(Bakuton: Kami Teikoku no Saifuku) – Explosion Release: Vestments of Divine Imperials
Type: Offensive, Defensive, Supplementary
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 40 (-10 per turn)
Damage: 80
Description: The user focuses and channels copious amounts of Bakuton chakra throughout their entire body causing the user’s very form to manifest the properties of pure Bakuton chakra. The result is the user’s body, not simply their skin, will turn into raw explosive energy. The explosive energy manifests itself as a dark bloody crimson expanding throughout the user. This technique, in essence, causes the user to transform into a living bomb. Vestments of Divine Imperials provides inherent natural defenses through this transformation. However, despite what this technique suggests, this does not cause the user to become a suicide bomb. The basic defenses provided by Vestments of Divine Imperials is essentially a reactive armor taking on the properties of an explosion while also allowing the user, because of the very nature of their body, to become immune to their own explosions. The reactive defense provided by Vestments causes opposing techniques, within elemental weaknesses and strengths, to strike the user’s body and produce a reactive natural explosion. The explosions produced act as a natural defense enabling the user to neutralize invading forces. These explosions, due to their neutralizing nature, will reflect the size, speed, and power of the invading force. Because of the user’s incredible control enabled by Vestments of Divine Imperials they will be able to decide entirely at their volition whether objects which strike them will be met by an explosion or not. This only applies to objects which the user has awareness of. Objects and forces which strike the user unknowingly will be naturally met by an explosion of the above set proportions whether according to the user’s will or not. Because the user effectively transforms and converts his body into raw explosive energy he sheds certain traits of his biological body. No longer can the user suffer from pain, rendering them unable to use pain to release from illusionary techniques. Additionally, the user can no longer suffer from the biological effects of poisons, yet certain corrosive agents can still harm the user’s explosive form in some ways if not able to be overpowered by the explosion. However, the user is also vulnerable to Lightning Release techniques due to their unique interactions with Explosion Release. In essence Lightning Release is able to diffuse explosions effectively resulting in the paralysis of the user should he or she be struck. This technique enables the user to defend against S-Ranks and below of neutral elements (A-Ranks and below for weaknesses, F-Ranks and below for strengths). If the user is struck by an attack weaker than their transformation, their explosive form will not weaken or decrease in power at all. If the user is struck with an attack that will neutralize their transformation, the two cancel one another out and the user reverts to their original form unharmed. If the user is struck with an attack that overpowers their transformation, the user's body reverts to it's original form and sustains the remaining damage (after the collision of techniques). Aside from this the user’s ability to weave hand seals, mold chakra, and otherwise all abilities prior to their conversion remain normal. However, while Vestments of Divine Imperials is active the user is only able to use Bakuton and the elements which compose it, their primary elemental affinity and any CEs based on these elements as well as non-elemental abilities. Vestments of Divine Imperials lasts for four turns and can be used twice per battle. On the turn this technique expires the user is unable to produce Lightning, Earth, or Explosive techniques above S-Rank in the same turn. Additionally, upon expiration the user’s body is returned back to its normal biological state. Due to the conversion the user’s base speed will be reduced by 2 levels one turn thereafter. Explosions which occur from the user’s body, voluntarily or not, happen passively but cost one of the user’s three moves per turn. Seals and items otherwise on the user's body during their transformation retain their normal abilities. Body seals will become inscribed as explosive energy in their normal positions.

Break this one down for me. I'll try to explain all the facets of this technique that you miss; it can be a lot to take in. It's one of my regrettably longer customs. For a time it was one of my signature techniques, so it definitely packs a punch.

Do you think this is a technique that could be done as a custom in today's customs?

