Location: Further north than I should be.
Of the Uchiha, the Kazekage would never be left to say that death came easy. Even surrounded, alone, and largely outmatched by his opponents, Seto did not let his end find him quickly. Even maimed by a flurry of black from above, he did not hesitate in dividing his attention in order to face the threats that faced him. He did not balk when he was forced to turn to meet Kyōsuke's blow. As much as that could have helped him, the wherewithal alone would not have been enough to impede the Kazekage's hand from finding its target. To his credit, Seto did not balk in recognition of that fact either.

Even as he was struck in the head by an arrow, the man opened the Gate of Death. Even for his monstrous transformation, the great cloud of distinctive red steam that enveloped him after he pounded at his chest spoke of his acceptance of his fate more than the Kazekage would have thought the man to actually have been capable. His subsequent charge towards his demise was thus predictable, even if utterly unmatched in speed. It did not matter. His deflection of the lumbering statue with a single forceful glare did not matter. The roiling wave of force that followed his roar, tearing at the ground and the air, did not matter.

Letting the impact flow across him, the flames that wreathed his body kicked back as they were whipped around him by the force of the wind, blown away in the beast's dying throes. Feeling the pressure of the blast as much through the change in the atmosphere as he did across his skin, Kyōsuke anticipated the change needed in order to maintain his advance and met with a pressure of his own, pushing off of the air behind him with a flare of the flames at his back. His stance changed as the beast rushed to him. His right hand raised to guard and his left, still thrumming with destructive energy, lowered towards his centre. With as many hits as he had taken, Kyōsuke was concerned that anything more severe would have brought the engagement to an immediate conclusion. With a thought, one of his clones dispersed. A longer fight meant that he would need more of his chakra back sooner.

Two quick steps to his left brought him to the correct position to work past the blade that he knew the beast would raise to him, but his mind's eye told him that any such flurry of slashes would come at some delay. A bolt of lightning arced its way towards Seto, and its strike was not a moment later accompanied by the shimmer of another shinobi appearing next to the suicidal former Hokage. The Kazekage did not struggle to recognise the second Uchiha, nor did he struggle to recognise the difference between Seto's near-instantaneous movement and the actually instantaneous arrival of the boy. He had seen what he was certain to be Hiraishin no Jutsu before, and recently. More than anything else the Kazekage did not struggle to recognise the boy's skill in taijutsu, as he manoeuvred cleanly past the much-faster, older Uchiha.

The style of his assault was something of note to the Kazekage as well, but the pace of the blows left him no time to reflect mid-combat. Instead, as the pillar of earth raised between himself and the clashing pair, he prepared to grab for Seto's wrist. Whether Kyōsuke did so as the man continued his attempted assault on him, as the man was sent crashing through the stone that Kazu had raised, or simply as the man turned to run, did not matter. So close, it did not matter even that the beast's own speed far exceeded that of any other combatant on the field. Kyōsuke was the more coordinated of the two, the more experienced of the two, and the more perceptive of the two.

As he grabbed at the man's wrist, he turned to use weight and momentum in his favour, throwing him hard onto the ground. In comparison to most of the strikes the man had taken, Kyōsuke's could have been gentle if not for the searing heat of his fire-clad hand. All the same, he expected that Seto would no more be hurt for the burn than he would be from the arrow or Kazu's strike. Of a user of all of the Hachimon, no one could expect such fragility. Even with an arm severed and his wits frayed by the bijū inside him, the man represented a threat that few could deal with.

For that reason, the Kazekage was surprised when he saw a couple of flies persist in buzzing around the field through his mind's eye. Whether his throw had been successful or not, or whether he had even gotten the opportunity to engage with his opponent, he stepped away from Seto as chains of chakra lashed out in his direction. Kyōsuke was little inclined to welcome interlopers, and he had already been made to cede some involvement in the fight to Kazu. Where he stood little chance at preventing the chūnin from battling his former commandant, he expected that he would have had no such trouble in preventing the chains' user from joining combat. Even so, he hesitated to stand as an obstacle.

