Element Explanation

Lightning Release is the style of ninjutsu that utilizes lightning and electricity. This nature is perhaps the most unstable and hardest element to control due to its fast and high energy molecular structure. Lightning Releases' most prominent quality is its ability to stun, paralyze, and short circuit opponents with its volatile electrical charges. Most techniques possess this quality even if it is not its primary function. The other properties lightning techniques possess are bladed augmentation which comes from the use of incredible vibrations and electrical burns from the high plasma energy. Lightning is comparable in speed to wind release, which can be argued to be equally as fast or faster than lightning itself. Regardless, lightning is best used with fire and water techniques. With regard to fire release, both are very high energy plasma like natures that can augment the properties of one another. Fire is naturally strong against wind, which is strong against lightning. Using the two in conjunction allows for that weakness to be counteracted. As for water, it is a natural conductor of electricity. While water is not weak to lightning like earth is, the conductivity of water allows for deadly combinations in order to increase lightning's electrocution properties.

The four methods in this element are Projectiles, Streams, Melee, and Specifics. The former two are similar in nature to fire release.

Method System
Method 1: Projectiles
Method 2: Streams
Method 3: Melee
Method 4: Specifics


Method 1: Projectiles

See Explanation for Fire Release Method 1

The process for constructing lightning projectiles is as follows.
  • Gather a fixed amount of your raiton chakra into the point of release (hands, feet, etc, etc)
  • Condense it using shape manipulation to give it shape and focus all the chakra you gathered into the single manifestation.
  • Release it in the desired direction towards your target.
Now in the case where you produce multiple lightning projectiles you would follow these steps:
  • Gather a fixed amount of your raiton chakra into the point of release.
  • Condense it using shape manipulation to give it shape.
  • Divide the chakra equally among the projectiles you are releasing.
  • Then release.
    The reason for this is, in the RP, when you release multiple projectiles using one jutsu, the equivalent of those individual techniques is the rank of the jutsu you release.
This is the same process described in the projectile method for Katon.

(Raiton no Jutsu) - Lightning Release Technique
Type: Offensive
Rank: D
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 10
Damage: 20
Description: The user will manipulate their chakra to create small bolts of lightning to attack their target.

Simple but versatile technique, focus your chakra through your hands to create several small lightning bolts which travel as projectiles to hurt the opponent.

(Ration: Ikazuchi Kashou) - Lightning Release: Thunder Burn
Type: Offensive
Rank: D
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 10
Damage: 20
Description: The user moves his palm unleashing a wave of lightning bolts at the opponent.

Simply move either palm while focusing raiton chakra to release a large scale 'wave' of lightning bolts. Considering the wording, a wave can be interpreted as a fairly large scale technique, making it harder to avoid than other D ranks, especially in short range.

(Raiton: Raikou Oonami) - Lightning Release: Lightning Surge
Type: Offensive
Rank: D
Range: Short
Chakra: 10
Damage: 20
Description: The user will concentrate their chakra and slam their hand on the ground to release a surge of lightning across the ground to the opponents feet to shock them.

Concentrate lightning chakra into a hand before slamming it hard onto the ground and releasing the stored surge of lightning across the ground towards your opponent's feet. This technique is non lethal, it's meant to burn the feet, making it difficult for the opponent to use foot based tai or move at high speeds with the use of his feet.

(Raiton: Shuurai Rappa no Jutsu) - Lightning Release: Lightning Strike Horn Technique
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Description: The user will raise their hand infront of them like a sword. It will begin glowing in a pale yellow before releasing bolts of lightning in the shape of a horn that spread outwards, allowing it to attack multiple targets.

Raise your dominant hand, making it appear like a sword and surrounding it with pale yellow lightning chakra. The yellow glow is a good indicator for the opponent about what's about to happen, making it this a poor choice for stealth attacks. After accumulating the necessary chakra in your hand, you release several bolts of lightning that take the shape of a horn in a widespread attack meant to hit multiple people.

(Raiton: Reijingu Sandā) - Lightning Style: Raging Thunder
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user creates a half shaped dome of lightning that can be pushed forward in a similar way to a "wave of lightning" attack. It has both paralyzing and shocking properties as well as physical momentum.

Simply a half dome of lightning created by focusing lighting chakra and being pushed forwards as a wide-scale wave. The range is limited, but it's difficult to avoid in short range. It hits and shocks/paralyzes anyone it comes into contact with and is a good jutsu for capturing targets alive, as it will most likely fade anyone it comes into contact with into unconsciousness.

(Raiton: Ikazuchi no Kiba) - Lightning Release: Fangs of Lightning
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user will raise his hand or a weapon and send an electrical discharge into the clouds, allowing them to create lightning strikes in the desired location. The discharges are triggered right after the technique and cannot be delayed or prepared before hand but are quite fast.

Focus lightning chakra into a hand, before sending lightning chakra into the clouds above. This causes several lightning strikes to descend on a desired area, and move quite fast. The number of lightning techniques, their speed, and the fact that they come from above makes the jutsu difficult to avoid.

(Raiton: Hiraishin) - Lightning Release: Lightning Rod
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user raises their hands to the air, charging lightning. He will then unleash the lightning energy at the enemy target in the form of a lightning bolt.

Charge lightning chakra into your hand, before simply releasing the stored chakra as a bolt of lightning. Lightning bolts are thin projectiles, making them easy to dodge with tai.

