CHAPTER 32: A TWISTED FEUDAL FAIRYTALE
Arc 2 Broken Mirror - Part 7
A man runs with a pack of wolves through the forests, generating wind behind him. The man stands five feet seven with light blue eyes and black hair done in a ponytail. He’s dressed in blue chest armor with a kilt made of wolf fur. He also has shoulder guards, armbands, and shin guards made of wolf fur. The reason for the fur is that he is Koga, leader of the wolf demon tribe.
He has faced many evils that have caused many interactions with Inuyasha, Kagome, and the rest. It was his wolves that killed Rin forcing Sesshomaru to resurrect her and Koga kidnapped Kagome hoping to use her to find more shards of the shikon no tama (Jewel of Four Souls). Inuyasha destroyed Koga’s enemies the Birds of Paradise, and Koga tried to kill Inuyasha thinking he slaughtered his people (wolves), until he learned Kagura killed them under Naraku’s orders. He hunted Naraku separate from Sesshomaru’s group and Inuyasha’s group, but in the end the loss of his own shards reduced his powers and he had to give up the hunt to others.
Suddenly, there is a monstrous howl and a howling wind begins to blow. Koga watches as a mountain sacred to the wolves shatters and a black tornado rises in the sky. The tornado grows, and then disperses to show an immense black wolf with silky silver-gray fur around the ankles, tail, and neck. It also has sharp claws and fangs the color of silver, and irises like silvery moons surrounded by black sclera. The immense wolf howls again and it’s even louder than before. A more powerful wind blows across the land tearing up trees and rocks into debris in the air.
Lang Gui was a Chinese wolf daiyoukai who migrated to Japan millennia ago. He is the ultimate ancestor of all okami - wolf youkai in Japan. He was badly injured in a fight with a rival daiyoukai and died after passing his knowledge to the Elders. Koga learned of Lang Gui when he faced the Elder Spirits to receive the youkai weapon Goraishi. Now he faces the long dead Alpha of Alphas, who is emitting a Jyaki (evil aura) so powerful that the sky is turning dark and stormy from the disruptions.
The evil spreading across Japan has resurrected him as a corrupted spirit from the graveyard of Koga’s clan. He has the power to transform into a powerful whirlwind, a form that makes him immune to physical attacks and his howls produce hurricane force winds. Koga also knows that canine daiyoukai of that size possess immense strength, durability, and the ability to walk on air, which combined with their speed allows for flight.
“This is not good.”
Koga’s two lieutenants Ginta and Hakkaku stand behind him, pale as ghosts, shaking like leaves and forming a yellow stain on the rocks
“You're not helping.”
In the center of a dead lake is a castle composed of dark crystal. The Castle is protected by the corrosive liquid shoki (miasma) that has replaced the water and a thick miasma that surrounds the castle like a mist. To those on the dissolving shoreline, the castle has been dark and silent except for a dozen spectral lights coming and going, the traveling forms of youkai. Youkai and those humans who are sensitive to spiritual energy will say something different, as a Jyaki emitted by the castle has been growing stronger and more malignant.
Tonight, things have changed for the worse. A wave of dark energy pulsates from the Castle, across the lake of acidic liquid, and through the surrounding forest. As the dark power washes over the higher animals, they collapse in pain and begin to have seizures. The lesser animals fall to the ground dead and the plant life begins to wither and die. Energy in the form of glowing blue mist streams off the living creatures and flows back towards the castle. Within minutes, the higher animals are lifeless, mummified husks and the dead trees collapse to the dead forest floor.
Deep within the Castle, the Castle Lords stand before the broken seal of the Zodiac and are chanting a very powerful spell.
King Dosei glows with a bright yellow aura that turns everything from his skin to his clothing a golden color. King Dosei’s aura flows into Lady Kinsei’s growing aura. Lady Kinsei’s swirling white aura flows into Lady Suisei’s growing blue/black aura. Lady Suisei’s misty aura flows into Lord Mokusei’s growing blue/green aura. Lord Mokusei’s electric aura flows into Lord Kasei’s burning red aura. That growing aura flame flows into King Dosei’s growing aura. Between the five daiyoukai, there are arcs of lightning, going from Dosei to Suisei, from Suisei to Kasei, from Kasei to Kinsei, from Kinsei to Mokusei, and Mokusei to Dosei. The end result is five burning points forming a circle with a five-pointed star composed lightning between them.
“Nezumi Kai! Ushi Kai! Tora Kai! Usagi Kai! Tatsu Kai! Hebi Kai! Uma Kai! Hitsugi Kai1 Saru Kai! Tori Kai! Inu Kai! Ino Kai! Sheng Xiao BANKAI!!”
The circle of flowing aura burns white before shooting outward in twelve directions. Each stream of energy strikes a seal on the ground, picturing an animal of the Chinese Zodiac.
Dark blue water explodes from the first seal and takes the form of a giant rat, which glows with an inner light. Tiny particles of dust appear and fuse together to form bones. The bones are covered by gel which becomes flesh and skin covered in silky black fur. The immense rat also has silver nails and fangs, and black eyes with silver sclera.
