As the flames from the cigarette calm down, a blue aura can be seen fading away at the same time the fire recedes from Madara. Erecting a very primitive Susano'o in order to shield himself from the blast, "Looks like the dance is ready is commence!" Madara would  step forward as he forms a handseal, causing  a small plant to sprout from his shoulder with a big bulb.

It would soon after conception begin to spew pressurized pollen towards the Iburi, capable of cutting through stone. Not only does it threaten to bisect the man, but if contact is made they would show their true danger. With chakra absorbing properties, the pollen would subsume foreign power, growing into full grown spiky trees. Gods help the boy if he gets cut or breathes it in. If allowed to continue, the pollen would slowly but surely spread across the zone.  The Uchiha wouldn't make evading all that easy as he would attempt to follow Ray's movements if he so happens to move in order to keep a constant short gap between the two.

Smoke the massive impact seemingly began to have a mind of its own, swirling into a form, that eventually became the person the man was looking for. From the left corner of Ray's mouth drooped a cigarette, a cherry slowly burning. Just as red as the other man's EMS, Ray's glowed just as crimson. The sinister chakra released gave Ray a sweet sweet pleasure, like he sipped from the nectar of gods. He knew immediately whom he was fighting and began to revel in it prepared to stand his own against the legendary ninja.

Inside his body Hiru, the 0-tails, swirled and howled in delight at the evil chakra being released and absorbed.
"RAY I WANT MORE OF THIS CHAKRA!"The leech screeched in delight. Ray simply grinned, taking one last long drag of his cigarette, before flicking it towards the man walking from the crater. Should the cigarette be allowed to touch the man an explosion occurs engulfing about half the crater, which Ray stood on the crest before it sloped down into the crater. This wasn't meant to destroy the living zombie but rather test his reactions. Meanwhile, after Ray flicked the cigarette, He exhaled filling the air with his own smoke littered with traces of his chakra. Slowly it spread across the town and the smoke created by the impact soon obeyed ray;s command similar to Gaara and sand. Ray's eyes continued to scan for any trace of Madara.

Seeing that his opponent was still reflecting the beam, Naruto would quickly manipulate the disc with his chakra to shift it away from the protective dome just in time. He would move it in such a way that it would stop channeling the sun and just reflect the light, creating something akin to a gigantic flashbag. Prepared, Naruto would blink in time as he forms a single handed kata and with his free hand, form a Wind Release: Rasenshuriken, demonstrating his mastery of the technique, 'I need to end Robo-pops now! I don't want to rely on his power to win this...not after what happened last time...' Naruto thinks to himself.

A very brief image occurs in Naruto's head of red flaring chakra and a mighty roar echos through his mind of a recent rampage. He had much more control over the Nine Tails now, in fact he had half of the beast's strength, but the possibility of losing himself in the power made him hesitant. In reality, the blinding light would hopefully take his opponent by surprise considering he left himself vulnerable enough that he left his eyes  exposed to the open. This would cause them to be flooded by a blinding amount of lumens to temporarily leave his visual perception useless while at the same time hurting him and drastically extending his shadow towards Naruto.

The moment his shadow connects, Naruto's jutsu would activate, the Hiding in Shadow Technique, merging the young man into it. Once the light quickly fades, the shadow would retreat just as fast back to Kamui. This gives Naruto an almost instant transportation behind opponent as he tries to drill into him with his Rasenshuriken with Shunshin like speed. Contact with Kamui or his dome detonates central sphere of the Rasenshuriken, producing a vortex of wind in the immediate area. Within this vortex, countless microscopic wind blades are created, so many that even the Sharingan can't count them all. The wind blades damage anything within the vortex on a cellular level, attacking the chakra circulatory system to leave his foe unable to mold chakra and perform jutsu, possibly disintegrating the Gold along with Kamui similar to Dust Release.

The large blast sends Naruto back over 100 feet, skidding across the ground, making a plume of dirt of debris erupt from impact marks he makes upon the ground as he bounces back. The shinobi manages to get stabilize himself upon his feet as he comes to a screeching halt, his durable body taking the recoil with ease. However, the arm he used to thrust the Rasenshuriken would be in incredible pain as similar damage is done to it and he begins to pant, the immense jutsu taking a toll on him. The jutsu in question would continue for a solid 25 seconds if uninterrupted, but only needing a couple to reduce a large hill to dust. Meanwhile, Naruto's clones would be forced to deal with their chains being redirected at them. In conjunction as previously done before by the other set of clones, they would use in conjunction Advanced Element Sealing Method in order to absorb the Magnetic Chakra around the chains in order to complete the barrier quickly as the vapors free the chains of the greenish whirlpool of chakra, sealing it away.