He did not hesitate for the sake of his ostensible allies. The Kazekage's attention was drawn from those before him to the one that played host to Matatabi. The jinchūriki turned tail from the battlefield, rushing towards the cover of trees. As his eyes were drawn away from Seto, he noticed that clones in the shape of the disguise that Kanari's clone had worn in the ruins of the apartment ringed the clearing that had been made in the forest. As wholly invested as he was in ascertaining some truth closer to that of Shingen's death than he could otherwise come to know on his own, even the Kazekage could not fight Kanari, Seto, and a jinchūriki that could maintain their ability to think while in their second form all at once. His eyes turned back to Seto.

"First you, then the others."

He had, quite frankly, fooled a lot of people.

That was a shinobi’s job, after all. He had shown himself to be so close to death that most thought that their attacks would put him down and on some level he had even believed that himself. He could not have been more wrong, however. The only thing that had cut through his chakra cloak was in fact, The Hand of the Kazekage, which had severed his arm at the shoulder. He was just turning to face that when a bolt of lightning hit him in the face as Kazu slammed into him with the force of the boy – the man, near enough, now. His pride in his shinobi was undercut only by the uncomfortability of being slammed hard into stone, locked as he was by the Kazekage’s grip, the force of his acceleration was transferred instead into the shoulder. He was vaguely of his chakra returning – his clone had been dispatched.

His sensory flared as, surprisingly, the biggest threat of them all came from Seigi. He was calling out to him, forgiving him, and that alone was surprising enough to break Seto free from the influence of Exia for just enough of a moment that he kept himself docile even as Seigi delivered a sickening blow. The chains began to wrap around him, dragging him and locking even his terrible strength into place, that red influence returning to his mind. ”You idiots! Find the stone! Each word was itself a terrible shockwave, enough to maim normal men and send trees flying throughout the battlefield.

With the conflict only growing wilder, Arid sought to pitch in her own offensive maneuvers. This time, however, the woman opted to stay at a distance, being sure to stay within arms reach of the meditating clones of her mentor.

Both hands flicked upwards, forming two identically sightless spinning cutters between her first and second digits on each hand. With another flick of each wrist the blades of wind were loosed, sent speeding towards the rampaging Seto, who had found himself wrapped in a cacophony of chains and rendered immobile. His rage only increased, and when he finally found the words to express it, they became his weapons. Devastating shockwaves exploded from his location, causing Arid's stance to be staggered, but she held her ground with feet only digging into the terrain below. The woman reset her stance, ready for anything. It took a mere moment for her body to ignite in the same manner as Kyousuke's had, burning white-hot. If anyone were to advance on her, she would be more than prepared.

Even as the beast was seemingly constrained, moving ever towards death, its death throws were dangerous. As the words left its mouth, shockwaves followed. The clones, Ayane thought. She spawned a clone, without the use of handseals, and enacted a technique. The earth under her and her clone, as well as Kyosuke’s clones. The clone, meanwhile, used the sand that was spawned nearby to reinforce the walls of the hole that had faced the ex Hokage, strong enough to absorb even the brutal force of the shockwave. She wouldn’t fail the Kazekage, not today, not in this apparently important task.

The beast itself, though, seemed as if it was almost defeated. These really were the death-throws of god man.

With the original gone, the clones continued to stand watch. That is, with the exception of the few that observed Ran suddenly shift in movement towards the perimeter. As far as he could tell, she had arrived not long after he did, but her presence raised many questions. Of everyone here, excluding the obviously erratic Seto, she was the only one whose presence Kanari couldn't rationalize.

Rei's presence was one thing, taking Kana away made some degree of sense, but what was Ran doing here? Did the two of them have anything to do with what Seto was up to now? Just what the fuck is going on here...

As she attempted to evacuate, the perimeter bulbed with clones stepping back to account for her speed. With three jumping down to block her path and a dozen more standing by at a distance in all directions but the continuing battle.

"Will you be leaving soon? What are you doing here, Ran?" As the center clone spoke, a putrid mist filled the air that would stifle even the most unskilled of noses. She wasn't leaving yet, not until he was sure that she had nothing to do with this.

The explosive clone's initial target had been summarily dealt with before it could achieve its purpose. Yet, that target had been a mere clone of a greater beast. Kensho's explosive clone shifted targets and launched itself at the now thoroughly restrained original. It would detonate once in range, careful to place its target's body between the explosion and any nearby allies to avoid causing a friendly fire situation.