The second seal explodes into a pillar of water that then takes the form of a giant ox composed of ice. The ice glows with an inner light that makes it iridescent. Slowly, the ice begins to morph into flesh and bone. The end result resembles a cross between an ox and water buffalo.
The third seal breaks as a thousand plants burst from the ground. The roots, vines, and branches weave themselves together into the form of a predatory feline. Lightning crawls across the wooden statue burning away the layer of plant matter to reveal an immense tiger with white fur and blue eyes.
The fourth seal breaks with a thousand plants, which form an immense pod. The pod opens like a flower to reveal an immense rabbit in its green center surrounded by blue petals. The rabbit awakens and stretches like a large cat.
The fifth seal shatters and a mass of vines and roots rises from the earth, like an immense serpent. The serpent grows arms and legs, before lightning burns away the wood to reveal a dragon. The huge dragon is blue-green with a mane of white hair, glowing green eyes, and three iron claws on each hand and foot.
The sixth seal explodes into dark crimson flames, which flows in a stream before falling part into a shower of sparks. As the flame are extinguished, an immense red and black snake is revealed with bronze fangs and glowing red eyes.
The seventh seal explodes into dark crimson flames, which then take the form of a stallion. Ash fuses together to form bone and fiery ashes become flesh, like a body being cremated in reverse and at high speed. When the flames die down, the immense horse stands there with a dark crimson hide, black mane and tail, bronze horse shoes on his black hooves, and burning eyes
The eighth seal is consumed by bright red flames, which are then extinguished to reveal a giant ram with red eyes, long ash grey fur and polished bronze horns.
The ninth seal is shattered by a thousand thin spikes of silvery metal. The metal spikes bend and flow together into a spherical mass of metal, which then molds itself into a metal monkey. The monkey is covered in a white light and when the lights fade, there is a giant organic monkey with white fur, white skin, and pupil-less iris-less white eyes.
The tenth seal is shattered by blades of dark silver metal, which twist together and then shatter into dust. As the dust clears, a giant rooster is revealed with white feathers, long tail feathers, and glowing white eyes.
The eleventh seal is broken by a metal wolf-dog. The dog changes color as metal becomes white fur, black claws, and white fangs. The eyes don’t change much, with only a white sclera appearing leaving pupil-less silver eyes.
The twelfth seal is broken when a fierce wind explodes from ground, carrying a silver powder. The powder forms a large mass which takes the form of a giant boar. The immense boar has tusks like an elephant and is the same size.
Suddenly, there is a cry of pain. The Hunters - Lady Mae, Tama, Kurando, and Morinji- and the Regalia -
Amaterasu, Tsukiyomi, and Susanno- watch as Kagura falls to her knees holding her chest. Glowing kanji appear in the air around her torso. The kanji pulsate faster and faster, glowing brighter and brighter, before shattering into vanishing particles of lights. She grips the cloth above her heart, as she feels it beating in her chest.
“We do not need to make false promises, Kagura of the Wind. It is a sign of weakness,” says Lady Kinsei. “You are free as the wind. I suggest you fly far away.”
Kagura doesn’t need another hint. She draws a feather from her hair and causes it to grow as big as a canoe. She jumps on the feather, which flies out a window and rises into the dark sky.
“As for you Hunters and Regalia,” says King Dosei, his voice filled with pure power and authority. “The Heroes have served their purpose. Hunt them down and destroy them!”
Inuyasha and his family have returned home to find a nightmare. The village he and his wife raised their children in, the same village their friends raised their children in, has been burnt to the ground. Every house has been reduced to ashes and burnt logs. The buildings containing food and other resources have been destroyed. Every personal item from family treasures to children’s toys has been destroyed. All that remains of their neighbors are charred bones.
Inuyasha grips his sword in rage, while tears fall from Kagome’s eyes. Sango covers his mouth as she remembers when Naraku destroyed her village. Miroku holds Sango, while Shippo stands next to a growling Kilala. The children and Digimon stand next to their parents trying to hold back their own tears.
The Scourge, Digidestined, Ninja, and their Digimon are near them scanning the field for their enemies.
Naruto runs over to Iruka and Shizune, who walk out of the forest with many wounds covered by bandages.
“Ite.. I’m okay Naruto. Shizune is a great medic nin,” says Iruka. “A group of seven youkai attacked the village. They killed everyone within minutes, then set fire to everything. They hurt us bad, but I think they spared us for some reason. I don’t know why.”
“We needed the bait.”
The group turns to see seven youkai standing on a hill.
The first is a fat brown tanuki with gold decorated brown monk's robes and the traditional cone shaped hat. He carries a sack over his shoulder, a large sake bottle in one hand and a handful of papers in the other hand. Most Tanuki have cunning or jolly looks on their faces, but this one looks almost feral. He looks like a vicious wolverine about to drop on a much larger prey.
