    Blocking Technique Absorption Seal* (封術吸印, Fuujutsu Kyuuin)
    Ninjutsu, Fuuinjutsu, No rank, Defensive, Short range (0-5m)
    User: Pain

    An inexhaustible vortex, absorbing all techniques!!

    By spinning the chakra flow within one's body in the opposite direction, all of the opponent's techniques aimed at oneself will be absorbed. The absorbed chakra is dispersed within the body. Like a bottomless swamp, the power is swallowed.

    [picture of Pain's Preta Realm absorbing Jiraiya's Super-Big Ball Rasengan]
    ↑All techniques are absorbed and made ineffective, regardless of the nature of the chakra.

    *In my opinion, the way this name is written, with the kanji for "technique absorption" placed between the two kanji used to write "seal," emphasises the blocking and stopping aspect of the seal. Technically, it could also have been translated as "Sealing Technique Absorption Seal," but that felt a bit redundant.

    Wind Release: Pressure Damage* (風遁・圧害, Fuuton: Atsugai)
    Ninjutsu, B-rank, Offensive, All ranges
    User: Kakuzu

    A blast of heavy artillery, leaving behind a severe scar!!

    A violent "Wind Release ninjutsu" released by one of Kakuzu's five hearts.
    A tornado-like mass is compressed until it has a very high density and is then released. With the wind pressure raised to its utmost limits, once this technique hits the target, everyone will be swept off their feet~~~. If this technique is used by someone who has mastered Wind "nature transformation," the whirling storm can blow up a vast range, inflicting massive damage on both the target and their surroundings.

    [picture of Kakuzu's mask about to perform this technique]
    ←Because it comes from mask's mouth so sudden, it is extremely difficult to predict the use of this technique.

    Destructive power like that of a natural disaster......!!

    [picture of this attack levelling a forest]
    →An overwhelming mass of wind come forth with a thunderous roar!!The raging wind mows down every tree and gouges the Earth's surface!!

    *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. Atsugai comes from the MSM-04 Acguy (アッガイ, Aggai).

    Wind Release: Spiralling Shuriken (風遁・螺旋手裏剣, Fuuton: Rasen Shuriken)
    Ninjutsu, S-rank, Offensive, Short range (0-5m)
    User: Uzumaki Naruto

    The "Wind" sharpens the "spiral," turning it into a blade who's one hit means certain death!!

    "Extreme"~~ Certainly, that's the most appropriate word for this technique. Adding "Wind" "nature manipulation" to the Rasengan, already boasting tremendous destructive power by having raised "shape transformation" to its utmost limits...!! With this sharp blade of wind, the killing power is drastically increased...!! Its weak point is that one needs to get close to and a hit. On the other hand, there is no-one who can withstand a direct hit. Even so, currently it's only 50% completed. The destructive power it will have once completed is unimaginable!!

    The technique left behind by a great hero is brought to a new height~~!!

    [picture of Naruto using two Shadow Clones to infuse Wind chakra into the Rasengan]
    ↑The completed "Rasengan" is infused with "Wind" chakra!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    [picture of Naruto nearing Kakuzu with the Spiralling Shuriken]
    ←While the "shuriken" is spinning at high speed, it is thrust directly into the opponent's chest~~!!

    The countless blades produced by the violent wind pierce and destroy everything!!

    ↓Countless blades cut into the target!! It's impossible to see through that number of attacks.
    [picture of the Spiralling Shuriken destroying Kakuzu]

    [picture of the vortex created by the Spiralling Shuriken]
    ↑The tornado-like gale resounds with a thunderous roar!! Afterwards, nothing remains but the ruins of the enemy and the silence after the storm.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The "Wind" nature transformation that makes the "spiral" what it should be: the strongest!!

    As the name suggest, its shape resembles that of a giant shuriken. However, it is actually composed of microscopic blades. The wind chakra whirling around the "spiral" is changed into countless blades, all striking the target at once......!!

    [picture of the Wind Release: Rasengan]
    [picture showing how cells are destroyed with the Spiralling Shuriken]
    →↑The chakra, shaped like tiny swords, directly severs the meridians* tying the body's cells together...!!

