The Lightning Release: Double Lariat (雷遁・絶牛雷犂熱刀, らいとん・ダブルラリアット, Raiton: Daburu Rariatto) is a stronger version of the Lightning Release: Lariat, whereby two users perform the technique from both behind and in front of the opponent, creating a scissor effect. Both users must use the exact same amount of opposing strength or the target will merely bend.[2] When successfully done, the force of the technique will decapitate the target and send their head flying several metres into the air.


  • As with many Kumogakure techniques, this technique has an English name given kanji that somewhat match the pronunciation. Usually, the kanji would be pronounced as Zetsugyū Rairi Nettō.
  • This technique is used as a test to see who will be worthy to become the Raikage's tag-team partner, as the potential candidate must be able to synchronise their strength with the Raikage. As such, this technique is feared even outside of Kumogakure.[3]
