    User: Momochi Zabuza
    Supplementary; Rank: D

    Main text

    This displacement jutsu is a specialty of Hidden Mist shinobi, where one causes a mist to spring forth by lifting up some water, then goes in and out of sight at will from within the pearly-white realm. The mist's thickness is controled by the amount of chakra kneaded into it. Making a liberal use of this, Zabuza carried out a great many assassinations, and was dreaded as the"Prodigy of Silent Murder".

    -The Mist settles... Only dead bodies remain...

    -Silently he vanishes, and silently he reappears...!! Only death awaits those the mist has dispossessed of their field of vision...

    Main text

    A ninjutsu where the caster, conceals themselves underground, drags the object of their attack down into the earth, robbing them of their freedom, in addition to which they can start to attack. Kakashi used it against Sasuke, who lay motionless where he'd been drawn into the ground, at which point this jutsu was originally used to for torture, by cutting into the enemy's neck.

    Caption

    -Pulling someone into the ground and aiming for their head!!

    Picture comment

    -Sasuke has been turned into a living head. Quite predictably, he can't do much besides acknowledging his own helplessness.

    Supplementary; Close, Medium ranges, Rank: C

    Main text

    A jutsu where one releases their own mind, forcing it into the subject, thus usurping the opponent's body. Success with this bold move will instantly determine the issue of a battle. The risk is just as great, though, as the caster's body is defenseless during its utilisation, on top of which damage to the possessed opponent will be reflected upon the caster's real body. Originally, this ninjutsu is suited for intelligence-gathering missions rather than battle.

    Caption

    -Her heart and spirit* fly into the air and steal away the enemy's body!!

    Picture comments

    -Because she propels all of her mental energy, the shooting range and number of hits are considerably limited.

    -Should the jutsu succeed, the possessed body of her opponent is hers to manipulate as she pleases.

    Main text

    An additional ninjutsu where one puts chakra into a blade such as a kunai or a sword, thus augmenting its power to harm and kill! The materialized chakra becomes part of the blade, promptly cleaving and slicing what it touches! In addition, it's also possible to alter the weapon's attack range by regulating the amount of chakra put into it. Ascertaining its position and tracks is a nigh-unfeasible deed.

    Caption

    -Keeping track of the luminous blades as they extend and retract is painfully hard!!

    Picture comment

    -High enough in density to become visible, the chakra strengthens the weapons and becomes a blade in its own right!!

    -Asuma infuses his brass knuckles - his weapons of choice - with this jutsu and goes into battle.

    Users: Nara Shikamaru; Nara Shikaku
    Offensive; Close, Medium ranges; Rank: none

    Main text

    A more battle-oriented jutsu developed from House Nara's arcane, Kage Mane**. The shadow is endowed with physical strength, and by transforming it and setting it in motion, one can deal direct damage to the enemy. The most efficient way to do so is strangulation, hence the name.

    Caption

    -Strange shadows shaped after hands. They bind themselves around the neck and steal life away!!

    Picture comment

    -The shorter the distance towards the target, the stronger the shadow gets.

    Konoha Hundred Leaves Collection

    Main text

    The basic application of House Nara's hijutsu (arcane art) is capture and restraint of the enemy, but it will prove efficient in many ways depending on how it is employed. The size of the area covered by the shadows cannot be changed. In regards with that limitation, this is by far the best jutsu in the set as far as successful use of said shadows' particularities is concerned.

    Transformation
    The shadow can be transformed. Utilizing that particularity, the caster can turn their shadow into a string-like shape, thus expanding its hitting range. It can also be ramified to attack multiple enemies.

    Enlargement
    If the sources of light themselves can be controlled, it's also possible to alter the surface covered by the shadow. A good grasp of the sun's location or even an artificial source of light will prove instrumental.

    Captions

    -A battle between "potentiality" and "limitations".

    -A large variety of shadow arts!

    Picture comments

    -With Kage Kubi Shibari, the shadows can be stretched thin enough to attack even [bodily] sections such as a finger.

    -Employ of a "hikaridama" (light ball), a ninja tool, enables dramatic alterations of the shadows, albeit temporarily.

    User: Yamanaka Inoichi
    Supplementary; Close, Medium ranges, Rank: B

    Main text

    A ninjutsu where one sends their chakra into the subject's nervous system, thus operating their body at will. The opponents this jutsu is cast upon are completely under control, their bodies disconnected from their will, their movements stolen from them. This ninjutsu, used by Inoichi is definitely different from the Shintenshin no jutsu* his daughter Ino employs.
    The difference is, the caster is able to retain their consciousness. Thanks to this, one can mind the safety of their own body even during the course of the jutsu's activation. Situations of numerical superiority for the adversary are precisely where Shinranshin no jutsu - which freely manipulates human beings - will display its efficiency, by getting the enemies to kill one another.

