Naruto Inuzuka, the adopted son of Tsume Inuzuka, grew up well aware of the philosophy that deception is a ninja's greatest weapon. Aside from his immediate family, and a certain fox spirit, no one is aware of his true personality and abilities. The day of Naruto's graduation from the academy, the Hidden Leaf Village gets a wake-up call. Not only is Naruto intelligent, strong and observant, but according to the sages of Myoboku he's the reincarnation of none other than the Sage of the Six Paths. With orders from the Hokage to say nothing to anyone other than his team and teacher, Naruto decides to train in secret to master his power.
When he messes up and uses almost all of his chakra, the Nine Tailed Fox makes a deal with him to save them both from oblivion: in exchange for the bijuu's power and knowledge being fused with his soul, Naruto must destroy the one who dared to manipulate the ancient fox spirit into attacking the Leaf.
Awakening from near death, Naruto unlocks the ultimate dojutsu, the Shikigan; a mix between the three 'great' dojutsu with the additional ability to stop time and control the realms of the dead.
Can Naruto live up to his destiny as a great sage?