(Raiton: Gian Yari) - Lightning Style: False Darkness Spear
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user emits a spear of lightning from their mouth. The spear can then split apart to strike multiple enemies.

Simply focus lightning chakra in your mouth before emitting it as a thin bolt/spear of concentrated lightning energy. It has high piercing potential, and can target multiple people at once. Keep in mind the power of the jutsu is dependent on how many people it targets. For example, with two targets, each split bolt would be C rank.

(Raiton: Dai Denki hōden no Jutsu) - Lightning Release: Large Electrical Discharge Technique
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: By performing the Ram handseal the user will manipulate their chakra and they then raise their hand to the sky and an electrical discharge is triggered shocking the target.

Make a handseal, focus chakra into sky above, and cause electrical energy to come down on the desired location shocking the target. Nice jutsu, but easy to avoid, even though it's very precise.

(Raiton: Rakurai Senkou) - Lightning Release: Thunderbolt Flash
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user releases a current of purplish lightning from their hands forward, damaging and knocking away enemies. The range of this technique is, however, limited.

(Raiton: Kaminari no Shōgeki Ame) - Lightning Release: Lightning Shock Rain
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user manipulates their lightning chakra condensing into a orb of chakra and then releasing it into the air. The lightning orb will then remain in the air for several seconds releasing a continous rain of lightning bolts shocking any enemy within the radius of the attack.
Note: Lasts only the turn in which it is used.

Manipulate lightning chakra which is then condensed into an orb and released into the sky. When the lightning orb is in the sky it explodes into hundreds of miniature lighting bolts that continually shock the opponent, making them need a continuous defense. The jutsu is also nice to use at the beginning of a turn, but you should be wary of hitting yourself with your own jutsu, or moving into your own area of attack.

(Raiton: Denkō Noroshi) - Lightning Style: Lightning Signal
Type: Supplementary
Rank: B
Range: Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: N/A
Description: After forming the necessary hand seals, the user points their hands towards a certain direction and triggers an electrical discharge, which then explodes in a specific form. When the hands are raised to the sky, this technique can be use as a signal flare.

Trash. You form handseals, point your hand up, and cause electricity to explode into the form of a beacon, alerting allies to your location. Might be useful in NW, but the allies would need to be in the same landmark, or land.

(Raiton: Raisogekishin) - Lightning Release: Lightning Rat Violent Quake
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: After performing the required hand seals Monkey → Ox → Boar → Tiger the user releases a discharge of electricity that shapes itself into several destructive disks of lightning. These are shot at the targets with great speed.

Make the four handseals, and then focus your chakra into several discs of lightning, which you then shoot at the opponent. The discs move fairly fast, and can be used to slice through the opponent.

(Raiton: Ikazuchi Hakai) - Lightning Release: Lightning Destruction
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: After performing a small sequence of 3 hand seals the user will place their hand on the ground converting their chakra in to lightning. The user then sends an enormous bolt of electricity that cuts through the ground in the direction of the enemy. The shape of the bolt is a triangular with the base in the direction of the user and the tip headed towards the target. It causes devastating destruction on its way and generates enough heat and power to destroy whatever it comes into contact with.

(Raiton: Chidori Senbon) - Lightning Release: One Thousand Birds Needle
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user reshapes the Chidori in their hand into the form of countless senbon which are shot with a simple hand movement towards the target. The senbons are extremely precise and have the same numbing and paralyzing effects as Chidori, carrying enormous speed. Because the technique requires no handseals and is done with simple hand movements, its extremely hard to avoid while in short range and quite dangerous to counter due to the precision attacks it can be used to perform.

Form a chidori in your hand and then aim it at your opponent, but instead of using it in a melee way, use shape manipulation to launch hundreds of needles at your opponent at a fast speed. Due to the nature of the needles, their speed, and their number, this jutsu is difficult to avoid in short range. If you're hit by a needle, the area hit will become numbed/paralyzed. It's a nice jutsu to use against approaching opponents when they enter short range.

(Raiton: Sandāboruto) - Lightning Style: Thunderbolt
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user extends both arms, releasing a high discharge through both palms, targeting multiple opponents simultaneously. It is possible to increase the power using this technique in combination with a water source. Working similarly to False Darkness, the held orbs split into several tendrils of lightning. If used against a target submerged in water, the strength increases +20.

Using both arms, release immense amount of lightning through both that arcs around hitting multiple people. If used in a water source, the power of the technique effectively doubles since the damage is increased by +20. If used in water, it's also much harder for the opponent to avoid.

(Raiton: Gian) - Lightning Style: False Darkness
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Descripton: The user, after performing the Snake handseal, emits lightning in the shape of a spear from their hands or mouth which then pierces the enemy. Kakuzu, the original user, shoots the technique from his Lightning mask's mouth. Its destructive power is great enough to even pierce through rock; meaning it has a high killing potential. The user can increase the number of spears to attack multiple enemies by branching the main spear. This, coupled with the sheer speed of the lightning, makes it a difficult technique to evade. This strong attack can be defended against by an equally strong attack of the same element such as Raikiri.

Similar to the B ranked version, the user will simply focus chakra into his mouth before releasing it outwards as a powerful shaped spear of electrical energy. It has high piercing potential and, like the original, can branch off into multiple spears to hit multiple people. Obviously, this jutsu is hard to evade at shorter ranges due to its speed.

