    A mysterious chakra shining with splendour becomes a shield boasting a strong defence!!

    A chakra shield used in the puppetry art. A mechanism inside the puppet opens its arms into a couple of segments, through which the user radiates their chakra. The chakra spreads out like a thin film and turns into a protective sheet, preventing all physical attacks and keeping the user safeguarded...!!

    ←Chakra threads are still let through, so the user is still able to flow chakra to their puppets

    Spoiler: Databook 3 - Kirin
    Kirin* (麒麟, Kirin)
    Ninjutsu, S-rank, Offensive, Long range (10+m)
    User: Uchiha Sasuke

    The neighing of an angry divine beast goes down in an attack that shakes the Heavens and moves the Earth!!

    The technique Sasuke thought out, said to be the culmination of the Lightning nature. First one uses a technique from the Fire Release line, like the Great Dragon Fire,** to radically heat up the atmosphere, creating a violent updraught. The updraught creates cumulonimbus clouds*** and from the cumulonimbus clouds breaks forth lightning...!! One changes the shape of this lightning, guides it to the target, and uses it to destroy the enemy in a roar that makes even the Heavens tremble. Because this ninjutsu makes good use of a natural phenomenon, one can invoke it using only a small quantity of chakra. Sasuke, aspiring to become the pinnacle of shinobi, finally tamed even "lightning" itself~~.

    The enemy is destroyed by the sound of thunder!

    [picture of the lightning in the shape of the Kirin]
    [picture of the Kirin hitting its target]
    ↑←The lightning is formed into the shape of the legendary divine beast "Kirin" and used to attack the target! This lightspeed attack is impossible to evade. The enemy will be obliterated before they can even blink!!

    *A kirin (Q?l?n in Chinese) is a creature appearing in various East-Asian mythologies and is said to punish the wicked. It is also known as the Chinese unicorn. It is said to be a deer-like, hoofed animal with scales and horns and it ranks third highest in the hierarchy of mythological creatures. Only the dragon and phoenix are ranked higher. All three, together with the lion, another important animal in East-Asian mythology, are used to in the names of Sasuke's techniques.
    Kirin is also the Japanese name for the giraffe. This is because when the famous Chinese explorer Zheng He brought back two giraffes from Africa in 1414, they were thought to be kirin. This is most likely because it vaguely resembles a deer in shape, has horn-like protrusions on its head, and has spots that could be mistaken for scales.
    **Fire Release: Great Dragon Fire Technique (火遁・豪龍火の術, Katon: Gouryuuka no Jutsu)
    ***Cumulonimbus clouds are large, dark-grey rain clouds involved in thunderstorms and other intense weather.

    Like a rising dragon that dances and rises on the wind~~
    An attacking kick that breaks from the Earth and thrusts into the Heavens!!

    This jump uses the entire body as a spring, by amassing power through taking a posture where the back of the body falls down! With this powerful taijutsu, the user kicks just above their head, similar to Guy's speciality, the "Dynamic Entry". Because the power of the kick from the ground is changelessly converted into a blow, the enemy hit with this attack will be launched high into the sky!!

    [picture of Lee kicking the Samehada from Kisame's hand]
    ↑A difficult to see attack from below!! It has to power to easily kick the "Samehada" from Kisame's hand!!

    User: Jiraiya

    The sweet invitation is a toad trap!!
    Helplessly imprisoned inside a stomach!!

    This technique summons a "Store Toad" (見世蝦蟇, Mise Gama), living on Mt. Myouboku, and imprisons the enemy within its stomach. The "Store Toad" is capable of changing into a building and with their chakra, the user gives the building a design they imagined themselves. Lured in with the temptation of "all you can drink for 500 ryou*," the visiting target is instead drunk up themselves...!!

