Yoshitsune Ōtsutsuki (大筒木義経, Ōtsutsuki Yoshitsune) is a strange being created from Indra's and Asura's chakra melded into a human body by Yorinori Uchiha using the Creation of All Things ability, who had survived the Uchiha Clan Massacre because he was in a small cluster of Uchiha that left the village at the defeat of Madara Uchiha led by Madara's son to a southern portion of the Land of Fire. He was later taken to Konohagakure by Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki after they confronted Yorinori and Sasuke killed him. Naruto decided to bring the boy to Konoha for protection and was raised by Kazesō, though when he got older he fled the village due to learning the true darkeness that lived in the village. Later in life, Yoshitsune has been labeled as an S-rank ninja. Yoshitsune later had created Inari, his village's tailed beast, and had it sealed into him to stabilize the powerful beast. This made him become a jinchūriki, as well as Inari's first jinchūriki. Later, Yoshitsune gained the status as a sage when he mastered, on accident, the Six Paths Sage Technique, melding his Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki-like chakra, Inari's chakra, and natural energy into one, powerful, potent senjutsu chakra.
He later formed the Land of Origin and Gingagakure with the help of Akuryō. With that he became the "First Genkage" (初代元影, Shodai Genkage). As Genkage, he created and leads the Genkage protection squad, known as Akuryō. Due to his fame in the shinobi world, Yoshitsune has been given various titles and monikers. Some have joked that Yoshitsune has as many talents as the number of petals of the blossoms on a cherry tree, earning him the moniker of "Thousand Cherry Blossoms" (千本桜, Senbonzakura). This title is said to be Yoshitsune's personal favorite. After mastering the Six Paths and reading the history of the tablet hidden in the Naka Shrine, as well as be granted the chakra of Hamura Ōtsutsuki by Hagoromo, he changed form slightly, gaining a third Rinnegan on his forehead and horn like features. For his appearance similar to that of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki and beliefs of Hagoromo, he was bestowed the title as the "Six Paths Rabbit God" (六道兎神, Rikudō Tsugami).
A world remade with knowledge of Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki. A world remade with wonder. Yorinori Uchiha, member of a splinter group of the famous Uchiha clan. The splinter group differed from the main family in one way though, it had remained loyal to Madara Uchiha and his ways. Yorinori had become one of few Uchiha able to activate the Mangekyō Sharingan, and desired the knowledge of the tablet hidden within the Naka Shrine. Using his eyes, he was able to breakdown the shrine's code enough to pick out a few key terms, such as Creation of All Things, Indra, Asura, and reincarnation. While leaving, he was attacked by Konoha-nin in large numbers. Yorinori knew escape would not happen, even with use of his Susanoo. As such, Yorinori activated the power of Izanagi to control the outcome, his outcome, and escaped at the loss of an eye. Angered by his eye loss, the man joined Otogakure, known for its darker medical tactics and knowledge. Here he would understand how it is said Izanagi is based on a superior power, Creation of All Things, and trained under the principles it was known for. Yorinori would also learn the need of the power of the Senju and the power Uchiha being needed for the Rinnegan, but Yorinori would discover the real truth behind it. From the tablet Yorinori knew Asura and Indra reincarnated into new beings, and deciphered it was the need of their chakra, rather than the clans themselves. Yorinori would use this to dry and discover the indentities of the reincarnations, and the answer became clear. Sasuke Uchiha, one with the Rinnegan, was Indra, and Naruto, user of the Six Paths Sage Technique was Asura, basing it off the legends of the two in the tablet and the modern two's real accomplishments. Yorinori would attack them, and with his own unique powers, would absorb the chakra of Sasuke and Naruto to gain plenty of their chakra. Yorinori would flee from them and activate his Creation of All Things variant. He would force Sasuke's and Naruto's, Indra's and Asura's chakra to flow out of him in their purest state. He would use the Creation to meld the two chakra together and into the form of baby. Yorinori smirked evilly, knowing he would later use forbidden tactics to take control of the body once it grew older. He would first raise the child to become powerful and to awaken the many skills he could. The chakra of Asura crafted the perfect body life force, and the chakra of Indra created a powerful chakra network and eyes. It was done, the child had been created. Yorinori walked towards the child but in his focus on the child, failed to see Sasuke and Naruto had arrived, and Sasuke had used the Chidori Sharp Spear to stab the crazed man through the heart and down, killing him effectively. Naruto picked up the child, and both he and Sasuke noted with their sensory abilities that the chakra of the created child was nearly identical to Hagoromo's when they had the Sage greet them in their bodies. Sasuke was unsure of allowing the child to live, but Naruto held the child and, as Hokage, brought the child to Konoha. Naruto left the child in the care of a Kazesō, a well-known monk, knowing the man was lacking of hatred and who had also learned the ways of the shinobi, and had explained his story. From that point on it was Kazesō who raised the young child who quickly began getting stronger during his development into an individual. Kazesō would named the child Yoshitsune, after his own father, and gave him the surname of Ōtsutsuki, after the Sage of the Six Paths himself. Graduating from the academy, he was placed on a genin team with Kazesō as the jōnin instructor, with Ninigi Senju and an unknown female, some believe she was a Hyūga, as his teammates. This group was called the strongest of the genin teams. When the chūnin exams rolled around, the team entered and were promoted to the rank of chūnin. During the exam Oto-nin who knew of Yorinori began to taunt Yoshitsune, calling the boy a mere created vessel and his only purpose was to be a weapon. The group placed Yoshitsune under a genjutsu that showed what Yoshitsune's life may have been like with Yorinori, a boy trained from morning to midnight to become Yorinori's new body before trying to kill him. Ninigi threw a kunai at Yoshitsune in a non-vital area, the pain from it waking Yoshitsune up from the genjutsu. Yoshitsune activated the Rinnegan after this, the pain of knowing the truth, he was not a normal child, he was a creature created for destruction made the eye manifest. They tried to place Yoshitsune in another genjutsu, but Yoshitsune was able to break it as it was set. Yoshitsune and Ninigi then quickly defeated the three Oto-nin. Some time later, Yoshitsune still sat in the revelation and began to hate himself until Kazesō and Ninigi came to him. Kazesō said despite the terms of his life, Yoshitsune was still human, and above all, he was Kazesō's beloved son and student. Ninigi called Yoshitsune his brother, and joked how as Yoshitsune was made from Asura, they were related by chakra. Yoshitsune embraced the two, and accepted his past is not of his control, but his future is.