(Raiton: Chidori Jinrai) – Lightning Release: 1000 birds ThunderClap.
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Mid-Long
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description: The user will cover his hands in with lightning, essentially performing a (Raiton: Chidori) Lightning Release: One Thousand Birds in each hand. Clapping his hands together, the user can unleash that massive amount of lightning chakra into the form of a powerful Thunderbolt directed at the target. The technique is best used if the user has a height advantage in relation to the target. The thunderbolt is strong enough to leave a giant crater and cannot be used while being in Short-range of the target, at the risk of being hit also.

Focus lightning chakra into each hand, and form a chidori in each. Clap the hands together, and then blast the stored energy downwards at the opponent in the form of a large, powerful lightning bolt. If you use it in short range, you'll hurt yourself from the sheer scale of the technique, so it's best to use it from mid or long range distance above the opponent.



Method 2: Currents/Wide Spread

The techniques in this next method all adhere to constant waves or currents of lightning, meaning you're constantly placing chakra into the technique as opposed to projectiles where you gather all your chakra and then release it all in one/several condensed shots. This is where the element gets into the real conductive nature of Lightning. In constructing these techniques, the user would start by gathering a fixed amount of lightning chakra. Rather than release all the chakra at once like in projectiles, the user will release the chakra gradually in a generally unfocused stream along a conductive surface (ground, weapon, etc). These techniques are usually sporadic and uncontrolled which tends to let the lightning spread more. However, speed and power are generally sacrificed as a result.

Advantages of Method

Unlike projectiles, currents remain within the control of the user rather then all control of it being lost on release. Due to them being a continuous expulsion of chakra, the user maintains control of the technique throughout its entire use. Since the user maintains this control, it enables Raiton to be used much more for defensive and supplementary applications, rather than offense alone which is usually the initial use. The user flowing their chakra allows for the construction of armors, enhanced weapons and use raiton directly from their body to electrocute anyone in the immediate vicinity of the user. Furthermore, these types of techniques have a greater range width wise. Unlike other types of elements, raiton has the added bonus of branching off of its own will. As the element itself is difficult to control, static is likely to result from any type of technique, with general waves like these it's much more common.

Continuous expulsion of chakra allows for techniques to last far longer than projectiles since the total amount of released Raiton chakra has to equal to that of the technique's rank.

Disadvantages of Method

Whilst using the jutsu, due to it requiring a continuous fuel of chakra, a new technique can't be used until the first is finished. This becomes a problem for weapon enhancing jutsu, which will cease to be useful the moment the chakra flow to the weapon is removed to perform another jutsu. As well should your opponent execute a technique that is equal in strength to your stream technique, yet still has the ability to attack from different angles, you will be at a disadvantage, seemingly being force to maintain that technique else you risk being hit in that front.

The final disadvantage to this method would have to be, that to flow a current, most jutsu require a medium of some sort. Flowing a current would require the user to use the ground or object as a way of conducting it.

(Raiton: Raigeki) - Lightning Release: Electric Attack
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Description: After performing the required hand seals Tiger → Snake → Dog the user creates an electric current from their hand that can hit multiple individuals at the same time. Furthermore, it extends into incredible distances and can avoid obstacles.

Multiple opponents? Protected behind some kind of barrier? No problem. Form three handseals and focus your lightning chakra into your hand before discharging it as an electric current that's able to be aimed at multiple people and avoid obstacles in its path in pursuit of the opponent. It's capable of moving into long range as well.

(Raiton: Jibashi) - Lightning Release: Electromagnetic Murder
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short (Short-Long depending on the water technique)
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30 (+10 to a water technique when used in conjunction)
Description: This jutsu allows the user to create a wave of electricity from the user's hands. This jutsu can vary in power from a small surge to shock an opponent to a powerful stream of lightning capable of ripping through solid rock. It is ideal to use in conjunction with a water jutsu.

You focus chakra into your hands and use it to create a wave of electricity which is then shaped into a stream and fired towards the opponent. It can rip through solid rock, and it is best used in conjunction with a water technique to increase its power by 10 damage (this doesn't sound like a lot, but it increases the rank to B, effectively doubling the technique's power).

(Raiton: Raigeki no Yoroi) - Lightning Release: Lightning Strike Armor
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Rank: C
Range: Short
Chakra: 15
Damages: 30
Description: The user surrounds themselves with electricity. The intense electric field protects them by electrocuting anyone who comes into contact with it, but only works for one attack.

Create another electric field however, this time, use it to surround your body in a field meant to protect your body and electrocute anyone that comes into contact with you. The electric field is almost skin tight, surrounding the body in its entirety without leaving a single open spot for the opponent to exploit. This is a nice quick defense against low ranking emerging earth techniques, or a good defense/offense if you want to stop the opponent from touching you.

(Raiton: Raiton no Heki) - Lightning Release: Lightning Release Wall
Type: Supplementary/Defensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user manipulates their chakra while doing the Ox handseal and then releases it in front of him whilst holding their hands out. By doing this, the user generates a wall of lightning energy that can defend against certain techniques. The user can use this defence to shock enemy targets who attempt close range combat and deliver massive shocks to anything that comes in contact with it.