    ↓From the moment the cancellation handseal is performed, it takes only a few seconds for the "Store Toad" to return to its original small shape...!!
    [picture of the Store Toad in it's normal form]

    [picture sequence of "Club Frog" turning back into the Store Toad]
    ↑As soon as the handseal is performed, "Club Frog" retakes the shape of a toad!! Inside, the intruders, caught in the stomach lining let out a shriek of terror.

    ↓When the the "Store Toad" has gulped down the enemy and returned to its original shape, it quietly takes its leave on account of "closing up shop".
    [picture of the Store Toad heading for the water]

    Perfect capture!!

    * The ryou (両) is the currency used in the Naruto world. It's based on an old coin used in Japan before the Meiji Restoration. One ryou is worth ten yen.

    Ninjutsu, B-rank, Supplementary, Short range (0-5m)
    User: Uchiha Sasuke

    A variety of sealed battle tools
    At the request of their master, they make their appearance!!

    This is a kind of "ninja tool summon" that, by sealing ninja tools like swords or kunai into, for instance, a scroll or one's clothes beforehand, allows them to be called upon when needed. The greatest advantage of this technique is that the time between "taking out" a ninja tool, taking the right "stance" and actually "throwing" it is greatly reduced. The ninja tools are thrown with the actual speed of a "flash of lightning," ruining the opponent's outset of the battle, and snatching away the initiative...!! Furthermore, because the summonable ninja tools can remain hidden until right before they are used, if this technique is mastered, there are an exceptional number of possible tactics.

    [picture of Sasuke summoning 2 shuriken from his wrists
    ↑Just by touching the "marks" that can be drawn anywhere, the ninja tools are summoned in an instant!!

    Now is the time to win or lose!
    Returning to my hand is a long-serving warrior's tool!!

    [picture of Sasuke summoning a giant shuriken]
    ↑When a weapon is summoned, the time needed to throw it can be further shortened by having prepared the weapon in fully extended form beforehand.

    *The "blade" is usually translated as "sword". However, this "sword" shouldn't be interpreted as merely meaning "sword". The meaning extends to practically all sharp weapons. Even shuriken fall under this (the last kanji in shuriken is the same as the kanji for "sword" in this name). I chose to translate it as "blade" to capture the broader meaning.

    Also, the exact meaning of this name would be "Lightning sword-ification". With the "lightning" referring to the speed at which it happens. The "lightning" doesn't refer to the electricity of lightning, though. It specifically refers to the flash of lightning.

    Ninjutsu, A-rank, Defensive
    User: Orochimaru

    Receive - reduce - disperse: The three steps of an absolute prison gate defence!!

    A defensive wall that waits with firm pose and open mouth to gulp down every attack~~
    The "Rashoumon" that is supplied in threefold by Orochimaru's physical defensive technique!! The first gate takes the attack head-on, the second gate specialises in decreasing its power, and the third gate disperses the pressure... Because each of the three gates has a different duty, all attacks will have lost their power before reaching the user. Summoning three "Rashoumon" in an instant, while just one consumes a massive amount of chakra... Being able to use this ultimate absolute defence just shows why Orochimaru was once called "Sannin"**. The gates of carnage, arrived from hell easily chase away the opponent's power, seemingly if ridiculing their screaming. After that, nothing remains but for the person bitten back by Orochimaru to embrace great despair...

    [picture of Orochimaru's face]
    ←The unique absolute gates, called out from the depths of the Earth, make Orochimaru swell up with self-confidence, no matter what the circumstances.

    ↓In an instant, the three great gates rise above their surroundings like mountains! While protecting, the bizarre style of the gates and their malicious aura threaten the opponent.
    [picture of the the three Rashoumon appearing]

    The "unopenable demons," invited with a double handseal

    *Rashoumon (meaning "the gate leading to the outer castle precincts") was the name of two, now destroyed, gates. One used to be in Kyoto and the other in Nara. It's possible a third Rashoumon was located in Kashihara. The Rashoumon was one of two main gates leading into the castle precincts.
    The most famous Rashoumon is the one that used to stand in Kyoto. It was the grander of the two city gates built during the Heian period. It was built in 789, but had fallen into disrepair by the twelfth century. It had become an unsavoury place, with a reputation as a hideout for thieves and other disreputable characters. People would abandon corpses and unwanted babies at the gate.
    It became most famous after the ruined gate became the central setting in the eponymous 1950 film, directed by the famous Kurosawa Akira.
    **Sannin (三忍, "Three Ninja"). The title given to Orochimaru, Jiraiya and Tsunade for their amazing feats.