    Caption

    -Those captured are entwined in the coils of madness!

    Picture comment

    -Control can be exerted even from a distance. This jutsu is arguably the most suitable to confuse the enemy.

    Since ancient times, Myoubokuzan, the headquarters of the Toads, has exerted a great influence over the shinobi world. Sitting at its peak, stands the Toad Ancient whose age, as rumor has it, numbers in millenia. He is a constantly smiling figure... However, the enormous chakra pool he has at his disposal, he employs to see the future. The Mountain of Confusion has known a neverending succession of challenges from statesmen seeking out this power.

    Main text

    The dreams Oogama-sennin communicates are prophecies. Which is to say where other kinds of fortune-telling will draw a line, during his hours of fast sleeping, his eyes literally transcend space and time, reflecting fragmentary images of someone else's future. Because of this, his prophecies boast a fulfillment ratio of 100%.
    Once, only once, Oogama-sennin saw his own future. One that would affect the fate of the shinobi world. Several centuries later, a young boy would appear, and he would grant him the power of the Toads. In order for him to gaze upon what was to come with his own eyes.

    Caption

    -Oogama-sennin's wondrous, miraculous Prophecies.

    -His visions are fragmentary dreams... For that reason, he can't go into detail when he foretells something.

    -An absolute prophecy. Oogama-sennin himself has had his own future confided in him by those dreams.

    Spoiler: Databook 1 - Hyuuga Hinata
    The kind and gentle dancing fighter* with feelings for Naruto

    Because... This is my Nindou** too

    Although she is a heir to the renowned Hyuuga Main House, she is full of compassion, and dislikes competition and fighting: such is Hinata's personality. Currently, her father has given up of her, and she is assigned to difficult missions as a Genin. Even being in that dire situation hasn't broken her, she hasn't lost that kindness of hers, and that's because Naruto was there, inside her heart. And now, Hinata is strengthening herself, soundly and steadily.

    -Hinata's fighting ability was found lacking by the Hyuuga clan. But her latent potential is quite conspicuous, so development is to be expected in the future.
    -Hinata is a shy and withdrawn person who can't do anything in front of her dear Naruto. Something she's been constantly wishing to change about herself.

    Timidity and hesitation, unease and nervousness... An ebbing and flowing love story

    [Attack]
    Hinata is in love with Naruto, but regardless, she can't take a step forward. However, she's able to pluck up her own brand of courage sometimes, as proved by that "attack" of hers. Because that's her Way of the Ninja**...?!

    ↑She can't even look Naruto in the eyes as she hands him the ointment to treat the injuries he's received during the Chuunin exam, but she's put all her strength in this...!

    [Naruto and Herself]
    There's a definite reason behind Hinata's passion for Naruto. She wants "to become like him". Shackled by the strict laws of the Hyuuga clan, and further weakened by her inferiority complex towards her younger sister, Hinata is always seeking strength and power.

    ↑Hinata is never assertive about anything, something she tends to hate about herself.
    ↑When she was fighting Neji, no matter how many times she was struck down, she would think of Naruto and stand up...!
    →Hinata admires and esteems Naruto. But he is totally clueless about those feelings.

    The one she admires taught her about the courage to stand up!!
    Chuunin Exam; Third Preliminary Test
    Her fight against Neji

    The time had finally come to fight against Neji, from the Branch House, and hater of the Main House. Hinata disliked conflict, despite which she fought desperately in order to change herself. But as expected, she was no match for Neji, whom people refer to as the strongest in the Hyuuga clan, (tn: The next sentences I can't read properly, let alone understand. But it's about how she didn't abandon until the end thanks to Naruto).

    ↑Naruto is throwing taunts at Neji. Hinata is able to draw courage from his encouragements...
    ↑A scene where she even fights on par with the great Neji. The blood of the Hyuuga also flows is Hinata's veins!
    →But she yields before Neji's Juuken, and gets wounded and beaten down several times over...
    ←Earnest feelings are stronger than any weapon.

