The Butterfly Chōji Mode is a heightened transformation unique to Chōji Akimichi.
Chōji can enter this mode by converting the calories of his body into chakra, which he can then use to perform techniques. The chakra is shaped into two large butterfly wings, and then compressed into smaller wings. The technique uses an enormous amount of chakra. In this form, he can flap his wings to create a gust of chakra, as well as using some of his clan's high-level techniques, such as the Butterfly Bullet Bombing and also combine it with other techniques.
There are two methods of entering this mode. The first is through use of the Akimichi's Three Coloured Pills, which aggressively convert all of the user's calories into chakra; if the pills are not regulated properly, the user may die from the rapid weight loss. Practised users are able to convert their calories into chakra on their own through a process known as Calorie Control (カロリーコントロール , Karorī Kontorōru); because they are in complete control of how much of their body weight is turned into chakra, it poses less of a risk to the user.