The second is neko-youkai resembling a young woman with deep blue eyes, light skin, and black hair. She has two black cat ears hidden by the two ponytails on the sides of her head and polished black nails on her fingers. She also has a long black cat tail that splits into two disguised as a belt. She wears a dark blue kimono with black flowers on it and would look very much like a noblewoman if not for her ears and tails. The feline eyes of the woman narrow at the heroes to reveal oval pupils.
The third is a very tall, muscular man with black hair. He’s dressed in heavy red-brown armor with iron pauldrons resembling the faces of demons. He also wears metal bracers and armored boots. His unique weapons of choice are Deer Horn Knives, also known as crescent moon knives, specialized Chinese bladed weapons consisting of two steel crescents crossing. As he breathes, steam can be seen coming from his mouth and nose.
The fourth is a daiyoukai female kitsune. She takes the form of a beautiful red headed woman with brown eyes. She has pointed ears, red daiyoukai marking on the sides of her face, and nine fluffy red fox tails wrapped around her like boa. She wears kimono striped with various shades of red that combined with her tails looks like a fur-rimmed coat. At her side is a wakizashi with a black bone handle and a fifty centimeter (20 inches) blade in a polished black wooden saya (scabbard). The aura around her reminds Inuyasha of his half-brother Sesshomaru.
The fifth is a beautiful woman with pale skin and fiery red hair. She wears a fine kimono of red, yellow, and orange. In her hands is a round bronze mirror with a polished silver face and eight hands sculpted around the edge. She emits a red-gold aura that makes her look like the sun is behind her and the ground beneath her slowly burns.
The sixth is a handsome man wearing fine black clothing. He wears a necklace of comma-shaped beads known as Magatama, representing the souls of the dead. He also has a black crescent moon on his forehead like a mark of demon nobility. His silvery eyes glow gold like the full moon and his black sclera are like a night sky without stars.
The seventh is a fierce-looking warrior in samurai armor. He wields a Tsurugi, an ancient type of Japanese straight sword, and a jug of sake. The man’s evil aura is so intense that the air around him ripples and warps like the dark clouds of a violent hurricane. A fierce wind blows as if worshipping him and the lightning crawls across his body.
“Let’s Do This!”
Mae tosses a spherical crystal into the air toward the group. As the crystal falls it glows blue, then there is an explosion of light.
Mae faces Inuyasha’s original team and the children Inuken and Midori with their Digimon Akitamon and Garyuumon. The world around them has shifted colors and the others have vanished.
“This is part of the astral plane. Within the warps of King Dosei’s crystal, you are separated from each other. United you stand, divided I conquer!”“WIND SCAR!”
Inuyasha swings his tessaiga and releases a wave of destructive energy, but Mae moves so fast she becomes a crimson blur and avoids the attack. She gets close to Inuyasha and delivers an upper cut that knocks the hanyou into the air. She then spins and avoids the first attack of Sango’s Hirakotsu, then like a dancer avoids Kagome’s sacred arrow. As Hiraikotsu comes back for a second attack, she draws Vixen and slices the demon bone boomerang in half
Kilala in her giant saber-toothed cat form charges at the kitsune, but the daiyoukai avoids two charges with insane ease, then delivers a simultaneous knee to the chest and blow to the back of the head. The attack by a human would kill a large dog, but the powerful blows of the daiyoukai leave the nekomata badly injured on the ground.
Inuyasha charges with his sword, but Mae moves like a phantom dancer avoiding every attack.“KONGOSOHA!”
Inuyasha swings his demon sword and releases a barrage of diamond shards. His hope is that the glowing red shards will pierce the astral trap, which he believes is the reason that Mae is dominating the battle field. Mae avoids the shards and they disappear into the darkness. A second later, the shards appear behind the group and nearly impale Inuyasha and his family.
“The only way out of an astral trap is to defeat or kill its creator,” says Mae. “Attacking the trap means you attack yourself.”
“Then I’ll just have to kill you,” says Inuyasha, as his sword turns black.
“I don’t think so,” says Mae with a deadly whisper, less than a meter from Inuyasha and her sword mesunokitsune drawn. “Konkon!”
Inuyasha’s world implodes as his senses are overloaded by the sound of the fox’s demon sword. Inuyasha is thrown back by the shockwave and hits the ground unconscious and bleeding from his nose and ears. Kilala and Shippo also fall to the ground from the sound generated by the blade.
Inuyasha’s miko wife Kagome Higurashi fires three holy arrows at Mae. The first of the three arrows is direct, while the other two are close to where Kagome predicts she will move to. Mae thrusts her hand and a burst of wind deflects the arrows, causing them to loss their pink glow and fall to the ground as normal arrows. She then points her palm at Kagome and a shockwave sends Kagome flying through the air, knocking over Miroku and Sango in the process. “GRAND HOWL!”
Mae avoids the blast of wind and energy from Akitamon, then twists in the air to avoid the swirling vortex of Garyuumon’s attack. Mae lands on her feet in a crouched position, only for Akitamon to hit her like a battering ram and Garyuumon to strike her with blades of wind. Instead of blood, red sakura petals flow from her wounds. Then her entire body dissolves into petals that are blown away by a faint wind.