    Tayuya manipulates three Angry Demons with the sound of her flute. Her releasing of the materialized spirits - which is to say the special chakra sealed inside of those Demons - marks the start of the grand finale, a feast: the Riot of the Poltergeist... The materialized spirits are composed almost only of mental energy, so the chakra is in an unstable state. Therefore, they are starved for physical energy, search for it and gnash at it greedily...! There is no choice: the prey engaged in this endless pursuit perishes in the unsightly, frantic choregraphy.

    Dancing in the sky are successive attacks of a wondrous bird!!

    Utmost speed and utmost strength should be collected into one's own fist with all one's heart~~ The "Morning Peacock" is the certain-kill taijutsu born from this philosophy of Guy. The principle of this taijutsu is to rapidly increase the body's abilities by opening the "Eight Gates"? up to and including the sixth gate and then strike the enemy down with countless punches. With speed so high that the friction produces flames, the destructive power of the successive attacks doesn't even give the victim time to say his farewells. All enemies that faced this technique in the past were utterly destroyed! When Guy looks forward to certain victory, the flames from his fists paint the sky. As bright as the sunrise, as brilliant as a peacock's tail feathers!!

    ↓Surely only Guy could remain safe even after opening up to the sixth gate!!

The excessively high speed of the rotation strips the caster of their field of vision, but marking the enemy beforehand makes it possible to tail them with the sense of smell!

    This combined shapeshifting where man and beast become a single entity is a specialty of the Inuzuka clan, a clan that has been walking side by side with Ninja Dogs for generations.

Furthermore, using jutsu in addition to this gives birth to an extraordinary power of destruction.

    -The voracious wolf totally obliterates the worthless masses* in its ferocity!!

    -This is the combination ninjutsu Kiba and Akamaru owe to their friendship. Like wolves, they corner the enemy with an overwhelming offensive power.

    A body slam where one spins at a high speed, thus augmenting power and perforating force to an uncanny maximum*. Since this is a solo instance of the Gatsuuga ("Double Traveling Fang), as it's called, it is characterized by an even greater attack speed potential. It was apparently incomplete during the Chuunin exam, but since then training has improved it into a death-dealing "fang".

    -An attack of fulminating savagery is unleashed, akin to the crushing fangs of a gigantic beast!

    -The roar the fanged beast!!

    Picture comment

    -Including a spin to this simple charge earns it a perforating power that drills even through stone. For a direct impact however, there's a need to anticipate the enemy's movements, as the trajectory is somewhat linear.

    According to Sai's story, Shin died of illness, but the truth of the matter is surrounded with mystery. Judging from the contents of Sai's picture book, one can't put aside the possibility that he was killed by a fellow child during a training session in emotion-smothering. Such a training used to be practiced in the Hidden Mist, but assuming it also existed in Konoha... what exactly were ROOT and Danzou trying to achieve...?

    Is this heavenly net of rain, falling down and enclosing, the tears of a god grieving for his village?

    A perception ninjutsu, allowing one to freely manipulate rain infused with the user's own chakra. In the village of Amegakure, it rains each week on Sunday... This rain falls from rain clouds, formed with Pain's own chakra. During this technique, the falling raindrops are closely linked to pain's senses. When the rain is obstructed by a chakra belonging to someone not of the village, the existence of the intruder can be detected. Also, in order to function in the "place" where the technique was invoked, the rain will keep on falling until Pain uses the seal to cancel it. Therefore, when Pain leaves the village, he always uses this technique, keeping a close eye on the village of Amegakure.

    | Vast knowledge and great skill - The abilities that allow for medical ninjutsu |

    During the "Shinobi World War," Tsunade proposed including a medical ninja with every platoon. However, because realising that idea would vast amount of time, it was rejected. In reality, being a medical ninja demands a variety of skills and knowledge of the human body and medicine, in addition to delicate chakra control. Nowadays, the training system used has increased the number of medical ninja. Still, people who have completely mastered the techniques are still scarce. As they are still hard to come by, these skills are very precious.

    ↑Despite being hit by an attack, she still heals her own wounds. A technique, said to be perfection of external medical treatment.

    ↓The knowledge and technical skills needed to mix medicines are also required from medical ninja.

With all members deeply concentrating, the sealing statue is started up and with the "absorption chakra" released from the mouth, the Bijuu's? chakra is extracted and then sealed. The chakra of the "Bijuu" is massive; the invocation of this technique spans several days, even for Akatsuki-class users. For regular shinobi, even just starting up the statue would be impossible.

    ←↑The "absorption chakra" is shaped into nine dragons and the chakra of the "Bijuu" is consumed and sealed. After the sealing is complete, the statue opens his eyes.