For the duration that this intense sound wave was playing, the hard metallic surface of the dome would reflect the lingering reverberation outward and safely away from the inner chamber of the dome where Kamui was currently located. One thing that Naruto forgot about while he was busy evading his attacks was that the Fresnel lens was still very much active and upon sensing the clone's chakra signature disappear for a slight second due to the usage of the same space-time technique that was used earlier to teleport from one marked location to another. Kamui quickly reposition the gold reflective disc at their new location and sent an horizontal beam of high-temperature focused sunlight towards them in attempt to dispel the clones that were currently forming the Adamantine Sealing Chains.

Now if that didn't work in stopping the clones from forming that chakra chain barrier, this next move would serve to hinder the completion of that technique. "Adamantine Sealing Chains? I have something for that..." Kamui smirked as he activated his Sharingan and clapped his hands, molding his magnetic chakras around his body as the ground underneath him started to crack from the intense gravitational pressure emanating from his chakras. Naruto would at this point probably notice the red gleam in his eyes from afar and the enormous pressure generated from conjuring up this counter-technique wouldn't be too hard to miss as well.

"Fūingaeshi!" Kamui raised his hands in the general direction of this sealing technique, invoking one of his unique counter-measures that he specifically created for combating sealing techniques and since this particular Uzumaki-related technique happened to be classified as a sealing technique. A greenish whirlpool of chakra would stop these Adamantine Sealing Chains mid-way in the air the moment that these chains exited the ground and would try to prevent these clones from even attempting to erect this barrier, thus halting the technique mid-way before it could be completed. If everything went according to plan, each of these chakra chains would be caught in a stasis field due to his magnetic chakras distorting the space around the incoming Fūinjutsu and would remain afloat in this gravitational field for a brief moment.

"You can't surprised me with a jutsu that I am quite familiar with, young man." Kamui wasn't lying about his familiarity with this technique, back in the distant past this retired kage was once married to a hot-headed red-headed woman from Uzushiogakure no Sato. After his brief exchange, he decided to reflect the technique back each of these clones, sending the chains back at them with astonishing speeds. If nothing was done in time, these chakra chains would wrap tightly around each clones from the shoulder down and would quickly constrict these clones up to the point that they wouldn't be able to move.

A noticeable aspect of C.A.I.N was the flexibility of having to not waste so much chakra performing the time consuming task of gathering natural energy for his Slug Sage Mode. This meant for as long as the Natural Energy Assimilation system is operational on C.A.I.N, there were no set time-limit for maintaining his transformation and the possibilities would be endless due the augmentation granted from the transformation; a glowing apparatus in the middle of his chest could be seen from afar.

[Format Stolen From everyone~]
Summoner: Iburi Ray

Tails Mastered: None

Affiliation: none

Preferred Method: OOC 1v1 or IC 1v1

Preferred Zone: Empty Town

Preferred Judges: PM for details regarding the selection of a judge (I have no preferred judge and want to come to a choice on equal terms with the challenger)

Preferred Outlet: SL Forum

Special rules

-The match is to be a 1v1 death match, if the preferred method was agreed to be IC. However the match will be defaulted to OOC, if that player doesn't agree to *IC* terms of engagement.

-Victory for the challenger is the defeat of the host through any means necessary, and vice versa. Death in the fight does NOT equate to death IC, unless such a term was agreed upon.

-Skills acquired during an OOC match are not carried over IC. Similarly, knowledge of participants' abilities do NOT carry over to IC RP.

-If, by some chance, the match should reach a point of true stalemate after a minimum of 30 days then a judge may be called in to determine a winner based on how the fight has progressed up to this point. Both participants must request this of the judge in person (I.E. Both fighters MUST send a PM for this option.] If this is chosen, then the judge may declare a  winner based on these criteria:

      Who effectively manipulated the flow of the battle the best? The strategy employed (based on the posts) may have been defensive and attrition-based, but was it effective in the long run in wearing down the opponent?

      What caused the stalemate? The challenger being unable to defeat the challenged, or vice versa? Is it constant cancellation of jutsu and techniques by both sides, or merely one side taking refuge in a relatively inaccessible area (such as pocket dimension) in order to avoid defeat entirely?

      Who showed the greatest skill in the fight? This is completely and utterly at the discretion of the judge. His(her) decision is final on the matter, regardless of accusations of cheating or bribery or otherwise. This should be kept in mind when deciding on a judge for the fight.