Kensho's original Shadow Clone, running low on chakra, dropped most of its ongoing techniques, leaving only its sharingan eyes and armor active. It drew a kunai defensively and stayed near the perimeter observing. Perhaps it could still make a difference via self-sacrifice or otherwise. If it was lucky perhaps it could even glean a new technique from the smorgasburg surrounding it.

Despite everything that hit him, the raging ex-Hokage did not falter. Blow after blow piled into the man, and still he rose to his feet. Kazu's coordinated strike found its mark, his fist crashing against the incredibly hot chakra cloak while the pillars smashed into the target from behind. Crushing the man's body between those two opposing forces until the slabs of earth broke was undoubtedly painful. He's lasted so long. Kazu thought to himself as he witnessed Seto be slammed into the ground with great force by the Kazekage. A deathly chill crawled through Kazu's spine as he watched, the malicious aura Kyosuke was known for working fear into the boy's heart. It was unsettling to be beside such a man, but silently Kazu counted his blessings to have the Kazekage on their side of the engagement. With no time to waste, large, shimmering golden chains erupted from all around, latching onto the jinchuuriki and ensnaring him for Seigi to make a return entrance. While he did so, Kazu briefly turned his attention to observe the massive army of clones that now surrounded the entire group-- the same old man from back on the streets of Konohagakure, the one that Rei had pointed out.

What is he doing here?
The thought loomed over Kazu's mind, but there was no time to deal with that now. For the time being, the old man seemed content to stand as a bystander with his army of clones, so Kazu's attention would remain focused on the present threat to them all. In an explosion of rage, Seto's words carried with them a roar of power. Multiple shockwaves came barreling out from his position, tearing the ground apart with sheer might. Without hesitation, Kazu turned and backpedaled, distancing himself from Seto while the shockwaves continued to move closer and closer. He retreated a far distance, crossing past his previously placed Flying Thunder God seal. The quintuplet of shockwaves passed by it as well before the Chuunin's form disappeared, instantaneously reappearing at the location of his mark. He now stood on the other side of those shockwaves, freeing himself from their threat. Without a wasted second, Kazu dashed away from the area, separating himself from the location before the falling trees even managed to slam into the ground with a large crash.

Speeding forward back into close quarters with the ex-Hokage, Kazu settled on a different plan of action for the time being. Rather than rely on brute force, he would shift tactics towards something smarter. The increasingly powerful pressure of Seto's power weighed down upon the brown-haired Uchiha, but through strength of will, Kazu refused to allow it to hold him down. Crossing the distance and closing in on the Hokage, Kazu reached forward, throwing a right hook towards Seto's upper-body. In truth, he didn't care so much about hitting him, but instead simply touching him. With perfect precision, Kazu's hand would open up and turn at the proper time to instead place the palm of his hand down against Seto's body. Practically hidden amidst the chaos, the thick steam oozing from the man's body, and every other factor, a small string of kanji would etch themselves onto the jinchuuriki's body if Kazu succeeded, placing his mark upon the elder Uchiha.

Afterward, Kazu hoped to simply create some small amount of distance, leaning back into a side-kick directly towards Seto's stomach. He packed less of a punch than his last attack had held, that much was certainly true, but a direct hit would still be enough to launch the Hachimon wielder backwards quite a distance.

OOC: Zik gave me permission to skip her.



It wasn't his intention to stun Seto with his words, but it was the break they needed. With his keen focus broken, Seto paused and Seigi stepped forward. Chains of chakra tightened themselves around Seigi's arms, encasing them like gauntlets with wild endings, the gold hue from the chains mixing with the Snake Sage's light red to create a rose gold hue of chakra around Seig's arms as they prepared to strike Seto. Sliding into place in front of Seto, Seigi's right arm, already primed to strike, extended outward, upward, directly into Seto's chin, the sound of Seigi's chains constantly grinding away at each other unable to hide the terrible crack of the punch. As this happened, chains from every direction would explode towards Seto, wrapping themselves around the Kage's limbs, somehow staying on par with his incredible strength. The clones themsevles struggled still, even with their combined might.
But just as Seigi believed he had achieved the upper hand, he could feel Seto's chakra welling up once more. He didn't have the time to prepare anything, not with how quick it happened. The real Seigi's chains would unwrap from Seto, and instead wrap themselves around Seigi completely, acting as a shield against the shockwaves of Seto's words as they rang out into the battlefield. Each one brought destruction outward, Seigi's clones unable to withstand the force of the blast and dispersing.The mass of chains that held Seigi blasted away from Seto, slid across the already upturned ground, before coming to a stop amid rubble.
Unwrapping themselves and dispersing, Seigi no longer donned his Snake Sage form, and the chains that had wrapped themselves around his arms no longer supported his injured one. Burns from the chains surrounded Seigi's still steaming arms, tanned into his skin, a now-permanent reminder of his attack against Seto.
Lifting himself up was harder than it ever had been before. His legs shook, his breath heavy, but he stood.