“Genjutsu? Bunshin?” (Illusion technique? Clone?)
Mae appears on a burnt pole as the illusion hiding her dissolves into another cloud of illusion cherry blossoms. She raises her demon sword and smiles like only a kitsune can, then calls out a single phrase.“Konkon Konpaku!”
Kurando faces Shinju and Mashira, with their Digimon Rademon and Ginzarumon, respectively. “AWAGAN!”
Rademon opens fire with jets of explosive bubbles, but Kurando moves his Deer Horn Knives in a pattern. The energy of each bubble is absorbed causing each one to pop into harmless bursts of water“BAKUHADODAN!”
Ginzarumon fires a huge sphere of golden energy at Kurando, but the stoic fighter catches the sphere with his blades. Instead of exploding, the sphere pulsates and shrinks as energy streams into Kurando. Finally, the sphere implodes completely, leaving Kurando unharmed.“AOMUCHI!”
Rademon generates whips composed of blue water that fail to cut Kurando, but do manage to wrap around his right wrist. Ginzarumon generates his staff, extends it several meters, then brings it down to strike Kurando, only for the servant of the Castle Lords to catch the staff between his fingers. Kurando swings his right arm, pulling Rademon off her feet into the air. He swings the Digimon like a flail hitting Ginzarumon, before smashing her into the ground hard enough to create a crater.
Ginzarumaru, who lost his hold on his staff when Rademon struck him, can only watch as it dissolves into lights as the stoic youkai absorbs its energy.
Hitomi and Miyatsu with their Digimon Shiunmon and TenKishimon are fighting Necromancer Tama. The problem is that Tama is sadistic and never fights one on one.
Tama summons a dozen skeletons and half a dozen zombies to attack the children.“Makaze!”
Shiunmon races past the undead and Tama at extremely high speed, slicing them with his wing tips and blades of wind. The skeletons shatter as their heads are removed and the zombies collapse without their heads. Tama falls to the ground decapitated, only for her to morph into another zombie
Shiunmon is confused, until he hears Hitomi’s cry of pain. He turns and sees Hitomi on the ground with deep cuts on her back and Tama standing over the girl with a bloody clawed hand.“You bitch! RAIUN!”
Shiunmon generates black clouds from his body, which then fire bolts of lightning at Tama. Tama is struck and explodes into thousands of bone fragments, revealing she was an animated skeleton under an illusion. Shiunmon then cries out as a blade pierces his shoulder and he turns to see the floating arm of a skeleton and the dozen skeletons reassembling themselves, their broken and shattered bones fusing back together.
A mass of red-purple worms extends from the necks of the zombies and dig into the necks of their heads, before pulling the head back on to the body. The rotting corpses then slowly rise to their feet again“KANMON!”
Miyatsu runs to help Hitomi, while TenKishimon generates a glowing gateway. TenKishimon directs the gateway so each zombie and skeleton passes through it, like catching fish or butterflies with a hoop net. As each undead creature passes through the gate, they are purified of Tama’s power and collapse back into death. The skeletons crumble to dust in the air, while the zombies either dissolve into rot and earth, or crumble into clouds of ash.
Suddenly, a mass of red-purple worms explodes from the ground and wraps around TenKishimon, before they violently explode creating a burst of green flames.
Morinji drinks more of his sake, then releases a stream of fire from his mouth. KuroKishimon is not affected by the flames, but needs to protect Akane from the heat. Menou is protected by KonKishimon, who uses a dark purple shield. “Ennetsujigoku!”
(Flames of Hell)
The demonic KuroKishimon releases a wave of fire and destructive energy from his halberd only for Morinji to explode into a cloud of mud and leaves. The real Tanuki rises from the ground drinking from his now warm sake; he then releases a stream of mist from his mouth. The mist smelling of alcohol soon covers the area and prevents the children and Digimon from seeing more than half a meter in front of them.
KuroKishimon watches for his target, when his flames suddenly surge and he’s caught in an explosion that weakens him. He releases a burst of fire and energy from his halberd, only for the mist to ignite and manipulate his attack. The attack is manipulated into a loop before hitting KuroKishimon in the chest.“Tate no Shikon!”
(Four Soul Shield)
KonKishimon’s shield blocks an attack, purifying the dark aura and releasing its own holy attack of equal power. The shield absorbs the youki in the mist and releases a holy aura that disperses the mist. Morinji stands far from the four, who rush towards each other.
“Kuro-nissan, are you alright?”
KuroKishimon doesn’t respond, instead he tries to cleave his brother in half with his halberd, scaring Menou and Akane. On KuroKishimon’s burnt back is a black ofuda, which is glowing with an evil purple aura.
Amaterasu holds her mirror and glows with a fiery crimson light. The crimson aura flows into the mirror, causing its silvery reflective surface to glow white. “DOUBLE IMPACT!”
