Lazy’s Shippuuden Mission Guide

*Thanks to Lazy Genius 13 for allowing us to use his guide*

Lazy’s Disclaimer:

Some things you may wish to know about the following team guide before I delve into the depths of strategy. In the following guide I list teams that I find effective to completing the missions listed, these teams may not fit your personal style and as such their effectiveness may be reduced. When I list a team I also give a short synopsis explaining how the team may work together and support it other factors. I may also use language that describes certain members that you may not understand(IE: DoT AoE) you may refer to my Team Guide to see what I mean by this. When listing teams for a mission if there is a team I’ve listed in a previous mission that may also aid you in said mission I will list it, but will list another team as well because one… I’m not so lazy as to give you the same teams all the time, and two because when completing the later mission you’ll have more characters and therefore more diversity when accomplishing your missions. Exceptions will occur for the missions of the Jounin, as well as for Anko, basically for the A-Rank missions and up I’ll be recycling teams due to my own laziness.

The Prodigal Son Returns:
Win 8 Battles With Naruto Or Kyuubi Naruto In Your Team
Win 2 Battles In A Row With Naruto Or Kyuubi Naruto

Dosu, Naruto, Shikamaru

This team has two characters which will negate an opponents defenses and render them vulnerable. Dosu is here for two reasons, one for his actual skills which add to the team and are required for the mission, and two to shut the people up who are always saying that Dosu isn’t used enough. Naruto has a stun as well as reduction, and Shikamaru has an AoE Stun and therefore can allow Dosu and Naruto to kill opponents while they are stunned rather then attempting to when they may retaliate. Dosu also gives to the team with his gen based drain as well as valuable ‘stun’ that tells the opponent if they move they’re sitting ducks for an assault.

Naruto, Neji, Kin

Using Naruto you can stun with this team which can support Neji’s gentle fist allowing both turns to hit, that would result in 95 damage to one opponent, then were you to use Kin’s needles or Neji’s rotation you can kill that person, and set up for another round of it. This strategy works well, but say you run into reduction….well Neji’s already fixed that hasn’t he with his 64 palms. Kin may also prevent reduction or invulnerability. This team has minor clash of taijutsu, but why would you be using Naruto’s Uzumaki Barrage when you could be using Gentle Fist.

A Girl Grown Up:
Win 15 Battles With Sakura In Your Team
Win 5 Battles In A Row With Sakura

Sakura, Ino, Sasuke

This team revolves around Sasuke dealing as much damage as possible while Sakura and Ino stall the most dangerous opponents with stuns. There is minor clash within this team but one can prioritize moves to make it work as Sasuke needs as much ninjutsu as possible, while he can go without the taijutsu so that Sakura may stun. Ino doesn’t have to worry about sharing chakra at all, and her stun will hit a random enemy so while she may be useless in 1 vs. 1 situations it’s great to be pummeling with Chidori and have her mind disturbance technique add 25 onto it…. for a grand total of 85 damage if Sharingan is active on that member of the team.

A Genius Of Hard Work:
Win 10 Battles With Lee In Your Team
Win 4 Battles In A Row With Lee

Gaara, Zaku, Lee

To the unapplied eye this team may not seem like Zaku belongs, but take a closer look, the other two characters are prime targets for an opponent. For Lee it’s the danger of his 5th gate lotus that attracts the attention, while he can be invulnerable every other turn, what’s going to protect him on the off turn? For Gaara it’s the danger of his instant kill that attracts piercing damagers to him, he can have his reduction up for 3 turns and be invulnerable the fourth, but on the next cycle there will be a turn without protection or invulnerability, how will you protect him? Zaku is our answer to both problems, with one bloodline chakra he can set an invisible protection in front of either of them once every other turn. This will allow the team to last quite a while as they must first eliminate Zaku in order to be able to strike at either Lee or Gaara efficiently. Gaara and Lee during this time will be able to quickly eliminate the enemy, Gaara on those with reduction, Lee on those without it.

Lee, Ino, CSS

This team has a basis around spiking as well as stunning from Ino. Using CSS you can use bloodline chakra to gain the ninjutsu for CSS’ corrupt chidori and that will deal 60 damage leaving them with 40 health, then following up with either his DoT you can deal 25 with 10 if they move the next turn, then using Ino you can have a 50 chance to kill them with her body disruption. Lee, well he stands on his own with his gated lotus.