Years later on one of his last team missions with his sensei and father-figure Kazesō, the two were ambushed by Kumo-nin. Kazesō knew that in their state they were both doomed and demanded Yoshitsune to flee while he held the group off. Kazesō proceeded to use his skill to fight them off as best he could, but ultimately died as a result. Yoshitsune would return after hearing the howls of his father-figure's pain and seeing the dead body of his teacher made his Rinnegan reactivate for the first time since the exams. He then used the techniques it granted to avenge his fallen master. Years would pass and Yoshitsune became a jōnin and even served as an Anbu member. While serving as an Anbu, Yoshitsune would locate files on many attacks and events done by Konoha. While many were justified, many were also dark and served nothing but to defend the government of Konoha. Yoshitsune would learn of dark events like the Uchiha Clan Massacre, Root, and the true reasons of why Tobirama Senju moved the UChiha clan, not for protection, but for fear of them. Yoshitsune grew to distrust his village, and finally would read his own story for being brought to Konoha. He would discover how he was nearly killed by Sasuke, and how Sasuke and Naruto brought him to the village for safe keeping. Yoshitsune would flee his home that night, leaving no trace of himself for the corrupt village to follow. After this he formed a partnership with a man named Sakin, who would travel with his new found friend after Yoshitsune treated the wounds Sakin recieved in battle with Yoshitsune who has offered to train with him. Slowly, Yoshitsune's attitude change. He desired village, one free of previous wars that could be a safe haven. Finding an island and with the help of his team and the locals, he created Land of Origin. Here, with the help of the locals once more, formed the new village Gingagakure. He became the first Genkage of the village. Ginga would eventually decide it needed a tailed beast in case of the Five Great Shinobi Countries decided to attack it. They sent Yoshitsune to solve this issue. Having located the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, Yoshitsune used the remaining chakra of all the tailed beasts still lingering inside it to form a new tailed beast in the form of a kitsune, that he would name Inari. After it was restrained by Yoshitsune, Ninigi, Sakin, Dendō Kangoku, and Shidakō Aburame, it was sealed into Yoshitsune due to Yoshitsune's strong chakra and lifeforce, making Yoshitsune become a Jinchūriki. Inari at first was insane due to a lack of balance between yin and yang, but after being allowed to consume Yoshitsune's chakra it balanced out and grew its own personality. Yoshitsune and Inari work together well, as Yoshitsune became what is considered a "perfect jinchūriki" with training. Eventually, as the world began to become corrupt more and more, Yamaren decided to teach Yoshitsune Sage Mode. The two trained upon the Golden Mountain, an area with high amounts of natural energy to make it easier. The training proved to be difficult, as Yoshitsune often relied on eye powers during training and Inari's chakra preventing proper bonds for awhile, such as in a balancing exercise in one of the tallest trees at the peak Yoshitsune fell and rather than use aspects of the environment to save himself, he used the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode to latch himself to the side of the mountain. Yamaren berated Yoshitsune, telling him if he kept relying on his eyes the training would not work as he he is using powers in him rather than feeling the elements and energy in the natural world. Yamaren further said if Yoshitsune kept using his eyes he would petrify into a statue, die, and be forgotten by the world eventually. Taking these words to heart, Yoshitsune stopped using his dōjutsu and tailed beast all together during this practice, and finally after many days of this harsh training mastered the art of absorbing natural energy, but he did not activate Sage Mode. Instead, his chakra, which was that of the Sage's, and Inari's, made of all nine original tailed beasts, balanced with the natural energy and he activated the Six Paths Sage Technique instead, a more powerful variant of Sage Mode. With his eyes, body, and chakra now that of the Sage of the Six Paths, he ventured out and was able to access the Naka Shrine. Here he learned of the Sage's true name, the Sage's mother, the Shinju, the Tailed Beasts' origins, and the rest of the secrets held in the tablet. Soon after this though, Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, the Sage of the Six Paths, appeared to Yoshitsune in his mindscape. The great Sage retold the history, and fixed all changes created by Black Zetsu, as well as new additional information he learned through Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha during their battle with Kaguya, the Sage's own mother. Yoshitsune began to share this information with the world, by setting out from Ginga from time to time. Hagoromo, to help Yoshitsune on his mission against those who seek to conceal the truth, granted him the chakra of his brother, Hamura Ōtsutsuki. Yoshitsune's chakra, being that of Hagoromo's, resonanted with Hamura's chakra and merged back to a form of chakra even older than their own, into a chakra like that of their mother's chakra, the chakra of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. With this power, Yoshitsune's appearance changed, his eyes transforming into their Rinnegan form permanantly, and he obtained the third Rinnegan and a power held by Kaguya and Hamura, the Shikotsumyaku. He began to be called the "Six Paths Rabbit God" (六道兎神, Rikudō Tsugami). Yoshitsune would eventually became the teacher and father-figure to Kiyomi Himura, the Pseudo-Jinchūriki to Shukaku, Matatabi, Isobu, Son Gokū, Kokuō, Saiken, Chōmei, Gyūki, and Kurama. Yoshitsune would train her in her abilities, and during this process came to love her as a daughter, leading to him allowing her to live at his house. He has not yet formally adopted her, though he claims that he plans to.