Blaze fires his shotguns at Amaterasu, but the blasts vanish when they hit a translucent wall of crimson light. The youkai goddess of the sun chants an incantation and the wall flows into the mirror. The mirror then flashes and fires a dozen copies of the double impact attack. Blaze and Liltha are badly injured and Gabriel falls from the sky as one blast pierces his feathery wing.
Amaterasu generates fiery red birds from her immense aura, which flows into the mirror then explodes outward in the form of a pack of giant wolves composed of fire. Angel pierces the first wolf with a chidori-like attack, but badly burns his right arm in the process. Spike slices through the second with his sword. Drusilla’s ice arrow causes the third fire wolf to explode into smoke. Kakashi protects Naruto, Sakura, and Sai using a powerful water attack to wipe out another three wolves and Biju-Digimon Gohan wipes out the remaining six with his aura of destruction.
Amaterasu chants and particles of white light are emitted by her crimson aura. At the same time, the surface of the mirror absorbs the particles of light and glows bright like the surface of the sun. She raises her mirror and it emits a powerful red light and as she moves like a dancer, the red light washes over the field of battle. Everything the red light touches bursts into flames. Plants and leaves explode into steam and flame, rocks are scorched, and when the red light strikes the shinobi they are covered in flames.
If the Scourge members were still normal vampires they would have been reduced to ash in seconds. Instead, Angel falls to the ground with a badly burnt coat, Spike is almost completely unharmed except for a few burns on his face, and Drusilla is unharmed except for damage to her priestess robes.
The clothing of Team Seven is badly damaged with first and second degree burns on the exposed skin, which means that Sai is injured the most and Kakashi is hurt the least. Sakura’s medic ninja skills cause her burns to heal and Naruto’s regenerative powers are still strong even with the Kyubi no Kitsune removed from his body.
Amaterasu chants a different incantation and the mirror pointed into the air fires tens of thousands of high speed bursts of flame, like arrows composed of fire. The arrows shot into the sky, then descend on the heroes.
Tsuhiyomi faces three teams of Ninja and their Digimon Partners. He faces Teams Light and Reptile, and the two Kumo (Cloud) Jinchuriki Kira Hachi and Yugito Nii with their partners.
Kira Hachi and his Ushionimon Taurus appear behind him with their swords drawn. A split second later and the servant of the Castle Lords is sliced to pierces. The pierces don’t bleed crimson as they fall; instead they bleed water and become water as they hit the ground. The water causes the ground to become muddy, but then the ground around the droplets also turns to mud. Soon, the ground beneath the two swordsmen has become a muddy swamp causing the rapper and partner to sink to their waists.
The Regalia warrior rises from the ground several meters away, like a corpse rising from a grave. His moon light eyes glow as he inhales deeply, then he opens his mouth and releases a torrent of water from his gullet. The water soon floods the battleground. Hikari and Takeru release their wings and soar into the air with their Digimon Angemon and Angewomon with them. Most of the other humans and Digimon use chakra to walk on the surface of the water, but there are some like GeoGreymon and Leona who can’t use the technique.
Tsukuyomi stands on the surface of the water and to the shock of his enemies is going through hand signs like a ninja. Tsukuyomi rams his palm on the surface of the water and the surface for a hundred meter radius explodes upward into a hundred drills of water. The water drills are stronger than steel and when the ninja and Digimon get too close the water cuts them like knives
Tsukiyomi looks at the Angels in the sky and releases a stream of water from his mouth. The stream misses the angels and explodes a hundred meters above them. The rain that falls cuts the angels like steel needles and finally causes them to fall out of the sky.
Susanno is covered in sand, which then implodes crushing him like a grape. The problem is that his remains dissolve into smoke and ash, which means he was some sort of doppelganger/clone. The real Susanno appears from a cloud of smoke with his sword glowing with white flames. As he moves his sword, the flame blade extends into a fiery whip that strikes Gaara a dozen times and sends the former Kazekage flying back. He’s not injured, but the sand armor that covers his skin is melted in places. This means that his body now has several scars made of glass.
Temari swings her giant fan and a wave of slicing wind shoots towards the Regalia warrior, enough wind to level half a forest. Susanno swings his sword and creates a wall of superheated air and demonic energy that completely stops Temari’s wind attack. He slashes the sword downward and the wall splits and twists into a horizontal tornado that tears the ground and sends Temari tumbling through the air.
Kankuro’s puppets rescue his sister from the wind, but are damaged by the blades of wind that are mixed with the wind vortex. The new youkai hardwood is stronger than iron armor, but is still cut in a dozen places, meaning if the blades had hit his sister, she would have lost limbs at least.
Takato stands on the shoulders of Guilmon, when Susanno appears in the air with his glowing sword. The whip-like blade of white flame strikes Guilmon, burning him in a dozen places and causing him to collapse in pain. Takato is shocked by Susanno’s lightning and also collapses in pain as he hits the ground hard.
Susanno is hit by two blasts of glowing diamond-like shards from Renamon and Ruki, but his armor stops every one. The armor isn’t even scratched by the shards and he catches their purple flame covered fists with his palms. He then tosses their arms upward, punches both of them several times, and then catches the sword he tosses into the air, ramming the blade into the ground. There is an explosion of heat and flame that sends the kitsune Digimon and partner into the air covered in flames. They skid for several meters as they hit the ground.