    Wind Release: Gale Palm (風遁・烈風掌, Fuuton: Reppuushou)
    Ninjutsu, C-rank, Offensive, Supplementary, Short to mid-range (0-10m)
    User: Nagato

    When he presses his hands together, a violent wind sets out faster then the speed of sound!!

    This technique transforms chakra and creates wind. When one's hands are clapped together, this wind is compressed and evolved into a fierce gale. The "Gale Palm" as just a isolated attack has the power to easily knock over a human.
    However, it's true value comes from using it in an attack together with projectile weapons like shuriken or kunai. The speed with which they fly through the air, the power with which they hit, and their ability to wound or even kill are all increased several times!!

    [picture of Konan's Paper Shuriken being accelerated]
    ↑The sudden acceleration of the Paper Shuriken gives them the power to go straight through the enemy with one hit!!

    User: Pain

    Floating in the darkness are virtual images of the "Akatsuki"!!

    The "Akatsuki" members sit down and send out "though waves," converted into chakra. These thought waves are then picked up by Pain, acting as a kind of control tower. This technique amplifies the thought waves and broadcasts them to a specific location through illusionary bodies. The illusionary bodies differ from being mere reflections. While Pain is relaying the members' thoughts, they can still use various techniques.

    [picture of Pain using this technique]
    →The chakra of the Akatsuki members is perceived by Pain. The amplified thought waves are then broadcast through the illusionary bodies.

    *A magic lantern is an archaic type of projector; the ancestor to the modern slide projector.

    [picture of Jiraiya getting up out of Ryuusui's shadow]
    ←By taking a deep breath, the ultrathin body expands again. The victim's temporary paralysis is also cancelled.

    After putting chakra into the victim's shadow, the user makes their body as flat as possible. Then, by becoming one with the shadow, this technique temporarily snatches away the control over the victim's mind and body. The user has to hold their breath, but they can talk through the victim. As soon as the user resumes breathing, the technique is cancelled and their body retakes it original thickness.

    Ninjutsu, C-rank, Supplementary
    User: Jiraiya

    Using a toad's mouth as cover
    A waterside infiltration technique!!

    The user of this infiltration technique summons a "Diving Toad" (潜り蝦蟇, Moguri Gama) from Mt. Myouboku and hides themselves inside its stomach.
    This toad can dive up to 100 metres in fresh water. It is particularly effective when infiltrating an enemy camp surrounded by a lake or river. Inside the stomach is also a chakra-blocking barrier space, protecting the user from detection-type ninjutsu.

    [picture of Jiraiya's arm protruding from the Diving Toad's mouth]

    ↑→Jiraiya crawls out of the barrier space inside the stomach of the "Diving Toad". This is the moment one needs to be most careful for detection-type ninjutsu, but...

    Ninjutsu, C-rank, Offensive, Supplementary, Short to mid-range (0-10m)
    User: Jiraiya

    A sticky bullet, overwhelming those unprepared*
    A hell of movement-restricting oil!!

    A technique that changes chakra prepared inside the body into oil and spits it out as a huge mass. When this extremely sticky oil touches the target, their entire body is covered, preventing them from moving. Furthermore, if a Fire Release technique is thrown at the target after this technique is used, they will be enveloped in flames in an instant.

    [picture of Jiraiya performing the Toad Oil Bullet]
    →↓The "Oil Bullet" covers Konan's body, making it stick!! Because it's oil, simply washing it away with just water won't be easy...!!
    [picture of Konan being covered by Jiraiya's oil]

    *The Japanese for this sentence is 「油断大敵粘着弾」 ("Yudan Taiteki Nenchakudan"). Nenchakudan means "sticky bullet". "Yudan Taiteki" is a Japanese proverb, meaning "unpreparedness is one's greatest enemy". There's a pun involved here: Yudan (油断, unpreparedness, negligence) is written with the kanji for "oil" and "failure" and is pronounced the same as "oil bullet".

    Users: Uzumaki Naruto, Yamato

    A hurricane and a stream of water interweaving
    A shielding curtain of white mist!!

