Ello, talk to me about Dokkodo, what makes it unique in comparison to Sage Mode etc. OOC or IC training?
OOC training is fine for this also.

So Dokkodo it's unique because it combines Senjutsu and Kenjutsu to make a new fighting style that utilizes the ability of natural energy to petrify targets after they take damage from a Dokkodo enhanced Sword Strike.
Overall it's a pretty unique and interesting sword form

Well, do remember that this isn't Sage Mode, therefore when you utilize the mode itself it's quite different. Anyways, here's the first techniques:

( Dokkōdō: Kakusu Shinjitsu ) - The Alone Way: Hidden Truths
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Rank: B - S
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 20 - 40
Damage: 40 - 80
Description: This technique is comparable to the Samurai Saber Technique in both its concept and execution. By channeling Senjutsu into the blade, the user becomes capable of creating crescents of natural energy sharpened to slice through metal and bone effortlessly. These crescents are capable of combating equal ranked Elemental Ninjutsu. Unlike Samurai Saber Technique, however, these cannot create chakra weapons to attack with, instead just creating slashes and strikes following the user's strike motion. They crescents can carry the effects of either form of Senkenjutsu.

( Dokkōdō: Kendangan ) - The Alone Way: Sword Bullet
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Rank: B - S
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 20 - 40
Damage: 40 - 80
Description: The user channels Senjutsu chakra to his sword, focusing it into the hilt of the weapon. With this chakra coalescing to form a Senjutsu chakra replica of the hilt, the user causes it to fire off at the target quickly. This was created to disarm opponents by targeting their hands and wrists to strike quickly and cause them to lose grip of their weapon. If successful, this causes the opponent to be unable to utilize their hands for two turns. The user can substitute the chakra hilt for a replica of their sword for higher damage, disabling the use of the targetted limb for twice as long as well.
Note: Can only be used with Dokkodo active. Ronin and Samurai are capable of utilizing outside of the mode.
Note: Sword Replica is an S rank ability and creates up to 5 replicas to send at targets. Can only be done 3 times in total.

Talk to me about em.

A staple of the Dokkodo Mode, this technique simply releases crescents of natural energy which can carry with the the effects of Senkenjutsu. Corrosive variant would lower the target's damage shaving and the Petrifying variant would cause an opponent to become petrified after three turns.

A versatile technique because not only can it disarm an opponent but also cause them to lose the ability to utilize thier hands. So it's effective when fighting ninja because they will be unable to perform handseals.

Great, next two:

( Dokkōdō: Shiraha Nagashi ) - The Alone Way: White Blade Flow
Type: Defensive
Rank: A - S
Range: Short
Chakra: 30 - 40
Damage: N/A
Description: After entering Dakkodo, the user aims at incoming targets and slashes at the target with a Senjutsu enhanced melee attack. When the sword makes contact with the target, the released chakra quickly corrodes through the obstacle, weakening by exposing the obstacle's "shatter point". This is a point on the technique that the Senjutsu compromises, causing it to shatter in a glow of white glass-like shards, lending to the technique's name. It is capable of destroying solids and liquids of equal chakra or lower while dispersing energy as well.
Note: Can only be used with Dakkodo active. Ronin and Samurai are capable of utilizing outside of the mode.

( Dokkōdō: Gatotsu ) - The Alone Way: Fang Point
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: A - S
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 30 - 40
Damage: 60 - 80
Description: The user gathers senjutsu around his sword, creating an extended aura around it that glows a cyan color as the scales around the user's arm extends to the blade. This gives it a harsher texture and weighs the blade, augmenting it with a unique effect. Due to the scales and Senjutsu empowering the blade, strikes that land cover a wider surface and applies the corrosive Senjutsu's effects, deteriorating anything it comes into contact with including sealing scripts and anything else that can interact with Senjutsu. This can even allow him to destroy advanced seals like the Flying Thunder God seal, the Shinigami, and others. In addition to this, should foes be struck with it then their damage resistance will drop by 15 or 20, depending on the rank of this technique used. They will also take damage appropriate to the rank used.
Note: Can only be used with Dakkodo active. Ronin and Samurai can only use if they have Dakkodo as their mode.

Now we get to the bread and butter. Requiring Dokkodo as a Mode, this allows for Senjutsu enhanced strikes which can "shatter" a technique. It's a very important technique in the Dokkodo arsenal.

( Dokkōdō: Gatotsu ) - The Alone Way: Fang Point
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: A - S
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 30 - 40

Another staple technique which requires Dokkodo to be held, this technique can even stop Sealing Techniques, and anything else that can be affected by Senjutsu with a corrosive effect. I like this technique becuase it can also lower a targets damage resistance, meaning beefy bios can take a lot of damage if this technique lands.

Alright, alright, alright. Talk to me.