A Genius Of Ranged Combat:
Win 20 Battles With Tenten In Your Team
Win 5 Battles In A Row With Tenten

Hinata, Tenten, Shikamaru

Using this team one can deal steady damage with Hinata while stunning the opponent with Shikamaru and Tenten. For a mere taijutsu chakra you can stun the opponent for a turn, while they are stunned you can use Hinata’s 25 AoE as a stun, in most cases, will negate damage reduction. While each character on this team requires preparation, not generally a smart idea, it means that you may prepare your next stun while damaging already. In a perfect world one can win in 5 turns, one turn for preparation, and three that include a stun as well as 25 AoE, and one that consists of only the 25 AoE which will tend to be the 2nd turn, or the 1st after preparation.

Haku, Oboro, Tenten

This team is based off of the perma-stun that includes Shikamaru instead of Oboro. I have substituted Oboro as it becomes more efficient. Using Oboro you can either single stun or AoE stun, this is the same as with Haku. This gives diversity to the team as it allows you to target different members depending on opposing team. There is no clash within this team and only Tenten needs preparation in order to stun. When using this team I’d suggest you start off the first turn doing nothing, prepping Tenten maximum and save chakra for a turn so you’re less likely to get a chakra screw.

Pride Of The Hyuga:
Win 20 Battles With Neji In Your Team
Win 8 Battles In A Row With Neji

Neji, Gaara, Shikamaru

Yes, once again I am including Shikamaru within a team, it is not due to my fandom, rather to the fact that better characters you have yet to obtain so deal with it. Gaara can be used as bait within this team, but it is also highly advisable that you don’t use any ninjutsu chakra you receive as you can utilize him as well. Neji’s Gentle Fist attack lasts 2 turns, but commonly only hits for one of them as the opponent will tend to evade the 2nd turn of it, Shikamaru can fix this through his shadow strangulation. When Shikamaru is otherwise occupied with his strangulation you can instead save the chakra to use Neji’s 64 Palm to prevent invulnerability and to destroy one of their precious chakra per turn.

Shikamaru, Kidomaru, Neji

I realize the clash in this team is quite appalling but give me a chance here. The use of Shikamaru’s bloodline chakra comes at a minimum of once every 5 turns, Neji can use it on a consistent basis, as can Kidomaru. Neji may use the same combination with Shikamaru to insure that both turns of his gentle fist hit, but he can also use hit 64 palms to allow Kidomaru to strike a certain opponent with his golden arrow attack therefore reducing his health by 50 and now allowing Neji to kill him in 2 turns with a gentle fist offense. If one wishes to take the AoE approach once Kidomaru’s used his AoE he is unable to use it again for 5 turns now allowing the bloodline chakra to flow to Neji to be used once every other turn, and to Shikamaru to allow a mass stun for two of those five turns.

Neji, Gaara, Shizune

This is the team that I used to unlock Neji S, it was a breeze as I lost only once. Gaara stands on his own for his coffin and funeral, and Shizune and Neji work together to enable a kill, it’s quite simple really if you think about it. The strat is obvious, use it if you wish, but this is the team I used and got him the night he came out.

Coming Out Of Retirement:
Win 50 Battles With Any Sand Ninja On Your Team

Neji, Gaara, Shizune

This is the team that I used to unlock Neji S, it was a breeze as I lost only once. Gaara stands on his own for his coffin and funeral, and Shizune and Neji work together to enable a kill, it’s quite simple really if you think about it. The strat is obvious, use it if you wish, but this is the team I used and got him the night he came out. It also got me Chiyo.

Neji, Gaara, Shikamaru

Yes, once again I am including Shikamaru within a team, it is not due to my fandom, rather to the fact that better characters you have yet to obtain so deal with it. Gaara can be used as bait within this team, but it is also highly advisable that you don’t use any ninjutsu chakra you receive as you can utilize him as well. Neji’s Gentle Fist attack lasts 2 turns, but commonly only hits for one of them as the opponent will tend to evade the 2nd turn of it, Shikamaru can fix this through his shadow strangulation. When Shikamaru is otherwise occupied with his strangulation you can instead save the chakra to use Neji’s 64 Palm to prevent invulnerability and to destroy one of their precious chakra per turn.