    This combination ninjutsu uses the wild rotation of the "Rasengan" to swallow up the water current created by the "Water Release: Tearing Torrent"*, creating a large quantity of water vapour. Once invoked, a strong wind whirls around inside the highly concentrated mist, turning it into a solid barrier, repelling techniques, attacks, and such. The mist created by the violent rotating of the "Rasengan" also has the effect of taking away the enemy's field of vision. Of course, the mist can be used as a smokescreen when escaping, but the confusion it creates can also be used , for instance, to launch a surprise attack. It can be said that this technique has exceedingly many practical uses.

    [picture of Yamato performing Water Release: Tearing Torrent]
    [picture of Naruto performing Wind Release: Rasengan]
    →Naruto's Wind Release and Yamato's Water release unite!! If one can use multiple natures, it is possible to perform this technique alone.

    User: Hyuuga Neji

    Push the air and shoot it at enemy
    A secret Hyuuga super-fast palm attack!!

    Taking aim at the enemy's vitals and releasing an ultrahigh-speed palm thrust!!

    A "vacuum shell" compressed using the "Gentle Fist" is shot out at the enemy's vitals under tremendous pressure!! A short to mid-range attack that more than covers the weakness of taijutsu

    ↓With the scope of the "Byakugan," the enemy's vitals can be precisely pinpointed!! The targeted enemy will be blown off their feet before they can even notice the impact.
    [pictures of Neji using this technique and hitting Kisame]

    *The Eight Trigrams (Bāgu? in Chinese) come from Taoist cosmology and are closely related to the concept of Yin-Yang.

    There is a Chinese martial art based on this concept: Bāgu?zhǎng (八卦掌, Hakkeshou in Japanese), literally meaning "Eight Trigram Palm". It's an "internal" (n?ijiā, 內家) martial art, like T?ij?qu?n.

    The Hyuuga-style taijutsu is obviously based on this martial art. Not only is this evident from the names of their techniques, but also from the symbolism surrounding them. E.g. when Neji does the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, a Bāgu? diagram appears beneath him.

    User: Aburame Shino

    The Mysterious Destruction Insects* spread out!!
    Swarming towards chakra, they become a sphere!!

    This technique covers the enemy's entire body with the "Mysterious Destruction Insects" living inside the user's body. The chakra sensing "Mysterious Destruction Insects" spread over a wide range. The moment they locate the enemy, the insects, following the user's orders, gather at once. They restrain the enemy and start eating away at his chakra bit by bit. Before long, death will arrive...

    [picture of Shino being surrounded by his bugs]
    [picture of Tobi being covered in Shinos' bugs]
    ↑→The person inside the "Insect Sphere" will taste the fear of having their chakra eaten while they are still alive!!

    *The kanji for Kikaichuu (奇壊蟲), the name of Shino's insects, literally mean "Strange Destruction Insects". Both the first and last kanji of "kikai" appear in words also pronounced a kikai. When written as 奇怪, kikai means "strange," or "mysterious". When written as 毀壊, kikai means "demolish," "destroy".
    I used "mysterious" instead of "strange" because I found it more fitting for the Aburame.

    Hokage-style Sixty-year-old Technique - Kakuan Entering Society with Bliss-bringing Hands* (火影式耳順術 廓庵入鄽垂手, Hokage-shiki Jijun Jutsu - Kakuan Nitten Suisha)
    Ninjutsu, Kekkei Genkai, Supplementary, Short range (0-5m)
    Users: Yamato, Shodai Hokage

    Laid out on the ground is a formaton of ten pillars.
    Supressing even "calamities"!!

    ↓What appears on the palm is the order from the user facing the Bijuu.
    [picture of Yamato holding out his hand with the kanji for "seat" (座, za)** on it]

    A technique that uses the power of the "Wood Release Technique" and forcibly suppresses a Bijuu's chakra. To invoke this technique, it is necessary for the Bijuu or Jinchuuriki to be in the possession of the "Crystal Gem" (結晶石, Kesshouseki) that responds to the Shodai Hokage's chakra. Touching the Bijuu's chakra with their hand, the user then suppresses the chakra inside an area lined with ten pillars.