Yoshitsune, much like other 'archaic' members of the Uchiha and Senju clans, bears the appearance of their noble birth coursing through his veins strongly. His formerly detached and cold persona immediately translates to the stance he takes in daily life: upright, but with a slight slouch to represent his detached state of mind. One particular portion of his appearance is his figure. He is relatively tall, but holds a lean and trim figure, which, combined with the various experiences he has been through, is highly muscular and littered with some scars almost everywhere. This is combined with his spiky black hair that faces towards his right, obscuring a portion of his angular, handsome, face and strikingly cold black eyes, morphing into the image that can only be called Yoshitsune. His eyes are also commonly found in their Rinnegan form, being purple in color that colors both the irides and the sclerae completely with rippled-rings, though this is not permenant and can be turned on and off. After gaining the chakra of Hamura Ōtsutsuki, his appearance changes to become more like Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's appearance, albeit more masculine. Such features he gains is his eyes become permanently stuck in the Rinnegan form, and on his forehead, his third eye, a red Rinnegan with nine tomoe in it, formed and opened. His hair also changes to a white color.
The main attire that Yoshitsune wears is rather simple. He began to wear a simple long-sleeved, black, v-necked shirt. He also wears a pair of black pants nearly of a fairly average style and appearance, with white bandages on the shins some what like the style of Madara Uchiha's. He also retains the same style of black sandals. He also wears his hair in a nice look, as it is fairly long and straight with a wild touch to it.
Yoshitsune in his childhood was known to be a kind-hearted child and sympathetic with those around him. When one of his friends was hurt he would always visit them in the hospital or at their home to make sure they are okay and to cheer them up. This made him rather popular as it showed how he truly cared for others. He was also rather cocky when it came to fighting, even going as far as to challenge jōnin despite their superior training and discipline, often leaving Yoshitsune being beaten embarrassingly fast.
Once he defected from the village his personality changed, as he became more serious and less juvenile. He became less cocky when fighting and kept his Rinnegan active to deter his foes from fighting him, as many would fear the eyes. Now in battles he shows respect to his foes, generally allowing them to speak if they desire to without interruption. Though he is generally kind, Yoshitsune is more than willing to kill if he has to. In battles if he gets taunted by the foe with insults towards what he cherishes, Yoshitsune lets his anger show through, seemingly becoming somewhat sadistic in the process. These moments often arise from insults directed at his village and his villagers.
Despite these changes though, Yoshitsune retains his kindness and loving nature. At times he is even called jovial. He extends this care and friendship to his friends and team. He even claims to go as far as allowing his total annihilation to defend his village Gingagakure. Yoshitsune retains his ability to forgive most people, such as forgiving Sakin of his ambush attack on them when they first met. He is very close with all the members of Akuryō, and loves all the villagers of Gingagakure. He can become relaxed around his long time friends Ninigi Senju and Sakin, and even jokes around with them further acting like his youthful self. He even remained good friends with Ninigi after leaving Konoha and prior to Ninigi joining Ginga, often meeting with him to catch up. Yoshitsune recognizes Ninigi as his true best friend, often trying to convince the Senju to join his village. Yoshitsune though did not get angry when Ninigi denied it, knowing that the Senju loves Konoha despite its faults, though was notably very happy when Ninigi eventually joined him. In battle, while retaining respect, is also known to compliment his foes, which some interpret as him mocking them. Despite his kindness, Yoshitsune is also known to have random bouts of egotism and can become arrogant, due to Yoshitsune still having a prideful nature. The person Yoshitsune is closest to is his student and daughter-figure Kiyomi Himura, as the two are usually seen together even during important meetings. Through the time they spent together, Yoshitsune has opened up to her more and more, and the two share a bond as powerful as a true father and daughter, and has opened up to her more so than he has to Ninigi and Sakin, Yoshitsune's closet living friends.
Due to the circumstanses of his birth, Yoshitsune has a large amount of powerful and potent chakra, said to be comparable to that of a Tailed Beast easilty. His high levels of chakra also made it suitable for him to learn senjutsu, albeit in the form of the Six Paths Sage Technique. He is a master of many techniques, many of which are feared nationally and has expert precision with all of them. Though he isn't highly muscular, he is quite strong. Kazesō even says that Tsunade would have been mildly impressed by the physical strength of the Uchiha. As he was created using Asura's chakra in him, he gained the powerful physical energy and life force of the Senju, while Indra's chakra gave him the Uchiha-like monstrous levels of potent and powerful chakra. His already great stamina was increased as he grew older and activated more of the power in his body. Furthermore, the power of Hagoromo in him seems to have given him a power that allows him to heal himself quickly of wounds, ranging from small to large, as well as wounds of others through a yang-based seal on his right hand.
The first time his Rinnegan would activate would be during his own chūnin exams. During the exams, Yoshitsune would encounter ninja from Otogakure, the Village Hidden in the Sound. These ninja knew of Yorinori Uchiha and his agenda to create the perfect vessel. One of the ninja was a sensor, and could tell Yoshitsune had chakra from Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki in his body, and figured out Yoshitsune's identity as the created child, born to Yorinori's vessel. The Otogakure ninja would attack Yoshitsune, and reveal these dark secrets. They would trap Yoshitsune inside of a genjutsu to show Yoshitsune the life he was made for. It showed Yoshitsune creation as best it could, and him being trained from morning to midnight under painful conditions, fashioned to bring out his power as greatly and quickly as possible. The genjutsu showed Yorinori taking over Yoshitsune's body before looping back to his birth and training. Ninigi Senju would attack Yoshitsune in this state, throwing a kunai to stab him in a non-vital area to awaken him from the genjutsu. Yoshitsune's pain from the stab mixed with the mental effects from the revelations on his birth made the Rinnegan activate. He would blow the Oto-nin away with one of the powers of the eye before he and Ninigi would finish them off. Yoshitsune's Rinnegan deactivated and became dormant again until he was older. On a mission with Kazesō, the two were ambused by ninja from Kumogakure, the Village Hidden in the Clouds. Kazesō knew the two of them were outnumbered and outmatches by the Kumo-nin and demanded Yoshitsune to flee as he held them off. Yoshitsune begrudgingly obeys and ran as fast as he could as Kasesō prevented the Kumogakure ninja from giving chase. Yoshitsune would hear the screams and howls of pains from his sensei and would begin to return. Finding Kazesō dead, Yoshitsune's rage made the Rinnegan reawaken in him, and made use of its powers to annihilate the Kumo-nin. This time, the Rinnegan remained in his arsenal, and Yoshitsne could turn it on and off at will. With time, chakra consumption from the eye being activated became minimal, and as such Yoshitsune can keep it activated for long periods of time without any ill effect, from days to weeks, and likely could keep it active without ever needing to deactivate it again.