Imperfect would be proud at the length :unsure:
So, the name of the jutsu indicates that it serves as a baseline for other imperial techniques, much like Thanos' infinity gauntlet is to the infinity stones. But it does have its own separate abilities.​
One of the noticeable features when put in praxis is the veneer of explosive energy that encases you in lieu of your skin. Kinda like when Naruto goes 4 tails or 6 tails. This works as a natural armor, foreign touches will be met with an explosion relative to their size, speed and power. So something as insignificant as a kunai hitting you would cause a small explosion. Conversely, an A-rank earthen boulder of sizable proportions would be met with a rather large A-rank explosion. And although these explosions are under your volition, a nice nuance is even if lacking awareness these explosions hold true. Therefore a natural downside is a comrade or a summon touching you without your knowledge. Drawing loose comparisons, this natural reactive armor follows Newton's 3rd law of motion to an extent. In the case the damage points of another technique match the damage points of the vestment you're operating on, the two will subsequently cancel and you will revert back to your usual self with no sustained damage. And if it has higher damage points you'll also revert back to your original form and retain the left over damage. In either case you will experience the after effects of undergoing such an intense transformation (reduced base speed by 2). These collisions still respect elemental interactions (strengths, weakness and whatnot). Speaking of which, the nature of bakuton also makes it so that while using this technique you are at a natural disadvantage against lightning jutsus.​
Body transforming into a living bomb also extends itself to other advantages, namely no longer suffering from effects of poisons, making you a good match-up for those who specialize in the area. But you can still be affected by certain poisons if they can't be overpowered by the explosions.​
Main con of this technique is forgoing your skin prevents you from breaking higher ranked genjutsus by way of self harm simply because those receptors aren't there anymore. So you're required to use Kai or a body surge of the nature of earth, lightning, bakuton, your primary affinity or any CE's based on the aforementioned, as those are what you're limited to while this jutsu is active. Although, using Kai means resetting your perturbed chakra network by stopping it forcefully. So I'm wondering if that would dispel vestment completely?​
I'm not sure if it can be done as a custom in today's customs, but something tells me you can't. If you could outline some of the things you're allowed to do and not allowed to do when submitting bakuton customs, that'd be awesome ^^.​

Forgot to reply, lol.

Nah Genjutsu Kai wouldn't dispel the state. But its definitely not a recommend means to release from illusions compared to others. And yeah, it can't lol. So use it wisely! If you ever have any doubts about the technique you can always ask.


(Bakuton: Teikoku Busō) – Explosion Release: Imperial Armament
Type: Offensive, Defensive, Supplementary
Rank: C – S
Range: Short – Long
Chakra: 15 – 40 (-10 per turn)
Damage: 30 – 80
Description: This technique allows the user to produce Explosive chakra from their body or within short-range around their location. The chakra typically will take an orange, yellow, or crimson color in its form; although this color characteristic is largely cosmetic and can be influenced by external techniques which influence light or coloration in explosions. The Explosive chakra can be shaped and formed in accordance to the user’s wishes. Like all Explosion Release techniques the chakra will detonate when coming in contact with an opposing force or solid matter. Alternatively the user can keep the chakra inert allowing it to interact with matter and forces without detonating. This requires the user to be aware of the interaction though. The explosions produced by Imperial Armament can be angled away from the user’s position to negate damage and recoil. A and S-Rank applications of this technique require the use of ten chakra per turn for their sustainment. S-Rank explosions produced by Armament create an explosion spanning mid-range from its impact location. The user is also capable of producing multiple objects through the usage of Imperial Armament; their collective strength always being equivalent to the applied rank. S-Rank applications can be used three times per battle and cannot be used in consecutive turns. When the S-Rank version is used, no S-Rank or above Blast Release techniques in the user's next turn.

Next one!

The equivalent to that one wood release jutsu that lets you create anything from your imagination. To be fair a lot of AEs have their versions as well, if not canon then as an approved custom. Its biggest strengths are its inherent flexibility in terms of malleability and the fact that you can control detonations. S rank applications are limited to 3 to prevent abuse lol. And of course recoil is negated and explosions can be directed at an angle away from the user. So really a jutsu useful in almost all circumstances.​
Few questions. My first is, say if you create a ball with this jutsu, are you able to freely control the ball around the terrain with mental commands and such? And my second question is, say you make a katana from this jutsu or whatever, and you throw it at the opponent. While it's travelling, are you able to remotely add more chakra to it to increase its size and/or change its shape, or perhaps even increase its rank by one?​

(Bakuton: Jitsuryoku Sengen) – Explosion Release: Potentate Proclamation
Type: Supplementary
Rank: B
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: N/A
Description: Potentate Proclamation is designed to be used while the Vestments of Divine Imperials is active. This technique allows for the user to manipulate on going explosions on the battlefield by infusing their Bakuton chakra into the explosion. The explosion, while still active, will be absorbed into the user’s Vestment state allowing for it to be seamlessly integrated into their explosive body. In essence, this technique acts to extend the duration on Vestments of Divine Imperials by integrating additional energy into the form. Thus, for each B or A Rank explosion consumed by Potentate Proclamation, Vestments of Divine Imperials will be extended by two turns. Should the user consume an S or Forbidden Rank explosion they will be capable of extending Vestments by an additional three turns. Of course, while this technique is used the user will have effectively ended the explosion in question neutralizing it entirely themselves by integrating it into their body. Because this technique simply acts to infuse an explosion it will take little to no time at all allowing for smooth transitioning between techniques. Alternatively, Potentate Proclamation can be applied to absorb semi-sentient Explosive familiars. This application allows the user to integrate the familiar’s abilities into the user’s body; this effectively voids the sustained chakra cost of the familiar. Upon expiration of this technique this will cause the separation of user and familiar. By consuming sentient creations Potentate Proclamation effectively binds their duration to Vestments of Divine Imperials. Thus, if a familiar is absorbed and will remain on the field for two more turns while Vestments will remain active for three turns then the familiar will remain absorbed and active until Vestments expires. Potentate Proclamation can be used three times per battle and will remain active until Vestments of Divine Imperials expires.