-If neither side can be conclusively declared the winner, then the fight either proceeds or a draw is declared. In the case of a draw, the challenger may rejoin the queue of challengers after the latest challenger without having to wait for cool-down (this circumvention for the benefit of the challenger for not technically being declared the loser, though by not succeeding the host can be considered a winner in this situation.)
Note, this is a technical victory for the host, so unless the challenger truly believes that a restart is necessary to increase victory chances, then it is not recommended to settle for a draw without reviewing this process a second time.

-Prefers SL forum, as it is most useful for fights where long periods of time may pass between postings, serves as a record of the fight's progress for other challengers, and for that damned time-out option.

-Must post at least once every seven days. Though if a pattern of postings persists (I.E. If either player stretches their posting to the full seven days each and every post without prior notification to the other), then the challenge will be voided. The cool-down will be initiated to challenger (if challenger is problem) and the host will be stripped (if host's activity is problem).

- A judge *must* be picked before or during the first round of initial entrance posting by both parties, if the chosen judge makes a ruling that is deemed ridiculous by either party, a new judge may be chosen ONCE by either side. If the matter still can't be settled, it must be brought to the forums for a final decision.

-Re-posts are allowed, within reason. (I.E. If either participant has to repeatedly re-post, the match will be concluded. See inactivity clause.) Re-posts are only to fix the issue brought up by the judge. Modifying the entire post to save yourself or completely change your character's strategy is an automatic disqualification from the match. (See inactive clause for consequences.) Edits are NOT allowed. An edited post is an automatic disqualification. A brand new "Reply" must be made so there is a full history of the entire fight for judge and other readers.

-Can only use skills that are known IC at the official start of the match. No borrowing from others. No immediate power ups within the match.

-Discussion of non-allowed techniques will vary by challenger and discussed via PM, only.

-Inflammatory, racial, harassing, or abusive language aimed at each other either in the match or in PM will result in an immediate void of the challenge. If challenger, (s)he loses all rights to ever challenge the current Jinchūriki. If host, he loses the match and Bijū given to the challenger.

-In the event that a host is defeated, the new host has the cool-down challenge period time-frame to either accept the special regulations for the tailed beast or completely re-write or alter the special rules. If they do not post their own variant by the beginning of the next challenge, then it is to be assumed that they comply with the previous special regulations.

-If host defeated, allow host to finish up any roleplay that may involve having the beast. Then a reasonable RP will be concluded as to how the beast transferred hands.

Any questions, PM me please.

[Challenge List]:

Match Type: OOC

Zone: Empty Town

Conditions and such have been discussed via PM.
A loud crackle roars in the sky, akin to lightning. Parting the heavens above would be a raging fireball, rocketing towards Earth. A wave of flames would scorch the area 100 feet from the epicenter of the impact, leaving a small crater, looking like a modern Tunguska event. Smoldering debris conceals the visage of someone from the focal point, the only thing visible with the naked eye being abnormally bright  crimson eyes, the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. A tidal wave of sinister chakra erupts from the figure as he calmly steps from ground zero, scanning the area for signs of life. Light from the flames engulfing the area along with the Moon would give a clear picture of the Ghost of the Uchiha himself.

The man is adorned with scarlet armor with multiple metal plates covering his chest, shoulders, and waist atop black body armor. Strapped to his back would be a very powerful Gunbai attached to a chain that leads to a deadly sharp kusarigama, drenched in the poisonous saliva of his Komodo Dragons. Cracks appear to cover his attire and his flesh, indicating that Madara had long since passed on and is using a shell that thanks to the Impure Resurrection, allows him to engage in battles he once so loved. He is on a mission to capture the Six Tails, but he figures he might as well drag it out and maybe find the thrill his original body once experience.

His opponent's Gold Dust was quite effective at momentarily shielding him from the blinding light and heat, however he would unknowingly set himself up by covering himself with the metal. Due to the rigid molecules in gold, the intense sound would have an easier time traveling to Kamui, especially due to the heat around him, exciting the nearby molecules virtually putting himself in a condensed pocket for the sound to overload his Enhanced Senses. Top it off with the fact he did not make his covering Sound Proof, it would make the result all the more inevitable.

If this works as suspected, his opponent should lose concentration on his Gold Dust, leaving him unable to formulate the reflective  mirror he so desired and leaving his head exposed for a direct hit that continues to pour on and get even hotter. If successful, the six Narutos in the forefront would immediately form a multitude of Adamantine Sealing Chains that would burrow underground and go in the air in an attempt to form a Chakra Chains Barrier, extending 200 yards around everyone in order to force Kamui to fight up close and personal if he somehow survives the first strike.


