<section begin=summary />A [[ninja]]'s use of [[:Category:Tools|weaponry]] in combat is never given a special name in the ''Naruto'' series, but in the real world it is sometimes called {{translation|"'''[[wikipedia:Kōga-ryū#Arts of the Kōka|bukijutsu]]'''"|武器術|lit meaning=Weapon Techniques}}. All ninja use a weapon at some time or another during their careers, but not all do so regularly.<section end=summary />
<section begin=summary />{{translation|'''[[Bukijutsu]]'''|武器術|lit meaning=Weapon Techniques}} are techniques that entail the use of any handheld weapons in combat, whether the users be [[shinobi]] or [[samurai]]. Students of the [[Academy]] are taught the use of [[Tools|ninja weapons and tools]] like [[shuriken]] and [[kunai]], learning how to throw and wield them through target practice.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 221, page 7</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 223, page 17</ref><ref>''Naruto'' episode 216</ref><section end=summary />
 
   
Bukijutsu can be used in [[Collaboration Techniques|combination]] with [[taijutsu]], [[ninjutsu]], [[genjutsu]], [[chakra flow]], and even other weapons in order to achieve more devastating effects, such as the [[flail]] used in conjunction with the [[Infinite Armour]],<ref>''Naruto'' episode 218</ref> [[Kakashi Hatake]]'s use of [[Lightning Release|lightning-infused]] kunai,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 595, page 17</ref> [[Asuma Sarutobi]]'s use of [[Flying Swallow|wind-infused]] [[Chakra Blades|chakra knives]] for close-range combat, and [[Danzō Shimura]]'s [[Wind Release: Vacuum Blade|wind-infused weapons]]. [[Kosuke Maruboshi]]'s [[Leaf-Style Willow]] technique combines kenjutsu with genjutsu. [[Orochimaru]] was also able to effectively combine the sight-impairing effects of the [[Bringer-of-Darkness Technique]] with shuriken to increase the likelihood of hitting his intended target. In addition to this, [[fūinjutsu]] are often used in conjunction with bukijutsu, as it provides [[Summoning: Lightning Flash Blade Creation|a quick and easy means of transporting and using weapons]]. Because of this versatility, bukijutsu is employed in a vast array of ninja techniques.

Weapons can be just as useful on the battlefield as any other [[jutsu]] in a ninja's arsenal, either due to the weapon's design, its special abilities, or the unique way in which a ninja combines it with his or her other skills; ninja frequently coat their weapons with their [[chakra]] to alter the weapon's properties, a process called [[chakra flow]]. Over time, a particular weapon or set of weapons may gain its own fame for one reason or another, as with the [[Treasured Tools of the Sage of Six Paths]]. Weapons of all types, whether common or rare, are frequently [[seal]]ed within scrolls or some other flat surface for ease of transport and accessibility in combat. The anime calls the sealing and unsealing of weapons the [[Enclosing Technique]] and the [[Unsealing Technique]], respectively.
   
Bukijutsu, in some form, is used by almost all shinobi. [[Tenten]] is a notable user of bukijutsu, as are the [[Gold and Silver Brothers]], [[Kinkaku]] and [[Ginkaku]], who were well known for their usage of the [[Treasured Tools of the Sage of the Six Paths]]. In bukijutsu, [[Hidden Kunai Mechanism|weapons can also be combined with mechanisms]] to aid in missions and combat. In the anime, [[Seimei]], the [[Takumi Village]] founder, was also considered a very powerful bukijutsu maker and user.

To be able to create new and powerful weapons makes one prized to one's village, allies, or customers; in the anime, the [[Takumi Village]] was once the world's top provider of ninja weaponry.