Tsunade delivers a punch powerful enough to shatter a mountain to Sussano’s face, but it only manages to cause him to slide for a dozen meters. Tsunade is about to continue her attack, when she falls to her knees shaking.
“I charged my armor with my energy, slug woman.”
Jiraiya rams his bloody palm into the ground and a seal spreads across the ground, but there isn’t an explosion of smoke indicating a successful summoning. He tries again with the same result and Anko notices she can’t summon any snakes.
“The warped space prevents any outside help, be they other warriors or servant creatures.”
Susanno inhales, then releases a thunderous roar. A swirling blast of blue-white flame and lightning explodes from his mouth, warping the air around with its heat. The three Sennin barely avoid the blast and are sent flying by the resulting explosion.
Kiyohime was the daughter of a village headman who fell in love with a priest. The priest named Anjin fell in love with her, but after a time he overcame his passions and refrained from further meetings. Kiyo became furious at the sudden change of heart, and pursued him in rage. He escaped her by crossing a river, but Kiyohime possessed immense rage and knowledge of the darkest arts. She transformed herself into an immense fire-breathing serpent and burned the priest alive inside of the temple’s bell. She was sealed away by the other priests, but she has fed on the spreading evil and broken the seal.
Lord Sesshomaru stands in front of another destroyed shrine on the riverbank. The legendary Kiyohime floats in the sky above, occasionally sending bright fireballs down on the landscape. Each of the large fire balls is hot enough to melt iron in seconds and each blast is powerful enough to level a small building.
She is a huge sea-green snake with a stripped red underside. The serpent also has a white human face like a Noh mask, burning red eyes, and long black hair on her head. The serpent-dragon also has fangs made of iron, the same iron used to create the temple bells.
Kiyohime stares at Sesshomaru and is reminded of the handsome priest Anjin. She screams in rage, then releases a torrent of fire with a temperature of over 3100 Kelvin, enough to vaporize iron and incinerate flesh and bone. The fire washes over the silver haired daiyoukai, but doesn’t do any damage beyond melting the ground around him. As the fires disperse, Sesshomaru grips the hilt of Bakusaiga and with one move draws the blade and releases a wave of destructive power. Enough power to kill a thousand demons strikes Kiyohime and the serpent-dragon resists for a moment before she is blasted into a thousand pierces, which are then incinerated by the energies. Any fragment that survives decomposes into dust in seconds, making sure that the serpent can’t resurrect herself ever again.
Sesshomaru places his sword back in its saya and narrows his eyes. He can sense the closeness of the Castle and the powerful daiyoukai lords, and he knows that their evil power is increasing rapidly.
“This Sesshomaru is not pleased.”
Mae’s transformed mesunokitsune strikes Inuyasha’s tessaiga sending up a shower of sparks. They strike a second time, sending up even more sparks. When their blades collide for the third time there is a shockwave that sends everyone flying.
Mae turns in the air and deflects another of Kagome’s sacred arrows. As she lands, she spins and slashes downward releasing a destructive shockwave from the blade similar to Inuyasha’s wind scar. Inuyasha’s injured and disoriented by the shockwave and is not capable of moving fast enough to save her. As the shockwave strikes Kagome, she is torn to pieces and pieces of a log fall to the ground.
Mae turns as two spinning drills of wind shoot out of the forest towards her. She leaps into the air to avoid the drills, only to encounter of a cloud of poisonous insects. The insects swarm around her in the air, while the two air drills change direction and target her again.
Within the mass of insects, Mae’s eyes glow red and a look of feral rage forms on her face. As the drills draw closer and closer, her body emits a crimson shoki (miasma). The miasma causes all but the most durable insects to die, destroying their bodies like concentrated acid. Mae lets out a cry of rage and her aura explodes into a spherical blast field. The wall of energy pulverizes the remaining insects in less than a second and sends a thunderous shockwave outward. Kiba and Akamaru’s double piercing fang strikes the translucent crimson sphere and sends arcs of red energy and chakra in multiple directions. Seconds later, an unconscious Kiba and Akamaru fall into the forest below.
Hinata jumps as fast as possible and catches both Kiba and the massive Akamaru. Using her chakra to boost her strength, she manages to save the lives of her teammates, then collapses from the strain.“GRAND HOWL!”
Mae turns and uses her sword to block the blast from Akitamon. The sword generates a barrier that block the flow of energy and causes it to disperse around her.“FURYUDAN!”
Mae then has to generate a second barrier from her own body to stop Garyuumon’s attack from the rear. The two barriers strain to stop the destructive power, but eventually both youkai-Digimon hybrids run out of energy. As their attacks end, Mae pushes her barriers outward and disperses them, then becomes a crimson blur. She appears behind Garyuumon and delivers a brutal slash that sends the dragon fang Digimon into Akitamon minus his tail. A howling shockwave from Mae’s sword then sends both into the ground hard enough to create an explosion.