Jiroubou, Temari, Kiba

First things, major WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! do not under any circumstance activate Jiroubou’s drain technique while Kiba’s twin wolf is in effect as it will negate all damage done to the opposing team with its destructible defense. The basis of this team is to use AoE skills to damage the opponent, and to support it with single target skills. After using Temari’s AoE along with say Jiroubou’s AoE you will have the opponent at 45 health, unless they have reduction, and therefore you can end that characters life with Jiroubou’s single target fist of nirvana for 30 single damage, and with Temari’s cutting whirlwind for 20 damage resulting in a kill for the cost of 3 chakra which you are quite likely to gain each turn. Instead of killing with the single target skills one may also use Kiba in order to deal that 45 damage to each opponent through his twin wolf skill and eliminate all the opponents in 3 turns for the cost of two chakra instead of 9 chakra.

Kiba, Tayuya, Kankuro

This team focuses of DoT AoE, the offensive moves of Kiba and Tayuya deal damage to the entire team over some time, and Kankuro, after he’s been prepped can either aid in that damage, or can use his black machine technique to deal 60/40 damage to an opponent therefore ending the DoT upon them at the cost of three random chakra. If one does not wish to use the DoT AoE portion of this team one can simply use Kiba’s Gatusga and Kankuro’s Black Machine technique with 12 damage already dealt from Tayuya for a kill. Tayuya’s stun may be utilized in either strategy to postpone the enemy and allow you to begin your DoT AoE onslaught again.

A True Artist:
Win 12 Battles With Any Akatsuki Member In Your Team

Gai, Shizune, Itachi/Oboro

With this team you’ll focus on using DoT moves while backing them with Gai’s strong whirlwind therefore dealing piercing damage to potentially kill the enemy. The lack of clash also adds to it’s effect and Shizune can remove any afflictions set on them such as Kakashi’s dogs.

Finding His Purpose:
Win 10 Battles Against Any Missing-Nin With Gaaraa Rehabiliated
Win 3 Battles In A Row Against Kimimaro With Gaara Rehabilitated
Win 2 Battles In A Row Against Deidara with Gaara Rehabilitated

Gaara Rehabilitated, Zabuza, and Chiyo

This team focuses on using some steady damage from Rehab and Chiyo, using this team you can utilize all types of chakra, when gifted with ninjutsu chakra you can manage to deal some AoE stuns from both Zabuza and Rehab, as such you have 2 turns with which you can stall the opponent while gathering your wits to deal with the opposing team. The only clash within this team is the ninjutsu, guarding against most AoE teams you have Zabuza to use his mist in order to prevent assault from teams such as perma stuns as they’ll tend to use at least Haku and Tenten who are both ranged physical characters, as such you are now immune to most of their effects and can easily win the match.

A Blank Slate:
Win 3 Battles Against Itachi Body Double With Any Of Team Kakashi (S)
Win 3 Battles Against Kisame Body Double With Any Of Team Gai (S)
Win 2 Battles In A Row Against Deidara With Naruto (S) Or Kakashi (S)
Win 2 Battles In A Row Against Sasori With Sakura (S) Or Chiyo (S)

Kakashi S, Rock Lee S, and Chiyo S

This team can be a lot of fun to use, if you one have patience, and two get a little lucky with your chakra. Not only can you heal your team bit by bit with Lee and add some reduction from him, this will aid when fighting AoE teams as you will often encounter them. Kakashi S can easily one reduce the stuns that are likely to pop up every couple games. Chiyo comes in handy in any match as she’ll pierce any defense for the full damage when using her stun and her cheap 20 DoT always comes in handy. Many combinations are possible here and often you’ll be able to execute at least 2 moves per turn, so enjoy this team and it’s perks.

A New Team Leader:
Win 6 Battles Against Any Member Of Team 7 (S) With Deidara Or Sasori
Win 5 Battles In A Row With Any Member Of Team 7 (S)

Sasori, Orochimaru and Baki

The basis of this team is defense, with offense, it’s a multifaceted team and the weaker they get they have a tendency to get stronger. Sasori is a tank, he gets stronger when he gets weaker, so moves like Orochimaru’s curse seal are effective and efficient when used upon Sasori as you get extra chakra and he gets the chance to deal more damage and stronger attacks. Baki is here to fill in a chakra gap as well as his piercing movements complete the circle of each character being able to deal with reduction, also with his Flak Jacket he has some of the best survivability in the whole game. There is only minor nin clash between all three characters with Orochimaru using it once for his summon and the others for their strongest moves it seems to not be much of a problem in each instance I’ve tested it in.