Make the ox seal, focus your chakra, and use it to generate a wall of electrical energy in front of your body. Keeping in mind the range, the overall size of the shield is about five meters in diameter/height/width. Going by the description, you need to hold your hands out to maintain the shield. Anything that comes into contact with the shield has massive shock delivered into it.

(Raiton: Kangekiha) – Lightning Release: Wave of Inspiration
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40 (+20 to Water Technique)
Description: After doing the Rabbit → Dog → Boar → Ram → Rat hand seals, the user generates a large amount of lightning from their hands, which can then be either released in an unfocused manner or passed through conductive materials to improve the electrical power of the technique, namely in conjunction with Water Techniques. In fact, certain users have showed that its possible to, if the user has the ability to mold both Water and Lightning chakras at the same time (for example, Darui who has Storm Release), unleash this particular technique at the same time as they exhale/spit some water technique (which needs to consist of a stream of water), combining both in a seemingly consecutive move. Other ninjas will need to use a clone or an ally for the same effect.

Four hand seals, and then release a normal wave of lightning chakra. There isn't really anything note worthy about this jutsu unless the user can simultaneously mold two elements from a KG, or from Y/Y. If you're able to do so, you can use this jutsu to empower a water technique, and give it +20 damage.

(Raiton: Ikazuchi no Utage) - Lightning Burial: Banquet of Lightning
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user brings their hands together and an electrical energy will begin to crackle around them. They will then slam their hands to the ground to send an electric current racing through the earth. When the current approaches its target, it can split into multiple tendrils to attack separate targets individually.

Bring your hands together, focusing lighting chakra into both before slamming them into the ground and causing electrical currents to attack targets. You can use this jutsu to attack underground opponents, or multiple targets, especially if they're coming from different directions.

(Raiton: Raijū Hashiri no Jutsu) - Lightning Release: Lightning Beast Running Technique
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user channels his lighting chakra to his dominant hand and then radiates it out making it a hound shaped stream of lighting which stays attached to the users hand through a bolt of lighting and rampages towards his target.

Focus lightning chakra into your hand, and then cause it to extend outwards into the shape of a hound formed completely of raiton. This hound should be controllable with your hand. Since its controllable, you can have it avoid obstacles as it pursues the opponent.

(Raiton: Purazuma Bōru) - Lightning Release: Plasma Ball
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20 (+5 per turn active)
Damage: 40
Description: The user manipulating their chakra generates a plasma barrier around them to serve as a defence which protects them from incoming attacks, even from something as wide-ranged as the Quicksand Waterfall Flow. However the user cannot use other techniques besides lightning release or physical based techniques while sustaining the technique. The user can rush at their opponents even if the barrier is active and use it to ram against them. The shield can be used offensively, by discharging the electricity in the direction of their choice in a wave resulting in using the energy of the barrier and ending its effects.
Note: Technique remains active for up to 3 turns.

A quick defense that forms a dome around the user, protecting from even wide scale jutsu like the quicksand water flow technique. Whilst sustaining this jutsu, you can only use lightning and tai, but the barrier moves with your body, so you can use it as a powerful tool in close range battles. You can use it offensively as a mid range technique by unfocusing the lighting that composes the dome and blasting it forwards as a wave.

(Raiton: Amigumo) - Lightning Style: Spider Web
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: After kneading chakra in the body and converting it to lightning, the user places their hand on the ground which creates a surge of electricity which originates from them and spans out around the user creating a web of electricity around them. Anyone caught within this web is electrocuted by the lightning's effect.

Simply focus your lightning chakra into your hand, and place it onto the ground. Spread the lightning into a field of electrical energy in the shape of a web. Anyone who comes into contact with it takes damage. It's a good technique to use against underground opponents, or to discourage taijutsu users in close range.

(Raiton: Chidori Nagashi) - Lightning Release: One Thousand Birds Current
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Rank: A
Range: Short (Mid if channeled through a medium)
Chakra: 30
Damage: N/A (+10 if used to boost weapon damage)
Description: This jutsu allows the user to generate non-focused electricity from their body. It can be used as an omnidirectional attack or be channeled through weapons, the ground or other conductive mediums. Because the electricity isn't focused, it doesn't kill on contact, instead it has great numbing and paralyzing effects. To channel Nagashi through a medium, the user needs to focus the technique into one of his hands which will then be put in contact with the medium and can only choose to either do a widespread attack throughout his whole body or to channel it into something; he cannot achieve both usages at the same time. Despite not having much destructive or damaging properties, Nagashi can be used to destroy low rank earthen and wooden structures and even negate chakra on the ground to stop high ranked earth and wood techniques. It has also been noted that Lightning Specialists that have mastered Lightning to the highest degree can resist total paralyzation, although they still feel the pain and numbing effects.
Note: Paralyzation lasts 1 turn if sucessful but is ineffective against bios who have a primary Lightning Specialty

Nagashi is an electric field meant to surround your body. Do so by focusing your raiton chakra, before suddenly having it expand outwards, surrounding your body in a current of paralyzing lightning. The lighting itself doesn't do damage, but it can be channeled into the ground to destroy/stop low ranking earth/wood, or alternatively negate the chakra in large scale techniques. If the opponent is within short range, they might be paralyzed (though not so if they're a lighting specialist). This is a good deterrent against taijutsu users, and kenjutsu users, because it's omni-directional.

