The last of Kimimaro's five dances where countless bones rise from underground — which can be as many as thousands, up to the tens of thousands. The blades of bone indiscriminately slaughter whoever stands on the ground's surface. Furthermore, if this fails to bring down his foe, Kimimaro can become one with the bones, which in turn can allow him to attack an enemy unnoticed.


  • Out of all the techniques shown through the Shikotsumyaku abilities, this is the only dance that is ninjutsu, rather than a taijutsu.
  • After injecting himself with Kimimaro's DNA, Kabuto Yakushi gained access to this technique.[2]