Kakashi S, Kisame BD, Zabuza

This team also is extremely defensive yet holds a strong offense along with it. Kakashi S can be traded for really any of the Shippuden Team 7 set as Naruto S would work just as well yet it would have slightly more clash, Sakura S has the same issue and Sai S would work well yet seems to clash quite a bit with Zabuza. Kisame BD holds some of the biggest effect here as he’ll boost the opponents cooldowns by 2 turns for 4 turns, even if killed the move will still last until the fourth turn resolves. Zabuza here stops the ever popular AoE teams with his mist and can ignore defense with his taijutsu movements, he also has an AoE stun if need be to stall for a moment. I placed Kakashi S here because of his Sharingan Imitation and his Mangekyou, which adds a bit more offense to this team. This is as much a strategy as I’ll give you because, if you’ve gotten to unlocking Yamato S you should be able to finish the rest of this for yourself.

Return Of The Snake:
Win 4 Battles Against Kyuubi Naruto Or Naruto S With Orochimaru
Win 5 Battles Against Yamato (S) With Any Other Member Of Team 7 (S)
Win 4 Battles In A Row With Orochimaru Or Kabuto

Orochimaru, Baki, Sakura

Basis of this team is cheap damage, Sakura has a cheap single stun (cost wise) and Baki has a cheap 20 piercing (once again cost wise). Orochimaru has a drain allowing this team to enter a pure hybrid category which makes it more difficult for many others to counter, the two main members of this team have reduction or a boost to their name and as such both are dangerous in 1 vs. 1 situations. Not much else to say for this other then it’s not really “noob” friendly due to the amount of pre-thought needed to properly execute it effectively.

Kakashi S, Kisame BD, Zabuza

This team also is extremely defensive yet holds a strong offense along with it. Kakashi S can be traded for really any of the Shippuden Team 7 set as Naruto S would work just as well yet it would have slightly more clash, Sakura S has the same issue and Sai S would work well yet seems to clash quite a bit with Zabuza. Kisame BD holds some of the biggest effect here as he’ll boost the opponents cooldowns by 2 turns for 4 turns, even if killed the move will still last until the fourth turn resolves. Zabuza here stops the ever popular AoE teams with his mist and can ignore defense with his taijutsu movements, he also has an AoE stun if need be to stall for a moment. I placed Kakashi S here because of his Sharingan Imitation and his Mangekyou, which adds a bit more offense to this team. This is as much a strategy as I’ll give you because, if you’ve gotten to unlocking Orochimaru S you should be able to finish the rest of this for yourself.

What Lies Beneath:
Win 3 Battles Against Kyuubi Naruto With Yamato (S)
Win 5 Battles Against Orochimaru Or Orochimaru (S) With Kyuubi Naruto
Win 4 Battles In A Row With Kyuubi Naruto Or Naruto (S)

Yamato, Kakashi, Sai

This is one of my more defensive teams, yet I tried to give it a bit of an offensive side as well, I did so by using characters who use several types of chakra for each of the characters. Kakashi will, odds are, be the first target in any situation for the opponent, as such having his Sharingan up is very important, BUT you can do quite well without Kakashi as you’ll still use all 4 chakra types. Honestly I can’t give you much of a strat for this team, all I can say is that it works, all you need to do is pay attention.

Kyuubi Naruto, Lee S, Chiyo

This team has a strong basis with damage around 20-40 damage as well as a moderate cost of about 2 chakra per attack though Chiyo and Kyuubi have their own formidable attacks that cost only a single chakra. This team will fair quite well against most types of teams and should only face difficulty with I’d say pure counter teams or extremely well built hybrid teams, other then that I don’t see any real complications from the opposing team affecting this team. Lee S has defensive measures that are important as all three will be major targets, most specifically though will be Chiyo. Chiyo is here only really to support the skills of Kyuubi and Lee rather then as the basis of a team as she is in several others, she can boost any of their attacks and also is able to add additional damage to the opponent reducing their health drastically. This is my team for this mission, it holds no clash and acts as a hybrid team…enjoy.