"Find the stone?"


His eyes widened in shock.

"Enkou."

He didn't want his goodbye to his sensei to be so abrupt, but the only thing he cared more about stopping Seto was making sure Enkou was safe. He was the one who got him into this situation, it was Seigi's job to see to it he stayed safe. Seto was close to the end, Seigi could feel it. Even if everyone here was defeated, he activated the Gate of Death and everyone here knew the punishment for using such extreme power. Seigi wondered for a moment if he had done that on purpose or not, and in that moment of wonder, as Seigi opened his mouth to speak goodbye, was interrupted as battled erupted once more. He knew Seto wasn't really much for goodbyes anyways, but there was still so much Seigi wanted to say. NEEDED to say. But he knew exactly what Seto would tell him in this situation.

" It's when we confront our own demons that our light goes bright, the will of fire never burns out at that point...lmao"

Double smirking, Seigi mustered up what strength he had left into walking, which quickly became running. With his good arm, Seigi would touch his hand to the seal on his neck.

"Enkou, keep moving, I'm on my way to you."

Location: Further north than I should be.
Backing away as the jōnin's chains wrapped around their target, to give the boy space for whatever moment of intimacy he sought to have with the beast he called teacher, the Kazekage felt the distinct tremor of warning pass through him. He began to back away quicker, putting a considerable distance between himself and the Uchiha even as Seigi struck his first and only blow on the man. If it had been one of his own students that had thrust themselves before such a volatile opponent, Kyōsuke might have gone to throw them out of the path of the coming destruction before moving himself, but it was not. Passingly, he wondered whether the jōnin would survive without the intervention of another, as he expected Kazu would. He did not keep watch of the former as he did the latter.

Letting out a measured breath, the Kazekage braced himself for a violent expulsion of force; after allowing both the energy that surrounded his left hand and another of his clones to dissipate, he formed a single half-handseal. In the same manner that Ayane had lowered the earth behind him, Kyōsuke raised the earth at his front. As enormous as the barricade was, he did not expect it to fully absorb the brunt of the successive blasts sent outwards from Seto. He did not need it to. He formed another half-handseal as he drew a breath back in and briefly broke his stance, his right hand coming to meet the left as a translucent cylinder formed between them.

"It's useless," he told a former Hokage that he neither supposed could hear him nor cared if he could. He could hardly make out the words that accompanied the eruption of chakra from Seto, but he understood that the man had lost all sense of tactic. He felt cornered, and the outburst was desperate. The whine of his second invocation of his Kekkei Tōta was lost beneath the roar of the first wave striking his barrier, but Kyōsuke was not able to loose the technique on his quarry before he was made to adjust his aim. The thunder of a second and third impact filled his ears before he found his opportunity.

Through his mind's eye, he could see that Kazu had avoided the serial shockwaves better than Kyōsuke had initially believed he would, and had leapt back into close quarters with their foe. With a pair of strikes, the boy put enough distance between himself and the beast to grant the Kazekage an opening. The cylinder, expanding near-instantaneously to occupy far more than the distance between Kyōsuke and the Uchiha that had sealed his fate with death, would leave little room for the man to manoeuvre. In truth, he aimed not directly at the man, but behind him. The technique covered a greater distance to each of his sides than even he could move in a second and, with its axis behind him, left him no room to retreat. If he had not been knocked off-balance by Kazu, he'd yet have to charge back into close quarters with the chūnin to avoid disintegration.

Any outcome was acceptable to the Kazekage. Less an arm, he did not care if Seto was pulverised into nothing. In truth, he relished the thought of slaying one who had opened the Gate of Death before they expired of their own accord. Such was the kind of contest that he had wanted. The exhaustion that filled him was the kind of release that he had needed. If he survived again what would smite a lesser man, the former Hokage would serve only to further grant Kyōsuke everything he wanted, and if he did not he would go on to do much the same.

