Basic Chakra Natures



Katon :: Fire Release

Katon :: Fire Release is one of the basic Chakra Natures. This nature allows the user to create fire by increasing the temperature of their chakra. Commonly affiliated with the Tiger hand seal, Fire Release techniques are cause burning and explosive damage. Shinobi of the Uchiha Clan all have an affinity for the Fire Chakra Nature.

Fire Release is strong against wind because air naturally feeds fire, but weak against water due to its ability to extinguish flames. A sufficiently powerful fire technique can overcome its natural weakness of low-level water technique by evaporating it.


Fūton :: Wind Release

Fūton :: Wind Release is one of the basic Chakra Natures. This nature allow the user to manipulate wind by shaping their chakra to be as sharp and as thin as possible, very much like the blades of a pair of scissors. Wind techniques are suited for short-to-mid-range combatants, and combine brute force and precision to deal cutting and slashing damage. Wind Release is the rarest nature of all the five elements, but despite this, it is common to Shinobi of the Sanjuro and Yuki Clans as part of their clan abilities.Wind-based techniques are typically performed by causing/generating movement in the air, such as the user blowing air from their mouth or creating air currents with objects. Users can even channel wind-natured chakra into blades to increase their range and cutting power.

Wind is naturally strong against lightning techniques due to air being a strong electrical insulator, and likewise naturally weak against fire techniques due to fire's ability to consume and grow when exposed to air. In the case of a combination, it augments the strength of a fire technique as well as increases the concussive power of a water technique.


Raiton :: Lightning Release

Raiton :: Lightning Release is one of the basic Chakra Natures. This nature allows the user to generate lightning by increasing the high frequency vibrations of their chakra, allowing for piercing damage and fast movement. The electrical techniques tend to paralyze the target so that they are unable to move and leave them vulnerable to a finishing strike. While uncommon, lightning can be infused into bladed weapons in a way similar to Wind Release through chakra. This can increase the piercing power through vibrations, with the added effect of inducing numbness. When the technique is released from their bodies, and thus not requiring physical contact, it does not move as fast as true lightning. Instead, due to the control the user has to exert over it, it moves far slower, which can give opponents time to react. This Chakra Nature is common to the Shinobi of the Inazuma Clan, as it is part of the clan ability.

A lightning technique is naturally weak against wind, and strong against earth, as lightning can easily travel through it, as well as break it apart. Lightning also has a unique relation with water, since water conducts electricity. This means that a Water Release technique can be used to increase the damage of a Lightning Release technique and vice versa. Though this also means that if one's opponent still has a physical connection with the water, either a pre-existing source or one created with their own chakra, then they can be paralyzed via their own technique.


Doton :: Earth Release

Doton :: Earth Release is one of the basic Chakra Natures. This nature allow the user to manipulate the surrounding earth for offensive and defensive purposes. It also allows the user to create earthen material; be it dirt, mud, or rock. Earth Release techniques have the ability to change the strength and composition of the earth from being as hard as metal to as soft as clay. This includes allowing the user to travel through ground and rock in various ways which can be essential for both transportation and for setting up attacks or creating defenses or for offense. Indeed, this makes earth techniques one of the most versatile of the elemental techniques.

It is naturally strong against water and weak against lightning. Earth Release affinities are the most common among the Shinobi of the Ishida Clan, as it is part of their clan ability. This Chakra nature is most commonly affiliated with the Snake hand seal.


Suiton :: Water Release

Suiton :: Water Release is one of the basic Chakra Natures. This nature allows the user to manipulate pre-existing water, or create their own, by turning their chakra into water. It takes much more ability to create the water than to manipulate what is already available. One of the most versatile of the five basic Chakra Natures, Water Release techniques can not only change shape but state as well (Such as fogs and mists, as Ice is an Advanced Chakra Nature). Moreover, the water becomes more solid in the process as well. The water affinity is common to Shinobi of the Hōzuki Clan. The offensive water techniques commonly appear to do damage from the sudden force that they exert, which would cause massive internal damage to a human.

Water Release will naturally extinguish fire but will naturally be overcome by earth. When water techniques are combined with Wind Release techniques, the concussive and overall destructive power is vastly increased. Also, water is efficient in combination with lightning, increasing the flow of electricity into the target.


Inton :: Yin Release

Inton :: Yin Release is one of the basic, Non-Elemental Chakra Natures. This nature is based on the spiritual energy that governs the imagination and can be used to create form out of nothingness. It is typically associated with Genjutsu (Illusionary Techniques), but is present in many types of jutsu. Jutsu that are not based around an elemental nature are derived from the balance of Yin and Yang Release. Changing the ratio of Yin Chakra to Yang Chakra produces various jutsu. Genjutsu utilize a ratio that favors the Yin Release.


Yōton :: Yang Release

Yōton :: Yang Release is one of the basic, Non-Elemental Chakra Natures. This nature is based on the physical energy that governs vitality and can be used to breathe life into form.  It is typically associated with Eijutsu (Medical Techniques), but is present in many types of jutsu. Jutsu that are not based around an elemental nature are derived from the balance of Yin and Yang Release. Changing the ratio of Yin Chakra to Yang Chakra produces various jutsu. Eijutsu utilize a ratio that favors the Yang Release.