    *This name requires a lot of explanation. First of all, I'll explain the "jijun" part. This is the Japanese term for a man's sixtieth to sixty-ninth age. It comes from a saying by Confucius: 六十而耳顺 (li?sh? ?r ěr sh?n). It has a variety of interpretations, but the most popular one is that of master Nan Huai-Chin: "At sixty I was able to listen to everything without feeling unhappy". The reasoning behind this is that at sixty, one is able to know clearly the difference between good and bad, allowing one's mind to become calm and thus allowing one to be able to listen to everything without feeling unhappy.
    However it can also be interpreted as "at sixty, my ear was an obedient organ for the reception of truth," and "at sixty, I heard them with docile ears," which might be a bit more relevant to this technique.

    Next is the last part of the name: "Kakuan Nitten Suishu". "Nitten Suishu" comes from comes from a famous series of short poems and accompanying images, called the Ten Bull Pictures (十牛図, Jūgyū-zu; Chinese: Sh?ni?-t?). The pictures and poems are intended to illustrate the stages of Zen discipline. They were drawn by a twelfth-century Chinese Zen master called Ku?ān (廓庵, Kakuan in Japanese). The tenth poem talks about how the fully-enlightened herdsman returns to the city to help others reach enlightenment. This poem is called R?ch?n Chu?shǒu (入鄽垂手, "Nitten Suishu" in Japanese), which can be translated as "entering society with bliss-bringing hands" (i.e. hands that teach how to reach enlightenment).

    **This kanji is probably short for the term "osuwari" (お座り), meaning "sit down". This is the order given to dogs when they are told to sit in Japanese.

    Binding Snake Glare Spell* (蛇睨呪縛, Jagei Jubaku)
    Ninjutsu, C-rank, Offensive, Supplementary, Short range (0-5m)
    Users: Orochimaru, Uchiha Sasuke

    From one's sleeves come two big snakes, capturing the spellbound target!

    Two big summoned snakes crawl out from one's cuffs, and coil around the enemy before one's eyes, capturing them. This technique is great for capturing someone alive, great for inflicting damage by constriction, and if the situation calls for it, it's even great for having the snakes bite the victim with their poison fangs...!! With the summons specified beforehand, the procedure can be shortened by using blood on a summoning "contract seal" (結印, ketsuin), making it possible to invoke the technique immediately

    The person captured~~
    Their fate is in the hands of the user...

    [picture of Sasuke stopping Suigetsu and Juugo]
    [picture of Orochimaru appearing next to Kabuto]
    ↑→Compared to normal summons, these summoned snakes are on a whole other level with intelligence and strength. It is said that even shinobi with great skill are unable to escape from this restraint!

    *Jubaku is really just a Japanese word for "spell," or "curse". However, the kanji literally mean "spell/curse bind". Since this is a restraining technique, I decided to emphasize the "bind" part of the word. The "glare' part of the name also has the additional mean of "keeping someone down with fear".

    User: Deidara

    An explosive art that detonates at the word "Katsu"*!!
    Be that as it may, it is the pinnacle of counterfeiting!!

    This technique makes a Shadow Clone take in "Explosive Clay" and causes it to explode, creating a diversion that can be used to escape. With a "Suicide Bombing Announcement" the enemy's wariness is heightened and this opportunity is used to switch places with a Shadow Clone. A technique that requires one to be adept at verbal tricks; with this foundation of using many "arts" to trifle with the enemy, it certainly fulfils its purpose.

    [picture of Deidara's Suicide Bombing Clone expanding]
    ←"Behold the ultimate art"!! With these words, this ominously squirming body draws the enemy's attention

    *Katsu (喝, "scold") is a shout used in Zen Buddhism to express one's own enlightened state and to induce another person to move beyong rationality and logic and possibly even achieve an initial enlightenment experience.

    Ninjutsu, Hiden, No rank, Supplementary
    User: Kakuzu

    Interweaving one's life with the battlefront
    Squirming jet black tentacles!!

