Masahiko stood at Knoha’s training ground, while his face was dead serious.
In front Masahiko is Jiraiya, Tsunade, and the three Uzumaki young men.
“Well, you’ve improved a lot through training these days…”
“What improvement?” Jiraiya interrupted Masahiko. Masahiko hasn’t done anything yet to him, but cold stares of his training mates made him startle.
Masahiko shook his head, “I thought that your efforts during these days will be enough… in fact, you all should be ranked as a Jonin, so you should be happy about that.”
“I’m a Jonin, too! Sure enough… Ouch!”
Tsunade swiftly delivered a blow to Jiraiya, and finally, the field became quiet.
Masahiko shook his head with a sigh as he watched Jiraiya limping back to his spot, not daring to even breathe.
“As I was saying, although your strength is good, you all know that this isn’t a normal exam, and you probably know that you will face strong opponents.”
Jiraiya, on the side, started mumbling, “I’m not afraid of any opponent…” But a quick glance from Tsunade made him suffocate.
The three Uzumaki Shinobi didn’t make any remark at all, they actually didn’t know much about this Exam.
Tsunade pondered, “I heard from Second Grandpa, that these people are very strong.”
Masahiko was about to say something… but the title Second Grandpa threw his thoughts a bit off.
“Okay, I will give you a brief introduction. There’s a guy from the Mist Village, his name is Hangetsu Hozuki. He has a Kekkei Genkai, which is the Hydrification technique. It basically makes him immune to any physical attacks.”
“There are also the three Shinobis from Sunagakure. The red-haired boy and the brunette girl are puppet masters, but you don’t have to worry about them. You just need to fight them separately, they’re stronger when they combine their techniques. However, pay attention to their poison techniques. The third one is the boy with dark blue hair, and he’s their winning card. He’s the owner of a Kekkei Genkai that can control iron sand and magnet release.”
“By manipulating the iron sand with the magnet release, he can generate a huge attack force” Masahiko paused for a moment, “To be honest, I don’t see a way for you to win.”
“Great Elder, we will work harder!”
Masahiko scratched his head, feeling that these boys seem to be a bit brainwashed.
“I will beat him if I ever encountered him!” After holding it for so long, Jiraiya couldn’t help but shout.
This time Tsunade ignored him, but she looked a little concerned, “Great Grandpa, you said that there’s no chance for us to win now, right? What about two months from now?”
Masahiko got stunned for a moment, then he smiled, whispering, “Finally someone using his head.”
“Tsunade’s question is very good. So next, we’re gonna try something else. Say, what kind of techniques you want to learn?”
Masahiko blurted out, and the admiring he for Tsunade a moment ago suddenly disappeared.
“Tsunade, I already taught you enough of that.”
“Old Devil, can you teach me the trick to make other people fly?” Jiraiya looked excited he was obviously interested in Masahiko’s technique.
“You can’t learn it.” Masahiko shook his head while smiling helplessly. That skill really can’t be taught to anyone.
“How do you know if you don’t try…” Jiraiya whispered.
“Okay, how about you three?”
“We will learn whatever the great elder is willing to teach us!” They replied unanimously.
“Yuriko, what have you done to these kids…”
“Alright, I will decide for you three.”
“Jiraiya and Tsunade, go to Mito and wait for me. I will teach you some good techniques.”
“Go to grandma?” Tsunade was stunned, then nodded, “Let go, idiot!”
Jiraiya quickly followed her, then Masahiko looked at the remaining three kids.
“Then, three of you, I will teach you a special Fuinjutsu from our clan. We still have two months, so it’s up to you to master it before the deadline…”
After teaching the three Uzumaki kids, Masahiko stayed there for a while and watched them practice, he didn’t go immediately to Mito’s but went to another training ground in Konoha.
The moment he arrived, he saw Kenichiro there training Dai hard, so he smiled and waved his hand at them.
Masahiko frowned, what did he just call him?!
Looking at Dai’s uncle-face, Masahiko hesitated a bit, then said nervously, “J-Just call me, Grandpa…”
After saying it, Masahiko felt embarrassed, but then he remembered that he was standing before the most two unashamed people in Konoha.
“Dai, I came for you this time. You will participate in the Joint Ninja Exam two months from now, and I thought of giving you something good… no, lend you!”
Masahiko took a scroll out from arm sleeves, then with some distress, he handed it to Dai.
Watching him turning it over and over, not knowing how to open it, Masahiko sighed helplessly.
“Kenichiro, teach him how to use it…”
Fortunately, even though Kenichiro hasn’t seen this kind of scroll in years, he still could open it.
A handgun appeared in Dai’s hands, then Masahiko smiled, and said, “This handgun is made by Yuna. It releases a very powerful shout when you inject your Chakra into it. However, the recoil is lethal, don’t use it without opening the Hachimon Tonkou.”
Kenichiro froze for a moment, “But, Sensei, Dai doesn’t have any Chakra.”
“None?” Masahiko was surprised. Masahiko just thought that Dai talent is just not good for Ninjutsu; he didn’t expect him not to have Chakra.
“This was the case for Gai… if he has no chakra, how did he open the Eight Gates in the first place.”
“Dai, open the First Gate, I want to check something.”
After opening the Gate, Masahiko got stunned. In his perception, even when Dai opened the First Gate, he still didn’t have any chakra circulating in his body. It just lifts the physical restriction from his body.
“This is really amazing! There’s no trace of Chakra, and you can still practice to such a point. No wonder that using the Eight Gates alone, you managed to kill four of the Seven Legendary Swordsmen of the Mist…”
Masahiko sighed, then suddenly felt that it was for the better, Dai didn’t need to use any “cheats” he was strong already.
“Forget it.” Masahiko took the handgun away. “Continue your hard work.”
The two men watching Masahiko as he walked away, not knowing why Masahiko changed his mind so quickly.
On the way to Mito’s house, Masahiko suddenly felt bad to cheat these kids before the Exam.
“However, the things I’m gonna give Tsunade and Jiraiya will definitely help them in the future. I’m just gonna quick things up.”
After a while, an amazing Chakra fluctuation erupted from Mito’s house. Ordinary people couldn’t feel it. But it took the attention of the powerful ones inside Konoha.
“This is…” Startled in the Hokage Building, “Is this Grandpa’s “Cheat”?
After about half an hour, the chakra fluctuation in Mito’s house has finally dissipated.
Aside, Tsunade and Jiraiya, who were sitting cross-legged gathering their Chakra, Masahiko, and Mito, looked at them with a smile.
On Tsunade’s forehead, a diamond-shaped mark was formed, which was the Yin Seal mark, Mito sealed one-third of Masahiko’s Chakra inside Tsunade’s body, so temporarily she had a vast amount of Chakra. This will also help her to learn the Yin Seal in the future.
Jiraiya had an Eight Trigram seal in his stomach, which contain some of Masahiko’s Senjutsu Chakra, which will allow Jiraiya to turn into Sage Mode for around five minutes.
“This time, when they take the Exam, these two kids will be more powerful. I think that they have almost caught up with Orochimaru.” Mito said with a smile.
Masahiko nodded, “#Destructive-Enthusiasm.” Masahiko then waved his hand, “I hope they can win…”