    Kusanagi* Sword: Chidori** Katana*** (草薙の剣・千鳥刀, Kusanagi no Tsurugi: Chidorigatana)
    Ninjutsu, B-rank, Supplementary, Short range (0-5m)
    User: Uchiha Sasuke

    The pallid sharp blade that pierces through everything sings the song of thunder!!

    Among those techniques that use a "chakra flow" to raise cutting ability or make use of the "Chidori," this technique in particular is called "Chidori Katana," because it flows Lightning-natured chakra through a katana. The radiating and chirping blade can easily cut up even steel. Furthermore, the body of the person cut by the sword goes numb, taking away their freedom of movement!!

    [picture of Yamato being stabbed in the shoulder by Sasuke's Kusanagi Sword]
    ←The "Chidori" flows through the blade, into the enemy's body. The muscles hit by the electrical current go stiff, making it impossible to move!!

    *The Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (草薙剣) is sword from real-life mythology. It's as important to Japan's history as Excalibur is to Britain's. After defeating the great snake Yamata-no-Orochi (八岐大蛇) by getting him drunk on sake, the god Susanoo-no-Mikoto (須佐能乎命) discovered the Kusanagi in one of its tails, after breaking his own sword, the Totsuka-no-Tsurugi (十拳剣), on it. He called the sword Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi (天叢雲剣, "Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven") and would later give it to the sun goddess Amaterasu-Oomikami (天照大神) as an apology.
    Amaterasu later gave it to her grandson Ninigi-no-Mikoto (瓊瓊杵尊) when she send him to pacify Japan. Through him, it eventually came into the hands of his great-grandson Jimmu Tennou (神武天皇, Emperor Jimmu), the first emperor of Japan. It is still considered one of the Imperial regalia of Japan, together with the mirror Yata-no-Kagami (八咫鏡) and jewel Yasakani-no-Magatami (八尺瓊勾玉).
    Generations after Jimmu Tennou, the great warrior prince Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto (日本武尊) used the sword to save his life by cutting down grass that had been set on fire by a treacherous warlord. This is how it got its most famous name Kusanagi, meaning "Grass Cutter".

    **Chidori (千鳥) means "a thousand birds". It's from a story about a sixteenth-century military commander named Tachibana Dousetsu, who owned a sword named the Chidori. One day, he was struck by lightning while sitting under a tree. Acting quickly, he drew his sword and cut the Thunder God riding the lightning. This saved his life and after this incident, he changed the name of his sword from Chidori to Raikiri (雷切, "Lightning Cutter").

    ***A Katana is a type of Japanese sword. It has a slender, curved blade with a single edge and a grip long enough for two hands. It's renowned for its extraordinary sharpness.
    The blade of the katana is longer then about 60cm. Similar swords with shorter blades are called wakizashi (脇差).

    User: Gaara

    Amassing an inexhaustible amount of sand and turning it into an air defence shield!!

    This air defence technique creates a giant shield, suspended in mid-air, by raising a great amount of sand from the ground. By gathering the best possible mineral-rich sand, the hardness of the shield is very high. Furthermore, the sand had its defensive strength raised by flowing chakra through it. Also, the important point of this technique is Gaara's strong sense of duty as Kazekage to "protect the village"...!

    [picture of the Air Sand Protective Wall protecting Sunagakure against Deidara's C3 explosion]
    ↑Even though Deidara used his favourite trick, "C3," because of the solid shield, not a single injury was caused...!!