    Using chakra to manipulate black tentacles produced from inside the body itself, this grotesque technique allows for remote attacks. This allows Kakuzu to use a strategy without having to wait for the right oppertunity. Also, by using the tentacles to steal the hearts of other people, one takes in their respective chakra natures, allowing the use of techniques requiring any of the basic five elemental natures. This also gives the user semi-permanent longevity.

    ↓Tentacles with sharp pointed ends can also be used as sutures...
    [picture of Kakuzu using his tentacles to stitch Hidan's head back on]

    [picture of Kakuzu using his tentacles to separate his arm from his body, allowing him to cancel the Shadow Imitation Shuriken]
    ↑By detaching it from the main body, the arm can move about freely like a separate living creature...!!

    [picture of Kakuzu showing off his tentacles]
    ↑By changing freely into, for instance, an elongated shape, one can turn any circumstances into their advantage. When Kakuzu is using "Earth Grudge Fear," he has no blind spots...

    *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. Jiongu comes from the MSN-02 Zeong (ジオング, Jiongu), a mecha that can detach its arms for ranged attacks. The arms remains attached to the main body with wires.

    Ninjutsu, Hiden, No rank, Offensive, All ranges
    User: Hidan

    A person is cursed, but there is only one grave~~**
    An omnious link of injuries!!

    The Curse Technique Hidan acquired from "Jashinism". This absolutely inescapable curse is invoked using the opponent's blood as an intermediary and gives the opponent the exact same injuries as the user receives~~ Because this technique cannot be used without the user themselves getting injured, the only person who can use this more than once is Hidan with his immortal body...

    ↓The first step of this technique is taking the opponent's blood into one's own body!!
    [picture of Hidan licking blood off his scythe]

    [picture of Hidan stepping into his ritual circle]
    ↑The second step is stepping into a circle drawn with the user's own blood. If one is to leave the circle, the effect disappears.

    A ritual that freezes the body in rapturous delight!!

    [picture of Asuma receiving the damage Hidan inflicted on his own leg]
    ↑When wounded while inside the circle, the target receives the same wound~~!!

    *Jujutsu is usually translated as "sorcery," or "incantation". The kanji separately mean "curse technique," or "spell technique". I chose the more literal translation of "curse technique" as it is more fitting.

    **This comes from the Japanese proverb 「人を呪わば穴二つ」(Hito o onowaba ana futatsu), meaning "he who curses someone else will see two graves"; the Japanese equivalent of the English proverb "curses like chickens come home to roost". It basically means that if you do something bad to someone else, it will come back at you.

    User: Nara Shikamaru
    Supplementary; Close; Medium ranges; Rank: none

    Main text

    A combination of a ninjutsu specific to the Nara clan with a ninja tool, this ninja technique is one only Shikamaru's ingeniosity could have produced. He lets the chakra knives absorb his own chakra beforehand, granting more effectiveness to the shadow jutsu. By throwing those weapons, pinning them into the opponent's shadow, the caster can activate Kage Mane no jutsu and compel said opponent to mimic their movements. This ninjutsu also makes up for the added difficulty of efficiency loss should the enemy notice it.

    -To stab someone's shadow, one has to use a sheet of paper for distraction. A conundrum Shikamaru solved by adding explosive tags.

    -Combining Shikamaru's wits with chakra knives, the jutsu shows maximum potentiality increase!

    User: Nara Shikamaru
    Offensive; Supplementary; Close, Medium ranges; Rank: none

    Main text

    A secret technique of the Nara clan, as well as the one among their shadow-employing ninjutsu, with a secondary, offensive purpose that makes use of how the shadows are turned into physical substance. Changing one's shadow into a multitude of razor-sharp spikes, and managing each one of them individually...!! In addition to attacking multiple targets simultaneously, the shadow threads are embroidered into them (tn: ouch!), robbing them of their mobility. Since it's a physical attack, just like Kage Mane no jutsu (Shadow Imitation technique), one cannot manage to apprehend someone without harming them. But conversely, its fast activation and sustaining period make it excellent for emergency capture.

    The shadows turned into razor-sharp spikes pierce through multiple enemies!!

    Picture comment

    -Initially, the jutsu's made to pin down its target, but depending on the opponent, it is also possible to kill them off in one blow. A particularity that proves most useful for logistical support.