The eye grants Yoshitsune the ability to use the Six Paths Technique. He has unlocked the Deva Path, which gives him power over gravity. This is the path Yoshitsune uses most often in combat. The techniques used by the though often force a recharge before the path is usable again. As such he gained its technique known as Shinra Tensei, which allows him to create a repulsive force that can block projectiles and easily shatter many hard materials. He can also use a large-scale version that can damage the terrain greatly. He also gains the Banshō Ten'in, which allows him to create an attractive force, allowing him to pull objects or people towards him at high speeds. He often uses this technique in combination with another path to absorb their chakra to render them too weak to fight. Yoshitsune also can use the technique known as Chibaku Tensei, which creates a powerful singularity which will be fired into the sky and pulls objects towards it making them compress with each other causing a large sphere to form. After using a technique from the Deva Path, Yoshitsune requires a cooldown period until he can use it again. Yoshitsune is also able to use the Preta Path, which allows him to absorb chakra, making most ninjutsu unusable on him. While in Sage Mode he can also absorb senjutsu chakra. Yoshitsune has also unlocked the ability of the Asura Path. This ability allows him to modify his body and make himself a living weapon by tranformings part into weapons. The Asura Attack allows him to change a limb into a blaster that fires blasts of chakra that also have an explosive effect. Yoshitsune can also use the Naraka Path for interrogation and use of the King of Hell, as when he catches hold of somebody he can make the King of Hell appear and hold them in place by seemingly paralyzing him. Yoshitsune has access to the Outer Path, being able to use it to form chakra rods that can transmit and recieve chakra, and use them as weapons. He seems to use these rods in a fashion similar to the Shikotsumyaku. Yoshitsune can also use the rods to exert his will over those pierced by them. After obtaining the true Shikotsumyaku, he merged the aspects of the chakra rods into the bones, making them all the more stronger and useful. He can also form powerful chains of chakra with the Outer Path. Yoshitsune is able to use the Animal Path, which allows him to summon animals connected to the Rinnegan, such as a strange, golden phoenix-dragon hybrid and an eight-legged horse. While used in combat some times, Yoshitsune uses these beasts for travel more often than not. Yoshitsune also is able to use the Human Path, which allows him to read the mind of somebody but also tear their soul out in the process. Yoshitsune doesn't use the Animal or Human Paths in combat often so his talent with them is unknown. Yoshitsune also uses a technique he created known as Limbo: Elysium. The Rinnegan grants the wielder the power of "Limbo" (輪墓, Wheel Grave), which allows them to project a shadow of themselves into this world. Yoshitsune's shadow will then go to his foe and place the foe in a powerful genjutsu only usable by the Rinnegan of the Limbo shadow without them knowing they were in eye contact with the shadow as only those with the Rinnegan can see it. Yoshitsune can also use the Limbo: Border Jail to make a clone or multiple clones of himself in the Limbo realm. These clones are extremelt powerful, and can tackle down large foes such as Susanoo and tailed beasts. Yoshitsune also uses Limbo: Valhalla, in which he makes a shadow of both himself and his foe. The shadows will battle each other in Limbo world while their human counterparts continue to battle. The shadow of Yoshitsune is generally stronger as it is natural to the world and possesses the Rinnegan, while the shadow of the clone is weaker in this realm due to its lack of the Rinnegan. The shadow of the foe in therefore usually overpowered easily by Yoshitsune's shadow and is damaged greatly before it remerges with the foe, and all damaged it recieved is then transferred to the shadow's human counterpart. The shadows for all of these techniques can only operate for five minutes before returning to Yoshitsune for a cool down time. The clone shadow can also be harmed by techniques made of Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki's chakra, and any harm put on the clone is transferred to Yoshitsune when the shadow returns to him. Yoshitsume also can use the Limbo: Aaru to turn himself into a Limbo shadow. Like normal shadows, in this form he can only be percieved by those with the Rinnegan in normal circumstances. He can use all his regular abilites with the added benefit of being completely erased from the real world for five minutes, and when the five minutes is up he will return to his human form for a cool down period. He can also turn into a shadow to evade attacks. Yoshitsune can only be harmed by Hagoromo's chakra like the normal Limbo shadows as well, but retains any injury he recieved upon turning back into human. In this form, he can also use the same illusion used by the clones in Limbo: Elysium. Yoshitsune also gained the ability to use all of the basic chakra nature transformations, and has, over time, mastered them all. Yoshitsune can further use his Rinnegan to use the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path. Yoshitsune has never summoned the statue, but he has located it before and used it. He made the statue use all lingering tailed beast chakra in it to create a new tailed beast, Inari, who would be sealed within Yoshitsune.