The Green Beast:
Win 2 Battles In A Row With Lee
Win 2 Battles In A Row With Tenten
Win 2 Battles In A Row With Neji
Win 4 Battles In A Row With Gai

Gaara, Zaku, Lee

To the unapplied eye this team may not seem like Zaku belongs, but take a closer look, the other two characters are prime targets for an opponent. For Lee it’s the danger of his 5th gate lotus that attracts the attention, while he can be invulnerable every other turn, what’s going to protect him on the off turn? For Gaara it’s the danger of his instant kill that attracts piercing damagers to him, he can have his reduction up for 3 turns and be invulnerable the fourth, but on the next cycle there will be a turn without protection or invulnerability, how will you protect him? Zaku is our answer to both problems, with one bloodline chakra he can set an invisible protection in front of either of them once every other turn. This will allow the team to last quite a while as they must first eliminate Zaku in order to be able to strike at either Lee or Gaara efficiently. Gaara and Lee during this time will be able to quickly eliminate the enemy, Gaara on those with reduction, Lee on those without it.

Lee, Ino, CSS

This team has a basis around spiking as well as stunning from Ino. Using CSS you can use bloodline chakra to gain the ninjutsu for CSS’ corrupt chidori and that will deal 60 damage leaving them with 40 health, then following up with either his DoT you can deal 25 with 10 if they move the next turn, then using Ino you can have a 50 chance to kill them with her body disruption. Lee, well he stands on his own with his gated lotus.

Hinata, Tenten, Shikamaru

For a mere taijutsu chakra you can stun the opponent for a turn, while they are stunned you can use Hinata’s 25 AoE as a stun, in most cases, will negate damage reduction.

In a perfect world one can win in 5 turns, one turn for preparation, and three that include a stun as well as 25 AoE, and one that consists of only the 25 AoE which will tend to be the 2nd turn, or the 1st after preparation.

Tayuya, Kidomaru, Tenten

This team has the obvious DoT AoE aspect, but in addition to that both Tayuya and Tenten have AoE stuns that they can utilize every few turns to stall the opponent. Kidomaru and here for two reasons, one if I stuck in Haku everyone would complain that my teams weren’t original and that one wouldn’t be, and two because Haku after his mirrors is near useless for the next 5 turns while his mirrors “cool down.” His spike can bring about an end to any major threat quickly, and his reduction and DoT AoE is annoying as hell and that’s why I picked Kidomaru. Tayuya has her DoT AoE, while this may be utilized I suggest not using her drain as it hurts more then helps. Tenten has the obvious AoE presence with 30 with no cooldown, this is most of the apparent firepower within this team.

Neji, Gaara, Shikamaru

Yes, once again I am including Shikamaru within a team, it is not due to my fandom, rather to the fact that better characters you have yet to obtain so deal with it. Gaara can be used as bait within this team, but it is also highly advisable that you don’t use any ninjutsu chakra you receive as you can utilize him as well. Neji’s Gentle Fist attack lasts 2 turns, but commonly only hits for one of them as the opponent will tend to evade the 2nd turn of it, Shikamaru can fix this through his shadow strangulation. When Shikamaru is otherwise occupied with his strangulation you can instead save the chakra to use Neji’s 64 Palm to prevent invulnerability and to destroy one of their precious chakra per turn.

Shikamaru, Kidomaru, Neji

I realize the clash in this team is quite appalling but give me a chance here. The use of Shikamaru’s bloodline chakra comes at a minimum of once every 5 turns, Neji can use it on a consistent basis, as can Kidomaru. Neji may use the same combination with Shikamaru to insure that both turns of his gentle fist hit, but he can also use hit 64 palms to allow Kidomaru to strike a certain opponent with his golden arrow attack therefore reducing his health by 50 and now allowing Neji to kill him in 2 turns with a gentle fist offense.

Gai, Shizune, Itachi/Oboro

Preferably this would be completed with Itachi, but the order you complete these in is of your choice so….. But with this team you’ll focus on using DoT moves while backing them with Gai’s strong whirlwind therefore dealing piercing damage to potentially kill the enemy.