As Inuken and Midori yell for the safety of their partners, Mae appears in front of them and delivers a double blow that sends them flying back at high speed. They fly through several tree branches before smashing into a cliff face hard enough to leave impressions. As they fall out of the impressions, they also leave crimson trails.“CRUSHING FANG!”
Akitamon and Garyuumon use physical attacks trying to get revenge for their partners, but Mae vanishes and appears behind them. She releases another blast of energy that strikes both and sends them into the forest, through a dozen trees before creating craters in the mountains. They fall to the ground covered in arcs of energy and their bodies acting like an old TV covered in static.“Meido Zangetsuha!”
Mae turns at Inuyasha’s enraged attack cry and sees a blade of darkness. The crescent-shaped blade tears her in half and then like a black hole pulls the remains into hell. Inuyasha’s eyes widen as the remains become crimson sakura petals as they are pulled into hell. The real Mae descends with her own sword glowing red and Inuyasha is forced to block with the black Tessaiga. Mae’s blade howls like the winds of a hurricane and vibrates so fast it becomes a blur. It then slices straight through Inuyasha’s demon sword Tessaiga. Inuyasha stares as half his sword falls to the ground, then falls back as blood explodes from his torso.
Mae stands next to him with closed eyes and creepy smile, as blood drips from her own demon sword.
Kurando delivers a hundred rapid strikes to Rademon, each blow powerful enough to take her off her feet and the number causing her float in the air supported by the blows. The final blow creates a shockwave and sends Rademon flying across the battlefield. She strikes a massive boulder and causes it to explode into dust. Shinju notices with horror that her partner’s hard iridescent skin is badly cracked.
Kurando suddenly appears next to Shinju and Mashira, and kicks both of them. This causes the two humans to skid across the earth and collapse in pain from broken ribs. Rademon and Ginzarumon charge at Kurando to save their partners, but Kurando grabs both of them by the throat. The two youkai-Digimon cry out as their energy is drained and their bodies become translucent.
Kurando then lets go, jumps back, and with a wave of his hand summons his deer horn knives back into his grip. The knives are used to block Asuma’s trench knives as he appears in front of Kurando. Kurando doesn’t move an inch from the blow despite the wind chakra from the ninja blades slicing him. Kurando crosses his blades and a beam of energy explodes from them and sends Asuma flying through the air.
Kurando blinks, then turns to see Ino, Shikamaru, and Chouji. Ino is on her knees holding her head in severe pain. Shikamaru is sweating as his shadow returns to him and Chouji’s enlarged arm is returning to normal size, but now looks badly broken.
Tama stands in front of TenKishimon, with the hero’s armor covered in dents and cracks. Tama smiles, even with a hole through her chest, then dissolves into blood and mud. The red-brown liquid pools under TenKishimon, then rises up to form a spherical shell around the youkai/Digimon hybrid. TenKishimon can only watch as the shell is covered in glowing red cracks before exploding like a bomb. Badly damaged armor collapses to the ground and the shockwave renders Miyatsu unconscious.
Shiunmon struggles to move, as Hitomi is held to a tree by skeleton arms. Larger bone arms hold the bird hybrid, gripping hard enough to crack bone and finger tips piercing skin and flesh. Suddenly, a dozen bone arms explode from the ground and strike Shiumon’s unprotected stomach. Most are stopped, but several pierce and impale the child-level warrior.
Necromancer Tama rises like a ghost from the bloody battle ground and raises her hand to the sky. Tiny fragments of bone, wood, and stone gather in her palm, and fuse together into a mass. As more and more material is absorbed at an accelerated rate, the mass takes form. The form of an immense scythe with a petrified wood handle and a long curved razor sharp blade composed of metal and stone.
A badly injured KonKishimon ducks under KuroKishimon’s halberd, spins, and delivers a slash to the crazed warrior’s back. The Knight’s sword slices clear through the dark talisman causing it to ignite in blue flames. Within seconds, the talisman is gone and KuroKishimon falls to the ground completely drained.
KonKishimon then turns to see Morinji swell to the size of a giant like Chouji using one of Akimichi’s body manipulation techniques. The giant Tanuki swells like balloon into a spherical shape as it drinks from its sake bottle, then releases a torrent of burning liquid from its gullet. The burning napalm-like liquid flows across the ground towards the drained knight and his unconscious brother.
Rock Lee and Maito Gai appear and grab the brothers, pulling them to safety, while Kairi sends a wave of water to contain and divert the burning liquid. Tenten fires a barrage of projectiles coated in poison and explosive seals, but Morinji explodes like a giant Hydrogen balloon. Neji then attacks Tenten, his eyes glowing due to the dark talisman on his back.