== Subcategories ==
=== Bōjutsu ===
+
Some types of weapons are used often enough in ''Naruto'' to be considered a specialised discipline within the broader "bukijutsu" classification:
[[File:Transformation Adamantine Staff.PNG|190px|thumb|The Adamantine Staff.]]
+
*To use a [[shuriken]] or a [[kunai]], usually as projectile weaponry, is called {{translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:shurikenjutsu|shurikenjutsu]]'''"|手裏剣術|lit meaning=sword hidden in the hand techniques}}. All ninja are taught some amount of shurikenjutsu from a young age, with members of the [[Uchiha clan]] being noted specialists. Even those who without any special propensity for shurikenjutsu keep a supply of shuriken and kunai with them for every mission.
{{translation|'''[[Wikipedia:Bōjutsu|Bōjutsu]]'''|術|lit meaning=Staff Techniques}} are techniques that involve the use of staffs for close-range fighting. The most notable user of such techniques was none other than the [[Hokage|Third Hokage]], [[Hiruzen Sarutobi]]. By using his technique to [[Transformation: Adamantine Staff|transform]] the [[Monkey King: Enma|Monkey King, Enma]] into a large staff, Hiruzen could use this art, which he was particularly skilled in, shown in his match against [[Orochimaru]]. With his staff techniques, he was even able to break the [[Wood Release]] of the First Hokage, [[Hashirama Senju]].
+
*Wielding a [[sword]] is called {{translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:kenjutsu|kenjutsu]]'''"|術|lit meaning=Sword Technique}}. It is one of the more common weapons used in ''Naruto'', being especially popular amongst ninja of [[Kumogakure]] and [[Kirigakure]]; the latter is even famous for its [[Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist]].
{{-}}
+
*The use of [[explosive tag]]s, whether as traps or as ways to make projectiles deadlier, is similar to the real world {{translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:Kayakujutsu|kayakujutsu]]'''"|火薬術|lit meaning=Gunpowder Techniques}}. [[Hanzō]]'s fighting style makes a heavier use of explosive tags than most ninja, combining them with his [[Fire Release]] to create [[Fire Release: Exploding Flame Formation|crippling technique]]s.
+
*The use of a staff or [[Wikipedia:bō|bō]] in close-range combat is called {{translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:Bōjutsu|bōjutsu]]'''"|棒術|lit meaning=Staff Techniques}}. Members of the [[Akimichi clan]] are often seen using a bō in battle. The [[Third Hokage]]'s personal [[Summoning Technique|summon]], [[Enma]], can [[Transformation: Adamantine Staff|transform]] the into a large staff, which the Third wields with great skill.
=== Kayakujutsu ===
+
*To use a [[puppet]] in combat for any variety of reasons requires the '''[[Puppet Technique]]''', an ability without any real world equivalent. Although ninja from several different villages have been seen manipulating puppets, it is most popular with ninja of [[Sunagakure]].
[[File:The Exploding Tags About To Latch Onto Nagato 2.PNG|190px|thumb|Hanzō using kayakujutsu.]]
+
*The use of a [[gunbai|war fan]], whether as a blunt weapon or as a type of shield, is similar to the real world {{Translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:Tessenjutsu|tessenjutsu]]'''"|鉄扇術|lit meaning=Iron-fan Technique}}. Ninja of [[Sunagakure]], such as [[Temari]], more often use war fans to facilitate their long-range [[wind]]-based [[ninjutsu]].
{{translation|'''[[Wikipedia:Kayakujutsu|Kayakujutsu]]'''|火薬術|lit meaning=Gunpowder Techniques}} are techniques that involve the use of explosives. A common variation of kayakujutsu is the usage of [[explosive tag]]s. Often shinobi will attach these detonating tags to their weapons (usually a kunai) in order to make them deadlier. [[Hanzō]], in particular, combines explosive tags into his [[Fire Release]], creating a [[Explosive Tag Technique|deadly technique]] which, even when avoided, can cause permanent damage, as it did to [[Nagato]]'s legs.
+
*The use of a [[kusarigama]] is called {{translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:Kusarigamajutsu|kusarigamajutsu]]'''"|鎖鎌術|lit meaning=Chain Sickle Technique}}. Only [[Hanzō]] has been shown using a kusarigama with any amount of regularity, though [[Hidan]]'s [[Triple-Bladed Scythe]] is wielded in a manner similar to kusarigama.
{{-}}
+
*To use a [[Wikipedia:Bow and arrow|bow and arrow]] as a long-range weapon is called {{translation|"'''[[Wikipedia:Kyūjutsu|kyūjutsu]]'''"|弓術|lit meaning=Bow Technique}}. Bow and arrows are used very rarely in ''Naruto'', and when they are they are typically some sort of [[chakra]]-based substance that is formed during combat rather than carried into it; examples include [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s [[Susanoo]] and [[Kidōmaru]]'s [[Spider War Bow: Terrible Split]].
 
