Probably my favorite Kakashi Jutsu, this version of
Lightning Blade is a killer. First, it can either
hurt or kill an opposing Ninja (depending on how
many BR's there are), plus he gets pumped up both on
Combat and Support depending how many there are. To
some that's just crazy. But, I love the effect. Try
it and see!

The first (and I'll spoil this) and only jutsu to
make the countdown, we bring you the best of the
best of single user devastation. It's cheap, 1 fire
and one colorless and you can devastate an entire
team. Of course, this card is best when your
opponent has 5 or more battle rewards, because you
will for sure kill and ninja and most likely
overwhelm the other two. Not only that, but Kakashi
doesn't even have to be up front to use this
monster. He can fire it off from support. Definitely
worth its Super Rare status, this card can swing the
tide of battle in a single use, let alone when you
run them in threes. This think is so amazing, it
makes the other versions of Lightning Blade look
like a joke in comparison. That's saying something
too, because I've always thought all the other
versions were pretty good until this beast was
released. It can't be fanned, can't be hit with
subjective. The only thing that can stop it is
Sharingan or the Sasuke from Monday (and water wall
too, I suppose...) If the Kakashi from Lineage uses
this, it's even more mean. It's like a nuclear bomb,
for only two chakra. The only thing that keeps this
card from being broken is the fact that it has only
Limited: 4/5 (Not hard to draft a Kakashi)
Art: Disappointingly lame. The other two SR versions
have much better art, but thats just me.
Lightning Blade (J-US066)
One of the most powerful jutsu in the game, and
having the sole user being one of the best jutsu in
the game, Lightning Blade is a force to be reckoned
with. The ability to get an insanely high pump AND
knock a ninja off is powerful. The ability to get a
smaller pump and shoot a ninja is powerful, also.
This card has only one downside, which isn't even a
downside: it has one user. Luckily that user is an
insanely good ninja.
Definitely a top 10.
Lightning Blade US-066
Today we are taking a look at our #7 card of the
2008 year. This card is none other than Lightning
Blade from the Chosen set that came out early in the
This card is the best Lightning Blade out there and
is a really solid addition to the fire element and
it is also a Super Rare to boot. This is why
Lightning Blade is good...
First off, Lightning Blade is Fire… Like Fire needs
anything more… I swear.
Anyways, Kakashi is the only user, but that doesn’t
matter since Fire always runs some form of Kakashi.
The Jutsu cost is 1 Fire and 1 of any chakra. This
eliminates a lot of possible negation like Gigantic
Fan from the picture and it’s also a low costing
Jutsu, which allows you chain other things if your
opponent does indeed chain to Lightning Blade going
off. The effect that Lightning Blade has is just
ridiculous. It reads: Target: 1 Ninja Battling
Against the User. The effect is: If your opponent
has 5 or more battle rewards, discard the target. If
your opponent has 4 or less battle rewards, give 1
damage to the target. Additionally, the user gets
+X/+X during this turn. X = the number of your
opponent’s battle rewards. That’s ridiculous
considering Kakashi is a late game ninja and your
opponent will more than likely have more than 5
battle rewards if it is a close game. If your
opponent does have 5 battle rewards, you discard 1
of their ninjas then get a pump, so in this example
Kakashi gets +5/+5, which should more than likely
make the battle an outstanding victory so you would
potentially kill 2 ninja and leave
1 back ninja injured. This card is definitely a game
changer and more than likely a game finisher to
boot. I love running at least 1 copy of this card in
Mono Fire. The card is still great if your opponent
has 4 or less battle rewards, but you won’t get to
experience the whole effect.
Overall, this card is amazing if you have Kakashi on
your field. However, since its requirement is only
Kakashi, it’s situational. And it’s also situational
depending on how battle rewards your opponent has.
If you do have the requirements and your opponent
does have those 5 battle rewards, then this card
more than likely will mean game for you in the
upcoming few turns.
I cant help but say "Falcon PUNCH!!!" whenever i see
this card. Any way, Lightning Blade from set 9 is
our # 8 card of 2008. Can only be used by kakashi
hatake, which is not that bad. For 1 fire and 1
random chakra, you can discard a ninja if your
opponent has 5 or more battle rewards. If they have
4 or less, give 1 damage to that ninja. And
regardless of the effect, Kakashi gets +1/+1 for
each of your opponent's battle rewards. This card is
just amazing. This can cause so many overwhelming
Limited: 3.5/5(one kakashi makes it hard)
Constructed: 4.5/5 My fav lightning blade so far!
The Poo Toucher
Today we are reviewing on of the most influential
cards of the entire year. Number 7, Lightning Blade
from the Chosen (set 9)
Lightning Blade is one of the cards that 08 sanin
winner Jerry Balentuangin used to effectively end
the reign of over 9000. This card, along with a few
others, made people stop using over 9000 (a major
achievement as 9K was everywhere for just under 6
months, that's 2 full formats!) That alone makes
this a easy choice for the top 10 list.