Yoshitsune later obtained the chakra of Hamura Ōtsutsuki, and Hamura's chakra combined with his own, which was that of Hagoromo's, was able to recreate the chakra of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. This caused his own third eye to awaken on his forehead. This third eye was in the form of a red Rinnegan with nine tomoe, like that of Kaguya's own eye. After gaining this eye, Yoshitsune's original eyes also became permanently stuck in their Rinnegan form. With the three Rinnegan, Yoshitsune's Rinnegan techniques became more powerful than before. The third eye is also said to hold the power of the Sharingan, to which Yoshitsune uses it to predict movements of his foe and to copy techniques. Also with his third eye, Yoshitsune gained two highly powerful abilites. One of these abilities allows Yoshitsune to telport himself and others to other dimensions. This ability allows Yoshitsune to have six dimensions with different effects. Yoshitsune can also control the environment in all six, making it seem as though he has more abilities such as Lava Release or Ice Release for a few examples. The first dimension is a massive cavern with a floor of lava. The cavern is full of intense heat and volcanic gas, making it an unsafe environment for all who enter it except Yoshitsune. This dimension either requires one to cling to a wall or to have the ability of flight. Clouds of ash can also form that fire bolts of volcanic lightning. The second dimension is a frozen world. The intense coldness of the world freezes water techniques quickly, making most usage of water-based techniques useless, even for Yoshitsune. The freeing temperatures can also cause one to develop frostbite quickly. The third dimension is a large desert-like area. The air in this world is higly arid, causing danger to those who breath it. The world also has a large sun over it, making it an extremely hot environment, or should the sun above sink and the moon rise for nighttime, the temperature can drop below freezing. The fourth dimension is one of a vast forest. The trees in this world are alive and attack all chakra that is not of Yoshitsune's chakra by targeting the being and growing around them. The trees can either use their though bark to tear through the flesh of the foes or absorb their chakra. The trees can even fire wooden spears from their branches. Yoshitsune can control the trees to attack specific targets as well. This realm is thought to be born from Yoshitsune's exposure to Ninigi Senju's chakra, as Ninigi is a wielder of the rare and mighty Wood Release. Wood Release users could counter the trees in this realm with their power. This seems to be the central realm for Yoshitsune, being the once that connects his dimensions together. The fifth dimension is one of eternal darkness. In this realm, light can not be formed in any form, making it truly a world darkness greater than that of the night. The darkness also seems to hinder sensing abilites for those in this world to a degree. Dōjutsu seem to be the best way to sense chakra in this realm comapred to other methods. Only those with the third Rinnegan can see perfectly within this evil world. The final dimension Yoshitsune can summon those to is a wolrd of an endless and powerful natural disaters. This realm is thought to be under an eternal Tenpenchii, as, like Tenpenchii, a large mushroom cloud appears in the center of the dimension. The intense rains cause floods, hail can beat down on the land, tornadoes run wildly everywhere, earthquakes shatter and shake the land, lightning fires off, volcanoes erupt violently, and tsunamis form from the flooding waters and earthquakes. This is thought to be the most dangerous dimension Yoshitsune can bring forth. The other ability allows Yoshitsune to create portals that allow him to instantaneously move from location to location. These can even be use to just transport parts of Yoshitsune, allowing him to grapple opponents even if they are far way from him or stab them with a weaponised bone from afar.
Yoshitsune was created from Indra and Asura's chakra, forming one with the body and chakra of Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki. Hagoromo could appear to Yoshitsune within his mind due to this. Yoshitsune seeked to spread the truth of the beginning of the shinobi world, and upon revealing this to the Sage of the Six Paths, to aide him on this quest as some would seek to prevent this or wish to kill Yoshitsune for insulting their proceived origins of the world, basing it on Hagoromo being the one true god, Hagoromo gifted Yoshitsune with a chakra to make him evolve beyond being a new world Hagoromo. Hagoromo gifted the chakra of his brother, Hamura Ōtsutsuki, to Yoshitsune. The chakra of Hagoromo and Hamura merged back into a form that predated even them. Their chakra merged into that of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's chakra. The chakra that birthed the world severly mutated Yoshitsune's body, causing a third eye to open up on his forehead along with making it so his regular eyes were now premanently stuck in the form of the Rinnegan. Alongside this, he gained a new power. Kaguya's chakra changed Yoshitsune's skeletal structure, allowing him access to a power held by Kaguya and rare members of the Kaguya clan, the Shikotsumyaku. Yoshitsune is known to use Shikotsumyaku to enhance his already decent taijutsu to far stronger levels. Combined with his great strength, speed, and stamina, the versatile art of Shikotsumyaku became a perfect fit in Yoshitsune's combat style.
With the power to manipulate his bones, Yoshitsune gained many new techniques. One such technique allows him to fire the bones in his finger tips like bullets in a spinning motion. These bullets easily tear through flesh, muscle, and even bone. The bones also regenerate quickly, allowing Yoshitsune to fire the bone bullets rapidly. Yoshitsune can preform the Dance of the Camellia, in which Yoshitsune can cause his own humerus to grow in a modified shape to become that of a sword. Yoshitsune then stabs and lunges with the sword of bone at such speeds that the foe's eyes lag behind and cannot keep up, to the point the foe's eyes percieve the sword as leaving afterimages. Another dance Yoshitsune can use is the Dance of the Willow. Deadly sharp bones grow from Yoshitsune's hands, shoulders, elbows, and knees. In this form, Yoshitsune becomes like a leaf, and uses the hard bones to counter and parry the attacks of his foe, and use the bones to stab through foes. The last dance Yoshitsune can use is the Dance of the Seedling Fern, in which Yoshitsune causes a large number of bones to burst from the earth, forming a forest of bones that is sure to destroy nearly all caught in its nativity. Yoshitsune can also merge with the bones, and appear out of the bone unnoticed to capture those not killed. Yoshitsune also combines the power of his chakra rods into the bones, combining the power the rods have of controlling people with the strength of the bones.
Truly, ninjutsu is where Yoshitsune shines in battle. As previously stated, Yoshitsune has very high levels of chakra even among the standards of the Uchiha, being compared to a Tailed Beast on numerous occasions, which allows him to use many high level techniques in succession. Yoshitsune also has the stamina to keep up with this usage of ninjutsu. Yoshitsune also gained a certain medical ninjutsu. This allows him to heal any wound on his body from minor to major in seconds complete. With the enhancements it gains from the Six Paths Sage Technique, he can even regrow entire limbs if they are severed, allowing Yoshitsune to tank many attacks before reacting to any kind of pain.