However, if this scenario doesn't play out and Kamui is somehow unaffected by the sound, continuing with his actions of reflecting Naruto's attack, he would end up destroying six clones. Thanks to his copycats being in-front of him when the beam struck, it would leave a slight delay, but enough for Naruto to receive the knowledge of an incredibly hot sensation thanks to clones, prompting him to utilize the Flying Thunder God in order to teleport himself and his remaining clones to one of the knives thrown earlier, this one in the distant left while there remains one in the distant right. Because the reflecting of Naruto's attack and the Gold Spikes happening simultaneously as his opponent intended, they would effectively avoid them as well.

Naruto would look at his arms,
"That was close.." He says with a bit of smile at his  face. His arms would be lightly burned by the beam, searing off the sleeves of the original's jumpsuit. The Uzumaki was both impressed and slightly fearful that his opponent could so simply be so devastating with a bit of ingenuity. "You guys form the barrier, Gamakichi take two with you and prepare the Sages with that jutsu!"  This prompts all but two of his remaining clones to try to form the exact same barrier as the first scenario while Gamakichi takes one of Naruto's marked weapons before returning to Myoboku in a puff of smoke. Two clones follow suit, via teleportation where they would immediately begin to gather Natural Energy in the toad haven.

Kamui would act accordingly when he saw that his elemental technique was absorbed and subsequently sent back him with slight delay. "Oho? You can use that technique as well or is that something else entirely?" Kamui was speaking of the usage of the formula seal used to instantly teleport any marked object to that designated location and was astonished to see that there were others out there that had intricate knowledge of it. Naruto might've thought he caught Kamui off-guard with his sudden redirection of former's technique, however the former Kage was able to see through the attack with ease and could see that each of the kunai knives had an explosive payload that were tied to each of them; this was all thanks to his enhanced sense of perception granted by his Slug Sage Mode.

Kamui clapped his hands and added some of his magnetic chakra into the ground, using the former gold weights as a conduit for his next technique. Once his magnetic chakra touched those gold weights, the weights would break down into the material that were made out of; gold dust. This diamagnetic gold dust would start attracting every minuscule speck of gold flakes that happened to be buried deep in the ground below them and would add onto his own repertoire of gold dust that he currently had with him. Kamui extended his left palm outward and clenched his hand into a fist, triggering the manifestation of a thick wall of gold dust that would immediately form a thick protective dome around his body; shielding him from the initial flash bang and downburst that was directed at him.

"This is getting slightly annoying." Kamui muttered as the focused beam of light started baring down on his location, hitting the outer layer of gold dust without much repercussions to his surroundings inside the dome. Gold has a melting point of about 1,948F and with the increasing temperature of the beam of sunlight, it would be wise for him to act accordingly to prevent the heat from building up and destroying his protective dome. Gold is also highly reflective of both light and heat, which meant that he could turn this attack against Naruto with some more gold sand manipulation.

"Enough playing around." Kamui said as the outer layer of gold dust that formed the thick protective barrier around him would start to take shape into a large reflective disc that resembled a large circular mirror. Once the beam of light started hitting the reflective surface area of the gold dust that made up the large disc, the reflective surface would allow him to redirect the concentrated beam of sunlight back at the clones. If he was lucky enough with his endeavors, this redirection of this concentrated beam of light would happen so suddenly that there would be no time to avoid this sudden counter-attack.

"I can't take no chances against someone like you." Kamui decided to manipulate some of the remaining gold dust that he wasn't using in the golden reflective disc above him into a multitude of gold spikes that levitated in front of him. Kamui extended his palm outwards and sent the barrage of gold spikes towards the clones with astonishing pace, hopefully catching them off guard with the impeccable timing of this simultaneous assault. Meanwhile up in the skies, the drones were idly hovering in the air and were watching the events unfold in front of them. These drones were gathering battle data for now and were analyzing the data in an encrypted network that was directly connected to C.A.I.N.

The doppelgangers look in surprise at their opponent's transmutation, connecting the dots to their own similar form, "A Sage?" The original ponders aloud. This would be confirmed as Kamui sends out his Sage Art: Gale Palm towards them, but despite the powerful Senjutsu imbued attack threatening them, the original looks calm. In fact, he seems rather elated as his quick thinking as a tactician comes into play, "I'll take care of the kunai and activate, some of you get the rest!"

He proceeds to jump into the air, forming a single handed kata while 6 of the clones standing in the forefront of the wind extend out both their hands in a clawed defensive position. Quickly activating the seal upon the palms of the Naruto's hands, they would utilize both the Advanced Element Sealing Method and Advanced Element Unsealing Method. Vapors escape the seal and would draw the wind into it, sealing a portion of it in each seal.  Immediately following they would unseal the jutsu, sending it back at Kamui with same force and momentum, knocking the debris back towards him as well. Knowing the bombs would eventually detonate from one of them, the Narutos prepare by focusing a small amount of Fuuton chakra in their inner ears.