    Using roots to glide through the ground, this is a espionage and subterranean travel technique~~!!

    This infiltration technique is characteristic of Zetsu. It allows him to merge his body with the ground and flora and travel at high speed.
    His insectivorous plant-like shell has the ability to merge with the ground, because it is tinged with his chakra. Then, using the underground network of organic matter, consisting of things like plant roots and water veins, he can travel everywhere with high speed. While using this technique, his presence is completely concealed. No person would be able to perceive Zetsu's existence.

    [picture of Zetsu watching from a tree trunk]
    [picture of Zetsu appearing from a branch, next to Tobi]
    ↑→Zetsu can conceal himself in trees, sand, and the like. When seeing fellow shinobi fight, this technique conceals his presence.

    *Mayflies are insects, well-known for having a very short lifespan. Adult mayflies only life for half an hour to a day, depending on the species.

    Kagerou may also be short for "usubakagerou" (薄羽蜉蝣), the Japanese name for the adult antlion (these adults have no wide-spread name in English). The larv? of this insect, the antlions proper, are well-known for burrowing sand pits in which they trap ants and such. These larv? (and the pits they dig) are called arijigoku (蟻地獄, "ant hell") in Japanese.

    Supplementary; Close, Medium ranges; Rank: none

    Main text

    In comparison to Kage Nui, a jutsu in the same vein of utilization of materialized shadows, the emphasis is put on subtlety in the shadows' movements. Basically, one turns their shadow into countless, slender tendrils and extends them, so they can be pulled, converging towards the hand. Additionally, it is also possible to use the hand's dexterity to pick up and throw a weapon such as a kunai with the tendril-like shadows. The different ways it can be used would fill a book.

    Captions

    -The squirming, elaborate shadow tendrils move at the caster's demand!!

    -They congregate in one place, following one's directions

    Picture comments

    -From numbers and length to orientation, the extending tendrils are at one's beck and call!

    -Used in synergy with ninja tools, the jutsu displays maximal efficiency! Its management is minute enough to allow accurate insertion into a small aperture.

    Possible because of the very existence of Karin's superior perception ability, this enemy-searching jutsu extends over an ultra-large scale. Closing her eyes and opening her inner eye, she perceives any strange chakra activity within a 10 kilometer (tn: that's roughly 6 miles) radius. In addition, should there be a particular chakra setup, she can sense its location and movements with even greater accuracy.

    A technique that consists of pouring one's chakra into a scrap of paper in a split second, hardening and sharpening it, so it can be used as a shuriken.

    User: Hatake Kakashi

    Changing the dimension in one's field of vision.
    A lavish, unparalleled dimensional doujutsu!!

    Kakashi's original doujutsu, released from the "Mangekyou Sharingan". It allows one to transfer anything to another dimension. If one spends a lot of time and trains one's chakra over and over again, this technique can be invoked. The target is enveloped with a barrier space, and the user concentrates their mind to what they gaze at... The target can struggle helplessly, but against this technique no defence is possible. No matter what, the space will distort and draw the target in.

    [picture of Kakashi's Mangekyou Sharingan]
    →One glare with the "Mangekyou Sharingan". The barrier's location and size can be specified at will.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ↓The aim is a little off the mark, hitting the arm... Nevertheless, that part of the arm is pulled apart into small pieces and send to another dimension in an instant...!!
    [picture of Deidara's elbow being hit by Kamui]

    [picture sequence of Deidara's elbow disappearing]
    ↑When the technique is invoked, the space at the centre of the barrier is distorted and the target inside the barrier is drawn in completely... There is no technique that can compete against this one. It's a dreadful technique that, with skilled use, can even pull an entire human being into another dimension.

    The scenery becomes twisted. And after that~~~!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The trap created by great power

    The "Mangekyou Sharingan" is a doujutsu that, with continuous usage, burdens the user with the loss of their eyesight. Since this is the source of "Kamui," using it in rapid succession puts Kakashi's body at risk as well.

    [picture of Kakashi holding his hand over his eye]
    ↑Kakashi obtained his "Sharingan" though a transplant. The strain his body suffers may be far more severe than the a member of the "Uchiha clan" would suffer.