    *Kuusa, when written as 空佐, is a rank in the Japan Air Self-Defence Force. It is about equivalent to the rank of colonel.

    A double trap laid under the "Five Seal Barrier". This technique is automatically started when the "Forbidden"-fuda* are removed. The remover's appearance, battle skills, and so on are perfectly copied by a duplicate body that appears and attacks suddenly!! Because the double has a fixed amount of stamina, it's at a disadvantage in a drawn-out battle. In order to cancel this technique, the one who removed the fuda has no choice but to grow beyond how they were at the time they removed it.

    ↑→The instant the "forbidden"-fuda are removed, this technique is invoked. As the copies rise from the ground, they take on the shape of the one who removed the fuda!!

    The only way to win is to exceed oneself!?

    *A fuda, or o-fuda (御札) is a kind of talisman or charm, made of paper. It is placed on walls, pillars, doors , and windows as a guard against evil spirits and such. They are often seen in manga and anime as a kind of mystical weapon. The exploding tags in Naruto are fuda, for example.

    The countless number of summoned snakes crawl out of Orochimaru's mouth and shunt down the enemy... In front of such overwhelming numbers, a true"wall of snakes," defense and evasion mean nothing. The enemy can do nothing but become buried by the snakes. Furthermore, when the inexhaustibly crawling snakes gather, they become a defensive wall, blocking any kind of attack!!

    *"Mandara" is the Japanese pronunciation of the word "mandala," a concentric diagram with great spiritual and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism. It's written as 曼陀羅 in kanji. The first kanji is pronounced the same as the kanji for "ten thousand" (万) and actually overlaps somewhat in meaning. The second kanji bears a strong resemblance to the kanji for "snake" (蛇). The last kanji is the same in both words and means "silk," or "gauze". It's only used for it's sound, though.

    A solid barrier that closes up from left and right!!

    This technique uses chakra to activate the roots in the ground and, using Yamato as a reference point, makes wooden pillars appear from left and right. The wooden pillars join together in a dome-shape with Yamato at the centre. This process can be used to catch the enemy in a pincer attack!! Also, in case one confronts the enemy at a short distance, the enemy can be locked up inside the dome, setting the situation for a one-on-one fight. Furthermore, it functions as a easy shelter against the enemy's long-distance attacks, like shuriken and kunai. It certainly is an all-purpose wall.

    ↑While locking up the enemy, it also acts like a protective wall...!! Since its size can be adjusted at will, it has the ability to save a great number of people!!

    By sending chakra into the ground, the roots of the plants are converted into raw materials. This technique allows for a building to be constructed, by forcing accelerated growth. Just like with the "Four Pillar Prison Technique," the size and shape of the building are taken from the user Yamato's imagination or memories. By placing fuda* around the "Four Pillar House," one creates a barrier, making it impossible for the enemy to detect it and allowing on to "camp" in peace!!

    Changing chakra into timber under the ground and making it grow rapidly, while forming it into a wood prison. The size of the prison is based on Yamato's imagination. From insect cage to a great prison, one make it into whatever they want by regulating the amount of chakra used. The timber itself is treated with a chakra coating, making destruction extremely difficult.

    [picture of Yamato with behind him the Four Pillar Prison]
    ↑In but an instant, the prison from Yamato's imagination appears!! During war, it has the great ability to detain prisoners of war, but it can also be used as a disciplinary measure for quarrelling subordinates.

    Made from clay, this clone can take attacks and capture the enemy by taking them into its own body. If "Exploding Clay" is added to the clone, it can then make itself explode, taking the enemy with it!!

    *Bunshinjutsu (分身術, Clone Techniques) is the collective term for all types of bunshin, from the normal Clone Technique to the versatile Wood Clone Technique.

    Forbidden terrain already!?
    A bewitching ninjutsu for the use of women only!!

    A technique that implements the "Sexy: Girl on Girl Technique"***. A forbidden (?) technique that confuses and exites women**** by changing into two naked men. Unlike when changing into girls, other things are vital besides proportions, like the selection and combination of the men one transforms into and how they pose.