(Raiton: Rairyu no Tatsumaki) - Lightning Release: Thunder Dragon Tornado
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user forms a whirling vortex of electricity around themselves. The vortex will take on the form of a dragon’s head and will grow to then shoot forward and cover the area in front of them. Even if the attack doesn't directly connect with his foe, the lightning can jump from the vortex to hit a nearby target.

Focus lighting chakra, but this time don't focus it in your body, or on a body part, have it concentrate in the area surrounding your body. Swirl the chakra around yourself, until a large vortex and field of electricity is created around your body, discouraging anyone from coming within short range. You can then blast the lightning forwards in the form of a dragon, and attack your opponent. Even if the attack misses, you might be able to hit them with a single bolt to paralyze them and do some very minor damage.

(Raiton: Denpō Sekka) - Lightning Release: Telegram Flash
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: After doing the Rabbit → Rat → Horse → Ram handseals, the user will slam his hand on the ground and release into it a massive amounts of lightning chakra which will then pool beneath his opponent before releasing itself into a gigantic column of lightning which shocks anything caught above it. The technique can affect a bigger or smaller area depending on the users will.

Make the four handseals, and slam your hand onto the ground, forming your lighting chakra beneath the opponent. As it pools, cause it to suddenly erupt upwards as a gigantic column - you can decide how large in scale you want this 'column' to be. The lighting shocks and damages anyone it hits. It requires some set up, but it's nice to use if you want to move your opponent, or prevent him from staying in the same area.

(Raiton: Chidori Raimei) - Lightning Style: 1000 Birds Thunderstorm
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Descripton: The user will channel lightning chakra into his hand, covering it with a massive chidori. The user will then point his palm forwards, unleashing that chakra, creating a massive 120º blast of lightning that spreads from his hand, outwards and forward towards the enemy.

This is a larger variation of the chidori, a large scale, hard to avoid blast of chakra and lightning that makes dodging it very difficult, especially at short range. To perform it, simply cover your palms with lighting chakra, forming a chidori, then blast it outwards in the form of a massive wide-scale stream of lighting waves that tear into the opponent and do massive damage on contact.



Method 3: Melee

Chidori and its variants like spear, etc. Explaining Chidori will basically outline the rest. Chidori was the failed attempt to combine Rasengan with nature release by Kakashi. The result was a technique that had a less focused shape manipulation but till was considerably potent and effective. The user channels lightning chakra into their hand and condenses the wild lightning as much as they can, from there the initial chidori is a technique with incredible penetration power and a rather substantial paralyzing quality as well. The variations add more add or subtract from these initial qualities but all still begin with the initial chidori (note: variations do not require initial chidori to be used, with the exception of Kirin).

Advantages of Method

These techniques are great techniques to use in a fairly close combat setting. Though they’re ninjutsu techniques, they’re heavy taijutsu complimenting techniques. The basic chidori or Raikiri engulfs the entire hand and possess some degree of discharge. As well, the variants like current, spear, and senbon adds versatility to the element and allows for techniques to expand in range.

Disadvantages of Method

Though the variant techniques allow for the techniques in this method to extend in range, these ranged techniques generally lack in power. Chidori and Raikiri are powerful techniques as they are the base for the rest of the techniques in this method and they are short ranged. They are taijutsu compliments which means in order to avoid/get around these techniques all one has to do is effectively get out of range. For the variants, there is not a large range for width wise with these attacks. They are mainly for the sake of reaching what they couldn’t reach before and there may not be a lot of general power behind them.

(Raiton: Denki Railanshō) - Lightning Release: Electric Discharge Palm
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short
Chakra: 15
Damage points: 30
Description: The user will manipulate their lightning chakra in their dominant hand generating electrical bolts of lightning around their forearm. The user will then slam their palm onto the ground causing the electrical energy to become discharged sending out bolts of lightning into the ground and around them up to 5 meters.

Manipulate lightning into your dominant hand before causing electrical bolts of lightning to flow around your arm. Obviously, this is a bad jutsu to use if you're trying to be stealthy. The sound and appearance of the lightning will likely cause your opponent to anticipate the attack. The palm is then slammed into the ground, resulting in electrical energy discharging in an omni-directional area (up to five meters). This is also a good technique to use to attack people who are travelling through the ground.

(Raiton: Sandā Sāburu) - Lightning Style: Thunder Saber
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user gathers lightning chakra around his fist, generating a sphere of pure lightning around it. The user can then punch a target, unleashing the lightning in the form of a localized electrical explosion.

Simple, but effective. Focus lightning chakra into either fist, cuasing a sphere of pure lightning to focus and condense around the fist before then striking your opponent with a punch. Upon punching him, you release the lightning as an explosive burst, dealing electrical damage, and probably sending your opponent moving back a few meters.

(Raiton: Torunedo Raitoningu) - Lightning Release: Tornado Lightning
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user generates lightning-based chakra between his/her palms forming what appears to be a lightning "rope". The user can then whip that lightning around as if its a true whip, hitting his target.

Focus lightning chakra into both palms, forming it into a 'whip' of raiton energy. Whip the lightning around while you spin, forming it into a tornado of lightning energy that can reach up to mid range. Alternatively, use it as a whip to attack/bind the opponent using lightning.