(Bakuton: Teikoku Busō) – Explosion Release: Imperial Armament
Type: Offensive, Defensive, Supplementary
Rank: C – S
Range: Short – Long
Chakra: 15 – 40 (-10 per turn)
Damage: 30 – 80
Description: This technique allows the user to produce Explosive chakra from their body or within short-range around their location. The chakra typically will take an orange, yellow, or crimson color in its form; although this color characteristic is largely cosmetic and can be influenced by external techniques which influence light or coloration in explosions. The Explosive chakra can be shaped and formed in accordance to the user’s wishes. Like all Explosion Release techniques the chakra will detonate when coming in contact with an opposing force or solid matter. Alternatively the user can keep the chakra inert allowing it to interact with matter and forces without detonating. This requires the user to be aware of the interaction though. The explosions produced by Imperial Armament can be angled away from the user’s position to negate damage and recoil. A and S-Rank applications of this technique require the use of ten chakra per turn for their sustainment. S-Rank explosions produced by Armament create an explosion spanning mid-range from its impact location. The user is also capable of producing multiple objects through the usage of Imperial Armament; their collective strength always being equivalent to the applied rank. S-Rank applications can be used three times per battle and cannot be used in consecutive turns. When the S-Rank version is used, no S-Rank or above Blast Release techniques in the user's next turn.

(Bakuton: Tei’i) – Explosion Release: Imperial Majesty
Type: Offensive, Defensive, Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short
Chakra: 30 (-5 per turn)
Damage: N/A (60)
Description: Imperial Majesty is a highly versatile Explosion Release technique to be used while Vestments of Divine Imperials is active. Applying the user’s explosive energy state he or she will produce explosions at any point on their body enabling them to be propelled against the air in the direction of their choosing. The explosions are highly versatile in nature allowing for the user to shape and manipulate them upon creation effectively negating recoil and preventing damage by angling the explosions outwards while also determining their width. The explosions, as previously mentioned, will propel the user against the air allowing for the user to take evasive measures in order to avoid techniques within logical reason and speed. Alternatively, this technique can be used to propel the user and then be sustained enabling for a limited form of flight/levitation by setting off a small chain reaction of explosions at the chosen location on the user’s body. The chain of explosions used to sustain this technique is maintained by passively draining the user’s chakra over time. When Imperial Majesty is used offensively or defensively the user can instead apply the propulsion against a living body or opposing technique, respecting elemental weaknesses and strengths. The explosion will act to propel the user in the opposite direction of the targeted body inflicting A-Rank damage. Imperial Majesty can be used four times per battle.

(Bakuton: Ten’i) – Explosion Release: Imperial Authority
Type: Offensive, Defensive, Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short - Long
Chakra: 30
Damage: N/A
Description: Imperial Authority is designed to only be used while Vestments of Divine Imperials is active. Applying the user’s Explosive energy state the user becomes able to shape their body into anything which suits their needs at the given moment. The technique can produce appendages of varying shapes and sizes to be used as weapons to strike an opponent. Authority can go as far as allowing the user to shape their body into whatever form comes from their imagination as long as the size does not exceed twice their original form. When Vestments of Divine Imperials is deactivated or expires the user’s form will revert to its original shape and size. Reverting to the user’s original form with this technique requires the user use one of their three moves per turn. Imperial Authority can be used four times per battle.

