A ninjutsu with pre-eminent destructive power, caused by wildly spinning chakra inside one's palm and compressing it to a high density — the [[Rasengan]]. Using the same essentials, but also rapidly increasing the amount of chakra used, results in the '''Big Ball Rasengan'''. It was created by [[Naruto Uzumaki]] during his training with [[Jiraiya]]. At first, Naruto needed a [[shadow clone]] to form the Big Ball Rasengan and help him wield it. But as he got more skilled with it, Naruto can now wield the attack with one hand, but still needs a shadow clone to help him create it.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 561, page 13</ref> Compressed to an even higher density than before, the chakra is released all at once as soon as the technique hits the target, releasing an extraordinary destructive power.

The Big Ball Rasengan is a more powerful version of the Rasengan.

Overview Edit

In the anime, Naruto created the Big Ball Rasengan during his two-and-a-half years of training with Jiraiya; while training to break out of genjutsu, Naruto accidentally released his chakra and created a huge Rasengan.[2] It uses the same concept of compressing spinning chakra in one's palm as in the original Rasengan, only increasing the amount of chakra involved. Because there is even more chakra being compressed to a higher density, the ball releases its energy immediately on contact, thus increasing its destructive power beyond the Rasengan's.[1]

When Naruto first starts using the Big Ball Rasengan, he needs a shadow clone to help him form and wield it.[3] He is able to wield it with one hand when his skill with it improves, though he still needs a clone's help in its formation.[4]

Usage and Improvement Edit

Like the Rasengan, Naruto improved the Big Ball Rasengan and created a variant with his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. The size and power of his Big Ball Rasengan also improved, with it growing to nearly half the size of the Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan.[5] He can also add Wind Release to it, to create the Big Ball Rasenshuriken.[6]

Senjutsu Influence Edit

Sage Art Big Ball Rasengan

Sage Art: Big Ball Rasengan.

When in Sage Mode, Naruto can use a senjutsu-enhanced version known as Sage Art: Big Ball Rasengan (仙法・大玉螺旋丸, Senpō: Ōdama Rasengan, English TV: Sage Art: Giant Rasengan). As with the original, Naruto uses a shadow clone to help him form the ball. With this senjutsu-version, however, he can have a shadow clone form a Big Ball Rasengan in each of his hands, which he can then pass to the clones for them to wield. The Sage Art: Big Ball Rasengan is much larger than the original, as big as Pain's summons.[7]

Trivia Edit

  • Minato Namikaze's normal Rasengan is roughly the size of the initial Big Ball Rasengan.
  • When Konohamaru used this technique in an OVA, he was able to use it with one hand.