    [picture of Sasuke and Sai naked, on top of each other... *blood nose*]
    ↑By being well acquainted with the person the technique is targeted to and adjusting the transformation accordingly, one can deliver an even greater impact.

    *Oiroke (お色気) indicates sex appeal or interest in (the opposite) sex. It also indicates seductiveness and sensuality. Oiroke no Jutsu (おいろけの術) is usually translated as "Sexy Technique," so I decided to keep the "sexy" translation here.
    **Doushi (同士, 同志) means "comrade," or "companion". It can also be used to indicate homosexuality (specifically a homosexual couple).
    "Dansei doushi" (男性同士, "male comrades"), "otoko doushi" (男同士, "man comrades"), "otokonoko doushi" (男の子同士, "boy comrades"), and "shounen doushi" (少年同士, "boy comrades") specify male homosexuals.
    "Josei doushi" (女性同士, "female comrades"), "onna doushi" (女同士, "woman comrades"), "onnanoko doushi" (女の子同士, "girl comrades"), and "shoujo doushi" (少女同士, "girl comrades") specify female homosexuals.
    ***Sexy: Girl on Girl Technique (おいろけ・女の子どうしの術, Oiroke: Onnanoko Doushi no Jutsu)
    ****The word used here is 婦女子 (fujoshi, "woman"). This word is pronounced the same as 腐女子 ("rotten girl"), a slang word for a girl who's a great fan of comics featuring male homoeroticism (a yaoi fangirl).

    User: Haruno Sakura
    Offensive; Close range; Rank: C

    Main text

    People in general are liable to acknowledge it as super-strength, but this is an application of medical ninjutsu that demands concentration and minute chakra control. Maximal chakra is instantly kneaded inside the body, and all of it is enclosed into the right fist at a moment's notice!!
    That chakra is dispersed into the target with the impact of the punch, propagating the damage into its every nook and corner! Any kind of strength is meaningless before this technique (tn: go tell that to Senjutsu users! LOL). Since the damage dealt is dependent on the amount of chakra, it's also possible for an expert shinobi to collect it into their fingertips.

    Caption

    -Chakra and determination included into a punch! The hit pulverizes even stone effortlessly!!

    -The emanating fragments become blossoming flower petals and dance about !!

    Picture comments

    -With an ear-splitting battlecry, Sakura fervently commits her heart and soul into the attack!

    -Showered in punches, the ground is smashed into tiny bits by the impacts. Those are raised into the air like petals, hence the brand name of Cherry Blossom Collision.

    *The names of Kakuzu's techniques don't make much sense at first sight. This is because Kishimoto took the names from the legendary mecha anime "Mobile Suit Gundam" (機動戦士ガンダム, Kidou Senshi Gandamu), slightly altered them in some cases, and thought of kanji for them. Gian comes from the YMS-15 Gyan (ギャン).

    This technique uses chakra to temporarily enhance the head's metabolism and manipulate the hair that grew longer as a result of this. There is also chakra flowing through the lengthened hair, making its hardness comparable to that of steel wire. By thickly bundling the hair, its strength is further increased, also increasing its destructive power.

    A vast sea of surging sand captures and binds the enemy entirely

    An enormous quantity of flowing sand envelops the enemy from every direction like a raging, surging sea!
    Using ordinary sand, a perfectly airtight space is created, in which the enemy is captured; a capturing ninjutsu is characteristic to Gaara. Since the sand's speed, hardness, and scope depends on the amount of chakra that is poured into it, it can be adjusted to match the target's size and special characteristics. Running on the ground, or flying in the air - Anyone who becomes Gaara's enemy is awaiting a fate of certain capture. Also, even if the target manages to escape from the sand's prison, an attack like "Sand Binding Coffin" can be used immediately, creating a two-fold set-up.