No matter the case, the thrum of the technique's undoing of the matter contained within it heralded the obliteration of an enormous segment of the ground that he had raised. He had carved a hollow not only through it, but also a shallow trench from the ground even beyond. Where Seto had been standing, all of the superficial soil and stone that had remained after the shockwaves had been reduced to nothing. The same was true for all of the ground in a line that only ended before it found the perimeter of clones.

If he glanced over his shoulder, Kyōsuke knew that much of the area behind him would have been spared the effects of the volley of detonations, not only for the wall that he had raised to mitigate much of the pressure but also for his Kekkei Tōta's dissolution of any residual energy that it had met. Where other ninjutsu struck and clashed against such force, his dismantled all that it found. Even so, anxiety at the prospect of multiple opponents whispered doubts in the back of his mind. He worried that his students' focus would be drawn too heavily to the notion of the threat that the beast that had been a Hokage posed, rather than that actually posed by the former Hokage who retained his good senses. Even if Kanari did not step forward to oppose him here, the one that had taken Matatabi had not yet left the field and could still fight him.

Whether they did so or not, he knew he had to finish Seto first, and so he did not turn until he knew the man's life to be taken. Through the void that he had dug in the great column of earth, he looked at what his attack had wrought. His right hand raised as guard again, and he resumed his stance.

Each clone is meditating to accumulate senjutsu chakra.

Stamina remaining: 78/200 (0, 23, 0; the original has 5 and 200, one clone has 25 and 40, two clones have 24 and 40)

Keep in mind Kyōsuke's SA, The Un-Maker; he emanates an aura whose feel is not unlike that of Sakki (殺気, lit. Killing Intent), whose effects are felt by all those in his presence (so long as they maintain a line of sight).

His men responded quickly to his roars.

Kazu, with a defensive action designed to keep himself safe from the awesome power of the Shakuku. Seigi did similarly but he did as all god Konoha shinobi should have done. He followed orders. It seemed that Seto had finally talked some sense into the much younger shinobi, who hadn’t experienced war as he had. But even without that he was a good soldier. The sand shinobi also reacted quickly – which pissed Seto off. They had betrayed them no betrayed him and now they were coming to rob his shinobi of their duty?

For those that hadn’t responded, however, the force of his roars would seriously buffer them; they would be lucky not to be killed, shattered under the raw power that his screams had unleashed. Probably some kind of divine providence.

With Seigi off doing his duty Seto did face the unpalatable process that Kyosuke seemed to be releasing his signature technique granted to him by his bloodline not as good as any of the Konoha clans, though. But Shakuku said, and Seto agreed, that it didn’t need to be as good to remove him from existence. He could spend his eye, but he was destined to die here one way or the other. Most of the Konoha shinobi were well tested this day, and had spent much of their energy in fighting him. He wasn’t sure of these Sand shinobi, but the Kazekage himself was a formidable foe. The two Chunin were acceptable warriors – easily dispatchable, under normal circumstances… But the Shakuku said, and Seto agreed, these were not normal circumstances.

In his mind’s eye, he saw the Kazekage extracting Seto’s body and its secrets, its powers. The balance shifted over to Sunagakure; Kanari, absent. Seto, dead, and his secrets transferred over? For that moment his mind punched through the red mist. Too little, too late. But enough.

There seemed to be only one way out. He couldn’t be taken intact.

Kazu was coming in to fight him, unaware of the danger that he put himself by closing the distance. His eyes flashed with power, a repelling force with awesome power meant to keep Kazu away.

The Kekkei Tota washed over him, and all went black. The Seto was dead, once and for all.

Kyousuke was certainly right about one thing: Her and Ayane would be doing literally nothing but guard the clones for the duration of the fight. And that, they did well.