(Bakuton: Teikoku Kagayaki) – Explosion Release: Imperial Radiance
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: N/A
Chakra: N/A (+5 chakra to applied techniques)
Damage: N/A
Description: Imperial Radiance is an uncharacteristically passive and tame technique compared to the nature of Explosion Release. This technique, instead of aiding in spreading further destruction, aids in tactical applications to cause confusion to opposing forces. Through the use of Bakuton chakra the user is capable of manipulating explosions which they will produce over the next three turns. This added manipulation allows the user to cause the inferno produced by the explosions to manipulate the natural light of the battlefield and explosion causing the explosions to work similarly to flash bombs. The radius of the affected area varies depending on the power and size of the explosion. Essentially, explosions which extend to short range will be capable of blinding those within mid-range. Thus the technique is capable of causing a flash within one range higher than the explosion itself. Of course, in the case of long-range explosions this matters little. While this technique is active the user is able to determine whether an explosion will produce a flash. The blinding effects of an explosion under Imperial Radiance simply last for the duration equivalent to that of an average flash bomb. Because the explosions occur at the user’s volition they are able to briefly close their eyes and time it with the flash of light in order to prevent their own blinding. Imperial Radiance can be used three times per battle and lasts for three turns.

(Bakuton: Ryōiki no Ten'nō) – Explosion Release: Domain of the Emperor
Type: Offensive, Supplementary
Rank: S
Range: Short – Mid
Chakra: 40 (-10 per turn)
Damage: N/A (80)
Description: Through direct contact with a solid surface the user will focus their Explosive chakra into it causing it to diffuse evenly throughout the applied surface. The Explosive chakra will quickly diffuse up to mid-range from the user’s initial location lacing the terrain with chakra unbeknownst to opponents lacking special capabilities, like Doujutsu or Sensory. In its diffused state this technique offers no direct offensive potential simply acting to lace the terrain with Explosive chakra essentially marking the surface as the Emperor’s domain. Domain of the Emperor will passively drain 10 chakra per turn from its user allowing in order to be sustained. While active the opponent will be unable to use Earth Release techniques which emerge from the ground. Domain of the Emperor essentially emulates its natural oppressive ability through this lacing of Explosive chakra. Alternatively, this technique can be used to converge the diffused chakra into a single location by pooling it beneath a targeted location. This convergence can be performed immediately upon initiation of this technique, at the cost of a single move, or can be performed after the diffused chakra has been laced into the surface, costing an additional move. The explosion produced by this alternative application will cause the earth to rupture beneath the targeted location which can encompass all of short-range from its location. The rupturing will be proceeded by the normal rumbling sound accompanied by all average earth techniques followed by an immediate explosion. The explosion will both carry with it the normal heat and force as well as the ruptured earth, forming a highly effective blunt and sharp shrapnel. When the convergence application is used this will effectively end Domain of the Emperor and require the user use this technique again in order to lace chakra into the earth. Domain of the Emperor can be used twice per battle and lasts four turns per application or until it is sacrificed to produce an explosion. While active the user is unable to use techniques other than Explosion Release, the elements which compose it, their primary elemental affinity, and non-elemental techniques.

(Bakuton: Chikyūmei) – Explosion Release: Mandate of Earth
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: N/A
Chakra: N/A (+20 chakra cost to applied techniques)
Damage: N/A
Description: This technique can only be used while Domain of the Emperor is active allowing the user to passively activate this innate ability. Mandate of Earth essentially allows solid-based matter and techniques (Earth/Earth CE, not including other shinobi, etc) to become infused with Explosive chakra. However, unlike its sibling techniques Hell and Heaven the Mandate of Earth, through the Domain of the Emperor, infuses these solid-based techniques beyond short-range of the user by utilizing the diffused Explosive chakra latent in the surface it was infused to. This essentially allows the user to convert any physical object he pleases into a latent bomb. Should the user apply this technique to ninja tools or objects void of chakra the explosion produced would be equivalent to an average explosive tag. Should the user infuse their Explosive chakra into a supplementary technique then the damage inflicted will be equivalent to the rank of the technique For example, should the user infuse their Explosive chakra into Earth Shelter Technique then the shelter will explode dealing damage equivalent to B-Rank. The Mandate of Earth can only be applied to techniques and matter within the Domain of the Emperor. Like the Domain this technique comes with an audible tell – the earth will rumble dramatically moments prior to detonation. Mandate of Earth cannot be used upon anything on the opponent’s person. When the object in question either strikes an opposing object or force it will explode at the initial point of contact. Alternatively, the user can void the need for contact by causing a premature explosion in the object in question. This can also allow the user to keep the object inert until a time of their choosing but requires the user be aware of any interaction. Explosions produced by the Mandate of Earth can have their directionality manipulated allowing for the negation of recoil and damage. Mandate of Earth can be used twice and will remain active for the duration of the Domain of the Emperor.
