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. This technique is mainly used to restrict the movement of the target by coating a target's body,[1][2][3] and forcibly make them do his bidding by directly channelling its will through them, with this technique 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,[4] kekkei genkai,[5] as well as any other ability they may possess.

Once in contact with a target, they can also absorb[6] the target's chakra and transfer it to others,[7] and even show the target events it has recorded.[7] One drawback of this technique, is that if the target has a strong enough will as in the case of Obito after absorbing Kurama's Yin-half, they can suppress Zetsu's influence, and take advantage of Zetsu being attached to them.[8]


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