    ↓The powerful arm of sand can even cover the heavens! Even Deidara, flying through the air, was inside its hands in an instant!!
    [picture of the Sand Binding Prison enveloping Deidara]

    *Like most names of Gaara's techniques, this one contains a pun. Sabaku, when written as 砂漠, is the Japanese word for "desert". The first kanji literally means "sand," while the second kanji literally means "vast," "vague," or "obscure". In the name of this technique, the second kanji was replaced with the kanji for "bind" (縛), which is pronounced the same.

    Ascertaining the pathogen entered into a human body by the enemy and removing it all!

    By perceiving the disturbances of chakra in the body, the poison, pathogen, or such that is causing the injury to the human body can be traced. Using a chakra scalpel, the affected part is cut open, then the toxin is drawn out, while the injury is simultaneously treated. This technique is considered extremely difficult, even among medical ninjutsu.
    Usually, after treatment with this technique, an antidote or other medicine is used for a complete recovery.

    ↑The diagnosis ability to see through the affected part, the skill to properly incise it, together with unmatched chakra control is required for this technique.

    A performance by three of the puppets from the "Chikamatsu Collection". The three puppets get into a triangular formation and by opening the mechanisms marked with "Buddha," "Dharma," and "Sangha,"* respectively, they invoke this technique. A terrifying tornado breaks out and suck the target into the centre of the formation. Everything that is sucked into the centre of the formation is completely crushed and shot out from the back.

The Buddha refers to either the Gautama Buddha or the concept of the Buddha nature, the Dharma refers to the teachings of the Buddha, and the Sangha to the community of those who have attained enlightenment (or more broadly to all practising Buddhists).

    A needle hell of despair, created from poisonous Iron Sand!!

    By combining two high-density Iron Sand masses with opposing magnetic fields, the magnetic force increases immediately, and the repellent forces of the magnetic fields scatter the Iron Sand across a vast range. Because the paths of the Iron Sand branch off irregularly, it's difficult to get a complete overview. The Iron Sand is drenched in poison, so even one scratch can become a fatal wound. Furthermore, even if the branches are evaded successfully, the target will lose their path of retreat, allowing the real body to attack next! A dreadful evil power, filled with trap after trap!!

    The air is filled with a fine-weaved network of Iron Sand needles!!

    [picture of the Iron Sand World Method expanding in front of Sakura]
    ↑The poison-drenched jet-black Iron Sand needles turn the world in front of the target's eyes into a picture of Hell.

    →Even if the needles and poison are avoided, the Sandaime Kazekage is waiting to attack. When the enemy is stuck in that situation, there is nothing more to do then wait imminent death...

    *Iron sand, or black sand as it is also known, is sand with high concentrations of metals like magnetite. It's dark grey to black in colour and magnetic.

    A piercing and pressuring "concerto" technique that gives birth to a mortal "mass" of Iron Sand!!

    Gathering enormous volumes of Iron Sand and compressing them into high-density shapes! As the hardness is greatly increased, gigantic steel-like weapons can be created in an instant...! Because the source is Iron Sand, the shapes can be whatever the user wants. When it is tapered off into a sharp point like a triangular spindle-shape, it becomes a "giant spear". When the area of contact is increased by shaping it like a solid rectangle, it becomes a difficult to evade "giant iron hammer". By taking into account the opponent type and battle arena terrain, the best attack shape can be selected. Naturally, because the Iron Sand has a strong magnetic field, the opponent cannot use metal weapons or tools.

    ↓With such weight, even the bedrock is easily broken through and shattered into small pieces!! Even if such an attack is evaded, the unstable foothold allows for even more attacks!!

From the moment the user has finished preparing the attack, evading it will be extremely difficult...!! Furthermore, the user can also use an attack pattern where the Iron Sand bullets are shaped into sharp needles, increasing their ability wound or kill the enemy. Since the Iron Sand carries magnetic force and is also drenched in poison, defending agaist this technique is almost impossible. This technique is especially threatening to puppet users, since the puppets can be made completely unable to fight.

