    We have all seen Naruto use Oodama Rasengan quite a few times, I would like to know what exactly it is... seeing as it never is really explained. I assume it's stronger than Rasengan (normal), but other than that I don't get what's with the fancy epithet and stuff.

    Any enlightening thoughts on this? :confused:

    He thought that "rasengan" was too plain and added something to make it sound cooler. Kinda like super buffet instead of just buffet.

    Probably the combination of two Rasengans into one, considering that he used a kage bunshin to use it when he can make a normal one perfectly with one hand.

    Or, it could be just him imputting more chakra into the attack, and he needs a kage bunshin to control the chakra.

    Oodama = big. =\ Nothing more to it.

    It's a bigger Rasengan, with more chakra and two people holding it together instead of one. No biggie.

    - not if you've read the chapter more than once ;)

    ...anyway, I agree with what Meh is saying - if it were two normal rasengans put together, it seems unreasonable that they would form a large unified rasengan but would retain the shape of two smaller rasengans in close proximity; one would also question the interference with the two rasengans together as the chakra where the rasengans meet would be in opposing directions. IMO if there were two smaller rasengans put together the shape would resemble Tsunade's upper body rather than a big rasengan...

    on another note: Naruto seems to like super sizing jutsus (tajuu kage bunshin, oodama rasengan)

    i think that it is a stronger rasengan...
    also i noticed that instead of naruto pushing the rasengan alone... his kage bunshin was pushing it too for oodama rasengan...

    Funny. People assume this from the fight with Itachi, just because they see him with an already formed Rasengan in one hand. And then, in the fight with they deidara, we see him make a rasengan, with two hands as always.

    But yeah, he can do it one-handed alright. He just uses the bunshin for speed. Because it's logical than doing a bunshin and then a rasengan is faster than just doing a rasengan.

    Oodama is bigger, thats about all that has been shown so far. It could spin faster and the chakra could be more dense, I don't know. It may or may not require the bunshin. He used his hand and the bunshins hand to attack with it though so its looking like he does.

    The Oodama Rasengan is a normal Rasengan charged with the Kyuubi's chakra. His own Chakra that forms the inner ball and the Kyuubi chakra that forms the outer ball are different and dont mix well (think trying to add oil to water, one stays on the bottom, the other on the top). It is the extreme version of the Rasengan that only he can do. Theoretically it is extremely hot (Kyuubi's molten chakra), and it is obviously massively powerful.

    It is one of Naruto's trump card moves, used mostly for assassination. If you get hit with the Oodama Rasengan, you will die. Plain and simple. (Sasuke got is forehead protector hit, not his stomach)

    That could be the reason, although I don't agree, I'd say the opposite, one handed is faster than 2. And also notice, whenever he's used a clone to make a rasengan, the clone it's been there to do the chakra spinning only, while in this one(oodama) both narutos are "holding" the rasengan and making contact with it. So that means, he puts so much power into this rasengan, that he needs additional help to perform it properly. If he could do it with one hand, he would, it'ts obvious it would be faster, just look at how fast he made a normal one with one hand against one of itachis bunshin.
    Lastly against Deidara, whay did he make a clone you may ask? My theory is simple, from the very start he wanted the head of the bird, the fact he made a clone was probably to just intimidate Deidara and make him jump out of the way instead of counterattacking, so he would get gaara back easily.
    Excuse me for my bad english

    I was being sarcastic, of course one handed is faster (perhaps I should have used [sarcasm] tags). If he doesn't do it one handed is because he can't.
