by dying, taking Kaguya with him. In my opinion that would have been a better ending. That is just my opinion on the ending. I liked everything up until then. I can't fault the writer for a bad ending.

Moving on, this story will be taking a better turn as opposed to the original. I hope you all enjoy it. please review.