=== Kenjutsu ===

{{translation|'''[[Wikipedia:Kusarigamajutsu|Kusarigamajutsu]]'''|鎖鎌術|lit meaning=Kusarigama Technique}} is a rarely used form of bukijutsu which uses the [[kusarigama]]. A notable user of this art is [[Hanzō]], who took on the sword master, [[Mifune]], with this technique. Hanzō was noted to use an unorthodox method, swinging the sickle with the chain rather than the weighted end, as is the most common and effective manner of using kusarigamajutsu. Hanzō also poisoned the sickle of his kusarigama, making it much more lethal to the point where even a single blow could decide a fight. [[Tenten]] has also displayed competence with this unique form of weapons technique and [[Jiga]] was also proficient with a kusarigama combining this skill with his [[Magnet Ninja Art]].
 
{{-}}
 
 
=== Kyūjutsu ===
 
[[File:Spiderwarbowhorriblesplit.jpg|190px|thumb|Kidōmaru using kyūjutsu.]]
 
{{translation|'''[[Wikipedia:Kyūjutsu|Kyūjutsu]]'''|弓術|lit meaning=Bow Technique}}, another technique rarely seen in the ninja world, is one where the user will utilise a [[Bow & Arrow|bow and arrow]] to attack targets from long-range. The most notable user of this art is [[Sasuke Uchiha]], who was taught archery from a young age.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 580, page 10</ref> In the present day, however, he mainly uses archery through his [[Susanoo]] technique. Archery seems to require a great deal of precision and aim. [[Kidōmaru]], while using his [[Cursed Seal Level 2]], uses his [[Spider War Bow: Terrible Split]], a type of kyūjutsu. He was skilled enough with it to leave [[Neji Hyūga]], a master of the [[Byakugan]], near-death.
 
{{-}}
 
 
=== Tessenjutsu ===
 
[[File:Prop temarifan.jpg|thumb|Temari with her Giant Folding Fan.]]
 
{{Translation|'''[[Wikipedia:Tessenjutsu|Tessenjutsu]]'''|鉄扇術|lit meaning=Iron-fan Technique}}, is the martial art of the Japanese war fan. It is based on the use of the solid iron fan or the folding iron fan, and has been seen being used predominately by [[Madara Uchiha]] of [[Konohagakure]] who wields a [[gunbai]] and [[Temari]] of [[Sunagakure]] who wields a [[Giant Folding Fan]]. They are extremely durable and as weapons, are not made out of materials that a normal fan would be, thus, their use can applied in various manners ranging from long to short-ranged attacks. It would appear that tessenjutsu is commonly taught within Sunagakure as seen during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]].
 
{{-}}
 
 
== Other Uses ==
 
[[File:Uchihagaeshi.png|190px|thumb|Madara using his gunbai for his [[Uchiha Return]] technique.]]
 
Outside of the traditional techniques of bukijutsu, shinobi have come up with other methods to employ ninja tools. [[Might Guy]], for example is extraordinarily skilful with his [[Sōshūga]], being able to effectively employ it against [[Obito Uchiha]] during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]]. His use of this weapon is particularly unique in that he could use them to fight [[Kisame]] who was using [[Samehada]], a sword.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 258, pages 4, 8</ref> Other shinobi, such as Kinkaku, Ginkaku, and the Seven Ninja Swordsman of the Mist, base their fighting style around the utilisation of their weapon's special abilities. For example, [[Zabuza Momochi]]'s [[Kubikiribōchō]] can regenerate by using the blood of those it has slain. Therefore, Zabuza makes every effort to cut his foes and draw blood.
 
