This is a unique ability possessed by Black Zetsu, which allows him to take advantage of his malleable body to coat himself over a target. By coating a target's body, Zetsu is capable of performing a variety of feats including controlling the target, and even stabilising their life-force allowing them to live following a mortally-taxing event. In possession of the target's body, Zetsu is also able to use target's techniques,[1] kekkei genkai,[2] as well as any other ability they may possess.

Once in contact with a target, they can also absorb the target's chakra and transfer it to others,[3] and even show the target events it has recorded.[3] One drawback of this technique, is that if the target has a strong enough will, they can suppress Zetsu's influence, and take advantage of Zetsu being attached to them.


  • As shown with Obito, any invulnerability Black Zetsu has, such as immunity to the Infinite Tsukuyomi, is transferred to its host at the time.