Tsuhiyomi explodes into a thousand water droplets after another attack by Team Light. The water droplets stop falling and float in midair before shooting at the heroes like bullets. Angemon and Angewomon both shield their partners, but the water bullets pierce them and their partners completely. As they fall, two giant hands made of water explode from the ground behind Tsuhiyomi and grab Masaru and Agumon out of the air. The two hands give them a quick squeeze which cracks bones, then toss them into Ryo and Cyberdramon. As Team Reptile tumbles to the ground, the ground beneath them becomes water. This water is strange as while it is denser and heavier than normal, none of heroes are buoyant and sink like stones.
Gaara and Shukaku are sent flying by a massive electrical discharge from Susanno. The lightning shockwave melts nearly all of their sand and cocoons them in molten glass while incinerating surrounding trees. Temari and Kankuro soon join their unconscious little brother when they are hit by bolts of lightning.
Takato’s eyes widen as Susanno’s white flash blade leaves burning cuts in his chest and badyl injures Guilmon. Jenrya and Gargomon also fall as the fiery blade cuts their torsos. Ruki and Renamon attack from the shadows, but the servant of the Castle Lords generates a spherical barrier. The shell of darkness crawling with blue lightning then explodes outward in a shockwave that shatters and incinerates trees, and reduces boulders to dust. The blast also sends Ruki and Renamon flying into the ground.
Tsunade appears next to Sussano and delivers an extremely powerful punch to his armored face. Susanno of the Storms doesn’t move a centimeter; instead Tsunade is shocked by high voltage electricity.
Amaterasu points her index finger at Angel and a fiery beam of red light lances through Angel’s chest and out his back, straight through the heart.
In the center of a Dark Lake, the thick cloud of shoki (miasma) has dispersed. The Castle composed of dark crystal has changed shape, with thicker walls and fortifications, and dome-like chambers. The toxic lake ripples as the castle begins to shake and waves appear as the castle rises from the lake bed. The castle rises from the lake sending out a corrosive tsunami, then slowly floats into the sky.
Lord Mokusei slashes the Tiger and the Rabbit with a blade composed of lightning. The creatures cry out in pain, then fall to the ground dead. As they die, their bodies dissolve into particles of light. Each light shines like a star and the lights flow into Mokusei body causing him to glow a bright blue aura and crack the ground beneath him.
Lady Kinsei slices the Monkey and the Rooster with blades of wind. As the creatures die, their bodies explode into thousands of white stars that flow into Kinsei. Kinsei’s white aura expands and she almost purrs in pleasure as her power increases.
Lord Kasei incinerates the Snake and the Horse with his flames. When the flames disperse, the only thing that remains is a cloud of crimson stars, which flow into Kasei’s body. The Lord of Fire’s aura grows like gasoline on a bonfire and melts the crystal ground around him with its heat.
Lady Susei wraps tentacles made of water around the bodies of the Rat and the Pig, then with a twist of her wrist causes them to be ripped to pierces in a very gruesome manner. The bodies dissolve into black water, leaving dark blue stars floating the air. The stars flow into Susei and her dark aura expands and swirls around her in a maelstrom.
Supreme King Dosei raises his hands and sand explodes from the ground beneath the Dragon, Sheep, Dog and Ox. The golden sand covers every square millimeter and is soon almost a meter thick. King Dosei closes his hand and the sand implodes crushing the four zodiac animals like grapes. The bloody sand then flows into Dosei’s body carrying the golden stars he knows it contains. It hard to explain how a humanoid daiyoukai, or even his true youkai form, could absorb a hundred twenty times his body weight in sand and not increase in size or mass.

Information taken from tvtropesDOTorg under Obake or Youkai
Obake is the general term used for Japanese monsters and demons (also known as Yokai), also sometimes applied to Japanese ghosts (Yuurei). Naturally, these creatures are mentioned or appear quite often in Anime. Commonly referenced Obake include:
· Henge, magical animals with Shape Shifting powers and human intelligence. Often assume human form and get into all kinds of mischief. The two most famous Henge are probably Kitsune (foxes) and Tanuki (raccoon-dogs).
·Oni, muscular, mountain-dwelling humanoids who can be depicted as either good or bad. Almost always translated into English as "demons" or "ogres", although they are not always evil.
·Tsukumogami, inanimate objects that come to life after a hundred years. These can range from weapons to clothes to umbrellas (Karakasa).
·Nurikabe, a monster that takes the form of an animate section of wall. It has the power to turn invisible, and likes to use this power to impede travelers.
·Kamaitachi, weasel-like creatures that attack in trios: the first one knocks down a traveler with a gust of wind, the second cuts the traveler with its sickle-like claws, and the third applies an ointment that stops the bleeding, leaving the victim with a bloodless but inexplicably large and painful wound.
·Kappa, water spirits who hold water in a reservoir on top of their heads. Kappas are fond of eating cucumber, hence cucumber rolls being called "Kappamaki".
·Tengu are winged creatures. Long-nosed Tengu are red-skinned and humanoid, Karasu Tengu are anthropomorphic crows.
·Rokurokubi are human by day but have extremely elastic necks during the night. Nukekubi can detach their heads from their necks and float away in search of human flesh.
·The baku is a relatively benign example, being a tapir-like monster that eats bad dreams.