    ? The "gen" in "Genryuu" is the same as the "gen" in "genjutsu". It means "phantom" or "illusion" and although it is usually translated as "illusion," I went with "phantom" here since it fits better in my opinion; although the dragons are ethereal, they are not illusionary.
    ? Jinchuuriki (人柱力) means the "power of human sacrifice". They're the hosts of the Bijuu.

Whoever hears it will be assailed by the vivid sensation that their limbs have been fastened with sturdy ropes, thus becoming unable to move about freely. At the same time, they are fed morbid hallucinations, which makes it also possible to run them down mentally. Given that the means of transmission is sound-based, it has a large range of effectiveness, on top of which it can be applied even without knowledge of the enemy's position, which makes for an exceedingly convenient jutsu.

Bones that change form and density at the user's discretion as they are generated, turning into weapons such as the world has never seen.

    Cutting, carving, piercing, and stabbing. The osseous blades seek blood voraciously, in addition to which their numbers are limitless. As long as it doesn't tire, the body may supply this power indefinitely.

    -The ability to manipulate osteoblasts and osteoclats,* and regulate calcium density. Thanks to this, it is possible to shape the bones to take on multiple characteristics.

    *Osteoblasts and osteoclasts are respectively the cells that create and resorb bone, thus regulating the amount of bone tissue.

    -Colored by the user's aptitude for battle, the dangerous bone weapons become omnipotent, growing into the most powerful of arsenals! In short this ability, the "possibility to generate all manners of armament out of bones" holds the potential to crush down any defense.

    -Furthermore, using such particular features as shape and hardness alteration will make it an impregnable fortress when employed defensively. For a shinobi, the power of changing shape at will according to one's goals or to account for whatever transpires during battle, generating an infinity of ways to attack with: indeed, the power to dominate battle itself is a dream and an art form that radiates with the shine of supremacy.
    Wherever Gods' Chosen, those who have embraced their gift for slaughter are found... the battlefied is always tainted red with blood.

    -Kimimaro sublimated his power into the 5 dances. Even the great Orochimaru was in craving admiration before this gift and wished to make him his "vessel"...

    -A defensive power that can endure the pressure of Gaara's "Sand Funeral". Truly an omnipotent offense and defense.

    User: Momochi Zabuza

    Main text

    A spherical prison created out of water. Destroying this jutsu from the inside is nearly impossible. However, it's indispensable for the caster to be in contact with part of the cell for it to maintain its shape, so if they take their hand away, the jutsu will be dispelled immediately. This jutsu shows its true might not when one is alone, but when many allies are present.

    Caption

    -The water prison nobody escapes from!!

    Picture comment

    -Because of the nature of this jutsu, things can get a little difficult if one is attacked by a third party.

    From the sand he is himself carrying, he grinds the rocks and minerals from underground into an homogenous sea of sand and manipulates it like a tsunami that engulfs absolutely all things in his line of sight!! This jutsu is for no one except Gaara, who lives up to his "Of the Desert*" namesake. This raging sea deals a lot of damage by itself, but one can further take advantage of the sand for a second and a third consecutive assault! That sublime succession of sand attacks has this jutsu as its starting point!!

    -Causing the atmosphere to quake and the ground to rumble, the surging sea of sand swallows everything whole.

    -Raging waves, surging billows.

    Picture comments

    -"As long as I have sand... I can do anything." True to his word, he displays a jutsu well beyond the imaginable!!

    -The billow of sand engulfs the enemy and a large portion of the landscape altogether, creating a vast sandy wasteland.
    *"Ryuusa"="quicksand". Add a little pun on "sabaku", and you turn the "desert" into a "cascade of sand". So Gaara is actually "Gaara of the Desert's Cascading Sand".

    "With sand around, the word impossible doesn't exist", says Gaara. During combat, he's thought up multiple offensive and auxiliary methods to use it with. Sabaku Fuyuu is one among those; a trick where he uses the sand to support his own weight and float in midair.

    -A liberal sand manipulation technique to float in the air!!

    -Countless blades are assaulting from underground! Above ground, no place to run to...!!

    -On top of the sand that is held in suspension with chakra. There is only one way out, and Gaara comes up with it.

    Main text

    A jutsu to capture the opponent by manipulating the sand supplied by his gourd into burying them alive. This is sand, and therefore it's not consistent in form, and there is no escaping it, regardless of the defensive strategy adopted. Whether the people trapped live or die is for Gaara to decide, but the probability of getting out alive from a symbol of death such as the sand casket is quite low...