 
[[File:Tobi using shuriken.PNG|190px|left|thumb|Obito using shurikenjutsu and [[Kamui]] in conjunction.]]
 
[[Madara Uchiha]] also utilised unique forms of bukijutsu, employing a [[wikipedia:Kama (weapon)|kama]] during his fight with [[Hashirama Senju]], and both he and [[Obito Uchiha]] can utilise [[gunbai]] in close-range combat. Madara himself incorporates his gunbai with his [[Uchiha Return|ninjutsu techniques]] while Obito, on the other hand, uses it in an unorthodox fashion as a flail and a defence mechanism, using it to block [[Naruto Uzumaki]]'s [[Rasengan]] and Guy's Sōshūga. Obito will also use shurikenjutsu combined with his [[Kamui]] technique, allowing him to eject several [[Fūma Shuriken|large shuriken]], without warning, to defeat his foes. He has also been shown using shuriken as melee weapons, which is unique to him.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 608, page 14</ref>
 
 
[[File:Seimei.png|190px|thumb|Seimei using his weapons.]]
 
Bukijutsu is also employed in certain kekkei genkai. [[Toroi]], of Kumogakure, would use his [[Magnet Release]] kekkei genkai to magnetise his large, specialised shuriken, causing the struck target to become magnetised. One hit to the body will cause a magnetic field within the said body, making it an easy target for any further magnetised weapons to be drawn to it. However, each time the magnetism is transferred, it weakens. Additionally, the [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] technique of the [[Uchiha Clan]], [[Susanoo]], will manifest unique spirit weapons when mature enough. Bukijutsu is also employed in [[Minato Namikaze]]'s [[Space–Time Ninjutsu]], making use of [[Space-time kunai|specialised kunai]] to allow him to move around using the technique, or to change the course of an opponent's technique.
 
 
In the anime, [[Seimei]], the founder of the Takumi Village, created four unique weapons which, when used together, were considered by the village to be the "Ultimate Weapon". These were the [[Garian Sword]], the [[Infinite Armour]], the [[Weaknessless Soaring Shortswords]], and an unnamed longsword. When used together, Seimei was able to fight on par with [[Gaara]], who was the jinchūriki of [[Shukaku]] at the time. Also in the anime, [[Kazuma]] and [[Sora]] display proficiency in using [[Chakra Enhanced Triple-Bladed Claw|triple-bladed claws]].
 
 
=== Puppetry ===

{{Main with-include|Puppet}}
 
 
=== Manipulated Tools ===
 
{{main|Manipulated Tools}}
 
[[File:Tenten.jpg|190px|thumb|Tenten with two weapon scrolls.]]
 
Tenten's fighting style is completely reliant on her own unique applications of bukijutsu. Because of her skill with [[fūinjutsu]], she seals her weapons into an assortment of scrolls, allowing her to perform various techniques unique to herself. For example, she can toss her larger scrolls into the air, causing the tools sealed within to [[Manipulated Tools: Heavenly Chain of Destruction|rain down on her target]]. In the anime, her [[Twin Rising Dragons]] technique allows her to assault her foe with an endless barrage of ninja tools. She can also use this style of fighting as a [[Summoning: Iron Protection Wall|defence mechanism]] should the situation call for it.
 
 
== Trivia ==
 
* Whilst the term 'bukijutsu' itself has not actually been used in the series, the use of weapons has been seen throughout the franchise.
 
* The [[wikipedia:Kōga-ryū|Kōga-ryū]], a historical school of ninjutsu located in the region of [[wikipedia:Kōka City|Kōka]], taught {{translation|''Kakushi bukijutsu''|隠し武器術|lit meaning=Hidden Weapons Techniques}}, with several sub-groups, such as kenjutsu (sword techniques), bōjutsu (long staff techniques), and kyūjutsu (archery).
 