Lightning Blade is one of the only good cards that
is a 1 user jutsu card. For kakashi only, it not
only gives 1-2 damage but pumps by 0-9, that's just
flat out good. Add to that, it's user is either a
turn 5 ninja who upon release wins battle rewards
when he wins the fight or is a turn 4 who becomes a
7/4 when his effect triggers. This was also before
the OC's, so the big name deck was insanely
vulnerable to this jutsu and it's negation can't
even touch this jutsu card.
Now this card has seen a considerably less amount of
play with the release of Lineage of Legends (set 10)
and Sasuke Uchiha Overflowing Chakra, but during
it's time, this card was all over the competitive
scene. This card has amazing synergy with the ninja
dog decks as it gives damage, pumps to outstanding
more times than not, and is extremely cost
It's one true downside is that it's only going to be
used by 1 ninja after turn 4, but it's not a bad 1-2
of in the ninja dog archetype.
It's cards like this that tips fire back into the
supremacy that it's seemingly maintained
competitively during the entire game. I don't mind
that fire has it all (great curve, amazing tutors,
unbeatable jutsu.) but bandai, I as a lightning
player wouldn't mind a might(y) guy jutsu that's on
par with this one.
Constructed: 4 out of 5. It's cards like this that
make sanin winners :)
Limited: 5 out of 5. AD kakashi is in this set, and
it's an uncommon.
Art: 2 out of 5. Not impressed, I liked lol's art
Until next time, truly yours. The Poo Toucher.
Welcome Pojo'ers! Today we review Lightning Blade
from The Chosen (at least, I assume it's from TC).
Let's see. This card is very situational. HOWEVER,
the least it will do is 1 damage for 2 chakra.
That's already a plus. Only Kakashi Hatake can use
it, and it's targeting 1 ninja battling against the
user instead of User. He also gets +x/+x, depending
on how many BR's your opponent has on you; 5 or more
is a +5/+5 AND discard 1 ninja battling. There isn't
much better than that for 2 chakra.
People really like this Lightning Blade more than
others; I'm one of them. The others are also just
too situational, and your Kakashi can be a back
ninja if you play this Lightning Blade.
The downside to this card is, it doesn't really show
its true colors unless you're losing the game. It
can however turn the tides of the game in your
Also, with Itachi G being T5 now, Kakashi may not be
ran in 3's like it used to be. Of course, you could
always run Kakashi [Anbu Days] and throw this card
into the jutsu pile.
Limited: 1/5 3 Kakashis are in the set, 1 is a
7. Lightning Blade
Now here's what a character specific Jutsu should
do! This is something I'd like to see other MCs get,
like Asuma or The Third Hokage, but still, it's a
doozy. It's specific to Kakashi costing one fire and
one colorless, and targets one ninja battling him.
What it does now depends on the amount of BRs your
opponent has taken. If it's four or less, do one
damage to the target. If they have taken five or
more, you discard the target. And either way,
Kakashi gets +X/+X, with X being the battle rewards
your opponent has taken.
That is a game changer in
just about any situation it goes off. It's almost
guaranteed to OV a team, and even if it doesn't,
it'll cripple it beyond repair. This card's true
power was shown with the last Sannin winner and one
other card that we'll be getting to later. This is
Kakashi's best Jutst, and if you're running three
Kakashi, you should throw at least one of these in
your deck. It's a great jutsu to get off, and it's
cheap enough to avoid Gig fan, which is still a
I really like this card, and with the new Sannin's
card soming out, this card will only get better.
Constructed: 4/5 Good, great, not perfect.
Limited: If you get Kakashi/5 If not, 1/5
Art: 1/5 Boring...boring...boring...
7: Lightning Blade
Okay, in my first review as part of the Naruto CotD
staff (yay) it is #7 of the countdown, a card that
sent shockwaves through the Chosen when it came out
(of course, they weren't as big because, well
reprints are fun) and that is Lightning Blade. Now
this alone, is probably the best card to come out of
the Chosen, reprint or no-reprint, and it's still
great today. Now for a Fire and a generic chakra you
get two things, if you were stingy and stopped your
opponent for a while, you can give 1 damage to a
ninja your opponent controls if they have 4 or less
Battle Rewards. If you were a little more loose in
your blocking, you can discard a ninja, if they have
5 or more BR's. The best part is, Kakashi gains
power equal to the amount of BR's your opponent has,
both Combat AND Support. That means, Kakashi can sit
in the back, his usual spot, and nuke ninjas with
ease. The only bad thing, is that only Kakashi can
use it. Of course, if you run that fun Suicide Dog
deck, it's not too much of a problem. This seems
like a good spot for LB and I don't see it going
down from the ranks of greatness too soon. I just
wish it's art was the LoL art.
Limited: 2/5 (meh Kakashi's in the Chosen from last
memory, have to hope to pull ES)