    *Kamui refers to the power, might, and authority of the Gods. That which makes the Gods gods. "Kamu" (神) comes from "kami," meaning "god" or "gods". "I" (威) is a kanji with a complex meaning. The dictionary I use describes it as 「人をおそれ従わせる力。」 ("the power to compel people to do one's bidding through fear"). It also describes it as 「威厳があってしかも荒々しくない。君子の理想的な人柄をいう。」 ("dignity without roughness. The ideal personality of a man of virtue").
    I believe it would be best translated as "authority," "majesty," or "might".

By adding Wind nature, the vigour of the fire is increased, causing a burning so tremendous, it will reduce the are to a field ravaged by fire...!!

    →The raging flames strike the enemy from underfoot!! Because the extent is wide, this technique is difficult to evade.

    *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. Zukokku comes from the MSM-07 Z'Gok (ズゴック, Zugokku).

    User: Deidara

    By sculpting and blowing up, the enemy is destroyed!
    Ultimate art, interweaving destruction with plastic beauty!!

    Art~~ That is, an object with a certain form that, in an instant, is bereaved of that shape and sublimates... in other words, an "explosion"!
    Deidara's characteristic technique takes that sort of definite view of art and puts it to practical use by uniting it with ninjutsu... That is "Exploding Clay". The clay is endowed with explosive properties by biting into it with one of the several mouth found across Deidara's body and mixing it with chakra. In a flash, the clay, moulded into various forms, gives rise to a giant explosion with a yell of "Katsu"*. Because the statues can be remotely controlled at will with chakra, it is possible to launch an attack from anywhere, be it land sea, or air. Also, by varying the chakra mixed in with the clay, one can create a great variety of "Explosive Clay," all with different effects and scope.

    [picture of Deidara consuming clay with the mouth on his hand]
    ←He can easily use the "mouths" in either of his hands, but he uses the left one the most.

    [picture of Deidara saying his infamous quote "art is a bang"**]
    ↑The user can make the clay explode at any time.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Depending on the of chakra kneaded through, there are different methods of "Exploding Clay"!!

    ●C1●
    This small-sized "Exploding Clay", its explosive power restrained to the utmost, is mainly used for covert actions, surprise attacks, and the like. The design of the bombs often takes the shape of deformed beetles.

    ●C2●
    While the user is riding on the back of this giant dragon***-shaped "Exploding Clay," the target is pursued by the guided missiles spit from its mouth! It is utilised to its greatest effect when combined with landmines, placed beforehand.

    ●C3●
    [picture of Deidara detonating his C3 bomb above Sunagakure]
    ↑Deidara himself calls this his "pride". The explosive power is especially great, capable of even destroying a village!

    It's a simple type, dropped down from the sky, but when only considering explosive power, it boasts the highest level. The explosion's scale and beauty, and the humanoid design of the "Explosive Clay," doing away with any and all excess lines, are something to be proud of.

    ●C4●
    When this gigantic puppet, modelled after Deidara himself, ruptures, extremely small bombs are released and scattered across a wide range. When these nano-sized bombs, impossible to be seen with ordinary human eyes, are inhaled, they will set themselves everywhere inside the body. The countless small explosions occurring throughout the body will destroy the target's body from within at the cellular level. The person themselves will be dead before they notice the attack!!

    [picture of Deidara's C4 about to explode]
    ←Using the blast of the figure's explosion, the tiny bombs are scattered across a vast range!!

    *Katsu (喝, "scold") is a shout used in Zen Buddhism to express one's own enlightened state and to induce another person to move beyond rationality and logic and possibly even achieve an initial enlightenment experience.
    **"Art is a bang" (芸術は爆発だ, "Geijutsu wa bakuhatsu da") is actually a quote of the famous Japanese artist Okamoto Tarou (岡本太郎). A lot of Deidara's character and artstyle is based on Okamoto and his works.
    ***The dragon meant here is the Western-style dragon (ドラゴン, doragon), not the Japanese (or more generally Asian) dragon (龍, Ryuu).