* Though he is not a noted bukijutsu user, in the OVA of the fight between [[Madara Uchiha]] and [[Hashirama Senju]], on the game ''[[Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations]]'', Hashirama can be seen summoning a vast amount of swords and other ninja tools from one of his giant scrolls.

A ninja's use of weaponry in combat is never given a special name in the Naruto series, but in the real world it is sometimes called "bukijutsu" (武器術, Literally meaning: Weapon Techniques). All ninja use a weapon at some time or another during their careers, but not all do so regularly.

Weapons can be just as useful on the battlefield as any other jutsu in a ninja's arsenal, either due to the weapon's design, its special abilities, or the unique way in which a ninja combines it with his or her other skills; ninja frequently coat their weapons with their chakra to alter the weapon's properties, a process called chakra flow. Over time, a particular weapon or set of weapons may gain its own fame for one reason or another, as with the Treasured Tools of the Sage of Six Paths. Weapons of all types, whether common or rare, are frequently sealed within scrolls or some other flat surface for ease of transport and accessibility in combat. The anime calls the sealing and unsealing of weapons the Enclosing Technique and the Unsealing Technique, respectively.

To be able to create new and powerful weapons makes one prized to one's village, allies, or customers; in the anime, the Takumi Village was once the world's top provider of ninja weaponry.

Subcategories Edit

Some types of weapons are used often enough in Naruto to be considered a specialised discipline within the broader "bukijutsu" classification:

  • To use a shuriken or a kunai, usually as projectile weaponry, is called "shurikenjutsu" (手裏剣術, Literally meaning: sword hidden in the hand techniques). All ninja are taught some amount of shurikenjutsu from a young age, with members of the Uchiha clan being noted specialists. Even those who without any special propensity for shurikenjutsu keep a supply of shuriken and kunai with them for every mission.
  • Wielding a sword is called "kenjutsu" (剣術, Literally meaning: Sword Technique). It is one of the more common weapons used in Naruto, being especially popular amongst ninja of Kumogakure and Kirigakure; the latter is even famous for its Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist.
  • The use of explosive tags, whether as traps or as ways to make projectiles deadlier, is similar to the real world "kayakujutsu" (火薬術, Literally meaning: Gunpowder Techniques). Hanzō's fighting style makes a heavier use of explosive tags than most ninja, combining them with his Fire Release to create crippling techniques.
  • The use of a staff or in close-range combat is called "bōjutsu" (棒術, Literally meaning: Staff Techniques). Members of the Akimichi clan are often seen using a bō in battle. The Third Hokage's personal summon, Enma, can transform the into a large staff, which the Third wields with great skill.
  • To use a puppet in combat for any variety of reasons requires the Puppet Technique, an ability without any real world equivalent. Although ninja from several different villages have been seen manipulating puppets, it is most popular with ninja of Sunagakure.
  • The use of a war fan, whether as a blunt weapon or as a type of shield, is similar to the real world "tessenjutsu" (鉄扇術, Literally meaning: Iron-fan Technique). Ninja of Sunagakure, such as Temari, more often use war fans to facilitate their long-range wind-based ninjutsu.
  • The use of a kusarigama is called "kusarigamajutsu" (鎖鎌術, Literally meaning: Chain Sickle Technique). Only Hanzō has been shown using a kusarigama with any amount of regularity, though Hidan's Triple-Bladed Scythe is wielded in a manner similar to kusarigama.
  • To use a bow and arrow as a long-range weapon is called "kyūjutsu" (弓術, Literally meaning: Bow Technique). Bow and arrows are used very rarely in Naruto, and when they are they are typically some sort of chakra-based substance that is formed during combat rather than carried into it; examples include Sasuke Uchiha's Susanoo and Kidōmaru's Spider War Bow: Terrible Split.
