Used primarily by Suna-nin, this cloth is a tool used to immobolise an opponent. It can also be used as a medium to seal an opponent by placing a sealing tag on it. The shinobi are also able to freely manipulate the cloth. In the anime, the cloth was used as a mean to conceal an escape, as well as defend against attacks. And while drenched in water, it proved an efficient tool against Scorch Release ninjutsu.
