Tell me about Shikotsumyaku and the associated bloodline traits that come with it.

We'll cover that quick then move onto the annoyingly repetitive canon list of techniques, grouped by type and rank.

Shikotsumyaku is a Kekkei Genkai used primarily within the Kaguya Clan. Giving users a great degree of physiological control of their skeletons and bodies at large, Shikotsumyaku users are able to manipulate their bodies to perform superhuman feats. By taking control of their body's osteoclasts and osteoblasts through chakra, the users of this bloodline trait are able to manipulate the growth and formation of their bone matrix and skeletal system as a whole. For instance, Kimmimaro was able to manipulate calcium deposits in his skeleton in order to grow weapons and tools from his body and skeleton at will. Moreover, by manipulating their skeletons and imbuing them with chakra, users of this KG are able to harden them and increase their density. By doing so, the offensive and defensive potential of the user's attacks increase greatly. This is one of the reasons that users of this ability gain certain passives, and are generally harder to hurt, while also having somewhat of an increased 'healing' rate. Since most of the bones protrude from the skeleton, and body as a whole, the user's skin/tissue/etc tends to heal as the techniques are used. As a byproduct, since users of this Kekkei Genkai become so used to pain, using it as a way to break genjutsu becomes impossible. Primarily, this KG is used in close quarters, to supplement the user's taijutsu movements, attacks, and defenses. Since taijutsu techniques are *literally* 'body techniques', the Shikotsumyaku is considered one of the highest forms of taijutsu. In regards to the associated bloodline traits that come with it, perhaps you're referring to the more powerful 'ash-killing bone technique' that Kaguya uses? Honestly, I'm not sure on exactly how this works, but I believe it's quite similar to the Shikotsumyaku. By manipulating her skeletal structure, Kaguya Otsutsuki was able to utilize bones in the same way that users of the Shikotsumyaku are. The only difference being in that Kaguya's attacks would cause you to turn into crushed dorito dust for some reason if they landed. I'm not sure why exactly, I don't remember it being explained in the series, though I could be wrong. I believe Kaguya is the only character able to use this ability anyways though so lmao. Overall though, the Shikotsumyaku is a versatile and powerful ability that I'm excited to learn more about! :D

( Yanagi no Mai ) - Dance of the Willow
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Description: Dance of the Willow is the first of five Kaguya dance forms. Using the ability to manipulate bone structure, the user quickly grows a forearm bone through the palm of each hand to form stabbing instruments and impale their opponents. After stabbing them, they can leave the bones in as spikes or they can allow it to retract.

( Tsubaki no Mai ) - Dance of the Camellia
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Description: Dance of the Camellia is the second of the five Kaguya dance forms. Using the ability to manipulate bone structure, the user removes a long bone in the form of a sword from their shoulder. Because of the bloodline, the density of the bone can be increased many times so that it is as hard as steel. The user can pull up to two swords out, both with full strength.

( Teshi Sendan ) - Ten Finger Drilling Bullets
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Description: The user fires their fingertip bones at the opponent with bullet like speed. As the bones fly through the air, they will rotate and drill into their target once they make contact. Because of the Kaguya Clan's fast regenerative abilities, the rate of fire from and supply of bones can become limitless.

( Hone Senbon Rendan ) - Bone Needle Barrage
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 15
Damage: 30
Description: Similar to Ten Finger Drilling Bullets, the user is able to fire several large bone needles from their arms which are harder than steel. Because of the Kaguya Clan's fast regenerative abilities, the rate of fire from and supply of bones can become limitless.

First four of the C-Ranks. Just give me a short analysis and ask any questions you may have. Almost all Kaguya techniques are on this level of complexity (essentially 0).

All of these techniques are, like you said, pretty simple and standard. The first is simply causing the bones in your fore arms to grow out through your palms in order to stab the opponent through their torso, and to then either leave them in, or extract them. The next technique is quite similar, except that the bone that you withdraw is an actual sword. This sword is extremely dense, and is harder than steel. The latter two techniques are similar, projectile techniques that are fired at the opponent from your hands to deal impact damage on your opponent from a range.

First is nice, because it's a "fuck out my face" type jutsu and also has a nice benefit of being a full body surge. Second is literally just a spear you make through your bones lmao. Third is basically the same thing as the second, but in the form of several smaller projectiles instead of just a single larger one.

That's pretty much it. Aight now you on B-ranks

( Karamatsu no Mai ) - Dance of the Larch
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: Karamatsu no Mai is the third of the five Kaguya dance forms. The user creates a mass of razor-sharp bone spikes all over their body. The user can grow these bones at an extremely rapid rate so they can stab an opponent even as the bones are growing. Since the bones are harder than steel, they can be used defensively to block or trap an opponent's strikes.
This technique is a great surprise attack and it makes the user basically untouchable at close range. When an opponent is close to the user, they spin very fast, rapidly slashing the foe in multiple areas of their body.

( Asami no Mai ) – Dance of the Beautiful Linen
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user slices upward with a sword made of bone and then extends his bones from their back high into the sky, piercing the foe with great accuracy and force before quickly retracting.

( Sawara no Mai ) – Dance of the Cypress
Type: Offensive
Rank: B
Range: Short
Chakra: 20
Damage: 40
Description: The user repeatedly attacks the enemy, alternating attacks between their sword and bone grown from their knee.

The first is essentially the same as bone rage, just more powerful. The second is a combo attack, though tbh I can't really imagine myself using something so oddly specific lmao. And the last is another combo attack, this time alternating between knees and swords.

Oh nah, whoever wrote these is highkey sus asf. Imagine hittin other men with ya bones, couldn't be me !
These techniques are basically similar to the others. The first is just another attack using the bone sword, Second is pretty cool since it causes bone spikes to emerge from the ground, third one is nice as well since it comes from two directions