    Caption

    -He commands the sand, forbidding movement to those bound and to be punished by it**!!

    Picture comment

    -Seized by the Sabaku Kyuu and turned into a clod of sand. At this point there's nothing else besides resigning oneself and wait for death.
    *Sabaku (砂漠) means "desert". Except when the "baku" part is written 縛 for "seizing", or "capturing".
    **戒め (imashime) means "commanding", "binding", or even "punishing".

    Main text

    A terrifying jutsu to end someone's life, squashing them after they are captured with the Sabaku Kyuu**. The sand closes in from every direction, its pressure numbering in tons, and before long, the opponent experiences death, their blood instantly scattered from the sand and the openings in it. Despite this cruelty, it's as if some splendid fireworks had just been shot up. A chunk of meat returns to the ground, its crimson red blood absorbed by the sand, its strength becoming Gaara's...

    -Put to eternal rest by the coffin of Sand!!

    -The bloody tears of the dead blend with the mass of sand.

    *Similar to "Sabaku Kyuu", the author made a pun, except this time "baku" means "waterfall" or cascade".
    **See DB 1: Sabaku Kyuu
    ***The Japanese for "to call" is 呼ぶ (yobu). One pun later, "yobu" is written with 与, the Kanji for "bestowing", or "granting".

    Main text

    A specialty from Gaara of the Desert, a jutsu where he makes the land a stage for his representation. Sabaku Taisou is identical to Sabaku Kyuu (Desert's Binding Sand Coffin**) in that the stream [of sand] captures and grinds. But as far as scale goes, this is a totally different league. Kimimaro held his own against a single attack, but multiple obliterations are where this technique shines.

    -Completely trapped he is by Ryuusa Bakuryuu's tidal wave. Deprived of all means of escaping, he is crushed...!!
    *"Taisou"="imperial funeral". And naturally, since things are never that simple with Kishi, the spelling of the word "sabaku" has been fiddled with (cf. DB 2: Ryuusa Bakuryuu).

    Gaara always carries around a lump of sand inside the gourd on his back. Perhaps the sand actually moves on its own accord... In any event, it flows independently from Gaara's will, and protects him from every enemy attack without exception. Even in the Hidden Sand village, only Gaara is able to use this particular jutsu.

    -A flowing wall of sand. A jutsu accessible to Gaara only!!

    -Even though Gaara doesn't move a muscle, the sand promptly shifts to intercept the attack, as if it had a will of its own.

    The reason why Temari says "Gaara cannot be hurt by anyone" lies with this Armor of Sand. Just as the name implies, he wears the sand over his whole body like an armor, thus boosting his defensive ability. However, this jutsu Gaara activates willingly is highly chakra-consuming, on top of which it is inferior to the Sand Shield* in defensive ability. Proper, clever use of the Sand Shield and Armor is precisely what the Absolute Defense is about.

    Caption

    -The will of the sand shell. The "why" of the Absolute Defense.

    <The Difference>
    between the Sand Shield and the Sand Armor...

    The sand adheres to the caster's body like a shell. This is the Sand Armor. When the sand flows in response to external attacks, it's the Sand Shield.
    Dummy on the right: Sand Armor.
    Dummy on the left: Sand Shield.

    A jutsu used by Gaara while in the process of transforming into his perfect form. He shapes the sand composing his arms into countless shuriken, and he swings them both! Taking advantage of that formidable centrifugal force, the fired blades of sand change into biting, dangerous weapons!
    The caster creates and fires an uninterrupted succession of sand rounds, tearing everything in sight to pieces as they wildly fly about... Before this fierce attack, closing in on the caster is pure foolishness, and even fleeing is equally unfeasible.

    -The sharp blades of sand fly wildly, as an emission that splits apart the air!!

    -Strange, dangerous weapons appear on the surface of his arms... His uncannily strong arms gives them furious speed. The solidified sand rounds eclipse even steel with their might!!

    A jutsu from Gaara, when metamorphosed into Shukaku of the Sand. He inhales air with the mouths on his face and all over his body, and blows it out along with a chakra-coated sand cloud!!

    Main text

    It's an extremely simple jutsu where two shuriken are piled one onto another and thrown simultaneously. However, depending on the way it's used, it can prove its absolute efficiency! The trick is to somehow draw the enemy's attention towards the upper shuriken. Then, to deal with the path of the lower shuriken. If the enemy notices both shuriken, the technique ends up losing all of its efficiency.