(Raiton: Chidori) - Lightning Release: One Thousand Birds
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user must first perform the following sequence of hand seals Ox → Rabbit → Monkey → Dragon → Rat → Bird → Ox → Snake → Dog → Tiger → Monkey and they will then focus lightning chakra into their hand to create a lightning jutsu that is concentrated in the user's palm and thrusted toward the opponent at high speed. The lightning in the user's palm sounds like birds chirping, hence the name, and allows the user to perform high grade cutting damage or high penetration piercing thrusts.
Note: Someone who mastered lightning release can perform chidori with just the Ox hand seal.
Note: Uchiha Sasuke and Kakashi Hatake bios can use the technique without handseals

After you've mastered the element, focus lightning into your dominant hand after making the Ox seal. Condense the lightning, with a light focus on shape transformation, creating an aura of lightning around your hand, making it much easier to pierce and stab targets using your hand. Of course, the technique makes a fairly loud sound, making it ineffective as a stealth based technique.

(Raiton: Sanda Appu) – Lightning Release: Thunder Up
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user concentrates a lot of lightning chakra into their hand, compressing it into a ball of lightning energy. The user can then hurl it at the enemy or trust it forward in a melee attack. Once the ball hits the target, it expands into a massive lightning explosion.

Focus lightning chakra into your hand, focusing it into a sphere of condensed and focused lightning energy. You can then toss it or thrust it forward in a melee attack. If it's thrown, it'll reach up to mid range. If you thrust it, it's dependent on your bio's arm length. The technique is rather easy to avoid, however the explosion itself is fairly massive, making it harder to avoid.

(Raiton: Chidori Eiso) - Lightning Release Chidori Sharp Spear
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user increases the range of their Chidori by using form manipulation to extend it into a blade up to 10 meters in length. This blade is capable of splitting into multiple additional blades upon contact with an enemy, drastically increasing the number of wounds it can inflict. Like other Chidori-related techniques, this jutsu will numb its target upon contact but unlike others, seems to focus more on having a cutting power, like a katana, than a piercing one. Because of its cutting abilities, it often seems to manifest a certain "solidity"; a tangible aspect.

Make a chidori, however, unlike other variations, you then condense the chakra, using shape manipulation to form it into a spear to extend its range. The cutting power of the jutsu is increased tremendously, as is its range. It'll function as a larger katana, essentially. If you hit your opponent, the spear can branch off into other blades, increasing the damage. That makes blocking it with a limb ineffective.

(Raiton: Raikiri) - Lightning Release: Lightning Blade
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short (Long if applied to a projectile weapon)
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description: The Lightning Cutter is an enhanced and concentrated form of the Chidori with the same effects and drawbacks that is done performing the Ox → Rabbit → Monkey hand seals. According to Might Guy, it gained its name after Kakashi split a bolt of lightning with it. Because the Chidori is already powerful on its own, the Lightning Cutter requires better chakra control, which is exemplified in its appearance. The Chidori appears as simply a mass of white electrical chakra in the user's hand, while the Lightning Cutter is much more focused. Kakashi has shown different ways of forming and using the Lightning Cutter, unique to him. For example, he demonstrated the ability to imbue a projectile weapon, such as a kunai, with his Lightning Cutter, granting the technique long-range capabilities by throwing the kunai towards his target. In this instance, the kunai was capable of piercing through multiple large rocks with ease, without any loss of momentum or change in trajectory.
Note: Kakashi biographies can use the technique without hand seals.
Note: Only Kakashi biographies can apply the technique to a kunai and use it as a projectile attack.

Chidori, but stronger. If you're Kakashi, you can focus it into a kunai and increase its range.

(Raiton: Raikiri Nibai Raikou Jishin) – Lightning Release: Lightning Blade Double Lightning Quake
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description: The user performs (Raiton: Raikiri) - Lightning Release: Lightning Blade and splits it in two, covering both hands in Lightning. He will then perform a melee attack at the enemy, unleashing the powerful lightning into him.

Form a Raikiri but spread the energy to both hands, before running at the opponent and hitting them with a melee attack. Nice if you want to capture your target alive, as this will likely paralyze them and render them unconscious, but if you're aiming to kill, it'd be best to use the Raikiri itself or another technique.

(Raiton: Bai Raikiri) - Lightning Release: Double Lightning Blade
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80 per Lightning Blade
Description: The Lightning Cutter is an enhanced and concentrated form of the Chidori with the same effects and drawbacks. Because the Chidori is already powerful on its own, the Lightning Cutter requires better chakra control, which is exemplified in its appearance. The Chidori appears as simply a mass of white electrical chakra in the user's hand, while the Lightning Cutter is much more focused. Kakashi has shown different ways of forming and using the Lightning Cutter, unique to him. For example, he has shown the ability to, without hand seals, perform 2 simultaneous Lightning Blades, one in each hand, which he can use to defend from Lightning techniques or to simply attack the enemy in a strong and dangerous melee attacks.
Note: Can only be used by Kakashi bios

Kakashi exclusive. [2 x (Raikiri)] = One Raikiri in each hand.

( Raiton: Chidori Shinsō ) - One Thousand Birds True Spear
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description:The user starts off by dashing at his opponent with a Chidori in his hand. As they strikes his opponent, they uses shape manipulation to extend the Chidori into a lightning spear that impales and hurtles the opponent into the air. The user then increases the potency of the lightning, generating a powerful electric explosion at the end of the spear and sending the enemy back to the ground.
Note: Only the spear extention can reach up to mid range.

