PostSubject: Weapons   Fri Aug 10, 2007 10:36 am

Much like real ninjas, ninjas are trained to use many weapons and tools. Below is a listing of the common weapons ninjas use on quite possibly a daily basis.

Animals/Insects - Animals are also considered as weapons. Some animals have chemical reactions when fed food pills. Inuzuka Kiba's dog, Akamaru turns red and grows in size when fed! Also, Aburame Shino of the Insect Clan uses his bugs to sap chakra out of his opponents. Sometimes it's so deadly that they can never fight again! The Kuchiyose no Jutsu or The Summoning Technique allows the user to summon animals through the space-time continuum. There are many characters who can summon creatures using the Kuchiyose no Jutsu Gama Sennin technique. This however takes skill, training, and chakra. There have been many summons. Some of the most recognizable ones include: Hatake Kakashi and the Hachininken (8 ninja dogs) with Pakkun being his preferred choice. Maito Gai is able to summon turtles, first completed during the Chuunin Exams. Sarutobi (3rd Hokage) is able to summon Enma (monkey). Tsunade can summon a slug. Jiraiya and Naruto can summon toads. Orochimaru can summon snakes. The summoning technique is a contract between the ninja and the creature, written on a scroll that the ninja has to sign using their own blood, for he or she to be able to summon a particular creature. Even then (as with the situation between Naruto and Gamabunta), the creature is not bound to obey the ninja. It all comes down to trust and strength such as the relationship between Orochimaru and Manda.

Bombs - Oddly enough, bombs are used in Naruto, but not often. So far there has only been 3 different bombs seen in the series: Smoke, Gas and Light. The smoke bomb is either used as a distraction or an escape tool. The gas bomb is simply a poisonous gas bomb which causes coughing once breathed in. The light bomb is used to blind a person and it was used to blind Tayuya as part of one of Shikamaru's plans.

Exploding Tags - A commonly used weapon, exploding tags are pieces of paper with the Japanese character "Baku," which means "explode" written on it. These tags can be easily placed on various items and will ignite them and explode after a short amount of time.

Food Pills - You would be surprised to consider this a weapon, but it is. Food pills allow the user to double their chakra and even fight three days non-stop. Also when fed to some animals it creates a chemical reaction. Kabuto, Orochimaru's #1 subordinate has been known to use a blood pill, which regenerates blood lost in battle. The AkimichiClan (Chouji's family) uses a set of 3 pills that greatly increase the user's abilities and can even change their appearance.

Fuuma Shuriken - The fuuma shuriken is also known as the windmill shuriken. It is much larger than the normal shuriken and it is also collapsible. Though the accuracy rate is much lower the effects of being hit by a fuuma shuriken are far more deadly.

Hero Water - This special water is from the Hidden Waterfall and it allows a ninja to have a ten-fold increase in chakra for a short period of time. Also by drinking drops of the water, a ninja from a village can increase his or her fighting ability to compensate for a village's lack of a strong Kage leader. Unfortunately in exchange for this power, the water also eats away your life.

Iron Knuckles - Iron knuckles are pointed knuckle weapons with a blade on the outward facing end. Extremely useful in hand-to-hand combats.

Katana - Katanas are one sided swords used as the default weapon for ANBU members. They are also used by the samurai body guards of Gatou.

Kunai - The Kunai is a kind of basic dagger that all ninjas use. It is all-purpose and can be used as a throwing knife or to stab at your opponents. It is extremely vital for all ninja to have.

Makibishi - Makibishi are small nails used to attack the opponent with.Just like the Senbon Needles, it does not hit the opponent very often. Some ninjasuse this weapon as a distraction for his/her main attack. Makibishis have 4 pointed spikes and are also used to slow down an opponent. Its shape makes it so at least one point is always facing up.

Mouth Ember - Combustible mouth ember is hidden inside the mouth of a ninja. To activate it, a ninja must simply bite the ember. Then the ninja can spit out the ember to ignite combustible items.

Ointment - Ointments are simply used as a healing cream or used to relieve pain.

Senbon Needles - Senbon needles, is mainly used for Acupuncture (a form of Chinese healing that includes sticking needles in strategic spots on your body, redirecting ki or your life force so that it balances out). However some ninja, properly trained, can use them as deadly weapons. One of the reasons it is not all that popular is it requires extreme accuracy and speed, fore these are only deadly if they hit a vital area of the body. Masters of the Senbon Needle combat are in a way, masters of illusion. With the right precision and timing, a ninja can throw a Senbon Needle seemingly at a vital target on an ally, but actually missing it by a few inches. This causes the ally to go into a death-like trance in which the ninja will appear dead. Even if the opponents were to take precautions to see if they are really dead.

Shuriken - The shuriken, otherwise known as ninja stars, is a very deadly and commonly used weapon. There are two types of shuriken: the tiny ones which are more smaller and easier to throw, and the Fuuma Shuriken: a huge shuriken used for fast and easy killing. It is very unwieldy, but if it hits you, you're as good as dead! While the Fuuma shuriken is preferred by the older and more experienced ninja, some Genin find it easier to use than the regular sized shuriken.

Smoke Grenades - Smoke grenades are simple battles items often used in a fight. To activate a smoke grenade, the top must be pulled off. Once it is pulled off, smokes starts coming out allowing a ninja to maneuver around unseen.

Umbrella - Umbrellas are used by the ninja of the Rain village. These umbrellas are mainly used to conceal thousands of needles which, when the umbrella is thrown into the air spinning, spread out in a rain-like fashion.

Wire - Wires are simple thin metal wiring often tied to the kunai or shuriken and thrown to in groups to fasten an enemy to a tree or rock.