Yoshitsune's affinity is the Fire Release and wields it with great skill. He was able to burn down a medium size base with his Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique, a technique that creates a large ball of fire that can break through harder substances as well. This seems to be his most used and favorite fire technique. He also mastered powerful fire techniques such as the Fire Release: Great Fire Annihilation, which creates a powerful wall of fire that damages a wide area that takes multiple water users to extinquish. This fire technique is rightly feared for these reasons. He can also form a massive stream of fire that can set large areas ablaze, usually by flying overhead of the targeted area. Yoshitsune can also fire a volley of small fireballs which move about in a unpredicatable manner. The fireballs can be controlled by Yoshitsune, and he can conceal weapons in them, such as chakra rods, and later on steel-like bones, that he can use to increase their size the moment of impact and stab the foe. This technique is primarily used as a distraction though. One of his other major techniques allows Yoshitsune to create a spiraling flaming attack that moves forward extremly fast, all while it expands greatly, making it very difficult technique to avoid. Yoshitsune also uses the Fire Release: Dragon Flame Release Song Technique to blast many fireballs in the shape of dragon heads that burn the foe greatly with the slightest contact. The number of dragon heads is determined by the amount of chakra used. Similar to that technique, he can create a storm of fireballs with strength to shatter earthen walls, though this one seems to be far more widespread than the Dragon Flame Release Song Technique, making it all the more useful and deadly. Yoshitsune can combine his Six Paths Sage Technique and fire chakra to create the Sage Art: Fire Release Magatama Great Eruption, which allows him to fire magatama-shaped balls of fire that explode into massive columns of fire that spread out, making it highly destructive and deadly, as well as difficult to avoid. As such, Yoshitsune has labelled this technique as kinjutsu and only uses it in certain situations.
While fire is Yoshitsune's main element and affinity, he also uses two other basic natures in combat more often than the other basic ones excluding fire. He possesses knowledge on Lightning Release, and has been shown to use a few techniques with it. He seemed to learn this nature in honor of his brother. With the Lightning Beast Running Technique being his favorite lightning technique, he skillfully creates the wolf-like being of lightning to control it into attack many foes and can manipulate it so long as he does not stop flowing chakra to his hand. He can also use the beast to run and wrap around foes to create an electrical barrier around them to imprison them before the wolf attacks. This prevents them from being able to escape as easily. Yoshitsune also can create a wave of electricity capable of destroying stone, and often uses this technique with a water technique. Yoshitsune can control the surge of electricity's size by control the chakra, allowing him from using it in a simple, taser-like form to make a large wave of lightning. With senjutsu, Yoshitsune can also merge his lightning chakra with his yin chakra to create streams of lightning coming from his palms that cover a large distance and fork out, making it a very useful technique.
The other nature Yoshitsune uses frequently is Water Release, and as such uses techniques that create such constructs as a sphere of water that has whips coming off it to cause great damage. Yoshitsune first creates a sphere of water and then manipulate it to make it form whips. Yoshitsune can then use these whips to attack many foes, by slamming or stabbing them with the whips that can follow foes and change direction with ease. Yoshitsune developed the Water Release: Mare Nostrum Technique, his most powerful water technique due to its piercing and cutting strength by acting as a water jet cutter and how it causes massive torrents of water upon contact. He often enhances his water techniques with lightning chakra, giving it stronger cutting abilities and a painful, evn deadly, shock. While using senjutsu, Yoshitsune can also create a more powerful, double spear variant of the Mare Nostrum.
Thanks to his Rinnegan, Yoshitsune can also use Earth Release, Wind Release, Yin Release, Yang Release, and Yin–Yang Release. He does not usually use these transformations in combat as he is not as skilled in their use as opposed to his other natures. Yoshitsune is known to use simple chakra flow to put wind-chakra into weapons, namely his steel-like bones, to increase their cutting ability. Yoshitsune's use of wind also includes flowing it into his fire-based technique to increase their power. Yoshitsune also uses yin chakra in combination with his Sharingan to make the illusions it forms even stronger. After his meeting with Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki inside his mind in which Hagoromo activated the hidden powers of Yoshitsune's body, he gained a yang-based seal in the shape of a white sun on his right hand that can be used to heal others from missing limbs and organs, to being able to save them from death. After gaining Hamura Ōtsutsuki's chakra, he also gained the yin-based seal in the shape of a crescent moon on his left hand. Yoshitsune primarily uses Yin–Yang Release through the Truth-Seeking Ball ability he has when using the Six Paths Sage Technique. With it, he can nullify all forms of ninjutsu, though it is weak to senjutsu. These balls of malleable chakra can shaped into various objects, such as a staff, a sword, or a capsule to inclose him to shield himself from attacks.
Even in the academy as a child, Yoshitsune showed skill with clone techniques. Quickly discarding the Clone Technique, Yoshitsune learned the technique that is mostly forbidden, the Shadow Clone Technique. This technique actually forms tangible clones by dividing the users that can experience things another clone or caster may not. When the clone bursts, the chakra disperses and returns to the caster which gives him all the knowledge the clone gained. Yoshitsune further uses this to create a few hundred clones to form an army of himself and so he can hide among them if needed to get ready for a technique or rest. Another tactic Yoshitsune uses is sending a shadow clone that will detonate, as the clone appears normal allowing Yoshitsune to send him as a suicide bomb or even fool foes into engaging him in battle. Combining his clones with kenjutsu allows him to use the Dance of the Crescent Moon which forms three clones to assault the foe at their blind spots simultaneously, making it highly difficult to stop all three usually making it end with a fatal wound to the foe. Yoshitsune also can combine his use of nature transformations into his clone, specifically his Lightning Release. With it he can create the Lightning Release Shadow Clone that can preform like a normal shadow clone, but when destroyed it will revert back into lightning and electrocute whatever it is touching. Yoshitsune also enhanced many of these clones with senjutsu chakra to make them more durable, being able to stand far stronger hits than the average shadow clone.