    [picture of Jiraiya, Fukasaku and Shima performing the Goemon]

    *Goemon comes from the legendary sixteenth-century ninja Ishikawa Goemon (石川五右衛門) who was boiled alive in oil after a failed assassination attempt on the daimyo Toyotomi Hideyoshi (豊臣秀吉).

    Sweeping over like a rainstorm
    An extremely fast mountain of needles of unkempt hair!!

    A technique that hardens the hair on one's head and continuously shoots it at the enemy. The sheer speed of this technique makes it the fastest attack possible in "Sage Mode"...!! Also, at the same time that Jiraiya kneads the chakra needed for senjutsu and fires the hair needles, Fukasaku and Shima activate Jiraiya's hair roots, making limitless rapid-fire possible!!

    →↓Without a doubt, the "Hair Needle Senbon" hit ceaselessly like rain!! The sharpened points of the needles turn the target's entire body into a pincushion.

    *Senbon are a special kind of needle, used, for example, in acupuncture. Haku fought using these.

    →The many scattering and dancing pieces of paper, are folded into the shaped of butterflies, like origami. The fly away, leaving nothing behind but their lingering scent.

    Confetti, dancing in the wind

    By converting one's own body into countless small pieces of paper, they can move freely and have the ability to change form! It has many uses from reconnaissance to surprise attacks. Furthermore, the magical way the countless pieces of paper dance in mid-air, changing shape, gives them a fascinating charm.

    [picture of Ryuusui's body covered in Konan's paper sheets, while Konan herself is partly reassembled and holding a paper spear]
    ←The enemy entangled in the paper looses all ability to move, allowing Konan to attack with a paper shaped into a weapon.

    *Shikigami, when written as 式神, refer to a kind of spirit summoned to serve an Onmyouji (a kind of sorcerer). These spirits are often depicted as changing into small pieces of paper once harmed or finished with their task. In the name of this technique, the kanji for "god" (神, kami) has been replaced with the kanji for "paper" (紙), which is pronounced the same. This is likely done to emphasise the paper nature of Konan's shikigami and to point out the subtle difference between them and traditional shikigami.

    The ten masterpieces of the pioneer of puppetry, each one boasting a military prowess capable of matching a thousand!!

    The main point of this technique is summoning The "Chikamatsu Collection of Ten Puppets," the masterpieces of the first puppet user Monzaemon* and using the "Puppet Technique" to manipulate them at will. Called "An amount matching ones fingers," with this puppet collection it is literally possible to use "one puppet with each finger," each boasting a power matching a thousand...!! However, to use all of these secret mechanisms demands extremely high class expertise and skill!!

    [picture of Chiyo unrolling the scroll holding these puppets]
    ↑The scroll Chiyo unrolls. The Chikamatsu Collection appears from the "Gate" (門, mon) crests...!!
    ↓The "Ten strongest puppets," that are said to have once "conquered an entire castle"!!

    ←↑Taijutsu, ninjutsu, projectile weapons, and so on. The "Chikamatsu Collection" reveals they have terrifying prowess in each of these!! Furthermore, as they can change their numbers by combining, the number of abilities they can show becomes even greater!!

    *Chikamatsu Monzaemon is a famous Japanese playwright, sometimes called the Shakespear of Japan. He's most famous for the plays he wrote for Bunraku, the traditional Japanese puppet theatre. Both "mon"s in Monzaemon are written with the kanji for "gate" (門), explaining the crests on the scroll.

    Ninjutsu, No rank, Supplementary, All ranges
    User: Pain

    Transferring one's chakra to a sacrifice and possessing them
    As long as they stay alive, they'll play the part of a strong person!!

    Pain allocates chakra from an "Akatsuki" member to a target person, allowing them to fight via an elaborate "copy". The power of the copy is in proportion to the volume of allocated chakra. The original's abilities are also available...!! However, once the chakra runs out, the technique is cancelled and the copy dies. As it even uses up the target's chakra, this is an incredibly brutal technique.