There is however a slight pause between the Sealing and Unsealing, which wouldn't bode well for the clones seeing as they would be unable to absorb the kunai, this would be where the original comes in. Since the knives are marked, Naruto would simply use Hiraishin to teleport the marked kunai to another that he throws towards Kamui, redirecting them back on their original course towards the Kage. Soon he detonates the bombs as planned, but they wouldn't be the ordinary incendiary sort. Intense blinding light and sound erupt from them, powerful enough to even overload Enhanced Senses. The sound and light threaten to temporarily blind and paralyze his opponent, the fuuton chakra channeled by the clones prevent sound from entering momentarily, but still temporarily deaf and blind.

The original Naruto, who blinked at the last second, prevented himself from going blind. Lastly, in conjunction with the devastating light, sound, and wind, Naruto would control his airborne disc with his chakra and use it akin to a giant Fresnel Lens, rapidly absorbing rays and harnessing the power of the sun into a singular beam of intense heat. This attack would be extremely difficult if not impossible to evade if Kamui is caught by the sound, light, and wind, especially considering the Uzumaki is using Nature to his advantage, leaving no chakra to sense the impending doom.

If contact is made, Kamui's head is pelted by a fire blast of 500 degrees, getting hotter as time goes on, but a little more than doubling the moment it comes in contact with his Wind Aura, setting his opponent ablaze at over 1000 degrees in a massive inferno of destruction. If successful, Naruto's combatant is vision-less and disabled as hes cut through by kunai, struck by his own wind, and turned into a mausoleum of conflagration.

"Battle has engaged, activate protocol 1451." Kamui said as he witness the young man change his demeanor and started to go on the offensive. A glowing teal light could be seen on the abdomen of the cybernetic suit as the command process for gathering natural energy from around him had begun. As this process started, some markings would start appearing on his face, the irises in both his eye turned into a different pigment and both of his pupils became dilated. This unique ability that was built into the cybernetic suit allowed him to passively gather natural energy while he was on the move, making it far much easier to enter his transformation and extend the duration of his Slug Slug Mode for as long as the device was active.

"Laughable." Kamui muttered as his senses were greatly augmented through his Slug Sage Mode, allowing him to sweep his surroundings with far greater accuracy than he could previously gauge. Thankfully through his sensory prowess as a Sage, the gathering of chakra was easily sensed within a moment's notice and the location of that condensed chakra lens was deeply ingrained into the back his mind. Now this man wasn't foolish enough to look upwards towards that lens, so instead of looking at the source of chakra emanating from that technique, he kept his wits about him and turned his attention towards the clones that were performing the technique themselves. What immediately caught his attention was the brandishing of the kunai knives by each respective clones and each knives that were thrown were tracked down by their current path of trajectory. Now he was not willing to take any chances from here on out upon seeing their intent on impaling him with those blades and decided to retaliate with a Sage Art technique.
"Ha! You'll have to do better than that! Senpo! Reppūshō!" Kamui formed a series of three one-handed handseals in rapid succession, after which he started gathering his wind-natured chakras around his body in the form of an aura and made a sweeping motion with his left arm that was similar to a back-hand slap. The chakra aura would immediately form into an extension of his own body and the knives that were thrown at him would suddenly have their original trajectory thrown off-course in mid-air by a surprise downburst; effectively sending the weapons flying backwards in multiple directions. However this sudden powerful gust of wind wouldn't just stop at the kunai knives, in fact each clone would feel the downburst winds created from the technique itself. This meant that if these clones of Naruto were not careful enough, this technique would throw them into turmoil and possibly dispatch some of the clones with the debris gathered from the initial downburst gust that was sent in their direction.

"You're not even taking this seriously, ya know? If you really wanted to take care of that damned fox's vessel, you would break out that technique and give him a taste of what you can really do!" Kamui heard the Shukaku speak to him for a split-moment from within the bowels of his mind with such fervor and acknowledge that in the near future that he would have to break out that technique. "It will have to wait until the moment is right for me, for now I would like to conserve my energy for as long as I possibly can and focus on making this guy waste his chakra with these damn shadow clones. Besides, I still have some other tools that I haven't even broke out yet and those drones are still in the air on stand-by mode until I activate their battle protocol." The voice of the Shodaime responded back to the Shukaku, since he was too busy with his current fight to make his normal appearance within the mental realm that beast resided in and decided to resort to using his mental link with the Shukaku in order to have this inner mental conversation.