Run at your opponent, holding a chidori (this counts as using chidori). After you hit your opponent with the chidori, use shape manipulation to extend the chidori, propelling the opponent into the air while it impales him. You then increase the lightning energy in the spear while he's in the air, causing an electrical blast and explosion and damaging/killing the opponent before he lands back on the ground. Looks cool and flashy, but there are better alternatives to killing the opponent, especially after you hit him already.



Method 4: Specifics

This method, like the rest of the final methods in all the five basic elements, is composed of techniques that have no real direct relationship with one another nor can fit into any of the above categories. They are all unique beyond categorization within this system of training but they possess the basic properties of lightning which would be electrical force/energy and possibly high vibrations for cutting, etc.

Advantages of Method

Advantages are dependent on the individual techniques.

Disadvantages of Method

Disadvantages are dependent on the individual techniques.

(Raiton: Iwa Nadare) - Lightning Style: Stone Avalanche
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Descripton: By forming hand seals Snake → Upside down Tiger → Hands clapped together when near a cliff , the user causes stone and rock to become dislodged and rain down on anyone below it by releasing a wave of electrical energy which weakens the rock and makes it fall as it crumbles. However, this is extremely location-based and needs to be done uphill of a mountain for it to work.

This is a really environmentally specific/location based jutsu to use. While being upwards towards the top of a cliff, you focus your lightning chakra into the rock and stone below you, weakening its structural integrity and causing it to rain down on opponents below your location.

(Raiton: Inazuma ken Fudou) - Lightning Release: Lightning Blades Levitation
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 15 (+5 per turn)
Damage: 30
Description: The user will channel their lightning chakra into their sword to increase its cutting capabilities, and then levitate it in front of them. They will then multiply the sword creating two extra physical copies which are then all manipulated to spin rapidly and are controlled to fly towards and cut through the opponent/s through hand gestures. While controlling the weapons, the user cannot mold chakra for other techniques and needs to keep focus.

Focus lightning chakra into a sword, in a similar way to the vibrating lightning blade, using the applications of chakra flow to increase its cutting potential. Using precise chakra control, levitate the sword in front of you before causing two copies of the sword composed of lightning to also form. You then cause them all to begin spinning rapidly, like three buzz saws of lightning which you can control through hand gestures. Of course, this requires precise chakra control, meaning you can't use other techniques at the same time. Since the blades are being controlled, it makes it almost impossible for the opponent to hide behind barricades and such since the blades can simply fly around/over them.

(Raiton: Shichu Shibari) - Lightning Release: Four-Pillar Bind
Type: Supplementary/Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: After the user performs the Ram → Boar → Dog → Bird → Hare hand seals, he releases his lightning chakra into the ground, using it to forcefully shape the earth into 4 big pillars (proportionate to the target area) around the target. Once they rise, they unleash a barrage of lightning bolts, currents and shocks to whatever is inside, paralyzing, shocking and damaging the target from all around.

Make the five handseals, and focus your lightning chakra into the ground. Use your lightning chakra to carve the earth, forming it into four separate pillars which you then form around your opponent. After they rise, they cause lightning to swirl around, shocking, damaging, and paralyzing anyone inside. Pretty good technique if you're trying to catch your opponent alive.

(Raiton: Raiton Kage Bunshin) - Lightning Release: Lightning Shadow Clone
Type: Supplementary
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: N/A
Description: User creates a Shadow Clone of himself but made from lighting chakra. When the clone gets hit he will return to its previous state of pure lighting chakra. The clone has a physical substance and therefor is able to use ninjutsu and taijutsu techniques as well as he has all the normal moves the user has.
Note: Can only use lightning based techniques up to B-rank.

Shadow clone using lightning. If the clone is hit, it'll turn into pure lightning, shocking and damaging the opponent if he's in contact with it. Keep in mind this splits your chakra in half, making this jutsu big trash overall.

(Chō Biburāto Raitontō) - Super Vibrating Lightning Release Sword
Type: Supplementary
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: N/A (+40 to Kenjutsu/sword-related attacks)
Description: The user channels their lightning chakra into a blade, increasing its vibrating frequency and giving it more cutting power than standard wind techniques.

Stream lightning chakra into your weapon (kunai, shuriken, sword, etc). This increases an object's cutting/piercing potential immensely. You can also stream this technique into seemingly mundane objects like pencils to try and surprise your opponent. Good technique to use against Hozuki users, or people who transform into objects weak to water. ALSO, THAT DAMAGE BOOST.

(Raiton: Shuriken Seigyo no Jutsu) - Lightning Release: Shuriken Control Technique
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage : 40
Description: The user will take out two large shuriken or Windmill Shuriken and channel their raiton chakra into them. They will then throw them at their target to pin them down and maintain a connection with the shuriken through a electrical cable that delivers a numbing shock to paralyse the target and restrict their movements.
Note: Numbing effect lasts for one turn.

Take out two Fuma or Windmill shuriken (keep in mind these are too large for the conventional ninja pouch, so unless you're unsealing them, or specifically mention that you're carrying them, you likely won't have one on you). Throw the shuriken and control their motion with lightning release-created cables, making it more difficult to dodge them. The shuriken paralyze the target if they hit, making this a nice restraining technique.