    ↓The one who performs the technique and decides how much chakra is allocated is Pain...
    [picture of Pain]

    [picture of Kisame's clone, holding the Samehada]
    →The "Shapeshifting Technique" also imitates the weapons and tools held by the original person, allowing the copy to fight with them...!!

    For a short time a part of "Akatsuki"!!

    [picture of Itachi's clone]
    ←The appearance of the person on whom the "Shapeshifting Technique" is performed is 100% identical to the original person.

    [picture of Itachi's clone performing the Great Fireball Technique]
    ←Of course, the techniques used by the copy are the same as those of the original person. Even the pride of the "Uchiha clan," the "Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique"**, can be flawlessly reproduced!!

    *The kanji literally mean "shape," "imitation" and "shift," "revolve" respectively. "Shapeshifting" is a perfect translation for these kanji, but "shouten" isn't the word normally used as the Japanese translation for "shapeshifting," which would be "henshin" (変身).

    User: Chiyo

    When one can use puppets with transcending skill, one can even manipulate living bodies!!

    [picture of Sakura evading one of Sasori's attacks thanks to Chiyo's puppetry skills]
    ↑The origins of this technique lie on the battlefield. When a puppet user's puppets where all destroyed, they would begin using corpses. To perform this technique with a living person requires both parties to trust each other deeply.

    A puppet performance technique where chakra threads are attached to various spots on a person's body; the head, torso, both arms, and both legs. The person being manipulated by gains the ability to not only use their own techniques, but the skills of the puppeteer as well...!!

    *Souen (操演) literally means "manipulating performance". This obviously refers to puppets being manipulated in a show. I translated this into simply "puppet performance".
    **When written as 人身御供, hitomi gokuu means "human sacrifice", or "sacrificial victim". This gives a somewhat dark deeper meaning to this technique's name.

    Protean whole-body melting!!

    By liquefying the whole body at will, this technique makes it impossible to receive damage from physical attacks. Be it to evade an enemy's attack during a short range battle, to infiltrate a structure, or to launch a surprise attack from one's liquefied state, this technique boasts a high strategic value.

    →When locked up in an airtight container, he cannot move about.

    ↓From a single hair to the skin and muscles. Everything can be liquefied and solidified at will.

    *Suika is the Japanese term for "hydration," which is basically adding water to something. However, since Suigetsu actually changes into water, I used a term that signifies this: "hydrification". "the process of turning something into water".

    From the tips of five fingers, chakra is released into the water, changing it into ferocious sharks, striking down on their prey!! The five sharks circle the target with high speed, creating a raging stream that takes away their prey's freedom of movement. Then, their sharp teeth tear into the enemy~~ A technique symbolic of Kisame's extremely cruel nature!!

    High-viscosity, chakra-mixed water is spit out, aimed at a surface of wide scope. When entering it unprepared, moving about will become impossible, but one can still move if they sent chakra to the soles of their feet first. One can effectively reduce their enemy's area of activity with this technique.

    [picture of Kakuzu about to get caught in this technique]
    ↑It has the effect of being able to take complete control over the battlefield. The normal scope is just a few metres, but if prepared, it is also possible to make an entire pond of starch syrup.

    *Mizuame is a Japanese sweetener made by converting starch to sugars. It takes the form of a clear, thick, and most of all sticky liquid. It can be literally translated as "Water Candy," emphasizing its likeness to water and explaining why it is used in a Suiton technique.

    A technique that creates a waterfall by developing spring water in a place without water veins and manipulating the resulting water current!! A very convenient technique. One the one hand, it has practical use for things like training and relaxation. On the other hand, because it changes the environment on such a grand scale, it also has the effect of hiding one's location from the enemy by confusing them.

    ↓The width of the water source, waterfall, and basin can be expended, as long as one can continue to send chakra in.
