Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 16

Volume 1 Chapter 16

There were many people in the room. They tried to look all cool and scare us, but we just ignored them.

"Hey, Shikamaru."

"Sup Chji. So you guys are also joining this exam."

"Dad told me he'll buy me barbecue if I become a chunin."

"I see you haven't changed."

It was almost time when the last team came in.

"Haha Sasuke, what happened to your face? It looks like you got your ass kicked."

"Shut up! Nothing happened."

"Haha. Sure, whatever you say."

(AN: Sasuke doesn't have his Sharingan since he didn't go to the wave. He also didn't go on any other dangerous missions.)

I saw Kabuto walking towards us.

"Hey, you guys must be the rookie 9. Fresh out of the academy. You shouldn't be so loud."

"Who are you?"

"I'm Kabuto. This is my 7th time in the chunin exam."


"Then you must know a lot about the exam."

"You could say that. How about I give my juniors some information with the ninja info cards."

"Ninja info cards?"

"They are cards that have information burned into them and coded with chakra. I have gathered information about the exam and all the participants and put them on these cards."

'He is a good actor, but for a genin to get all that information is almost impossible.'

I quickly snatched all his cards and used a fire jutsu to burn them.

"What! Why did you do that?"

"Don't want the competition to get information on me and my team."

"But you didn't have to burn them."

"What are you going to do about it?"

While we were arguing 3 sound ninjas came running towards us. They attacked Kabuto. One of them tried to hit Kabuto on the face but slightly missed. But his glasses still broke. He kneeled on the ground and puked on the ground.

'That is a sound attack, huh.'


There was smoke at the front of the class.

"Silence! Degenerates! I'm Ibiki Morino, proctor for the first test of the chunin exam."

He told us the rules, and the exam started. I looked it over once and almost laughed out loud about how easy it was. Sure, for most it will be almost impossible, but I'm leagues above them. After 5 minutes I had already answered everything and turned around the paper.

'I guess it's time for a nap.'

40 minutes passed, and it was time for the last question. He told them that if they failed the question, they will never be able to participate in the chunin exam again. Half of the teams had already left when he looked at me.

"Where do you think you are! How dare you sleep in my exam!"

I looked up to him with a bored expression.

"I got so bored that I fell asleep."

"So you didn't hear the rules for the last question."

"Nah, I heard. But the last time I checked, I'm not a coward. Or it could be because you can't fool me with your fake threats."

Everyone hesitated after hearing me. Ibiki just looked surprised, not expecting someone to see through his test.

"This is your last chance to leave."

Everyone started looking around. But in the end, they all sat down.

"Congratulations you all pass."


He started to explain what the exam was about when someone jumped through the window. It was Anko, the next test proctor. She told us to go to our jonin sensei for the location and time of our next test.

After everyone left, Ibiki went to pick up all the tests.

'Huh, this guy was done after 5 minutes and from what I can see he has answered everything correct. But he saw through the test, so I guess it's not that weird. Naruto Uzumaki, you've become interesting.'

After getting the location from Asuma-sensei, we went to training ground 44, the Forest of Death. I could easily sense Orochimaru's chakra. To think that Anko wasn't able to realize that he was here. Even after he licked that blood.

After getting our scroll and signing a paper that says we don't hold Konoha accountable if we die in there.

We were sent to gate 16 with the heavens scroll. I'm the one who keeps the scroll, but I made 2 shadow clones transform in the scroll and gave them to Hinata and Shikamaru. You never know when they can come in handy.

"After we get an earth scroll, we will immediately run to the middle tower. There is no reason for us to stay around. Hinata keep your eyes open and tell us if there are any enemies nearby."

"Yes, Naruto-kun."

"Shikamaru, I will try to get them close to each other so when I give the signal you'll stop their movement.

"I'll be ready."

"Good, let's get this over with quickly so we can relax for 3 days."

(AN: I know that he can easily take care of them by himself, but then Shikamaru and Hinata would think that they are useless. I'm just trying to show them some love.)

We got the start signal, and the gate opened. We ran inside, and Hinata immediately spotted a team.

"There is a team at 3 o'clock."

"Let's sneak up behind them. We'll first see if they are a threat."

It's a team from Konoha. They didn't have much chakra and from the way they moved I could see that they would be easy. I moved in and with one kick each, they all hit a tree.

"Now, Shikamaru!"

After they got immobilized Hinata moved in. To make sure they can't do anything.

They all got knocked out. I went to search them and found an earth scroll.

"Excellent work. We got an earth scroll, so let's head to the tower immediately."

While we were on our way, I could sense Orochimaru fighting. He must be making his move on Sasuke. I wonder how Kiba and Sakura are holding up. I know that he won't kill Sasuke, but I'm not sure that the other 2 can survive.

Just for insurance, I sent a shadow clone to interfere if someone is going to die. The reason I'm not preventing Orochimaru from attacking Sasuke is because I'm interested in the curse seal. After I completely understand them, it would be easy for me to remove them and use them without side effects.

We got to the tower in 57 minutes. Easily beating the previous record and the one Gaara would have set in the original.