(Raiton: Fusei Shuriken Chidori Jutsu) - Lightning Release: Rigged Shuriken One Thousand Birds Style
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra: 20
Damage 40
Description: The user will utilize a large shuriken and channel a chidori into it. The user will then throw the shuriken charged with chidori towards the opponent resulting in paralysing them on impact. (paralysis lasts for 1 turn)
Note: Must know Chidori.

Not nearly as useful as the former techique, but it's decent because the paralysis occurs on contact. Focus your lightning chakra into the shuriken, imbuing it with the properties of Chidori, before throwing it at the opponent. If it hits, you can paralyze the target, and deal some damage. However, it's much better to use the former technique, since it can be manipulated, and the paralysis can last for longer than a turn.

(Raiton: Raisen) Lightning Release: Lightning Flash
Type: Offensive
Rank: A
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: The user launches a lightning-infused fūma shuriken at their opponent, knocking them back. The lightning trail it leaves behind is also capable of temporarily stunning opponents. This attack is capable of traveling very long distances and can also be used in mid-air.

Focus lightning chakra into another Fuma Shuriken before throwing it at full force towards your opponent. The chakra is then shaped, causing the shuriken to have lightning trails as it flies, and anything that comes into contact with them is then paralyzed. This makes the jutsu harder to avoid for the opponent.

(Raiton: Jūrokuchū Shibari) – Lightning Release: Sixteen-Pillar Bind
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 30
Damage: 60
Description: After performing the needed hand seals Rat → Monkey → Horse → Tiger the user will create a even more powerful version of Lightning Release: Four Pillar Bind. Using this technique, the user creates sixteen giant pillars by using his lightning chakra to shape the ground into a multitude of pillars, which then form a giant cubic oven to trap the enemy. It is often used after Earth Release: Mud Fall to cover the enemy target in mud and then follow up with using Fire release: Firing Biscuit, creating flames in the oven to roast and harden the mud, immobilizing the enemy.

Using lighting release, use it to shape the ground into the shapes of pillars, and form sixteen gigantic ones (able to restrain boss summons), and shape the pillars into a cubic oven shaped creation to restrain the opponent. Keep in mind that, unlike the B-ranked version, this variation does not shock the opponent.

(Raigen Raikochu) – Lightning Illusion Flash of Lightning Pillar
Rank: S
Type: Supplementaty
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 40
Damage: N/A
Description: After performing the following handseals Ram → Horse → Snake → Tiger the user will release a massive amount of lighting chakra which he uses to create a blinding light that appears to emanate from all over the users body. The light can blind any enemy that sees it but its main ability is that, through skill and precise chakra control and timing, the user can use it as a cover to put the enemy into a genjutsu by using the light as a decoy, preventing the enemy from noticing the genjutsu was placed.
Note: Can follow with any Genjutsu the user knows up to A-Rank but needs to have mastered Genjutsu. The user will need to effectively spend two moves, performing both the Lightning Illusion and the Genjutsu; the first only serves as a cover to place the second unnoticed
Note: Can only be used once every three turns

Focus lightning chakra behind you, and focus on its flashy nature. By far, lightning is the 'brightest' element. Focus enough lightning chakra to create a sudden surge of lightning in order to blind your opponent, making it difficult to see. If you know genjutsu up to A rank, you can chain them along the end of the jutsu to use both in the same time frame and cover up your genjutsu's initiation. Obviously, this wouldn't work as well for something like sound gen, so be mindful of the types of illusions that you use.

(Raiton: Raiden) - Lightning Release: Lightning Chain
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short (Mid range connection)
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80
Description: This technique requires the user to firstly create a shadow clone. Then, each of them will activate the Lightning Cutter on opposite hands to one another. Connecting the two techniques together, forming a chain of sorts, they are then able to use the resulting beam to slice through objects with great ease.
Note: Must first have a shadow clone in the field.

Create a shadow clone, then each activate a Raikiri, and cause the techniques to connect with a line of lightning energy, cutting anything it comes into contact with. Keep in mind that moving out of mid range of your clone will halt the jutsu. Also, this jutsu leaves you vulnerable to techniques that attack you from below.

(Raiton: Kirin) - Lightning Release: Kirin
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Mid-Long
Chakra: 70
Damage: 100
Description: After using a fire jutsu to heat the atmosphere and create thunderclouds in the sky, the user will use Chidori to take control of the lightning above. They can then make the lightning strike an opponent in the blink of an eye.
Note: Can only be used by Lightning Specialists.
Note: Can only be avoided with time/space techniques or otherwise absolute defenses.
Note: Can only be used twice per battle.
Note: In the turn before the use of Kirin, the user must have used at least a B-Rank, Long Range Fire (Katon) technique directed at the sky.
Note: User needs to post Chidori, meaning that in the turn Kirin is used, the user spends 2 moves.

A move in the specialist list, the user will need to use three moves to finally complete the jutsu. One to use a long range fire tech of B rank or above, *wait a turn*, use Chidori, and finally post the Kirin itself. Once Kirin is initiated, it's pretty much impossible to dodge unless the opponent has a S/T of some sort similar in nature to Kamui or FTG. It's hard to set up, but a viable strategy is to have a clone set up the jutsu while protecting the clone with your main body (or vice-versa). The technique can only be used by lighting specialists, so the damage is higher than normal S ranks. Make sure to be out of range of the technique so you don't hit yourself with your own Kirin.