With little to do other than stand on guard and watch Kyousuke take the piss out of Seto, Arid simply noted how quickly heated this event had become. Realistically, it shouldn't have been easy to recover a kage from another village. That was a given, right? What Arid (and no doubt Ayane) didn't know, was that as soon as they stepped foot in Konoha they'd be thrust into absolutely cataclysmic disasters one after the other. First was the arrival of Rei Uchiha, which no doubt will live in the back of Arid's mind for the rest of her days. And now, the girl was pit against a rampaging jinchuuriki, who was a former Hokage and had both the legendary Sharingan and Rinnegan. And, to top it all off, her fresh-out-of-a-coma Kazekage had more or less solo'd the man within his first five minutes in the fight.

If one thing was certain, it was that Arid wouldn't be coming back to Konoha for a long, long time.

Ayane wasn’t still, even as the destruction washed above them. She raised her hand to her eye as she expelled chakra, siphoning off a small chunk of the sand that she had used to construct her defense. The sand rounded itself into an orb, and an eye emerged from it. As Ayane’s clone dispersed, the eye itself raised above the walls of the great moving earth core in time to see the Kazekage unleash his signature technique. It seemed, in that instant, as if the Seto had given up and ceased all attempts at winning or escaping. It was the first time she had seen the Kazekage unleashed the technique, and she made a small gasp when the dust settled and Seto was nowhere to be seen. She had heard the stories, of course… But to see it. That was really something. He just died! Just like that!

The clone watched as the beast before it was blasted into nothingness. Well that was impressive. The explosive clone that it had dispatched earlier burst, doing no harm to anyone present. What now? The clone decided that his master may want some memento of this battle so he strode forth and picked up the severed arm which, luckily, had been launched clear of the destruction and sheltered behind a rock. Only the clone's visual prowess allowed it to locate the hidden limb. That done, the clone figured it had better go report back to Kensho prime. It began the trek back to prime's apartment, knowing that sooner or later Kensho would return.

With rapid succession, Kazu's goals came to fruition. His initial point of contact went unopposed, allowing the black kanji of the Flying Thunder God seal to slide onto Seto's body. The next was the swift kick to send Seto flying away. There we go, now he's-- Kazu considered, originally holding a smirk across his face. With the Flying Thunder God seal on Seto, Kazu possessed near limitless potential to connect with his opponent, meaning that all he needed to do was bring out the biggest attacks he had. That train of thought, however, was interrupted by the high-pitched screeching that came from the Kazekage's hands. In between them was a bright white cylinder. Kazu wasn't sure what it was, but the technique, coupled with the murderous intent that leaked from the Kazekage's aura, seemed terrifying deadly.

Kazu kept his distance from Seto, giving pause to allow Kyousuke to enact the technique that he had readied. The Chuunin watched his opponent, expecting some sort of reactionary move that would protect him from what was about to come. Because of that expectation, Kazu was caught unaware of Seto's true intentions. When Seto's purple, rippled eye flickered with power, the younger Uchiha could not have predicted the true nature of his expelled power. The force of his Almighty Push crashed into Kazu, begetting a gasp of surprise as he caught his breath. The teenager was tossed backwards by the force, pushed away from the edge of the Genkai Hakuri as it instantaneously expanded, encompassing that impossibly large area.

That was the last that Kazu saw of him, the elder Uchiha that Kazu had long held his own rivalry against. It took a few moments, until after the Genkai Hakuri had faded and left nothing in its wake, that the impact of Seto's last play was felt. The Almighty Push ... It wasn't as devastating as the earlier ones were, it was not used to hurt, but merely as a force to knock Kazu away. He ... He was trying to protect me. The words in his head weighed heavily on his mind. For a few seconds, he stood there, wordlessly, looking at the emptiness that replaced where Seto had been. Seto ... What happened to you? The Ex-Hokage was gone now, taking to the grave with him the answers to all of the questions that Kazu had.

"It's over now." Kazu called out to the group of shinobi that had gathered at this fight. It was a hard-fought battle, but they emerged victorious. Even still, the win felt somewhat hollow. With the mixture of perspectives that Kazu and his clone had earned, the former hearing Maia's heartfelt tears over the thought of losing Seto while the latter heard the maliciousness in Seto's treatment of his fellow shinobi, he wasn't quite sure how to feel anymore. That last moment of Seto's life complicated it even more. "Damn it, Seto ..." Kazu muttered under his breath. His eyes turned to the rest of those present to see how they were reacting. Afterward, his eyes turned to the army of old men surrounding the entirety of the area. Who was he? What was he doing here? It was the same guy that Rei had pointed out to Kazu.