Yoshitsune serves as the host for the tailed beast that he had named Inari, who is essentially a clone of Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox of Konohagakure. Inari was sealed into Yoshitsune by Dendō Kangoku using a seal which acts some what like the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style, allowing the chakra of Inari to more easily be used by Yoshitsune. With Yoshitsune already possessing tailed beast level chakra reserves, the addition of Inari proved to upgrade his reserves monstrously. Inari can also disrupt genjutsu-based attacks on Yoshitsune, making most attempts useless on him. This gives Yoshitsune near-immunity to illusions. Yoshitsune is considered by many to be a "perfect jinchūriki". When Yoshitsune begins tapping into its chakra reserves, it greatly supplements his own chakra and increases his strength and speed in the process. This further increases his previous healing abilities as well. Yoshitsune can request chakra from Inari, and due to their friendly terms, Inari grants it. Most times, Yoshitsune doesn't have to ask for it, as Inari will supply it when Yoshitsune needs it. With it Yoshitsune can enter an intial form in which his hair becomes spikier and his eyes change from black to red with slitted, fox-like pupils. His canine teeth and nails also lengthen and sharpen. Depending on the amount of chakra, he can get red chakra surrounding him that moves in a wave-like motion. In this form, Yoshitsune can make chakra-enhanced roars capable fo great damage, that further increases in stronger forms. Version 1 also increase his strength, speed, and stamina for each tail he grows. He becomes more animalistic and aggresive in this form, but later becomes friends with Inari and is able to use this form harmlessly. Yoshitsune can also use Version 2, which is the tailed beast's chakra being converted into a humanoid shape, granting the jinchūriki an edge in battle without completely releasing the beast itself. This form makes Yoshitsune seem like a miniature Inari, completed by, normally, sproating nine tails in this form. In this form Yoshitsune can also form a skeleton to act as armour or to increase the power of his attacks. The regenerative abilities granted to him as Inari's jinchūriki constantly heals the damage dealt, but in the long run it shortens his lifespan through the constant destruction and creation of cells. As such, Yoshitsune rarely uses the form. Yoshitsune can also partially manifest Inari, such as sprouting his tails or make his arm become Inari's for defense or to increase his close combat abilities.
The main usage of being a jinchūriki Yoshitsune uses is his ability to use the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. Unlike the other forms, Yoshitsune is shrouded in white chakra that moves in a flame-like motion and his seal becomes visible. His eyes also change from black to red. This form also does not physically alter him. His speed in this form is so drastic that many have issues in determining if it was a use of the Body Flicker Technique in a highly advanced form. His strength allows him to easily shatter stones and barriers. This is the primary form Yoshitsune uses. Yoshitsune is also able to use the Tailed Beast Mode formed by Yoshitsune and Inari fully melding their chakra. This also happened rather quickly due to them becoming friends. The shroud changes its appearance in which the shroud splits and forms a cloak of chakra. The shroud reveals a black undergarment that has the same design as the previous from but in reversed coloring. A magatama forms on each side of the cloak's high collar. Yoshitsune's eyes also mirror Inari's, retaining the red color from the restrained form while gaining slitted fox-like pupils. Once again, his speed, strength, and stamina are all augmented higher. This further makes Yoshitsune deadly, as he becomes one of the fastest shinobi in existance with the strength of a tailed beast. Yoshitsune can also create a full-scale, chakra replica of Inari in this form that holds all the power of the true Inari. With this form, unlike truly transforming into the flesh-and-blood Inari, Yoshitsune can use his other abilities. Yoshitsune can also use this form to create the powerful Tailed Beast Ball in its full form, which can be used to make a powerful explosion or destructive wave, and its rapid fire variant.
Six Paths Sage Technique
Main article: Six Paths Sage Technique Years after joining the village, and as the world grew more and more chaotic, Yamaren Seija began fearing for the safety of the village and decided the best course of action would be teaching Yoshitsune the art of Sage Mode. Upon the peak of the Golden Mountain, an area in the Land of Origin that is rich with natural energy, Yamaren would begin the process of teaching Yoshitsune. After a period of training, Yoshitsune was finally able to complete the form and absorb natural energy into his body. However, due to his possessing chakra nearly identical to Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki's and Inari's chakra, Yoshitsune instead activated the Six Paths Sage Technique instead. This was possible due to his large reserve of the unique chakra and Inari's presense. After activating it, he gains a cloak similar to his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode but replacing the seals on the back is a design featuring the Rinnegan with nine magatama beneath it in three rows of three. In this form his perception skills, reflexes, strength, speed, and stamina all increase greatly, as well as his ninjutsu, genjutsu and taijutsu becomes stronger too. His healing factor is also increased form. This form seems to pull all needed natural energy in after the intial gathering, making it so Yoshitsune neither has to worry about gathering more natural energy or exiting the form by running out of natural energy. As he needs to be still for the intial gathering of natural energy, which can be very dangerous in the midst of combat, Yoshitsune often gathers natural energy by using shadow clones. Over time though, with more training, Yoshitsune became able to gather needed natural energy on his own in mere seconds.
In this form he can create Truth-Seeking Balls, which are composed of his mighty tailed beast and senjutsu chakra. With these spheres, he can take them and reshape them into new tools. He can make them physical or tangible at will, and can fire the spheres as projectiles. Due to their yin–yang nature, they can nullify ninjutsu, and also due to their senjutsu nature the spheres can only be disrupted by other senjutsu techniques. The Truth-Seeking Balls can not be deactivated unless he leaves this form, though this does not prevent him from using other techniques. He normally forms nine spheres, though Yoshitsune can will more to form. Yoshitsune can also use the Truth-Seeking Balls to form a Tailed Beast Ball or multiple Tailed Beast Balls in mere moments. Yoshitsune can use the Sage Art: Yin Release Lightning Dispatch too, which merges his senjutsu chakra with his yin and lightning chakra to create giant bursts of lightning from his palms that can strike from a great distance. Yoshitsune also gained the ability to fly in this form. Yoshitsune is able to apply senjutsu to use other techniques, and has made some unique techniques he can only use while using the Six Paths Sage Technique. An example of this is how Yoshitsune uses Sage Mode to enhance his own invented technique, the Water Release: Mare Nostrum Technique, into the Sage Art: Twin Spears Mare Nostrum Technique, which simply makes two senjutsu-enhanced water spears that explode into a stronger torrent that due to speed can, in itself, damage flesh of does hit by it with great ease. Yoshitsune can also use his senjutsu chakra to increase the strength of his Fire Release, being able to create what is known to be his most destructive technique named the Sage Art: Fire Release Magatama Great Eruption. This technique has the use of making his of his mastery of Fire Release to fire tailed beast senjutsu-enhanced magatama-shaped balls of fire that move at extremely fast speeds, and upon landing erupts into large bursts and columns of fire. Due to the rapid fire, it causes large scale damage to the area and is very difficult to avoid. This technique causes a high amount of destruction because of the fire bursting in wide explosions. Yoshitsune says he will only use this technique in a last-ditch effort to survive.
