Ueyama Style Sword Specific MasteryDescription:
Masters of this style focus on the individual sword rather than swordsmanship in general when training, developing a unique style for each sword they use.Village:
Near KonohagakureClan History:
During his apprenticeship with his mentor, Yaiba. Ken Ueyama was encouraged to develop his own style of swordsmanship. For Ken, this involved learning how to use not only Katanas, but straight Ninja Swords, Longswords, and other similar weapons. This type of universal sword mastery required Ken to put his own style together for each individual sword of a different type.
Upon discovery of the legendary swords, Ken spent a great deal of time mastering their use and unlocking their inner abilities. While anyone may use the swords, which are excellently crafted without any chakra added, only someone who has trained with them for a great deal of time knows how to infuse their own Chakra into the swords and know
the swords. In addition to his original training and training with the legendary swords, Ken had to battle their original owners to obtain them in the first place. During these battles, he was able to observe techniques the sword master used and emulate them after much practice after the battle. From there, he modified their techniques and created his own. Resulting in the inimitable Ueyama style.All swords must be activated by experience in using them. From there, depending on the amount of Chakra infused into them, their properties will change.
Sword Mastery is assumed.
These swords do not have orthodox jutsu lists. Aside from the Ougi, the "jutsu" are all abilities available to the sword wielder upon activation, so they do not have proper names.
- Sword Name:
Sword Type/Element: A wide Scimitar (Think Yung Sung from Soul Calibur)/Fire
Swordsmanship Style: Semi-Exhibitionist Sword Twirling
Properties on Chakra Activation: Depending on the amount of chakra infused into the sword by its wielder, the blade glows from a dull red to a bright red to bright orange to yellow and finally white. The blade also heats to a very high temperature, but will not melt an opponents sword due to a jutsu cast on it by its original owner, an honorable soldier that wanted to finish sword battles legitimately.
- Distort Air
Description: The heat of the blade can be made to distort the air behind it for an extended period of time. (Maximum of about 10 seconds.
- Stationary Explosion
Description: An continuous explosion wraps itself around the sword, creating a five inch cloud of flames everywhere but its handle. The explosion does not have the concussive force of an explosion, but it does carry the heat associated with one.
- Ougi: Meteor Strike no Jutsu
Description: The sword wielder either thrusts the sword straight forward or holds the blade horizontally in front of their body while rushing forward. Then, similar to the stationary explosion technique, they envelop their body in a firey explosion. Again, the only concussive force created by this technique is from the speed of the dash, not the explosion.
- Sword Name:
Sword Type/Element: A Ninja sword. (Slightly short and completely straight. Only sharp on one side and the tip.)/Electricity
Swordsmanship Style: Generally quick stabbing motions
Properties on Chakra Activation: When chakra is pumped into this sword, lightning covers the dull edge of the blade and extends a half foot from the tip, turning the sword into a double edged European longsword style blade. The lightning increases the sharpness of the blade many fold, but only on organic substances.
- Shock On Contact
Description: A jolt as powerful as a strong static shock (enough to hurt, but not do damage) is delivered on impact with this blade. For every second the blade is in contact with an organic substance, the voltage of the electricity multiplies itself by two.
- Electromagnet for Small Objects
Description: The sword can serve as an electromagnet for items weighing one pound or less within two feet of the blade.
Description: The tip of the sword emits a constant stream of sparks that can not burn, but will each give a small shock on contact with organic matter.
- Explosive Spark no Jutsu
Description: A massive spark that stretches two feet in all directions from the blade is emitted for up to three seconds. The damage done is enough to incapacitate most chuunin and seriously hurt a good amount of jounin. This technique, however, was sealed by the blacksmith that created the sword to allow only one use per battle.
- Sword Name:
Sword Type/Element: A massive long sword. Think cloud from Final Fantasy VII. 1 ft. wide by 2 inches thick by 4 feet long./Wind
Swordsmanship Style: Extremely fast, long slices.
Properties on Chakra Activation: With a small amount of chakra added, it creates a wind tunnel effect around the blade (Not like Inuyasha, an actual wind tunnel). With more chakra added, a small tornado wraps around the blade (this time, it's like Inuyasha)
Description: When in wind tunnel mode, cuts like a normal blade. When in tornado mode, shreds rather than cuts.
- Extreme Speed
Description: The sword, though extremely massive and impossible to hold in one arm by Ken (It's original wielder could easily swing it without activation.), is able to move extremely quickly because the wind around it creates a vacuum in front of the blade that consequently draws it forward with great speed without any effort from the person swinging it.
- Mini Fan
Description: The sword, when held flat and swung, can create a strong wind that dissipates after traveling one foot. It's main purpose is to deflect small projectiles, but its out of battle applications usually prove more useful.
- Ougi: Big Gust no Jutsu
Description: A sideways swing of the sword will cause the tornado to leave the sword and hurtle toward an area or an opponent with enough force to overturn a small car. The sword will seal itself back to its original form once this technique is used.
