With this technique, the user can take on the properties of a nearby object, material, or substance, and any of its special characteristics. For example, Nagare took on the properties of a rock and was then able to use his imitation of other techniques, like Assimilation: Rock Blizzard and Assimilation: Sand Waterfall Funeral. He was also able to turn his skin to rock, either entirely or partly, and could even survive being blown to bits by simply assembling himself.
During the Fourth Shinobi World War, the White Zetsu Army is seen using this ability as well; allowing them to take on the property of the red soil around them. This gave them poisonous qualities, that made them into even more formidable soldiers. However, the adverse effects of this was that they also gained the soil's high conductibility to lightning-type attacks.
- Shinra Banshō (森羅万象; Literally meaning "All-Covering Forests and Ten Thousand Things") is a Buddhist idiom which has come to mean "All of Nature" or "All of Creation".