Like many shinobi, Yoshitsune has been trained in the usage of various weapons. From a young age, he was taught the handling of many weapons, such as the very basic shuriken and kunai handling. He excelled in the marksmanship, as was able to pierce the many targets dead-on or close to it. Yoshitsune also knows how to counter many tools and reverse them against their wielder. Using one of his abilities, Yoshitsune can create makeshift weapons on the spot, and as such does not carry any weapons on him on a regular basis. He often uses this to make a sword or a staff. He later abandons this technique in its raw form, and merges it with his weaponised bones, giving them the sharpness of the bone while having the uses of the chakra rods.
Yoshitsune eventually obtained a sword which he uses with great skill. He imbues his fire and lightning chakra into the sword to increase its effectiveness. With it he was able to fight against powerful swordsman such as Tokugawa and defeat him He has also defeated many members of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, and claims to have bested each sword of the group. He is also confident in his abilities to claim he is a better swordsman than the general of the Land of Iron, who is the strongest of the samurai, though this is known to be simple boasting. From his time as an Anbu in Konohagakure he learned the Dance of the Crescent Moon. After manifesting the Rinnegan, Yoshitsune stopped carrying his sword with him. He used the ability it granted of manifesting chakra rods to form a blade more durable than most ninja tools, easily slicing through kunai and shuriken while leaving damage on regular swords. He also flows his wind-based chakra through the rods to increase there cutting power, and mostly throws them like javelins. Yoshitsune later gained the ability of Shikotsumyaku, and merges the power of the rods into his bones. The bones are far sharper and stronger then the chakra rods, becoming much more useful in combat. Yoshitsune seems to start most fights with his blade to gauge his foes' style before using his stronger abilities. His main style seems to be high-speed slashes mixed with motions meant to disarm his foe if they are armed, and attempt to disable them.
Yoshitsune displays keen sense and great awareness, and has had such skills sense childhood. Such skills are deemed simple, but can truly keep their user alive. Yoshitsune is also quick to discern the nature of a person, if they are friendly or hostile, if they mean to help of do nothing. As Yoshitsune doesn't care for violence, he also possesses great reasoning skill to try and evade unneeded conflict. Yoshitsune is also perceptive, being able to analyze and break down a technique quickly. Yoshitsune can also decieve others well, as well as see through deception. Yoshitsune can quickly plan for a battle too, by analyzing his foe he quickly formulate a plan suited for them. Yoshitsune is also a skilled and adept learner. This is shown by his ability to quickly learn the concepts of Sage Mode and accidently gaining the Six Paths Sage Technique instead, and breaking down the power of advanced natures such as Ninigi Senju's Wood Release or Sakin's Dust Release, and learn all the elements granted to him by the Rinnegan, for a few examples. He was also able to quickly master use of Inari's chakra, being able to use the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode as a result.
Yoshitsune's knowledge of history is also expanive. Yoshitsune has studied the history of the great nations like Konohagakure, Sunagakure, Kirigakure, Kumogakure, and Iwagakure, as well as lesser villages like Otogakure, Takigakure, and Amegakure. He also holds strong knowledge of the great Land of Iron. He applies this history when fighting foes of these different places to try and predict what their fighting style may be. Yoshitsune also possesses knowledge of the Akatsuki and the Shinobi World Wars. With the activation of his Rinnegan, Yoshitsune went on to read the tablet hidden in the Naka Shrine and gained the knowledged it possessed of the Shinju, the theft made by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, better known as the "Sage of the Six Paths", and of how he defeated the Ten-Tails, made the tailed beasts from his chakra, imprisoned the body in a rock formation made by his Chibaku Tensei that would become the moon, and gave the human race chakra. He also learned the story of the elder son and younger son of the Sage and how the younger was chosen, causing the elder to be fueled by hatred, and how from the elder came the Uchiha clan and from the younger the Senju clan. Thanks to Inari having knowledge from Kurama, Yoshitsune also knows the names of all the tailed beasts, and he is one of the few to refer to them by name. Later, due to his possessing of his chakra, Hagoromo himself appeared to Yoshitsune and explained the truth once more, fixing the errors on the Naka Shrine tablet created by Black Zetsu, and added in details he himself did not know until he learned it through Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha during their battle with his mother Kaguya, as he was still residing in their bodies at that point.

- "Fate only gets one so far, once you get there you must make the rest yourself."
- "When you try to master something you will either succeed or fail, but in the attempt you will find your true value."
- "Immortality is a pathetic dream that the weak cling to in hopes of gaining respect and fear. The Sage of the Six Paths, Madara Uchiha, and Hashirama Senju are all examples of this, death comes to even the most powerful of beings. Many supposed "immortals" have died time and time again. As shinobi we fight, and we die to finally rest. In that rest we watch our friends and family persevere and continue in life until they, like us, die and join us in rest. We continue watching their children, their children's children, and so on until a time finally comes were all this senseless violence stops on its own."
- (To Ninigi) "What is blood? The Uchiha and Senju are hailed as the greatest clans, but why? Surely Ninigi, you come from a strong family, but why is the attention always on your clan or the Uchiha's? We are all human, we breath the same air, eat the same food, fight for something, and live for something. And is this proof of us as human? We are also in conflict. Like all humans in the world, we are constantly pitting against one another. Perhaps it is our attempt to think that we are superior that has caused us to fight so heavily, instead of with others. Humans are a cunning creature, we all adapt to the same situations but in our own ways."