( Dokkōdō: Tenmetsu Hikari ) – The Alone Way: Blinding Light
Type: Supplementary
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 40 ( -10 per turn )
Damage: N/A
Description: By using the chakra shroud granted from the Dakkodo technique, the user causes the built up chakra in the arms and torso to dissipate and spread through the field in a bright flood instantly. By spiking the chakra, the user causes multiple effects, the first of which being that the chakra burns a bright color, effectively blinding anyone present via sight and chakra sensory. Secondly, the user causes the chakra around the field to grow higher and denser, creating a box of sorts around the field to prevent escape or retreat. Third, the user can make use of the chakra flooding the field around short-range of himself to create sword replicas to fight with, allowing him to either send various arcs and blades to the target or create a replica of himself 5 meters away from the target to use other Kenjutsu based attacks. Because the sword is the catalyst for these effects, the effects last as long as the user maintains hold on the blade. If his hold on the blade ends, this technique and Dakkodo will be forcibly ended and the drawbacks triggered early.
Note: Lasts 4 turns or when the user lets the sword go, whichever is shorter. Can only be used 3 times.

( Dokkōdō ) - The Alone Way
Type: Mode
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 40 ( -10 per turn )
Damage: N/A ( +30/40 to Kenjutsu/Taijutsu )
Description: By taking a stance and channeling copious amounts of chakra while drawing in natural energy into their blade, the user enters a swordsmen state known as Dokkodo or the Alone Way. The chakra creates several markings across the user's lower jaw and neck, extending down both arms to fully cover the forearms and arms in scale-like platings as a chakra shroud that grants a large Vizard-like mask across their faces. The general appearance differs from user to user but these traits are shared. After activation, the user gains access to the exclusive art of Senjutsu utilized via Kenjutsu in two unique forms. The first form allows the user's techniques to carry the ability to cause a foe to become petrified 3 turns after being cut, the wound drawing in natural energy and prevents passive healing until healed by outside sources or the target is petrified, whichever comes sooner. The second form allows for techniques to carry the ability to corrode techniques and targets resistances, eating away at natural defenses when striking targets to weaken and prevent natural damage resistances. Should targets be hit by the corrosive Senkenjutsu, they will take the listed damage of the technique. In addition to this, when techniques land, the amount of chakra spent will be deducted from the object's damage resistance capabilities to cause it to plummet ( i.e. if an A rank Kenjutsu was used and lands and the target can shave 20 damage, 15 ( half of 30 chakra ) of it will be removed to leave 5 Damage Shaving ). Should their damage resistance drop to 0, it will remain there until being healed by outside sources.
Note: Can only be used 3 times each battle, each use lasting up to 8 turns. After ending, the user cannot use A rank and above physical techniques ( Tai/Ken, Jutsu with extended/detailed physical movements, etc ) for two turns and the effects of the 20% Torso Health drawbacks trigger. Each subsequent use adds 10% to the Torso Health drawbacks.
Note: Samurai and Ronin are capable of using Dokkodo techniques without entering the state though if they do, they experience a 10 damage increase compared to shinobi using the mode.

The actual technique which grants this Mode its name, The Alone Way is the main technique granted through the Mode and allows you to power up your Kenjutsu / Taijutsu techniques with a chakra shroud that extends to the user's blade grant it petrifying ability after 3 turns or a corrosive effect causing it to reduce the damage shaving of targets.

A question however, Do you know if this mode's abilities apply to all forms of Kenjutsu? Such as Elemental, Spiritual, and Samurai, and other forms of Ninkenjutsu? Is it possible to apply this to Kenjutsu based CFSs?

A unique technique this jutsu which requires the user to actively be in the Mode to utilize. This technique has multiple effects and I actually have a couple questions.

The technique 1st creates a blinding light which can blind both sight and prevent chakra sensing. Is it correct to assume this blinding would affect Doujutsu users as well? And for clarification doesn't blinding a doujutsu prevent the opponent's usage of thier doujutsu abilities as well?

2nd, This technique makes it to where the opponent is unable to retreat or escape by spreading chakra into the field and condensing it, now there a bit of conflict regarding the technique's range and what's described in the technique. The technique's Range says short, but the technique's description says the user's chakra spreads around the field. So does the technique actually extend to long range? How much freedom do you have to condense the chakra around the field, can you force your opponent to stay in short range of you? Mid range? Or does it only just prevent them from leaving the battle altogether?

3rd ability states that you create replicas of your sword within short range of you to fight with by sending arcs or the blades themselves at the opponent. Now how perfect of a replica are we talking? Are these like shadow clone copies, or perfect replicas of the object and user. For example, If I have a CW does each sword replica have the same abilities as my CW? If I am able to send Arcs and/or the Blades themselves at my target, how much damage do these deal on thier own and how much control do I have over the blades? Can I have them floating beside me? Can I create these replicas in the air, beneath the ground as long as they are generated within short range of me? This technique also allows me to create a replica of myself no less than 5 meters away from the opponent. Again how perfect is the replica, will the replica have any of my boost etc, is it a physical copy since it can use other Kenjutsu based techniques or simply pure chakra?

Samurai and Ninken sure, Spiritual it does not. Would double check in case that changed or something, but it does not apply to Spiritual afaik, and it doesn't really fit to enhance them based on how it works.

It would blind dojutsu yes, and it depends on which dojutsu and technique being used, but generally it would not honestly. Like if you use it on a rinnegan user, they can still deva path you for instance.

It's blinding effect is the whole field, the box only covers short range.

The replicas should be basic ones if I'm not mistaken, and would deal damage based on what other kenjutsu you use through them. The other parts of the questions I would direct them to LoK in the Q&A as I am not entirely sure how they decided those would function.

Any more questions regarding these or any of the previous techniques you've learned?

None, on that note, I'll direct further questions to the Q&A.
